How long can I book Kaj for?

You can book him for the whole day to play your ceremony, drinks reception and evening reception if you should wish - Kaj plays over 5 hours of material, so he won't repeat a song and will keep the music varied throughout the day! Or, you may just want to book him for one part such as the ceremony alone - the choice is yours! 


How to book

1) Contact us for a tailored quote
Contact us with the date of your event, your venue and an approximate time you'd like Kaj to start playing (we can refine times at a later stage, should you decide to book). We'll then send you a tailored quote. If you're unsure of details at this stage then we can send you a general pricelist.

2) Let us know if you'd like to book
We'll ask you to read our Terms & Conditions, and then confirm by email that you accept the Terms and wish to proceed with booking. We'll then send you an invoice asking for a 20% non-refundable deposit to confirm your booking. Kaj will then be officially booked for your special occasion! 

3) Final checks & remaining balance
Three weeks before your event we'll be in touch to double check all information so that you can be sure every detail is accounted for. We'll also email you an invoice to settle the remaining amount which we ask you pay before your event takes place (please note this is a new procedure as of 18/10/2017. If you booked Kaj prior to this date, then you can still follow the old terms and make payment anywhere up to 30 days after your event if you wish).

4) The big day! 
Kaj will arrive at the time agreed and play you some fantastic music to make your day special. All you have to do is relax and enjoy!

Your Wedding Ceremony

There are many opportunites to add music to your Ceremony. Kaj provides subtle and gentle music, creating a welcoming atmosphere on your special day. 

How music works at your ceremony...
It's your choice when you want music played at your ceremony, however, a typical ceremony that Kaj plays looks a little like this:

• 5-6 songs as guests are seated and groom awaits bride’s entrance

• 1 song for the grand entrance

• 1 song for the signing of the register

• 1 song for the married couple’s exit

Song choices
You can choose songs from Kaj’s live music setlist, but don’t worry if your favourite song isn’t on there... Kaj can learn it especially for your day! And, if you need any advice on song choices Kaj will be happy to advise you.

When do I confirm song choices for my ceremony?
If you're having a non-religious ceremony, your registrar will probably ask for your song choices at least 6 months before your wedding day. We request that you let us know your song choices before confirming with the registrar. 

Do church ceremonies allow popular music?
Some churches only allow traditional hymns, so booking Kaj to play popular songs may not be suitable. Please check with whoever is conducting your service before confirming your booking with us.

I'm not sure if my venue allows amplification?
Kaj's electric piano requires amplification (speakers and mains electricity), but his guitar can be played acoustically (no amplification needed). Some venues don't allow amplification and therefore your song choices will need to be played on the guitar only. This is not a problem as Kaj can advise you on which songs will work best, but it's worth checking with whoever is conducting your service or the venue owner to see whether or not amplification is allowed.


"Unbelievable! Kaj made our ceremony the best of the best! Thanks for learning our favorite song and delivering it beautifully... "
Meg & Simon Fox, married at the Orangery at Port Elliot, July 2017

Drinks Reception

You’ve just got married and your guests are in a celebratory mood! Why not add some live music with an afternoon set from Kaj for your Drinks Reception? 

Kaj plays a 1.5 hour live set as soon as your ceremony has finished. He has a battery powered amp so if it's a beautiful day then he can move around between inside and outside depending on where your guests congregate.


" It was an absolutely perfect day made even more special by having such an amazing soundtrack during our drinks reception.  Our only regret for the day was that we didn't have Kaj play during our ceremony as well! "

Sara & Rod White, married at Trevenna Barns, July 2016

Wedding Breakfast

It's time to chat and make merry over dinner and celebratory drinks! Have Kaj play some gentle tunes while you and your guests relax during your wedding breakfast.

Song Choices
Of course weddings are about cover songs, but as a singer/songwriter and performer in his own right, Kaj has his own songs he can bring to the mix. Listen to Kaj's original songs > 


" Kaj thank you so much for playing at our wedding yesterday! You were incredible and gave our wedding the atmosphere I could have only dreamed of! "

Evening Reception & DJ Set 

Let's get the party started! A true entertainer, Kaj will get your guests off their seats and onthe dance floor with his live set of contemporary and classic tunes. And why book a separate DJ when you can have Kaj seamlessly carry on teh party vibe with his DJ set?

First dance song 
Should you wish your chosen first dance song to be played live on your wedding day, Kaj will learn this at no extra charge. 

Hassle free!
There’s no need to have the hassle of booking a separate DJ and all the accompanying equipment, especially if space or time is at a premium. You can either use Kaj’s comprehensive song library or provide your own playlist, whichever suits you best.


"Kaj, we just wanted to say thank you SO much for your amazing performance on Sunday. You made the end of our son's wedding weekend so magical. You rocked house and everyone was in awe of your talent! There were a few sceptics when I said we were not having a full band, but they were well and truly converted!"
Fran Jones on her son's wedding
