Just want to thank you and your team for providing the most fantastic entertainment on Saturday. Your band and DJ were absolutely excellent, so professional and we would’ve partied until sunrise if we could! Thank you! – Amy
These guys are DJ’s and musicians on steroids. They play a whole load of instruments, from funky acoustic setups to electrifying fusion acts along with their DJ sets . Werner Denner (owner of man with music) says: “When a couple book us, I want to blow them away…give everything I have to give. I want to make every minute, from when the first guests arrive, till the last song of the evening, exciting and fun. When you bring that kind of energy to the party, people light up, take note and truly enjoy themselves.”
The following is a possible scenario of what to expect when you hire the duo option from Man with Music. Note that they tailor make the experience according to taste. The boys start with a gentle piano and percussion set at the ceremony. A violin or cello player is available on request. Expect well known songs played in a beautiful instrumental way. Then they move to modern lounge vibes with saxophones and flutes during pre drinks. This will get everyone swaying. Think cocktails over a cafe del mar/ buddha bar set. Through dinner they perform the coolest guitar music. It’s a mix of show numbers and acoustic Gypsy like songs – very festive with that “wow” factor. Guests will clap along and most probably start dancing. Click here to see more.

We had the privilege of having Afrotopia play at our wedding in Franskraal, just outside Gansbaai on the 30th of November 2019. They are extremely talented musicians. On top of that, they were very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. We saw them at a family member’s wedding and we liked their funky, jazzy sound. Devon was always responsive and available to answer questions and nail down the finer details in the weeks leading up to the wedding. A big thanks to him! The band played the music for the reception Their performance was excellent. The band learned a song by request from us for our first dance, and it was beautifully rendered. They also played a great setlist of songs, pre-selected by us, both old school and pop. We wholeheartedly recommend them for whatever function or occasion you may have! – Ermin and Daniell Dreyer

We are lucky to have an endless amount of incredibly talented musicians in and around Cape Town, from every genre and discipline. We recommend to book an experienced wedding band with musicians that know the do’s and don’ts with decorum and dress code when it comes to weddings. If possible, go see them perform ahead of time to make sure they are able to handle some variety.
You may prefer to have a live jazz band playing in the background during pre-drinks and dinner followed by a DJ. Or let a lively band take over after dinner when you open the dance floor and take you through to the early hours of the morning.
A professional wedding band can make your wedding day unforgettable. “That was the best wedding I have ever had the pleasure of attending” is what you want to hear from every guest.
