Your Wedding Ceremony Music

Kevin will play your favorite musical selections before, during and after the ceremony. The Prelude consists of music that is played 20 to 30 minutes before the ceremony begins - while the guests are arriving and taking their seats. The Processional is typically music that is easy to walk to; one piece can be played for the bridal party and another can be played upon the entrance of the bride. The Interlude includes any musical selections that are played during parts of the ceremony where there is no talking - such as prayers or communion. The Recessional is typically a very cheerful and festive piece that is played as the Bride and Groom exit. The Postlude includes pieces that are played as the guests leave.

Cocktail Hour Music

Kevin will play festive and upbeat background music before you and your guests sit down for dinner. This can include the classic swinging standards from the Great American Songbook, popular rock classics, popular songs from recent years or whatever you prefer!

Reception Music

Rehearsal Dinner and Other Events

Kevin also plays for other events, such as: rehearsal dinners, engagement parties and anniversaries. Kevin will play upbeat music as your guests arrive and visit, soft background music during dinner followed by more upbeat music until your guests leave.

Recent Reviews

"We absolutely loved working with Kevin Fox for our wedding! From the moment we contacted Kevin, he was prompt in responding to us, extremely professional, and enthusiastic about our wedding day. We loved listening to the sample music on his website with our families! Even when we requested songs that weren't on his list, he was willing to learn them to play at our wedding. This was a huge plus for us as many of our favorite songs are not of the norm. Kevin was a breeze to work with in terms of set up, and he worked with our DJ to get the sound perfect for our outdoor ceremony. On the day-of, his piano playing sounded incredible. All of our guests loved it and recognized the songs played. We'll never forget it, one of the best parts of our entire wedding! Being a wedding planner myself I will be sure to refer Kevin to all of our couples."

"Kevin Fox is a consummate professional. He and his fellow musicians performed for our daughter's wedding and added tremendously to the ambiance of the event. Their performances were absolutely beautiful. In addition, Kevin met with us the day prior to the wedding to rehearse Kimberly's upcoming solo during the wedding. He was very well prepared with the music we had forwarded for rehearsals. His skill and ability to adapt to her vocals quickly along his endless patience made us feel comfortable and confident that we had chosen the right performer for this once in a lifetime event. If you need a professional who has truly mastered his craft, Kevin Fox would be a very wise choice in our opinion. Thank you."
- Paul & Kimberly
