The Cazettes - About Us

 

Wedding and Party Band

The Cazettes formed in late 2016 and was born out of a need to hear really quality covers at weddings and private events. We are proud music nerds, and we were tired of hearing the same setlist at every wedding we went to,  so we decided to put a band together that would play the music we would want to hear ourselves. 

As full time musicians working on original projects as well as The Cazettes, we are constantly growing our repertoire and looking for new ways to enjoy the songs we play. If you are a looking for the ‘non-wedding band’ wedding band, you’ve come to the right place! 

We promise - no cheesy jokes between songs, no cheesy standards in our set, and no thrown together performances. We do all the hard work, so you don’t have to. Just sit back and enjoy the show.

Music is our passion, and we only play songs that we love - which we hope is clear to see when you watch us live! We want you to celebrate with the best sound possible, so have a look around our website, read some testimonials, watch some videos and drop us a line - we look forward to chatting with you.
