HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
We’re more than just a directory of bands and DJ’s. Our artists have been hand picked by us because of their outstanding talent, professionalism, and their ability to engage an audience. Our artists are of the highest standard, regularly working alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Rihanna. We have curated artists for London Jazz Festival and Taste of London, and regularly programme live music & DJ’s for some of London’s finest music venues.
We love what we do! We’re passionate about music, and about providing our clients with incredible musicians and DJ’s for their event. We have years of experience, not only as events planners and music consultants, but as performers too and we bring this broad experience to your wedding day, party or venue. Our expert knowledge means we can advise on artist selection, playlists, sound equipment and logistics.
THE PERSONAL TOUCH
As a small team, we offer a friendly, personal approach, with the time and care taken to ensure you’re happy with every aspect of your music. Every event is different and we know how important it is to get the music right each time, so we’re always there from your initial enquiry through to the event itself.
"The Briggs Street Players were amazing at our wedding. The dance floor was full all night and the music was fantastic! James was so helpful before the wedding and couldn't have done more to help us. Would highly recommend them!"
"Of all the suppliers I was in touch with to plan this wedding, James was definitely my favourite by far, as he just made everything so easy and straightforward We booked our band (Dukebox City) and DJ (Zulu) and they exceeded our already high expectations. We received so many lovely compliments on our reception, most of which were about the band and DJ.. We owe a huge thank you to James and the team at Sound Generation for making our wedding so special - thank you!!!"
"Sound Generation have been amazing!! Great in communicating between us and the artists that we had at our wedding. Very friendly, professional and was always willing to cater to our needs. We had Adam, he is an incredible singer and musician, and DJ Ray who is an amazing DJ, he kept everyone dancing until the end of the night! We would 100% recommend SG for a wedding or any party!"
"A big thanks to James and the Briggs Street Players for the amazing job they did at our wedding. All the guests were impressed at how awesome the band was. James was extremely organised and accommodating leading up to the day, things couldn't have worked out any better."
"We would absolutely recommend James and his team to help you get it right. Our guitarist, Dom, set the tone for the reception outside and also played our Processional music beautifully. The Briggs St Players got it spot on for the evening and we finished on a raucous high that hit quite close to a sophisticated mosh pit. My 80yo parents were dancing as well as the teenage bridesmaids."
"Where do I start - YOU GUYS WERE MY HIGHLIGHT! The amount of positive feedback and how much everyone has been telling me how awesome you guys were has been unbelievable. Lots of people asking for your details which I've passed on. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the guys, you were all unbelievable on the night and definitely the best decision I made for the wedding!!"
"These guys are a must if you want true talent at your event. The ceremony was so touching with Daniel singing a few songs for us - and for the party later, Briggs Street Players just smashed it! From the moment of booking, planning additional equipment, and song requests, all so easy. Wow - what a perfect day with the most amazing musical addition we could have wished for. Thank you!"
"We used Sound Generation for all the music at our recent Wedding (3 bands throughout the day). James helped to advise and recommend the best musicians to suit our vision and we couldn't have been happier. Our guests were blown away by the standard and vibe and are still talking about it! A very professional agency with excellent musicians."
"The High Tones were brilliant! They did a FANTASTIC job - everyone loved them!"
