Mirage Big Band for weddings is the San Diego band that does it all! Live wedding ceremony music; both traditional and modern can easily be provided. Afterwards, for your cocktail reception, our musicians play light jazz and energetic music ...kicking your party off with an upbeat, festive feel, making all of your guests welcome. There's soft, romantic ballads for dinner ...making sure the volume is always low so conversation is never strained or drowned out. The Mirage Big Band then picks up the tempo with variety dance music for swing dancing, rock and roll and interactive fun...getting everyone out on the dance floor.

As the premiere group among San Diego bands, the Mirage Big Band will act as your master of ceremonies to help keep receptions moving and focused. They can eloquently announce and introduce your bridal party and family members, as well as help coordinate toasts, acknowledgments and special dedications. They have the experience and know the traditional music dances for a Jewish wedding. Besides many Jewish weddings and other mitzvahs, they can perform Jewish music as well as variety dance music for your bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah.

All ages have a ball dancing to everything from a waltz, foxtrot and tango to the jitterbug, jump and swing dancing to the big bands sound. There is the smooth romance of ballroom and swing bands dancing one minute, and the wild abandon of rock and disco the next. Do the cha cha or rumba to sexy Latin music. Take a trip to Brazil and do the samba or bossa nova. See if you can remember to do the frug, mashed potatoes or the twist to some rock and roll oldies. Brush up on your best Saturday Night Fever and Flash dance disco moves. Slip across the dance floor doing the Electric Slide or jump in the conga line. There is always CD dance music provided during the short band breaks so there is never a lull in the party.

Big Band Swing is hot again! Give any social occasion elegance and class with the looks and sounds of the big bands. From swing bands and dance standards that everyone knows and loves, to new stylish renditions of contemporary rock and pop songs. Since 1993 Mirage Big Band Orchestra brings it all together better than other wedding bands in Southern California. Their list of credits and personal references is extensive. The band has a wide variety of attire options: elegant white dinner jackets, sophisticated black tie tuxedo, snazzy sports coat and tie and other tastefully coordinated outfits to blend in with the theme of your party. Special requests are welcome. The Mirage Big Band Orchestra will always make sure your guests are having a great time with great music.
