Renowned on the Isle of Wight for their high level of musicianship and unique sound, the Cat Skellington band is a wonderful addition to the cocktail hour/ champagne reception of a wedding party. The mixture of swing era jazz and beautifully played acoustic instruments instantly creates a classy and atmospheric backdrop to any event, ensuring that you relax and smile as your party begins! 


The music is reminiscent of 1930s Parisian swing made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Typically the band plays as a trio or quartet with a combination of double bass, rhythm and lead guitars and clarinet/vocalist.

The band has full PA equipment and will arrive, set-up, play and pack away with the minimum of fuss, leaving you to enjoy the party (and perhaps tap your toes at the same time!)

Standard fee: £600 for quartet, 2 hours of music with a short interlude.

The band can offer a trio for smaller events and budgets. Please enquire.

Some lovely feedback from previous events:


"Just a quick note to say how wonderful Cat Skellington were at our wedding last weekend. The atmosphere they created was perfect for the garden party and they were a joy to have there on our special day. Hugo handled the booking and was incredibly easy to deal with, thank you to you all, will definitely be recommending you for future events and hope to see you play again sometime soon, thank you again, Mr & Mrs G-P."


"Thank you for playing on Saturday at P and A's wedding. You helped to create the exact atmosphere we wanted to achieve and it led to a really special evening. It was very kind of you to do it in two stints and it really worked - we are so grateful. There have been many comments about how fantastic you all were - so I wanted to pass that on to you! Many thanks again - and we shall look forward to hearing you again soon I hope." Mrs C
