Services Offered

Norwae's most popular wedding package consists of providing exceptional music during your cocktail hour through the dinner portion of the evening leading up to the opening of the dance floor where a DJ/dance band then takes the stage. Norwae also performs during wedding ceremonies and provides the perfect backround music for your rehearsal dinner! Performances are charismatic, and engaging and is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of guests. Norwae is willing to take requests, as well as learn new songs to perform for your wedding day.

Depending on the size of the venue, number of guests, your budget and your vision for the music portion of the event there are various combinations available, including the following:

  • Duo - amazing for wedding ceremonies, the duo features Norwae on vocals accompanied by a guitar player.
  • Trio - also great for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours and receptions, the trio features Norwae on vocals, a guitar player and a bass player.
  • Quartet - stellar for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours and receptions, the trio features Norwae on vocals, a guitar player, a bass player and a drummer. However, the arrangement can also be voice, guitar, bass and saxophone. This is a fantastic way to add some extra zazz to your event and still maintain a more mellow sound (without the drums). With that being said, don't be frightened by adding drums to the mix as she works with mature and talented drummers who play according to the size of the room and are respectful of the role in your event and in our performance as a unit. Conversation can still easily take place when opting for the full band combinations.
  • Quintet - ideal if your wedding is taking place in a larger venue and if you are looking for a full sound. The quintet consists of Norwae on vocals, a guitar player, a bass player, a drummer and either a horn player (most common is saxophone but trumpet is also an option) or a piano/keyboard player.
  • Sextet - ideal for larger venues and full band performances. A sextet consists of Norwae on vocals, a guitar player, a bass player, a drummer and either 1 horn player plus a keyboard/piano player or 2 horn players (i.e. trumpet and saxophone).

I only requested one special song two weeks before the event and she performed it perfectly! Her set list left all over guests in awe. They all asked about her the very next day, so I lead them to her iTunes songs (yes, she's legit! lol) I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a band who sets a very nice, upscale, and classy atmosphere :)
