Acoustic Wedding Band Hire Cheshire - LD Duo

About LD Duo
Comprising singer Laura-Jayne Hunter and guitarist/singer Dave Carter, LD Duo is an acoustic duo formed in 2010 that has performed at hundreds of weddings as well as public gigs and parties throughout the North West UK.

They perform covers of popular songs ranging from swing, bossa, country and folk to indie, soul, motown, rock and contemporary hits. They will adapt their repertoire on the fly to provide what is most suitable at the time, from subtle background music to audience participation sing alongs and dancing. As well as having a fantastic voice Laura-Jayne Hunter effortlessly interacts with and charms any audience.

Party & Wedding DJ Service and PA Add On
If you want to dance to louder music later LeLounge can provide all the recorded music you'll need, a DJ service, disco, lighting and your own microphone for speeches and announcements. They'll build your ideal playlists in advance and bring thousands of hits to satisfy your guests’ requests on the day.

Wedding First Dance or Special Requests
If you have a song you would like them to perform that isn't in their current repertoire this can usually be accommodated. This could be your first dance, or a special song for the occasion. Just let them know when you book or within 4 weeks of the event.

Public Liability and Emergency Cover
Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million and electrical equipment is PAT tested each year. For peace of mind they also have deputy musicians (both guitar and vocal) to cover for emergencies.

Planning, Clothing, Playing
The duo will always dress smartly when performing. Performance times can be adjusted to fit in with auctions, buffets, raffle results or speeches and arrival and set up times can usually be arranged to minimise disruption to guests. Set up time is normally twenty minutes, and they require a minimum area of around 2m x 1.5m.

Classical Guitar, Dance Party Duo and Wedding Singer Options
Dave and Laura-Jayne can offer three additional live music options to add further variety and sophistication to your event. Classical Guitar pieces can be performed by Dave during the welcome drinks or the ceremony itself. Laura Jayne Hunter can also sing solo or using backing tracks during any phase of your event, performing anything from easy listening to popular dance hits. AS the Party Duo they can also perform party dance classics witht he same impact and sound as a full funtion band, with live vocals and guitar performed over self produced backing tracks for bass, drums and keyboards. This means you can start softly with the acoustic duo and switch to the sound of a full band when your guests are in the mood for dancing!

  • 2 x 60 minutes
  • 3 x 40 minutes

What can I say about Laura Jayne Hunter apart from how fantastic she was. Laura made our event so special with her amazingly talented vocals. If you haven't heard her voice all I can say is you MUSTSally Barnett

Dave and Laura, thank you so much for a fantastic night on Saturday. Everyone loved it, as I knew they would. Look forward to finding another event to book with you!Carol Butler

We have been so lucky to have Laura-Jayne every month as one of our featured artists. She has developed quite a following. Laura has a fabulous voice, is passionate about her music and has a personality that gets the audience eating out of her handJohn Leutton

Just got back from honeymoon and wanted to say a big thank you to all. Everyone at the wedding has commented on how fantastic you were. Will highly recommend you, our wedding wouldn't have been the same without you especially the duo during food. Excellent!!!!!Laura Feltwell

Hi guys, just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic music you played at our wedding reception on Saturday. We had a brilliant night and loved the first dance song - The One. You did a great job.Alex


What about music between the band's sets?
There are several options. By default the duo will provide you with recorded background music through their PA or you can plug your own mp3 player or laptop in to their PA.

Will they play our favourite songs from their repertoire?
Of course please let them know. If you want them to perform a song during a particular phase of the evening that's fine too! Furthermore, if you have a favourite song that isn't in their repertoire, and you have booked at least a month in advance, they should be able to learn it for you!

What Time will they Arrive?
Unlee otherwise arranged, Dave and Laura-Jayne will arrive about 30 minutes before performance time. Set up takes about twenty minutes. If you would like to time their set up to avoid any overlap with the arrival of guests an early set up can be arranged to achieve this.

It's a Black Tie Function. Will the Duo Dress Accordingly?
Yes. No matter where the duo play they are always smartly clothed but for a black tie event the duo will certainly wear formal evening attire if requested.

Can a Guest Get Up and sing With the them?
Yes, as long as they know in advance who and which song they want to sing. When the duo reach the point in the evening where they play that song they'll give them a big introduction and invite them up on stage. In everyone's interest the duo will never accept impromptu requests by audience members to get up on stage with them during a performance.

What sort of Venues will the Duo Play At?
They'll consider any venue as long as there is power and adequate protection from the elements. they've played at just about every conceivable type of venue from intimate house parties and cosy bar corners to major hotel suites, festivals and theatres.

What Type of Events Have the Duo Played At?
They've played weddings, wedding cermonies, drinks receptions, birthdays, corporate parties and awards nights, garden parties, charity balls, christmas banquets, theatres, ticketed New Year's Eve parties, retirement parties, nightclubs, festivals, restaurants, bars and clubs.

How Much Space Do the Band Require?
A minimum of 2m x 1.5m. The setup is two speakers on stands, perhaps with a couple of small floor lights (if appropriate), a guitar and amplifier, a stool, and two microphones on stands.

What are the minimum power Requirements?
The duo require at least 1 x 13 amp sockets within 10m of the performance area.

The Venue has a Sound Limiter is this a Problem?
Not at all - the duo can perform at any volume
