Providing music for weddings is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a musician. It's just so nice be able to contribute to something so special. I'm definitely a big softie at heart, and its a privilege to see two people find true love and take it to the next level. I pride myself on having a strong work ethic, and I believe that putting in the preparation, and taking care of all the small details makes me the right choice for your wedding musician.

Bill is a wonderful artist and dj. It was the perfect touch for our ceremony and reception. The acoustics throughout the ceremony, canapés and dinner set the scene for our special day. He kept the party going and took request from guests. He was professional throughout the whole process and flexible with all our song choices.

We highly recommend Bill Olson who performed at our wedding in early October. His voice is so easy to listen to and he has a wide vocal range and ability to adapt to different song requests. He learnt and performed our first dance song acoustically which was still into you by Paramore, and he perfected it! After dinner when the dance floor took off, Bill dj’d for us, which is a great package deal! Thankyou Bill for being a fantastic musician at our wedding, we will recommend you to all future couples we know. Kindest Regards, The Bonner’s

Bill provided the music for our September wedding this year. Throughout the entire process he was amazing to work with, particularly his communication as he promptly responded to every email I sent. On the day we could not be happier with the live music he played, the atmosphere he created and the tunes we all danced to as he turned into a DJ later in the evening. If you are looking for a musician, look no further! I couldn’t recommend him more highly! Thank you for every thing Bill!

Bill was lovely- true professional. From subtle background music played and sung by him, to getting everyone aged one to eighty-one on the dance floor, my legs still hurt from dancing so much! He really read the room, didn't miss a beat and was a pleasure to work with.

Bill played acoustic guitar for our ceremony and the start of the reception, followed by DJing into the night. Guests had great things to say about Bill and he created a lovely atmosphere.

How to really experience a wedding band/DJ before booking

Hi there. Can we come and listen to a band or DJ at another wedding or event before we decide to book?

Bill Olson Music

I have the advantage of playing gigs in my local area every week, so that potential clients can come and hear me play and also meet me and discuss any questions they might have.

Music ideas for straight after the ceremony

Music suggestions please! Trying to figure out an upbeat song to play after our vows when we walk back down the aisle together. Thank you.

Bill Olson Music

I've found that couples regularly choose something a little more upbeat/fun /happy for the recession/exit song, this seems to work well and sets the mood for further celebrations to come.

Furthermore ,i've found that playing upbeat songs in the background, until the guests have left the ceremony is a nice touch
