Marking your 2020 milestones with music

fireworks with milestone moments words

2020 is going to be quite a year, with the Olympics and Paralympics taking centre stage in Tokyo, the US Presidential Elections and the UEFA Euro 2020 matches held here in the UK. 

At Matters Musical, we help people celebrate all kinds of major milestone events in their lives, from family events and anniversaries to weddings and birthdays. Music and live performance bring people together so brilliantly, whether to sit and listen, get up and dance, or even learn a new skill such as dhol drumming or dancing the samba.

Big birthdays

Whether you’re celebrating a milestone 30th, your fabulous 40th or fun-packed 50th, we have the cover bands and DJs too to get everyone up and dancing all night long. or treat yourself to a live funk band to recreate the sound of the 70s, a swing band to get everyone In The Mood, or a jazz band for those who really know how to shake their tail feathers!

British weddings

Imagine a wedding without music? Neither can we! Our artists can provide the soundtrack to your special day, from start to finish. Here are just a few ideas!

  • trumpeters for your arrival at the church, registry office or wedding venue
  • a gospel choir to lead the singing
  • a harpist to play during the signing of the register
  • acoustic duos or trios for your drinks reception
  • an entertaining dance troupe for the middle of your wedding meal
  • a fab party band, swing band or indeed any band for your wedding evening party!

We’ve got the musicians and acts to suit any budget, any theme, any genre. Call us for a bespoke package and quite just for your wedding


Happy anniversary darling! Our live musicians can bring those memories flooding back for all ages. So celebrate all those years together with a party you’ll remember until the next big milestone in ten years’ time!

Children’s parties

Family celebrations / get togethers

Many families are spread across various locations, even countries, so when you do get together all in one place, it’s something special.

You provide the venue, we’ll provide the perfect entertainment to keep everyone smiling, happy and having the best time, from great grandparents to toddlers.
