Shir has been bringing musical joy to brides, grooms, their families and guests for 20 years all over the UK and Europe.
We make sure that your wedding day is a truly special experience filled with love and “ruach” (Jewish spirit).
From the moment we welcome your guests with atmospheric pre-Chuppah music, through the Procession and ceremony, the “smashing of the glass”, the Reception, to the first set of Simcha dancing, through dinner and more dancing, we accompany you all the way with beautifully played, tasteful and uplifting music.
The Chuppah ceremony is the most important part of your event – you choose your processional songs for us to play, and we accompany the Rabbi/Chazan or provide Chazzanut ourselves.
Our choice of repertoire will be chosen specifically for you from a selection of traditional and modern Jewish music (Klezmer, Israeli, Sephardi, Ladino, Yiddish, Mizrahi).
Once the party starts you won’t want to stop dancing and if your guests don’t know what to do we’ll get on the floor and guide them through some led Israeli dancing. This is especially popular with non-Jewish guests who can feel a bit lost during the Simcha / Israeli dancing.
Working closely with top DJ team Max Marcus Events, Shir offer a “One Stop Shop” for music and all elements of your production and will advise and guide you through the planning process of your special day.

Past couples’ comments
You guys were amazing – thanks so much.
As always, you were so much more than a band – you were the lynchpins of the party.
I can’t wait to see you at the next Shir Simcha!
The amazing Shir are so much more than simply a Jewish music band – they bring an amazing joyful atmosphere to every party and get everyone dancing. Thank you.
The joy you guys bring to the community and beyond is something to be treasured”.
Jacob Rich Bar Mitzvah – New North London Synagogue – June 2019
One of the very best decisions we made over a weekend of so much love and celebration was to have Shir with us.
You guys were exceptional and there is no other word I can use to describe your input.
From the way you felt and led the guests to the point so many were dancing at the Shabbat dinner when we were not sure if any would, to the way your beautiful sounds filled the air by the Chuppah and then following that with the dancing was simply awesome.”
Sadie and Ori wedding, Cap Ferrat, France, September 2017
Thank you SO MUCH for making our Simcha so special. The music in the ceremony, in particular with Maurice’s beautiful singing, was so moving – many of our guests commented.
Also the party, as I’m sure you will agree, was wild and all thanks to you. Moreover, thank you so much for saving the day when it started raining, and playing amazing music whilst people were enjoying their cocktails. This was beyond the call of duty and made a huge difference to our day so again, huge thanks for this!
We look forward to sharing many more special occasions and Simchas with you all and wish you all the very best.”
