It's not just a band. It's an experience.

Professional. International. Entertaining.

Your wedding band in Italy

Big thanks to The Waistcoats for a brilliant night! Ye were fantastic. Pity ye couldn’t have played again for us tonight. Hope to see ye again in Italy. Good luck

Claire Schipper


L is for the love, detail to attention and passion we put into our work. O is for our off the charts customer satisfaction here in Italy. V is for the vast amount of songs we can play. E is for an experience, that is unique in an entertainment band from Italy.

A truly all-international band

Nobody wants to be lost in translation with the band, especially on such an important event such as a wedding. Our band members have not only lived in New York, Munich, Barcelona, Rome, Dublin and travelled all around the globe. More important, they have experienced different cultures first hand. Which means, not only do we speak many languages, but we also understand needs and expectations, specific to each culture.

An impressive curriculum

There aren’t many bands in our sector that can say that some of their band members have played at the most important Italian music festival on TV, Sanremo, or that they’ve played at the wedding of international stars such as Brian McFadden from westlife. Or who have set up the only and first international Open Mic for artists in Rome. Or that their singer was a leading voice over actor for a German spinoff TV channel (Alice TV). Frankly, the only band we can think of that brings together all this talent in Italy is us.

Can I have a quote?

Absolutely! Let us know the date and the location of your big day, and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours! You can use our contact form, or send an email directly to info@thewaistcoats.com

How many people are in your band?

We are four musicians, and we all sing and play guitar, bass, piano/keyboard, drums and the mandolin. If you have any special requests (e.g. an extra horn section) or you would like to add a DJ service to our performance, we will be glad to offer a solution for you.

Can you also play for a church ceremony?

Yes, absolutely. Want a classic entrance to an organ/piano sound? No problem. Our pianist is a musician with a classical background and a degree at the conservatory of Avellino, Italy. You prefer an acoustic duo, with two acoustic guitars playing in the background? Consider it done. But even if you would like something different, say, a female voice accompanied by a harp player, we can offer you various solutions, thanks to our vast network in this business.
