About Melissa and Reece

Hi, welcome to our page!

We are an acoustic duo situated in Brighton. Our focus is Jazz and Soul music, and we try to make covers as original to our style as possible. We use the simplicity of only vocals and acoustic guitar to create emotion and add a lot of feeling in our performance which contributes a lot towards the perfect atmosphere for your special occasion.

Our style is primarily acoustic jazz and soul music but we also do other wonderful acoustic tracks and are more than happy to cater to any song requests, old or new!

Our set would enhance any Wedding / Engagement / Birthday  / Tea Party / Christening or similar and will provide relaxed and chilled entertainment for up to 3 hours if required.

We use a compact PA system with mixer to give good quality output with little fuss and can be set it up within 20 minutes. We can set up within a small area if necessary and would not need any other equipment apart from a plug socket!

We have residencies at: The Grand Hotel (Brighton), Browns Bar & Brasserie (Brighton), Cafe Rouge (Brighton), The Better Half (Brighton), Burgers & Cocktails (Brighton) and many more. We also provide entertainment for different function events.

In a wedding we would typically suit any of the following:


We can provide music for your wedding ceremony however you would like to arrange it. We are happy for you to choose songs from our set list or request songs you would like to hear. We can play for seated guests, songs for your processional, signing of the register or however would be suited for you and your ceremony best.

Reception Drinks

After the ceremony, why not be greeted by some soft acoustic music at the reception venue for drinks? We can play up to 3 hours of music so could take you and your guests right up to the wedding breakfast.

Wedding Breakfast

Our music will provide the perfect atmosphere for the wedding breakfast as pleasant background music for you and your guests. This could be 2 x 45 minute sets or 1-2 hour sets, however you would like to arrange it.

For a more accurate quote or if you have any more enquiries or ideas please don't hesitate to contact us. We always love to hear from you!

Best Wishes,

Melissa and Reece x

  • "The sound and song choice was perfect"
    Rowena Mattacks on 26 April 2018

    My daughter Hannah and I saw Melissa & Reece at Browns on Mother's day. After hearing a couple of songs we knew that we wanted them to play at her wedding at Pangdean on 31 March. They were fantastic, they are two very talented artists. The sound and song choice was perfect, we had so many positive comments from our guests. I could have sat for hours listening to them. We would highly recommend them and would certainly book them for another event. I will now follow their facebook page so that i can go and hear them again. Thank you, you helped make the day perfect.
