 The Gramophone Social "Party like it's 1929"

The Gramophone Social is a cool new idea based around an old technology. Playing music on 78rpm records from the 1920's to the 1950's with two beautiful hand cranked gramophones from the same era. The genres include the likes of ragtime, jazz, swing, soul, classical, bluegrass, early rock n roll and much more!

It's a magical sound and it really will transport your guests back to that time. As well as the unique sound of The Gramophone Social there is the added bonus of the visual impact that two gramophones from circa 1920 will add for your guests. This is an experience that will stay with your guests long after the occasion.

All original, all authentic and absolutely no digital files used.

We had the pleasure of having Trevor from The Gramophone Social perform at our drinks reception at our wedding this past August. He was fantastic! I am a record collector myself and love old vintage things so to have something like this at our wedding was so special for me. Trevor's kindness and our shared enthusiasm for records made our interactions leading up to the wedding an absolute delight. He even allowed me to bring some of my own 78's to play on the day. He has a great fun presence on the day, you can tell he loves what he does. He is great with the guests that want to know more about the gramophones or old records, I saw him explaining things to some interested guests. Having the double gramophone setup with other vintage items on display is also a great photo opportunity and a unique talking point for people. His music selection was full of all the old great songs for the past. We had a lot of people coming up to us saying how great the music was. He is very generous with his time as our drinks reception ended up being a bit longer than we originally said but he was happy to stick around and play the entire thing. We are so happy we booked him.

Trevor was an absolute dream to work with. Everything was so easy, from communication, to set up. There?s no stress. He set up on the day and entertained our guests with amazing tunes and even better vibes!

We would highly recommend him to bring a little ole school pizazz to your day, whether it be a wedding or otherwise!

Thanks Trevor ??

We were so delighted we found Trevor and his wonderful Gramophones. Between Trevor himself happily chatting to our interested guests, and the incredible music, it really added a unique touch to our drinks reception. So many of our guests remarked at what a great idea it was, and how much they enjoyed experiencing the live music.
Trevor was so helpful, friendly and organised from our very first contact, he was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for something a little bit different!
We will hopefully get to enjoy his music again soon at another event!

We wanted something unique and different for our reception. And how often do you see gramophones at a wedding?! We are so glad we went with this option. The music set the tone for the day and it was a real conversation starter. Trevor has a great collection of records and it was just an amazing set! Trevor also did the rest of the music for our big day including the Panoramics and the DJ set. The man is a machine - he just kept going!
Thanks for your help and advice on the day! A delight to work with!

We were delighted to have Trevor play at our drinks reception in December 2021. It was a really great sound and the choice of music was exactly what we were looking for. It suited the venue really well!! Many of our guests mentioned to us how cool the sound was and really enjoyed it. Trevor is very easy to deal with and is very professional and courteous. We would highly recommend this service for your wedding. You won't be sorry!!

We had the pleasure of Gramaphone Social play for our jazz themed lunch on the second day of our wedding celebrations. Trevor and his gramaphones were a real feature of the afternoon and set a wonderful mood for our afternoon. We got so many compliments on Gramaphone Social and it?s uniqueness. Trevor was extremely helpful in the build-up to the wedding and highly responsive. We would highly recommend Gramaphone Social for a wedding or any reception event you are planning.

Trevor provided the perfect after dinner entertainment for our 1920s themed wedding. The uniqueness of Gramaphone Social had all of our guests talking and everyone loved the range of music he played. From the minute we first contacted him, Trevor was a pleasure to deal with. We would recommend him to anyone looking for something different for their wedding or their event.
