Lady Ivy - Band Leader/Lead Vocalist
Hello! I am Lady Ivy-- owner & lead vocalist for my band and company- Lumen Atra Music & Entertainment. With over 15 years experience working in the wedding and corporate industry with many different couples and event planners, I have created a music company where you are the creator! In my career I have helped bring couples and clients ideas to life-- from party flash mobs, 1920s era themed receptions, wedding party surprise acapella, to movie themed choreographed first dances. There's no idea too wild or unique! Why not? It's your special day where love is the utmost priority-- things unforgettable should happen! We are customizable in every fashion, acoustic, jazz, full dance band and more. Budget should never get in the way of what you want for your special day, so I have built a music show customizable to fit your needs while staying affordable. What do I mean? Our duo/trio group can bring the same show as our larger group with my customized, real instrument tracks. I personally build them, add real backing vocals along with all the post production to bring a group of real musicians no matter what size band is needed.
So please feel free to reach out with your ideas and vision. I look forward to helping you every step of the way of this creative journey!
