Wedding cover band

contemporary live music, plus a manned DJ AND sound system and lighting.

Two-time winners of regional “Best Live Function Band” at National Entertainment
Awards
Over 500 wedding receptions, business events and parties performed

Canada

hotels
250 full song repertoire
90+ bookings per year
100% live – no backing tracks
Talented multi-instrumentalists, don't be surprised if the guitarist jumps on to the drum kit,
the bass player throws his bass over to the drummer who steps up to sing lead vocals... you
get the picture.
Classic Rock, Indie, Pop, Soul and more are all a part of the show, and the guys are more
than happy to put together a set list that suit your musical tastes. They’ll even learn your first
dance!

They perform up to 2 hours of classic and contemporary live band music which can be split
into 2 x 1 hour sets, 3 x 40 minutes, or just about any other permutation you can think of.
All the music played will be upbeat, instantly recognisable and dance floor friendly. The
guys are totally happy to receive input you’d like to give regarding song requests (including
your first dance).
Why not ask your guests to suggest a song for the band to play when you send out your
RSVPs? What a good idea!

One of the advantages of hiring them is that they are able to set up in spaces considered too small
for larger events bands. Anything from 15ft x 8ft upwards will suit us, and they don’t need a
stage (though if your venue provides one they happily set up on it).

They value the input of anyone they play to, so absolutely! Given that their repertoire runs to over
250 songs, it’s probably best to think about around ten songs you’d like to hear, plus any DJ
songs (and not forgetting songs you’d prefer not to hear) to give us a flavour of your tastes,
and they'll do our best to include them on the night.

Though they are based in the West Midlands, they are happy to perform throughout England and
Wales and also internationally via special request.


They regularly learn special requests at no extra charge. This can be a popular song or
a song specific to your evening. As professional entertainers we pride ourselves on being able
to learn a wide variety of songs, including requests you may not expect a live band to
perform! Once you have hired them, just ask!

The music samples you can hear are a true reflection of their sound. They are 100% live - don’t
use cheesy backing tracks or autotuning. With more than one vocalist in the band they are able
to create a very full sound. They also utilise modern guitar pedal technology to achieve an
amazingly varied texture of music.


They can provide a  DJ service as standard. All the DJ music is
beat matched and cross-faded, just like a professional DJ, and uses their sound and lighting
system for full effect. With around 20,000 songs to choose from, almost any request can be
played.

If you’d like them to learn some songs, make sure to give them at least six weeks
notice.


You’re welcome to use the sound system and microphone for speeches and announcements
throughout the night. For an additional charge they will arrive early, set up their sound system
and provide a microphone especially for your speeches. For wedding receptions, they can even
provide background music for your meal.


Their top-of-the-range equipment is suitable for events of up to 1000 guests and is perfect for anything from small venues and marquees through to conference rooms and town halls. They provide all
backline (instruments, amplifiers, drum kit), microphones and monitors for the band, and a
sound system featuring top and sub speakers for maximum clarity. All the equipment is
compact so that your guests will have plenty or room to dance.
 

Their lighting system is designed to light not just the performance area but the whole room,
and their club-style effects lighting also encourages guests onto the dance floor.

Their full live show extends to 2 hours in segments spread throughout the night, though they are
happy to be as flexible as possible. They are happy to play for longer for an additional fee.

Their standard fee includes an earliest arrival time of 5pm and a midnight. In between those
times, we’re all yours.

Though set up and soundcheck can take around 90 minutes, they can provide DJ music
approximately 10 minutes after access to the performance room.
They have performed over 500 bookings in seven years. They
never cancel. If one of the guys is ill, they will be able to rotate in another professional
musician who has performed with the band previously to ensure that the booking goes ahead
at the same standard of entertainment.

Testimonials

Catherine Anderson - "After a few problems with last years' entertainment, we needed to find a band that would compliment the atmosphere we wanted to create for our awards ceremony for this year. this band were recommended to us and I can honestly say that they were perfect. They were very aware of the need to work within the framework of the awards and were onstage on time and provided a superb nights' entertainment for all. Thank you very much.

Lisa and Martin - "We booked you on recommendation from friends, and I'm glad to say you didn't disappoint. Up until I spoke to you, I was having a nightmare booking a band for my wedding. But you were brilliant! Very professional and courteous. The band were great and everyone was talking about how much they enjoyed the songs you played. Thanks a lot guys.

Andrea and Stuart - "Our friends recommended you for our wedding. I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I was worried that with so many guests we wouldn't be able to please everyone with the choice of music but you just got up there and everyone danced from start to finish. I hope you didn't mind my mom and dad getting up on stage and singing with you - they just enjoyed it so much.

Nick and Leyla - "We had a cracking day... thanks to you guys, everyone was up and dancing.

Amanda and Geoff - "Just a quick note to say how much everyone enjoyed the band. Thanks for making our wedding day so special!
