Starting gently with some Frank and Ella style swing, the band can judge the mood with ease and move seamlessly through Latin dance, Lounge, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Reggae, Motown, Disco and Dance to finish up with some of the funkiest tunes on the planet.

The VPs are one of Britain’s finest dance bands. With their immaculate vocals, Miriam Grey, James Deane and their band can make your evening truly unforgettable. The Vodka Martinis can also be augmented by a sax player or a full horn section.

Also for that intimate champagne reception, the band can provide an excellent instrumental trio of vibes, double bass and guitar.

Members of the band have worked with Shirley Bassey, Michael Ball, Nelson Riddle Orchestra, Michael Crawford, Human League, Alison Moyet, West Life, Charlotte Church, Pet Shop Boys, Katherine Jenkins, Vince Hill, National Youth Orchestra, The Rat Pack, and numerous West End Shows.

Previous clients include:  The Royal Family, The Jordanian Royal Family, The King Of Thailand, The Hong Kong Arts Festival, The Hong Kong Club New Years Eve Ball, BBC T.V, The Grosvenor House Debutants Ball, many major film premieres, celebrity parties and charity events as well as weddings, corporate launches and festivals.

“Thank you so, so much for the best night ever. You were amazing! Everyone kept asking how we managed to find you guys. The music absolutely made our wedding.”

Laura and Johnny Etkind – Wedding Reception – Buckinghamshire – August 2011
“Thank you for playing such an amazing set at our wedding at Stoke Place this August. Everyone said what a fantastic band you are and the dancefloor was packed right until the end of the night, with guests who had never previously spoken before dancing together because the music and the atmosphere was so good!

Mim and James were both absolutely fantastic and Johnny and I are especially grateful with what you all did to learn our first dance song, you made it really special for us and it was absolutely perfect. You definitely made the night for everyone and we have been on a high ever since.”

Stanley Tucci (Actor) and Felicity Blunt- Wedding- L’animo, London- September 2012
What a fantastic band you are!!!  You absolutely made the evening at L’anima…such a wonderful mix of ballads and classics and rock!  And something for every age too…which is pretty rare these days.  So this is just to say a very big thank you to you all for making the party go with a real swing.  You were wonderful.
Warmest wishes,Joanna and Oliver Blunt
