Our musicians have many years experience playing for Weddings and Parties. From a small intimate gathering for 30 people, to big events at the Savoy, Claridges and The Grosvenor House Hotel, plus many events in Europe.
For reception/dinner music why not consider a Jazz Duo/Trio with or without vocals. The trio can also augment into a full Function Band later in the evening. Other line-ups can include - two Guitarists, Sax and Piano or our Guitar/ Vocal duo.
If you are having a garden party or reception drinks, how about our Dixieland Jazz Band. They can be booked from a trio to a quintet. One of the great strengths of the band is their ability to stroll around tables etc. They are self contained with no amplification.
All our bands can cover any breaks with recorded music to keep the party in full swing, or if you wish we can supply you with the very best DJs.
If you prefer a DJ for dancing why not consider a Swing band for dinner music and the 1st set, then a DJ for later in the evening.
Professional Party Band prices start at £1000.00
Like all things in life you get what you pay for. A good band will have trained for years to get to a position where they can perform the variety of styles needed to play a corporate function or Wedding Party. They will have rehearsed, maintained and bought their instruments, PA and lights. They also need to cover their own transport costs, Public Liability insurance, their Website etc just like the caterers and photographer.
You are not just paying them for the time they play at your party. If your event is within 50 miles of where the band is based, from the point of loading their gear in the car to returning home, their average day will be around 9 hours. It’s not unusual for a band to travel a 150 miles each way returning home at 3 am. All our musicians are professionals and rely on their reputation for future work, so you can rely on the quality of the service they provide.
Many of our musicians regularly perform on TV, West End Shows and on tours with named artists.
If your budget doesn’t stretch, then a band local to your area is the best bet. These bands start at around £750.00, but choose carefully, the band at your local pub may sound great on a Saturday night, but will they know how to keep your guests dancing all evening, creating some wonderful memories for you and your friends? Remember, you only get one chance to get it right. We have done the hard work in vetting all our musicians and will always be able to supply you great entertainment at a price you can afford.
All our bands are happy to play requests, if it is possible within the instrumentation of the band or the range of the vocalists etc. If you would like them to play a special song please give them as much notice as possible. Remember you are booking a professional band with many years experience, they know what to play to fill a dance floor, so it is best to let them do what they do best. They will have gigs/ sessions leading up to your event, so it is not always possible for them to learn a song the day before.
