What do you love most about your job?

We enjoy performing and every event we attend at is different.

The best feeling is seeing people join in, sing, dance and have fun. We help to create treasured memories for our clients and their guests. We are very fortunate to regularly play in some of the most stunning places in the UK from premium wedding events to amazing corporate parties.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We enjoy production, performing and creating music. This has helped us to become an award-winning band!

From a live performance perspective:
We wanted to offer a better sound, better vocals, a more contemporary feel and we felt bands were playing the same tired old songs such as 'Play That Funky Music' and 'Mustang Sally'. As most music is produced electronically in the charts, we hear a lot of bands at premium functions that sound dated and can't capture the right feel and energy of modern music as they are constrained by a rock based sound.

From a DJ perspective:
We've been very disappointed with the standard of DJs at recent events. We've encountered those using CDs only so can't do requests, those who talk over every song, and those that turn up with gear that sounds like a song coming out of two potatoes at each end of the stage! So now we do it ourselves in-between our sets. One band, one contact and everything covered from ceremony, wedding breakfast, reception or corporate party. We've got you covered.

Why should our clients choose you?

Clients should choose us because we sound good, are trusted and our reviews are great! We DJ too saving you another £500 for your event.

Without sounding over confident, you'll find Jake's vocals and energy unrivalled having previously been signed to EMI and having toured the world with the best vocal coaches and musicians, you'll have a talented team in place for your event, making sure everything is perfect.

You'll find our sound has variety, is contemporary and offers superb production and sound for your occasion. We provide a set that will put a smile on people's faces, we can offer a beautiful acoustic sound every wedding needs as guests mingle and enjoy their day early afternoon or evening. We will 100% also get the party started with a high energy set with full PA and full backing. This makes us versatile to your requirements and we'll create that energy a dance-floor needs. We want to freshen it all up, sound better, excite a crowd on a dance-floor and create the best memories. Only live music can do that and people are really connecting with what we are doing.

Jake has a superb voice and supported by Ian on piano/keyboards/guitar playing live in addition to backing tracks - we can adapt to the needs of our client and can be trusted to set-up discreetly, turn up and be on time!

We want to make the experience fun for clients to help plan their occasion, ensuring it works for all guests and goes with a bang. You'll find us wanting to get to know you, your song requirements and creating an occasion to remember!

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

We do have a protective glass screen for ceremonies if required, and can also studio record your bridal entrance as a last resort if we're unable to be there when restrictions are relaxed in Easter.
