24 Fighting Camels


24 Fighting Camels are a five piece live wedding, party and events covers band that play all the songs you love to sing along to, or dance the night away. We play good music spanning the musical era from the sixties through to today. All the number ones from those eras in-fact, along with a sprinkling of modern songs as well. We love to sing as well as play. We are not noisy youths, but a more "mature" (aged 40's and 50s) group of boys and one girl of a certain age. Take a look at our set lists here for an idea of what we play or take a listen on Our Music page in the menu - Better still come see us play live ! Click around the menu at the top of page for further information from the band. We are based in the Thames Valley and we regularly play in Oxford, Marlow, Henley on Thames, Uxbridge, Reading and other locations in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Surrey and Middlesex.

What do you love most about your job?

We all love our music. It's a fundamental part of what we do. We are five strong; Chris on Drums, Andy on Bass, Jim on Keyboards, Helen on Vocals and Michael on guitar and lead singer. We all do a spot of vocals, whether lead or backing.
All the music we play, we love. Here are a few of the songs we have available in our repertoire. Summer Of 69 - Bryan Adams, Dance The Night Away - The Mavericks, Brown Sugar - Rolling Stones, Lay Down Sally - Eric Clapton, Im a Believer - The Monkees. Plus all the old rock and roll songs you want at the party.

We constantly rehearse new songs, so we don't just play the same songs over and over. Every gig is a bit different.
Another novel idea we promote is:
The customer doesn't pay through the nose for entertainment'
We are not in it for the money. (But you do need to pay us saying that :-) We watch the going rates and try to be very competitive so we can stay out playing for you. Gives us a ring or send us an email to be pleasantly surprised.

As a working pro band, We are one hundred percent self sufficient and ready for your event. We bring all the equipment needed, including a bit of a light show where appropriate and our own sound engineer. We don't mind if we are entertaining at a party, a dinner/dance, a wedding, anything basically. All we ask in return is a bit of planning in advance with us regarding space, power, access to venue etc. We are happy to provide background music whilst food is served (As long as you give us a plate as well please :-)

Why should our clients choose you?

Customer Feedback says it all for us: “Thank you ever so much for playing so brilliantly at our wedding on Sunday. We received loads of compliments and great mix of music. Thank you in particular for learning the two songs you did for us, they were amazing!
Will definitely be recommending you. - Elizabeth and Neil”

What inspired you to start your own business?

We all love our music. We rehearse and play new songs all the time, so here are just a few little snippets of different musical tastes and styles. We also can learn songs if you have special requests
