Core 4 piece Wedding Band

The Core 4 Piece Band option consists of drums, bass, guitar and male vocals. This unit is capable of reproducing just about any song you could imagine due to a mixture of musicianship and the use of electronics but WITHOUT backing tracks! Everything you hear is played live for an authentic experience.

The band are based in Leeds and Manchester but are available all over the country. Just get in touch through the contact form below and let us know where you want us!

5 piece Wedding Band

Our amazing female saxophonist/vocalist can be added to this line up for the best 5 piece band around. Expect an added sprinkling of funk and class with a wider repertoire and a fuller sound.

As well as all the material played by the 4 piece, the 5 piece can accurately tackle a wider funk and soul repertoire. Having both male and female vocalists as well as the added brass element makes this a super verstile but still reasonably priced line up.

Party band from Leeds

This is what we will do at your event

Arrival and soundcheck

We can arrive at your event from 5.30pm on the day and will need parking close to the venue with a clear way to bring equipment into the venue. The full set up process usually takes us about 90 minutes. We will discretely load our equipment into the venue being as careful as we can not to disturb guests. We will need to spend at least 30 minutes playing full volume to check levels and get the sound as good as possible towards the end of the set-up process. If an earlier set up time is needed then we can accommodate this but there may be an extra cost.

After setting up

We will set up some background music through our sound system whilst your guests arrive and we go to get changed into our stage clothes. This is usually when we would eat so we request that the caterers know to provide meals and soft drinks/tea/coffee for the band. We also need somewhere to get changed – usually the venue is happy to provide a room for that purpose. If it’s not practical to eat at this point then it’s fine to arrange it for the first break.

First set

At the agreed time we will start the first set and at this point you can just leave everything else to us and enjoy yourselves! We play for about one hour and will then take a break, leaving music playing from our laptop so your guests can carry on dancing if they would like to.

Second set and the end of the night

By this point the party should be really swinging! We will play about another hour of live music, making sure you are all having a really good time. When we finish we will keep carefully selected music playing through our sound system until our contracted end time (12am). Only then will we start to pack down our equipment. The packing down process usually takes about one hour.
