One of the UK’s premiere function and events bands.
The band formed in spring 2006 but had already been performing together in different band set-ups since 1997 where they all met in college. Coming together for on one off performances for friends and family gained the band a reputation for always putting on a memorable show playing not only popular classic songs but also some lesser-known diamonds performed in their own authentic way. With an emphasis on achieving quality three part harmonies and a ‘less is more’ approach to instrumentation it was clear from the outset that this band stood out from any other typical function band.
Fronted by Matt Nicholls on lead vocals enables the band to accurately recreate the sound of any song leaving some clients confused at how he can sing so many different songs “just like the real thing”. It is this attention to detail and the feel of the music created by the band which keeps clients coming back to hire them as the ‘go to ‘ band for any event.
