Bands & Singers

OK so we are not an agency, but having worked with hundreds of singers and bands over the years - we know a few and would recommend the acts below. We are happy to contact them and get quotes on your behalf. Wherever possible the pictures below are at actual gigs we've done. We would normally supply the sound and lighting for them as well as DJ between their "sets" as most acts will perform 2 x 45 minute sets.
