Band for Hire with Flexible Line-Ups

The band comes in different sizes so we are able to offer unique and flexible entertainment that’s just right for our clients at each and every performance.  We can easily add musicians and singers to our core line-up.  Here are some band options that you may find helpful:


  • Full 8-Piece Swing Band (2 x Vocals, Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar, Saxophone, Trumpet). Very entertaining and very flexible. Great for strict tempo dancing and a fabulous show band for larger events.
  • Quintet (Vocals, Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar or Saxophone). Undoubtedly our most popular line-up which slots into almost any situation with ease. Perfect for weddings, corporate events or ballroom dances.
  • Quartet or Trio including vocals – still good for dancing but with less musicians, it’s less flexible.

Passionate about what we do, we strive to ensure that our live band hire is exceptional. Our musicians are the best in the business and together as a team we believe our entertainment is second to none.
