We are an energetic four-piece band from Brighton, East Sussex and we provide a fun and interactive show of live music that will keep your guests up on the dance floor all night long - what ever your event type.

With years of experience between us, we've entertained thousands and thousands of people in crowds at weddings, corporate events, parties, pubs, venues, etc up and down the UK! 

Our carefully crafted setlists cater for all audiences - young & old. You can see our complete song list on the repertoire tab.

Our standard performance is 2 x 60 minutes sets, giving you the best modern pop classics like Bruno Mars through to Rock Anthems from Likes of The Darkness and The Kaiser Chiefs.
