The band was founded with Lindyhop and Swing Dancers in mind, but we find that our broad repertoire is popular with all ages and tastes.
Ideal for weddings, parties and dance events the Hot Shoes is a professional, experienced and entertaining band that always goes down well!

However, we also cater for a larger audience by playing more up to date chart songs by artists such as George Ezra, Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and many more.

SALUT formed in 2014 as a funk & soul originals band and quickly had success playing to large crowds at the likes of The Isle Of Wight festival. Their unique energy, showmanship and style soon become noticed by event agents who began to book the band for corporate events. It didn’t take long until word spread to the luxury wedding industry where SALUT have since become one of the most booked international luxury-wedding bands.
SALUT’s clients hate the idea of cheesy & predictable and love the idea of fresh, young & super-talented. There is a huge appeal that you get a real recording band at your wedding and not a random collection of singers and musicians. SALUT is predominantly the same band line-up week in, week out, although there is a pool of amazing like-for-like musicians to cover for any eventuality.
Working tirelessly at their craft, the SALUT show is the perfect wedding entertainment for an international crowd of all ages. Full ...

The wedding is in pendennis castle so we would like to have you before the ceremony inside and then people will head to the chemise for drinks and canapés so out there afterwards. We could also possibly use you over in the venue for guest to get to the seats?
we are having a wedding for around 90 guests and we thought before the DJ kicked in it would be fun to have a ceilidh band to liven the room and get people on their feet.
We didn't really want a slow first dance where everyone watches us shuffle round the dance floor so we thought perhaps this would be a fun thing to do with the bridesmaids and ushers.
Please could you let me know the cost of a session, how long this would be and anything else you feel we should know.
If you could email your reply to it would be appreciated.
Hope this email finds you well.
We hold a Christmas package at The Grosvenor Arms hotel in Shaftesbury every year which includes a jazz band performance on Boxing Day evening. I have been looking at options and came across your website. I was wondering if you would be interested in performing for our guests in the bar for a couple of hours during the early evening?
If you have any questions please let me know
Look forward to hearing from you.
- North Yorkshire, North Yorkshire
wedding at Kettlesing Village Hall, North Yorkshire.
Looking for a band for the evening time - approx 7.30 until midnight.
You came recommended from a friend!
Just after rough idea of prices also.
Great fun with loads of positive comments from guests. And genuinely positive comments not just being polite. They loved them! I Would certainly recommend them without hesitation, the guests were falling off the benches with enthusiasm. I still keep getting positive comments and cards from friends!
I couldn't have asked for a more professional, talented and friendly group of people to play at my wedding reception in April.
Music has always been a really important part of both mine and my husband's lives (in very different ways) and so choosing the right band was at the top of our priority list. We had a look at some other groups before booking these guys but just no one compared! We had heard them play at a friend's wedding the year before and knew they were excellent!
We had fantastic feedback from our guests after our big day, who were all in awe of the quality of this group and no one had a bad word to say (and we had guests aged 2-89 there!!)
They beautifully played our first dance and had my husband and me near tears, and then were able to get the whole room up and dancing-such fantastic musicianship!!
These musicians are the best of the best and I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding just that extra bit more special! X
