Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion

The first Blue Commotion gig in February 2012 was a culmination of a ten-year musical partnership between Zoe Schwarz and guitarist Rob Koral. Through their intense musical journey and compatible desire, they developed a perfect collaboration and empathy, which, when analysed, comes from two completely different starting points. Because of this melting pot of musical diversity, there is a depth and uniqueness to the band's music which is hard to pigeon-hole and categorise. Into the mix comes the sheer virtuosity of each of the band members who are allowed the freedom to express their musical authority, and stamp their own personal magic to the song writing of Zoe and Rob. A testament to this chemistry is the sheer volume of music coming out of the band, and 'Exposed' will be Blue Commotion's third album in two years. Zoe's unique, yearning vocal style is blended with Rob's ability to come up with catchy vibrant riffs and musical arran...

What event planners say about our suppliers


The Live Karaoke band was truly great and amazing. We are highly pleased and glad that we hired such a great band. The musicians were just brilliant and they were also quite accommodating with the time. They adjusted very well and will love to recommend them to my friends. This is really awesome and you cannot get over it. I am a great fan of Karaoke and enjoyed it thoroughly with all my friends. The best thing about them is that they are very professional yet polite. You are going to have a great time with them surely.


Absolutely brilliant night


Celebrated my husband's 70th birthday and being a keen Beatles fan, I booked the Blue Beatles. They were absolutely fantastic. The sound quality and voices were outstanding. A very professional band as well as being a great group of people, a pleasure to have. I would recommend them whole heartedly. Maria Jones MaIdenhead, Berkshire.






How to choose a wedding / function band



If you're looking to hire a Function & Wedding Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in Somerset, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Function & Wedding Bands by price and location, and compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice. When choosing a Live music band it's important to consider:

Do you live in Somerset and you are in need of a function band for hire? Well there are a lot of things to consider while looking for party bands for hire in Somerset. The reason behind this is because not all those who say they offer the best services in the same field are genuine. For you to be safe, you just need to be careful while in pursuit of making a decision on who to hire and who not to. This prompt us to the following list of things you need to consider in order to get the best cover or party bands for hire in Somerset.

Consider using online methods while outsourcing for information

This is a good thing to do if you need to get the right information and at the end of it all, succeed in whatever you need to do or whoever you need to hire. This is because online methods carry more weight as a method of information outsourcing as far as such things are concerned. First of all, this method enables one to compare between more than one such service providers hence, getting equipped with all that is needed to make a decision. Secondly, this method is one of the most convenient methods to use in looking for such information within the shortest time possible. This is because using online method does not need one to travel from one premise to the other in the quest for looking for information since what is needed is an internet connection and you are good to go.

Choose the Right genre of music

The world of music is very diverse and for this reason, one need to be very careful while choosing the cover or party bands. Before you make any decision on whom to hire, first ask yourself,”who is the audience and which music do they like?” This way, you will know what you really need thus at the end of the day, you will emerge the winner since you will have made the right decisions.

Understand the Scope of the function for which you want to hire the band

Different bands have different extents of scope and therefore, getting to know the scope of each individual band is an assurance that you will get exactly what you need.

The climax of any occasion is the kind of entertainment and one can really make an occasion great or ruin it by just the type of band they hired. So doing a thorough research on the individual band before deciding will save the day and you will not regret it at the end of the day.
