Band on the Run
Band on the Run are made up of five permanent members. All of us are multi -talented to bring you the best quality sound available. The rapport between us is plain for all to see and we have a strong belief that if we are having a good time so will you.
Our playlist is ever growing to include the latest hits and is always kept up to date with floor fillers from the day before yesterday right back to the roaring 40’s. We can offer you a diverse selection of music ranging from Classical Funk, Ballroom or Rat Pack as well as Pop, Soul and Disco.
Four of the band are strong vocalist and with the highest possible quality of harmonies we have an excellent blend of voices to sing the eclectic range of songs that we have to offer. Our multi stack keyboards provide an amazing depth of sound (strings, brass,woodwind, synth and many more) that is normally associated with a small orchestra, so we create an excellent all round sound.
Gemma on lead vocals and harmonies, Jules on lead vocals and harmonies, Mike is our brilliant bass player, Steve is the wizard on keyboards and vocals and Ian is the man with a van who does a bit of every thing including vocals and drums!
All of us have been working all over the UK for many years so really do have a great understanding of what our clients want to make their Functions really memorable and how to create that brilliant party atmosphere.

"What a great band! They played for my 40th birthday party and nothing was too much to ask. I advised of the music I wanted and they could cater for all ages, I love a lot of Disco and they did not fail to please, along with playing a few up to date songs and golden oldies for my gran.
Would highly recommend for any type of function. Thank you."

We had Band on the Run for our daughters wedding, the music and singing was first class, the range of songs were fantastic, we could not have asked for more. I would give 11/10

A huge, huge thank you Ian to you and the Band for giving us such a great evening on Saturday. Looks like the dance will be the talk of STARA for some time and it’s primarily down to the Band. So many people up dancing which left many of them with aching knees and muscles for days after. The age range at the dance was from 60 to 85 with the majority in their seventies and eighties so it’s wonderful that they are still enjoying themselves and not frightened to get up and ‘strut their stuff’ even with all the hip and knee replacements(and I’m not joking). I’ve received so many thanks from people all saying what a wonderful night they had and asking us when the next one is going to be. It’s the first time the Club has had what I would call a proper dance so hopefully this will be the first of many. Please pass our thanks onto the rest of the Band.

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks to Band on the Run for making our ladies evening so enjoyable. We loved you last year at The Three Rivers and you were fabulous again last night, you really know how to get a party swinging ha ha. Thank you all once again, and I hope we get to party the night away with you again in the future.
