Graeme Heerden (Keys/Vocals) and Edward Black (Guitar/Vocals) have been performing their tight, energy-filled sets together as Heerden & Black for over 6 years. Hailing from Cape Town and Chester respectively, the pair met studying Music at Paul McCartney’s prestigious Institute for Performing Arts in Liverpool and quickly formed a bond through playing for now signed artists Ady Suleiman (Sony) and Taya (Atlantic).

By their second year of studies, Heerden & Black had secured a residency at the Living Room Bar and Restaurant, and before long the duo - through Genre Music - were holding down weekly spots at Smugglers Cove in Liverpool, The Botanist and Oast House in Manchester and The Botanist in Chester. Now based in London, Heerden & Black regularly perform all over the City, including a residency at the popular Trading House Bar and Restaurant in Central London.

Over the last four years the duo have also been supplying entertainment for Weddings and Parties across the UK and Europe, coupling their energetic live sets with up-tempo, crowd-pumping DJ sets in a combination which has made every event memorable.

"When my wife and eye stumbled across Heerden & Black playing at a local restaurant we instantly fell in love with there versatile repertoire of songs and unique style on old and new tunes. When we nervously asked them if they would be available to play at our wedding and they're enthusiastic and eager reply was very well received.
The guys were happy to take on requests of songs and this made our day even more special.
When you are hearing multiply guests saying ""I love this song!"" and ""where did you find these guys there something special"" it fills you with confidence that you made the right choice.
Wedding or Party or just want to enjoy listening to these two extremely talented men do what they do like no others can get on the blower and book them now!
Thanks again guys for making our special day that little bit more special."
