Do you like to dance? Like no one's watching? Like it's 1978 again? We do, and we like to play the music that takes you back. We may not be strictly disco, but our feet are definitely tapping away in the 70s even when we're playing songs from the 80's, 90's and beyond. Formed in Cambridge in 2016 by experienced and professional local musicians, Hustle are available now for weddings, parties and corporate events. We have between us many years of experience putting on shows, and we are confident we can provide the right entertainment for you. We can provide lighting and sound systems to cover venues up to 1000 people with full public liability insurance. We like glitter, sequins, paisley, neon, and big bands; proper bands like you used to see!

Wow, I saw Hustle performing in a bar in Cambridge. They are amazing. I wish I was having a party, I'd book them straight away. Loads of energy too and keep the crowd entertained.

I saw Hustle at the Hidden Rooms in Cambridge a few weeks back. They are amazing!! So full of energy and great songs. I'd highly recommend them.
