We are Mirage and we are a 6 piece funk, soul and disco band based in the Southampton/Hampshire area. We are a lively party band perfect for weddings, Corporate, functions, bars and restaurants etc. We always fill the dance floor with our sophisticated set list full of great classics and performed by a very talent line up of musicians. We can make any event one to remember.
Each member of the band has many years live gigging experience so you can be sure that you will always get a quality performance. In fact, the band members have worked at a professional level and performed at some legendary and well renowned venues. Ali and Claire provide the sublime vocals whilst Steve, Robin Chris and Garry provide the backing.
Mirage is the perfect evening's entertainment for weddings, parties and functions. We also perform regularly at a number of annual music festivals. Our main goal is to get people up on the floor and dancing so be prepared to have a great time!
As well as being a funk, soul and disco band playing classic tracks from the past 40 years we can also offer a night of pure 70s. We capture the spirit of that amazing decade playing classic tracks from legendary artists such Stevie Wonder, Chic, Abba, Earth, Wind & Fire and Rose Royce to name just a few. So ladies, throw down those handbags (well you've got to have something to dance round) and fellas strut your stuff. This is absolutely perfect for corporate and themed events. We also offer a great 90's section which is perfect for those throw back party gigs you cannot beat them!
