OutBeat carry with them all of their own equipment from a professional 3000 - 4000 Watts PA System, amplifiers and lighting rig, so there's nothing you need to worry about or take care of. Instead you can just focus on the most important thing, having a good time. We also are amongst a small few that can offer to play any song especially for your event, be it a first dance for a wedding or a special song for a birthday at no extra cost.
OutBeat alongside playing fantastic live music also offer a DJ service as part of our package. We have hundreds of songs spanning across multiple decades packed full of floor filler hits to keep your party going well into the night! We provide hits from the 5...

"I cannot recommend OutBeat enough! They turned up on time as scheduled and played an awesome rendition of 'Stand by Me' (our first dance as a married couple) everyone sang along and it was one of my favorite moments of the day! They played a fantastic variety of songs which got literally all of our wedding guests dancing (ranging from ages 4 to 70+!) We had an amazing time and danced all night :-) Thank you OutBeat, I will be recommending you to all of my friends!"

"OutBeat were fantastic, they helped out at a charity event which raised over £4,000. They were incredibly professional coming along in the afternoon to sound check and then waiting around for their set as the speeches ran over. They played a blinding set and despite the small crowd left got everyone up dancing and singing along. I would definitely book them again for another event and would recommend to anyone who are looking for a lively and soulful covers band."
