Since forming in 2015 OutBeat have performed at a variety of events such as weddings, corporate events, anniversaries, birthday parties and charity fundraisers.
OutBeat guarantees that every client who books the band will be left thrilled. The memories we help you to create will last a lifetime!
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 50's/60's all the way to current chart material, fulfilling all your musical needs. Whatever music you require, we have you covered!
OutBeat are flexible to accommodate your schedule. We can play a DJ set before the bands main performance to get guests up and onto the dance floor or after our main performance to keep guests dancing well into the night! We can also provide background music with over 100 smooth jazz standards for when something more subtle is required such as while guests are dining or conversing.
OurBeat are professional function musicians with years of experience. We comprise of a female lead singer, three backing singers, guitar, keyboard, bass and drums. We can also add a saxophone to our line-up, if this is required for your needs.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you require any further information about us or our music.

"""Highly recommended. Wayne was my original point of contact and the booking process was simple. Wayne visited the site to get the lay of the land prior to the big day so there were no last minute blockers. The band were great, everybody at the party agreed including some very proficient musicians in their own right. Excellent range of music very well played & sung. So would I book OutBeat again? Already have! Enough said."""

"""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!"""
