Wedding/Hampton Court House
Leanne and the team were really helpful in the run up to the day, ensuring that we had everything we wanted on the set list and helping to make recommendations, too.
When they arrived at the venue they were friendly and didn't disturb us at all whilst they were setting up. The band were amazing when they played, doing our request songs when we were around and got a chance to boogey between talking to guests. We got so many compliments on the music and all our guests absolutely loved them.

Wedding/Smeetham Hall Barn
Pharaoh and the Beats recently played at our wedding at Smeetham Hall Barn and provided a really fantastic night of live entertainment for us and our guests! From the start, Leanne and the team's services were super professional. After quickly responding to our initial enquiry and questions, we were invited to a rehearsal to check them out and see if the band's style was a fit for our event. Getting to meet Leanne, hearing her amazing vocal talent live, and seeing how well the band gelled together really put us at ease and confirmed they were going to be the right choice for our wedding.
Communication and flexibility from the band leading up to and including the big day was excellent too such as promptly sharing PAT/PLI certificates for the venue, tailoring a varied set-list to our taste/audience, letting us choose a couple of our favourite songs for them to learn and perform, dealing with some speech over-runs compressing set-up time on the night, and even letting the Groom get up on stage with Leanne to sing a few verses of the kiwi classic 'Be Mine Tonight' and Journey's 'Don't Stop Believin'' to the Bride!
Everyone had a great night and we were all super impressed with Leanne's stunning vocals and the band's warm up-beat sound. If you're looking for a professional and reliable covers band with a vocalist that can cover a wide range of material and really get the party going, hire these guys!

Pharaoh & The Beats absolutely made our wedding day! They were professional from the very beginning when I booked them via Encore and they maintained contact right up until the day itself to assist me with any questions I had. Leanne has an incredible voice and all the other musicians were brilliant too. We had so many of our guests asking how we came across the band, commenting on how good they were. We couldn’t be happier at how they got everyone on the dance floor and thank them so much for learning and performing our first dance song! We will definitely be booking them again for any future events!
Lucy, April 2019
Right from booking with pharaoh & the beats until the Wedding the communication was great couldn’t have asked for more. They fitted with our venue perfectly and we were so happy with their performance on the wedding evening. They engaged with the guests and had everyone dancing. We could not thank them enough for being part of our day.

Wedding Anniversary/Bristol Observatory
We hired this group for our 25th wedding anniversary from start to finish the communication was outstanding we could of not wished for a better group to support our evening they asked beforehand what sort of music we liked by suppling us with a music list we only crossed of one song and this was a Christmas song as it was August lol 😂 They arrived well in time and from start to finish we never stopped dancing We would highly recommend these and will be using them in the future
Grace, July 2019
Pharaoh and the Beats played for my 21st and they literally made the night! Guests were up and dancing by the second song of the set and we didn't stop dancing all night. They were friendly and professional and sounded incredible! Great song choices as well. I want another party just so I can book them again!

How much space do you require?
We usually ask for a minimum of 5 x 4m, however we've been known to fit in smaller areas! It also depends on the size act you choose as we have an acoustic duo right up to a 9-piece party band.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
We would be happy to learn your favourite tune.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
This can be down to the client and how their event runs. Generally we take one break in between our two sets and this could be for 20-30 minutes dependant on what is happening between our sets.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests are up and dancing and having an amazing time. We are, however, happy for you to voice any major 'No no's' to ensure we find what works for your event.
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually allow around 1-1.5 hours before performance time to set up and sound check. If you need us to be set up slightly earlier so we are not in the way of guests, then we are happy to discuss this with you and work with you as best we can.

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
We always use the same lead singer and strive to make sure the rest of the line-up that you see, is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.
