Description

Price from: £1500

With musicians from Whitstable, Herne Bay, Chatham, Maidstone & Folkestone we get around and with 11 members on stage, Rubber Biscuit is Kent's biggest (and some say best) soul, rhythm 'n' blues, and blues band. The band is renowned for its "big sound", thanks to its three-piece horn section, up to five vocalists, and four piece rhythm section. Rubber Biscuit play for wedding receptions, birthday parties, and corporate events at all the top venues in the county. The band have a huge repertoire, and play a perfect balance of music to dance the night away. Everything from soul, pop, rock 'n' roll, rhythm 'n' blues, funk, disco, ska, plus a few slow romantic songs for good measure!

Rubber Biscuit has earned its reputation as one of the most professional wedding / function / party bands in Kent. It has an excellent working relationship with venues and wedding and event organisers.

Now in their 27th year of entertaining Kent audiences, these local legends are still doing what they have always done best: playing great music and, more importantly, giving audiences a great time, whether it is a corporate event, festival, or that special day.

They do weddings,
Your wedding day is an once-in-a-lifetime event and should be a special and memorable occasion. The evening reception is the longest part of the wedding day and usually the time when most people are attending. This is also the part of the day that you and your guests will remember the most.
They can discuss your music requirements as well as any other ideas with you before the day if necessary. For example have you chosen a song for your first dance? they can discuss your likes and dislikes and adapt the evening.

"Hi Mandy

I think I've just about recovered! The event went smoother than ever expected, really over the moon.

I've already had feedback this morning about how much our guests enjoyed the evening and the entertainment. I will absolutely be reviewing and 5*ing everywhere I can for you!

A huge thank you for your support and professionalism for our event.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas, a happy New Year and I hope to see Rubber Biscuit very soon! :) xx

Kind regards

Charlotte Watts"
