Description

Price from: £995

We don't believe that size is important - it's what you do that counts! As a four-piece band (female vocals, guitar, bass, drums) we can cater for smaller, more intimate, events where larger function bands might struggle, right up to events for several hundred people. We have played every type of venue from marquees to castles, hotels to medieval halls, and clubs to festivals.

If you have never booked a band before, or if you do it all the time, we are here to make the process as easy as possible and ensure your event is a success. You will have a specific point of contact with the band, available seven days a week and we're happy to liaise with your venue, planner or crew to sort out all the details of our performance, so you don't have to act as the middleman.

We travel with our own PA and lights - all PAT tested - and, we have £10m Public Liability Insurance. We provide pre-recorded background music and our 'iPod DJ'as standard; and we can offer additional services such as a live DJ and 'Live Lounge' acoustic sets. We have a range of special services for brides and grooms.

Our sound is rockpopindiesoulnroll... it's basically back to back tunes that you and your friends will all know and love. Our set covers the last 50 years (at least!) and every song is a classic!

We booked the players for our wedding last weekend. Absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys. They kept the dance floor buzzing all night. Variety of music was fantastic. Excellent choice for a band! Thanks guys.

We booked The Players after seeing them at our friend's wedding last year. Really lovely people, great musicians, great voice! All the guests thoroughly enjoyed the band. Good mix of music for all ages but without all the typical cheesy wedding songs (which was a must for us!) They did a fantastic version of 'just like heaven' by The Cure for our first dance - we loved it! Thanks for helping to make our day so special x

The most amazing wedding band!! If we could do our wedding over they would be the first thing on the list! One year on and we still can't say enough good things. We had so many compliments about our choice of band, they sang a request for our first dance, were so easy to deal with and just made our night!

"Had 'The Players' for our wedding. Absolutely brilliant and professional. Learnt our first dance song, got the crowd dancing and played some great songs.

Loads better than just a DJ and would definitely recommend for any wedding/party/event for that added wow factor and atmosphere. Thank you and we'll done."

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the Players for playing at our wedding at Newburgh Priory. They were absolutely amazing and produced a first class performance. We had so many comments about how great the band were and the dance floor was full all night. They were flexible with times and song choices and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much guys!
