Ideal for weddings, parties and dance events the Hot Shoes is a professional, experienced and entertaining band that always goes down well!

Wedding - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

Hi I am looking for a string trio (to include violin and cello) for my classical romantic wedding on 16 April 2016 between noon and 4:30 pm with a one hour break between 1pm and 2 pm, all indoors. The venue will be in central London near Hyde Park. I'd be very grateful if you could please respond to the following queries: - would you be available then? - what would the rate be for a trio? - I will have 2 special songs that might not be on your repertoire. Will it be possible for the musicians to play these? Will the rate change accordingly? - number of guests will be 80. - have you already got a slow waltz song in your repertoire for duo or trio? If so, can you please send me the title? - do you bring your own sound equipment? If not, what would you need? - will I be able to advise on the outfits worn by the musicians (knee length skirts as a minimum and with sleeves, classical outfits)? Thank you for your response.

Wedding - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

We plan on getting married on 2nd April 2016 at Hampden House. We are currently looking for a string quartet or duo to play during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast and I was wondering if you would be able to give me a quote. Would you also be kind enough to answer a few questions also: 1. What's your backup plan if there's an instrument malfunction? 2. Do you have liability insurance? 3. What's your sick-day policy? 4. Do you have any packages that might be suited to us? 5. Would you be open to taking song requests from the bride and groom if agreed upon before the wedding day?

Celebration - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

We are looking for a classical guitarist to play background music during our dinner, at Jesus College, Cambridge University. The dinner is part of a wedding celebration, but we are NOT looking for a guitarist for the church ceremony on Tuesday afternoon. JUST for dinner. There will be only 14 people, at the most, in the Alcock room at Jesus College. Guests will start arriving at 7:00, and we ask for the music to be played for perhaps a half hour, with a 10 or 15 minute break, followed by another half hour. I am guessing, because I really don't know who these events proceed. It is essential for us that the entertainer NOT smoke, because we do not want the lingering smell of tobacco on the entertainer's clothing.

What event planners say about our suppliers


Fantastic band who got all our guests dancing! They were very flexible with song choice and gave us plenty of options. The best part was that they learnt our first song - Nickleback, Far Away - and performed it perfectly, almost as if Chad Kroeger was in the room. Everyone talked highly of the music after the wedding and we will definitely be recommending them to anyone with upcoming nuptuals or a large party. Thank you Ben and Ben!


I couldn't have asked for a more professional, talented and friendly group of people to play at my wedding reception in April. Music has always been a really important part of both mine and my husband's lives (in very different ways) and so choosing the right band was at the top of our priority list. We had a look at some other groups before booking these guys but just no one compared! We had heard them play at a friend's wedding the year before and knew they were excellent! We had fantastic feedback from our guests after our big day, who were all in awe of the quality of this group and no one had a bad word to say (and we had guests aged 2-89 there!!) They beautifully played our first dance and had my husband and me near tears, and then were able to get the whole room up and dancing-such fantastic musicianship!! These musicians are the best of the best and I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding just that extra bit more special! X


Winkhaus booked Hayley for a corporate event, we were impressed from start to finish. We have received so many positive comments complementing her music. Thank you Hayley it was a pleasure to work with you.
