Headed up by a singer/bass player extraordinaire, these guys are overflowing with rock 'n' roll good vibes and authenticity. Melody, harmony, attitude, crowd pleasing charm, they've got it all. Band members have performed with The Counterfeit Stones as well as backing up ex-members of the Stereophonics and Kula Shaker. The band are available as a stripped-down trio with a huge sound, or a four piece for that extra depth and dimension.

The boys are used to venues of all shapes and sizes and crowds of all ages, so you can be sure their act will be tailored to your event. Their corporate clients include Nationwide, Titan Airways, the National Round Table and many others, and they've played as far afield as Sardinia and the South of France in the last year alone. The band work exclusively through Function Central.

Due to very high demand, please expect higher fees for Fridays and Saturdays between May and September.

    Alex, Wedding, Devon, August 2016
  • The Crossfades were fab! A great mix of music that got everyone up on the dancefloor! They also responded to the crowd and seemed to tailor their set to the audience. Great band, would highly recommend!!

    Amy & Alex, Wedding, Gloucestershire, September 2016
  • We were very happy on the day with the band. Music from the 60's through to the modern day. They traveled 150 miles, turned up on time, set up quietly and were very accommodating.

    Andrew, Wedding, Devon, August 2016
  • The act were amazing. They kept the dance floor full and were friendly and easy to deal with.

    Jenny & Chris, Wedding, Cornwall, June 2016
  • We were so pleased with The Crossfades! We had so much amazing feedback from everyone about what a great set they played and the music in between was brilliant. Being music lovers, the band was a super important part of our wedding and we were not disappointed! They were very talented musicians! We cannot thank them enough for finishing our wedding odd so brilliantly!

    Hannah, Wedding, Christchurch, February 2016
  • The Crossfades were brilliant, professional and got lots of people onto the dance floor. They played our special request better than I could have expected and they played a great mix of new and classics as requested!

    Zena & Jake, Wedding, Devon, November 2015
  • Thanks to the Crossfades for making our party a real night to remember. The band were really great and kept everybody dancing from start to finish. The music was fab and they put their hearts and souls into it. Everybody had a good comment to make about them - they managed to keep young and old dancing all night. A very big thank you!! Highly recommended.

    Tina, Private Party, Bristol, October 2015
  • The band were absolutely outstanding and got the party well and truly started. Our guests were entirely complimentary and the quality of performance and interaction from the band was very high.

    Paul, Wedding, Essex, July 2015
  • We were very satisfied with The Crossfades! Everyone commented on how good they were.

    Lynn, Wedding, Bristol. July 2015
  • The Crossfades were really good, they performed lots of classic indie tunes. We had good feedback from guests to say how they stayed on beyond their set to keep the dance floor going. They were very accommodating to requests from guests. They were really flexible with timings and lengths of performances when the start of their performance had to be delayed.

    James, Wedding, Truro, February 2015
  • Just a quick email to say thanks for sorting out The Crossfades for our function on Saturday. Everyone had such a good time. I hope the band enjoyed themselves as well as the dance-floor was full all night long. I told the guys from the band that I would send a testimonial for your website so it would be glad if you could pass this onto the band as well. I would like to thank the band personally for making our reception so special. They are extremely talented musicians and kept the 150 guests fully entertained with their extensive repertoire of dancefloor and rock classics. I lost count of the number of people who came up to me during the party to ask how I found the band. Every inch of the dance-floor was full of admirers and there was audible disappointment when the band finished their set. A number of friends with weddings in the next few years have already asked me for the band's number as they were so impressed. Thanks so much and hopefully see you again soon at other functions in future.

    Matt, Wedding, Somerset
  • I can honestly say that The Crossfades were fantastic. They were young enthusiastic and the music rocked – a very talented group of polite young men. We received so many compliments about the music, they created a real party atmosphere. I think people were delighted not to have the traditional ‘cheese’ played by an overweight, annoying, intrusive DJ who thinks the party is more about him than the guests. I would certainly recommend The Crossfades to anyone who wants a great party with a bit of pop/rock and some killer riffs!

    David, Wedding, Bristol
  • The Crossfades were fantastic and provided a lively and fun atmosphere at our wedding reception. They had everyone dancing, including our 92 year old Gran and we do and would recommend them to everyone!

    Anna, Wedding, August, Bath
  • We chose The Crossfades based on their great repertoire - and we weren't disappointed. They played all our favourites and had people dancing all night (even my friend with a broken ankle). They had great energy and stage presence and they instigated some very enthusiastic audience participation! We had surprised everyone with some (very classy) blow up guitars for some full on rock action and these were put to good use during their rendition of Livin' on a Prayer (amongst many other classics!). Many people commented on their performance, and my husband has even gone as far to say that 'Video Killed the Radio Star' should now be one of 'our songs'!! Massive thanks to all the band - I would be happy to recommend them to anyone.

    Rebecca, Wedding, June, Devon
  • The Crossfades did my 40th birthday party for around 100 guests of all ages and backgrounds; the guys were absolutely brilliant at playing something for everyone, and it was all the highest quality in vocals, music, timing...honestly, every guest told me how impressed they were and even today I have been asked for their details for a friends wedding next summer! Many thanks to the whole band - the party was totally fantastic because of them.

    Deborah, Birthday Party, Gloucestershire
  • Mike, band were brilliant can you thank them for making the evening of our wedding one we will never forget! Thanks for everything.

    Dave, Wedding, Somerset
  • Thanks guys for recommending The Crossfades to us - they absolutely rock! From start to finish they were complete gents, a delight to deal with and much better looking than their photo suggests! And as for the music; they were totally awesome. They had to please a range of ages from ultra-cool teenagers to doddery old farts and did so incredibly well. I had so many people asking me how I found the band and telling me they were amazing, I lost count. Their repertoire is really wide ranging and they sound so good that it didn't take long until there was no room on the dance floor, which I think says it all, as do my worn out feet! There's not many a night you will see people doing the twist one minute, rocking and rolling the next, followed by a good pogoing/headbanging session!! Thank you again heaps - we'd have them back every week!

    Katie, Wedding, Bristol
  • Thanks for the band guys. They were brilliant, big time. I love the Killers, and the lads renditions were ace. The camp were impressed and I got a pat on the back. Your details are up on our entertainment board, and a lot of people are asking who I went through. Hopefully we'll do business again. Really appreciate it.

    Mark, Mess Ball, Hampshire
