One of the best live bands around, The Insiders make a great star attraction for any event, and specialise in spicing up your whole day with live music! Years of experience playing at the weddings, corporate events and parties means they know exactly what works and when: they can provide an extremely cool acoustic set as the backdrop to your ceremony, wedding photos or drinks reception (see The Insiders duo), a raucous rock’n’roll extravaganza for your evening entertainment, or both. They can also add another dimension to their sound with a female vocal, and they can provide all background and DJ music (with lighting and full PA) - and are happy to include your special requests for any type of music or for specific songs (with at least 4 weeks' notice, please).

The band's repertoire spans The Beatles, Elvis and Stevie Wonder through to Snow Patrol, Jesse J, and the Kings Of Leon, and they're happy to tailor their set to suit your personal tastes. Whatever your requirements, they’ll take the hassle out of organising your music, so that you can concentrate on having fun!

What people say Help

  • The band were absolutely fantastic! They sounded great and had us and our guests dancing all night. The first dance song sounded amazing and got our evening off to a great start. They were really professional from first contact, arrived in plenty of time to set-up, and made the logistical side of things on the day really easy. They were also lovely guys and a pleasure to deal with, which is exactly what we wanted as it contributed towards the fun and friendly atmosphere of the day.

    Will, Wedding, Shropshire, October 2016
  • We had loads of comments from guests saying how good you were, and asking how we found you. We had an awesome day, and the evening music was such a big part of it.

    Will, Wedding, Birmingham, September 2016
  • Thanks for playing a major part in making our wedding so special and ensuring our guests went home having really enjoyed themselves. You guys were top notch and I will recommend you to anyone that asks. I can't thank you enough.

    Matt & Laura, Wedding, Warwickshire, 2013

    Adam, Wedding, West Midlands, November 2012
  • The Insiders were absolutely brilliant at our wedding. The set list was very diverse and they played excellently!

    Vicky, Wedding, Gloucestershire, October 2012
  • The band made our day. Two of them played an afternoon acoustic set at our reception, and later that evening we had the full band. Top drawer! Lots of people asked for their details afterwards, so I knew I'd made the right choice. Thanks again for making our day more special!

    Helen, Wedding, Staffordshire, September 2012
  • Just wanted to say a huge big thank you for making my party such a success! Everyone was asking where we found you and compliments have been flowing ever since. I felt we needed to thank you and the band personally. It really was a special evening and would not have been the same without such great music! Hope we have the occasion to book you again.

    Jane, Birthday Party, Cheshire, August 2012
  • The band were brilliant. They played everything from The Stones to Kings Of Leon, and considering we are out in the sticks a little, the place was packed all night. We all had a great New Year's Eve and they even did us a Happy Birthday for one of the customers and Old Lang Syne to see in 2012! I've since had customers asking when they are returning because they were that good, and I have booked them again for this year!

    Proprietor, The Hollybush Inn, New Year's Eve Party, Yorkshire, December 2011
  • I orginally booked the duo after watching them at The Glasshouse in Sandbach, but wanted the 4 piece after realising my party was going to be bigger. They were fantastic and played both acoustic and band music. My friends and family that came to the party loved it and I'm sure they will get repeat bookings after this as they were really good.
