The Paramounts are a stylish wedding and party band, formed by three of London's most up-and-coming musicians, able to cover everything from chilled-out lounge music to high energy, dance-floor filling classics.

Individually band members have toured with Supergrass and The Kin, supported acts including The Coral and Taylor Hawkins and jammed with Dave Grohl and The Foo Fighters. In the process, they’ve toured extensively throughout Europe, America and the UK. They've also appeared on radio shows for XFM and BBC6 Music and several local stations.

Now working as one of Function Central's exclusive roster of wedding and party bands, the Paramounts have performed more than 300 live shows in the last 2 years: highlights include performing a live set in LA for Kiefer Sutherland and supporting Bill Bailey at a charity event.

The band take pride in their authentic live sound – no backing tracks or recorded parts here. Two of the band are trained sound engineers, and it shows! If you book them for your event you can expect attention to detail, a friendly approach and an energetic performance.

The band offer an optional DJ service before between and after sets (using the latest Numark iDJ mixer to mix tracks between two iPods), for a fraction of the cost of hiring a separate DJ. For the fullest possible sound the band can be augmented with a second guitar to form a rocking 4-piece, or keyboards - or both.

The Paramounts also play as a duo called The Buskers for smaller events. Featuring energetic cajon and acoustic guitar, the duo is perfect if you're looking for a big sound on a small budget!

Due to high demand, please expect an increase on the advertised guide fees for all Fridays and Saturdays.

What people say Help

  • Top band that really made our wedding, couldn't be a nicer bunch of fellas. My wife and I will always remember you telling us you would play our first dance live despite us not remembering to ask. The dance floor was only empty once you left! Book them now!

    Niki, Wedding, West Midlands, November 2016
  • We had you at our wedding on Saturday 9th July at Colchester. We wanted to let you know that us and our guests thought you were fantastic!!

    Danny, Wedding, Colchester, July 2016
  • The band had a great repertoire which suited our taste and was ideal for our wedding. They were flexible about setting up times and and when they played. They created a good atmosphere and filled the gaps between sets with appropriate music.

    Rebecca, Wedding, Oxfordshire, April 2016

  • VERY satisfied! The band were professional from start to finish! They played all of the song choices requested, kept the momentum going throughout their performance and sounded great! Please pass on our thanks to the band members and we hope they enjoyed the day as much as we did. Thanks again Function Central!!

    Sheree, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, June 2015
  • The band were exactly as we had hoped, arrived in plenty of time to set up and got on with this from support from the venue without any need to disturb us. We have already received great feedback from a number of friends and family about the quality of the performance and are so pleased at how all turned out. Thank you!

    Bryony, Wedding, Dorset, May 2015
  • Exceptionally satisfied. They were incredibly professional, and thoroughly nice guys too. They even let our cousins play a few songs with their equipment!

    Stephanie, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, September 2014
  • We were delighted with The Paramounts and would book them again in an instant. They learnt our first dance perfectly and didn't just attempt to replicate the original but put their own style into it which made it even more memorable. They are fantastic musicians with a lot of energy and talent. From the first dance to the encore, the dance floor was packed. The band played a great varied setlist with something for everyone and even took a few requests. We've had so many comments about how great they were.

    Catherine, Wedding, Oxford, August 2014
  • Very satisfied. The band were very accommodating and professional, setting up their kit discreetly. They have a great song list spanning many eras and performed them perfectly.

    Steve, Wedding, Essex, September 2014
  • We wanted to say a big thank you to you guys for such a great night on Saturday 10th May. We have had so many great comments about you from our guests. The music makes the night and you, your music and your talent made it the best night! X Penny & Richard.

    Penny & Richard , West Midlands, May 2014
  • Thanks for not letting anyone leave the dancefloor at our wedding, amazing music! We loved every minute, just a shame it had to end!!!

    Alice, Wedding, Hampshire, May 2014
  • We were more satisfied than ever expected. Cannot fault a thing! We had an acoustic set which was a great start to the night as guests arrived and ate. Then live sets and DJ-ing all by the band. The dance floor was full all night and I have had comments ever since from guests raving about the band and even enquiring to book! We Cannot thank you guys enough! The music makes the night and you, your music and your talent made it the best night! X

    Penny, Wedding Party, Kent, May 2014
  • We were delighted with the band. They arrived without issue and set up and sound-checked very discreetly. The guys were very personable and set up their mic for use for the speeches. Their sets were perfect for our guests (a mix of old and young). They had people dancing in an age range of 12-90. Fantastic. We loved them and no one wanted the night to end!

    Sally, Wedding, Kent, April 2014
  • The Paramounts were great. They set up while we ate and you wouldn't have known they were there. Their performance was excellent and so many people commented on how good they were. They had a really varied selection of music that was all good to dance to!

    Jenny, Wedding, Solihull, April 2014
  • The band were amazing. They where polite, professional arrived on time, set-up as planned and played well into the night. All our guest said how good the band was and all asked how we found them. Our first dance song was played perfectly and we both could not be happier with the group. Even the band members where dancing with our guests in between sets! The DJ service was good and complimented the bands performance. Overall they are a great act and a credit to the function central. Would defo book this band for any future functions we have!

    Bryan, Wedding, Hampshire, October 2013
  • The Paramounts were very professional as well as friendly, everyone commented how good they were and they really got the room up dancing!! Would definitely recommend to others!

    Emma, Wedding, Southampton, September 2013
  • Massive thanks to you guys for making our Wedding night and getting everyone on their feet!

    Reece, Wedding, London, August 2013
  • To the Paramounts: just wanted to send you a note to say how amazing you were - you completed our night! We spent hours looking at different wedding bands on the internet and when we came across The Paramounts we knew we had to book you. We listened to your samples on the website and knew from your song repertoire that not only did you sound great but you would appeal to all ages. You were very accommodating throughout the whole process. You agreed to do an early set up and you even learn't our first dance song. Our wedding was housed in a tipi and I was a little concerned that a band would be overpowering but you sounded brilliant! We cannot thank you enough. We had so many good comments and feedback from friends and family who loved your set. Thank you so much, Sarah and Callum.

    Sarah & Callum, Wedding, Ashby de la Zouch, August 2013
  • These guys totally made the day. They were happy to accommodate the ever changing locations we made them play in and they made a bunch of annoying musicians in the audience really welcome. Had nothing but good feedback from all the guests. Cheers for a great evening!!

    Ross & Bash , Wedding, London, July 2013
  • FANTASTIC BAND!! The Paramounts were the perfect choice for our big day. The guys were really relaxed and professional, helping us to select our first dance and choosing the music for the evening. They had everyone on the dance floor all night and we have had so many comments from friends and family about how brilliant the band were! Thanks to the band for making our big day so perfect!!

    Sam, Wedding, Cotswolds, June 2013
  • We were extremely satisfied with the band. Our speeches and dinner went on longer then planned but they were perfectly happy waiting for us to finish, they were polite, friendly and above all they were absolutely amazing performers. They have a fantastic repertoire and got everyone up dancing. They clearly enjoyed playing every track and even did solo's at the end showing off their talents on the guitar and drums, which was amazing!

    Kirsty, Wedding, Exeter, June 2013
  • We can't thank these guys enough, they were absolutely amazing!!! A great bunch of lads, friendly, professional and most of all they could really bang out the tunes! From the moment they started playing right through to the end of the evening they kept the dance-floor packed. Everybody commented on how amazing they were and its a fact that our wedding wouldn't have been nearly as successful without them. Thanks again so much lads!!!

    Aodhan, Wedding, West Sussex, June 2013
  • We were more than extremely satisfied. They arrived and set up very discreetly. We could not have been more happy with our first dance which they did an amazing version of. The songs they played meant a full dance floor throughout the night. The mash up of Steve Wonder's Superstition was amazing. It meant that our perfect day really was perfect.

    Zegnia, Wedding, Suffolk, May 2013
  • The guys were simply phenomenal - I heard nothing but compliments for them all day long. They played in the ceremony (a beautiful acoustic version of She by Elvis Costello as my wife walked down the aisle), the drinks receptions (amazing collection of songs from Mr Blue Sky to a selection of Foo Fighters songs again all acoustic) and then the evening dancing as well (full band set up culminating in a Grease/Johnny Be Goode mash up that proved to be a highlight of the whole day!).

    I cannot praise the chaps highly enough and urge anyone reading this to book them now.

    Neil , Wedding, Somerset, May 2013
  • We had high expectations of The Paramounts already having seen them perform and loved them at a friends wedding two years ago but they totally blew this performance out of the water at our wedding and exceeded our expectations hugely! we have had nothing but compliments for them since then from friends and family old and young and their performance of jungle book particularly made my night! fantastic versions of great songs with their own special twist, BRILLIANT!

    Thank you so much guys, we will not stop recommending you to people!

    Very best of wishes.

    Leanne , Wedding, Hampshire, May 2013
  • The band really worked hard to get people dancing, played fantastic tracks and were very professional. They allowed Jon's brother and sisters to use the sound equipment to perform a couple of live songs first which was really important to our day. We had lots of people ask for their contact details, they really impressed our guests and had everyone from Abbie's 80 year Gran to 3 year cousin Doris dancing!

    Abigail, Wedding, London, January 2013
  • We couldn't be more happy with The Paramounts. The guys set up and sound-checked quietly and discreetly. They were incredibly flexible and happy for us to do our first dance once we were ready. They then played our first dance song absolutely perfectly and just as we had requested. The rest of the set was absolutely seamless and they read the crowd perfectly. Everyone of all ages was up and dancing the whole night. It was such fun! Thank you!

    Laura, Wedding, Leicestershire, January 2013
  • Myself and my husband booked the Paramounts for our Wedding blessing on the 4th November 2012, they were fantastic and got people up dancing from the moment they started. We loved the variety of music they played and our guests commented on them throughout the night. The evening would not have been the same without them and we would recommend them for any event they will make your night.

    Debra, Wedding Blessing, Grantham, November 2012
  • The band were outstanding, we had a look around at a number of bands before going for the Paramounts and from listening to the demos we had pretty high expectations but on they day they surpassed even those! Their performance was full of energy and everyone had a great time. I couldn't fault a thing.

    Daniel, Wedding, Oxford, November 2012
  • The Paramounts are AMAZING! From the moment we heard them on their demo, we knew they were the one and they didn't disappoint!
    Professional, note perfect, talented, flexible, pure raw talent. Everyone was raving about them, and we couldn't have been happier. Thanks guys, you made our day!

    Danielle, Wedding, Dorset, August 2012
  • We hired these guys for our wedding a few months ago and they were just perfect. Both of us are musicians and we really couldn't fault them at all! The lead guitarist had so much feel in his playing and the whole package was totally worth the money. I had some details to arrange with the band before the wedding and they were very accommodating which helped us to relax and just focus on enjoying our special day. One thing I have to congratulate them on is getting my mother
    on the dance floor! This is something I haven't seen in a long time! To sum up, book these guys with confidence, you wont be disappointed!

    Michael, Wedding - July 2011
  • What a night... We couldn't have asked for anything more! We requested a first dance and the guys did an amazing job and kept everyone entertained for the rest of the night. I especially loved their version of Stevie Wonder - Superstition. Aside from the live performance all the members are extremely polite and were great company throughout the evening. We recommend them very highly! Thanks again guys, we'll spread the word!

    Steve & Janet - , Wedding - June 2011
  • Just emailing to say a big thank you for making our wedding so special. My and my husband loved every minute of it! I found it really hard to choose a band for the wedding but I'm glad I chose you guys. I was so skeptical about booking a band as I know with today's technology you can make anyone sound good. This definitely wasn't the case. I loved the bands demos but the live versions were just a whole new level of amazing. I'm still getting some of the guests from the wedding telling me how amazing they thought you were. I'll be sure to pass on your details. For those thinking of booking the band please don't hesitate as they really are worth it!!
