Soulful, passionate, energetic – these are some of the words clients have used to describe The Saints, a crack team of some of the brightest, accomplished young musicians in the north west. Their repertoire covers everything from 50s Rock ‘n’ roll through to funky classics by James Brown and Stevie Wonder, and pop staples by The Beatles and The Killers.

Band members have studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and Leeds College of Music. They’ve played with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Wales and the Manchester University Jazz Orchestra, with famous jazz musicians including Guy Barker and Martin Taylor, and at the Edinburgh Festival. They’ve performed, separately and together throughout the north west, the rest of the UK and Europe.

The band are proud of their dynamic stage presence, fantastic vocals and great musicianship, and will tailor their set list to keep you and guests happy and dancing through the night. Their PA is suitable for events with up to 200 guests and they can hire equipment for larger events if needed. They can also offer a DJ service and/or an acoustic duo in addition to the band, for a full package of entertainment. Saints now work exclusively with Function Central, and our one of our most frequently recommended party and wedding bands in Manchester & the North West.

Dress code is normally all black for private functions but the band are flexible and can dress differently if required.

What people say Help

  • The band were excellent. The music was really good and suitable for the occasion and the members of the band were very professional and courteous. They established a good rapport with the crowd and I have received positive feedback from many of my guests - they all commented on how much they enjoyed the music.

    Gillian, Party, North Yorkshire, April 2017
  • The Saints were amazing, they had everybody up and dancing all night; all of our guests repeatedly told us how brilliant they were and asked where we got them from. They played a wide range of music meaning there was something for everyone, as well as learning a song for our first dance, which they performed brilliantly. They also dj'd the wedding in between sets and offered requests and a specific final song for the last dance. They were incredibly professional and friendly, and could not have done more - providing not only music but plenty of entertainment and interaction with the guests. We would highly recommend The Saints and would definitely book them again for another event!

    Matthew, Wedding, Liverpool, October 2016
  • The band were very accommodating and played extremely well - they played our requests well and a good time was had by all!

    James, Wedding, North Wales, August 2016
  • Thank you so much for Saturday! The band were absolutely brilliant and never let the dance floor get empty. We've had so many comments from our guests about how good you were and how much they loved the music so we really can't thank you enough! Thanks again.

    Sarah and James, Wedding, Lancashire, October 2016
  • Thanks so so much for playing at our wedding last Friday. We loved the sets so so much! People are still coming up to us to say how much they loved you!! Particular loved Proud Mary!!!

    Owain, Wedding, Cumbria, June 2016
  • My husband and I were were so happy with The Saints. They were extremely accomodating, reliable and communication before and during the wedding was great. They are so talented and their two sets were brilliant, so many guests told us how much they loved them. Also their set list was perfect, a wide range of songs that got everyone dancing on the dance floor.

    Jo, Wedding, Cumbria, June 2016
  • We couldn't have asked for anything more! These guys are brilliant and I really can't recommend them highly enough.From start to finish they were consummate professionals. They assessed our music tastes prior to the wedding and had no hesitations in adding our first dance song to their repertoire (they executed it perfectly too!). They are all superbly talented musicians in their own right and their wealth of experience really showed on the night and they really did gauge the audience to perfection!

    Our guests (of all ages) were on the dancefloor from start to finish and the feedback we've had post wedding has been phenomenal.

    If The Saints are available to play your special occasion....I guarantee you will not regret booking them!"

    David, Wedding, Cheshire, May 2016
  • The band on our wedding day was amazing, they was in contact with me before the big day to arrange what type of music we liked and give us great confidence with what they where doing. On the day the performance was fab, all our friends and family loved it, something different as a lot just normally have a DJ but everyone was up dancing and having a great time which we wanted to see. Thank you again for making our day special, would have them all the time for party's and big occasions. We also put a request in for the sax player to play some Ibiza songs which they did with no problems, you just have to inform them in advance so they can deal with your request. Very nice people, easy to speak to and very helpful.

    Kent, Wedding, Manchester, March 2016
  • Extremely satisfied. The band were timely, very friendly and fantastic musicians. We had a couple of the band members do a acoustic set during our drinks reception which was brilliant. During the evening the band performed two sets including our first dance. They were epic! Everyone was on the dance floor and we loved their range of talents. Couldn't be happier. We'd recommend the band to anyone.

    Lynsey, Wedding, Carnforth, July 2015
  • Wow, The Saints were absolutely incredible. So many people have said they have never been to a wedding where the dance floor was constantly jam packed! They guys were lovely and they are really talented musicians. So glad we booked them, they created a real party atmosphere which was exactly what we wanted. I didn't leave the dance floor all night!

    Emily, Wedding, Manchester, April 2015
  • Absolutely amazing! We couldn't have asked for anything more. They got involved with the wedding party and got the younger bridesmaids involved. They were really approachable and were great entertainers. I would recommend them to anybody wanting a brilliant band. Everybody loved them and we have had fantastic feedback from all evening guests.

    Angela, Wedding, Chester, April 2015
  • Great band! I had them at my wedding in 2014. Best money I spent!

    Liz, Wedding, Liverpool, August 2014
  • Thanks guys for performing at our Wedding. Awesome performance and you totally blew me and my guests away on how good you guys are! Thanks for everything!!!

    Chris, Wedding, Liverpool, August 2014
  • Thank you so much for helping kick start our FY15 in style The Saints Band - you were all fantastic and managed to get even the most reluctant dancers up to boogie. Your range of songs and the skills of all your musicians and singer was great, we all thought you were great and really helped create a lively ambience during the evening.

    Ceri, Party, Liverpool, July 2014
  • Absolutely brilliant, couldn't fault them whatsoever! Had everyone at the wedding dancing to amazing vocal and band performance! Even did a special version of our first dance. They are incredibly talented and a pleasure to speak to. I can't thank them enough!

    Barney, Wedding, Manchester, December 2013

    Sarah, Christmas party, Manchester, December 2013
  • The act were truly outstanding. If you are thinking about booking this band my only advice is stop thinking about it and BOOK!! We booked them to play our Wedding and they were absolutely fantastic!!! Great variety of music, fantastic live and got everyone on their feet. Would highly recommend!!

    Jenna, Wedding, Leeds, October 2013

    Daniel, Wedding, Lancashire, August 2013
  • We just wanted to thank you for your amazing performance at our wedding. You were fantastic and everyone young and old(er) had a great time & were full of compliments. We will certainly be recommending you to friends. We felt you were the perfect choice. You put 110% into the performance and had everyone dancing all night. You also kindly learned and played our first dance. Thanks again for putting on a great show!

    Kath & Rich, Wedding, Yorkshire, July 2013
  • I really can't thank you enough for the music last weekend!! Everyone LOVED you guys, from start to finish you had us all on our feet. We wanted a wedding that ensured people of all ages danced and you really did that! We had 3 year old toddlers dancing together with 80 year old men, everything we could have asked for and more! It is never easy picking a band – but you just dazzled! I'll be recommending you to all of our friends and just wish you were in our living room on a daily basis, although we would never get anything done as we would be dancing all the time!

    Alex & Nick, Wedding, Shropshire, June 2013
  • Thank you so much for the performance at our wedding at Bagden Hall. We received many positive comments and would without hesitation recommend you in the future.

    Mark & Julie, Wedding, Huddersfied, 15 June 2013
  • The Saints were absolutely incredible. Completely surpassed our expectations. There's always a danger of a band being too much of a wedding band but these guys were fun, fresh and really played to their crowd. I've never seen a dance floor so packed when the band is playing. What was so nice of them is that they let some of us join in too. There's a girl in our year who is a drummer, and they had no problem to let her play a song with them. We also didn't give them a set plan of timings and what to play when, and when to start with the DJ service. So they played it completely be ear and got it spot on.

    Natalie, Graduation Ball, Bosworth, June 2013
  • We were very happy. The band looked and sounded great. Communication before the event was really helpful and they played a number of our requests. Guests have commented on how fantastic they were. In particular they were very friendly and personable and did a great job with the first dance which was above and beyond as we provided our own singer for that track. We were made to feel that this was absolutely no problem. We enjoyed all of the tracks they played but "kiss" was a particular highlight.

    The DJ service worked very well and made the entertainment seamless. We could not have been happier and would absolutely recommend/higher again. They kept the party going and had such a great sound.

    Anita , Wedding, London, May 2013
  • We were very satisfied with the Saints, they were a very professional band and totally made our wedding party go off with a bang. All up and dancing from the offset and right to the end of the evening. Thank you so much from all who attended, Tamsin and Zaks wedding x

    Deborah, Wedding, Shropshire, May, 2013
  • We cannot thank you guys enough everyone commented on how good you guys were and the proof was on the dance floor. You guys were absolutely incredible and we are both so grateful for making our evening as memorable as our day.

    David, Wedding, Harrogate, March 2013
  • Thank you so much - what a great gig! Please pass on our huge thanks to all the band members. The sounds and vibe you created really were fantastic. Lots of people commented to us that the band was great. The dance floor was never empty which I think says it all!
    Please feel free to quote the above as a review if it would be useful - the words are absolutely sincere.
    Thank you again - you made our night.

    Claire and Rob, Wedding, Cheshire, March 2013
  • Satisfied does not begin to describe how we feel - the band were fantastic - the only fault was the night had to end. They were great amenable lads with a fantastic varied set list and the lead singer has a great voice, the lads backing him were brilliant too and knew their stuff. We will use them again, they made our night and we cannot praise them enough.

    Helen, Corporate event, York, March 2013
  • Very satisfied they were fun and performed awesomely. Everyone danced from pretty much the first song which is always a good indicator of how good they were. They listened to our requests in the run up to the event playing songs we liked. They appeared organised and professional.

    James , Wedding, London, November, 2012
  • The Saints were fantastic, able to perform our first dance perfectly and exactly as we wanted. Kept the guests on the dance floor all night and helped our memorable date continue all the way thought to closing time! The only disappointment was it ending!

    Simon, Wedding, Yorkshire, November 2012
  • The Saints were fun and performed awesomely. Everyone dance from pretty much the first song which is always a good indicator of how good they were. They listened to our requests in the run up to the event playing snogs we liked. They appeared organised and professional.

    Simon, Wedding, Lemington Spa, August, 2012
  • The service from Function Central was fantastic and very professional. Thank you. The band themselves were very professionally and turned up at the venue in good time to set up ready for an 8pm start. They were exceptionally good and got our wedding rocking in no time! All musicians and Simon the singer were fantastic and I would gladly book them again. Communication prior to our wedding was great and a member of the band even visited the venue (our home) to make sure they could find it on the day. Highly recommended for any occasion.

    Antony, Wedding, Preston, May 2012
  • Can I please take this opportunity to sing the praises of The Saints. We had an amazing night and the band were just fantastic. Great sound, great music, great singer, just an all round good atmosphere. Everyone at the wedding said how brilliant they were. We had booked last minute and I must say how happy we were at the bands work and performance. Please pass on our praise and regards with thanks. We will certainly be hoping to book this band for future celebrations.
