Playing classics from the Stones to the Scissor Sisters, The Transformers are four genteel types from Bath who burst into life under the faintest glimmer of a spotlight!
Since meeting at music college, The Transfomers have played at countless pub, club and wedding gigs including performances at Glastonbury Festival and The Camden Jazz Cafe. Two members of the band work alongside Peter Gabriel among other world class artists. With a wide range of musical styles in their repertoire, The Transformers can cater for any tastes from rock to reggae. The band's exuberant frontman has played in various original bands over the years and even had a record deal in the 90's, enjoying a great deal of success internationally and making many TV and radio appearances.
This Somerset based function band are entertaining and full of enthusiasm, and offer a professional service with minimum fuss. They're always game for a bit of audience participation, and even offer their own "bandeoke" service if required - basically karaoke with a live band (see bandeoke set below).

What people say
We cannot thank The Transformers enough for the wonderful performance from our wedding day. We thought that the songs chosen on the day created what we thought was the perfect atmosphere for our occasion. All of our guests have commented on the music and how good they thought the music & band was. The quality of the band’s music was first class, and we found the band members all very accommodating to our needs, which made one less thing to worry about on such a hectic day.

Gemma and I wanted to say how superb we thought The Transformers were. All we received from our guests were compliments of the highest order and rightly too as the music and delivery was excellent. It's a testament to how good it was that I couldn't actually get my new wife off the dance floor!

What can I say? The boys were brilliant last night and really contributed to everyone's enjoyment of the evening. So many people said how much they had enjoyed their set. They played to a packed dance floor, which is quite an achievement on a Thursday night! They are all so talented and their repertoire fitted the bill perfectly. It was lovely to meet the boys and I do hope that I will be able to book them again in the future! I would like to thank you for all your help also - it has been a pleasure to deal with you.

Can I just say this band were absolutely amazing they had the room buzzing from start to finish and on a personal note, nicer guys I have yet to meet everybody was asking where they had come from and I am sure they will be considered for future bookings at this venue, what a night!!!

Brilliant! The music was excellent and their interaction with the audience seriously enhanced the evening. I would definitely book them again.

The Transformers were the perfect choice as our wedding band. They were thoroughly accommodating when it came to our rather pedantic requests and the level of their communication before the event was spot on. Their set was expertly paced and their natural exuberance and energy ensured the dancefloor was the most popular place to be throughout the evening. None of our guests wanted them to finish, demanded an encore, and have all since commented how much they enjoyed the band.
Arranging a band to play at our wedding through Function Central was a pleasure. At a time when things can easily prove stressful it was great to be able to relax in the knowledge that all of the details were being taken care of. Our instructions were all considered and delivered in a most professional manner and the communication with our dedicated contact was always efficient and friendly. Function Central will be the first place I visit when I next organise an event and I would recommend them to anybody.
