London duo The Buskers are talented musicians with a crowd-pleasing song list featuring vintage and modern anthems by artists such as Elvis, Queen, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran. The duo artfully weave cajon, hand percussion, acoustic guitar and lead/backing vocals into a sound every bit as big and rhythmic as a band twice their size.

Unusually for a live duo, they're able to get guests dancing at evening wedding receptions without resorting to rhythm section backing tracks – a testament to their musicianship, energy and showmanship.

The Buskers have spent the last few years performing at hundreds of weddings, parties, hotels and bars, honing their distinctive sound to perfection. Their enthusiasm for what they do is infectious, and has made them one of Function Central’s most sought-after most popular exclusive wedding bands in London. Their corporate clients include Google, The NHS, Oxfam, H&M and the Wimbledon Championships.

If you're looking for a slightly bigger band, The Buskers are part of another of Function Central's most in-demand acts, The Paramounts. and they also offer a laptop DJ service featuring a large database of songs. Highly recommended!

Due to high demand, please expect an increase on the advertised "from" fees for all Friday and Saturday night events in peak season (usually April - September).

    David, Company Party in Angel, London, September 2017
  • The Buskers were absolutely brilliant. We had so many compliments from our guests and even our videographer said they were one of the best they've heard. We searched for months for the perfect act and when we had decided to book them Function Central were fab too. They were so accommodating to every request/change we had. Our first dance was made even more special by them singing the song for us, which they nailed! Great act and definitely worth booking. Thank you so much for making our day even more perfect.

  • The guys were fantastic and everyone we have spoke to since the event has told us how brilliant they thought they were. They contributed to a great evening which was very memorable and enjoyed by everyone. They interacted so well with guests and tailored the playlist to many requests putting their own unique spin on songs along the way.

    Tim, Wedding at The Tythe Barn in Bicester, August 2017

Our guests absolutely loved what they added to our drinks and canapés reception and we even got a cheeky photo too! Please book these guys for your event, you will not be disappointed!!!!

    Stacey, Wedding at Old Luxters Barn, Henley on Thames, May 2017
  • The Buskers were FANTASTIC, easy going and just a joy to have at the wedding. Our guests were really impressed and the song choices were perfect to get everyone up dancing and singing along. We had a second band later in the evening who couldn't stop singing their praises, saying they were great musicians and really easy and fun to work with. I would recommend these guys to anyone and everyone!

  • The band arrived on time and were absolutely fantastic throughout the night. There wasn't a moment when they didn't have people up dancing. We're both delighted we picked The Buskers to play on our special day - their version of our first dance song was incredible and ensured the day was as special as we hoped it would be and more. We'd like to thank them for the incredible show they put on for us and we would recommend them to anyone looking for a band for their wedding!

    James, Wedding, Essex, May 2016
  • The guys were absolutely brilliant! They were so friendly and chatty, they arrived and sorted themselves out, set up all very organised and without any issues. They played great songs and tailored the music to the people dancing i.e children and adults. I really can't thank them enough for being so much fun yet professional and really making our wedding reception. We had amazing feedback from our guests regarding their set list, personalities and talent. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Eleanor, Wedding, Norwich, August 2016

    Zoe, Wedding, Suffolk, August 2016
  • Just wanted to leave a quick message to say thank you to Mike at Function Central for recommending 'The Buskers' for our wedding reception. They were amazing, we have had so many comments on them and people asking for their details. Due to a mix up the boys stepped in as a last minute replacement but really were great, they set up fast with minimal disruption to our guests. I can not speak highly enough of them - thank you for the wonderful atmosphere you created and for helping out last minute.

    Helen, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • The Buskers were outstanding and better than we expected. They really engaged with our guests and created a wonderful party atmosphere. So talented! Everyone really enjoyed hearing them play and dancing the night away. Played many of the songs we specifically requested and so very professional.

    Anna, Wedding, Hertfordshire, April 2016
  • A very cool, approachable, easy to talk to 'team'. They were very accommodating and did exactly as we wished. Very talented and flexible - created a good atmosphere. Many people there took their cards and I really hope some additional business comes their way as a result of the night.

    Laura, Private Party, February 2016
  • The Buskers were fantastic and really got on well with the audience at our wedding. They added something special to our evening and everyone from the little flower girls to our older guests were up and dancing! Would definitely recommend - thank you for helping make our day so special.

    Diana & Andy , Wedding, Surrey, January 2016

    Jackie, Wedding, Portsmouth, May 2015
  • We thought The Buskers were brilliant. They got everybody up and dancing, played lots of great songs and even learnt a new song for our first dance request. They were very accommodating to all requests and were very friendly throughout the night. I would highly recommend them - they exceeded all our expectations.

    Janine, Wedding, Bath, November 2014
  • We were completely satisfied with our band! They were amazing we really can not rate them high enough. They got every guest up dancing which made our day a complete success! They were very polite and professional.

    Mica, Wedding, London, September 2014
  • The buskers were BEYOND amazing!! Our crowd went from 8 months - 80 and everything in between with 110 in number. These guys appealed to everyone. They were so accommodating relaxed, the singe ladies were swooning, the older ones wanted to take them home and the men wanted to be them! The style and range of music was ace and my goodness they grinned and smiled throughout. They really set the tone!! WE LOVED THEM!!!

    Rachael & Mike , Wedding, London, August 2014
  • The Buskers were unbelievably good! Our first dance request was a mash up of Thousand Years & Bomdiggy (my wife loved Another Level...) - they didn't blink at the challenge and they did it absolutely superbly. Polite, on time, mixed with guests well and stayed on a bit later after many many requests to do so! Everyone loved them, we are already planning a one year anniversary party and the first job will be to book these two great lads.

    Andy, Wedding, Hampshire, December 2013
  • The Buskers were very friendly and approachable, they performed beautifully and everyone was thrilled with their song choices.

    Rebecca, Private party, Chichester, December 2013
  • The Buskers were superb and mixed well with the guests at our wedding. They arrived early, were happy and cheerful, and had a great sense of humour to kick the night off!

    Paul, Wedding, Gloucestershire, September 2013
  • The Buskers were amazing! All night people were commenting how amazing there were, and my friends are most definitely the type of people to criticize when they feel things aren't good!! They turned up and I didn't even notice there were there until I saw someone I didn't recognize! They interacted with my DJ very well and meant I didn't need to co-ordinate who was playing when or anything! I would definitely recommend the band to friends and family who were having an event in the future.

    Summer, Wedding, Cornwall, September 2013
  • The Buskers were fantastic!! Music was amazing, great mix of songs, the dance floor was busy all night. All of the guests commented on how great and friendly the band were and a couple of friends even want to book them for their wedding since seeing them perform at ours! Thank you so much!!!

    Alice, Wedding, Gloucestershire, July 2013
  • The Buskers were awesome and drew praise from everyone who watched them. The singers voice was fantastic. Once again professional, polite and brilliant musicians. Thank you!

    Nik, HMS Forces Event, Lincolnshire, June 2013
  • They were amazing! They turned up and got ready with no disruption to any of the guests or the day! They also coordinated with the venue to get a seamless transition moving from our background music to the live music. Once they were playing they just got everyone up and dancing and having a great time. We didn’t tell them what to play or really very much at all, but they interacted with the audience and always seemed to have the dance floor full of happy people. I’m really at a loss to get across just how much we enjoyed having The Buskers at our wedding, if we were to have another function we would get them in every time.

    Jason, Wedding, Cornwall, April 2013
  • We were thrilled with The Buskers, as soon as they arrived and introduced themselves we knew that it would be a fantastic night. They were extremely friendly and chilled which was great and they seemed to like what we had done with the venue. They asked us which way we would be comfortable having our songs as we had asked for them to play our first dance which they agreed to gladly. As soon as they started playing it was wonderful, great sound and wonderful voices. Our first dance was really special and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We had so many compliments for The Buskers and how great they were and our guests really said that they loved their sound and the ones that had spoken to them said how friendly they were. Looking back on our day, there is no way that any other band would have even come close to how great The Buskers were for us. They were perfect and we can't thank them enough for all they did that night, they were so friendly and genuinely lovely guys, the music was fantastic and our wedding night experience was complete.

    Astra, Wedding, March, Bath 2013
  • Yes happy, the guys were amazing! I was nervous as I had not actually seen them perform before so was worried how it might turn out but they are great guys. They really got the crowd going from the young to the old. There was music to suit all tastes. Would definitely book again, and already have had friends and family ask me for details on where I had booked them as they want to use them in the future.

    Louise, Wedding, Devon, November 2012
  • The act were amazing. Everyone was commenting all night about how good they were and asking where I had found them. They got us all dancing until the early hours and really became part of the party. They were such nice guys and performed so well. Their repertoire was fantastic with something for everyone. They were such good value, would recommend them to anybody. Thanks again lads for making our wedding reception so spectacular

    Emma, Wedding, Somerset, September 2012
  • The band arrived early and set up quickly and quietly. Nothing had to be repeated on the night! Very independent guys, didn't need any help over anything. Very pleasant chaps. Everyone had a great time and lots of dancing was had by all. A good choice of songs - especially reacting to my brother's bizarre requests.

    Carah, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, July 2012
  • The service provided by The Buskers was second to none. They played 3 separate sets and kept the dancefloor going all night. They were so accommodating and agreed to learn a new song which I requested for them to play to my wife on the wedding night. Such nice guys too, we were chatting with them for over an hour after their sets had finished. I could not recommend them MORE!

    Paul, Wedding, Avon, May 2012
  • The Buskers were absolutely fantastic. We could not rate them highly enough, the atmosphere was out of this world, the boys were awesome and I did not see one person leave the dancefloor all night. The booking was easy, communication was prompt, timing was good and the quality was exceptional. Will definitely recommend for future weddings. 10/10

    Zoe, Wedding, Northampton, April 2012
  • The Buskers could not have been anymore entertaining if they tried. They contacted me a few days before our wedding to discuss what kind of music we are into which I thought was great as my biggest fear was people not enjoying the music. We sent them across a list of songs that we liked so they got a feel of what we were after. They even learned our first dance song which was Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. At the wedding they arrived early, despite a long drive from Oxford and set up quickly and with no problems.

    Their singing and entertainment was second to none. Cant fault them one bit. They had EVERYBODY up on the dancefloor all night. Soooo pleased with them. They topped our wedding off and our guests are still talking about them."

    Helen, Wedding, Sheffield, March 2012
  • DELETE Just wanted to just send you a bit of feedback about The Buskers that we hired for our wedding a few weeks ago. We were a bit nervous about booking them without seeing them first but we were so pleased we picked them. They made our evening and their infectious style and choice of songs got everyone on the dance floor right from the start and it stayed like that for the rest of the evening. It was a really good mixture of songs which meant everyone could join in. They are both lovely lovely, laid back guys and it ended up feeling like they were part of the party. Everyone congratulated on us picking such a good band and we thank them both so much for making our evening go with a bang.

    Tom, Wedding, August 2011
  • The band MADE my 18th birthday party, such great guys with amazing voices and had fun at the same time...definitely will be booking them again!

    Laura, Birthday Party
  • I have the pleasure of listening to these two beauties every other week, class performers with hours of stunning covers. They’ve made my nights at the Cape Of Good Hope an absolute pleasure to be a part of. They will always be my 1st port of call when putting on events in and around Oxfordshire. Fact.

    Lee, Oxfordshire Promoter
  • Two likeable guys with a great set list. Monthly residents here at Copa. Book them with confidence.
