Backlight are an internationally-acclaimed live band and light-show act, armed with a venue-filling, fully-synchronised lighting rig, standing hybrid drum kit, keytar/keyboard, and an incredible, dynamic female vocalist.

Performing in polygonal masks, Backlight offer a never-ending repertoire of party-starters and floor-fillers featuring club tunes, UK garage, EDM remixes and Drum N Bass, modern pop and R'n'B as well as rock and indie classics.

To complement their music, Backlight's high energy performances are perfectly synchronised with a concert-level light show with eye-catching colour combinations, beat-matched to every track. With the latest, cutting edge software and controller units, Backlight are guaranteed to take your celebration to the next level.

The show was amazing - I got lots of kudos for finding these guys! Highly recommended!! Tracey, Event Manager, London

If you're having a funk or pop-rock night, you can add Backlight's amazing guitarist for that funk drive and ripping iconic guitar solos!

Backlight are equally as comfortable playing large corporate events as they are playing birthdays and weddings. The band are known for their attention to details and can provide a microphone for speeches or even a custom light sequence to transform your first dance.

If you’re looking for something truly unique to make your event stand out, look no further!

“We spent so long searching for something different for our wedding day, and we're so glad we found Backlight. They were so nice while dealing with me and all my flustering with the arrangements, planning the songs and our first dance. Then on the big day they totally blew everyone away. We wanted quite a diverse set of songs to cater to all our guests and Backlight absolutely smashed it. They gave us a perfect end to a perfect day!”

Laura, Wedding, Cambridge

“Backlight were an absolute pleasure to deal with, from our initial enquiry to booking them, and throughout all the arrangements in the run-up to our big event. The show was amazing, I got lots of kudos for finding these guys! Highly recommended!!”
