Fun, friendly and flexible, the band are as suitable for golden oldies who still remember the ark as for kids wanting the latest chart hits. Their repertoire stretches as far back as the birth of rock’n’roll and blues in the 50s, and continues right through to Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars (as well as any special song or first dance you request).

In addition to the seventy-odd weddings the band perform every year, they also play for Bar Mitzvahs, charity events, residencies and functions for big-name corporate clients such as Natwest, H&M, Manchester University, AJ Bell and Dunwoody.

Every band member has featured on at least one Top 40 Singles Chart and appeared on Top 10 albums as session players. They've worked with artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, The Merseybeats, The Searchers, Gerry and The Pacemakers and The Swinging Blue Jeans. They also come recommended by a host of celebrities, including none other than Sir Paul McCartney!

Not only were the lads really easy to deal with, they put on a really great show, knew exactly how to work a diverse audience with a mix of old and new stuff, and above all, got people dancing. Chris, Wedding at Rainford Village Hall in Merseyside, September 2017

The band's most popular line-ups are as a 3-piece, or as a 4-piece with a choice of either keyboards or guitar, and since all the musicians sing backing vocals, you're guaranteed a big sound with either choice! You can also book their acoustic duo for background music during your reception or dinner (please note: additional charges apply for start times earlier than 4pm).

Hudson are one of our most sought-after party and wedding bands in Liverpool, but they’re available UK wide and have performed as far north as Dundee and as far south as Plymouth. Strongly recommended!
