Marcel & Matt's passion for music and entertainment is obvious from the first note. This vibrant, acoustic guitar and vocal duo pride themselves on their ability to entertain all ages, serving up Bob Marley and Bill Withers alongside the latest chart-toppers by Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and Adele.

Marcel and Matt have performed at a wide variety of distinguished venues across the South East and further afield, including The Haymarket Hotel, Newland Hall, Eight Members Club, Barnsley House, Hornington Manor and The Bishops Palace.

Marcel & Matt were quite simply brilliant. Extremely professional, relaxed and left us feeling at ease that they could do the job. Rachael, Corporate Event, Birmingham

For an even bigger sound you can choose to add a cajon (a box-shaped percussion instrument!) for that extra rhythmic vibe, as well as an incredible electric bass player. The duo also offer a laptop DJ set for before, between and after their live sets.

Marcel is also available as a 4-pce wedding and party band, Cinco Magic. Working exclusively with Function Central, they're one of our most bookable bands in the South East.

They played during our ceremony and at our drinks reception and so many of our guests commented about how good they were. Marcel's voice is amazing, and he was great to deal with.

His song choice and performance created such a good vibe and we cannot recommend him highly enough. Some of his covers were even better than the original artists! Had so many of our guests come up to me and say how wonderful the singer was and how I booked him so they could inquire for their own weddings.”

“Marcel and Matt were fantastic. We had a great chat with Marcel over the phone a couple of weeks before the wedding about the day and the music we liked and on the night they didn't disappoint. We had about 50 guests at the wedding and their acoustic set created a great atmosphere for those who got up and danced the night away and others who sat back and appreciated their funky repertoire. To top it off they played our requested first dance song which really made for a special moment. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a good selection of music performed by talented musicians.”

Thanks so much for making it such a memorable event!”

“Marcel & Matt were outstanding, we hired them for our office Christmas party and everyone had a blast. They really know how to work the crowd, building up the pace until everyone is up and dancing. Musically speaking they are excellent, I really liked their covers - they were so much better than the originals! People kept complimenting on the band, and they helped make our event memorable. Will definitely keep them in mind for future events, thank you guys!”

10

“They were Excellent...!! 5***** Acoustic Performers / Musicians. Marcel met with us at the venue prior to the function start time and discussed with us how we would like the event to run throughout the evening. Their choice of play list was a perfect eclectic mix for the wide span age range of our guests and they managed to give the whole evening a really great vibe, getting everyone up dancing. We would definitely recommend them and certainly would book them again in the future. Excellent value for money..!!!”

“Marcel & Matt played at our wedding in September 2016. We knew we wanted live music and what they delivered was more than I could have hoped for. We were super pleased! I was amazed at the quality and range that these guys could generate from just two guitars, a cajon (small drum) and vocals. They brought so much atmosphere to the wedding. As the groom I was probably supposed to be talking with guests, but I simply couldn't stop dancing. We received loads of positive compliments on the band from our guests, and the dancefloor was busy all night. These guys put everything into their two sets. Marcel & Matt's music was one big ingredient of a very special day, and I recommend you add them to your celebration.”

10

“The act were absolutely brilliant, they played great music and I can not recommend them enough. Spectacular!! The DJ service that they also provided was brilliant too - got the whole room dancing!”

10

“Both myself and my husband were delighted with the band! They arrived early and set up and not only looked the part but played beautifully! All of our guests commented on how good they were. I only wish I got to hear more from them myself as we were so busy with the photographer! They made our ceremony so special learning and playing one of our favourite John Legend songs and can not thank them enough! We have already recommended to friends for future events.”

10

“We were hugely satisfied with Marcel and Matt. From a practical point of view they were well organised. Marcel contacted me in plenty of time to discuss the evening including checking the dress code and any special requests. They were on time, quick to set up, professional and kept to time. The show itself was super. Marcel quickly built up a great rapport with the audience for a thoroughly enjoyable evening of entertainment. Thank you to Marcel and Matt for making my daughter's birthday a huge success, including putting in the effort to practice the two special request songs that weren't on your play list!”

10

“I'm writing to say a big thanks to you both for facilitating what truly was a last minute booking. All ended up running smoothly and we were delighted with Marcel and Matt. Many thanks!”

10

“Thanks for making my daughter's 18th a huge success on the 30th April. I have had so many comments from family and friends since on how great you were. Thanks also for the Mumford and Sons and Ben Howard special requests... hugely appreciated!”

10

“Marcel & Matt were quite simply brilliant. Extremely professional, relaxed and left us feeling at ease that they could do the job. Although they were really there for background music, they created an atmosphere that worked perfectly. As the event was a client networking event, all our guests' main priority was to talk to each other, but a large number of guests commented on how great they were.”

10

“They turned up early and set up with little fuss. They started at the agreed time and played a very enjoyable set which added to the ambiance of the evening.”

10

“What a brilliant night - these guys were fantastic and so perfect for our party. Will defiantly book them again.”
