Slip on your sunglasses, as here come the Aviators, a London function band with a premium client list, exciting song list and a charismatic lead vocalist who will have guests up and dancing within moments!

With an array of distinguished clients, from Richard Branson to the Bank of Scotland, The Aviators are one of our most popular London covers bands.

The Aviators were the best wedding band we could have hoped for. Super professional and helpful but more importantly incredibly fun and dynamic! Allan & Ruth, Wedding, Windsor

The band play covers through the decades with an emphasis on pop, soul, Motown and reggae, from Marvin Gaye to Madcon, via Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.

The band are happy for you to tailor your set by decade or genre to suit your event – they can also offer dedicated jazz, swing or Jewish simcha sets!

The Aviators also offer a set of jazz standards and can be hired with a 2-4 piece brass section, and even additional vocalists and percussionists. Flexible and approachable, they’ll do whatever it takes to make your party a success!

The band also offer their own in-house laptop DJ service, offering mixed songs and requests between, during and after their band sets, for a nominal fee. This saves on the additional space, hassle and cost of hiring in a separate DJ and PA system.

Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“I found communicating via Function Central very helpful. They were always prompt at replying. The Aviators were insane. They were absolutely superb from start to finish. They were so engaging and the dance floor was always full when they were performing. Despite the extreme temperature, they had so much energy and enthusiasm. They were also very flexible, adapting to the changing schedule on the night. I cannot recommend them highly enough. So many guests were raving about how good they were. Playing music for the limbo was a particular highlight. I was very sad when it had to come to an end.”

Josie and Joe, Wedding, Riverhill Himalayan Gardens, June 2019

“I just wanted to thank you all for playing at our wedding. We all thought you were really fantastic and you really made our wedding! Thank you so much once again.”

Nicky, Wedding, September 2018

“Thank you so much for your amazing performance! Everyone has said how amazing you were - if you ever require a reference I would be more than happy to give you a glowing report!”

Nabila, Corporate Event, July 2018

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for your fantastic performance. It was truly exceptional and everyone said how the band were the highlight of the day. I will recommend you far and wide - thanks so much again.”

Richard, Wedding, May 2018

“Thanks again for a such a great night we really enjoyed ourselves and so did all of our guests. Everyone I've spoken to has said what an amazing band you are and how great it was having a band rather than just a DJ. Thanks for making our night!”

Michelle, Jewish Wedding, May 2018

“A huge, huge thank you for making our reception such a great success! Everyone has been saying how fantastic the band were - the best they've ever come across! I'm now thinking of planning another party just so I can book you guys again! Thank you so much for letting my husband play the drums with you, it was such a highlight and he absolutely loved it.”

Harriet, Wedding, March 2018

“The band were great! We had a great day and the feedback from everyone was fantastic.”

Mike, Corporate Festival at Abingdon Science Park in Oxfordshire, July 2017

“The Aviators were the best wedding band we could have hoped for. Super professional and helpful but more importantly incredibly fun and dynamic - they played our first dance song wonderfully and kept the dancefloor full until it was time to go home. They asked if we had any particular favourites from their repertoire in advance and incorporated all of these into their set, playing incredible medleys and getting everyone involved. The six-piece sound was great, the microphone was passed around, even the music in between sets was on point - I really couldn't recommend them highly enough.”

Allan & Ruth, Wedding in Windsor, August 2016

“I would just like to say, The Aviators were absolutely incredible! They turned up and got themselves unpacked and plugged in ready to go without any hassle and the guests barely noticed them. Didn't need any help, just got on with it. They played our first song Andy Williams 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You', played this incredibly well and it was a lovely moment. Then they kicked into party mode and didn't stop till past midnight! They were getting everyone involved, had people dancing from a very young baby to all the oldies, the range of music was perfect, appealed to everyone! Passed the microphone around and everyone felt involved, constantly a big group of people dancing right the way through the night. I can't thank them enough, absolutely incredible!! Highly recommend to anyone who wants a funky energetic and very friendly band for their wedding or any other occasion for that matter.”

Christian & Alex, Wedding in Hertfordshire, May 2015

“As soon as The Aviators came on, absolutely everyone fell for them! Our first dance was so beautifully played and we are so glad we asked the guys to play 'Come Fly with Me'. The singers totally stole the show and we are already thinking about booking you again in the future. Thank you so much!”

Katya & Ryan, Wedding in Kent, September 2014

“We couldn't have been more impressed with the performance your gave at our wedding. Everyone had such a great time and the dance floor was full all night! The feedback from our guests has been excellent and we are now looking for an excuse to book you again!”

Sharon & John, Wedding in Hampshire, August 2013

“Thank you so much to you and your band for Friday night you went down an absolute storm once again! Really looking forward to working with you again at some point in the future!”

Gene, Corporate Event, June 2012
