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.

Book within 7 days of your enquiry and get a laptop DJ service provided by the band for only £65 (normally £150).

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 all over the country, 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 acoustic duos in London. Their corporate clients include Google, The NHS, Oxfam, H&M and the Wimbledon Championships.

Everyone was up and dancing all night, we couldn't have wished for a more perfect band for our special day! Liam & Natacha, wedding at Old Luxters Barn, Henley on Thames

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!

I can not speak highly enough of them - thank you for the wonderful atmosphere you created and for helping out last minute.”

“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.

The style and range of music was ace and my goodness they grinned and smiled throughout. They really set the tone!! WE LOVED THEM!!!”

10

“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.”

10

“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.”

10

“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!!!”

10

“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!”

10

“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.”

10

“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.”

10

“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.”

10

“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.”

10

“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.”

10

“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!”

10

“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”

10

“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.”

10

“Two likeable guys with a great set list. Monthly residents here at Copa. Book them with confidence.”

10

“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!”

10

“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.”

10

“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.”
