Evoking true nostalgia for the counterculture era, The Debonairs are a lively sixties tribute band who can summon up to six hours worth of material, including any first dance or special request.

The band’s basic line-up is a 3-piece, but they now perform mostly as a 4-piece with the addition of lead guitar. They can add a brass section for a bigger sound, and can also provide an acoustic duo option for mellower events and additional afternoon sets.

The Debonairs have played at corporate events, fundraising events and parties throughout Britain and Europe. Recent highlights include the Cannonball 8000 event in Zagreb, a society wedding in Paris and backing X Factor winner Brenda Edwards at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

The entire wedding party were rocking on the dance floor from the moment the very first note was played. They were a complete and utter triumph! Stella Brooks, Wedding, Chelmsford, Essex

The band’s singer has toured Germany and Denmark with the legendary Tony Sheridan, whom the Beatles used to back in Hamburg in the sixties.

Their guitarist had chart success in his native Australia before joining various Beatles tribute bands, whilst their drummer spends his time away from the Debonairs touring with ex-members of the Buzzcocks, and has supported David Gray. Bassist Nick has co-written songs for Martina Topley-Bird and other artists, and toured with the Bootleg Beatles.

Take a trip back in time to the Summer Of Love, with one of the most authentic and accomplished 60s tribute bands in the UK.

Lulu not included!

“The Debonairs, top professional rock-'n'-roll band. The band played a great selection of well known songs to make a great party. Last minute requests were no problem even playing tunes they had never played before. This band Rock! Certainly made our party.”

10

“Absolutely fantastic - they arrived in plenty of time and set up with no fuss. They had the dance floor full all night and were a genuinely lovely bunch of lads. Would not hesitate to recommend to others - five stars all the way!”

“The Debonairs were brilliant. Two hours of great music that had everyone at the party up and dancing. The band were professional, fun and helped us to ensure that everyone had an unforgettable evening. 100% recommended.”

“The Debonaires were brilliant - they judged the mood of the party perfectly and got the guests dancing hard - exactly what we had hoped for!”

10

“We were very satisfied with the band and all our guests were too. They were very receptive to any requests and paced their set well!”

10

“We booked The Debonairs for our 50th wedding anniversary party (attended by just over 100 people) as we wanted not only primarily a 60s band but also a band who would cater for all ages from young teenagers to 70+ age group so asked for a good mix of classics to keep the dance floor full. They contacted me a couple of weeks before the night to check if we had any special requests for music. The band arrived at the time they said they would and set up quickly with a minimum of fuss, playing background music until their start time. When they began playing their talent and professionalism was obvious. The mix of music for both of their sets was absolutely spot on and since the night we have had nothing but compliments about the band from people of all ages who were at the party. We can't praise this band highly enough so would absolutely recommend them for any function.”

10

“The act were exactly what we were looking for! They were punctual yet laid back, looked great, and you could tell that they were a professional band with lots of experience.”

“The feedback from the ball has been great and everyone had the best time! That is so much down to the entertainment, you were just brilliant!!”

“The Debonairs were very well received by our guests and interacted well with them. A nice bunch of guys who sang/played very well.”

10

“Thank you for the absolutely brilliant and professional appearance that you made at my 70th birthday party. The music was absolutely right and just what I wanted and as you saw people were dancing from the very first number. Personally, I don't need a drink to make me dance and if I like the music I will be on the dance floor, which I most certainly was. I had an absolutely brilliant evening and one which I will remember for the rest of my life. To be celebrating in such a wonderful venue with my friends and family with good music and wonderful food, what more could anyone want. Thank you all for everything, I am so glad I booked you and I wish you well in the future. It was very nice meeting you all and I hope you enjoyed yourselves.”

“The Debonairs were absolutely fantastic. The whole evening was a well balanced mix of music that enabled everybody to dance. Feedback from delegates - superb group must have them again.”

10

“We loved the Debonairs - we received lots of compliments about the group's playing, and really enjoyed their playlist!!”

10

“The Debonairs were exactly the type of band we were after for our wedding. They were very receptive to playing our requests and played a good variation of the type of songs we were after. We received great feedback from our guests on how much they enjoyed the band. Thoroughly recommended!”

10

“We booked the Debonairs as a three piece band for my 50th birthday party. I had read their reviews and details on the Function Central website and thought that they would be the kind of act I wanted. I love the music of the 60s and their playlist covered all the songs I like. I was so happy with their performance and the band members led by The Debonairs were all so friendly. They interacted straight away with the guests and proved to be the hit of the party. Everyone had a great time dancing to their music and I would recommend them highly .”

10

“We both agreed that The Debonairs helped to make it such a special day for us both. Having spoken to the singer over the phone in the weeks leading up to the wedding and with him agreeing for them to perform the song for our first dance they were fantastic throughout. They were very accommodating to our needs (as much 60s music as possible) and their laid back yet professional attitude suited us and the occasion perfectly. They had a great rapport with our guest and mixed requests with a well chosen set list. From their first song to the last they were brilliant. We just hope that they enjoyed playing, as much as we enjoyed having them play at our wedding, they were awesome and a significant highlight for us. One we will never forget.”

10

“I particularly love the Beatles so I booked The Debonairs. I saw they had various songs from the Beatles in their repertoire and also many other great songs from the 60s. They arrived on time and were very professional. They were really friendly and played great songs that everyone enjoyed. I cannot thank The Debonairs enough to have played at my wedding and make my day a very big and special day! Everyone still comments how they enjoyed the wedding and The Debonairs were a great part of it.”

10

“Just wanted to let you know that The Debonairs were fantastic on Friday night. All the feedback I have received from my party goers has been extremely positive and they were without a doubt one of the highlights of the evening. Please pass on my thanks to the band. Many thanks for your assistance.”

10

“We spent a long time choosing our band in the lead-up to our Big Day, as it felt for us that it would make or break the evening reception and we wanted everyone to have fun and let their hair down (especially the bride!) We were sooooo impressed by The Debonairs and have had no end of compliments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed the music and dancing. Everyone was on their feet, young and old, because the 60s music was pitched just perfectly. The band played homage to all the greats, but also put their own stamp on them and by the time we were conga-ing round the bar, I knew we'd made the right choice. Also we were really touched they learnt our first dance especially and played it again at the end to cap a perfect day. Thanks so much!!”

10

“The band set up fast and were really excellent: we had a memorable evening. The music and volume were just right for our guests who thoroughly enjoyed a lot of old favorites. As to your agency's service, I had some concern initially booking off a website which was completely unknown to me but this was soon dispelled and I can't think of how it could have been improved. If the need arises I will certainly use your agency and The Debonairs again. I will ask my wife if she can find any photos which might interest you and ask her to forward them to you.”

10

“Just wanted to let you know that The Debonairs did a great job for my birthday party on Sunday last. They sounded superb and were a hit with everyone. We particularly liked the fact that they included the audience by doing requests. Please pass on my thanks again to the Boys. If you would like to use this as a reference, that would be fine. Thanks for your help with this booking”

10

“I just wanted to say The Debonairs, who played at Jennifer and Jim's wedding on the 31st July 2009 at Pontlands Park Hotel were absolutely terrific. The entire wedding party were rocking on the dance floor from the moment the very first note was played. They were a complete and utter triumph and made the entire occasion very special indeed, would you please pass on my thanks to them and I wish them every success in the future. They are not only superb entertainment they are a great bunch of guys.”

10

“I just wanted to drop you a short note to thank you and the rest of the band for the fantastic performance on Saturday night, you guys really did make the evening. I know the conditions in the hall with regard to the temperature were not great but to play hit after hit for most of the evening was superb. I have had so many people comment on what a great time they had, especially being able to dance to such great music, one lady is now looking forward to my 50th! It really was important for me to have a memorable Birthday this year, and you guys really did not let me down, thank you all so much, not only for your true professionalism as musicians and the quality and quantity of your repertoire, but for being such nice guys and playing guests requests, and even allowing one of them to sing! Thank you all once again.”

10

“Just to let you know that our party went very well on Friday and The Debonairs were an absolute success! They had people dancing from the very first song and didn't actually pack up until 12.45am, well beyond their contracted time. Everyone I've spoken to have said what a great band they were and really helped towards making the evening a success. Please pass my thanks to them from me and all the guests at FDM! I hope that we can use your company again.”

10

“Just wanted to say, The Debonairs played for us, the guys are amazing!! Fantastic music, fantastic guys! Thank you so very much, our evening was brilliant, the guests loved them, we didn't stop dancing. Thanks for helping make our day so perfect! Good Luck guys.”

10

“Hope this finds you well and got home safely after Friday night. Thank you to you and the band for being as great as ever, you're so easy to work with and everyone just loves you. Take it easy and hope to see you again soon.”

10

“The atmosphere was fantastic thanks to you four. A most fabulous performance.”

“Many thanks for your email. Brenda enjoyed performing with you, you were all very sweet and supportive to her. She has a band already that she currently performs with but if for any reason there is need to use another one I will of course be in touch. With all best wishes, Tim.”
