The band's accomplished singers alternate lead vocals and share tight harmonies to provide a rich vocal sound, with piano/keyboards, electric and acoustic guitars helping to recreate a wide range of crowd-pleasing floor-fillers.

The band have recently appeared on BBC Radio Merseyside, and are one of our leading wedding bands in Liverpool. They have vast experience playing at weddings, with previous venues including The V&A Marriott, Melling Tithebarn, The Sefton, Cuddystone Hall, Great John Street Hotel and Prestwold Hall.

The band was fantastic with a great range of songs for all to enjoy. They got everybody up dancing and the atmosphere was amazing! Anna, Wedding at Arley Arboretum, Bewdley

They’ve also played at company Christmas parties for BCFA, Actavis and BDP as well as private events of all shapes and sizes, both in their local area and far beyond.

Members of The Different Lights have performed in leading venues all over the UK and Europe supporting the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, The Libertines, The Buzzocks and even Tony Christie!

The band can also provide acoustic background options in varying line-ups, and are comfortable delivering a Rat Pack style piano and vocal set, through to more classic pop, soul and rock in a stripped back, “Live Lounge” fashion. They can also offer their own laptop DJ service with a choice of over 15,000 tunes, saving you on the cost, space and hassle of organising a separate DJ. Highly recommended!

“The Different Lights were simply amazing! The booking process was so simple, the band were just genuine nice guys and amazing performers! We couldn't of asked for a better band to perform on our wedding day!”

Mark & Stacey, Wedding, The Village Hotel in Bury, August 2019

“Having never booked a live act before we were apprehensive but wow, it's difficult to find the words to express how good these guys were. From first phone call to the end they were perfect. Our first dance was a dream and they did it to perfection. The dancefloor was permanently full and everyone commented on how good they were. I cannot wait to help someone else organise an event as the different lights will be top of the list. Cannot thank them enough!”

Lynda, Wedding, Bella Vista in Rochdale, August 2019

“It's been a couple of months since the wedding and people are still saying to me how good the band were. The Different Lights were absolutely incredible. They were easy to talk to prior to the event discussing the venue, timings, types of songs to play and they even went and learnt a new song for the first dance. They arrived on time and set up very quickly. All of the band were very approachable and didn't mind at the fact that there was only a small space to perform and dance due to the size of the venue. When they started playing, every song was played to perfection. They joined in with the banter of the guests encouraging people to dance. Every song was well picked, well suited and excellently performed. The dance floor was completely full all night resorting to certain people having to dance on tables to find space. All in all, I would highly recommend The Different Lights to anyone wanting a night full of incredible music and fun filled dance floors.”

Laura & Mark, Wedding, Rochdale in Greater Manchester, June 2019

“They were excellent at coordinating with us. The band even learned our first dance which was appreciated, even though we were not good enough to actually dance to it!”

Robert & Clare, Wedding at St Helens Town Hall, October 2018

“The Different Lights were absolutely spectacular. They arrived early to set up and were really well presented. Really lively band and a lovely bunch of guys! All the songs they performed had the guests and us dancing all night! Such good energy! Thank you so much.”

Hannah, Wedding, The Glass House in Blackpool, June 2019

“This band were totally amazing! We found them online to play our wedding in Anglesey which we organised from Northern Ireland. We were a little nervous as we had never seen them live. They were brilliant and totally made the final part of our wedding day. Everyone was up dancing even family members who have never normally leave their seat! Highly recommended! Thanks lads!”

Michelle, Wedding, Anglesey, March 2019

“This band is amazing! We booked them for our wedding and they were fantastic, all of our guests commented how great they were. They were also a really friendly genuine bunch. If you’re looking to book a band for your wedding we would definitely recommend. Thanks guys xx”

Sarah, Wedding, September 2018

“The Different Lights were great. The quality of their performance was excellent and they were very friendly too.”

Jamie, Wedding, September 2018

“Booked for daughter Charlotte's wedding at Iscoyd Park North Wales and all were blown away by these guys. Event was 4th August 2018. Pleasantly surprised by addition of a female member which just added to the all round excellence of the band. All songs performed brilliantly and packed out the dance floor until the last tune. Calls for one more song worked twice - would not hesitate to book this band again. Nice bunch of people too who clearly like playing and had a good time as well.”

Roy, Wedding, Iscoyd Park in North Wales, August 2018

“The band were very professional In preparing requirements and playlist before the event and totally smashed it on the night. Unexpectedly there was a female vocalist on the night as well as the four piece and this went down a storm she has a great voice. Song renditions were all great and the band very tight. They responded to calls for one more song from a very excited dance floor twice. Highly recommended.”

Charlotte & Danny, Wedding at Iscoyd Park in North Wales, August 2018

“We hired The Different Lights Band after seeing them at another wedding a few years ago. From booking to the actual day the communication from Function Central and the band was fantastic. We had a phone call from the band leader a few weeks before and he instantly understood our taste in music and what songs would be perfect for getting us and our guests dancing all night long. A special thank you for singing our first dance song Noel Gallagher's "If I had a gun", this version was just perfect and will be forever so special to us. Thank you so much lots of love Luke and Danielle.”

Danielle & Luke, Wedding, Carden Park in Cheshire, July 2018

“I had the privilege of watching this amazing band at the finale of the Bloomfield Club beer and music festival they where fantastic and everyone who was there loved them and asking when they are back at our club? Very soon I hope.”

John, Festival, The Bloomfield Club in Blackpool, May 2018

“This band were incredible!!!! I had them to play at my wedding in April in north wales, they were so easy to speak to and even performed our requested first dance, everyone has said how amazing they were and the dance floor was filled every time they performed! Thank you so much guys and for anyone pondering it don’t just book!! You will not regret this top class band.”

Daniella, Wedding, North Wales, April 2018

“Met the the lads tonight while working at an event in Newark, you won't meet a more genuine and down to earth bunch of guys! Extremely talented with a brilliant set-list, mixture of the la's, the strokes, stereophonics, the beatles and a shout out for me in Mr Brightside! Superb band and lads, would listen to them any night of the week and hopefully get to see them again at somepoint!”

Phil, Private Event in Newark, March 2018

“My now wife and I booked The Different Lights to play at our wedding and they were amazing from start to finish. They played a huge part in making it the best day of our lives! The songs were an eclectic mix ranging from Deacon Blue, Van Morrison to The White Stripes and Daft Punk but they all had two things in common- they were all incredibly well performed and they all got people up on their feet dancing and singing along from the first dance right up until the end of the night. We also opted for a keyboard acoustic set during our drinks reception immediately after the ceremony which again added so much to proceedings- people were singing along before they had even sat down for dinner! They were utterly professional, had an amazing ability to start (and sustain!) the party and our friends are still raving about them! Do yourselves a favour and get them booked!”

Jack, Wedding, February 2018

“The Different Lights were a really great band who the majority of attendees enjoyed. The first two sets were fabulous and everyone was up dancing. The third set I don't feel was to everyone's taste as the music was a little heavy for the majority of the ageing guests however this should not take away from how fantastic the band were on the night. I think on reflection I should have been more specific about the playlist required in advance. The front man was fab and was very friendly and supportive. Overall we rated them highly as did the hotel staff who thought they were excellent.”

Helen, Charity Ball at The Park Royal Hotel in Warrington, December 2017

“Thank you for an amazing night. The band were so easy to work with and went with everything we wanted. The band leader was fantastic and easy to contact! All of our guests had a fantastic night and this was largely due to the band. We couldn't recommend you enough. Thanks so much for making our party so much fun.”

Emma, Wedding at The Hallmark Hotel in Stockport, November 2017

“The service was great from start to finish and the band were really down to earth and a great addition to our awards evening!”

Alun, BRC Awards at The Principal Hotel in Manchester, November 2017

“The Different Lights are one of the best live acts we have heard! They were absolutely amazing, every guest said how great they were and they played songs that kept the crowd going all night.”

Anthony & Fiona, Wedding at Shrigley Hall Hotel in Cheshire, October 2017

“Fantastic performance and the audience were on their feet almost ALL night!!!”

Matthew, Wedding at Packington Moor in Staffordshire, October 2017
