The Echoes’ (previously Strange Fruit) finely-tuned set list features party anthems that everyone knows and loves, from the birth of rock’n’roll in the 1950s through to the biggest covers of the 2010s, with exciting musical pit stops in every decade in between!

The band are one of the leading wedding bands in Newcastle and the North East and their competitive starting price means they’re still affordable at venues as far away as The Midlands and Scotland.

In the last year alone they’ve played at some of the top wedding venues in the North of England, including: Eshott Hall, Belton Woods Hotel, Bamburgh Pavilion, Emirates Old Trafford, The Grange, Northside Farm, Healey Barn, The Discovery Museum, Doxford Barns, Arley Hall and Gardens, Capheaton, Whinstone House, Middleton Hall and Chester le Street Golf Club.

The Echoes were absolutely brilliant and one of the stand out highlights of our wedding celebration! Daniel, Wedding at Bamburgh Pavilion, Bamburgh

Aside from weddings, the band recently performed at an event for Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club, Christmas parties for Atom Bank, Mayborn and NDNA, and hotels and HM Forces events across the UK. They have also appeared at two Bestival festivals with The Klaxons, Elbow and Doves.

The Echoes run an originals side-project and as such have opened for some of the top signed acts in the UK, including Nizlopi, Turin Brakes, Fionn Regan and Wheatus and also opened for Sandi Thom's UK tour just last year. They were voted best unsigned band on the radio station XFM and also won Best North East Band in The BT Battle of the Bands.

The Echoes can also offer their own laptop DJ service – a handy way to avoid organising and accommodating a separate DJ. This service comes with a large song database as well as use of their mic for speeches and can cover before, between and after the band’s live sets.

“Echoes were fabulous and helped to make our wedding celebrations simply perfect. The music set was exactly what we wanted and was really well performed and got everyone up dancing! We were delighted that the guys were happy to perform our song ‘How sweet it is’ for our first dance. We would highly recommend Echoes. The band were so helpful and a great bunch of guys too. We requested a particular DJ set and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you all so much.”

Nikki and Jon, Wedding, Crook Hall & Gardens in Durham, August 2019

“Played a variety of songs which everyone loved!”

Rebecca, Wedding, Kirkley Hall in Ponleand, May 2019

“All dealings with the agency were straightforward both on the phone and with e-mails. The lads in "The Echoes" were very pleasant, easy to work with and obliging in learning a new tune for the bridal couple's first dance. From their first song they brought a great atmosphere to the evening and people dancing to every tune right to their final encore.”

Brian, Wedding, As You Like It in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, November 2018

“From the moment they started playing I was seriously impressed. They were so lovely to speak to and we received loads of great comments about them from guests. They were so helpful and friendly in the run up to our big day and put up with my emails which was really very much appreciated. I danced way more than I thought I would and I really enjoyed listening to them all night. Thank you!”

Rachel, Wedding, Cumbria, September 2018

“The Echoes were fantastic! Very flexible with our requirements and everyone who was there said that they were fantastic! Couldn’t stop people from dancing if we’d wanted to :)”

Emma, Wakefield Hockey Club’s Summer Splash Tournament, June 2018
