One of our most in-demand rock & pop duos, The Heartbeats have sung, strummed and drummed their way through more than 150 weddings, corporate parties and charity events for Function Central over the last three years – they never fail to raise the roof.

Their repertoire is stacked with upbeat hits that everyone loves by artists such as Kings Of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Ed Sheeran. Their unique instrumentation (cajon drum, vocals and guitar) is a perfect set-up for clients who need enough of a beat to get people dancing yet may not have the space or budget for a large band.

Stunning vocals and guitar wizardry, their take on some of the most popular songs ever written are pure class. Lee, Promotor, Oxford

When they're not performing at private events, The Heartbeats write and perform with top producers and labels representing household names such as Taio Cruz and Girls Aloud.

The duo offer add-ons such as a female vocalist for extra harmonies, or drums and bass (replacing their cajon) to create a bigger sound at larger-scale parties.

The Heartbeats are professional, well-presented and are more than happy to tailor performance details and dress code to your requirements. Be sure to let them know if you have any song requests, they want their performance to be perfect for your event!

“We were so impressed by The Heartbeats! All of our guests raved about them and they were very friendly and professional. For two people they make quite an impact. They made our wedding extra special. I'd definitely recommend these guys!”

Liz, Wedding, June 2019

“The Heartbeats were excellent - very professional, great contact before the event and the perfect accompaniment to our Christmas meal.”

Katie, Christmas Party at Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester, December 2017

“The Heartbeats were a really fantastic act and made the evening reception at our wedding great fun! They were great at communicating beforehand and learnt a song that we requested. They had everyone up on the dance floor, and all of our guests have been saying to us how much they loved their style of playing and the songs that they chose!”

Louise, Wedding in Oxford, October 2016

“We could not have been happier with The Heartbeats, so over the moon with them. The duo were quite simply perfect for the evening of our special day. The guy is an incredibly talented singer, sang and performed our chosen 'first dance' song perfectly in his own style, and all this aside, the duo were simply genuinely nice guys to have join us for our day, and all the guests agreed! Faultless. Cannot recommend them enough, and will hope to book them in the future!”

Gary, Wedding in Kent, September 2016

“Couldn't have been more happy with the Heartbeats for our event! We had a festival style wedding and they fitted the theme perfectly. They contacted me a couple of weeks prior to the wedding to discuss songs and the finer details. On the night, their sets were brilliant. We had loads of comments from our guests saying how good they were! Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone!”

Tanya, Wedding at Manor Farm in Broadway, June 2017
