One of the best live party bands around, The Insiders make a great star attraction for any event, and specialise in spicing up your whole day with live music!

Book within 7 days of your enquiry and get a laptop DJ set performed by the band at half price (£60.00, worth £130.00).

Years of experience playing at the weddings, corporate events and parties means they know exactly what works and when.

They can provide an extremely cool acoustic set as the backdrop to your ceremony, wedding photos or drinks reception (see The Insiders duo), a raucous rock’n’roll extravaganza for your evening entertainment, or both.

What can I say? They were fantastic!! Everybody at our wedding reception was mesmerised by the talent these boys have! Gareth, Wedding, Worcestershire

They can also add another dimension to their sound with a female vocal, and they can provide all background and DJ music (with lighting and full PA) - and are happy to include your special requests for any type of music or for specific songs (with at least 4 weeks' notice, please).

The band's song list spans The Beatles, Elvis and Stevie Wonder through to Snow Patrol, Jessie J, and the Kings Of Leon, and they're happy to tailor their set to suit your personal tastes.

Whatever your requirements, they’ll take the hassle out of organising your music, so that you can concentrate on having fun!

Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.


“Everything ran smoothly - the band were in touch before the event, arrived early and were excellent.”


“I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you and the band for a great night. We wanted a celebration to remember, where everyone across the generations present would enjoy themselves - and you really delivered! Your musical talent was impressive, and you picked a great playlist. Thanks again for making what one of our guests has decided was “The Wedding of The Year”. In your face Harry and Meghan! Thanks again and best of luck for the future!”


“The band were a really nice bunch of guys who played two great sets. Great musicians who really got the party going and even did a couple of encores at the end. A first class act.”


“We had loads of comments from guests saying how good you were, and asking how we found you. We had an awesome day, and the evening music was such a big part of it.”


“The band were absolutely fantastic! They sounded great and had us and our guests dancing all night. The first dance song sounded amazing and got our evening off to a great start. They were really professional from first contact, arrived in plenty of time to set-up, and made the logistical side of things on the day really easy. They were also lovely guys and a pleasure to deal with, which is exactly what we wanted as it contributed towards the fun and friendly atmosphere of the day.”


“Thanks for playing a major part in making our wedding so special and ensuring our guests went home having really enjoyed themselves. You guys were top notch and I will recommend you to anyone that asks. I can't thank you enough.”


“The band made the party. I couldn't recommend highly enough just how good they were. Thank you so much!”


“We loved your tunes in the evening - it was great to see so many people on the dancefloor enjoying themselves. Thanks so much for everything - you all made our day utterly brilliant. We hope you had a great time too. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band. Here's hoping for a cracking summer!”


“You were fantastic, many thanks!”


“Made my evening. Perfect!”


“Many thanks to The Insiders for making our wedding reception special. The playlist was fantastic!”


“So many of our guests were up dancing. Massive thanks!”


“You were absolute stars throughout! Brilliant communication and we loved your music, thank you so much.”


“We couldn't have wished for a better band, friendly, good communication and most importantly sound great. Our guests loved them and couldn't praise them enough, they helped make our day perfect. Would book them again without hesitation.”


“What an amazing set and a truly talented band!”


“What can I say? They were fantastic!! Everybody at our wedding reception was mesmerized by the talent these boys have.”


“The Insiders were an essential part of a fantastic day for us.”


“These guys are fantastic. Everyone loved them!!”


“The Insiders played an amazing set and everyone had a fabulous time!”


“The Insiders were absolutely brilliant at our wedding. The set list was very diverse and they played excellently!”


“The band made our day. Two of them played an afternoon acoustic set at our reception, and later that evening we had the full band. Top drawer! Lots of people asked for their details afterwards, so I knew I'd made the right choice. Thanks again for making our day more special!”


“Just wanted to say a huge big thank you for making my party such a success! Everyone was asking where we found you and compliments have been flowing ever since. I felt we needed to thank you and the band personally. It really was a special evening and would not have been the same without such great music! Hope we have the occasion to book you again.”


“The band were brilliant. They played everything from The Stones to Kings Of Leon, and considering we are out in the sticks a little, the place was packed all night. We all had a great New Year's Eve and they even did us a Happy Birthday for one of the customers and Old Lang Syne to see in 2012! I've since had customers asking when they are returning because they were that good, and I have booked them again for this year!”


“I orginally booked the duo after watching them at The Glasshouse in Sandbach, but wanted the 4 piece after realising my party was going to be bigger. They were fantastic and played both acoustic and band music. My friends and family that came to the party loved it and I'm sure they will get repeat bookings after this as they were really good.”
