The Kingpins are a sensational, young and energetic 4-piece party band featuring superb female vocals.

The band have a wide repertoire which covers plenty of dancefloor hits, starting with a selection from current charts and ranging back through some of the biggest hits of the 70s, 80s and 90s. Expect a heady mix of soul, Motown, disco, indie and classic rock and pop.

The band are made up of four extremely talented and experienced musicians. This band of professionals have between them performed at some of biggest festivals and some of the greatest venues in the UK, including The Roundhouse, Rock In the Park, Glastonbury and more.

They’ve also performed at both Manchester City and Manchester United Football Clubs. They’ve played on international tours and performed with famous artists including Paloma Faith, The Script, James Morrison, Craig David and Sandi Thom, and they’ve done lots of radio and TV work too.

You were superb and doubtless have a sparkling future. Many thanks for making the night go so very well. You and your group made all the difference. Stephen, Charity Event, Manchester

The Kingpins are usually booked as a 4-piece wedding band but for larger events can add a keyboard player and also a full brass section. In addition, they offer lower-key musical options in the afternoon before the main band set. Lead singer Maria can perform a laid back solo jazz and blues set, or a duo with the band’s guitarist.

For the duo sets, the pair can perform with a variety of different instruments including acoustic guitar, electric guitar and percussion instruments for a varied and lively performance, or they can keep things simple and acoustic. Finally, for further evening entertainment, the band can add a professional DJ service with additional lighting. (For smaller or afternoon events, Maria is also bookable separately as a solo singer.)

Popular for weddings and private parties, The Kingpins are also an excellent choice for corporate events. Previous clients include The Roundhouse, The Trafford Centre, the BBC, the Sunday Times, Rock FM, Hilton Hotels, Manchester Evening News, Manchester United, Manchester City, the Lowry Theatre, the Lowry Hotel, Armarni and Fiat Europe.
