The Misfits are made up of some serious talent: the lead singer has a five-album deal with Decca, they’ve played at festivals including Glastonbury and T in the Park and have toured Canada, Sweden and Cyprus!

The band perform for weddings, corporate events, parties and balls all over the UK, where their primary aim is always to keep the dancefloor full, right up until the last dance. They’re always happy to learn your first dance and their song list spans several decades, including artists from Nat King Cole and Chuck Berry to Bruno Mars and Jess Glynne.

Fantastic band, people were dancing all night! They even did a few songs ad hoc they didn't know when requested! True musicians! Caroline, Wedding at Meols Hall, Southport

In the UK they’ve played venues such as London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Liverpool's Echo Arena and the Hilton hotels in Manchester and London, with residencies in Manchester and Leeds. Their clients include the cast of Coronation Street, Sir Alex Ferguson and the Royal Variety Show after-party.

The band’s core line-up is a 5-piece, but you can build your own band right up to a 9-piece! Options include a funky brass section (recommended for the vintage soul and funk repertoire), and backing vocals for sparkling harmonies.

They also offer afternoon or early evening jazz sets (by either a duo or trio) for mellow background music before the party really gets started!

The Misfits are our one of our most frequently recommended wedding bands in Cheshire, and we are thrilled to be able to represent them on an exclusive basis.

“I have been to several weddings over the years and have seen many bands. Recently I was in the audience on Jools Hollands live music show and I can honestly say that the music I heard that night didn't come close to the sound of the 'The Misfits' playing at a good friend's wedding. Anyone looking for a fantastic live jazz/soul band then I would strongly recommend them.”

Everyone commented on how brilliant they were and our first dance was absolutely perfect (well, the music was anyway!!) - it was just as we'd imagined it and so fun. Thank you too for your patience when the timings didn't go quite according to plan. We realise that the band must play at weddings all the time so thank you for making us feel special - particularly by arranging the first dance music just for us.”

10

“The band were in touch in advance to go through everything to put my mind at rest and they arrived bang on time in the evening. At no point was I concerned, which is critical for a bride arranging a wedding! The range of songs were amazing and perfect for us, giving all of our guests songs they knew and wanted to dance to. They sung our first dance which was perfect and we had a lot of comments about how the band were amazing and made the day complete. The dance floor was packed from start to finish - thank you!”

10

“We just want to say a huge thank you to the Misfits for playing at our wedding this weekend, October 1st. We were absolutely blown away by their performance and did not want it to end! They played two incredible sets which had everyone dancing from start to finish. They were incredibly professional, so much so that even the venue staff commented on how friendly and easy going they were. We paid extra for the brass section which was the icing on the cake - they were worth every penny and more. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and would absolutely hire them again.”

10

“We would like to extend our deepest thanks to the Misfits who really brought our wedding reception to life.

I would highly recommend them.”

We would highly recommend The Misfits to anyone.”

10

“The Misfits were absolutely fantastic! Every single member was professional, polite and amazingly talented. The whole process was stress free and they were a pleasure to work with. All of our guests raved about them and we can't thank them enough for making our wedding even more special!”

“The Misfits played as a 7 piece for our wedding in Derbyshire at the end of November. They were superb, had everyone up on the dance floor for their whole set, we can't recommend they highly enough. Perfect for all occasions that needs quality live music from quality musicians.”

10

“I would like to say a huge thank you to every single one of you that played at our wedding yesterday. The dance floor remained full from the moment you began playing to the moment you stopped (following several encores!) You honestly made our night and the feedback from our guests has been outstanding we will all be highly recommending your very talented selves for future events!”

10

“Guys, thank you so much for playing at our wedding. WHAT A SOUND! We were absolutely bowled over. The lead vocals were mind-blowing, exquisite instrumentals (we were all gobsmacked with the bass and trumpet solos). You seriously helped to make our celebration very special indeed. Thanks!!”

10

“If we could give more than 10 out of 10 we would! The vocals were incredible. Every single one of the instrumentalists were fabulous, but the trumpeter and the bass player were stand-out remarkable. They were so so tight and so so fun to watch. The sound engineer went out of his way to help us in the morning to run our wedding band (thank you) and also created a fantastic sound for the band. All the amps were first rate quality sounding. Overall the sound was up there with the best acts we have ever heard. As musicians we are quite picky and we were not in the least bit disappointed. We were blown away with the quality of the individuals in the band and as a whole it was a true pleasure to listen to you! We and our guests loved dancing to your tracks! Thank you!”

10

“The Misfits were a fantastic band. They got set up with no fuss. Were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. But most importantly, insanely talented. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. They're brilliant!”

10

“The Misfits were absolutely fantastic. Totally professional from the word go. Responded to emails and telephone calls quickly and efficiently, kept in contact to make sure we were happy, even after they had been paid in advance. We had a site visit and the band made some recommendations and we discussed the type of music we wanted. They were flexible and recommended responding to the audience. How right they were! By a few tracks in, virtually everyone was dancing! Even people who I have never seen dance anywhere! We keep getting told how fantastic the band were. I can't recommend this band enough. You need a band? The Misfits are the way to go. No competition!”

10

“The Misfits were excellent in every aspect of their work. Their pre-party communication was clear and always very helpful. We discussed the music choices and they responded fantastically well. They arrived on time and did their set-up efficiently and tidily. They seem to have very much enjoyed being in our garden and eating the food we gave them, being cheerful and friendly throughout the pre-party time. This fresh, open and friendly attitude continued throughout their performance and whilst they cleared up afterward, they are nice people. As for their act on the night, they proved our choice dead right. They are all very good performers, and the sound they made when they have the brass section and their excellent female vocalist was terrific. The dance floor was full throughout all their sessions. Everyone at the party told us how much they had enjoyed the music!”

10

“Thanks for coming to play at Mum's surprise 60th she absolutely loved it.. (and so did I!!)x”

10

“A MASSIVE thank you for playing at my 21st a few weeks back, you were absolutely amazing and definitely made my party! I can't thank you enough!!”

10

“The duo in the day was fab, just enough chilled background music without been over powering and the band in the evening were great, fab tunes to make a perfect end to an amazing day. It was one wild party. Thank you”

10

“The Misfits were great at our wedding in June. Great music helped create a great atmosphere. Lovely guys too, highly recommend them.”

10

“Thank you so much for a fantastic evening that The Misfits provided for my daughter's wedding on the 11th April at Madeley Court Mill. The music was brilliant and I had so many enquiries from guests as to who you were as they enjoyed your music so much. You are a very talented group of musicians and can play such a range of music. It was truly fantastic and we had such a great time. I will recommend you to all of my friends. Thank you so very much.”
