The Parma Violets are one of our first-call Welsh bands: a fantastic 4-piece with male and female lead vocals playing classic rock & soul to contemporary pop & RnB.

Book within 7 days of your enquiry and get a FREE laptop DJ service provided by the band (worth £150).

The band's powerful frontline of both male and female lead vocals (with alternating harmonies) allows them to cater to a wider range of tastes and ages than most, and their dynamic, lively performances have been filling dance-floors throughout Wales, the South West, the West Midlands and beyond for several years.

A tight unit of dedicated and versatile musicians, they're able to turn themselves from rock to jazz in an instant. The band met whilst studying at the Royal College Of Music And Drama in Wales, and are brimming with live performance experience; aside from radio, television, tours and session work for signed artists, they've now played 100s of private events for an ever-expanding list of satisfied agents, promoters, brides and grooms, as one of the leading function and wedding bands in Wales.

The best wedding band I have ever heard and I have heard a lot. Would book for any other event I have and would recommend to all my friends! Derek, Wedding, Devon

Always smartly-dressed, professional, fun and flexible, the band work hard to cater for the bride and groom's every need. Every event is given their full attention to detail and enthusiasm; the band interact with their audience and win crowds over every time. They can supplement their 4-piece line-up with full brass section, and can also offer an acoustic duo (two guitars and two harmony vocals) for afternoon entertainment. Finally, they can offer an exclusive set of One Hit Wonders - playing songs by artists who have only ever had one hit!
