The Shakers Duo perform unique acoustic arrangements of pop, soul, rock and reggae songs and are the perfect accompaniment to any wedding or party. They have worked on many projects over the years with a list of 'name' acts and have supported some of the industry's best-known groups.

Their setlist includes pop favourites from across the decades by the likes of Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and The Beatles.

They looked and sounded great, perfectly playing well known hits from now and before that reached out to all generations! Nicholas, Corporate Event, Surrey

They have performed together at a number of prestigious venues including Catley Cross House, Kingly Court in Soho and Yaxley Hall.

Vocalist and leading lady Lara is a singer/songwriter who has worked on many projects with bands and songwriters for over 9 years. She has recently played support gigs with Pete Doherty, Status Quo and Jesse Wood.

Guitarist Dan was taught by Bryan Parker, co-writer of the no.1 sixties hit Concrete and Clay. He has since worked with Toby Baker (BB King, Eric Clapton), Nicole Russo (The Brand New Heavies) and Butch Thomas (Sting, Lenny Kravitz).

Emma, Wedding in London, March 2018

“Thank you guys so much for performing at my wedding last Saturday. You were absolutely unbelievable - better than we could have possibly dreamed! Your energy, positivity and beautiful music absolutely transformed our wedding party. You got people up on the dancefloor and left everyone in a wonderful mood. Thank you again!!!! If you are planning a wedding or a party and are looking for entertainment - I highly recommend Function Central. They have an excellent range of acts and musicians covering genres like classical music, jazz, acoustic and even steel drums! Their website is easy to use and gives you all the flexibility you need to choose a band or performer that matches your style and musical preference. The website even has demos and sample tracks so that you can hear the band. The team at Function Central are also incredibly flexible, helpful and easy to work with. I would use them again in a heartbeat!”

Aly & Mike, Wedding, November 2016

“The Shakers Duo were excellent and kept us entertained all night at our wedding. There was a lot of dancing! They were good at picking up on which songs would have the most people dancing and no one wanted them to leave when the night came to its end! Thank you!”

Jane, Wedding in London, May 2016

“The Shakers Duo were perfect for the our restaurant party, pleasantly adjusting their dynamics according to response. They turned up and needed little assistance in setting up. They looked and sounded great, perfectly playing well known hits from now and before that reached out to all generations. We would definitely book The Shakers Duo again and recommend them for all corporate parties and events.”
