We were so pleased with the band - their repertoire was huge and they had a packed dance floor from the moment they started up! Hannah, Wedding, Warwickshire

The band aren’t short on professional credentials and have many years of experience behind them, with members having played with the likes of Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, UB40 and Radio 1 favourites, The 1975. They are also regulars on the festival and university circuits.

The band are able to offer a complete day package with the option of an acoustic set by their duo (see The Clementines), ideal for ceremonies and drinks receptions.

They also offer a full DJ service to keep you going until the wee hours (additional charges may apply depending on how wee.) Both options are heavily discounted when booked alongside the band.

The Shenanigans work exclusively with Function Central as their go-to party and wedding band in the East Midlands. If you want a full dancefloor then this is the band for you!

Caroline, Wedding at Parkside House Hotel in Milton Keynes, September 2017

“Arrived early and set up with no-fuss. The band were really laid back and approachable and their performance was excellent. The lead singer has a great voice and the band were a tight knit outfit. Played a great mix of songs and I would highly recommend!”

Daniel, Wedding at Wootton Park in Henley-in-Arden, May 2017

“The Shenanigans performed at our wedding with impeccable professionalism. They arrived and set up without any stress to the bride or groom and were ready to go as soon as the evening event began. One of the band introduced himself to me and payment was made then the fun began! All the music was bouncy and lively (including the interval music) and all of the guests were very impressed with their performance. Big thanks to the band!”

Andy, Wedding at The West Mill in Derby, November 2017

The dance floor was packed all night and everyone commented how good they were, so much so a friend booked them for her birthday and they were amazing again. Very professional and a great mix of music to suite all ages. I would highly recommend to everyone and would love to have another reason to book them again, fabulous!”

Mandy, Birthday Party in Nottingham, May 2017

“Service from Function Central and The Shenanigans were perfect. Really talented, really good fun and they made my dad relive his youth - he felt like a rock star. Thanks so much! What a fantastic band that made my dad's night really special. They were really professional and courteous. Fabulous varied music to suit all. The family and guests were all really impressed. The female vocalist was out of this world. Loved the band's sense of humour and it was great to see them enjoying it too. Thank you so much, dad hasn't stopped talking about it. Wow.”

Theresa, Private Party in Solihull, March 2016

“We were delighted with The Shenanigans - we picked them as we liked their sound and they had a good selection of songs to suit all age groups. We were a little worried as you never know if the band will sound as good live as the sample you hear on the website but we had no need to worry as the band exceeded our expectations and so many people came up to us to tell us how good they were!!”

Andrew, 21st Birthday Party in Nottingham, January 2016

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for such an amazing night on Saturday! Everyone at my party has commented on you guys and how good you were! The dance floor was packed and the song choices brilliant. Thank you.”

Mandy, Private Party in Nottingham, October 2016

“Thank you all so much for a great evening on Saturday. You were faced with a real challenge when the marquee we were supplied with wasn't up to the job but you persevered and worked with us to find a solution so that the night could go ahead. I have received so many comments from friends about your brilliance performance, it really made the night. We chose you from your demo online without having seen you perform before and you did not disappoint. We would not hesitate to book you again, although we would make sure that the marquee was watertight!!! Well done all of you and thank you for providing us with a night to remember.”

Catherine, Private Party in Derbyshire, August 2016

“What a band! We were lucky enough to have this 4 play at our wedding last weekend, and they were amazing. Brilliant vocals, great song choices and the dance floor was constantly full. The DJ set afterwards was similarly well thought out and flowed well. A good few remarks from guests about them being the best band they'd heard at a wedding. Can't recommend them highly enough!”

Joe & Keziah, Wedding in Shropshire, July 2016

“Just wanted to say a very big thank you for entertaining us last night at Plimhill Barn. The music was fantastic. All the very best for the future.”

Now, three weeks after the event, friends and family are still thanking us for this amazing quartet. The have their own repertoire but will take requests if asked. We cannot recommend this band enough, they were incredible.”

Brendon, Wedding in Gloucestershire, September 2015
