Venture out with this cool, suited and booted trio, offering a plethora of popular rock and pop hits from the past 60 years, right up to yesterday’s number 1.

The Ventures are expert performers who have performed at renowned music venues and festivals around the country, supporting some of the UK’s top musicians, and will deliver a bespoke, professional performance which will get your guests up and grooving!

Comprising vocals/guitar, bass guitar and drums/vocals, these expert performers have honed their skills playing for musicians such as Ocean Colour Scene and Leona Lewis, and have played at the Royal Albert Hall and 93 Feet East to name just a couple of locations.

Previous clients of the band include Barclaycard and they have done the rounds at the festivals – headlining Standon Calling and proudly taking their place on the Glastonbury stage!

The dance floor was filled with all our friends and family all night and the variety of songs was perfect, keeping us 'olds' happy as well as the kids! Mark, Private Party, Sussex

Take a look below for full details of their varied and versatile repertoire – these music aficionados want nothing more than to bring the music they love to your event, performing songs by artists such as The Beatles, The Troggs, Eddie Cochran (50/60s), Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Jam, Soft Cell (70s/80s), The Strokes, The White Stripes (90s) and bring the set smack up to date with a wide-ranging up to date playlist including artists such as Bruno Mars, Pharrell, Jessie J, Kings of Leon and more.

This talented, tight trio will be immaculately presented for your event; keen sartorialists, they know the importance of a first impression and are usually attired in white shirts and black suits and ties. However, if you have a more casual dress code in mind just let us know as they are happy to dress down if required.

This band also provide a FREE DJ service as standard with every booking, so you can be sure the music won't stop all night long!

If you are concerned about noise levels/meters at your chosen venue, The Ventures do provide the option of using an electric drum kit; they are keen musicians and natural professionals, and are sensitive to the differing needs – every event is different so if you need something special don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Mark, Private Party in Sussex, May 2016

“Thank you so much for your fabulous performance at our wedding - you were fantastic and we've lost count of the number of guests who commented on how great the band were. We were a little worried about booking a band off the internet, but you absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way possible - thank you.”

Lara, Wedding in London, February 2016

“Just a note to say thanks for Saturday night. The band were amazing and really made our night. I know of 5 couples who came to see you and a guest asked us for your details so I hope you get some business from the night. One of the girls said there was a website we could leave feedback on, could you give me the details and I'll be glad to leave it.”

We had loads of people asking where we found them and they will be top of the list for any future events. They made a special day just that bit more special.”

Jeremy & Claire, Private Party in East Sussex, September 2013

“The band were truly brilliant and were a big part in making our wedding day the best day of our lives.

Fantastic performance - thank you.”
