A covers band like no other, The Yoyos give a funky acoustic twist to all your favourite songs across the decades. Artists covered are as diverse as Ne-Yo, The Jacksons, MGMT, Alicia Keys, George Michael, Ellie Goulding, The Police and Buena Vista Social Club!

The band are an ideal choice for venues with very tight sound restrictions, or at afternoon or early evening drinks receptions requiring background music at a volume that won’t drown out your guests’ conversations.

Couldn't be more satisfied! They were well organised, professional, helpful and made a real difference to the atmosphere at our wedding! Barry, Wedding, Surrey

The musicians in the band have experience playing in hot venues such as The Old Vic Theatre, The Old Queens Head in Angel, Ronnie Scott's and recording with such artists as The Voice's Liam Tamney, J.Marie Cooper and Jaz Ellington. The band currently have a residency at one of London's most exclusive restaurants, within the Marriott Hotel.

Expect a truly mesmerising, organic acoustic sound at your wedding, corporate event, bar/bat mitzvah or anniversary!

The Yoyos are currently offering rates which may be lower than their advertised "from" price, for midweek events (Sunday to Thursday) – please get in touch for more information.

“We used The Yoyos for a work function and they were brilliant! The band were extremely professional throughout the evening and I really appreciated the fact that the lead singer called me on the day to go over final details. Our event started early and I was really surprised to see people up dancing so early in the evening - I put that down to the great music the Yoyos were playing. So many people have commented on the band and we are now hoping to book them for our Christmas party! Thanks Yoyos!!”
