Unusual bands & musicians for hire

Whether your party needs singing waiters or your guests want the mic, get inspiration from our unusual band and entertainment ideas

Looking for something completely different? We have a whole range of quirky, unorthodox entertainers to inject your event with real imagination and flair.

We have bands and musicians specialising in music that’s harder to come by, whether you want to dance or sit back and watch. Our specialist wedding bands can perform klezmer or dhol for your Jewish or Asian wedding, or try some ska and bluegrass for a birthday knees-up. For themed events our medieval musicians will take you back in time, while our singing waiters serve up an unexpected treat.

Want to get on stage? Our ‘bandeoke’ acts let guests seize the mic and become rockstars for a night.
