Wandering bands & musicians

Hire a fully mobile wandering band or roaming musician for summer garden parties or venues which don’t allow amplification

Don your boater and hire a roaming dixieland band or bring the spirit of the Caribbean to your summer garden party or corporate event with one of our steel bands.

Our wandering bands and musicians can all perform “unplugged” if required, so they’re not constrained by power supplies or heavy speakers. This allows them to roam freely around your event, play in several locations or even blend in with and surprise guests.

We have a range of bands for cultural and themed events, including roving brass bands for Oktoberfest, medieval minstrels, mariachi bands, and French musette duos.

Our roving singers include acappella vocal groups as well as singing acoustic guitarists for serenading guests.

In addition to wandering entertainment, we’ve also included bands here who would ordinarily use power but can perform unplugged on request.
