More information about The Pop Up Band

Their vast experience in performing, writing, arranging and recording have seen them release an LP on iTunes/Spotify this year as well as keeping time for regular session work.

The Pop Up Band performs a wide variety of styles and enjoys the freedom of giving the audience a mixed genre of songs, covering recent chart hits, soul, funk, Motown, RnB, swing & jazz.

So if you're looking for the finest acoustic band to perform pop covers as well as several other genres at your wedding or event, get in touch with The Pop Up Band.

Lead singer Iddy Awan can also be booked as a soloist.


The Pop Up Band can perform as an acoustic band during any part of your special day, including the wedding ceremony and the wedding breakfast (where some light background music can create a relaxed atmosphere as your guests dine).

The band is becoming an increasingly popular choice for Jewish weddings in the UK and Europe.

For the evening reception, we perform more upbeat covers to keep your guests on the dance floor!

We are also able to perform outdoors (weather permitting!) so this is ideal for a wedding drinks reception or during photographs.

"I booked The Pop Up Band to play at my wine bar recently and he was brilliant. The crowd loved them (especially the ladies), everyone enjoyed the night and his covers were better than the originals. We have already booked them for the next event and cannot wait!"

"All I can say is wow. I booked The Pop Up Band nearly four years ago when me and my now Husband heard them performing at Orsett Hall's Valentine dinner and as soon as I heard Iddy (lead vocalist) sing I knew we had to have them. We were due to get married last year but unfortunately due to a change in circumstances we had to push our wedding back another year. I messaged Iddy and explained to him and he was so understanding. We booked our wedding abroad in Spain this year and they did not disappoint, was truly amazing. The amount of comments we have had since our wedding complimenting The band has been very overwhelming. They sung all of our song requests and also sung songs to get the crowd dancing. I just want to say thank you again for making our fairytale day even more perfect. You have such a beautiful voice, plus you are such a wonderful person. I am so glad we met you, we feel very lucky. Thank you for everything, Ashleigh and Daniel Lovegrove xxx"

"When we found The Pop Up Band on Fix the music, we instantly knew they were the band for our wedding. We could not be happier with our choice! They were absolutely amazing, performing all our favourite songs and all of our guests loved them. We have had messages from our guests telling us how good they were! The dance floor was full all night and even my 88 year old Grandad was up dancing the whole night! I would recommend The Pop Up Band to anyone - Fantastic! Thank you!!! Xxxx"

“The Pop Up Band performed at my wedding in Tel Aviv last week. They were extremely professional and able to accommodate special songs for our first dance, father/daughter dance, etc. They put on an amazing dance set and were able to read the room well. At the time of the event, I didn’t have to do anything but enjoy myself, as the band completed their sound check prior to the event. I had my wedding overseas and would fly The Pop Up Band out in a heartbeat for my next event. All my guests LOVED them, something every host loves to hear.”

"As a company, we arrange a variety of functions, be it corporate entertainment, or fundraising events for the local charities we are proud to support. The Pop Up Band are always our first choice. His performances are timeless and passionate, and he never fails to dazzle the crowd, but the reason we choose him is more than this, it’s his ability to connect with his audience, he leaves everyone feeling like they were part of the event – whether it's an intimate gathering of less than 10, or a Fundraising Ball with a crowd of over 250 people, there is never a single person in the room that isn’t ignited by his performance. He is a grounded and personable individual who will go out of his way to make your event everything you hope it will be, so whether it’s a wedding, a corporate event, a birthday or anniversary party – The Pop Up Band is always the perfect choice."

"I hope you are well. I just would like to thank you for playing on our wedding day. Everyone was commenting on how good you are. We had a lovely day and both had the biggest grin on our faces when we arrived back to Milsoms from the church and standing outside our cars, the sun was shining with you playing up on the green – it was just perfect. Thank you!!"

One of the best decisions I made when I was planning the wedding was booking The Pop Up Band. I saw them perform at an event in London and was blown away. It wasn't a difficult decision to make. I was so impressed by their humility, great ethos and passion and there was no doubt they would be perfect for our destination wedding In the Caribbean. We got nothing but compliments from our guests. He was absolutely fantastic. I for one was impressed by the range of genres. He made our big day very special and we feel very lucky to have found him."
