Performing over 200 times a year, their vast repertoire of hits from every musical era includes favourite songs for everyone.

Available for weddings and parties on the French Riviera and worldwide, The Artists perform completely acoustically, requiring no amplification or stage, preferring instead to mingle with the audience – serenading, flattering, surprising and seducing their listeners as they go.

The group's audacious repertoire ranges from Rat Pack swing 60's, rock n' roll and 80's classics to current chart music, giving hits from across the decades the distinctive Artists treatment – unique instrumentation, riotous performances and 4 part harmonies.

"We booked The Artists through FixTheMusic for our wedding. The booking process was very easy and the band were very responsive to any questions we had. The Artists themselves were amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better band for our wedding! Everyone has commented on how great they were!"

"Johnny! Just a note to say thank you again for everything for our wedding day. It has been nearly three years in the making during the pandemic, and after having two babies, it really was so incredibly highly anticipated and long awaited! We were so overwhelmingly touched at the magic of the day and how everything came together....it was such a fairy tale. Thank you for helping to bring that magic! You all have such an amazing energy and we were grateful to have you alongside us. It was so much fun!!! We all had a blast and you made dinner a sure highlight for so many of our guests. It was perfect!! Thanks for bringing the vibe that made the night unforgettable! How can we leave you a review? Taylor & Adam."
