About The Birmingham Acoustic Band – professional acoustic wedding band based in the West Midlands

The Birmingham Acoustic Band are 5 piece band specialising in Funk, Soul, Pop and Folk music.

With their diverse backgrounds in theatre, classical music, jazz, rock, blues and pop, they can cover all areas of music.

They are a high-energy function band for afternoon & evening entertainment but with the twist of having an accordion, melodica and ukulele.

Their members met in 2012 at Birmingham University, all studying music composition.

Since forming properly in 2015 they have become the University's "go to" band, and become well known for busking in Birmingham, gathering large crowds and making Birmingham a brighter place.

The Birmingham Acoustic Band regularly perform at weddings, parties and festivals, previously performing at Godiva Festival and being featured on BBC radio.

You will love their energetic set that gets people up dancing from the start, and material lasting 4+ hours!

More information about The Birmingham Acoustic Band

Our unconventional ensemble of instruments (including ukulele and accordion) combine to create a unique folk/soul sound. If you're expecting a Mumford and Sons imitation, you're in for a big surprise.

We get the crowd up on their feet and feeling good taking inspiration from bands such as 'Earth, Wind and Fire' and 'The Jackson Five'. We perform and busk regularly around Birmingham so if you see us around, don't hesitate to say hello!

Originally, we all met each other through our university course in 2012. However, the collaboration really began in early 2015 in Madrid, Spain where we came together for several ensemble performances as part of our music studies abroad.

Upon our return to the United Kingdom, following the positive critical reception received in Spain, we decided to officially form a band and thus The Birmingham Acoustic Band were born.

Since our inception, we have had an impact on the Birmingham music scene and have been regularly performing at various venues such as The Devonshire Arms, The Litten Tree as well as often performing for functions for groups within Birmingham University.

Some of these have included 'Autumn Disruption' hosted by the Disruptive Media Learning Lab, Culture Night 2016 hosted by Culturae Mundi, TRACE photography exhibition and many more...

The Birmingham Acoustic Band are perfect for weddings and functions with their easily portable setup and own PA system if needed.

Armed with a wide variety of songs spanning from the 60's classics all the way up to present day chart-toppers, The Birmingham Acoustic Band have something for everyone.

Here are just some of the locations where we have been booked by clients on FixTheMusic fior weddings and events...

Callum

The energetic front man! He plays ukulele, sings, and dances if you are lucky. With a wide vocal range and charisma, he is bound to liven up any event. He is a highly experienced performer with training in Theater and Music. Vocally, he takes inspiration from Bruno Mars, David Bowie and Brett McKenzie.

Ryan

Bringing the beat that makes you move your feet! He contributes funky percussion in the form of a handmade cajón (ka-hon), which is fancy talk for "He hits a box". Ryan is also joined by his trusty sidekick "Monty" the foot-tambourine, adding another level of jingly goodness.

Nathan

The guy on keys, be it the accordion, or less common melodica. He spices up the sound with melodica solos and smooth accordion lines. He is arguably the nicest member of the band, which is an achievement in itself.

Christopher

​This is where the buttery biscuit bass happens. He gets the groove going with his sometimes simple, or sometimes technically demanding bass lines setting the foundations of the funk which has become synonymous the band's sound. As well as this, Chris is a highly capable vocalist who idiomatically performs with soul.

David

​The most defined caricature of the band with his stage name "Hot Chocolate" becoming a prominent feature of the group's mythos. His wit is only matched by humoured cynicism. He may not be the most talkative member but definitely has a way with words proving himself to be a poetic and dynamic lyricist. Doubling the guitar and vocals, he makes a mean duo of funky guitar riffs and a great falsetto backing vocal!
