More information about City Beats

City Beats are also being booked quite regularly for international functions and have recently travelled as far as Israel, where they have spent a month entertaining all the lovely people of Eilat at the famous Three Monkeys Club, which is part of Israel's finest 5 Star Hotel, the Royal Beach Hotel.

City Beats are a 4 piece band consisting of an incredible front girl on main lead vocals, guitar with lead vocals, bass and drums. All our members sing backing vocals as well, which makes for a very full and sweet sound.

City Beats' band members are professional musicians and have worked with artists, bands and members of bands as diverse as Sir Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Amy Winehouse, The Pretenders, Kula Shaker, Stevie Nicks, Kylie Minogue, La Roux, Seal, Aha, Ian Dury, Wilko Johnson, Kool and the Gang, Meredith Brooks and Del Casher.

City Beats' eclectic repertoire includes more modern dance flavoured music by Rudimental, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Black Eye Peas, Clean Bandit and so on in our set. Their repertoire ranges from the 60's up to the very latest floor-filling tunes.

Our clients always come first and we will do anything necessary to contribute to the success of your event. We love to liaise and are always available to go through ideas or worries you might have.

Guaranteed to deliver floor-filling, sing-along anthems from start to finish, City Beats wedding band always leave the crowd wanting more. So much more than your average cover band, they'll make each song their own, mixing classic rock and indie anthems with the best new music and throw in some unexpected foot stompers, reworked with a City Beats twist.

City Beats are always 100% live, no backing tracks, no gimmicks, just pure unadulterated rock and roll! City Beats can turn their hands to a great variety of different genres and styles and always pull it off with great fun and authority.

They aim to tailor make their sets to suit clients own personal needs and preferences and can learn specific songs for your special occasion should you so wish.

In 2013 City Beats were chosen to star in a major viral advertising campaign for Benefit Cosmetics in which people who answered a ringing pink telephone were taken for a make over and performed live with the band in the Cafe De Paris. Within days of going online the video had racked up almost 100,000 views (and counting!)

They were also chosen for Haven Holiday parks advert and performed live in the advert in 2014.

City Beats can also come as a duo, either with acoustic guitars for some chilled music or with full backing tracks. We offer this service as we understand that not everybody has the space or budget to accommodate a full band.

City Beats band have Public Liability Insurance and fully PAT-certified audio equipment and lighting equipment. We are able to learn any song requests you might have, provided you let us know in advance.

City Beats also have 20 minutes of Horah music sung in Hebrew for Jewish weddings.

Our previous clients include National Federation Of Young Farmers Convention, Naughty Reunion Weekender, TNT Magazine World Cup Party, The Colman Company, Haven Holidays, Park Resorts, Butlins, Walkabout, The Roadhouse and more.

We usually offer 2 hours of playing that could be broken down into either 2 sets of 60 minutes, or 3 sets of 40 minutes.

However, we are always happy to do whatever is needed and works for your special event. Our equipment setup time is between 30-45 minutes.

"We booked City Beats from the Fix the Music website. We didn’t manage to see them live before booking so relied on their YouTube clips. These were very representative of how they were live. Robert from City Beats was quickly in touch once we booked. He was friendly, easy to talk to and immediately inspired confidence. He even offered to learn our first dance. A few weeks before the wedding we were sent a long list of songs ranging from the 60s right to recent hits. There was an excellent choice and we were asked to choose those we really wanted and cross out those we weren’t too keen on. The band were great! They had to substitute their usual vocalist only a few days before the wedding because of laryngitis but they still gave a great performance. The dance floor was never empty when they were on. We were so pleased with our choice. We would highly recommend them for a wedding or similar occasion."

"I first saw City Beats play at a summer ball, it was a great night and one in which they were truly the epicentre of it. All of our guests commented on how good the band were. Naturally, they were an obvious choice for my wedding. We had a large variety of guests, but City Beats play lots of the classics you can choose from, from a pretty extensive list. If you want people to get up and dance, this is the band! They were low maintenance for us, despite travelling several hundred miles to play the gig, they were on time and set up without fuss. The band members were fantastic as individuals, friendly and can-do, and extremely talented musicians. It was an absolute pleasure having them at the wedding venue. They played 3x 45 minute sets for us, and the music was absolutely fantastic; their energy with the crowd was on point, and I can safely say they made the wedding a really memorable event for everyone present. This was noted by pretty much everyone there. All in all, considering the quality of the gig, the value for money was outstanding and after having done a lot of shopping around, they cannot be beaten on price or quality. To Robert and the crew; from Anna and I, thank you so so much for coming all the distance, and bringing your A-game! You guys alone made it a night to remember and I’m sure I’ll see you again at another event! Thanks so much again, you guys couldn’t have been better!"

"Dear Robert, We can't thank you all enough for what was a lovely afternoon. Everyone LOVED you all and thought that you were fantastic! The songs that you played were perfect, just what we wanted and we really enjoyed dancing and singing along! We even had an email from a neighbouring family who asked who the band were, as they listened and danced in their gardens for the afternoon and thought you were brilliant! We would love to have you back to play at St Hilarys one day for sure! I hope also you all enjoyed your Saturday night off! If I could give you 10 stars I would! Best wishes, Louise"

"Hi Robert, You beat me to the email! I was just about to send you a message to say that we had the most fantastic time and that you and your very talented band were just superb. I don't know how many people have said to me that the music was so so good. I wish you every success in your playing and from the number of people who wanted your details, I am sure you will get more bookings from this and hopefully we will then meet again. Thank you so much for letting us indulge ourselves in the interval - it reminded me that there is no substitute for practicing or at least a rehearsal but HEY it was great fun and no one (but you I suspect) spotted all the dreadful mistakes!!! LOL. Good luck to you all and thank you once again for making the day very special indeed. Kind Regards, Tony"

"Hi Robert and the band, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but just to say a huge thank you to all of you! We had a fantastic day and you guys topped it off, you were great and we really enjoyed your performance (Chris spent most of the second set jumping around shouting "this is awesome!!"). All of our guests have said that the two things that were really great about the day were the food and the band - thanks so much! Chris & Sophie"
