More information about The Bastions

Although we regularly perform for corporate clients we also love to perform at weddings, fund raisers and birthday parties – anywhere that people love to dance.

Our huge range of songs contains a mixture of rock, pop, soul, dance and funk, from 60s classics all the way up to current contemporary chart hits.

We are a band designed to suit any occasion and will customise our line up according to your event. We can perform all-out, floor-filling entertainment, add in low key dinner music, or even extend the band lineup to include brass section or female vocals – ask and you shall receive.

We aim to make your event as stress-free as possible. We set up quickly, are always well-presented and correspond with clients in a professional manner to answer any and all queries regarding the set-up and performance.

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

  • Holford Village Hall, Somerset
  • Church Lane, Mildenhall, Marlborough

So if you're looking to hire the finest covers band London has to offer for your wedding or event, get in touch with The Bastions.

"Guys, just wanted to say a big thanks to The Bastions for the great job you did at our wedding party last weekend. All the guests thoroughly enjoyed your set and it was musically spot-on. All the best for the future."

"The Bastions, well what can I say. You guys provided a top class professional performance that had everybody dancing and singing all night. I highly recommend you to anyone I meet as I have had the privilege to see you perform on two occasions, and I know you can deliver every time. Months down the line we still get fabulous compliments about what a great night they had – you truly smashed it. But not only were you guys great you have the personalities to match. You even took the stress out of all the planning. We have great memories of our first dance which you learnt and played perfectly right up until the last song where we were suddenly surrounded by all our family and friends in a circle on the dance floor, I still have that song in my head!!!! Danny and I wish you all the best and success for the future because you definitely deserve it. (Note for people wanting a great band: If you haven’t booked The Bastions you are missing out! And if you have booked them you will not be disappointed)."

"The Bastions played at our wedding on Saturday - from start to finish they were professional and communicated really well which put my mind at ease. Paul made gentle suggestions on timings and they worked really well. On the day - the music was great, it was the perfect noise level and the dance floor was busy all night. The tiny issue which arose the day before was sorted without me even knowing and the replacement singer was fantastic and had learned our first dance etc overnight I think! I have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody who wants a great party but with true professionals. Many thanks to you all. Helen"
