So if you're looking for the finest pop covers roaming band London has to offer, get in touch with NOMAD.
If you like the look of NOMAD, but 4 musicians stretches the budget, we have just released a condensed duo version: NOMAD Lite. Led by a singer or singer/guitarist and supported by the drummer who has all the other instruments stored in his live drum machine, triggered on the fly. All the sound, sass, mobility and interaction of the full complement - just smaller. Sax or an extra singer can be added.
We are forever gauging dance floors around the world and keeping an ear to the ground for the freshest party tunes. The sample set list provided here shows examples of places we like to go.
Please note that NOMAD operates as a family of no-compromise musicians, who are the best in London for this show and at the very top of their game. This means that the band may not have all members from promotional footage. The set list is indicative only and will vary according to the singer.
Please check out our website for more information.
Our venue has come back to us & advised that we can’t use a drum kit, so I wanted to know if that's critical to your set or can you use an electronic drum kit? (asked by Ben on 4 October 2021)
Response from James: We only use electric drum kits - so that’s all fine. But I worry the venue might have a sound limiter - which may hinder a pumping dance floor?
Yes the venue have recently introduced a sound limiter which is set to a max of 95db which I thought was still quite loud - although I’m no expert! What are your thoughts? Do you think a max of 95db would be an issue for you guys? (asked by Ben on 4 October 2021)
Response from James: It’s just always an unknown quantity. They set the limiter with DJ recorded music in mind - live music is so much more dynamic - might not sound as loud as DJ. We have a compressor to help with this, but I wouldn’t want to be the first band to try it out. Maybe they’ve had other bands in with no issues?

"NOMAD were great! Loved their energy. Their "roaming band" style added something extra and was really able to get everyone in the party mode. Great tunes and had a good feel of what songs to play throughout the night. Would recommend to anyone considering hiring them!"
"What to say. Amazing energy, great setlist and truly talented musicians. Such a great musical project. We are so happy NOMAD came to our wedding and I wish them the best for the future!"
"We thought NOMAD would be good from the promotional videos but we didn't realise just how good they would be. We booked them for our wedding and they performed a couple of sets. Their sit-down set during the canapés was perfect and had a few people dancing after being at the reception for maybe just an hour. When they kicked off the show later on though, it really stepped up a gear. The actual performance was flawless, the set list was excellent and their style of walking around the dancefloor was amazing, dancing with us and the guests while they played. It says a lot that NOMAD have been the first thing any of our guests have mentioned to us after the wedding as a highlight. We really couldn't recommend them more for any event where you want something special. FixTheMusic were also excellent in the run up to the event. They made their requirements clear, had good communication about logistics of getting the musicians to Spain and were overall very helpful and good at communicating with us."
"These guys are AMAZING! The party kicked off and even the guests we least expected were loving the dancefloor. Thank you so much NOMAD for bringing the best vibes and energy to our wedding - we loved every second and didn’t want your set to ever end!"
"NOMAD ARE AWESOME! Right from the very first second they brought energy and created a great atmosphere. They had a wide variety of music for us to choose from, they listened to our preferences but gave it some flair of their own.
We have already recommended them to a friend but 1000% recommend them for your big day. Thanks again guys!"
"NOMAD were an absolute a hit at our wedding! They really kicked off the party with their positive vibes and high energy performance. All of the musicians were so talented and we couldn’t stop dancing or laughing! We couldn’t recommend them highly enough, as they just were so awesome! Would definitely book them again if we had a party! Thank you for making our day so special! Anne-Claire and Sebastian."
"NOMAD were just absolutely fantastic - they really got the party started and our guests are still talking about them a month later as the best wedding band they'd ever seen. They were so easy to deal with and organise, really professional, and absolutely seamless on the day. We even had a last-minute emergency when one of the members of the band was taken ill, but James handled everything in finding a replacement and ensuring they'd be there at our event. What could have been a really stressful moment wasn't because of James' efforts. Could not recommend more."
"Hi James, I just wanted to pop a note over to say how amazing the band and DJ were. Everyone absolutely loved them and the band really made the night! So much fun. Please pass on my thanks and feedback to the band... we’d have them back in a heartbeat! Thank you for all your help in the arrangements - it went seamlessly. Literally in the office all day, all I’ve heard is how amazing the band were - the guys smashed it! Hannah."
"Wow - what can I say?!? NOMAD played at our wedding in Mallorca and absolutely brought the party! We knew from the minute they arrived it was going to be an incredible show. They were exceptional. Our guests were stunned and can’t stop speaking about them - a highlight of the wedding for so many people. The energy was electric and we didn’t want it to end. Thanks NOMAD!"
"NOMAD were amazing! We had a relaxed outdoor pizza party the night before our wedding and we wanted a band that would get people dancing, but would not be too formal. NOMAD were the perfect solution as they roamed through the party, ramping up the energy with the crowd. By the end everyone was dancing - even my Dad who never dances. Their set list was awesome, with some fab 90s tunes mixed in with some of the favourites. The energy of the guys was off the charts - as good if not better than the videos. I can’t recommend them enough. They were also very professional to work with, providing guidance on sound equipment ahead of the event and arriving well in time to audition and get set up. They were also just great guys! Thanks!!"
"Hey, I just wanted to thank you all for such an amazing performance. All guests were stunned by how good it was. Keep up the good work! Cheers, Arturs Kruze."
"Hi Ed and James, Just sending a quick message to say thank you so much, Nomad were absolutely incredible and beyond our expectations. They made our wedding and all of our guests have said how amazing they were and of course, super super cool. We couldn’t have wished for anything more. Thank you so much - please let me know how I can write an official review and I will. All the best, Brittany and Joe."
"We loved having NOMAD perform at our wedding celebrations! They brought so much amazing, fun energy and made it extra, extra special. They were super professional, friendly and easy to deal with! Such impressive, wonderful talent. Thank you!! Would 100% recommend them to others. Best regards, Hazel."
"Hey James, We just wanted to say a massive thank you to NOMAD, they were absolutely amazing, we couldn’t have wished for a more lovely group of people and they really were the best band ever. All of our guests are still talking about them, how incredible they were and how they were the best band they have ever seen at a wedding. Massive massive thank you, we had the best day of our lives! THANK YOU, Romilly and Scott."
"Hi James and NOMAD team, Where the hell do I begin?! This might be the most unusable review you've ever received but I will continue as what I witnessed on Saturday was truly remarkable and this data should be used in the form of some sort of science experiment. We booked you guys over a year ago and our aim was to make the dinner part of our wedding a little more interesting. In the time from booking to the day, i had been stalking any kind of social media you guys had posted and thought 'Are these guys going to be a little too much for our audience?'. I even recollect an email I sent asking for a 'toned down version' and 'less rappy performance'. How wrong was I? I met the guys just before the dinner and they were so welcoming and looked excited to be there. We took our seats for dinner and I knew we were going to have fun. The doors swung open and the band swagged out with a couple of little sound check notes on their instruments. Alex gave the crowd a little 'Oh' on the mic and everyone's attention was drawn to them. I could tell people were starting to salivate over what was to come. The first song was 'All Night Long' and a few people started to join in on the first chorus, I saw one of my friends turn to his wife and give her the nod of approval. My sister caught my eye and gave me the thumbs up and my wife stood up and started to join in. By the second chorus, within about a minute, everyone was on their feet dancing around the band. I thought this was the first song, how could they top this?! AND THEN HE GRABBED THE SAXOPHONE!!! People lost their minds! The absolute bangers kept coming and the whole crowd started to loosen up. My mother shouted at me in disbelief 'Where did you find them?!' to which one of the bridesmaids responded 'I know!!!'. Throughout the rest of the performance, I saw ladies in healthy marriages twerking the singers whilst their husbands filmed them, inhibitions were thrown out the window by ladies wearing way too risky dresses and some very heterosexual men were slut dropping like it was Friday night outside the Moulin Rouge. I saw guys trying to play along with the guitars using their shirt braces whilst the older crowd were bringing out moves from the archives they haven't used since the 70s. My new father in law who doesn't speak much English was body popping in the middle of the circle and my step mother who has just recovered from surgery was up on her feet. I should have put a warning on the invitations to upgrade their health insurance and made them sign a waiver on arrival. Every song was performed to such a high level and the crowd interaction was incredible, everyone thought they were up on stage at Wembley like groupies. I thought your social media was good but it doesn't do you guys justice, you are 1000 times better live. Every single guest said you were the highlight of the wedding which my wife is jealous about as she didn't book you, I did. I can't recommend you guys enough and will be throwing your name about like it's gone out of fashion. We need to find an excuse to book you guys again! We have some videos, where's best to send them? WhatsApp? Thank you so so much for everything, you were professional, helpful and an absolute blast from the moment we booked to the moment you left. Please pass our thanks on to everyone involved, the band members and the people behind the scenes for putting together something that will live with us forever. Thank you! Anthony & Alejandra."
"NOMAD band were friendly, professional and provided an amazing performance! They brought so much energy to the party and our employees loved it! Thanks, Sally."
"NOMAD played at our wedding reception in Cairo, and brought the house down! They sounded brilliant and got everyone up on the floor, besides being funny, wacky and energetic. And when they came back for their second set, they did it all again! Same energy, same amazing spirit. They were the highlight of the night, besides my dancing :) Everything was easy to organise, they sorted out their own travel and hotel, and worked with the DJ to agree on the sound system. Professional from start to finish. Thank you guys!"
"Dear James, We just wanted to ask if you could pass on a huge thanks to the band. They were brilliant and rocked the party. We were so impressed with the sound in our living room and the way they embraced everything so wonderfully. Huge thanks and I hope they got home safely! Warmest wishes, Susan."
"Amazing band! What more can we say other than they made our wedding! Could not recommend them enough. Three weeks later and people are still messaging us and asking for the band’s details so they can use them for their own events. Thank you for everything."
"NOMAD was absolutely incredible on Saturday. We were so thrilled to work with them and they were a huge success. They were such team players. When it started drizzling for a short period of time, they kept the party going and they were flexible when the timeline needed to be slightly adjusted. If we are in the area for events in the future and we can book them again, we will for sure reach out. Thanks again and have a wonderful week! Best, Emily + the team."
"Hi James, I just wanted to send a message to say a huge thanks to you and the band. They were absolutely incredible on the night of our wedding and honestly the place erupted as soon as they began! Friends and family had the time of their lives and still talking about NOMAD!! It was such a highlight of our very special day!! Would love to relive it all over!!! Claire."
"We had a fantastic time with NOMAD at the wedding. They were a really friendly bunch and got everyone suitably hyped, which was just what we were looking for! The song list seemed perfect for our guests and there were plenty of singalongs. The roaming aspect worked brilliantly at the venue which could have been slightly cramped with a full band. It made it very interactive. We had lots of positive feedback and their performance has been one of the key talking points of the wedding since! We would definitely recommend them if asked."
"Hi James, thank you so much for everything over the last few weeks and months. The band were absolutely incredible last night, beyond my expectations. You literally couldn’t get people off the dance floor and the sound was fantastic. You guys are going to kill it around Europe and I will certainly be endorsing you. So many of the guests were asking how we found you. Thank you for everything."
"OMG! WE ENJOYED OURSELVES SO MUCH. NOMAD were the star of the night...Just unbelievable!!! NOMAD were amazing!! When we thought about having a band they were what we were dreaming of. They were actually the best of the party and everyone loved them...We want them in all our events from now on!"
"Danny and the guys were absolutely fantastic. They raised the roof from minute one of our wedding and their energy levels were absolutely off the charts. Almost everyone who was there picked out the band as one of the absolute highlights. Danny is a brilliant frontman and built a rapport with so many people. He got people dancing, smiling and singing and we couldn’t have asked for any more. If anyone is hesitating on booking these guys, just do it. They were worth every penny and if we were having our wedding again tomorrow, we’d book them again without a second thought."
"Hi Ed, Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, I’ve been away and just settling back to normal life! NOMAD were amazing, extremely pleased with our choice. Would definitely recommend and please thank them again for their brilliant performance. Kind regards, Ouided."
"We were excited to book Nomad for our wedding in Sitges, just outside Barcelona. Their funky, upbeat sound was exactly what we were looking for...and they did not disappoint! They were a great addition to our wedding. Interacting, playing and dancing amongst our guests was a real highlight. They all loved it and were very impressed with their quality and attitude. They kicked off the party in true style and set the tone for the rest of the evening. Def one of the best choices of our day! Wouldn't hesitate to book them for the next event. Many thanks, Raquel."
"Hi James, We wanted to write to thank you SO much for making our wedding so amazing!! You really took it to the next level and it was better than we could have ever dreamt! I’m sorry we didn’t get much time to actually chat on the night. But I am quite sure you will be requested back in Malta soon, we have had SO many people asking for your details and saying how great you all were :) Hope you enjoyed your little stay in Malta too! Thank you again, Lisa & Jonas."
"The guys were incredible. They made our wedding day. All of our friends and family are pretty much unanimous in that you are the best band they have ever seen at a wedding. When the guys stood on the steps of the barn playing in the afternoon it created a great atmosphere. It was so chilled out and fun. Then in the evening it went off! The energy, the song choices were all perfect (although admittedly, stood dancing with my mum to the thong song was a weird moment). Rio was absolutely brilliant with the kids too, they idolised him and he was so patient with them, including them in so many of the songs. We’re now just sat racking our brains trying to think of another excuse/ event for you to play at… do you do annulments? Please pass on our thanks to all of the guys. You always have an idea in your mind of what you want your wedding day to be, but they lifted it to a whole new level. Marianne and I can’t thank you all enough."
"Hi James, Just a quick note to say how great the band was. Part of me wonders why Nomad's approach isn't the standard for weddings since it's so obviously superior to the normal setup, but the other part of me recognises that assembling a lineup with both the talent and charisma to pull it off is no mean feat. These guys knocked it out of the park and made the evening. I've had a number of requests for their contact details and as soon as I've ascertained that this is to book them rather than to ask them out on dates I shall send them your way. And that Thong Song arrangement...Hamish also rose to the occasion magnificently - his track selection was perfect, his handling of drunken Zimbabwean requests was professional, and I'm very grateful to him for expanding his range for the night. The dancefloor was packed throughout, and the atmosphere was great. I should also give a shout-out to the sound engineer, who very quickly made the necessary adjustments to the setup. And also to you - thank you for all your help and flexibility over the last few months. Planning an event during COVID is not straightforward, but arranging the music was really straightforward."
"These guys are truly amazing! Booked them for my son's wedding and from the very first song they had everyone up and dancing. Would definitely highly recommend them, they made the day."
"We were absolutely thrilled with NOMAD from start to finish. They were hugely accommodating with our very bespoke needs from the outset and really helped us to envision what we could achieve and how. Then the band themselves were beyond fantastic! Such talented musicians and really entertaining, unique performers. We had 3 guests who were either musicians themselves or really picky with music and all 3 came up to me of their own accord to rave about Nomad - which made us very smug indeed! They were also absolutely charming people and even helped us in a sticky situation when someone kicked the lights in to the river and we had to fix it from a short circuit. I've never seen my friends and family dance like that and loved seeing everyone smiling start to finish; the energy was incredible. THANK YOU - many more bookings to come from our group."
"We just wanted to say a massive thank you! The process of booking the band was very simple. We liaised with James about timings on the day etc and they agreed to get an early flight to our wedding in France to give us extra peace of mind on the day which was great. Since the venue was not “kitted out “, James assisted us with booking the sound systems and lighting through a company in France. This was a massive help as we wouldn’t have known what was needed. James continued to liaise with the company right up until the day to make sure all the logistics were sorted for us. When we met on the day the whole band (and DJ) were very friendly and personable. The band also took into account our song choices and agreed on the day (nothing like last minute on our part!) to play our first dance song - “sure - no problem “ was the response when they were asked on the evening itself! In terms of the actual music - it was amazing! It’s a bit worrying booking a band when you haven’t heard them in person beforehand but they definitely live up to their videos on the website! Everyone LOVED the band. A few of the comments we received from guests were: “Best band EVER!”, “We have been to a LOT of weddings -we are old!! - and I can say that band was our favourite - amazing!“ “I write events journalism (the person is a professional journalist) and I like watching events for that reason and I can honestly say that is the first time ever at a wedding or other event, that I have seen EVERYONE up and out of their chair dancing!” This was true - when the band were playing not a single person was sitting down! The comments continued in a similar vein from all of our other guests. They certainly know how to “work a crowd” and the involvement with everyone there was brilliant. The DJ that we booked through them was also brilliant and judged the crowd well. Would recommend! Next plan is for us to try to think of another event so we have a good excuse to hire you all again!! We had a fantastic time - thank you all for being a big part of it. Sarah & Mark, Chateau d’Ingrandes, France, 1 August 2019."
"I can safely say they’re the best band we’ve ever hired for a private party, they were bloody brilliant. Their immersive performance style as well as their musical talent shone through. All the guests were incredibly impressed and they now think I have a sixth sense for finding talented bands."
"The past few weeks have been a lovely hazy blur and I have also been meaning to email you. A huge huge thank you from myself and my partner Phil. I can't put into words how over the moon we are with our choice to go with you and the band for our special day. I still get goosebumps thinking about when we walked into the field for the drinks reception...the vibe, the sun, even down to the specific song the guys were playing is such a strong memory that we're honestly not going to forget in a while!! The music was so important to me as I've worked on so many corporate events and I really wanted a team of people who felt real, fun and special and you guys nailed it. It really did make the day for us, we wish we could re-live the whole dance floor from start to finish. My only regret was not booking you for longer!!! But having you for the drinks reception and then to kick off the party was important, you set the tone and got everyone drinking and in the mood. The main feedback we've received from guests was 'hands down the best band we've ever seen at a wedding' 'who are the band' !!! So many people were all saying this. Nailed it!! Needless to say we couldn't be happier. You're awesome! Thank you again and all the best. Mel"
"Hey James (and gang). Just want to extend the BIGGEST thanks to you guys ever. You honestly made our wedding. Everyone loved you and we loved you and we really are sorry for ever doubting your playlist. Lesson well and truly learnt, you guys know how to bring the party and everyone LOVED you! Thank you so much for being so awesome in the lead up to the wedding and on the wedding day itself, we could not have asked for more. Hope you had a safe flight home/awesome few days in BCN. Will tag you in any videos we come across. Thank you a million times over, Katy and Adam."
"The band were spectacular. Jay was insanely good and music was so on point. I have never seen a queue to get onto a dance floor until this night! Everyone said best party they had been to - wedding or no wedding - we went full on! Thanks so much. Joe & Noelle."
"The band were incredible - made the night! Jay and the guys were exceptional and delivered above and beyond! So many fabulous comments and great videos, we could not be happier. Sensational. Suzy & Dan x"
"I couldn't be happier! They were great, easy set up, easy to deal with and an amazing band. Highly recommend x"
"NOMAD's flagship group were one of the best acts we’ve had to the venue. Their ability to read the crowd, get the party going, and really transform an atmosphere was truly second to none."
"You guys were great tonight."
"We very much enjoyed your sets - up and dancing before the main course is unprecedented in my experience!"
"We spent tens of thousands on big name acts for the London Olympics and you guys have given these delegates and clients something way more special."
