More information about The Nauticals

We love playing anything that makes sure the dancefloor is kept busy all night. Whether it’s Elvis or Ed Sheeran, we’ve got it covered.

Our standard service includes 2 x 60 minutes (or 3 x 40 minutes) of live music up until midnight (which can be extended).

We also include free DJ music in between and after our sets so there’s no need to hire a DJ.

We are fully equipped with our own top spec PA & lighting rig - all we need is a couple of plug sockets and we’re good to go!

As one of the UK's most loved wedding bands with male and female vocals (and sax too!), what sets us apart from most other 4 piece bands is our ability to adapt our instrumental lineup without adding additional band members.

Our female singer also plays saxophone which means she can steal the show by ripping into some of the most famous sax solos of all time without the need of backing tracks.

We also offer an additional saxophone club set after our band performances to keep the party going for you and your guests.

Our drummer is also a fantastic keys player and our guitarist also plays drums which means we can swap around if you have a special request or a live first dance that requires anything more than the standard guitar, drums and bass 4 piece lineup.

We’ve been fortunate enough to have travelled all over the UK, Europe and the Middle East performing at corporate events, weddings and five star hotels as well as many prestigious venues including the The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium, The Royal Albert Hall, NEC Birmingham, Leeds Castle, O2 Academies, VEGA Copenhagen, Kensington Roof Gardens.

We’ve also worked with some well known celebrities such as Jahméne Douglas, Conor Maynard, Chas ‘n’ Dave, Chris Kamara and more.

We perform at around 150 events every year and playing in the band is our full time job which we’re very happy about!

It also means that we take it seriously and we always do our very best to make sure every client is 100% satisfied. We have plenty of reviews and testimonials to back this up.

We’re based in London but are used to travelling all over the UK for weddings up and down the country. One night we’ll be in Liverpool and then off to Dorset for the next one!

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

FAQs

How much do you charge?

Our fee varies depending on the day of the week, time of year and location of your event. Get in touch for an accurate quote!

How far do you travel?

We travel both UK-wide and internationally.

Do you play any public gigs?

Due to the nature of our work, we don't play many public gigs as all of the events we perform at tend to be private functions. We try to offset this situation by making sure we have plenty of promotional material which accurately represents our performance in a live scenario.

Are you insured?

Yes we have Public Liability Insurance cover up to £10M and all of our equipment is professionally PAT tested yearly. We can send our certificates to you or your venue upon booking.

Do you have lights?

Yes we have LED lighting which covers us and the dance floor for the ultimate light show during your event.

What happens if a band member is ill on the day of our event?

In the unlikely event that a band member is ill on the day of your event, we have some of the best replacement musicians on standby to fill in.

How long do you play for?

Our standard evening package includes 2 x 60 minutes of live music and DJ music before, in-between and after our live sets. As well as our evening band sets, we also offer some acoustic options, perfect for your ceremony, drinks reception or during your meal.

Do you have any specific requirements?

All we ask is that you're able to provide us with soft drinks and food for the duration of our time at the venue. Usually we're included in the evening food/buffet.

How and when do I pay?

We require a deposit to be paid securely via FixTheMusic to secure the booking and the remaining balance is due before the event.

How long does it take you to set up?

It takes us approximately 1 hour to load in, set up, soundcheck and get changed ready to start the first song.

Are noise limiters an issue?

We have a lot of experience performing at venues with sound limiters. Usually our drummer can use 'hot rod' sticks which is enough to bring our overall volume down. Unlike most bands, we also have an electric drum kit which we can also bring which allows us to have complete control over the entire band volume.

Do you play requests?

When it comes to first dance songs, we are more than happy to consider learning it for you. It largely depends on whether the particular song fits our instrumental line up. For example, it would be difficult for us to pull off a Frank Sinatra song with a big orchestra. Upon booking, please let us know if there's a particular song you'd like us to consider learning so we have enough time to learn it well.

"Hello WOW! Just WOW! Our wedding was incredible, the Nauticals gave the final WOW of the night! The band was absolutely INCREDIBLE and I cannot put into words just how unbelievable they made our wedding evening. All guests, of all different ages were up dancing all night and loved every minute! The band were fantastic, from our first dance to the live sets to the additional sax set from Robyn! All of our neighbours went crazy saying they put on impromptu parties, enjoyed bbqs listening and were grooving until the early hours! On all the local FB groups people were asking who they were! I wouldn't hesitate to book them again :) They will not disappoint! FANTASTIC!!!! Thank you, Becky."

"We loved The Nauticals' performance. They brought an incredible energy to our wedding and everyone we spoke to thought they were amazing. We started with an acoustic set which sounded beautiful and set the right tone and they then got everyone dancing in the evening before we ended on a high with the club set. Can’t recommend this band enough!"

Everyone has been raving about all of you and how fantastic you all were, the vocals were outstanding and you read the room so right! I don't think anyone wanted the dancing to stop.

"We booked The Nauticals for our wedding, which after three covid related delays, went ahead this July and they were fantastic. They did an upbeat acoustic set for us and really made the night. Despite not being allowed dancing (again covid!), They had people dancing in their chairs and the sax addition was amazing. We had so many comments from guests loving the band and I would fully recommend for either acoustic or full band if you can. The FixTheMusic team was helpful and responsive throughout and dealt with all the date changes with ease."
