I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?

Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features dancefloor fillers from 60s – current chart, so there's certainly something for everyone.

Do you take requests?

We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

How long do you take to set-up?

60-90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

What time do you play?

At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.

How long do you play for?

We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

Can you provide music for our drinks reception?

Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute soloist acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?

Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?

Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?


Will you perform our first dance?

Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?

We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.

Can we see you play live before booking?

As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to.

Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.

“The Underground were absolutely amazing! They were professional turning up on time and playing their sets. They are an extremely talented bunch of guys and everyone commented on how fabulous they were. In addition to this they were extremely patient and good-humoured with the drunken bride who kept wanting the microphone. Please extend my apologies for being so annoying and my thanks for their tolerance!”

“I’d like to say a huge thanks - we didn’t get to speak to the guys as between dancing and chasing round our kids it just flew by. So a great big thanks for belting out some classics.”

“Just an early thanks to you and The Underground with regard to being our band at our wedding reception. The lads were amazing at getting set up, were friendly and exactly what we were hoping for and more. We would love to come and watch them again so please let us know if they have any gigs! Couldn't recommend them more highly to anyone wanting a fun, modern band with the intention of getting everyone on the dance floor, or the under 55s at least! Thanks again and please pass our gratitude to the boys.”

“The Underground recently played at our wedding in Bexley, South East London. They guys were fantastic - they sounded great and most importantly they got our reception revellers dancing away. Really slick work, highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.”

“Can I also just take this time to say how brilliant the band were on Saturday. All our friends absolutely loved it. It was such a brilliant day and to have The Underground perform and end it on such a high, made it even better. I would say that we would be recommending them to our friends, but they did that all by themselves that evening! I'm already trying to work out what events we either have coming up (or what events I can find an excuse) to get in contact with you again to use their services once more! Thanks again, so much. Kind Regards”

“We really wanted to give feedback on the band as they were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! I never stopped dancing from the moment they started until they finished! I've had SO MANY people telling me they thought they were amazing, and they had everyone up dancing. I literally couldn't fault them, please pass on our feedback to the guys (I'm pretty sure after a few too many glasses of champagne I told them a million times anyway!) But yes....just fantastic!!! Thank you so much!”

“Could you please pass our thanks on to the band for Saturday night. They were amazing & so talented. All night I had people asking who they were and where I found them. They kept people dancing all night & people were even offering us money to get them to play longer! Couldn't have been more impressed. They were the cherry on top of our perfect day! Thank you so much :)”

“8 months since our wedding people are still commenting on how great the band were! The Underground we’re polite, professional and accommodating. We were running about an hour behind and the band sacrificed their breaks to play their entire 2 hour set of floor-filling music. The old school to new school hip hop and funk tracks meant that the youngest and oldest guests could get their dance on. I would pay to see these guys play tomorrow. I can not recommend the band enough…if you do hire them, please invite us to the evening do so we can join in the fun!”
