About The Craftsmen – professional wedding & party band based in Nice, France

The Craftsmen are a rock & pop cover band from Nice that perform on the French Riviera and around Europe at festivals, pubs, nightclubs, hotels, restaurants, and also for private events such as weddings, corporate events and private parties.

Since their creation in 2015, each member of the band has been a professional musician.

The full band is composed of 3 guitar players, a double rhythmic session with our bass and drums, with vocal performances provided by the whole band, creating a full harmony on every song played.

We are inspired by great bands such as The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, CCR and The Killers.

Please take a look at our 2024 SET LIST

So if you're looking to hire one of the French Riviera's most popular energetic bands to get the party going, get in touch with us!

We're regularly booked to perform for weddings and events at Casa Fuego in Menton and Chateau de la Bourlie in Urval, France.

More information about The Craftsmen

Guitar arrangments, influenced by the Eagles or Creedence Clearwater Revival, are brought up by the power of the rhythmic session and the voices.

The band can either perform as a duet, a trio, a quartet or even a quintet.

The multicultural influences and various genres of music played by the band come from their personal experiences abroad through trips and works overseas, in countries like England, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Eastern Europe, South America... and mostly, for the love they share around rock 'n' roll!

Our primal field takes place in rock performances. We also enjoy playing acoustic shows.

We attach much importance to the preparation of our performances, and most of all, we try to give you the best live quality sound.

In order to achieve that goal, we play with professional equipment and always try to improve our sound to give the best concert possible (Jules, our drummer, has actually followed sound tech courses for a year and worked as a sound technician for a few years).

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

  • Casa Fuego, Boulevard de Garavan, Menton, France
  • La Ferme Du Rastel, Bourdeaux, France
  • Chateau de la Bourlie, Urval, France

"“I booked The Craftsmen for a corporate party of approximately 45 people. Most of whom had never met each other before. The Craftsmen were the perfect band for us. Aside from their impressive repertoire, and obvious talent, they were effective in filling the dance floor! Despite our small numbers The Craftsmen were not fazed, and their energetic performance had the dance floor jumping all night! At one point, there wasn't a person left sitting! Thank you for a truly enjoyable evening. I highly recommend!!”"
