Highlights include being invited by fashion gurus like Tommy Hilfiger and Philipp Plein to animate their birthday parties.

The band's huge repertoire ranges from 70s disco to Rock 'n' Roll, from Italian evergreens to unforgettable 80/90s disco hits. But what makes The Puppets stand out is their Top 40 setlist, regularly updated with today's biggest dance and pop music hits.

The high-quality vocal performance and image of the two singers (Martina and Francesco) combining perfectly into a single dimension enhances the impact of the live show and gives the feel of a Dance House Club. The band is also known as the best party mash-up band Italy has to offer!

The band is in demand throughout Italy. They have performed at exclusive destination weddings in Bologna, Milan, Rome, Tuscany, Lake Como, Lake Garda, Venice, Parma, Genoa, Padua, Verona and Pisa.

In Italiano

In oltre quindici anni di attività si sono esibiti nei più prestigiosi locali d’Italia ed hanno partecipato ad innumerevoli eventi privati e convention (BMW, Diadora, Nissan) vantando inoltre esibizioni in vari paesi europei (Austria, Germania, Francia) ed a Sharm El Sheik presso il prestigioso villaggio vacanze Domina Coral Bay.

Il loro repertorio spazia dai classici successi disco dance anni '70 al rockandroll , dagli evergreen italiani agli indimenticabili anni ‘80.

Ma il vero punto di forza della loro trascinante scaletta è la House Music che va dagli anni 90 alle hit del momento in un susseguirsi di musica e coreografie che permette alla band di soddisfare le esigenze delle platee più differenti tra loro.

Anche la sonorità della band è chiaramente dance in virtù della console DJ ed effettistica sul palco utilizzata a rotazione da ogni singolo elemento del gruppo.

La presenza sul palco dei due cantanti Martina e Francesco rende lo spettacolo un qualcosa che oltre che essere ascoltato merita di essere visto in quanto i 2 si rivelano ben presto dei veri e propri intrattenitori grazie alla consolidata esperienza in numerose discoteche del nord italia in veste di Vocalist.

Di fatto una band che conia perfettamente in una unica dimensione la forza dell’impatto live ed il coinvolgimento tipico delle discoteche e della dance music

"The Puppets were unbelievable! They amazed the guests from the beginning onwards. Their positive energy and power kept us dancing the entire time. They played all the music we expected and combined it so perfectly that the excitement kept on going. The members of the band were so nice and working with them was a pleasure. Very professional! We received so many compliments on the day after the wedding regarding this insanely good band. Therefore we can recommend them without doubt!"

"If absolute perfection is what you are looking for, you've found it with The Puppets. I wish someone else had written the review we are writing here just to tell me to stop looking any further and to hire this incredibly talented band. Not only were they professional from their very first email communication to the planning, soundchecks, and their delivery, but they also took our wedding to levels that our guests and us will cherish and look back to forever. The vocalists, Martina and Francesco will BLOW YOUR MIND. Their setlist and mashups are just so damn good that you won't want them to end their sets. They bring an unimaginable level of energy to the wedding and they play so tight. If you're looking to organize a memorable wedding that will leave you and your guests speechless and in awe, you won't ever regret this group! We also want to take a moment here to mention the DJ they have recommended to us for the after-show party is equally as talented and brings professionalism and energy that is rarely found. We are forever grateful for choosing The Puppets and wish for anyone reading this that they make the same decision. You truly won't regret it! See you again soon Puppets...we're booking you for our next events guaranteed!"

"We had our wedding in Ravello Italy this past August 2021 and actually changed the date in order to make sure we’d be able to book the puppets band and I can say that we were so happy that we did! This band absolutely ROCKED!! Every song was incredible. The energy, the music and the vocals were all spot on! I can not recommend this band enough. If you are getting married in Italy you MUST book the Puppets! Not only were they fantastic musically but Simone was so professional and made my wife and I feel comfortable the whole time leading up to the wedding! We still keep in touch with Simone and Francesco and consider them friends now after how great they were on our wedding night. All of our guests commented on how amazing the band was and how it elevated their evening. The Puppets Rock!!"

"They were absolutely brilliant and so many of our guests told us how fantastic they found their performance. Definitely one of the highlights of the day! The Puppets were absolutely fantastic and completely made our evening (and dance floor!) - they were even better live than we expected, with the most amazing vocals and mixes. It was like having a private concert! Our friends and family are still talking about how much they loved them today! Thanks, Susan."

"These guys are the real deal, and created one incredible party! I lost count of how many times I was asked on the night, who they were and where we found them, all of the guests were very very impressed. The setlist was faultless and included a range of music from the '70s all the way up to modern classics - it meant people of all ages were on the dance floor non-stop. Everything about this band is real quality - musical talent, equipment, performance, set-list, engagement with the crowd - the list can go on! It's also worth mentioning Simone, one of the band members, who was a pleasure to deal with and always very quick to respond to any queries or questions. I would highly recommend The Puppets for any kind of event, you won't be disappointed!"

"We had the Puppets from Bologna perform, as planned, at our event last Saturday. Absolutely brilliant! They kept all guests on their toes through the entire set. Everyone just loved their energy and sound! They are an amazing find. I’ll be more than happy to write a recommendation for them - 6 stars out of 5 or 12 Stars out of 10, whatever your scale. Could you please send me a link to where I can leave customer feedback - this was just awesome, and Simone was very easy to work with from abroad! A BIG word of THANK YOU from the Bronder family - Liz, Cornelio, Pascale, Alec - and all our guests! Last night your performance was AWESOME!! Really, really good to keep guests from 10 years to 60 years of age dancing non-stop all night!! Our guests this morning were VERY appreciative of the music, the voices, the whole setting and story. I am so glad that I found you and that you had time to come down to Cinciano for this gig. Now, you have a friend at Cinciano with Jacqueline and with Angela who - I hope and I repeated to them - should recommend "The Puppets" to any other large event that might need a music performance. And we will keep our eye out for a gig in the USA :)"

"FixTheMusic were perfect for booking our wedding band. We are from Canada and had our wedding on the Amalfi coast in Italy. Within days of making our request online (male and female singer with full band to play top hits) we were recommended The Puppets and had direct contact with them. Simone from the puppets and Ed from fix the music were top notch to deal with. Very straight forward and simple, they took all the stress out of one of the most important elements of our wedding. As for The Puppets, their performance and professionalism on wedding night was incredible, they had all of our guests dancing and partying all night and everyone asking ‘where did you find this band!!!’ A huge success, I would recommend using fix the music to anyone who needs help finding the perfect band for their event. And as for the Puppets they were amazing, played above and beyond our expectations and were open to all of our setlist suggestions and must have song requests. Unbelievable band, excellent people. Thank you so much, Gerardo e Holly."

"We had the great pleasure of working with the Puppets on 7th September for a very complicated wedding. Simone and his band, the DJ, the sax player and the piano player - every single one of them - were amazing! Not only they are fantastic musicians but they have demonstrated patience and understanding for the problematics of the wedding that are second to none. They really went the extra mile for us! They were accommodating and available for any request, no matter how small. We can't praise them enough. Thank you for a job VERY well done! We have already booked them again for next year!"

"The boys were really engaging, they started off a little bit and then let us go wild. We have chosen them for the welcome drinks, and I must say that it was really a fantastic moment. They are very nice guys, gentle and helpful, we had several contacts with them, especially with Simone, who calmed us down whenever we raised a problem or raised a doubt. Thanks again for everything."

"Just AMAZING!! We were very excited about this band from the offset, watching their videos online and we weren’t disappointed!! The atmosphere they created was incredible and their energy onstage insured that they just weren’t your standard wedding band. Our guests are still asking us who this band are and where we found them as they want to follow their future events online! So thanks to you also fixthemusic! Communication with Simone throughout was commendable and reassuring. The Puppets were an absolute highlight for our remote mountain wedstival and we couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks very much guys!!! Whatever your special occasion or event may be then look no further! These are your guys!!!"

"We are based in the UK and Puppets band was booked through FixTheMusic (who I found online) for our wedding in Bellagio, Lake Como over a year before the event. Initially we were a little nervous about paying the deposit so early and having faith that the band would turn up and do a good job. However we had no need to worry, the professionalism of both Simone at Puppets and the Fix the Music team and the excellent communication from both, soon set our minds at rest.On the day of the event the band arrived in good time to set up and played the most amazing ‘gig’ with dance music exactly as we had asked, the whole wedding party got up to dance and the night was a huge success. At the end of the night Simone came across to thank us and see if we were happy with their performance....so friendly! We would have no hesitation to recommend either Puppets who travelled from Bologna to Bellagio, or Fix The Music, based in the UK...a great team!"

"We booked The Puppets for a small wedding in Castle Borgia. They put on a great show and kept the party going the whole time they were playing. They played a great mix of music from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s, as well as some modern hits and Latin music. They got the crowd involved and kicked of many singalongs. Would recommend them without hesitation if you are thinking of booking a live band. The only issue I have is that they don’t live closer to me so I can see them again! Regards, Brendan.
