Function Band for your Wedding

Overview

Everyone knows a great live party band can change an average party to one of the most memorable nights of the year! The Collective Band love being a part of that experience that your guests will never forget.

We work closely with event & party organisers, event managers as well as directly with the client from our set up time to any hidden surprises you may have on the night to ensure you have the best party band in the UK.

The London based Collective work as some of the most in demand female session musicians & travel all around the world to give you that live party band experience your event deserves.

We have a large repertoire from the 50’s right to present day to keep everyone on their feet.

We are a collective of professional musicians who provide bespoke live entertainment for private and corporate events in London and around the world.

This exclusive cooperative of hand picked musicians play an array of genres from seductive afternoon jazz to chart topping pop, all tailor made to suit your event and requirements.

The party band start as a 4 piece and go up to a 10 piece ensemble including the 3 piece horn section “Mammas Got The Horn!”
Unlike a lot of other party bands, all of our musicians still work as professional in the industry, not just as teachers but performing live with well-know acts and touring shows which means there is always something fresh we can bring to the table when serving you a feast of Sophisticated Hot Entertainment!
