Who We Are

Wedding Band for HireThis up-front, feel-good band boasts charismatic lead male and female vocalists, lively presentation and a kicking brass section.  Formed in 1997, the band is a popular choice for sporting events, weddings and parties.  It is available in a number of permutations from six to nine piece (includes a sizzling-hot three piece brass section). We are fully self-contained carrying our own state of the art PA and lighting rig. 

Our band members are high calibre performers that have worked as session players at the highest level with an extensive list of artists such as Elton John, Simply Red, Tina Turner, Queen, Van Morrison, Level 42, Westlife, The Temptations, Gloria Estafan, Kylie Mynogue, Desmond Dekker, Bjorn Again, Bad Manners, Basement Jaxx, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Dizzie Rascal, Madness, Girls Aloud, Placebo, Craig David and Jamie Cullum.

"I can safely say you are the best band I have seen at a wedding in my 12 years of being in the business – and a really nice bunch too!" Tom Hibbert, Hotel Manager, Newick Park Hotel & Country Estate, Sussex."

What We Do

The band is extremely versatile and performs the best in pop, rock, rock n’ roll, disco, soul, funk, swing, jazz and blues. We play a selection of the biggest party/feel-good hits from the 50s to the present day and boast an extensive repertoire.

We can tailor-make the music to fit a theme and have played many over the years from School Disco &  Hollywood Nights to funky 70s &  big and bold 80s.  The Melody Fakers are the perfect choice for a private party, wedding, fundraising ball, corporate function or sporting event.

You can choose a selection of songs from our song list or trust us to skilfully create a playlist that is designed to fill the dance floor and keep it full all night long.  And as part of our service we are happy to learn a first dance or special song especially for your wedding or event (subject to band approval).

“We knew they were good (that's why we booked them!) but they surpassed all that!  There wasn't a single moment while they were playing that the dance floor wasn't full to bursting and everyone absolutely loved them!” Toni
