I provide bands for artists and events such as weddings, birthday parties, award ceremonies and many more events, specialising in afrobeat, fusion, hip hop, r&b, jazz, pop, funk and gospel music.
How to book and what’s involved
There are prepared set lists and we can also take song requests from clients. We would need a minimum of 1 week to prepare the performance. Ideally, 2 weeks notice is preferable to organise set lists, musicians and set up rehearsals.
Band for Hire rates
The average band for hire rates are £200 per person with a minimum of 6 people in the band including bass, drums, keyboards, guitar and 1 singer. The sound engineer fee is £350. We will provide all the music equipment.
We can add saxophone and trumpet upon request, and can do instrumental sets without a vocalist too.
We would need a deposit of 50% of the fee before we can commit to anything.
The rate is £150 per person if the venue provides most of the equipment including bass amp, guitar amp, drum kit and PA with a mixer and microphones.
On the day of the event we will arrive early to set up and soundcheck. All equipment is PAT tested and I have Public Liability insurance too.
A quality service is guaranteed.
There are four set variations to choose from:
- 1 x 60 minute set is £120 per musician
- 2 x 30 minute sets is £120 per musician
- 2 x 60 minute sets is £200 per musician
- 3 x 45 minute sets is £250 per musician
With at least a 15 minute break in between sets.

Testimonials from happy clients…
“I booked the Band Summer 2019 to play a large stadium venue at very short notice. I was a bit worried due to the demand list covering technical issues, timing, insurance and, most of all, the Music as the crowd expect good live Soul, Funk, Disco 90s and Afro Beats. The Band were amazing even went the extra and learned Popular Afro Beat songs! The event was great and the crowd loved it. They are professional – Highly Recommended.”
“Daniel is a reliable and solid drummer who always goes the extra mile to learn and practice repertoire. He has a meticulous attention to detail that doesn’t stop with the music. His organisational skills and willingness to help with whatever it takes to get the job done are what sets him aside from many other great players. Daniel’s warm personality and subtle sense of humour make him a joy to work with.”
