What makes this band unique is that they play today’s classic anthems as well a few old favorites. The Weekend mix quality with cool and whether you are into Jessie J and Rihanna or The Kings of Leon and Bruno Mars then this band is for you and all of your friends.

The story started with a group of Uni music students performing live gigs in the area just for fun. Each gig would lead to another gig, and then another and while the diary filled up so did the dancefloors!

‘One of the main questions we get asked is can we avoid the usual cheese and play modern awesome songs? You bet we can! There is so much great music around at the moment which isn’t just for kids. My Dad loves Maroon 5, my mum loves Bruno Mars and who doesn’t love singing along to We Are Young by Fun. The reason why we love what we do is because we get to meet amazing people on every gig who just want to have a party and a night to remember and all we have to do is add a little fairy dust!’  Rosie - Singer

And just in case you are worried about there being something for everyone, The Weekend even have a selection of classics as well… you know, the really cool ones!!

They helped make our special day extra special. We would highly recommend you book them. They were also very professional and really polite.

Bronwen Rolls, Events Marketing Manager (PerformanceIn), Corporate Event, London
The Grosvenor House is a huge venue and needs a big act to fill it. The Weekend excelled at not only encouraging all our guests to get up and dance they also worked extremely well with a large audience in an imposing venue without being phased by this 2000 capacity ball room. The preparation was simple and the band worked extremely well with our timings and running order without delay or complaint. I would recommend them to any event manager with confidence.

Stef and Claire Rozycki, Wedding Event, Hampshire

These wonderful people are amazing! Great contact before the wedding to see if they could play our first dance song and they said they could! They even learnt it beforehand so as not to let us down. They were such good fun and very approachable and friendly that we enjoyed every minute with then playing! Thanks so much Will and the Team. Saira xx

Robbie & Becci, Wedding Event, Warwickshire
Just wanted to say that we're getting nothing but excellent feedback from you guys from our wedding on Sunday. The dance floor was packed and everyone was have a proper good boogie. The interaction with the singing, guitar and drums on the dance floor was fantastic!! It's always difficult hiring a band when you've never heard them live but I have no doubt that ourselves, and everyone there, will recommend you!! Thanks for doing what you do best and providing a party!!

Stephanie McMullan, Wedding Event, Wiltshire
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for playing at our wedding on Saturday! You guys were amazing and as a result we have had so many people asking about you it's crazy! You had everyone on the dance floor and I mean EVERYONE, from the 20 year olds to the 90 year olds! Best band I have seen at a wedding in years!! You made it a fantastic party in the evening and the only complaint would be that we wished you could have played for longer!! Can't wait to see the pictures!!!! We will be sure to recommend you to everyone!! Steph and Colin (Rockley Manor 17.08.13) x

Simone Humphries, Wedding Event, Lancashire
We would like to thank The Weekend for their performance on our wedding day, they were brilliant, all our guests said how great they were. They made a great atmosphere and had everyone up dancing, and they made our first dance really special by singing it beautifully. Thank you so much for making our night so perfect!

Daniel Robertson, Wedding Event, Northamptonshire
The whole process from start to completion was very easy... the easiest part of the wedding! I am so glad you recommended The Weekend, they were without doubt the best, every one of the guests loved them (Even the old farmers!). Would absolutely, without doubt, have them at any social function, they were great. PS. They nailed the first dance song! XX

Chris Manlow, Wedding Event, East Sussex
You guys were amazing at Steve and Rhiannon's wedding last night! Everybody was talking about how great you were, such good performers as well as musicians.

Jamie Cole, Wedding Event, Middlesex
Wow!! The Weekend were amazing! We cannot thank them enough! They had the entire room rocking & interacted perfectly with the crowd. So many of our guests complimented us on our choice of band, they really did make the night for us all. A very relaxed but professional approach, our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them. We cannot recommend them highly enough!! Thank you so much!!

Val Bunker, Private Party Event, Gloucestershire
Lively and talented performers who went down a storm on the night - thanks very much! :)

Michelle Tafreshi, Wedding Event, Cambridgeshire
Hi Will, just some feedback for you personally; you guys really made our evening. People literally loved you. So many of my friends were coming up to me on the night saying how awesome you guys were. A few of my friends are pretty musical (and critical) so to hear them say how great you were was really nice for me. Apparently ‘Crazy in Love’ is really hard to play or something so you were getting a lot of respect for that. We’ve never seen you play live before and basically booked you on a whim. So glad we did but you should know that your current video on the internet doesn’t do you justice. You really should do a new one. It’s a shame we didn’t have a videographer otherwise you could have used that! I’ll try to find some decent photos of you guys and tag you on FB in case you want to use them for anything. Also, thanks so much for performing ‘Hounds of Love’! Really made my evening. Very memorable. ‘Creep’ too. Thanks, Michelle

Jason King - Sanofi, Corporate Event, Essex
The Weekend exceeded all expectations. The employees and employees families at this family fun day event loved The Weekend. The set was excellent with a great range of songs including old and current being played and they interacted well with the crowd. I loved that they were able to move around wirelessly and dance on the dance floor with the crowd. I found them to be very professional and I would definitely recommend this band and may use them on a personal note in the future. They are very modern and some of the men loved the eye candy :-)

Chris & Les Gaulton, Wedding Event, Hampshire
The Weekend are GREAT! Their performance was outstanding and really added a touch of brilliance to our special day! They accommodated a later than planned start and tailored their sets accordingly. Really nice guys too - they come highly recommended. As for Warble, very easy to deal with, helpful in recommending alternatives to the band we originally sought (who were booked on the date we needed). Good knowledge of the bands and the types of music they offer. Would definitely recommend to others.

Sally Jones, Wedding Event, Dorset
Really, really fantastic! They were really flexible about setting up, the set was brilliant, exactly what we asked for and I loved the roaming guitarist! Everyone loved them and they were just really, really nice!

Will & Sally Jones, Wedding Event, Dorset
A-Frickin-Mazing!!! All of our bands and entertainment were excellent and The Weekend, as our closers, had some tough acts to follow, but boy did they deliver... and deliver, and deliver! They worked the crowd like seasoned pros and tailored the show to suit the feel of the event. Could not fault them on anything, can not thank them enough! Well done Girls & Guys.

Sophie Harris, Wedding, Oxfordshire
Band were FAB!! Def lived upto expectations. The set through dinner was beautiful and the evening band were great fun. Would definately recommend to anyone! Thanks for a fab night.

Sam Holloway, Birthday Party, East Sussex
Had a really good evening and the band topped it off, they were enthusiastic upon arrival and also very professional making sure all the instruments sounded perfect. The singers sounded great and the whole band got involved with the crowd. Everyone said after the party how good they were and I would definitely recommend them.

Jenny and Mike Williams, Wedding, Devon
You were FANTASTIC!! Everyone has been commenting on how good you were. The dancefloor was packed the whole night and you really made everyone’s night. Thank you personally for making our day very special and entertaining all our guests. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to any one looking for a great band. You are all fantastic. Thank you.

Michael Olsen, Private Party, Hampshire
The band were excellent! They had a great array of songs that were excellently delivered and lots of crowd interaction, which created such a great atmosphere for the evening. The band were very helpful prior to the evening and ensured everything ran smoothly on the night. I would not hesitate to book this band again.

Lizzie Taylor, Corporate Event, London
Warble's service was outstanding. Prompt in responding to emails, helpful and offered great knowledge and advice. The band were fantastic! Extremely talented, professional and friendly. The perfect music for our event. We will most definitely be re-booking for next year. Regards Lizzie Taylor, Head of Marketing

Greg and Sarah Ward, Wedding, Kent
We cannot rate this band highly enough! They had everyone up on the dance floor all night long making sure everyone was getting involved. The girls and Will did a beautiful cover for our first dance, which was just perfect. They had a fab mix of songs in their sets and had no problem in
playing numerous requests on the DJ. They really made ours, and our guest’s night. We are now working on an excuse to book them again!!

Alice Foley, Wedding, Hampshire
Absolutely Fantastic – All of our guests loved them and the dance floor was consistently filled. They are lovely, lovely people, really friendly and were more than happy to fit in with our arrangements. Warble were really helpful and quick to respond. Couldn’t have asked for more. The Weekend made our night and would definitely recommend for any wedding, party or event.

Adam Buckley, Corporate Event, Northamptonshire
We had a great night with The Weekend. They were punctual, friendly and professional. All the staff were thrilled to have such an energetic and fun band. They had a brilliant choice of songs, but thankfully no cheese, which was great. Thank-you so much to the band, I would highly
recommend them for any party or event. Also thank-you to Warble who were very helpful.

Laura Whitehead, Wedding, Berkshire
Absolutely amazing band!!!! They were all so lovely and extremely talented. We had lots of contact from the band leading up to the day. They got everyone up dancing all night long. We’ve had so many comments from our guests on how good the band were. They really were the perfect choice and made our night. Thank-you so much guys I can’t wait to see you again. Laura 

Paul Webber, 21st Birthday Party, Surrey
I booked The Weekend for my daughter's 21st Birthday. Amy and her friends had a fantastic night. The band played the perfect choice of songs for the event and fit it around the arrangements perfectly. Warble were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend both The Weekend and Warble Entertainment.

  • The Weekend provides a PA large enough for most private parties and an outstanding lighting package (suitable for up to 200 guests).
  • The sets comprise 2 x 60 (or 3 x 40) minute sets of dance floor fillers!
  • The band also provide a Free DJ Option and can provide tunes for your party or celebration. Alternatively, the band is happy for you to plug your own iPod into the PA System.

As standard The Weekend perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets.

Because The Weekend want you to have the whole night's entertainment sorted when you hire them, the band offers a FREE DJ option that runs when the band are not performing.

The DJ option is performed by a member of the group operating a laptop with the most current DJ mixing software and party classics on hand to keep the party jumping! The benefits of this service are that your guests are able to make requests for the DJ to play, and with the DJ being a member of the band and sharing their equipment, the space utilised at the venue is kept to a minimum... and so looks very tidy... and leaves more room for dancing!
