blog featured image

The South of England is home to Wimbledon, scones, and Stonehenge. The South is also home to some of the biggest bands in history. The likes of Rolling Stones, The Clash, Muse and The Jam, were born and raised down South. My point being the South is arguably the best place to find high-energy bands that guarantee to put on a performance of a lifetime.

Warble Entertainment provide their customers with some of the best entertainment available to book down South. Our musicians can perform in all the major Southern counties, including Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Berkshire, Surrey, London, Essex, Norfolk, and Suffolk. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to the bands!

West of England

The West of England consists of the following counties: Bristol, Bath, North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire. The west is also home to some stunning landscapes and equally awesome bands. Let’s check them out! 

Devon – Breakfast for Two

Breakfast for Two are fast becoming one of the top UK wedding and function bands based in Devon! This group of professional musicians will bring you high energy performances that will have guests non-stop dancing to their rock and pop repertoire.

Breakfast for Two are Mark, Ben, Lawrence, and Tom. These four gifted musicians will bring you an awesome performance of popular tunes. Whatever event you have coming up, whether it’s a wedding, conference, or party, you need to look no further for the best entertainment!

Hampshire – The Rayflys

The Rayflys have been busy cultivating a reputation as one of the best vintage cover bands in the UK – and it’s easy to see why. Assembled from six of the most in-demand session performers in the country, Jimmy and the boys bring you an evening jam-packed with soul and swinging rock & roll fun. And their setlist reflects the very best of that!

By booking a band like The Rayflys, you would be guaranteeing the audience a night to remember. With two hours of live music, concert level stage production and a disco/DJ set provided as standard… there’s nothing left for you to do but dance the night away with the rest of your guests!

Gloucestershire – The Jacks

The Jacks are currently one of the UK’s most in-demand function bands available to hire right now. Why may you ask? Simply put, these guys know exactly how to fill a dancefloor!

These four talented chaps originated from Bristol and with their repertoire of rock and pop cover hits from the 1960’s right through to modern-day classics, they are sure to cater for an audience of all ages.

If 2 hours of unbeatable live music entertainment isn’t enough, the lads are more than happy to provide a free DJ service in-between their sets. Meaning the band are available to keep the party going for 4+ hours.

Absolutely amazing! We were the last of our friends to get married so I’ve been to six weddings in the past three years and I think everyone agreed that The Jacks were the best band at any of them! Lovely guys and what a show they put on! They played our first dance song brilliantly and then kept the dance floor full the whole night from then on. If you’re looking for an amazing band, you will definitely not regret choosing The Jacks!

South of England

The South of England consists of the following counties: Buckinghamshire, Sussex, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Surrey and London. Not only home to the capital, but also home to some of the best rock and pop cover bands down south, bands available to hire for all manner of live function events! Let me introduce you to a few…

Sussex – The Indie Killers

Arguably, one of the best bands down south, The Indie Killers love high-energy rock, indie and pop tunes! These lads quite literally eat, sleep, and breathe great music!

Surrey – Gentlemen Of The Road

Gentlemen of the Road is quite a fitting name for a band. Especially for these guys. The five young gentlemen that make up the band spend most of their time travelling all over the country providing a perfect mix of songs for any party.

They have mixed the best of both worlds and have incorporated a fun and energetic acoustic ‘Mumford & Sons’ style set with a full-on party set. What more could you want? For Gentlemen of the Road, it’s a full dancefloor and these lads know exactly how to achieve that.

With a setlist that includes dance floor fillers, from artists such as George Ezra, Mumford & Sons, Avicii, The Killers, Kings of Leon, The Beatles, Arctic Monkeys, and many many more, you’re guaranteed a great night of live music.

London – Soulidify

Although the band are based in London, they have performed in Oman, Italy, Singapore, and France. Just to name a few.

The singers, saxophonists and guitarists will play among the audience, enticing them to join conga lines and engage crowds like something never seen before. In addition, having formed in 2008 from prestigious musical establishments in London, they have grouped some of the country’s finest musicians! You don’t want to miss a live performance from Soulidify!

Soulidify played at our wedding and they were absolutely fantastic! We spent so long trying to find the perfect band and they exceeded our expectations – the dance floor was packed all night and it felt like such a great party. We especially loved the way they interacted with the crowd throughout the night! They were the highlight of our day and people are still commenting on how great they were. Don’t hesitate to book these guys – we went for the 8-piece band and it’s definitely worth having both a male and female singer, plus the sax and trumpet!

The boys were fantastic. Very polite, very accommodating and such great musicians. I hired them to play a welcome home party for my daughter who’d been away in Australia. What an amazingly full sound they have with just the 3 of them. Wonderful!
