Celebrity has a wealth of experience performing at the very highest profile events at venues in London such as The Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair, The four Seasons in Canary Wharf and The Savoy on the Strand for clients such as Louis Vuitton, Rolex and BMW to name just a few. The versatility of the band means that they are not only ideal for corporate events but also for weddings and civil partnerships, university balls, birthday parties and barmitzfahs, awards ceremonies and festivals. They have also proved to be very popular with the British Military and are engaged by the SAS, RAF, Army and Navy on their major events throughout the year.

We loved the band and everyone commented how great they where, my only issue was our dance floor wasn’t big enough!!

If I could give these guys a 10 I would. They went over and beyond for the day. Everyone was on the dancefloor the whole time. If you're looking for a top of the line band that won’t disappoint then these guys are it. I can’t wait to organise another function just to have them perform. Out of this world!

I can’t thank you enough for getting it so right. You were fantastic! We had a full dance floor from start to finish and you managed to pitch it perfectly for our delegates, they absolutely loved it. I’ve received some really positive feedback from senior staff who said it was the best Congress party they had been to so thank you. The service we received in the run up was great and you were more than accommodating with all of our odd little requests! Would 100% recommend you guys!

Fantastic band. They got everyone on dance floor and kept them there. The singers were amazing and the brass section took it to another level. Acoustic set earlier in day was equally excellent and the guests were full of praise all evening long. They were easy to deal with too (thanks to Mat) and they coped admirably with late running as they were able to set up quickly and get going. Can't rate highly enough!

Back from honeymoon now. Celebrity were there ahead of time and got on with setting up without any effort required from us which was great as we were busy enjoying our big day. The musicality of the band is fantastic. They were all very friendly and Mat was very helpful in the run up to the big day. Overall, everyone loved the music and they got the party dancing! Thanks to them all for a stunning performance having traveled from up North down to sunny Somerset and back on the same day. Value for money - I'd say so!

Thanks for your email and thanks for your help, you made everything very easy in the run up to our wedding and it was a pleasure to deal with you. Celebrity were brilliant, we've had so many comments on their music and enthusiasm and the dance floor was full all night. They are real professionals and were lovely with it, and really made the party happen. Thanks.

Dear Warble, I am writing to thank you for helping our Oscars Night run so smoothly at the Walkers Stadium last Friday. The event was a real success and everyone enjoyed themselves and the great music provided courtesy of Celebrity. Our 400 guests really enjoyed the music and the band arrived promptly and behaved professionally at all times. I would be delighted to use your services again and will be recommending you to the partner organisations with which we work. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Matt and the rest of Celebrity for helping make our evening so special! Thanks again — you are both stars!

We hired Celebrity for our wedding and they were fantastic! Everyone loved them, with many people commenting how good they were. The dance floor was always full and the way they blend one song into another means there’s no opportunity to stop dancing! We were very happy with them. We weren’t able to thank them at the end of the evening so please pass on our comments.

Celebrity Party
The party band produces a truly fantastic sound and is perfect as the main evening’s entertainment for any event. The band will perform for up to a total of two hours of live music, and its at the clients discretion whether the format is 2 x 45 minute sets, 2 x 60 minute sets or 3 x 40 minute sets.

Acoustic Sets (Guitar & Female Vocals)
Celebrity offer an acoustic Duo option with guitar and female vocals which is perfect to create a laid back and contemporary feel to your drinks reception or dinner. The band will perform for up to 2 x 40 minute sets.

Celebrity Jazz
The versatility of the members of Celebrity means that they are just as experienced performing Jazz Standards, as they are party tracks, and are able to offer the Celebrity Jazz option. Dine in style whilst being entertained by the refined sounds of Celebrity Jazz. The Duo, Trio or Quartet is able to cover a full range of cool Jazz Standards which will add sophistication to any event. The band will perform for up to 2 x 40 minute sets.

DJ Option
As standard, Celebrity provide a laptop DJ service so that your guests are kept fully entertained when the band is not performing live. They have a huge amount of popular songs and they mix them as they would be by a traditional DJ. They will make basic announcements, and take requests from guests on the night. You can even let us know in advance if you have any favourite songs and they will make up a playlist specially for your event.

Dress Code
The band will always dress very smartly as standard unless a more casual look is required by the client. Please just let us know what you require for your event and they will be as flexible as possible to try and meet your requirements.

PA Options
As standard Celebrity uses top of the range audio equipment which is installed and operated on each engagement by our very own team. Because the band is fully engineered this ensures the perfect sound mix for each and every event. The standard rig is ideal for events up to 250 people or so in the function rooms you find in hotels and venues up and down the country, allowing competitive prices and excellent value for money. For larger weddings and corporate / military events, they can provide a top of the range 5000 watt PA system with engineer which is suitable to perform to a room of anything up to 500 guests. Larger systems are available on request to cater for any size of event. After gaining entry to the performance area, it takes a total of 90 minutes to be fully set and ready to perform.

Working with Sound Limiters
The band is regularly booked to play at events where the venue has some restrictions placed on the amount of volume which is allowed during the performance. Usually there is a decibel meter fitted in the room which is connected to the power supply that the band is asked to use. This is absolutely no problem for the band to work with.

Lighting Options
As standard Celebrity uses the Acme cabaret colour pro light system. This produces 4000 watts of stage lighting via 8 x 500 watt bulbs. The system allows a flood of light of numerous colours or can be programmed to move with the rhythm of the band. The equipment is very compact and so can be used in almost any space. For larger events, the band can supply a popular range of intelligent and generic lighting from manufacturers such as Avolites, Martin Professional, Clay Paky, CCT, and Thomas and complementary special effects such as smoke and haze which can greatly improve the impact of the lighting. Set up time around 120 minutes.
