Claire Dooley

Event: Wedding
Location: Manchester

Really good from start to finish, both the live and DJ sets were really good and had everyone up dancing. Good variety of genres that’s suited everyone’s taste. Band members were really friendly and came to ask us whether everything was to our satisfaction and made every effort to ensure we were enjoying ourselves during their performance.

Location: Derbyshire

After seeing the Lively Up Duo play in Sheffield almost 2 years ago and then watching the guys play in their regular 5-piece band, we knew we needed them to play at our wedding! We had the Duo - Matt and Robbie - to play during our drinks reception, and the 5-piece in the evening. Having these guys play at our wedding was one of the biggest highlights of the day! Their music and energy is so infectious and makes you want to smile and dance! All of our wedding guests said how incredible the band was and it was amazing how every generation loved them! The guys themselves are very lovely and genuine people and we felt they were just as excited to play at our wedding as we were excited to have them! We can’t rate these guys highly enough and we would definitely recommend them for any special occasion! Such incredible talent, we can’t wait to see them again soon!

    Can I have some laid-back live music in the afternoon before the evening party band? Of course! For an additional fee, we can provide a 1-hour afternoon set by our Duo. This could be for a drinks reception or wedding breakfast. Feel free to check out our Lively Up Acoustic Duo profile page for videos and sound clips.

    What is the difference between the two trio options? If you're looking for the classic trio experience with a super funky and soulful sound, our "Trio with bass" option is the one for you. If you're looking for something more exotic that will get your guests talking (but is no less danceable thanks to our 8-string guitar/bass), then go for our "Trio with congas" option. 

    Do you take song requests that aren't in your repertoire? Certainly! We do make a charge for learning songs as we need to learn and rehearse your chosen songs to fit our style.

    Do you need any equipment? Only somewhere to plug in - we travel everywhere with our top-of-the-range PA and lighting system.

    How much space do you need? We're very compact. The Quintet can fit into a space as small as 4m² and the Duo into 2m².

    What happens in between sets? For evening performances, We are happy to provide music up until midnight when we're not performing, which means you have music right the way through your evening.
