Pump Up The 90s! are a fully live 90s band providing up to 3 hours of epic 90s tunes! They have shared the bill with 90s legends Judge Jules, Artful Dodger, Danny Rampling, Five, Liberty X, S Club 7, K Klass, Ultrabeat and N Trance and have performed live on stage backing 90s house diva Angie brown and the ‘Queen of Rave’ Rozalla. These guys are the real deal and highly qualified to bring the decade back in roaring style.
Featuring stunning vocals from 90s rave-child Debbie-Ann (yes, she was at the first ever Dreamscape!) the band regularly perform to audiences in their thousands. Supported by a sound and lighting rig Manumission would be proud of Pump Up The 90s! will take you back to the days of Boom Shake the Room, and ensure the room is fully ‘shaken’.
The band offer two packages: Their live 90s Dance Show delivers the best euphoric dance tunes, house classics and rave anthems re-voiced into fresh new arrangements for the 21st century. Their Nostalgia Show delivers a unique blend of 90s dance, Britpop and chart tunes guaranteed to bring back those ‘old skool’ 90s vibes.

We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
How much stage space do you require?
We require at least 150 square feet (say; 10ft depth, 15ft width) for us to set-up. For the best visual/audio results it is best we play down the ‘length’ of the room (so we would be at one end of the room, facing the other) with the dancefloor immediately in front of us.
What are your power requirements?
There should be a minimum of two 13 amp plugs near the staging area. If power is located elsewhere, the venue may need to provide extension leads to run power nearer our location. If the venue uses a generator this must be well grounded (to avoid electrocution!), voltage regulated (so no power spikes can damage our equipment) and a minimum 5kw (to safely run our equipment).
Timings – What works best?
Our typical ‘on-site’ times are between 5.30pm and 12.30am (including set-up and pack down time, accommodating a midnight finish). If you require us any earlier or later, no problem, but this will may incur a small charge. In order to maximise the dancing we suggest placing the band as late as possible and around other events you may have (buffet, fireworks etc).
The get-in, set-up and soundcheck takes approximately 90 minutes. In order to load-in we will require an area where we can park for at least 20 minutes (without risk of getting a ticket!) – please note we often bring three cars to a local event. We will also require an unobstructed passageway to the stage with the distance being no more than 30 metres from our cars. We can accommodate a small numbers of stairs, but where we are required to perform on a higher or lower floor we would request a lift.
Can we use your equipment?
Once we are on site we are at your disposal. If you wish to use our PA equipment for any other purpose, no problem. However, use of our instruments/guitar amplifiers would not be allowed (as these are considered ‘breakables’). We also no longer allow DJs or bands to use our equipment as they can potentially drive the PA too loud and damage it. Please bear in mind we no longer use radio mics (as they have too often picked up the local taxi company during a gig!).
Band and DJ repertoire – Do you take requests?
Whilst we have a large library of music for our DJ sets, it is by no means exhaustive. If there are any tracks that you definitely want played on the night we recommend that you provide these on either a memory stick or CD. Some clients in the past have provided their own playlist on a laptop or iPod, this is no problem at all – we can plug this directly into our PA. If you would like the band to play a song for you (say, for your first dance), no problem. We can often provide this service for free (providing the song suits the band and is easy to learn), or for a small charge. All we require is a little notice (two weeks minimum) to learn it.
Do you require a changing area?
When we arrive we will typically be in our ‘civvies’ (as lugging equipment can be a messy business!), we therefore require an area where we can get changed into our stage clothes. This should be big enough for five people, and ideally secure (so we can leave our belongings there whilst we play). Please note, venue toilets are not an option (these can be quite ‘messy’ by the end of the evening!).
Will you require food and drink?
As we are typically away from home between 10-12 hours when at an event the band will also require some form of hot evening meal and soft drinks whilst on site (at no extra cost to the band). The band do not have any allergies and there are no vegetarians etc.
Do you have insurance?
The band hold £1,000,000 public liability insurance and all equipment is checked annually via the PAT process. Certificates are available upon request.
