Skaville were one of the high-points of our wedding reception, a week or so on and people are still talking about their set. They were incredibly organised and professional, arriving with all their gear, setting up and managing to sound check very quickly to allow a seamless transition from the meal at what was a very small venue. Once on stage the band were consummate performers. The sound quality was amazing, and they were fun and energetic. Everyone from the bride's 70 year old father to the groom's 14 year old sister were on the dance floor. It is also worth mentioning that the band learned at least two special requests from us in the weeks before the wedding, which they performed faultlessly on the night. Bob was a pleasure to deal with in the run up to the event. Do yourself a favour and hire these guys.

Thanks for a brilliant night last night, everybody said how much they enjoyed themselves. Hope it’s not too long before I can go to another of your gigs. Thanks you were well worth it.

    FAQs

    Skaville is a fully live band and insists on performing without the use of backing tracks. The standard ‘Madness’ line-up consists of kit drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, tenor sax and lead vocals with band backing vocals.The band also offer other line up options which would include either an extra brass player for the full 'Specials' sound, or an additional singer/front man which gives the performance an extra dimension.

    Skaville are happy to negotiate with clients to accommodate their requests and previous gigs have seen us perform as all the above-mentioned line-ups as well as with a three-piece brass section. Typically, sets range from 2 x 45 minutes to 2 x 60 minutes, but again, they try to be flexible catering to the needs of the client.
