Bringing the Good Vibes and Anthems..
Established in 2011, UK four piece The Atomics have been blowing away audiences across the country with their unique mix of feel-good hits and classic anthems. Performing to crowds in their thousands and supporting some of the biggest names in the industry, they have shared stages with the likes of Scouting For Girls, The Feeling, Judge Jules, S Club 7 and The Prodigy at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury, Victorious and Secret Garden Party. Past clients include Aston Villa Football Club, Cheslea Football Club, Barclays, Sainsburys, Claire’s Accessories, Vijay Maliya, Stephen Hawking and Red Bull Racing.
They are a dual male and female fronted band supported by some of the finest multi-instrumentalists in the land. You can expect epic guitars solos, anthemic synthesizers, grooving bass/drums/electronic percussion, MC breaks and three-part vocal harmonies all delivered via a pristine sound system.
Bucking the trend of the traditional private hire band The Atomics have fully embraced modern technology and are one of the only bands in the UK faithfully recreating electronic dance music live. This has seen them become the live backing band of choice for a host of 90s dance and rave legends at festivals, making them the ideal choice for a ‘rave wedding’ or ‘festival wedding’.

Amazing band, absolutely faultless. They played some classic dance tracks and made our party. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
The band created a great atmosphere - Brilliant range of songs which we and our guests loved. Debbie's voice was amazing and they all contributed to a fantastic evening.

Thanks for adding a big chunk of boogie-woogie-funky-wunky-rocknrolly juice to the night! Loved by all and wont be the last time we see you I’m sure.
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). Typical successful timings (for say, a wedding) would look something like this:
5.30pm – Arrive, set-up, soundcheck.
7.00pm – Background dinner or disco music (whilst band get changed)
9.00pm – Band’s first set (followed by interval with disco)
10.30pm – Band’s second set (followed by disco music)
Midnight – Finish
12.30am – Band leave site.
Soundcheck – How long do you need? Do you need to make noise?
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 Atomics hold £1,000,000 public liability insurance and all equipment is checked annually via the PAT process. Certificates are available upon request.
