Song choice
The Buccaneers draw on their experience to know which songs work best live for different events. Once your booking is confirmed we’ll ask you if our plan suits (eg for a wedding - we play feel good fun tracks for all ages to help brides and grooms celebrate their big days with big parties!). We know the tracks that will go down a storm. If you have a couple of favourites or so, then you can let us know what they are too. At the event itself, The Buccaneers use their experience to create a slightly organic setlist so that if your guests are particularly enjoying a rock n roll number from the 50s for example, and its got the dancelfoor heaving - we might play another one straight off to keep your guests on their feet. The Buccaneers high level of skill and musicianship allows them to adapt setlists this way & this is one of many factors that has helped us build a solid reputation as a hard working party band.

Professional Sound and Visual Image
The Buccaneers only perform with top of the line audio equipment & instruments. They perform with a leading 2000 watt active PA system by Electro-Voice. Brands of instruments and amplification used by The Buccaneers are nothing but top level too and include Gibson, Fender, Faith, Tanglewood, Blackstar, Aguilar, Boss, Tama, Zildjian, Line-6 & TC-Electronics (& that’s just for starters). The band are also equipped with superb LED lighting that provides both the stage and dance floor with a brilliant array of colours for you and your guests to enjoy.

The Buccaneers Dress Code
The Buccaneers are used to playing at all manner of events and will always dress accordingly. As standard we’ll arrive in smart attire suitable for weddings. For more informal events we offer a relaxed look too so you can book confidently knowing that we will be looking the part for your event.

Which lineup is right for you?
The biggest sound of The Buccaneers comes in the form of the 5-piece band with the addition of their fantastic keyboard player. Delivering strings, brass, synths, pianos and more; this enhances the sound to provide further depth and punch to the music. This addition adds to any event large or small and delivers a powerful sound from five energetic musicians.

Our 4 piece band is the core of the Buccaneers outfit. The 4 piece band consists of lead vocals (& guitar), lead guitar, bass guitar & drums. It’s the foolproof 4 piece rock and pop lineup that’s packed full of energy, vocal harmonies and feel good fun. Perfect for tighter budgets, and still guaranteed to pack out the dancefloor with feel good hits.
