The Clink are a lively four-piece band bringing you the best music from the 60s to the present day.

  • Highlights
  • Male and female lead vocals
  • Pre-programmed party playlist provided between live sets
  • Acoustic set available to accompany your daytime proceedings


Based in Manchester, in the North West of England, the band can travel to most places in the UK and are happy to accommodate any requests regarding length and number of sets, which songs to play and can even learn a song specifically for your event if you’d like them to. They can also play recorded background music through their PA between sets if required - possibly saving you the expense of a DJ. If you would like an acoustic option for a wedding breakfast or champagne reception, the band offer this for an additional fee.

With wonderful vocal harmonies and keyboards, along with guitars, they produce a full, energetic sound.

  • Great band with rich vocals & harmonies for a full sound
  • Energetic, reliable & truly live (nothing is recorded!)
  • Extensive range of songs from the 60s to the present day
  • Choice of band attire - casual, stripy or smart
  • Excellent value for money
  • Over 50 years of professional experience between them
  • Background recorded music available free of charge
  • Completely self contained with PA & lighting as standard
  • Acoustic option available - The whole day's music covered

The band represents great value for money and have worked hard to create a big sound. All members of the band sing and there are both male and female lead vocals. With keyboards as well as guitars and the rhythm section there is great variety to the sound meaning the band can cover a huge range of songs.

The band often dress in black and white stripy T-shirts which makes them really stand out from the crowd, but of course if you’d like them to dress ‘up’ in smart outfits or ‘down’ more casually then that’s easily done too.

The band is completely self-contained and has a PA system suitable for up to about 300 people (depending on the size of the venue) and stage lighting. If the event will host more than 300 people then they can also hire in a larger PA.

The band carries public liability insurance up to the value of £10 million (which can be inspected upon request). All of the band’s equipment is PAT-tested.

The Clink were absolutely brilliant. Pretty much everyone in the room was up dancing and having a brilliant time. The large variety of songs they played, the personal spin they put on the songs, their expertise and superb musicianship, as well as the energy and enthusiasm they put into the performance all ensured it was a superb evening. We enjoy our music and had high expectations from the reviews and information we had found on the webpage, but the band exceeded all of them. We couldn't recommend them highly enough and are already thinking of potential occasions to have them back here again soon! Many, many thanks.

Martin and the guys were brilliant and very professional, even with the wedding in a tipi (in the good ole weather of a British summer) they made no complaint and set everything up fast and quietly. The sound was fantastic - all the guests remarked that it was the best wedding band they have ever heard and I most definitely agree with my guests - they were absolutely brilliant the dance floor was always packed even at the beginning of the night!!! They were absolutely amazing and would thoroughly recommend them to everyone!! Thanks again The Clink!!

Fantastic! The band were brilliant, I can't praise them highly enough. Everyone loved them and I think they topped the wedding off, the dance floor was full for both of their sets. They were friendly, prompt and their set up looked amazing and was a great focal point for the room. I would highly recommend them for any occasion :)
