Four Members: Two guitarists, Bass and Drums plus The Floorfillers all sing!

MAT (Vocals / Bit and Bobs)
Writes music for TV. If you've watched Wife Swap you've heard him. In a past life he's toured with Marillion, taught Samba drumming to thousands of people across the globe, written music for dance & film and has made a few CDs with his Brazilian fusion group.

MIKE (Guitar / Backing Vocals)
Mike has played guitar in so many party bands he's forgotten most of them, but along the way, he's played rock, soul, Motown, blues, rock 'n' roll, punk and reggae all over the UK. Career highlights include meeting Mike Oldfield in a petrol station, and getting shouted at in the street by Roy Castle. Oh, and playing at Glastonbury. When he's not playing guitar, he's probably asleep.

DAVE (Bass / Backing Vocals)
Dave has worked with Gong, The Steve Hillage band, Bill Nelson, Isaac Guillory, Michael Kamen, Dave Gilmour and Andy Sheppard amongst others and has composed themes and incidental music for film and television. Musician magazine described Dave as a “remarkable bass player".

ROGER (Drums)
Roger started his musical career playing in miners clubs in County Durham and Newcastle and entertaining the most demanding of audiences! Since then he has performed in countless original and function cover bands around the country including Beatles tribute band Twist and Shout, playing  alongside bands like The Merseybeats and Dave Berryerry.

The Floorfillers were fantastic! Just what we needed for our summer family hog roast. They were punctual and polite, professional and easy to have around. The sets they performed were diverse and very entertaining and everyone I have spoken with since told me how much they thoughroughly enjoyed their music. We would highly recommend this band and would book them again for a future event.

How long do The Floorfillers play?
Normally, 2 x 1hr sets but this flexible and negotiable.  We can also perform an additional acoustic set for a modest fee – this is ideal as background music when drinks/canapés are being served.

How late can the Floorfillers play until?
Our on-site schedule as standard is 5.30pm - 12.30pm - however we appreciate that every day is different and we are happy to offer early load-ins and late curfews at additional cost.

Does the band do requests?
The Floorfillers have spent many years making sure that every gig is a night to remember, so the band chooses its material very carefully and practises till its cooking!  This means that playing requests on the night can be tricky – but feel free to choose any songs from the song list and the Floorfillers will do their best to make sure those songs are included in the set.  Equally, if there are songs in there that make your blood boil just let the band know and they won’t get played.

Can the Floorfillers play our first dance for us?
Yes.  For a modest additional fee, the band are happy to learn and perform any song just for your first dance.  

Can the Floorfillers provide music before and after they play?
Yes, the band will provide pre-show and interim music free of charge.  The band can also provide post show music for  a modest additional fee.

How long does Off The Record take to set up?
We normally like to allow up to 2 hours. However, under certain circumstances this can be reduced to about an hour or so.

Is the band insured and safety tested?
Yes, The Floorfillers holds full public liability insurance and equipment is PAT safety tested.

Do The Floorfillers have any specific requirements?
The band need a couple of power sockets and an area big enough to play in (around 4m x 4m is about right).  It is also customary to provide food, soft drinks and a room to get changed in.

Does then band need to be advised of anything before the event takes place?
