Great stage show. The band were amazing and set up quickly and professionally .The Vees were very friendly and extremely well presented. FANTASTIC! They played the type of music I had requested, arrived on time and made my 60th Birthday one to remember. Thank you to the Vees from Vee. Would love to dance to their music again, they were full of energy and so uplifting. If ever they need a couple of dancers we are here!! :-) Thank you so much X

I booked The Vees for my wedding. They were super nice guys, really professional to deal with. They appealed to ALL generations of our wedding guests, and really looked the part. They also put on an exciting live show – I particularly enjoyed the guitarist playing the guitar behind his head! My friend’s little boy went home wanting to be a rock star. Can’t recommend enough!


What is your line up?
The Vees are a three piece rock and roll band who play completely live. The line up consists of drums, bass, guitar, lead vocals and backing vocals. A high quality PA system is used along with a lighting set up.

What do you sound like live?
Of course this is one of the key questions when looking to book a band for your wedding or event. You can view the videos and listen to the audio on the bands profile to hear how the band sounds live. All songs were recorded as live takes at a recording studio in London using analogue equipment and mics. This gives a true representation of how the band will sound on the night.

What happens when you are not playing?
Once the band has arrived and set up, the band can play music through their PA system (which can also be used for speeches if required) They can play modern or vintage style of music, whichever you would like. Music can be played before the set, during the break, and also after the set depending on what is agreed… the band are happy to fit with whatever you wish!

How long do you play for?
The set timings can be tailored to your requirements of course, but the “normal” timing is 2 x 1hr sets, with a 15 minute break in the middle. Shorter sets are also possible, and it can be discussed as to what point in the evening you want the band to play (i.e for a wedding it can be immediately after first dance, or with a gap)

How much do you charge?
Please see the pricing information listed on the profile.

What does your standard package include?
The standard package includes:

  • 2 x 60mins of live music which can be completely tailored around your evening of entertainment.

  • PA system to play music before, in between, and after live shows.

  • Provision of music playlist in between live sets, modern or vintage.

  • Relevant Public Liability and PAT Testing certificates

What about insurance?
Not a problem! The band have full public liability insurance, and all equipment is PAT tested and certified. Certificates can be provided for any venues that require them.

What do you look like when playing?
The Vees pride themselves on not only sounding great, but looking the part as well. The band wear suit jackets and ties to fit with the vintage, retro look. The mics are 1950s style, and the mic stands and amps are styled with fairy lights to add to the vintage look.
