Ultra 45 are a Rock & Pop Cover Band for Hire in London and the South East.
Ultra 45 are a fantastic London-based Funk / Soul / Pop function band, and will appeal to anyone who loves funky music performed exceptionally well. Fronted by Tina and driven by a superb rhythm section, Ultra 45 will bring you a great selection of funky pumping hits, or something more laid back as a 3-piece.
Ultra 45 are available for all events e.g. corporate functions / parties, wedding receptions, private functions etc. and will provide a great atmosphere and a great show that will give no one an excuse not to dance!
Ultra 45 are totally professional, reliable, versatile, talented, and determined to make your event as enjoyable as it can possibly be. Ultra 45 can play in any style, even though funk and soul are the styles they are most often asked to play. Ultra 45 actually love doing the rock / pop stuff, in fact, pretty much anything!!
- Ultra 45 generally perform as a 5-piece band (Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboards) but also perform as a 3 or 4 piece, and sometimes with 6 or more musicians (adding a brass section etc.).

and many more...
Where are you based?
We’re in the London area, but we can travel nationwide (we would have to add appropriate travel / accomodation costs though).
Do you do requests?
We can do any requests you like on the night if we know the songs. It’s best to give any requests a few days in advance though, and then if we don’t already know them we’ll learn them. If you require a large number of requests outside of our normal repertoire there may be an additional charge.
Are you a loud band?
We can play at any volume you like.
Do you bring lights and/or a PA system?
We bring our own lighting system and our own PA system. We have a dedicated sound-man (Adrian) with his own PA for larger events.
Do you require a stage?
A stage is nice, but we don’t need one.
Can we use your PA to play recorded music (CDs, mp3s) before/ between/after the band?
Yes, that’s no problem. We bring an i-Pod with pop/funk compilations on it, or you can plug in your own machine to play your playlist.
How long do you take to set up?
We normally require a 1 to 2 hours to set up, but we know that sometimes party / wedding timings are very tight, so we are flexible. If we have to set up quickly we will endeavour to do so.
Can you set up early in the day?
Yes, we are sometimes asked to set up early afternoon and then come back for the show. This is normally OK but it will depend on the location and may incur some extra costs.
Do you need a room to change / relax in?
Good question. Yes we ideally need a room to change in and to store equipment cases etc. If there really is nowhere available then a discreet and quiet (undercover) area with chairs may suffice.
Do you require food and drink?
We do need some food and drink, yes. Food is the more important one though, especially if we have travelled some distance. We do normally get hot food at gigs, and soft drinks.
How late can you play to?
We can play up to any time, but if after midnight then we will have to charge an additional fee.
Most performances are about 2 hours in length with a break in between, but Ultra 45 can do any combination you wish e.g.
- 2 x 45 mins
- 3 x 40 mins
- 2 x 70 mins etc.
Please Note: The fees indicated below are approximate and based on a central location for each county. They are intended to provide a rough guide only and exact quotes can only be given once the date and exact location of your event have been provided.
