About this Act

SouthWest band are a premium quality Yorkshire wedding band and event band that perform at hundreds of events anually UK wide and around parts of Europe. They are a highly renowned party band that know exactly how to bring the house down with their dance floor filling set lists, expert musicianship, on stage energy & charisma.

They band are most renowned for their big vocal harmony sound. When a new song is introduced into the repertoire it is stripped back to just voices and the harmonies are creatively constructed to give the cover a unique sound. Every member of the band has the ability to sing lead vocal. This gives every song a different flavour, keeping the performance forever interesting! With all this in mind SouthWest believe the most important job of a cover band is to above all else... get the crowd dancing all night! This is the vital job of a party covers band.

SouthWest band believe that these are the key attributes for a top party band:

  •  A completely live performance – real talented musicians performing live on their beloved instruments. No cheating with backing tracks.
  •  An energetic, well known, lively set – at parties most people want to drink, dance and let their hair down. Therefore a band should play up-beat songs through-out the ages that are well known, so your guests can sing along all night and be part of the performance.
  •  Strong musicianship and vocal ability across the band – SouthWest band all sing lead vocals which gives the audience a different flavour of voice depending on the song. This is alongside strong vocal harmonies which are an integral part of the band sound.
  •  Crowd participation & Showmanship – a party band should connect with the audience and put on a show. You aren’t booking a pub band to just play through the songs in the corner, you are booking a professionally rehearsed group of musicians to put on a show that you won’t easily forget! No matter the amount of alcohol :)
