About this Act

The Gifted have created an exceptional sound & stage show and continue to rival the biggest and best acts around the globe. Consisting of the finest session musicians, The Gifted have performed at over 200 weddings, corporate events and private parties in he last year alone and cover all the biggest hits from the 50's through to the modern day.

The band constantly update their repertoire to keep up with the changing times and ultimately offer the same amazing lead vocals, top notch equipment and outstanding musicianship that you'd expect. These guys aren't just another 'Boring' function band, when not performing as the Gifted these accomplished musicians can be found appearing in a West End theatre pit or alongside named artists including Dave Grohl, Pulp & Westlife.

The Gifted are available with different size line-ups to suit you, your function and your budget and they work as an 8 piece right down to 3 piece party band. The most popular line up is the 4 piece band consisting of 4 lead vocalists, guitar, bass, drums and keyboards although for that extra WOW factor why not augment the band by female vocals & a 3 piece brass section including Trombone, Trumpet & Saxophone. Our Line-ups are very flexible so if the line up you require isn't listed then please contact Freak Music to discuss your requirements.

Apart from the fact The Gifted are incredibly talented and experienced musicians they also offer the following:

No two sets are ever the same; every set is based upon audience reaction or decided with the client in advance.

The Gifted can be increased in size by adding a female vocalist, saxophone, percussion and anything up to a three piece brass section.

The Gifted can supply you with a Jazz/Swing set during dinner or drinks.

Professionally mixed recorded music is available throughout the breaks or why not hire an additional DJ and benefit from 30,000 classic and current hits.

Become the star for the night and augment your evening with a set of bandeoke (karaoke with a live band)

You can leave us to make any technical or logical arrangements with your venue.

The Gifted can provide everything you need for your evening entertainment and use a state of the art PA system delivering a crisp clear sound at a level to suit you & your guests.

Recent Testimonial

"We just wanted to e-mail you to say a MASSIVE thank you for being such a wonderful band and providing such great music at our wedding on Saturday 12th October, at The Cameo Hotel, Copdock near Ipswich (our red and black Steam-punk inspired wedding).

Chris and I had a totally perfect day and the band was a big part of that. Our family and friends all said how much they enjoyed the music and you certainly kept us strutting around the dance floor right up until midnight!

I think one of the band got married a few weeks ago, so I hope that their wedding day was a perfect day to remember. Please pass on our congratulations and best wishes.

Thank you again and we wish you great success in the future. If we have another special event, then we will be sure to contact you."

Kind regards,

Sarah and Chris xxx
