About this Act

The Hope Street Busking Band began as an acoustic covers act busking on the streets of Liverpool. Very quickly the band began receiving bookings from members of the public who had witnessed the band's talents first hand on the street.

The Hope Street Busking Band play a diverse selection of popular music, both classic and contemporary, delivered in their unique stripped back style. Using just two guitars, simple light percussion, and pitch perfect vocal harmonies the band produce fun, dynamic performances of great songs.

The band are versatile, and can put together a set to suit any occasion - whether you want mellow background music, a lively performance that gets a crowd going, or simply some cheerful entertainment to create a great atmosphere at your venue/event.

With vast gigging experience, having played at weddings and parties, in bars and pubs and at business/corporate events, the band are eager to entertain any who will have them!
