About this Act

The Trip are a professional and fun party band for all occasions with a catalogue of songs from a varied mixture of genres spanning the decades. Whatever the occasion, The Trip are a great fit. Between them they have over a decade's experience and have played a variety of events including, weddings, corporate functions, charity events, parties and festivals. They pride themselves in working alongside their clients to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. When you book The Trip all you have to worry about are your dance moves. From Madness to Daft Punk, Elvis to the Specials, Bon Jovi to Soft Cell. ‘Covering great music’ is their motto and that’s certainly what they do, leaving you to sing and dance the night away.

They work very closely with their clients to see exactly what the client wants. The Trip will advise based on their vast knowledge and are very willing to learn new numbers upon request. They like to think of their music choices as a journey through time, covering as many popular genres as possible. They bring a mixture of brand new chart music, classic and modern Rock, Indie Rock, Soul, funk, Brit Pop, Reggae, Rock'n'Roll, Electro Pop and Ska. Experience has taught them that Soul, Rock'n'Roll and Ska always go down well with large groups of mixed ages and tend to play the genres in groups, helping the audience evolve with the band, as the night goes on.
