About this Act

In a situation that is not as uncommon as you might think, Twist of Fate were borne out the mother of all inventions, necessity. They came together as an emergency wedding band for a pal who had another band cancel on them. With the 3 days they had, they spent long hours in the studio learning over 40 songs and practicing to make sure that a slick act showed up on the night. Needless to say, they aced it. After this success, the band, who still had no name at the time, were asked to do a few more weddings and decided to carry on. 

This excellent 4 piece piece have a great repertoire of pop, rock and soul classics and cover acts such as The Buggles, Elvis and Daft Punk among others and in fact now have over 150 songs to call on so will be able to cater for all tastes.

Another string to their bow, is the facility to bring in a session violin player they work with so they can add around 60 minutes of ceilidh music into their set. They can also add a session female singer in for anybody wanting both male and female vocals.


"Well I never thought I'd see the day! My uncle David (who never dances) up on the dance floor. Our guests looked like they had been at an extreme exercise class by the end of the night. We are so glad we opted for Twist of Fate as our band, so helpful and really made our night special."

"Sarah and I wanted to send you this card to thank you for all your hard work in relation to our wedding. You went down a storm and we have had so many compliments about you. We attach a picture which we thought you might like (see Sarah and Stephen's wedding in pics). Please let us know if there is anything which we can do to help you out in the future in terms of reviews or if anyone would like a reference about you. 

Thanks again."

Stephen and Sarah, Windermere, March 2015

"Twist of Fate are not a band who go through the motions when up on stage, they are a band who love what they are doing and their enjoyment is infectious they will have your guests dancing all night. I think the band loved it just us much as the wedding guests"
