About this Act

The One Hit Wonders - The Bandeoke Band. Sing your favourite song with a live band of professional musicians. Offering around 200 songs there is always a song for every taste and age. If your favourite song is not listed then request it and they will learn it for your event!

They are a proper band. There are no add on musicians or extra players, they practice as a group and know what singers need when getting on stage to sing. With a lyrics screen displaying the words and 2 foldback monitors for the singer, there are no annoying pieces of paper to hold allowing you to just rock out. They do not play to a backing track or click instead they follow the singer, which means they can take the song at your pace, repeat choruses and allow you to milk your moment in the spotlight. This also means that if you get lost or make a mistake then they can go around the riff and bring you back in.

They are professional musicians with a vast amount of gigging experience, including headlining the NEC Birmingham, The Cavern Club and supporting bands such as The Libertines and Pigeon Detectives. When they are not gigging they are music teachers, producers and session musicians. If you have ever wanted to sing with a real life rock band then this is likely to be the closest you will ever come.

The only bandeoke or covers band that allows you to decide their entire set list! With Pick ‘n’ Mix covers you choose what songs you want them to play, simply select your favourites from their song-list. You can even decide the order and request extra songs to be learnt if you wish.

Providing a 5000 watt PA system and fully controlled lighting rig your evening will put most professional venues to shame, and make you feel like a true rock star.

There are no confusing bolt-ons, everything needed to make your night unforgettable is included in the price. Usual sets last 4 hours but the price secures the band for as long as you need. Lighting and sound is included in the price, as is Request a Song and Pick ‘n’ Mix covers.
