The Britpop Show
The Britpop Show

The Britpop Show, (main pic) aka The Girl From Mars, is available as a slightly off the wall wedding band in two formats: a full narrative theatre show or a spectacular live music event. Loosely based on the 1954 B-Movie classic, ‘The Devil Girl From Mars’, this is a female-fronted sci-fi adventure with a soundtrack ranging from Republica, Oasis, Blur, Pulp, Radiohead, and many more Britpop icons…as you’ve never heard or seen them before. With a variable line up you can choose from a line up involving between one and three vocalists (2 female, one male) and even include 2 or more burlesque dancers. All formats of the show include choreography and props, and for larger shows/venues you can expect a UFO drone, snow effects, and a giant robot puppet. Naturally.

Royal Soul (bottom) is a unique wedding duo playing great pop and soul covers, as well as classics and modern hits from a variety of genres in their own laid-back, but funky style. Anything with a groove, a catchy chorus, or an interesting guitar part is fair game for Royal Soul to do their thing with. This all results in a unique repertoire, spanning lots of eras and styles, meaning that when Royal Soul play there’s always something for everyone. Royal Soul are a duo with a difference. Using an electric guitar, a piano/keyboard, and utilising male/female vocals in harmony, the duo creates an infinitely interesting sound; Royal Soul is the perfect act for creating exciting moments at a corporate event, wedding reception, or party, but can also offer laid-back, soulful background music which refuses to be boring or bland.
