We've been creating live bands since 2011

Our Story

We’re Dave & Dan, two professional musicians with a love for performing live. After years of gigging at events up and down the country, we played alongside a lot of wedding and events bands who we felt lacked a certain something. They were usually great musicians, but they weren’t always great performers. They had no energy, no attitude and no stage presence. We both agreed something important was missing.

We knew there were musicians out there who performed their hearts out at every show, creating that electric energy and ambience you usually only get at a ‘real gig’. So, we set out on a path of our own, searching for likeminded musicians and bands who loved performing, and we launched our own brand of live music for hire. Live music with energy and attitude; live music with that all important something!

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring a higher standard of live music performance to the wedding and events sector. Our bands aren’t wedding bands, or corporate bands, they’re just bands; real bands, with musicians who go out and rock weddings and events for the love of performing live.

Band Factory Studios

Every one of our bands perform the videos you see on our website live in our own recording studio. This is our way of staying real and authentic. We want the bands you see on our website to be a true reflection of what you’re going to see and hear when they’re up close and personal.

Right from the start we wanted to create something fresh and unique, staying away from the outdated function bands playing cheesy versions of Mustang Sally. Our pledge to the gods of music was to create something real and authentic.

Proud to Say We're Different

We’re an independent team that works closely with a handful of live bands. Instead of spreading ourselves thin with hundreds of acts like many live music suppliers, we concentrate our resources on making a very select group of handpicked bands the newest, coolest, most exciting performers available for hire.
