Why Choose 'Band de Jour', a great indie band playing live music at your wedding, function or party...
Here's a bit more information about us...
What we do
Since our formation, we have made sure that our music remains fresh and exciting for us to play - that way we know that it will always be fresh and exciting for you to listen to and enjoy... we will never become one of those bands who just "go through the motions" playing the same old songs week in, week out for months on end.
Many times we've had comments like "I'm amazed you played that song, it's only just come out - I love that one!".
It's also important for you to know that even though we frequently add new material to our repertoire, we will never perform a song unless we're ready to do so - your event is in safe hands with us!
But never fear - we have a wealth of classics that can be dusted off for your event... your challenge will be to resist singing and dancing along.
Despite our apparent youthful looks, we have many, many years of experience performing and running events - you'll want to know that you can relax and enjoy your event rather than panicking about whether the band is going to arrive on time or if they'll be up to scratch.

Well, these are a couple of the reviews that we've had (more can be found by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page):
"My fiancé booked you for my surprise 30th birthday party on Saturday and what a great surprise it was!! Your playlist was brilliant so got people on the floor really quickly and also had such a variety, from indie/rock to the party classics - it catered for everyone - even the Nan's could get up at one point! You even got us involved in the performance, as your backing singers, whilst scary was thoroughly enjoyable and something that I will always remember! My own personal 5 minutes of frame :). Thank you for a great night, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with! Hope you have you perform again!!" Laura and Michael (April 2014)
"I absolutely loved having you play at my party - I am still on a high from it a month later! The music was what really made the evening for me - I don't think I sat down for a single song because every song was better than the last. It was a great mix of music from modern stuff to classics, there really was something for every one of my guests to enjoy. The booking process was very easy and I felt that you put a lot of care in to making sure that things went smoothly on the night- I didn't have to worry about any of the details. It seemed like you genuinely wanted the party to be enjoyable for me, definitely not a case of just turning up, playing and heading off! Thank you so much for putting in the time and care that you did, I will be recommending you to all and sundry!" Laura Cook (Dec '13)
