If you're looking for a band for your wedding, party or corporate event, you've come to the right place. We've been featured in Time Out, You and Your Wedding magazine, Brides Magazine (they called us one of the top function bands in the UK) and many more besides. Our corporate client list includes major names like Tesco, Virgin and the BBC.

Widely recommended

Every event we do comes from a recommendation. We're often featured on websites and in magazines, but we don't advertise. We know we're only as good as our last performance. So we're well organised, punctual, and we put on a great show. Take a look at what our clients say.

Reasonably priced

Great musicianship, a superb show... and very reasonable prices too. It's the secret of our success. Our bands start from either a three or four piece, including vocals, guitar, bass and drums. But you can expand that up to as many as 12, with a female singer, backing vocalist and a full horn section.

Famous names

Over the years we've had some very famous "guest vocalists" including Robbie Williams, Michael Ball, Rob Brydon, Ant & Dec, Christian Slater, and Westlife. We've also had some famous names in the audience, from Gordon Brown, Martin Clunes and Sandy Toksvig to the Queen and Princess Anne.

Amazing venues

We've played in some of the world's most beautiful and prestigious venues including the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, The Natural History Museum and St Paul's Cathedral in London, the Al Midan Amphitheatre in Oman, Villa Aurelia in Rome, the Hasselbacken in Stockholm and Champagne de Castellane in Paris.

Dewson Entertainments

Dewson Entertainments started out many years ago as The SERIOUS Hat Band. We made records, went on the radio and the television, and toured up and down the country in a beaten up old van.

Gradually we started to play more and more private gigs. So we decided it was time to specialise. Now we have three different bands, made up of hand-picked excellent musicians, and between us we perform at over 300 events a year.

We play at weddings, parties and corporate events, across the UK and around the world. Recent highlights include travelling to Muscat to perform for the Sultan of Oman. We've played venues as big as Earls Court and Alexandra Palace, and as small as our friend Dave's front room. So you know we're very adaptable.

We're not an agency

Dewson Entertainments doesn't just represent bands from a distance. We employ some of the finest musicians in the country, and control every aspect of the work, from the equipment they use to the songs they play. It's how we maintain our musical and professional standards. Every band member knows how important it is to be organised and punctual, and they all share our dedication to putting on a great show.
