This is where it all began. Ed Dewson started The SERIOUS Hat Band when he was a music student at Keele University. They travelled the country in a beaten up old Transit van, looking for fame and fortune. Now they travel the country entertaining crowds at parties, weddings and corporate functions – and always arrive in a shiny new van.


Amazing clients

The SERIOUS Hat Band has performed over 3000 gigs, from intimate weddings to large charity gala events. They've played to over 6000 sailors at Cowes Week, and entertained charity and corporate clients including the BBC, Tesco and MacMillan Cancer Support. They’ve performed for Princess Anne at the BUNAC Anniversary Event, and played with some very special “guest vocalists” including Robbie Williams, Rob Brydon, Westlife and Michael Ball.


The Boss

As well as being the founder of Dewson Entertainments, Ed is also lead singer with The SERIOUS Hat Band. With "the boss" at your event, you know it's in safe hands

[the top hat band] got together in 1998, and quickly began to build a list of very happy clients including Virgin Atlantic, Price Waterhouse and Red Bull. They performed for the Queen at the Y2K Celebrations. But perhaps their proudest achievement was playing three fabulous weddings for three lovely sisters, Jenna in July 2008, Charlotte in June 2010, and Lucy at the Chateau de Clerbise in Bordeaux in August 2014.


Loads of experience

[the top hat band] have played over 2000 weddings, functions and parties, right across the UK. They’ve performed at Knebworth House, Alexandra Palace and the Natural History Museum in London... but they're just as happy playing a wedding or birthday party as they are at a big corporate event.

Sykes is a bit different from the other Dewson Entertainment bands. They're just as talented and professional, and they always put on a brilliant show. But Sykes is fronted by a female lead singer, and backed by some of our best musicians. So if your favourite songs are by Kylie, Ellie Goulding and Adele, perhaps you should consider booking them for you event.


Best of both worlds

Of course, if you want both male and female singers, you can do that simply by adding a male singer to Sykes, or a female singer to The SERIOUS Hat Band or [the top hat band].
