The SERIOUS Hat Band
[the top hat band]



Looking for a band for your wedding, party or corporate event? You've come to the right place. Brides Magazine called us one of the top function bands in the UK, and our corporate client list stretches from Arriva to Virgin

Widely Recommended

We're often featured on websites and in magazines, but we don't advertise. Every event we do comes from a recommendation, after another great show. Take a look at what our clients say.

Celebrity guests

We've played with some very famous "guest vocalists" including Robbie Williams, Ant & Dec, Christian Slater and Westlife. We've had some famous names in the audience too, including the Queen and Princess Anne.

Musical Excellence

Ed Dewson isn't just a lead vocalist and front man. He also has a Masters Degree in music, so he knows how to make sure you get the best performance at your event.

Just the right size

Here at Dewson Entertainments, we're always on hand to answer your questions – including at weekends and in the evening. You'll deal with the same person throughout your booking, so they'll know all about your event. And we only have 40 – 50 active bookings at any one time, so you'll never get lost in the crowd.

We'll set you up with your own online profile, so you can Log In and check any details any time. There’s also a Chat Live button down at the bottom of your screen, if you need to talk to Ed about anything.

We loved every song and you couldn't tear our guests off the dance floor if you tried! You were so responsive and reassuring throughout the planning process,which made a big difference, so thank you.

The band were brilliant on Saturday - please pass on our thanks for three great sets and a thoroughly professional performance. Plenty of sore feet from all the dancing on the bar! We wouldn't hesitate to use / recommend again in the future.

Friends of Belmont
Charity Ball

The Top Hat Band were incredibly slick - they read the audience really well and made sure everyone danced all night, from the the moment that came on stage. They are all extremely talented musicians and nothing was too much trouble. I particularly want to thank you for being so flexible with our last minute demands, you were an absolute pleasure to work with.
