Big Phat Jukebox Review I booked the Band for my 65th Birthday Private Party & my Stepdaughters 37th Birthday, at The Old Works Desborough having seen previous gigs and they did not disappoint. The band play a variety of Jukebox hits, new and old which I knew their sound would appeal to all my guests of various ages. The band played three sessions as I requested and were more than value for money. All my guests had a great night and loved the band. They even covered some songs at my request not on their hit list. They are a very tight band with great vocals from Kyle who also gets involved with the guests. Big Phat Jukebox are a fantastic sound and great for any Party, would highly recommend. There is footage on their web site although if in any doubt, would recommend calling into one of their gigs also advertised on the bands website.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

People love our "Jukebox' factor! IE we have some great standards with a few exciting surprises thrown in; we're also known for our stage energy and whopping vocals!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Although we're all individually experienced, in our first year, 2022, we played live at lots of pubs and clubs to tighten up the band, we still play a few as prospective clients can come and see us play live before booking. We've also played for private parties and Corporate events and have plenty booked for 2023

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Annie Lennox, Liz Fraser, Newton Faulkner, Howard Jones, Doris Day, Evanescence Paul McCartney – Bass

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

A large family/friends party of 200 people to celebrate the granting of planning permission to build a new house on private land

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Our reputation is important to us and we absolutely strive to be the format you see here on Encore. In a rare occurrence when our singer, Kyle is ill we will source a dep singer for you of the same quality ( it's never had to happen yet though!)

Do you have different line-up options?

Big Phat Jukebox is a 5 piece band of quality musicians who are all involved in other musical line-ups and so are well used to being able to work as a duo or trio with either acoustic or with back-up music.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We know that timings may vary on the day; we will be as flexible as possible to make everything work for you

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes this is a normal request and we have play lists ready. You can even hire our 'baby jukebox'!

How much time do you need to set up?

We need around an hour and a half to set up and sound check. As soon as the pa is on we can play music while we sort everything else out. If you have events in the same room eg a wedding we always endeavour to set up early or in as discreet way as possible.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

You can see our set lists and let us know your favourites; we'll do our best to make that work for you

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes everything we need to bring with us is included in the quote

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We love to hear about your special songs and first dances. We may already know it but, we're happy to learn 1 - 2 new songs for you in advance.
