Catch 22 are a fun, energetic, talented and award winning wedding & party band. Made up off professional Ba(Hons) degree musicians who actually work in the music industry, Catch 22 can provide the soundtrack to your perfect day. With a vast repertoire ranging from 50's Rock 'n' Roll to modern hits fresh from the charts Catch 22 can keep your dance floor filled from your first dance to the last. This may be the reason Catch 22 won South West's best wedding band 2016! Catch 22 provide both Female & Male vocals and run a click system which means we can perform alongside prerecorded orchestras and brass sections allowing us to produce a huge sound. It also helps us with a unique sound and the ability to play songs many bands could not such as our infamous 90's MegaMix!! Although Catch 22 excel at weddings and private functions they are a 'go-to' band for holiday parks such as Haven, Park Dean, Park Resorts, John Fowler & Hoburne. They have also performed for many reputable companies & corporations (both local and national) and are used extensively to entertain troops for various army functions throughout Wiltshire. * Guest requests and first dance - Catch 22 will happily learn and play your first dance or special song request. We also have a guest request page on our web site allowing guests to pick their favourite song. * Free Disco Music - Catch 22 have a wide range of DJ playlists to help keep the party going before, in between and after our sets. We can also happily play your own playlists. * Full Stage lighting - From making your dance floor look romantic and sparkling to a full on rave Catch 22 have a wide range of lights, lasers and smoke machines to bring your venue to life! * Pro Musical Equipment - Catch 22 are now using the latest equipment in music technology. From state of the art hybrid drum kits to custom made guitars and wireless units Catch 22 will have a crisp professional sound regardless of venue. We ha a 2.5k Mackiee speaker system for smaller venues, a 3.5k EV system for standard venue or we can combine them for large venues and marquees. * Video Highlights/Vlog - Learn what happened in the lead up to your wedding or event and all the inner workings of the band with your band vlog. Relive the highlights and bad dancing of your night with our video highlights recorded professionally from our Allen and Heath desk and multiple HD cameras. Remember most videographers and photographers leave after the first dance. You wouldn't want that out of tune singing and dated dance moves from your guests forgotten about? * Free Consultation/Support - Did you meet your wedding or party planner face to face? Have you only met your guests online? Have you only seen pictures of your food? I'm sure in most cases the answer is no so Catch 22 would really like to get to know you and understand how important music is for your wedding or party. Depending on what services you require we could be spending a huge percentage of time at your wedding. We believe both sides will feel better and understand how to get the best from each other with a meeting. Its also a great chance to ask any questions you are not sure off. * Value for Money - Catch 22 put passion before price. Although it is our livelihood and we have expenses we will always be willing to go the extra mile. *Peace of Mind - Catch 22 use PAT tested equipment, have public liability insurance and use contracts to protect both parties. We also have an extensive pool of dep players incase of injury or illness. * And if you're still not convinced - It sounds a bit corny or cliche but we are hugely passionate about what we do. This passion is not only for music but for people, fun, laughter and life. Nothing makes us more happy than when we see a crowded dance floor. If we didn't make a wedding or party the best we could for all involve we would take it very personally. It would be like the end of the world for us! Even after successful gigs we look back and see what we can improve. We are always trying to better ourselves and making someones night is the ultimate high for us. People often say 'If money was no object, what would you do?'. Well... We are already doing it!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We are not a band, We are a show. Our set is very interactive and one you will remember. We've worked hard to come up with a set that can include everyone both young and old.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have played many venues up and down the country including; Shrivenham Defency Academy, Haven, Parkdean & Hobourne sites.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

All the artists that we perform covers of have influenced us to some extent, we all love a bit of Queen!

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

We have played a few festivals in front of 2000-3000 people, these have always been fantastic fun!

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level

Do you have different line-up options?

Our flagship is a 5 piece line up. This includes 2 x singers (Male and Female) supported by Drums, Bass, Guitar and our digital orchestra and light show. We are also available as a 4 piece with just one singer. For smaller events you can book the two singers as a duo or add in guitar for a trio.

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer an iPod playlist for free. We find that with a good band, a Dj is an unneeded expense.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance! Please note we will need a 20min window to check instruments and do a sound check.

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

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

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. In fact, we are one of the few bands to use a light show rather than standalone lighting. We usually require a minimum of 5 by 3 meters of space to perform.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list, there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn, we are happy to do this for you, but please contact us with enough time in advance.

Catch 22 was the shining light of our event. We ran a Mixed Tag Rugby Festival for adults with a DJ, Food Stalls and a Bar on a rainy day! After our awards ceremoney Catch 22 took to the floor for two hours and they stole the show! So professional and an outstanding performance!

Hello, Thank you so much, you were wonderful! Pete asked me to pass on his thanks for letting him take on Matts drums, that was the first time he had been on an electric set! Will send you any professional photos when we get them and are you happy for me to pass on your details to Cumberwell Park as they were very impressed! Hope you have caught up on some well deserved rest and we will look out for some of your public gigs and come and support you. Claire x
