Evening Reception The evening entertainment can be provided as a solo acoustic set, by the full band or a combination of both. The first dance can also be performed live and followed by either upbeat acoustic music or raise the roof band sets! An optional DJ set can also be added to the package to keep everybody dancing until the end of the night My repertoire includes artists such as James, The Beatles, Oasis, The Killers, Van Morrison, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Chuck Berry & Bastille. Each song is approached with my own unique style Each package can be made bespoke to your needs, from laid back live lounge style acoustic covers, to foot stomping evening entertainment. I have various speaker systems allowing me to perform in almost any space, whether small or large. Our full band ‘Chris Stocks & The Guardians’ is a professional act with over 70 years’ experience between us, we have individually played everywhere and with everyone. By combining this talent and experience we have created a band that is far from cheesy and fantastic live. I also offer a duo (acoustic, vocals, drums) and a trio (acoustic, vocals, bass, drums) Playing classics old and new along with songs that most bands don't attempt, you will experience a night your guests will talk about long afterwards!

Chris and his band played at our wedding. They had the dance floor full and everyone commented on what a great band they were. They even learnt our first dance song and it was just perfect. Chris has been great in the run up to the wedding, always answering emails quickly and generally being really helpful. I would highly recommend Chris if you are planning any event
