About Flame Trees

Cover band
London
An exciting new cover duo using live looping and percussion to create a sound much bigger than you've ever heard from 2 people!

After playing a typical afternoon jazz duo gig at a wedding, we were packing down when a desperate groom came up to us asking us to continue playing for the evening event as the DJ was a no show. We got out all our toys and made some serious noise. The crowd loved us and we had a blast. Then we thought, “hey, we sound like a full band, why dont we do this as a regular thing?” As we have both played in wedding/function bands collectively for 20+ years we bring all the elements of a full piece band into a condensed 2 piece. Covering all genres through the ages (from Dusty Springfield to Rudimental), we read the crowd giving each audience the music they want to dance to. Keeping it fun, interactive (Lyla always runs around into the crowd!) with high quality musicianship (no backing tracks), we ensure the party keeps going from start to finish. WHY BOOK FLAME TREES? − Value for money – half the price of a full band with the full band experience − Its all live – no nasty backing tracks. We use a variety of percussion, loop pedals (think Ed Sheran at Glastonbury) and a vocal harmoniser to create a big layered sound − Full PA and lighting providing instant party atmosphere − Versatility. We can play jazz in the afternoon and get you grooving at night − Happy to play your first dance live − Perfect for smaller audiences & venues (especially those with sound limiters as we make a full yet controlled sound which you can't achieve with a full sized band) − Very interactive and high energy entertainment. Lyla gets the crowd involved from the get go. Her motto is “its your night and we are here to make sure its one you will never forget” − Complimentary iDJ services in-between sets so the dancefloor never dies when we have a wee breather! − Many years of wedding and corporate experience means you can trust what we are doing and your event is in safe hands − Communication is key. Lyla will speak to all relevant parties before and on the night to ensure the entertainment runs smoothly. − Female and male vocals keeps the sound varied. − Willing to travel across the UK and abroad − can provide a full 4-5 piece band if requested WHO ARE WE?
