Great band, great song choice for our wedding. The dance floor was bouncing from start to finish. Loads of our guests asked who they were and want to see more of them. Will definitely be coming to watch more of your public shows. Thanks for putting on a great show for our wedding - best decision we made. Matt and Gemma

Absolutely fantastic band, all of our guests were blown away with how good they are! If I could rate them 6 out of 5 stars, I'd give them a 7! Our 18 month old daughter also loved them, and they interacted with her as if it was her own personal gig. Amazing band, amazing guys, amazing experience. Highly recommended

We booked Helix And The Hounds for our staff Christmas party and the dance floor was packed all night! They are an extremely talented group with a stellar set list to appeal to all ages. They not only engaged our guests, they engaged in our mission too. We’ll definitely book them again.

My wife and I were searching for a band for our festival feel wedding and came across Helix And The Hounds. With them playing countless festivals themselves around the UK we thought they would be perfect. We never expected how perfect, all we could say was wow!! It really was like being at the pyramid stage in Glastonbury. The band played anthem after anthem with the dancefloor packed from the first note. They really made our wedding, thank you once again guys!!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The performance we put on for their show. We fully believe that the performance creates an energy that lifts the room up and makes the party atmosphere. Having had years of experience playing arenas, and festivals we use all that and put it into every single performance we do for our clients. No show is the same and every single one is special.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Hundreds of venues, including The O2 in Bristol and Bournemouth Arena

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Bands such as Arctic Monkeys, Stereophonics, Oasis and bands in the indie rock genre. Before we went into the wedding and events industry we were signed to one of the biggest independent indie record labels in the UK and were lucky enough to work with the same Grammy Award winning producers who worked with these artists.

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

Highest profile gigs are either at the O2 in Bristol supporting The Pogues, Bournemouth Arena for Amigo Loans Xmas Party, or outdoor festival in Swansea in front of 4,000 people supporting The Feeling, and Kurrupt FM. We've also performed for the BBC, NME, BMW, Virgin, Hilton, Mariott & SKY TV.

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

What sets us apart from other party bands out there is that we are actually a band. We dont chop and change our members as being a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident thatour performance is delivered at the highest standard every single time.

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 and we will work around you.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £150.

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!

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 state-of-the-art, professional PA and lighting system is included in your quote.

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.
