About Jonny and the Dunebugs

Dreamt up by some of York's most established players comes a band lost in time, playing retro hits as your ultimate hip shakin’ party band!
Wedding band
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Formed in 2012 as a York "supergroup" comprised of members of long established bands The Blueprints and The Buccaneers, Jonny and the Dunebugs were only ever meant to play one gig; drummer Jonny's wedding. Since then, the band have kept going, playing well over 100 weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries and festivals - even playing to circa 6,000 people at Ricoh Arena! Jonny and the Dunebugs knows how to get any party occasion going - and the dancefloor is always guaranteed to be filled with people shaking their hips! Giving people a good time is what this band does best - playing timeless rock n roll and soul hits that everyone knows and can groove to. This band doesn't do cheese - instead they play good time rock n roll and soul music to get those hips shaking and hands clapping! Every generation will find something to love here - which is why the dancefloor is full from start to finish, every single show!

Brilliant band. Great set of lads. Looked like they were having as much fun as all the wedding guests. The dance floor never emptied. Can’t speak highly enough

Fantastic entertainment at our wedding. We couldn’t have been happier with the band. The dance floor was packed from the first note to the last. Jonny and the Dunebugs played our first dance which will live with us forever. Whenever we get chance we go and see them. As well as playing great music (unbelievably well) the Dunebugs are lovely, genuine people who’s passion for their art is obvious within minutes of speaking to them. The before and aftercare customer service was exemplar with efficient booking and an extremely fair price. 10/10, 5 star, touchdown. I fully recommend this band, for your wedding, party, pub, stadium; whatever the occasion, whatever the venue, they will not disappoint

I highly recommend this band, they played at our wedding and both myself and my husband couldn’t of been happier with them. They played a really good mix of songs and our wedding party were on their feet all night. The cherry on the cake was when they played my favourite song by Tina Turner. We still get complimented on how good our band was. I’m already thinking of another party that we can use Jonny and the Dunebugs
