" certainly know how to get a party started! It was the best night of our lives." –– DEC DONNELLY "The atmosphere they created was brilliant and the music was awesome. All our guests commented on how fantastic the band was and we all danced the night away!” –– HARRY JUDD, MCFLY "The lead vocalist at the wedding...let me assure you, there was an extensive honeymoon period off the back of that set." ––DERMOT O'LEARY A powerhouse of funky rhythmic playing, soul-drenched vocals and searing horn lines, Kickoff is the clear first choice for any party seeking the cutting edge in live music entertainment. Kickoff's musicians are hand-picked from the elite of the London session scene (many forming Ronnie Scott's jazz orchestra) and perform regularly with A-list pop acts across the world, including Kylie Minogue, Sam Smith, Emeli Sande, Basement Jaxx, Tom Jones and countless more. They give their all with the band to create a high-impact, rhythmically tight sound unrivalled on the UK party scene. Kickoff's irresistibly upbeat set list, comprised of recent chart hits together with soul, Motown and pop classics from the past 50 years, is guaranteed to fill any dance floor in seconds. The band are equally appropriate for lavish events on a grand scale or more intimate gatherings, with an impressive array of glamorous parties, sporting events and high-profile corporates to their name. The band’s five different incarnations range from a 7-piece right up to orchestra, with their flexibility of instrumentation ensuring the band is appropriately sized for each occasion.

Kickoff's Song list

Kickoff's setlist is a compendium of the funkiest ever dancefloor hits, from massive current chart anthems through to the soul & Motown classics of the '70s & '80s, and everything in between. The repertoire below is intended as a guideline only; each show's set will be hand-crafted for that event based on the singers booked for that show and their personal specialities. A typical set will move from funky soul & Motown (e.g. Stevie, Aretha, MJ) through disco and pop classics (e.g. Tina, Prince) to current and recent chart (e.g. Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Rihanna) - guaranteed to pack out dance floors from beginning to end!
