Established in 2011, Live Lounge have built an enviable reputation as one of the top wedding and function bands in the region. Wedding and function clients comment without fail on the unusual sound, the different instrumentation and the quirky choice of songs. Michaela’s stunning vocals blend with sweet violin lines and perfect guitar backing to create an unique combination. The band have always put great customer service as high in importance as great music and we work closely with all clients to make sure they get the experience they and their guests will love and remember. All quotes include a FREE special song/first dance worked up in our unique style Michaela has been playing in rock bands since the age of 11, played the first Bingley Music Live at the age of 14 and even supported the Merseybeats. Her influences include Joan Jett, Pat Benatar and Shirley Manson but so many of our audiences comment on the songs she sings that are associated with male singers in the original versions. All comment on how amazing her voice is! Howard learned violin from the age of 8 but had a few proper jobs before discovering his Live Lounge colleagues in 2011. Many are fascinated by the Ned Steinberger electric 5 string he plays, combining violin and viola in one instrument. A classical background, a love of jazz and a few years of listening to all-sorts provides for an unusual style of playing. Danny joined founder members Howard and Michaela in 2016 and brings a rich musical background to the band. Not only an accomplished guitarist and keyboard player, Danny is totally immersed in music – he has his own recording studio, #CitySoundStudios, in Bradford and also teaches music. The band have extensive experience of weddings and functions in both UK and Italy, working with exclusive country house venues, blue-chip corporate clients as well as hotels, bars and restaurants that are looking for entertainment with a difference

Our line-up is usually a trio with female vocals, guitar and electric violin, but members of the trio add in bass guitar, cajon, percussion pedal and other precussion We do sometimes perform as an instrumental duo (guitar and violin) for wedding ceremonies

We usually set up about an hour 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!

The violin is wireless and so can be used as a roaming instrument

Apologies for the delay in sending this as when we got back from our honeymoon I just have not stopped but thought you should know the responses I have had from our guests. We have had people coming saying how good you were. I think my brother is now following you on either face book or twitter. Not sure which But the fact that my brother got up to dance whilst you were playing - I am impressed as this does not happen very often. He said that you were worth every penny and we both have to agree with him. So thank you so much for traveling to Chester to Play at our wedding and making the evening amazing in more ways than one I even think jims brothers on the dance floor which again I believe does not happen very often if at all. So basically “A very big THANK YOU to all of you for a truly land mark evening. From a very grateful appreciative.
