Verified profile

The band name Madison Avenue is based on a street near the Stax Studios in Memphis. After building the band of musicians during late 2016, early 2017 saw some changes in the vocalists. Our first gigs were with Liam and Stephen in May/June 2017, with Lucy joining them in August 2017. The band varies from 8 to 11 members in total, depending on the size of the horns section and number of vocalists performing. With two or three lead vocalists, there is a great mix of harmonies, duets and joint songs.

Customer questions

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

We try to gig with all three singers, but sometimes only two are available - any combination has a large repertoire and will include harmonies and duets.

Do you have different line-up options?

We can cut down to 8 but prefer 10-11 in order to provide a full-band experience. If space is an issue we can discuss different set up options in order to accommodate.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem, just talk to us and we will work out a solution between us.

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

We can provide background music via a Spotify playlist or a DJ service can be added - price depends on application.

How much time do you need to set up?

We require 90 minutes to fully set up and sound-check, after which we can play background music until we begin our set.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

You can select a few favourites for us definitely to play, and maybe the odd one to avoid if you wish - you can also influence the content, i.e. genre, how many slow songs etc.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Of course, our quotes include full PA and lighting equipment as well as a qualified sound engineer to provide the most premium sound for your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We will consider requests if they usefully add to our repertoire; we will learn a first dance for a wedding (as long as it is doable with our instrumentation and vocalists and the request is registered when the booking is made).

We held an event for our employer awards, where Madison Avenue UK played at the end of the awards ceremony. The 10 piece soul band were a great hit with everyone of all ages, both men and women. It’s unusual for a dance floor to be full all night - people really enjoyed themselves. The sound was amazing and the singers were stunning. An all-round fabulous band who I would recommend for any occasion. Versatile, accommodating, talented people, creating amazing entertainment. So great I have booked them for my wedding!
