Disco & Funk band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Tashaka Baumber - 'Superb performer with the killer look and killer Vocal to match.' Iain Palmer - 'Smooth, smouldering, sensual, soothing, unparalleled male vocals loved by all.' Miles Harlem is a Collective group of musicians and vocalists, of the highest caliber and professionalism. The band members individually draw on years of professional experience having worked with artists such as The Lighthouse Family, Misteeq, Leona Lewis, Take That, Westlife, and many more, also performing in Hit Musicals in London’s West End. Their clients have ranged from BMW to The Resort Group, Toyota, and many other multinational organisations. The Band are happy to tailor the set of songs they perform to suit any situation, making any event (whether corporate or a private party) enjoyable for all and one that will be talked about for years to come! The band is a self-contained unit with full PA and lights, which means they can take care of everything! They can also offer the option of a disco to your live set if you require. The full band is covered with Public Liability insurance and the means to travel both within the UK and overseas. Tashaka and Iain began singing together in 2010 when they held a two-year residency at The Riverbank Bar and Kitchen - playing weekly as the "House Band" which later became the band T.I.Funk. Becoming regular features at The Moorings - Newark, The Approach, The Southbank, The Bell Inn, The Farndon Boat House, and Tom Browns in Nottingham too, the band went from strength to strength. They also made regular appearances at Oscar's Wine Bar in Grantham and have had the pleasure of landing a regular spot at Floridita in Soho, London, and the Bistro Live Events team, appearing in Milton Keynes, Leicester, and Nottingham. Tashaka and Iain later formed Miles Harlem working as a covers band, but they are also working on their own material! They continue to be in high demand both locally and throughout the UK at weddings and events, doing what they are best at... Entertaining! Get in touch to find out when they are playing next! Weddings Soul, Motown, Jazz, Current Pop, and The Classics are all covered keeping your guests happy to listen, socialise and dance!

Customer questions

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band, our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

The band can also offer an Acoustic Duo, Trio, Live Piano, or Live Piano & Vocals for your wedding breakfast or ceremony as an addition to your wedding package or to create a different atmosphere during the evening.

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.

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

Our break is usually 20-30 minutes long, and we include playing music via an iPod to keep the atmosphere going. You may provide your music if you prefer. We also offer a DJ set after the band's performance at a small extra cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually arrive 1.5 hours in advance to set up for the evening entertainment though this does depend on how easy it is to access the performance room and stage area.

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

We encourage sharing preferences, and we'll play as many songs as you like as possible. However, our priority is putting together a performance that allows keeping the party moving. Over the years, we have realised that many of our favourite songs don't work as well as others in a live situation!

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

All quotes include the band's transport costs and sound system and lighting supply.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We strongly encourage you to give us your preferences and favourite songs from our current repertoire list. However, we strongly advise against picking tracks and arranging entire setlists due to the quite specific way in which we put together our performances. We will, however, add as many of the ones you like in as possible.
