"More Is More – Hard Hitting Heavyweight Brass" Comprised of 3 saxophones and a bespoke portable drum kit, More Is More delivers a unique blend of improvised groove music and covers. Originally formed as a street busking band, this young energetic and talented act endeavours to move the raw electricity of live street performance to stages and events. A perfect addition to any occasion, More Is More offer a complete covers set full of hard hitters that will get heads turning and guests dancing. They move seamlessly between songs, drawing from all time classics, 90’s floor fillers, and modern day hits to springboard into exciting improvisations. Together and individually they have played at venues such as Wembley Stadium, The O2, NIA Birmingham, The Royal Albert Hall, The Union Chapel, the Southbank centre, and main stages at Shambala, Bestival, and Boomtown festivals. Members have performed alongside artists including Beverley Knight, Peter Andre, Lee Ryan and Beardyman. Previous Clients include: • Royal Ascot • Linked In • The Emirates FA Cup • British Airways i360 • The National Theatre • Swiss Shippers Council • Borough Market • Turner Contemporary • Camden Town Brewery • Hyde Park Winter Wonderland • Epsom Downs Racecourse • British Council • Wembley Stadium • City Pantry, and • Sofar Sounds. Whether it’s marching wedding guests down an aisle, entertainment for a drinks reception, or providing walk on stings for an award ceremony, More Is More are incredibly versatile and adaptable to the situation at hand. They are available as a stage performance or an acoustic roaming band, which can be completely mobile while playing. This allows performances to take place in a plethora of exciting scenarios. For larger-scale events, More Is More can also be connected to a P.A. system, and their wireless microphone set up still allows for a great deal of mobility. Please enquire for any further details and to find out what we can bring to your event.

Customer questions

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

As an instrumental act we don't have a singer. We strive to ensure the line-up you see is what you get for your event. We do have pre-audititioned 'deps' available in case a band member is unavailable. Our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level and all 'deps' have performed with us in the past.

Do you have different line-up options?

We occasionally perform as a 3 piece ensemble. We really recommend the 4 piece for the full effect but performing as a trio is an option that we would be happy to discuss!

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?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free so long as there is a PA on site or if this has been added on to our booking.

How much time do you need to set up?

We're a very quick act to set up and are usually ready in about 30 minutes.

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

Our performances are based on audience reaction and who happens to be on the dancefloor at the time. If it’s a younger bunch then we’ll play some more modern dance and house tunes and if it’s an older crowd we might do something more oldschool like some 80s music! However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for you.

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

We usually perform as an acoustic act which also means we are completely mobile and reduces set up time. PA and lighting system are not included in your quote but we can add these on at an extra cost. Please let us know what you need and we will be happy to quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If you do have any specific requests, please let us know! Generally we're happy to through a few requests that don't feature on our set list in free of charge. We may occasionally charge extra if this will require a significant amount of time to arrange and rehearse.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

You can read our reviews and testimonials for a clear idea of what clients enjoy!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Bestival Festival Union Chapel Wembley Stadium Sofar Sounds Madame Tussauds London Linked In London Aquarium Boomtown Festival Camden Town Brewery Brighton i360 We have also performed internationally from Switzerland to as far afield as Marrakesh!

They were incredible, we had them coming in as a surprise straight after the ceremony, we asked them if they could play a few songs that they didn't have on their playlist and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were so cool about everything and made our day just that little bit more special. At least two people at the wedding wanted to use them for other weddings. Perfect.

I booked the band to play at my husband's surprise 40th birthday party in London. From initial contact to finishing the gig the guys were fantastic. Great communication, very flexible, reliable, incredible musiciansand wonderful sense of humours. They were well up for have a go at a song they'd never done before and it turned out to be the song of the night! Thanks so much guys, I'd recommend you in a heartbeat!!

These guys were incredible. We booked them to lead us and our guests on a 10 min walk from our wedding ceremony to reception venue. It was by far one of the best moments of the day and a memory my husband and I will treasure always. Our guests were blown away too. Thanks guys!

You absolutely smashed it out of the park! Your style and energy were exactly what we were looking for, and you made a huge impact on our day :) it was really good fun, we loved when you got on the chairs at the end and really put your backs out! Quite a few people said it was the best wedding entertainment they'd ever seen (and they're not wrong!)
