Verified profile

Soaring male lead vocals with a band of talented multi-instrumentalists, Moves Til Midnight offer a cool and contemporary style of performance for all events. No backing tracks and no clichés, these guys play a selection of indie, pop, hip-hop, folk and old school classics. Seasoned performers who have played at Cambridge University May Balls, major festivals, nation-wide music tours and many weddings, Moves Til Midnight is the perfect choice for those who want the party without the cheese. You can come and see the band play at their own Cambridge studio before booking if you wish. Can’t accommodate a 5-piece? The Upper Hand perform as a duo with vocals, guitar, keys and sax, suitable for smaller and more intimate events.

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.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours 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.

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

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

ur PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 3 by 4m space to perform

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you, it is included in the fee.

I would definitely recommend Bespoke Party Bands to anyone, very professional and really quick to communicate. We had The Upper Hand play at our work event and they were amazing! Such a great selection of songs which they put their own twist on. Great selection of instruments too including the saxophone which was awesome! Just got to think of another event we can hire the band for 😄

Just to let you know that myself and my friends had THE BEST time on Saturday. I received so much positive feedback on the style, set-list, and sound of the band. I thought they were amazing and totally gave my party the vibe that I wanted to create. I am really so pleased, and just want to say a massive thanks to you all. Please send my hugs and congrats to the band, I hope that we weren’t too much of a nightmare to deal with, I was a little over excited… Many thanks :) Jenni xxxx
