About Polly

Polly is an experienced and versatile vocalist, working primarily with Monroe Acoustic Duo & Function Band.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Monroe Acoustic Duo are a little bit different to other function acts. Vocalist Polly & guitarist Ian are both professional session musicians who regularly work right at the top end of the music industry. Ian has played guitar for top acts like Simon Webbe (Blue), Errol Brown, Roger Sanchez and Reuben Wilson & produces instrumental music for use in television and film. Polly writes and records vocals for electronic producers and has worked with artists from labels like Hospital Records, Defected Records, Spearhead, fourthreesix, Uprise Audio, Moda Black and lots more. Her most recent collaboration on an album with producer Seven reached no.1 in the Juno dubstep charts. The acoustic duo combines Ian’s beautiful and intricate, jazz-infused guitar style with Polly’s soulful and impressive vocals. The duo’s songlist spans the last six decades and includes a HUGE range of music to suit all occasions - whether you need the perfect, romantic classic for your Bridal Entrance, or an upbeat selection of dance and pop hits to keep your guests amused and entertained. Polly & Ian also have a pool of some of the UK’s most experienced session musicians to call upon to form both their acoustic and electric 4-piece bands. Their team have worked with Atomic Kitten, Girls Aloud, Ronan Keating, X Factor & The Voice finalists, and many, may more. The acoustic band gives a cool, live-lounge style option for early evening/afternoon entertainment, or for smaller venues or locations with noise limits. The electric band kicks out a killer setlist filled with funk, soul & dance classics to keep all your guests dancing until the very last beat.

Boom, boom shake the room!!! Polly, Ian and the team just did a fantastic job as ever for me in London on 24th November. Polly has performed at several functions for me both large and small, they never fail to deliver and always get the mood just right. If you want great tunes and an amazing voice look no further. 10 out of 10 Thanks again guys for making a great night into an awesome night!

Our wedding reception was made perfect by these guys. Everything was flawless and we had so many comments from our guests who loved the atmosphere and quality of these guys! I may have gotten on stage with them at some point... 🙈🙊 And even that didn't phase them! If you want a night/day to remember then you NEED to book these guys. No questions asked. They're hands down amazing. Everything was handled beautifully and flawlessly from set up to performance to take down. Thank you again Polly and your boys for helping us to make such amazing memories!
