Prepare yourself for the best night of your life with Pop The Top, the UK’s premier 3-piece pop and rock band! Grab your dancing shoes and prepare to sing along to all of your favourite songs under the glow of their industry leading light show - they are not a band to miss! How do Pop The Top create such an unforgettable live experience? In addition to their talents on their instruments, the boys sing impressive harmonies and further elevate their sound by incorporating modern technologies such as drum triggers, MIDI-controlled Kempers and high quality backing tracks - just like all of your favourite modern pop artists! Couple this with their industry-leading, fully-programmed lighting rig and you have a spectacle that, in the past, wouldn’t have been possible without a large ensemble of musicians and a lighting engineer. What’s more is that all of this is included as standard with your booking! With Pop The Top you can expect to hear party anthems and huge sing-alongs from the last 70 years! From Elvis to Oasis and all the way to Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa, they create the perfect setlist for your event to keep everyone glued to the dancefloor, and what’s more is you get to help design it! Pop The Top creates bespoke setlists for every event based on your musical preferences. Just tell us the kinds of music and bands you like and they’ll tailor the setlist to you, picking songs from their massive 300+ song repertoire. Additionally, they’re more than happy to learn your first dance free of charge! All that’s left is for you to sit back and watch your event become the talking point of your friends for years to come! All three members of Pop The Top are highly-trained musicians, completing degrees in music from the universities of Southampton and BIMM Bristol. They’ve played at hundreds of weddings, corporate events and parties together over the last five years as well as writing and recording their own music in their spare time. Needless to say, their vast experience and skill is just one of the reasons they can bring you the ultimate live music experience. A standard booking includes two hours of live music, DJ service, their industry-leading lighting rig and if you like, they’ll learn a first dance or special song for you free of charge. Pop The Top are a completely self contained band, bringing their own PA and sound system, so all they need from you on the day is 2 standard 13A plug sockets (normal UK plug sockets) to give them power. They also offer an optional extra one-hour afternoon acoustic set as a solo, duo or trio. This is the perfect addition for your drinks reception! Pop The Top are fully PAT and PLI certified and are more than happy to send certifications to your venue if they require them.

We loved having Pop The Top at our wedding! They had a great set list and they even learnt our first dance song, making the evening even more special. They were super friendly and their communication with us before the wedding was superb. We're so glad that we booked them and we had a brilliant end to our wedding thanks to them!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The energy! We combine raucous live performances with clever lighting and audio technologies to bring you a live show that, without extra musicians, lighting technicians and more, wouldn't have been possible in the past!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Where haven't we played should be the question! We've been really lucky to bring our live show to venues all across the UK and Europe, playing at 100s of wedding and corporate events together!

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

In almost all cases the line up you see in the videos is the same as on the night. However, in the unlikely event a band member falls ill or is unavailable, we do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians ready to go. 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?

Our standard line up is a 3 piece: Vocals, Guitar, Bass & Drums. We also use high-quality backing tracks to help recreate the sound of classic songs that you'd otherwise have to book a 7-10 piece band for! In addition to this, we have a 4 piece line up with an added Keys player to really take guests experience to the next level!

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

We're pretty flexible with your timings on the night so if anything changes, please just let us know and we'll be more than happy to accommodate the new schedule!

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

Basic DJ service is provided as standard with every booking up so no need to worry - we'll keep the dance floor moving! If you would like DJ service to continue after 12am, an additional late-stay fee of £60/hour will be added to your booking.

How much time do you need to set up?

We generally take 75-90 minutes to load in and set up and sound check. As soon as we have the PA up and ready we can put on some background music to set the atmosphere while we finish the last stages of set up.

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

Our set lists are crafted from 100s of gigs worth of experience and engineered to keep the dance floor moving! While we don't generally let clients pick out all the songs in the set, we do discuss the music they prefer and build custom set lists for each event. The result is the music you love and the perfect dance floor filling playlist for your event!

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

Yes! Our industry-leading lighting rig and PA are included as standard in every quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We're more than happy to learn one song request or first dance free of charge! There is a fee of £30/song for any additional requests to cover rehearsals, backing track creation and light programming.
