About Robert

London based band that specialise in performing irresistible cover versions of the funkiest grooves, alt/pop hits and inescapable classics
Verified profile

Please allow us introduce you to Sexy Rumours. We are a London based band that specialise in performing versions of famous hits from the 70’s to the 00’s that you won't hear at your average night out. Ranging from funky grooves to alt/pop vibes via inescapable classics we play the tunes that everyone wants to hear but are so often afraid to ask for. For us the audience always comes first and although we have our own list of songs ready to go we are happy to tailor our set content and duration to whatever you want for your wedding, club night, or party (we generally play 2 x 45-60 minute sets with a short break in between). If you want us to perform a specific song let us know what it is in advance and we will put it in the repertoire - what's most important to us is that everyone has a good time. Check out the list of songs on our Encore profile we have gig ready to play at your party tonight! Fully equipped with our own PA & backline we can cater to rooms both big and small and that will be reflected in the rate that we charge. Just get in touch with us outlining your specifications and we will give you a quote on the same day. Most sexily yours Rob/Frankie/Bill/Nick (Sexy Rumours)

We Googled 10 different event bands before selecting Sexy Rumours for a wedding celebration because they were price competitive and professionally presented. Rob (the lead singer) was great to deal with as he was very friendly and open to singing some of our favourite songs from The Beatles through to Ed Sheeran plus their own selection of great songs. They really are a fantastic professional quality band.

Sexy Rumours just made our wedding the best day it could possibly have been! What an incredible band! The two of us and our wedding guests have been completely blown away with how good the night was because of them, we all haven’t stopped talking about it since! The guys are extremely talented musicians and their stage presence is just brilliant, they really engage with and captivate the audience. Their playlist catered for everyone and filled the dancefloor song after song & their renditions of our special songs ‘Kiss From A Rose’ and ‘Wild Horses’ couldn’t have been any more perfect. We can't thank you enough! Jackie & Mike
