ABOUT tab Smooth Edge supply the atmosphere and feelgood vibe for the perfect occasion - the versatile and classy choice for all functions and venues.

My wife and I shared our 60th’s and 40th wedding anniversary and through a family member were alerted to Smooth Edge and were fortunate enough to have them to play at our party on February 7th 2015, What a professional band of musicians who can play just about anything and have a wonderful warm persona that makes for a fantastic experience and made the difference to the whole evening. During and after the party we had so many people asking ” where did you find the band” all saying how brilliant they were. Would I book them again—Yes Thank you Elliot-Pete-Neil and Yvonne for making our night special. Pete & Sue

Having booked smooth edge for both the Alderley and Bramhall BubbleRoom Bar and Restaurant- they have been fantastic and proved very popular with the regular Sunday night crowd. They are able to adapt to any crowd size to creat a great atmosphere. Very professional- I would definitely recommend. Can’t wait for them to play on New Years Eve!
