We hired Stallions and the Bear for our wedding in November. I was quite apprehensive about choosing the music as it’s so difficult to choose a great band just going off a short video clip. However, we were so pleased with the band, everyone was up dancing all night and we had so many people tell us how fantastic they were! Highly recommend! Thank you!!

They were actually kept waiting for us which I do apologise for, they are absolutely amazing and I'm very fussy I literally spent weeks listening to bands over and over again and these stuck out to me and they are just as great in person as they are on video. Three very polite and outgoing men. Everybody loved their music and they played a great mixture songs. They made our wedding day a special one. Will definitely be booking them again for our anniversary if they're available.

Amazing! Turned up early before their set to set up. We had a short power cut due to thunderstorms and weren’t sure how long this would last, but they started practicing acoustic songs to continue!! We had so many positive comments from our guests about how good they were, and they got everyone up and dancing. Highly recommend

Me and Sophie just wanted to send a quick email to say how amazing the band were. They were lovely to chat with and their performances were beyond mine and Sophie’s expectations! We are so glad we booked them and even said next time we have some form of event we will definitely book them in again. Please could you pass this over to them. I hope they liked performing at our venue and the crowd/atmosphere made their time enjoyable too. Many Thanks, Phil & Sophie

The Stallions played at our 60th birthday party and were excellent - they judged the music really well, were excellent instrumentalists and singers and really nice people to deal with. They made adapted to a small area and I would highly recommend them and would book them again without hesitation

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We pride ourselves on our ability to read the crowd and keep the party going all night long. Our clients also love our stage presence and how we interact with the crowd, making everyone feel included in the party.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We played corporate parties for Argos, Barclays Bank and the World Scout Association. Our members have performed alongside artists and acts such as Ellie Goulding, Train, Blue & Florence & the Machine

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. 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 main line-up is the 3-piece, but we can also perform as a 2-piece Acoustic duo.

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

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?

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote alongside professionally mixed music in the set breaks.
