I hired Start the Party for my son’s 21st and husband’s surprise 50th, I have been to lots of events over the years weddings, birthdays, Christmas parties and have seen all types of bands but these guys are one of the best bands I have ever seen! I was a bit worried about the fact that there was a wide range of ages there from small children to great grandmas and wondered if they could realistically keep everyone entertained but I needn’t have worried - they performed some fantastic songs and covered all tastes and age ranges! The DJ set that they played in between sets was brilliant, they kept everyone on the dance floor all night! They did exactly what they say on the tin “START THE PARTY!!” Hire them now for your next event you won’t regret it!!

I am delighted to highly recommend Charlotte Day and Start The Pary who played at Adelphi’s 2018 Annual New Years event in February. Charlotte’s solo over dinner gave a perfect backdrop and nice lead into the band coming on stage and doing exactly as they are named….. 'Start The Party'!! We had a great night, every song they played kept the dance floor full and rocking right to the very end of the night.
