Verified profile

Having played at some of the finest venues in the UK, The Alleycatz have become one of the London's premier function bands. The band have played over 500 performances since forming in 2014! With fantastic energy, a high level of musicianship and professionalism, they are one of the most sought after bands around. Since they first appeared at Ronnie Scott's Jazz club as a backing band, they have gone on to play all over the UK and parts of Europe at various prestigious events, weddings and private parties. Both as a band and individual musicians, they have rubbed shoulders with celebrities, appeared in magazines and played in some of the finest hotels and venues in the UK. Playing a mix of pop/soul/R&B and dance music from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Chic, Beyonce and Bruno Mars, they are not your average party band. With song choices that take you back to those early days of Motown in the 60's, disco dancing in the 70's, clubbing in the 90's or listening to R&B in the early 00's, the Alleycatz have something for everyone. Not only will they give you that little feeling of nostalgia but with powerhouse vocals, tight harmonies and great musicianship, they will deliver with energy and style to really make your event one to remember. Perform as a female fronted five piece band or have them with male and female vocals with brass section, 8 piece. Previous clients include: • Volkswagen • Ted Baker • The Teenage Cancer Trust • Peugeot • The Hilton • Blackpool Winter Gardens • Claridges London

Customer questions

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

Yes, the singer/singers will be as seen in the videos. If we know the singer may be unavailable we will let you know before booking us.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes. We vary from a duo to a full 8 piece, as in the video. Our most common line up is as a 5 piece with Female lead vocals, guitar, bass, keys and drums. We are able to add members as you wish.

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

Timings are easily adjusted and quite often never pan out the way you intended. we are flexible and happy to adjust accordingly.

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

Yes. we provide music throughout the event. We try and cater to your taste so may ask if you have any specific genre's/artists or songs you'd like to hear.

How much time do you need to set up?

Ideally we like to have at least 60 - 90 minutes to set up with plenty of time to relax a little, have music playing for your guests etc before we start our live sets.

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

You can pick songs you'd like to hear from our set, yes.

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

All of our quotes include full PA, Lighting and DJ music until 12 midnight. Late finishes may have a small fee.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are happy to learn requests/first dances. We would happily learn up to 3 songs if we don't already know them. Please give us a couple of weeks notice if you would like anything specific and not already in our set.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We would probably say our song choices and energy. We try to play songs that we love to hear ourselves. Songs that mean something to us. That seems to come across when we play them live. If you love the song, you will always play it with passion, which is important when performing.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have played many, many venues up and down the country. From Castles, to corporate buildings, outside stages to upstairs at the Dog and Duck... We've played them all.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Stevie Wonder, MJ, Prince, Chic, Aretha Franklin, Motown, Soul, Disco... anything that has stood the test of time, we're all about that!

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

We've played for a few big companies such as Volkswagon, Ted Baker and The Teenage Cancer trust. Katie and Phil played as a duo at a wedding featured in Hello magazine, as well as Katie being on the X factor in 2015.

These guys absolutely stole the show at our wedding on the 26th August. They travelled all the way to Worcestershire, got in and set up with plenty time to spare and delivered an amazing set (well, three sets!) based around the kind of music we had discussed with the band beforehand. Every member is super talented and Katie's vocals are so versatile - they really click together as a band and can read the crowd and the room perfectly. Add to that they are genuinely lovely people and this is a band I cannot recommend highly enough, a proper highlight of our wedding!

I cannot recommend The Alleycatz enough! They brought so much energy to our wedding and kept our guests dancing all night which is exactly what we wanted, and they truly made the night. We have had so many comments from our guests about how great they were. They were also really easy to work with in the build up to the wedding and quick to respond to any questions that we had!

Can not recommend these guys enough!! We had them at our wedding in December and they were absolutely incredible. Our guests are still raving about them. Amazing sound, really really talented musicians and Phil was a delight to liaise with in the run up to the day. Just perfect for a big wedding party!
