About The Bears

Award winning wedding and party band with 15 years experience and over 200 songs to choose from!
Wedding band
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The Bears are proud to be celebrating 15 years in the PARRRDY business. Fed purely on a diet of the beaming smiles emanating back from the dance-floor and buffet food emanating from the buffet table! We play Pop/Rock party anthems from the 60s to the Twenties….no not those Twenties, ‘cause that’s not a vibe! WE HAVE A HUGE REPERTOIRE FOR ANY OCCASION – OVER 200 SONGS! That means we can play to any dance-floor demographic. In fact we have been awarded a doctorate in dance-floor demographics from the f**king UNIVERSITY OF ROCK & ROLL … YA HEAR?! The Bears are willing and able to add their “we’ll get yer gran dancing” guarantee to every booking! You are in safe hands (paws) with The Bears. They’re Grrreat!™ Right kids? Oh…..we may look fierce but our personal hygiene is beyond reproach ;)

The Bears recently played at our staff Christmas party and were absolutely brilliant! We have such a mixture of ages and there was definitely music for everyone. They were so easy to deal with from start to finish and would definitely recommend them. Thank you for a great night - we all had a brilliant time!
