Verified profile
The Belle Adventure are a duo, a couple and a pair of old romantics. We love to play music and make a huge, highly entertaining racket.

We have a vintage flair, and style our shows accordingly. You may find yourself in our Speakeasy, listening to Jazz, Blues and Soul, or stomping your feet and spilling your cocktails to our raucous Country Americana in our prohibition-defying saloon. We like to mix the two with more modern songs, but keep them unusual in our close harmony style. Kate and Simon make up The Belle Adventure, and between us, we have over a decade of experience in the music and theatre industries. Kate and Simon have worked on numerous musicals in both the West End and on tour, including Grease, Annie, The Commitments, The Bodyguard, Puttin' On The Ritz and Broadway Wonderland.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We are individual, stylish and outgoing. We love to get to know our clients and their guests and this always improves the event. We dress our stage and ourselves to fit your event so we re immediately eye catching as soon as your guests arrive.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed in theatres, hotels, cruise ships, cocktail bars and pubs all over the World. Some of our favourite have been Disney Cruise Ships and London speak easy cocktail bars. We have also really enjoyed playing out door festivals, at least on the odd occasion that the whether was good.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We love old Country, Soul and Jazz. Artists like Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton, Bill Withers, Ray Charles and Etta James. We also love Fleetwood Mac play quite a few of their songs. More recently we’ve been influenced by The Civil Wars and JohnnySwim. We are always listening to new music and try to combine our vintage taste with something new.

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

For the last two years we’ve been entertaining thousands of people a week on Disney cruise ships all around the Caribbean but we’ve also been lucky enough to play some corporate events for big companies like Jaguar and JP Morgan.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up is usually just the two of us but we know loads of fantastic musicians so if you want a full band to back us up then just let us know. We can add bass and drums or go for a full horn section and backing vocals. The only limitation is your budget.

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

Don’t worry about it. We are totally flexible and are happy to help. We know how things change and we’re happy to help. Just give us as much notice as you can and we’ll let you know if the change is going to incur a cost.

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

We always do! We love music so will always make sure that an outstanding playlist is playing before and between our sets. If you have any specific requests then just let us know and we’ll include them. If you need a DJ set after our performance then we can provide that too.

How much time do you need to set up?

About 45 minutes but we usually like to allow an hour for any issues that might come up and we also like to set up before your guests arrive when possible.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes we can. We don’t mind playing acoustically as long as it fits the theme of your party.

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

We are always happy to perform requests and will build our set lists around those requests. We know our arrangements can be a little different from the one you know so we’ll make sure the songs we choose go well with your request.

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

Yes it is, we bring top notch P.A. equipment, we just need a power supply near our “stage”.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are happy to learn a special song for your event. One is included in the quote but we’re happy to learn more for an extra cost.

Anna D, 3 years ago

Exactly what we wanted from a band for our festival style wedding party. We wanted a mix of different acts and wanted to choose particular songs and the guys were so accommodating. So glad you could be part of our day! (Festival wedding) 10/10

Warwick C, 4 years ago
