The Boneshaker Band take you on an amazing musical journey from the roaring 20s to the swinging 60s and beyond! This is party music from five talented musicians with serious intentions to entertain you with style and pizazz. A fabulous repertoire of music roams from Latin tangos to entrancing melodies from the middle eastern. From New Orleans grooves to dancefloor Klezmer. You’ll romance to classic movie themes and sway with songs from Italia’s La Dolce Vita and the French Riviera then take a dip into the Great British and American songbooks. An evening with The Boneshaker Band is an evening to remember. The band have performed on The Orient Express and at festivals including Henley, Petworth and Kaleidoscope. Regulars at Alexandra Palace fireworks festival and resident at London's celebrated cocktail bar The Oriole. They have performed for numerous private events including weddings, birthday parties and special celebrations. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Customer questions

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

Yes always!

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes the trio could be vocals/guitar and bass with either fiddle, drums/percussion, sax or keyboards. Similarly with a quartet. For a six piece we would usually add keyboards but trumpet is also an option

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. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.”

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. We usually require a minimum of 6m by 3m space to perform”

Can you learn song requests before the event?

“If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc. ”
