Verified profile

The Busketeers are a band like no other, known for their raw energy and diverse shows. Comprised of four talented musicians who are all singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they captivate audiences with their ability to harmonise and seamlessly swap instruments while delivering a unique sound that blends genres from all over the musical spectrum. Their passion for music is evident in every note they play. Performing at Boardmasters, Tunes In Park, Rock Oyster, Great Estate and more 2023 The Busketeers originally formed on the streets of Plymouth, Devon, UK, where they quickly gained a reputation for their diverse performances and impressive musical skills. The band consists of Kendall Williams, Luke Engel (part of the band Wild Fenn), Matthew Gordon Price, and Olly Parker. Each member brings their own unique style and influences to the group, resulting in a sound that is both eclectic and cohesive. Despite their success as a street band, The Busketeers quickly gained a following and began playing at local venues, eventually building a fan base that extended beyond their hometown. Their reputation as a must-see live act grew, and they were soon playing at festivals and venues across the country. The Busketeers are set to release their album, "The Busketeers," in 2023. The album will showcase the band's impressive range of musical styles and their ability to seamlessly blend them together. From folk to rock to pop, "The Busketeers" is a testament to the bands musical prowess and dedication to their craft. Since then, The Busketeers have continued to tour and release new music, building a loyal fan base along the way. They have played at some of the UK's biggest music festivals and stages, including Boardmasters, Plymouth Pavilions, Tunes In The Dunes, Leopallooza, Rock Oyster, Tunes In The Park, Rattler Fest, Little Orchard Festival and many more. As The Busketeers continue to evolve and grow as musicians, one thing remains constant: their commitment to providing audiences with an unforgettable live experience. We are very open to bespoke packages and we work with all clients to provide the best service we can! We aren't just a function band, we are a peoples band and we do our best at every gig.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Most say our ability to switch instruments and all sing. Nobody really does this like we do, mid songs, mid set and a lot of our clients really love this aspect - it also means we have a different sound for each set but it's still our own! Offering a wide range of genres, classic hits and new tunes as well.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Festivals: Boardmasters; Tunes In The Dunes; Looe Music Fest; Leopallooza; Tunes In The Park; Rattler Fest; Little Orchard Festival; Lechlade; Dart Fest and loads of local smaller festivals such as: Glas-Denbury; Salcombe Live; Kingsbridge Venues: 100s across the UK, but our biggest have been: Plymouth Pavilions; Plymouth Guildhall; Tate St Ives;

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

A very wide range but a few from each of us: Mumford & Sons; John Mayer; Red Hot Chilli Peppers; Beatles Jimi Hendrix; Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, JJ Cale, Bob Dylan, 90s bangers, Folk, indie, rock, reggae and just about anything we can cover!

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

Boardmasters 2023 Plymouth Pavilions 2023 Tunes In The Park 2022 & 2023 (Main Stage) Rock Oyster 2023 Little Orchard Festival 2021 & 2022 Rattler Fest 2021 & 2022 Lechlade 2023 Looe Music Festival 2017 & 2018 Tunes In The Dunes 2018 Leopallooza 2018 Plymouth Guildhall (multiple events across the years)

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

The Busketeers are very different and have not 1, not 2 or 3 but 4 unique singers and all of them are in our videos. Check them all out!

Do you have different line-up options?

We do have different line-up options (duo, trio and full band) but we like to keep our flow as a full band. We have a great ability to see how a crowd reacts to our songs and we can change our set list to adapt to the generations or feel of the venue.

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

Timings can change a bit but we just need to be notified ASAP as we always want to do what we can for our clients. If it's an hour or 2 thats fine more than that and we will need to discuss options

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 (after setup and before we finish). We do ask clients to provide us with a playlist as you'll know your guests better than we do! If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional fee per hour

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1.5 to 2 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?

You can if you wish, but we find that the couples who have let us control our set list have been happier. The reason being is that we can change our set whilst we perform - this can reflect the rooms vibe and atmosphere. We have crafted our set from years of experience and always add fresh songs

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

All equipment included is as follows: PA system 1000w with digital desk, stage lighting and inbetween DJ music if required. We usually require a space of about 15 ft by 6 ft minimum. Perfect space would be 20 ft by 10 ft

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We usually ask for 1-4 song requests and we always try to learn 1 song minimum. We have a long list of songs to learn and are always adding to it. Sometimes we do find a certain song difficult or don't have enough time to perform requests, we do our best!

I honestly couldn’t fault the Busketeers. They arrived so early and were so flexible with our arrangements. They were sensational and every guest said how fabulous their music was. The only problem was that our wedding overran so we didn’t hear them as long as we’d like (our fault!!) but we’re certainly thinking about when we can next book them to hear them again. Thanks to you all, you made our wedding!

The Busketeers were out of this world! They had everybody up on their feet and singing along! We were even surprised to find that the band were able to sing our first dance song AND a special request for our son… needless to say they rocked it! Guest didn’t stop raving about them and we both said it was one of our favourite parts off the day! Thank you all for making our day what it was, I’ll always have that moment of fixing your ties and watching my husband be a honorary band member for the greatest song in the world! Sending all our love, Mr and Mrs Taylor xx

‘We hadn’t seen The Busketeers play before and it was a friend who came back from a wedding and was raving about them. So on that one review, it very much sounded like the kind of band we wanted for our wedding, and took a chance...Boy did that chance pay off. From our first inquiry down to the wedding evening itself, the guys were so organised, communicative, accommodating and just made things easy. Even when our wedding eve was delayed by a couple of hours, the guys were so understanding and professional, that they went on as soon as they could and played a full set. The set list was a perfect mix for the room of guests and everyone loved it. We would not have wished for any other band to have played at our wedding. They are so talented and were absolutely fantastic!
