About The Busketeers

Cover band
Plymouth
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Four multi-instrumentalists perform classics from every decade. Unique twists, mid-song switching & harmonies that will melt your heart.

The Busketeers formed on the streets of Plymouth, Devon, UK and are mainly a trio but occasionally a four piece. The band is made up of four artists in their own right, Luke Engel, Matt Price, Olly Parker and Andy George. The band labels itself as a “Progressive Busking” act which is also the title of their debut EP. The musicians are from different backgrounds and have unique styles but what really makes these guys stand out is their ability to swap instruments, all sing in their own style and of course their harmonies and still keep that raw-energetic sound. Their debut album ‘Different Breeds’ is out now and available to purchase at any gig. "Blown away by their performance on stage at BBC Takeover at UPSU. I love how they captured their fun live energy in their recordings. They always post really good videos. You would've seen them around Plymouth, and the south west - They are brilliant." - BBC Introducing Devon (James Santer).

Customer questions

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

We are a unique band where we all switch instruments and take turns singing! We even have mash ups where we swap around mid song!

Do you have different line-up options?

We do have different line-up options but we like to keep our flow. 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

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

We can but this is £50 per hour. We ask that you provide the music and we provide the PA

How much time do you need to set up?

A minimum of 60 mins but 90 mins is better

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 are always up for chatting more about this if you feel this isn't for you!

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

All equipment is included and we usually require a space of about 10 ft by 5 ft minimum. Perfect space would be 12 ft by 6

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We usually ask for 4-5 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. We have not let anyone down yet!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Most say our ability to switch instruments and singer. 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!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Festivals: Looe Music Fest, Tunes In The Dunes, Leopallooza + more Venues: Plymouth Pavilions, WAX, Plymouth Guildhall, and lots of pubs and venues across the south west

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

A wide range and mix - too many to put here!

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

Looe Music Festival 2017 Plymouth Guildhall Tunes In The Dunes 2018 Leopallooza 2018

Blown away by their performance on stage at BBC Takeover at UPSU. I love how they captured their fun live energy in their recordings. They always post really good videos. You would've seen them around Plymouth, and the south west - They are brilliant.

Thank you so much for providing such good music at our wedding reception. Everyone was full of compliments about our band choice and you managed to get everyone up and dancing; the young and slightly less young! They were particularly impressed with your multitalented switch-ups, some even mid-medley, and left us all buzzing with the Thunderstruck Mash Up! The variety of songs that you played kept everyone happy even had the grandparents tapping their toes at the bar! We really appreciate you learning our first dance song and a couple of other favourites of ours. Thank you for being easy to correspond with and our guests mentioned how friendly and open you were on the night! We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we enjoyed your music, we are sure to pop along to your future gigs!
