About The Clique

Glitzy acoustic highly professional duo with vocals, flute and guitar for your special occasion. Guaranteed to add extra sparkle...
Acoustic duo
Hook
Public liability insurance of £10 million

We are ‘The Clique’ a sophisticated highly experienced acoustic duo with myself (Gilly) on vocals and flute with my partner Del on acoustic/electric guitar. We have performed at renowned music venues, 5 star hotels, top restaurants, prestigious corporate and private events, weddings, celebration parties and music festivals throughout the UK as well as international venues for over 15 years. We love to play a range of melodic and intimate acoustic renditions of classic artists. We craft our own acoustic versions of popular songs that you may not expect. I play bursts of flute in most of the songs in the acoustic sets which is lots of fun and the audience love this! If you’d like to get your guests up onto their feet then with the switch of one acoustic guitar to electric guitar, and the addition of high quality, customised backing tracks we will get the dance floor moving. From 60s to current chart hits there’s music to suit all age groups. All equipment is PAT tested and we are fully insured.

The Clique Duo played at our party with an excellent repertoire and a sensible volume to suit the size of the venue. Many guests remarked on the excellent entertainment. We will continue to support their local live events.

“Can’t thank Gilly and Derek enough for playing at Ian’s surprise 50th Birthday Party. Absolutely 5*. Nothing was too much trouble from the moment The Duo was booked to arrival on the night and playing two amazing sets whilst people caught up with old friends. Can’t wait to book these guys again definitely worth every penny.”
