About The Entr'actes

A collective of Elite Musicians who play Epic Show tunes for Corporate Events, Luxury Weddings and Private parties.
Musical theatre company
Public liability insurance of £10 million

A West End Theatre Band available for shows or as a backing band, complete with an exceptional musical director and backing vocalists as required. Operating somewhere between a 'band' and an 'orchestra'... They are a Musical Theatre EXPERIENCE and their high-octane performances feature mind-blowing vocalists and energetic instrumentalists on and off the stage, interacting with guests and creating an electric atmosphere that is never forgotten. Every member of this jaw-dropping 15-25 piece Show Band is a phenomenal musician, and they perform as one, taking audiences though a truly remarkable live musical experience that has to be seen, heard and felt to be believed. Their magnificent setlist is packed full of The Entr'actes signature medleys, and with such a broad repertoire - they bring the Theatre to your event. Musical Director, George Shrapnell Manager & AV Production, Tom Powell

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We are completely tailor made to your experienced - from a 5 piece band to a 25 piece band with all the west end performers you could dream of.

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 you roam around while you perform?

Ideally we'd stay put for best audio! But we do have some roaming capacity. enquire for more deets.

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?

Yep! Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 6m by 7m space to perform

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yep! 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 £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

Wonderful...with all that's going on - and off - in the world, isn't it wonderful that we have this kind of creativity, energy and downright optimism? Young people, you can't beat 'em, eh? There's a line from a Bob Dylan song (oh, no, not another one!) that says something along the lines of: 'All the young people going their way/I'd change places with any one of them in a moment if I could' (it probably rhymes better than that). I always had trouble with that line because how could the great Bob Dylan want to change places with anyone?! Now, after watching and listening to this, I know EXACTLY what he means. Please...all stay safe and follow your dreams. Shake them windows and rattle them walls. God bless.

The Entractes are truly incredible. I've been lucky enough that The Entr'actes have worked with me numerous times (I'm a theatre producer) The entire band immensely talented, professional and friendly. George was the personification of professional - answered emails and took calls at all hours, no matter how silly the request may have been. The band kindly learned new songson request, as well as for the rest of the performance, and these renditions were simply magical. In my experience, there have been very few occasions where the dance floor is full at the end of the night - at events with these guys. Everyone loves these guys! The singers, the musicians, the technicians are all phenomenal, and we can't thank them enough...!
