Welcome! Whether it's a wedding, anniversary, your big day or any other special event, The Maestros assure you of a great evening's entertainment. If you're looking to book a professional live band for your event, you're in the right place. Keep Your Guests Entertained and Singing Along! We offer a choice of all-decades live music (The Maestros) or a dedicated '60s tribute (Bootleg Sixties) to make your party a night to remember. With over 15 years of experience, we have the honour to perform for the likes of Asda House, Leeds United, Whitby '60s Festivals, Royal Armouries and hotel chains at events such as weddings, dinner dances, charity balls, gala dinners and party nights. Your Event with Dancing to a Live Band! If you're looking for a professional live band to hire, we'd like to invite you to take a look at our videos and testimonials. The chances are we've done many events like the one you're arranging so we can work with you to provide the live entertainment you require. Our Shows - 3 Options to Choose From: • The Maestros - All-Decades Party Band (or Duo) • Bootleg Sixties - Authentic 60s Tribute Band (or Duo) • Beatles For Sale - Beatles Tribute Band (or Duo) Your guests will be partying on the dance floor as we recreate the sounds of the original songs that everyone knows, through a unique blend of live vocals and musicianship. Vocal Harmony! All four members are professional singers as well as instrumentalists for accurately reproducing the original vocal harmonies with an impact that only live performance can bring. Make Your Event An Evening to Remember! Our band is hired for events and functions at hotels, golf clubs, marquees, and open-air (even on a railway platform for an Orient Express evening), and we're fortunate to perform for many regular clients including football clubs, NHS, charities, clubs and hotel chains for their premier entertainment and corporate evenings. How Our Live Band Works: We offer a choice of line-ups to suit your event and budget and each of our performances is put together with one purpose in mind - to get your guests up dancing and enjoying themselves. For your event, we arrive self-contained with P.A. sound and lighting to set up before your guests arrive. This takes an hour to complete to have the sound balance right for your venue and guests. Typical arrival time is 6 to 6.30 pm, to be set up by the time your guests arrive, or earlier/later to suit you. Every function is unique and we will fit into your evening - a performance could start typically after 8 pm or 9 pm, with two sets of 45-50 minutes with a break in between, or one long set of 75 minutes plus encores, to fit around any other things you have planned for the evening. We can liaise with your planner and/or DJ to make the evening run to plan. We can also take care of background music if required with iPod or phone playlist (ours or yours) through our sound system. For booking enquiries, simply hit the "Check availability" or "Message" buttons at the top of the page! Compliance: The Maestros Band carry £10m Public Liability Insurance and P.A.T. test certificate.

A fantastic experience from start to finish. Very good communication with both Encore and the band members. Arrived early, great stage set up, appearance and sound quality. Playlist was perfect for our Dad’s birthday and they specifically included some of his favourite tracks. They made the whole performance fun and personable. Very positive feedback from our guests too. Thank you so much for making this day extra special. We will certainly want to book again.
