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 - 5 Options to Choose From: • The Maestros - All-Decades Super Party Band • Bootleg Sixties - Live Authentic 60s Tribute Band • Bootleg Sixties Duo - 60s Tribute Duo for smaller events • Beatles For Sale - Beatles Tribute Band • Just Can't Get Enough 80s - Live Eighties Decade Band 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.

Simply the best private band I have ever hired or seen. The quality of the band and their music was outstanding and they had the dance floor full for over 2 hours.

The Maestros were great! Totally professional in the way they set up. The band were great, and we were all up and dancing from start to finish of the set. Really made our wedding a great success and we're very happy with the band. They even learnt a new Neil Young song which was the Bride's father's favourite.

I’m really sorry I missed seeing you guys in action. Everybody has been singing your praises and saying how brilliant you were. I have to say a massive thank -you. Due to covid there were quite a few folk who couldn’t make the party, but from what I have heard, you guys made up for it with your energy and talent! Thanks so much Dave
