About The Mixtapes

Highly experienced party band with a MASSIVE song list! Every event is different, lets make it all about you!
Wedding band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hello! We are The Mixtapes and we are a Wedding and Function band based in Scarborough, playing across the UK and beyond. We play a large number of weddings, parties, and corporate events throughout the year and pride ourselves on being able to provide a massively eclectic range of music to suit all tastes and ages. We are happy to learn songs for events if a client would like something that isn't on our set list! Our standard package for any event includes a FREE DJ playlist service prior to, and after the live band sets. All sound and lighting is provided and we have all our electrical equipment PAT tested. Additionally we carry up £10 million pounds of public liability insurance. We work well with events management staff, and wedding planners and discretion is part and parcel. You’ll barely know we are there until we start playing! There is no need for noisy unpleasant soundchecks, everything is digitally pre-set to give you a brilliant sound from the very first song. Additionally for peace of mind we work exceptionally well in venues with sound limiters as we can use an electric drum kit if we are told about restrictions so rest assured we wont be tripping the power off, blowing what’s left of your Grandmas eardrums, or loosing the live music licence for your venue! When you book us, you’ll never deal with any management or third party, you’ll talk to us, the band! This means you’ll get clear and concise responses to any questions you may have and we can you the most personalised service possible. There is no such thing as too many questions, so feel free to ask us whatever you want. Thanks for checking us out and we look forward to hearing from you!

The Mixtapes were absolutely amazing! Like - crazy good. Can’t recommend them enough. They got everybody up and dancing, there wasn’t a single person sitting down. In the run up to the party, they were attentive, with a great level of communication and just adapted so well into our setting, absolutely awesome and can’t thank them enough for bringing 40 fest to life! Thanks guys - you were awesome! 😊

The Mixtapes were fantastic in every way. Brilliant varied playlist to chose from and had everyone on the dance floor all night. They went above and beyond for us on our big day and all our guests have commented on how brilliant they were. So glad we chose them to help us celebrate!! I thoroughly recommend to any bride and groom!

10/10, couldn't recommend more. We booked the guys to do the full day at our wedding, from the ceremony right through to midnight and they were fantastic for every minute. They had an amazing mix of sing a long classics, old school anthems, and guest requests, and the personal requests we made were learned and performed perfectly. If you want a band who will take all the stress away on the big day, and have your guests talking about them for days afterwards then you can't do any better than The Mixtapes. Thank you, Jak & Charlotte Hill

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We have a huge repertoire of songs and there is always something for everyone! We take LOADS of requests at every event to ensure people keep dancing all night!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed the length and breadth of the UK! Venues include: The Grand in York, Village Hotel, Leeds, The Mayfair Hotel, London, Castle Howard, Carnglaze Caverns, Danby Castle, Soho Farmhouse, York Racecourse, The Hospitium, Raven Hall Hotel, Pitville Pump Rooms Cheltenham, and many more!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We are influenced by so many artists! Our tastes are varied and if it’s a good tune, we love to play it whatever the style! The important thing is we are always open to new genres and types of music coming into the set!

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

We’ve performed many large Corporate Events and worked with some leading hotel chains. Privately we have played for celebs such as Carol Vorderman, Alan Carr, Kate Thornton and more!

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

The lineup in the band is always the highest quality and all our musicians are pro’s who have worked all over the world for many years and performed at some very high profile events. We can’t guarantee that the singer in the video will be the same for the event you are holding, however we’ll ensure the singer who performs is of an equally high quality.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes! Our standard band lineup consists of three musicians, however we can also provide a female singer if required as well as a horn section (sax, trumpet, trombone) in addition to the main band musicians.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We are more than happy to communicate in the run up to your event and are open to all changes! These things happen and we will do our best to work with you regarding timings!

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

Yes! Our prices include this service as standard until Midnight. The playback service is a series of curated playlists, however if you wanted to plug in your own device to our system and “be the DJ” you would be most welcome to do so!

How much time do you need to set up?

We require 45 minutes to an hour to setup depending on load-in access arrangements. Once the PA system is set up we can get our playback service music going which will help create a great atmosphere as guests arrive.

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. Special requests can be taken into consideration!

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

Our PA and Lighting systems are included in the price of your quote and we will ensure that the system provided is suitable for your event space.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We most certainly can! It may well be the case that we know the song you’d like, however if we don’t know it we’ll happily learn it, especially if it’s a First Dance!
