About High Voltage

Always ready to rock.
Indie band
Loughton

Verified profile

All four of these lads have studied at the British Institute of Modern Music, where they churn out the best of the best musicians that then go on to play for world renowned artists. These four have the performance skills to bring your celebration to life through music, lots of dance, and plenty singing along. Collectively Ben, Ewan, Paolo and Mark have played at the Roundhouse, Metropolis Studios, Islington O2, the 100 Club, and the Jazz Cafe. You might have also heard and seen them play at Glastonbury, Newquay Beach Break Festival, Notting Hill Carnival, V-Dub Festival, and SXSW Festival. They’ve also had the opportunity to play alongside Royal Blood, George Ezra, Emeli Sande, and Olly Murs. And when they’re not rubbing shoulders with music’s elite, they’re belting out pop and rock classics on P&O cruises and at weddings up and down the country. They’ve got an extensive repertoire of over 100 songs covering largely rock and pop party hits across the decades, but also other genres as well - just take a look! Once you’ve booked the band you can count on excellent and fast communication, as well as having full control over what songs the band plays on your special night. The band will make sure they’re 100% on the same page as you well in advance of your event. They’ll also bring their best party tricks for your guests to tap into between our sets, including doing any accent under the sun and making cans float at 45 degree angles! The band bring a full PA and lighting rig and even some inflatable instruments so guests can do their best rock star impression.

Customer questions

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band, our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: Lead Male Vocals / Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass, Drums and Backing Vocals. We can add members if you've got something in particular in mind.

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 for before, in-between and after live sets until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £278.

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 I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Yes! We've got over 100 songs you can pick from. :)

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

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 3m by 4m space to perform

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it, so please don't hesitate to ask! If there is a special song you'd like us to learn, we are more than happy to do this for you, free of charge. For every additional 'off-the-menu' song there is a fee of £50 to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

They love that they get to rock out with us. We've been working together for many years now, so our playing is super in-sync. Ben on lead vocals is a superb guitarist as well, able to hold lead guitar no problem at all, with vocals always on point. Paolo and Ewan on bass contribute backing vocals to make the performance sound really full and hard-hitting.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed at over 223 venues over the years. Multiple times in many of those venues. Far too many to list here, but some of them include Chateau Rigaud in France, Chicheley Hall, Llyn Gwynant Barns, The Hertfordshire Golf and Country Club, Harvest Moon, Newton House Barns, Wycombe Abbey School, Burley Manor & Stanlake Park Wine Estate.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The Beatles, CCR, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Kings of Leon, The Killers, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Jet, Kaiser Chiefs, The Arctic Monkeys & Cold Play

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

The band members have had the opportunity to play alongside Royal Blood, George Ezra, Emeli Sande, and Olly Murs.

The band at my daughters wedding were absolutely superb. If you do not book them you are missing out. I would recommend them for any wedding, birthday or special occasion as they more than delivered what we were looking for
