About The Naughty Steps

Your #1 local cover band for 90s, 00s and 10s bangers! Mountains of energy and stage presence, It's impossible not to dance along
Cover band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Formed in Sidmouth in Devon, 3 piece Pop and R&B cover band ‘The Naughty Steps’ have chemistry and energy in spades. (Singer) Zak Robinson, (Bassist) Finn Swann and (Drummer) Pascal Bisson all went to school together and bonded over their love of music and specifically the songs that were coming out at the time. A perfect palette for an amazing wedding band or a party, you’ll find it impossible not to lose yourself in the music and dance the night away. - Our front man Zak Robinson has three years of singing and performing training under his belt at acclaimed Drama School 'Trinity Laban' in London. His stage presence is electric and his rich vocals have been compared to the likes of Elvis and Leonard Cohen. He has over 7 years of guitar experience and has been singing all of his life. - Our Bassist Finn Swann is a natural musical talent and when he's playing the bass it feels like an extension of his arm. A cool, calm and collected musician as all good bassists should be. With over 7 years of experience playing, he's groovy and reliable. - Our Drummer Pascal Bisson has over 14 years of experience playing the drums. Rhythm is in his blood and you've never seen someone more happy to be up on stage playing along side his best mates. As soon as you hear his tight grooves it's infectious and you'll be up dancing in no time. The Naughty Steps charisma is undeniable and they really bring the joy back to all of your favourite tunes. If you’re in the mood to dance, sing along and go on a nostalgia trip, the Naughty Steps have your back!

The Naughty Steps were absolutely amazing for our wedding. Really nice genuine guys and great musicians! From booking them to the wedding day, they were great at staying in contact with us. We asked them to play a particular song for our first dance and they played it beautifully and sent me a recording of it prior to the day so we could listen. We couldn’t have been happier that we booked them. They were fun, polite and a really amazing band. I would recommend them to anyone for fun vibes on the dance floor and great music. So many of our guests commented how much they enjoyed dancing and listening to them play. Thank you so much!!

The Naughty Steps played at my partners 50th Birthday party back in the summer. Many people said it was the best party they had ever been to! And we did excel on many levels. But these guys entered into the spirit of the night in spectacular fashion and went above and beyond what was expected of them. The party would not/could not, have been any better with any other band. Love these guys and wish them everything they deserve. I have a motto of “never recommend” in case you can’t then get who you want, when you want, but in this case...

We booked the naughty steps for my 50th party held in a marquee. I can honestly say that they made the party! Their wonderful energy was infectious they gave it 110% and of course sounded amazing. My guests (and us) were totally blown away. They were delightful to deal with and made it all incredibly straightforward. Book them now before they hit the big time!
