The Party Machine are the best band around! They worked the dance crowd and kept people dancing all night with their wide range of music. They gel so well and Suzy's voice is incredible. We had so much positive feedback and we had so much fun! 10/10

The Party Machine were incredible! Such an awesome bunch of talented people and every single one of our guests were up on the dance floor busting their best moves all night long! We did not want the party to end, they were totally awesome and the best band we could ever have hoped to have. They raised the roof and blew us all away. We want another party now just so The Party Machine can come too! We love them!

Customer questions

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

Yes absolutely! If Suzy became unwell or something happened that meant she wouldn't be able to make the date we'd get in touch to let you know as soon as possible. We all work with several other vocalists, so we've got lots of stylistically similar vocalists on speed-dial who can step in if needed. But Suzy has a stellar attendance rate!

Do you have different line-up options?

We do a 3, 4 and 5-piece lineup. The 3-piece is lead vocals, bass, and drums with backing tracks. The 4-piece is lead vocals, bass, guitar, drums, and the 5-piece is lead vocals, bass, guitar, keys, drums.

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

We're super flexible. If your timings change, run them by us, and we'll check in with everyone in the team to make sure there are no conflicts.

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


How much time do you need to set up?

90 minutes

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

You're welcome to suggest up to 60 songs from our repertoire. We'll do our best to craft the setlist from your suggestions.

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

Yes it is!
