Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We bring a bright, chirpy attitude and will always go the extra mile to make the night go with a bang. Chris our singer has a rich, soulful voice that often leaves our audience in complete awe! It really has to be witnessed! We treat every gig like it’s a night to remember and are happy playing authentic Rock’n’Roll or up to date pop.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Venue - New Cross. The Rosewood Hotel- High Holborn. Losely Park-Guildford. Mercury Hotel-St.Albans. Ballingtaggart House-Dingle,Ireland. Cripps Barn-Cirencester. The Grand Hotel- Brighton. (To name a few!)

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Stevie Wonder, Wilson Pickett,Kings Of Leon, Tina Turner, David Bowie, Bruno Mars, Oasis, Bob Marley

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

The Grand Hotel - Brighton. For Siemens. We’ve also played a private party where Roger Daltrey was in attendance. Apparently he loved it!

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

Yes! The essence of our band is totally dependant on Chris our singer, so if he is unavailable, you will be alerted from the beginning of communications. We aim to keep a consistent line up, however if any other band members are ill or unavailable, we know a wonderful pool of amazing musicians to step into their place.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our band is versatile in that but we offer an acoustic version of our music too. We've performed this way before at weddings in the early part of the day. Our evening line up however is normally consists of bass, guitar, drums and singer.

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

We always aim to be flexible, so if timings change within the party hours, we are more than happy to shift around. If you expect the event to go on later than previuosly arranged then please don't hesitate to drop us a line.

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 after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually take about one hour to set up.. As soon as our PA is wired 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?

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

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 4m x 5m 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. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc

We had The Razors perform at our wedding. They were brilliant and everything we were hoping they would be. They performed our first dance for us as a special request and also some additional songs. Everyone at the wedding commented on how good the band were and they had everyone up dancing. They played an eclectic mix of music so had something for everyone. We cannot recommend The Razors enough, they were professional, knew how to work the crowd, were happy to work with us and the lead singer had an incredible voice. Thank you so much to all the band members for making our wedding day so special. Mark & Jenny

The band was great, the guys were great. Had to change location because of high winds and they were great with this, lots of brilliant feedback and highly recommend anyone looking for a party/ wedding, or event band then look no further.

The Razors totally rocked our wedding. Everybody loved their high energy and sense of fun. The guitar playing was particulary spectacular and the vocals were amazing. So pleased we booked them. We had loads of comments afterwards about how great they were.

The whole band exhibited skill, passion and sublime musical talent as they entertained us all night with a vast array of dance floor fillers. We couldn’t have had a better evening. Great thanks to Tim and the boys !
