Verified profile

Hello! We are Mia and Dan and we love creating special moments through our live music, and being able to travel the world doing what we love. Our duo features male and female vocals, guitar, ukulele and hand percussion. Check out our 4 piece band The True Colours Band too! We have built up a huge repertoire of songs over the years, most of them requested by our audiences from around the world and for special occasions such as wedding ceremonies. From Elvis to Ed Sheeran and Ella Fitzgerald to Taylor Swift, we add our own unique style with vocal harmonies and acoustic arrangements. Our aim is to create the perfect atmosphere with our music, whether that's playing beautiful love songs for ceremonies, jazzy tunes for drinks receptions or getting the rhythm section in for a festival vibe! We've been lucky enough to work on events for some amazing brands and companies like Veuve Cliquot, Pizza Express, and Malmaison hotels, feature live on the prime time Andrew Peach Show on ‘BBC Radio Berkshire’, play residencies on luxury cruise ships in the Caribbean, USA, South America and Asia as well as a few festivals. But some of our favourite gigs are the personal, intimate ones. We do love weddings, and being able to arrange a special song to create the perfect moment is one of our favourite things to do as musicians. Thanks for checking us out, please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions on any aspect of what we do. If you are looking for a duo and band combo, you'll find more info on our full band sets at The True Colours Band.

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 is included with all bookings.

For small groups we can perform completely acoustically whilst moving around, although for the best sound across a large group of people we recommend we perform in a central performance space or stage.

After seeing The True Colours perform and hosted them at our venue, we booked them for our wedding. Mia and Dan’s range of music is fantastic and a must for any big occasion. Due to covid we have to postpone our wedding twice, through which they have been incredible in accommodating us. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a top quality band. We can’t wait to see where they go next on the musical adventures! Best of luck guys and thanks again. Chris & Amy x
