About The sharps (Duo Trio & Band)

UPBEAT DUO plays Funk n' Soul INTERNATIONAL music from the 60's till now. We guarantee you'll be singing and dancing by the end of the night
Acoustic duo
London

We are an energetic Guitar / Voices duo based in London and travelling across southern England for our gigs. Performing in four languages (English, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese), we are known for engaging with the crowd bringing to the table not only a perfectly shaped repertoire that covers songs from the 60's till current times but also an enjoyable energy that will spread across the venue making your guests feel welcome and ready to have a good time. Our choice of using loop pedals, samples and percussions during our performance will fill the room with a magic atmosphere giving our guitarist the change of playing some nice solos. We both graduated in London in Contemporary Music, Performance and Production where we met and played together ever since. Our BA in Music helped us developing not only our music skills but also a deep understanding of what the crowd wants during our performances making us adaptable in any circumstance. Whether you are looking for a upbeat vibe or a more Jazzy Classy feeling we will be able to shape our repertoire choosing the best songs for you. Our setlist includes artists such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Pharrell, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, The Police, Nina Simone, Earth Wind and Fire and also foreign artist like Tribalistas, Mark Anthony and The Gypsy Kings. We have performed across the most popular London Bars / Clubs (like Thai Square Group or The London Cabaret Club), during private parties for Birthdays, Weddings and Corporate events.

I met Anastasia and Marco during a performance they did last year in central London and decided to hire their trio for an intimate wedding celebration on September 20th at our family house. They were fantastic and fitted perfectly with the new Covid-19 rules. We were able to choose our favourite songs amongst their setlist and they also agreed to learn some of our favourite songs. We loved their warmth and versatility and we cannot wait to hire them again.
