Union Avenue can deliver anything from a heartfelt wedding ballad to a crowd pleasing rock anthem. Perfect for weddings and parties!

Leicestershire based Union Avenue are a rarity on the live music scene - they are an all female acoustic duo Ruthie and Tara have a wealth of performing experience having previously worked on numerous worldwide contracts for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, P & O, Ocean Village, Bourne Leisure and many more. In November 2014 they decided to combine their talents to form a contemporary music duo for weddings and corporate events. As Union Avenue, they perform a wide range of popular cover songs in their own individual, stripped-back style. They are becoming well known for their ‘mash-ups’ where they combine two popular songs to form something unique - Ruthie has even been known to break out her rapping skills! Using close vocal harmonies against a backdrop of acoustic guitar, they create a sound that is unmistakably ‘Union Avenue’. Union Avenue can deliver anything from a heartfelt wedding ballad to a crowd pleasing rock anthem. They love to engage and involve the audience and can really get the party started. The most important thing is that everybody has the BEST time - whether it’s a wedding, party or corporate event.

These guys are excellent. We had them sing at the start of our reception and then DJ till the end. Voices are amazing and had everyone dancing till the end of the night. Could not recommend then enough thanks for a great night.
