VIVID IS THE GO-TO BAND for parties, weddings and corporate events. We are a professionally managed, scalable and established event band. We have more great reviews, a wealth of material, and we are in the top ten most booked bands over the entire Encore platform. We genuinely love what we do and this is reflected in our fantastic performances across the UK and Europe. SO WHY BOOK WITH US? *SOUND QUALITY of the band is probably the most important thing to consider at your event and it often gets overlooked. However good the performers are, if the overall sound quality is poor, the vocals indecipherable and the distinction between the instruments non existent, it will be difficult to appreciate the music at all. Live sound will vary from the sound you listen to in promotional videos on your home / mobile devices, and different venues have different acoustic properties. We own and supply genuine industry grade equipment to all events and we have a qualified engineer band member to manage the sound setup. Sound and disco lighting production for events of up to 350 persons is included as standard with all our packages. Additional production is also available (in-house and upon request). On top of this, our 8-piece and above line-ups are all booked with an independent sound engineer. We own our own 9-seater tour bus so we are able to carry a good stock of spares and we can all travel to gigs together which is very healthy for the environment too! *OUR HUGE SONG REPERTOIRE of both classic and contemporary songs makes us a very appealing option to any potential client. We have also complied a collection of song medleys that form the basis of the repertoire that you can choose for your event (send us a message request if you’d like to have a look). This gives us the opportunity to perform many more songs than would otherwise be available to you within your performance period. We avoid unnecessary stops and starts between songs, and we maintain the momentum throughout the show. Modern music is heavily produced and we can recreate this with our genuine authentic reproductions using modern instruments and versatile effects units. *OUR EXPERIENCE is legendary. We have been trusted to perform at many high calibre events and for numerous high profile clients such as Mercedes UK, Shell Europe, R.A.F. Marriott Hotels, Guoman Hotels, The Natural History Museum, The Victoria & Albert Museum. Our singers have worked with producers such as Rodney Jerkins, Jimmy Harry, and Shelley Peikin, having contributed to original songs for artists such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Ed Sheeran, and Kylie. *VIVID MUSICIANS AND VOCALISTS are a stellar collection of London's West End performers and industry professional musicians. All our singers are experienced West End show performers or have established, successful industry solo careers. All of our musicians are professional performers and all carry degrees from respected music schools. We are all qualified in both jazz and pop disciplines. *ADDITIONAL SERVICE options are available to cover many other areas of your entertainment brief . We have 3 DJ selections as well as DJ sax live option. We provide instrumental and vocal-led acoustic band options, horn sections and multiple vocalist line-ups. We have additional production available for events over 350 persons and we can provide a mesmerising star cloth background to all clients. We can even supply a range of photo booths from our sister company Viivd Booths. *SAXOPHONE IS INCLUDED WITH ALL BOOKINGS. That’s right - whichever line up you choose, we provide a saxophonist as part of the band and to roam the dance floor if you wish! *CHOOSE YOUR LINE-UP. You can choose from a wide range of band line-up options as follows; 4-piece COMPACT - Lead female vocal / Acoustic drums / Guitar / (Keyboards and Saxophone - one player). Limited setlist. 5-piece STANDARD - Lead female vocal / Acoustic drums / Guitar lead & rhythm / Bass guitar / (Keyboards and saxophone - one player). 6-piece MIXED VOCAL - Lead female vocal / Lead male vocal / Acoustic drums / Guitar lead & rhythm / Bass guitar / (Keyboards and saxophone - one player). 7-piece - BRASSY - Lead female vocal / Acoustic drums / Guitar lead & rhythm / Bass guitar / (Keyboards and saxophone - one player) / Trumpet / Trombone. 8 piece - SELECT - Lead female vocal / Lead male vocal / Acoustic drums / Guitar lead & rhythm / Bass guitar / (Keyboards and saxophone - one player) / Trumpet / Trombone. 10 piece - HARMONY - 2 xLead female vocal / 1 x Lead male vocal / Acoustic drums / Guitar lead & rhythm / Bass guitar / Keyboards / Saxophone / Trumpet / Trombone. 13 piece SHOW BAND - 3 x Lead female vocal / 2 x Lead male vocal / Acoustic drums / Guitar lead & rhythm / Bass guitar / Keyboards / Saxophone / Trumpet / Trombone / Percussionist. We have performed indoors / outdoors, at large festivals and in tiny spaces. We’ve performed abroad and we’ve travelled the length and breadth of the British Isles. *VENUE REQUIREMENTS - yes -we provide all necessary insurance and additional documentation upon request. We will fully liaise with your venue if preferred and reduce your workload a fair bit. *WE DON’T HAVE ANY SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS -we can plug straight into the domestic 3 pin power sockets and we don’t require a stage (although it is nice if your venue can provide one!). All we ask is that you provide each band member with a hot meal if we are on site for over 5 hours. We have been together as a band for nearly a decade and in the unlikely event of any of the team falling ill, we can cover the part from our pool of fully rehearsed musicians. We have a dedicated and experienced manager who will work with you throughout the booking process and is always available to offer help & advice. Paul | Manager | Vivid Band

Customer questions

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Vivid have a jazz / easy listening range of options for receptions / cocktail events. We offer everything from a 2 piece instrumental duo(sax & guitar), vocal trio, right up to a 7 piece jazz band. We also offer our show band as a 4 piece, standard 5, super 7 (with 3 piece brass section) and mega 9 ) (3 vocalists plus brass).

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change in the run up to the event just let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate your request.

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

We offer a free background music service from our laptop system. Simply share your playlist with us before your event and we will broadcast this to your schedule. We also offer a DJ service at additional cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set 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?

You are welcome to hand pick your setlist from our extensive repertoire. We also learn and perform a song of your choice completely free of charge as part of our package.

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

We offer a comprehensive PA and lighting system to all clients included in our prices.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We learn and perform one song free of charge for all clients. Additional songs are charged at £60 per song.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We are hugely energetic & enthusiastic on stage (and about the dance floor). We have fantastic performance features that enable us to do real justice to all of our material. We perform our songs in medleys. This means that we don't pause after every song and by mixing songs together (like a good DJ), we keep the momentum up throughout the performance.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have played all over the UK and parts of Europe, Most memorable are Lake Como( lakeside), The top of the Gherkin, and the Marriott County Hall on NYE (about 30 yards from the firework display at the London Eye).

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We have eclectic tastes. Legends from Pop / Soul and beyond all feature highly with us.

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

The RAF centenary event was pretty special for us. Massive crowd, huge stage with video screens as high as double decker buses to project the visuals.

Vivid were every bit as good as their demo videos. Very high musical standards and tight arrangements of the greatest tunes, they kept everyone dancing on their feet all night. The compliments of how good they are kept coming all evening, we were very impressed and very pleased to have them as the main focus of evening entertainment for our wedding. Vivid had clear communication throughout the booking process and were very responsive to all of our queries.

I hired Vivid for a corporate event and after being faced with a challenging turn around at the end of the ceremony, they pulled off a truly great set that brought the crowd to the dance floor and away from their tables. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
