With energy, enthusiasm and stage presence aplenty, White Light have performed at Weddings, Charity Balls, Corporate Functions and Parties over the past five years building an enviable reputation. "WE BOOKED WHITE LIGHT FOR OUR WEDDING IN JULY 2019, THEY WERE INCREDIBLE. FROM THE VERY START OF COMMUNICATIONS THEY WERE PROFESSIONAL, POLITE AND INFORMATIVE OF WHAT THEY NEEDED AND WHAT THEY COULD OFFER. ON THE DAY WE COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR ANY MORE FROM THEM, PERFECT TECHNICALLY, GREAT STAGE PRESENCE AND PEOPLE-PLEASING SET-LIST. WILL BE RECOMMENDING THEM TO ANYONE WHO IS AFTER A FUNCTION BAND!" Charlotte (Wedding Day Bride, Hertfordshire). The band pride themselves on the fact that there's always an “Edge” and a sense that “Anything could Happen” making each performance unique. The line up includes guitar, bass drums, occasional keyboards & recorder as well as four vocalists for multi-part harmonies. Their repertoire covers Elvis, The Beatles, Stones, Bowie, T.Rex, Duran Duran, Blur & Oasis through to James Bay, The Killers and Kings of Leon stopping off at some more unusual destinations such as Boney M, Nancy Sinatra and Andy Williams. Based in London and the South, the band are happy to travel to wherever the party is and will arrive in plenty of time to set up their own 4k sound & lighting rig and ensure the balance is perfect to fit the occasion. Always polite, prompt and professional the band provide the essential energy, enthusiasm and entertainment to make any function memorable " . . . . YOU ARE DELIGHTFUL TO DEAL WITH - VERY CHARMING AND SO VERY WILLING TO HELP - ANOTHER REASON WE’D LOVE TO HAVE YOU BACK - WE HAVE TO ENJOY WORKING WITH THE PEOPLE WE BOOK, AND YOU CERTAINLY FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY" Jacob Dylan Thomas (Promoter, Livestock Festival)). Their musicianship is second to none and their relationship with the audience enviable. Checkout the band, watch the videos, listen to some covers and get in touch.

White Light was amazing! Everyone enjoyed the awesome entertainment. The demo reels are very impressive but watching them perform live is beyond! I can't thank them enough. I and my guests are huge fans now and probably follow all of their public performances. Seriously, the Coronation Concert pales in comparison! I am such a lucky birthday girl!

Perfect private party. Intimate, yet appropriately rowdy. Really enjoyed the way everyone joined in to make the atmosphere quite brilliant. Very grateful for the way we were looked after. Hope the birthday was suitably special.

This is the band you need to book! I can't fault any part of the experience. Great friendly personal communication from the start, Peter wanted to get to know what we liked and what vibe we wanted and really put us at ease from the start. On the day they were brilliant, super professional, really friendly, and most importantly, everyone danced. Even people who don't dance. We were only a small group of 28, but it felt like a huge party and that's no small thanks to the way Peter performs. They even went over and above and gave an encore, otherwise I don't think anyone would have gone home!! Book this band, whether it's 6 of you in your front room or 300 people. You won't regret it!!

Amazing intimate wedding. With a smaller crowd it all felt so much more personal - like we were sharing their day. Brilliant night.

What a band to have at a special occasion. They played at my friend’s birthday recently and we all know what to expect from party cover bands don’t we? Well we think we do. But then these guys played and raised the bar and raised us all up from our seats. I am normally a little under whelmed by cover bands. Partly because I wrote about music and have interviewed lots of the bands people cover. But I thought it was just a perfectly pitched couple of sets for an occasion like that. It was a proper reminder of the pure joy of dancing in a crowd, all singing along to anthems, like back in the day. Uplifting, heart warming , joyful. As good as it gets if you remember Saturday night being the happiest few hours of the week. Brilliant.

“Fantastic band. White Light played at my 50th birthday party. They were outstanding. From the minute they arrived, they were professional, friendly and courteous. The music was brilliant and my guests and I danced all night. They catered the set list to what I wanted and nothing was too much trouble. This band is a must for a fabulous party”
