Eccentric pony was the perfect choice for our wedding day. From booking to our wedding the process was seamless and Jimmy was extremely punctual in replying to any emails with questions we had. They kept the dance floor busy all night with a great selection of songs and had fabulous interaction with all the guests. Would highly recommend.

Eccentric Pony were a great addition to our night. We had requested some Beatles songs, as we were based in Liverpool, and songs you can dance to, and the band understood exactly what we were after. They created such a fun environment for our guests, and had everyone on the dance floor from the first song to the last song, even chanting for one more song. Really professional on the night and brought such a great energy.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us on Friday. We honestly had the BEST time and we received so, so many compliments from our guests on the band, so a massive kudos to you all! I was a bit worried at one point that either people had headed back to their rooms for a couple of hours for a refresh or left; however, you all kept the party and energy going and for that, we are truly grateful! You guys are the best and we would 100% recommend you to anyone as their band choice! Thank you so much again for everything.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love Eccentric Pony's huge repertoire and versatility. There's plenty of crowd interaction and good times are guaranteed. We'll get the party started and keep it going all night!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We've played all over the UK and Europe.

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

We treat all our gigs with the same level of enthusiasm and showmanship. Whether it's a European festival, a celebrity wedding, a corporate event or Auntie Vera's retirement bash. We give 110% Every. Single. Time.

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

Yes, the front man is always the same. We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned '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?

Our line-ups are as follows: • Solo acoustic (guitar, kick drum, vocals and party vibes), • Acoustic duo (guitar, percussion and vocal harmonies), • Electric/Acoustic trio (adding bass and an extra vocal harmony), • Full electric band (for when things need to step up a gear).

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 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! A DJ Service is included free of charge for every booking.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually arrive 2 hours before performance time. If turn-around is tight we can set up in 1 hour. A comfortable set-up for the full band would be no less than 4m wide and 3m deep. 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?

Yes! Feel free to pick songs from our full repertoire list that is available on request. You can pick as many or as few songs as you like. Or none at all. We are used to reading the crowd and gauging the right songs to play to keep everyone happy. Picking a handful of songs is usually a good idea so we know the kind of thing you’re expecting.

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

Of course! The band is self-sufficient, so we supply everything needed for our performance including PA and lighting rig. We do require a clean power supply and some refreshments/meals for the band and crew. All our equipment is PAT tested annually and we always have a valid PLI certificate.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! If you have any special requests for wedding songs we will do our best to accommodate. However, many couples choose to have a recorded version of their first dance (especially if they’ve been practising their dance routine!)
