BEHIND THE SCENES
It is all in the preperation at Bespoke Party Bands - behind the scenes is even more important than on the stage (which is also super important).
We do live music differently, this is how...
The glorious musicians we work with are handpicked, extremely hardworking, driven by passion, highly talented and always professional.
From the very begining we wanted to do our live music differently, and a huge part of that was building a solid team of musicians. This allows us to step away from standard setlists and throw in the medleys, mash ups and grooves that just don’t work if you don’t have a tightly and regularly rehearsed band.
Our musicians are amazing and we love working with them.
Just like great atheletes train, our musicians rehearse.
Our bands spend hours in the studio with our Musical Director testing out new songs, creating interesting arrangements, tailoring first dance requests and getting setlists spot on.
Even better… we own the studio! Based in Cambridge, Rhinocorn Studio is a professional multi-room rehearsal space that offers a range of live music services.
Owning a music studio means we can provide our bespoke party band musicians with all the support, equipment and resources they need to deliver truly brilliant and bespoke live music.
We don’t book live music, we create it.
The live music industry sometimes gets a bad rap, more often than not caused by the huge gap between musicians and clients.
That is why we have closed that gap! We do everything in-house, from creating the bands with the best musicians we know all the way through to providing the PA system and lighting equipment for gigs.
Just as important, we value quality of performer over quantity of bands – if we send a musician to your event, we know them and we trust them.
Our musicians are highly skilled professionals, many of them with degrees from the UK’s top music colleges and conservatoires. On top of that they all have years of performance experience across a variety of genres, instruments and specialities.
BUT, we don’t pick our musicians on talent alone. We also pick them based on their work ethic, ability to read a room and perform accordingly, their patience with others in rehearsal and if they get on with our studio dog, the real deal breaker!

“It was a real pleasure dealing with Heloise and Bespoke Party Bands for a recent village Barn Dance. "
Dance Away were a real crowd pleaser, had a huge range of songs which appealed to all ages and the ceilidh dance section went down a storm!
Thank you so much – they were fabulous and made the night!
