100% Live Music... with floor-fillers through the decades from the '60s to the present day.

Welcome! Whether it's an anniversary, your big day, gala or other special event, The Maestros assure you of a great evening's entertainment. If you're looking to book a professional live band for your event, you're in the right place.

Keep Your Guests Entertained and Singing Along

We offer a choice of all-decades live music (The Maestros) or a dedicated '60s tribute (Bootleg Sixties) to make your party a night to remember. With 20 years experience, we have the honour to perform for the likes of Asda House, Leeds United, Whitby '60s Festivals, Royal Armouries and hotel chains at events such as weddings, dinner dances, charity balls, gala dinners and party nights.

Your Event with Dancing to a Live Band

If you're looking for a professional live band to hire, we'd like to invite you to take a look at our videos and testimonials. The chances are we've done many events like the one you're arranging so we can work with you to provide the live entertainment you require.

Same band, three shows available -

  • The Maestros - All-Decades Floor-Fillers
  • Bootleg Sixties - Live Authentic '60s Tribute
  • Beatles For Sale - Beatles Tribute Band
Your guests will be partying on the dance-floor as we recreate the sounds of the original songs that everyone knows, through a unique blend of live vocals and musicianship.

Vocal Harmony
All four members are vocalists as well as instrumentalists for accurately reproducing the original vocal harmonies with an impact that only live performance can bring.

Make Your Occasion A Night to Remember

Our band is hired for events and functions at hotels, golf clubs, marquees, open air (even on a railway platform for an Orient Express evening), and we're fortunate to perform for many regular clients including football clubs, NHS, charities, clubs and hotel chains for their premier entertainment and corporate evenings.


As many of our engagements come from clients who have seen us playing at events, we always try to impress - please see our testimonials opposite.

 


How Our Live Band Works:

For your event, we arrive self-contained with P.A. sound and lighting to set up before your guests arrive. This takes an hour to complete to have the sound balance right for your venue and guests. Typical arrival time might be 6pm, to be set up by the time your guests arrive, or earlier/later to suit you.

Every function is unique and we will fit into your evening - a performance could start typically after 8pm or 9pm, with two sets of 45-50 minutes with a break in between, or one long set of 75 minutes plus encores, to fit around any other things you have planned for the evening. We can liaise with your planner and/or DJ to make the evening run to plan. We can also take care of background music if required in-between live sets. For booking enquiries, please call 07813 319847 or complete the enquiry form here


Compliancy: The Maestros Band carry £10m Public Liability Insurance and P.A.T. test certificate. Available on request.
