Catch 22  -  Keeping people dancing

About us  -   We are a four piece functions band based in Newbury Berkshire.

Our forte is in providing a continuous flow of music to keep people on the dance floor. Playing the best pop covers from the last six decades enables us to select music that will cater for all ages and functions.

We construct bespoke sets for each and every function based on conversations with the client, to ensure that we provide the right balance of music for a specific audience. We are also flexible enough to change this on the night should the evening run differently to that planned. The majority of our work comes through personal recommendations and repeat bookings; we believe this is because we have always put our customer and audience satisfaction before our own individual musical tastes. If you are enjoying yourself so will we.

Our professional approach and customer focus has ensured repeat bookings from many well known companies and organisations, including the Armed forces, Golf Courses, Masonic lodges, Oxford Colleges, Hotels and Clubs.
