Journeymen are an acoustic band with a difference. Combining two guitars, percussion, double bass and saxophone, they offer a fresh delivery of live music through their arrangements of classic songs and modern hits with a warm feel good ‘Mumford & Sons’ style throughout each performance.
Journeymen musicians have performed in countless function bands on stages worldwide, plus TV appearances, tours, and session work for major music label artists. After countless gigs within different bands, the lads decided to collate their musical skills and experience, and form one solid line-up to deliver powerful sets at every performance.
From their wealth of experience, Journeymen know what songs work best live and which numbers will bring your guests to the dancefloor or get them singing if they are performing their roaming sets. What’s more, by carefully constructing set lists with numbers from different decades, they make sure that guests of all ages enjoy the performance.
THE WALKAROUND/ROAMING OPTION
They love this style of performance. The band will walk to different tables or groups of guests and play numerous mini sets for your different guests to enjoy. They can tailor the songs they play for each specific group they perform to, and make sure everybody gets a personal performance of songs they will love to sing along to. This is the perfect choice if you want to show your guests a performance with a twist and it works well for any feel good event be it a wedding, party, corporate event or otherwise both indoors and outdoors. Also available with saxophone in this option.
ADAPTABILITY FOR ALL EVENTS
Whether you’re planning a wedding, private party or corporate meeting, Journeymen can provide the perfect soundtrack to your event, bring people to the dancefloor and create a warm feel good vibe for your guests.
Journeymen perform at all sorts of events and can play and dress accordingly. With up to five instruments playing together, its very easy for the band to play a more relaxed set or a livelier one, so no matter whether you’re hosting a black-tie dinner or an informal birthday party, you can be confident that the band will look sound and look the part for your event.
Journeymen draw on their experience to know which songs work best live for different events. Once your booking is confirmed we’ll ask you if our plan suits (e.g. for a wedding - they play feel good fun tracks for all ages to help brides and grooms celebrate their big days with a big party!). They know the tracks that will go down a storm. At the event itself, Journeymen use their experience to create a slightly organic set list so that if your guests are particularly enjoying a rock n roll number from the 50s for example, and the dancefloor is heaving - we will often play another one straight off to keep your guests on their feet. Journeymen musicians’ high level of skill and musicianship allows them to adapt setlists this way and this is one of many factors that has helped them build a solid reputation as a hard working band.
PROFESSIONAL SOUND AND VISUAL IMAGE
Journeymen only perform with top of the line audio equipment and instruments. Brands of instruments and audio equipment used include Gibson, Fender, Faith, Tanglewood, Boss, Tama, and Zildjian (that’s just for starters).

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe. He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with. He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day. He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with. All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
The event was a huge success and we have had some great feedback. It was certainly one of the most popular areas of the night!
It was a great night and we have had fantastic feedback on all the acts that you provided.
The acts went down really, people seem to enjoy them and each one appealed to a different group so a nice mix for all staff.
