Acoutica Band

Line-up options:

4 piece (standard) - Female lead vocals, acoustic guitar, double bass and percussion
5 piece - Plus saxophone

Acoustica are a professional acoustic band consisting of vocals, acoustic guitar, double bass and percussion. They perform a mix of songs from golden oldies like Stevie Wonder’s Superstition to modern day chart toppers including Daft Punk’s Get Lucky and The Lumineers’ Hey Ho. When Acoustica was formed, the aim was simple - to cater for all audiences through carefully constructed feel good set-lists that cover musical tastes for all ages.

Acoustica’s musicians have performed in numerous bands on stages worldwide, plus TV appearances, tours, and session work for major music label artists. After countless gigs with different bands, the musicians decided to collate their musical skills and experience, and form one solid line-up to deliver powerful sets at every performance.

VERSATILITY FOR ALL EVENTS
Whether you’re planning a wedding, private party or corporate meeting, Acoustica can provide the perfect soundtrack to your event, bring people to the dance-floor and create a warm feel good vibe for your guests.

Acoustica performs at all sorts of events and can play and dress accordingly. With four instruments playing together, it’s very easy for the quartet to play a more relaxed set or a more lively 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.

ACOUSTIC DUO SET AVAILABLE
Thinking of also hiring an acoustic duo at your event to get things started? Our band members all began their gigging careers as duos so this is very comfortable territory for them and they always deliver another top-class performance.

As Acoustica’s professional audio equipment will be heading to your venue for the full band, we can add on our acoustic duo consisting of guitar and vocals to the schedule as a nice affordable bolt-on price. Perfect at the start of your event, over afternoon drinks, during a dinner or even within a wedding ceremony.

Here is a brief list of some of the places, venues and people that the members of the band have performed and toured in and with:

  • Wimbledon Tennis Championships

A DAY THAT WORKS FOR YOU
Acoustica are flexible in their setup and timings and the show can be formatted in the following ways depending on your preference: 2 x 60 minute sets 3 x 40 minute sets

If you’re after something a little different with set times - just let us know when you make your booking and we’ll talk through the options with you.

SONG CHOICE 
From their wealth of experience, Acoustica knows what songs work best live and which numbers will bring your guests to the dancefloor. What’s more, by carefully constructing setlists with songs from different decades, we make sure that guests of all ages can enjoy the performance.

Acoustica can draw on their experience to know which songs work best live for different events. Once your booking is confirmed we’ll ask if our plan for your event suits (eg for a wedding - they play feel good fun tracks for all ages to help brides and grooms celebrate their big days with big parties!). They know the tracks that will go down a storm. If you have a couple of favourites or so, then you can let us know what they are too. At the event itself, Acoustica will use their experience to create an organic setlist so that if your guests are particularly enjoying a rock n roll number from the 50s for example, and it’s got the dancefloor heaving - they might play another one straight off to keep your guests on their feet. Acoustica’s 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
Acoustica only performs with top of the line audio equipment & instruments. They perform with a leading 2000 watt active PA system. Brands of instruments and amplification used by Acoustica are nothing but top level too and include Gibson, Fender, Faith, Tanglewood, Boss, Tama & TC-Electronics (and that’s just for starters). The band are also equipped with superb LED lighting that provides both the stage and dance floor with a brilliant array of colours for you and your guests to enjoy.

GET THE PERFECT BAND TREATMENT ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY!
Acoustica’s musicians pride themselves on customer satisfaction to make sure that your special day runs as smoothly as possible no matter what the event. From their first phone-call with you leading up to your event, the band leader for your event will check the all-important details to start locking down everything they need to know to make the live music at your event a complete success.
