Indie Rock / Pop Wedding Band Hire London - Affinity
Affinity is a group of extremely talented musicians bringing the best pop, funk and soul party music to stages and dance floors up and down the UK. The band is fronted by Claire, our fantastic vocalist who has tones that are reminiscent of the current soul powerhouses like Adele and Sia, yep that’s right, we just compared her to Adele and Sia! Claire’s vocal expertise and incredibly sweet personality will win you and all of your guests round from the first song. Affinity comes as a 4-piece band, their lineupis lead vocals, guitar, bass, and drums / backing vocals. The band can also add more band members should you be looking for some brass or keys.
Claire, who frequently flexes her vocal chords with an in-demand choir regularly booked by the stars, has recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and has featured on multiple Swedish house DJ records, is supported by Chris (on guitar), Ewan (on bass), and Josh (on drums and backing vocals). Collectively they have all studied at one of the most prestigious musical educational facilities in the UK, the British Institute of Modern Music; have played with the likes of Emeli Sande, Ellie Goulding, Little Mix, Edge Michael (Peter Tosh’s nephew), Gary ‘Mudbone’ Cooper (of Parliament Funkadelic), Nate James, and Mollie King (of The Saturdays); have supported Robbie Williams, Rudimental, and Ronan Keating; have performed at Isle of White Festival, Newquay Beach Break Festival, The Full Ponty, GuilFest, Evolution Festival, SXSW Festival, and Notting Hill Carnival; toured the UK, Europe, and USA; have played at the renowned 100 Club, O2 Arena, O2 Islington, and Versuz (one of Europe’s largest nightclubs); and have played on Capital FM. I think you’ll agree that they've more than earned their stripes.
Claire leads the way in Affinity as she belts out the band's pop, funk and soul repertoire, from artists such as Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, and Bruno Mars. The band has a repertoire of over 600 songs covering the 1950s to the current top 40, and specializes in pop funk and soul, though their repertoire also covers Motown, rock, jazz, disco, gospel, swing, blues, Jewish as well as Christmas and Halloween genres. Affinity offer a complete service, including a PA and lighting system to light up your stage and dance floor; complimentary music before, in-between and after sets; an ‘off the menu’ song request (often the first dance); and a bespoke set list from over 600 songs for your special event, which means you’re guaranteed that the band will play exactly what you want to hear.
We had a really perfect experience with Affinity at our Wedding Celebration in Putney. Before the event the communication and planning with Rhona was clear and on point; selecting a set list was easy given the wide variety of styles available and Rhona was a able to direct us towards certain songs that the band played especially well. At the event, the band played wonderfully, bringing a great energy and enthusiasm to the evening. Getting the bride and her dad on stage to sing was a wonderful touch, as was their willingness to play an encore and hang around chatting at the end of the night. All members of the band were very talented musicians and they all worked together like seasoned professionals. Both singers deserve special mention for their soulful vocals and ability to work the crowd and engage with the audience. We would highly recommend the band and would book again without hesitation.

Affinity performed at our work Christmas party to a hard crowd but were an absolute hit! Had us all up dancing. Great set list. Great musicians. Amazing singers such great choices and they had lots of smiles for us and had us singing along. Shelley, London, Christmas Staff Party, December 2016
Thank you to you and the band… they were fantastic and the duo. Nothing but compliments all around. You were wonderful to deal with…. Thank you for all your help and patience! Everyone was dancing and the duo was terrific. Music was just fantastic… would definitely use you again. Alex, London, Birthday Party, September 2016
Just want to say a massive thank you to everyone last night! As we knew it would be, it was amazing! Great song choices and really kept the party going till we sadly had to stop! Natasha, Croydon, Corporate Awards, October 2016
Just wanted to send a quick thank you to you and Affinity for playing at our wedding. I'm not sure if they reported back, but the weather was TERRIBLE and everything was rather delayed so I think they were waiting around for quite a while, so I'm sorry for that. However, despite the weather, we had an amazing day and the band were absolutely brilliant! They were exactly what we wanted and had people up and dancing from the first note!! Thanks for your help in the run up and your advice on the set list. I'll try and recommend the band to friends getting married so I get to hear them again ;) Bex & Dan, Exeter, Wedding, August 2016
Just wanted to let you know that the band were all amazing on the night - we had such a great time and all our guests commented on how impressive the band were - the dance floor was busy all evening. Please would you pass on my thanks as I didn't get a chance to thank them all individually before they left and I really want them to know that they made it all perfect, especially giving up the keyboard for the first song as well! Thanks for all your help in organising everything, it was exactly what we wanted. Sally & Phil, London, Wedding, October 2016
We booked Affinity for our beautiful wedding all the way in Devon. For the finer points of the booking we dealt with Rhona who was a pleasure to deal with and always available to answer any queries. The band themselves were beyond our expectations, they really made our evening party special and both singers were amazing! We had so many compliments from the guests and all the other suppliers wanted to know where they had come from. The band really interacted with the guests and got myself (the bride) and many of the children to sing too, which everyone loved! We are both so grateful for what a special touch they added to our day. Angela & Franc, Devon, Wedding, July 2016
What a performance! We are so pleased that we chose your services for our wedding reception. Affinity are by far the best live party band we have seen. They were amazing! From learning our first dance song and singing it beautifully, to performing Mr Brightside twice (it’s one of my favourites), and then allowing Molly to perform ‘Valerie’ with the band, the evening was perfect. We would like to sincerely thank you for all the effort you and the band put into making the wedding reception a memorable event. Your friendliness, professionalism and assistance in working around our busy schedule so that the band sound checked early surpassed our expectation and we will definitely recommend you. Tim & Maria, Hampshire, Wedding, July 2016
We booked Affinity for a special event we were hosting at a cinema- they were superb. Despite giving them a lot of information at the last minute, they were flexible and forthcoming and really had our audience dancing and cheering. I'd highly recommend them to anyone! Nia, London, Everyman Cinema, May 2016
We were beyond thrilled with Affinity, they were fantastic and really exceeded our expectations. We had lots of great feedback from all of the guests and our other suppliers were all asking where they were from! They really made our special day even better, thanks so much for all your and the bands efforts, especially coming all the way to Devon! Angela & Francesco, Devon, Wedding, July 2016
