"Great band. Really made our party. Definitely recommend them.​" (Birthday/Retirement Party), 2017Paula Cadier

"I cannot recommend BackBeat enough! They turned up on time as scheduled and played an awesome rendition of 'Stand by Me' (our first dance as a married couple) everyone sang along and it was one of my favorite moments of the day! They played a fantastic variety of songs which got literally all of our wedding guests dancing (ranging from ages 4 to 70+!) We had an amazing time and danced all night :-) Thank you BackBeat, I will be recommending you to all of my friends!​" Rachael & James (Wedding), 2017Rachael & James

"Fantastic music from start to finish, extremely professional and easy to deal with. We had a lovely party, enjoyed by all with the right mix of music for all ages. Thank you to the band, and I would have no hesitation in recommending you. Hope to see you again." (60/30 party)​, 2017Karen Frame

"They were absolutely fantastic and got everybody dancing! They managed to cater to a huge variety of ages and music tastes. We couldn't recommend them more highly!" (Cancer Research UK charity summer party), 2017Clare Proctor

“BackBeat, I just like to take this opportunity to thank you guys for a brilliant gig. I can highly recommend this band perfect throughout, well worth the money spent.” (Army Mess Leaving Event), 2017Martin Cartwright

"BackBeat were absolutely fantastic. They really kept the party going with a seemingly endless stream of music that got everyone dancing. Loads of our guests (from 8 - 80) commented on how brilliant they were. I would definitely recommend them." (60th birthday party), 2016Marion

"The whole band where excellent and the music and lighting and vocals all amazing. Many party goers commentated at how good the set of music was and the quality. Made the occasion very memorable and you just cannot beat a quality live band. Thanks again." (50th party), 2016Syd

"Thank you so much BackBeat our 40th birthday party, last night, was made extra amazing by you! Easy to book, friendly, great selection of music, fantastic performance- everything we’d wished for. I wouldn’t hesitate to book them again." (40th birthday party), 2016Emily and Iain Webster

"It can be a bit nerve wracking to choose a wedding band from a website but we definitely made the right choice with BackBeat! From the start, Wayne was honest and communicative. We met with him and Jared a few weeks before the wedding Which was a really useful time for all to get to know each other and talk songs - we feel this helped the band to add some personal touches to our day. Outbeat have a fantastic selection of songs - good variety covering a range of decades to appeal to all ages. We have had nothing but compliments from our guests about the band and would thoroughly recommend them for any function... In fact, we can't wait to have a party and use them again! Thank you BackBeat for enhancing our wedding day ... And adding to our wonderful memories!" (Wedding), 2016David and Corinna

"Great communication from Wayne from start to finish. He came to check the venue out before hand and finalise the event details. The band had the crowed on their feet the whole night long!. A fantastic bunch of musicians and a fab singer! We will defiantly be using BackBeat for our other functions! Thanks guys... and girl!" (Fundraiser), 2016Tracy

"Highly recommended. Wayne was my original point of contact and the booking process was simple. Wayne visited the site to get the lay of the land prior to the big day so there were no last minute blockers. The band were great, everybody at the party agreed including some very proficient musicians in their own right. Excellent range of music very well played & sung. So would I book BackBeat again? Already have! Enough said." (Private Birthday Party), 2016Matt Braydon

"I can't express how pleased we were with the band BackBeat who played for our Silver Wedding Anniversary on 25th June. They were very well organised with getting set up before the event and their selection of music was brilliant. Their sound is fabulous and I would not hesitate to recommend them. I would definitely use them again for any further events we may have in the future. Thank you BackBeat for helping to make our evening extra special." (Silver Wedding), 2016Teresa Bannock

"BackBeat were fantastic, they helped out at a charity event which raised over £4,000. They were incredibly professional coming along in the afternoon to sound check and then waiting around for their set as the speeches ran over. They played a blinding set and despite the small crowd left got everyone up dancing and singing along. I would definitely book them again for another event and would recommend to anyone who are looking for a lively and soulful covers band." (Rennie Grove Hospice Care - Mayor of High Wycombe's Gala Dinner), 2016Claire Redrup


How much do you charge?

When quoting for your event, we take into consideration the distance we have to travel to the venue and how long you would like us to perform for. If you click 'make an enquiry' and let us know exactly what you're looking for, we would be more than happy to provide you with an individual quotation.

How far will you travel?

BackBeat will travel anywhere in the UK to perform. We are based in London/Hertfordshire but have performed all over the UK.

How long do you play for?

This is entirely down to you. A typical performance could consist of 2 x 60 mins or 3 x 40 mins sets, but we can be very flexible to accommodate your schedule.

Can you supply music before/in-between your sets?

Yes, a MacBook is provided during the breaks packed with over 1000 songs, or if you prefer, simply give us your iPod/iPhone if you already have a playlist you wish to use.

How long does it take you to setup?

It will take us about 90 minutes to set up our equipment and sound check. In order to achieve this, we need to be able to park as near to the venue as possible.

Can we use your PA system for speeches? 

Yes, as long as it is after our sound check then the PA can be used for speeches.

What do we require from you?

We need to be able to perform in an area at least 3 metres x 3 metres. There will need to be at least 2 x 13 amp sockets near to where we will be performing. However we do carry 2 x 30 metre extension reels with us for when performing outside, such as in a Marquee. There will need to be somewhere for us to store our music cases and personal belongings. Light refreshments will also be required for up to five people.

Do you have public liability insurance and is your equipment PAT tested?  

Yes, we have full public liability cover and all of our electrical equipment is PAT tested.

Will you learn a specific song to play at my event (e.g. First Dance)?  

Yes, we are happy to learn one song for your event, free of charge, but don't forget to check our song list on the repertoire page to see if we already know it.

How much time does it take between finishing playing and being ready to leave?  

We need 60 minutes to break down the equipment, pack it away and load up the transport.
