More information about The Lions

Assembled from a collection of staggeringly talented young Sussex musicians, The Lions can offer themselves up as a stripped back four-piece band for that tight, classic indie-rock sound.

With their optional keyboard player included, the band reaches all new levels of unparalleled sonic quality as a soaring five-piece outfit.

From Mumford & Sons to Blur, Lynyrd Skynyrd to The Libertines, these boys serve it up with a ground-shaking live delivery that is guaranteed to beguile all your guests, whether they're young or young at heart.

The Lions' standard entertainment package includes:

  • Professional 5-piece covers band with male lead vocals
  • 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets
  • Brilliant repertoire featuring the biggest folk rock, indie rock and pop hits from 60s to current chart
  • Professional PA and lighting
  • Pre-mixed disco before and after live sets (tailored to your tastes)
  • PAT tested equipment and Public Liability Insurance
  • Special request performed

The Lions also offer a stylish live lounge style acoustic set, which is a very popular add-on for wedding bookings as it is perfect for the drinks reception or during dinner.

They are based in West Sussex and available for hire at weddings and corporate functions across the UK and Europe.


The Lions will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music.

The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening.

If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up – they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!

It takes a minimum of 60 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:45 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least two weeks notice of the song choice.


How long do you take to set-up?

60-90 minutes.

What time do you play?

Any time to suit you, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, anytime between 7pm and midnight.

How long do you play for?

We can perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40-minute live sets in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

We can also perform 1 x 60-minute acoustic live lounge style set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?

Yes – all included in the price.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?


Will you perform our first dance?

Yes, as long as we have two weeks notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?

We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

2 x 13 amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. But this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.

"We absolutely loved The Lions, they were so much better than we thought possible! The crowd loved them and they played some proper bangers! The dance floor was packed all evening and everyone had sore throats and aching limbs the next day from dancing and singing all evening! Highly recommend this band, they have some EXCELLENT covers/versions of brilliant songs so just let them know what you want! They were no bother either, I put them in touch with our marquee company and they arranged everything through them, didn't bother us once and our marquee company told us how great they were to work with. Thank you so much to the band and FixTheMusic for making our event unforgettable."

“You guys were absolutely incredible! Went well above and beyond, a brilliant bunch of guys and complete professionals. You learnt our first dance song (which is, without doubt, the single best version of that song I've ever heard) you travelled ridiculously far, with a van that broke down on you, didn't moan/complain/fuss once, even when I checked late in the day and nobody had fed you guys! You worked all damn day. Did a beautiful acoustic set during the day and still rocked the eff out of our evening til the early hours! I need another reason to book again...”

“The Lions were absolutely incredible, we were truly blown away with their fantastic talent and they surpassed our expectations. Our guests loved them and everyone got up on the dance floor and boogied the night away – our nephews, in particular, were right up the front loving every minute. From our first dance to the last song, they were just amazing and all such lovely lads – so thank you guys for making our wedding day so special and one we shall never forget.”

“The band was a really important part of our wedding night. It felt a bit of a risk choosing a band we could only hear on the net but the gamble completely paid off. The Lions were AMAZING! The 3 sets they played had guests old, young and even the skeptical on their feet stomping the floor. It made our night. Thank you so much The Lions! Onwards and Upwards to you.”
