The Perfect Choice

The Strolling Pack’s versatility has made them an extremely popular choice and this roaming band now performs at a vast array of events including weddings, corporate events, private soirees and beyond.

Aside from their talent and showmanship, a huge selling point is their ability to perform whilst moving around your venue and interacting with your guests through tailor made mini-sets for each group they approach adding a personal touch to each performance.

More enthusiastic guests may even find themselves playing some extra instruments with the band during one or two numbers.

Our standard performance is 2 x 45 minutes with a small break between sets. Other options are available, such as 2 x 60 minutes, or 3 x 40 minutes.

The Personal Touch

With up to five instruments playing together and a flexible dress code, it’s very easy for the band to play a more relaxed set or a more lively one throughout their walk-around sets, 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.

The Strolling Pack pride themselves on customer satisfaction to make sure that your special day runs as smoothly as possible no matter what the occasion.

From their first contact with you leading up to the date of the booking, they will check the all-important details to start locking down everything they need to know to make the live music a complete success at your event.

If you want the full sound of a complete band, but with a more acoustic delivery, or if you want to show your guests a performance with a twist, then The Strolling Pack are the band for you.

Whether you’re booking music for a wedding, party, corporate event or otherwise, The Strolling Pack are the perfect choice delivering upbeat feel-good music for guests of all ages.

So if you're looking for a Mumford & Sons style wedding band in London or throughout the UK, get in touch with The Strolling Pack band.

Amplified Option

If you’re looking for an acoustic band to perform with a live sound system instead of the walk-around option, The Strolling Pack have it covered for you as they also regularly perform as an amplified band with a top end professional sound system plus lighting rig at the ready.

This option is perfect for events where you have a dance floor, or where you’d like the music to feature more prominently at your event.

The Party Set

After The Strolling Pack have performed as a walk-around acoustic band, they can also perform a great party set as an electric band with full drum kit & electric guitars.

As the band members will already be present for the acoustic performance, we can add this package on to your event at a discounted price.

Acoustic Duo, Trio or Quartet

If you were thinking of also hiring an acoustic duo or trio at your event to get things started, we have more good news. The band members often perform as duos or trios so this is very comfortable territory for them.

Adding on a performance from an acoustic duo (consisting of the two acoustic guitarists/vocalists from the band) or trio (plus either percussion or double bass) is very easy to do. This option is perfect at the start of your event, over afternoon drinks or during a dinner as a small musical taster for your guests to enjoy.

"For those of you who don’t like long reviews; these guys are fantastic, talented and really made our wedding. Stop your search and book them. For a slightly longer review read on, from the moment of booking the band stayed in contact and always made communication when they stated they would, this included running through running order/arrival time, sorting out the playlist and if we had any special requests for the day. Tom arrived before the rest of the band with all his equipment at the time we had agreed, he then proceeded to transport their equipment to the venue and start setting up. First of all, Tom is an extremely friendly and likeable person. He offered to help out with anything as we were running behind he performed a few errands for us and generally helped us out for which we are very grateful. On to the music, as a band they are a very talented bunch, we left the set list up to them and my goodness did they deliver a fantastic blend of current and past music which had all age groups dancing, singing or at the very least tapping their foot along! I’m no Simon Cowell but they sounded fantastic with an excellent range throughout varying songs and genres. This coupled with the fact they were able to interact and react to the various unplanned situations during their set (first dance etc) made them an excellent choice for the wedding. An added twist, was that our wedding was a surprise wedding, with our guests turning up and expecting an engagement party, the band were extremely discreet and the surprise went down a storm. We spent hours and hours searching for a band for our wedding, save yourself the hassle and book The Strolling Pack. A fantastic night had by all. THANK YOU GUYS!"
