More information about The Starlights

We pride ourselves on not only providing a high professional standard of music but also a great live show for you and your guests. We bring energy, fun and class to any event!

We have worked with a variety of artists including ACM Gospel Choir, Beverly Knight, Michael Ball, Gabriella Cilmi, Russell Watson, Olly Murs, Pixie Lott and Nate James.

We have performed at an array of venues/festivals including The O2 Arena, Wembley Stadium, Shepherds Bush Empire, Beach Break, Secret Garden Party, and DFDS Cruise Liners.

The standard line up is a 4 / 5 piece band but we know that not every event is the same. We can also supply a simple acoustic duo or trio.

FAQs

How much do you charge?

It is really difficult to give an indication of our charges without knowing a bit more about your event. Various things can affect the cost of hiring a band including the size and location of the venue, the length of time you want us to play and the equipment we will need to bring. So please, contact us now and we will be happy to give you a quotation.

What areas do you cover?

We are happy to play almost anywhere in the world! The band is based in London and the South East so our most competitive rates will be for bookings in this region. For venues with further travelling time from London, we will charge an extra fee.

Where can I see you play?

We are so busy with private engagements that we rarely have the opportunity to play at public events. You may watch a video of our live performances on this website to give you a better idea of how we appear when playing live and listen to our demos or contact us if you want to come to a rehearsal which can be arranged.

Will the band need a PA or special lighting or any requirements?

The band will supply their own PA suitable for events up to 500 people. We also supply lighting. All we need is a few plug sockets available and a room to get changed leave our belongings in.

Do you take song requests?

Yes please feel free to make requests and we will accommodate music to suit your event. All we ask is that you give us enough notice for rehearsal purposes. We can only take up to 4 per event.

We highly recommend you trusting us and leaving the final play list to us, This is because there are many factors involved in determining the order and composition of the play list, such as key signatures, tempos, audience reaction and participation etc.

What venues will you play?

The band will perform at a wide variety of venues from pubs & village halls to large country estates, theatres, halls, hotel function rooms. The band will also perform in marquees or outdoors, under cover, if the weather allows it.

How much space do you need?

Depending on how many of us you wish to have all we ask is we need a suitable space to fit the equipment and have enough room to perform!

How long do you need to set up?

Usually, we need about an hour and a half to set up the PA and sound check in advance of the performance. We prefer this to carrying out the sound-check before the arrival of guests where possible.

Will I also need to hire a DJ?

We are happy to play a selection of continuous music that is mixed together before and between our performances. Most clients do not find that they need a DJ in addition to the band. However, we are happy to work with a DJ if you do have one or help you to book one.

Will the band I book be the exact same people as in the pictures/videos?

Usually, but not always. We engage the best musicians and singers possible. All of our team are professionals and as such will be engaged sometimes to work on tours and sessions with name acts.

We have a core team as seen on this site and then a pool of players. We will absolutely ensure the performance is utterly fantastic as all line ups are equally incredible.

"Right from our first queries to The Starlights. Laura was prompt to respond and really helpful in answering our questions. The Starlights offered to learn a new song for our first dance and asked our opinions on other songs, even personalising the set order etc for us, playing pre-recorded songs between live sets. On the night they were fantastic, great vocals and music, got the party started and people on the dance floor. Our wedding guests couldn’t praise the band any more. All our guests commented on how good the band were and have asked for their details for future reference. Thank you!!"

"Hi Laura, Just a quick note on behalf of Saracens to thank you and the rest of the band for a great performance yesterday. Lots of positive comments last night and today. We'll certainly be recommending you to others! The final stragglers finally left the clubhouse as the sun came up and I think that if you had carried on playing they would have kept dancing! A great night! Hopefully we'll get you along again"

"The Starlights were fantastic right from booking to our wedding. They were so helpful with the planning which made it a lot easier for us. Our guests all commented on how good they were and how much energy they added to our evening reception. The band were very flexible on the day as our wedding breakfast ran over so they had to tweak their set timings but they changed it without fuss and the evening ran smoothly. I would definitely book them again. Thank you."
