Full Description
The CHRIS BARTON Band is a top UK party/wedding band based in the South-East. We have played for Jarvis Cocker’s 40th birthday party, Rick Stein’s 70th birthday party, and many other private functions, weddings, parties and company events. All the band members are top professionals with a track record in the music industry. You can book us for your wedding reception, large or small. We have a long list of very happy clients. The band comprises Keyboards & Vocals, Guitar & Vocals, Saxophone, Drums. At weddings and parties we usually play at the evening reception for dancing. We play two and a half hours of live music (around 3 x 50 minute sets), and put on recorded dance music during our breaks. We provide all necessary lighting and amplification. Our band has a unique blend of excitement and professionalism. We have played for dancing at all kinds of private parties & wedding receptions all over the UK and also abroad. We really do know how to give our audience a fantastic time. Please see our website for more details and to see our extensive repertoire. We are based in the Hampshire & London area and will travel.
