The Travelling Hands – Party & Function Band | UK
The Travelling Hands are one of the UK’s leading roaming bands and offer a unique performance, moving to different groups of guests playing intimate customised sets in a feel good walk-around performance. The Travelling Hands are an entertaining, highly skilled and versatile acoustic roaming band, available to hire for corporate parties, balls, product launch parties, film premieres, anniversaries and weddings. These corporate entertainers will leave your guests amazed with their mix of classic songs and modern hits.
Combining two guitars, percussion, saxophone, double bass and a whole lot of harmonies, The Travelling Hands offer a fresh delivery of live music through their arrangements of classic songs and modern hits in a warm feel good ‘Mumford & Sons’ meets ‘The Lumineers’ style of performance.
Together, these musicians’ five instruments create the perfect bed for harmonised vocals. If you want the full sound of a complete band, but with a more acoustic delivery or you’re looking for a performance with a twist, then The Travelling Hands are the band for you.
Having performed as residency band at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, plus a brilliant selection of venues including The Ritz, Isola Del Garda (Lake Garda), Lincoln’s Inn, Hilton Doubletree, plus clients including Epson, Kuoni, WH Smith & many more, this is one acoustic band in demand.
Adaptability for all events:
With five instruments playing together, it’s very easy for the band to play a more relaxed set or a more lively one, 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 and sound the part for your event.
The extra options:
The PA Option
If you’re looking for an acoustic band to perform with a live sound system instead of the walk-around option, The Travelling Hands 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. 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 Travelling Hands 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 heading to your event for the acoustic performance, we can add this package onto 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 and they always deliver another top-class performance.
As the musicians will be heading to your venue for the full band performance, 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. Perfect at the start of your event, over afternoon drinks or during a dinner as a small musical taster for your guests to enjoy.
Alternatively for smaller events, the full band can downsize to an acoustic quartet or trio.
