Biography

Having studied at the acclaimed British Academy of New Music, Sound City have spent the last six years touring across the UK supporting the likes of Noel Gallagher, Pierce Brothers and Alt-J to name a few.

Whilst earning their stripes performing and promoting their own material, the band also gained huge popularity on the private events scene, regularly performing at parties, weddings and corporate events. They've since become one of the most popular wedding bands to work with us here at Bands For Hire.

With six years playing together, Sound City create a super-tight live sound, which along with their easy going on stage rapport, is the perfect recipe for a party atmosphere!

    Sound City were amazing. They exceeded all our expectations and made our evening. Our dance floor was not empty and filled with both young and old as the music appealed to all. The band were so personable, grateful for our hospitality and all round lovely people. Our guests haven’t stopped raving about them. We were also so pleased for the music they played in between sets: it was nice not to end with the usual cliche tunes but instead with American Pie which had everyone singing to. Could not fault them and we are so delighted we hired them. One of our guests wants to hire them for their birthday they were that impressed! Thank you Sound City!

    Ross Tompkins - Wedding
    The whole process of booking Sound City was really easy and smooth. And the band were fantastic on the night - all our friends loved them and they made the evening really feel like a party. They were really friendly and fun to have around before and during the party - and the music was perfect. They did the sound check carefully so the sound was spot-on too. A massive thanks - we'd highly recommend Sound City and Bands for Hire!!!

    Justine Anstey - Christmas Party
    The Sound City guys were brilliant! Our schedule was much more ‘flexible’ than I’d anticipated but the guys went with it, shortened their mid set break and were totally flexible all night. I can’t recommend them enough, they sounded great, were really good fun and they were easy on the eye too!!!

    Mandy McEvoy - Christmas Party
    I just want to say a huge thank you to Sound City! Not only did they perform amazingly well, they were professional and interactive with our guests. We have had so many comments on the “awesome” band. They even played an extra song at the end of the set because the crowd was really enjoying themselves. Thank you to the team at bands for hire for great communication and the band for making our wedding truly unforgettable. Everyone had a great time and it wouldn’t have been the same without Sound City. Thank you again! I would recommend to anyone and will definitely use for future events.

    Sound City were fantastic, right from communication before our wedding to the day itself. Always quick to reply and very accommodating with our requests (including requests for the playlists between sets). The guys were ready and set up to go well ahead of time. They were professional throughout, our guests loved them and they made our evening. Would definitely recommend to friends, family and would love to have them play at an event in the future.

    James Smith - Wedding
    Sound City made our wedding evening incredible! Thank you so so so much! You all were amazing from the start. I can only apologise for the last minute changes that happened from the Marquee to the Barn (unfortunately it of our control) but you guys handled it like the pro's you are. And you did it so quickly! Seriously impressive! We had so many of our guests say how great you were and you made the night.

    Jonathan Mantripp - Wedding
    It was my 30th party and Sound City absolutely made the night. Firstly, the band was really helpful and accommodating during the planning process. They supplied a list of suggested songs that we stuck with, and they all turned out to be perfect! We turned up and they had set everything up and were waiting for us. I had a long chat with all 3 of them, and they are all fantastic guys. Really lovely lads. Anyway, nobody could get off the dance floor for the duration of the night. They really went above and beyond to make it an amazing night! Next time I need a band for anything, there’s no question who I’ll be approaching

    Max - Party
    Sound City were absolutely fabulous, they kept everyone dancing all night with their live performances as well as their selections of songs for their breaks. They were quick with responding to any emails we sent and came and introduced themselves during their breaks which we really appreciated. Hearing them play our first dance song (which they nailed) was a particularly special moment, thanks so much Sound City!

Every single person enjoyed them and said they were the best wedding band they had ever seen! From the first song everyone was dancing and no one stopped all night! A few friends took their name/ card for their wedding. It was such a pleasure to have them at our wedding! Thank you so much sound city we wish we could do it all again!

    Charley Deacon - Wedding
    We hired Sound City after really enjoying their music video that we saw online. Their reviews and testimonials were excellent. Our only concern was that we hadn’t seen them live as they do private events only. However they did an amazing job with our first dance song that they learnt for us, they remained professional throughout and we loved their music. We got lots of compliments from guests and the dance floor was never empty throughout their performance. Thank you Sound City
    ★★★★★
    Dale Hardy - Wedding
    Such a brilliant band, we hired Sound City for our wedding after seeing their video online and they did not disappoint. We had so many compliments on their performance, the dance floor was never empty. Once they arrived they introduced themselves straight away and set up on time, our guests even enjoyed the sound check! We also hired Sound City for the DJ service, this was also brilliant, I gave them a long list of song requests and they played what they could. Would highly recommend them for any event.

    We cannot thank the guys enough for their amazing work at our wedding. Their set lists were spot on and their organization was perfect. All of our guests raved about the quality of the band and they had everyone up and dancing to the very end. Communication was really easy in the lead up to the wedding and on the day, all of the guys were smiley, friendly and we were made to feel like they had everything under control, which was really reassuring. We can't recommend these guys highly enough as a wedding band! Thank you so much for making our day the best party ever!
    ★★★★★
    Jenny Horsman - Wedding
    We were a little nervous initially booking the band as we'd only seen one video of them performing so we didn't really have a guarantee that they would be as good as we'd hoped. I can honestly say it was one of our best decisions! The band were polite and flexible, extremely talented and more than we could have hoped for. We are so pleased with their performance for our wedding, so many of our guests have commented on how good they were and I would highly recommend them to anyone. The dancefloor was full from the second they started and it stayed that way all night. We are really grateful to the band, thank you so much for helping to make our wedding so special.

    Alex Fraser - Wedding
    We planned our wedding from overseas and took a chance hiring an unfamiliar band. My husband and I could not be happier with their performance. Their song selection was fun and up-beat, the execution was very good, and the vocalist added fun and charisma to their performance. The band was very flexible in the start and end time as we were slightly off schedule throughout the night. Thanks again!

    ★★★★★
    Nathan Fley - Wedding
    We had numerous compliments on the band from the guests, saying how good the band was, even one of our 91 year old guests was dancing, which kind of says it all! The band were professional, happy to be there, played and sang well, they were friendly and continued to play with enthusiasm even if the dance floor was quiet. Unfortunately, it was a really really hot day, it was often cooler outside than in, so at times the dance floor was quiet. Despite this there was no pressure, they continued to play well, and it was heard and enjoyed equally well in the venue gardens. I was happy to buy them all a drink at the end of the night as a thank you for their work. They took a picture with our photo mirror, we are proud to add it our scrap book. Thank you!
    ★★★★★
    William Gravatt - Wedding
    Fantastic energetic band with a great sound that all our guests absolutely loved - I could hear the cheering from the other side of the river! I have had so many people say to me that they thought the band were great. They were friendly, cooperative and professional and fulfilled all the duties we were expecting of them. They were the highlight of our wedding reception and I couldn’t be happier with my choice.

    Sound City played at our wedding in September and we would fully recommend them. We asked them to learn a new song for our first dance and it was perfectly performed, maybe even better than the original! We have had numerous comments from our guests about how well they performed and how they put their own style on some classic songs. Thanks very much for making out wedding so special.

    The guys were pretty damn amazing and worked so well with my family and under the pressure of getting the music going with the sensitive sound limiter in the room. Everyone loved the music and the evening went so fast, if we got to choose again, we would always choose you trio!
