The Fiction

The Fiction are a fun and entertaining function band performing popular songs from the past five decades.

From £1295


This talented and enthusiastic 4-piece function band offer a varied repertoire of fun and upbeat songs from the 50s and 60s right through to modern chart hits. From Ed Sheeran to James Brown, from the Beatles to Oasis, there's something to keep guests of all ages entertained.

The Fiction is made up of four experienced musicians each with years of weddings, parties and corporate events in their back catalogue, if it's a lively band that oozes friendly showmanship you're looking for then this is the band for you.

    We, and I think everyone who attended the event, thought the boys did an amazing job! The guys were prompt and very professional and set up with ease. Their sets were great, with a really well mixed repertoire and well put together, not to mention sung so well!!! Like pros! Everyone at our event commented on how great the band were and they really made the night for all of us. They were flexible and agreed to play a little longer also on the night which was great! We would have absolutely no qualms about booking them again for both a corporate event or to recommend them for personal do's. Thanks again, it was a real pleasure doing business with you all.
    Anna Aleksandrowicz - The Royal College of Anaesthetists
    Fantastic band ready made to make a party with a wide variety of great songs. All of our guests commented on how much fun they had on the dance floor and we couldn't agree more!
    David Curran - Wedding
    The Fiction were absolutely brilliant - we couldn’t fault them in anyway! They played a perfect selection and range of songs, and we loved the lead singers voice. The music got everyone up and dancing which was our main aim! We also got a lot of compliments from guests about how great the band was. I would highly recommend them! Thank you so much.
    Fran Browne - Wedding
    They turned up and set up as agreed and were accommodating to the needs of us on the day. They played a solid couple of sets and got the crowd up and dancing. They did a great job.
    Craig Barker - Wedding
    We were truly blown away by the Fiction and couldn’t have asked for a better band to perform at our wedding on 3rd August. All of our guests were really enjoying the music and we can’t thank you enough for making our night so special. A big thank you to the Fiction who were even willing to allow a member of our wedding party perform with them on our first dance, thank you for being so flexible.
    Tom & Louise - Wedding
    We very much appreciate the bands learning (and practising) our first dance as it was not a song in their existing repartee. They absolutely nailed the song and the band really added to our evening. I only wish they could have played for longer.
    Sally Hands - Wedding
    We’d highly recommend them and would definitely book them again. Our guests are still raving about the music. They also learned a song for our first dance which they played beautifully.
    Samantha Madeiros - Wedding
    Great band - reliable , punctual, great sound and got everyone on the dance floor. Thanks to The Fiction for helping to make our wedding day really special.
    Fiona Cooper - Wedding
    Just wanted to say thank you again to you and the band for an amazing night last night. I have been to a fair few balls at Headley and last night was definitely the most people I have seen on the dance floor during a band performance. Every one had a great time and I've received a number of compliments from guests regarding your set. I will definitely be recommending the band for all future functions at the Mess.
    Debra Hayhurst - Charity Ball
    Brilliant band and very friendly guys! 10/10 great job!!
    Kevin Fagan - Party
    The Fiction we excellent from start to finish. The set list they had chosen was perfect for our friends and family and they performed excellently and really got the party going. There were many comments from the guests as to how good they thought the band were. They made the day extra special for my wife and I and I could not praise or recommend them enough. Amazing evening, Thank you!
    Andrew Gooderham - Wedding
    An enormous 'Thank You' to The Fiction, they were brilliant and a nicer group of guys you couldn't wish to meet. They made our event truly memorable and special, everyone had a great evening.
    Claire Tull - Queensway of Paddington Lodge Ladies' Festival
    This band were great for our modern wedding, keeping a mix of adults from 20 to 50+ years old up and dancing throughout both their sets. A good mix of some timeless classics and modern pieces from a talented group of musicians. Thank You!
    Louisa McCutcheon - Wedding
    The fictions overall performance was very impressive, they were professional and their repertoire was wide and varied, a lot of our guests complimented the band! I would recommend the fiction and would use them again!
    Lee Taylor - Wedding
    Great sound and tunes, lots of positive feedback from guests, efficient and friendly and a pleasure to have play at our wedding.
    Elizabeth Collard - Marquee Wedding
    The dance floor was full all night. That speaks for itself! Thank you.
    Hannah Chapple - Wedding
    The fiction were a great band to have at our party. They sounded great and played a good mix of modern and older hits that went down very well. They judged the mood and the evening very well and adapted accordingly. They arrived promptly and were very professional throughout. A pleasure to have them and entertaining !
    Anita Lewis - Joint 50th Birthday Party
    We can honestly say we would rate the fiction a 10+ for every single question on this feedback form. Our guests and us, especially me (the bride) had the most fabulous time and the I couldn't have asked for anything more from the band. We've had so many comments about how great they were and I just can't thank them enough as well as the booking process through bands for hire. SIMPLY AMAZING!!!! thank you again,
    Alice Walker - Wedding
    We hired The Fiction for our staff Xmas party in a marquee outside my house and they were simply superb. We had no idea what to expect as we could only going by the Bands For Hire website. Really nice people and amazing musicians. The lead singer is simply out of this world and never missed a note the whole evening. Worth every penny and hope to hire again for other events.
    Richard Edwards - Christmas Party
    All of our guests raved about The Fiction and we have even had a few requesting their details. They were very talented and professional and made our wedding perfect-thank you guys!10/10!
    Charley French - Wedding
    The guys were charming and very happy to sing 12 songs I chose from their repertoire. They interacted with the crowd brilliantly feeding off each other. They nailed it and I would recommend them to anyone.
    John Morrison - 50th Birthday Party
    The Get Down were sizzling hot! They had our wedding guests dancing all night long and made us feel very special indeed. Amazing vocalist and an incredible band. Would highly recommend.
    Greg Harradine - Wedding
    They made our day even more special. They sang a huge range of songs which got everyone up on their feet. We were highly impressed.
    Catherine Burge - Wedding
    After having a complete headache booking the venue for our event, it was quite late notice, and I didn’t hold much hope of sorting any entertainment. I found Bands for Hire on the internet and from then it was a complete breeze. Excellent communication from the agent and the band all the way, completely put my mind at ease and on the night the band where great!
    Nicky Simpson - Corporate Anniversary
    The Fiction's performance was seamless and we only wished their sets were longer! They played our requested songs as well as taking all sorts of odd family requests in between sets, including Neil Diamond! We also loved that they had practised our first dance ahead of time and felt they did a very good job of our chosen song! Thank you again for making our day a memorable one!
    Rebecca Blackmore - Wedding
    The Fiction were superb. A great set, had everyone dancing and played a wide range of music and styles. As one of the guests said, aside from hiring the Rolling Stones, it's difficult to see how the band could have been any better .. truly made the evening and we received so many thanks for a great evening. Many thanks!
    Pamela O'Keefe - 50th Birthday Party
    From start to finish, communication was excellent. The Fiction are an excellent band, and delivered quality entertainment to all age age groups, making our daughters wedding the "Perfect Day".
    Colin Reeves - Wedding
    The Fiction was absolutely amazing. Easy to contact before the event and very professional at the wedding. The set list was perfect for us and they took on board all of our requests. The band really did make our night, they had everyone up dancing (including my 90 year old grandma) and we had so many compliments about how great the band were. We can't thank them enough!
    Chloe Gower-Page - Wedding
    The band were absolutely great at our wedding. All very friendly, professional and the music was great with a very talented vocalist. Good communication leading up to the event and good song choices. Would highly recommend!
    Nick Arnold - Wedding
    The Fiction were absolutely brilliant. All of our guests loved them and they had everybody up dancing within minutes. They played the songs we asked for and even a special request to end the night which ended in bride and groom crowd surfing! What a fantastic band who made our wedding reception so enjoyable! We loved every minute!
    Katy Irvine - Wedding
    We were so impressed with The Fiction! They were exactly what we hoped they would be and myself and my husband danced to every song!! (Along with a large amount of our wedding guests!!) A great band was so important to us and it really helped make our day! Thank you!
    Anna Roberts - Wedding
    We booked The Fiction for our wedding and they were sensational from start to finish. They were easy to communicate with, replying to emails quickly, turned up on time and set up quickly and discreetly. They then beautifully performed our first dance song which they learned especially for us. The rest of the music was excellent with a great variety of music from different decades which got everyone dancing. They were a perfect choice and they made the evening section of our wedding!
    Greg Carr - Wedding
    The Fiction were fantastic. They were brilliant with communications in the build up to our Wedding and amazing on the day. Many guests said they were the best Wedding band they had ever heard and several wanted their details for future events. The whole band were incredible and very tight. Would highly recommend.
    Joe Sherman - Wedding
    We literally didn’t leave the dance floor all night along with most of our guests. The set lists were spot on, we picked a handful of tracks in advance but the guys managed to put together their entire sets perfectly for us and our guests. A special thanks to the lead singer who sang a Bollywood song with a few of Sureka’s family members which was an amazing surprise on the night! All of our guests were complementing the band during the night and since the wedding too. Thanks to the band for creating such a special evening and keeping the party going all night!
    James Nash - Wedding
    We'd just like to thank the guys for a great performance which added to a great night. They had everyone up and dancing from the first song and the "book-ending" of Mr Brightside worked a treat plus the Oasis encore went down fantastically. Feedback from our friends and family was excellent too. Great guys, great band, many thanks
    Scott Oliver - 25th Wedding Anniversary
    The Fiction played at our wedding on the 26th August 2018. They were absolutely amazing; great singing, music and overall stage presence. The amount of compliments they received from our guests was through the roof - they truly made our night one to remember. After lots of research, we couldn't be any happier with The Fiction as our wedding band. Thank you so much!
    Hemish Goodeal - Wedding
    They were fantastic, friendly, professional, so many of my guests commented on how good they were. They made my party a great success. Thank you.
    Stephen Widdows - Wedding
    Everyone at our wedding enjoyed their performance. A nice bunch of guys, tight and musical playing, and a competent and professional stage persona. It's a shame they couldn't have played longer than 2 hours booked as everyone was having so much fun!
    Ed Alton - Wedding
    The Fiction were amazing - friendly, on time, lively, and most importantly they kept the dance floor absolutely crammed all night! Thank you so, so much!
    Claire Bemister - Wedding
    The Fiction were incredibly professional and the performances were fantastic. We hired the band for a wedding and they definitely got everyone dancing. The second set in particular was very tailored to our music taste and we were totally thrilled with them.
    Sarah - Wedding
    The Fiction played at our wedding last year and they were amazing. We had so many compliments from our guests who all danced the night away. They had a great repertoire with something for everyone. They also did a fantastic job of learning our first dance at fairly short notice. We would definitely recommend. Thank you!
    Sarah-Jane Greg - Wedding
    Great people to deal with and very flexible / easy going during the evening. Talented musicians who played a great variety of music to suit all tastes, just a shame our event had to end, we could have carried on listening and dancing much longer given the chance!
    Eleanor - Ball
    The band were superb, especially during the second set that had everyone on the dance floor. Also really appreciate the playlist they put together for the interval and the help playing our own music after their set had finished
    Nicola Barke - Wedding
    Professional, great songs, amazing voices and kept everyone involved. Everyone had great things to say about them the next few weeks. Thanks for being a big part in making it a great evening!
    David Loubser - Wedding
    We will use them again! Volume just right and musical ability and repertoire excellent.
    Clem Davies - Private Party
