Alongside my original music project (which you can listen to here: https://joekeegan.co.uk/music/) I also run a function and events band based out of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. We specialise in high quality bespoke music for events of all shapes and sizes. From Jazz, Motown, Funk and Soul to Chart and Pop music, Irish Trad and Country.
A show we played recently was a launch event to a brand new bar in Preston’s Corn Exchange Called 1842. (http://bar1842.co.uk) They wanted the raucous sound of a Funk band with a horns section to open up their venue with a bang. Here’s what we opened with:
Our bad ranges from a 3 piece band for small intimate events up to a 12 piece band with a standard 5 piece pop band accompanied by a 4 piece string section and a 3 piece horn section (and everything in between.) We charge out at an affordable rate of £100 per musician per hour with an additional booking fee of £100 so fees are variable based on the size of band you require and how long you want us to play for.
