They do exactly what they say in their name…! Party Starters are a fresh, female-fronted four-piece who know how to bring the party to your wedding, keeping the dancefloor pumping all night. Their sets are exciting and energetic, performing contemporary pop and rock, Motown, soul or special acoustic and solo singer sets – everything from The Beatles and Stevie Wonder to Bruno Mars and Rudimental, and more!
“What an amazing band! They played at our wedding… and totally ticked every box. Amazing acoustic set during the service. Lovely attention to detail. Super friendly, but the evening sets were rocking. Everyone got up on their feet, so much fun and dancing had by all. Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed! …you made our day even better than we could have imagined!”
