Be Sharp

“A wealth of experience, guaranteed to get you moving”

As well as our gigs/concerts in pubs and music venues, we have, since the early days of the band, been asked to play Private Parties by our friends and fans. These can range from Birthdays, Engagements, Weddings, Anniversaries, New Years, Weekend Pub Festivals, Summer Garden Parties as well as Corporate Events. In fact any excuse at all for a gathering of people.

We like to pride ourselves on a wealth of experience in these areas and can offer much advice if desired on the do’s and don’ts of a successful event. You will see below our Party set list and we will also draw songs from our regular list too if you so desire. So if you are interested in talking to us about your celebrations please call us on 020 8239 9151 or email us.
