PartyDown have played many Corporate events, countless weddings, hundreds of 40th, 50th, 60th and 70th Birthday Parties in Stately homes, at Exclusive Clubs, for house parties in conservatories and marquees in gardens all over the UK!
Their vast experience helps them truly understand how to make your corporate event, wedding or birthday party really into a night to remember. Their professionalism, coupled with a passion and love for what they do, comes out in every performance.
At a typical event, they arrive a couple of hours before they are due to play. They set up all of their state of the art PA sound system and lights, ready to go. As well as using their vast experience, they will work with you in deciding what to play (and what not to play…!) Also, they put on all the music between our sets – our DJ sets.
Here are some recent testimonials:
“The Upbeats were simply excellent. Not only was the music fantastic, but they are really nice guys too. Helpful and supportive, the dance floor was packed from start to finish. We had a varied age group at the party and all enjoyed the performance without exception. I would highly recommend this band and if I was hosting another party they would be the first band I would contact.” Simon Price – Summer Party

He kept in contact beforehand, making sure I was happy with the arrangements and playlist etc. He was so professional, I just knew I didn’t need to worry about anything! On the night the guys arrived on time and set up with no issues. Mark gauged the music well and everyone was up and dancing right to the end….All in all a brilliant night with Nick and I thoroughly enjoyed and from which we have had lots of great feedback from our guests as well.
