Jazz is a diverse genre of music, ranging from traditional jazz to modern laid back lounge styles, so there's a style of jazz for every mood you want to create at your event. Dixieland jazz bands play upbeat, foot tapping, traditional jazz.
A tribute band or tribute act recreates the music and experience of famous acts, looking and sounding as close to 'the real thing' as possible, often with accurate costumes and instruments. So, you get all the excitement without the high price!
Wedding bands for hire are the workhorses of live entertainment, able to perform a wide variety of songs from the 50s to the latest hits. Often referred to as cover bands or party bands, these types of band play music made famous by other artists.
Swing bands and Rat Pack singers are stylish and sophisticated with a dash of Las Vegas, with a vocalist (or three) creating the "'Ol Black Magic" of The Rat Pack, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé or Jamie Cullum.
Big bands are dance or show bands that combine brass, woodwind, sax, vocalists and drums to create full, vibrant and nostalgic music. Think Glenn Millar, the Rat Pack's backing bands and today's versatile jazz orchestras at The Proms and similar.
As their name suggests, these bands play an infectious mix of upbeat music including classic swing, jive and rock and roll hits that always get guests out of their seats and onto the dance floor!
These bands invite you to step back to a time when pop was about superb harmonies, great voices and unforgettable tunes by classic artists. Versatile and highly accomplished, they can switch from high energy to high romance in the turn of a stiletto!
The sounds of the 70s, when flares were in and afro haircuts were cool, and chart music was dominated by the irresistible rise of disco. Disco bands and Funk bands are a great choice if you want your guests to get down and boogie all night long.
Mariachi bands are the street musicians of Mexico, a strolling band of violin, trumpet, guitar and accordion players dressed in traditional smart suits and sombrero hats. And thanks to adverts for a certain triangular corn snack, more popular than ever!
Steel bands are the iconic sound of the Caribbean, playing steel pans (drums) to evoke visions of sand, sea and endless sunshine! Portable, flexible and fascinating to watch, steel bands bring a ray of musical sunshine to any event.

Excellent experience when booking a band. Alive have great knowledge of their bands, they respond very quickly to any questions. I have used them twice now without any concerns and wont hesitate to book with them in the future.
Efficient, friendly and professional. Clare at Alive Network is super efficient and found us the perfect artist for our special day. She’s patient and showed great communication, would definitely recommend.
We have booked a band for our wedding in 2024, Claire was quick to respond to our enquiry and providing a quote. We obviously have to wait a couple of years before our wedding, but we are really happy with the service so far!
5 stars! Grant at Alive Network was a Godsend!! He knew all the right questions to ask and we went from being completely clueless to finding our perfect wedding band! So professional, friendly and knowledgeable! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys to anyone.
Fantastic choice or performers & Clare has been so patient & kind whilst we took ages to decide on the best acts for our events. Really looking forward to our Christmas singers this year. Thank you for making it such an easy process.
Fantastic service! We came across this website quite randomly when browsing for wedding entertainment. We decided to book James Nicholas for our drinks reception. We are so glad we did! He was fantastic and so many of the guests commented on how talented he was and how good his set was. The team who run Alive Network were brilliant. Communication was frequent and clear and more than happy to be accommodating. I would definitely recommend, you'll be in good hands!
It is the best place to book any entertainment for your parties. Very quick, efficient and easy. Confirmation on your booking nearly instant. Quality of presenters of entertainment outstanding. I booked last year and booking right now for December 2022.
Clara at Alive Network was so helpful. We loved the website, it was so good to be able to view the acts, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alive Network to family & Friends.
Perfect middle-man. Alive Network were the perfect middle-man in the process. There were plenty of options to choose from and they even gave individualised assistance when I asked for it. They handled the booking, contract, payment and communications very well. The band were great and seemed well looked after themselves. All round, very happy customer.
We found our artist Thomas as the result of an on-line search via Alive Network. And finding this performer was a very good result. We have subsequently booked him on two further occasions and been thoroughly delighted with the outcome. The most recent event was on the 17th December 2022. We can thank Alive Network for arranging contracts to the finest detail and fuss free completion but it has to be the artist himself who absolutely made for an unforgettable evening. Thank you.
Clara at Alive Network, so patient and helpful! She had the tough job of finding the right act for a birthday get together. I loved the website, it was great to be able to listen to the acts. Clara had a lot of patience, as we were a tricky client to find the right act for! I'm looking forward to hearing our act live next year!
Fantastic easy to use service. This was a really useful website which provided us with a wide range of experienced artists for a wedding. We had looked around other websites locally, but didn't manage to find such a comprehensive list of providers. The quote was simple, quick, with a courtesy call included and a clear contract provided. Such an easy to access service, took the stress out of the whole process. Booking was almost immediate! Would highly recommend.
Excellent process - thanks. Very good website giving all the info you need to find an act that suits your taste. Communication has been great to date - Gemma has been terrific. Quotes received were nice and clear. Booking up our chosen artist was also nice and straightforward. We now look forward to our evening celebration next month.
Easy to use website. Loads of info on performers and booking process went well.
Very professional and helpful in understanding what I required for organising my 50th, even down to the sound engineer.
Grant at Alive Network was excellent in helping us find the right fit for our wedding, helping us secure two artists who have both been great so far in their approach.
Professional and prompt. Marc Hassall was extremely prompt in responding to questions and coming back with helpful answers. I felt in safe hands booking a performer for a birthday party.
What an amazing service. I booked 2 artists for my wedding day and Clare made the process so easy and was so understanding with all my questions. Looking forward to working with them nearer the time.
Fantastic, Clara was superb with recommending a solo guitarist for our wedding ceremony. We will certainly use again for events, a very large THANK YOU
Highly recommend Alive Network. In particular Gemma, so professional throughout. The whole process of viewing and selecting our artist from their website has been easy to follow. When I contacted Alive Network Gemma was so professional and extremely helpful . This made my decision to book the artist all the more easy. Extremely happy with the service.
Very professional Agency with helpful friendly staff and a brilliant selection of artists. Alive’s web site was very easy to use to help me narrow down potential Bands for my Charity Fundraising Ball I particularly like the fact that I could watch showreels of Bands which enabled me to assess Bands vocal and musical talents which gave me confidence to book through Alive. Clare and the staff at Alive were extremely helpful and knowledgeable I used Alive for my previous Ball and was delighted with the service and quality of the Band so I have every confidence the Band I have chosen will do a brilliant job this time round.
