About The Musicquarium

Live music has been a passion of ours for many years. After attending many private and public events involving live music we realised that it was usually the music that was the most memorable part of the event. Very rarely did we overhear guests discussing table decorations or flowers. With live music playing such an important part at so many events we decided to use our expertise to enable our clients to be able to tailor each performance to fit exactly with their event requirements. The Musicquarium was thus created and we have been providing bespoke soundtracks for private and public events ever since.

We started out in 2001 with one band (Funkification) offering one style of music (funk & soul) with one size option (9-piece). This band quickly became very popular and our clients were soon asking if we could scale the size up or down, perform different styles of music and generally cover all musical angles. For a while we used this one and only band to provide all styles of music but this became a little confusing for our clients, especially when we were talking about a band called ‘Funkification’ to provide an evening of mellow jazz. To meet the varying needs of our clients we selected a variety of hand-picked top professional musicians, created additional band options and packages to specialise in various styles of music and arranged each band's repertoire to ensure the possibility of multiple size options.

Since then our services have grown to the full scale production that you see today; numerous self-contained professional acts that have their own identity and top class reputation. We have musicians performing at hundreds of weddings, Jewish weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, Barmitzvahs, Batmitzvahs, product launches, festivals, award ceremonies or public venues each year. We employ the services of some of the most respected names in the professional music industry.

We have a great range of live bands and musicians to choose from, covering funk, soul, pop, rock, disco, indie, modern chart, jazz, swing, jump jive, brass band, New Orleans traditional and even classical music. You can even build your own bespoke band if we don't have an option that meets your requirements. We have musicians located in London, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Bath and Brighton so our services cover the whole of the UK and beyond. We can provide you with the perfect live music package no matter where your event is being held.

Our comprehensive website contains full information about all of our services but we also have a demo CD, live DVD video and a full colour brochure available free of charge. Please contact us with your event details and we will send you a detailed quotation covering a variety of options.

If you have any questions that have not been answered here please don't hesitate to ask. We look forward to working with you soon.
