Our extensive repertoire features songs made famous by the likes of Chic, ABBA, Earth Wind & Fire, Madonna, Katy Perry……..and many more guaranteed to get your party started! Each member of The Band has a wealth of experience in both live and studio performance. We have all worked with a variety of names within the music industry and we take great pride in our professionalism to ensure that your event is one to remember forever. Our live sound is first class and we don’t use off the shelf backing tracks. We record our own drums, bass guitar, synth lines & backing vocals which are sequenced on stage together with live vocals, keyboards and guitar. When you see us – you won’t be disappointed! Start The Party cater for all kinds of private & corporate events and we will happily travel nationwide to your chosen venue. We can be booked as a standard 3-piece or with additional musicians/dancers for larger events. We also offer a DJ service. Whatever the occasion – we can deliver!

Aidan Townend – Keyboards Having played the piano since he was 3 years old, it’s fair to say that Aidan’s performance skills are of the highest calibre.
