HARD TO HANDLE BAND are the refreshing alternative to tired old function bands. Each year, over 100 brides, grooms and other clients trust us to provide top quality live entertainment at their wedding receptions, parties and other functions at prestige venues around Basildon and Essex. You don’t need to hire a large expensive events band to make your night truly memorable – you just need to hire HARD TO HANDLE BAND!

Live band plus free DJ

If you hire a band through an entertainment agency, not only will you pay more than hiring a band direct but you will be charges extra for hiring a DJ to play when the band aren’t performing. Boo…but when you hire us direct through our website, we’ll provide you with over 2 hours of great sounding band music, but also a live DJ too at no extra cost. That means your whole evenings’ entertainment is taken care of from the very first song until the end of the night. Hooray!

Killer Anthems, All Night Long

All the music we play is instantly recognisable and designed your guests on the dance floor as quickly as possible and keep them there. There are no filler songs, just music you’ll want to sing and dance to – you’ll hear 2 hours of indie, rock, pop, soul and more. But don’t blame us if you end up in a sweaty heap and wake up the next day with aching feet and a sore throat. You have been warned…

What we do

On the day of your wedding reception, party or function, you’ll be nice and relaxed. Why? Because we will have spent time in the months before talking to you about what times you would like us to play, what we will be providing and what music you will want to hear. We will also have spoken to your venue manager to ensure they’re happy with our service, too. We have played at venues such as Crondon Park, Cromwell Manor and Holiday Inn Basildon but as a three piece band with a nice compact set up we’re happy to perform at any venue, small or large, in Basildon and Essex.

Entertainment all night long, your way

Yes, you really do get to choose the music. We’re sure you’ll love a lot of the songs on our massive playlist but you are also more than welcome to request your favourite songs. You’ll find videos and MPs on our Music page and also reviews from the people we play to on our website – brides and grooms, birthday people and lots of others, too.
