Cartoon Kings's Biography

Line up:

5 Piece - guitar/lead male vocal, female vocals, bass, drums + Piano
4 piece - as above minus female vocal
3 piece- guitar/lead male vocal, bass, drums



The Cartoon Kings
The Cartoon Kings perform mainly in the Midlands area and like most bands offer a large selection of songs by original artists. However The Kings also offer the choice of either electric or acoustic shows making them ideal for ANY private function festival or corporate event. They can cater for weddings, parties, special occasions and anything else. Oozing with personality and style the Cartoon Kings can supply whatever you’re looking for!



Each band member has many years of experience at playing live so you can expect a professional show with up to 2 hours of live music which still maintains a raw energetic feeling. They can provide a three piece line up if needed for smaller venues. The Kings will play music via a laptop between sets which is included in the price! Or provide a separate DJ for an extra fee.

The Cartoon Kings' repertoire ranges from Oasis to Florence and the Machine, Van Morrison to The Beatles. There is a wide and versatile selection in the rock/pop genre as well as guaranteed 'dance-floor' classics like Make Me Smile I’m a Believer and Brown-Eyed Girl with up to date music from artists such as Duran Duran, Snow Patrol, Kings of Leon and Amy Winehouse completing the play list.

Based around a 5-piece line-up the band are
Mat Dale (vocals/guitar)
Becky Corneby (vocals)
Chris Watt (bass and vocals)
Wes Fife (drums)
Ken Hughes (piano)


If you need a good-time Rock ‘n’ Roll band that’s not just 'going through the motions' then look no further than "The Cartoon Kings"!!!

Venue Review
"The Cartoon Kings have been one of the resident bands at Swan Live since it began four years ago they are very professional and a great set of guys to work with. With both Becky and Matt contributing to lead vocals you are ensured a well rounded sound and varied set list. The crowd that turn out every time we book the Kings get a set of party tracks and are always entertained with a few modern surprises from the likes of The Fratellis Duffy Amy Winehouse and The Killers. I have since recommended the Cartoon Kings to lots of friends and family for parties or weddings and they never disappoint….the Kings rule!"
- Ben Sutcliffe, The Swan Hotel Stafford July 2008

The Cartoon Kings have played for many corporate clients and venues:

MBNA Bank
IKEA
The Belfry West Mids
Lincoln Birmingham and Worcester University
Weston Park

IMPORTANT- Please Note:
* This band are unable to perform at venues with sound limiters set below 92db
* The band prefer a stage where ever possible but they are happy to perform on the floor as long as there is a 3ft space between them and the dance floor. This is for the safety of the band members and their equipment and due to the high energy level of their performance.
* Under no circumstances are audience members/ guests to enter the stage area and touch or try to use any of the equipment. The band prides themselves on excellent quality gear and therefore do not let non band members use it.

Cartoon Kings,  highly recommended Bands to hire 31/05/2014
Cartoon Kings

"The band were superb and we'd like to thank them for accommodating all of our requests from our first dance to the list of songs to be added to their iPod playlist.

Their live sets provided music for all ages and had everyone up on the dance floor. A large number of people commented on how good the band were and what a great night everyone had.

We fully recommend this band and the security of booking through Alive Network. It was also really useful that the band got in touch with us beforehand so we could discuss set up times, arrangement of the sets and what they recommended as they have extensive experience of weddings.

Alive Network is a great place to select a band from, it provides a list of bands available in your price range for the date you select and you can listen to each bands demo's prior to booking. We wouldn't have known where to start looking for a decent band if we hadn't have gone through Alive Network. Gemma who we dealt with was very professional and readily contactable and was quick to respond to any queries."
