You are looking for a band that's "a bit different" to play at your event - it's an important decision!

You want your band to be entertaining but you also need to know that they will be reliable professional and courteous. They should add real value to your event - not just turn up and play!

Look no further than DEXTER. Established in 1997 in the Midlands and with an awesome reputation for giving the crowd exactly what they want Dexter has continually been the choice of event planners around the UK.

With a powerful repertoire Dexter has entertained audiences at venues from marquee weddings and stately homes to thousands of people at open-air concert venues. They are equally at home providing the live entertainment for a wedding or birthday party as they are playing for major corporations or university balls.

The five members of Dexter have many years of live performance under their belts. Members of the band have performed in venues such as the London Palladium and the Marquee Club in London and all members have numerous recording credits to their name. Dexter has also shared the bill with artists including Jools Holland and his Orchestra Catatonia the Honeyz and Coolio.

The set contains rock and pop classics from the 60s to the present day packed with guaranteed floor fillers and sing-along favourites. Material has been carefully selected to provide not just the best in more 'established' songs by acts such as Robbie Williams and ABBA but also more energetic tunes from the likes of Plan B and the Killers.

Whatever the song, the attention to detail is outstanding. Multi-part guitar and vocal arrangements, as well as state-of-the-art equipment, bring the set to life in a way few other bands can match.

Your event
If the event requires an element of tailored entertainment, the band is happy to offer a personalised service for a negotiable fee. With advance notice, individual songs that are special to the event or audience can be performed . This works particularly well with weddings (that 'special' song for the Bride and Groom) or companies that have a particular 'anthem' as their team song!

As a chargeable option, Dexter offer a fully self-contained DJ package using state-of-the-art software and extra lighting effects. The band members man this themselves and are able to offer the same professional service as a DJ that would cost considerably more.

Like the 80's?
Dexter can also perform as the ultimate tribute to the 1980's. If you want to have your event transported back to the 80’s with smash hits from Soft Cell, Madonna, Duran Duran & authentic 80’s clothing and costumes, visit Alive & Kicking's profile now for more information!

What about the swinging 60's?
Dexter can also bring to life, the sounds & memories from the wonderful 60's. If you want authentic 60's instruments & costumes, with classic tracks from The Supremes, The Beatles & more; visit So 60's profile now for more information!

So who trusts Dexter with helping to make sure that their event is memorable?
