Happy Hour were absolutely unbelievable. We couldn’t have asked more from the band. The dance floor was completely packed. Everybody was dancing till the very end. We lost count of the number of comments on how great the band were.Tom Jarratt

Meet Happy Hour: a 4-piece function band based in Essex/Kent area.

They can cater for many styles of music from all the 60’s classics to all the present day chart hits. Their tight harmonies and professional sound comes with many years of experience in the live music industry.

The Band:
The band have played in a number of different tribute acts over the last 4 years and also had a long history of gigs with their separate original bands before deciding to join together to form Happy Hour. They enjoy playing these songs more than anything and feel it really comes across in their performances.

Happy Hour are a fun and energetic band and with a large sound - enough to fill any dance floor!

The band have done their fair share of travelling too. Playing shows in Malta Jersey Ireland Scotland Wales Isle of Wight and all around England. The band are all highly dedicated musicians and very prepared to travel anywhere.

By far the best wedding band we have ever heard and so glad it was for our wedding! - Colin Fernandes

Your Event
Happy Hour are able to provide a request service ie; should a couple wish to have a certain song played on their special day they are more than happy to add it to their set (if given adequate notice).

Acoustic Sets
Happy Hour offer two types of acoustic set options which are both perfect for creating a laid back, 'live lounge' style atmosphere at your event.

Acoustic Sets Option 2 includes 2 x 30 miniutes sets performing early evening with an early arrival of 3pm.

The lineup for both options includes 2 acoustic guitars, percussion and 4 part harmony ideal for covering songs such as Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, I'm Yours by Jason Mraz or Peaceful Easy Feeling  by The Eagles (see repertoire for full songlist & booking options for more details).

Happy Hour were all we could have hoped for and more! Their music was amazing, the guys were great fun, with infectious energy. Our guests, literally, could not stop dancing! They made our evening reception. They listened to our requests, of what to include and what not to and created a set that was just mind blowing! - Sarah and Richard

We were so impressed with Happy Hour – they were everything we hoped for and more for our wedding music. The dance floor was never empty and everyone had a dance, from young to old! They arrived on time and were very professional throughout the whole day. They even took some amazing photos of our wedding! - Helen Hardy
