The Modern Way were absolutely fantastic!!! They rocked the place and produced a show that most people had not experienced before. I am so glad I booked The Modern Way and would STRONGLY recommend them to anyone! - Paul Haley, Wedding Client.

Young, charismatic and highly professional, The Modern Way are an energetic 5 piece guaranteed to get your audience involved and on the dancefloor right from the first note!

With a killer repertoire, The Modern Way's performance includes something for everyone with classics from The Beatles, current pop hits from Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake, indie classics from Kings of Leon and much more! If that's not enough, the band can also learn your special song request providing enough notice is given (please see booking options for more details).

Your Event
The Modern Way's live sets are flexible and can be performed as 2 x 60 minutes or 3 x 40 minutes. If required, the band can also provide an addition 45 minute set of Soul, Funk and Motown hits (please see performance times or speak to an Alive Network booking agent for more details).

The band can also provide background music from an ipod playlist between their lives sets.

The Modern Way will tailor their look to suit your event. Whether it's a suited and booted corporate event or a more casual wedding band look, just specify your requirements to an Alive Network booking agent.

As a 5 piece band, The Modern Way require a stage space of 4m x 5m but will accommodate whatever space is available. They are very adaptable to a range of room types and will always adjust volume levels to suit your needs.

Acoustic Set
The Modern Way can perform 2 x 30 minute sets of acoustic music, ideal for afternoon performances, drinks receptions and over dinner entertainment.

With stripped back 'live lounge' versions of Radiohead's High and Dry, Bruno Mars' Just The Way You Are and more, The Modern Way's acoustic set will create a special atmosphere for your special occasion. 

The acoustic sessions are available as a Duo (Vocals + Acoustic Guitar), a Trio (Vocals + Acoustic Guitar + Keys) or the full 5 piece band (Vocals + Acoustic Guitar + Bass + Keys + Percussion).

The acoustic set warmed the crowd up and set the scene for the night beautifully. You were both professional and entertaining, we could not have asked for anymore.
- Andy and Becky, Wedding Clients.

DJ Package
The Modern Way can also provide a DJ Package for your event. The package includes laptop (with vast amount of popular songs from all eras); Band member manning/ making basic announcements/ taking requests.

Previous Experience
The Modern Way may be young, but their experience and professionalism is second to none. Members have played on everything from Jools Holland to The Only Way Is Essex!
