They have also played at venues/festivals such as The Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Arena, The o2, Shepherds Bush Empire, Hammersmith Apollo, Union Chapel, Glastonbury, V Festival and T in the park. Ground Shaker musicians all have extensive wedding and corporate band experience and play regularly throughout the year.

What Sort Of Music Do They Play?

What Will The Band Be Wearing?
The band can adapt their look to your individual needs. If it is a formal occasion they will be very smartly dressed with the men in suits/waistcoats and ties and the ladies in dresses. Equally, if your event requires a more casual look the band can cater for this too. Inform your agent what you require and Ground Shaker will meet your needs.

Your Event
Ground Shaker are able to provide a variety of services throughout your event. They can deliver a laid back acoustic duo set ideal for a meal or afternoon drinks. Additionally, they can provide a standard 4-piece energetic band for your evening party. However, if you really want to ‘wow’ your guests why not try their highly recommended 7-piece combination of a male vocalist/guitarist, 2x female vocals, saxophone, keyboards, bass, and drums. Moreover Ground Shaker can provide an additional brass section and percussionist, which will completely blow your guests away! The band is able to play background or disco music between sets, which is automatically mixed within DJ software ensuring your party atmosphere is never interrupted. Just inform your agent of your individual needs and Ground Shaker will ensure that those needs are met.

In terms of the bands set times Ground Shaker will endeavor to work around you and your guests. For example they can play 2x45min, 3x40min or 2x60min sets. Again inform the agent what your requirements are.

For a 4-piece service Ground Shaker would preferably like a 4m x 3m stage area. However, they are very adaptable and experienced with a variety of stage and room sizes. If you require a bigger Ground Shaker your agent we will inform you of an approximate stage size for the band size you have chosen.
