5 stars - Paper Planes are Highly Recommended
booked Paper Planes for their event at Luton Hoo Hotel Golf & Spa in Bedfordshire

“Paper Planes entertained our audience of an age range of 25 to 75 with an equally broad range of music. Sam is a talented musician, who has a great rapport with the audience and makes the most of their ability to be flexible with a totally live performance. I would certainly be very happy to recommend them.”

You were absolutely brilliant!

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for helping to make my 40th so special - you were absolutely brilliant! You also gained a fair few female admirers too (occupational hazard I guess). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you!”

Everyone loved your performance.

“Thank you so much for taking part in my 50th birthday celebrations – you lived up to all my expectations and more. Your swing set was amazing, followed by some really great songs including my all time favourite 'wherever you will go'. I totally loved it and it made the evening so so special. Thank you for learning it especially for me. As you know I have always loved your singing and guitar playing but tonight you excelled. Everyone loved your performance . You are a true professional and fantastic musician. I can’t wait to hear you play again soon. In fact I will follow you wherever you go!”

“I can’t thank you enough for the fabulous show you put on for us on Saturday. The atmosphere you created and the momentum with which you performed all evening was awesome. Everyone felt the same and I don’t think the evening would have been quite so brilliant if we hadn’t had you and your talent. I hope you weren’t too tired, I was conscious that you did all the setting up/and packing away as well as performing for hours. Thank you so very much.”

Paper Planes are a highly polished, completely organic 3-piece rock, pop and soul outfit. With a repertoire spanning 7 decades, they cover everything from Elvis and Buddy Holly, to Pharell and Jessie J.

Booking Paper Planes provides you with a very talented front man and a great rhythm section. From supporting Ed Sheeran and Noel Gallagher, to playing guitar for Disney and more recently touring Scandinavia as a solo guitarist and vocalist, Sam is the perfect front-man for your event.

Please note: The bassist and drummer may vary from time to time because they are working musicians but Paper Planes front man 'Sam' will remain the same at every event. Rest assured, the drummer & bass player are selected from a pool of impressive musicians, from a drummer that has played for Andrew Lloyd Webber, to a bassist that has played for Boyzone!

Between Paper Planes, members have played for big artists, at huge festivals to people’s front rooms. Whatever the event, Paper Planes love to entertain and guarantee to bring their party to yours!

Afternoon Acoustic Band (see booking options for more details)
Paper Planes can perform as an acoustic band perfect for providing light entertainment during your drinks reception, over dinner or before the electric band's main set. With lead vocals, acoustic guitar, double bass (at specific request) and drums, this great line up will bring another dimension to your special event's entertainment. 

Please note:
The only thing that is overdubbed in these videos are the guitar solos in ‘She’s Electric’ and The Kinks medley. Paper Planes have no backing tracks to hide behind. Their sound is 100% live.
