Pop Life was formed with the sole intent of playing live music for weddings, parties and events of all types and has developed into a highly professional premiuim event band. Pop Life play floorfilling party classics from the sixties through to the present day. They come as a standard five piece band: Amy:Lead vocals, Marilena:Bass/ Backing vocals, Joakim:Guitar/Lead & Backing vocals, Giles:Drums, & Paul:Saxophone/ Keyboards/Backing vocals. A seven piece outfit is also available combining Tony:Trumpet and Rich:Trombone with our resident saxophonist for a full brass section.
Hard work and attention to detail give Pop Life the sleek, nuanced sound that does justice to the music they perform. Every song they play is carefully chosen and lovingly arranged. Pop Life base their song arrangements closely on recorded original versions but add their own spice to give the most exciting and soulful live performance of the song you could expect to hear.
We understand how important it is not just to book a great sounding band for your event but also a professional and smartly presented outfit that can deliver when it matters. Pop Life make sure that the music is a highlight of your event, and also that everything will run smoothly for you, so that you'll have at least one less thing to worry about when you're organising the day. All of the gang at Pop Life have devoted their lives to producing and performing music, they consistently deliver an energetic and passionate performance, and with their repertoire of 100% classic party anthems they are guaranteed to delight audiences from all generations. We keep our clients well informed both prior to and during an event, remain contactable at all times and are punctual and meticulously organised throughout.
Our acoustic and jazz combined set option is available from us for all appropriate occasions, bringing together scaled down versions of classic songs, soothing ballads and much loved jazz standards.

We can tailor all our sets accordingly to suit any occasion.
We offer 2 entertainment options for you in between the band's performances. The first is an absolutely free service.
