Full Biography

The Botanists are the most fun five-piece wedding, function and party band you could come across in the North West! With over 40 years combined experience in the music industry, they know exactly what your event needs to make it extra special.

All about getting the party started and carrying you through the night, The Botanists have refined their repertoire to cover all of the best Funk, Soul, Motown, Rock and 90s Bangers you could ever wish for, in addition to many classics from all genres and eras!

With backgrounds in cruising, session work, musical theatre, festivals and more, they can cover every base when it comes to getting the party started, it's their job after all!

As standard, The Botanists will provide 1 x 60 minute set and 1 x 45 minute set, with a DJ playlist full of hits during the break to keep the dancefloor full, and your guests looking lively.

Should your booking be for a wedding, they will also play your chosen song for the bride and groom's first dance (subject to at least 4 weeks notice). Any further requests that are not found on their huge repertoire, will be charged as optional extras (see booking options).
