The Highlife are a young, contemporary and versatile party band with a vast playlist of modern chart hits as well as classics from the 60’s through to the 90’s.

The band consists of 5 professional and experienced musicians who have all worked with some of the biggest names in the music business as well as starring in west end musicals. Our musicians have worked with Jamie Cullum, Alison Moyet, Bjorn Again, Liberty X, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, and INXS to name but a few. All members of the band have extensive experience of playing at weddings, University balls, private parties, charity events, and corporate functions.

The Highlife are available as either a 5 piece band with Female and Male vocals, or a 4 piece band with Male vocals. This enables the band to adapt to stage space limitations, and most importantly, adapt to the budget of the client.

What makes The Highlife different to others bands is their ability to keep their playlist fresh and up to date, playing the most recent chart hits of the 00’s as well as classics form the 60’s to the 90’s. The playlist is always organised on the night, and is always varied to cater for the age range of the audience, and the songs that they know will get people up and dancing.

The band strive to be totally reliable, punctual, and smartly dressed. Onstage they are energetic and entertaining, involving the audience in the performance wherever possible! The band is fully self contained, providing a top of the range PA and lighting system for audiences up to 300 people.

With The Highlife you get great value for money as they can play up to 3 x 45 minute sets. They can also play music cd’s during band breaks so you don’t need to book a separate DJ.
