Absolutely Amazing, the perfect post lockdown band

5 stars - The Hot Keys are Highly Recommended
booked The Hot Keys for their Wedding in Cheshire June 2021

“We had Hot Keys for our Wedding a little over a week ago. They were THE perfect band after such a long lockdown. Their music was fantastic and they had amazing energy on stage. They were just so good from start to finish, and everyone I spoke to couldn't speak more highly about how much they enjoyed their performance. They were really easy to communicate with too, and just made everything run really smooth. I can't recommend them high enough if want to have "classy" but fun music to get everyone dancing.”

Quality band, great musicians!

Fantastic band that got the party going!

The Hot Keys feature some of London’s most in demand musicians. With a collective wealth of gigging experience, The Hot Keys have been raising the roof on parties up and down the country since 2009. With their unique sound and energetic renditions of classic songs, The Hot Keys have developed a reputation of one of the most exciting and original function bands working today.

The band can cater to all tastes and are suitable for all events, including: weddings, parties, charity balls, corporate functions and award ceremonies. The Hot Keys have performed for (and in some cases with) high profile clients such as the Leicester Tigers rugby team, Charlotte Church, Patrick Stewart and former prime minister Gordon Brown and his party.

The band comes as a 5 piece (drums, bass, guitar, piano and vocals), with the option of adding horn players, an additional singer (female), a percussionist and a DJ, expanding the band to a potential 11 piece. For jazz gigs (or jazz sets at larger gigs) the band can do a smaller set up of 2, 3 or 4 musicians at a reduced cost. The Hot Keys come with an extensive rig of PAT tested equipment including a PA system and disco lights for that authentic party atmosphere.

Please note; when booking the 7 piece or larger lineup, additional travel fees will be required.

For the most professional, fun and energetic performance around, at the most competitive prices, anywhere in the UK, choose The Hot Keys!
