Best band ever- got all guests on the dancefloor

5 stars - The Hot Keys are Highly Recommended
booked The Hot Keys for their Wedding in London November 2021

“The Hot Keys were utterly amazing. Having seen video examples of their work we were very excited to have them play at our November wedding ( a year later than planned). They did not disappoint. Every single one of our guests loved them and messaged us afterwards to tell us that. They got everyone on the dancefloor with a great set. They are such a talented bunch of musicians and singers and lovely people to boot. Cannot recommend them highly enough”

Amazing wedding band, they nailed it

Such an incredible band, they really got the party started

booked The Hot Keys for their Wedding in Herefordshire September 2021

“We hired the Hit Keys for our wedding and they were better than we could have ever imagined. There was a slight hiccup before the event but they went above and beyond to ensure nothing affected the day. They are all exceptionally talented musicians and they made our reception so special. All of our guests loved them and they were incredibly accommodating. We danced all night!”

Amazing band that had everyone dancing all night!

5 stars - The Hot Keys are Highly Recommended
booked The Hot Keys for their Wedding in Hampshire August 2021

“We hired The Hot Keys for our wedding on 29th August 2021 and they did not disappoint! They had everyone dancing the whole night and created such a happy and energetic atmosphere with the music they played. Really upbeat, fun and perfect after over a year of limited socialising! It was fab to get up on the dance floor and dance the night away and our guests thought you were brilliant! What was also special was that Andy and his bandmates sung/played our first wedding dance - My Girl by Otis Redding - and it was amazing. Such a special moment to have that song played live and for us to dance our first dance to it as we love this song so much. Thank you The Hot Keys for making our wedding day so special. Fay and Martin.”

Brilliant band with a fantastic play list!

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!
