5 stars - We Are Guardians are Highly Recommended booked We Are Guardians for their event

“Chris played solo at our wedding (Sept 2015) and was fantastic, from very first contact, meeting up to discuss, through to the big day Chris was extremely professional but also really personable. Great guy and an even better voice, all our guests commented on how good he was, and is still being talked about a week later. He sang Lucky Man (Verve) for our first dance and was one of the best solo acoustic covers I've heard, I love the song anyway but it was Epic and a moment I will never forget in no small part to Chris. Cannot recommend highly enough.”

5 stars - We Are Guardians are Highly Recommended booked We Are Guardians for their event

“Chris and John came to do an hours set after our meal for our wedding day on the 7th August 2015. We wanted an acoustic set as we both like this sort of music. This was a time for relaxation and a time for people to chill after filling their stomachs. This was absolutely awesome as both entertained our guests with their fabulous skill set. Both were accomplished musicians and entertained us and our guests for 80 minutes of non stop music. My only regret was that they could not stop longer and play us in to the night which they would have done but our disco started at 7.30pm… Many of our guests commented on how good Chris and John were and how well they interacted with everyone throughout the set. We would like to place on record our thanks to Chris and John who helped make our special day even more special with their music. Everyone was in a great mood which was also down to their music they played. Anyone thinking of booking these guys please do as you will not be disappointed...”

Full Biography

Highlights
* A professional act with a wealth of experience!
* Performing cool indie classics old and new from artists such as The Beatles. The Killers, Reef, Sterephonics, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and many more!
* Acoustic sets also available and first dance requests are FREE OF CHARGE!

Formed around singer songwriter Chris, We Are Guardian's are a professional act with over 70 years experience between them. The band was established by Chris with one focus in mind, creating a function band that were non cheesy, tight and fantastic live.

We Are Guardian's provide a professional service from the top of the range equipment, to their talent and wealth of experience in performing. The band play all the classics old and new along with songs that most cover bands don't attempt. They are available to play toned down acoustic sets and take first dance requests (in advance).

Chris is a Leeds based singer songwriter who offers fantastic versions of some of the best popular music from the last 60 years. He grew up during the brit pop era listening to artists such as Oasis and Blur. Chris, a south-paw, first picked up a right handed guitar and began to learn upside down. Encouraged through his fathers love for music, he was introduced from a very early age to artists such as The Beatles, The Kinks, Rolling Stones and many more.

His interest in music continued throughout his education forming school bands, it was during this time that he began writing his own material. By the age of 28 Chris had been part of the music scene with many different bands. This lead him to touring with many established acts playing major venues across the UK and into Europe. His last gig playing original music was Bingley Festival when his band split.

Having spent 5 months playing acoustic gigs in the French Alps, Chris returned to the UK to create a function band that stood out from the rest. He is supported by a fantastic backline of musicians that have years of experience playing together.

We Are Guardian's pride themselves on their live sound and performance. They avoid the 'typical cheesy American style' front, that a majority of function bands impose on themselves.

The band hand select each song to cater for every audience member. A request can be made prior to the event should this be feasible given the style and time constraints.

The band can provide music in between sets and are also available to DJ after the live performance.
