The Travellers (Acoustic Band)

About The Travellers (Acoustic Band)

The Travellers are an acoustic band with a difference. Combining two guitars, percussion, double bass & saxophone, they offer a fresh delivery of live music through their arrangements of classic songs and modern hits with a warm feel good ‘Mumford & Sons’ style throughout each performance. Originally beginning as an acoustic duo, the musicians expanded by teaming up with their professional percussionist, double bassist & saxophonist to create the full band and haven’t looked back since.

The Travellers musicians have performed in countless function bands on stages worldwide, plus TV appearances, tours, and session work for major music label artists. After countless gigs within different bands, the lads decided to collate their musical skills and experience, and form one solid line-up to deliver powerful sets at every performance.

From their wealth of experience, The Travellers know what songs work best live and which numbers will bring your guests to the dancefloor or get them singing if they are performing their roaming sets. What’s more, by carefully constructing setlists with numbers from different decades, we make sure that guests of all ages enjoy the performance.

 

The Walkaround / roaming option

 

We love this style of performance. We will walk to different tables or groups of guests and play numerous mini sets for your different guests to enjoy. We can tailor the songs we play for each specific group we perform to; and make sure everybody gets a personal performance of songs they will love to singalong to. This is the perfect choice if you want to show your guests a performance with a twist and it works well for any feel good event be it a wedding, party, corporate event or otherwise both indoors and outdoors. Also available with saxophone in this option.

 

Adaptability for all events


Whether you’re planning a wedding, private party or corporate meeting, The Travelling Hands can provide the perfect soundtrack to your event, bring people to the dancefloor and create a warm feel good vibe for your guests.

The Travelling Hands perform at all sorts of events and can play and dress accordingly. With up to five instruments playing together, its very easy for the band to play a more relaxed set or a more lively one, so no matter whether you’re hosting a black tie dinner or an informal birthday party, you can be confident that the band will look sound and look the part for your event.

Acoustic Duo Set Available

Thinking of also hiring an acoustic duo at your event to get things started? The Travellers band members all began their gigging careers as duos so this is very comfortable territory for them and they always deliver another top-class performance.

As the musicians will be heading to your venue for the full band performance, we can add on our acoustic duo consisting the two guitarists/vocalists from the band to the schedule very easily. Plus we offer to do so at a nice affordable bolt-on price. Perfect at the start of your event, over afternoon drinks, during a dinner or even within a wedding ceremony.

The Travellers (Acoustic Band) Testimonials

In summary from start to finish the band were exceptional. Tom as the lead point of contact for the band was superb and we couldn't have asked for more help in terms of answering questions, recording demos and supporting our every need. On the day they arrived before time, and integrated brilliantly into the vibe we were trying to create for the wedding. In terms of sound, songs played and getting everyone on the dance floor we couldn't have asked for better. Tom, and the band, thank you for helping to make our woodland wedding an amazing day, and we would quite happily recommend them many times over to anyone who needs a band for their wedding!

Matt & Vicky, Bride & Groom, September 2016

The band were really lovely and everyone enjoyed them.

Norah, Bride, September 2016

Everyone loved the band, especially with the addition of the saxophonist. They were very professional and catered to all guests. Would definitely recommend to friends!

Emily Rathbone August 2016

Wonderful experience from start to finish! So polite, friendly and fantastic on the day! Thank you to you all! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!!!!!!!! Xxx

Georgina Randall, August 2016

Thank you for doing such a brilliant job on our wedding day. When we envisaged having a band play us out if the church you were exactly what we had hoped for!  You were all such gentlemen and so lovely and kind. Thank you also for letting me play along with you for a song, it was a real highlight of the day for my wife and for myself.

Matt, Groom, September 2016

Thank you so much for your email, and more importantly thank you for making our wedding so amazing! You made the whole day for us and really can't say enough how happy we were to have had you guys there.

Allen, Groom, September 2016

“The boys were fantastic. They went down really well and were a pleasure to have perform for us, a lovely bunch of lads.”

Host, Rabobank, July 2016

“The sets you guys played were simply fab. The number of people who came up to me and said how the band were the best they had ever heard was extraordinary, and they were completely right!! Thanks guys, really made the evening, there were a lot of happy people!!”

Sean Crowley, Groom, July 2016

For those of you who don’t like long reviews; these guys are fantastic, talented and really made our wedding. Stop your search and book them. For a slightly longer review read on, from the moment of booking the band stayed in contact and always made communication when they stated they would, this included running through running order/arrival time, sorting out the playlist and if we had any special requests for the day. Tom arrived before the rest of the band with all his equipment at the time we had agreed, he then proceeded to transport their equipment to the venue and start setting up. First of all, Tom is an extremely friendly and likeable person. He offered to help out with anything as we were running behind he performed a few errands for us and generally helped us out for which we are very grateful. On to the music, as a band they are a very talented bunch, we left the set list up to them and my goodness did they deliver a fantastic blend of current and past music which had all age groups dancing, singing or at the very least tapping their foot along! I’m no Simon Cowell but they sounded fantastic with an excellent range throughout varying songs and genres. This coupled with the fact they were able to interact and react to the various unplanned situations during their set (first dance etc) made them an excellent choice for the wedding. An added twist, was that our wedding was a surprise wedding, with our guests turning up and expecting an engagement party, the band were extremely discreet and the surprise went down a storm. We spent hours and hours searching for a band for our wedding by the end of it all their samples seem to sound the same, save yourself the hassle and book The Travelling Hands. A fantastic night had by all. THANK YOU GUYS!

Laura, Bride, June 2016

“Great bunch of lads and our guests loved the fact that they moved around the venue and mingled, playing music to suit the guests they were playing to at that time. We even got them to play our first dance live which we are so so glad we did as they nailed it. Thanks to The Travelling Hands for helping to make our wedding even more memorable.”

Ben Grice, Groom, May 2016

“Thank you all so so much for yesterday, absolutely amazing day and brilliant sets. All the guests were amazed at your music. Fantastic!”

Sophie & Max, Bride & Groom. August 2016

They were brilliant! Great fun, super music and got the guests all fired up for an awesome party! Thank you!

Emily Smith, July 2016

What a fantastic band, exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much.

Lorraine, Bride, Wedding

Feel good songs performed in such a unique way. Everybody loved it!

Bethany, MD, Corporate Event

We couldn’t have had a more exciting band. They were brilliant, provided a great mix of music & truly made it a night to remember.

Doug, Groom, Wedding

The perfect band for my 30th birthday. You were all great - thanks guys!

Pete, Host, Private Event

They were absolutely brilliant at our wedding last Saturday. They played the first dance song of our choice perfectly, and a good mix of old and new songs to get the guests dancing. The band were quick to respond to any questions before the day, and nothing was too much trouble to make sure the day was perfect. Thank you so much for making our day special!

Rachel Metcalfe, Bride, Wedding,

The Travelling Hands were absolutely fantastic, they had everyone at our wedding up and dancing and they played our first dance - which was a request song - beautifully. We've had so many lovely comments about them. Tom and the band were really relaxed and easy to work with which was a blessing in the run up to, and on the day of, our wedding. Thanks for helping to make our day so special!

Chris & Diana, Bride & Groom

We can't thank you guys enough for agreeing to make the trip to Italy to play at our wedding. Jasper and I fell in love with your music the moment we heard you play. All our guests have been saying how much they loved "the band" and it was your music that really set the mood for both the ceremony and the party!!!! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Mandy & Jasper, Bride & Groom, Wedding

The Travellers surpassed all our expectations, they were brilliant. They played a great mix of upbeat songs and had everyone dancing. They are a great group of guys and they looked like they were enjoying themselves as much as we were. Their set-up was great (lighting etc), they set their sound levels perfectly and their vocals were fantastic. We could not have asked for a better way to end the evening. They even let us play our own playlist through their equipment during their breaks.

Chris Locke-Wheaton, Groom, Wedding

Sample Set List

Song choice

The Travellers draw on their experience to know which songs work best live for different events. Once your booking is confirmed The Travellers will ask you if their plan suits (eg for a wedding - we play feel good fun tracks for all ages to help brides and grooms celebrate their big days with a big party!). We know the tracks that will go down a storm. At the event itself, The Travellers use their experience to create a slightly organic setlist so that if your guests are particularly enjoying a rock n roll number from the 50s for example, and the dancefloor is heaving - we will often play another one straight off to keep your guests on their feet. The Travellers musicians’ high level of skill and musicianship allows them to adapt setlists this way & this is one of many factors that has helped them build a solid reputation as a hard working band.
