Party Band Packages

Down for the Count are a hugely popular choice for private functions, providing live music for anything from birthday parties to wedding anniversary celebrations, bat and bar mitzvahs, New Year's Eve parties and charity balls.

With a range of flexible line-ups, we can take care of all the music you need for your special event. No detail is too small and we work closely with you to make sure you get the perfect entertainment for your function.

We were recently booked by Deborah Meaden (from BBC TV's Dragon's Den) to provide live music for a private birthday party, and here's what she had to say about the band:



"Dear Mike, I know I thanked you on the night but just wanted to do so again in the cold light of day. You and your band were fantastic, not just brilliant at the music but also lovely, helpful and a total pleasure to work with.

Thank you so much and please pass my thanks on to your team.

My Mother literally had the party of her life and you were a big part of that.... you were exceptional."
