About The 101s

The 101s are a supergroup made up of some of London’s top session musicians. The line-up is female vocals, male lead vocals/guitar, bass/vocals and drums, and they can perform over 350 classic floorfillers from the 60s through to the present day - probably the largest repertoire of any pop band known to man! Their songlist spans everything from T Rex to Tinie Tempah, including R’n’B, indie rock, soul, rock’n’roll - in fact just about any style or genre with male or female vocals that has been in the charts in the last 50 years.

Individually band members have worked with The Feeling, Jamelia, Gabriella Cilmi, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Sandie Shaw and Will Young, and appeared at The Hammersmith Apollo, Birmingham NEC and Cardiff International Arena. They have performed in France, Tunisia, Cyprus, Holland, Italy, Germany, USA, Spain, Malta, Finland and Sardinia. They have also performed in tribute bands celebrating the music of Queen, Abba, The Beatles, Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Sting, George Michael, Kylie Minogue, Green Day, Scissor Sisters, Bee Gees, Supertramp, James Bond, Glam Rock, and more. Band members have also written music for TV programmes including Neighbours, Home and Away, and Family Affairs and even been invited to Hollywood to record an album!

With their superior musicianship and extensive repertoire this is a great band for a wedding or party of any kind. Friendly and charismatic, the band members have performed at many top function venues and can be relied upon to keep guests of all ages on the dance floor.

The band can provide background music or bespoke mixes pre-done by a professional DJ for an additional fee. They also have their own high quality PA and lighting system. They strongly recommend a performance made up of two one-hour sets although this can be extended for an additional fee. 

Price from: £1,875

The 101s are London-based. See Pricing for details of travel costs, etc.

Laura Ohrman - wedding reception - Buckinghamshire - June 2015

"We booked The 101s to play at our wedding after enjoying their performance at a friend's wedding and they were absolutely fantastic once again. The dance floor filled up the moment they launched into You've Got the Love and it didn't empty until they finished their set. We think they're brilliant and highly recommend them for any couple who want to create a brilliant party atmosphere."
Annabel Harrison - wedding reception - Gloucestershire - May 2015

Beth Allingham - wedding reception - Suffolk - November 2014

"The Lee Flower Show Dance sounds like it might be a rather sedate affair - but far from it! The 101s had the dance floor packed all evening and were a great hit will the 250 guests at our annual village "Bop of the Year". The 101s did not disappoint! On a personal level, they were a delight to deal with. Thank you so much."
Pippa Hart - The Lee Flower Show - Buckinghamshire - July 2014

Phillip Topham - wedding reception - Welwyn, Hertfordshire - December 2013

"The 101s created a wonderful atmosphere for the evening part of our wedding celebrations. We loved their music, our guests loved their music! Their DJ service was also outstanding! They even managed to include some Dutch songs (Groom is Dutch) and that was much appreciated. Instead of a first dance, we did a first song and the band was so kind to let us use their microphones. We would highly recommend them to anyone!"
Hannah Baker - wedding reception - West Sussex - August 2013

Alec Stevens - wedding reception - Wiltshire - July 2013

"The band kindly covered our first dance song which was not on their playlist. We had loads of compliments about how great they were. We were really happy with the 101s and had a great evening."
Samantha Rumens - wedding reception - East Sussex - May 2013

"The act's performance was excellent. They were playing to rather a small crowd and my biggest fear was an empty dance floor but that never happened for a second! The act wowed everyone of our guests, young and old, from the moment they started to perform. Their material was spot on, they knew exactly what songs to perform that would appeal to all our guests and the dance floor was never empty. We also appreciated the DJ sets, I have never known that to be done before and that went down a storm also. During their break times the band members were happy to chat with our guests which was lovely of them. The act were the highlight of the evening and the best decision we made."
Nicola Rainford - wedding reception - Surrey - May 2013

"Having the 101s play at our wedding was like a dream come true. From the moment they started the dance floor was packed with happy guests. They have helped create some magical memories of our special day and would recommend them without reservation for any future event. All our thanks!"
Lee Miller - wedding reception - Hampshire - March 2013

The band was full of life and enthusiasm, with a huge amount of talent. The guests are all still talking about the 101s and how great they were."
Briony Britten - wedding reception - Bristol - August 2012

Stephanie Bishop - wedding reception - Essex - June 2012

Emma Willoughby - wedding reception - Herefordshire - December 2011

"Just to say a huge thank you - you guys were superb- as the incessant '1 more song' probably told you... Our first dance was wonderful, it was a bit of an ask, and you guys nailed it! My husband's parents said they'd never seen a wedding dance floor so packed from start to finish and everyone commented after on how good the band was - perfect!"
Jacqueline Caley - wedding reception - Dorset - December 2011

"The band were amazing! They turned up early and were extremely friendly. The sound was brilliant, even in a small venue. The music was adapted to the guests and they were happy to take requests on the night. We are looking for an excuse to hire them again!"
Charlotte Laverick - wedding reception - Surrey - September 2011

"The 101's were talented, friendly and great fun. They played a good range of more modern tracks - exactly the kind of music we love (not just the same old, same old seventies stuff)! We would have them again in a heartbeat. Thanks"
Helen Parkinson - 10th Wedding Anniversary - Hertfordshire - September 2011

"Without doubt the 101's exceeded our expectations. From the moment they started to the last song the dance floor was full. Weeks later we still have people saying how great the band was. They are professional and very accommodating, the timings on the day slipped a bit and they made it very clear that we should relax and let them take care of business. Which we did. Thank you so much for a really great night."
Richard Smith - wedding reception - Hertfordshire - August 2011

"The 101s were excellent, they kept the dance floor full right to the end and sounded amazing throughout. So many guests commented on how good they were. Thank you for helping to make our day so special."
