About The Bet Lynch Experience
Followers of Coronation Street will know Bet Lynch as the man-hungry barmaid at The Rovers Return. You may ask what this has to do with a party band playing the best of 60s to 2000s hits. The answer is absolutely nothing, other than demonstrating the band's rather wacky approach to what they do! But don't worry, although The Bet Lynch Experience's avowed aim is to put the "fun" into "function band" their musicianship is something they take extremely seriously. The four band members between them have notched up an enviable list of credits including the recording of two top 40 dance hits; record deals with Sony, Virgin and London Records; touring with artists The Fun Living Criminals and Deftones; and record appearances and film soundtracks with various artists including Sam Brown, Little Angels and Timothy Spall.
Much of the band's unique sound comes from the versatility of female lead vocalist Doz, who adds violin, saxophone, acoustic guitar and Irish whistle to her vocal contributions. The other three band members are male lead vocals/guitar/mandolin, bass/vocals and drums. The band play a wide range of music incorporating many styles including rock, disco, ska, reggae, soul, funk, Irish jigs and even Zorba The Greek! Ideal for weddings and parties of all kinds.
These musicians have performed throughout the UK at top venues including The Hammersmith Odeon, The Town and Country Club, The Café Royal, The Dorchester, Claridges, The Savoy, The Wembley Conference Centre, The Eden Project, as well as at many corporate functions and wedding receptions throughout England.
The band normally play for two hours which can be split into two one-hour or three 40-minute sets plus encore. They provide their own PA, lights and can provide background music on CD, if required. The Bet Lynch Experience also perform as a five-piece band adding a keyboard player where requested. Our quoted price is for a four-piece band.
