Since their formation, e2 have become synonymous with the highest quality entertainment. These are true “session” musicians whose sheer professionalism shines through and ensures your event will live long in the minds of your guests. Dynamic, charismatic and highly entertaining, this band is guaranteed to make any party come to life.
The band’s wide repertoire includes the irrepressible grooves of 70s funk and disco classics, always a favourite party flavour. Add to this Motown smashes from the 60s, the best of 80s and 90s pop, right through to current hits, and your guests will dance all night long. Our quoted price is for the band’s usual six-piece line-up - as featured on their demo tracks - of keyboards, bass, drums, guitar and two female vocalists. If you want something extra special, you can also augment the regular band with the stunning e2 brass section, an embellishment that will electrify any audience.
All the band members are used to performing with high profile artists, appearing live and in the studio as well as on TV and on radio. Among the major names they have worked with are: Elvis Costello, Sting, Duran Duran, Edwin Starr, Chris Rea, Phil Collins, Spandau Ballet, Gary Barlow, Cliff Richard, Jamie Cullum, Suzi Quatro, Jimmy Nail, Sharon Shannon and Toby Smith (Jamiroquai). The band’s corporate clients have included IBM, EMI, Pfizer, Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds TSB, British Airways, Lee Cooper and UNICEF, and the band have performed at private functions and weddings at leading venues including Claridges, The Café Royal, Hampton Court Palace, Brocket Hall and the Park Lane Hilton.
