“Hire Bands” (Used 1 time)

There are over 500 bands available to hire from in and around Brighton. Considering that Brighton is known as the European version of San Francisco, you can imagine why there’s so many, and just what kind of diversity that 500+ strong list represents. If you’re looking to work with an artist for your recording session or live event, one of the easiest ways to narrow down the thousands of performers from the area is to search a free-to-use trading platform like Warble Entertainment , which lets individual artists, groups (and even non-musical acts like fire-spinners) list their sweet skills at their going rate, along with some evidence of what they can do.
It certainly seems a lot more streamlined than the traditional music booking process of meeting friends-of-friends of going through agents (who represent just a few artists and take part of their hard-earned dues), but what kind of Brighton bands can you really find on the platform?
You’ll find rock and Britpop cover bands like The Great Escape or The Works, both with years of experience playing at parties, specializing in floor-filling chart toppers. Then there’s personality-driven trios of vocal gospel singers or harmonisers like The Dotty Dolls. You can hire a dozen different jazz bands, or Beatles tribute band the Brighton Beatles with their convincing sound and very committed haircuts.
What if you’re after something at the more outlandish end of the spectrum? You can hire the absurdist music group Musical Santas for a Christmas party (they really do seem to specialise in classic Christmas tunes – it’s not just a visual theme), classic/rock ballad gothic songstresses Luna who will – no kidding! – sing you an incredible Italian version of Chris Isaac’s Wicked Game. Or, is it in Latin? You could even hire your very own beat-boxing vocal group in the form of Brighton’s Bloxed Beatbox. You can even hire this crazy guy to show up to your event with his Future Harp. I kind of think it must just be like air guitar, except the weirdest air-instrument you’ve ever seen. But even doubting that it’s real, you can’t take your eyes off it.
Most performers offer to bring all their own top-of-the-line equipment, so you can get around the costs of a PA. You can hire more than just live music, too. There’s a Sussex-travelling fire juggler and Brighton-based
