The Saloon Star Band

“They can keep the world and his wife on the dance floor like no other.

With their uncanny intuition about what music is needed at any given moment – from rock n’roll, trad/gypsy jazz, swing, country, blues, funk, bluegrass, Scottish & Irish jigs, reggae, ska, Cuban, Latin, rock & pop – they never fail to lift the mood of a party to a higher plane.”

“It’s not so surprising: they are all consummate pros and as musicians, dazzlingly skilled.

For wedding parties for instance they are a sure fire winner because they appeal across the board but that doesn’t mean to say that they are in any way Middle of the Road. They are not. They are the coolest band in the business.

    • The band were tremendous – great musicians with a great feel for what would work when. Our friends loved the music and the dancing — and could have gone on for a long time more!

    • As you performed you know – you MADE my party – I loved the whole evening from start to finish (too soon!) and with all the thoughts I’d had about what I wanted for a long time – it was exactly as I wished – a huge thankyou to you and all the wonderful band – you made it the best [night] of fun and everyone has endlessly said the same – i loved the infectious enthusiasm of you all

    • I had a specific idea as to the styles of music I wanted at my 50th birthday party. Saloon star are extremely competent, versatile players and were able to tailor their set accordingly. They didn’t put a foot wrong. The whole evening was, I think, a huge success and they played a key part.
