Our Company

The Distractions is a collective of experienced, highly talented, professional musicians, dedicated to bringing 100% live entertainment to your wedding, just the way you want it.

We combine a professional approach with the ability to really rock a party, and offer something truly fresh and different to the wedding entertainment industry.  You specify exactly the type and size of band you want and, tailored around your needs, wishes and musical tastes, we’ll bring the skills and passion to create an atmosphere you and your guests will never forget.

Your band, for your day

With over 30 professionally trained in-house musicians and experienced musical directors, The Distractions shape not only the playlist, but the entire band you want for your wedding day.  The number of band members, the instruments, a male of female vocalist – it’s your day, so your choice. We can bring everything from laid back, unobtrusive sounds for atmospheric background music during the day up to a full 14-piece band at night creating an unforgettable evening filled with legendary mash-ups and a variety of musical genre.

100% live, always

No one likes a fake, so we insist that our music is always 100% live.  We wouldn’t expect our clients and their guests to settle for anything less.  Whether we’re playing easy listening, pop, rock, garage or R&B, you can be assured there’ll be no lip syncing, sequencing or backing tracks – just incredible talent and consistently high-quality performance delivered with the utmost professionalism (and a huge dose of fun).

Slicker than your average

The Distractions take great pride in our work – we don’t drink alcohol when we’re working, we’ll liaise with the venue prior to your wedding to confirm all details of equipment, available space and any sound restrictions, we guarantee never to cancel and we’ll always arrive in plenty of time.  That said, while we take our job seriously, we certainly know how to have fun – and, more importantly, how to make sure everyone else is!  Anything but stuffy, our band members know how to work a crowd and fill a dance floor – expect medleys, mash ups, audience interaction, dance offs, and an incredible vibe.

Designed to fit – anytime, anywhere

Whether you’re getting married in the UK or abroad, inside or out, in any size or style of venue and whatever your musical tastes, The Distractions can provide the entertainment you’ve dreamed of for your perfect wedding day.  We understand that, when it comes to weddings, one size certainly doesn’t fit all so we won’t make demands or tell you what you should or shouldn’t have. It’s your day so, driven by your wishes, we’ll tailor a bespoke entertainment package that fits as well as your wedding attire.
