A top tier live wedding band, party act or corporate entertainer, From the Top are not your average function band. Far from it. This highly experienced, effortlessly stylish 6-9 piece act has been enthralling corporate guests from London to Spain and wedding and party people from Yorkshire to Russia and everywhere in between for years. From the Top deliver that big band sound to you and your guests that you’ll never forget. Devoted and passionate professional musicians, From the Top will put their all into any performance whether it be an intimate London party or huge swanky wedding in deepest Wales.
Don’t take our word for it however, as this talented London based band have all graduated with honours from respected UK music conservatories and have performed at venues as diverse as the Royal Festival Hall, the Big Chill and Glastonbury. You can hear members of From the Top performing on Radio 2 and 6 music amongst other radio stations and the brass section were recently strutting their stuff on Sky’s Bring the Noise. Members continue to enjoy varied and exciting music careers so don’t be surprised if you see them performing on a TV or festival near you.
When it comes to the music offered, From the Top don’t disappoint either. They masterfully cover tunes from the ’50s right up to modern day, putting their own big band spin on tunes from Chaka Khan to Bruno Mars. With a 9-piece line up consisting of female vocals, male vocals/guitar, bass, keys/female vocals, drums, percussion, trumpet, trombone and sax all complimented by fantastic backing vocals simmering over the ensemble, From the Top can put any live wedding band to shame with their full-bodied, highly accomplished renditions of classic and contemporary tunes.

They can take requests, tailor sets to you and your guests, offer fantastic background music and now offer line ups from 3 up to 9 piece so all events, locations and budgets can be catered for. If you truly want some of the finest music at your event there really is no excuse not to book From the Top. They are the cream of the crop and really can’t be beaten by any band when it comes to stage presence, professionalism or sheer musical fun!
