Roaming with style
Love this style of performance! The band will walk to different tables or groups of guests and play numerous mini sets for them to enjoy. They tailor the songs they play for each specific group and ensure that everybody gets a personal performance of songs they will love to singalong to. This is the perfect choice if you want to show your guests a performance with a twist and it works well for any feel good event be it a wedding, party, corporate event both indoors and outdoors.
The Roaming Five perform at all sorts of events and can play and dress accordingly. With up to five instruments playing together, its very easy for the band to play a more relaxed set or a more lively one, so no matter whether you’re hosting a black tie dinner or an informal birthday party, you can be confident that the band will sound and look the part for your party.
Repertoire The Roaming Five know the tracks that will go down a storm. At the event itself, they will use their experience to create a slightly organic setlist, so that if your guests are particularly enjoying a rock n roll number from the 50s and the dancefloor is heaving – they will often play another one straight after to keep your guests in full dance flow. The Roaming Five’ high level of musicality allows them to adapt setlists which is one of many factors that has helped them build a solid reputation as a hard working, unique band.

"We wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding on 4th May at Babington House - you guys were amazing! Without doubt, choosing you to play at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. You delighted our guests with happy, feel good music perfect for the occasion. Starting with “Higher and Higher” in the church, you personally gave us a memory that will last a lifetime. And pretty much every guest we talked to after the wedding- every one of them - mentioned the roaming five as being one of the stand out moments. Thank you so much for adding such a great atmosphere to our wedding reception."
Matthew Henderson, July 2017
Damien: "thank you' for what was a brilliant end to the perfect day at Caswell for Becky and me. You guys were perfect from the first dance until the last and the fact that you indulged our rendition of Mr Brightside made it extra special for us."
Becky: "Thank you so much for an excellent performance at our wedding. There were people on the dance floor the entire time and the Fresh Prince mash-up went down a storm! You guys were great. The band were absolutely amazing and such positive feedback from all our guests."
Damien & Becky, Wedding 2017
“You were fantastic! Real entertainment at it's best.”
Alison, UK Challenge, April 2017
"Thank you for helping to make our wedding so memorable. You guys were just perfect! SO many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the band - so thank you again for being so easy-going, organised, communicative, friendly and accommodating."
Emedion, Bride, 2017
In summary from start to finish the band were exceptional. On the day they arrived before time, and integrated brilliantly into the vibe we were trying to create for the wedding. In terms of sound, songs played and getting everyone on the dance floor we couldn't have asked for better. Tom, and the band, thank you for helping to make our woodland wedding an amazing day, and we would quite happily recommend them many times over to anyone who needs a band for their wedding!
Matt & Vicky, Wedding September 2016
