“We were so impressed with The Revival! They performed an amazing set for our wedding with a mixture of songs to cater for everyone’s tastes.

We would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone else looking for an excellent evening of entertainment.”Jon Spears - Wedding, Windsor Hotel, Worthing
“The band were great, and had everyone dancing. Everyone loved them!”Annabelle Mitchell & Andrew Fowkes - Wedding, Mid Sussex Golf Club, Ditchling
“If this review was based on marks out of 10, we would be giving Revival 20!
They immediately got the feel for the audience and the music that they would enjoy. Everyone was up from the start dancing and didn’t stop until the end of the night !
Our wedding day and evening reception was really special and that was in no small way due to the part Revival ‘played’ in it. Fantastic!”Christopher Gledhill - Wedding, Hilton Brighton Metropole, Brighton
“The Revival are an absolutely wonderful band!! They played at our wedding and kept the dance floor full the entire night! We’ve had so many positive comments from guests and I really cannot fault anything about them. I’m so pleased we chose The Revival to play - I couldn’t have wished for a better group. Thank you so much, especially for learning our first dance song and performing it perfectly!
The admin before the wedding was also so easy and the staff are so accommodating - arranging for extra time to be played and very quickly advising me of and transferring back to me an overpayment I made by mistake!!”Louise & Dan - Wedding, Wiston House

“The band were amazing, we've had so many compliments about them and they read the crowd really well, I could see that they changed the set list based on how people were reacting which was great. Particular call out to the acoustic guitarist; they played a request for me to sing with him instead of having a first dance and he was amazing, kept really great communication throughout the song, followed me so well and I felt so comfortable singing with them. That really made the wedding for me and I'm so very grateful to the band for making such a special memory for me! You guys are awesome.”Anna & Josh Redman - Wedding, Shebourne Castle, Sherbourne

“Thanks to The Revival for a great evening's entertainment, last Saturday night. You provided my customers (and your following) with a rockin' good night. Your repertoire creates a fun, gutsy atmosphere for young people (18+) and up to my decrepit age! I am hoping we can arrange another date, so that they will be back for a repeat performance.”Trace Barnes - Pub Event, Brighton
“From the second we contacted The Revival they were professional, attentive and couldn't have gone to any greater lengths to make sure our wedding evening party went off with a bang. From catering a set list to our requirements (which would get all ages and tastes up and dancing) to learning one of our favourite songs as a special request, the lads were enthusiastic and accommodating. They arrived promptly and had no problem setting up all of their equipment efficiently without fuss, in fact we hardly knew they were there until their sound-check. I can't thank The Revival enough for how wonderful they made our evening, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music, especially us, it was perfect.”Ali and Jo - Wedding Party, Seaford
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up? Approximately 60 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for? We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception? Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute live lounge-style trio set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on our 5-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Brighton. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you perform our first dance? Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require? We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets are fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £15 pp rider buyout.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
