“We couldn't have picked a better band to perform at our wedding reception - the Fusion Dukes were amazing from start to finish. Brad's version of our first dance was beautiful and made it very special. Every song was fantastic; with such a wide range of songs from every genre, there really was something for everyone. It was great to see local talent doing so well and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. Thank you Fusion Dukes!”Keeley Highes -Wedding, Whitehaven Golf Club, Whitehaven
“5/5 - We just wanted to say thank you so so much for performing at our wedding! We truly had the most amazing day and night and had lots of comments on how great the band were! You performed our first dance song beautifully and everything was just perfect.”Amy & Sam - Wedding, Tithe Barn, Skipton
“5/5 - Words will not do our feelings or the bands performance justice. We will never be able to express our thanks enough to you all for the absolutely wonderful job you did. The band were flawless and massively exceeded our expectations. We had reservations as we had only seen the preview videos online and we were worried they may not sound as good live but they were even better. Personally, apart from marrying my wife, The Fusion Dukes were my favrouite part of the day and really did make the day so special. We only wish we could express to them just how fantastic they were. We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts from contributing to our wedding in the most perfect way and we do hope we run in to you again in the future. (For an anniversary party perhaps) To the band, we hope to see you play again soon if you are ever back in Yorkshire!”Elliott - Wedding, Hornington Manor, York

“The Fusion Dukes were phenomenal for our wedding day. They had everyone on the dance floor - young and old - and their performance was amazing musically, visually and with their interaction with the crowd. Great variety to the repertoire, we had loads of guests commentating on how good the band were, and a couple saying they would try booking them for their own wedding next year. We had to shift timings slightly on the day and the band were very accommodating. Overall, would highly recommend.”Tom - Wedding, Middleton Lodge
“The band were fantastic, the day was running behind schedule but they were happy to set up later than planned and we reorganised the timing of their break between sets to suit the schedule on the day.

“5/5 - Can't fault a thing - they were fantastic and we'll definitely be using you both again!”Isabel - Wedding, Bentham Golf Club, Lancaster
“5/5 - The Fusion Dukes were perfect, better live than even their videos which had me singing and dancing in my kitchen. My husband and I were so surprised that the band knew our first dance song and were able to sing it in a way which allowed everyone to dance to it. It meant so much to us. At one point in the evening I went to the bar, there was not one person there, all 80 of our guests were on the dance floor! We also had guests of all ages and the band found a perfect balance of songs for everyone. I had so many positive comments about The Fusion Dukes and questions about where I found them (recommended suppliers list) I would definitely use them for other functions. Thank you so much!”Amber - Wedding, Askham Hall, Cumbria

Brad was so easy to get on with and ran through the evenings plans with us. The band put on an incredible performance and we have had so much amazing feedback from guests. There wasn’t one song that the dance floor was empty for! The band and tailored entertainment will be highly recommended by myself and my new husband!”Kirsty - The Bridge Hotel and Spa, Wetherby

“Hi Phoebe, We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day last weekend. The band were amazing both on and off stage. I spoke to them a few times through the night to make sure they had food and drink etc. They were all very kind. Most of our guests commented on how good the band were. It’s a shame we didn’t have a bigger dance floor as it was pretty full all night when the band were playing. The first dance song, they performed, was awesome. It’s just a shame our dance didn’t do it justice ????. We are both very pleased we chose the Fusion Dukes are very grateful they were available. Thanks for all your help.”Paul & Emma - Wedding, The Lingholm Estate, Cumbria

I'm not great with IT, so my online form was filled in for me. There were many emails to double check all was correct and what we wanted was covered. On the night the band were amazing.

“I have nothing but praise for the Fusion Dukes, they were brilliant. Massively personable band, turned up early so as to avoid any risk of being late (great!), sound was perfect, lights and smoke machine a real hit, massively talented musicians and singers, had learned a perfect version of the song for our first dance, transitions between songs were utterly flawless as though mixed by a DJ in real time. They really connected with the audience and turned the whole affair into a ‘gig’ rather than just background music to dance to. We were massively impressed, you’ve got a great band on your hands.”George Hammerton, Wedding, Rhosygilwen Mansion, Cilgerran
“Now we're back from our honeymoon, I just wanted to pop by the page to say a huge thanks the to the Fusion Dukes for your performance at our wedding on 31st July. You guys really rocked the place, so many of our guests were dying to know who the band were as they were all so impressed. A highly professional, extremely talented and lovely group of people. You really made our night special. And i'm notoriously hard to please given that I play in a function band myself, Ha!!! Thanks again guys! I would 100% recommend you to anyone looking for a band for their function and I would definitely book you again!”Gareth & Lynsey Doran - Wedding
“Jack and I just wanted to drop you a quick line with our feedback and for you to pass on our thanks to the Fusion Dukes for a fantastic performance at our wedding on 2 July. Almost every guest, and even our photographers and the pub managers said how amazing the band was! Their performance was perfect in terms of the sound we wanted and the tracks they played (you will remember we were happy to go with their recommended playlist) and the dance floor was never empty. We're only sorry we had to stop them at 11pm, due to the pub's licensing. We would be more than happy to recommend them or write a further testimonial, if that would be helpful to the band. In the meantime, we wish them great success and hope we'll see them perform again in the future. Many thanks”Jack and Vanessa - Wedding, Surrey

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?
90 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 acoustic band 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 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Cumbria. 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?
Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two 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 is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks?
Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
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.
