Did you spend your teens and your twenties dancing to rowdy, raucous, indie tunes in dingy nightclubs? Want to bring a bit of that electrifying atmosphere back for your big night? Well Super Hands are the act for you. These boys bring their energy, charisma, and unrivalled experience to your wedding or function with an evening of peerless indie rock classics.
Based in Hampshire, this remarkable four piece band have been performing together for over a decade, and that collective musical understanding is evident from the first minute of their stunning live show. They bring the kind of polished, inch perfect performance that can only be cultivated through years of experience playing together. No one does big, banging indie music like Super Hands - from The Killers to the The Kaisers and everything in between, they stand head and shoulders above the competition for dance floor packing, singalong indie favourites. With two hours of live music, concert level stage production and a disco/DJ set provided as standard, you’ll be left with nothing to do but dance like crazy with all of your guests.
As standard Super Hands provide:
Two hours of fantastic live music, split into sets as required
A superb repertoire of classic indie pop songs
Concert level PA & stage lighting
Pre-recorded music between sets
PAT Tested equipment and Public Liability Insurance
First dance or special request performed live
Super Hands are based in Hampshire and are available for weddings, parties and corporate events across the U.K and Europe.

“The band were superb. Very professional in their communications and set up. And their performance was spot on, with everyone dancing through the second set. Thanks so much for a great night.”James - Party, The Ivy House, London
“The band were absolutely fantastic. Really friendly guys, really discreet in their setup and sound check.
They had absolutely everyone up on their feet dancing and the atmosphere was incredible.”Holly Keeble - Wedding, Tanner Warehouse, London
“We loved having Superhands at our event. Everyone was up dancing as soon as they played their first song. They adapted their set to the demographic on the dance floor (or at least it seemed this way) and there really was something for everyone. They were a pleasure to work with and very low maintenance. In fact they impressed so much that one of our event sponsors has booked them for her wedding! Thanks Superhands!”Chloe Atkins - Charity Event, Hilton at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton
“You guys were great - loved the tunes!”Amy Paige - Wedding, Millbridge Court, Farnham
“Brilliant band. Music was varied and had some amazing classics to sing along to!”Mark Butler - Birthday party, Hampshire
“Absolutely brilliant, they did our wedding and were perfect!! So many positive comments from our guests. Couldn’t recommend them enough.”Iain Beaton - Wedding, Berkshire
“After listening and dancing all night to Super Hands at our friend's wedding, they were the first thing I booked for our own wedding! I planned our date around their availability and it was the best decision I’d made. We have had so many comments about how great they were, such talent and we look forward to reminiscing our wedding at all their future events. Can’t thank you all enough....you truly were amazing in every sense!”Delyth Moore, Wedding, West Sussex
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for your brilliant performance at our wedding. Your music was amazing and we’ve had many people ask for your details and make really positive comments about both the live sets and the playlists. Your relaxed approach to timings was perfect as you simply went with the flow and pitched it perfectly. I hope you managed to eat and drink and I’m sorry that I didn’t get to say goodnight. It was an amazing night and meeting you was a pleasure. I’m trying to find an excuse for another party and will definitely be booking you again! Very best wishes”Brian & Sue Comley - Wedding, Ibthorpe Tower, Hampshire
“I want to just say a big thank you to Super Hands for making our big day so special. Everyone commented on how brilliant the band were and loved the different styles of music they played from the acoustic set outside in the afternoon to the full on party hits in the evening!”Rosie Miller - Wedding, Wasing Park, Reading
“I know from experience that it’s difficult to choose a band for an important occasion, particularly one you don't get to see in person. But not only are Super hands superb in the promotional video but they sounded exactly the same (if not better!) in real life!!”Emma Rose - Corporate Event, Marriott Hotel, Portsmouth
“Words are not enough to express how wonderful Super Hands were at our wedding reception last Saturday! The band were amazing musicians, so friendly & professional and from the first dance (please thank them again for learning it!) to the last encore they had everyone up on the dance floor!”Joseph Kettle - Wedding, Southend Barns, Chichester
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 dancefloor fillers from 60s – current chart, 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? Up to 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 live lounge-style acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or during dinner. You can see a sample of this set here.
What is the difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra? The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.
If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.
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 Portsmouth. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour 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 £25 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.
