A great, big, stomping indie rock band playing the best guitar-driven hits from the last three decades. An awesome live band, reminiscent of your favourite touring rock acts. A world class, concert-level live show. The London Rifles aren’t any old function band. They’re the real thing.
The London Rifles are made up of four of London’s most experienced and respected performers. Brought together through their mutual love of guitar driven rock and indie music, they formed The London Rifles and quickly established themselves as one of the very best premium live function bands in the capital. Their live show is a high-octane thrill ride through three decades of music, with something to please every one of your guest list. From classic tunes by The Kinks, to modern chart killers from the likes of James Bay and The Black Keys, this electrifying live band will have everyone up and dancing. Combine their incredible, high energy live show with their touring-standard stage production and a disco/DJ set, and your whole evening’s entertainment package is taken care of in one booking.

Two hours of fantastic live music, split into sets as required
A superb repertoire of songs, from classics to current chart

“The London Rifles were Brilliant! Thank You!!”Hannah - Corporate Event, The Corinthian, London
“Thank you for being so fantastic at our wedding! We will recommend you to all our friends!”Kayleigh - Wedding, Pangdean Old Barn, East Sussex
“This band was absolutely superb, they stole the show! Would highly recommend!”Matt - Old Billingsgate, Corporate Event, London
“Amazing band!!!! We were so impressed all the way along. Communication was excellent and every question answered. They not only performed amazingly, they looked brilliant and were so friendly to all our guests. They made our event and it would have been nothing without them. I’m reluctant to pass this on to others as we’d love to use them again but we fear we will be unable to afford them when everyone finds out how good they are. Thanks again guys!!!!!”Sophie - Private party, Oxford
“Amazing Band!! Very professional to deal with, on stage they have great energy! I highly recommend them!”Steve - Braxted Park Essex
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 covers classics from the '60s right up to 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 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 2x 60-minute live sets 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 1x 60-minute roaming acoustic set - perfect for getting the party atmosphere started at your drinks reception!
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 Slough. 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 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 in to 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.
