Did you spend your teens blasting Blink 182 and Green Day way too loud from your portable CD player? Couldn’t get enough of Wheatus, Counting Crows or The Spin Doctors? Then One Big Reunion is the perfect band for you. These boys bring all the fun, energy and hard hitting guitars that defined nineties and noughties rock to your big event in an incredible live show that will leave you and your guests absolutely breathless.
Based in Surrey, One Big Reunion is made up of four incredibly talented young professional musicians, all of whom were brought together by their love of the guitar driven sound that became synonymous with rock music throughout the 90s and early 2000’s. Their live set is an uncontrollable joy ride careening straight through the very best songs from that well-loved era. There’s something for everyone in a setlist that covers an incredible array of tunes; from the sweaty, floor filling chorus’ of Feeder to the jangling pop magic of The New Radicals, there’ll be a tune to get all your guests up and dancing. Combine this incredible repertoire with concert-level stage production and a disco/DJ set provided as standard, and your whole night’s entertainment will be sorted in one booking.
But that’s not all. One Big Reunion also offer a great acoustic, live-lounge style add on - perfect for drinks receptions and more laid back affairs. Their distinctive acoustic setlist of subtle 90’s classics makes them a totally unique afternoon booking; one that’s sure to wow your guests and cultivate the perfect party atmosphere.

“The band were amazing from start to finish!!”Luke - Wedding, The West Mill, Darley Abbey
“One Big Reunion were absolutely incredible. They were exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Big sounds, created an awesome atmosphere from the start, super talented and incredibly professional. They absolutely nailed the first dance song, and after that they kicked the party off and didn't slow down until.
Everyone has commented since how great they were, and we couldn't agree more.
Thank you so so much. To the admin guys; Sam and Erin, who were always on hand to help, and responded straight away to any queries. And most importantly the band, super-nice guys, incredibly talented and very professional.”Rich Broughton - Wedding, Dorfold Hall, Cheshire
“The band were great and their performance for our first dance was everything we wanted.”David Price - Wedding, Morden Hall, Greater London
“One Big Reunion were incredible from start to finish. Not only was the performance absolutely fantastic, they were really friendly and approachable guys and we really felt they were enjoying it as much as we were. We are absolutely delighted that they were able to play our wedding, they made the night a truly special one for us and our guests.”Mike Darley - Wedding, Sudbury House Hotel, Faringdon
“Best wedding band we could have asked for. They absolutely nailed it! Thank you so much guys! You rock!”Josh Johnson - Shillingstone House, Blandford Forum
“The band were phenomenal. I had so many people come up to me to say how good they were and how great the music was. They really got the crowd going and I couldn’t have asked for more from them. Absolutely top work.”Maria Orchard - Wedding, West Heath Centre, Kent
“One Big Reunion were absolutely great on our wedding day. The acoustic set was amazing for the reception drinks, many guests commented on how good they were. The evening set was really fun and everyone loved it. They were every bit as good as their demo videos showed. They were flexible on timings which was really helpful as we needed to adjust things slightly on the day. They didn't require anything from us, they spoke with the venue and sorted almost everything themselves. The band members were all friendly and I'd like to say a big thank you to all of them!”Mark Goffin - Wedding, Sheepdrove Organic Farm, Hungerford
“We booked OBR for our wedding day and they were amazing! They really read the crowd well and both sets had people dancing all the way through. Even our parents who we’ve never seen dance before!! The band were lovely and chatty after the show too. Would highly recommend and will book again if we have any big events in the future.”Sophie Putnam - Wedding, Westcott Barton, Barnstaple
“From the time of enquiry until the wedding day itself, both the service and help from both tailored entertainment and the band themselves have been nothing short of perfect. The band were able to learn and play a song for me to perform with them on the day, in place of them performing a first dance song which we wanted to play ourselves, which was great. The band arrived earlier than expected and our meal and speeches finished later than we had hoped, so the band started setting up an hour later than we had hoped but the band were so patient and accommodating and managed to turn around their 2 hour set up to just an hour and half, which meant we were only half an hour behind schedule. I then asked if the band could have a half an hour interlude instead of an hour, they more than happily agreed and so we were back on track with the timings of the day we had hoped for. In terms of performance, the band's repertoire was excellent, absolutely everyone commented on how good and unusually un-wedding like the band were, which believe me is one of the greatest compliments we can give. Several guests took the bands details after the wedding and most guests never left the dance floor from the moment they started until the moment they finished. I could not recommend these guys more, and I want to say a massive thank you to all of the band and everyone who helped along the way at tailored entertainment. We hope to see them again soon at one of more of our friend's weddings!”Stuart Clarke - Wedding, Pimhill Farm, Shrewsbury
“Perfection! Our event wouldn’t have been the same without One Big Reunion”Christopher - Corporate Event
“One Big Reunion were our favourite band from the moment we saw their taster video - and sure enough they were even better on the night! They were professional and polite and absolutely smashed the live sets - enjoyed every second of it. Would highly recommend for any event!”Lucy - Wedding, Hampshire
“Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The Tailored Entertainment staff made all the organising side super easy so that there were no last minute panics on the day. All of our guests commented (and still comment!) on how amazing One Big Reunion were - very slick and super energetic, with all our favourite song choices.”Jane and Tony - Private Party, Farnham
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! We are a professional function band 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 the best of 90s pop punk and 00s festival headliners - there'll be something to get everyone on the dance floor. We also provide a bespoke disco service before and after live sets, so you can be sure to hear all of your favourites on the night.
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 or 3 x 40-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 acoustic live lounge-style duo set as an add-on, we find it works perfectly during drinks or dinner. Check out 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 Farnham. 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 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.
