The Duke's Biography

We are The Dukes, a four piece rock and pop function band based near London.

As a band, we have a significant amount of experience under our belts... we've done Radio 1 and XFM sessions, recording in some of London’s top recording studios, including Abbey Road, and toured with some awesome bands such as Keane, Damien Rice, The Kaiser Chiefs and Biffy Clyro.  We have also performed at a huge number of corporate events, private parties and weddings over the past few years with a great track record for filling dance floors and entertaining audiences across the length and breadth of the UK and further afield including touring the USA and Europe, and rocking out crowds at South By South West in Texas and Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, UK!

Our party repertoire includes classic songs from the 50’s through to the present day with tracks by artists such as Day Tripper by The Beatles, Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones, Stand By Me by Ben E King and modern day classics like Price Tag by Jessie Jay, Sex On fire by Kings Of Leon, Mr Brightside by The Killers and Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis – There’s deffinatley something for everyone!  Check out the Set List page for our full repertoire and feel free to request anything if it’s not already on there… Given enough notice, we will consider it!

At your event, we will dress to suit your needs be it formal dress or more casual clothes if it suits you better!  Just let us know what you need.

We usually play for 2 hours with live sets split into 2 x 60 minutes, 3 x 40 minutes or 2 x 45 minutes if time is tight on the night.  We can also provide music between sets at no extra cost to make sure there’s no lull in the party atmosphere when the band aren’t playing. To see our full event run through see What We Do.

We need about 5 x 4 metres usually in stage space, but we can accommodate whatever space is available at your venue, and have been known to squeeze into much smaller areas!!
We can also accommodate volume restrictions, should your venue have to impose any, by bringing an electronic drum kit with us on the night.

We are a totally self-contained party band London with a high quality PA sound system and lights.  For all you audio geeks, we use an RCF 3000 watt PA system suitable for up to 300 guests.
