This is our largest full band line-up which is led by four talented vocalists (two male vocalists and two female vocalists). The rhythm section is made up of a drummer, bassist, guitarist, and keys player. We also have our brass section in this line up which consists of a saxophone & trumpet. To add a little something extra we have also included our live DJ and our percussionist to really give you the ‘showband’ feel. There is an option to add in our dancers to this line up if you would really like to splash out and create a show stopping performance. This line up offers two 60 minute sets of music with more sets available on request. Like all of our acts this line up is also fully customisable so if there is something specific you would like, please do ask and we will make this happen for you.

When you book The Phat Cats you don’t just book a band, you book a company who can offer you that ‘personal touch’ to help create and bring your event to life. Charlotte & Matt (our Director & Musical Director), will work closely with you to build your perfect set list. We can offer advice and inspiration when it comes to thinking about your set list, and make sure that none of your guests will ever want to leave the dance floor. We can compose a bespoke arrangement for your first dance, create a mash up of your favourite songs and even provide music for different parts of your day, whether thats the Drinks Reception, Ceremony Music or an Awards Ceremony.
Our technical crew will usually arrive on site as early as possible to set up the PA System and Lighting Rig. The musicians will then arrive shortly afterwards to set up their instruments and sound check. It’s important for us to arrive and sound check before any of your guests arrive in order to give you the best sound quality in your event space. Charlotte will organise this with you when speaking to you about the finer details of your event. The technical team will stay on site for the duration of your event, where the will continue to manage the sound. All of our music will stop at midnight however, a later finish can also be requested
