ABOUT US

We are Contraband - a long established 5 piece covers band working throughout Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex and London. We have a varied set list consisting of pop and rock songs from a range of artists from different genres from Bon Jovi to Lily Allen and Bruno Mars to The Killers and Fleetwood Mac. Our set is so varied that there's always something for everybody!

The current line up of Contraband really is our very best to date and our popularity continues to grow. The line up consists of female singer, guitars, keyboards, bass and drums.  We are also accompanied by our sound engineer at every event.

Contraband goes back over 30 years and we play at many types of gigs from pubs and clubs to private functions such as weddings and birthday parties.

For private events we are always open to suggestions to learn special songs. Any hire includes us supplying our professional PA system where required with your choice of music played through it during intervals. We also have our own lighting. All equipment is of a very high standard and for this we must thank Sennheiser, Fender, Mesa Boogie, Markbass, Gb Guitars, Sonor drums, Roland, Shure, Allen & Heath and Mackie to name but a few.

I have seen Contraband live many times and didn't hesitate to book them for my wedding in June this year. They kept the wedding party and guests on the dancefloor all night singing along with them. The variation in song choice is brilliant and keeps everyone of all ages entertained throughout the whole evening. Everybody sang their praises for what was a fantastic night to end our fantastic wedding day.
