ABOUT US

Halfway to New York are a rare gem on the Function & Corporate circuit. Having supported huge names including Bruce Springsteen at Hyde Park and headlined Trafalgar Square as part of the Closing Paralympic Celebrations, the band caught the attention of promoters in the United States.

Since then the band have been touring across the US supporting bands like Fuel and Alien Ant Farm. Now back in the UK, the band have been inundated with requests to perform at Corporate and Private Events. Available as a high energy 4-piece band as standard, with the option of adding Female Vocals and Saxophone to the line-up, H2NY can tailor their band to suit each client’s individual requirements. They also offer a DJ service and all Sound and Lighting equipment is included.

Sam Burkey, the band’s lead vocalist, has recorded backing vocals for artists including Adele, Goldfrapp and Keith Urban, as well as singing on Movie Soundtracks such as “Pan”, “Miss Pereguine’s Home for Peculiar Children” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”.

In booking Halfway to New York for your event you are guaranteed a high energy, professional performance of the highest standard.

Booked Halfway to New York for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

We can’t thank Sam and H2NY enough for helping make our wedding day so special, extremely fun and forever memorable! All our guests commented on how insanely good the band was both vocally and at creating a fantastic atmosphere that made everyone want to get up and dance - we would wholeheartly agree! Sam made everything such a joy during the planning stages - so professional and genuinely friendly and and helpful. His solo singing during dinner and our first dance displayed just how talented he is a singer; it was perfect and exactly what we wanted. The band and DJing entertainment post dinner was just as amazing and no one wanted it to end - we would highly recommend H2NY!
