ABOUT US

“Ticket 2 Ride” is a four piece party and function band based in Colchester, Essex.

Drawing on a large variety of influences, we play an engaging variety of hits from the 50’s to the present day, a variety styles from classic Rock and Soul, through to modern pop.

The band consists of four musicians who have many years’ combined experience playing live music for a variety of covers and original groups.

Pulling from this experience we have developed a large repertoire of great tunes, and can also adapt our sets to specific events and venues. Our audience is our number one priority.

In early February 2018 we are looking forward to producing our first professional video shoot, to be used as a great way for everyone to see what we can do.

We continue to build in 2018 developing opportunities with more venues, corporate clients, and private functions.

5.0  

My twin sister and I organised for Ticket 2 Ride to play at my parents surprise Ruby Wedding Anniversary party last night! We hadn’t heard them before but they were brilliant! Such a great selection of songs, everyone was up dancing! Thank you so much guys for helping us make our parents celebration even more special! Will definitely be in touch again if we do another big bash.
