ABOUT US

The Alchemists maintain a vintage style, a vinyl sound, they have a repertoire of popular songs and add their own unique twists, they're truly unforgettable.

Take swing, latin, jazz, soul, funk, infuse it with contemporary pop, add some spices, flavour and you might have a good idea.

Think of your favourites like Coldplay, Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk, Gloria Gaynor played in entirely new creative ways that want to make you dance. They take the songs you know and love, they 'vinylise' them.

The Alchemists are comprised of amazingly talented players from the North-West of the UK.

We are all about having fun, creating a great show!

Really thrilled with the Alchemists. They performed for a corporate event where we wanted relaxed (but upbeat) music played at a volume that created a great atmosphere whilst enabling our guests to talk and they managed this perfectly. all really pleasant, personal and professional. I would definitely recommend and rebook.

The Alchemists are fantastic, not only do they sound great but they are super friendly and flexible which made for a fantastic day filled with wonderful music and a great atmosphere. On the lead up to the wedding Ryan was on hand to answer any questions and rang me a week before to go through any final details. Thanks to the communications before hand everything went perfectly on the day, despite the rain which meant we changed plans last minute. Nothing was too much trouble for the band and they did an amazing job of putting their vintage twist to our wedding song. I would highly recommend them as a fun, friendly, professional and great sounding band. THANKS again guys it was awesome!

We booked The Alchemists for our 1920/1930s speakeasy party. Wow........ they were even better than what we expected, dresses superbly, very professional and the music..... well.... they were the talk of the party!!! They had everyone up dancing to their unique covers of amazing songs. The Alchemists really knew how to work the crowd. They’re also really lovely people individually. Would have no hesitation booking them again. Thanks guys!!! We LOVED YOU!!

Can I just pass on our gratitude for playing at our birthday party.
We saw you at the Brew & Kitchen in Wilmslow and we knew then that we wanted you to perform for us. Our friends and family have said how much they enjoyed the day. They loved the music and we especially loved the Coldplay tune. You made our day. Thanks again.

The Alchemists played at a recent family birthday party, they were fantastic. The diversity of set was great for the guests, we were all thoroughly entertained and there was plenty to dance to. We were able to go through the set before the event and ask for special requests which was a bonus. I especially liked how cohesive the band were - there is a vibrant energy shared amongst them all which shines through in their performance. I would highly recommend then and will definitely be using them again!
