The Balloons are a four piece function and wedding band specialising in rock and pop classics from the past fifty years, covering classic and contemporary popular artists from The Rolling Stones, The Doors and The Beatles to The White Stripes, The Strokes and Arcade Fire. Unusually, all four members sing lead vocals, helping to diversify their sets.
Each member is a highly experienced musician in their own right. In 2015 Pembroke (vocals & guitar) was named BBC Introducing Artist of the Month; he receives regular radio plays and has performed live on TV for London Live network. Steve (vocals, guitar & keys) is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist with 20 years' experience gigging up and down the country with various acts including The Libertines. Sam (vocals & drums) and Mike (vocals & bass) have toured nationally and internationally together with their previous originals projects, supporting acts such as Johnny Foreigner, The Wombats and The Holloways, as well as playing on the UK’s major festival circuit.
Together they provide an upbeat, dance-orientated experience for any occasion. Playing a wide variety of material with unique arrangements, high-energy performances and joyous musicality, The Balloons put on a show like no other function band.
