ABOUT US

The Banjo Lounge 4 are an Edinburgh-based electro-acoustic crate digging mash-ups band delivering classics in an original and imaginative packaging. Once described as ‘Hayseed Dixie on speed with a serious chunk of Funk!’, they have been making fans wherever they play. Since their inception in 2007, their shows have included many gigs up and down the country and beyond including festivals, awards ceremonies for Theatre Scotland, the 2014 Ryder Cup end party, Edinburgh Film Festival wrap parties, Edinburgh Book Festival 2013 + 2016 launch parties, gigs for Visit Scotland, Fynefest, List Magazine's annual Festival Party, Club Vegas and The World Famous Speigeltent along with over 400 other shows from the old Marquee Club in Soho, London, to a cocktail boat on Loch Lomond and a pool party in Ibiza! They've played many private parties too including one for the cast of BBC's Eastenders and another for fashion designer Jenny Packham.

With 5 string banjo, acoustic guitar, double bass, stripped down drum-kit and 4 vocals, some really do say that their bluegrass-funk interpretations are better than the originals. Their eclectic and diverse blend of mash-ups include tunes by Louis Prima, Radiohead, Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Metalica, Panjabi MC’s Knightrider remix of ‘Mundian To Bach Ke’, a bluegrass souped version of Dizzy Rascal’s ‘Dance Wiv Me’, New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Jump Around’ by House of Pain, Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love', a high octane version of Duran Duran’s ‘Girls on Film’, a stylophone-powered version of 'The Final Countdown', The Beastie Boys’ ‘Intergalactic’, Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’, and Nelly’s bluegrass-ed ‘Hot In Herre’.

OUR PERFORMANCE OPTIONS

  • Price from £868
    The Banjo Lounge 4
    Band

    This price is for a local Edinburgh gig. Depending on the event, we normally do 2 or 3 x 45min sets or 2 x 1 hour sets. We also do shorter sets at festivals etc so cost really is dependent on context and location. We have a PA that is big enough for most smaller venues but an additional PA would be necessary for bigger cavernous spaces. We have basic lighting (3 floor-standing parcans) for ourselves. We are based in Edinburgh and shows further away would incur travel costs. We have done gigs as far away as Ibiza and Malta so if the money is right we are willing to travel!
