ABOUT ME

The Robbers – playing the best music from the 1960s to the present day. The band has a great rapport with an audience and always attempt to live up to their cheesy tagline – ‘stealing the show’.

Based in Manchester and playing throughout the North of England, the Midlands and most of Wales, the band are available to book for weddings, birthdays, corporate events or any other celebration. Whatever the event your guests are bound to have a great time as they dance the night away.

The band features Matt on lead vocals & guitar, Nora on bass & vocals and Stuart on drums & vocals. They have worked hard to create a big sound, with 3-part vocal harmonies and great musicianship.

The Robbers are usually asked to play up to 2 x 60 minute sets but can tailor the length and number of sets to your event. They can also play recorded music through their PA between sets if that’s desirable, saving you the cost of a DJ.

For performances they generally dress in black and white stripy T-shirts which makes them really stand out from the crowd although, as you can see from the images, they can dress more formally should the occasion call for it.

The Robbers are great value for money.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

The band is completely self-contained and has a PA system suitable for up to about 250 guests. If the event will host more than that then a larger PA can be hired. The band tour with their own stage lighting but can also utilise whatever is in the venue if it is suitable.

At many events a DJ is also booked, however, the band are happy to provide a CD player or a solid state device (iPod, android phone, etc) to play music through their PA between sets if required.

The Robbers have public liability insurance up to the value of £10 million and all of the equipment is PAT tested on a regular basis – a dull detail but one which will please your venue manager!

At the venue the band need some electric power (at least 2 plug sockets) and a minimum performance area of about 3 meters x 3 meters or a little more if possible. It’s useful if they have a private room to change in, chill out and to keep their possessions, but that’s about all. If you fancied plying them with food and drink while they were with you I’m sure they wouldn’t complain.
