The Smooth Criminals

The Smooth Criminals are the Ultimate Party Band. Having performed over 100 weddings we know exactly what our clients want. Professionalism, excellent communication blended with a show-stopping performance from musicians who have all performed with many of the UK's top function bands as well as well known original bands, named artists and on numerous of the world's most exclusive cruise ships including Royal Caribbean & Carnival.

We don't just perform at weddings either! We have vast experience in corporate functions, private parties and regular gigs in live music venues and can tailor our set list to suit any occasion. We've fine tuned our service to provide you with the best experience you could wish for.

Our tried and tested repertoire only features the very best dance floor hits from up the minute chart hits to soul and rock classics to get your guests up on the floor all night. Few bands can boast such a varied set list. Unlike some party bands we don't just churn out the same old songs again and again regardless of the audience response, we constantly update our playlist to keep it fresh and ensure every night is unforgettable.

Our flexible line ups suit any budget, from our standard 5 piece with strong male and female lead vocals, drums, bass, keys and guitar down to a rockin' 3 piece, right up to a 7 or 8 piece for larger do's. Our adaptable, powerful PA system can be adapted to fit any room large or small, up to a capacity of around 300 people. We pride ourselves on our sound and show so we make sure we only use the best equipment and take the time to get things just right.

We can also provide lively music in the breaks for free or offer a great value DJ package with a huge catalogue of thousands of tunes regularly updated at around half the cost of a regular pro DJ. Our experienced DJ is one of the band and can take requests and will integrate perfectly with the band ensuring your guests are dancing (in the words of Lionel Ritchie) 'All Night Long'.

Reviews & Testimonials

'We're back from honeymoon and now the dust has settled we wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you for helping make our wedding a day to remember. You were brilliant (even better than I'd remembered from your promo video), and everyone kept coming up to us all night to say how fantastic you were. You kept the dance floor moving, and we had an absolute blast celebrating with you. We will definitely be recommending you to others (and judging from our guests' reactions, some of them will be too!). James, you made all of the arrangements in the run up so easy, and as a slightly frazzled bride to be I really appreciated that! We are still on cloud nine, and you all will be one of our stand out memories for years to come.' - Emma & James Hume, Wedding Reception, Lains Barn, Wantage

'Thank you guys and gal so much for performing at our wedding on Saturday. Great set list particularly in the second half when the party really started and the limbo was in full swing! We found it so easy dealing with you and we couldn't have picked a better wedding band. Thanks for helping to end our day on a high!' - Emma & Simon Riley, Evesham

'Steve and I wanted to thank you and the rest of the band for providing such excellent music, entertainment and a great atmosphere at our wedding reception on Saturday. Everyone danced all night and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You managed to include everything that we asked for and capture the celebrations into the whole evening, even joining in. Despite having never seen you perform you reassured us throughout our contacts with you and we are delighted with your whole performance. On behalf of all of our guests, huge thanks.' - Steve & Vikki Carter, Kings Court Hotel, Alcester

'We just wanted to thank yourself and the band for your performance at our wedding on the 16th June at Mythe Farm, we've just got back from our honeymoon so are catching up on things we didn't get a chance to do before we went away. We received numerous comments and words of praise for your performance, especially for your front singer who had a great stage presence. Even the photographer wanted your contact details for I believe to be his forthcoming wedding! Thanks once again! Yourself and the band really turned what was already a great day into an amazing one.' - Chris & Hazel, The Mythe Barn, Atherstone

'You were all fantastic! Thank you for playing at our wedding reception. You made no fuss that we were running late, coped with all the requests we gave you in the run up with the French and Belgian music and are a brilliant band. We had a great time dancing, as did all our guests. We may book you again for a future event! All the best with your music - carry on playing!' - Helen & Pascal

'Just got back from our mini-moon and would like to say thanks so much for the sets you did and especially the first dance song, that was incredible, you should add that to your repertoire. I didn't spend half as much time on the dance floor as I'd have liked...this was the only downside of my day. But when I did you guys rocked! Hopefully get to see you at another wedding as lots of friends were asking about you and said how good you were.' - Matt & Emily, Wedding Reception, Curradine Barns, Worcester

'A massive thank you for such a great night! We all really enjoyed the music and I was thrilled about the number of people on the dance floor - a wonderful atmosphere! We've had some fantastic comments about you guys from our guests, and will be honoured to recommend you if we get the opportunity!' - Alex & Alan, Pendrell Hall, Wolverhampton

'Thank you guys for providing amazing entertainment. I couldn't have wished for the night to go any better. From the start to the end of the evening you have been nothing but professional even with us running late!! And thank you so much for orchestrating dancers and making sure things ran smoothly. All night I was receiving compliments from the guests about your sets.' - Hannah & Aaron, Hampton Court, Solihull

'A huge thanks to you all, we have had a lot of feedback from people saying they loved you guys and so did we. It really made our wedding night so much better having you there. What we were really impressed by was how you guys coped with the last minute emergencies of your singer being ill. No one would have known to be honest as the person who filled in their spot was absolutely fab! As you can probably remember the dance floor was very busy which was exactly what we wanted - so great job! Great suggestion about the electric drum kit too, it sounded great and the entire mix was spot on!' - Laura & Phil, The Ashes, Staffordshire

'Just wanted to say a huge thank you from myself and Neil for playing at our wedding at the Guildhall in Lichfield. You guys were absolutely brilliant and were the highlight of the whole much so I didn't leave the dance floor all night and neglected a few evening guests - oops! Thank you also for allowing Neil to come up and play - he has never done that before and was in his element, bless! I will have no hesitation in recommending you for future events and have already had a number of guests at the wedding asking for your details so you can probably expect a few more enquiries coming your way as a result. All the best for the future - I am now looking for an excuse to book you again so hopefully we will have the pleasure in seeing you again!' - Hannah & Neil, Lichfield Guildhall, Lichfield

'May I take the opportunity to say a massive thank you for your performance on Friday. I can't begin to tell you how many people commented on how brilliant you were, what was even more pleasing was that these people ranged from 12 years old to 85! In fact one of our guests used to own a number of clubs/bars many years ago and told me that he had booked 100's of acts over the years and not only did he feel you were one of (if not not the) best he could recall, but also he couldn't think of an act that was so age inclusive and had so many people of different ages on the dance floor. Lizzi mentioned to me afterwards there had been a revision with the limiter? Anyway you sounded fantastic and everyone of our guests commented on the electric atmosphere in the Marquee and you made the biggest contribution to this. Thank you for learning Maybe I'm Amazed (we loved the version) we couldn't have been happier and when we return from our Honeymoon, I promise to do the rounds on social media!'- Ben & Lizzi, Forest of Arden Hotel, Maxstoke

'Thank you for playing our wedding at The Ashes Exclusive Country House Barn Wedding Venue on Sunday, you were fantastic! I literally didn't stop dancing, brilliant music, great songs that everyone enjoyed. You even managed to come up for a request for a song people could jive to! You made it a fantastic night. Thanks for including all the songs i asked for in the DJ set too, made it all the more special.' - Nicola & Chris Griffin, The Ashes, Stoke-On-Trent

'Everyone was blown away with your performance on Sunday. I was particularly impressed by the Angela Jones song that you had taken the trouble to learn demonstrating your groups tremendous talent. Your photos looked great and captured the mood of the evening. One of our guests has sent your info to a friend that runs Wishaw golf club and are looking for talent, if you get any bookings there it will be due to your great performance on Sunday.' - Barry Lycett, Father of the Bride, Pendrell Hall, Wolverhampton

'Thank you to The Smooth Criminals for a superb performance at my sister's wedding in March. We had a fabulous night with so many guests commenting on how fantastic the band were, the dance floor was full all night! They were exceptional on all counts, professional and friendly conduct and an amazing performance that exceeded all expectations. The lead female vocalist had a superb voice and they were all first class performers. A great way to end the perfect day. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend you to friends and colleagues in the future.Our heartfelt thanks to you all.' - Melissa Griffiths, Mallory Court, Leamington Spa

'Thank you so much for playing our wedding: everyone has said how impressed they were with the band and what a good party it was. Even the staff at Titchwell said how much they enjoyed you guys! It really was the cherry on the cake for the whole day - cannot thank you enough for an excellent service, performance and coming all the way from Birmingham! I hope you enjoyed your stay in Norfolk and also your holiday this week.' - Steph & Phil, Titchwell Manor, Norfolk

'We have finally got round to be able to write a thank you to yourselves for performing on our special day. You were spectacular and all of our guests commented on how amazing you were! Atif (and everyone else) loved your rendition of Smooth Criminal and we really appreciated you learning it in time for our wedding. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a band that will have everyone on the dance floor from start to finish. We cannot wait to see you again at Caz & Jamie's big day - Atif is practising his moves already!' - Rachael & Atif, Hyde Barn, Gloucestershire

'A quick note to thank you for an awesome performance at our son's wedding, so many of the guests and staff of the venue have been passing on their comments, all glowing, a brilliant atmosphere was created! Personally, I've never seen a dance floor so busy throughout the whole evening. I trust you didn't mind my youngest son joining in with Ffion Davies, he was certainly blasting the song out (can't recall what it was). I have already sung your praises to friends and I'm sure that Hannah at Kingswood will be recommending you at her regular Wedding Fairs.' - David & Susie Timms, Parents of the Groom, Kingswood Golf Club, Surrey

'Thank you all so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. We are loving the photos that you've taken! Everyone (and we mean everyone) we've spoken to about you guys, raved at your party atmosphere, incredible voices, amazing songs and your interaction with the crowd. We just know we chose correctly when we asked you to play. So thanks, you really helped our evening reception run smoothly and help everyone enjoy themselves. We highly recommended you guys to anyone wanting a reception band.' - Paul & Rachel Waldron, Priston Mill, Bath

'Thanks for an amazing finish to our wedding day! I must say that booking this band was the best and most memorable part of our wedding day apart from actually getting married. Almost every single guest from all walks of life asked us where we found you guys. The songs varied to suit every taste in the room and your performance was outstanding. So my advice to anyone out there thinking of booking this band is don't hesitate! No playlist you make or DJ you hire could even come close to the sound and feel of these guys and girl performing live at your special occasion. They were so flexible and able to accommodate our requests and theme, we are just itching for an excuse to book them again. So honestly thank you all so much for making our wedding day even more amazing!' - Joe & Nic Charles, Manor Hotel, Meriden

'Just a short note to say thank you for what can only be described as an EXCELLENT evening of entertainment. Everyone who attended the party has voiced their delight at how professional and talented you were.

'Just wanted to say a massive thank you for an absolute great night of entertainment! You were all amazing and everybody has commented how much they enjoyed you!

'Myself and Kevin had an amazing day and that was with your help! You were all fantastic, and we have so many compliments saying how brilliant you were! If there is anywhere you would like us to leave reviews etc as soon as we are back from honeymoon we will be more than happy to do so!' - Emma & Kevin Kay, The Pear Tree Hotel, Worcester

'Thanks for the amazing service you provided at our wedding on Saturday. The standard was superb and the dance floor was packed all night! From the youngest to the oldest guest, they all loved the band and we had so many positive comments about how great you were. You worked around the fact that our timings were also slightly later than anticipated! You created the perfect party atmosphere.' - Mr & Mrs Lewis, Banbury

'Mark and I wanted to say thank you so much to the band for performing at our wedding on Saturday! I'm really not exaggerating when I say that practically everybody commented on how brilliant you were! It was exactly as we hoped it would be, everyone up and dancing and having a wonderful time. I think my little flower girls Daisy & Poppy particularly enjoyed Charlotte's voice...they kept waving at her! I will certainly recommend you to friends,right from my initial enquiry you were helpful and reassuring.' - Krissy & Mark Harding, Hatton Village Hall

'We really enjoyed your band playing at our wedding. Everyone has been raving about you ever since and rightly so. You certainly helped make our day very special.

We hope you enjoyed the evening too and that you will forever remember our wedding as the gig in the living room!' - Michelle & Garrath Ellershaw, Grantham

'On the 28th December 2012 you attended our civil partnership ceremony for Kate and I at the Woodside in Kenilworth. These are the words that I would echo regarding the ceremony, which you were part of. When we set about choosing our night time entertainment for our ceremony we wanted a band that would appeal to all, would have a sense of fun and get people up and dancing. We watched you on YouTube and read your reviews, which impressed us. We were always confident that we had chosen well. We would like you to know that we were very impressed by your professionalism throughout the booking process and on the night itself. Judging by the numbers on the dance floor, it was obvious that you entertained us all very well. Kate and I would like to thank you for making it all effortless but above all making our celebrations perfect. We cannot recommend you highly enough.' - Louise & Kate, Civil Partnership, Kenilworth

'Rich and I want to thank you for putting on such a great show for our wedding on 8th December 2012. The selection of songs were fantastic, the band were so professional, we couldn't have asked for anything better. It was obvious how much everyone enjoyed it, I've never seen such a packed dance floor at a wedding! We'll certainly be recommending you to others in the future, thanks again to all of you.' - Tania & Rich, Bromsgrove

'Thanks so much for last night you were all amazing! So many guests commented on how good you were and how much they enjoyed you. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band for us.' - Joel & Mary, Bromsgrove

'A huge thank you to you guys for playing at our wedding!! It was great to have Mark playing during the day and then for you guys to play during the evening, everyone loved it!! Hopefully we will be able to find a reason soon to book you again! Hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year!' - Gemma & Ben, Shrewsbury

'What an amazing night! My feet are still hurting, and my bridesmaids as we have never danced so much. I also can't speak because I was singing at the top of my voice. I never came over to speak to any of you but that's because I didn't want to leave the dance floor. So I apologise if I may have seemed rude but I was just having fun. You had great reviews from our guests. So thank you so much for being the best entertainment EVER and getting us all on our feet. The whole band added to making our wedding day one to remember. Thank you Smooth Criminals! Love the newly weds!' - Rebecca & James, Stratford

'We just wanted to say a massive thank you for being our wedding band! Everyone, and I mean everyone has commented on how amazing you were and how much of a good time they had dancing! Your band created such a fun atmosphere and it was great to see the dance floor packed all night! Even family members who typically 'never dance' were up dancing! Even a month after the wedding people are still commenting on how good you were and how much they enjoyed the wedding! So thank you all very much for making it such a special night! We were both really impressed at how professional and organised you were, and were were really pleased to hear that the hotel have asked you to be their house band! We are so glad that we booked you and we will definitely be recommending you!' - Lauren & Kevin, Bowden Hall Hotel, Gloucester
