Live Band

Classique was formed by Paul (Keyboards) and Dave (Guitar) who were joined at the outset by Oll (Bass) and Rich (Drums). Emma was our founding vocalist and is our principle female lead vocalist and does most of the gigs with us but we are blessed with having fantastic standins in Claire and Leah . Martin our lead vocalist emigrated to Australia but has since returned and now brings his sophistication to all of our gigs.

Our 6 piece lineup up is: male and female lead vocalists, guitar, bass, drums and multi-keyboards.

Sometimes we can offer an alternative 5 piece line up with a male or female lead vocalist.

A 4 piece version is available with either male or female vocal fronting

If you need jazz or dinner music we can offer a trio piano, double bass, drums or quartet with acoustic guitar.

Thanks so much again for the brilliant music on our wedding night! The band were not only great musicians, but were so accommodating in terms of setting up, even going as far as lending my cousins guest band your instruments to play their set! I knew the party would be good, but never expected the dancefloor to be so full all night. I’d have no hesitation in recommending you and Classique to anyone for any function. Thanks again and good luck to you and the band for the future.
Best regards,

Dylan and Laura McCarthy

A belated thank you for your efforts at Knowsley Hall 2 weeks ago. We have received a lot of compliments about the music through out the evening. I hope you feel that it was well received at the time – I certainly got the impression you were getting some good responses and the dance floor was busy all night long!

Many thanks once again for your contributions to a great reception. I will certainly be recommending you both for any other weddings etc in the NW.

Kind regards

Ben Cartledge

I photographed a wedding recently at Chester town hall.I have a few good images of the Band in action. You make a very good sound, well done. I did not want to leave. Regards Philip Gilman LBIPP

Just a quick note to say many, many thanks for the gig that you and the band performed at our wedding. It was fantastic to say the least. We have no hesitation in recommending you and are sure that you will be contacted by some of the guests in the not too distant future.

We hope that our paths cross again soon.

Thanks again

Rachel & Richard

I attended a wedding a couple of weeks ago where the entertainment was provided by Classique. Everyone really enjoyed the performance and had a great night. I wonder if you could possibly supply me with prices for a similar evening? Our wedding is taking place in a marquee in Astbury, Congleton on Saturday 04 August.

Classique gave a truly professional performance at the Reebok Stadium- throughly enjoyed by everyone – I wont hesitate to use you again.

Andrea ”

You were all absolutely amazing; top class. we’ve had many people tell us to ask about you guys – I’m sure you will get more bookings soon. Your performance was just what we wanted – it got everyone on the dancefloor and raised the tempo of the whole night. We really could not have asked for anything more.
