With 12 years of playing experience as a duo we have performed across the UK and Europe in all types of venues and to a variety of audiences. We understand what it takes to make every type of event a success and we always work closely with a client to achieve this.
We have performed at weddings, birthday parties, fundraisers, award ceremonies, Christmas parties, charity events, civil partnerships and house parties and are happy to play at any special or unusual event so please do not hesitate to contact us.
We can perform at any type and size of venue you require, whether this is a hotel, Manor House, bar or at a private residence.
We perform music from all decades (50s – 00s) and across all genres. Our repertoire has in excess of 60 songs and growing and we are constantly updating this with new material.
Whether it’s in the UK, Europe or International will be happy to perform at your event.
Our start and finish times are flexible as they depend on the client’s itinerary for the afternoon / evening. If you require an earlier start / later finish time than the contractual timings this is not a problem but an additional fee may be charged.
There are a number of options when booking Between The Loops, 2 x 60 minute sets, 2 x 45 minute sets, 2 x 30 min sets or 1 x 60 min sets. If you have other timings in mind please discuss this at the time of your enquiry.
Our ideal set up time is 60 mins but we can set up quicker as long as we have easy access to the venue (i.e. ground floor room and vehicle access close to performance area at the venue). On average we would require a minimum of 45 mins to complete a set up and sound check.
As standard we require a performance area of 2x4 metres but we are accustomed to playing a variety of different venues with varying performance spaces.
As we have invested in the latest sound and lighting systems our power consumption is low but we prefer to run both systems from different power sources to reduce the risk of noise interference. We ideally require 2 double 13 amp sockets, one either side of the performance area as we draw approximately 16 amps during a performance. Please note events held in marquees with power supplied by a generator can effect sound and light systems if the power output is inadequate.
As standard we carry an iPad with in excess of over 5000 songs to all our performances that we use specifically for this. We have a number of playlists with music ranging from the 50s to 00s making sure we can cater for guests of all ages.
Our performance times are important in making your event flow properly. We are flexible and happy to discuss this in detail.
For most events we will dress in our smart casual attire (as per our promotion material) unless otherwise stated by the client.
We are happy to learn a special song but this does depend on whether it will suit an acoustic format, our playing style and the male vocal. Certain genres of music do not lend themselves to the acoustic format and can make it hard for us to do a song justice. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss this with you.
As we are an acoustic duo we can play at very low volume to provide background music which blends seamlessly into any environment and event. We always insure that our volume levels are such that people at an event can still converse easily.
We have many reviews from our previous clients and these can be found on this website on the reviews page.
We will require a room to change in, preferably lockable so we can store our clothes / valuables safely. We also ask that food and light refreshments are provided at any event. Please note this is standard for all professional working bands.
We have up to date PAT certification and Public Liability Insurance cover up to £10M which comes as standard for all events.
You are welcome to use our sound system but please be aware of the following points:
We do not use radio mic’s so the speech would need to be near where we have set up. The PA is not mobile so once it is set up this cannot be moved to another location. Think about timings as it will add additional costs to our fee if we arrive early. If you do use our equipment please note you will not be covered on our Public Liability insurance.
Having a guest join us for our performance can be a real high point of the evening ....... or a low point. To avoid this we would like to discuss this prior to your event with yourself and the person you have in mind. As we have so much expensive equipment on and around the stage area an impromptu guest jumping up to join us can result in disaster and cost to them/you. Also, please note they would not be covered by our Public Liability Insurance.
You can pick up to 15 songs and we will build a set around the majority of your selection. It also helps to inform us of any songs you do not wish to be played. Please note we cannot guarantee to play all of your choices as we DJ the set according to age group and crowd reaction.
We have never cancelled an event but it in the unlikely circumstance that this did happen we would make every effort to find a suitable replacement act. As our work is our livelihood we take our commitments seriously and we also understand how much events mean to each individual client.
As the majority of our work is for private clients for weddings, corporate or function events we try and keep our marketing i.e. recordings and videos as up to date as possible. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page as we do occasionally play public venues in our local area: www.facebook.com/betweentheloops
This can depend on a number of factors such as the time of year, which day of the week, location of your event and timings on the day. Our standard price starts at £500.
Unfortunately we do not take provisional bookings due the fact that we are dealing with so many enquiries on a weekly basis, this would mean turning clients away on peak dates. If you do make an enquiry with us it will be logged on our calendar and you will be given first refusal on your date.

The set up in the garden looked fantastic with the lighting and I have already booked them again for next year"

Claire Fletcher – Private BBQ
"We always look forward to Jen and Stu's summer party, especially knowing that they always have such great live music. We were all out of our seats dancing and singing along when 'Between The Loops' played this year. I was amazed at some of the music in their repertoire with there just being the two of them! Absolutely brilliant - hope to see them again"
Anna Lawrence – Private Party
"Between The Loops performed at our home summer party and they were amazing. We were all mesmerised by the quality of the songs. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their performance and they add their own twist which makes it very unique. I highly recommend them for private parties and they would be fantastic for weddings. Even our neighbours enjoyed listening"
Sarah Jennings – Wedding
"Hi guys, we just wanted to say thank you for your performance at our wedding celebrations. As soon as you started we knew we had picked the right entertainment. Thanks for performing our first dance on such short notice and for everything. Tim being a musician himself was most impressed and we will certainly be recommending you guys in the future"
Emily Lawson – Graduation Party
"Between The loops performed at my graduation/birthday party and I'm so happy they did. The music was excellent! There was a little bit for everyone and some unique covers of well-known songs. All my friends and family commented on how good the music was and as it was a surprise party I was most shocked when the boys started playing. Thank you! x"
Barbara Smith – Staff Party
“I just wanted to thank you both for your performance. Everyone enjoyed themselves and you both made the night perfect. I'm not the best at organising events and when I was given the task I was rather worried. After contacting yourselves you made the whole process so easy and your help was most appreciated. We will certainly look to book you again soon when we have our next party”
John Robinson – Bar Event
"Seen these guys several times now and they continue to blow me away every time I hear them play. Damien, the main vocalist, brings his own wonderful interpretations to familiar songs, whilst Aaron, the driving force behind the duo, provides a seamless support to Damo’s eccentricity. Please, if you get the opportunity, try and listen to this duo. I guarantee you will not be disappointed"
Cathie Heller – Garden Party
“I was looking for something a bit different and unique for my festival themed garden party so I booked Between The Loops. I wanted some chilled music at first leading onto lively tunes and these boys delivered! My personal favorites were the 90s tunes they did, wait till you hear their version of Born Slippy and Killer! I was so amazed at the ‘twist’ they did with the songs!!"
