Lost In Music

Lost In Music are a fully professional (and really cool!) live party band, comprising the absolute cream of British singers and musicians. They are perfect for all functions - corporate events, weddings, large festivals, birthdays, bar (and bat)-mitzvahs, theatres outdoor events, etc.

They have an enormous set list (over 270 songs, and growing constantly! See the separate page for a full list) and are hugely experienced (something of an understatement!) in playing all kinds of shows, all over the country and abroad.

They are working constantly all over the UK and can incorporate many different (superbly put together) costumed themes into their show such as Abba, 1970's disco, Grease, 1980's, James Bond, School Disco, 1950's rock 'n' roll or Madonna. Please see the separate pages on this website for some information and photos on these different sets.

The band can be booked either as a function band (with or without one of these themed sets), or as a tribute band, playing only a particular theme. All of the sets consist of the same singers and musicians.

The list of companies they've played for reads like a who's-who of corporate Britain: British Airways, Nationwide Building Society, BBC, John Lewis, Pfizer, Tesco, Ryan Air, BT, Kuoni, Lancome, Ernst & Young, Institute of Directors, Haymarket Publishing etc and many many more. Please see the What Have They Done? page for a longer list.

Formats

Lost In Music can be booked as a basic 6-piece band (male and female lead vocals, guitar / vocals, drums, keyboards / vocals, bass / vocals). The band numbers can be flexible though, depending on the function. An extra female singer can be added (to allow costume changes mid-set) or you could upgrade to the incredibly exciting 11-piece (adding an extra female singer, an extra male singer, and a brass section) - this big band is a fantastic spectacle with four lead singers and makes it possible for the band to perform costumes changes mid-set. For example, they could have two girls going off stage to change into an Abba costume while there are still two lead singers on stage whipping the audience up into a frenzy - the pace is relentless!

USP

There are lots of function bands around, some good, some not so good. So Lost In Music need a Unique Selling Point (USP) and it comes down to this - if you would like to book a band who stand still on stage whilst reading music, holding a pint, playing half-heartedly along to backing tracks and looking as though they would rather be somewhere else, then perhaps you need to look elsewhere. Lost In Music are a bunch of great* musicians that want to enjoy what they do - play fantastic party music to get your guests moving - and their enthusiasm is completely infectious. They produce layer upon layer of rich vocal harmonies (there are plenty of singers in the band, not just the lead vocalists) and there is lots of energy on the stage. Your dance floor will be full from beginning to end and your guests will still be talking about them in years to come.

Organisation

The band are managed by Kevin McCarthy who prides himself on his organisational skills - here is a musician (with a business background) who realises that, as much as this is a fun job for everyone, it is still a job that needs to run like clockwork. Call him for chat about your event, he's very helpful.

Value for Money

Despite their musical CV, booking Lost In Music for your function is not as expensive as you might think. Please contact Kevin for a quotation.

Other stuff

Lost In Music can bring a state-of-the-art PA system and lighting for your event so that they arrive fully self contained. Want music before, in-between and after the band's live sets? No problem, they have professionally mixed compilations to keep everyone moving. It's certainly not a case of pressing play on any old CD! Or, if you prefer, they will provide a real-life DJ for you. Please note - Lost In Music are a FULLY LIVE band, they do not record instruments and vocals onto a backing track - what you hear is what is being played live. They kind of assume that, if you want to hear drum machines, you'd book a DJ instead?

Conclusion

Put simply - Lost In Music are a fabulous band that will not let you down, no matter how large or small your event. Nowhere else will you find a band with such an outstanding CV and professional attitude at such a reasonable price! And they're cool too....

* The definition of a great musician is knowing all the complicated chords, riffs and rhythms, but knowing that it's perhaps not a good idea to play all of them, all at the same time, in order to show off.

Disclaimer: Lost In Music are great musicians but cannot promise that they won't show off just a little bit. Sorry.
