Hey! I am Cherry Valentine and I am available to book solo, as a duo and as a full five piece band.
Solo will just be me and my acoustic guitar, when playing as a duo I am joined by Ste on bass and for the full five piece I have a guitarist, saxophonist, bassist and drummer behind me.
We play a range of pop, indie, motown, ska and rock classics as well as modern hits that everyone knows, we always get the crowd dancing and have a large repertoire. Also willing to learn songs in advance for a show.
We are able to bring our full sound rig and lighting rig at no extra cost and can also offer a DJ service for a small fee.
We are all every experienced musicians and we love what we do.

This is without a doubt the best function band I have ever heard! They are that good!!! My guests were so in awe of them they forgot to dance at times! so friendly ad courteous, very professional and nothing was too much trouble. I can't recommend them enough. If you are looking for a band, don't look any further. This is your band! Amazing, 10 stars, top notch. Cherry you are a superb vocalist. I am thinking of having a party, for no reason, just to hire you again!. - Cliffy & Linda.
The band were fabulous! Great selection of songs and superb sound. Got everyone dancing and made sure our favourites were played. The band even learned a new song so my daughter could sing at our party. The lead singers voice is superb and she did a very special accoustic song which sounded brilliant. If you need a band then I recommend this one highly! - Jon H
We booked Cherry Valentine's band for our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier with them. Cherry was always quick to respond to questions and was super helpful throughout the planning process. The quality of their music was just amazing and they kept the dance floor full all night with a great selection of songs that everybody loved. - Susie B
Perfect band for our event - the regulars in our pub absolutely loved them ........and they are a tough crowd! - Shaun D
Cherry did an amazing job learning a new song for my first dance. Her acoustic skills were fantastic and she also did a dj session for us on the night. Being a humid day most guests were outside which didn't stop Cherry continuing. My venue was a small intimate affair with only 40 guests and she made sure the songs were appropriate for such an event ensuring songs requested were played as well. A relaxed approach seen and not so formal which is exactly as I wanted for the day. Amazing vocals, would highly recommend. - Kim A
Cherry was brilliant I would highly recommend her for any occasion. I will be looking for any excuse to hire her again. She sang, played her guitar and DJ'd our wedding the Friday just gone and it was absolutely brilliant. Loved every minute of her performance. Thank you so much Cherry. - Jessica A
Very good band. Professional and friendly - Graham M
Cherry was great for our pub on New Years Eve had everyone enjoying themselves,dancing and singing along would highly recommend - Scott Tilley
Excellent experience. Were fabulous. Lots of the party guests asked where we had found them and were impressed with voices and musicianship. Wonderful vocalist, great set list and really lovely people. If we ever have another party we would not hesitate to book, and next time maybe have the whole band! - Helen B
Lauren & Steve played at our BBQ Party and they were absolutely fab! Everyone loved the playlist that they did as we all knew the songs and the performance was amazing! So good the neighbour came out for a listen and asked me about them! Thanks so much both - so glad we booked ya! - Naomi S
We booked these for a childrens gala and they was fantastic the variety of music was brilliant and suited to all ages would definitely recommend booking would love to have you back again - Graham K
Lauren and the band played at the Nantwich Christie Hospital Support Group’s Silver Anniversary Ball at Wrenbury Hall last Saturday and they were amazing!! All night guests kept coming up to me and the other organisers telling us how much they were enjoying the music. The dance floor was full all night which is surely a good sign. Cherry Valentine Music certainly got the party started. Thank you for making our celebrations so special. - Neil Tinsley
A big thank you for playing at our wedding at The Saddleworth Hotel. The day was brilliant, but it was made extra special by you guys. I had checked a few bands out before the day, but I certainly made the right decision with you. Everyone that I spoke to was impressed with the band, and I am sure you will get further bookings on the back of the gig. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks again. Dave and Lorraine x P.S. Even the cheesy bit at the beginning worked out - Dave Bottomley
