Ego King have been helping people to have a good time for the past fifteen years at weddings, special birthdays, corporate dinners and fund-raising events across the North-West.
Let us take the worry out of your event so you can relax and enjoy. Ego King is completely self-sufficient, providing full PA, sound engineer, lighting, stage set-up and background music, if required. Our experienced team will advise and support your planning and be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly. If you'd like to personalise your event and have a particular song you'd like us to play, we’ll plan this in advance with you, and our tailored set will ensure your guests leave smiling and singing along to their favourite tune from way back when.
“…an unforgettable live band experience…two fantastic sets…thank you so much for our first song and an amazing night!” – Vicky (Cheshire wedding 2018)
Ego King are a six-piece band based in Chester UK, performing a wide range of covers – we say from “ABBA to Zappa” – with tight harmonies, sophisticated instrumentation and powerhouse beats. With male and female lead vocals, four-part harmonies, plus keys, violin, lead guitar, bass guitar and drums we offer a constantly-evolving, extensive set list to entertain all ages from 7 to 70+, with music from the 60s through to current charts.
Our name reflects our self-assured renditions of popular songs and our unique logo was inspired by a small group at one event who thought our set was being played by the juke box. Our authentic covers range from dance, pop, rock and blues, through to punk, country, soul and swing – truly ABBA to Zappa!
We tailor our set to your audience and music tastes - we cover an extensive range of songs, from "ABBA to Zappa" and our authentic covers range from dance, pop, rock and blues, through to punk, country, soul and swing.

We had so many people coming up to us and telling us how awesome you were. We had an amazing night and thank you also for letting us pose with you for the photographer!” Laura and Matthew’s wedding, Rowton Hall, Chester
“We used Ego King as the live band for our Redrow staff party at the Macron stadium ballroom a few years ago. They had a great dance set and played to a packed dance floor. Since then, I've seen Ego King play at the Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music festival, Alexanders Mayfest and at a charity ball and can't believe the variety of what they play. They seem to pick just the right songs because the audience reaction is always very good.” Director, Redrow Homes North West
