Monroe are a cut above the typical function bands. Consisting of a collective of top-level, professional session musicians Monroe have individually performed and recorded with artists such as Errol Brown, Simon Webbe (Blue), Atomic Kitten, Girls Aloud, Ronan Keating and many more.
Singer Polly's stunning vocals have appeared on dance tracks by producers from top House & Drum and Bass labels such as Moda Black, Hospital Records and Defected Records. Her most recent collaboration with Dubstep producer Seven reached Number One in the Dubstep downloads chart.
Monroe offer absolute flexibility to suit any event - Polly & guitarist Ian have performed together as an acoustic duo for around 8 years, and have a distinctive, jazz-infused style which has seen them perform for Premiership Football Teams, prestigious London Hotels and star-studded awards ceremonies.
Th duo can be scaled up to an acoustic band - a 4-piece, live-lounge style lineup perfectly suited to smaller venues, daytime events or locations with noise limitations.
And to fill any dancefloor Monroe enlist the help of their highly-trained and experienced band members to form their electric party band. With a huge selection of dance, funk and soul tunes guaranteed to span the decades and appeal to any audience, Monroe have a special talent for their signature mash-ups and medleys - blending old with new seamlessly for a genuinely thrilling and entertaining performance.

"Polly and Ian played at our wedding (ceremony, drinks and meal), and were absolutely incredible! So many of our guests commented on how great their music was. Two moments I'll never forget were Polly singing one of our favorite songs for me to walk down the isle- this was simply stunning, and secondly....en vogue! This got the party started at 4.30 for myself and the netball girls! Loved it! Thank you so much, what a talented pair! We will be sure to come and see you play soon, with love Mr&Mrs Swaithes" Laura Swaithes
"My Husband and I could not recommend Monroe Acoustic enough, Polly and Ian are amazing and made our wedding unforgettable." Abi & Sam
"Boom, boom shake the room!!! nPolly, Ian and the team just did a fantastic job as ever for me in London on 24th November. Polly has performed at several functions for me both large and small, they never fail to deliver and always get the mood just right. 10 out of 10! Thanks again guys for making a great night into an awesome night." Tim Wilson, Sytner Group
"Our wedding reception was made perfect by these guys. Everything was flawless and we had so many comments from our guests who loved the atmosphere and quality of these guys!" Hannah & Fraser Mills
"Sublime guitar that's made to measure for a magnetic voice that won't let you go. Great set, intelligently put together that anticipates a whole range of audience. Not to be missed." Andy Daglish
"There are a LOT of acoustic duos around .. And many of those are very good but I reckon these guys are the absolute best. As a guitarist myself (well, guitar owner!) Ian's playing is simply brilliant, the arrangements are wonderfully musical and always spot on for the song. And Polly's voice is stunning .. absolutely out of the top drawer, incredibly adaptable and emotive .. From subtle jazz to full on Diva there is nothing she can't sing ..and always in a genuinely engaging way. Together the diversity of material they can perform is pretty much limitless and you won't meet two more friendly and accommodating people." Kev Scott
