We are The 88s - a 4-piece rockin' party band available for pubs, clubs, parties, weddings, charity fundraisers and corporate events.
What originally started as a project for a work Christmas party has evolved over a few years into a strong 4 piece with a serious commitment to the music - but an absolute desire not to be 'just another pub band'.
After watching a few of the same old acts in various places, we decided that a band should be enjoyed - not endured - and so have spent time building a set list that is unique, inviting and, above everything else, fun for those in attendance.
So whether you are a pub or club looking for a band, or an event looking for some great entertainment, The 88s will bring a show that is guaranteed to please, have the room bouncing and playing all those songs that you forgot you knew every single word to!

Brilliant - Nathan I booked The 88s for a charity fund raiser. I needed something to give it a real party atmosphere and make it different from just another raffle and bake sale! And wow! Did these guys deliver! Familiar songs but a different enough set to what you get with a normal pub band, played really well with a lively and engaging atmosphere. So many positive comments from those that attended and a better night than I could have hoped for. Can't wait to catch them again soon.
Amazing Wedding Band - Gaynor The 88s played at our wedding and I even got to sing! Really accomodating band and they filled the dancefloor. Totally recommend if you are looking for a band with lots of energy and can get the room bouncing!
