Looking for live music to compliment your big day?

With years of combined experience as wedding waiters, MC's and events managers we can safely say, we're not your average wedding band... Here's why:


When you book us to play at your wedding, we're yours for the day. We won't be playing at anyone elses wedding or event.


You choose how to have our time spent. We can play for guests in the evening, for your wedding breakfast, for your first dance or a mixture of any of those. It's up to you!


Have a favourite band or a first dance request? Let us know, we can do a version of just about any song!


We won't arrive wearing trainers and starchy short sleeved black shirts. We will arrive wearing our Paisley bow ties and vintage dresses.


Foremost we are creators of spectacular events, it's what we do as a theatre company.

The Four Shadows Live Band is a vintage inspired three piece wedding band made up of performers from the award winning Four Shadows Theatre company. We take pride in treating every wedding we play like a theatre show, written and performed to get you and your guests singing and dancing along with us the whole night through!


We play songs from the 1950's all the way up to those from today, covering an eclectic array of artists, from Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and The Beatles, to Mumford and Sons, Florence + The Machine and Pharrell Williams. We play in a stripped back, beat driven style with rich layers of vocal harmonies, giving familiar anthems our own unique twist.


We offer evening music with full PA and lighting, as well as afternoon acoustic sessions which can be outdoors or roam with your guests... or a bit of both if you like!

Some additional information:


We can travel nationally. We are based in York, but can travel anywhere in the UK. All our music packages include travel within 50 miles of York, but any distance further would require a small fuel charge relative to the location.


We are insured to £10,000,000 and all our equipment is PAT tested. Any documentation can be emailed to your venue by us, if required.


Our most common times to play for are either: 1&1/2hrs or 2hrs or 2&1/2hrs. These times can be split up however you wish.


We offer a ‘not quite a DJ package’ whereby you can rent our PA and lighting after we have finished playing and in between sets. You provide a laptop, phone, iPod etc. and we can hook it up to our sound-system until the end of the night (12am latest) when we whisk all the equipment away. The cost of this service is £50.


We use the latest systems in audio technology and industry professional equipment to ensure we get the best sound possible along with super reliability. We use two 800w Alto speaker systems which although can get very loud, retain crystal clear quality. We only use high end and bespoke instruments and never use auto tune or backing tracks.


Due to our flexible nature we can play in spaces as small as a lift, or paces as big as concert halls. However, for evening entertainment we do ideally like a playing space of about 4m wide and 3m deep.


To secure a date in our diary we take a deposit of £150. If we are free on a wedding date at the time of enquiry please don’t assume this will be the case several weeks or months later, as we do take bookings regularly and some dates do go quickly.


If traveling further than 200 miles away from York we would need accommodation for all three of us. This can either be provided by yourself, by a friend or relative for example or we can book a place to stay locally (usually around £80 if using Air BnB).
