Brando play anything from Reggae/ska to Rock and everything in between. They're keen to take on requests on the night whether they have played the song before or not. You need to be good (or mad) to do that. Fortunately Brando are both. The lads like a challenge and are also known for their non stop two and a half hour high energy performances. Can you keep up?

We have often hired this band in London and the Isle of Wight and Zermatt, even flying them out to Barbados for a wedding, because they are so talented and so good. They know how to adapt to a crowd and play what works and how to keep the party going without stopping!
We love you guys!
Came across you in Cowes and been seeking you out at sailing events ever since as we know you always deliver a great atmosphere.
What more do you need for a wedding band? It was a no-brainer!
We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests. Once the dancing started it never stopped..... They all want to re-do the night. The venue staff said you were the best band they’d seen.
Thank you so much for helping make our day so special.
See you soon in Cowes!!
Sarah & Neil
The band were absolutely brilliant. They very kindly learned a new song for us to play at our wedding, and were amazing at being able to play song requests that people called out to them. Everyone had the best time dancing the night away!
Everybody who attended the wedding thought the band was fantastic. We thought the choice of music played was ideal for everybody. We will definitely recommend Brando to others and hope to book you again in the future. Thankyou.
The BRANDO boys are a huge favourite here at Cowdray. Talented, energetic and amazing fun! We LOVE BRANDO!
Superb band!!! They really know how to keep the crowd going and give an amazing, enthusiastic performance. Our only regret of our whole day is that we didn't start earlier so we could enjoy their performance for longer
Just a quick email to say thank you for Saturday night,
It was exactly what we wanted and was great to get everyone dancing all night,
Worryingly people are talking more about the band than the vows!
Cheers and see you in the Duke!
Olly and Sam
Just to say we had a massive night on Saturday, the party was a great success and the Brando boys were fantastic, they truly made the night. We have been receiving lots of amazing messages from all our friends and the overriding theme of all of them was; how good was the band!!!
You guys MADE our wedding. Seriously amazing and people are still talking about how fabulous you were now!! Thank you so much to Irving and the gang for being so wonderful, prefessional and damn-right SUCH FUN thank you thank you thank you xxx
Brando were absolutely incredible at our wedding. They’re really fun (and definitely don’t take themselves too seriously) and they’re beyond talented! They managed to play a request that they’d never played before, which says it all.
We and our guests were on the dance floor the whole time and I think they could’ve kept us there for hours longer if we had the time!
Everyone’s been talking about them since the wedding and they truly took our amazing day to another level. We’re so glad we chose them! Thank you Brando.
Brando were absolutely brilliant at our wedding, keeping everyone on the dance floor by taking requests. They were very easy going and friendly and it was very easy to make the booking. All our guests commented on how good Brando were as a band and that they played a good range of songs. Thank you to you all for making our Wedding amazing!
Brando were absolutely fantastic - everyone was blown away by them and we wish them all the best for the future - Belinda and Martin
thank you so much for a such an wonderful evening. every single guest messaged me the next day saying you are the best band they have ever seen. we are so pleased that everyone enjoyed the brando experience that we know and love.
we will definitely be booking you again....3 years to save up for my 40th!!! although as my birthday is january and we all found it chilly at the weekend i may have to push it into the summer and do a 40.5 birthday.
thanks so much again and hope to see you all again soon.
Just unbelievably excellent!
We have seen Brando a number of times at the Duke of York during Cowes Week, and we always have a brilliant time when they’re on. It was an easy choice to book them for our wedding this September, and they did not disappoint!
From the first dance to the final number, the dancefloor was full, and the requests kept coming! They were the perfect way to finish off an amazing day, and we could not recommend them highly enough! All the way through to the specifically requested zombie/love the way you lie/lose yourself mashup at the end, everyone had the best time.
Book this band if you want a party.
Great band and very accommodating with our stage invaders!
Music in between the band playing could have been better. Music tempo started a bit slow but when the requests starting coming everyone was on the dance floor.
Brando are the best party band there is - they are 100% guaranteed to interact with guests and ensure that the dance floor stays full all evening. There is no set play list - just endless and seamless transitions across many genres to keep the party rocking. Their version of tracks sounds better than the original thanks to a funky brass section, brilliant bass and great vocal range. We have lost count of the number of events we have been to with Brando and each has been unique and fun filled. We can't recommend them enough.
Everyone loved Brando, so many happy guests and people asking me where I had found them. We had the best night and the band were superb. Would highly recommend for any age group, they were brilliant at anticipating what was going to work and interacting with the guests on the dance floor. Cannot recommend highly enough. We are going to a party they are playing at next weekend and we cant wait to hear them. Thank you so much we will definitely ask you to play for us again. Roll on the next party!!
The band were fantastic. The feedback from guests has been amazing. They played non-stop from 7.15pm - 10pm. Incredible energy and especially loved by Binky from Made in Chelsea! ;)
We rate this band very highly and have heard them serveral times at Cowes week. Talented and really great at playing to the mood of the crowd. Excellent at our recent private event with loads of compliments from our guests.
Couldn’t have been better
We have been fans of the band for many years and we sooooooooooo excited when we booked them for our wedding.
As ever they did not disappoint, on point from the pre wedding planning to the last song.
We had several performers at the wedding and they all complemented on how amazing the band were, as did the rest of the guests and venue staff.
The band even accommodated our friends performing our first dance and having to plug into their equipment with was fantastic of them.
I have been recommending your guys for years and will continue to do so. Just need to find my next excuse to book them.
Thank you again for making our night so epic.
Brando were absolutely fantastic. We saw them at IOW fest before we were even engaged and knew we had to have them at our wedding when the time came! All our guests were on the dance floor and everyone said how great they were. Thank you for doing our first dance request and playing so many great hits for both the youngens and the oldies!! Would highly recommend, thanks so much!!!!
Communication and support from our assigned Hireband staff member (Irving) was superb.
Brando were fantastic, everyone thought they were a hit. I had countless people ask who they were and where I found them. Truthfully I did a lot of research and considered 30-40 options before making my decision but Brando's example performances stood out. We were both truly overjoyed with how their performance went. Great guys!
The process of booking the band was a joy from start to finish. Irving dealt with all the administration efficiently and made everything easy for us. The band (Brando) were absolutely outstanding. Their performance was superb and they engaged the audience too. Everybody at the party commented that they were the best band they had seen and the dance floor was packed from start to finish of their set. Brando are genuinely amazing!
Hi Irving, just wanted to thank you very much indeed for your help in arranging the band for the weekend. They were incredible as always and absolutely stole the show. Everyone loved them!
Please pass on my thanks again to the boys, and thank you again for making the process so easy.
Hope you have a great summer and look forward to seeing the band again soon!
What can I say!?! You and the rest of the guys were absolutely sensational last night! Wowzers!! All our guests were absolutely raving about you all - you really got the party going and I am so happy that you were part of our day.
Thank you so, so much for a truly memorable evening.
Sincerely hope to see you in Verbier
The band was absolutely phenomenal and definitely the highlight of the whole day. All the guests said how great you were. You totally filled the room and everyone was up dancing until the end, which was exactly what we wanted. Even my brother was on the dance floor, which I think was the first time he has ever danced in his life. You totally delivered above and beyond what was expected and we can't wait to see you play again soon.
Peter and Alice here!
The dust has finally settled from our wedding at Elmore Court on Saturday.
We just wanted to extend our heart-felt thanks to you and the band; you were incredible! Everyone was so impressed with you and absolutely loved the music and banter. We just didn't want you to stop!
We couldn't have wished for better entertainment; you without doubt, were one of the highlights of the day.
Please pass on our thanks to the other band members! Oh and apologies for the drunk lady who kept getting on stage with you all! You guys dealt with her extremely well!
Hope to see you again sometime! It would be our pleasure!
Anyway the band were really great and the making of the evening. They were efficient, punctual, courteous and helpful. They played through and all there were greatly impressed, so I hope they will get some more bookings in Yorkshire. Great music and very responsive to what the dancers wanted.
We was recommended this band by a friend who had seen them perform.
Blown away, they are an amazing band and so glad we chose them. All of our guests have commented on how brilliant they were.
Professional, fun and simply great.
Thank you so much.
Hope you are good. I just wanted to thank you and your amazing band.
Having been to a few weddings with a live band i have never experienced one as good as Brando. They were all amazing and all of our guests have commented on how brilliant they were.
Please thank them all for me and apologise for us trying to play their instruments!!!
Thank you to for all of your help, not living on the island it has been hard trying to organize everything but you made hiring a band a lot easier than i thought.
Many thanks again and i wish you and your band an amazing future.
Brando we're absolutely PHENOMENAL! From the first dance until the last they were fun, engaging, and they read the crowd perfectly. The music was incredible and the vibe was just brilliant. We had so many amazing comments about the band, and we are so glad that we chose to have Brando at our wedding - they were a real highlight of the day. We recommend them really highly.
Brando are the ultimate wedding band - so much fun and really get the party started. Totally read the mood of the room and play exactly what your guests want to hear. Can't recommend them highly enough!
We just wanted to send a somewhat belated but massive THANK YOU for playing at our wedding on the 22nd of October. We could not have asked for a better band and everyone has commented on how much time they spent on the dancefloor! 'Let Me Entertain You' was one of our personal highlights of the day, everyone was absolutely loving it!
We hope you'll remember us in the future because we will be those awkward people on the side of the stage waving 'you played at our wedding'!!!
I've attached a copy of our 'survivors photo' that we took at the end of night - thanks for joining in!
We hired Brando to perform at a gala dinner to celebrate our business' 10th anniversary and I can thoroughly recommend them as a band.
Without exception the feedback from our 400+ guests was what a fantastic band they were. From the first song to the last the dance floor was packed and they left the stage with our guests wanting more!
A genuine pleasure not only to watch them perform but also to deal with them, nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for a fun night with a versatile band look no further!
Thank you so so much for such an amazing evening and please thank Alex & Phil and the rest of the band. You guys were absolutely incredible! Everyone had the best evening!
Thank you for everything
I would like to say a huge thank you to Irving and Brando for a truly amazing evening. Everything went absolutely perfectly and the selection and range of music played was great. All our wedding guests hit the dance floor straight away and had the best evening! Thank you so so much.
Brando were truly brilliant! They really really made our night. I mentioned about 30 minutes before they started their first set that my husband was Australian, named 3 songs he and his friends would love to hear and they delivered on all of them! It made it so personal to us and the Aussies loved it, even prompting a cameo from one of our guests!
All the tracks they played were great and our guests loved them too, I can not recommend them enough.
Thank you for making our wedding even better, we need to do it all over again so we can have the boys back.
Hi Irving, I just wanted say thanks for sending the boys around last week. Although they had a hard act to follow, they were fantastic, excellent, superb and not only that they all were very nice chaps. Please pass on our thanks and we look forward to hearing them again soon.
The band played amazingly, at our wedding. Me and my wife we're over the moon. Are guest we're loving it and up dancing all night. I would definitely recommend Brando to anyone who is looking for a band for a wedding, party or any occasion. Thank you again Brando, you made our wedding, are guest haven't stopped talking about it!!!!
Awesome. Totally flexible with our last minute weather effected changes on the day and made the ceremony brilliant then an awesome gig after the food. Thank you
I had Brando as my wedding band and they were sensational. Very professional from the moment I booked. So friendly and easy to work with and most importantly the best sound ever! Great interaction with the crowd. Every guest has mentioned how great they were. The band was always going to be very important to me. The bar was high. Brando totally exceeded it. Thank you for making our day perfect.
Happy guests means a happy host. Thank you so much and please come back another time. We love you.
The setting was perfect and we danced so much we hurt on Sunday morning.....Brando are such a great band - they just “get it “ don’t they?
What a brilliant party! We had so much fun and the band were great!
Everything was so lovely, amazing band!
The band was terrific and lots of people on the dance floor demonstrated that.
I loved being there, dancing like a wild thing to the brilliant band.
We loved dancing the night away to that absolutely fab band.
A delicious supper and what a great band!
We loved the Janefest theme and of course THE BAND!! Sara couldn’t decide which band member she fancied the most!
Delicious food and amazing band.
We had a fab time and thought the band was brilliant.
What fantastic guys to work with, definitely hope to see them again! They definitely made the night.
Brando were absolutely brilliant and we had such a fun evening. So many of our guests have said to us that they were the best wedding band they have ever seen. We couldn't have been happier with the service from Hireaband and also the performance from Brando.
You simply couldn't ask for a better band! These guys are s serious cut above the average wedding band. Genuinely, they should be famous! They literally made our day....the crowd practically tore the venue down they were having such a good time. Can play anything and make even the golden oldies sound modern enough for the young ones too.
Absolutely amazing, I will definitely be using them again!
The band were amazing, our dinner and speeches ran very late , but the band were relaxed and set up when we were ready. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks guys xx
This band was professional but also so much fun!
It was heart-breaking for some of our guests not to have an encore as they enjoyed the evening so much.
The first dance was just unforgettable because you guys played Paolo Nutini to perfection! We also thought you didn't do the Dire Straits badly either. ;) All in all we'd have you playing again tomorrow- great entertainers and a definite highlight of the wedding. Thank you!
Just a quick note to thank you and the band for making Chris and my birthday celebrations so much fun. We had a great night and loved every minute. Without exception, all our guests have commented how good the band were.
Thank you again and look forward to coming and hearing the band play soon.
I booked Brando for my husbands 50th after seeing them at the mulberry end of summer party.They never fail to get the whole crowd on the dance floor,and seem to know every song in the universe!!! They are very professional and enthusiastic,and very keen to please which is very refreshing for such an amazing band.
Everyone at our party wanted to know who they were, and many said it was the best band they had ever heard!I would agree with this....Just Awesome!!!
Book them to guarantee the best night of your life!
Everything was absolutely brilliant we couldn't have been happier. Brando played non stop with great style and really connected with our guests who loved, loved them. The dance floor was full to bursting point for well over 3 hours Non stop and the feedback from our guests both on the night and since has been mega positive. What an amazing band - they took our wedding celebrations from great to exceptional.
Wow, what a band!!! We hired Brando to play at our intimate wedding venue and they were truly amazing! A lovely group of guys and very professional yet they kept their laid back style. The sound man was great at ensuring that the music level was at the correct level for all of our guests and the venue. They set up without any fuss and even cornered themselves into the fireplace area in order to give our guests as much dancing space as possible- and didn't we need it! With an already fantastic set list, they were so talented that they were able to play any song requested too. Bando were recommended to us by friends and family and my husband and I would certainly recommend Brando to anyone looking for a fantastic band for any event. Thanks so much guys, you took our wedding from wonderful to spectacular!!
'Brando rocked our wedding. Fact. Besides their now legendary status among our friends, they were fabulous to work with in the lead up and on the day.
It's really simple - book Brando and all of your friends will tell you they're the best band they have ever seen. We have booked them half a dozen times for private parties and they get better each party - something you wouldn't believe possible if you've seen them. The secret is their enthusiasm - they party as hard as you do, and don't believe in curfews....you'll never regret booking them.
Guaranteed great entertainment for clients whether its a party for 100 or 1,000 , a museum event or a party in a tent!
Highly reliable , highly recommendable . They always get the mood of the party just right.
'Brando are a brilliant band who I have now seen a couple of times. Not only are they massively talented musicians but it's so apparent that they love what they do and really put a lot of effort into their performances. It seems really important to them that everyone had a good time and they're brilliant at interacting with the audience, witty, funny and very approachable. They performed at a close friends wedding and were just fabulous, they really played an important part on a very special day. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a band for any event.'
'As my wife and I are from musical backgrounds we were always going to recruit a live band to play at our wedding.Having been independently recommended Brando by separate people, we were very keen watch this band in action. From the first time we saw them perform we knew that we had to get this energetic and exciting band play at our wedding.
They played at our wedding and their vast catalogue of songs were performed with energy, enthusiasm and excellence. The dance floor was swiftly packed with guests of all ages. We have lost count of the huge number of them who commented on how amazing the band was.
It was also a very touching moment when they played our first dance "God Only Knows" beautifully. We will never forget as the song and arrangements were simply stunning and captivated our guests.
This band is technically gifted, fun energetic, and have amazing knack of getting people on the dance floor as soon as they start playing. We would highly recommend this band for any wedding or event. Brando enhanced what was already a special day. We will also continue to watch and support this fantastic live act perform whenever possible.'
