The Alarms


Offering boundless energy, charisma and sheer talent, The Alarms are undeniably one of the hottest properties on the UK wedding band scene. Hailing from Yorkshire but in demand across the length and breadth of the country, this is a band who never fail to satisfy.

The Alarms are a classic 4-piece line-up of vocals, guitar, bass and drums. The energy they put into every performance is outstanding and has clients flocking to book them and, in many cases, book them again! They have bags of experience and know exactly how to please even the most demanding of crowds. Enquire Now

The Alarms North West Band

It's clear to see in their performance that these lads love doing what they do and know that they're good at it. They are completely without arrogance though and as a full-time professional band they work extremely hard to perfect their act and keep on top of the game.

Specialists in a wide variety of events, from weddings to parties to corporate events, here's a band who have built a commanding reputation. Playing in excess of 150 bookings a year this is truly one of the UK's very busiest bands.

If it's raw energy and youthful charisma you want in your band then you really need look no further. Every booking gets two 1 hour long sets of top-drawer live music and when the band aren't on stage they can handle your DJ requirements too, meaning you're whole evening's entertainment is covered.

The depth of their repertoire defies their years. It's a bit of an over-used phrase in this industry, but it's true here that there's something in there for everyone of all ages and tastes. Every song a floor-filler, you'll find instantly recognisable hits from the 50's right through to the very latest tunes.

Consider your dance floor packed all night!

When my wife suggested I had a 40th birthday party I had my reservations. I had visions of sausage rolls and lines of girls doing ?Ooops up inside your head?. ?Why don?t you get a band?? she said, ?Where will I find a band that play the music I like from the 60?s through to today? I replied??. The answer was The Alarms! Without doubt the BEST covers band I?ve ever seen, the amount of comments I had on the night and since from friends has been amazing. Thanks guys for putting on such a show and not a sausage roll or cheesy dance in sight! Jon Cockcroft, Party, Leeds

I can?t wait to see them again ? please please please book this band and you will not be disappointed. Hey Jude will be remembered as our wedding song because of you. Sophie Burns, Wedding, Coventry
