  • Comfortable with corporate event schedules including early soundchecks
  • Flexible and friendly - they believe in giving you the best possible entertainment

The band captures the best of rock and indie while combining it with polished modern pop and a song book that stretches back through the entire history of popular music. They aren’t afraid to get off the stage and onto the dancefloor. Past gigs have included ‘dance offs’, rap battles and unexpected appearances from the guests themselves! You never know what might happen next! 

Bringing the sound and excitement of an epic concert that can be scaled to suit any venue, The Rivers don’t just turn up and play the songs. They do everything in their power to create a live show that jumps out and grabs you - from belting out anthemic choruses to getting stuck in on the dancefloor.​

From the first contact, right up to the day itself they will do everything they can to help everything run smoothly, and they pride themselves on being approachable and professional. Each one of them takes a huge amount of joy from their performance and it really shows! They aim to play every set like it is their last!  

With every band member able to sing they are capable of a huge sound. They also add extra keyboards and drum samples when needed to fill out the sound and give you the best experience possible. 

For that extra special live sound, you can add in a horn section or individual sax player. Their audio samples have some options including this for you. 

If you need additional music during the day The Rivers can provide a range of options, from an acoustic duo in the sun to your favourite song as you walk down the aisle. They can also offer background solo piano, or if you book the brass section finish the night with a sax and DJ performance!​

The Rivers were brilliant as a band for our wedding! They kept the dance floor full all night and the energy in the room high. They played a fantastic version of our first dance. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending them

Michael and the band were fantastic. Energetic and a wide range of songs to get the party started. Well done to The Rivers!

The Rivers

Lots of fun - Michael and the guys turned up on time, set up without fuss and then played two blinding sets of music. None of the usual cheesy wedding songs in sight either, which is exactly what we wanted. Thanks guys - would definitely book again!

We wanted to pass on the biggest of thanks to The Rivers, who really were a highlight of our special day. Not only did we have a great time, but we have had endless comments from our guests about how brilliant they were. The dance floor always seemed full and both of us felt like we never really left once they started playing! It was so great to have our first dance played live and then have lots of moments of interaction for the guests too. Thank You!

We’re so glad we had The Rivers play at our wedding last month. They really know how to get the party going and keep people on the dance floor! Every song was a hit and they kept the energy levels high all night. We all had such a great time! They’re great musicians and to top it off they’re all really nice guys. Thanks so much for helping us have the most memorable day!

The Rivers

From the moment we were introduced to the band, they were incredibly friendly and understanding to our lengthy song requests. Fortunately, the band also let us know they would judge the crowd on song choice, which clearly went down well with everyone as we had only positive feedback from our guests saying how much they enjoyed the band’s performance! The band showed great energy from start to finish, and the DJ segments also went down very well. Would highly recommend The Rivers for another wedding, or any other event/party.

Absolutely amazing! Everyone was raving about the band for days after, they were really great and knew what songs to play to please the crowd too. Can not be happier! 10/10 would recommend.
