4-piece function band: Female Vocals, Keyboard/Bass, Guitar/Bass (with vocals), Drums

5-piece function band: As above, with added Saxophone or Bass Guitar

6-piece function band: As 4 piece, with both added Sax and Bass Guitar

For large events and venues, the following 7-10 piece options are recommended:

7-piece function band: Female Vocals, Keyboards, Bass Guitar, Guitar(with vocals), Drums, Sax, Male Vocals

9-piece function band: As 8-piece, with either added Trombone or Percussion

ALIBI have £10,000,000 public liability insurance and all equipment is fully PAT tested.

The band is fully self contained with a state of the art PA system and LED lighting for the stage area.

A typical engagement would include the following:

•    Up to two and a half hours of band playing time, divided into 2 or 3 sets
•    Pre-recorded iPod music during band breaks
•    Provision of a microphone for speeches
•    The performance of a specially requested song, such as for a first dance at a wedding


ALIBI are often asked to provide the music for a whole event.  Perhaps this is background music during the afternoon and music for dancing in the evening.  This might consist of solo piano for the ceremony and a jazz trio for the drinks reception before the full band takes the stage for the evening entertainment.

Booking the whole package is far more convenient and cost effective than sourcing each element from different suppliers.

ALIBI do not use pre-recorded music such as backing tracks, loops or samples during performance, so when you book this band, you can be sure that everything you hear is being played live.

ALIBI‘s sets seamlessly flow from one song to the next without gaps, thus ensuring a full dance floor from start to finish.

ALIBI always play at a sensible volume that is comfortable for both those on the dance floor and others who wish to converse, listen to and enjoy the music.


ALIBI’s band members are all artists of the highest quality who frequently work alongside some of the biggest names in the world of music.

Due to the session work and touring commitments of their players, ALIBI have a select pool of musicians and vocalists on which to call.  If a certain member is unavailable on a particular date, another performer of equally high standard is seamlessly slotted in.  As only regular members of ALIBI are used (never random deputies), the exceptional quality and tightness of the band is always guaranteed.  This also ensures that the band would never pull out of an engagement at short notice in the event of unforeseen circumstances, such as illness.
