Birmingham Bands

Birmingham. The UKs’ second city. Often maligned, people who live here know that it has a lot going for it. With an industrial heritage second to none, we have a canal network which has seen substantial gentrification in the last two decades, hand in hand with a completely transformed city centre boasting a myriad of retail […]

New music samples

Music keeps playing, even in lockdown. Even though we’re not gigging, we can still record new demo songs, even though it is remotely. Rest assured, we sound as good playing together live as we do as these recorded versions of “All the small things”, Blink 182, “Blame it on me”, George Ezra, and “Teenage dirtbag”, […]

Coronavirus observations

In the words of Ray Davies, singer / songwriter of the Kinks, It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world”. OK so he wasn’t singing about having to postpone wedding reception parties and live wedding band hire music and entertainment providers rescheduling their 2020 bookings due to Coronavirus, but 2020 is indeed a strange world.

Live Band or DJ

Live band or DJ?

It’s the age-old question for wedding couples – should I hire a live band or a DJ? On the surface, it’s an open and shut case. If you’re a clubber, you hire a DJ. If you’re a gigger, you hire a live band. Horses for courses, right? DJs are for people who want […]

Latest gig review

When you provide entertainment for as many gigs as Four on the Floor band, your memory of one wedding reception booking sometimes merges into another – it’s possibly something to do with the fact that all of the gigs we play invariably end with:

  • Our vocalist singing from the middle of the dancefloor
  • Everyone else on […]

Indie summer

 

Not Indian summer – indie summer.

Who doesn’t love a summer wedding? Long, hot days, too much alcohol, uncomfortable clothes…what’s not to love? So while it’s true that we Brits don’t “do” summer very well, we’re pretty good at doing weddings. They don’t go on for days, the food is usually pretty damn good, and unless your […]

We make the rules. Mostly.

We love Dewsall Court. Nestling in the rural environs of Hereford, it’s a little outside the West Midlands, but as we performed there at the wedding reception of Emma and Matthew recently, we thought we’d mention it. Yes, we know this website is “Wedding band West Midlands”, but we do perform at a lot of […]

Wolverhampton wedding? Why not!

Wolverhampton wedding wonders

Wolverhampton has some hidden gems – you’d be surprised. There are some aesthetically pleasing and well laid out public parks and a sprinkling of almost-stately homes which hint at the citys’ pre-industrial past. Rather more modern but no less impressive, the Ramada Park hotel hosts many wedding receptions each year, and once Rachael and […]
