Look no further!
MIB have built up an outstanding reputation over the years and continue to hold their status as one of the UKs top bands, not only performing all over the country but also in world-wide destinations such as Dubai, Italy, Brussells, France, South Africa, Romania, Egypt....and Kazakhstan! MIB were privileged to have been the only band to perform in Hyde Park for the Royal Wedding of Prince William & Princess Katherine. This went down in history as the UK’s largest ever gig, performing to 300,000 people!
The band have an exceptional wealth of knowledge and experience, using top UK session players who play for artists such as The Spice Girls, Take That, Robbie Williams, Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse, James Morrisson, Beyonce, Gloria Gaynor, Jools Holland...to name only a few! This means that when you book MIB you are guaranteed outstanding musicianship, from players who have played all over the world to audiences hundreds of thousands of people!
As a band, MIB have been booked to play for clients as prestigious as (to name a few): Coca Cola, Pepsi Max, OK Magazine, Lloyds TSB, Marks and Spencer, Waitrose, HSBC, ABN Ambro, IBN, Boots, KFC, Red Letter Days, Stanley Tools, The Sun newspaper, Mitsibushi, Yamaha, The Daily Mail....
The band pride themselves on playing a hugely diverse range of music, and understand that not everyone wants to hear the same old songs that the majority of function bands play! While featuring all the classics from the 50s,60’s,70’s and 80’s, the band also include a more modern selection of music from the present day, which means MIB can cater for audiences of any age!
MIB realise that every event is different, therefore we can tailor make our line-up to suit most sizes of room / audiences / budgets.
We currently offer:
5 piece band (female vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, drums)
6 piece band (as 5 piece plus one saxophonist as standard, or male vocalist)
7 piece band (as 5 piece plus dynamic two piece brass section)
8 piece band (as 7 piece plus male vocalist)
9 piece band (as 8 piece plus an extra female vocalist)
10 piece band (as 9 piece an additional saxophonist)
11 piece band (as 10 piece plus a percussionist)
12 piece band (as 11 piece plus an extra male vocalist)
(These line-ups are flexible, eg. if you would prefer your 7 piece band to have a saxophonist and a male vocalist that’s no problem!)
This means MIB can be booked in full as a 12 piece band! This is not to be missed for high level corporate events and larger weddings!
In our experience, we find that the band is at its strongest when we can let the playlist ‘flow’ according to how the evening is going. This means we can really tailor the set to the mood and tastes of your guests! It also means we can structure the setlist best according to which line-up you’ve booked (for example if you’ve booked the 7 piece band perhaps we’d add in more brass-heavy songs). So, we’ve developed this set-list as a rough idea of the options we like to be able to choose from. It’s best to stick to this rough structure that our MD has designed, and leave us to be able to tailor things on the night, however if there’s any songs you don’t like (or any missing that you love!) please do let us know and we’ll put something together especially for you.

‘Sera Golding and the MiB Band took our international awards gala dinner to a new level. From the opening Buddha Bar set during the welcome reception to live walk-up music through to a sensational dance act followed by a ‘must-dance’ set by the full band, everyone’s experience was enhanced by our choice of band. Our event attracted 500 guests from 51 countries with representatives of all the top non-alcoholic drinks companies including Coke and Pepsi. We have had dozens of comments about the quality of the whole event and particularly the band.
Deciding to add ‘live’ walk up music for the awards presentation itself was a first for us, and the decision proved totally right. The ‘stabs’ ranged from intense to amusing – our Managing Editor walked up to the Mission Impossible theme! – and caused one of our guests to remark that it was ‘just like the Oscars’... On the sheer entertainment side of things, check out this band. They are awesome.
On the business and event organising side, I have to say that Sera Golding and the MiB Band offer tremendous value for money, backed by the highest levels of professionalism and heaps of clear and concise communication. It was great to run an event where such a key element was not on the worry list. The guys were so up for it and so on top of their game that several people asked if we it was ‘our usual band’, thinking that we must have worked together before !
All I can say is that we can’t wait to work with this band again.... ‘ Bill Bruce, Beverage Innovation Awards
Just to say many thanks to all the band for playing at our wedding. Lots of comments from our friends saying they thought you were fantastic and really enjoyed the music. Thank you. Meryl Berger, Wedding
