Fronted by top session singer, professional dancer and songwriter Belle Erskine and backed by a four-piece band comprising drums, bass/vocals, keyboards/vocals and guitar/vocals they’re guaranteed to get your guests up and dancing with a mixture of classic hits from the jazz, soul, pop rock, funk, disco and rock ‘n’ roll genres.
Although young, Bellissima have an admirable track record supporting stars like Amy Winehouse and Jamiroquai at the Clapham festival and providing the live music entertainment for Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Ball in 2005 at The Kensington Roof Gardens. They have performed at venues including The Dorchester, The Grosvenor House, The Savoy, Claridges, The Hilton Park Lane, The Mandarin Oriental and The Lanesborough and their blue chip corporate clients have included the Disney Corporation, Goldman Sachs, Rothschilds, KPMG, J P Morgan, Merrill Lynch and Price Waterhouse Coopers.

Singer Belle’s CV is packed with vocal credits on projects featuring a glittering array of stars including remixes of Shakira, Will Young, Arctic Monkeys, Kelly Clarkson, Dido, Talk Talk, Coldplay, The Killers and Joss Stone. Between them members of the band have appeared at prestigious venues including the Wembley and O2 arenas and have performed in the Middle East, USA, South Africa, Bali, Mexico and throughout Europe and the UK.
The band provide a high quality PA and lighting system, and can provide background music at no extra charge on iPod/CD player before their performance, during their breaks and after the performance has finished. Bellissima generally play two one-hour or three 40 minute sets, but times can be altered to suit the function.
