About The Hands

Full Description: 

The Hands are an acoustic band with a difference. Combining two guitars, percussion, double bass & saxophone, they offer a fresh delivery of live music through their arrangements of classic songs and modern hits with a warm feel good ‘Mumford & Sons’ style throughout each performance. Originally beginning as an acoustic duo, the musicians expanded by teaming up with their professional percussionist, double bassist & saxophonist to create the full band and haven’t looked back since.

The Hands musicians have performed in countless function bands on stages worldwide, plus TV appearances, tours, and session work for major music label artists. After countless gigs within different bands, the lads decided to collate their musical skills and experience, and form one solid line-up to deliver powerful sets at every performance.

From their wealth of experience, The Hands know what songs work best live and which numbers will bring your guests to the dancefloor or get them singing if they are performing their roaming sets. What’s more, by carefully constructing setlists with numbers from different decades, we make sure that guests of all ages enjoy the performance.

Their previous client list is very prestigious as they have performed for the likes of Google, British Airways, Formula One, HSBC, Jaguar Land Rover, Natwest, Air Canada, Cancer Research and many more. They have entertained famous individuals such as Fred Sirieix, Ross Brawn & James Caan, plus they have performed at luxury venues including Kensington Palace, All England Tennis Club (Wimbledon), The Mulia Resort (Bali, Indonesia), Chillon Castle (Switzerland), Algarve International Circuit (Portugal), Isola Del Garda (Italy), The Shard, The Ned, The Ritz, The May Fair Hotel, The Langham, Claridge's, Hotel Cafe Royal, Hampton Court Palace, Palm Beach Casino, Kensington Roof Gardens, Grosvenor House, The Ham Yard Hotel & many more.
