Star UK Party Band
9 - 12 piece band
One of the most popular bands on the UK party circuit, Star is an international show band in the broadest sense of the word. In the last couple of years, they have cruised across the Atlantic aboard the world famous QE2 and worked in Portugal, France, Holland, Germany, The United States and The Middle East. The band performs regularly for the most prestigious events and glittering occasions in the country’s top venues.
They have entertained members of the Royal Family - including Prince’s William and Harry - and other European Heads of State, leading politicians and statesmen. The band also entertained members of "The Royle Family" as they recently performed at a charity ball, organised by members of the cast of the BBC TV sit-com. As well as being in great demand for corporate events and charity balls, Star is one of the most popular bands at weddings, bar-mitzvahs and other private parties for audiences of all ages.
The band boasts a state of the art computer controlled ‘intelligent’ lighting set-up, including (for the technically minded) the latest HPE Mini-Goldscans, a crystal clear but powerful sound system and a star cloth backdrop. This top grade equipment complements an ever changing stage show which features choreographed dance routines and a wide range of superb costumes. The band can dress in ‘black tie’ for a formal opening set and the next minute appear in the most outrageous Latin outfits, with colourful suits and the girls in Carnival costumes, complete with head dresses. Every evening with Star culminates in a New Year’s Eve style climax, complete with exploding confetti cannon.
The band plays a wide repertoire of music featuring classic songs from the past four decades and the best of today’s chart hits. The current line-up has been together for more than five years and their experience, musicianship and sheer professionalism have combined to produce a band which is widely acknowledged as one of the best of it’s kind in the UK. Star always appears as an eight-piece band featuring two girl singer/dancers whose lively approach and dynamic vocals enhances their superb stage show.

I am writing to thank you and the band for the wonderful job they did at my daughter's wedding on Sunday. Everyone was full of admiration for them. Unfortunately being busy with saying goodbye to our guests at the end of the evening I did not get a chance to thank them personally and they were gone by the time we finished seeing to everything. Please convey our grateful thanks to each member of the band.
Very many thanks again.
Natalie Harris (Wedding - London - 29th March 2015)
