About the 88s

We are four friends and musicians who love playing classic party hits. We play rock’n’roll, hip hop, Motown, pop, rock, RnB and everything in between, with our own unique blend of energy and musicianship.

Between us we have decades of experience both in the UK and abroad, and have played gigs in venues ranging from the local pub to Brixton Academy and a stadium in South Africa. So whether you’re having a birthday party at your house, planning a wedding reception, or booking an act for your corporate event, we’ll be a perfect fit.



The music we play ranges from 50s rock’n’roll to current hits, all with an extra helping of energy. Our mashups and medleys will help make sure your dancefloor stays full till the end of the night! The player below contains a very small selection of our current repertoire – to see a full list of songs we play, please click the song list button.


Thank you so much for playing a fantastic set at our wedding. It was just perfect and all our guests loved it. It was the perfect way to celebrate with dancing all night (albeit a very hot night!)

You were great!

Clare & Jake - wedding

The 88s blew the roof off, and made the night for everybody. They were all lovely, personable, and totally professional. We had so many people come up to us at the end of the night saying what an amazing band, where did we find them etc etc… Big thanks also to Tom for giving up his time to help out with the choir, and the sound for my son’s acoustic set. He was a star… and just a bit nifty on the guitar as well 😉

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you to the band for being amazing. Friday night was absolutely wonderful.

I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did and I hope we can work together again in the future!
