The Great Little Band
The Great Little Band are an one of the most energetic, super-professional and exciting party bands to work in the South West. The Great little Band are an all male 2 piece band, and cover a huge range of music. If you are looking for a fuller sound check out our 4 piece band - The Choons
Featuring musicians of the highest standard, all with several years notable previous experience within the music industry, We are a party band like no other. Each member is extremely gifted in his own right, and the band has invested heavily in the highest quality instruments and sound equipment. Having The Great Little Band at your event is the closest thing you'll get to having any classic band such as The Beatles or Stone Roses play a personal live performance just for you.
What Sort of Music Do We Play?
Our extensive and varied setlist caters for all ages and musical tastes including classic songs by The Beatles The Rolling Stones Stevie Wonder, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon plus many, many more! You can also choose from a selection of popular first dance songs and be absolutely sure that guests of all ages - from grunge kids to granny - will be up dancing and singing all night!
Please Note: Due to their popularity, The Great Little Band are busy throughout the year, and therefore cannot always fulfill requests for learning specific songs. Please refer to their extensive setlist.
What will the band look like?
The band can tailor their look to suit your needs on the night. For black tie events, we can dress formally in black clothes, and for private parties and less formal events we can dress more casually if you prefer. Essentially the keyword here is flexibility! Just specify what your requirements are and we'll have a rummage through our wardrobes!
The band has a two or four-piece line up, and need only a stage space of 5 x 4 metres.
Our show can be formatted in several ways:
You can choose from 2 x 45 minute sets, 2 x 60 minute sets or 3 x 40 minute sets.
In addition, the band can also provide a set of acoustic songs, specifically tailored for drinks receptions or during dinner. The Great Little Band are the only band you need for an all-day event, able to provide music for every scenario, be it a low key acoustic set, or a full on rock'n' roll spectacular!
We are incredibly flexible with all aspects of their show. No gig is too big or too far away. They are very adaptable to a range of room types and always adjust volume levels to suit your requirements.
Our set is lively, exciting, dynamic and full of enthusiasm, and is regularly updated to include current songs. In particular, the band have spent a great deal of time and effort tailoring shows to suit weddings and private parties.

Friends of ours recommended "the Great Little Band" for their singing, harmonies and wide range of songs. We really didn't expect the bonus of the big full band sound as the night went on and the dancing began. They were very modest chaps but we were amazed how Mart could play the drums with his feet while playing his guitar and singing too! A really great nights music".

Our wedding was fantastic and Mart and Dave were the perfect choice for our day.We had a reasonably large wedding with guests of all ages.The lads kept everybody happy with something for everyone and i definitely think they helped to bring all the generations together for a great time.We booked them for an acoustic afternoon set and then a lively show for the evening.Thanks again to the Great Little Band. (and we've booked them again for our next big get together!)

Dear Martin and Dave
We both just wanted to say thank you so much for playing for us at our wedding reception and helping my friends out with the mike for their song etc... Thanks for being so easy going and good humoured to communicate with - we had a really great time and everyone thought you were so amazing. How did you create such a huge sound with just the 2 of you. You really are The Great Little Band!
So THANK YOU!
James and Sara
"The wedding was the most perfect day,and as for The Great Little Band, well I honestly can't think of enough ways to describe how totally incredible you were!!! You made the evening part of our wedding and people have been asking me non stop who you were. Thanks also for all your help. There was never a time throughout the wedding planning process when I didn't feel totally confident that everything was running smoothly where the entertainment was concerned".
Thanks So Much guys
