The Big Blowout Party Band


Weddings, Special Events, Birthday Parties, Balls, Charity Events and Street Parties.

For more than eleven years The Big Blowout Party Band's reputation for making any party an exciting and memorable event has spread far and wide.

From a marquee perched on the rocks at Pirate's Cove in Cornwall to a grandiose hotel on the shores of Lake Windermere, from Celtic Manor in Wales, to The Assembly Rooms of Bath The Big Blowout Party Band have been an outrageous hit with their audiences.

And yes, we were the first band to rock the Great Hall at Longleat House but we have performed just as happily in many a marquee on the lawns of homes in Bath and throughout the West Country.

And yes again, this is THE band that gets any audience up on their feet dancing the night away.

Speared-headed by the powerful front line sax duo of Mark Archer and Craig Crofton, The Big Blowout Party Band whips up a performance that will groove you, move you, thrill you and make sure you PARTY.

As a special extra included in the fee, we can provide a top class jazz duo to play some relaxing chill-out jazz music while your guests are enjoying the wedding dinner or just settling into their evening with a glass or two.
So, you only need book this one set of top class musicians to provide the complete soundtrack to the whole of your special day.

The demo tracks represent a typical selection of diverse array of tunes as played live and for real by The Big Blowout Party Band themselves.

You can clearly hear from a sample of 12 song in 16 minutes how The Big Blowout Band first set launches with the thunderous party tune of 'Last Night 'Bottom theme,'),followed by the sixties boogaloo of 'Sassie Lassie,'some Salsa with 'Tequila,' and classic rock with 'All Day and All Night.' To keep you groovin' some Stones 'Miss You,' a dash of Calypso and the classic Madness' 'One Step Beyond.'

The second set kicks off with a wild take of 'Peter Gunn,' The James Bond theme saxska style, some Blues Brothers 'Sweet Home Chicago,' and 'Minnie The Moocher,' and add amongst many others in some classic JB's funk 'Shake Everything You Got.' At the finale we also remember to include a slow dance with the sublime 'The Look Of Love.'

‘Thank you so much for making my day so special. Not only was it lovely having you there but the sax sounded wonderful and very me. Thats what many of my friends commented on when they heard the sax.It is also lovely as we can hear you playing throughout our wedding video.’ [PIC] ‘Blowout’ played at our wedding in May 2009 and were a stunning success. During the evening meal, perfectly weighted dinner jazz drifted amongst our diners, invoking the classy ambience we'd hoped for. With dinner and the speeches over, the band struck-up and we were into two sets of powerful, dance-inducing renditions of many classics. Even our more dance-shy guests were drawn toward the visually and acoustically impressive spectacle of ‘Blowout’ going at full tilt. Without hesitation or exaggeration, we'd say that Blowout crowned a fantastic event in a way that we've not seen at other weddings; our guests are still talking about the performance months after the wedding! I'd warmly recommend ‘Blowout’ to anyone who wants hassle-free arrangements and great sounds, performed by talented musicians who really do play for the love of it.'
