From an acoustic jazz trio to full 7 piece party band

Bob Ludlam Party Bands feature horn sections, singers, and experienced multi-instrumentalists giving them a BIG sound for their popular repertoire of contrasting styles.

Party Band (5, 6 or 7 piece)

We can 'chill' with mellow tunes in the background, or 'pump up the volume' on centre stage with pop and rock classics from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90's to the present. Playing a wide variety of music from easy listening to Rock'n'Roll, through to soul, funk and reggae, our party band can provide an exciting and memorable accompaniment to any event, large or small.

Happy Jazz Walkabout

Our popular 'happy jazz' walkabouts feature acoustic instruments, played with gusto... guaranteed to lighten the atmosphere of any occasion.

James Ludlam

Now back from his successful appearances in Norway and Holland's piano bars, James features highly on all tracks of our Party Band CD, and is now in great demand as a solo pianist/singer for weddings and parties. Check out his versions of "Tail Feathers", "Let There Be Love" and "Georgia On My Mind". Featuring full PA & lights, James can play & sing background music on piano as well as entertain the party with pop, party and dance favourites enhanced by drums and bass.
