The Night Balloons
The Night Balloons are a four-piece function and wedding band specialising in rock and pop classics from the past fifty years. Covering classic and contemporary popular artists from The Rolling Stones, The Doors and The Beatles to The White Stripes, The Strokes and Arcade Fire, all four members sing lead vocals and harmonies, resulting in a rich live sound and a diverse setlist.
Each member is an extremely experienced musician in their own right. Pembroke (vocals, guitar & harmonica) was chosen as a BBC Introducing Artist of the Month and has performed on live television and radio, and played hundreds of gigs around the UK. Steve (vocals, guitar & keys) is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist with 20 years experience gigging up and down the country with various acts, including The Libertines. Sam (vocals & drums) and Mike (vocals & bass) have toured nationally and internationally together with their previous originals projects, supporting acts such as Johnny Foreigner, The Wombats and The Holloways, as well as playing on the UK’s major festival circuit.
Together they provide an upbeat, dance-oriented experience for any occasion (except perhaps a funeral). Their arrangements are unique, and their performances burst with energy and joyous musicality. The Balloons guarantee a show like no other function band.
