The Bright Sparks are a professional party and wedding band, with a reputation for high energy entertainment.
This band are specialists in providing exactly what is required for your event. The versatility of the band has been proved time and again as they have played at events as varied as corporate shows, company balls, weddings, birthday parties (from ages 18 – 60!), universities, ski resort opening nights, and nightclub parties. It’s not unheard of for the band to play an intimate afternoon acoustic show for a quiet garden party, and then carry on to play a storming rock set to a packed out club room later on that evening. This band really can put on an unforgettable show in any situation.
The overwhelming response is that of delight at the way the dancefloor is filled from start to finish by the energy, enthusiasm and skill of the band. The most consistent remark the band receives is that clients have never seen so many people up and dancing at a live show. When this is combined with the stunning sound of the band, tight vocal harmonies, the professional look and a repertoire that has never failed, its easy to see why The Bright Sparks have caused such a stir at every show they’ve played.
They are young but very experienced having played for countless weddings, parties and corporate events throughout Europe. Band members have also played European tours with top chart acts and appeared on TV in shows such as Later With Jools Holland, Party In The Park Live, Top Of The Pops, GMTV, CD UK, T4, The Saturday Show, Rise, BBC Hall Of Fame and The Richard Blackwood Show. That two ex members of the band now play with chart topping band The Feeling is testament to the quality of the musicians.
Band members have also played with 10cc, ELO, Brian May & Roger Taylor from Queen, Midge Ure, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Shania Twain, Matt Cardle, Go West and Will Young.
The Bright Sparks play a wide range of music from the early 60’s to current hits, delivering stunning renditions of music from Artists as diverse as The Beatles, Queen, Elvis Presley, The Clash, The Beach Boys, Stevie Wonder, Simon and Garfunkel, The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Cold Play, Robbie Williams, The Darkness etc…. This makes the band perfect for weddings and parties of all kinds where a wide range of music is required to satisfy differing age groups and musical tastes.
The band plays as either a four or five piece band and everything is played live. The Bright Sparks do not use backing or sequencing, believing that a live performance is essential to give the flexibility that makes for a great night’s entertainment.
The Bright Sparks will take the time to discuss the requirements you have for your event to make sure that everything goes perfectly on the night. They dress appropriately for each occasion and are equally at home playing for the most private party in a Country House as playing for a Freshers Ball.
They provide their own high quality sound and lighting systems, and will provide music on CD in the breaks. The band usually perform within a period of three hours however playing times/sets etc. can be negotiable.

"A huge thank you to the Bright Sparks who were absolutely awesome last night. Without exception everyone has said what a fantastic band they are. Many thanks and hope to have an excuse to use them again." Sarah Jones - Wedding
"Thank you very much indeed for providing such a first-class performance at the party. Our client commented on what a mindblowing performance it was and how it really did set the tone for the event. We were particularly impressed by how you combined professionalism with talent - something that is very hard to find in a band - and for this reason we will definitely be in touch with more bookings in the very near future." Oliver Maunsell, Managing Director -Manhattan A List
"Bloody good group, fantastic players, excellent to dance to, great to listen to. Their music at our party was appreciated by young and old. We can't recommend them highly enough." Jonathan & Allison Royds-Jones
""During my time as entertainments officer I booked The Bright Sparks for the University Freshers Ball, and was hugely impressed with the professional and extremely entertaining show they put on. The playing and singing is of the highest quality, and the band really know how to entertain. They played in an area of the venue which had been fairly empty until they took to the stage, however, by the time they finished their set the venue was packed and the crowd were shouting for more". Ed Frith - University Of Westminster Student Union
""The Bright Sparks performed at the Area 51 Christmas party this year and played their excellent set to a crowd of several hundred. I can happily say that they are one of the best bands we've ever had at the venue - their set is full of energy and fun, and never fails to keep the audience dancing and singing along from start to finish. I cannot recommend them highly enough we would book them every week if we could!" Kim Harris, Manager - Area 51, Harrow
