Britain’s longest-serving, hardest-working, most frequently-booked party band
— The Guardian

The only function band in the UK to have played more than 5000 gigs (and counting!), whether we’re performing for charity or for royalty, singing anything from ‘Moves Like Jagger’ to Mick Jagger himself, we’re always the life and soul of the party.

Absolutely fantastic!! Everyone loved The Dark Blues – perfect entertainment. A number of people said that it was so good they thought you must have been playing CD’s of the actual artists at times!

We pride ourselves on only working with top notch musicians, and our secret weapon is lead singer Annabel Williams. Vocal coach to the stars, she's responsible for polishing up the voices of the future on ITV’s The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, and has worked with everyone from Amy Winehouse and Katie Melua to Michael Bolton.

We were both ‘blown away’ by The Dark Blues’ performance last night… The accumulation of all your experience enables you to read any audience and somehow know exactly what to play and when to play it! Your choice of songs was perfect and ensured a dance floor packed with smiling faces all night. This is what made the party for Tracy and me. The way you built the atmosphere through to an amazing finish was just brilliant and the party ended on a massive high.

People always ask how we’re able to conjure up a bespoke set that’s perfect for their guests - call it extra sensory perception or years of experience - it’s what our clients say sets us apart. Whichever song band leader Nigel Tully MBE launches in to from their catalogue of hundreds of generation-spanning hits (often without warning!), the band are so tight that they're always right there with him. The Dark Blues never go on stage with a prearranged list of songs or set list, so you can just sit back, relax and let Nigel work his magic. 

We love what we do, so just let us know if you want some more! Whether it's an hour of romance or two hours of non-stop floor fillers, we're more than happy to oblige...
