Here's a selection of our recent live performances...


Our music ranges from stripped back, soulful ballads for your ceremony and drinks reception - to a full band sound, created live using loopers, for your evening reception guests to boogie to!


Live music for every event...

A Party isn't a party without music, and there's nothing that makes a brilliant night than a fun band.

We play more weddings than any other event, so we've got some experience when it comes to helping create an awesome, memorable day!

We play several large-scale corporate events each year. We'e used to bringing a party to a big crowd!


What they're saying...

Sophie and Mat played for our August wedding and were absolutely phenomenal! Our guests danced all night, everyone was talking about them! a few of our guests have booked them for their own weddings. Thanks for helping us to create the perfect atmosphere for our evening reception.

You guys are amazing! Our wedding really wouldn't have been the same without you. The dance floor was full all night and the quite acoustic set while we had our breakfast was perfection. We're trying to arrange another event just to get a chance to party like that again!!

We can't thank Sophie and Matt enough for playing at our wedding on Friday, they were everything we had hoped for and the dance floor was jam packed all night! Thank you for making our evening so enjoyable, Mr & Mrs Venus X

Sophie & Mat are absolutely fantastic! It’s difficult to describe how well they played and how they created such a good atmosphere! The music choices they chose were perfect for such a range of ages and nationalities! Thank you for making our special day even more special!!!

Absolutely amazing acoustic band. Out of all the bands we looked at for our wedding, The Distance stood out with the way they made the music their own! They learnt our first dance and performed it perfectly! Thankyou again, Mr & Mrs Fruen.

My partner and I across these guys by accident when visiting the Nant hall Hotel in Prestatyn. They were absolutely incredible. Brilliant variety of acoustic songs that blew us away so much we had to ask the manager at the venue for their name. Very talented!!
