Hope Street

"More than lived up to our expectations and played a really good set, nearly all of our guests commented on how good they were and if I ever need a band for another function I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to anybody."

The Hope Street Busking Band are a group of lifelong friends, who have been playing together in various forms for 15 years. Starting out busking on the streets of Liverpool, the band quickly garnered attention from passers by and before long were taking bookings for events all over the country


Hope Street are a stripped back three-piece band delivering dynamic performances of popular favourites. With beautiful vocal harmonies and a repertoire tailored for music lovers of all ages, they will provide an atmosphere you won't ever forget! 

Hope Street are three friends who have been playing music together for nearly a decade. They took to the streets of Liverpool in the early months of 2011 performing a vast selection of covers to try and entertain the public and pay their rent whilst doing so. They were a huge hit and it was inevitable that their sheer talent would be spotted before long. After a successful few months busking, the group began providing live entertainment for weddings, functions and in restaurants and bars. So now here you find them and you could have them performing at your own wedding or function!

There's very little cooler and more current right now than stripped-back upbeat acoustic music to get any party going. What's more; you get a portable band who can provide a variety of options for your big day. Indoors or outdoors, daytime or evening, Hope Street can provide the solution for EXACTLY what YOU want!

This is a very unique band and therefore naturally in huge demand so don't delay; contact your nearest local Hireaband office as soon as possible or simply enquire here to find out if the lads are available and to talk to us about your requirements.

The band were brilliant- no complaints what so ever.

Excellent song choices and positive comments received from all guests

Pass on my thanks

Hope Street

Hope Street played at our wedding on 18th August 2018. They were absolutely outstanding! Had the dance floor packed all evening and really made our evening reception one to remember for everyone. So many guests commented on how good they were i can't thank them enough and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top class band for your wedding.

Hireaband were also a great agency to work with providing us with info whenever we needed it.

Hope Street

1. The boys were so kind, professional and great at what they do.
2. Easy to approach and willing to listen to what people wanted to hear.
3. Played some great songs incredibly well and got everyone on the dance floor, for the majority of the night!!
4. Would definitely recommend them for other weddings, thought they were different, exciting and fresh!
Overall loved them and they finished off our wedding day to absolute perfection.

Hope Street

More than lived up to our expectations and played a really good set, nearly all of our guests commented on how good they were and if I ever need a band for another function I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to anybody.

Hope Street

Hope Street were excellent for our wedding, they arrived on time and set up quickly, the sets were just right for what was happening at the time and they played a great selection of songs. Everyone has commented to me how impressed they were with the band. Also a special thank you from us as after speaking with Ste on Wednesday the guys learned our first dance which they had not played before and it was amazing! Thanks guys you were truly outstanding.

Hope Street

We're so glad we chose Hope Street. They were a huge success; everything we'd hope for and more. The lads were so likeable and accommodating, and played the selection that Heather and Mat wanted for their wedding. Guests from all over U.K. and abroad really appreciated their talent. THANK YOU XX

Hope Street

...absolutely brilliant on then night! Their playlist was perfect for us and our wedding guests and their performance was superb. We asked them to learn a song for our first dance which they did and both of us loved the way they performed it. I would definitely recommend them!

Hope Street

We booked Hope Street through Hireaband for our wedding at the end of September. From start to finish the service was fantastic - Lee recommended the band to me based on a brief conversation about the type of music we liked and the type of feel we were hoping for at the evening reception. He was always on hand to answer queries and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The band was just perfect for our wedding - they had everyone up and dancing and they even learned a song that was outside of their usual repertoire especially for us. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful they were! The lads were all absolutely lovely - I'm just sorry I didn't get to chat to them for longer on the night. I would recommend Hireaband to anyone and we would love to see Hope Street again one day. Thanks guys!

Hope Street
