The whole aim of this band is to get people on the dance floor and to generate a party atmosphere. Their repertoire is incredibly diverse, making them perfect for weddings and functions with audiences of all ages.
Their standard line-up is as a four piece, but they can be expanded into an incredible seven piece band for a bigger event, or for just maximum indulgence.
The Sherlocks are made up of professional musicians who have been performing together for the last twenty years. Between them they have been involved in some very high profile events including major record deals, tours and national press, radio and TV coverage.
The Sherlocks have a unique selling point in that they can add a fiddle player to their line up which is why they're often booked for events that require an element of Irish music. As a band, The Sherlocks cut their teeth performing in the Irish pubs across London. That, dear reader is an education in itself!
So here you have a tight, professional wedding and function band with a great approach to performing that are versatile enough for any kind of event and with the ability to raise the roof and keep a crowd of mad Celts happy - a tall order and one they manage beautifully.
The Price quoted with the instant availability check is for their most popular line-up of the 4 piece band (including fiddle player). The band are available though from a four piece to a seven piece that includes a keyboard player, female vocalist and additional fiddle players.
The Sherlocks performed at our wedding and they were super - from all the pre correspondence to the performance on the night. We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests who loved the traditional wedding music combined with a few of our favourite Irish songs. They certainly got the room up singing and dancing!
Thanks again to Alastair and the rest of the group
They were absolutely amazing!! Could not recommend highly enough! They really made our wedding party incredible! Thank you so much!!
We just wanted to say thank you SO much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. You guys were awesome and everybody has been commenting on how great you were! Thank you so much for answering all of our questions in the lead up, particularly in relation to first dance/last dance stuff! And thank you for being so flexible when our speech/end of dinner timings went awry! You were so great eith the first dance and the archway at the end too so thank you! We had so much fun and you guys kept the dancefloor full throughout!
Many thanks again for making the evening so much fun!
What an awesome night! We had such a great party and you guys were instrumental in making it so. Everyone loved your music and commented on how brilliant your performance was, including some ‘neighbours’ several roads away!! We’d said to our near neighbours that they were welcome to enjoy the music in their gardens and we ended up having 1 who came over and commented that he had to come to see you guys in person because he was enjoying the tunes so much! Can’t say fairer than that.
I wanted to say a special and heartfelt ‘Thank you’ to you and the members of your band for providing a wonderful centre-piece for my special birthday celebration. You were all great and added to the fun and joy of the party. I thought you were excellent at everything you played and, most importantly, very easy to dance to!
Thank you all so much. You have helped to create a wonderful memory that will be with me forever.
With warmest good wishes from Elizabeth
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for your great performance at our wedding. It wouldnt have been the celebration it was without you and your amazing band members. All of our guests have said what a brilliant time they had and would recommend you to other people for future parties and events.
We feel sad that it is all over but will keep an eye out at places you’re performing at in the future.
We just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for Friday night. You were all absolutely amazing and really created an unbelievable atmosphere and crowned what was the most perfect day for the both of us. So many guests have commented to us how brilliant you all were!
Vita and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your playing at the weekend. The music and atmosphere were terrific and you bought a lot of fun to the evening.
We are just back from honeymoon, so I wanted to send you a note thanking you for playing at our wedding.
Everyone was commenting how much they loved the band, and you got everyone dancing!
Thanks you for being flexible on the timings with the speeches over-running.
Many thanks again and we are happy to provide references if you need any.
What a brilliant time you gave us all! Thanks so much. I absolutely loved it. Thanks very much too for sending the video – it is lovely to be able to revisit it!
Huge thanks again to you and your band mates!
ust wanted to thank you and all of The Sherlocks so much for an awesome night of playing on Saturday – you must hear this all the time but you really made the evening for us and all our guests have been raving about you!
By the sounds of things you’ll be playing at quite a few events for our friends and family in future, so we hope to see/hear you again soon!
Steph & Tom
A quick note to you and the rest of the band who came last Saturday to Putney for our 40th Birthday. We and the rest of our friends and family had a fantastic time and you kept the room dancing throughout the night. Hopefully you’ll be available for our 50th ! We’ve had quite a few queries about who you are and how to get hold of you so we’ve sent them your way hopefully they’ll be in touch.
Thanks again and Happy Christmas
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so fantastic! The music was perfect! We have had so much feedback from our guests about how great you were! The dance floor was full from the moment the first dance ended to the last song of the night! People have told us they have never danced so much at a wedding before! The mix of music you played picked up the vibe of the room brilliantly and the dj set you played in between sets worked really well for our Hora Loca! Thanks for being accommodating mixing in all the different music types, particularly the South American!
We also loved discovering your blog from our wedding and watching the snippet video of our entrance!
We hope you have a great Christmas and we look forward to hopefully seeing you at a future event or two!
We just wanted to pass on our thanks for the incredible performance you gave at our wedding on Saturday. From the first song (amazing – do you have a recording of this?) to the last, you helped us throw the party of our lives and believe me when I say EVERYONE has been talking about how awesome the music was. We’ll certainly be recommending you to one and all for any future events. Hopefully, once we manage to recover financially from the wedding (ha!), we can have you and the guys play at another event in the future for us.
A huge, huge thank you from all of us here for your tremendous music on Saturday night. You were brilliant! You chose great songs to play which got lots of people up dancing and made the party go with a swing. I had many super comments and feedback about you. We were really thrilled we had asked you to cover the evening. Thank you for talking me through the microphone, too. It worked fine.
We appreciated your fantastic music so much and will definitely pass your details on to anyone wanting a band. Please thank the others for me.
We might see you again at friends’ events. If so, we will come and say hello!
Thank you for the fabulous music The Sherlocks provided for our wedding. From the first dance to the last one that you played – the choice of music was spot on and we had so many positive comments from the guests who loved you. Thank you for creating such a great atmosphere – it was really the perfect evening.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the wedding. You guys were seriously good and lots of people commented favourably on the music. Also a lovely bunch of guys
Thankyou so much for friday, you guys were amazing, all my guests loved you.
What can we say other than a HUGE thank you for Saturday evening. The Queen classic is a big favourite of Dave’s, so it was great to have that as our first dance. We had the best time ever! We have a video of our last dance and I can’t believe how many people are on the dance floor. So many people commented on how fantastic you were.
Thank you also for your patience with drunken guests…I imagine people backing into you gets pretty tiring quite quickly!
…Hopefully see you at another event soon. If not then I already have you in mind for Dave’s 40th in a few years time
Not sure where to start – you guys were amazing!! Just incredibly happy with everything from start to finish. We felt truly blessed to have you there for our special day and you guys were simply perfect. The first dance was exactly what we wanted if not better than the version we sent you….the fiddler during the reception was exactly the atmosphere we wanted.
And the music all night – well you saw the dance floor, ALL night!!! It felt like having friends there playing for us so a HUGE thank you. Please send on our thanks to everyone. Cannot wait to see you again soon….
You guys were just AWESOME, thankyou so much , you need a health warning -The Sherlocks may seriously damage your feet
Mark and I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a huge thank you for everything on Saturday.
We had the most incredible day, and as I am sure you could tell, were big fans of the music! You guys are really excellent and everyone has commented on how fantastic you were, so a huge thank you. At several points I think our entire wedding was on the dance floor, which is exactly what we had hoped for!Thank you for helping us to throw a great party, which there is no doubt everyone enjoyed.
Well what can I say…apart from the most incredibly massive thank you for being so bloody fantastic at our wedding. Bearing in mind I had booked the wedding around your availability I knew you would be outstanding and you all went over and beyond my expectations. The amount of people that have commented on the fabulous band and the fact that there was NO ONE sitting down at any point once you guys started. The dance floor was always full and there was a proper party happening in our tent. I really couldn’t have hoped or asked for any more than you gave and a huge thank you for giving in to the encore. As always we will be pushing you to all our clients and with even more conviction than before. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
A huge thank you to you and the rest of the band – We and everyone else really enjoyed it yesterday. We kept getting the “band is really good – where did you get them from.”
Thank-you so much for making our wedding extra special. You got everyone dancing and having fun, we loved the way you mixed up the music to include classics, modern numbers and ceilidh. On top of that you were really nice people and helpful during the preparations and on the day. Thank-you for posting the photoblog pictures, they’re great! We will recommend you to others and hope that we will get to hear you play again soon.
An apt name for a magical group who take you on a musical journey through different decades and genres. A ride of enjoyment, fun, emotions and non stop dancing from start to finish. If you want a group who entertain and play the music you like and want to hear, then you can't go wrong with The Sherlocks.Thank you guys for an amazing set, my feet are still hurting from all the dancing and jiving.
We just wanted to send an email to say thank you for an amazing night of music on Friday! We had many comments throughout the day about our chosen music for our ceremony and it only got better once you guys started to play! So thank you.
A separate thank you is for allowing Matt and his friends to use your instruments. It was a complete surprise to me – incredible (even though I often tell Matt that he can’t sing…that clearly didn’t stop him) it was incredible.
We had an absolutely fantastic wedding day, a massive thank you for being part of it.
Thank you so much for a great night on Saturday, everyone has commented on how amazing you were. Several people have asked for your contact details so we have passed them on for you.
Paul and I both want to say a huge thank you for what we can only describe as a great performance on our wedding day. You guys were so good, and we loved having you as our evening entertainment. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how fantastic you were! We loved having our first dance performed by you live, it was so special and perfect, and we both thought you performed it really well.Thank you for also being so accommodating with Ryan's performance.We'd happily recommend you for anything in the future, so do let me know if there is anything we can do.
Just wanted to say thankyou for such a great evening last night. Everyone commented on how fab the music was and we really enjoyed ourselves.Many thanks
