Officially the best wedding band in London! The Bears are proud to be celebrating 10 years in business. That's almost 2,000 gigs played 200+ thousand miles travelled 500+ venues rocked 200+ thousand people entertained Millions of notes (beautifully) plucked We'd LOVE to soundtrack your wedding

Aww, look at you two! Congratulations on your engagement! Can we come to the wedding?

Hello, We're The Bears! We love to play Pop/Rock classic party anthems from the 60's to the 10's....tensies!?

With a huge repertoire of over 200 songs we'll light up any room you put us in! In fact we're so confident we'll offer you our 'We'll get your *nan dancing or your money back' guarantee!
*nan must be relatively mobile to start off with. I mean we're good but not THAT good...

We're self-contained - great sound system, stage lights, disco lights, smoke machine etc..

We can play our exhaustive party playlist for in-between sets or you can make your own and we'll turn it up!...although go easy on the obscure Nirvana b-sides though yeah!?

You'll be in safe hands, like all these good people were - BBC, T Mobile, GM, London Boat Show, Excel London, Royal Air Force, British Army, The Dorchester, Savoy, Hatfield House...and most likely the place you're getting hitched at!

The best covers band I have ever seen. Absolutely brilliant!

The Bears played at my wedding 3 weeks ago and rocked. They kept the dance-floor full right from the go. Great band!

The Bears played at my wedding on the 15th June 2012. Making the booking was easy and efficient and everyone loved them! They had everyone up and dancing & made a brilliant atmosphere. Honestly cannot recommend them enough for your event.

The Bears played at our wedding on the 15th September 2012. We honestly forgot that they were a covers band, the tracks were played so faultlessly and seamlessly and the mix of music was perfect for the range of guests we had. The final 30 mins of the set was the highlight of the evening for us with everyone (including my wife in her wedding dress) jumping up and down, they managed to create the atmosphere we'd always hoped there'd be at our wedding. Thank you very much The Bears!
Rebecca Burden
Thank you The Bears! You really made our evening wedding reception... we had a full dance floor and great atmosphere which is exactly what we wanted. Also lots of comments from guests about how brilliant you were!
Joanna Tubbs
You rock guys - The Bears played at my wedding last weekend and were awesome - I'm amazed I didn't break an ankle jumping around like a lunatic to all those great songs in my stupid wedding shoes. We loved you, as did all our guests - everyone has mentioned what a great band you are. I'm just so pleased I happened upon your website and got sucked in by that offer of a dancing bear! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Cat Gribben
Thank you for being a special part of our 'big day'. You totally made the evening, and your Arctic Monkeys cover turned the place wild! Highly recommended, and hope to see you in action again soon!
Alex Night
The Bears played at me and my wife's wedding in December and they were excellent - I cannot recommend them highly enough. Everyone had a superb time and the band were enormously profesisonal and patient especially with my family (some of whom insisted on getting up to sing with them). Thank you Bears!
Jennifer McTaylor
The Bears are the best band eve!

We were lucky enough to get them for our wedding this year and they really made our wedding. I can honestly say that the dance floor was packed all night. A lot of friends said it was the most fun wedding ever and this was largely due to the amazing music. I know our friends have booked you guys up in November and therefore I predict an awesome wedding! Thanks again, Jen and James.
Eddie Brookes
Massive thank you to Martin and the other guys for performing at our wedding on Saturday. Had everyone up on the dance floor from start to finish, great song selection, great performance. Would highly recommend them to anyone.
Emma Thatcher
Thank you to 'The Bears' for playing at our wedding at Eynsham Hall on 2nd August. We thoroughly enjoyed all 3 sets and thought that the wide variety of genres you played was excellent - it meant that everyone from kiddies to oldies danced all night! You were all so friendly and your music really made our wedding! Everyone has commented how great you were! Need an excuse to book you again now! Thank you again!
Francesca Clayman
A Huge Thank you to the Bears who played at our wedding on the 25th August at Latimer House. All 3 sets were Fantastic and the band had everyone dancing and cheering from beginning to end. The music catered for all ages and tastes and really took off at the end of the night, leaving everyone wanting more. My muscles are still aching from all the jumping and dancing! Everyone commented that The Bears are the best wedding band they have ever seen! They are fun and lively and I wont hesitate in hiring them again! Thank you so much Bears for making it such a fun and fantastic night!
Rob Mills
You guys were simply amazing. Thank you for playing our wedding at Ridge Farm on 14th September... absolutely rocked the place. Every since we drunkenly saw you playing a gig in Stockwell we knew you were right for wedding! Great memories - and you played 'Blurred Lines' and 'Get Lucky'!? how many bands can say that!? Thank you.
Lisa Holmes
A huge thank you to The Bears for playing at our wedding on Thursday 3rd October at Great Fosters. Martin, you and the guys are so organised and the playlist was simply amazing. Our guests were up all night and had to be dragged away from the dance floor at the end of the wedding. We heard nothing but great things about your music from everyone. Thank you for making ours such an amazing day.
