Wedding & Party Band
est. Hertfordshire 2012
We are The Sam Lewis Band. We are a professional wedding and party band based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire in the South-East of England, UK. We offer excellent live music to cater for a whole host of weddings, parties and other occasions. Having performed alongside some of the music industry's greats such as Rod Stewart and Muse, our experience and party know-how is second to none!
We've built our repuatation over the last 8 years by working closely with some wonderful wedding venues in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Buckinghamshire including, The Priory in Little Wymondley, The Barns at Redcoats, South Farm, Sheene Mill, The Kings Chapel in Amersham, Milling Barn in Throcking and Shortmead House in Biggleswade to name a few.
We are one of Hertfordshire's busiest wedding and party bands and perform at 50-100 weddings per year. As the front-man, I can perform live (solo and acoustic) at the ceremony and reception drinks before bringing in my band for the evening AND DJing in between the live sets.
My guarantee to you is that when you book The Sam Lewis Band, I will always be the front-man for the band at your special occasion. Unlike 'some' agency bands that adopt numerous aliases for the purpose of duplicating themselves, I will only ever be in the one place at the one time.

About The Sam Lewis Band...
We are a 3-piece rock/pop covers band consisting of guitar/vocals, bass/vocals & drums. We dont use any backing tracks and are 100% live.
We offer a professional, friendly and completely bespoke service. We are polite, punctual and flexible and with your guidance, we can provide a complete solution for the music and entertainment at your special ocasion.
Equipment & Certificates
We carry all necesarry A.V. equipment including P.A. System (subs and tops as and when required), radio microphones, lighting, DJ controller (DJ booth where required) and electric drums if the venue requires it. All equipment is P.A.T. certified and we carry £5M public liability insurance.
The majority of our performances are at weddings and having been going since 2010, we have a wealth of experience to ensure that your special day is perfect. We don't have a fixed set-list but prefer to read the dancefloor on the night and select the music accordingly.
Recording & Social Media
With your permission, we will record our performances and publish the highlights on social media. Obviously this helps with our profile and reach but it's also there as a permanent reminder of your special occasion.
Timings & Duration
The band usually performs two 60 minute sets and I will DJ in between these. This tends to work best with most wedding reception itineraries based on cutting the cake and doing the first dance at 7.45pm. Different set times can of course be accommodated too, but may require additional planning and guidance.
All evening performances include a complimentary manned disco to keep your guests entertained in between the live band sets. You're welcome to compile your own playlist on your iPod, iPad, iPhone or computer or simply make a few suggestions and leave it to the experts.
Solo Singer & Guitarist
I am also a professional wedding and party singer and guitarist based in Hertfordshire in the South-East of England, UK; I offer excellent live music to cater for a whole host of events and occasions. Having supported some of the music industry's greats such as Ed Sheeran and Noel Gallagher, my experience and party know-how is second to none!
When We're Already Booked
When I and the band are already booked, I'll be happy to help find you an alternative in the same price bracket. I'll even take care of all of the paperwork for you too. Rest assured, I only book bands, artists and DJs that I know personally. Check out the agency page for some of the acts I represent.

Thank you so much for the most amazing day. We had so many compliments about how good the music was and we look forward to recommending you to friends and family.

Sam Lewis and his band played at our wedding and were fantastic. The dance-floor was never empty and they completely understood what kind of music us and our guests wanted.
