Act Profile

Acoustic Candi

Acoustic Candi are a fantastic Acoustic Duo who perform a huge repertoire ranging from the best of current Chart and classic Pop, Rock and Indie songs to timeless Jazz and Blues.

This pair of super talented musicians can cater for most styles of events and musical tastes weather it be light background Jazz music at a corporate event to create a stunning atmosphere or to pick up the pace at an evening party creating a sing along to current Chart, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s pop, rock, soul, motown and dance hits.

This duo of professional touring musicians pereform at over 100 events each year with their party band and have between them performed at some of biggest festivals in the UK, on Radio and TV and international tours, performing with Paloma Faith, The Script, James Morrison, Craig David and more. Their abundance of live work experience shows as you get that exceptional quality performance you would expect from seasoned musicians.

Acoustic Candi have performed at some of the greatest venues in the UK including The Roundhouse, MCFC, MUFC, Rock In the Park, Glastonbury and more.
The duo is primarily a 2 piece band (Guitars/Vocals or Vocals, Guitar/Piano) but additional musicians can be brought in to give you a bigger sound whilst keeping the ‘unplugged live lounge’ vibe.

If you are looking to add more live music to your event lead singer Maria Jordan can perform a laid back Solo Jazz/Blues set for earlier or their party band can perform a lively and stylish evening set.

A professional DJ service with additional lighting is also an optional extra with this versatile duo giving you the option to cater for your whole day and nights entertainment needs (additional charges apply).

Will Kay-Shuttleworth- 30th Birthday Party, Leeds-

“Thank you so much for playing at my wife Beth's 30th birthday in Leeds on Friday. Many of the guests have been asking after you since then and many were much later home on the night than they planned as they were too busy dancing! The choice of songs, the quality of the playing and vocal - it was all excellent, perfect for the party and made the night that much more special. You were also very friendly and helpful before and after the party and great to have around on the night. Thank you!”

Colin and Steph, Wedding

”Thank you guys for performing at our wedding. you were absolutely amazing and we can't thank you enough for creating the perfect atmosphere at our wedding. Our guests were blown away by you and we will not forget that night for a long time.”

Selina Bradbury- Wedding Client
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to The Live Loungers for providing fantastic entertainment during my wedding ceremony and reception. The songs you played during my ceremony including my aisle song were truly magical, you really captured the moment with your beautiful tones and in contrast as requested more uplifting songs for after the ceremony in the gardens really lifted the atmosphere and we received many compliments so thank you. One of my guests have actually contacted you to arrange for you to perform at their wedding early next year! The Live Loungers are friendly, professional and get on with organising and moving from room to room themselves - there really is no stress or worry - which is certainly needed on your wedding day."

Rob & Amanda- Wedding Client
"You guys were incredible. Absolutely amazing!"

Lynne & Pete- Wedding Client
You guys were amazing. Thank you for learning our first dance, you did a beautiful job and had me in tears all the way through. I can't tell you how amazing Maria's voice is, you have to hear it for yourself. The demos don't do you justice. The interaction between the duo was great and their energy rubbed off onto our guests who all commented on how brilliant they were."

Jenni & John- Wedding Client
"Thank you to you both for performing an amazing set at our wedding. All of our guests loved the selection of music and you guys are fantastic musicians. Honestly you don’t get to hear such good quality live music often and we feel blessed to have had such talented musicians at our wedding. Thank you!"

Adam & Leah- Wedding Client

"Thank you to Acoustic Candi for making our wedding day perfect. They performed amazing unplugged versions of our favourite party tunes and everyone was singing along at the wedding breakfast. I wish we’d have booked them for the rest of the evening too. Absolute class entertainment and musicianship."

Manchester United
"You and your guitarist were amazing. Having had a very particular request from our Chinese guests who wanted the ‘English experience’ you put together an amazing set of the best artist from the UK. They absolutely loved it and you were both fantastic. We can’t thank you enough for your professionalism and working with us to exactly meet the clients requirements."

Gay Pride
The event was great and you were by far the highlight of our day! Maria has an absolutely fantastic voice and I don't think I've ever seen such a huge crowd before.

Alex-Sywel Aerodrome Air Expo
Amazing!!!!!! We certainly want them back next year. Very kind, listened to exactly what you wanted and delivered a cracking performance. True brilliance! All our customers had a great evening and really liked the range and choices of songs. Thanks Alex

Becky Dixon- Cash For Kids (Key 103’s official charity
Thank you so much for singing at our Key 103 Cash for Kids Event last night. The feedback was amazing and you set the tone of the evening perfectly. Could have kept you on stage all night and everyone would have been more than happy!! Thank you xxx

Jennifer- Key103
Having seen Maria perform a stunning set at our annual Jingle Ball, I recently hired ‘acoustic candi’ for a Key 103 listener party and the feedback from all guests was excellent. The selection of songs was spot on and the dance floor was packed, I wish I'd have asked for an extra 1/2 hour!!

Stephen- St Catherine's Hospice
