Act Profile

Beat Street

Beat Street was set up by drummer & musical director Steve, bringing together a collective of the finest players encountered during his career - a mixture of top-notch session musicians & singers, Conservatoire music degree graduates and tutors, who together form a simply formidable band!

100% live (no backing tracks or sequencers) and complete with male & female lead singers as well as a brass section, this accomplished band plays an awesome unique set of classic funk, soul, motown, disco and rock 'n roll tracks performed seamlessly alongside soulful modern r 'n' b, house anthems and fresh chart classics, from the world�s leading artists.

Performances are energetic & enthusiastic, and with years of experience packing dance floors, guests are guaranteed to be dancing & singing along from the first song to the last!

What really makes the band stand out so much from others though is their attention to detail - they know guests at a function want to hear their favourite songs performed as they they know and love them - and no other band sounds as close to the original songs as Beat Street!

As well as having literally thousands of appearances under their belts at private parties, weddings & corporate functions (including numerous household name companies) at some of the nations premier venues, between them members of Beat Street have: toured with The Supremes, Tony Hadley, Boney M, Sonia, Will Young, Gareth Gates and 911; performed with Jackie Graham, Joe Dolan, Canteloup and King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys; recorded on albums for Bizarre Inc, Mother & Gold Blade; played at the world renowned Reading Festival; appeared on live BBC & Kerrang radio sessions as well as on the DJ Spoony show on BBC Radio 1; and lead singer Clarke Bailey appeared on ITV's X-Factor in 2006, making it all the way to Simon Cowell's infamous 'boot camp'!
