Act Profile

Draft

Draft is a well established, tight and friendly band with more than 15 years experience of playing parties, weddings, venues and events.

They are incredibly helpful and treat all clients and each other with the utmost respect and as such are lucky enough to have an incredible following of friends and fans in the Home Counties area, and have on occasions drawn more than 400 people to the venues we're they are playing to party the night away.

They are indeed a party band, play easily recognisable, fun, anthemic songs and enjoy mixing in with our audiences. They keep their set list up to date with the most popular new music but also ensure they have the all round classics in there too hopefully guaranteeing that you will know most of the songs they play, if not all.

Draft focus mainly on the indie, rock, pop genres but also like a bit of the mid-90's rock scene too from time to time. They can offer both a party set or a more rock/rock n roll focused set, or perhaps even a mix if that's what you prefer.

The band can also provide a DJ on request and can cater for events of up to 2500 guests.

Testimonials

Graeme, I canít thank you enough for saving the day at the Music Festival with Bill Wyman. I had never considered we might need to be inside (for rain) and outside (for sunshine), without your management skills the event would not have been so successful.

Daft, as always were absolutely brilliant and I look forward to booking you again soon!

L. Stanier, Event Management and Organiser, May 2011

"Seriously, you guys were awesome! Brilliant! You'll have to play one of my parties. Have you got a card?"

"Your interaction with the crowd was perfect, and you showed the up most respect for Matsu the drummer (our new DMD)! I have had a few people ask where they can see you again so I've circulated your details."
Michelle, Panasonic (Europe).

Draft are a local professional bunch of masculine male musicians with a squeaky-clean lady friendly image and a clean-cut next-door-neighbour following of young good-looking entrepreneurs and their gorgeous girlfriends. If you like modern alt-rock music perfectly pitched for an affluent audience and sumptuously rehearsed and presented then Draft is for you.
Neil Mach, Staines Wordpress

I'm sixty, and don't know many of the songs they perform, but... this band is something else! Draft are an outstanding covers band. I've booked them twice and both times now they have simply 'blown the audience away"!
John Clarke, Client

The lads were an absolute pleasure to deal with and put on one of the best shows we have seen, where Graeme gets his energy from is beyond me!!
Graham Loughrey, Entertainment Secretary Camphill Social Club
