Act Profile


Need a cool-talking, high-walking, ever-fizzing band . . .?

With a Little Green Bag of songs that range from Elvis, Beatles, Stones, Queen to the razor-sharp 70s disco of Hot Chocolate, to new young guns like the Kings of Leon and the Scissor Sisters, LOADED with rock your world, wedding or function!

'A dog's b******* of a covers band' - Neil Morrissey

Loaded were formed in the spring of 2001 and have played over 600 weddings, parties and corporate functions since, including shows in France and Portugal . . . Fronted by charismatic singer Andy Bareham, they are a four-piece rock band who play a wide range of 60s to 00s hits. LOADED cover everything from Bill Haley to the Arctic Monkeys and beyond. Nothing obscure, just really well-known songs!

Another great night of music and dancing with our favourite live band – Loaded!

Thank you again for bringing the party to life and getting everyone up and dancing – as you always do!

Please pass on our thanks again to the other members of the band for being great musicians and all round really nice guys! It was a pleasure to have you all join us for the party.

Warmest regards


-Robin Griffiths

"LOADED exceeded all expectations with their performance. We have received comments from all of our guests (of all ages) on how great they were, many saying they are the best function band they have seen.

The First Dance song that we requested couldn't have been performed better, and set us up for a perfect party!

Andy was incredibly professional from our initial enquiry right up until the end of the night, and was a pleasure to work with. He arrived in plenty of time to ensure everything was ready, and they even played some extra ad hoc requests from our guests at the end of their sets.

There are so many bands out there to choose from, and I spent weeks before selecting Loaded. We honestly couldn't have chosen better, the standard is fantastic and they are extremely talented. We really can't recommend them highly enough.

More than happy to give some more feedback if it helps.
Thanks again and hopefully get to see you perform again in the future,"
