Act Profile

The James Brothers

The James Brothers are a live acoustic duo made up of Simon James on vocals and acoustic guitar and Chris James on vocals and percussion. Chris and Simon have been singing together for since they were children and come from a family of singers and entertainers. The James Brothers also offer solo and trio options to suit your party, event or wedding. Book The James Brothers to play your wedding, private party, corporate event, pub or club.

As Simon and Chris are brothers their harmonies are the thing that sets them apart from other acts. They are smooth and blend perfectly.
Simon is a great guitarist and Chris is the beat man that makes people dance on percussion.

The James brothers play cover tracks in the Rock/pop/soul/dance genres. From The Kings of Leon to The Black Eyed Peas to The Monkeys to Coldplay and of course many more. They can play an energetic set that will keep a party dancing all night or a chilled out lounge style set with smooth harmonies from the brothers.

The James Brothers also play live as a three piece with an awesome beatboxer Phillipic.
The beatboxing adds a hip hop and dance groove to the music that is perfect for a party function. Phillipic bridges the songs with amazing dance tracks recreated with only his mouth.
It is like someone has pressed play on a dance record!

Thanks Simon and Chris for your recent performance at our wedding. The sound quality was excellent and all our guests commented on how well your played. Your performance was full of energy and enthusiasm and you kept the party going fantastically well with a mix of classics and modern day covers which appealed to all our guests. It was a real pleasure having you at our big day.

Thanks again - you did us proud!!

Hi Simon and Chris
Just a short note to thank you for a fantastic contribution to my 60th party last weekend. Everyone who fed back commented on the great music and singing you guys performed.You have a fine repertoire and great harmony. I know you said being brothers assists but you still have to work at it and do it on the night. Thanks for being flexible and trust you enjoyed my walk down my singing memory lane. You would not be surprised to know that I continued 'walking' after you left till they called time.
Very happy to offer endorsements etc at any time.
Keep a date for me in 2022!
