Act Profile

The Slaves

The slaves are without doubt the most popular and in demand covers band around today. They have been performing professionally together since 1996 playing all the classics from the 50's through to present day. They are a Guitar based totally live act with fantastic three part harmonies and are all extremely talented in their own right having toured with such artists as Bon Jovi, ZZ Top, Santana and Tina Turner to name but a few and have written songs for Steps, Bonnie Tyler and Starship.

Although they have only been together 10 years they have worked extensively in the Weddings and Corporate market. They have performed for such clients as Remy Martin, Pinewood film studios, Cannes Film festival, Savoy hotel and Honda, and have gained a great reputation for their faultless good time party live shows, and professional attitude on and off stage.

Every time I book the slaves I know exactly what Im getting. Its always important that the band delivers a faultless performance and the Slaves have never let me down and always get the crowd jumping.
Max Menin. walkabout manager

Thanks so much to LMM and the slaves for helping out so much with all the wedding music etc. It was great to get your advice as we knew nothing about bands and music. The Slaves were really helpful and went through what songs they would play with us before the wedding so that on the day we just enjoyed the party.
