Act Profile

Time Machine

Time Machine are the 'house band' at Kelly Brook's Steam and Rye Night club in Bank, Central London.

A 4-piece party band comprising Carl on lead guitar, Laurence on drums, Spencer on bass, Dan on lead vocals and guitar - with a wealth of experience, Time Machine will rock any party or wedding alike…

Over the 10 years they have been working together they've hand picked a set list of crowd pleasing classic rock songs - from contemporary hits such as Kings Of Leon 'Sex On Fire' and The Killers' Mr Brightside' to Bryan Adams air guitar classic 'Summer of 69' via the funky grooves of James Brown's 'I Feel Good' - this band don't waste a minute of performance time with 'average' song choices.

Formed in 2003 under the sizzling heat and party atmosphere of the French Riviera, Time Machine are the perfect antidote to the typical slick, stale and soul-less function band. A dynamic band
specialising in Rock, Pop & Soul from the 60's to present day, they
are made up of four professional musicians who have performed
throughout the UK and Europe with household names such as Bon Jovi, Simply Red, Billy Bragg, Fairport Convention, Carl Barat, & Rebecca Ferguson.

They tailor their set to every event, accept requests (in advance!)
and can perform instrumental Jazz music on request. Musical director Spencer Brown performs with both electric and upright bass and has a formidable reputation on the UK Jazz circuit. If you have a favourite song you'd love to hear then they'd love to play it for you.

They perform with passion, conduct themselves with total
professionalism, and are guaranteed to get the party started wherever they go. Don't just take our word for it - look at the ringing endorsements and recommendations they've had.

Testimonials

The band was absolutely brilliant, I don’t think I've ever seen a group of such professional performance artists play at a wedding - it was certainly more like a gig! and we were lucky enough to have a solo acoustic performance from Dan of a beautiful love song! It was magical!

If anyone needs a live band for a party THIS IS YOUR BAND!

Thank you so much,
Mr & Mrs Downton.

Hi.
Could you please pass on our sincere thanks to Time Machine who recently played at our wedding. They did a fantastic job and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Many thanks
Paula and Andy

Just wanted to say that was an absolutely top quality evening's entertainment you provided on Saturday night. It was just perfect. Everyone was asking who you were and commented how fantastic you were. Also, top job with the first dance - you have no idea how much I was dreading it! - but it was great, and I actually really enjoyed doing it!
Also, a quick mention to the lead singer - he was brilliant and his dedication to Lucy for Brown Eyed Girl was great.
Top night had by all!!
Cheers again
Dave

You guys went down a STORM at our wedding thanks so much. We've had SO many comments from the guests and it really made the evening part of our special day.
Thanks again..

Thank you so much for playing absolutely brilliantly at our wedding at Penshurst Place on 24th November. You created a great atmosphere, got people on the dance floor and kept them there – great choice of songs. Thanks for learning Chelsea Dagger and doing "I would walk 500 miles.." – we love them and now think of our wedding every time we hear them. Hey Jude went down a storm too – we had a big laugh when the photos came back of us singing! So many people have commented on what a fantastic band we had and we will certainly be recommending you – actually we have to the venue already for their future wedding bookings. Hope that's ok!
A very happy New Year to you all!
Best wishes
Sarah and Chris

I just wanted to say a huge thank-you to you and " Time Machine " for a great performance at our Xmas Party last Friday. You really are a fabulous band and created the perfect party atmosphere, probably our best party ever.
Thanks again, all the best.

Dear band,
We're writing to say thanks for the wonderful set you played on the evening of our wedding at Wiston House. It made for a brilliant end to an incredible day. Everyone from the youngest person (the pageboy trying to breakdance) to the oldest (the grandmother who refused to leave until you finished playing) thoroughly enjoyed your performance. Your last song (Hey Jude) and the impromptu mass dance to it will stay with us for a long time!
Many thanks again for helping us to have they day of our lives and whenever we are booking a band in the future yours will be the first name we think of.
Kind regards
Becky and Stuart

Hello,
We just wanted to pass on our sincere thanks to Time Machine who played at our wedding on 11th April, they were absolutely fantastic! They made the evening brilliant, we haven't danced so much in our lives. They did Take That's 'Greatest Day' for our first day which was perfect. All our guests commented on how great they were and lots have asked for contact details. We just wish we had an excuse to throw another party so we could hire them again!
Best Wishes Claire & Richard

We would like to thank you and all of " Time Machine " for providing such an excellent evening's entertainment for our wedding on 23rd August. The music was fantastic, just what we hoped for, and enticed all the guests on the dance floor over the course of the evening – jostling for space at certain times!
All our friends and family have commented on the quality of the band, in many cases, as the most memorable part of the wedding! Most importantly, we had a wonderful evening, in no small part down to the music and dancing, so many thanks. We are very glad you were able to travel up to Suffolk to help make it such a successful party. Would happily recommend " Max & The Mustangs " to anyone else looking for an excellent live band for their party.
Best wishes,
Kate and David

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the great performance the green lights gave at our Wedding on 15th April. Everyone thought that you really made the evening and both Nic & I were delighted....I had aching limbs and sore knees the following day to prove it!
Thanks again
John

Just to let you know that " Time Machine " were wonderful on Saturday night. To get music right for a combined 18/50 birthday party was tricky, but they managed it magnificently
Thanks
Anna

Sorry it has taken so long for me to write to you, but July has been nothing but crazy! Anyway, please pass on my thanks to " Time Machine " - they were fantastic!! We had nothing but compliments. They definitely made the party! Thanks for all your help, and I'll be sure to recommend them to anyone who asks,
Che
