Unplugged are a professional acoustic act with many years of experience on the wedding, corporate function and party circuit in Bristol, Bath, and across the Southwest. The duo are impressing audiences across the country with their unique take on rock and pop classics such as The Cure's 'Friday I'm In Love' or Norman Greenbaum's 'Spirit In The Sky'. Their quality acoustic set also takes in 80's pop-rock like Soft Cells 'Tainted Love' and Bon Jovi's 'You Give Love A Bad Name', as well recent indie hits like The Killer's 'Human', complemented by selections of a more laid-back vibe including faithful renditions of Beatles and Beach Boys standards.
Such a large and varied repertoire of popular songs, delivered with skilled guitar interplay and augmented by frontman Alfie's natural charisma and instinct to entertain, make the duo's twin acoustic guitar sound and vocal harmonies ideal live music for a wedding or birthday party, equally suited to a two hour party performance or an intimate after dinner session.
Whatever the reason to hire a live band you can count on the versatility of the duo's sound and on their professionalism. The duo provides their own quality P.A. system, engineering and lighting rig, as well as a comprehensive and tailored DJ service playing a mix of classic songs from over the decades through to the present day.
The duo can offer great entertainment for all sorts of occasions with a great upbeat sound. For lovers of a stripped-down small-band feel, the duo fit brilliantly into any event. For those who demand quality live-music without pre-recorded backing tracks they are a perfect guitar duo to entertain you and your guests. Please take the time to listen to the the music we've supplied on the site, review the testimonials and be certain that you can book with confidence and know what to expect from these dynamic and versatile musicians.

Alfie and Chris judged the day perfectly with low key music throughout the afternoon whilst people ate and then switched to something livelier later in the evening when people wanted to dance. I had lots of comments from guests about how good they were and a couple of guests have already hired them for their own parties later this year.
Thanks again to the guys for another two brilliant days in store at Marks and Spencer. This is the third year in a row we have booked them and they continue to show why this is so. They arrived efficiently, dressed smartly and worked professionally throughout the two days. I also love their selection of songs, and will be looking forward to seeing them again!

Unplugged stepped in at the last moment to replace my initial booking who unfortunately had to cancel. Alfie and Chris proved to be a great hit for all my party guests who without exception commented on how good they are.If you want a talented duo who give exceptional service you will not go wrong with these guys. Superb!!
Your style and personality were absolutely perfect. Many of our friends have commented on the music they heard in the evening, and have since booked the Unplugged Duo for their parties. We had an amazing day and the icing on the cake was having you guys play for us in the evening.

Extremely pleasant and approachable guys who integrated well into my group of guests. They played really well and arrived in plenty of time to set up so as not to disturb us. It was great to have a band who also set the volumes at the right level so it was atmospheric but we could still talk. Lastly there was no clock watching, so they played enthusiastically right up to the time the venue insisted we stop. A great act and a great couple of guys who I would most definitely recommend.

Unplugged played a live acoustic set and provided a DJ service at our wedding. They were extremely professional both in the lead up the day and on the day itself - despite having to work with us remotely in Dubai via email to organise things and then enduring some pretty horrendous weather during set up on the day.
Unplugged made the effort to find out what kind of music we liked and did a great job both playing a live set (their version of The Killers - Mr. Brightside, learned specially for our first dance, was fantastic) and providing an excellent mix of tunes later on in the DJ set.
Unplugged were professional, prompt and personable throughout and I would definitely recommend them to others looking for a talented musicians for an event. Many thanks for helping make our Big Day so special.

"Top acoustic act. Two contrasting personalities combine to give you a fantastic and entertaining evening out"
"When Alfie and Chris turn up, you know you're going to have a good night. The simplicity of their arrangement, the skill of delivery, the choice of material and the quality of their sound leave most other acoustic duos in the dirt. You can't beat a bit of Bristol stage-banter either!"
Jay Marsh, Promoter at The Selkirk, London.
"Unplugged are a fantastic acoustic act. Our Cricket Club booked them for a Dinner & Dance & the guys did a brilliant acoustic set - lots of well known covers, older ones for the wrinklys & plenty of new stuff for the kids. Followed that with a DJ session as we danced the night away. Looking forward to seeing the duo again very soon."
Simon Gould, Chairman. The Old Down Cricket Club.
''This duo offer a superb range of cover versions which will appeal to all ages. With a highly polished quality of performance, Alfie and Chris will guarantee you a wonderful night of music.''
"Unplugged played a great mixture of music and kept us happy and dancing! Everyone enjoyed them and we would book them again in the future."

"The duo were excellent. They provided fantastic live music and were then very happy to provide a disco later on in the evening. They were really good at providing the correct atmosphere and we have had some really good feedback. I would definitely recommend them."
"Unplugged were a brilliant choice of band to have at our mini festival, the quality of music, the entertainment value and professionalism all came through. All our guests enjoyed the music and we would definitely use them again!"
