Act Profile

The Rise

The Rise are the UK's most entertaining function band. They have been delighting couples, wowing clients and entertaining guests since 2010 with a lively party packed full of hits. This tight quartet of professional musicians deliver an engaging rock n roll show fronted by a captivating entertainer, consistently exceeding expectations with their live performances. This is a show you simply must see.

These consummate showmen know the importance of giving their all in every performance, whilst many bands will stand on stage singing the hits, The Rise perform songs you know and love, bringing them to life.

When you want to entertain your guests with a show that guarantees a party The Rise are your only real choice. Their repertoire spans genre and time, combining an entertaining indie-pop sound with a dynamic performance style. From Olly Murs to The Foo Fighters, there’s a party with something for everyone. At the heart of the show is a raft of hits from the 21st century, culminating in a pumping finale that will have everybody screaming for more. The Rise are much more than a hundred-mile-an-hour hit machine. They pride themselves on the planning of every show, working closely with you to ensure everything is perfect.

This top party band is a preferred supplier for such prestigious venues as The Eden Project, Polhawn Fort and Lusty Glaze and although the band has its Cornish roots, The Rise are not limited to performing in the South West. They love to travel and we can be regularly found at weddings all over the Cotswolds, Home Counties, London, the Midlands, up North and beyond..The Rise are available internationally.

Maybe you're marrying the love of your life on a totally unforgettable day where you waltz gracefully through your first dance? Magic! The Rise can play the first dance for that extra wow factor.

Perhaps you're celebrating an important birthday in style and you want to ease the guests into the evening with cocktails and something a little different? Good idea! Check out the matinee option where Keiko Rise play as a wandering acoustic quartet.

Or are you trying to impress the guys from the office with a show stopping Christmas party and want to kick things off with a bang? Perfect! The Rise can ensure that your dance floor is heaving from start to finish.

Saw you guys last week at Perran sands , was a DJ for 11 years working with many truly great bands ....................... Wonderwall going into the theme tune to the fresh prince of Bel Air has to be one of the most inspired musical choices in history ....... BRILLIANT !!!!! Your kings of Leon and Reef is absolutely perfect in every musical definition.

-David Hayton-Hill

We saw The Rise at Haven last weekend. AMAZING! I cant believe how good they were. We have never seen anybody like them. They even played my special request which was so nice of them. The singer has such a stage presence and bags of confidence. I have never heard so many people singing along at once. Its a show we wont forget in a hurry!! Thanks

-Penny March

Hi Guys, thanks so much for making our wedding party so much fun, you were awesome. The music was fabulous, sorry about my random backing vocals though!! You were so good that we bribed you to stay for longer and you were able to play for our first dance with 5 minutes notice! We can't recommend you to everyone enough.x

-Helen and Robin

You totally made our wedding on the 14th Aug. Thankyou so very much. Best band we've ever seen. Everyone has been raving about you guys. Just wish you lived in Kent would have you playing at our pub!!

-Jennie & Richard Chapman

Saw you at Perran Sands tonight and really enjoyed both of your sets again as we saw you earlier in the season too. Keep up the great music xxx

-Lesley Goodman

These guys rocked the 7 Stars in Helston recently. A Great front man with professional backing, especially the guitarist. They were the best band in Cornwall, now they’re the best in the South West. Some original music could take the band to the top.


We saw the band in April at Haven Burnham on Sea and we had such a good time. I dont think we sat down all night, we all thought they were brilliant!!!!

-Nicola Moss

A band that oozes stage presence. They have a fantastic and varied repertoire, all of which is executed in a manner that could grace any "professional" venue. The guys have a passion for their music that some mainstream bands could take a valuable lesson from. I've no doubt that anyone who attends one of their gigs, parties or weddings will leave feeling totally in awe of these guys. Worth every penny!

-Steve Cross

Saw these guys at a wedding a few weeks ago and they really rocked it!! They made it such a special night for the bride, groom and all the guests, had everyone up dancing within minutes...and long into the night, unforgettable! Great musicians and a really great frontman, Thanks!

-Jodie Franklin

Hi Guys.

We saw you at Helen and Robins wedding in Devon.
You really made the night special, your Jazzy Jeff/ Oasis mix was just great amd really unxpected, and the King Of Leon/ Flo Rida mashup was just banging! It was really nice of you to let Helen get up and sing a few songs with you at the end. Good luck for the future. xx

The Rise at a wedding reception in Falmouth 6th August 2011... Kept us entertained and dancing all evening with a brilliant range of songs - cheers guys, awesome band!

A MASSIVE thank you to the rise for their AMAZING performance last night at our wedding. Our guests were well impressed and have the bruised and aching joints to prove it was a great set. Thanks again, Sally and Paul xx Aug 2011


Thank you for all your help with the arrangements for our wedding, The Rise were great and we all had a super time." Wedding April 2011 Suzanne and Matt

"No problems - We had a great time last night and really enjoyed the band. I have paid the deposit this morning for you to confirm the booking. I am happy with the approach and the flexibility and I have asked the band to play a couple of songs for us so I guess they are improving their set list too.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help so far."

Thanks so much guys, we had such a lovely evening. People didn't stop dancing all night!!!! It was truly a reception to remember. I think the bridesmaids fell in love with your singer. Perhaps we can see you live again one day. Thanks again, Jessica and Tony, July 2010

Hey guys, Just a quick note to say thanks again for such an amazing night! and for letting my husband sing a song with you ( I was not as embarrassed as I thought I would be, don't tell him I said that ;-) everything you played was just perfect and thanks for learning all those songs we asked for at such short notice, it was so sweet. Good luck for the future, John and Sarah, August 2010
