    Summer round up… so far – Christmas is coming!

    Christmas Party band playlistSo it’s been a busy a summer here at the  Metropolis camp! With the Christmas party season fast approaching I though it was about time to give you a round up of the highlights of our summer so far….

    Traditionally, summer is wedding season and it stated with quite a bang! June 10th saw the unofficial launch of our show band for a beautiful Jewish Wedding at One Marylebone in Central London. If you are regular readers of our blog there is plenty more to come on this.  Jessica and Jeremy very kindly let us video occasion and the results are stunning. So much so, that we are launching a brand new website of the back of it. So all the remains to be said is WATCH THIS SPACE.

    Other great moments included a trip up to Sheffield for the Fitness Industry Awards (FIA). Quite a sticky night ensued with over 800 guests packed into one of the North’s premier event spaces. So have you ever seen Party Band Zumba Dancing with several hundred fitness fanatics? You saw it here first that’s all I’ve got to say. Also, the traditional Metropolis circle and Dance off at the end was epic – above is the picture to prove it!

    Last but no means least was just a beautiful 50th Birthday in Beckenham Kent. At a private residence our 10 piece band fitted perfectly in to a Bespoke ‘Pop Art” inspired marque design. Small and intimate with a sushi bar stage left – what more could a band ask for?

    The Metropolis blog will be a busy place over the next few months, so please be sure to subscribe to it.  If you are thinking of Live music  for your corporate Christmas party / function / event why not like us on Facebook or even better follow us on twitter?

    Over and out for now!

      Hear how Metropolis blew everyone away at a Corporate Event

      Video Testimonial From Adrian Pike
      Chief Execuative, Anesco

      Christmas 2014

      Adrian: The biggest thing, I think, lacks today in the entertainment industry, is people that listen. You listened to what we wanted… Everything you did made my life easier. To be honest, once we booked you, you listened to what I wanted and you went on and did it. And you coordinated with my other third party supplies seamlessly. Everybody’s been blown away by the event. And most importantly, my staff just wants to book you again. So that’s not bad. Better accolade for you and me.

Many of you have been curious and have asked us about how we do things in the company. So, what better way to open this up for discussion than having a team member on board.
