Hire Live Band Manchester | Function Band

From festival stages to steamy club nights, elegant balls to fun corporate functions – The Midnight Cats are a live band from Manchester, ready for anything.

We’re an experienced working band, playing our irrefutably contagious brand of funk, pop and soul across the North West and beyond for a diverse array of clients; from companies laying on sparkling corporate hosting, to promoters keen to get their venues jumping.

What do you play?

When it comes to our set list, your wish is our command. We’re a funk band. We’re a pop band. We’re a soul band. Manchester’s vibrant music scene is a huge inspiration to us, which means that our repertoire is diverse and eclectic. Expect the latest pop chart toppers, a sprinkle of classic soul and more than a squeeze of funk to ensure we tempt feet onto the dance floor. Keen to hear how we sound? Just play our samples.

From Adele to Dusty Springfield, Taio Cruz to Bruno Mars, Pulp to Jackson 5, our raison d’etre is to make your guests dance. We’re a versatile live band, which allows us to learn a few new numbers and cater our set list to your requests and our audience. Get in touch with a friendly band member now to discuss your special requests.

Can you DJ?
Absolutely! With our own equipment ready to go, we love to take audiences from live sets into a night of dancing to their favourite tracks. Whether you have a clear idea of the genres you’d like to hear, or would like our resident bassist Joe take the reigns with his danceable mix of pop, disco and old school hits, our DJ service is affordable, fun and flexible. With our own lights and equipment we’re happy to set up from scratch or work with your venue’s equipment. Contact us today to discuss your needs.

What about something quieter?

We can help with softer sets too. Not every event calls for a night of funk-driven revelry and dancing. Our live band plays softer acoustic sets at functions in Manchester and further afield, providing professional background music during meals and functions as both a duo and a trio.
