Forget Pop Idol - this is Pop Idle - a chance for all those lazy popstars singing into hairbrushes to flaunt their secret rock n' roll alter-ego in front of a live band and a live crowd! Whether you've got the X-Factor or just ex-factor, you'll have the time of your life on stage with your own band and singers backing you.
It's Live Band Karaoke! The name says it all. Karaoke with a LIVE BAND.
Forget those cheesy backing tracks and a bouncing ball on a tv screen - this professional band will provide all the backing, just like the original song - all it's lacking is your voice! Combining the great fun of karaoke with the energy & enthusiasm of a professional live band.
The Pop Idle band can perform a few numbers to warm up the atmosphere, then it's time for you to strut your stuff. Or perhaps you'd like whole set of the band & then a set of live karaoke. The choice is yours.
Croon a ballad by Leanne Rhymes, belt a Bon Jovi anthem, funk it up with a James Brown number or play the cheeky chappy ala Robbie Williams - we'll provide the lyrics and hollers of encouragement to perform your choosen song.
All you need is a set of lungs, and a sense of fun & we guarantee your fans will go wild!
Pop Idle comes complete with a full professional PA, lighting & a 5-10-piece band. Choose whether you want 1 or 2 backing singers and the horn players for the real red carpet performance. Add on a percussionist and extra horns & singers. Make it as Wembley Stadium as you like!
The Pop Idle team will provide disco music for the breaks and to warm up/end your night. We'll make yours an event to remember not just with a fantastic live band, but with the ultimate audience participation!
The Pop Idle band have been performing around the UK at weddings, parties, corporate events, team-building days, receptions, launches of bars & restaurant chains and abroad for the Hilton & Sheraton Hotel Groups.
