Sound Limiters?

Many venues that Charm perform at are now installed with sound limiters and we’re happy to perform in these venues and can comply with the dB rating for the venue.

They are also very pleased to announce that Darren Bazzoni is endorsed by Roland musical instruments and has a Roland V-Drum kit, which allows us to be able to handle any venue with any sound limiter setting. 

They can now actually turn the drums up or down, this also allows them to recreate the correct drum sounds as used on original tracks, be it a 60's drum kit, Wembley rock kit, Jazz kits and much more. Darren says this is the perfect solution for the client allowing the music to be produced to the highest level.

Charm employ only the very best professional musicians.
Faces in the pictures may sometimes differ from that on the night.
This will in no way interfere with the quality of the bands performance.

Locked out of Heaven & Treasure - Bruno Mars

Get Lucky - Daft Punk

Happy - Pharrell Williams, etc

lots more current ones added all the times along with the classics...

Hi all at Classique 

I just wanted to drop a quick line to say that we booked the band Charm for our wedding on September 1st. They were absolutely marvellous and were definitely a highlight of a day containing many highlights. I would not hesitate to recommend them for anybody looking for a great band for their wedding, party or looking for a band to ensure your evening goes off with a bang.

From the moment they started their 1st set the dance floor was packed with people of all ages from 7 years old to 70+ years! The band was happy to play all the songs we asked for. The lighting was great and they got the sound absolutely perfect, which is no easy feat in a marquee. The music was loud enough to have a great party atmosphere however the sound engineer ensured the sound was not too loud that some of the oldies couldn't have a decent conversation. We have received many favourable comments from guests about the band I am sure they will receive bookings from some of guests in the future.

If anyone asks you for a band to party on down to feel free to use our testimony as these guys should get all your bookings, they were that good!

Thank you for recommending them. Tom & Victoria Wright 

Just to say that Charm are one of the most fantastic bands we have ever seen and our customers literally cannot get enough of them, we are sold out every year - thank you so much.  Handpicked Hotel Manager who have booked Charm through Classique for the past 8 years.
