Dynamic, charismatic, highly entertaining and one of our most re-booked bands; e2 are guaranteed to make any party come to life!

One of Classique's most constantly re-booked bands!

The band's line-up features only the best virtuoso musicians, all with considerable experience of playing at the very highest level - their CVs include Jamiroquai, the Lighthouse Family, Top of the Pops, Universal Studios, Chaka Khan and Gabrielle.

Since their formation, this superb six to ten piece band, featuring 2 front female singers / two male singer and 4-6 excellent musicians (+ 2 extra brass - sax and trumpet) have become synonymous with the highest quality entertainment. They are used to playing with high profile artists, appearing live and in the studio as well as on TV and radio.

Their versatile repertoire includes the irrepressible grooves of 70s funk and disco classics, as well as Motown smashes from the 60s, the best of 80s and 90s pop, right through to current hits, to keep your guests dancing all night long.

For themed or corporate events they can individually tailor shows to meet your personal requirements, with available features such as extra sound and lighting rigs, staging, props, corporate banners and logos - in fact, anything you might need to make your ideas become reality can be arranged.

e2 take a sound engineer as standard to all performances no matter how small, but will hire in extra engineers for larger gigs if required, as well as larger sound or lighting rigs.

The band perform 2 x one hour sets and can also offer an additional full DJ package between sets to keep the party moving, but also include laptop background music as standard if the DJ is not required.

E2 EXTRA OPTIONS

Lighting, Sound & the e2 Crew
Lighting - e2 can offer a fully choreographed and directed lighting show which can include corporate logos and party banners.

Sound - When booking e2 you are guaranteed only state of the art equipment. Sound systems available start from 3.5k, suitable for a smaller audience, and go up to 10k, suitable for 1000 or more guests.

Crew - The e2 crew are all at the top of their respective fields (sound engineering, lighting & band logistics) and they are also sensitive to your event. They will always arrive on time, in smart attire and be able to liaise with event organizers and venues to help ensure the smooth and discreet running of your event.

Brass Section
In keeping with the calibre of musicians in e2, the e2 brass section are all top-drawer players. Awesome solos, great dance moves and fantastically tight playing are all hallmarks of this remarkable section.

Individually seen with acts such as Gabrielle, Craig David, Macy Gray, Amy Winehouse and Jamie Cullum, and on TV shows such as The Johnny Vaughn Show, The Big Breakfast, Pop Idol and The National Lottery Live, this ensemble of brass players are exclusive to e2.

Dinner Jazz
As you would expect from a band of top musicians, musical virtuosity and versatility come as standard. Therefore e2 can offer Dinner Jazz, an unrivalled jazz duo, trio or quartet. Dinner Jazz is not only sophisticated and chic, it also sets a mood and atmosphere that only live jazz can create. Whether for a reception, or during dinner, this choice cannot fail but bring a touch of class to proceedings.

DJ
Every great party needs a great DJ!

In many ways a great DJ is as important as a great band. After all, the band doesn't play for the entire evening. A good DJ should be the anchorman for the event, compering and guiding the evening as well as maintaining the vibe and atmosphere between the bands sets.

In fact, when you think about it, a great DJ is vital.

Not only are the e2 DJ's great, but they also have the advantage of being part of the e2 team, working with the band night after night. This close working relationship offers an unrivaled understanding between band and DJ ensuring a seamless transition between sets.

Along with the e2 DJ comes a stunning, state of the art dance floor lighting rig that will create a stunning and exciting atmosphere.

Line up:

Standard 6 piece band: 2 x lead vocalists, drums, bass, lead guitar, keyboard
8-10 piece band: as above plus brass players (usually saxophone and trumpet) and extra vocalists

I just can't thank you enough...xx

Corporate Family Fun Day - Alton Towers

-----------------------------------

Hi Nicky

I just wanted to extend my sincere thanks to all involved in making Saturday night such an amazing sucess.  I would be grateful if you could pass on my comments to all the acts.

Dara was fantastic!  He was loved by the audience - the only critisism I heard was that they did not want him to stop!  He pitched his act just right, and was perfect at keeping the awards running along, and to time (almost unheard of).  It was also fantastic that he mingled with the guests for ages after the awards, talking to them and having photos taken - this really made the night special for so many people (including me actually!).

E2 were probably the best band I have heard live - and again, this is not only my opinion, but of others I heard talking.  Their choice of songs was just right to get everyone dancing.  It was a pleasure dealing with Jim and the rest of the band.  I would definately recommend them to others.

Phil, as always, was perfect in his choice of tracks.  He brought a great end to a wonderful evening.  The combination of Phil and the band worked really really well.

I have heard from guests that they felt this was the best awards dinner to date (and I agree!).  Thank you to you and Mac and the acts for helping to make this so.

A very happy Christmas and New Year to you all!

Very best wishes Katie - corporate client - 1400 guests - ICC Birmingham

I would like to thank you for the part your band played in making the National Sales Awards 2006 such a success.  We have received many congratulations from guests and sponsors wishing to thank everyone involved in producing such a fantastic show.

Fani Tosh from The ICC, Birmingham.
Top band! Thank you! We will be in touch again!

I would like to thank you for your wonderful performance and professionalism throughout the event. I will have no hesitation in recommending you for further events.

Penny & Craig from Harlaxton Manor, Lincs.
Performance was excellent and very high standard all round. The whole process of dealing with the band was a totally pleasant experience!

Krish & Shefali from Claridges, London.
We had to write to tell you how wonderful the band were and how they were complimented by all who attended. All our guests danced from start to finish. Thank you!

Joanna & Simon from Wood Norton Hall, Worcs.
E2 were fantastic. The way they got the guests up from being just 4 or 5 to being a packed dance floor! We are so glad we chose a good band, it made all the difference
