The Satellites are a band of 11 highly successful musicians, all of whom have toured the world with numerous major stars from past and present, from Robbie Williams to ABC, Duran Duran to Keith Emerson, and Kylie Minogue to Will Young.

Their mission has been to take all that experience and enthusiasm from the world of touring, and bring it into the world of corporate events.

The Satellites have gained extensive experience of high-profile corporate events with a broad range of clients including Sony, House of Fraser, KPMG, Next, Ford Motor Co., Yamaha, Pearson Education, Oxford University Press, Berkeley Square Ball, Tesco and Hewlett Packard. They have also performed at prestigious events such as the Berkeley Square Ball, Shane Ritchie's 40th Birthday party, and the Concert for Diana.

A stunning rhythm section, vocalists whose power and range truly excel and a horn section that will blow you away!

Their line up and credentials are amazing including -

Sharlene Hector - Sharlene is a superb singer whose cv speaks for itself. Her credits include Basement Jaxx, Boy George, Brand New Heavies and Corinne Bailey Ray.

Richard Oliver - Richard is The Satellites' anchor man on stage, a relaxed yet dynamic performer with a highly versatile voice. When not singing live, Richard is heavily involved in the session scene, notably as the voice of all the jingles on the Chris Moyles Breakfast Show on Radio One.

Andrea Grant -Andrea is an exceptional singer whose talents are in constant demand by the cream of British pop music. Following a long stint in Tony Hadley's band, she toured the world with Robbie Williams, and since then has toured with Nate James and Beth Rowley. Andrea was also lucky enough to work with James Brown shortly before the great man's demise. She is seen and heard regularly on TV Shows such as Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor as part of the live band, and one can also hear her voice on countless jingles on Radio One, Capital, Heart FM, and many other stations worldwide.

Phil Taylor - Phil has been a core member of Tony Hadley's touring band since the mid 90s, but has also worked live with Kylie Minogue, Go West, Nick Heyward, Curtis Stigers and ABC.

Blair McKichan - Blair is a one-off... his energy and inventiveness on stage are phenomenal, and give The Satellites a unique edge. When not tearing about onstage, taking care of the funk, Blair is a writer and producer. He has had great success particularly with Will Young, for whom he penned ‘Your Game'. He was musical consultant/co-writer on Fame Academy 2003/4, and also co-produced winner Alex Park's debut album. Luckily for The Satellites, Blair will move heaven and earth to be available for gigs, despite the fact that he now spends half the year working in Nashville and LA.
