Profile

The Sparks are a professional functions, party and covers band, with a reputation for high energy, up-tempo entertainment. Based in London, the Sparks are specialists in providing exactly what is required for your event.


The versatility of the band has been proved time and again as they have played at events as varied as corporate shows, company balls, weddings, birthday parties (from ages 18 - 60!), universities, ski resort opening nights, and nightclub parties.Its not unheard of for the band to play an intimate afternoon acoustic show for a quiet garden party, and then carry on to play a storming rock set to a packed out club room later on that evening.


The most consistent remark the band receives is that clients have never seen so many people up and dancing at a live show. When this is combined with the stunning sound of the band, tight vocal harmonies, the professional look and a repertoire that has never failed, its easy to see why The Sparks have caused such a stir at every show they've played.

" The Sparks were amazing on the night, great music and so many people have commented that they danced a lot more than they normally do as the music was so good! Thanks so much for all your help. "

So many people were very complimentary about them. We all really partied! It was bound to be good with some Welsh guys in the band! The sound was excellent and the music spot on! Perfect for a 21st Party. "

" We had a fantastic wedding, and The Sparks were a huge part of that. It was a pleasure to have them be part of our wedding day and we have had countless positive comments from our guests - young, old and all in between! It is a testament to how great they were that the dance floor was packed from start to finish! Apart from the fantastically played music, there were so many stand-out moments, from Baywatch, to the wedding party turn rave! Thank you also for the service which Gigz provided. It was clear, easy, efficient and professional from the beginning, with great communication throughout. We are so grateful to you and The Sparks for helping to make our day so memorable and entertaining. We have already passed on the details to a number of friends and we are sure more will ask. "

In the lead up to the wedding you made sure that all our favourite songs would be played, and went the extra mile to integrate the band's set with the dance performance by our cousins. On the night, all of our guests - young and old - were coming up to us saying how much they enjoyed the music, and the atmosphere that they created was just incredible. From both of us, please accept our sincerest thanks for helping make our night so special. "

Many of our friends commented on how great the band was, and we would have no hesititation in recommending them. GigzManagement's process is clear and helpful, with a good website to enter and update information and were helpful on the phone too

" A word of thanks to you and “The Sparks”. They are a very good band and warmed to the occasion. Their flexibility and variety of music got everybody in the party mood and (added to the effects of the alcohol) inhibitions were totally discarded. Better than just playing, the band seemed to be enjoying themselves too, so they created a fantastic atmosphere. Tom’s 21st Birthday celebration was a great success - and for all age groups. Thanks again.

" I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the Sparks for a job well done. The guys performed brilliantly on Saturday night. I’ve already received many great comments about the party which is a credit to you all. Their musical skills kept everyone dancing and singing like idiots until the wee hours and there were many sore voices and feet on Sunday morning which is always a sign of a good party! In addition to the positive comments about the music I received feedback about the Sparks polite and professional behaviour. The hotel staff and other contractors both mentioned this to me. Please pass on my thanks to them. I wouldn’t hesitate in booking them again.

" We have had so many fantastic comments on how amazing all three acts were on the day. The Avoca Ensemble set a lovely atmosphere for the champagne reception in the garden and then during the meal in the marquee. Superb. Then Paul followed on with exactly the right background music leading into the first dance. And the party started. Paul kept the dance floor full with all the favourites and knew precisely what tunes to play to keep everyone going. If the whole party was in Paul's hands it still would have been brilliant. The Sparks - fantastic. Can't think of what else to say! All the guests said they were the best band they'd ever heard at a party, and some are serious party goers. Finally, thank you so much for putting the musical entertainment together for us - it was so easy, stress free and it all went exactly to plan. We will definitely be using Gigz again.

Their soundcheck was completed without any hassle and they were completely undemanding on us as we sorted out other aspects of organising the party. More importantly, their performance was awesome and they had everyone jumping all night. They were happy to fit in around some cabaret and speeches that we wanted to include. They played all our favourite tracks and would definitely recommend them. Also, the whole booking process with gigzmanagement was very straightforward and pain free. Will definitely use gigzmanagement again for our next big party.

They were all really charming guys who couldn't have been more helpful and it was clear from the packed dancefloor how much everyone loved them. Since our wedding we've already been to two others and I have to say, although I'm biased, their bands weren't anywhere near as talented as The Sparks. Please pass on our thanks to them for making our night such a great one.

" We had a really fantastic day. The Sparks played a belter. We didnt want standard wedding music, most of our friends are into rock, heavy metal or indie. Several have played in bands in the past including yours truly. Everyone thought the band were excellent, the dancefloor was packed. They picked one of Julie's favorites to end on - Highway to Hell. Quite appropriate for our wedding night! Great service all round We highly recommend it.

We did ask them to play for the extra half hour and could have carried on if only we didn't have a midnight curfew.Everyone said what a great band they were. They played all of the tracks we asked for and were just wonderful! Please pass on our thanks to them - I just hope our paths cross again. We would certainly be recommending them.

" We had an absolutely fantastic time at our wedding reception: the Sparks delivered far above our expectations and every single song was spot on -- it was like having several of our favourite bands all rolled into one. They were professional, friendly, flexible (finishing the first set a little earlier than expected when I asked them to as the evening food was served, and instead doing a longer final set -- which actually worked better than our original plan). They interpreted our brief ideas and a few selections from their set list into a fantastic set that was an excellent blend of older and more modern tracks -- exactly what we wanted. I'm now trying to plan the next event where I can hire them again -- my only complaint is that the music was so great I was too busy enjoying myself to get round to talk with all our guests "

" The guys were awesome and put on a superb show - the dance floor was full and rocking all night!! All our guests have been coming back to us saying "great band!" Even my parents found that they could get involved! So often one goes to weddings where no one is on the dance floor or the DJ/Band play to an empty room, and that is always the concern. No fear of that this time, and the guys were on top of their game and had our guests in the palm of their hand! My only regret is that I only managed a few songs myself as mainly I was doing the Groom thing of trying to get around as many guests as possible for a chat. Am gutted! That said I was there for their great version of "Sweet Home Alabama" and I could hear carnage going on next door when they finished with "500 Miles"... I hope they enjoyed playing for us even 2% as much we enjoyed them. Anyway, I doubt that any of this surprises you, but I wanted to thank you for all your help with this, and the band for being such a great success (and being patient as were late on due to dinner over-running). They were perfect and everything we could have hoped for. Oh, and I must aplogise to them as well as it was tough for them to get their equipment out through the venue at the end of the night and especially as there were drunk guests all over the place - sorry! I wouldn't hesistate to recommend you or them to anyone else, and actually rather hope we can find an excuse to use them again ourselves!

" I just wanted to write you a little note to say thanks so much for organising The Sparks for our wedding on the 30th May. (Thanks also to Clare for putting me in touch with you!) The guys were really brilliant - it was an excellent sound, they played the perfect mix of music and were very helpful and polite in offering advice as to how the evening should run. And it was great to be able to have them play for the extra time after midnight! We received many compliments about the band from our guests and they certainly made the evening! The only problem was that nobody ate the evening buffet as they were too busy on the dancefloor! The final rendition of 500 Miles will forever be in my memory as the end to our perfect day! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and The Sparks to other friends requiring a band for future events.

" You were right about the band! What a party! It went brilliantly. Lucy and I had a great evening. The Sparks were fabulous, the dancefloor was never anything other than completely full. The praise for The Sparks has been raining down from so many of our guests. The music rocked and they sounded great throughout - even when one of our friends stepped up with his harmonica for a finale. Many people have asked where they came from and we have been very happy to recommend Gigz Management. We would like to thank you for all your patience and help in the run up to the wedding. I hope we may have reason to be in touch again sometime in the future!

" Matt and I both had an amazing day and the band really made the evening!! A big thankyou to Gigz Management for providing the The Sparks at our wedding. They were superb!! The dance floor was full all night and they were very accomodating to all our requests. The atmosphere in the evening was amazing thanks to them, it actually felt like the Kaiser Chiefs were in the room! Everyone commented on how good they were and we would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting a party. Dave Jordan was extremely helpful in all the preparations and is always at the end of the phone to answer any questions. Thankyou once again.

" We are so grateful for finding gigzmanagement and the The Sparks! Thank you for everything! the most professional looking and easy to use site I came across. The band were a massive part of the wedding day for us - it was really important to us to throw a great party for our friends and family (and the fact that I wanted to dance all night- which I did!) We only heard the band play briefly through the website, but they exceeded our expectations - amazing music, very professional but in a friendly way - nice to see they were enjoying themselves too... all our guests loved them, although sorry about that drunk girl who kept trying to flirt with you all! Thanks to gigzmanagment for all the advice and dealing with my silly bride-to-be questions... I had nothing to worry about anyway! I can't recommend the band highly enough - I can honestly say they were worth every penny - just need to find an excuse to throw another party now...

" Please say a huge thank you to the band as they were terrific - the music was just right, they sounded great and everyone there had a fantastic time, would be happy to recommend these guys to anyone wanting to get a party going! Kind regards.John I think John has already sent a note, but I just wanted to add that the band really did make the whole night go off with a bang. The repertoire was spot on according to the time of the evening throughout and I was asked by numerous people where we had found them. The dance floor was full for the whole time they were on. Please pass on our thanks to them! All best wishes,Emma.

" Thank you very much indeed for providing such a first-class performance at the party. Our client commented on what a mindblowing performance it was and how it really did set the tone for the event. We were particularly impressed by how you combined professionalism with talent - something that is very hard to find in a band - and for this reason we will definitely be in touch with more bookings in the very near future

" During my time as entertainments officer I booked The Sparks for the University Freshers Ball, and was hugely impressed with the professional and extremely entertaining show they put on. The playing and singing is of the highest quality, and the band really know how to entertain. They played in an area of the venue which had been fairly empty until they took to the stage, however, by the time they finished their set the venue was packed and the crowd were shouting for more
