APRES SKI Profile

Apres Ski are an awesome four-piece rock and pop covers group who have been voted "the most popular band in the French ski resorts" for the last two years running in an online www.natives.co.uk poll completed by seasonaires and holiday makers.


They play an eclectic mix of rock and pop music from the 50's through to the current day and are renowned for their high energy performances and fantastic sound. They are at their strongest playing in front of a large audience of people and working them into a frenzy with their upbeat party set.


Comprising of drums, bass, lead and rhythm guitar, and great three-part backing vocals, the band have developed their high energy performance, repertoire and sound over 7 winter ski seasons in the French Alps (including Val d'Isere, Meribel, Alp d'Heuz, Deux Alpe, Les Arcs, Chamonix ) and several tours of the Cote d'Azur and Scandinavia .


Apres Ski use top quality sound and lighting equipment and will guarantee a great show for any event. An awesome band!

Quote mark We'd seen Apres Ski many times during our years working in Val d'Isere so when we found out they were free to play on the weekend of our wedding we booked them straightaway. Dealing with the admin and logistics was really easy even remotely. On the day of the wedding they set up really quietly downstairs and then when it was time to go put on a fantastic show. We'd invited 70 guests from the UK to Val d'Isere so we wanted to make sure they had a great time. Apres Ski made the night for us, playing three great sets - loads of energy, great playing, excellent repertoire and going late into the night. They really responded to the crowd on the dance floor and played longer and louder than we expected with every extra song being appreciated by the crowd who then asked for more. So many of our guests have said to us afterwards how much they loved the band and that it really made the night for them. These guests ranged from 19 to 65 showing how versatile the band are and what a great, broad ranging repertoire they have. We'd book them again tomorrow given half a chance! The best money we've spent in a long time Quote mark

what previous clients say

Quote mark Thank you so much for playing at our wedding on 27 August 2011 at Kirtlington Park. Simon and I were thrilled with your performance as were all the guests. Hopefully you had a good time too and managed to enjoy some hog roast in between sets. There was some energetic dancing fuelled by a well stocked bar and a perhaps over enthusiastic glo stick and shot ski crowd. We look forward to seeing you play in the upcoming ski season. Quote mark
Simon and Nicky Barr // Kirtlington Park, Oxford // 27 August 2013
Quote mark Apres Ski played at my wedding in June and were absolutely superb. We had 110 guests in a marquee in a meadow and Apres Ski played after dinner. The dancefloor was rammed, and jumping, all night and my wife and I had numerous questions from the guests about where we had found such a great band to play for us. Their set was spot on and catered perfectly for our friends and for some of the older guests. Apres Ski played at my wedding in June and were absolutely superb.

Tom and Laura // West Sussex // 18 June 2013
Quote mark Ed and the boys from apres ski drove through the night from val d'isere to play at our wedding despite the arrival of ed's new born just hours before. They were very professional and went above and beyond. Most importantly the quality of their music was exceptional and they had the whole party dancing including both the groom and his mum leaping around like loonies. Extremely highly recommended. Further to this would you pass this on to the boys and notably ed for his big sacrifice in order to fulfill the commitment he had promised to do. I truly thought they were exceptionally good and We loved it Quote mark
sevi and Rosie Rixson // Chateau Soulac, France // 10 June 2011
Quote mark The band were fantastic thank you. Everyone was up and dancing, in particular Andy's 7 year old niece who turned from angelic bridesmaid into a 'pink feather boa-wearing rock star' once she found a blue blow up guitar!. Thank you so much again! Quote mark
Andy and Charlotte Eggleston // Abbaye de Talloires, Annecy, France // 28 May 2011
Quote mark Apres Ski totally rocked our wedding. They hiked up to the top of a mountain to play for us, and had the dance floor jumping from the moment they started playing until the early hours. The venue only had a limited set up time but they were so professional, we didn't need to worry about a thing. They knew exactly what to play to suit the crowd and had both the oldies and younger ones up dancing all night. They are an awesome band and a great bunch of lads who go out of their way to make your party/wedding one to remember. Also helped our bar bill as our guests didn't want to leave the dance floor!

Cath and Tom Bold // Valais, Switzerland // 16 April 2011
Quote mark Apres Ski were excellent as I and a number of the guests knew they would be. Those that had not seen them before loved them as well. They kept the dance floor full from start to finish. Once again many thanks for all your help!
