Profile

London-based band The Flow are one of the most sought-after party bands in the UK! Their secret lies in their versatility. Whether you’re after a classic soul/Motown set, or a contemporary rock/pop/chart set, you’ll receive a perfectly pitched high energy fun show with fantastic vocals and backed up by some of the best session musicians in London.


No matter what the occasion, The Flow can supply it all. Their signature 5-piece line-up can be supplemented with a brass section on request and they also offer equally impressive duo, trio and 4-piece line-ups for smaller events. If you're looking for something a little different, they are also an experienced Rockaoke band with their front-girl doubling as a superb compère so why not get your guests involved with the entertainment on your special day?!


Take the hassle and stress out of your event entertainment by leaving it to the experts. The band’s wealth of experience and talent is evident from the off and individually, band members have worked and continue to work with the likes of Sir Tom Jones, Rod Stewart, Blondie, Westlife, Katherine Jenkins, Boy George, Sugababes and Chicane to name but a few.

" We saw Counterflow live at The Roadhouse and Guanabara and knew immediately that they were the special live band that we needed for our special wedding day. Counterflow are professional, friendly and immensely talented. All our guests loved their chemistry and the wide range of music that catered for all age groups and tastes. Counterflow are everything you could ever wish for in a live band - they made the evening go with a bang and the guests didn't stop dancing. Incredible! "

" Very little that I can say that hasn't already been said but Counterflow really are top draw. We spent countless hours trying to find the right band and without a doubt we made the right decision. From R&B & Soul to modern classics, Counterflow can do em all and add some freshness to it all. They did two of our requests as well so well chuffed with that. The whole appointment was professional and personable throughout and lost count of the amount of times people were saying, "Where did you find these guys? They are awesome!" and my Mum and Dad absolutely loved you guys so if you're keeping the parents happy then it's got to be good! Already planning on a trip to London to see you guys again. Thoroughly recommend Counterflow for any occasion, thanks so much, let's do it again soon. "

" Thank you so much for making our wedding evening better than we ever could have imagined! When we saw you playing in Covent Garden back in November, we just knew that we HAD to have you play at our wedding! You made everything so simple. You really turned the phrase 'wedding band' on its head, with no 'Brown Eyed Girl' in sight! :) We feel so lucky to have found you as I really don't think there's a band out there that could touch what you did for us! In fact, we're already thinking about having an anniversary party just so that we can book you again! "
