If you wan't to hire a party bus - Then check out - The bus is epic, and the team can sort everything you want, from meals, drinks, cool routes and club entrance.


You can also surprise your guests at the reception with some colourful caribbean steel band music. This option is complementary to many different themes.

I've organised quite a few hen nights and girls nights out, from Elvis nights with our very own Elvis singer to bar crawl patries. But if i want a stress free night get everyone to chip in and go to one of the Adonis Cabaret shows, everythings sorted for you and keeps everyone happy, and you don't have to clean up after !


A great new band for your party would be JUST FUZZ - they do their own original music plus covers from Led Zep, The Who, Oasis etc. Check them out on They are appearing live at the Clapham Grand on Friday 5 September - tickets from Feed Me Music
