Downtown Acoustic In The Spotlight

Last updated on May 7th, 2019

We would like you to formally meet Downtown Acoustic!

Downtown Acoustic are a duo/trio offering an excellent performance of live acoustic covers. Their eclectic repertoire incorporates a mix of genres and styles, with hits from the 1950s to songs in the charts right now. Together they have performed for many years, perfecting their performance and wowing crowds as a wedding reception band. They are an incredibly versatile band with options for laid-back covers or a full party atmosphere, depending on your event. Downtown Acoustic can get everyone up on the dance floor in no time with their stunning renditions of your favourite hits. You can rest assured that everyone will be impressed by their performance.

We spoke to Downtown Acoustic to discover more about this fantastic act:

Who are Downtown Acoustic?

Downtown Acoustic is our premier acoustic duo set up! Guaranteed to get your guests on their feet, the acoustic trio option packs a punch with percussion added to the mix, performing a wide range of acoustic renditions of everything from The Beatles to Rihanna. If you’re looking for an edgy alternative to a traditional party band, the Downtown Acoustic are a unique and versatile setup, perfect for any occasion!

Live Wedding Band

Which song is your favourite to perform?

We would say it’s different every time! We have a Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson Medley. We also love the Chili Peppers!

Out of the songs you’ve been asked to learn for a first dance, which is your favourite?

We have learned so many for weddings! We always love a challenge, sometimes people don’t pick love songs, they might pick a song that was played when they first met. So we understand that it’s their unique choice! However, we loved doing Could You Be Loved by Bob Marley and Mirrorball by Elbow.

One final song question, which is the song you can always rely on to fill the dance floor?

Teenage Dirtbag as well as Mr Brightside!

Here’s another floor-filler performed by Downtown Acoustic: Sugar by Maroon 5

Do you get on with each other all of the time?

Most of the time! Milly the Singer and Chris who is on guitar have been together a very long time and love performing together! All the musicians used are very good friends 🙂

Who has the most annoying habit (and what is it)?

Milly drinks more water than a goldfish!

What’s the best thing about being in a band?

Bringing fun to the party, seeing people happy, visiting new places all the time, its the best!

… and what’s the worst?

If you don’t get fed, it’s a long evening haha!

What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened to you at a wedding?

Oh my, there’s been a few. We have had a guest come and try to sing on the mic while speeches were being done in another room, we were saying ‘NO! Don’t go near that, you shouldn’t be in here!’ Then she fell on her face. Clearly very drunk.

But the best, was when a venue asked us to set up our five-piece band on the roundabout at the entrance, and the roundabout was also on a hill, I told them the Pa system would roll into the main road and most probably kill the visitors before they could hear us.

We could go on and on with these stories. They are great and we love having them as funny memories!

And finally…The most important question: Buffet or Hog Roast?

Conflicting answers! Chris loves Hog Roast but the others love a buffet!

Congratulations to Emma and Alex! 🎉

After an amazing day at The Mill Barns Exclusive Use No Corkage Countryside Wedding Venue & Rooms they had the wonderful Afro Soul complete their celebrations on the highest high note ever!

"What an amazing band! Entertainment Nation and Afro Soul were professional throughout the planning and preparation for the wedding. Afro Soul took the time to get to know us and our music tastes and we loved every minute they were at our wedding. Our guests could not get enough and we danced all night! They made a special effort to cover our first dance which was not on their set list, and they did this so perfectly - we just wish we could have them play the soundtrack to our lives as they were amazing! We will be recommending them to all of our friends and family and we hope to be lucky enough to hear them play again in the future."

Thank you for your lovely words - we wish you all the best for married life 😃
