Skyknights In The Spotlight

June 18th, 2021

Charming and dynamic, Skyknights are a brilliant 5-piece party band with a genuine talent for captivating an audience. Fronted by two brilliant vocal leads and comprised of two guitars, sax, bass and drums, this stellar group of first-rate musicians are experts at filling the dance floor and keeping their audience in high spirits!

Skyknights have a large, genre-spanning repertoire including soul, funk, Motown, indie, folk and pop, and have a pretty impressive musical resumรฉ! Not only have they performed together at over 200 weddings and events, but the two lead singers (Ant B and Ant K) have been involved in some exciting projects, including working with McFly and Busted and performing on the West End!

We wanted to shine the spotlight on this amazing band and get to know them a bit better, so over to you guys!
