The Wildermen In The Spotlight

May 26th, 2021

Introducing The Wildermen, an exuberant acoustic folk trio with boundless energy! These dynamic musicians will have your dance floor jam-packed in no time with their upbeat acoustic renditions of pop, folk, rock and indie hits.

Each member of this accomplished trio has over a decade of experience in various lineups, performing at parties and weddings as well as festivals and concerts. From TV appearances and headlining festivals to supporting the likes of Bastille, Shaggy and N-Dubz (to name only a few), it’s fair to say your event is in good hands with The Wildermen.

We’ll pass you over to the boys now, we hope you enjoy getting to know them better!



Who are The Wildermen?

“A couple of brothers and their good mate who love playing music together and getting a crowd up and dancing.”


Give us a wow fact about you!

“Matt and Nick’s Dad is a professional Opera singer so they grew up surrounded by the music business.”


What can a wedding couple/client expect when they book you?

“Professional and raucous live music. A toe-tapping, get up off your seats, good time!”


Do you offer any optional extras?

“Afternoon acoustic music, added sax, late finish…just ask and we’ll see what we can do!”

Which song is your favourite to perform?

“This has to be ‘Ho Hey’ by The Lumineers, especially for the crowd participation on the gang vocals.”


Which is the song you can always rely on to fill the dance floor?

“‘Johnny B. Goode’ by Chuck Berry always gets people onto the dance floor. Back To The Future vibes!”


Top-requested song?

“Either ‘Valerie’ by Amy Winehouse or ‘Mr Brightside’ by The Killers.”


Top choice for a first dance song?

“Since ‘A Star Is Born’ came out, ‘Shallow’ has proved very popular.”


Favourite sing along song?

“You can’t beat a classic ‘Wonderwall’ sing-along at the end of an evening!”


The Wildermen have an extensive repertoire and can create the perfect vibes for any part of your big day. Whether you’re looking for some chilled-out tunes for your afternoon drinks or dynamic dance floor bops, they’ll put together the ideal setlist for you. Check out their full repertoire here:

What inspired you to be musicians?

“It all dates back to Red Hot Chili Peppers from teenage years. They just seemed to be having so much fun onstage.”


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

“Pretty much. We’re a fairly easy-going bunch so it takes a lot to get wound up. No divas here!”


What’s the best thing about being musicians?

“Bringing the joy of music to a special occasion. Getting to play at amazing venues and meet all the lovely couples!”


…and what’s the worst?

“Driving home in the early hours of the morning to discover a road diversion which takes you miles out of your way.”

Most memorable moment of your career as musicians?

“New Years Eve 2019. Being booked by a groom as a surprise wedding present. We managed to set up next door in complete silence and started playing the first dance as the couple walked in. The look of surprise on the bride’s face was priceless!”


Weirdest moment/thing that’s happened at a wedding/event?

“Playing at a party in London and seeing a guest who looked like Tim Minchin…only to discover that it was in fact Tim Minchin!”


If you weren’t musicians, what would you be doing?

“Probably something creative like videography or acting…anything to avoid a ‘real’ job!”


Drummer singing


Finally…top tip for anyone booking wedding/party entertainment?

“If possible try and have the band in the same room as or near the bar, it’s where people tend to congregate the most!”
