The Modern Classics

The Modern Classics are a cheeky and charming acoustic duo with a vibrant pop, funk, soul, Motown, Britpop and 80s repertoire who'll brighten up your event without fail!

The Modern Classics are a contemporary male duo of acoustic guitar and lead vocals supported by electronic drums and backing vocals. Their live show brings together the jaunty vibes of the Liverpool covers gig circuit, the eclectic vibrancy of London, and the chemistry of two friends who met in their university days!

Their sunny performance combines singalong favourites and energetic modern hits for an effervescent show that never fails to get guests in good spirits. Whether you want the boys to blend in to the background or lead with headline energy covering artists from Frank Sinatra to Ed Sheeran, The Modern Classics will provide the mood you're after.

For over five years the pair have been gigging together and separately, and have toured the UK with SUB BLUE and The Summer of Love Musical (playing 60s and 70s classics), not to mention Spain with Jacob Sierra; they've supported Emmylou Harris, Ward Thomas, and Isaac Gracie, and performed for high profile corporate clients across Great Britain.

The Modern Classics generously offer to learn your first dance plus five other special requests as standard, making it a special performance indeed! They bring their own PA and will provide playlist music between sets so there are no lulls in the entertainment throughout their stay. Looking for a little extra? The Modern Classics provide the option to book a keys player, giving you an energetic trio performance!

Why not add on their hugely popular bespoke songwriting service, which can be played live at your special occasion. They can also record an acoustic version, or a fully mixed and produced version of the song for you to keep - so you can treasure the moment forever. Individually, members have received millions of online streams and national radio play for their songwriting capabilities, and have featured on TV and film worldwide for the BBC, MTV, Sky and the ever popular Netflix Original Queer Eye. Having also trained at the prestigious Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, founded by Sir Paul McCartney, you are guaranteed to forever cherish your own personalised song written by one of the most talented and experienced song-writers in the UK.

"The Modern Classics were fantastic and everybody said how much they enjoyed the event and the two guys really made a difference with their music. The type of music they played was perfect for the audience and a number of people asked for their contact details which clearly demonstrated their professionalism and overall performance."
Live Duo Review
"Perfect communication and extremely good performers for our birthday party! Thanks guys for making the night so special."
Party Duo Review
"A folk-pop fun packed sensation, perfect accompaniment to walking around in the sunshine. Effortlessly joyful, Ian's voice is beautifully refreshing and will make you smile instantly."
Event Duo Review
"Crowds may talk of his ability but it doesn't seem to break the final iced over façade that keeps many a terrific young artist from being seen for the beauty they offer."
Duo Review
"Wow these two rock! Not only did they start earlier than they were meant to due to a music dilemma on the day but they smashed every set and had everyone dancing! They were a lovely duo who even stayed and had a beer with us after! Would recommend to everyone!"
Lucy and Robin - Wedding - Devon
"5/5 everything was amazing from the build up and planning of Joe. To the boys performing on the nights and contact during the day. Everything was fantastic! Couldn't have asked for a better team and experience."
Xander - Wedding - London
