Every weekend for the past 20 or so years in the wonderful city of London, you can’t go without hearing about one or several weddings, birthdays or namings or even memorial parties. As a matter of fact, Londoners have become well and popularly known for their Owanbe parties and events. These complete with a lavishly decorated venues, scrumptious food, assortment of expensive drinks, multi tier cakes, Celebrity MCs, expensively tailored Aso Ebi and of course the indefatigable live band artists. In London, there are several live band artists or performers, with a new breed coming up every year. Many of them are University Educated professionals who have taken the path of entertainment due to the calling of their natural talents and passion for the trade.
From the days of the original London live band artist Jide Chord, these talented men and women have become the core element of any party in London and next to the MC, the artist on the band stand will be the most important ingredient that adds live and spice to any party.
