We are Jolly Polly and the Pirates party band!

Hello and welcome! Thanks for visiting this website. We're Polly, David & James- otherwise known as Jolly Polly and the Pirates, a high energy, lively, fun, Suffolk based wedding function band and party band available to hire for your special events! 

 

We've been performing throughout the UK since 2017, and since 2021 as part of Eclectric Music - and what a time we've had, at weddings, parties and corporate events. We completely love it; it's a full time job for us, and we can't wait to share it with you!

 

Our repertoire is an exciting mix of classic sing along rocking party tunes that we blend with all the latest rock, pop and punk dancefloor fillers. The typical Jolly Polly and the Pirates gig is exploding with fun and energy - with three part harmony vocals and an amazing sound. There really is something for everyone here. We also provide background music in between performances, or if you prefer, we can even provide a DJ with live vocals and percussion, and are also able to offer acoustic music for your drinks reception.

 

Key to our success as a band is our belief that high quality, high energy, wedding bands and party bands need not cost the earth! We aim to be able to offer a service that can meet all budgets, so do get in touch to discuss your needs. We're also different from other bands in that we can play at a volume to suit the room and your guests. You need it a bit quieter? That's fine. We aren't divas that can only play at, and demand to play at full volume all the time. This is your party after all and we want you to enjoy it!

 

If you're looking to hire an experienced party band in Suffolk, East Anglia, or further afield that will fill the dance floor and provide top notch live music entertainment... well look no further! You really are in safe hands when you book Jolly Polly and the Pirates, with the very best professional advice and consultations available whenever you need it.

 

So, for the most highly recommended function band Suffolk has to offer, get in touch now! Or if you're in the market for something a little bit different for your event, take a look at our unique Micro Festival and DJ Polly pages, and remember we also have an acoustic offering- Polly Unplugged, and a live band karaoke "Bandaoke" option!

What Our Clients Say

"Jolly Polly and the Pirates were absolutely brilliant, they kept everyone on the dance floor singing their hearts out! We even had a dance off, and when we didn't want the night to end they played a few bonus classics! We can't thank them enough for playing at our wedding, and would definitely recommend them to all of our friends and family! Thank you again."
