Knight Muse Party Band is one of the region's most versatile professional function bands. Originally formed in 2002 as the covers band for North East Soiree, the band has provided music for weddings, parties, birthdays, functions and corporate events throughout the whole of the North East region from Northumberland to North Yorkshire.
The Band has both male and female vocalists, guitar, bass and drums and can perform a selection of rock, pop, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and up to date popular music and can swap to our own Swing Jazz band or Ceilidh Band with caller. The Ceilidh Band has a dedicated site which includes instructional videos to help any Ceilidh novices - Ceilidh Knights

Please click here to see Knight Muse Repertoire List which is all performed completely live and from memory. The band can jump from tune to tune depending on what the majority of people want to dance to that night. The band like to join in the party and the singers often mingle with dancers on the floor and encourage crowd singing with our radio mic. We just love a great party and the night is finished off with our own DJ and your own playlist choices for the DJ set.

This short compilation demonstrates how we like to mix in a couple of tunes to keep everyone dancing. This particular example was to end the night that was started with our String Quartet for the ceremony and drinks, then Ceilidh, then covers, then DJ for the last half hour till midnight. Lumley Castle, County Durham


This is a mixture of Ceilidh and Party Band played between 7:30pm and midnight at one wedding in a Tipi - all recorded from a single video camera on a tripod so the visuals aren't great but will give an idea with short clips of each tune.
We start with the Ceilidh and then switch to the covers Party band. In the Ceilidh, we give full demonstrations and teach all the right moves before each dance and then give further instructions if required.
