Break out the banjos for an unforgettable night of dancing. Carnival are our Kent based folk and pop function band. They play upbeat folky versions of chart hits including Britney, Pharrell Williams, Justin Bieber and more.


The 4-piece is made up of double bass, banjo, acoustic guitar and drums with male vocals. They also offer an electric style to finish off the night with a bang.


Each of the band's 4 musicians are incredibly talented and the band is well known for their creative arrangements of modern and classic pop hits. This makes Carnival a fun addition to any festival wedding or corporate event.

I want to just say a big thank you to Carnival for making our big day so special. Everyone commented on how brilliant the band were and loved the different styles of music they played from the acoustic set outside in the afternoon to the full on party hits in the evening! - Toni & Ben Marshall - Wedding, Eastwell Manor, Kent


I know from experience that it’s difficult to choose a band for an important occasion, particularly one you don't get to see in person. But not only are Carnival superb in the promotional video but they sounded exactly the same (if not better!) in real life! - Mr & Mrs Garrett - Wedding, Old Kent Barn, Kent

Words are not enough to express how wonderful Carnival were at our wedding reception last Saturday! The band were amazing musicians, so friendly & professional and from the first dance (please thank them again for learning it!) to the last encore they had everyone up on the dance floor! Bianca Mclean - Wedding, Preston Court, Kent
