If you want a band that really know what they are doing and want a guaranteed fun evening then look no further!
We recognise that client requirements frequently differ in terms of budget, available space, repertoire preferences and more. Milo Max offers several line-up options based on our 4 & 5 piece band formats and representing a plethora of experience and showman-ship.
You can book one of our 4 piece line-ups (with or without female vocals) or you can book one of our larger line-ups, the 5, 6 or 7 piece, which offer slightly different musical flavours and a bigger sound/ experience (see below).
For drinks receptions and other situations where you would like some great live music to set the scene and ambiance rather than be the focus and also for smaller events/ spaces/ budgets, we can also offer a duo & trio format.
We perform between 80-100 functions per year across the south of England from Kent to Somerset and up to the midlands, as well as some European shows.
Our 4 piece line-up options
Line-up A: with female vocals
- Lead female vocals
- Guitars & lead male vocals
- Bass guitar & vocals
- Drums & vocals
Line-up B: all male vocals/ two harmony instruments
- Lead male vocals & guitar
- Lead male vocals & guitars
- Bass guitar & vocals
- Drums & vocals
Our 5 piece line-up: + Keyboards
A very popular option, opening up the repertoire to greater extent and offering more musical colour, is to choose our 5 piece line-up with one of our talented keyboard players. Keyboards offer a plethora of sounds including: piano, keyboards, organs, strings, synths.
Our 6 piece line-up: + 2nd Guitarist & lead male vocalist
For extra wow! factor, adding our 2nd guitarist and front man vocalist means that firstly you are truly covered in regards to male vocals, and maximum repertoire choice, but also with two guitars you can authentically re-create far more songs. With 2 guitars & keyboards you will enjoy a massive sound (depth & colour rather than volume). Adding a 2nd guitar gives you a lot more diversity and is much more useful than adding saxophone, especially so with the front male/lead vocal combo - so that's why we offer this as the 6 piece and then saxophone as the next logical step in the 7 piece.
Our 7 piece line-up: + Saxophones & additional vocal
For a final layer of wow! factor, and if you have the budget & venue space, our clients go for the full 7 piece band. This adds one of our fabulous saxophonists; our sax players all perform with 2 types of saxophone, which brings variety to their sound through the show as they switch between sax instrument depending on the song; they also sing adding to the value of including this additional band member.
All professional level bands have additional & backup band members, which is firstly absolutely crucial in providing a seamless & guaranteed service and secondly provides the ability to offer our clients large line-ups for extra wow factor on top of the core band.
Please don't make the mistake of hiring an amateur or part time band for your event, especially if it's your wedding - these bands have little or no ability to cater for changes in their line-up, which is a 'must' for any reliable and reputable band. You really want a band that has some interchangeability - this stimulates the creative and performing juices of good musicians and also incorporates resilience into your band's operation.
As an established band, our additional players have at the least performed on numerous Milo Max engagements, or have been full time Milo Max musicians in the past, and some members of our band have experience playing together that actually pre-dates Milo Max (more than 11 years). This important capability guarantees you peace of mind that you are hiring an established team of professional musicians and singers that have been performing with each other for years in a variety of different formats.
