About 21st Century Riot
Live Hampshire Corporate Entertainment Bands For Hire South East
Professional and experienced, 21st Century Riot’s musicians have played hundreds of weddings and private parties as well as corporate events for clients such as the NFL (to check out some footage from the crowd - click here), Marussia Formula 1 Team, Ericsson, Jamesons Whisky, Nespresso, TopShop and O2, to name just a few. Plus with CVs and playing credits ranging from Amy Winehouse to Skunk Anansie's Skin, the band's personnel have played vast European festivals and some of the UK's leading corporate venues, including Wembley Arena, Indigo2, Shepherd's Bush Empire and Cardiff's Millennium Centre. These musicians are not short of talent or experience!
Equally importantly, the band are always punctual, respectful and totally professional both on and off the stage - they are often praised for being a pleasure to work with. So, not only are you guaranteed a rocking performance from 21st Century Riot, they are also one of the friendliest bands you will come across.
21st Century Riot - male vocals, guitar, bass & drums
For the full rockin’ performance the 4 piece line-up will really set your party alight!
Riot Unplugged (acoustic) - male vocals, guitar & bass
The perfect backdrop to a wedding drinks reception or a corporate dinner, the Acoustic Trio keeps that cool edge but with a chilled out vibe (can be booked separately or as an extra set option alongside the full band).
PA and stage lighting
The bands are fully self-contained bringing their own PA and stage lighting as standard so you don't need to worry about organising any equipment.
If you would like to really keep the party jumping in between the band's sets just let us know and we will book our fabulous DJ.

Will there be music in between the band's sets?
Absolutely! We can provide a DJ for you or if the budget doesn't allow for this we have appropriate playlists for in between the band's sets. Alternatively, you can bring your own music to play through our system or for a small fee we can create bespoke playlists for you.
Can you learn my first song?
We are happy to learn your first song provided it is band friendly and we have appropriate notice. Where it is not possible or the original track is preferred an MP3 can be played through our PA system.
What time do you start/finish?
This is up to you! Our standard timings are based on arriving at 5pm (to be set up by 6.30pm) and finishing by 1am and we play 2 x 60 minute or 3 x 40 minute sets at appropriate intervals between these times. We can of course be flexible with this but extra charges may be applicable – just let us know if you need special arrangements for the timings and we will work everything out with you.
How long to you take to set up your equipment?
We allow 90 minutes to set up our equipment, sound check and change. This is usually plenty of time but it does depend on access to the stage area and any hold ups out of our control.
How do we book?
In order to secure your date a 20% deposit is required along with a signed booking agreement which we will send to you.
Can I provisionally book?
We appreciate you may not want to commit to booking a band until you hear them live, however we do receive several booking enquiries each week and we can only secure a date with a signed booking agreement and deposit.
Can we hear you play live?
We would love all our clients to see us live before booking but unfortunately this is not always possible or practical. We specialise in performing at private functions, not pubs or clubs, and therefore unless our client gives their permission we cannot allow access to prospective clients.
If we do have any public events / showcases coming up then of course we will let you know but failing that hopefully our demos and videos will help your decision.
Do I need to pick the songs you will play on the night?
Not usually, in fact we recommend leaving this to us. Designing a good set list is quite an art and ours have been put together based on tempo, keys and most importantly experience. Of course if you have particular songs from our repertoire that you want the band to play then that’s no problem at all, just let us know and we will amend the set lists accordingly. It is worth keeping in mind that the band will also change the songs they play on the night to reflect the mood of the audience so if they have exact instructions on song choices it may restrict them from giving the best performance.
Can my friend / brother / cousin etc get up and sing a song with the band?
This can be the highlight of the night to see someone you know perform with the band and it’s something we love to make happen. We do just ask that you arrange it with us prior to your event and of course respect the band’s equipment.
Do I need to provide anything else for the band?
Somewhere to change comfortably and keep out of your guests way in between performances would be appreciated. It helps if there is a mirror, electricity supply and comfortable chairs. Ideally the changing room should be secure so that the band can leave their day clothes and bags in there. If no changing room is available, please let the band know in advance.
Food and drinks
Food and soft drinks are requested as in most cases the band are away from home for approximately 12-16 hours. Therefore it’s important that they get a good meal in order to give their best performance, so hot food or access to a good quality buffet is always very much appreciated. If for some reason it is impossible to cater for the band at your venue, let us know well in advance.
This is usually available at most venues but if this is not the case parking expenses must be paid where receipts are provided.Corporate Event Entertainment For Hire Hampshire London South East
