Rock & Pop, Rock n Roll, Guitarist, Indie1
Price from £1,150
Location: Tyne and Wear

The Breakout are a three piece wedding and function band from Newcastle that cover the North East and beyond. Four out of five of the band’s bookings come from recommendations or as a result of people seeing them live. Their energetic set and professional attitude has won them Christmas residencies at prestigious venues, regular repeat bookings for the NHS and appearances at some of the region’s top venues.


The Breakout are a three piece covers band from Newcastle providing top tunes to top people at weddings, functions and private soirées throughout the North East. Don’t be fooled by their boyish good looks, the band is made up of three seasoned musicians who have played the length and breadth of the country. With a sound bigger than their numbers would suggest, The Breakout are going down a storm on the local wedding circuit.

Their stellar set of songs goes back as far as The Beatles, Elvis and The Kinks, stops off at the likes of Oasis, The Smiths, Blur and Pulp and continues through to today’s biggest bands; Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys and The Killers. In other words, there’s something for everyone which results in a dance floor filled with young and old alike.

Admittedly musical talent alone doesn’t create a great wedding band. A professional attitude, reliability, smart appearance and a commitment to great customer service is also essential. Qualities that can all be found in The Breakout.

If you like what you’ve seen, read and heard and think The Breakout are the right band for your occasion then get in touch and get the ball rolling as the band book up quick!

We’ve booked them for numerous corporate events, outdoor family fun days and themed parties around the UK and will be working with them again in 2014 also.

The Breakout were definitely one of the highlights of an already fantastic day and so many of our guests commented on how great you were.

Not only are you all incredibly talented musicians who have put together a great set that caters for all ages and tastes (the dance floor was full all night!) but you were also a pleasure to deal with and we’re really grateful for you being so accommodating, flexible and professional.

We couldn’t recommend you highly enough and wish you all the very best for the future. Thanks again!”

Crathorne Hall, Yarm, North Yorkshire “Hi Guys, we just wanted to say you were all absolutely brilliant and one of the main talking points of our wedding! Our guests, like us, thought you were fantastic and we have been inundated with messages saying how good you were. We have shared your link on our Wedding Facebook Page- a mutual friend is getting married and was enquiring about you guys.”

The playlist was perfect- we couldn’t have chosen a better one ourselves! It was pitched just right. There were people on that dance floor last Saturday night that would NEVER ordinarily get up and dance. We can’t pay you a higher compliment than that!

It was a pleasure to have you there to entertain our guests and share our special day. We will continue to recommend you to friends and family and bear you in mind for future parties of our own!

Thanks a million.
