Normally we perform for 1 hour. We start with a 40min set, incorporating your favourite songs and any special requests. We then play 20mins of background instrumental music while your guests chat, relax, dance or eat. We are at our best as a four piece band, but can also scale up or down the band to suit your event and budget. For all bookings the price includes a £50 non-returnable deposit, payable 2 weeks in advance. Please note that if your event is more than 5 miles out of Cambridge there will be a surcharge to cover travel costs.
3 piece band £160
4 piece band £180
5, 6 or more players, price on request.

If you are organising an event and want something a bit different, then why not use us to get the party Shaking, Rattling and Rolling! We can run mini-sessions for children and their parents and can even tailor what we do to suit your event. Obviously we will play our instruments and your guests will help with the singing! We can make your children's party memorable, and also offer something a bit different for all the bored kids at weddings and adult parties too. To see our rates and read about previous parties please scroll down. If you would like to discuss your event, please get in touch. If your child attends a playgroup or nursery and you are interested in having a special live music session, check out our workshops page.
"Dear Shake, Rattle and Roll. Thank you so much for making Bethany's party such a great bash. We all had a really super time and it was fantastic to see all our guests, from newborns to great aunties tapping their toes! Your wonderfully wide ranging repertoire really did have something for everyone and I particularly appreciated the care you took to play songs that were meaningful to us. A beautifully rendered Tula tu took me right back to my childhood and my mum loved the tango! Thank you."
"A big hug and thanks to Shake, Rattle & Roll for providing lively entertainment for the kids (and adults) at Aadya's birthday party. The kids had so much fun and had lovely time dancing to the music. The guests loved the cake cutting finish to the musical entertainment and so did we!
Thanks for your kind co-operation when there was a slight delay initially in getting the party going.
You got Aadya in the best possible mood that a child could be during her birthday party and made her day really special. We are sure Shake Rattle & Roll will go a long way entertaining kids and adults….."
"Thank you so much for helping us to celebrate at Elena's naming ceremony and first birthday party, the music was perfect and everyone had such a great time. The band really made the day; all the small guests absolutely loved the songs and we received lots of positive comments about you. We were especially impressed by how you took the time to involve even the most shy members of the party. The highlight for us was being able to sing along with some Finnish children's songs. It really made Ilkka's day to have those songs included and Elena loved the train one especially. We were particularly touched that you had taken the time to arrange and learn four new pieces for Elena. Everything was perfect and you are highly recommended!"
"Thank you to Shake, Rattle and Roll for making Maxi's party such a success. It was such an easy way to give the party the sparkle it needed and the children and adults all really enjoyed the music. Thank you for being so thoughtful about the kind of music Maxi and his friends might like, including all his favourites, and being such a generous presence at the party, that everybody there could really engage with what you were doing. I found it hard to think about how to have some kind of 'entertainment' at the party without going overboard and still be developmentally appropriate, and you really hit the right tone. I had lots of comments from adults who said how impressed they were with the music and your way of being with the whole party, not just the children, who loved it. I would recommend (and have recommended) Shake Rattle and Roll to anyone, from a very happy customer indeed."
"Just wanted to say thanks! You and Clare totally made the party into
something really special and memorable - we all really enjoyed what
you did, and I had loads of positive comments afterwards from people
asking about you. We're so happy that you could make it. And the Happy
Birthday moment will stay with me for ever - I think it was then that it
dawned on Jen that the whole thing was for her!"
