The Dukes Of Havoc - About Us

First of all, thanks for taking the time to come to our site, and we hope you’re are enjoying your visit.


With our blog not yet operational on the new site, we decided to take time out to tell you a little bit more about the band, what we do, who we are, and how we do it!


The Band

Through hard work, graft, a bit of luck, and lots of advertising we have been lucky enough to play at some truly spectacular events over these last few years. We consider ourselves primarily a wedding band, as this makes up around 80% of our work. The other 20% is made up of private parties, birthdays, anniversaries, and corporate events.



The band itself started back in the summer of 2010 by a bunch of friends that where already playing together with other bands. It started originally as a side project to fill in gaps of there often busy touring schedules working with artists & projects such as: Mark Owen, Peter Andre, Jesus Christ Superstar, Sophie Ellis Bexter, Marianne Faithful, The Darkness, Holy Johnson & Take That, to name but a few.


The band knew that things where about to change when they performed at over 80 events in there first year, far surpassing any expectations.


With the birth of the original website, promo videos and regularly updated fresh demos, the band where only going in one direction.

With great packages available for any party, we are sure to be able to offer you just what you need at your event. While most clients find that our basic package has everything that they need, we are also able to offer bespoke packages for clients with specific needs or requirements.
