ABOUT THE BAND
2012 Show reel
Number 7 are one of the most experienced functions bands playing in and around Hertfordshire and are the perfect choice if you are looking for a contemporary band for your wedding, corporate event or party who can seamlessly blend different genres of music into a funky set that all of your guests can enjoy.
Whether you are aiming for a chilled and relaxed vibe or want everyone up dancing and chanting the words, we have lots of great material to help everything go perfectly for you on the night. We don’t bring tons of complicated equipment and we don’t wear spangly outfits (not a sequin in sight!) but we have all been playing since we were very little, love real music and care massively about what we do . . . so if you are looking for quality musicianship and like mixing up the ultra-modern with the timeless classics please take a closer look!
Indie | Rock | Pop | Funk | Soul
Just let us know the type of event you are celebrating and the atmosphere that you are aiming for and we will do the rest! Below are some of
our favourites that we might include. . . if there are any of them that you particularly like, please just let us know at time of booking . . .

TO DISCUSS YOUR EVENT

Whether you are booking for a wedding, a party or a corporate event,
we want to work with you to make sure that everything goes smoothly
and turns out exactly the way you want it.
Our professionalism and our love of what we do means that once you
have secured your booking, you can relax knowing that you can rely on
us and that we will be friendly, flexible and easy to work with in the
lead up to your special evening and on the night itself.
In the first instance, please call us to make sure that we are available
and talk to us about any special requirements that you, or your chosen
venue, might have. If you need an early set up time, for example,
or if the venue is not used to hosting live music or has constraints
around volume levels or timings then please let us know so that we
can plan around this and use our experience to advise you whether
your ideas will work and suggest alternatives wherever possible.
Your booking is confirmed as soon as you have paid a 30% deposit to
secure that date and time. Please note that this deposit guarantees
our commitment that we will be there and is a non-refundable.
The balancing 70% can either be paid by cheque (up to 10 days before your event), by bank transfer (up to 2 days before your event) or in cash on the evening itself (whichever suits you best).
A month before your event, please let us know if there are any of
the songs in the Playlist section of this website that you would particularly like us to include and, if it is your wedding, what the arrangements are for your first dance. Please see the further information section of this site for more details.

The No 7 band were fantastic, exactly what we were looking for. We booked No. 7 for our office Christmas party purely based on their Youtube video because we liked their look and sound plus we were specifically looking for a 3 piece band. The band in real life exceeded our expectations. The music was fun, everyone loved it and most importantly everyone danced, the dance floor was packed. The band were professional, at all times, despite a tricky crowd they were very accommodating and had a great sound.
Karen Lloyd, PA to Managing Director - AXA PPP International (December 2013)
Number 7 played for my birthday party and they were brilliant. Really good musicians with just the right combination of music for all ages and got people on the dance floor. Would highly recommend them.
Linda (Birthday party January 2014)
Just a note to thank you for last Sat eve -
you guys were fantastic and everyone enjoyed the
music. See you again soon – no doubt in Billy’s !
Happy New Year!
All the best,
Lisa (Birthday party December 2013)
‘Bob and the guys played at our wedding back in May ’13, and they were superb. Bob really listened to what we wanted from a band and the atmosphere we were hoping create, and they nailed it. They even learned a specific song for our first dance and put their own slant on it. Can’t speak highly enough of them. Equally talented and professional, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them!

If you have any questions please call us
How much do we cost?
Prices for a 3-piece in Hertfordshire start at £900 for an evening function, for 2 x 1 hour sets and an hour of set up time before hand. Special days and peak season events are a little bit more and depending on our diary, a discount may be available Monday to Thursday and for afternoon garden parties and barbeques. If you need us to go further afield, or to set up early, this is available for a small additional charge. For a precise quote, please call Bob Halford on 0800 328 7199.
Planning a large event?
Our 4-piece option includes an extra guitarist to fill out the sound for
a bigger crowd. Prices for a 4-piece start at £1,200.
• Bob Halford - Lead Vocals & Guitar (Electric & Acoustic)
• Toby Newcombe - Bass
• Gareth Grover - Drums
Plus if you choose our 4 piece option
• Drew Lowe (Electric Guitar)
Our standard show is 2 x 1 hour sets with a break in between.
However, if a longer play time of 3 x 45 minutes would suit you better,
lets us know and we can happily do this for a small additional cost.
FREE Music when the band is not playing!
We can supply music in between our performances at no extra cost or
(and this may work better as it will be personal to you) are happy to play a mix that you have compiled on our equipment. This will save you the expense of a DJ if you don’t feel that you need an interactive, separate service for this aspect of your event. Equally, if you would like one of us to stay after we have finished so that you can continue to enjoy recorded music on our equipment for a while longer, we are happy to do this for a small additional charge per hour.
Your First Dance song
If your chosen song is something that we believe that we can do well,
we would love to perform your first dance for you. We know many of the
classics and are happy to consider learning a new piece if we think it will
translate well to a live performance – please just let us know at time of
booking what you are planning. Equally, if you don’t have a special tune,
we would be happy to suggest some of our favourites for you to consider.
Being 3-piece we can fit into almost any space you can reasonably imagine! A stage is ideal but by no means a ‘must have’. If your event is in a marquee, large garden or other outside space please talk to us about the power supply we need and remember we need to have cover available in case of rain as our equipment doesn’t mix well with water!
As you would expect, we have Public Liability Insurance and all of our
equipment is PAT tested and so if your venue requires details of this,
please just let us know.
How reliable are we?
Once you have booked us, you can rely on us. In the extremely unlikely
event that one of us is too ill to play, we have backup musicians available.
If it is Bob who is ill – and this has only happened once in the last 5 years - we will let you know in advance that a different singer will be performing.
What if I have to cancel?
We understand that things don’t always go to plan and sometimes events need to be rearranged or cancelled. Whilst your deposit is
non-refundable, we will happily put the deposit that you have paid towards another booking if your event goes ahead on a different date provided that we are available on that new date.
