So you’ve got space for a full band and you know what you want – a slick, experienced and reliable function band. Well, look no further than Jolly Polly and the Pirates! All the hits, face melting guitar solos, a full, rich sound with effects to get absolutely the right quality, plenty of lights for the dance floor and a highly professional, polished and honed operation. With over 20 years of function band experience between us, this is what we specialise in, so you cannot go wrong here...Let’s get this show on the road!

-2x1 hour evening party set from £450

Acoustic Duo

An acoustic party duo with a difference! Versatile and a little bit more than your standard “person with a guitar” covers, for this we bring you an acoustic guitar with effects pedals, 2 vocals, vocal effects, lights and more drums and percussion than you could shake a stick at (though David still does) all tailored to your needs and amplified to the appropriate volume to make your party pop!  We play a mix of well known, tried and tested popular songs for singing, toe tapping and full on dancing along to AND we've got the set-up for your venue- big space or little, at a volume to suit your requirements! 

-2x1 hour evening set from £300

Dynamic Duo

"It's like a full band but there's only two of them..!?" 

We use technology to turn one guitar into two guitars...or a synthesizer and guitar...and we turn two vocals into a whole choir! 100% live -no backing tracks here! Sceptics can watch it happen before their very eyes... Offering more than your standard covers-band song choices, this duo brings a good selection of well-known, strategically chosen songs which are cleverly performed to give a dark and bassy, edgy effect suitable for a dancefloor.  They’ll keep you watching and include plenty to get you on your feet and singing along too. Let this dynamic duo make your event stand out from the crowd!

So what can we do for you?

Off Grid Duo

The perfect solution for off-grid gatherings with no access to power. From a winsome wedding in the woods to a birthday bash on the beach, we can use our battery operated PA system to provide a basic but fully portable “pop-up” act to entertain your guests wherever you are! Also ideal for if you have gaps during your event day where you don’t quite know where people will congregate. We can be discreet or crank it up to eleven for an acoustic party anywhere! While batteries last?...No worries- this thing will run for days!

-2x1 hour evening set from £300

"DJ" Band Duo

What else would we call this? It’s vocals sung live to backing tracks but with a live drummer too for a punchier and more vibrant feel that’s so important for getting your guests on the dance floor! OR if you’re looking for something calmer, drums can be swapped for smaller percussion and we can sing “acoustic” style tracks to provide background entertainment. Have you ever seen this live before?

DJ Set add on

We're musicians first and foremost, but that doesn't mean we aren't capable of rounding the night off with a cheeky little DJ set...This is only available as an add-on to other Eclectric bookings so you won’t find us anywhere else.  Seeing as we’re already there with all your lights on the dancefloor and your guests dancing away, it only makes sense that we bring a little extra equipment to keep the party going while the rest of the band is packing up! It’s a great way to end the night!

 

Two people, five+ acts... Simply pick the one that you would like for your event, or pick and mix two sets by two acts... or go big and stage your very own Eclectric Micro Festival! This is one hell of a party at an affordable price as we offer the same price for all events, even weddings! Intrigued? Read on...

All of our micro festivals feature our original act 'False Colours' who are also available for booking should you be interested in original jangle folk.

For False Colours enquiries, e-mail David&Polly here: falsecolours@outlook.com

Award-winning British male/female jangle indie-folk duo ‘False Colours’ bring a refreshing blend of honesty, professionalism and playful self-deprecation to the stage as they perform their unique and intricate style of ‘happy/sad, rhythmic, jangle indie folk music.’

 

Their inventive and ear worm-inducing songwriting combines traditional open and fresh sounding folk style tunes, with a tenor guitar sound which is reminiscent of 1960’s jangle pop -which David plays both rhythmically and melodically, at the same time as providing a percussive drive via a foot pedal cajon. When combined with Polly’s warm and characterful basslines and the never ending vocal harmonies in their interesting but well blended singing styles, the thoughtful lyrics come to life with an original, unexpected sound that is sure to captivate, welcome, divert and uplift the listener.

“I think this is my top song for 2018 [Make Yourself a Sandwich] ... I spent a good two hours yesterday just watching everything  [False Colours content] online and listening to the EP and I’m a fan! I love folk music and feel like this is great. These are great artists and I’m all in!”

Angelle Joseph, Presenter, BBC Introducing in Suffolk (speaking live on air on the Boxing Day Special 2018)

The duo began performing together in 2018 and in their first couple of months were booked to perform at the coveted FolkEast Festival. Being determined not to pass up the opportunity to make a good impression, they recorded, mixed and mastered their first EP ‘Here’s Something’ live in one day and released it that summer. This EP came to the attention of BBC Introducing and has received regular airplay since -as well as becoming a popular hit for listeners of Cambridge 105 Radio, where the title track ‘Here’s Something’ held a position in the Unsigned Chart for twenty weeks.

 

2019 saw False Colours support Miranda Sykes (Show of Hands) as well as being rebooked for FolkEast in another full summer programme of festivals.

 

“Unique and captivating.”
