  • House Concert (Birthday Party)

    “I can’t thank you both enough for making my party so special. I loved the way you both got the audience involved with the percussion instruments and put everyone at ease. Everyone told me how amazing you were and I agree. My sister in law told me she wants to adopt you so you can perform at every party she goes to”

  • Wedding Entertainment

    “The videos of these guys really don’t do them justice. If we could capture the magic and memories they created on our wedding day for all to see they would be booked everyday for the next ten years. We booked them for our wedding breakfast and evening entertainment and could not have asked for a better band. Absolutely perfect. If you are looking for entertainment that will keep your guests talking then don’t hesitate to book these guys. They go out of their way for even the strangest requests and get everyone involved in such a fun and relaxing way. I never thought I’d see my Great Grandma rocking a cow bell. Don’t look around for a better band because you won’t find one, we are just looking for another excuse to book a party so we can have them back”

    “My family and I had the pleasure of this lovely duo, at my cousin’s (The Longfields) wedding, on a beautiful sunny day in Southport. The fantastic choices of songs and the interaction of The ‘Misfits’ with the guests (including the wonderful idea of instruments for the children), helped to make this one of my most treasured family days. I would recommend The Ragtag Misfits to anyone, who wants make their event a really nice place to be”

We booked them for 1 acoustic set, however due to the fact our DJ had not turned up they immediately came to the rescue. Without any hesitation they had left to go and get their leads and lights to finish off our wedding with a bang. Truly gifted musicians and wonderful people. Xx”

Laid back but funky and fun! Perfect! The comments from our guests gave us such a buzz as well knowing that they thought the same as us. So many people, young and old made a point of telling us that they thought you were something special, especially sharing your instruments and getting them to join in. You were a big part of our special day. Thank you again and we can’t wait to see you again x”

  • Christening

    “We booked The Ragtag Misfits to entertain guests at our daughter’s Christening party during the summer. We were looking for something different to the usual “disco dj” and also needed to keep both adults and children happy. This eclectic duo brought an almost “festival vibe” to the party and were truly amazing, playing recognisable tunes in their own (I guess you could call it “bohemian”) Rag Tag style. What’s more, they provided a guitar case full of percussion instruments so the little ones could join in, such a wonderful touch. It got too hot on the day of the party and the Rag Tag Misfits moved outdoors for the last hour, something a DJ wouldn’t have been able to do so easily with all the setting up needed. Helly and Andy are professional, reliable and friendly as well as fabulous entertainers. Thank you so much – everyone loved you”

  • Festival

    “The Rag Tag Misfits have been enthralling the crowds at Manor Farm Music Festival since it’s birth. Expect an all inclusive gathering of foot tapping, home spun frock songs with heart warming lyrics on life as it is. Echoes of social justice and solidarity unite familiar ‘sing along’ covers with the Rag Tags signature bongo/ harmonica grooves to create a ‘feel good’ easy going festival vibe that has brought these guys back year after year”

Music, fun, and laughter, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate my special day. Thank you to Andy and Helly, you were truly amazing. I am trying to come up with a reason to have another party. My guests would welcome you back with open arms. If you are planning a special occasion, choose Rag Tag Misfits. Andy and Helly send you a list of songs in advance that you can choose your favourites from, making your event even more personalised to you.

They were fast to respond to our emails, super helpful and sweet and learned a very special song for us to play me down the aisle at our wedding. They make a wonderful team, the music is amazing and they are so down to earth and lovely! They played before and during our ceremony and then during our canape reception afterwards. Everyone loved the music and we couldn’t have been happier! We can’t recommend them enough. Thank you so much Helly and Andy!!! ~The Kellys xxxxxxxx”

    “We booked Rag Tag Misfits for our wedding party at Bluecoat in Liverpool and what more can we say than WOW. From initial booking to informal meet up where we asked for three specific songs not on their playlist (You’re the Radio, Songbird and Penny Lane) to the night the communication and personal attention was all spot on. Our friends and family who joined us loved Andy and Helly and their individual style of upbeat and eclectic songs in a real informal style complimented by getting involved with all kinds of percussion instruments to join in with. Absolutely brilliant and couldn’t recommend highly enough if good times are wanted at any kind of party or gathering. Thank you once again for making our party one that will live in the memory for a very long time to come x”

    “The Rag Tag Misfits performed at my daughter’s wedding. They proved to be an inspirational choice. Being only two people with minimal equipment they could perform anywhere. They popped up on four different occasions one outside the others inside. Not only did they play lively and catchy tuneful music which children and adults could dance or enjoy listening to, they provided various musical implements for general use. They were very accommodating to our requirements and provided a very happy atmosphere to the evening’s entertainment. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any function”
