Fronted by the sultry Sabrina, 21 Again features four of the best musicians on the current live circuit. Their collective experience as professional musicians is astonishing and this ensures your party will be a great night cmplete with a band which invites the best feedback you'd expect.
 
Sabrina (Vocals) has been singing and performing from the age of 5. She began as a Ballroom and Latin dancer but quickly found that singing was her true calling. Sabrina has and continues to work with several bands of all styles and has been a very successful private vocal tutor, session singer and songwriter. And, as if that's not enough she also plays Piano, Guitar, Bass and Drums. She has performed in various venues across the country including, The Royal Albert Hall, Theatre Royal and The London Palladium.  Sabrina is also a graduate of performing arts and contemporary popular music Tech Music School in West London

----------------------

Ben (Guitar/B Vox) comes from a musical background. His Dad was a session player at Abbey Road Studios, along with being a regular on the live circuit in and around London. Consequently, Ben spent much of his youth surrounded by music and musicians, by hanging around at his Father's gigs or by listening and learning in the studio. Like his Dad, Ben started out on the drum kit. By the age of twelve he had decided to take the guitar more seriously, and has since spent many hours paying his dues and playing professionally. He has played everywhere, from restaurants and dive bars, to mental institutions and performance halls, in New York, London and Paris. He has a wide taste in music and is comfortable adapting to different styles. The various musical situations Ben has found himself in include: Blues, Soul, Bluegrass, Rock, Heavy Metal, Folk, Country, Jazz and Funk. When he is not busy with 21 Again, Ben writes and performs his own material and can also be found in the studio, working as a session player for other people.

----------------------

Marc (Drums/B Vox) is a performer and tutor who has studied, performed and recorded with many artists from the UK, Europe and the USA. Marc began playing drums aged 12 after being given the choice by his mum, while out shopping in Glasgow’s Barrowlands Market, between a COOL (well, his idea of cool) pair of trainers or using the money as a deposit for a set of second hand drums. He made a good choice and hasn’t looked back since. He still doesn’t own any cool footwear though.  After receiving a full scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston when he was 16 Marc went on to receive his BA (Hons) Jazz Studies from Leeds College of Music in 2001. His influences are extremely varied and having played in all types of bands from Indian Ensembles to Metal bands, Circus Orchestras to Cruise Ship Lounge Bands Marc is extremely comfortable in any musical situation.

John  (Bassist/ B Vox)
Bassist John started his musical career aged 5, playing the Eastenders theme tune on the piano in school assembly. This talent was nurtured by studying classical piano at the Swadlincote Conservatoire of Music. His passion for bass began after hearing recording of The Beatles,  Jaco Pastorius and motown legendary bassist James Jamerson. Johns love for every style of music and his all round professionalism enabled him to become the in demand session bassist in the Midlands. After graduating from Leeds College of Music he was contracted to various cruise ships, cabaret bands, orchestras, a well as recording original music with various bands in London, New York and Tokyo. John currently plays in a variety of bands in London and the south east.  He also teaches bass, guitar, piano, drums and is very busy in the session scene

Testimonials:

21 Again provided excellent music for our London 2012 Olympic Games British Canoe Union & International Canoe Federation Slalom party at Waltham Abbey Town Hall in August 2012. Relaxed, casual mood music greeted us at reception, with a fan fair for our awards ceremony, and a mix of classic rock and contemporary pop for the evening disco. The band played the flexible music we wanted and helped create a great night’s entertainment for all that attended. We would certainly recommend them and use them again. Dont’ hesitate to book them!!

We booked the band for our wedding reception and they were absolutely amazing!  We chose not to request particular songs, relying on them to know what would get people up and dancing, and it was a good decision!  Looking back at the pictures the dance floor was heaving and everyone was having a great time!  The vocalists were fantastic, one friend said that when the Florence and the Machine song came on she actually thought Florence had arrived!
Everyone had a great time and have had so much feedback saying the band were brilliant.  Really pleased we booked them and would definitely get them for the next party!

My fiancee only gave me one job to take care of for our wedding - "sort out a band".  Thank god I contacted these guys, as they gave us everything we wanted for our wedding day and then some. They played classy, instrumental, atmospheric background music in the afternoon while we had our dinner and then turned it up for the evening do, playing all the Rock/Pop classics we had requested. The musicians and their sound team were extremely approachable and totally professional throughout, and lets not forget these guys can seriously play. They were quite simply the best function band I have ever seen, by a country mile, and if the amount of compliments we received from our guests afterwards is anything to go by, 130 other people agreed with us. Thank you,

I saw 21 Again performing at my sons wedding and I was so impressed that I just had to have them play at my birthday party.  They were so professional and played all the Motown requests that I wanted.  I thought it was such a great idea that the band gave me the option to pick my own songs.  I can’t recommend them highly enough and everyone that came to my party loved them just as much as I did.  So, if you’re needing a great band who play what you want then definitely get in touch with  them  and I’m sure they’ll sort out everything you need.   Thanks again guys for a great night and see you same time next year for another amazing party!!!!

You really did provide us with everything we could have hoped for and more.  From the pianist playing for the guests arriving and for our ceremony to the band playing three wonderful sets that kept us dancing all night. We cant stop talking about  how helpful, professional and more importantly, how good musically you all were.  All our friends said the same thing.  Thank you again
