Profile:

Firefly were formed in 2001, and have performed hundreds of live stage shows at some of the most prestigious and exciting venues in England.  In September, Firefly headlined at RAF’s Benson’s Battle of Britain concert, entertaining more than 1,000 troops.  Last Xmas, Firefly played at the Lloyds TSB’s Xmas Party at a concert venue with a capacity of 3,500 called The Centaur.  Firefly was chosen as the headline act at the Cheltenham Town Hall, entertaining 1,000 people and at the prestigious and famous 5 star hotel The Royal Horseguards in Trafalgar Square/Whitehall.

Firefly is a group of consummate professionals, whose members have more than four decades of stage experience between them.  Between them, the band members have worked with the likes of The Weather Girls, Steve Winwood, The Wonderstuff, Lipps Inc, Mott the Hoople, Fairport Convention, Robert Plant, Judas Preist, and Nigel Kennedy.  The band has attracted press interest, and its lead singer, Suzy Jacoby, has appeared on BBC television and radio, and recently had two of her songs played on the hit US show 90210 (series 2, episode 17).

Firefly bring energy and verve to the live stage, where every performance is a special occasion.  When Firefly rock a house, they really rock it (at a recent wedding gig, the band did a record seven encores!) Take a look at the rave reviews – from radio stations that have aired them, and from delighted customers who have hired them

Firefly is one of the most versatile bands you’ll ever see.  Mastering many different genres is the true hallmark of an accomplished and professional band, and Firefly will rev up your audience with rock and roll, fizz the house with disco and electro pop, and serenade guests with smooth romantic jazz and ballads.  Firefly has the range and repertoire to delight every musical taste.

I booked Firefly for my wedding, and they were absolutely fantastic!  They had everyone up dancing – people were dancing on the tables at one point!  I was worried in case the older members of the audience would feel left out, but Firefly played such a varied set, everyone really enjoyed the music.
