Last Anthem are the premier North East band for weddings and private functions.

Since forming in February 2007, Last Anthem have performed at hundreds of weddings, engagements, birthday celebrations and corporate functions. Our flexible and detailed approach means we can work with any venue both locally and nationally – our number one priority is to deliver a first class evening that you and your guests will remember forever!


We pride ourselves on our professional and friendly service.

We always work hand in hand with the couple or individual customer and venue staff to ensure your celebration or event goes as well as it possibly can. Many of the couples and businesses that we have played for have become friends of the band over the years, booking us again for anniversary parties, birthday celebrations and other events – a great bonus for us.

Being a North East band, we find around 60% of our bookings come in the North East area.

The advantage to this (apart from us keeping the mileage down, and getting to bed at a half reasonable hour!) is that we have developed really good working relationships over the years with many venues in the region and their staff. This experience and the relationships we have built mean you can rest assured you are in good hands and the entertainment aspect of your evening will run extremely smoothly.

Our set list is designed to cater for all ages and provide something for all the family.

We aim to play the type of song that will stay in your head all day, the tune that makes you turn up the radio, and of course the anthem that fills the dance floor and has everyone singing along with us. Check out our Set List for a sample of what we can choose from to make your evening go with a bang.

We fully understand and realise that the entertainment factor is paramount.

To help the night heat up, we like to get you and your guests on the dance floor (and more often than not on the tables and chairs with us!) and involved in what we do. You would be amazed at how many Grandmas and Grandads we have had up twisting to Sex on Fire!

Last Anthem are a live four piece North East band. With regards to the musicians on stage, we are all professional experienced performers.

We think it’s important that we provide what we say we do – by this we mean we are a fully, 100% live band who will adjust with the evening. If we see you and your guests enjoying the Kings of Leon or Bruno Mars, we’ll throw in a couple of more modern tracks – if we notice people are rolling back the years and dancing to The Beatles or The Kinks, then we’ll probably play a couple more songs to match. We absolutely DO NOT play to pre recorded tracks or have extra pre recorded parts playing behind us. We are a live band, the clue is in the name!

We will work hand in hand with yourselves and your wedding planner, manager and venue staff to ensure that every detail of your evening is taken into consideration.

We can arrange to meet with you and discuss your individual requirements to ensure that we meet and exceed your expectations – our eight years of experience enables us to meet your every need when planning your evening. The playing on the evening is of course important, but the preparation and ensuring that organisational details are taken care of efficiently means you can sit back and have one less thing to worry about when it comes to planning your evening.
