Based In Carlisle, Cumbria

Highly Strung are an 8 – piece wedding and corporate function party band based in Carlisle Cumbria, featuring top-class musicians dedicated to making your celebration a night to remember. Our show has been refined and developed over many years, and delivers not only the professional playing of popular songs from the fifties to present day, but a show that puts the emphasis on PERFORMANCE.

There are many bands out there that can play good renditions of your favourite songs, but not quite so many that engage and spark an audience into dancing the night away and singing along with the band. Typically, at the end of a Highly Strung show, the audience ask for things to continue well after we’ve exhausted ourselves delivering up to 3 sets of top drawer music!

We can travel anywhere in the UK but our main local work is generally based around Cumbria, the Lake District and South of Scotland, We are only 8 miles from the wedding capital of the United Kingdom, Gretna. Dumfries and Galloway are also on our doorstep as well as the beautiful lakes including Windermere, Coniston, Ullswater and Derwentwater in Keswick.

Highly Strung have a fantastic reputation with well over 3000 Facebook fans. Highly Strung Carlisle
