Fake Plastic Chairs - Bristol Wedding Band!

Welcome to the Fake Plastic Chairs website. We are a Rock/Pop party and wedding band for Bristol, Wales and the South West. If you have an event in and around the West Country and you need a band to get people up on their feet and dancing then we're the band for you. Check out our audio demos below, peruse our song list and book us before someone else does! 

Here’s what we sound like!


The Fake Plastic Chairs were everything we wanted in a band for our wedding and more. We always had a full dance floor and we liked the fact that they played songs that people know but in their own unique style. They are proper, really talented musicians with a bit of edge and originality, much cooler than your average covers band!

We had the best night and will always remember bouncing around and singing at the top of our voices with all of our favourite people. They even learnt our first dance song for us and humoured us by doing a special feature we came up with for our guests. We took a risk because we hadn’t seen Fake Plastic Chairs live before our wedding but it completely paid off. Such nice guys and they turned up promptly, exactly as planned, and it took minimal effort on our part to book them and arrange things with them. The whole process was pretty stress free and a 5* experience all round.

To the Fake Plastic Chairs,

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding – you put on an awesome show and we had the best night ever! So many guests told us how impressed they were and we were also blown away. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding party a night to remember for everyone with the beautiful first dance song, awesome sets and fab marryoke!

Hope you enjoyed it too!

Love Emma and George

You’re the best 🙂

Charlie was great to deal with beforehand, friendly and always willing to help with the many questions we had! On the night the band were fantastic; we hadn’t given a set playlist but they knew exactly what songs to play when and everyone said how brilliant the band was. Huge thanks for making the evening so much fun – one friend commented that they’d never seen so many people up dancing at a wedding before!

The Fake Plastic Chairs were fantastic at our wedding on 22nd Oct 2016. We discussed what kind of set we’d like prior to the day, lead singer Charlie was flexible and really accommodating of all our requests! They were great fun, relaxed, and very talented musicians who kept the dance floor packed all night! Everyone had a brilliant time!

I just wanted to say thank you very much for playing at our wedding. Everybody said you guys were really great and had a fantastic time dancing – apparently a few asked you for requests throughout the first set and were amazed that you were happy to play them, so I can’t really thank you enough for being so hospitable and accommodating to our friends and making their night so great.

No doubt it goes without saying that Bethan and I had a great time dancing to the second set you played (and of course the last few songs of the first set including Superstition), we couldn’t have been more pleased with how it went, especially as the dance floor was full throughout the entire time you played so thank you again so much for your choice of songs to play, it did exactly what I was hoping for. And of course including Iris at the end and finally getting Bethan to cry was the icing on the cake! Absolutely brilliant.

I hope you guys had a good time playing as well. All in all it was a perfect wedding and we are so glad you guys were the band playing to give a perfect finish to the day. Thank you so much, we genuinely couldn’t have been happier with how it went.
