The Scratch Band is a well-established London party band founded in 1993. We are experienced and professional and play an eclectic mix of covers from the 1960’s to the present day, as well as our own compositions.

We promise an energetic live show, guaranteed to keep all age groups on the dance floor (or at the bar). Our line-up features keyboards, alto sax, flute, guitars, bass and percussion. We have four vocalists with two lead singers and two backing vocals and often feature four-part a capella harmonies.

We play for charity events, corporate evenings, birthday parties, and any other reason. We have performed at the following, very varied, venues:

Comedy Pub, Leicester Square / Haverstock Arms, Haverstock Hill / Legends, Camden / Interchange Studios, Belsize Park / The Fly, New Oxford Street / The Enterprise, Camden / Tower Tavern, Fitzrovia / Bloomsbury Ballroom, Bloomsbury Square / Basing House, Kingsland Road / White Horse, Parsons Green / The Forge, Camden
