Blame It On The Boogie

by Michael Jackson | Act Up


When forming the band, Act Up’s main aim was to create a high energy group with a wide repertoire across styles and genres that could liven up any event. Unlike most function bands that seem to churn out the same songs year after year, Act Up take pride in constantly updating their set list with both modern and classic hits, giving them the widest range in songs through the decades for any event.
And what’s more, if you let them know in advance of any requests they will be happy to play them at NO EXTRA COST!

Performing together for a number of years, Act Up have developed a band that is simply unbeatable in both quality and value.

Dearest Alex and ACT UP,
You guys were absolutely wonderful!!
Alex- your arrangement of our wedding music, and solo work at our synagogue was heartfelt and helped create the romantic atmosphere we were looking for! THANK-YOU.
Later, at the reception, and even later with ACT UP you guys put everyone in the mood for a great party- which it was!! Loads of dancing, great music- and you guys put in 110%.
