Bringing people together through music

Welcome to the home of Hertfordshire based musician Simon Cragg and his 4-piece, 5-star wedding & party band, Simon Cragg Band. 

I am a singer-guitarist with over 300 songs I can play – a mixture of covers ranging from The Beatles, Queen,  Ed Sheeran, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Oasis, and almost anything that is familiar and brings people together…plus a few cheesy classics. Basically…if people enjoy it, I’ll play it! 

I also play with Simon Cragg Band – a pop/rock band made up of myself, a bassist, and a drummer, as featured in the video above. We offer the perfect evening’s entertainment for weddings and parties, and can throw in DJing as well to keep the party going all the way through to the end. We can add additional instrumentalists in, e.g. keyboard, female backing Vox, saxophone as well!!! Get in contact for a quote. 

I also offer a DJ service to keep the party going all the way to the end! All gigs come with a PA system and Disco Lights, as well as Public Liability Insurance.  


I can be booked for events such as:

  • Weddings: playing as the bride comes down the aisle, first dance, background music during meal, upbeat party music, DJ service. 
  • Parties/fundraisers: background music during a meal followed by getting people up to dance or sing along.
  • Pubs/Bars: loads of upbeat fun music to sing along to and create a great vibe.
  • Restaurants: some perfect background music to create an atmosphere while people eat.

“We had Simon and his band play at our wedding recently and all I can say is that they are an absolutely brilliant band. In the build up to the wedding he kept in contact with us finding out exactly what we wanted and didnt want played. Although we had a few wants we were happy to let Simon have artistic licence and they didnt disappoint. They read the room brilliantly, and the dancefloor was full all evening. All the guests raved about the band who absolutely made the evening so much fun. Simon also did a DJ set which again was brilliant. If youre in two minds if to have a band or not at your function, all I can is absolutely do. I cant recommend Simon and his band enough. Well worth every penny” (Adam, band booking for wedding in 2022)

Simon recently sang and Dj’d at my 40th birthday party and was great – his communication pre-event was great and he is such a lovely guy – I got loads of comments during the evening about how good Simon was – can recommend booking him for your event” (Kelly, solo booking for party 2022)

“Simon was fantastic from start to finish. He made the planning extremely easy, had a huge range of songs to choose from (and even learnt one for us!) and arrived early. He made the atmosphere of the party so great, and I’ve had the best feedback from all of my friends who attended – he really got the party going! Thank you Simon, you were amazing!”
Grace C (Engagement party 2022)

“Simon is a brilliant musician and one of the nicest chaps you can hope to meet – I loved a wedding reception where his music kept us all on the dance floor! It works brilliantly when he goes acoustic and solo too. Would highly recommend.” 
Wayne A (Wedding)

“Simon sang my husband and I down the aisle after we were married. He is an excellent musician and a fabulous man to work with. I highly recommend him and his music.”
