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.

“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)

“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.”
Emily T (Wedding)

“We booked Simon for a gig at The Chieftain, and we’re so glad we did! He is a very talented musician with a fantastic voice, and a fun, friendly personality to go with it. He’s an overall crowd pleaser and we’ll definitely be booking him again soon.
In short, if you want a night of great acoustic entertainment… Book Simon!”
