Our music, instruments and costumes are all accurately researched, but we're not hardened academics. We play music that's an instant hit with most audiences. We use 16th century improvisation techniques to keep the music fresh. Every performance is different, and we make sure that the tempo, style and instrumentation change regularly. No-one gets bored at a Diabolus gig. Weddings and Corporate Events. We're an obvious choice for any event with a Tudor theme, or Medieval if you're not being too precise. But the event doesn't have to be historical. Many people book us just because we sound good, look pretty, and make them laugh. We're experienced entertainers, and we specialise in breaking ice. We blend in - no amplifiers, no music stands, no stage required. Just gorgeously attired musicians producing professional, colourful, exciting music, live and unplugged. And we're versatile. If the timings don't go to plan, we can adapt. We provide more than just music. Paul's stentorian tones are useful for announcements, David can provide trumpet fanfares, and gadget addicts love the hurdy-gurdy. If your guests are up for a bit of participation, we'll get them singing, dancing and generally making fools of themselves. For really keen dancers, we invented the Tudor Ceilidh.

As an added visual aid to the music, a client may choose to have one Polynesian beauty gracefully dance in accompaniment. ‘Highly recommended as an exotic sound to greet guests. True Island flavour!’ Come and experience the sounds of the Pacific! Polynesian String Bands Overview: ‘From Tonga to Cook Islands to Tahiti, string bands exemplify the laidback Polynesian attitude toward life. Groups of musicians are still found playing at social gatherings of all kinds: dances, BBQs, kava parties, youth festivals and competitions. Small choruses sing in a soft falsetto. Bands incorporate various adopted instruments such as the ukulele, the backbone of the string band, and guitar. Ukuleles and guitars were introduced to Polynesia beginning in the late 1800s, and by the 1920s strumming under palm trees had become a favourite pastime. Though string bands were initially devoted to playing parties and clubs or backing dance troupes before electricity was widely available, the increasing popularity of electric bands and local pop and hip-hop variations hasn't completely blotted out the large-band format. If anything, tourism has provided more opportunities for gigging string bands to make a living with many Polynesian restaurants and wedding sites highlighting the region's bands. National Geographic'

They are based in London, but have travel led all over the world, from Dublin to Dubai!Playing Salsa, Merengue, Bugaloo, Bomba, Lambada and more - representing all the popular Latino rhythms and countries, from Cuba to Colombia via Santo Domingo, this band will guarantee an excellent night's entertainment, for top dancers and left-footed tropical party-goers alike. "Coco" means coconut in Spanish, and the band is guaranteed to bring you all the flavour and heat of Latin America and the Caribbean. Coco Xpress features Latino singer Guillermo with not only a rich voice but also an entertaining manner and some hilarious routines. Also in the front line is female alto sax/ flute player Nina: not only a strong musician but also a smooth dancer - to make the band as easy on the eyes as it is on the ears! The line-up is rounded off with Rivera swinging on bass guitar, Dominican Wilson "El Diablo" - a maniacal devil at the piano, and Hamis on conga drums - a talented group of musicians who know that on-stage presentation and lively performance is every bit as important as talented musicianship. As a 4 piece band, they comprise 4 singing musicians - and playing hand-percussion, piano keyboard, bass guitar and sax/flute, with sequenced percussion. With the addition of a 5th musician, you get live conga drums to really get the groove going. Coco Xpress is equally suitable for parties, weddings (more than 200 played so far) and corporate events as it is for full-on Salsa dance nights, and will bring a repertoire of songs suitable for whichever occasion. They can also provide CD background music between sets, professional dancers or displays, dance classes, DJ's and other ideas to make the evening swing. They are based in London, with frequent appearances in the Capital's busiest salsa venues, but will travel anywhere, and even performed nightly for 3 weeks at a "Holiday Inn" nightclub in the Middle East.
