About Us

Hey! We’re Crème Brûlée, a 5 piece party band from Manchester who love to play the songs you want to dance to.

Crème Brûlée started in 2016 as “The Groomsmen” when James (Bass) was planning his wedding and realised four of his groomsmen - his brother, Ben (Guitars & Vocals), Rick (Keyboards, Guitars & Vocals), Scott (Guitars & backing vocals), and Pete (our first Drummer) were all experienced musicians. A plan was formed to create a band so that he could fulfill his dream of... playing at his own wedding!?

As bizarre a dream as that was, it was so much fun to play music together at a party, that we decided we’d like to get together regularly to do it some more! Pete had a job in ‘that there’ London though, so we recruited Luke (another amazing drummer) to take his place and Crème Brûlée was born!

We love what we do because it’s easy to know if we’re doing a good job by how full the dance floor is! We’ve spent the last 5 years honing an eclectic repertoire from 60s classics right up to present-day pop so that we can play something for everyone and help to create a fantastic atmosphere for you and your guests. We love to help people celebrate; performing for birthdays, weddings, private parties, and you might even catch us playing to a pub crowd now and then!

If you were wondering, the name of the band is a reference to a TV show we all loved in the early 2000s. If you know, you know. As Les McQueen would say, "It’s a sh*t business"... (but we’re glad we’re in it!).
