About Us

Who Are We?

The Distractions are a premier UK Party band offering a selection of Singers, and Musical packages for weddings, private parties and corporate events.

Where Have We Come From?

The Distractions Band was formed in 2008 by the current band manager (Joseph Malik)

After he studied at an independent music college in Coventry. Since then the band has grown to encompass a larger group of musicians and lead singers, and  will keep on growing and adding to its products and services.

What Are We Doing?

Our primary aim is to provide you with a musical experience that can be customised to your personal requirements and tailored to your budget, size of venue, or time constraints. No two clients are the same, and so 6 lead singers are available who specialise in different Genres enabling us to cater to varied tastes. Having different lead singers also helps our clients when booking us on a recommendation, as they can be confident of our quality, but also change options to ensure that they have their own ‘version’ of ‘The Distractions Band’

Our secondary aim is to use a percentage of our profits to invest in the lives disadvantaged people in the UK. We have two charities that we support, A homeless shelter in Cambridge, and a Flood bank in Derby City Centre.

Our Values.

We treat all clients with the same respect regardless of age, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

We maintain professionalism at all times, and a working attitude based on honesty and integrity. ! We Strive to provide the best service possible, by ensuring flexibility in our line-ups, set-up time, noise level, and style of music.

    We stumbled across The Distractions at the National Wedding Show in Birmingham, back in March 2013. As soon as I (Ellie) saw the band in action I knew they were perfect for our wedding. I contacted my partner who checked them out on Youtube straight away and agreed to go ahead with the booking.

    Well, it is now nearly a month since our wedding day, and we can both say, without a doubt, The Distractions were the perfect band for us! I cannot put it into words how happy and grateful we were for the band to learn out first dance, as well as two other songs of our request, they were all so helpful and friendly. Our guests LOVED The Distractions, the packed dance floor proved this!

    The selection of songs were brilliant, there was something to suit everyone, and the band were extremely professional and friendly during the whole process from booking to packing away after the celebrations had finished! I cannot thank The Distractions (especially Joe for answering all of my emails!) enough for all of their hard work… I hope we can find another event soon to book you for!

    The Distractions were fantastic! I had been recommended them by some friends who had them for their wedding in July 2013, and had enjoyed them then, but they exceeded by expectations on the night and were even better than when I first heard them! Their band manager was excellent in dealing with the reception who had very strict terms and conditions, and communicating well with my parents and I.

    They were happy to play 3 songs we requested not on their set list and played them brilliantly. They were really flexible on the night as they were due to come on earlier but due to the speeches over-running were delayed! They then also made sure we got our ‘money’s worth’ and played extra at the end.

    The lead singer was also great at interacting with the guests and creating a fun atmosphere. Mark and I would DEFINITELY recommend them and hope we get to hear them again – best wedding band ever!…perhaps if my sister gets married we can hire them again!!
