Midnight At The Oasis



Philosophy is a slick and sophisticated event band, made up of some of the UK's most sought after artists and musicians. Our elite musicians have not only trained at the highest level at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, the London College of Music and the Institute of Contemporary Music, but have working credits that include performing at venues as diverse as the O2 Arena, the Royal Albert Hall and Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, to name only a few.

With Philosophy you get incredible music, but also performance factor, high energy and audience interaction that will have your audience in awe and your dance floor heaving! Philosophy love what they do and that's obvious in every performance, which is why they have worked with greats including Boys II Men and the Glenn Miller Orchestra, toured with The Drifters on their 'Optimum Tour', and supported Passenger. Within Philosophy we have musicians signed to EMI Publishing, vocalists that have performed on BBC One, Sky and ITV, and a band that will give you a show that your guests will truly remember!

It isn't all about the famous names that Philosophy have performed alongside, we even have a celebrity in our midst. Yes you may recognise Sean not only from the X Factor live finals but The Voice UK too, and wow what a voice! Since taking on all those judges, Sean has gone from strength to strength in his own right, supporting the dance troupe Diversity on their UK Arena tour and performing for OK Magazine and numerous celebrity weddings.

For my husbands 40th birthday party we had Philosophy come all the way to Milan to be the cherry on top of what turned out to be the best night! They really got the party started and within minutes the dance floor was full and didn't stop pumping until the small hours. Every one of my guests complimented the quality of the band and its singers, and said they had a wonderful time dancing and singing along to their favourite hits. Thank you Philosophy!
- Anna Buckley- Proli, 40th Birthday, Milan

What can I say...probably the tightest band Ive heard for a while what a sound!
- Simon Mansfield, Vern Allen

I booked Melanie and her band Philosophy for a 60th birthday celebration for my wife. Melanie was a huge hit with everyone, she sang pitch perfect from start to finish with a choice of songs that had everyone dancing throughout the night. Philosophy are true professionals and I cannot recommend them enough.
- Stephen Simpson , 60th Birthday, Marlborough

I had no hesitation in choosing Philosophy to perform at my wedding, having seen Melanie perform numerous times before, even better with her band! They were amazing and our first dance song was sensational, I was really touched they learnt it for me, without need for words . I couldn't recommend Philosophy more.
