Superb vocals

The Aesthetic are fronted by the charismatic lead singer and guitarist Calder who has one of the most distinctive male lead vocal voices in a UK covers band. His gritty style and passionate delivery have made him and his acts first choice for bookings all over the country. He is backed by three extremely talented and versatile musicians on lead guitar/vocals, bass/vocals and drums/vocals.


The Aesthetic pride themselves on covering an impressively wide variety of music done in their own style; moving from funk/disco classics by Stevie Wonder for example, to modern folk like Mumford and Sons and indie rock like The Killers, Stereophonics, Arctic Monkeys and Kings of Leon.

They include older classics by bands like T-Rex, Van Morrison, The Kinks, Undertones, Dire Straits and Bryan Adams and their ever expanding repertoire now takes in dance genres like Electronica and Drum and Bass with artists Sigma, Chemical Brothers and FatBoy Slim. Also featuring popular modern names like Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5 and singer-songwriters including David Gray too.

Another prominent feature is always their excellent selection of 90’s hits by bands such as: Presidents of the USA, Pulp, REM, Supergrass, Feeder, Green Day, James, Blur, Oasis and The Verve which has proven to be perfectly reminiscent for the age group most commonly booking weddings at the current time. This repertoire allows them to build an eclectic and dynamic evening of music to suit all ages and tastes, ideal for weddings.

Acoustic band options

The Aesthetic also offer a stripped back acoustic 4 piece lineup which can work if you want a more acoustic/folky feel or if the band need to adhere to certain noise restrictions at your venue. So, if you’re looking for music by the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, George Ezra and more then this could be just the band for you. Check out the Live Acoustic Rehearsal video to get a taster of this!


The Aesthetic have huge experience performing at weddings, corporate parties, private functions and live music venues. They know how to handle a crowd and make sure everyone hits the dance floor. The band vary their set list to keep audiences of all persuasion engaged and are happy to learn new songs for your set as long as they fit within their style.

  1. Highly recommended!

    Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! Everyone had the most amazing time, we couldn’t have hoped for a better night. Everyone was dancing all night. I would recommend you to anyone and EVERYONE! Hope to have you playing for us again in the future!

  2. Absolutely loved this band!

    Absolutely loved this band! We listened to their demo tracks and knew we had to have them for our wedding day! They travelled all the way from Leicestershire to Kent and set up quickly and quietly while we had our wedding breakfast.
    When the time came to start playing, we were up on the dance floor and didn’t leave until they’d finished! They sang our first dance which was amazing and we opted for the DJ sets in between their sets which was a great range of music for everyone.
    If you love Kings Of Leon, Mumford & Sons etc then this is the band for you! Thanks again guys!

  3. Amazing feedback!

    Thank you very much to you and the rest of the band for your brilliant performances on Saturday. We’ve had some amazing feedback as to how much everyone enjoyed your music, so on behalf of Charlotte & Tom and both sets of families we wish you all the best and hopefully we’ll get to hear you again some day!

  4. Thank you!

    Hi Calder & the band, just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing our wedding on the 25th Aug 2017 at Bassmead Manor Barns.

    We loved every minute of your set & you really know how to get the crowd going! You have a great set list & I would recommend you to anyone that is looking to hire a band.

    Thank you!

  5. What can I say but WOW!

    We can’t thank Calder and the group enough for the fantastic experience they gave us for our wedding day. They are worth more and above. If you want the perfect band for your perfect wedding day you HAVE to choose The Aesthetic as they are awesome.

    They are lovely guys and they even sang our first dance song which made our first dance so special. Everyone was so impressed with these guys, nearly everyone asked me for their contact details, which I gladly gave. I would choose these guys over and over again hands down.

    What can I say but WOW!

  6. Absolutely brilliant!

    Everything was absolutely brilliant!! We had so many people say how great the walking acoustic set was. And we loved the selection of music. Thank you so much for providing us with that little something special on our big day.
