The Coasters Acoustic Duo

Soulful Acoustic Duo for all occasions

The Coasters are a vastly experienced acoustic duo band based in the North West of England near Manchester.

They play at prestigious venues and events throughout England and the UK.

July 2018

Our next gig is in Merseyside at the beautiful Thornton Manor Wedding Venue.

This is our first gig in a long time in the North West! 

We'll be performing more around the region in coming months and years as we've just bought a house in a town close to Manchester!

We've had a truly wonderful four years on the South Coast playing and teaching music to lots and lots of wonderful music fans.

We've played at weddings, parties, corporate events, on boats and in castles and we've loved every minute of it. 

We are very excited to embark on our new adventure and are really inspired that we'll be so close to wonderfully vibrant cities with rich musical heritage. 

We are still taking bookings for venues and events in the South of England. We'll be playing as a four piece party band at a stunning Southampton Wedding in October, seeing in the New Year with the same lineup at The White Buck in Burley and have some bookings for 2019 in the bottom half of England. 

We're really looking forward to playing at corporate events, restaurants, bars and weddings around Manchester, Cheshire, the Lake District, the Peak District, Lancashire and Merseyside over the coming months. 

See you at a venue somewhere soon!

August 2018 - Life in Manchester

A couple of days after we moved to our new Manchester home we were up in Edinburgh playing at the really beautiful wedding of Manchester based couple Lex & Dan. 

Their wedding was really beautiful and their guests were really lovely people.

We've lots more gigs coming up over the next couple of months around the North West and the rest of the UK.

Late August 2018

We're getting nicely settled into our Manchester home now. 

We've had some great gigs in the North West in the last couple of weeks.

On Thursday 16th August we were at the really wonderful Oakwood Pub in Glossop. We were very lucky to play in front of a great enthusiastic, music loving crowd.

On Sunday 19th we were in Southport playing at The Potting Shed. This great chain has venues across the North and we're booked to play a few of them over the coming weeks.

This week we're back off down South for a couple of gigs. On Friday 24th we're playing at wedding for a really beautiful couple in Hertfordshire, before we head on Tuesday 28th to play for the management team at Southampton Harbour Hotel. 

We'll be back in Manchester for September and in our teaching lives will be kicking off private lessons and group workshops. Additionally, we have some great meetings lined up with some really interesting organisations in the city with a view to working with them as Autumn approaches. 

We're delighted that our calendar for live gigs around Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire is starting to fill up with bookings for the remainder of this year.

We've also taken bookings for 2019, and a couple for 2020 weddings in Manchester and the wider North West area.

Inspiration has struck too in recent weeks with ideas for a couple of new original songs taking shape. 

We're looking forward to showing you our music at a gig soon! 


September 2018

Autumn seems to be stealthily seeping in and this typically sees a slight drop in wedding bookings for acts like us.

Despite the descent of colder weather and shorter days we got to play at the drinks reception at a lovely wedding in Devon last Saturday.

We tied the trip to the South West in with a spot of camping and a couple of cream teas. Beats the usual Travelodge that often accompanies a long distance gig!


At the end of August we played at the really stunning Southampton Harbour Hotel for a private function they were hosting.

We’re back at this swanky spot in October for a wedding for a really lovely couple.

We’re playing during their ceremony as a duo and then as a four piece party band for the evening reception. We can’t wait!

Next month we’ll be playing again at a trio of the lovely Pottingshed bars. We’ll be at their Southport, Bingley and Harrogate venues in October.

We’ve got some exciting stuff to tell you about in the pipeline.

We’re working with new Manchester venues for acoustic duo bookings; have fresh original music in development; we’re working on arrangements of new covers and we’re putting together a fantastic funky four piece party band that has already been booked by eager music lovers for 2018 and 2019 dates.

We hope to see you at a venue soon!
