This week saw a booking confirmed for a performance at Legoland, Windsor, which we are chuffed about! We can’t name the client unfortunately, but they are a large international healthcare organisation! We play regularly for some of the biggest companies in the world. This year we have been honoured to play for Deloitte, Goldmann Sachs, Fujitsu, Allianz and Panasonic, now adding these guys to the list. We love to keep the corporate world rocking!
This time we are going to be playing in the new, and particularly stunning, Legoland Hotel.
We’re really looking forward to this gig and playing at such a cool venue!
We are delighted to announce that we will be performing at WINGS 2014.
WINGS is an incredible International Jamboree Experience for Guides and Scouts aged 10 to 18. It provides seven days of adventure, challenge and fun along with opportunities to take part with others from across the world.

Fleurfest Festival is just around the corner and if there was ever a year to attend, it’s this one. Why? We because, sadly, this is very likely to be the last Fleurfest… ever :( After 10 consecutive years Nick and Andy at the Fleur de Lis, Stokenchurch have decided to being event to a close, but then again, you never know what the future might bring.
So we are hoping to see this year out with a big, fat bang! Read more
!daft! Corporate Function Band
On Wednesday 9th April 2014 we had a wonderful day, and night, at Celtic Manor Resort with the folks of Panasonic to play for the FKOM corporate function. Most of our bookings and events take place at the weekend, this was a break from that tradition with this performance taking place on a Wednesday night. Over the years we have performed for some of the world’s largest blue-chip organisations including Panasonic, Deloitte, Fujitsu, Aston Martin, Goldmann Sachs, the BBC, British Gas and many more. This was in fact the third time we were performing for Panasonic. Read more
Remember the gig we did when we were filmed by Alaska TV from Belgium? Here is the clip that aired in Belgium to over 1,000,000 viewers featuring yours truly.
In December ’12 I got a call from a Alaska TV, a Belgian TV production company asking to speak to us about a special project they were seeking a British band for. We talked and pretty soon I was hooked on their idea and thought it sounded like a huge amount of fun. The project involves us pretending to be a tribute band to a particularly famous Belgian rock group, the aim of the TV show is the audience then has to guess whether we are truly a tribute act or not. The project requires your involvement as well, we will be being filmed at our gig on Saturday March 2nd 2013 at The Old Ticket Hall, Windsor.

What can I say that will show how fantastic !DAFT! were at my wedding? They totaly made the evening and I can’t imagine ever having such an amazing night again!
From the moment we set the date for our big day I knew there was only one band that I could possibly have for my evening recption. My husband to be had never seen !DAFT! play, but I persuaded him that he would not be dissappointed and he definitely wasn’t. Read more
Graeme from !daft! helped organise the 2012 Laughing Stock Festival in Shepperton with festival owners Linda and Jon Jagger. !daft!’s own Doug and Annie providing stage and sound management. The local press attended and provided the following review of the day.
The great thing about !daft! is our ability to scale. We can play to 20 people intimately in a restaurant or bar, 500 people at Laughing Stock or 3000+ at festivals like Fleurfest. Get in touch if you would like to keep all your music, stage and sound management under one roof. It’s much more cost effective.

Right from the start Graeme was helpful and his pre-wedding dialogue leading up to our big day was tip top, he was always on the end of the phone to allay any of our concerns.

Lisa O’HanlonDirectorThe Enterprise Company
!daft! were outstanding and such great fun. They made the night a huge amount of fun.
From the minute I spoke to Graeme I knew we were in safe hands. Graeme was easy to work with and worked with all the requests that we asked for our evening. Then came the actual event….. The band were absolutely superb! Our guests could not stop raving about how fantastic the band played, and how they made the evening go with a real bang.
Sam and Andy Partridge, Wedding
It was great audience participation and loved every minute you were on. I can see why you have such a massive following from your regulars.

We had the absolute pleasure of Daft! perform at my wife’s 40th party last weekend. From the beginning of our dealings with Graeme which started 3 months ago, he has been a wealth of great advice, professional throughout, flexible and amenable to our every need (and we had many).
