The Pop Pickers are an established mature band, based on the south coast of England. We have played over 450 gigs too date covering everything from weddings, hotels, clubs, pubs, birthday/anniversary parties, armed services and corporate events. We play the classic hits from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. The emphasis is on dancing and sing-a-long tunes that everybody knows and can enjoy. We predominately cover the south coast of England but would consider other locations as appropriate.

The Pop Pickers are a mature band and have played in excess of 450 gigs since 2016. It would have been considerably more but the 15 month Covid shutdown resulted in around one hundred gigs being lost. Our experience includes weddings, birthday/anniversary/retirement parties, club events, armed services events and corporate work. We have even played a couple of life commemoration events where a deceased person has requested us to play for the family and friends as their remembrance event.
