Apollo Greek Band - Greek Band

This Greek Band is one of the very few Greek Bands that have a young Greek dancer as part of the band. The dancer is there not only to demonstrate some Greek dances, but also, most importantly, to allow audience participation where necessary and make sure the night is very fun and entertaining one - You will learn how to dance Zorba the Greek "OPA"!

They have shared stage in several exclusive events with famous entertainers such as:

  • Stavros Flatley
  • Michael McIntyre
  • Leona Lewis
  • David Penn
  • Ricky K

Their goal is to provide the client with Greek and international entertainment to suit their occasion. The Greek band will provide a background music while you enjoy your dinner or/and create a true Greek singing and dancing atmosphere and make your event one to remember.

They can tailor the program and size of the band to the customer requirements. The entertainment choice for your event could start from only a solo performer and could include Greek dancing, belly dancing and DJ Service for the intervals and/or the end.

Apollo Greek Band - Greek Band Feedback

"We were really pleased with the band 100% A+++++++ The guys sang and played beautiful everyone really enjoyed the time. I would recommend The Greek Band to any couple who would like to have great time over one life occasion. Moreover it will be an unforgotten experience which remain in our memories forever. Well done guys keep going!!!!" Elizabeth Kolasinska , Wedding Event, Bedfordshire 

"The Greek Band were thoroughly enjoyed by myself & my new husband & just as importantly our guests. The band rose people to their feet to start & nights celebrations got off to a fantastic start. Thank you Greek band. We are very happy with the service provided." Denise Cachia, Wedding Event, Oxfordshire 

"We, that is me, my daughters and family, were delighted in every way with Georgious and his mate. They pitched it just right and were undoubtably a vital part of the evening, that was a success in all respects. I took one of your cards from them, but now wish I’d asked for a CD. as I run an events centre in Falmouth and would keep them in mind for future occasions. Please convey our thanks to them both for their contribution to the evening." Mike Rangecroft, Wedding Event, Cornwall 

"When they played at our wedding the atmosphere of the whole day was fantastic and we truly believe that the main reason was the music. We had never seem so many people up dancing at the same time. The music was fantastic and everyone that attended our wedding have commented on what a fantastic band they were. We would have no hesitation in recommending them. The communication, the value for money and the service they provided was first class and contributed to what has proved to be a truly memorable day for us! Hope to use them again in the near future!!" Eleni Brice - Barry

"We had the band perform at our engagement party for a group of mixed guests including some Greek and some not. Everybody had a wonderful time and some guests enjoyed being taught the Greek dances. The boys are brilliant, catered to all tastes and ages and helped our party go with an Opah! Will definitely be using them again and would recommend to anyone." Chris & Stacey – Great Yarmouth

"We booked the band to perform at our wedding and they were fantastic. They got our guests up and involved in the Greek dancing and everybody had a brilliant night! 100% happy and would recommend to anybody.." Paul Gauci - Cardiff 

"Great fun filled evening of entertainment… Appreciated not only by Greek family but also friends from all parts of the world." Geraint Holmes - Cardiff 

"We booked the Greek Band for our daughter’s wedding. The guests were mainly Brits with a few Greeks. But right from the beginning everyone enjoyed the mix of Greek, Latin and English music provided by the band. They provided entertainment for a very mix age group, and everyone remarked how well they had made sure that everyone’s taste in music was catered for. I wouldn’t hesitate to book them again." Jan Marakas - Gravesend

"So sorry for the delay in providing feedback. But I wanted you to know that the duo were great fun on the night and really entered into the spirit of the evening. They lead the ladies in some great dancing - they all thoroughly enjoyed it. Gorge was good enough to judge the best dressed lady and got a kiss for his trouble. The whole booking process was easy. The only think that might have been useful was to have the acts mobile phone no. just in case I needed to contact them on the night as I assume you might not have been available for a call." Alice, Ladies Social Night, July 2012
