About The Institutions

The Institutions are not another cover band. Their style will make family and friends dancing all night long while listening to their favorite songs. As entertainers, they stay energetic the entire time, which results in a lively, contagious vibe to everyone around them. Their wide variety of genres and experience makes them professionals in the industry. The three-piece band is trustworthy and fun, ensuring a wonderful entertainment experience.


Each member of The Institutions has more than 15 years of experience performing and playing. Beforehand, they were on BBC. Today, they play at many high-profile events, which they have been able to accomplish by performing for many years and constantly finding ways to improve.

Services offered

The band offers rock, pop, and latest hit songs. Weddings are given two, one-hour sets, with a 30-minute break between sets. An additional 10 minutes are given for the encore. Longer sets are possible upon request. You are also provided with a full PA system with your booking, either full back-line or digital, as well as a high powered lighting rig and haze machines.

How they work

The band suggests booking as soon as possible. However, it's best to book them no later than three or four weeks so they have adequate time to prepare. Typically, it takes an hour and a half to setup everything. They can do open-air acts and work additional hours if needed.

    We have them play at our wedding just before the DJ come on and we didn't expect such a good response from our guests. The music was outstanding and the lights and bass were just amazing. I would be more than happy to see them again at a friend's wedding. We can't thank them enough!
