Our Clients

Who we play for

Combining a rock band and DJ beats to create a unique dancefloor-filling live show featuring samples from the original artists. For clients with something to celebrate.

Corporate

The greatest clubland bangers, played live by a rock band + DJ. Contemporary and exhilarating.
Ideal for corporate events, brand celebrations, festival headlines and unique parties.

Festivals

Our signature show. The hybrid ‘Ibiza meets Glastonbury’ party show – serious fun for everyone.
Ideal for corporate events, awards shows, headline artist support, private parties.

Private Parties

A mix of dancefloor fillers, Christmas bangers and the biggest hits of the year.
Ideal for corporate Christmas parties, end-of-year celebrations.

We are 100% live.

We sample the artist and add it to the mix.

The minute we started dropping samples into our live set and saw the crowd reaction, we realised the game had changed. Is it a DJ? Is it a band? Who cares — it’s more fun than a bus full o’ monkeys.

A lucky dip of session musicians.

Consistent line-up. Consistent chemistry.

Did we mention that The Lightyears are made up of friends and brothers who have been playing in the same line-up since we were kids? We’re like a family, and when we get booked for an event, we bring our audience into that family.

Bands play songs.

We play blocks.

We look like a band, but we think like a DJ. So instead of playing single songs, we build dynamic blocks of music that flow together — keeping your event rocking from start to finish.

Seen it before…

Never seen anything quite like this…

Had enough of the sales talk? Want to hear what we actually sound like live? Oh, go on then… 😉

Our Signature Mix

Just like other bands, except totally different.
This is how we do what we do.

Take one lead singer and a stack of harmony vocals

Live Instruments

Add the raw power of a five-piece pop/rock band

DJ Beats & Samples
