BIO

It wouldn’t be unfair to say The Crutwell’s have been around a bit (musically speaking, of course). Between them, Andi and Nico have procured recording and publishing deals, penned top UK Chart Hits for the BBC, written and produced for companies such as Fox USA, 19 Entertainment, Decca Records and Universal and toured with likes of The Pogues and The Stranglers… This doth make a fine brew!

Now, their new guitar/violin duo is here to bring you a fantastic set of acoustically reinvented classics, utilising all their experience and swagger to sonically set your night on fire! Bringing both humour and professionalism, these guys are must for any venue that loves great acoustic music. Strictly no backing tracks, The Crutwell’s aren’t just keeping acoustic music live... they are keeping it alive, and God bless em’ for it.

We are happy to try and faciltate all your ideas with regards to hiring us but here are just a few of the most popular.

Our most popular option, let The Crutwell's give your event or venue the atmosphere it deserves! Good fun, great tunes, great times.

If you feel just voice and guitar would suit your budget and venue more, then Andi Crutwell is happy to offer a solo acoustic set.

Solo Violinist

Why not hire a solo violinist for your event? From weddings to restaurants, this can add a classical touch to any occasion. Nico Crutwell is classically trained but also has an extensive pop repertoire and will happily take requests.

The Works

The Crutwell's can be the one stop shop for your events musical needs! If you’re getting married, why not have Nico serenade you with her violin as you walk down the isle, our live set as a duo during dinner and then the full band for a rocking party till the early hours?!

We can also play music through our PA system to fill out your evening, and are more than happy to compere any speeches or presentations for your corporate event.

Some of the great feedback we have had from our clients

 

1.

I have seen The Crutwells at past events and they are amazing. Really do get the party going. I was having a party myself and had to get them to play. They were outstanding. Everyone commented how amazing they were and asked where did I find these hidden gems. Would highly recommend and will definitely use again in the future. Thankyou for making my night. Hopefully see you both again soon xx

Andi and Nico played at our wedding. The both made the day incredibly special. Such a lovely couple and so accommodating. Hugely recommend. We saw them first at an early birthday party a friend was having and we just had to have them for our wedding day and it was the best decision we could have made for our special day.

We first saw The Crutwells at a friends house party in September 2017 and were blown away.
We spoke to them and asked if they would be interested in performing at our wedding.
We had such good fun planning- emailing and FaceTiming to agree songs and format.
I cannot speak highly enough of how fantastic they were on the day.
Nico performed the electric violin during our ceremony, with a mixture of classic and modern songs whilst we walked down the aisle and signed the wedding register. Wow, it brings tears to my eyes every time I remember it!
They then both performed an acoustic set during our drinks reception and then another 1 hour full set at night, including a fabulous version of our first dance Ain’t nobody by Chaka Khan.
They really did make it a special day and night for us and we would recommend them in a heartbeat!

I booked The Crutwells for my birthday party on recommendation from a friend and it was the best decision ever. From that moment of booking the experience was exceptional. They were in touch several times to confirm the booking and to ensure that the music was exactly as we wanted, even providing a personalised play list for background music between their sets. Everyone complimented our choice of band and guests are considering using them for future parties. I cannot praise them enough for their performance, my advice would be, ‘don’t even think about it’ book The Crutwells and your party will definitely be a resounding success. Live music at its best. Thanks Andi and Nico, you’re both stars!

This is our number one "go to" band for our in house party events. They never fail to add their special kind of magic to the proceedings. Song after song that you recognise but may not have heard for a while but delivered in such a unique way. Maximum marks for professionalism. This is a seriously good outfit with years of experience.
