Party Central are all seasoned musicians who love to share their passion for music. Three quarters of the band met whilst supporting local jam nights and decided to join musical forces before auditioning for the final member... the rest is history.
With different musical backgrounds, the band focused on choosing the perfect blend of party songs to give the crowd an uplifting evening, which also comes with laughter and a comfortable distinct Party Central stage magic!
