Yubaba

Put simply, Yubaba are “damn cool”, there’s no other way to put it. Combining funk, soul, reggae, drum ‘n’ bass (yep you read that right), dance medleys and loads of other ways to guarantee your party will be jumping, this band are who you need if you want your wedding to stand out from the rest.

Killer lead vocals, plus the boys backing Jess up with their own sweet harmonies, these guys will leave your guests pining for more. Yubaba are predominantly a funk soul band, but here at Dirtbag we don’t have normal bands. Yubaba will turn indie bangers, dance floor anthems and modern hits into super cool, jazz influenced, mash ups. This results in one thing and one thing only, everybody pulling shapes on the dance floor!!

As soon as we started planning our wedding, we knew we wanted these guys to turn our celebration into a party to remember. And they didn’t disappoint. Brilliant covers with a Yubaba twist that instantly drew people onto the dance floor. They’re a lovely, friendly bunch, bouncing with energy who clearly love entertaining.

These guys are unbelievably good! Absolutely rocked our wedding from start to finish. If you’re looking for a band for any celebration, and don’t just want a generic sounding 4 piece that plays ‘shut up and dance’, then Yubaba are the one. They’re organised and reliable and we can’t wait to see them again in Manchester! Thanks again guys, see you soon!

Yubaba played at our wedding in May, and they were absolutely fantastic. I am so glad we went with them!. Initially we weren’t sure about whether to have a band or not, but in hindsight it was the best spend decision we made.
We wanted a relaxed, fun day and the live music was a huge part of making that happen. The band are insanely talented, and their set was perfect for getting the party going after dinner. EVERYBODY got up and danced, it was wild fun.
The band were super chilled to deal with in the lead up to the day, and were happy to take requests (even to the level that Jess wore a full-on sequins jumpsuit at my request, what a legend!).
I can’t thank them enough for helping make the day bloody brilliant! Diolch Yubaba, thanks so much guys xxx
