Hear all of their biggest songs including Worldwide Number 1 hit Stay Another Day, and many more, as well as an exclusive live performance of Woman Trouble
In the 90s East 17 was one of the biggest bands in the UK and sold 18 million records worldwide! They achieved 18 Top 20 Singles and 4 Top 10 Albums in the UK and had over 30 Number 1 singles in many different countries with the top hit “STAY ANOTHER DAY”!
East 17 took their name from their Walthamstow postcode where they formed in 1991, the line-up originally consisting of John Hendy, Terry Coldwell, Brian Harvey, and Tony Mortimer.
Their shaved heads and tattoo style gave them an edgier more street look than their rivals ‘Take That’; their style, a mix between pop and hip hop lyrics reflected a much cooler image.
East 17 achieved 12 Top Ten hits on the UK singles chart between 1992 and 1998 and their debut album ‘Walthamstow’ shot straight to No.1 in the UK Album Charts. This album contained a string of Top 20 singles including: “House of Love”, “Deep”, “It’s Alright”, “Let It Rain”.
The band’s second album ‘Steam’ featured their best-selling hit “Stay Another Day” which remained No.1 in the UK for five weeks and was the 1994 Christmas Number 1! East 17 are the ideal headline attraction for Christmas Light Switch On Events! The band went on to release 3 more albums, “Up All Night”, “Resurrection” and “Dark Light”.
Brian Harvey and Tony Mortimer left the group in 1997 and although they have had a few come-back reunions they are no longer with the current line-up which still features Terry Coldwell. Robbie Craig joined East 17 in early 2014, and TJ who was Beyonce’s backing dancer joined in 2019! East 17 are gaining momentum again with a number of tours scheduled.
East 17 is the ideal headline band to hire / book for Christmas Light Switch On Events everywhere! This 90’s Boy Band will entertain any crowd and family audiences, and, when combined with Snow Machine hire, their Number One Christmas Hit ‘Stay Another Day’ will be the ideal finale to your Christmas event!

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
