Plan C are a five piece wedding and party band with saxophone. Our genre is mainly dance music from the 70’s 80’s and 90’s. We range from Johnny Cash to ABBA and we play lots of classics that are not covered by conventional bands. We are all experienced musicians who have been in the industry performing for many years and two of our members are music teachers. If you like to dance to the classics of yesterday then we are your act!
