If you’re having a big bash but you’re not really into the clubbing scene then you might have a bit of a dilemma choosing tracks that will keep the crowd on their feet. As one of the top party bands in London, we’re here to help, with our list of the alternative dance classics that will be sure to fill the dance floor whilst still keeping your ears happy!

Madness – Baggy Trousers

A bit of an oldie, it’s true, but one which clears the tables as everybody rushes to the dance floor to break out their best ska dance moves. Whether you’re there for the upbeat tune or the amusing lyrics there’s something for everybody – and the fact that most people already know and love this track can’t hurt.

The Killers - Mr Brightside

Aside from making us feel incredibly old, the fact that Mr Brightside was released all the way back in 2004 means that for today’s young adults it is the song that instantly takes them back to their school days, when it was one of the most played songs at every school disco. We don’t often advocate mimicking school discos… but if you’ve got a young crowd, this is a nostalgia trip which has stood the test of time.

Bloc Party – Flux

As an alternative band which don’t shy away from the use of electronic instruments and even have elements of house infused in their style, Bloc Party are a band that keep everybody happy. We’ve picked Flux as the stand out track for your next party – that catchy chorus should be enough to convince you.

Gang of Four – Damaged Goods

Post-Punk is a great genre for an alt-rock party, and we think that Gang of Four are one of the greatest bands to emerge from the scene. But which song to pick when the catalogue is so good? Of course, the answer simply has to be Damaged Goods; we challenge you to listen to it without at-least tapping your toe along!

MGMT - Kids


As soon as you hear the opening few bars of MGMT’s Kids, you know that you’re in for a treat. Although this is a very danceable track, it’s also a lot more relaxed than some of the other options we’ve highlighted, making it perfect for the end of the night, when the party is starting to wind down but the last few ravers still want to show off their moves.

Of course, nothing will get a crowd moving better than a live band. With a whole host of options for you to choose between, we’re confident that we can boost the mood at any party; to find out more get in touch today – online or at 0845 094 1162.
