Looking for live music for your event?

Alchemy is an established and experienced band with its roots firmly secured in classic rock. However, our large repertoire of mature pop and rock anthems plus a great line-up of vocals, guitars, synth, bass and drums ensures the right mix of live music for Pub, Club, Private Function, Party or Wedding Reception events.

Swanage Carnival.

Alchemy is essentially about classic rock, covering the best from bands such as Free, Deep Purple and Lynyrd Skynyrd; view our song list for a taste of the music we provide. We are often described as "a modern rock-band" but that's only half of it: Alchemy's set includes music from the great days of classic rock to the present, with everything inbetween; a variety of music from rock to soul, blues to country (if we have to).

Based in Bournemouth, Dorset, Alchemy also cover Hampshire, Wiltshire and the south of England.

A Review ......

Roger Stronell - The JuJu Men

Alchemy at The Grange, Southbourne -
I had been meaning to check out "Alchemy" for some time but somehow their dates always seemed to clash with those of my own band. I finally managed to achieve my aim on Friday, 4th April at The Grange Hotel, Southbourne. John, the lead guitarist with Alchemy, though not usually a shy or modest man, had always tended to "understate" his playing in casual conversation. So, to be honest, I wasn't expecting to be impressed.

I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised!
No passengers in this band. The standard of musicianship was excellent and the vocals complete with harmony back-ups were spot on. Though they include a wide range of covers in their set I guess the focus is on classic rock. They captured the warmth of this era perfectly and even included a superb version of "Long Train Running" by the Doobie Brothers, complete with harmonica solo just like the original.

The dance floor was full most of the night and the band came over as very relaxed and actually looked like they were having fun. All too rare in this age of doom and gloom where appearing to have fun just isn't seen as cool.

"Alchemy" - Highly recommended - Check them out for yourself - You won't be disappointed.
