Biography

Designed for lovers of funk, soul, RnB, hip-hop, soul, and Motown, the very aptly-named Good Times perform as a 4 or 5-piece band (lead vocals, keys, guitar, bass, and drums with backing vocals). The band has been bringing soulful party anthems to weddings and events across the country since 2017, and they've supported and/or performed with Jamie Cullum, New Kids On The Block, Dan Gillespie Sells (The Feeling), Billie Ray Martin, Coree Richards (Damage), as well as playing stellar events such as Leeds/Reading Festival, the Isle of Wight Festival, Radio 1 Big Weekend, and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Good Times lead vocalist, Shamyra, has featured in NME and on BBC Radio 1Xtra, and her smooth and rich vocal tones evoke soulful icons like Sade, Lauryn Hill, and Whitney Houston.

Shamyra studied Professional Musicianship at the prestigious British Institute for Modern Music, so you can expect an incredibly professional performance every time, as Good Times mine their seemingly bottomless repertoire. On top of that, Shamyra's warm and friendly personality will win you and all of your guests round from the very first song.

Reviews

We would like to say a big THANK YOU for the excellent music and service provided by Good Times. Especially thank you for letting us customise the set. The booking was easy, the music was exceptional and the band were professional and easy to work with. We had an overall brilliant day, and I think having the music all night from 6pm until the end was a key part of that. Thanks for doing such a long set for us. - Jack & Bruce, Wedding, Manchester

Good Times were a great hit with our guests and we received a lot of positive feedback on their performance. We selected a playlist for the band and the choices we made were just right for our audience, encouraging people to get up and dance. It is a little daunting booking a band you have never heard play live as you are never quite sure what you are going to get; I can honestly say that Shamyra and the band met our expectations (and they are quite high) and delivered a fantastic evening’s entertainment. Not only did they sound excellent but Shamyra also brought personality to her performance. We would recommend to anyone. - Fiona & James, Wedding, Hertfordshire

After not having much luck finding the perfect band for our wedding, we came across Wedding Jam. They were so incredibly helpful with band recommendations but one fit the bill perfectly…GOOD TIMES. Communications and help from Wedding Jam prior to the wedding was absolutely faultless and soon put our mind to rest about the booking. Chatting to the team in the run up to the big day, made me so excited to hear Good Times perform, they knew exactly what we were after. Hearing them on the night was better than anything we could have imagined, it was like a very intimate concert and by the end of the night, every person was on the dance floor; we did not leave it all night! - Ruth & Charlie, Wedding, Kent
