Wishful Thinking




Wishful Thinking are the most dynamic function/ covers band working in the Cotswold area. Our aim is to make music live and make it live.
We work as a seven piece multi instrumental/vocal band covering everything that is good and dancey and we "Do" fill the dance floor. Our target market is corporate bashes and high society weddings and parties. We are also happy to do charity functions at reduced rates and the occasional pub gig just for the fun of it if they can fit us in.
