The band are experienced professionals who have all performed across the UK and internationally and make the perfect option for weddings, parties and corporate events.
Helen developed a Caro Emerald Tribute show which went on to develop the requirement for a live band. Initially, this was how The Emeralds were formed and they are currently the only Caro Emerald Tribute band who have acknowledgement from the original artiste. Caro said “I thought it was me!” during a BBC interview. Read more about this tribute show on www.caroemeraldtribute.com
Once the tribute band had formed it was decided that our line up would make ideal entertainment for weddings, corporate events and functions. The high standard of musicianship and repertoire now sees The Emeralds filling dance floors across the country and providing first class entertainment.
