Hi, welcome to our website!
The Distance are Mat O’Neill and Sophie-Dian Jones, an acoustic duo specializing in all-day wedding entertainment. Our performances span a wide range of popular songs from as early as the 1920s right up to modern day hits and chart songs.
We perform vocal harmonies with acoustic guitars, ukulele, harmonica and have recently introduced a loop pedal to give us a little extra in the way of percussion. The result is a sound that can be anywhere from soulful background accompaniment to a wedding breakfast, to a full on party with stage lighting and a powerful PA system. We can provide musical entertainment for your entire wedding day from the ceremony right through to the end of the evening reception, or we can perform a single set at your birthday party, company event or house party. We’re very flexible with timings and are able to travel all over the UK.
We’re constantly updating our set list with new songs as well as changing the instrumentation to suit
