We’re Soph & Mat!
A looping duo from the North-West. 
We have a HUGE passion for creating live music, Our current show is based upon using our trusty loop pedals, drums, bass, keys and have recently added strings and brass to the mix, Which we’re very excited about! Although, this keeps us very busy, whilst we’re performing, we pride ourselves on creating a ‘full band sound’ live with just two pairs of hands and feet!
Aside from the ‘full band evening show’ you’ll have seen on our website below, we can also perform acoustically… either as a stripped back looping show (without drums and keys etc) or purely acoustic (with 2 acoustic guitars, harmonica, ukulele and vocals/harmonies) this type of show is perfect for ceremony, drinks receptions and the wedding breakfast. 
Feel free to take a look at our videos and photos, If you’d like to see more of the fun click the link below:

    I booked The Distance for my 40th birthday ball a few weeks back. I couldnt have been happier with the whole experience. From booking to the performance they were utterly professional and enthusiastic. They were so hard working and the vocals were stunning. Thank you Matt and Sofiee for being utterly amazing! We will be seeing you again! Chris

    We can’t thank ‘The Distance’ enough!! From day 1 they were superb in everything they have done for our special day. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they are still helping us now!! More than anything though, these guys can seriously play 🙂 every single person at our wedding was on the dance floor and that was priceless.
    Thanks again Sophie and Matt 🙂

    Words cannot describe how much we loved The Distance performing at our wedding. Absolutely amazing, music that suits all and had everyone up enjoying the evening. Sophie and Mat worked well with DJ Andy who together gave entertainment to remember. If you want entertainment to remember you need to book! Thank you Sophie and Mat xx

    Breathtaking vocals, and amazing performers all round. They really made our wedding evening even more fantastic and special. Starting with some slow songs for our first dance together, then moving on to the faster, party anthems as the drinks were flowing and the guests were all up dancing. The Distance can do it all. Absolutely amazing!
