The Reason were formed in 1995 by Jon Wade, Rick Allenby and Chris Rayner. Andy Milner joined the band on drums in 1999. They have performed hundreds of gigs across the North of England at beer festivals, weddings, corporate functions, birthday parties, black tie dinners, Christmas parties, high school proms, university balls, the list goes on. They add their own style to classic songs from a range of genres but also remain faithful to the originals. As well as being accomplished musicians, they all sing, providing four part harmonies that can often be missing from other function bands.
