“My new husband (!) and I were incredibly impressed with The Band. They went over and above to deliver a fantastic evening of live and DJ entertainment at our wedding, and their professionalism, flexibility and above all quality far surpassed our expectations. Our guests were full of how fab they were, and the dance floor was packed all night!

“The band were amazing and really helped to make our wedding day so special. We could have not have asked for more. All our guests commented on how great you were. Neither of us will ever forget our first dance with your amazing version of “Thousand Years” and also all of our wedding party dancing to you playing “Sex on Fire” at the end of the evening. You really did make our day very special. Thank you so much. Andy and Karen”

“Had the absolute pleasure of working with The Band at Believe Christmas Parties throughout the first three weeks of December. So impressed with how professional, friendly and helpful they were in the build-up to the event and throughout – nothing was too much trouble and their main priority was our guests and ensuring that they had the best experience possible, which helped in putting our minds at ease during a very stressful period. Very engaging and a huge hit with our guests (proven by a full dance floor every evening!) Would definitely recommend for any event where a fantastic live band is needed. Thank you so much again 🙂 x”
Emily Tolley, Bristol
“We could not have asked for a better wedding band. The dance floor was always full and all our guests commented on how great you were!! The silent disco was so much fun. You guys were so easy to communicate with, nothing was too much trouble, everything went so smoothly. We would 100% recommend you to anyone looking for a great party!! Thank you so so much. Grace and Eric xx”
Grace and Eric, The Barn at Upcote
“The Band performed at our wedding in July, they were absolutely amazing and very accommodating… we asked them to perform our first dance – All I want for Christmas! It wasn’t something they usually sang but they rehearsed leading up to the wedding and got into the spirit by dressing in Christmassy outfits which was a surprise, even for us 😂 thank you guys for making our first dance so memorable for us and our guests.”
Holly Wright, Elmore Court
“Thank you so much for a brilliant performance last night. Please pass on my thanks on behalf of the Mess and attendees last night to the rest of the band and of course to Billie-Jo for running the photo booth too. Everyone loved your set and I am so pleased you had the dance floor buzzing.
All the best Heidi”
