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”

Thank you again to Chris & the band”

“A huge thank you to Chris and The Shakers for playing at our wedding at Priston Mill on 13th May.
We had seen the band a few times at gigs so we knew they were excellent,but they absolutely rocked our wedding, the dance floor was full from start to finish, young and old! It was just what we had dreamed of.
Not only were the band great, but Chris gave us some great advice beforehand about timings etc based on his experience- which was spot on and really helped. They set up and packed away quickly and dealt directly with the venue so didn’t disturb our day at all.
Really professional and most importantly played great floor filling classics, and the vocals worked perfectly with every song.
Finally, the band also managed our playlist for before their set and during the interval too which was fab. If you are thinking of booking this band- do it!”

It was also convenient that the band were familiar with the venue. We would highly recommend them!”
Jimmy & Hollie Stansfield, Bristol

I can now save you that Time. Book the Shakers Band you cannot go wrong. A great bunch of people to deal with and highly talented Musicians with a very professional presentation of all the songs that will get your party dancing until the end of the evening. The Shakers Band are the Real Deal.”

The addition of a Photo Booth just ticked all of the boxes and our evening was complete – a huge success. A huge thank you to The Shakers Band!”
Anita Gent, Welcombe Hotel
“The Shakers Band were fantastic at our wedding. We requested a first dance that wasn’t on their play list, and they were more than happy to accommodate. Their version of ‘you are the sunshine of my life’ was brilliant. The sets they played were relevant to the people on the dance floor, and they kept everyone moving. They were happy to be flexible on the night when we had to make some last minute changes to when food was available, and when the cake was cut, and they liaised directly with the venue where necessary. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”
James & Anna, Bickley Mill
“We booked The Shakers for our wedding celebrations after watching their promo video & we are so pleased we did, they exceeded all expectations. They really started the party, getting young and old up dancing within minutes of playing. They performed our first dance song wonderfully. Many guests have passed comment on how great the band were throughout the evening & the dance floor was never empty.
The band were discreet in setting up/down & were really responsive to all communication beforehand.
We all had a fantastic time and can’t thank The Shakers enough! Now looking for an excuse to have you play again!!
Thanks again, and we’ll be sure to follow you and come and see you play in the future”
Hollie & Ashley Halls, St Audries Park
“The Shakers band made our day and night! The duo came and set up without a fuss and the band were very professional and interacted with the crowd, they were great fun. I organised our wedding from Australia and it was clear to see on their website that the band would be great. We didn’t want an average wedding band and the Shakers band exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend booking this band!”
Lauren & Andy Hardiman, The Haymeadow
“The Shakers Band were recommended to us for our wedding and we will be doing the same! We opted for the Jazz duo followed by the four piece band and DJ and couldn’t be happier with how the whole night went! The band were discreet to set up/shut down and the transition between band and DJ was so smooth. The band had everyone up on the dance floor within minutes of playing and we remained there all night! It was a brilliant atmosphere and we can’t thank them enough.”
Bethany & Chris Wivell, Backwell
“Booking a band for the most important day of your life is nerve racking, to say the least. We really liked your website and the clips, but it still wasn’t an easy choice. After much deliberating we decided to take the plunge.
In the build up you were really responsive to all of our questions & on the day you turned up & set up discretely and when we were ready to go, you put on a great show. Not only did you sound amazing, you looked the part as well. With a professional setup, great set list and enough energy to keep everyone going all night. It was absolutely fantastic & we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
We couldn’t recommend you highly enough it capped off an amazing day and the fact that you setup outside under the fairy lights so we could dance away the night with friends & family was magical. My only regret was that you had to stop.
Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. I don’t know what I had to worry about!
Best of luck with the rest of the year, I hope it’s a busy one.”
All the best.
Josie and Tom Mardle, Wellington
“Dealing with The Band was an absolute pleasure – at every stage. They responded to any query quickly and efficiently (which certainly set them apart from other bands we investigated). They kept in contact all the way through from booking to the event. Their website demonstrates how seriously Chris and the others take their business. On the night they arrived, set up with no fuss, put on an amazing performance, played the music we wanted to hear in between their sets and made our ‘wedding do’ the ‘party’ we had wished for. Thanks to all of you”
Carly and Wayne, Martock
“Our 1st dance with you guys!! We cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing you were! Everyone has been asking where we found you and I’ve heard nothing but compliments! You are truly fantastic!! Thank you Matthew for putting me in touch with them!! Having you guys as the duo while we were eating was perfect too! I’m your new number 1 fan!!”
Jo Dalby, Haselbury Mill
“We chose the shuffles having seen them play at our friend’s wedding. They are a fantastic band and play a wide variety of music which is ideal for weddings and ensured the dance floor was heaving all night! They even accommodated our first dance song for us despite the short notice (sorry!) – and nailed it! In short; a perfect band!
Joanna & Rob, Oldwalls Gower
