Anthony Lafratta, Wedding, Bristol
“The band was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! They are all really really nice guys and played a massive part in making the wedding the amazing day it turned out to be. Communication with Andy before the wedding was easy. On the day they set-up and were ready to go when needed and were flexible to our changing needs on the day. In terms of the music their set list is great and on the day they just absolutely smashed it!!! We couldn’t have asked for more. They sound great and they know how to get a crowd going; they had everybody up. Literally everyone at the wedding said the band were amazing. And we agree. Choosing a wedding band is difficult but trust me; choose VHS and you will not regret it!!!”
Hil Bosworth, Birthday Party, Dorset
“Second time for us with VHS (daughter’s wedding last year). They are a delight to deal with from beginning to end and wow can they get a party started! Everyone loves their music and they are so talented to be able to play different styles ages and types of music. Andy is just fantastic – so enthusiastic everyone just has to keep dancing and the brilliant drummer must have been playing hard cos he broke a drumstick (which Phil is keeping as a souvenir!). Can’t recommend them highly enough. In fact have already passed on your details to a couple of people.”
Terry Holder, Wedding, Somerset
“Great band. Friendly and courteous. Made contact, as promised, prior to the event. Arrived in good time on the day. Played music that spanned the age range present. The dance floor was full throughout the evening. Could not have asked for more!”
Jennifer Dunne, Wedding, Cardiff
“VHS are hands down the best covers/wedding band we have ever seen! We may be a bit biased but its a month on from our wedding and our friends and family are still talking about how great they were. The band were really accommodating for the fact that we started an hour late so played played a whole set without a break. The set list they picked was perfect and the whole band sounded great. They even invited my husband up for a tambourine solo, his highlight of the day. By the end of the night the whole dancefloor was bouncing and leaving us all shouting for more, “five more songs, ten more songs”. Even after they finished their set they kept the good times going with an excellent DJ set, taking requests from our guests. Communication in advance and on the day was great even accommodating our last minute decision to do a first dance. We couldn’t recommend VHS highly enough and are already looking for an excuse for an event when we could book them again.”
Amanda & Daryl Cartwright, Wedding, Cornwall
“VHS are absolutely awesome!! They played at our wedding reception all the way down in Cape Cornwall back in August and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Choosing a band for your wedding is a very difficult task but if you’re undecided on whether or not to have these guys play at your BIG DAY then don’t hesitate and book now before you miss your chance. The booking process was really easy and all communication prior to the wedding was great and allowed us to personalise the set list. They even learnt our First Dance Song ‘Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol’ especially and did a cracking job! Our evening buffet over ran slightly which meant we were late clearing the room so that they could set up but they were very accommodating and worked around us. They then played 2 full-on sets with only a 10 minute break in between (not the 45min break as planned). The set list covered all age ranges and there really was something for everyone. They also gave a shout out for our friend who was celebrating his 30th Birthday that day too and had his favourite song played. At one point Andy even stepped away from his mic so that some of the children could play their ‘Air guitars’ alongside him! Our guests always rave about how good VHS were and say that it was the best wedding reception they have ever been to!! So thank you guys, you were AWESOME and made our day EPIC!”
Katie Addicott, Wedding, Devon
“The band were amazing. Everyone has been mentioning them since the wedding. They got a very diverse group of people all dancing with each other – Hey Jude at the end was one of my favourite bits of the whole wedding. Thanks so much guys – it was just what we wanted!”
Peter Lock, Military Event, Hampshire
“The band were great. Everything as expected, would definitely recommend!”
Emma White, Private Party, Dorset
“VHS were an amazing band! They had a difficult crowd to work with, but everyone enjoyed the songs! Would highly recommend them to anybody looking for great tunes and a great time! Thank you guys!!”
Vanessa Thorne, Wedding, Gloucestershire
“So lucky to find such a talented band online – bit of a risk as hadn’t heard them play previous to the wedding. The band was enjoyed by all from our grandparents to the toddlers at the wedding!! Would highly recommend!!”
Sarah Simmons, Birthday Party, Bristol
“Absolutely fantastic band, really professional, great selection of music & all round friendly approachable lads. Would book them again without a second thought. Brilliant x”
Emily Harrison, Wedding, Bristol
“The whole process from start to finish was really easy and professional. The band themselves were fantastic – really friendly, professional, really got involved in our festival feel and everyone loved them. People were shouting for more at the end of the night. We were really pleased with VHS and have recommended them to friends already. Great job all round! Thank you for making our wedding night so brilliant! Emily and Martin”
Richard Hatton and Lucy Smith, Wedding, Wiltshire
“Guys, you were great! You made the night, you’re a fantastic talent and we loved the set list. Thank you so much.”
Natalie Golding, Wedding, Wiltshire
“WOW what an amazing band! The atmosphere the guys set for our wedding was just incredible. I have never been to a wedding where the band members actually come out from behind the mics and join the party by dancing along with us! Just brilliant. My husband and I were told many a time on the night how amazing Andy’s voice was. The communication from the band prior to the wedding was great…… I just have nothing bad to say. Thank you so much guys. A band I would definitely recommend to others.”
Rineeta Chuckerbutty & Ryan Coughlan, Wedding, Buckinghamshire
“VHS were simply AMAZING! The booking process was really easy, the band were excellent at communicating prior to the wedding and they completely exceeded expectations. Everyone commented on how excellent the music was and everyone was on the dance floor through all the ages and from different walks of life (this was a mean feat considering that my husband and I are (combined) from an Irish, Scottish and Indian background and all our friends needed to be kept happy as well). The band completely made our night, and if it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have half the wonderful memories we do. Please book them, you won’t regret it! Thanks VHS x x x”
Joanna Sparrow, Wedding, Gloucestershire
“VHS played at our wedding last month and were absolutely fantastic! Their correspondence beforehand was thorough and they were able to make recommendations based on their previous experiences – they put our minds at ease and we trusted them 100%. On the actual wedding evening they were so friendly when we spoke to them as they were setting up. And their actual sets were brilliant – they had everyone up on the dancefloor! We’ve had so many people comment about how good they were and how the music was one of the best things about the wedding. One more thing to mention is that we also asked them to make an announcement after their first set which they happily did just without any issues. I would highly recommend anyone to book VHS for their event – they don’t disappoint!”
Sam Gates, Wedding, Devon
“They were awesome. Really friendly and sounded great. They played a perfect set that got everyone up dancing.”
Justine Ridgway, Wedding, Devon
“What an amazing band that helped to make our day a total blast. Giving us great tunes great vibe to our evening. I wish I could book them every week. Thank you for making our wedding special.”
Ann Cooper – Aberlink Innovative Metrology LLP, Corporate Event, Gloucestershire
“VHS were great – arrived in good time (even though the traffic had been bad); polite and great attitude and really great music! Absolutely no complaints and we would certainly book them again.”
Geraint Cooper, Wedding, Powys
“VHS were a fantastic addition to our wedding, they even went the extra mile in learning our first dance and allowing one of the bridesmaids to sing with them. They were great in the run up to the event in arranging everything and while at the venue they were very professional. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to make a booking. Geraint and Caroline Cooper”
Mike Neville, Private Party, Wiltshire
“Great selection of tracks, fantastic delivery, really professional and certainly knew what the party needed.”
Lisa Francis, Wedding, West Glamorgan
“I just have to say what a brilliant band theVHS are, they were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, they have amazing voices and fabulous presence. They ensured all our guests tastes and era’s were catered for and we have only received positive comments back from both guests and the hotel where they played for our wedding 1st March. We would and already have recommended them to everyone, and hope to hear them play again in the near future. Thank you, Lisa and Dean”
Jess Hill Pemberton, Wedding, Gloucestershire
“A friendly, fun and professional band! Showed great flexibility with the timings, and worked well with the DJ to make a night get started properly. I would recommend the VHS highly to anyone thinking of booking them – I have only heard fantastic things from the other guests who praised the band’s choices of songs and the atmosphere they created. A job very well done indeed.”
Lydia Mackrill, Wedding, Shropshire
“We would like to thank the band very much for making our evening so entertaining! They were exactly what we were looking for and really made our evening. On top of that they were also very friendly to deal with. Would recommend them to anyone!”
Nadine Isaac – Quantock Weddings and Events, Private Party, Somerset
“VHS went down an absolute storm and had the entire ball up and dancing from the first set to the last. I can honestly say that they MADE the ball! I will definitely be booking them again in the near future, fantastic musicians with and eye for reading the crowd. Very happy!!”
Lorraine Griffin – Allan Webb Limited, Corporate Event, Gloucestershire
“From booking to the band on the evening, everything went perfectly. Thank you for a fantastic evening.”
David Jones, Wedding, Somerset
“Thanks for an playing an amazing gig at our wedding last night!! There are quite a few sore heads around today but everyone has said how fantastic you guys were! We had a great time but you were the icing on the cake and made our day. From the first song to the last, musical statues was inspired and even staying to dance with us and all our drunk mates after you finished playing!!! Class!!”
Martin Green, Wedding, Gloucestershire
“Excellent band, arrived on time and fulfilled our expectations musically, friendly bunch of lads.”
Kayleigh and Mark, Wedding, Powys
“Hi Andy! Thank you so so much for performing at our wedding last night, it was a bit of a risk to choose a band we’d never seen live but somehow I knew it would pay off! You were amazing! I loved every second and what a lovely bunch you are! Thank you for staying later than planned and for letting Hannah sing. I cannot fault you – superb!!”
Kayleigh James, Wedding, Powys
“I cannot fault this band, they played at our wedding last night, I had never seen them perform live and knew it could have been a risk booking them but always knew it would pay off! They are such a friendly and relaxed group, Andy got in touch a few weeks before the wedding to check the timings for the day etc. The music selection was superb and they sounded amazing! The main thing I wanted was to make sure people of all ages would enjoy and they certainly did! I highly recommend this band and hope we have another event in the future where we can book them!
Thank you so much guys. Kayleigh and Mark Dyer xx
