“In summary from start to finish the band was exceptional. Tom as the lead point of contact for the band was superb and we couldn’t have asked for more help in terms of answering questions and supporting our every need. On the day they arrived before time, and integrated brilliantly into the vibe we were trying to create for the wedding. In terms of sound, songs played and getting everyone on the dance floor we couldn’t have asked for better.
Matt & Vicky (Wedding)

“Thank you for what was a brilliant end to the perfect day at Caswell for Becky and me. You guys were perfect from the first dance until the last and the fact that you indulged our rendition of Mr Brightside made it extra special for us. There were people on the dance floor the entire time and the Fresh Prince mash-up went down a storm! You guys were great. The band were absolutely amazing and such positive feedback from all our guests.”

Georgina (Wedding)

“For those of you who don’t like long reviews; these guys are fantastic, talented and really made our wedding. Stop your search and book them. For a slightly longer review read on, from the moment of booking the band stayed in contact and always made communication when they stated they would, this included running through running order/arrival time, sorting out the playlist and if we had any special requests for the day. Tom arrived before the rest of the band with all his equipment at the time we had agreed, he then proceeded to transport their equipment to the venue and start setting up. First of all, Tom is an extremely friendly and likeable person. He offered to help out with anything as we were running behind he performed a few errands for us and generally helped us out for which we are very grateful. On to the music, as a band they are a very talented bunch, we left the set list up to them and my goodness did they deliver a fantastic blend of current and past music which had all age groups dancing, singing or at the very least tapping their foot along! I’m no Simon Cowell but they sounded fantastic with an excellent range throughout varying songs and genres. This coupled with the fact they were able to interact and react to the various unplanned situations during their set (first dance etc) made them an excellent choice for the wedding. An added twist, was that our wedding was a surprise wedding, with our guests turning up and expecting an engagement party, the band were extremely discreet and the surprise went down a storm. We spent hours and hours searching for a band for our wedding by the end of it all their samples seem to sound the same, save yourself the hassle and book The Messengers. A fantastic night had by all. THANK YOU GUYS!”
Laura (Wedding)

“Great bunch of lads and our guests loved the fact that they moved around the venue and mingled, playing music to suit the guests they were playing to at that time. We even got them to play our first dance live which we are so so glad we did as they nailed it. Thanks to The Messengers for helping to make our wedding even more memorable.”
Ben Grice (Wedding)

“Thank you all so so much for yesterday, absolutely amazing day and brilliant sets. All the guests were amazed at your music. Fantastic!”
Sophie & Max (Wedding)

“They were brilliant! Great fun, super music and got the guests all fired up for an awesome party! Thank you!”
Emily (Wedding)

“They were absolutely brilliant at our wedding last Saturday. They played the first dance song of our choice perfectly, and a good mix of old and new songs to get the guests dancing. The band were quick to respond to any questions before the day, and nothing was too much trouble to make sure the day was perfect. Thank you so much for making our day special!”
Rachel (Wedding)

“The Messengers were absolutely fantastic, they had everyone at our wedding up and dancing and they played our first dance – which was a request song – beautifully. We’ve had so many lovely comments about them. The band were really relaxed and easy to work with which was a blessing in the run up to, and on the day of, our wedding. Thanks for helping to make our day so special!”
Chris & Diana (Wedding)

“The Messengers surpassed all our expectations, they were brilliant. They played a great mix of upbeat songs and had everyone dancing. They are a great group of guys and they looked like they were enjoying themselves as much as we were. Their set-up was great and their vocals were fantastic. We could not have asked for a better way to end the evening.”
Chris (Wedding)

“A big thank you from Mike and I for helping our party go so well last Friday – we had a lot of compliments about your music and singing. We thoroughly enjoyed it and your contribution gave a lovely atmosphere. As I said on the night, I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone.”
Emma (Private Party)

“Thank you for last weekend! We had an absolutely amazing time and everyone was just full of overwhelming praise for you guys. Thank you SO much for going with my crazy idea & playing round the campfire. It was lovely.”
Zoe, (Birthday Celebration)

“We were incredibly pleased that we chose The Messengers to provide the live music at our wedding. They were always professional and both we and our guests enjoyed the entertainment. Their song repertoire was varied and well executed. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a great band.”
Teri & Tara (Wedding)

“I know I thanked you last night about 5 times but wanted to put it down in print! We had the most fantastic evening last night and you were fabulous . I have had so many people thanking us and singing your praises. Can’t thank you enough. I am sure we will be in touch again.”
Jill & Richard (50th Birthday Celebration)
