WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Alice
Wedding, Binscombe Farmhouse, Godalming
I can honestly say the band were absolutely outstanding. Utterly fantastic and I really can’t sing their praises enough. I feel awful in the fact I barely even said hello to them on the night- the whole evening went by in such a blur and I felt I was being pulled in every direction under the sun, but I wish I’d taken a moment to tell them that myself. Please please do forward this on to them as I want them to know how thankful we are. I didn’t see them arrive but they kindly set up so swiftly and accommodated my fairly last minute request to play a song as we walked in with no questions asked. Our first dance was so much fun and they were fantastic at it- so cool and relaxed and professional, which made me in turn feel so relaxed dancing to it! Every song they performed thereafter was such a hit- countless people have said how phenomenal they were and it was a consistently full dance floor all night which is no mean feat! Every band member played their part to perfection. So, please do pass on my thanks- they really were outstanding and I will recommend them in a heartbeat to everyone and anyone who asks. I had the most wonderful wedding imaginable and they really played a huge part in helping it to be such a success. And last but not least, an equally huge thank you to you both. The entire process was made so smooth and reassuring by your lovely, helpful and informative emails. As I would the band, I would equally recommend Tailored Entertainment to all who ask and that is all thanks to you both. I couldn’t be more grateful for all your help these past few months and found the booking process so staightforward and easy to use - a blessing when juggling so many elements of a wedding. Really, thank you. So, thank you very very much again - it was all fantastic and just wish we could do it all over again!

Roy
Corporate, Oakwood House, Maidstone
Wow, what a band, from the first chord that was struck to the very last the dance floor was packed out. We booked the band for our Companies 25th anniversary party and will definitely use them again. all members were friendly and chatty when approached and helped us create the atmosphere we desired for the evening. Highly recommend this band.
Anna
Wedding, Clearwell Castle, Coleford
I would like to say on behalf of myself and my husband that we are extremely grateful to the band. They were absolutely fantastic in every sense. Their performance was amazing and the talent outstanding. Musically so brilliant. Our guests loved their performance and energy as a band. They made our wedding evening perfect. Thank you so so much. We are sorry that we didn’t get to speak to the band. We weren’t introduced to them at the beginning either which was a shame but this wasn’t a reflection of the band it was mostly because the day was so full. I will most definitely recommend the band and I would not hesitate to book them again. Thank you. Please pass on our appreciation to the band. Money very well spent.
