The band were very well received, with a full dance floor from start to finish, thank you!
Just want to say a massive thank you to the band.
It is the second time I have seen them,they have gone up another level.
The feedback from our guests was great which is down to yourselves, many questions about how we found you and were you are from.
Once again thank you and good luck.
Great addition to our wedding. Would highly recommend 11am somewhere, they were fantastic!
11am somewhere were absolutely brilliant. It was all set up hassle free and by far one of the easiest parts of the wedding to organise. The performance was brilliant. First dance song request was performed even better than we had hoped and they even took the time to keep my niece happy by playing little mix in the break lol. Overall a 10/10 performance and 10/10 to Hireaband for making the booking simple. Loved it!
Hope you’re really well, just wanted to message to say an absolutely massive thankyou for Saturday. Also I’m so sorry for being highly ignorant and not coming over to say thanks properly on the night, I don’t know where the time went, it was all such a whirlwind (plus it took me SO LONG to get anywhere in my ridiculously enormous dress!). You guys were absolutely amazing and everybody has said how much they enjoyed the night so thank you so much. Dancing with Kev to proud Mary on our wedding day is already one of my all time favourite memories. Kev’s has three people asking for your details, he says he’s sorry for the drunken ramblings as you were packing up!
The whole process through hireaband was very simple and easy. 11am Somewhere were absolutely amazing. They have a life long fan in our flower girl who didn't stop dancing for the whole night... and us of course. The band were so friendly, the set up process quick and seamless and most importantly the dance floor was packed. We really couldn't fault them and would love to be able to repeat the whole process again.
Lee, the band 11am Somewhere were superb. They played a stomping set, got everyone dancing and made the party great fun. So many of my guests made an effort to come and tell me how much they enjoyed the band. Highly recommended! Best wishes, Ashu
The band were excellent. The dance floor was continually full, they worked with us to create a great set list and I have never been to a wedding before and seen so many people (young and old) dancing to the music with a beaming smile on their face. People were still talking about them the morning after... I would highly recommend them to anybody.
Absolutely brilliant, all our wishes were accommodated and the band was amazing. It really made our wedding day special. A good mix of music genres were played and the band out their own unique stamp on many songs. Fabulous. I wish I could do it again so I could hear the band play again!
I had the task of booking a band for everyone's taste and wanted something a little different. 11am Somewhere certainly made it an occasion to remember. I loved their original take on songs.
We are very thankful to 11am Somewhere and the agency for helping us with our last minute booking. The band kept up great communication and more importantly had everyone up dancing on the night.
Kate and the boys of 11am - thank you! If you want a band who are easy to work with, fit seamlessly into your evening and generate a full dance floor all night then look no further than 11am! Kate was so personable and easy to communicate with and their sound fitted our vintage/bohemian style wedding perfectly!
Our wedding was fantastic and the band played a big part in that. The dance floor was never empty and so many of our guests said how great they were - they appealed to everyone. People said they were the best live function band they'd ever heard and I have to agree with them. It was great to see my dad on the dance floor, as he never ever dances, but he said the band were too good not to. They are effortlessly cool - we really didn't want a typical cheesy wedding band and we didn't need to worry about this with 11am Somewhere. Kate is amazing on the violin and adds such a unique element to the band. Alicia is a brilliant lead singer with an absolutely stunning voice and a look to match. The guys on guitar, bass and drums are all incredibly talented and experienced musicians, and together they sounded incredible. I know Alicia is a new addition to the band, but we both thought they were so in sync with each other and professional that it was as though they'd been playing together for years. In the run up to the wedding Kate was great and was in touch regularly. She really listened to what kind of set-list we wanted, and they learned our first dance especially for us. The version they did was amazing and we have such happy memories of that moment. We can't thank them enough for giving us the best party we could've imagined on our wedding day. We would thoroughly recommend them to everyone and would book them again in a heartbeat. We will be looking out for any future public gigs as we really want to see them again! If you need us to provide anything else that will encourage people to book them then please let me know as we will tell anyone who will listen how great they are. Best Wishes, Elizabeth & John
