Reviews

Brightside

We had Brightside at our wedding on Saturday and honestly they were the best! Our dance floor was full all night long. We were apprehensive about booking them because we hadn’t had the chance to see them perform so could only go on all the great reviews we read and so glad we did as they were fantastic. Every question or request I had before the day was answered straight away by Olly and nothing was too much. Thanks again guys!

Brightside

If you’re thinking about booking this band - just do it! They are so talented, and really set the tone for a great night. All of our guests commented on how amazing the band were, and our first dance couldn’t have sounded any better. Thanks so much guys!

Brightside

Brightside performed at our wedding and really were top notch professionals from start to finish. They kept the dance floor busy all night and by the end of the evening it was absolutely packed! They sounded fab and we really appreciated how eclectic the set list was. Lots of our guests have already asked for their details because of how impressive the band was! Highly recommended!

Brightside

Really great performance from the guys and all our guests loved them. Even let one of our more vocally talented guests sing a few things with them which was a great touch! Thanks again for learning our song and doing a couple of great renditions for the requests that were put in. Would recommend highly!

Brightside

We booked Brightside for our wedding in April and they were absolutely fantastic. Everyone (old and young) were dancing from start to finish and I have received so many comments from our guests on how great they were. Couldn't recommend them enough!!

Brightside

We were lucky enough to have Brightside play at our wedding last month. In short, they were incredible. The dance floor was packed all night long and no one wanted them to stop playing. We can not recommend them highly enough. Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Thank you for giving us such a fun evening! We are trying to find another excuse for a party, just so we can book Brightside again!

Brightside

Played at my cousins wedding they were great fun and got the whole crowd dancing :)

Brightside

I booked Brightside for a joint 50th and 21st birthday party and must say they were absolutely fantastic. They were extremely professional and very helpful through out the night, nothing was too much trouble. One of the reasons I choose them was their varied play list, which was great for us, as they have a big selection of songs to cover everybody's taste young and old. Over the course of the evening lots of people commented how good the band were and asked where did I find them. You can't beat a really good band as entertainment for a special occasion and I would certainly recommend Brightside.

My wife and I had Brightside play at our wedding at Notley Abbey a few weeks ago and they were amazing!! They ensured their setting up and sound checks worked around our schedule and prior to the big day were really pro-active in getting in contact with us to make sure everything was in place. On the day we had them play 3x 40 minute sets with dj'ing in between - and what a difference the live band had on our night! For every second they played we had a packed dance floor which is exactly what we were hoping for. Great songs, super energy, an amazing performance and we can't thank them enough for playing a few extras at the end of the night to the baying crowd who could have been there for hours more! Thanks again guys for making our wedding so memorable.

Brightside

Brightside played at our wedding at Lulworth Castle recently. They were excellent and kept the dance floor jam packed for the whole night. So many of our guests have commented on how good they were! Their set list was versatile and appealed to all of our guests. Olly was also very responsive in the run up to the big day. Thank you for making our evening absolutely amazing!!

Brightside

Brightside played at our wedding at the start of November this year.

From start to finish, they were amazing!! So many guests commented on how great they were, some telling us they were the best band they'd seen at a wedding!!

I managed to arrange a surprise song for my husband, and they even let him get up and sing it with them (which he, and everyone else loved!!)

All in all, these guys were amazing!! Would definitely recommend!

Brightside

I booked Brightside for a product launch and was extremely happy with the decision. Everything leading up to the event was seamless and the guys were happy to answers any questions I had and were open to all suggestions in regards to the set list. They brought a great energy to the space and sounded great on the day! Not only are they are great band but a lovely bunch of guys too! Couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Brightside

Brightside are absolutely brilliant, they played our wedding in London and made it a party to remember. The band are great musicians and played a fantastic set. They have a broad repertoire and put together a great set that people of all ages enjoyed. After and during the wedding our guests kept telling us how good they thought the band were. The band were very professional and helpful with organisation both before and during the event. I could not recommended them more highly.

Brightside

We booked Brightside after watching their online videos for our wedding in July 2018....the videos were amazing. These guys are very talented and create a rocking atmosphere. Our wedding venue had a sound limiter which these guys can play though as they have all the kit. You would never of known as the sound was amazing. As the bride in heels I danced all evening. My friends have been asking me..who’s the band? Love them!
Thank you boys for an awesome wedding party xxxx

Brightside

We booked Brightside from a personal friend's recommendation, following his own wedding a year or so before ours; and they joined us for an evening session in April 2018. The managing agent that represents the band was very straightforward and easy to use for questions and answers before booking, which made that part all very easy (we didn't bother looking elsewhere or comparing prices, primarily due to the recommendation but also because in fact, they seemed very good value). We had planned a couple of hour long sets and wanted to take advantage of the DJ and MC service that comes complimentary to the main act. As promised, the band got in touch with us a month or so prior to the wedding, to discuss what we wanted and any special requirements. We specifically wanted two first dance songs, one just for us (I had taken dance lessons after all...) and one for the guests to come and join us. We were actually delighted to hear that within a few days the band had already downloaded those songs ready for playing via the DJ service, it was something that we were expecting to have to send them ourselves and in fact, one less thing for us to worry about to be honest.

One thing I would say to anyone that has never been the bride or groom at a wedding is that you don't realise how busy you are. We relied massively on everyone doing their jobs and when it came to the band, I was only part aware that they had joined the venue when they seemed to assemble from nowhere on our stage, having set up and completed their sound check. I have to say this is credit to them and the venue staff and again, really took a lot of the pressure off us in terms of having to sort things out or deal with questions and problems etc. We don't know if there were any hiccups on the night, but either way we didn't hear about them which is a good thing. We introduced ourselves, offered them a drink, covered over the basics of what we wanted for the first two dances, their sets and the DJ service and that was basically it. Four absolutely sound blokes who we had a laugh with and who put us at ease straight away. We asked them to have an absolute blast with the evening and that in turn kept our dance floor packed with something for everyone throughout the evening. Every guest that we have spoken to have mentioned the band and have said how fantastic they were. We were really pleased with their performance and have no doubt that we made the right choice for our wedding. I would 100% recommend Brightside to anyone looking for a quality band who are versatile and talented enough to put their own twists on well known current and also classic songs. Thank you guys, we hope to see you again when we can both sit back (and maybe dance) and enjoy your performance a bit more! All the best for the future, love Terry and Deb xx

We have just had the absolute pleasure of Brightside playing at our Wedding in Suffolk. I honestly cannot explain how amazing they were, fantastic communication from the start (invaluable when trying to organise a wedding!!) and on the day their performance was faultless. They had everyone dancing (even my 76 year old grandma who danced the whole evening in her heels!) and if I ever organise another event they would be my first and only choice. After the wedding all of our guests commented on how exceptional they were and how they made the evening. We cannot recommend highly enough and urge you to book them immediately!
