Empire were amazing!!! everyone at the wedding reception said how brilliant they were. Very talented and would 100% recommend!!!
Amazing performance, played so many great tracks which got people on the dance floor. We have had so many of our guests comment on how good they are and ask after the band / how we found Empire. Great crowd engagement and lovely people to chat to. Thank you Empire!
Empire were absolutely fantastic and we cannot recommend them highly enough. Joe was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning, responding to emails in a timely, friendly and helpful fashion. He was very receptive to our requests in terms of setlist and was more than happy to play our first song request (which was a little leftfield!)- the band played it brilliantly and it was such a special moment for us. The band were highly accomplished musicians and we particularly loved the interaction with the audience (the singer was often to be found in the middle of the dance floor!) So many of our guests commented on how great the band were and asked how we found them. The music was always an incredibly important part of our day and Empire absolutely smashed it- thanks so much guys!
We could not sing the praises of HireABand and Empire highly enough. In every respect, they have been thoroughly brilliant. Hire A Band were flexible and patient given the need for us to rebook an alternative band due to COVID postponements of our wedding, and Libbi was in regular contact and provided useful and valuable advice. Empire were simply outstanding. Joe was in touch in good time to discuss their performance, and were in touch with our reception venue, and arrived early to setup. Their performance was absolutely spectacular. They had everyone on the dancefloor from the very start, even those family and friends that usually watch from the sidelines. Everyone was boogie-ing and jumping about until the very end, all thanks to their brilliant, upbeat and talented performances. We even had a brave guitarist roaming the dancefloor! We've recieved so many compliments from our friends and family on how fantastic Empire were. We really wanted to celebrate our wedding with a fun, uplifting and happy vibe, which you captured perfectly for all generations. Thank you so, so, SO much!
Empire played our wedding in Bath on August 10th and we couldn't have been happier with them. First and foremost their performance was excellent and our dance floor was full from the first song until the last. As a five piece band they created a great overall sound and a professional and polished performance. Starting off with more modern numbers to get the energy levels in the room up, they then transitioned into more funk/soul/classic rock tracks which suited the audience. They were able to read the crowd and set the tone accordingly which I think is really important in order to ensure that the guests could fully engage with their set. Countless people approached me after the event to compliment them and express how much fun they had had at the evening reception thanks to the band being so good. Joe - the band leader - was very friendly and easy to deal with in the run up to the event and on the day the whole band were lovely and we had a lot of fun interacting with them. They arrived on time and completed their set-up and sound check etc. within the agreed time-frame. In summary they are extremely talented and professional musicians who are also fantastic to be around and to deal with. I would definitely recommend them to any couples looking for the perfect wedding band for their big day.
Empire were an exceptional band, making our wedding reception a night to remember :) Fantastic songs, a full dance floor all evening, would book again and highly recommend.
Great to do business with Hireaband and Empire. Everything was easy and the band superb for our event!
The band members were lovely and they sounded fantastic. I have had so many people who attended saying how great the band were. I would recommend this band to anyone.
I think I was dancing and singing most of the night. I'm so glad I chose "Empire" to play at my 60th birthday party. Thank you guys for a fab song list.
We specifically wanted a 5 or 6 piece band, when we initially searched and listened to quite a few we were both instantly attracted to the sound quality and energy that Empire have.We realise that the band are used to performing at much bigger venues but were just relieved that they were available to play for us that day as they were our 1st choice. We also appreciate the distance that they travelled from the Midlands up to Yorkshire and also the fact that members of the band had early commitments the next day.
We had lots of lovely comments from our guests asking about Empire and saying how good they were. My only regret is that they couldn't have played for us longer as I believe our guests probably had a bit more dance floor stamina left in them! In hindsight when planning our wedding we should have thought more about providing music after the band had left! From start to finish we found Empire extremely professional, setting up to packing up we hardly knew they were around, but when they were playing they performed superbly and certainly helped provide the party atmosphere.Our wedding was a whirlwind and flew by as we tried to greet and chat to everyone there. We appreciate the fact that members of the band came to say cheerio at the end of the evening. We would certainly recommend Empire in the future!
Professional, organised and they sounded great. I couldn’t ask for more. Empire were very accommodating with the arrangements leading up to the party. On the night they were fantastic. The set list was perfect for the audience with a good mix of songs. There was not a single thing they could have improved. Highly recommend to all.
Hi Joe - just wanted to drop you and the band an email to say thank you so much. It was such good fun and we have had so many of our guests come up to us and say how brilliant you were and I couldn’t agree more.
The Empire band were brilliant at our end on season ball! Very flexible and worked around us. Hireaband were also brilliant as this was a last minute booking, Matt was very helpful and patient with us! Thank you from all at LRFC
Great band, enjoyed them just as much as last year.
Look forward to working with Empire and Hireaband in the future.
Empire were brilliant! We and our guests had the best time partying in the evening! Young, dynamic, friendly and very professional. All our guests loved the mix of modern and older hits and everyone was up dancing, including my 80 year old grandparents : ) They played our first dance wonderfully. I would wholly recommend this band.
Hireaband offered a great service from start to end. Matt Cherry was professional to work with and quick to respond to emails. He kept me informed along the way, and gave good advice with help in regards to choosing a band. Payments were easy and everything was completed efficiently. The band 'Empire' were brilliant and really got the party going!!! They also sung the first dance which was beautiful. They went with the flow as the time schedule had gone out the window by then but completed their set. The range of music they played was fabulous and covered a range of ages and no cheesy songs, just really good tracks. It sounded great and everyone commented on how good they were and the dance floor was never empty!! Thank you all!
I was fortunate enough to book the band Empire and I have to say that they were fantastic. Very accommodating and very professional. They had the dance floor packed all night. Great musicians and great entertainers. I would highly recommend booking this band. I would also highly recommend the services of Hireaband as they were very responsive to our requirements and found us the perfect band for our New Years Eve event. Thank you to you all.
Empire!! Well what can we say?! You were simply fantastic at our wedding reception Sunday evening! The mix of songs were fab and perfect for all generations at our wedding. So many of our guests complimented you saying how awesome you are and you totally made the evening buzz! Thanks so much to you all for everything!! Highly recommended to anyone looking for a band!!! Lots of Love,
Empire were one of the best additions we made to our wedding planning to help make our special day perfect! You really were the standout moment of the day for us and all of our guests! After all the emotion of the day, you really captured the mood perfectly and from your first song, had everybody on the dance floor and kept us all there until you finished late into the evening. We can't even begin to try and say how thankful we are but you really did make our day perfect. We've had so many kind words and thanks for being part of the best wedding people have ever been to, including comments from the staff at our venue. You are all extremely talented and professional and it was so personal it was like we had family playing for us! We wish you all, all the best for the future and cannot wait to book you again for other special occasions. Love from Chris and Emma. xxx
Saw Empire at a friend’s wedding, I was really impressed with not only their music but also their professionalism. They entertained us for the whole evening, with a real variety of floor fillers. Couldn't recommend them more for any event.
The Band were absolutely incredible - they were so friendly and absolutely amazing. They got everyone dancing and created a great atmosphere.
Empire were an absolutely brilliant addition to our wedding day. Thanks so much to the whole band for two fantastic sets!
Empire were excellent! Super flexible when setting up in the corn shed. Their varied set list got everyone on the dance floor! The mix of vocals really set them apart from others bands I've seen. The highlight was when they played my personal favourite Muse for us! A great band, worth every penny. Could not recommend them enough!
Empire were excellent, the dance floor was full all night. They were professional and sounded amazing. We had great feedback from our wedding guests who commented on the energy that Empire created. I would certainly recommend this band to all my friends and family.
What a great band! Empire played the right mix of music that appealed to the wide mix of guests we had. They were very engaging and were part of our party from beginning to end....and after! Thanks a million guys.
Empire are a great band, very much look forward to working with them again!
We were extremely happy with Empire. They looked and sounded great, and really seemed to be enjoying what they were doing. Very good band chemistry, on stage. All the feedback from our guests, was very positive and complimentary too.
Empire's performance was great - our first dance song of Stevie Wonder was brilliant and the rest of the set had all our friends dancing :) Thank you.
Having Empire at our joint birthday celebration was an absolute delight. They were professional at all times,attentive,friendly and flexible with time. As a band they had a good engagement with the audience and recognised the mood of the party and complemented suitably with the songs that they performed. During the evening a number of our guests enquired who the band were and we received nothing but praise for a great night of entertainment. We would definitely book them again for any future events.
Empire were fantastic! We had loads of comments from our guests about how good the band were. The service from Hireaband has been brilliant, making it really easy to organise having the group at our wedding. Thank you.
Mike and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for playing at our wedding the other weekend. You guys were amazing. We have had so many comments from our guests about how great the band was. A cracking selection of tunes which kept the dance floor full all night. We just had the best day and your sets in the evening finished it off perfectly. Thank you! I have a attached a couple of pics that I think sum up the dance floor fun!
Empire were fantastic; the whole reception were on their feet enjoying the band for the entirety of their set. Their stage presence was exceptional and their set list was a true crowd pleaser. Numerous people have since enquired with us about the band so I really hope they get more bookings in the future.
Empire were a fantastic band. Professional throughout and the music was amazing. They really helped make our wedding night a special one and all the guests commented on how good they were.
Empire band were absolutely brilliant and really made our wedding night! They kept the dance floor full all evening with all ages having the best time! They were incredibly flexible and embraced all our quirky dance floor rules (insisting that everyone had a tie on their head). Thank you for a fabulous night!
Band were excellent and professional. Would 100% book again.
Empire were absolutely brilliant!! They arrived on time, were incredibly patient and polite while setting up and as soon as they started we realised we had booked a really class act!! They were so energising and the set list was perfectly diverse so that everyone of all ages enjoyed it. All of our guests commented on how great they were and if I ever have another big event, I will be booking them again!!
