Thank you all at Hireaband for providing 1st class service with a 1st class band. Everyone at the wedding was commenting on the band and could not believe the price they were.  Dance floor was full all night and the variety of songs they played was amazing.  A few of our friends asked what company we used so you were highly recommended. We wish you all the best in the business for providing TOP CLASS entertainment! Thank you!

Hireaband were brilliant at keeping in contact and updating us with information about Replay as we got closer to the wedding. The band themselves were absolutely amazing!!! Everyone has commented on how great the band were and even though I sound like most other testimonials, I genuinely love this band and will be using them again for other functions whilst recommending them to everyone! Everything was perfect! The band were dressed so smartly and played great tune after great tune! Thank you so much!

Thank you very much, Irving. We would highly recommend Hireaband London to our friends and family. Irving was brilliant assisting us in our quest to find our perfect band for our wedding band. We booked The Watling Street Band, and so many of our guests said they are the best band they've heard at a wedding. We were provided with fantastic service throughout our search, booking, and communication leading up to our wedding. Thank you Irving, you kept searching and if it wasn't for you our music would have been very different!

Dear Hireaband, thank you so much for your help in finding Star Club to play on the night of our wedding. They were absolutely fantastic and played such a variety of tunes, there was something for everyone.  I can't believe all that sound came from just two guys.

Hireaband- very helpful and approachable. Great communication and fantastic recommendation of the band, they were exactly what we were looking for and were outstanding on the night, we wouldn't have found them without Hireaband’s short list and advice. A pleasure to deal with and will certainly be recommending Hireaband to others.

So glad I went through Hireaband-after two bands cancelling on us and 12 weeks till our wedding I wanted someone reliable and that's what they are they won't let you down! Lisa cotton was so friendly and helpful every time I phoned.she gave me a list of bands that would be appropriate for what we wanted and so glad I listened to her advice as Grand Central was better than the previous bands we originally had! Thank you again, guys, for an amazing service.

Hireaband is fantastic to deal with, so friendly but professional and efficient. The Dawn Patrol was outstanding on the night, using their experience and initiative to keep the dancefloor absolutely packed the whole night, even during their break in the middle.  All our guests have agreed with us saying they are the best wedding band they have ever seen.

Booking for our special wedding day, involving a number of talented musicians and music enthusiasts as guests- expectations were very high! The band fully delivered to these expectations in every way. Helping massively with our very specific and perhaps unusual requests! Hireaband were professional, thorough and a pleasure to work with. I cannot think of a single thing they need to change to their service!!! Particularly impressed with Irving Walker at Hireaband London. Will certainly recommend to others in the future.

Hireaband made the whole band booking process so straightforward. Thank you so much Irving for your help and patience.

 

We absolutely loved Arcadia 5, we just sent them an email, pasted below FYI.

 

Hi everyone in Arcadia 5,

 

Thank you so, so much for making our wedding so incredible on Saturday. Absolutely everyone has told us how phenomenal you were, we’re so happy we chose you guys and even happier that you agreed to come all the way down to Bucks for us. Some people have commented they’ve never danced so much at a wedding, and that’s all down to you. Thank you.

 

Thanks also for your patience with the endless emails over set lists and surprises etc, we hope you didn’t mind too much.

 

We’ve had a sneak peek at our wedding photos, nothing of you guys just yet but as soon as we have the rest, we’ll share them with you in case you’d like to nab any.

 

Thanks a million and we hope we get to dance to your tunes again!

Kickback were brilliant, so friendly and professional when they arrived, set up with no problems at all and didn't complain when the timings went slightly off. They put on such a fantastic perfomance, playing for longer than I was expecting them to, and we have had so many compliments from our guests. Would highly recommend.

 

 

Hireaband were great. Irving was, as always, so helpful with every detail in the booking and confirmation.

Hireaband have made something that could have been quite challenging, finding a band for our wedding, very easy. From looking at all the bands online and watching their videos, they supporting us through the ordering process and correspondence up to the day. It certainly took away some of the usual stress of the wedding. Thank you.

On top of completing the feedback forms we wanted to write and thank you so much for the part your services played on the day of our wedding. We married on the 5th July at the George Hotel in Edinburgh and 2 weeks later people are still telling us how great the music was at our wedding. Superbly performed music can really make all the difference and we got that result. Andy Lucas played beautifully, was the most professional and polite person to deal with and we had several people ask us if they could take him home! He oozed class during the ceremony and drinks reception and had people mesmerised. Classic Noir just blew us all away! Gav was super-efficient with all the pre wedding communications and gave us both great confidence that they’d play a blinding set with all the right classics and modern floor fillers too. They built the intensity up to a huge finale and for all that we’ve been getting praise for finding and hiring them it’s really those lads who deserve all the credit for being just awesome. We love a party and at some point (maybe my impending 40th!) we’ll be back to see you at Hireaband.

Our wedding day was an amazing day but The Numbers exceeded in every way possible to help put the icing on the cake.  We cannot thank you enough for everything the band & the Hireaband team did for us. Would definitely recommend this company & band for a perfect touch to your wedding. They are easy to talk to. Fantastic at what they do. Hassle free & value for money. Thanks to all the guys who helped our day more than perfect.

Splendid Gentleman played at our wedding reception and were great from start to finish!!! Played a mixture of music with some requests also!! Could not have been happier!! Everyone commented on how good they were and the dance floor was never empty!! Only took half an hour for a break which was also a boost!! Asking us at half time - if everything was okay and if there was anything else we wanted them to play.  Hireaband were also great - keeping us updated with what was happening and when payments were due, which was also helpful whilst planning a wedding!!  Dee Craig and Scott were a nice bunch of guys and very talented musicians, who could not have been more accommodating. Thank you so much!! Wish we could do it all over again!!

Rachel Hair’s performance was outstanding and we have had many of our guests comment on how good she was.  She arrived on time, play our choice of songs beautifully and created a nice atmosphere during our drinks reception.  Thank you Rachel.  Hireaband have been diligent throughout this process.  They have kept in touch by email and always responded promptly.  I will be recommending this website to my friends in the future.

Hireaband were really helpful.  They were able to offer helpful and flexible solutions to our musical choices. The Rhythm Kings were fantastic and went down really well at our gathering.  Everyone across all ages loved them. A really good bunch of guys.

Myself and my fiancé were arranging wedding day entertainment at a rather restricted venue (Sound restrictions due to the fact that it's listed and near a residential area) so were so pleased when Lee from Hireaband took over for us. We weren't really sure what the restrictions meant in terms of our options so we were starting to give up on the idea until Lee sorted us out. Within a day of getting in touch with Lee he had sent us several relevant options, we were really quite fussy because we have slightly different tastes in music and ideas for the performance we wanted on the night but having gone through various options Lee booked Joel Harding for us. Throughout the process Lee dealt with all of our queries, collated further information, made the booking and payment straight forward and liaised with everyone concerned. He really couldn’t do enough for us and made sure we booked the perfect act for our special day.

Gaye at Hireaband was also excellent from the first moment I contacted her she made booking our band one of the easiest jobs and I would just like to thank both the band and Gaye very much they were amazing.

The whole process of finding/choosing and eventually hiring the band was seamless with excellent support over the phone when needed.  Major Tom themselves were fantastic, excellent communication in the run up to the wedding and performed a set that was beyond our expectations in terms of quality of performance! Couldn't be happier!

We're so glad we chose this band, we booked them just after viewing their videos on the Hireaband website and after booking went to see them play at the Edinburgh wedding show and loved them. Hireaband have been amazing to work with too as a supplier. They kept us fully informed about our booking, confirmed 1st dance requests and reconfirmed the bands booking the week of the wedding for peace of mind. Hireaband provided us with free tickets to go and see Replay at the wedding show which we thought was a lovely touch. We couldn't recommend both Replay or Hireaband more. Thank you for making our wedding plans go so smoothly and giving us a special night!!!

I am writing to thank you for all your help in arranging entertainment for my daughter's recent wedding. Julie and Hoani  had the most magical day and the choice of band played a huge part in this. I am delighted that we approached Hireaband when getting the ball rolling a year ago. From my first conversation with you,I knew that ,with your help, Julie and Hoani would find the perfect band for their wedding. Your knowledge of bands on your books helped them quickly to arrive at a decision. You were professional, yet very friendly and it was so reassuring to know that you were on the other end of the line to answer any questions and guide us through the process in the lead up to the big day. Booking the band was an enjoyable experience and we really appreciate all you did for us.

From start to finish, dealing with Hireaband was second to none. From the first email regarding bands to getting a reply back was amazing. I then ended up booking my second band with them also as it was so easy and everything was sent to me in good time and easy to sign and send back electronically. I was kept up to date with how much was left to pay and also I was sent details of each band so I could contact them with any queries a few months before.

We would like to say we were delighted with the highly efficient service we received from Nicola and Gaye at Hireaband, and would highly recommend their service.  We were also delighted with our Performer, Lisa Fraser, who provided a very wide range of polished entertainment at our Wedding Reception  She was perfect in every way, a real professional, extremely well presented, with a fantastic voice, and outstanding repertoire. Nothing was too much trouble for Lisa, she was a real pleasure to deal with, and we would not hesitate recommend her.

Thank you to Hireaband for offering such an excellent service. The hiring of our wedding band and quartet was by far one of the most pleasant and smoothest experiences during the whole wedding planning process which in essence is all thanks to Hireaband. Thanks so much for everything, we were really lucky to have found your agency.

The service from Hireaband was excellent from the outset.  Booking Classic Noir was so easy and each person I spoke to was very helpful and friendly to deal with.  I would not hesitate to use this service again should the opportunity arise in the future.
