Northern Collective

"We had 150 guests who barely stepped foot off the dancefloor while the band played. We had chanting for encores when they tried to leave, and since they're so up for it they came back and killed it for one more song. If I could do it again they'd be top of the list every time."

Northern Collective are a professional, energetic and highly experienced 5-piece band. If you're looking for your band to perform flawless classic Soul, RnB and Motown hits at your next event, but with modern classics thrown in the set too, then look no further!

Northern Collective

We booked Northern Collective to play at our wedding; after seeing their promotional video online we were sure that they would be an excellent band to choose. The band were really helpful and organised, making sure that all the arrangements were sorted in good time and their communication was really helpful. The music was incredible, it was just what we expected, and their choice of songs was perfect for getting a party started and keeping it going. My wife and I would thoroughly recommend Northern Collective for any occasion and they were an excellent choice for our wedding.

Northern Collective

Northern Collective were brilliant, and they made our night by letting our friend perform 2 songs as well! We really recommend them; the girls voices are just amazing!!

Northern Collective

If anyone is looking for a band for an event, Mark and I can’t recommend Northern Collective enough. They did an amazing job at our wedding. The dance floor was packed all night! Thank you!

Northern Collective

My husband and I recently got married and had Northern Collective as the night entertainment. They were absolutely fab!!! Excellent band, sound amazing, strong vocals. Everybody loved the selection of music. Overall fantastic and we will definitely recommend.

Northern Collective

We hired Northern Collective for our wedding in June 2019 and we honestly could not be happier with the experience. We found the band to be extremely professional throughout the entire planning process and with a reassuring attention to detail, which meant we had full faith in them to deliver on the night – particularly after watching them perform live in Didsbury beforehand. When our big day finally arrived, they were absolutely fantastic and played two one-hour sets that had our guests on the dancefloor all evening, providing a real atmosphere to the night. The set-lists were varied enough to please all ages, and our guests genuinely commented afterwards about how they made the evening. If you are looking for a wedding band, Northern Collective are a perfect choice.

Northern Collective

We booked Northern Collective for our wedding and they were just incredible!
Very professional, amazing vocalist and they sounded fantastic!
We also asked if they could perform a song for our first dance which wasn’t on their usual setlist and they did it for us without hesitation and it was beautiful

Northern Collective

Really can't thank this band enough, they did a fantastic job at our wedding, all our guests had a fantastic time and everyone commented on how brill the band were. You got lots of people up having fun dancing so I would highly recommend this band without a doubt. If we need a band in the future I will definitely be booking them again, so if you're after a band for your occasion then get these guys booked. Thanks again, Eddie and all the band members!

Northern Collective

Fantastic performance from Northern Collective! Great setlist, which catered for most tastes throughout the evening, and everyone was up on the dancefloor. Could not recommend highly enough, really was the icing on our cake for our wedding day. They finished their set to chants of "1 more song!" from everyone on the dancefloor.

Northern Collective

Just a quick email to say how fantastic the Northern Collective were yesterday. They had everyone dancing from start to finish, which is exactly what we wanted! Please pass on my thanks to them.

Thank you to you and your team as well for all your help.

Northern Collective

Northern Collective played at our wedding. They were absolutely unreal. They rocked the barn, got everyone on the dance floor and smashed out two amazing sets. The feedback from all our guests was incredible. We've already recommended their services to two lots of friends who are getting married next year as we'd love to see them again. Their song selection on point (no cheese, just tunes), the girls belt out the vocals and they're all quality musicians individually as well as collectively! Can't praise them enough!

Northern Collective

I wanted to write you a quick note to say a huge huge thank you for being AMAZING.Northern Collective smashed it at our wedding in Penrith. We had 150 guests who barely stepped foot off the dancefloor while the band played. We had chanting for encores when they tried to leave, and since they're so up for it they came back and killed it for one more song. If I could do it again they'd be top of the list every time.

Booking you guys was absolutely the best decision we made, and you made our evening so much fun. We had loads of people say how great you were, and I think the chanting for an encore at the end shows how much love you guys generated from the crowd! Hope you all got home safe. Lots of love, and endless thank yous!

Northern Collective

Thank you so much for helping us create such a fantastic wedding day. The dance floor was packed from start to finish! The music was amazing- fun and upbeat and everyone raved about how good you guys were. Also, your communication was excellent all the way through the lead up and we were so grateful for your prompt and professional responses to our endless queries. You knew all the right questions to ask to make sure everything went without a hitch- Thank you just doesn't cover how appreciative we are!

Northern Collective

Thank you soooo much for making our day even more perfect. It's so hard finding something for everyone music wise at a wedding but you absolutely nailed it and had us all dancing all night! In fact I think I pretty much had to be removed from the dance floor when it was home time! You are all super talented and I can't thank you enough for making our evening so amazing. Much love x

Northern Collective

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Northern Collective for playing at our wedding. The band were fantastic to work with from the initial booking to the wedding itself. I couldn’t have asked for better! They were approachable and professional throughout. At our wedding they kept everyone dancing all night and I can’t thank them enough for making our big day so amazing.
Thanks very much,

Northern Collective

We booked Northern Collective to play at our Christmas Party and we weren't disappointed. They were really professional and easy to deal with in the lead up to the event, and on the night they were fantastic. Their song list was great (not the usual ‘function band’ songs) and they had the dance floor full. We’ll definitely book them again for our next event.

Northern Collective

The band were outstanding. I can't recommend them highly enough. Really got the party going at our wedding. Loved it. Thanks guys.

Northern Collective

Dean and I wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for doing such an amazing job at our wedding. The videos and sound clips online don't do you justice at all. Everything was perfect and so many of our guests have commented on how amazing you were. It absolutely made our wedding.

All the best for the future and thanks again.

Northern Collective

We were absolutely delighted with the performance that Northern Collective gave at our wedding. We knew they were a very special band as soon as we saw them, and they didn't disappoint. Every single member of the band is incredible at performing, and gives 100%. They made our first dance very memorable, and our guests had a brilliant time too, as the play list was perfect. Dean was great at serving as a point of contact for the band, and ensuring that everything is in place for the big day.

In summary, you can't do better than booking Northern Collective for your event or big day. Highly recommended!

Northern Collective

We cannot thank you enough for such a fantastic evening at Hannah & Dan's wedding on Saturday. You were truly amazing and the dance floor was literally bouncing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have all been commenting on how great you were. Again Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

Northern Collective

Oh my gosh! Absolutely incredible band! Could not have asked for a better band for our wedding. You guys really are amazing and so so talented! You had everyone up on their feet the whole time! Our first dance song you played was just amazing! We requested the fabulous Brand New Heavies tune and you did not fail!! You have made that even more special to us.

Thank you so so much for being a part of our very special day... you all absolutely nailed it!! Will definitely be seeing you again soon! Thank you so much!!

Northern Collective

Northern Collective performed at our wedding on Valentine's Day and were absolutely amazing! The dance floor was full all night and so many people commented on how brilliant they were. We can't recommend them enough - they were so accommodating and catered to our every need. Special thanks to Dean for all of his help ;-) Definitely see you soon!

Northern Collective

Thank you to and all of the band you were all outstanding 10/10. I would recommend this band for any function i.e. wedding or any function I had guys these for New Year. Thank you once again hope to you back at Denton Golf Club

Northern Collective

Massive thanks to Northern Collective for turning our wedding into such a party! From the minute we saw these guys playing months before we knew they were the only band for us... You really have to see them play live. Totally professional in the build-up, they even incorporated some of our song requests into their set list. So many of our guests commented upon their amazing performance on the night and asked where we managed to find them...the standing ovation and chants for "one more song" spoke for itself!! We strongly recommend checking out Northern Collective for your wedding or party!

Northern Collective

Northern Collective joined us recently at an annual dinner and dance in Nottingham – and had people out of their seats in seconds. A really fun, friendly and flexible band. We have decided to book them again for this year. Everyone’s talking about seeing them again already! Cannot recommend enough!

Northern Collective

Thank-you all very much for making the slightly longer trip to Ripon than you normally would for a gig. The two sets were just outstanding, a great mix and even a few Xmas classics. Debbie's powerful vocals had the 100+ guests blown away. The best band the mess has had. We will be using you again I am sure.
