Again thank you to Lee for the very efficient and friendly service you provided in arranging for Something Like This to play at our wedding. We have sent emails to the band saying thank you for playing fantastic sets.

Something Like This

"Something Like This were the perfect choice for our very sunny wedding day on May 26th - in fact, the music matched the weather. The tempo and tunes were pitched perfectly at the right times throughout the reception, and the fact that everyone was up dancing for the last session before the disco had even started (about 7.30pm!) was testament to the great vibe you had created. Your professionalism and flexibility were fantastic, and I could not believe it when you belted out the Fleetwood Mac track which you had learnt especially for the day - it was such a high point and meant so much to us. You are now in our family's address book for all future events!" Thanks so much again,Amy & Jonathan - (London)

"The guys from Something like This, Greg and Paul, helped to add to the ambiance of the dinner hosted by Michael Barr and provided great entertainment. Live music often makes such a big difference to the overall atmosphere of an event and I would happily recommend you for an event and wish you every success" Nick Roseveare, CEO - M.A.G

"Dear Greg and Paul RE: Nikki and Luke Wedding Reception 31/03/12 Officers' Mess, Royal Marines, Poole I am writing to say a very big thank you to you both for everything you did to make Nikki and Luke's party such a success. I know that all our guests, young and old really enjoyed your music that evening. I hope that you had a good journey back home. With best wishes". Heather (Poole)

"Hi Greg and Paul, Thank you for helping us to make this a very successful event. Sometimes it is hard to pin down what makes a very successful event. Certainly the live music makes the occasion 'that bit different'. Your sound system is very good and Greg's hosting and MC skills are excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending you for an event and I wish you every success in the future". Michael Barr of Michael Barr & Co Ltd

"It can be daunting when booking musicians for a party and not being sure of how things will turn out. DO NOT be daunted - look no further! The professionalism of Greg and Paul absolutely MADE our New Year's Eve party at the Badger Bar in Rydal this year. From the start they approached the planning for the evening with enthusiasm and a can-do, helpful attitude. The slightly challenging nature of my pub (two rooms, not one big open space) presented them with a opportunity to play their sets in two different places ensuring everyone felt involved, even encouraging the two rooms to be competitive with the volume of their applause! Their playing and singing is great, but you get so much more than that when booking them - they were involved with the entire evening, helping run the raffle, the quiz, and of course timing the countdown to 2012 to perfection. Above and beyond all the way. Book them if you can!" Rik Still, Glen Rothay Hotel and Badger Bar

"Dear Greg & Paul, Just wanted to thank you for playing at my 60th birthday bash on Saturday night. It really added something to the evening, and the chocie of music was just right. We.ve had so many appreciative comments that i am sure you will get some more business from it. Glad to hear you are getting really busy, and will look forward to hearing you again. All the best, Jenny (Eden valley)

'I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making my 40th such great fun. Everyone thought you guys were amazing and I especially loved your version of 'America' by Razorlight! I hope the voice has recovered Greg and you have had a rest from your busy schedule - I can see why you are so busy, I might have to have you back for a 41st! Take care both of you and have a great Christmas'. Sarah (Keswick)

'Something Like This...' were definitely one of the reasons that the inaugural Greystoke Beer Festival was such a success. Based on the quality of music performed by Greg and Paul we are sure to sell out next year if they are on the bill again. They had people up dancing and really created a brilliant atmosphere with their enthusiasm and energy; they made the whole evening great fun and very memorable. A great accompaniment to real ale tasting! I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a talented band to play at their event. Morna Sims - (Greystoke)

"With torrential rain, strong winds and limited visibility threatening to dampen the spirits on our Ullswater steamer, it was amazing to have Greg and Paul on board to save the day. Their skill, enthusiasm and ability to match the music to the mood of the guests worked absolute wonders. From a lovely atmospheric beginning to a sing-a-long crescendo, they created an incredible atmosphere throughout the evening. From my 2 year old nephew to my wife's 92 year old grandfather and everyone in between, the dance floor was full of energy and a real sense of fun. It was important to us to have a great band and 'Something like this' did not disappoint in the slightest. As two talented musicians and two captivating characters Greg and Paul brought a strong credibility and a very professional approach for which we are very grateful" Joeseph & Zoe Gummett (London)

"As a surprise for my best friend, I arranged for Something Like This to sing after the meal on her Hen night. The initial shock caused by the fear that he was a stripper was replaced by pure delight at his rendition of her favourite songs had us all singing along. His final performance of 'Brown eyed girl' to my brown eyed friend was very special. It was the highlight of the night and none of the girls will ever forget it (well maybe a few of them who were on the cherry vodka) Thanks very much guys".Sally Roythorne (Brampton, Newcastle, and New York)

"We recently had a charity fundraising event for our local village hall and thought we would try and make the occasion a little bit special. We called on the services of 'Something Like This' but never imagined that we would have just about everyone in the room up on their feet dancing!. The night was a huge success thanks to Greg & Paul" Dave Winter - (Bassenthwaite Village)
