The Centuries

Twice we have now booked them. Brilliant as always played a variety of music all of which were excellent and everyone was up and dancing. Great Evening. Thank you.

The Centuries

Without a doubt a must have for your wedding or Party! The Centuries never fail to amaze us at how brilliant their music is, having played at my mums 50th, sisters 21st and our Wedding in June they still surprise us each time with how fab they are ! And now all booked up for my sisters wedding . Really lovely down to earth guys who are so approachable with any request and we loved their version of our first dance by Paolo Nutini. Guaranteed to get the party started and the dance floor full thank you guys you finished off our day perfectly . Looking forward to Decembers dancing. X

The Centuries

I cannot recommend these guys highly enough. So professional and had everyone dancing all night!! We had so many people comment on how great the band were!!

The Centuries

This amazing band played at our wedding in May and I can honestly say booking this band was the best thing we did. It really made our evening reception stand out. The band learnt our first dance song which made it so special. The band are fun, accommodating, sooo helpful and flexible. Nothing was too much trouble.

The Centuries

Again The Centuries played an amazing set for us. Everyone was commenting on them and we will see them again next year no doubt. Very well organised and they know what they're doing....a happy addition to our suppliers book. Awesome!

The Centuries

Best Wedding Band Ever! We booked The Centuries for our wedding in February and they were brilliant! They had a really wide range of songs which meant all age groups enjoyed themselves and they even learnt two new songs for us which were both amazing! The fact that they also provide a DJ for in-between sets is such a great idea and meant that the dance floor was full all night. We have had so many positive comments about them since the day, with everyone saying how much fun the evening reception was and how much everyone danced. We were a little nervous booking a band that we hadn't seen live, but we absolutely should not have worried. They were so friendly, the songs were brilliant and I'm so pleased we booked them! x

The Centuries

Awesome. Could not have asked for anything more. Great guys and great music. The perfect band for an entertaining evening. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks a lot.

The Centuries

Dear James, you have asked for feedback on The Centuries and I have to say that they were... Absolutely Fantastic! Having never booked a band before, I felt confident in the professionalism showed by yourself and your own staff and I was pleased with the level of contact from James from the band up to the event and it was easy to discuss details with him. When they started the first of their three sets, it took less than 5 seconds for the dance floor to fill, and it was packed throughout the entire evening! Even the intervening DJ during the breaks kept people on their feet. Our group consisted of visitors from the UK, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany and they all had a tremendous time! The band have a very wide set list but we chose to leave them to decide what to play and they went down an absolute storm! Other people at our venue who were attending another event even asked to join us, they were so good. They were happy to play requests and were great entertainment! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone organising an event where they want good quality entertainment from a top-class, lively, energetic and skilful bunch of musicians! One of our foreign guests asked them if they would play abroad, so it may even be the start of an international careers for the guys! An inspired choice - thanks to your recommendation - following our initial discussion and they really were the icing on the cake of a very good weekend. Many thanks indeed! One constructive comment would be that the video clip of them on your website does not at all do them justice. They are much, much better that depicted in the video clip and I am sure that a better clip would be beneficial to them securing more work. They thoroughly deserve it!

The Centuries

To everyone thinking of asking these guys to play at your wedding/party/event... DON'T EVEN THINK TWICE!! These guys are AMAZING and will make your night!!!!! I cannot recommend this band enough as they played at our wedding on Saturday and we are still talking about it now!! James was so flexible and helpful with the planning and the change of times on the night and the guitarist playing on the dance floor with the guests was just out of this world! We had such a brilliant night and it was because of you guys!! Thanks so much :) :)

The Centuries

We have just got back from honeymoon and I thought I would drop you a quick email to say how fantastic you and your band were at our wedding. Everyone has said how much they loved you guys and how they loved the sing along (a very popular event it turns out)! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and that is thanks to you guys. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a band. Many thanks!

The Centuries

The Centuries were fantastic! They responded positively to our requests, their playlist was perfect and everyone had a great time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. THANK YOU GUYS!

The Centuries

We are finally back into the swing of things and back to reality (which is utterly depressing) and am getting round to thanking everyone for making our day absolutely amazing, including yourselves!! We had so many compliments about how good you were and I'm so happy the dance floor was packed from start to finish. Which of course I knew it would be as they follow lead from me! Ha-ha. Slight party animal. The extra songs you learned we amazing and went down fantastically well!! You should definitely add them to your repertoire. They were my favourite of the whole night. And it was great to see you guys enjoying yourselves too as there's nothing worse than seeing bands disinterested in their sets! In all a massive success!! Will definitely recommend you to family and friends though you sold yourselves brilliantly on the night so no need!! I'll be sure to email any photos that you feature in so you can use as you wish. I'm sure there'll be plenty of the packed dance floor!! Please pass our thanks onto the rest of the band and of course the DJs who stayed until the very end delivering the quality tunes!! Thank you so much again.

The Centuries

Thank you guys for Friday night! You were AMAZING!!! everyone loved you. I've already given your details to a few friends who are getting married in the next 12 months. Thank you for making it a fab night. Hope to see you perform again soon! xxx

The Centuries

Great band, great set of lads, thanks for a great nights entertainment.

The Centuries

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a superb performance! Excellent and easy communication. The band were a fantastic group of blokes, knew what they were doing, very organised and pain free! Really made a party into a party. Superb musicians, awesome set lists and the perfect band for any celebratory event. Couldn't recommend them enough, everyone had a superb night, everyone commented on how good the band were and they sure know what they are doing. If you’re looking for a band to make a perfect night, then look no further. Thanks again and we'd book you again at the drop of a hat for any future events........ Brilliant, thank you. No doubt we'll see you again with the amount of friends that took your card...... Best party, we've ever thrown and mainly down to you guys.

The Centuries

We had an absolutely brilliant time and were so pleased we went for live music – we thought you were great and couldn’t believe it when it was the last song! We have had so many of our guests’ comment on how good you all were and how much they enjoyed the music and the atmosphere you created so a very big thank you! Fantastic music, an amazing atmosphere and prompt, friendly service – you made our 25th Wedding Anniversary party something really special and we can’t thank you enough. Only wish we had an excuse to do it all over again!
