The Coopers

I just wanted to reach out personally and say a massive thank you to the band for Sunday. They were awesome and created a really lovely atmosphere. Well definitely be recommending you guys to others!

The Coopers

The Coopers were amazing. Really friendly and professional. They accommodated all our requests and had everyone up on the dance floor within 5 seconds of starting! Very talented musicians with a great range of songs. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

The Coopers

Hi Richie just want to thank you for your amazing music and professionalism at our wedding. The day did not go quite to plan as the venue did not tell us about the noise limiter but hey ho, that was soon sorted by you Richie, you made sure you was equipped to deal with any little hiccup and provided the dancefloor with your great songs all night long. Thank you also for letting one or two of our guests get up on stage with you to have a sing along – they thoroughly enjoyed themselves

The Coopers

We were given Richie’s contact details by a friend who hired Richie for their wedding a year or so ago. What a little gem he turned out to be – absolutely amazing performer, so talented and such a lovely guy. Our guests are still talking about what an amazing night we had and how much they enjoyed themselves and it is all down to you Richie. Looking for an excuse to hire you again

The Coopers

Fun, lively, talented and full of energy – just what the party needed. Thanks Rich for a great night – my feet are still hurting from all the dancing

The Coopers

Richie, what can we say, from start to finish you had the party rocking with your awesome song choice, literally something for everyone. If you are looking to hire a great band, then look no further than The Coopers

The Coopers

Many thanks Rich for making our big day the best ever, everyone loved your performance and the fact you were so easy going and punctual took the pressure of an already stressful task in arranging a wedding. From start to finish you had everyone up enjoying themselves which is what we had hoped for. Not one negative remark to make about you, you were an absolutely star

The Coopers

Richie was fantastic, he got the crowd going as soon as he picked up his guitar and started singing we have had so many compliments from our friends and have no doubt we will be seeing Richie real soon as he was booked by one of our guests for a future wedding. Cant wait to party with you again

The Coopers

Will keep this short and sweet – The Coopers are professional, super talented, funny, reliable we could go on all night – book these guys if you want your party to be a great success

The Coopers

Richie and I spoke several times about the sort of music we wanted at our wedding and asked if he would learn our song for the first dance, which he did and was better than the original artist ! Nothing was too much trouble for him, such a lovely young man, he is so talented and funny and mixed with all the guests who absolutely loved him. Our only regret is that the night ended too soon – we had a ball. Book Richie you won’t be disappointed

The Coopers

Hiring a live entertainer is always a bit risky and having searched and listen to what seemed like a thousand acts, we chose Richie to provide the music at our 40th wedding anniversary bash. Best thing we ever did – absolutely made our night. We had the best time and our guests have done nothing but comment on the performance you gave Thank you Richie we wish you all the best for the future, and have no doubt that your future will be full of other people enjoying your amazing talents

The Coopers

A truly amazing night thanks to Richie who came highly recommended and now I know why! With a variety of songs to fit all age groups the dancefloor was full all night long, even my auntie in her 80’s was up there rocking with her zimmer frame – seriously she had the time of her life ! We absolutely recommend Richie to get your party going with a bang

The Coopers

Brilliant, awesome, amazing – cannot thank you enough Richie for a truly memorable evening for my wife’s 40th birthday party

The Coopers

Book this young man now if you want a successful party atmosphere I promise you wont be disappointed. Richie played at our wedding and made an amazing day even more amazing. Great vocals just so talented.. Everyone loved him – he was topic of conversation next morning over breakfast at the venue – even the staff were talking about him. Book early he will be snapped

The Coopers

It rained all day on our wedding day but the evening sun shone inside our marquee when Richie started singing…. What a fabulous entertainer, great voice, great variety of songs, great sense of humour, great guy. Thank you so much Richie you saved the day

The Coopers

Richie played at our daughters 18th birthday party, there was a real mix of age groups and we didn’t wonder if music would suit all age groups, happy to say everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the dancefloor was packed literally from the word go, something for everyone. Richie was extremely helpful In the run up to our event and was more than happy to tweak his sets and timings. A thoroughly lovey man who really enjoys what he does

The Coopers

If you are looking for a professional, talented singer/musician then look no further give Richie a call – I promise you will not be disappointed. He is a true professional and a thoroughly nice guy to boot !

The Coopers
