The entire experience booking a band through Hireaband was flawless. Their range of music options was extensive and their advice and communication excellent. Perhaps most important was the fact that the band we hired (The Gold Standard) were perfect for the occasion and thoroughly entertaining. The band were extremely professional and capable, and contributed significantly to the success of the evening.
We had the most amazing time last night - you made everything so, so special. Thank you for everything you did. We've had another gathering today and so many people told us how impressed they were with you and how fantastic you made the evening. It was incredible and exactly the atmosphere we had hoped for!! We couldn't have asked for more. A few people have asked for your details so hope to see you at another event soon!! Thank you and very best wishes to you all. Love, Meghan (Bonner!!!) x
Hi Debbie, I should have emailed sooner but have been very busy, to say how much we all enjoyed your band's performance at the ball. Many club members have said what a wonderful band and that you really made the ball one of the best ever. We would love you to play again next year and will be in touch with the date soon.
Thank you so much for playing on Saturday. As I'm sure you already worked out, you were a massive hit - people have been raving all week about you so thank you for making our day even more special! Our only regret is that we did not spend enough time on the dance floor - having said that "I predict a riot" will forever bring a smile to our faces! Kind regards, Verity and Tom.
Thank you for giving us such great music and great fun! Those on the dance floor really worked their pudding-calories off, I loved it and don't get a chance to dance often enough! Best wishes from us both, Philippa and Jamie Symington
Thanks so much for a fantastic performance on Thursday night the band were great. We have had so many positive comments about how great you were and it was so good to see people get straight up on the dance floor! Thanks again for everything you have been great.
Dear Debbie, we were really pleased with the event last Saturday and the guests were so pleased that they would like to book for next year. Thank you for the part you played in the evening, the music was enjoyed by all of our guests and staff and the atmosphere in the barn was fantastic. I look forward to working with you in the future.
Thank you all for your wonderful contribution to our party on Saturday. You were fantastic, played and sang brilliantly and created such an amazing atmosphere for us all to enjoy. You pitched your performance perfectly with a fantastic selection of music to ensure that everyone had a great time on the dance floor, which never seemed less than full! We have had so much praise for you with many comments from our guests such as the most brilliant band and the best live band heard at a party ever being just two. We hope to be able to see you again and look forward to another party with you playing. Thank you once again.
Thank you so much for being so fabulous last night. The dance floor was absolutely packed from the minute you started and they would have continued on all night given half the chance!
Just had to send you a little email to say a BIG thank you to everyone in the band for a wonderful night - the music was fantastic. Philippa summed up the evening by saying and I quote "it was the best night of my life!!". I had about 50 of Philippa's friends for breakfast the next morning and they couldn't stop telling me how great the music was. Many thanks you made a great party that little bit extra special.
We have used The Gold Standard for our Christmas party nights and our New Years Eve event for the last three years at the Radisson (Stansted) and they know how to get a party started!! The Gold Standard is a fabulously entertaining band, versatile in the variety of songs they sing, catering for all tastes of the audience. Debbie's energy and enthusiasm ensures that everyone enjoys their evening and they truly are a pleasure to listen to. We recommend The Gold Standard if any of our clients are looking for a band as we know no-one will be disappointed with their performance.
Thank you so much for all you did yesterday to make my 50th Birthday Party such a success. You were the utmost professionals and it was clear you care and take pride in all that you do. Everyone had a great time and the texts and phone calls keep coming in to that effect and that was due in no small part to your performance and skill as entertainers in reading the dance floor. We wish you every success and rest assured will have no hesitation in booking you again ourselves or recommending you to others. It was a pleasure to have met you all and we are grateful to the agent for their recommendation. Thank you so much.
Dear Debbie & the band! You were all just fabulous!!! Thank you for making our Wedding Day (evening) start and end in such style! All our love Tony & Rochelle Darby.
We just wanted to write to thank you so much for being such a huge part of our wedding day and for making it such a success. It was a pleasure to finally meet you and you were such a delight to work with. We thought the band was great and we have had many compliments! Well done on making the ceilidh such a success, not an easy task with so many people in such a small (hot) room! It was very much enjoyed by the Scottish and English alike, many of whom were a little nervous about "prancing about" as they referred to it! We had the most amazing wedding day and thank you for helping to make it so personal. Much love Susannah & Nick Lee
The Gold Standard were stunning! The music was great and Debbie was quite the best vocalist I've heard live for some time, (as well as being a real live wire in her interaction with the guests and quite the prettiest girl at the party!). Staff at Hintlesham reckoned The Gold Standard were the best live band they've ever had at the venue!!
The Gold Standard were fantastic! Debbie had the most amazing voice, she was a great entertainer, got the crowd involved and everyone had a fantastic time. The band made our wedding party a night to remember! The whole crowd loved them. Five star entertainment, we would hire them again and would most definitely recommend The Gold Standard to anyone.
