Just a quick note to say thank you to the Milestones for performing at our wedding. They were AMAZING! The dance floor was full right from the first dance to the last, they had everyone boogying the whole night long.
I put my complete trust in the band and had only requested a couple of songs and they sure delivered. So many guests commented to us about how good the band were and how they had the dance floor full the whole time. The Milestones are such a friendly and talented group.
The whole process has been stress free and professional and we would like to thank the band and everyone involved for helping to make our wedding truly one to remember.
In one word – AMAZING! I wanted to write a testimonial, so in just a few words… The Milestones were absolutely fantastic! From start to finish all our wedding guests were up dancing and can’t stop talking about the party and music!
By far they exceeded our expectations and completely made the party one to remember!
It was the best decision ever to book them. They totally made our night and all our guests have commented on how fantastic they were!
We just wanted to say a huge thank you – you were extremely professional, ringing prior to the event to check a few details, setting up quickly and quietly on the day.
Your performance was brilliant and had everyone up dancing. We loved the range of music, especially our chosen first dance.
The Milestones were fantastic – they blew us away with their music! They were every bit as professional and entertaining as I expected and were a lovely bunch of people too.
I think they enjoyed themselves as much as we did!
I just wanted to say how absolutely AMAZING The Milestones were at our wedding!!! It was the best decision ever to book them...Kate & Alistair - Wedding at Hill Farm, Bury St Edmunds
They capture the heart and soul of Motown but somehow manage to make it current and relevant for a modern crowd - AMAZING! I was concerned that picking a band of quite a specific genre, we might be limiting some of the guests who may not be familiar with the tunes...However, the opposite was the case.Sara & Max's Wedding - Leigh Court, Bristol
