Dear Hireaband - Very happy with the Talent. The choice of music was good and they got people dancing. The manager of the venue also remarked that the guys were very pleasant and that she would recommend them in future. Only problem for me was I spent so much time talking to people I missed most of the second session. The problem with do's like this for the host! Steven George - Birthday Party - Wimbledon
Hi Barrie - just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thanks to The Talent for the fantastic live music at our wedding in Essex. They were excellent and really made the evening. I guess it's always a bit touch and go when you book a band that you haven't seen play live before, but honestly, we thought they were excellent and we had nothing at all to worry about. We would definitely recommend them for any functions or events in the Essex / East Anglia area. The song they learned for us was excellent and much better than we had thought it would be, they did it complete justice and was all we could have wanted - we loved it and thought that The Talent was the best wedding band we have ever seen. They were great. Thanks again Janis and Mark
Hi we would like to say a BIG thank you to 'The Talent' who played at our wedding evening celebrations on Friday 5th March at Layer Marney Tower. They were excellent and a great end to an already perfect day. The Talent are without a doubt the band to choose for a wedding or party and we will have no hesitation in recommending them to all of our friends and family. Sally-Ann & Chris
Hi Barrie Happy New Year. I just wanted to thank you and more importantly The Talent for playing at our wedding on 5th December. The guys were great, our guests raved about how good they were and they even kept the fireworks a secret! Seriously, it made all the difference (so much better than a cheesy disco). We were absolutely thrilled. I've been to many weddings in in Essex, Suffolk area for my friends over the years and I'm proud to say that The Talent have set a very very high standard. Thanks to everyone and for all your help with the logistics. Kind regards Claire, Maldon, Essex
Hi Barrie, We have now just returned from our honeymoon in Vegas and thought we'd send you a little memento from our wedding day at Stoke by Nayland, Suffolk. Both myself & Gemma would like to personally thank you and the band for your performance at our wedding reception. All the guests, family and staff commented on how good you all were. The Talent are an amazing live band with everything and more. Hope you enjoyed the hog roast, sweet shop (lol) and drinks and we hope to get along to seeing you at one of your next gigs. All the best to you all and i will be forwarding your number to all who attended as they all wish to see you again so a very high recommendation from us. Cheers Buddy Mike & Gem (Mr & Mrs Bourne)
Hi Barrie. I just wanted to pass on our heartfelt thanks to the Talent for their performance at our wedding on Monday 26th October at Smeetham Hall Barn in Sudbury, Suffolk. The band were AMAZING. Everyone commented afterwards on how professional and entertaining they were. Our day was perfect in every way, there was NOTHING we would have changed ? so please do pass on our thanks and let me know if you would like me to write a review for you guys. We went to see bands from all over the place in the hope of finding the perfect live entertainment for our wedding day and The Talent were more than we could of hoped for. Best wishes, Simon and Emily
Hello Barrie, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing at our wedding. You rocked. Everyone has complimented you and several asked for your bands details. The Talent really made the evening reception. I hope you got enough to eat/drink too. I've just about got over the slow dance to Robbie Williams (haha) but there are some amazing photos from that particular part. My youngest cousin, who is now your biggest fan, definitely had a good time, I hope he hasn't been stalking you or anything weird like that ... but he will at the very least never forget our wedding. Anther memorable part that was ultimately your responsibility was the brides father swinging his jacket off to sex on fire! Classic! We cannot thank you enough for such a great set! One resounding statement from the night was how the drummer was singing and drumming and both so well at once. Perhaps you should be called the multi-Talent-ed. Anyway Sinead and I are so so grateful for your contribution to our day. Nice one. Lewis and Sinead Carey
Dear Barrie, We just wanted to sat thank you so much for the fantastic performance of The Talent at our wedding on 3rd September in Colchester, Essex. Everyone has been saying how fantastic they were, I just thought you would be really pleased with the feedback. It was an amazing day and the music made it perfect!! The dance-floor was never empty. I fell over on it quite a bit...I think that was my mean friends making me drink tequila....oh dear!! Apologies to the band for my drunkenness! Thanks so much again, Georgie and Phil Broom
Hi Guys, Now we are back home and back to reality I wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for providing an amazing evening of music at our wedding. Matt was happily indulged with the Muse track and I would like to thank you for your patience when it came to me throwing the bouquet, all 3 times! I drank a little more than I intended, as I'm sure you realised as I introduced myself to you when unpacking your van, but this didn't stop me having an amazing night, helped hugely by The Talent. Your band topped our wedding off perfectly and we could not of asked for better wedding entertainment - just a brilliant live band. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves on the dance floor and letting go of any inhibitions they had. We had many comments from friends and family about what a great band The Talent are and would like to pass on their thanks too. The support you provided in responding to my many questions along the way was also greatly appreciated as it helped take away planning stress. Thanks so much for helping make our day enjoyable and special. Hanna and Matt Taylor
Dear Barrie, Apologies it's taken so long to drop you a note, but my husband and I would just like to say a massive thank you to The Talent and for making our Big Day so magical in Essex. We had an amazing time, and you all did a fantastic job of getting the crowd going on the dance floor later on in the evening. I simply adored your choice of last song (Hey Jude). It's one of my favourite tunes of all time - I was delighted that you played it and it was a great send off to a fantastic night. We looked high & low for great live music and entertainment for our wedding and The Talent were the solution. They quite simply rocked and made our wedding day very very special. Please pass our thanks onto all the band members and wishing you all the very best for the future. Kind regards, Andrea & Phil James 8th August
Hi Barrie, We would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to you all for a fantastic evenings live music, far better than any disco!!! Just what we asked for, Fun & funky with no Abba. The Talent were superb, we had a great night and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves commenting on how good the band were. Lots of dancing from young and old, some we were not too sure if they should have but at least they enjoyed themselves. Thank you also for accompanying us for our first dance, we loved every minute of it even though we forgot the moves :o) We would recommend The Talent to anyone. The Manager of the Hotel in Essex was impressed with the guys and has requested that we forward on details to him should they have need of or to recommend a live band. We wish you every success for the future. Regards Robert & Racheal Harbord
