"Tommy and the Big Guns were absolutely epic at our wedding - they topped off the most perfect day for us! Our guests did not leave the dance floor, every single song was amazing and we loved every second."

Overview

Tommy & The Big Guns are the mighty older brother of The Tommy Guns

This band are one of the most popular bands in the country and it's easy to see why. The guys that make up the band know exactly how to get the dance floor full and you can see from their numerous amazing reviews that testament to this. As a group of friends, they gel together which is apparent in their low maintenance attitude to setting up, and perform with undeniable onstage chemistry and the charisma of their frontmen. Both Jono and Ian provide vocals and guitar, giving you a rich sound and variety of vocals.

The band offer daytime acoustic add-ons for your ceremony or drinks reception, and the option to add-on manned DJ service when not playing live, meaning you have all your entertainment covered by one versatile act!

Tommy & The Big Guns

Tommy and The Big Guns were absolutely epic at our wedding - they topped off the most perfect day for us! Our guests did not leave the dance floor, every single song was amazing and we loved every second. The band made our special day even more perfect and incredible fun! We can't thank you enough.

Tommy & The Big Guns

We just wanted to say the biggest thank you from the absolute bottom of our heart. You made our day so so special! It is not lost on us how many times we had to change it but you made it so perfect and so easy, it never became frustrating or a sad moment. You guys were incredible!! It was actually amazing! The set list was perfect and everyone loved it. I’ve lost count of how many people have text us saying that you are the best band they’ve ever heard and we can’t disagree! You made the wedding so special and unforgettable! Could not recommend you enough. Thank you so so much!

Tommy & The Big Guns

We were very happy with the service we received. It was an easy process and we were kept updated through e-mails. The band got in touch with the venue and everything was seamless. The Tommy Guns were amazing and the dance floor was always full, it seemed personal to us too and adhered to our song requests .......absolutely fantastic!! Our guests loved them just as much as we did!

Tommy & The Big Guns

The Tommy Guns blew everyone away! They just kept smashing out banger after banger - no one left the dance floor the whole night! They also did a great job of mixing it up for a spread of generations - starting with more classic rock stuff then transitioning to more contemporary as the night went on.
Would highly highly recommend them to anyone!

Tommy & The Big Guns

A huge thank you to Johno and the boys the dance floor was packed all evening. A fantastic band and really nice people. They made our birthday party a huge success for which we are very grateful. Vicky & Peter

Tommy & The Big Guns

The Tommy Guns were absolutely incredible!! They had every guest dancing from the moment they started playing to the moment they finished. They were a highlight of the wedding and all our guests have commented on how fantastic they were. On top of this, they were really lovely guys who communicated well throughout and were organised and really helpful with any queries we had in the lead up to the day. We feel so lucky to have had them play at our wedding. I would recommend them to anyone. 10/10!!

Tommy & The Big Guns

Tommy Guns were amazing!! Best wedding band I have ever seen and heard. Everyone said how fabulous they were. Ian was so easy to get a hold of and completely made the whole experience easy and fun! Our first dance song was played perfectly. Really couldn't have asked for a better band!

Also, Libbi at Hireaband was very helpful and made the booking experience painless

Highly recommend hireaband and also the Tommy Guns

Tommy & The Big Guns

Tommy Guns were spot on with what we wanted for our event. Good sounds, Good Stage presence and most important thing for me got people up dancing at an early set.

Tommy & The Big Guns

Hi Ian,


Just wanted to say a massive thank you for last night! We’re still buzzing.


You guys were incredible!
I had fears of an empty dance floor leading up to the wedding- but you absolutely killed it with the tunes. There were family members busting moves who no one has ever seen set foot on the dance floor

Tommy & The Big Guns

The Tommy Guns were absolutely amazing. Not only were they a brilliant band, but they were such nice guys and made their whole performance really personal to us and gave us plenty of shout outs!

Tommy & The Big Guns

The Tommy Guns played at our wedding on the Isle of Wight and they were sensational. Great communication in the run-up, and they accommodated all our song requests, even learning a couple of our favourites. On the night we ended up running about 45 minutes late, and they seamlessly adapted their sets to suit. They had so much energy and the dance floor was full straight away until the very end of the night. Several people commented on how excellent they were. We'd book them again in a heartbeat, and in fact we're trying to work out an excuse for another party so we can do so! Thank you guys, Jamie & Katherine

The band were absolutely fantastic and kept everyone dancing throughout the night. They were very friendly and were great when the groom joined in the singing. Great guys and great musicians.

Tommy & The Big Guns

Excellent service from Ken at HireaBand when booking the fantastic Tommy Guns for our wedding on Saturday.

Ian and the guys were absolutely amazing from start to finish, great mix of classic old school hits to current day chart, everybody loved them and were up dancing from start to finish! Will definitely recommend The Tommy Guns to friends.

Tommy & The Big Guns

The Tommy Guns played an acoustic set and a band set at our wedding at East Quay Venue on 18th November and they were absolutely fantastic! The dance floor was full and the atmosphere was incredible - our guests loved them as much as we did! They were a lovely group of guys and a pleasure to have at our wedding. We really can't recommend them highly enough - thank you so much!

Tommy & The Big Guns

Amazing night! Everyone is still buzzing, massive thank you to Ian, Jono and the guys for smashing it!
They were flexible and professional throughout and during the lead up to the wedding helped plan ways to execute certain additional surprises!
For the show itself, no one could believe it when they played 'killing in the name of' and I even crowd surfed at my own wedding, so all in all amazing memories!
Well done guys!
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a wedding band that combines energy, style and charisma!

Tommy & The Big Guns

The band were great in every way - very polite, good lads and the performance was top notch. Everyone we've spoken to since have said how good they were also and I've already passed their details from your website to someone looking to book a band. Overall I would be happy to recommend the guys to anyone looking to book someone - they were excellent!

The Tommy Guns were a fantastic band who went above and beyond to accommodate all our needs and really finished off our wedding celebrations with a bang. They were fun, friendly, polite and super flexible to time changes on the day. They are brilliant musicians that covered an amazing array of songs and with such a great energy that the dance floor was never empty. They were in touch in good time, listened to our requests and were forever reassuring (important for a stressed bride) and professional. I'd hire them again in an instant - we had so many comments after about how good the band were.
Hireaband were super helpful, friendly and responsive, a very good service

The Tommy Guns were absolutely incredible. They nailed our first song they learned especially, and kept the party going all night with classics! Everyone commented how great they are. And of top of that, they are also such fun and friendly guys - the perfect addition to our special day.

From start to finish dealing with Irving and then the band themselves the whole process has been faultless. I dealt with a lot of suppliers and the band and the hireaband office were by far one of the best. Not only completely flexbile but also 100% reliable remembering everything we discussed before the day. Most importantly the band were absolutely amazing, they had the dance floor filled the whole time and everyone said they'd never seen a dance floor so filled especially so early on in the evening. Them learning our first dance turned out to be the most special and memorable part of the day for me, as everyone got up on the dance floor singing and dancing along. They also remained chilled and happy when everyone was drunk and decided they could sing haha. It made my day and I would recommend them to anyone, everyone said best entertainment they've seen at weddings and so proud they were at ours. It was a real shame the venue wouldn't allow the acoustic set to use an amp but they worked with it and were great. Literally can't thank you all enough.

Hi guys,

Brendan & I wanted to send you an email to say thank you so much for playing on our wedding day. We had the best time ever and you guys were great. From the first song, performing You're my best friend as our first dance until the bitter end of the night, it was brilliant!

All of our guests still go on about how great you guys were. Also thank you for putting up with us rowdy lot! It really was the perfect evening for us. You're an incredible band.

Thanks again,

Tommy & The Big Guns

Ian and the guys were fantastic! They made the evening so fun and were all very friendly, chatty and of course talented! Absolutely brilliant! I've had guests asking for details on how to book them too (ranging from friends who are also planning a wedding to my grandad for his 80th birthday!).
Initially a little anxious about booking online, I must say Irving at hireaband was so helpful (and the band so great) I can't recommend you all enough. Thanks for helping make the day perfect!

Hi Irving,

Thank you so much for recommending The Tommy Guns to us. They were absolutely amazing at our wedding and we could not have asked for a better band to perform for us. They had everyone up dancing and sang a variety of songs for all age ranges and everyone said how good they were. Not only that the guys were great company.

Tommy & The Big Guns

Great people to work with, made finding people very easy! Pleasure to work with.

The Tommy Guns were AMAZING! such a talented band who also happen to be the nicest bunch of lads. They were everything we wanted and so much more. All of our guests (old and young) said the same. Thank you so much!!!

Can't rate the guys highly enough, they were fantastic! They read the crowd and knew what to play which resulted in a fantastic atmosphere at our wedding. Plus they nailed our first dance song which they had learnt especially for us. In fact our guests were so impressed one couple want to book them for their wedding in the New Year! All in all the booking of the band and the performance The Tommy Guns gave was one of the least stressful admin elements of the whole day and we thought they are worth every penny (and in fact a whole lot more!).

Hi Ian,

Michael and I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for playing at our wedding on Saturday at Hedingham Castle - you guys were absolutely amazing and made the whole evening so much fun. We especially loved the mini nightclub vibe on the dance floor at the end, everyone had such a great time and I think pretty much every guest came up to us to tell us that, and asked how we found you!

Thanks so much again, hope you all enjoyed yourselves too.

We booked The Tommy Guns for our wedding in June. It's always quite nerve wracking hiring a band for a day that you will never forget but The Tommy guns absolutely made our wedding. There were people dancing from the first song to the last and of every age. We would recommend them to anyone whether it be a party or a wedding! you wont be disappointed!

Tommy & The Big Guns

We Had The Tommy Guns at my 40th and the energy that they brought with them was incredible. Felt like i was 20 again!

Tommy & The Big Guns

We saw The Tommy Guns at our friends wedding booked them that night. We had a wide range of ages attending our big day so we asked The Tommy Guns to cater for that. The boys were lovely gentlemen who covered so many genres and decades that everybody loved. We also had a lovely rendition of Baby, I'm Yours as our first dance that the band played as we danced. Its quite magic having a live band playing for you! we Highly recommend this band! The kids also loved the One direction songs they added in on request! :)
