Reviews

      ‘A big thanks, and   heartfelt recommendations for The Beats. The band were very helpful,   professional, and most importantly tore up the dance floor! A fantastic group   that had all the guests commenting on them the next day – all postive comments   of course.’ – Matthew Conway, Wedding, Pembrokeshire

‘We just wanted to thank you absolutely incredible amounts for   the fantastic music you guys provided. We thought you were going to be good –   but WOW! Your duo just set the perfect scene as people entered the garden and   your performance of ‘Feels Like Home’ was, no exageration, better than the   original! The band really got the party going (you even had our old school   teachers up and dancing!) and everybody we spoke to said how incredible you were   (they were all trying to think of events they could throw so they had a reason   to hire you!) We honestly cannot thank you enough for giving us and all our   guests such a fantastic evening to remember. Many many   thanks!’ – Kate and Dan Cashman, Wedding, Oxford

‘What a band and what a show! The band played a fantastic selection of songs to suit all our guests meaning the dance floor was full all night!  It was especially lovely to have our first dance played live and having the full band including the brass section gave for an even fuller sound!  The band were extremely professional and clearly highly skilled musicians, this was echoed by the comments my wife and I received from all our family and friends. We really cannot recommend these guys highly enough!’ – Nick and Rachel Finnigan, Wedding, Sheffield
