Reviews

 ‘Badges are a fantastic band, they cover a broad range of tracks from chill out, funky jazz and soul to more upbeat modern songs and sometimes they add a personal twist on the current chart music which is simply brilliant.  We have used Badge for a large annual conference in 2012 and they were a real hit with the crowd.  We have also used the duo for a couple of smaller events and these have been equally well received.  I would recommend them for any type of event from wedding through to corporate entertainment. They are a great all-round choice.’ – Rachel Sulley, Virgin Media Business 

‘We would like to thank you and the rest of your band for the part you played in the success of our 2012 Virgin Media Business Conference on the 3rd May 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. We received really good feedback from the delegates during the event, who have expressed that this year’s was the best ever – which really is fantastic. The music played during the evening was diverse and allowed for guests that didn’t wish to join the ‘main’ party to experience a more relaxed and chilled environment, with the music to match this. Then of course the last set towards the end of the night, really finished the evening on a high!  Once again, thanks very much and we look forward to working with you in the future.’ – Kim Collins and Genine Norman, Venues Event Management

‘Brilliant band, with excellent musicians. Badges played at our  wedding reception and went down a storm. They had everyone up and dancing from kids to grandparents.  They played a varied selection of timeless songs, from modern hits to 60’s and 70’s classics.  We were really surprised to see how many people they managed to get onto the dance floor.  Badge brought great energy to the party and had everyone calling for more. The only  disappointment was when they had to leave.’ – James and Alice, Wedding, Leeds, August 2010

‘We had Badges play at our wedding reception recently and they were fabulous. The venue was not huge and the dance area was small and it would have been very easy for the sound to have completely swamped the area, but Badges are very professional and hit just the right volume. The music was terrific. Kat’s voice has a great range, depth and tone, and she fronts the band and meets with the audience brilliantly. They played a wide range of songs from back in the 60’s up to the present day and were a total knock out. The dance floor was packed and there were lots of people just crowding round to watch the band. Many guests came up to me at the time, and since, to say how good Badge were.’ – Dave and Barbara, Wedding, Derbyshire, July 2010

‘Badges played at my husband’s 40th Birthday Party on the 8th May  2010 and what a fantastic set of people they were. We have never booked a band  before and with 130 guests of a mixed age group in our garden we were nervous!  We didn’t need to be, they were fantastic. With Kat’s beautiful voice and her  talented musicians behind her I don’t think we could have picked anyone better.  Everyone thought they were great and we would have no reservations in recommending them.  They pitched the song choice and beat just perfect!! Thank you to so much for making our party!’ – James and Jean, 40th Birthday, Doncaster, May 2010

‘Badges played for us very recently at a garden party. The choice of songs  for the set list worked perfectly; a few mellow numbers to begin, slowly building so  that by the middle of the first set, the “early dancers” were up on the floor. For the      whole of the second set, the dance floor was packed and Kat had all 100 guests in the  palm of the hand singing along with the choruses. Just Brilliant. The day after the  party we were visited by neighbours who we had never seen before. They had been sitting  in their garden listening to the music and they came to find out about this fabulous band  so that they can book them for their own party. I rest my case!’ – David, 50th birthday party, Sheffield, S Yorks, August 2009
