WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Best wedding band ever!
We booked The Showband TEN for our wedding on 24 September 22 at The Ned, London. What can we say… the best night ever! From start to finish, nothing was too much trouble. Every single person in the function band was spectacular and Dom & Victoria’s vocals were out of this world. Our first dance song was perfection, and we loved the DJ/saxophone set as well. Thank you for everything! If you ever have any doubts about booking The Showband, don’t hesitate you won’t be disappointed. Thank you very much!
The moment I saw these guys performing I knew I wanted them at my wedding. We flew the Showband SIX out from London to Como for our wedding by the lake, and they were absolutely outstanding. The dancefloor was packed the entire evening, I for one had the most amazing time dancing. The band will remain one of the highlights of the wedding. I must also add that the service leading up to the wedding provided my Andy Wann was also exceptional. He dealt with all queries in a very professional and efficient manner. Thank you to all the band for making our wedding day the best day of our lives! A function band like no other… you are amazing!
A real first-class experience, from the moment we made contact with Andy regarding our function to the last song the night, Apollo Music have been brilliant. We had the London Showband perform both an afternoon and evening set which was amazing. The afternoon acoustic set was the perfect frame for our reception drinks – our guests loved it! Everything that followed from the band was absolute perfection. The saxophone set was particularly memorable!!
Thanks again for the best night ever.
We had an epic night all because of The Showband.
We booked The Showband London for our wedding 23.09 and I can’t say enough how amazing they were… a truly incredible function band. The dance floor was full all night and they are just the loveliest people!
Everyone at the wedding and after kept saying to us how brilliant they were and what a great night it was.
We can’t thank you guys enough for making our reception so special. I would thoroughly recommend The Showband to anyone having a wedding or large function, especially if you want all your guest to be up on the dance floor!
