Testimonials

“Hi Nick, To surmise, they were absolutely fantastic. It wasn’t a massive party and sometimes a 50th birthday can be a funny one to play to, but they pitched it absolutely spot on with the songs they chose, how they played them and how they sounded. The guys all seemed to enter into the spirit of it all too, playing a few extras at the end. Genuinely, they made a cracking evening a brilliant one. They are a credit to you (and themselves) and without hesitation, I’d be happy to give them a hugely positive recommendation. Please pass on my sincerest thanks.”Andy Douglas – Birthday Party, Saughton Hall, Flintshire

“Hello, please could you pass on our thanks to festival sons!!! They were amazing. Everybody loved them and we has the best evening. Our first dance was perfect and sounded amazing, we wondered if there was any way we could have a copy of them singing it (All of me) and if this is possible how much would it cost. Would just make our day so much more memorable. Thought I would ask. Thanks”Nick Knowlton and Debbie Knowlton – Wedding, Solent Hotel & Spa, Fareham

So many people asked who they were and where we had found them and the praise is still coming in. The age range of guests spanned over 40 years and they literally had everyone up on the dance floor all night. They played exactly the right balance of current music and some classics but nothing cheesy…these guys are cool yet FUN!! The party was in our house.

I have seen lots of bands over my four years here and ‘Festival Sons’ will stick in my mind as one of best!”Jenny – Wedding, Preston Court, Kent

“Festival Sons played our wedding on Saturday night and were absolutely brilliant! They totally rocked. Everyone was dancing, young and old, until the bitter end and everyone commented on how good they were. My friends, husband and I are pretty hard-core music fans and we like to think we know what we’re talking about when it comes to music and these guys were stunning! They thoroughly surpassed our expectations and made for an unforgettable night. Great songlist, loads of energy and really nice lads too. Booking, correspondence and organisation was seamless. They were happy to arrange for the sound engineer to set up a bit early so we could play our own playlist first which was very helpful too. Thanks so much guys. You finished off our day with a party that we’ll never forget. Hope you enjoyed yourselves too! Love Bex & Rob”Becky & Rob – Wedding, Kent

“These guys are as good as it gets, our wedding was rocking and I keep looking for an excuse to have a party just so I can get these guys back! They were very helpful and accommodating. 10/10. Thanks guys. Leicester Road Poole Dorset.”Terry Pike – Wedding, Poole, Dorset

Thanks also for playing extra songs after the set had concluded – it went down really well as you saw from the enthusiastic reaction of our friends. On a personal note, thanks for letting me gatecrash the stage and sing with you. It was another magical moment in what was a truly awesome day! We’ll certainly be recommending you to our families and friends. All the very best and hope to see you at some stage in the future. Cheers”Chris & Lauren – Wedding, Dorton House, Buckinghamshire

“Wow…first class customer care from when Iain arrived to set up all the sound and lighting equipment – all very professional. The band are a pleasure to deal with, and are clearly skilled musicians who are able to adapt to their environment and audiences musical tastes…they really do Rock! Festival Sons and Iain created a very special night of live music that my family and guests will not forget. Thank you so much. 10/10”Paul Simpson – Party, Hertfordshire

“Festival Sons provided a truly excellent show for our wedding. Their flexibility to accomodate our requests with setup, set list and use of the kit was much appreciated. Most importantly, the band are superb. Our guests all loved their work and everyone commented as much. We didn’t expect so many people to be dancing as long as they did. We would definitely book them again. cheers!”Tom & Laura – Wedding, Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa, Surrey

“Dear Nick, We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how immensely happy we were to have the FestivalSons guys play at our Wedding on 11th October. These guys are amazing! Ever since we first came across them, we were looking forward to having them play for us, and they 100% did not disappoint. They were absolutely fantastic. Our dance floor didn’t empty for the duration of both sets, and we got so many of our guests say how good they were afterwards. In particular, we would like to thank them for playing our first dance live which we weren’t expecting – a really nice touch and a great memory. For anyone considering these guys, we recommend them a hundred times over. They really made our wedding day special. Massive thanks and please ensure that is passed on to the guys, and the sound engineer.”James & Alison Haigh – Wedding, Gravetye Manor, West Sussex

“A massive thank you to everyone involved in doing our wedding on the 19th July! The band were amazing and everyone was dancing the whole night! Millie dealt with all our requests before the day perfectly and professionally. On the day (which was ridiculously hot!) the guys set up quickly and didn’t get in anyone’s way. The sound engineer was brilliant and they did a great job on the first dance. Everyone has said how good the music was and were so happy that they were part of our perfect day! Mr Brightside was epic!! Cheers guys”Alan & Annie – Wedding, Hertfordshire

“Festival Sons were excellent, really friendly and flexible group of lads who played with great passion during the evening. Dance floor was full the moment the first dance was over. Really happy that we picked this band. Could have been a gamble but ended up a dead cert!”Matthew Wall – Wedding, Hampshire

“I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much to Festival Sons for playing at my wedding on May 24th a few weeks ago. You guys did an utterly amazing job. It was fantastic to see everyone up on the dance floor so quickly and having a great time dancing – it really made the evening something special! Everyone has commented on how great the band was, which I think is a great testimony to how good you were. Good Luck with future gigs.”Lara Abbott – Wedding, Somerset

“These lads were great; so many of our guests commented on how good they made the evening that it made me wonder whether or not my wife and I really needed to be there! They played the right music with only a very loose description of what we wanted, and responded to what went down well. They’ve got more stage presence than your typical wedding band, and having them up there made our bunch of 30-somethings feel a whole lot cooler than they really are for the night!”Jon Reeves – Wedding, Bath

“On behalf of Petersfield Events, a HUGE thank you for recommending Festival Sons to us for our festival – they were absolutely amazing!! From the outset they had the whole crowd jumping about and dancing to tunes that we’re all used to hearing on the radio all the time. A lot of people said that if they closed their eyes and listened it was just like having their favourite band actually on stage – so accurate was their performance. And when they opened their eyes it even looked like it too – as the band looked so cool!”Pete Dew – Petersfield Events

“Exactly the kind of music, sound and band we were looking for. They are extremely cool and totally rocked the venue. We went from a relatively empty dance floor to a “mosh pit” within a few songs. One of the female attendees text us after the event to ask where on earth we got such a “cool, hip and totally fit” band esp the drummer apparently. So yep would recommend hiring them any day of the week.”David Butler – Wedding, Kent

“Festival Sons were absolutely SUPERB! Good music was a priority for us and we certainly got it. The set up was great, their repertoire was a perfect mix and they seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. Julie and I found ourselves running back to the dance floor so that we didn't miss a single tune! Many, many of our guests commented on what a "find" they were. Ian was an absolute gem too. Thank you very much, we couldn't be happier.”Olly & Jules - Wedding, Burleigh Hill Farm, Cambridgeshire

“Brilliant band, great sound, really got the party going, so many thanks to Festival & Sons for helping to make our Summer Party such a success!”Brian Ward - Corporate Summer Party, Suffolk

“Hi Amy, I just wanted to pass on a massive thank you to the Festival Sons, we had an amazing wedding day and they just topped it off!! Everyone commented on how amazing they were and they excelled our expectations by a million times- the best wedding band we've ever heard!! I've attached a couple of images which they welcome to use, but I just wanted to say a humongous thanks to them and hope you can pass it on to them.”Naomi & Kevin - Wedding, Newton Park Barn, Milton Keynes

“Festival Sons were absolutely fantastic, and completely exceeded all of our hopes and expectations. The first Mumford style set was amazing, and got all our friends and relatives dancing right from the start. The second, more electric set kept everyone on the dancefloor, to the end of the night. We can't say enough positive things about Festival Sons; everything about the whole experience was easy, simple and stress -free, and they provided the perfect soundtrack to our perfect day. All our guests commented on how brilliant they were. We absolutely loved them, and would recommend them to anyone as they are brilliant.”Steve Sharman - Wedding, Maidstone

“Hi Amy, They were AMAZING! Definitely a highlight of the day. So many people commented on them- they were so professional, really adapted to what the crowd wanted, created a great atmosphere and were great fun! They even gave us two extra songs, the lead singer put on a daffodil hat and allowed the groom to come up and join him on the mike (one of his personnel favourite memories). Let me know if you need any more info than that because I am more than happy to sing their praises!”Anna Jury - Wedding, Low Gale, Lanes

“Thank you so much for a great night!! Everyone had an amazing time!”Camille Soubrane - Wedding, Henley-On Thames

“Hi Amy, The band were brilliant. All our guests thought they were very good and the dance floor was always full. Great selection of songs. Absolutely no complaints. Keep on doing what you're doing!”Angela Beecroft - Wedding, Hazlemere

“Hello, The band were worth every single penny, such a lovely, lively and carasmatic bunch of guys. They got the dance floor full and the atmosphere was amazing. They were flawless there set and didn't mind me talking to them when we're were sat outside on hay bails having a bite to eat. I have been asked by so many people where I found them, and all I can say is I'm glad I stumbled on them. If i ever have the opportunity to hire a band again, I know who I will try to get. The acoustic man Si we had as well was amazing, his voice was very croud pleasing, I didn't have time to talk to him at all as I'm sure you know what it's like at wedding but he was great as well, your acts are of a very high quality. Thanks so much for all your help, I don't have one ounce of regret with booking through you.”Laura Arnold - Wedding, Russit Wood Farm, Herstmonceux

“Both of us and every guest we had were blown away by the band, they were absolutely brilliant! The first dance song they learnt was performed perfectly, we were really impressed and it brought a lot of extra smiles as we danced to it. Then as soon as they kicked off the first set after the first dance we couldn't believe that everyone jumped straight in to dance! We were a little worried that it may have been a bit early and guests weren't going to be dancing so soon but they proved us wrong! Hats off to the band as they captured both young and old guests to dance the whole way through the evening. We had so many messages and compliments about how good the band were from guests it was clearly a highlight of the day (besides the wedding bit!) We felt so lucky to find this band to perform on our wedding day. It's a shame they don't record their sets so you can buy a cd of the night as that would be extremely popular! Thanks again for everything, we will be sure to recommend you to any of our friends.”Matt & Shen - Wedding, Wasing Park, Reading.

“Just to say that the Festival Sons were amazing on our wedding day at Newton Hall and all the guests commented on how good they were and how much they enjoyed the night.

“Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You all did an amazing job and I (Jen) loved every minute as you could probably tell! The guests all commented on how wonderful you were and the set list was perfect. We all had loads of fun dancing along. Thanks for letting my dad play with you! And thank you for a wonderful version of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.”Mr and Mrs Byford - Wedding, The Thatched Barn, Yelling, Cambridgeshire

Everyone was dancing all night long, the song choice was perfect and we had so much good feedback from our guests! So so happy we booked them.Please pass on a huge thanks!”Gemma & Nick - Wedding, The Bell Inn, High Street, Ticehurst, East Sussex

“Music is a big part of our lives. We go to loads of festival and gigs, and therefore we spent a long time choosing a band that would bring that extra wow factor to our day, and Festival Sons 100% fit the brief. The fact that they offered two styles of sets, one Indie Folk, and one Electric, gave great variation and something for everyone. Their versions of well known tracks were great, and their performance of our first dance song which was perhaps an obscure choice, was perfect. We had amazing comments from our guests, and I think the giant conga line, knees up dancing, and sing alongs showed that everyone had a great time. Some of the girls were also a little bit in love with a couple of the boys! I would recommend Festival Sons, and I'm glad we booked them for our special day. Thank you boys.”Anja & Scott - Wedding, Rivervale Barn, Yateley, Hampshire

Thank you for all your help and you might well get a request from us in the future to have them back for an anniversary party ;-)”Katharina - Wedding, East Quay, Whitstable Harbour, Whitstable, Kent

“Hello Phoebe, Festival Sons can only be described as absolutely outstanding! Everyone was up on the dance floor all night, dancing their socks off, which is just what we wanted.

“Hi Phoebe, Just a quick email to say that the boys were absolutely fantastic on Saturday night. They really made the party. All of our guests thought they were just brilliant & the ladies wanted to take them home!! They not only performed amazingly but were thoughtful, courteous & great fun. Really made by birthday very special indeed. Even having me on stage singing 500 miles with them, their idea not mine, didn’t dampen the atmosphere & had everyone on the dance floor!! Also to the DJ who was equally fantastic. We had hired a sound system for when they all left but he wasn’t very happy with it & stayed for an extra hour so as to not leave us in the lurch. A real gentleman! I think they all enjoyed the party as much as we enjoyed all of them. Thank you again Best wishes”Jon & Gilli - Birthday Party, Manor Barn, Chichester

Thanks again!”Charlie & James - Wedding, The Long Barn, Newton Valance

“Festival Sons were absolutely amazing and we had the best night!!! Everyone commented on how amazing the band were. Many Thanks for providing such a great band.”Lauren - Wedding, Over Barn, Gloucester

“We would like to say just how amazing the band was. At all times they were extremely professional and courteous and the music was fantastic. We were running a little behind schedule so the band had to wait a little while before getting set up but they were politely patient and happy to wait. Once they were set up and started playing, the hall transformed and everyone had a blast, even for such a small hall, the music sounded superb. I had a lot of feedback from guests saying how amazing the band was and it really made the night. The disco set was also fantastic and the dance floor was never empty. My only regret was that I was often so busy mingling with guests that I missed out on some of the bands' performances. I also missed saying goodbye to the band when they were leaving so please pass on my thanks. We are both extremely pleased with our decision to hire the Festival Sons and would recommend them to anyone looking for great live entertainment. Many Thanks”Jamie and Ashleigh Stevenson - Wedding, East Dean Village Hall, Chichester

“Having only seen Festival Sons online prior to our wedding day they lived up to everything we had seen and heard and more. Our guests really enjoyed all the music particularly the acoustic set and the Mumford and Sons style music. We wouldn't hesitate to re-book for another event or recommend to friends and family.”Sarah & Thomas - Wedding, Calveley Lodge, Cornwall

“I could not have asked for more, they were fantastic! They played a great mix throughout the evening, clearly worked out what we liked through the night and played exactly what we wanted. Me and the wife felt this was a major highlight. I have also been asked for contact details for future weddings. Truly fantastic and worth the extra cash. A million times better than a DJ! Please send out thanks onto the band. Thank you!”Tim - Wedding - Fanhams Hall, Hertfordshire

“We hope you are well, if possible can you pass on a huge thank you to the festival sons, they were perfect!!!! Everyone had such a fantastic time, dancing the night away to such great music! Their repertoire and arrangements were spot on. Our first dance was so special and we cannot thank them all enough. The band were so friendly and helpful throughout the evening as well, thank you.”Charlie - Wedding - Southfleet, Kent

“Festival Sons were absolutely brilliant at our wedding on July 9th. They kicked off with our first dance song which they did brilliantly and following that they kept people on the dance floor all evening. I loved the different style sets they offered - it helped please people of all tastes. We had so many positive comments about the band, and they have a new number-one fan in our nephew who has named his goldfish after Ben! We would recommend Festival Sons highly - they perfectly rounded off what had been the most brilliant day for us. Please pass on our heart-felt thanks to them.”Amy - Wedding, Norman Court Barn, Andover

“We hired Festival Sons and they were incredible! The sound engineer, Ian, came and set up earlier in the day meaning this wasn't done during our wedding, he was very professional and worked hard to suit our ideas and wishes. He helped organise me, by letting me know when the band were ready and when we could do our first dance (I didn't have a clue!). The band sounded amazing and so many of our guests commented on the awesome atmosphere they created. They were very flexible, trying a song they didn't really know for my friends from New Zealand to sing with them, and it sounded as if they had rehearsed it knew it very well. We can't explain how good they sounded and how the selection of music suited us. We'd like to say a huge thank you to festival sons!”Lisa & Will Mouland - Wedding, Home Farm, Dorset

“Can you pass on a huuuuuuuge thank you to the festival sons, they were perfect!!!! Everyone had such a fantastic time, dancing the night away to such great music! Their repertoire and arrangements were spot on. Our first dance was so special and we cannot thank them all enough. The band were so friendly and helpful throughout the evening as well, thank you.”Charlie - Wedding, Southfleet

“What can we say! It was incredible, everyone loved the music, the timings of when to increase the tempo, the band members dispositions, they were incredible, loved the vocalist! They had everyone dancing and everyone loves the party! Thank you so much! We are have recommended you to friends and family already.”Clair and Greg - Wedding, New Milton

“Thank you very much for being part of our special day. We had a wonderful time and this was helped by having such a good and entertaining band. Many people have mentioned this week how much they enjoyed the music at our wedding. Thanks again for all your help in making our day special. We will certainly recommend the band to others.All the best for the future.”Ben and Lou - Wedding, Cain Manor

“You were every bit as good as we were hoping, & more, & everyone we spoke to during & after your set said how brilliant you were. We were so, so happy with your performance. We really appreciate you allowing the mind-blowing Rhian Grundy to sing with you too (as well as the Scottish drunk... he could just about remember doing it at breakfast this morning!). You guys were great fun & really professional. Several people asked for the name of your band so we told them to look you up on YouTube. Maybe you'll get some more bookings & we might even see you again!”Emma - Wedding, Oldwalls, Gower

“Please send on our thanks to the band, they went down very well with the guests and their performance was great! Also thank you to yourself for all your help in booking.”Rhiannon - Corporate Event, London

“Hi Phoebe, I just wanted to let you know that the band were fantastic and really turned the wedding reception into a party! Could you kindly pass on our praise to the band (and sound engineer) and thank them for being part of what was a truly memorable day? The band also took a couple of selfies with all our guests so if it is possible to get a copy of that photo, it would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks for all your help too in organising. Kind regards”Peter Cartwright - Wedding, Gaynes Park, Essex

“Dear Phoebe, Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the very talented guys from Festival Sons for playing our wedding. They were incredible, so many people said to us how good they were. I even had friends trying to cancel their own wedding bands to book them instead! They added so much to the atmosphere of the teepee and they played our first dance song "Be my baby" brilliantly. We couldn't have asked for a better band at our wedding reception, we are still loving watching the videos of everyone dancing to them. I have attached a few photos of everyone having a good time to the band. Best Wishes”Nicole and Marc - Wedding, Pimhill Barn, Shrewsbury.

“Hi Guys, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. We had so many comments from our guests about how great you were! The dance floor was full all night which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you again and we hope to see you guys play again some day.”Katrina and Richard - Wedding, Swallows Nest Barn, Warwick

“We had Festival Sons at our wedding and they were fantastic! The acoustic set in the marquee at the start set the tone for the evening with some old and new classics and was a perfect set for guests to arrive and listen to. After the meal the band moved to the main hall and were very accommodating as we were running late with speeches and clearing up tables. They played one long set throughout the evening and the dance floor was full all night - the band played a set list as per our prior requests and I could not have wished for a better band to play! I have had many comments from guests about how good they were and have recommended them to friends who are having functions in the future. A great night was had!”Richie and Zoe - Wedding, Mickleham Village Hall, Surrey

“Festival Sons were brilliant, no complaints at all! Actually sounded much better in real life than on their website! Also the DJing was great and brilliant song choices. Thanks for helping to make our wedding great!”Hannah Cooper - Wedding, Cripps Stone Barn, Cheltenham

“Hi Emma, Amy and everyone in Festival Sons, We just wanted to drop you an email to say a massive thank you for performing at our wedding on the 22nd of December in Sopley Mill. We had an incredible day and we were so thrilled with the music throughout the evening. Everyone has complimented us on how much fun they had dancing and how great you guys sounded which we are so grateful for as it really makes the whole experience! We loved your rendition of our first dance Secret Smile it was just how we had imagined! Thank you.”Emma and Johnathan Wright - Wedding, Sopley Mill, Hampshire

“Hi Emma, The band were absolutely amazing. Firstly, they were super professional, turned up nice and early and set up without us having to coordinate anything. Completely took any stress off our shoulders. Secondly, they sounded great and put on a great show. We had several professional musicians as guests and all were very impressed with how good the band were. Please pass on my thanks to the band.”Alex Murrell - Wedding, Stone Barn, Cheltenham

“Thank you so much for your amazing performance at our wedding in Cornwall on April 1st! Oli and I are massive music fans, and we spent ages picking a band for the evening before we even thought about dresses or suits or flowers or any of that kind of stuff! That's why we were delighted to have you with us in the evening providing professional, top quality music and a really great set list :-) Loads of guests commented that it was like being at a professional gig rather than a wedding, which is exactly what we wanted! (and we totally agree!) You really helped to make our wedding incredibly special, and although we and our crew may have been slow to fill the dance floor, you guys were REALLY appreciated! Our communications with Tailored Entertainment were very good in the run up to the wedding, and we would definitely like to thank Amy for all her support and quick replies to our emails.”Kathryn and Oli - Wedding, The Green Cornwall, Cornwall
