The whole crew and team thank you for your generosity.”Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Anniversary Party
“We had a great night thank you! Just got back from honeymoon today. Many thanks for helping us with booking 8-Band. The band were brilliant from start to finish and a pleasure to work with. Polite, courteous and professional at all times and were very self-sufficient with the set up. They had the audience entertained from start to finish with a good mix of old and new songs as well as the traditional wedding classics. They also provided a great DJ set in between them being on stage. We would have no hesitation referring 8-Ball to anyone who might be looking to book them in the future and please let us know if we can be of any help with a review. Thanks also for your help with the booking.”Tricia and Matt - Wedding, Farbridge Barn, West Sussex

“I have to say that 8 Ball were amazing. They really got the crowd going and the dance floor was constantly full of people dancing and having fun. The 2 1 hour sets absolutely flew by. We couldn't be more happier with them. I hope they enjoyed themselves as well. We were also very impressed with how the boys conducted themselves, very personable and professional. We're aware that one of our guests have already recommended them on to a friend, who has since made a booking; and we ourselves wouldn't hesitate in booking them again should a future occasion arise. Thanks again to all of you.”Carl - Wedding - Sopley Mill, Dorset

“5/5 - The band were fantastic - extremely friendly and helpful. Music was brilliant. Would highly recommend!”Kat Jones - Wedding, Sopley Mill, Hampshire
“We came across 8 ball randomly whilst trying to find a wedding band online. We listened to a couple of their tracks and it seemed to be the type of thing we wanted for our wedding. We cannot believe how lucky we got with choosing this band! They began the evening by playing a brilliant version of semi sonic, secret smile that they had prepared for our first dance. They then proceeded to play fantastic tune after fantastic tune and had a packed dance floor all night long. All my wedding guests have been raving about the band and I cannot remember a wedding reception where people were enjoying themselves quite as much as they were on this night! Thank you so much for your amazing music and charisma, I am so glad we chose you as our wedding band.”Lucy Derham - Wedding, East Horton Golf Club, Eastleigh
