“I didn’t get to thank the guys properly Saturday so wanted to send a huge thank you to them (and you for organising)! It was absolutely perfect and everyone had such a good time! I’ve had so many great comments about how good they were, where did we find them, where are they from!! Massive success, thank you! Their relaxed attitude was also much appreciated and fitted into our style, we really went with the flow from start to finish! I’m still waiting to have a bridezilla moment! Maybe for the next one!!! Massive thank you for Below My Feet too, it was perfect!!! Amazing weekend all round and thank you for your contribution to it!!”Sara Hunt – Wedding, Gloucestershire
“Alive 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
“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! Alive 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”Paul Simpson – Party, Hertfordshire
“Guys, Lauren and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing absolutely brilliantly at our wedding on Friday. All of our guests have been raving about your sets and we absolutely loved it! 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 x”Chris & Lauren – Wedding, Dorton House, Buckinghamshire
“Hi, Just a quick note to say thank you for playing at our wedding on the 19th. Everyone absolutely loved the music and we were thoroughly impressed with your professionalism. If we needed a band in the future, we’d definitely book you again. Thanks, Karen and Paul”Karen & Paul – Wedding, Suffolk
“Alive 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 x”Becky & Rob – Wedding, Kent
“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 texted 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 anyday of the week.”David Butler – Wedding, Kent
“On behalf of Petersfield Events, a HUGE thank you for recommending Alive 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
“Oh my just wanted to thank you guys for your amazing performance on Saturday, we absolutely LOVED you and you made our first song sound better than the original. You even brought tears to some eyes! Such a fun bunch and so talented. We are so glad we found you guys. We loved how you got stuck in and had fun at our wedding too, it made us so happy to see you having a great time. Thanks as well for lending my brother your guitar and then drumming as a background whilst on break. What a lovely thing to do we are so grateful! My brother said it’s so rare to find guys that both sing and drum! The music was just to our taste we were so happy and danced the night away. My wedding was perfect and you guys helped make it that way and I’m now looking for excuses to hire you again! Can’t express how happy and impressed we are !! Thanks to everyone behind the scenes for being wonderful and accommodating of our songs. I want to hold on to these memories forever!”Cat and Damion – Wedding, Milton Keynes
“The news is all good! We’ve had nothing but fantastic comments from our guests, and the compliments are still coming in ‘where did you get them from – they were fantastic’ etc. Everyone I spoke to thought they played to the highest calibre, huge repertoire and the whole evening absolutely brilliant! I found Nick to be extremely professional and pleasant – and certainly very flexible to our needs. He was able to deal with some last minute changes very efficiently. It’s so important to get the music right at an event like this, and in choose Alive we certainly did – I’d have no problem recommending them to others.”Alyson Lucas – Wedding, Ardington House, NR Oxford
“A massive ‘Thank You’ to Alive for an amazing display at our wedding at Ingleside House in September 2014. We were so glad we found you guys and after listening to over 100 bands it was good to find one where the lead signer could actually sing!! The speeches ran over and you waited patiently and then listening to you play Moondance with my wife’s brother singing made both our days and we really appreciated your flexibility. The dance floor was full all evening and everyone commented on how awesome you guys were. On a school report I would give you 10 out of 10 for your flawless performance. I honestly think that you guys have a massive future and my advice is to keep doing what you do. I can’t recommend you enough and I will certainly book you for the next function we have. Very best of luck for the future and thanks again for making our wedding day so special”Mr and Mrs Hughes – Wedding, Gloucestershire
“I just wanted to say what a fantastic band Alive were when they performed at my 50th birthday party on Saturday night. You never know whether a band will live up to their hype but the guys did an amazing job and sounded every bit as good as we had hoped for. They had everyone on the dancefloor from when they started to the very end and all my guests thought they were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants a great evening!”Paul Johnson (CEO Kew Green Hotels) – Private Party, Surrey
“Absolutely the best band I have ever seen!!!! Luckily for me it happened to be at my wedding! Accommodating to say the least and read the crowd like a children's book!!!! Bloody brilliant!”Nancy Thornton - Wedding, The Bartley Lodge Hotel, Cadnam
“We would both like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Alive for playing at our wedding and for making the party extra special. We were so impressed at how professional and flexible you were as getting all the equipment onto the HMS Belfast was not an easy task. Our whole day was so special, full of fun and laughs and having a great band was very important to us as we love a good dance. You guys certainly made sure that everyone filled the dance floor throughout the whole night, we didn't want you to end! You are a lovely bunch of guys who were very accommodating to all our needs and everyone loved you! Thank you SO much, we will never forget our wedding day or you guys, we will definitely book you again and recommend you to anyone and everyone!”Leanne and Paul - Wedding, HMS Belfast, London

“We'd like to say a massive thank you to Alive, they were a lovely bunch of lads, very professional, and the quality of performance was acceptionaly high.

You were Fab and hopefully you may return to the idyllic location if Crickwell Farm .. Hope you enjoyed the pasties Cheers”Paul & Di - Wedding, Crockwell Farm, Eydon, Northamptonshire
“Hello Phoebe, Alive were incredible, they were all that we hoped for and more. Many guests commented on how fantastic they were. Our photographer who has been to many weddings over the last 8 years said they were the best wedding band he had seen. They really got the party started and kept it going until the end. We would also like to thank them for playing our first dance song. I couldn't recommend them enough and almost want to get married again so we can book them!!!! I hope the guys enjoyed the evening too. Thank you for all your help in the run up to the wedding. Many thanks”Hannah and Matthew Wood - Wedding, Rugmer Hill Farm, Yalding
“'Alive' were absolutely awesome!!!! We have seen many live bands and performers and these boys were the best, and we had them for our wedding. We are completely over the moon. The voices and talent with instruments were some of the best and we have had ALL our guests comment on how great they were. Please pass on our thanks onto the boys. We are dying to see them perform again so will definitely recommend to our friends and family.”Jo & James - Wedding, The Elvetham Hotel, Wintney, Hook
“To Alive, wow wow WOW!!! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding at 'The Elvetham' in Hampshire. We were so happy with the performance. There are so fantastic and ALL our guests were raving about them. We cannot say enough good things about them! Also a huge thanks to Everyone who helped with the booking! It was too easy so thanks! All the best.”Joanna and James - Wedding, The Elvetham Hotel, Hartley, Wintney
“Hi Phoebe, What can I say...Alive were just amazing!! They made the wedding evening so special & everyone was on the dance floor the minute they started playing. Everyone is still talking about how fantastic they were! We are so extremely happy we found them.Thank you so much! From two very happy newlyweds,”Imogen & Damian - Wedding, The Orangery, Wrest Park, Silsoe, Luton, Bedfordshire
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for a fantastic night of brilliant music. I have lost count of the number of friends who have commented on your band – they loved the music and appreciated how talented you all are.”Mandy Ling - Party, The Warnham Barn, Warnham.
“I just wanted to say how amazing the boys were, from start to finish everyone was up on their feet dancing - including me!! I didn't leave the dance floor all night and no one wanted them to stop playing. Finding a band was, for us, one of the hardest jobs but we couldn't be happier with our choice and so many people have commented on how brilliant they were. We feel very lucky that we found Alive online as the evening of our wedding was such an important part for us and it was just perfect. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”Natalie - Wedding, Upwaltham Barns, Chichester
“We wanted to say a giant thank you to Alive. I was wary of booking a band based only on a video but they were even better live. Seems like wedding bands have changed - these lads were so cool our guests thought we'd hired them on some kind of exclusive deal. Their sound and energy made the atmosphere electric and everyone was dancing all night! They were stuck in traffic for hours but were in a good mood all night and they learnt our (little known) first dance tune , including audience participation, based on a you tube video. Seemed like a big ask, but they did it anyway and it sounded great. For anyone looking I would say whatever your budget, the music is make or break so scrimp on the shoes, ditch the favours, do DIY everything, whatever it takes...but book the band! Hand on heart our wedding would not have been the same without them. Please pass on our feedback and sincere thanks for their trek down to Devon and making our night.”Heather Roberts - Wedding, River Cottage HQ, Axminster
“We had the most amazing day. Everything about it was so special. One thing we were really looking forward to was you guys, the band, and you did not disappoint. You were brilliant from start to finish. You set up on time without disturbing anything, played our first dance exactly how we had requested and kept everyone on the dancefloor all night. Our younger friends and older relatives alike commented on how much fun they had dancing and how good the band was. We cannot thank you enough. All the best.”Andrew and Lizzie - Wedding
“Alive were amazing! Everyone enjoyed themselves and were up dancing all night and the guys were very friendly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a live band for an event! Thank you very much!”Carly Bewley - Wedding, Tortworth Court Hotel, Tortworth
“Hi Guys, just wanted to thank you again for the incredible set on Saturday. You absolutely smashed it and so many people have said you were the best band from any wedding they've ever been to...just what we wanted to hear. Seriously, you made the evening something incredible. Legends.”Gareth & Georgie - Wedding, The Crooked Billet, Stoke
“I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for being awesome at our wedding, you were absolutely fantastic. Your performance was spot on and you managed to get everyone feeling lively and up on the dance floor. I in particular want to thank you for how well you handled the sound limiter. I was told by the venue that they'd had loads of bands play there before and they'd had no problems, which can't be right. I was very worried about it after it cut out the first time but you did so well to keep within its limits. Everyone commented just how good you all were. Playing in bands ourselves, music is very important to us, and you really made our reception perfect. Thank you.”Amy Hennessey - Wedding, The Italian Villa, Poole
“Alive, were an amazing band with the perfect sound and didn’t miss a beat, they made our first dance PERFECT with an amazing rendition on ’noah and the whales’, ’5 years time’. During there 3 sets every single song was perfectly produced, and everyone at our wedding said how amazing they where and that, it was a perfect match for our wedding. The band were very professional and even being a 5 piece they were very compact. Thank you for an amazing night!!!”Jamie Gibbons - Wedding, Moggerhanger Park, Bedford
“Good morning Phoebe, Just a quick note to say how brilliant we thought the band were and how much we enjoyed it. They gave us exactly what we were hoping for, and set the tone for a night of drunken lairiness – which is exactly what we wanted!! I’ve had numerous comments from guests as well, who all thought they were fantastic. And they were good crack as well, putting up with the drunken louts! So thank you!! And please pass this on to the guys, as I know it was a long way to travel, but it’s massively appreciated. All the best…”Stephen Wooldridge - Wedding, Swallows Nest Barn, Warwick
“Finding a good wedding band was a real challenge for us. Pete used to be in a band and I am SO fussy when it comes to cover bands. I have a really high cringe factor and an aversion to cheese! We wanted a cool band that represented the style and vibe of our wedding and these guys were absolutely perfect. They looked good, sounded amazing and the authentic 'real' band sound. Everyone loved them and all of our guests were up on the dance floor within 10 seconds of them starting to play. I will absolutely keep them in mind for future events and recommend them to friends.”Holly Patrick - Wedding, The Vaults, London
“Alive were amazing! The first dance was brilliant and we were very surprised to hear you had only learnt it the day before - it sounded like you had been playing it for ages! Alive were really nice and accommodating - you didn't even seem to mind when our guests decided to 'help' with the singing! All our guests have said since the wedding, you were the best band they've seen! You definitely were one of the highlights of the day! Thanks for everything - you were awesome!”Emma Snowdon - Wedding, The Octagon, London
“Hi Amy, We would just like to say a huge thank you to the band for their entertainment yesterday, they were absolutely amazing and were everything we wanted for our wedding. Our guests loved them and were very complementary. I've passed the band details on to a few that have asked. We'd also like to say thank you to the band for being so flexible and friendly, playing our requests both live and recorded tracks, and posing for some awesome photos! Which we'll send on when we get them from the photographer.”Cheryl and Rob - Wedding, Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Herts
