“We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making our evening celebrations so amazing! You absolutely smashed it and wowed so many of our guests.

“The band was AMAZING. Everyone thought they were first class. Nick was also very helpful. Many thanks to you all.”Sam Thompson - Wedding, Hampshire Cottage, South Harting

“I have nothing but praise for the Fusion Dukes, they were brilliant. Massively personable band, turned up early so as to avoid any risk of being late (great!), sound was perfect, lights and smoke machine a real hit, massively talented musicians and singers, had learned a perfect version of the song for our first dance, transitions between songs were utterly flawless as though mixed by a DJ in real time. They really connected with the audience and turned the whole affair into a ‘gig’ rather than just background music to dance to. We were massively impressed, you’ve got a great band on your hands.”George Hammerton, Wedding, Rhosygilwen Mansion, Cilgerran

“Now we're back from our honeymoon, I just wanted to pop by the page to say a huge thanks the to the Fusion Dukes for your performance at our wedding on 31st July. You guys really rocked the place, so many of our guests were dying to know who the band were as they were all so impressed. A highly professional, extremely talented and lovely group of people. You really made our night special. And i'm notoriously hard to please given that I play in a function band myself, Ha!!! Thanks again guys! I would 100% recommend you to anyone looking for a band for their function and I would definitely book you again!”Gareth & Lynsey Doran - Wedding

“Jack and I just wanted to drop you a quick line with our feedback and for you to pass on our thanks to the Fusion Dukes for a fantastic performance at our wedding on 2 July. Almost every guest, and even our photographers and the pub managers said how amazing the band was! Their performance was perfect in terms of the sound we wanted and the tracks they played (you will remember we were happy to go with their recommended playlist) and the dance floor was never empty. We're only sorry we had to stop them at 11pm, due to the pub's licensing. We would be more than happy to recommend them or write a further testimonial, if that would be helpful to the band. In the meantime, we wish them great success and hope we'll see them perform again in the future. Many thanks”Jack and Vanessa - Wedding, Surrey

“The Variety of music and the performances were excellent, creating such a fun and vibrant atmosphere. We couldn’t have asked for a better band for our special day”Emma Garner - Wedding, Lake District

“Just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed the band at our party. Each set catered perfectly for the mixed crowd, the dance floor was full and the atmosphere was superb. So impressed that we can't wait until the next event to ask you back. Many thanks.”Karen Starkey - Private Party - Whitehaven, Cumbria

“A truly gripping display of musical prowess and an unmatched level of originality, The Fusion Dukes really are a live band of epic proportions!”John Bowler - Business Opening Event - Winton, Cumbria
