Many thanks and regards to all.”Maggie - 70th Birthday Party, Winchester

“Georg and I wanted to write to you and the other members of The Magic Tones to thank you once more for playing for us on Saturday. In case it wasn't clear by the over loaded, sweat laiden dance floor, our guests adored you. 2 local friends planning their weddings for next year were disappointed they had already booked different bands as they would have booked you if they had had the chance. One friend who is a guitarist was very impressed how you managed to come into Mr Brightside from the unusual mix we had as our first dance. The party really got started when you guys started playing and the atmosphere was electric. Our fond memories of our perhaps quirky wedding will be of standing in the middle of a pulsating dance floor, surrounded by happy faces singing along. We shall continue spreading the word in Salisbury about the band. Thanks for playing for us. All the best”Abi and Georg Stuebner - Wedding, Rose & Crown, Salisbury, Wiltshire

These guys were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They set up discretely and, when the time came, launched into non-stop music that had the floor full all night.

You played our first dance note perfect and from that moment everyone was up on the dance floor until you finished. The last 20 minutes of your set went down a storm as you built up to the finale. The day went so quick and there is a lot to take in but you guys stood out as an exceptional feature of an all round superb day.

Please pass on our thanks to them"”Emily Brocks - Wedding, Burcombe Manor, Salisbury
“Hi Amy, Thank you very much for both AJ, and The Magic Tones - both were excellent. We had a few people commenting about AJ during the day on his guitar, saying he was very good, and that it was brilliant to have. Very nice guy, and would recommend him to anyone. Think he might have got a little burnt sat in the sun though :) The Magic Tones were superb. Sadly, not as many people danced as we would have liked, but we made up for that the best we could! They were brilliant, and can't thank them enough for learning our first dance, as we know it was a little unusual to the "normal" choices. They played it (and she sang it) amazingly. We spoke to the singer (sorry, I can't remember her name) a few times and she was lovely, and very keen to make sure we were happy. I think half way through the second set, they realised the rocky-er songs got people dancing (which she said after was odd, as it's usually the cheesy stuff) so changed there set around which was brilliant. The band were great, and she was brilliant - we couldn't recommend these guys enough and rave about her vocals to everyone. Thank you very much!”Jon and Kerry Cummings - Wedding, Elmers Court Hotel, Hampshire

A lot of people commented on their performance and how fantastic they were. We had such a special day at the Master Builders and the Magic Tones topped it off perfectly. The first dances were performed faultlessly and with fun. We were more than impressed with Tailored Entertainment on a whole, the friendly, flexible and professional way you dealt with us. I will be recommending the Magic Tones and Tailored Entertainment to everyone I come across who needs an amazing wedding band. Actually, already one of our guests asked for your details to book them for his wedding instead of the DJ he had organized, that's how impressed he was lol!!Thank you guys so very much for being part and making our special day amazing!!!”Joules & Scott - Wedding, The Master Builder's, Beaulieu, Hampshire
“Hi, Please give the band a huge thank-you on my behalf. The day was perfect and the band did everything that we wanted and more. We have had lots of positive comments about the band. They were set up and ready to go on-time, they did the first dance exactly as we had hoped, and they kept the dance floor going from start to finish. I hope the band also enjoyed the evening and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any event.”Gordon Heley - Wedding, Audley Wood Hotel, Basingstoke.
“We had a fabulous night, and just a massive thank you to you and the whole band. Everyone had such an amazing night, and have had so many comments about the band, I think they were surprised at how good they were (of course I already knew that lol) People even commented them in our wedding book! I know I certainly had a great night as I don't think I left the dance floor! My feet certainly hurt in the morning, but totally worth it, the music was just brilliant.”Katie & Ian - Wedding, Rhinefield House Hotel, Brockenhurst, Hampshire.

“The band was absolutely wonderful. We have had lots of feedback from our guests about how talented they were - many of them said they are the best they have heard at a wedding. We agree! We were really pleased with how the band performed the song for our first dance, and were so happy they took the time to download the unusual songs we had requested to be mixed into the pre-mixed disco. We have had a few people ask who the band were and have made sure to pass your details on to them. Can you pass our thanks on to the band for making the evening such a wonderful occasion, and for their hard work and energy. Thank you again for all your help in planning the band’s performance at our wedding. With kind regards”Ad & Steve - Wedding, Rhinefield Hour, Brockenhurst, New Forest.

“Hi Phoebe, We would like to say a huge thank you to The Magic Tones for performing at our wedding. Their live set rounded off our perfect day. Their energy and sound got almost everyone up dancing and left people wanting more at the end of the night. The vocalist had a beautiful voice and the band blended perfectly together performing an excellent repertoire of songs. The adapted version of our first dance song was excellent. A wedding band will often dictate the evenings entertainment and the Magictones certainly did a fantastic job. Booking through Tailored Entertainment was very easy and they delivered a personal service - Phoebe being particularly helpful and answering any questions we had. We would definitely recommend both The Magic Tones as a band and also the booking of entertainment through Tailored Entertainment. Many thanks for the excellent sound and service.”Rebecca and Andrew - Wedding, Clock Barn, Tufton Warren, Whitchurch
“Hi Phoebe, The Magic Tones were simply fantastic. They sounded amazing; had an excellent set-list; and they packed the dance floor from start to finish!

Please thank the band again for making our wedding unforgettable!Kind regards,”Zoe & James - Wedding, Beaulieu Abbey, John Montagu Building, Brockenhurst, Hampshire

Lucie and I loved the rendition of our first dance and all sets were fantastic.”Mr & Mrs Singh - Wedding, Silchester House, Hampshire
“Dear Phoebe, In short, the band were amazing! The obscure first dance song that we asked the Magic Tones to learn for us (You're Lovely To Me by Lucky Jim) was performed impeccably with a fantastic male lead vocal and from that point on the energy and enthusiasm of the band was relentless. The song choices of the band meant that the dance floor was jumping during all three of the very enjoyable sets. The vocals from the female lead were exceptional and the band were highly professional throughout the evening. They even allowed some of our more excitable guests to perform some guest vocals towards the end of the night. We have had nothing but positive feedback about the band from our guests and would not hesitate in recommending The Magic Tones to anyone looking for a first rate wedding band. Many thanks,”David and Katherine - Rhinefield House, Brockenhurst, New Forest
“Hi Phoebe, What a fantastic evening. We have had so much positive feedback about the band and how good they were. From the first to the last minute the dance floor was full which I haven't seen that often at weddings, and this is testament to the bands energy and class. Thank you so much and I'm not sure I need to do much in the way of referral as there are 150 advocates of their work now!”Mark Owners - Wedding, Great Fosters Hotel, Egham
“I just wanted to say how great The Magic Tones were on Saturday night – everyone commented on how good they were and helped to create a great atmosphere. Please pass on my thanks to the band.”Lucketts - Corporate Party, Ferneham Hall, Fareham
“The night was a great success, the band were all set up ready when I arrived, they asked me a few questions before the guests arrived and then started promptly. They were fantastic and all the guests said how good they were. Please can you pass on to them my thanks for making a great evening. I would also like to thank them for making such an effort singing Rick Astley - Never gonna give you up!! My favourite song, from my school days!! Please also pass on my apologies for not getting the chance to thank them and say goodbye at the end of the evening. The evening went so fast and I was caught up with guests. Thanks again to everyone for their part in helping to organise.”Nikki - Birthday Party, Skylark Golf & Country Park
“We had a fantastic day and night thank you. The band were outstanding. They played out first dance to perfection. The male vocalist had a great voice and interacted with the crowd really well. The lady singer was incredible. A very talented group and I would highly recommend to anyone. When we told the venue who was performing the staff were excited as they had performed recently and thought they were superb. I hope they got their bacon sandwiches, soft drinks and cake! Many thanks, ”Catherine - Wedding, Rhinefield House, Brockenhurst
“We had a superb night. The band were brilliant, better than we could have imagined. Please pass on our thanks to the band for taking the trouble to learn Elton John’s Your Song for our first dance. Please also accept out apologies for the evening not running to schedule. A problem unfortunately beyond my control. The band were great in reorganising their set times and we were very grateful for their flexibility. We have since had many many great comments about the band. Thanks once again,”Alex - Wedding, Rhinefield House Hotel, Brockenhurst
“A massive thank you to the band for giving us such a brilliant evening. They had the entire room dancing within seconds and their choices of songs and music were absolutely superb.

“Hi Phoebe, The band were incredible. Everyone was saying how great they were. They got the audience up dancing. Everyone danced all night including some who hate dancing!! I can't thank them enough.

“The Magic Tones were amazing - they had our guests up on the feet from the moment they started playing!! We had some great feedback from everyone saying how good they were! They really helped make our night amazing. Many thanks”Amanda - Anniversary Party, Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth
“The Magic Tones were by far one of the best covers band we have ever seen. Their performance at our wedding was second to none, many of our friends have mentioned to us since the wedding just how amazing the band were and we absolutely agree. The set list and timings worked amazingly well and we're not sure that they would have left the building alive if they hadn't played one more song like they did at the end of the night. It was great to see that the dance floor was never empty. From a personal perspective, how the band fitted with our overall plans and theme for the wedding was seamless. Their set up was very professional and (if we hadn't been to the bar as they were setting up) independent from us - which was exactly what we needed on our big day. They way that the band learnt and then performed our slightly obscure first dance was amazing. Sam and I were blown away by the performance (bearing in mind we have both seen the original artist perform this song a number of times!). Again, Sam and I cannot fault the set list, the pace and the fact that everyone was up and dancing on every song that was played was awesome. They are incredibly talented. We just wish we could re-live it again and again. We cannot thank the band enough!”Ian & Sam Mayhew - Wedding, Sopley Mill, Hampshire
“For me the Magic Tones were great. Everything I hoped and wished for. Wow! What can I say about how wonderful the band were and how they made my party truly memorable, not just for me but everybody that was there. Having the right entertainment to ensure the party ‘goes with a bang’ is critical and I think it’s fair to say we picked the right band and some!!!!! From the gentle acoustic set, to the ‘let’s get them up and dancing’ set it was all one big resounding success :) The selection of music played from start to finish was perfect and ensured everybody stayed on the dance floor, which is exactly what I wanted. So many of my friends have commented on how wonderful the band were, so not only will they be firmly etched in my memory for years to come, they will also be etched in the memories of many of my friends. I also know that many of my friends on the night thanked the band and told them how great they were, which I’m really pleased about as they richly deserved the praise. Thank you again ‘Magic Tones’ for creating such a brilliant atmosphere and helping to make my party so memorable for so many From my perspective I would also like to thank you for your help and support in arranging this. It has all gone very smoothly and helped make the planning for this event a lot less stressful than it could have been. Very Best Regards”Tracie & Craig Butt- Birthday Party at a Private Address
“The Magic Tones were completely brilliant. Booking the band couldn’t have been easier and they were very accommodating in our set list requests and timings, including letting the groom surprise everyone by singing a song with the band. Each member of the band was stand-out, from the drummer to the lead singer. This was not lost on our guests who have been raving about them ever since. We’ve been to a lot of weddings in the last few years and the Magic Tones were one of the very best bands we’ve heard. They had everyone on the dancefloor from the first song till the end of the night. We couldn’t recommend them enough.”Catherine - Wedding, De Vere New Place, Hampshire
“From the outset of planning our big day, we always knew we wanted a live band as it's one of the most important parts of a wedding. Having seen the YouTube videos and song list we were confident that The Magic Tones would be the best fit for our taste in music. Booking the band was really easy and all of the team were extremely helpful at Tailored Entertainment. The band arrived and set up quickly unnoticed by guests. When they started playing we couldn't have been happier! They are the most amazing wedding band we have ever heard (we've been to over 20 weddings)! We can't thank them enough for making our wedding day so special! All of the guests were saying how amazing the band were and a few are hoping to book them later this year! we literally didn't leave the dance floor the whole time the band were playing and all of our song requests were taken on board and played! Not really quite sure how to put into words how thankful we are!”Mia - Wedding - Taplins Place, Hook
“The Magic Tones were absolutely amazing at our wedding! Everyone young and old were up dancing all night, definitely one of the best decisions we made. Couldn't ask for more from the band and would definitely recommend them to anyone.”Sarah - Wedding, Powderham Castle, Devon
“The Magic Tones were the perfect Wedding band. They kept the dance floor full all night and the energy they put into their wonderfully upbeat music didn't dip from 7 to midnight. My husband isn't a dancing fan and even he was spotted more than once having a boogie! Our first dance was a perfect rendition of L-O-V-E (in fact is there any chance of them recording it for us? We are happy to pay for the time it takes and would love to be able to listen back to it). Our father daughter, mother son dance will also always be an amazing memory with the perfect sound! The band timed their sets perfectly to work around food and when people looked like they were starting to flag! They made a fantastic addition to our perfect day and it sounds like a lot of our guests will be future customers!”Helen Boyd, Wedding, Thereby Courtyard Nottinghamshire
“Hi, just wanted to send a quick email to thank The Magic Tones and all involved for such a wonderful show they put on during our wedding last week. Ive always been reluctant to use a "wedding band" as a lot sound similar to what a high school band would (if that makes sense) but you guys sounded amazing and were professional throughout. Myself and Lucy commented on the night how bad we felt not greeting you when you arrived or having much contact but I guess this also shows how professional the band were to get in and set up without any fuss whatsoever. I wish you all the best for the future and hope I get the opportunity to recommend you to any potential parties/weddings.”Tim & Lucy Plumbe - Wedding, Parley Manor, Dorset
“Thank you for making our wedding day go out with such a bang! We haven’t danced that much in ages, and sharing your wonderful music with my friends and family made the day extra special. Our First Dance was perfect and once he got there, Dad loved his Dad/Daughter Dance. Your set timings were perfect and the energy you gave to your music and performance definitely rubbed off! You really were the perfect wedding band!”Helen & Jason Marks - Wedding, Thoresby Courtyard, Nottinghamshire
