“After an extensive google search, I found and booked The Thatchers for a housewarming / 40th birthday party and I was absolutely delighted I did!! They were absolutely brilliant. Not only that, they were friendly, adaptable and just generally willing to please! Their presence created a fantastic atmosphere for our party and our guests absolutely loved them too! Would not hesitate to recommend them and even book them again for a future party!”Laura Pym - 40th Birthday Party
“5/5 The Thatchers Band were unbelievable from start to finish, their videos on the website do not do them justice. Not only did they keep everyone on the dance floor the whole evening but they were so accommodating! They put up with our rowdy family and friends who all got extremely merry, the bride and groom especially so!!! Please send them our thanks for what was truly the best night ever. (And a sorry for our drunkenness!!) Such a lovely group of people to have create the best night for everyone.”Catherine Carmichael - Wedding, Greenwood Manor Hampshire
“The band were extremely well received by all the wedding guests. Everyone who attended said how impressed by the band they were, especially the lead vocalist. Overall the whole experience with the band has been extremely positive, and I won't hesitate in recommending them at every opportunity!”Dougie Haskins - Wedding, Harmans Cross Village Hall, Swanage
“We just wanted to say a big thank you very much to you and the Thatchers for providing such fantastic music at our wedding. All of the band members were super friendly and relaxed and played a great couple of sets which really suited the vibe of our day, the dance floor was always full and they played all our favourite songs! Would certainly recommend them!”Jo Fletcher - Wedding, Falconhurst, Kent
“The Thatchers played at our wedding last week and they were fantastic. We have had so many comments since about how good the band were and where did we find them etc. The songs that were played got everyone up on the dance floor and it was full all night! We chatted to the band briefly and they were very friendly. The staff/owner of the venue (Brookfield Barn) commented to us the morning after how lovely the band were, which is not his typical experience from other bands. Overall we are thrilled that we chose The Thatchers to be our wedding band and would recommend them. Thank you!”Lizzy and Neill - Wedding, Brookfield Barn, Horsham
