“The band were absolutely fan-bloody-tastic! We could not have asked for a better band. Our wedding party were incredibly happy and lively and I think drowned out the singers half the time due to their enthusiasm! The band got the party rocking like you wouldn't believe. Everyone was having such an amazing time. I have a video of the whole venue chanting "one more song" before the band played their final song! I even believe my father tried to get them to name their price for 5 more songs (unfortunately they declined as they were sweltering under the heat). I know it was hot for them and they did amazing to play so brilliantly under the conditions. Amazing amazing amazing. Please do pass on how much fun we had.”Mr & Mrs Vivian - Wedding, Clock Barn, Whitchurch
“The band were really great thank you! They arrived on time and set up promptly! We were running a little late as our registrar was 40 minutes late but they were so cool about it! They were all so friendly and their style was perfect for our day. We had people dancing inside and people relaxing outside in the summer evening listening to them, and they all commented on how good and professional they sounded. It was a real treat. Some of their renditions have become so nostalgic to our day. Please pass on our grateful regards.”Pieter & Suzanne - Wedding - Delbury Hall, Shropshire
“We just wanted to send a short note to thank you so much for all your help with organising Vintage Roots for our Wedding. The band were absolutely incredible! The moment we took to the floor for our first dance and heard them sing the song that they had learnt for us, we knew we (and the rest of our wedding party) were in for a treat! Ultimately, the fact that the dance floor was full up for the whole evening indicates what a great band they are! We had so many comments on the night, and since our wedding, praising us for finding such a wonderful band! Quite a few people said that it's not often you can find a live band that you want to listen to all evening, yet nobody wanted them to stop! Especially as their last set came to an end and the whole audience changed 'just one more' which they happily carried out for us!! Thank you so much for making our wedding a truly memorable occasion!! With very best wishes”Bex & Matt Brown - Wedding, Tylney Hall Hotel, Hampshire
“I didn't get a chance to thank them on the night but they were brilliant. I don't remember the dance floor ever not being full! Please pass our thanks onto the band, Kind regards”Andy - Wedding, The Long Barn, Newton Valance
“Vintage Roots were amazing... Everyone is still commenting on them. They had us all dancing all night and we have some great memories because of them. They also seem like a really nice genuine bunch of people. I do have a few photos if you would like me to forward them to you. Anyway, please pass on our thanks and best wishes to the band. Also thanks to you and your colleagues to making it so easy to choose and book a band. ”Carla - Wedding ,The Master Builder's, Beaulieu (Vintage Roots)
“Well I think the resounding chorus of our guests at the end of the night said it all- 'more, more, more!!!' From the moment they started our first dance which they learnt for us, to the end of the night, everyone was up on the dancefloor. All night everyone was commenting on how good the band were, and it was so good to hear what a great time everyone had had. The band were so friendly and entertaining. A great group of very talented musicians, they engaged really well with our crowd and they really made our night- we can't thank you enough! We know a couple of guests have already considered booking you for their weddings/parties so hopefully we'll see you again!”Daniel and Katharine Terry - Wedding, The Meadow Room, Village Hall, Kent
“Hi Phoebe, James and I just wanted to send our thanks to you and the band for everything you did to make our wedding party so special. You have been so friendly, prompt and helpful in getting everything organised and we have very much appreciated it.

We loved their surprise rendition of Uptown Funk too! They were fabulous.Please pass on our huge thanks to them.Best regards”Mr & Mrs Hamson - Wedding, Poole Yacht Club, Poole, Dorset
“Hi Phoebe,The band went down a treat last night - please can you pass on our thanks to each of them. We had some really lovely comments and everything worked really well. I hope they enjoyed it too. Kristy and I just popped down to the field where we had the marquee. It's totally empty now, except for one lonely piece of paper blowing around the place. I picked it up and couldn't believe what I found, Vintage Roots Set List.... I've kept it and am going to frame it! ??”Mark and Kristy - Wedding, Dairyhouse Farm, Altrincham, Cheshire,
“Hi Phoebe, We just wanted to thank you and your amazing band Vintage Roots for playing at our wedding. They were absolutely brilliant I just wish we had booked them for longer. We had the acoustic set in the afternoon and then the whole band that evening. They were also a great bunch so thank you so much for making our day that extra bit special. Many thanks”James and Lizzie - Wedding, Ocean Exmouth
“Please pass on a massive thank you to the band, we threw a few curve balls at them on the day and they were nothing but accommodating and helpful. Everyone danced the night away and we had many compliments about how great the band were. Our requested songs were brilliant and we really appreciated them adding them to their repertoire, the 'I believe in a thing called love' ceremony sing along certainly got everyone talking...and singing...badly (sorry we drowned out their lovely voices)! The music was so important to Pete and I and Vintage Roots totally nailed it - Thank you! A big thank you also to you and Emma. It has been an absolute pleasure to liaise with you both and you have been so helpful. I hope Emma had a good birthday on the 1st and that you had plenty of cake in the office to celebrate, and that you ate it with smug glee in front of the gluten intolerant. All the very best in all you do,”The new and improved - Mrs Dean - Wedding, Secret Walled Garden, Wasing Park, Berkshire
“Hi Phoebe, Vintage Roots were completely brilliant. They pulled out crowd pleaser after crowd pleaser without straying anywhere near the usual cringey wedding band type of music. They were also super fun and nice, and generally a joy to have at our wedding. Please pass on our sincere thanks”Rosie and Rob - Wedding, Fyfield House, Marlborough, Wiltshire
“The band were excellent and went down an absolute treat, I’ve never seen so many people dancing at a military summer ball before so all credit to them. The band looked like they had an absolute blast too! Please send our regards to the band and thank them again from the Warrant Officers and Sgts Mess here at Chilwell. Thanks,”SSgt Adam Marshall - Summer Ball, Warrant Officers Mess, Nottingham.
“To all the amazing band members of Vintage Roots. Thanks so much for making our wedding evening so incredible last weekend! All of our guests commented how much they enjoyed the music and we had such an unforgettable night. Thanks for everything and for being so easy going about all our timings being out and most of all for just being generally lovely people!! All the best for the future.”Jonny & Cathy Hodges - Wedding, Kingston Park, Kent
“Amy hi, We had a great night, and thought that the band were very good. A pity that we did not get a few more people on the dance floor, but that was there loss and did not affect our enjoyment. We would recommend the band to others looking for that type of music.”Peter Godwin - Wedding, The Victorian Barn, Dorset
“"Hi Amy, The band were fantastic! Really professional and the quality was amazing. We had loads of great feedback from the guests too, in fact one of them is interested in booking them for an event this summer! They performed a great version of our first dance song (Everywhere, Fleetwood Mac) - it was very special. Thanks again to you and the band!"”James Hacking - Wedding, Mere Court Hotel, Cheshire
“I want to say a massive thank you to Vintage Roots guys who were absolutely brilliant and made our evening!

Thanks again.”James & Holly – Wedding, The Great Barn, Titchfield
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?
Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests?
We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up?
60-90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play?
At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for?
We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking
Can you provide music for our drinks reception?
Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute live lounge-style acoustic duo set (female vocals & guitar) as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on?
The published guide price is based on our 5-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Winchester. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require?
We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require?
2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks?
Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
Can we see you play live before booking?
As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
