They totally engaged with the crowd and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their performance.”Chloe - Corporate, De Vere Totworth Court, Totworth
“The Wanderland Band performed extremely well in the circumstances. The venue was incredibly tight and noisy, but the general feedback from most was they were very entertaining and they would like to see them again. Given our venue were running slightly late with dinner service, they were very laid about the slight delay and played just past their curfew, which was much appreciated”Matt - Wedding, Hartsfield Manor, Betchworth
“5/5 - 'The Wanderland Band' were just fantastic. Words can not describe how great they were. When they started roaming around the room playing and mingling with our guests during desserts it was at that exact moment I found myself being able to relax for the first time in the day. To sit at the top table as newly married husband and wife and see all my friends and family singing and dancing away made me so happy and a moment I will cherish. The band made our wedding and were such a hit and I've had endless compliments.”Amelia & Jonathan - Wedding, Searcys, London

“We both wanted to send an absolutely massive thank you to The Wanderland Band. When we were planning our wedding, the most important thing to us was that the day was fun and different from the get-go.... the guys made this happen for us and so much more.
They arrived really early which James and his groomsmen were really pleased about - it really took the pressure off. James had a good chat with them and worked out the best way for them to surprise everyone with the Bare Necessities at the end of our ceremony. They really seemed to care about making it work as best as it could and were so professional from the start.
Their performance was absolutely faultless and more than we ever hoped it would be. The song choices were perfect, they interacted non stop with the guests and created the most fantastic celebration atmosphere - just what we were after. They worked so hard, yet it seemed effortless.
We wanted a few different songs at different stages (the confetti throw/our entrance etc) and these all just happened exactly on queue without us having to do anything.... SO professional. They even announced my dads speech which was perfect.
A massive memory is walking down the drive after having some photos taken listening to our whole wedding party having a singalong to 'Angels'.... we were both beaming.... our wedding was the fun party day we were hoping for. In hindsight, we wish we had booked them ALL day. They were cracking and we definitely hope to be able to book them again for something in the future.
Needless to say, the feedback from our guests has been outstanding. They all loved them and they've been a huge talking point of the entire day ever since!
So thank you thank you thank you. We will recommend the guys to everyone and anyone. Just cracking.
Thanks to you guys also as from the beginning your replies were quick and clear and communication was seamless. We had absolutely no worries when the day came around that everything was in hand.”Gabby and James - Wedding, Cripps Barn, Gloucestershire
“They were FANTASTIC. Really great. Took it upon
themselves to sing outside around the fire, everyone loved them.”Helen & Chris Wright- Wedding, Dunmow
“Just a quick email to say the band were absolutely incredible, so we'd be grateful if you can pass our thanks onto them. They were perfect for our wedding and we had so much positive feedback from our guests (surely a few more bookings from that crowd in future!) they really created such a buzz and fun atmosphere and I'm sure that's what got everyone on the dance floor for our dj.
Thank you so much again, we'll forward any photos/videos we receive on.”Maddy - Wedding, Rickling House, Saffron Walden
“5/5 They were brilliant and perfect for our baby's christening reception.
Everybody loved them and they even managed a few unusual requests!
We'd be happy to book them again in the future. Please pass on our thanks again to the band for traveling all the way up to Cheshire”Emilie Mercer - Christening, Vale Royal Abbey, Cheshire
“The band were absolutely fantastic, every single person thoroughly loved the band. On the day the weather was terrible so we were unable to go into the gardens but that did not matter in the end as the band kept the atmosphere going the whole time they were there.
All of my family and friends were asking where we had found them, as everyone thought they were brilliant and very interactive with the crowd. 100% will recommend them to anyone else having any events!”Sarah Johnson - Wedding, The Langham, London
“The band were totally brilliant! We loved them and we had so many of our wedding guests ask where we found them. They were not only really talented musicians but were personable and charismatic. They got everyone up and dancing and created a great atmosphere that really topped off our wedding day. The staff we dealt with to book the band were also very polite, responsive and helpful. Thanks so much!!!”Joseph & Victoria - Wedding, Petersham Nurseries, Richmond
“Wow! They were amazing! They provided such entertainment and enthusiasm throughout the night and really were the life and soul of the party. We and our guests had a great time with the band, in particular their last few numbers, 'Wonderwall' and 'I Wanna Be Like You' which worked perfectly with the crowd, creating some really memorable moments. Even the staff at the venue commented that they were probably the best band they'd ever seen at the venue! Please pass on our thanks to the band who really made our wedding special.”Fiona Dickinson - Wedding, Clock Barn, Hampshire
