For true, unrivaled live music spectacle it’s got to be The Big Smoke, the UK’s most accomplished soul showband. They’re perfect for glitzy parties and large-scale corporate events.
"My wife and I just wanted to thank both yourself and the Academy Allstars for providing such brilliant entertainment on our wedding day on 1st September. They were absolutely superb, and everybody has made really amazing comments about how good they were. There were a few dramas on the day, which the band worked with a wonderful attitude. They also let me have a sing on the mic after I had drank a few 'shandies', which I really enjoyed! I hope that they also enjoyed the evening, and I'll certainly pass on a recommendation if any of my mates need a band for future events. Many Thanks again."

"Just a quick note of thanks. You may recall that the Academy Allstars played at our wedding at Northbrook Park on Sunday 3rd June. The opinion that we had and of our guests also was that the band was absolutely awesome, the vibe was great and the genre just had everyone of all ages dancing right from the start. The song that the band learned for our first dance (Everything by Michael Buble) was a difficult song to learn I thought, but the band completely took it in their stride and absolutely nailed it. Please pass on our thanks once again – I’ll be posting a thank you card to the Guildford address (on your website) but I thought an email would be good to send also. Please pass on our thanks to the band members once again and thank you for all of your assistance in the run up to the wedding - the evening where we got to listen to the band was a really good thing to do…"
