Wedding and Function Band Testimonials

We'd like to share some of the recommendations and messages of thanks we've had from previous clients. We're proud of the service we provide and hope to demonstrate our capabilities to you at your very own event.

 

We will certainly recommend you to all our friends and family and if we ever need a band again we will certainly be in contact.
Jenny & Andrew, Hertfordshire

 

From the first dance, the dance floor was packed and the music in between the band flowed so well we couldn't have asked for more. All ages were on the floor at one point or another and everyone had a really enjoyable evening.
Jasmine & Luke, Hertfordshire

 

We really couldn't have been more pleased with the band on our wedding day. Everything from the booking and payment to the day itself was extremely professional which helped put us at rest. The jazz in the afternoon created a really nice ambience while our guests were having their drinks and canapés. So many of our guests commented on how great the music was. We would recommend you to anyone.

Thanks again.
Nick & Helen, Hampstead

 

Thank you for making our wedding amazing!
Andy & Sarah, Brokenhurst

 

The musicianship and energy from the band are top quality. The music was a major highlight of our wedding, many of our guests are still commenting on the great band.
Jennifer, Oxfordshire

 

All of our friends commented on how much they enjoyed the band. Thank you so much for making it such a great occasion!
Eleanor, Hampshire

 

The band were amazing! They played a perfect variety of songs. I wish the night had gone on longer. Everybody had a great time and kept asking where I found them/who they were etc… They turned up promptly, set up quickly and were very friendly.

I am happy to be a reference and would definitely use them again (although I can't think at this moment when that would be – but you never know!).
Steve, Guildford

 

Well what can we say! A huge thank you to you and the guys for providing Kate & I not only superb entertainment for our wedding but also at Kate's 40th! Both evenings were a huge success and all our guests thought the band were brill!
Neil & Kate, Surrey

 

We just wanted to say thank-you so much for helping us have the most wonderful day. We had so many compliments throughout the evening and afterwards on how fantastic the band were – so we would like to pass on the thanks of our guests as well.
Pauline, Buckinghamshire

 

It all worked brilliantly and we were delighted. It was a day and evening to remember and we enjoyed every minute.
Yvonne & John, Surrey

 

We had an amazing day & both thought Azure were brilliant, we couldn't have chosen a better band!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others.
Jacqui & Adam, Bedfordshire

 

We booked Azure based on the quality of the sound recordings on your website, and based upon the variety of the songs - I am glad to say you didn't disappoint on either level! You performed our first dance brilliantly, and if I had our wedding again Azure would definitely be booked again to perform.
John, Horsham

 

Thank you for everything - you were fantastic and we, together with all of our guests, were so impressed. We can't thank you enough.
Kate, Hampstead

 

I would just like to say a massive thank you to the band for last Saturday. We had an amazing day and everybody has commented on how good the band was.

I think when people hear that there will be a band playing, they expect to hear your average run of the mill wedding band. This certainly was not the case. The guys were spot on and exceeded all our expectations.
Also many thanks to the band for playing our first dance. It was perfect and a moment we will always treasure.

I can't recommend Azure enough, they certainly made the party and kept the dance floor rocking, all night long.
Paul & Julie, Norfolk

 

The band was extremely professional, on time and made our night absolutely perfect. We would certainly recommend you for any function, and have already passed on your details to some interested people!

Thank you once again.
Abi & Heath, London

 

Other than their obvious music ability, great sound and superb repertoire, what we really appreciated from Azure was their professionalism. We never worried about anything with them and not once did we need to prompt them for anything... believe me this makes a huge difference to the day with so much else going on. They also seemed to enjoy the day as much as the guests and played the whole set with a smile on their faces!
Tom, London

 

Thank you so much for such a memorable evening.
Michael & Gill, Herts

 

Thank you so much to all the guys in Azure for your amazing performance on our Wedding night!! The set list was fantastic - there was really something for everyone. We received so many great compliments from our guests.

Azure were extremely professional, organised & very friendly. It took a great weight off our shoulders knowing that the music at our reception was in such good hands.

We would highly recommend them & hope that one day we will have an excuse to hire them again!
Lewis & Abby, St Margarets

 

We've just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to say a massive thank you for being, quite simply, fantastic. We've had so many comments on our return and one of the overriding themes is that of a packed dance floor from the first dance, which was sung beautifully, to the last dance. You made our day perfect and what a party.

Thank you for giving everybody blisters from the non-stop dancing.

Once again thanks for making it unforgettable.
Matt & Sarah, Hampshire

 

Just wanted to say thanks for a great gig at our wedding. Everybody loved you and I think you got the set list just right! Please pass our thanks on to all the band.

Thanks again,
Roy, London

 

Annie was brilliant. She was incredibly proactive in getting in touch and sorting out the arrangements for the event. She was always very friendly and helpful
and made everything go very smoothly.
Eleanor, Gosport

 

The initial information that was provided had everything we needed to know. Annie was easy to reach by phone or email and was quick to tie up any loose ends I might have had and made the process extremely smooth. Will definitely use Happening Entertainment again.
Kevin, Surrey

 

The service we received was first rate. Replies to emails we sent were very prompt and the agent (Annie) was obliging in every way. I cannot speak highly enough of the service offered.
Zoe and Andy, Norwich

 

Excellent from the start – fulfilled the brief to get everyone up and dancing! Seem to love what they do and clearly know how to put on a fantastic night’s entertainment. Awesome repertoire. Slick, professional, talented, energetic, fun, friendly...
British Academy of Managers

 

Annie was exceedingly helpful and I was happy to trust her to do the organising, which made my life a lot easier!
A truly fantastic band which guests are still congratulating us on.

Azure  did a fabulous job on the night and we are still getting people coming up to us saying how great the band was. The night flew by and I wish I could remember more, but I certainly remember dancing practically non-stop and our first dance was a special moment, so a particular thanks to the band for learning our song.

Thanks again Annie, I will not hesitate to recommend you and Azure in the future.
Karen, London

 

The service provided was excellent throughout the booking, and Annie was very helpful at all times.
The band were great, they played a good range of songs. I wasn’t there to greet them or when they finished, but the feedback from the wedding guests was they were excellent.

I would definitely use Happening Entertainment and Azure again and would recommend them to friends!
Rob & Lisa, Gloucester

 

What can i say, the band were fantastic!  I danced from the moment they started playing right up until the very end.  They were a lovely bunch of guys, really nice and friendly and their performance was excellent!  Later in the evening they pulled myself and the bridesmaids up on stage as backing singers for one song and then pulled my husband and his friends up to do a number.  It was brilliant!  We had so much fun and they really made the night.  I can't even imagine what it would have been like without them.  All our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and all raved about how good they were.

I honestly cannot thank you enough for all of your help at such short notice. There is not one thing i can fault you on.  With your help and the bands performance our evening reception was perfect!

I will certainly recommend Happening Entertainment and The Mutz  to everyone for any type of event.
Jenny, Kent

 

A great big thank you to Annie for always being there on the phone when I had any worries or doubts and for always finding a way to yes.

After everyone commented on the dress and the bridesmaids and how lovely everyone looked, the next thing everyone asked about was the band and how amazing they were! I can honestly say that you made the day. We've recently watched the video and we couldn't believe how packed the dance floor was all night. People were literally there from start to finish and didn't even stop for food!! The music was fab and the singing even better. On a personal note I also need to say thank you for being so helpful, letting us play our own music while you had a break, and accomodating our dancer and singer. The band were so professional the whole way through and I didn't have to worry about anything.  

You truly made our day special and unforgettable and you were worth every penny. I would absolutely recommend you to anyone. I can't express my thanks enough, and as my husband is Irish I'd say all the west coast of Ireland is still talking about you!

Thank you a million times

Thanks again for all your help. I used to help out at a Voice Over agency owned by a friend, and the ethos was to just take over someone's problem and solve it. That's exactly what I felt you have done for us - keep up the good work and I look forward to recommending you and hopefully working with you again.

Very best wishes
Christina, London

 

We would just like to write a note to ask you to say a big thank you to Radioplay. They were very professional and certainly helped to make it one of the happiest days of our lives. 

Thanks once again.
Jules and Jules, Lancs

 

I found Happening Entertainment on the internet and liked the look of "Azure" and emailed for more information.  The staff at Happening got back to me immediately and offered help and advice and answered all of my questions by return email or phone call.
 
I booked Azure and a pianist for my wedding ceremony and reception and was completely delighted with their performances.  The pianist played my choice of music for my entrance, he arrived in plenty of time and set up to play outdoors (the ceremony was outside) with no fuss or bother and then played beautifully and sensitively, entertaining my guests as they arrived and then playing before and during our wedding ceremony.
 
Azure arrived early for the evening reception, and set up to play in line with the timings and constraints of the venue.  They then played brilliantly, entertaining my guests and even tempting my 93 year old grandfather onto to dance floor!  Their performance and conduct throughout were impeccable.  The boys are great musicians; their professionalism and friendliness really added to my enjoyment of my wedding day.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them or booking them again.
 
Many thanks,
Rebecca, London

 

Brilliant – everyone had a great time & we’ve had a lot of comments since the wedding about how good the band were! Really co-operative &  friendly – and did a fantastic job.
Lynsey, West Sussex

 

Azure played at my wedding in August and were great fun – they played all the right stuff to get guests of all ages up and dancing. Loads of my guests were really impressed with them, their professionalism the quality of their playing/singing and just how friendly and fun they were .

I am so pleased we booked Azure, and Annie at Happening Entertainment was really helpful with any queries I had.

Am not planning to get married again, but would definitely consider using Happening Entertainment and Azure again.
Sue, Kent

 

We had a really lovely day and everyone loved the band!  I had tons of people ask me afterwards where I had found them.  They played a really good set of songs and got everyone up and dancing, it was great fun!

Thank you for all of your help over the past few months.
Amber, London

 

What can I say - Azure were just brilliant at my daughters wedding on Saturday night at Shendish Manor. All of our guests could not stop singing their praises - even the next morning at breakfast everyone was commenting on how good they were!!

I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a good party.  They kept everyone entertained all night and the dance floor packed - even getting some of the guests to participate and sing along!

Please say a big thank you from all of us to all the members of the band.
Jane, Hertfordshire

 

Wonderful – thank you! x
Vari & Mike, Hertfordshire



Dear Chris and Happening Entertainment,

Well, we’re back from honeymoon. It was WONDERFUL but alas, it’s all over and now we’re not quite sure what to do with ourselves! We just want to thank you for all your hard work in sorting out our problems with the venue. If it wasn’t for you guys we’d probably have been arrested for dangerous dummy spitting – it would have all ended in tears, I’m sure!

Thanks again for looking after us so well – your service was well beyond our expectations and we can never thank you enough for helping us on our big day.

Warmest wishes,

Susannah and James, London
P.S. Expect a few future bookings from our friends!

 

I just wanted to say that we all had a most enjoyable time and it is down to your band. All in all it was a wonderful day but your professionalism from start to finish put my own and my wife’s minds at rest. The reassurance you gave us helped us enjoy our daughter’s wedding so much more.
Mr and Mrs Richards, Wiltshire

 

They were brilliant and very helpful all evening...
Penny, London

 

Guys, we couldn’t have picked a better band for our Christmas bash if we’d tried, you really set the place alight! So sorry I couldn’t be there at the end but I was ‘danced out’ and my husband had to take me home. Thanks again for all of your help in organising the event too, it was a great weight off my mind.

See you next year I hope.

Joanna, Kent

 

Annie was exceptionally professional and a joy to work with. As an event planner, I was so happy that she took initiative to contact the venue ahead of the event. She was fast with email and always responded to my questions promptly and went above and beyond with her answers. 

The band too was very professional. I was so pleased that I really didn’t have to look after the band at all – Annie and the band members took care of everything and I really didn’t have to worry at all. Thank you!
Helen, London

 

Thank you so much for visiting us all the way out in the sticks! We really had a blast and are still getting over all the dancing! We know there won’t be a next time (for us) but maybe we’ll see you at our friends’ weddings next year. You’re top of the list!

By the way, we were especially blown away by 'Blame it on the Boogie', we’ve never heard anything like it! Better than the original!
Richard and Debra, Sussex

 

Is there anything you can’t play? When we requested Can’t Take My Eyes Off You in the style of Oasis we were only joking but you managed to pull it off brilliantly! Thank you so much for all your hard work, I consider us lucky to have got you at our function. Some of the other staff are getting married and wondered if you can do their weddings so I’ve given them your number. We’ll let you know when the date is set for next year’s event. 

Thank you all again for everything.
David, Windsor

 

When you said you could do a 60th birthday celebration in a 60s vein I have to admit I didn’t quite believe you, my girl! On behalf of myself, and my guests, I have to say you did us proud. It was a fantastic performance all round and the night itself took us all right back to our youth. We haven’t had such a great time in years. Who says nostalgia isn’t what it used to be? See you at my 70th!
J.P Stanford, Oxfordshire

 

Many guests commented on how good Threepio were and asked where we heard about them!
Jane, Sussex

 

Just a quick note to say thank you so much, especially to Chris for all his help leading up to and making our wedding the fantastic day that it was. We had an absolute blast in the evening and it was great to see everyone letting their hair down after such a great day. Hope you don’t mind but we’ve given your number to a few friends of ours who want a band for weddings next year.

Look forward to seeing you again.
Jackie and Mike, Norfolk

 

I just wanted to write and say how fantastic Azure were at our wedding on 28th August in Suffolk.  They were very professional and polite but most importantly they had everyone on the dance floor, including my Mum which is the first time in my entire life that I've ever seen her dance so that just made my day!

As you know, we'd decided against a band until just 4 weeks before the big day and I have to confess that I was doubting that we'd be able to find anything suitable in time but the band were absolutely perfect so could you please pass on a huge thank you to them for us? And to you, of course, for being so quick to help us out. It really made our day!

With very best wishes,
Thomas, Suffolk

 

The staff at Happening Entertainment were very friendly & provided a helpful service, and were always available to answer questions – very reassuring!

The band was brilliant – everyone had a great time & we’ve had a lot of comments since the wedding about how good the band were! Really co-operative &  friendly – and did a fantastic job.
Alex, Hampshire

 

I had to write to thank you after you came to see me to sort out the retirement party, I feel like we’re old friends. It’s been lovely dealing with you these past weeks and I rather miss having something to organise. My nephew is turning 50 next year, I don’t like him much but I might just throw him a party! Do drop in for a cup of tea if you are in the area. It’d be lovely to see you all again.

God bless.
Margaret, Berkshire

 

Being able to choose what we wanted from the repertoire you sent us was brilliant and you had all my favourites. Your singer was really funny (and quite attractive!). All in all we had a brilliant time and will be recommending you to everyone we know who needs a band in the future. Great value for a highly entertaining show.
Jenny, Warwickshire

 

Sorry we got the name of the band wrong at the wedding when we announced you but your response to it was hilarious and I still have a chuckle about it when I think about it! We all had such a laugh. Your singer getting in amongst us and getting us all to sing along was a great touch and I’ll never sing Mustang Sally any better than I did that night! 

Thank you so much, hopefully see you again soon.
Mike and Jenny, Oxford

 

Thank you so much for all you help you gave us in sorting out the band for our wedding.  I’m sure you’ve heard it all before but they were absolutely brilliant and we couldn’t have asked for any more, please pass on out thanks.  We’ll see how things go down under but if the local bands aren’t up to it you might get a call from us around Christmas time!
Laura and Josh, Surrey

 

Thank you for a fantastic performance at Berrydown Barn on 16th August. You really made the night! We've had so much fantastic feedback, it was fantastic.

Thanks again,
Sam & Alex, Southampton, Hampshire

 

Hi guys – Just wanted to say that we couldn’t have asked for a better band than Azure for our special day. We wanted a band that was as upbeat as we were at the time and you truly provided that. Thanks so much. We’ve recommended you to all of our friends too so may see you sooner than we think!
Leslie, Chester
