What people say Help

  • The band played jazz while we had dinner with just the guitar and the the singer. Her voice was amazing and perfect for the mood we wanted to set. The full 4-piece joined later and again they were excellent. The lead singer was especially good with the young kids which was a big bonus. A girl called Sue exceeded our expectations, they were prompt, organised and professional!

    Denise & Fabian, Wedding at Belair House in Dulwich, August 2017
  • This band is absolutely fantastic, great sound got the party going. Can't wait to have them again and again. Thank you so much for making our party one to remember.

    Mark, 21st birthday party in Etchingham, Sussex, September 2017
  • A Girl Called Sue are an excellent party band. They interacted well with their audience and got everybody up and dancing. The jazz set whilst we ate was also very pleasant. Would highly recommend!

    Tracy, 50th birthday party in Surrey, September 2017
  • Both the agency and the band were efficient and professional. The band were excellent and were lovely people to work with. Both their sets, the mellow jazz and the lively dance set were perfect for our event and they made it very successful!

    Karen, Corporate event at Layer Marney Tower, Essex, June 2017
  • A Girl Called Sue were absolutely phenomenal, I couldn't have dreamed of having a such an amazing and entertaining band. They were really involved and sounded absolutely fantastic! Would definitely book again for any other event!

    Mia, Wedding at Cantley House Hotel, Wokingham, June 2017
  • I just wanted to say how wonderful A Girl Called Sue, were at our event on Saturday 17th June. They are fantastic musicians and also incredibly nice people who were very accommodating about the lack of space. All of our guests enjoyed their music, both their slow jazz and the dance set. I would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again in the future, they really made our event a success.

    Karen, Private Event, Essex, June 2017
  • A girl called Sue were an amazing wedding band and had our guests dancing and singing all night. The feedback has been really good and we would recommend them again and again!!

    Chris, Wedding at Three Choirs Vineyard, Hampshire, May 2017
  • The band arrived on time and were set up in plenty of time, they sounded great and even learnt our first dance song. They really were flexible and went with the evening, we had a slightly longer break than planned as our guests were getting stuck into a huge cheeseboard and the band were fine with that. They interacted with guests and really got the dance floor filled!

    Hayleigh, Wedding, the Gallivant, April 2017
  • A Girl Called Sue were absolutely awesome - we loved every minute and the dancefloor was never empty!

    Charlotte, Wedding, London, August 2016
  • I just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had at our birthday party on Saturday night with the band, 'A Girl Called Sue'. From start to finish they were brilliant to deal with. In the lead up to the party I had a call from the band to discuss any songs that we would particularly like or type of music we enjoyed listening and dancing to. They turned up on time, were discreet in setting up, played brilliantly all night (including a fantastic dinner jazz set) and were a huge hit with our party goers and us. I would not hesitate to book them again and I would certainly recommend them to anyone wanting a live band that can perform for all age groups and tastes in music. Thank you very much indeed.

    Louise & Ed, Birthday Party, Essex, September 2016
  • We LOVED A Girl Called Sue and would highly recommend them for any wedding/event. Their energy was amazing they got everyone up dancing even our normally very serious Grandma. They were so accommodating - setting up really quietly during our meal as the wedding was all in one place, to the extent that we didn't even notice them. They did our first dance at quite late notice and were really flexible on set timings as we had a fair few requests for timings etc. They were lovely guys to liaise with and were a huge part of our special day. Everyone commented on how great they were,they're fab value for money and we would have them play again in a heartbeat!

    Yasmin, Wedding, Essex, August 2016
  • Thanks so much to you and the band you were so fun and honoured our requests perfectly! Thank you for being so quiet in the set up too! Everyone loved you - and said how you got everyone up dancing. Thank you so so much.

    Yasmin & Alex, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • The band played dinner jazz music at the start, and then stepped up the tempo for more lively Soul and R&B style later on. The vocalist was particularly talented, and interaction with the audience added to the atmosphere and contributed to a very enjoyable evening. Be sure to book the keyboard player as well as guitar bass drums and vocals. They played for quite a long duration also. The musicians played very well and had a great stage presence. I would recommend 'A Girl Called Sue' whole-heartedly.

    Paul, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • Just a note to thank 'A Girl Called Sue' for their stunning ccperformance at our wedding on 16th July, great music, both dinner jazz and upbeat r&b/soul later and DJ. 'Gimme some lovin' was my favourite track. The band added a lot of atmosphere to the event and interacted well with the guests. The booking process was very professional and efficient also. Advise that you book keyboards as well as 2 guitars vocalist and drums.

    Paul & Gina, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • My wife and I just wanted to write a quick note to thank "A Girl Called Sue" for performing at our wedding. We were impressed with how professional they were throughout and their attention to detail. They were very flexible and were happy to do one set of 60s/Motown songs to get all the older generation on the dance floor, before finishing with an 80s-present day set which was well received by all our friends in their 20s! We received so many compliments on the band and they filled the dance floor! We also loved their selection of songs for the DJ set afterwards and guests were reluctant to leave the dance floor once the music had stopped at midnight! A lot of the guests were very muscial themselves, some even members of other function bands and all were very impressed with the musicianship of the band, particularly the saxophonist and the lead singer. We would not hesitate to recommend a Girl Called Sue for any wedding or party!

    Laurie & Vicky, Wedding, Dorset, July 2016
  • Just to say how fantastic the band were at our private party on Saturday. From our first contact they couldn’t have been more helpful and efficient. They were set up and sound checked well in advance. During the party they kept everyone dancing all night. Their sound was just fantastic and the singers were brilliant. They also managed the playlist between their sets and even included our my daughters special requests for one direction and 5 S0S! All our friends have commented on how brilliant the band was and I would happily recommend them.

    Lynn, Private party, Surrey, July 2016
  • Extremely satisfied! The band were fantastic and played the perfect mix of songs.

    Julie, Corporate event, Southampton, November 2015
  • We loved A Girl Called Sue! The band were very interactive and encouraged the guests to be involved. They played songs from across the eras and many of my parents' favourite songs.

    Natalie, Private Party, Kent, September 2015
  • I just wanted to say how fabulous A Girl Called Sue were at our wedding on Saturday! Everyone commented on what a great band they were and how diverse their repertoire was. They really got the crowd going and had us all dancing until the end of the night. They made room for our special requests and nothing was too much trouble, we really couldn't have asked for a better band! Thanks for your organisation and for all your help in the lead up! 100% satisfied with A Girl Called Sue!

    Rachel, Wedding, London, July 2015
  • We booked 'A Girl Called Sue' for our wedding and we were very satisfied with the act! The band exceeded our expectations and played a great playlist which suited our guests (a real mix of old and young!) The dance floor was always busy. Everyone has commented on how cool the guys were! - 10/10

    Claire, Wedding, Kent, July 2015
  • A Girl Called Sue played at our wedding and they were absolutely brilliant! They were fantastic - sounded brilliant, a great selection of songs and kept everyone dancing all night long. Couldn't have asked for more! The dance floor was packed all night and we had loads of people saying how amazing they were. Particularly loved the lead singer's voice (and sparkly skirt!) Thank you so much for being there, you absolutely made the evening for us.

    Amy, Wedding, New Forest, June 2015
  • We wanted to drop you a line to stay how impressed we were with A Girl Called Sue. The band performed in such a professional way and I have received so much positive feedback from guests.

    My family were especially grateful for how hard the band performed under the difficult circumstances of a venue-noise-cut out! It touched my heart to see the drummer gently tapping with his hands, and the lead singer soft singing into the mic to try and stay within the ridiculously low sound limit.

    We had quite a few musicians in the audience & every one of them complimented on how well AGCS handled the noise issue, and still managed to create a fantastic atmosphere with their music. We can't thank you enough!

    Dotty & Nick Geller, Wedding, Barley, June 2015
  • The band were utterly superb. I thought I was taking a risk by booking a band based solely on what was on your website and not having heard them or had a personal recommendation but it turns out there was no risk involved at all.

    They were very professional and did their best to be flexible and work within the constraints of the venue. A Girl Called Sue were one of the evening's highlights and many people were talking about how good they were for some time after the event - including to those who weren't there.

    I would not hesitate to book them again! My only regret is that the venue were not able to accommodate the full 8-piece line-up.

    Daniel, Birthday Party, London, May 2015
  • We booked A Girl Called Sue for our Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties. They played to over 1000 people throughout the run and were very adaptable each time depending on the audience. They always got the party going, they had a good interaction with the customers and a great mix of songs, the dance floor was always full. We had a lot of positive feedback from our customers especially how good the jazz set was during dinner. We wouldn’t hesitate to book them again for further events.

    Fiona, Corporate events, Watford, December 2014
  • A Girl Called Sue were fantastic. They had a great reaction from our guests and we only heard very positive feedback, saying how good they were. The dancefloor was full all the time they were playing!

    Jonathan, Private Party, Surrey, October 2014
  • Firstly, we would like to say thanks to all at Function Central for organising the band for our wedding on 7th October. The booking process was faultless and everything ran smoothly on the day.

    We would very much like to pass on our thanks to A Girl Called Sue who made our wedding reception go with a swing from the first note of the jazz set to the closing number at the end of the evening. The band were great fun, provided an entertaining mix of songs and had people on the dance floor throughout. We would not hesitate to recommend them, and we would book them again without hesitation.

    Many thanks for making our wedding day complete.

    Joanne & Steve, Wedding, Reading, October 2014
  • We booked A Girl Called Sue for our wedding a few weeks ago and wanted to say a huge thank you! The band were great and the dance floor was packed. We would absolutely recommend to others! Thanks again guys x

  • I was extremely satisfied with the band and everyone at the party thought they were superb.

    Richard, Private Event, Essex, September 2014

    Ellie, Wedding, Wiltshire, August 2014
  • A Girl Called Sue were exactly what we were hoping for and we loved everything they did. It was a great pleasure to have them. The music was fabulous, the dance floor was very busy and personally we loved the trumpet and sax we requested, they were wonderful!

    Anonymous, Private Party, Northamptonshire, September 2014
  • From booking to the actual event it ran very smoothly. The band themselves were fantastic. They played a jazz set to start which was lovely to get the evening started. This was followed by 3 sets of great live music that got everyone up and dancing. The band were all really nice, they really helped to make our day a very special one!!

    Jonathan, Wedding, London, August 2014
  • I just wanted to pass on my thanks to Function Central for helping us organise A Girl Called Sue to play at our wedding party on Saturday night. They were fabulous, we could not have been happier. Everyone commented on how talented they were and we were truly impressed with their professionalism.

    Amy, Wedding, Norfolk, August 2014
  • Thank you very much for organising the band for our party. The band was just fabulous. The group was so nice, they made the party alive, every one enjoyed the party. Once again a big, big, big thank you.

    Kumkum, Party, Warwickshire, August 2014
  • A Girl Called Sue performed at our Son's wedding last Saturday. They did an outstanding job for us and we received lots of compliments from our guests. Personally I loved the music and the professionalism of the band members. They were a major part of our evening celebrations and it was so important that they did a good job for us, well they didn't, they did a superb and outstanding job! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone, and to recommend Function Central who made the booking of the band so easy. So, again, thank you so much and all the best for the future.

    Robin, Wedding, Hampshire, August 2014
  • A HUGE thank you to all of the band members for a fantastic performance at our wedding. The tracks were great and I know that our guests especially loved the lead singer's ad-libbing and including our names in the lyrics! We received lots of comments about what a great band you were and the dance floor was busy all night. THANK YOU!! From Amanda & Adam

    Amanda & Adam, Wedding, Surrey, July 2014
  • An absolutely MASSIVE thank you to A Girl Called Sue for the fantastic music at our wedding reception at the Mansion, Port Lympne on 24th May 2014. You guys were absolutely brilliant and exactly what we had been looking for!

    The evening jazz set was perfect to set the mood during the evening drinks reception. The two live sets later in the evening were fantastic and had everyone up and dancing - no matter how old or young! And the DJ sets kept the party going all evening.

    The mix of music and performances were just brilliant and so many of our guests commented on how great you all were. You really made the evening - thank you all so much for being part of our wedding day!

They were all friendly, well mannered and so lovely to have them at our wedding. Highly recommend them to anyone who needs a good fun time for their party or event and to make it sound great.

    Vishal, Wedding, Surrey, May 2014

    The DJ was great as well and played lots of the songs we'd requested!!

    Rosanna, Wedding, Lowe Froyle, April 2014

    Sharon, Corporate event, Oxfordshire, December 2013

    James & Jo, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, September 2013
  • A Girl Called Sue were fantastic at my 50th Party Bash. All my guests enjoyed themselves and gave positive feedback, some saying they would recommend them for other events.

    They got the mood of the evening well and adjusted the music they were playing accordingly. I could not recommend them enough - would definitely use them again.

    Carol, Wedding, Kent, September 2013
  • We are just about returning to normality now after the Wedding on Saturday, and Mark and Missy are off on their honeymoon. Anyway, I just wanted to say how great the band were. They really got the crowd going, and were also incredibly friendly, hugely helpful in setting up, with mics, speeches etc. So, many thanks all round! We wouldn't hesitate to book them again.

    Ian, Wedding, Bedfordshire, September 2013
  • Thanks for a fantastic evening of live and entertaining music at Peter Collins 50th party on Saturday night! You managed to get the whole party to dance xx

    Julia, Wedding, Surrey, August 2013
  • We were extremely satisfied! The band got in contact 3 weeks before the date as expected and were very friendly and helpful and made it very easy to organise the event. The band played 3x 40min sets and were amazing and had everyone up on the dance floor partying away. People were actually rushing out between sets for food and drinks, making sure they were back in time for the start of the next session!

    Sam, Wedding, Essex, August 2013
  • I'd just like to say that we were very happy with the band's role in our wedding celebrations. They were on time, friendly, played and sang a great selection - just the sort of thing that we wanted - and their sets were much enjoyed by our guests. What more could one ask? I would have no hesitation in recommending them, and re-booking them if the occasion arises!

    Jonathan, Wedding, Hampshire, June 2013
  • They were great, very efficient, turned up on time, worked around us and our guests, and delivered some great music for us all to dance the night away too!

    Jonathon, Wedding, Somerset, June 2013

Also, the band learn't a family favorite especially for our party, "A ring of fire" which we all loved. We are hoping they are still playing together come our 10th wedding anniversary!!

    Gareth, Wedding Party, Ilford, June 2013

    Paul, Wedding, Herts, April 2013
  • A Girl Called Sue far exceeded our expectations! The music was brilliant, the combination of jazz and popular music ensured all our guests were catered for and they really knew how to get our guests involved and up and dancing. There was no moment when the dance floor was empty! The band looked great and sounded brilliant and we have received so many compliments, we lost count of the number of times people asked us about where we had found such a talented band. Thank you for providing the perfect music and entertainment to make our wedding reception truly special.

    Jocelyn, Wedding, Richmond, November 2012
  • We were really happy with their punctuation and service. We had some really positive comments from guests and everyone was up dancing. We thought the performance was excellent and loved the atmosphere they created.

    Laura , Wedding, Christchurch, September 2012
  • I hadn't even realised the band had arrived - they were so quiet setting up. Normally it takes a while for the dance floor to fill up but seriously from the moment they started the dance floor was busy and everyone raved about them. They were fantastic. They also performed an excellent acoustic version of our first dance song which was exactly what we wanted. I will be sure to recommend the band and already have! I know one person has booked them after my recommendation already!

    Katy, Wedding, Sussex, September 2012
  • A Girl Called Sue were the perfect choice of live band for our wedding day! Countless guests commented on the stunning voice of the lead singer and the wonderful atmosphere the band created from start to finish. They played a wide range of songs throughout the evening which catered for all of our guests needs, they were great at sensing the mood on the dance floor and selecting the perfect tunes to accompany it. We couldn't have dreamed of a better band and can now just re-live the wonderful memories they helped to create. We can't recommend them enough.

    Gemma, Wedding, Surrey, July 2012
  • We thought the band (with extra saxophonist) were excellent. They were very amenable to our requests and performed each song brilliantly. The jazz sections in between were equally brilliant. We had many guests comment on how good they were and ask us where we found them.

    Lisa, Wedding, Kent, July 2012
  • Very happy - band fitted in around our needs, which we changed at the last minute! Great vocals. Everybody commented on the great atmosphere they provided.

    SJ, Wedding, Warwickshire, June 2012
  • 100% satisfied - A Girl Called Sue were amazing and made the evening! They were punctual, well presented, very friendly and professional and above all got everyone dancing! The music was absolutely brilliant and could not have wished for more. Many thanks for such a superb service a brilliant band and would recommend for any wedding. 5 stars!

    Tim, Wedding, Wiltshire, June 2012
  • Just a quick thank you for allowing me to take over on keys for a couple of songs last Saturday night at the Wedding gig in Suffolk: I really enjoyed that and it made it so special. The band were truly awesome and provided a fantastic evening's entertainment and dancing, and had some great sounds, solo breaks and jazz/fusion/rock lines during both the evening sets and the dinner! Thanks again Stu, and see you perhaps in the future?

    Mark, Wedding, Suffolk, June 2012
  • Everything went really well on the night and Natasha was brilliant, I just wanted to thank you and the band for the wonderful sets that you played last weekend. It was a really great day and so many of the guests commented on the band and we were so touched that so many people stayed right to the end!

    Richard, Wedding, June 2012
  • Please pass on our thanks to band 'A girl called Sue". They were amazing. At one point I was outside the marquee and I thought it was music from the stereo between playing but it was the band they was so good. We danced till our feet were sore, everyone said how wonderful they were. So professional and just fitted in with us. Please thank them for making Gerry's 40th so special.

    Gerry & Tash, 40th Birthday Party, June 2012
  • A fantastic night without a shadow of a doubt! We had toyed with the idea of booking a DJ, but we had guests who had flown in from across the world, and so providing them with a live band was the least that we could offer for their generosity. We were so relieved that we had a live band afterwards. The band also drew together a number of fairly discrete groups of friends into a great group all-together. I couldn't fault the band, and the guests absolutely loved it!

    Joanne, Wedding, Surrey, June 2012
  • We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the band for making our day so special.

    What can I say...you were absolutely amazing and blew us away...we knew you'd be good from listening to you online but didn’t realised you'd be that good. Everyone hasn't stopped talking about how great the band was and that they couldn't get off the dance floor because the songs were too good. I know I couldn't...you really did blow us away and were far better than we could imagine. You really did make the night and we feel so lucky to have had you play at our wedding.

    You guys are so talented and we are so happy/ glad that we found you and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

    Jodie & Gavin, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, May 2012
  • We were completely satisfied with A Girl Called Sue. We took a chance as we had only heard their demos online, but that chance paid off. We are still now (3 months later) receiving positive comments regarding the band, in fact everyone is 'raving' about them. All members of the band were very professional and I didn't even know they had arrived and set up. The jazz duo during our wedding breakfast were a lovely touch too - just right. We cannot praise them enough.

    Nadine, May 2012, Kent, May 2012
  • Thank you A Girl Called Sue for a fantastic evening, you made the evening an occasion to remember. Always professional, but very friendly and approachable too. A good mix of songs to suit the wide age range of guests, you had them all up dancing! Well done, we would recommend you wholeheartedly.

    Kathy and Vic, Wedding, London, May 2012
  • I realised to my embarrassment that I ran out of time at my wedding a couple of weeks ago to say thank you to the band. I would be really grateful if you could pass my thanks on to them. They did a fantastic job, as the busy dancefloor showed I think, and it was so helpful to have them there, set up and ready when we arrived at the reception. Thanks to you as well for your excellent suggestions as to the first dance, it really was very helpful indeed.

    Alexandra, Wedding, April 2012
  • I just want to thank you for the amazing music at Amy & Matt's wedding last Saturday. All very professional and excellent. Hope our paths cross again in the future.

    Mike, Wedding, Lincolnshire, April 2012
  • Wow, A Girl Called Sue were fantastic. I booked them for my Mum’s 70th birthday party, for an audience of 75 people from 5 to 80 years. Tasha, the singer, got everyone up and dancing to a broad range of songs to suite every taste. She had a great voice. The highlight was letting my son Adam play drums as my Mum has never heard/seen him play before and he's pretty good.

    Booking with Function Central was straightforward and paying the deposit was easy. It was good to be able to talk to you about my requirements and to have your reassurance that I had chosen the right band for my event.

    About ten days before the party the band called me to discuss any requests and to get some background details. He was very calming too as I was starting to get nervous about all the plans I had made. On the night we decided on a running order around eating, chatting and cake cutting. The band played some gentle jazz to provide some background music while everyone caught up with family news and then the party really started. Throughout, the band were friendly, relaxed yet professional and courteous. I would definitely use Function Central and A Girl Called Sue again.

    Magaret, 70th Birthday Party, March 2012
  • Just a note to let you know that A Girl Called Sue were excellent on Saturday night, very accommodating and very anxious to please. The music went on until midnight with most people on the dance floor. I have had a couple of people ask me for your contact details which I have now given them and hopefully you will be able to accommodate them as you did us. Once again thank you very much the band enhanced the whole party during the night.

    Leonard, Golden Wedding, January 2012
  • My wife and I would like to thank you and the band members for a wonderful musical New Years Eve.

    The wedding went wonderfully and your live music at the Reception was truly fantastic. Large numbers of our guests told us how much they enjoyed themselves - I really feel you made it an excellent New Years' celebration. Everyone was friendly, helpful, flexible and gave a truly superb and professional performance. We really appreciated your fabulous rendition of our first dance "Son of a Preacher Man" as well as the Auld Lang Syne at Midnight. The dinner jazz was perfect, and really helped get everyone in a party mood before your main performances. The DJ’ing in between sets was seamless with brilliant song choices, and allowed everyone to mix it up a bit with requests. Testament to your success was how we danced all night, as did our guests aged 5 to 80! Thank you for making our wedding such fun for everyone. We would book you again!!!

    Tom and Cara, Wedding, December 2011
  • I wanted to drop you a line to say thank you all very much indeed for a truly superb performance on Saturday 13th August for our wedding! We were utterly blown away by your expertise, care and professionalism you showed and everyone has been raving about how good you were! We knew you would be good having listened to you on the Function Central website but we were staggered at exactly how good you were live!! Please send our love and appreciation to the band!! We shall definitely be hiring you guys again in the future (maybe next August for a little booze-up) and shall certainly be recommending you to all and sundry!

    Charles and Lou, Wedding, August 2011
  • The band did a great job, faultless - they created a great atmosphere and got everyone dancing the night away. The whole experience went smoothly, including the booking and planning set lists with the band leader. Many, many thanks to A Girl Called Sue for helping to make our wedding so special and so much fun!

    Klina, Wedding, August 2011
  • I recently organized a function and hired the band "A Girl Called Sue". The communication prior to the event was very good, leaving me confident about their arrival. As promised they all arrived in plenty of time to set up before our meal and I was able make final arrangements about how the timing of the evening was to progress. The bands performance was first class and they had the people up dancing from the start, which I know is normally very difficult but they did it and kept people involved and dancing all night. I have nothing but praise for this band especially as they catered for all kinds of musical tastes.

    Bill, Event, October 2011
  • A Girl Called Sue played at my 40th birthday party. They were fantastic, virtually everyone who thanked me for my party said the band were awesome. They really made my party, they played all the tracks I had requested and brought a great energy with them. I searched the internet for many bands, they sounded the best and they didn't disappoint live. They were also incredibly polite off stage when dealing with the business part of the night. I highly recommend hiring them for all your functions, you will be guaranteed a good night. I was satisfied with the level of service the agency provided.

    Shefali, Party, Oxford, September 2011
  • We just want to say a big thank you to 'A Girl Called Sue' for their performance at our wedding on the 27th August. Everything about our day was fabulous and they added to the whole event. The jazz set went down very well and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the whole set finding just the right balance of tunes to get people up dancing. Our only regret is that we didn't seem to get enough time to just listen to the music. We would love to hear the band play again and would be keen to hear if they are playing anywhere publicly. Thanks again.

    Sharon and Nigel, Wedding, Surrey, August 2011
  • Amie and I wanted to give some feedback on “A Girl Called Sue” who played at our wedding on the 20th August – perhaps you can put this on their page or something as a recommendation? We booked “ A Girl Called Sue” for our wedding on the 20th August in mid-Wales, primarily off the back of the reviews on this site and the sample tracks we listened to online. Looking back on the day, we are absolutely delighted with our decision and couldn’t have wished for a more professional band - they sounded fantastic and really got people up dancing with a wide variety of music to suite everyone. The Jazz set went down a treat in the late afternoon and we had so many comments from our guests on the quality of the band. Thank you so much for making such a contribution to our day and for being so friendly and easy to deal with in the run up. Jonny & Amie (San Francisco via Brecon).

    Jonny and Amie, Wedding , Brecon, August 2011
  • A Girl Called Sue were brilliant and excellent entertainment for our wedding. They were very well organised and polite and went to great lengths to learn a first dance song for us which they performed perfectly. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone for a wedding or special event. I was also very pleased with Function Central’s role in liaising with the band. We obviously made a few changes along the way and you always kept me informed the details. All in all we were very happy and it made our wedding very special so thank you!

    Chris, Wedding, Surrey, July 2011
  • I wanted to give you some feedback on this band who played at my daughter’s wedding on Saturday. They were extremely good and I would book them again without hesitation should the need arise. The Jazz set played at the beginning of the meal was exactly what I had wanted; unobtrusive and light background music which we all enjoyed. The subsequent dance music sets kept everyone on the dance floor from beginning to end. In addition their administration and helpfulness throughout in the planning and preparation of the music my daughter wanted was absolutely first class. They were thoughtful enough to call me early on the day of the wedding to confirm arrangements, arrived on time and set up without fuss. All my guests commented most favourably on the music. All-in-all they helped make the day a memorable one and I thank them for it.

    John, Wedding, Kent, June 2011
  • We had a superb evening on Monday and the band were fantastic. They went down really well with everyone and I particularly enjoyed the jazz set!

    Nico, Wedding, Berkshire, June 2011
  • What an excellent band! Our guests kept coming up to us all evening, saying how good you are!

    Jan, Wedding, Staffordshire, June 2011
  • Thank you for such a fantastic performance on Saturday night, we were absolutely delighted. The jazz was pitched perfectly, the ‘disco’ was just the right combination and lead singer had such a fantastic strong voice – pitch perfect and the bands ability to be flexible including letting one of our friends sing was one of the aspects that completely made the reception.

    Carl, Wedding, Farnham, June 2011
  • Absolutely awesome band, talented and very friendly. Our overall wedding was amazing and it was a sign of a good band that so many people were on the dance floor. I had a lot of people ask me on the wedding day where I sourced the band from.

    Sean, Wedding, Kent, April 2011
  • We hired A Girl Called Sue 7-piece band for our wedding and I can honestly say, that having a live band with a brass section was the best decision we made regarding the evening reception. Function Central were quick and efficient in the booking process and ensured that all of the details that we needed to supply were laid out from the very start and the booking process was so easy. The band were so pleasant to deal with both before the wedding and on the day, ensuring that we had everything we wanted in terms of music choices and timings. On the night, the band were punctual and so friendly and from the first note that they played, they set the atmosphere perfectly. I can honestly say that I have never seen so many of my friends and family on the dance floor for so long - and many I know never dance at any function! This is testament to the band who kept the evening swinging along at just the right pace. We have had so many comments from our guests on what an excellent band A Girl Called Sue were and so, so pleased with them for providing a wonderful evening to remember. Thank you so much to the band and we would certainly recommend them to anyone who wants a party or an event to remember.

    Penny, Wedding, Hants. April 2011
  • I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the amazing job you and your band did at our wedding. I had an amazing time and everyone said how brilliant the band were. I'm really sorry you had such a wait and that things over ran, I would have much preferred to be dancing the night away rather than eating and listening to speeches!

  • Thank you for providing us with such great entertainment for our wedding reception!! We have had excellent feedback about the band, both on the night and since.

    Amber, Wedding. Kent, March 2011
  • We hired the band for my wife's 40th birthday party. They were absolutely fantastic, they arrived when they said they would, they were really friendly and sounded amazing. They really got the party going, so a big thank you. I can't wait to be able to book them again.

    Mark, 40th Birthday Party, Sussex, July 2010
  • We thought they were absolutely fantastic and were impressed with the high level of musicianship. I am a musician myself and play the violin (often at weddings!), so music was a very important part of the day for me and I was delighted with the band. We have great memories of dancing the night away!

    Charlotte, Wedding, July 2010
  • We all thought you and your band were amazing. You were all so professional, arriving early in time for an easy set up & technical rehearsal which really put our minds at rest and then being so accommodating throughout. The whole party were thoroughly enjoying your music & we didn’t want you to go! We will definitely get you back as you left nothing for us to worry about & then were absolutely fabulous – Thank you so much!

    Kate, Sussex, March 2010
  • A Girl Called Sue were a great success for my 30th Birthday. The guests loved them and they sound amazing, full of energy and a brilliant set list. I would not hesitate in booking them again as they got everyone dancing and completely made the party! We had the 5 piece and delighted with them, you must book these guys now!

    Function Central were great to deal with. Friendly, efficient and I would recommend to anyone. I will definitely be using them the next time I need a band.

    Ian, 30th Birthday Party, Surrey, February 2010
  • We also booked ‘A Girl Called Sue’ through you, they too were completely professional and so very accommodating that they made the party really special. The band were friendly, really flexible with their remit and just so lovely to get along with – we were delighted! I will definitely keep coming back to you – it’s been really successful so far! Thank you.

    Karen, Corporate Event, London, December 2009
  • The band were amazing, We all loved you! Everyone commented on how good you were, and you had everyone dancing all night... Thank you for making our day so special.

    Annabel, Wedding, Surrey, November 2009
  • A Girl Called Sue were absolutely amazing at our wedding - everyone commented on the tasteful background music during our meal, and the evening music was simply outstanding. We would recommend them for any function!!
