What people say Help

  • We had Cerone come up and play our Wedding in the Lake District, we couldn't have had a better experience. The band contacted us a few weeks before the wedding and went through everything they needed and everything they could offer us, we discussed playlists, first dance, set times etc. The guys arrived during the speeches of the wedding and waited patiently for us to let them in and set up which they did quickly and quietly. The sound, musicianship and atmosphere was fantastic. The singer blew everyone away and the amount of comments we got on the band was unbelievable. I couldn't recommend them highly enough, thanks to Paul and all the guys!

    Chris, Wedding,Coniston, July 2016
  • They were fantastic! Very professional! They definitely got the dance floor pumping.

    Liz, Wedding,Macclesfield, September 2015
  • Cerone were totally brilliant, from beginning to end! Each song was polished and they were happy to include some special requests in their set. Cerone sounded even better than the recordings we'd first heard on the website, and they looked amazing too! So refreshing to have a female lead singer. Our guests thought that they were superb and there was dancing all evening. We've had dozens of friends getting in touch since, asking about the band and saying that they were the best wedding band they'd heard. We agree! Thanks for making our special day even better.

    Branwen, Wedding, Dolgellau, August 2015
  • When planning for our big day, The evening entertainment was very important to us and Cerone definitely did not disappoint! They were professional, helpful and accommodating, making time to learn a completely new song (that happened to be the groom's favourite) to add especially to there playlist for the evening. We would highly recommend Cerone, who played a fantastic selection of songs brilliantly to keep all of our wedding guests not wanting to leave the dancefloor from start to finish!

    Natalie, Wedding, Wales, August 2015
  • I just wanted to give some feedback as so many people spoke to me on the evening of the wedding and afterwards, saying how brilliant they thought the band were! Every song sounded like the original and the dancefloor was full all night long. They were so professional and pleasant. I booked them after they were recommended to me and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any function in the North West of England/Wales. Thank you for making the wedding evening so special!

    Sue, Wedding, Wirral, June 2015
  • Absolutely blown away. From start to finish they were incredible. Friendly, efficient and an absolute pleasure to have at our wedding. Would definitely hire again if we have another event. Could not have chosen better. Thank you so much.

    Laura, Wedding, Cheshire, December 2014
  • Cerone were absolutely amazing...they totally exceeded our expectations!

    Kate, Wedding, Northumberland, September 2014

    Gareth & Sara , Wedding, Kent, Summer 2014

    Jane , Birthday Party, East Midlands, Summer 2014
  • Cerone delivered a fantastic set which got the whole marquee up on their feet and dancing. They were really tight and their singer has an amazing voice. They really helped to make the evening come alive!

    James, Wedding, Liverpool, Summer 2014
  • Cerone were great, good communication with them prior to the event, and they included all my requests during the performance. They were very friendly but professional throughout listening to my concern over sound levels. They looked great and ensured that they delivered what I was expecting - nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend them as many of the party guests commented on their ability and the great voice of the lead singer (who happened to be standing in that night as the usual lead was ill). Wonderful performance by all and would certainly book them again.

    Jane, 50th Party, Kegworth, September, 2013
  • We couldn't be happier with the performance from Cerone at our wedding. The band performed 3 40 minute sets as I had requested. We requested 'Your Song' as our first dance and it was performed excellently. They went on to play 3 x 40 minute sets. This was a mix of music but really kept the guests on their feet dancing. They sounded amazing and had a really good energy. Lots of the guests commented afterwards on how good they are. I would definitely recommend them.

    Katy, Wedding, London, August 2013
  • Very satisfied. Before the event, they contacted us to confirm our preferences and to ask about how the day would be scheduled. They didn't leave any detail to chance, which was very reassuring. On the day, they were very prompt to arrive and didn't object when the timings overran and they had to wait around for the wedding breakfast to finish. The acoustic set they performed was exceptionally good, and it really showcased the singers voice. The sets proper went down really well with our guests and it was a shame they had to finish! All in all, we were extremely pleased with the band and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.

    Rob, Wedding, Ripon, March 2013
  • From first communicating with the band through until their last song, they were brilliant and very professional. Everything was seamless and the band was lovely. All of our guests praised the band and me and my husband really couldn't have asked for anything better. They had an amazing singer, and everything sounded great. They created a great atmosphere and got everyone on the dance floor. Really, really happy.

    Hannah, Wedding, Preston, August 2012
  • Cerone were excellent. They were very professional from start to finish. They played a really good range of music that suited all of our guests and everybody was up dancing for the whole time. We would recommend them to anyone who asked!

    Matt, Wedding, Neston, July 2012
  • I just want to pass on how thrilled we were with Cerone last night, they really made our reception ! Thanks so much.
