What people say Help

  • We loved Manhattan. They played a background set during desserts and coffees and then turned up the tempo for the rest of the night, everyone was up dancing and the band were really interactive!

    Claire, Corporate Event, Sheffield, September 2016
  • If you enjoy live music Manhattan is a must! The band is fantastic and they are all highly talented musicians who put their hearts and soul into it. A pleasure to watch and listen to, watch out for the amazing reggae version of Valerie!

    Nadine, Private Party, Bradford, September 2016
  • Thank you for an amazing night on Friday! Such an unexpected night with a wide selection of songs, loved them all especially Never Too Much Luther Vandross, had us dancing all night!

    Kelsey, Pub Event, York, August 2015
  • One of those nights that I wont forget for all the right reasons. Band were amazing, the music was great, all in all a fantastic night!

    Andrew, Private Party, Leeds January 2015
  • Just want to thank you guys for a FABULOUS!!! night last Friday. Loved your selection of songs from Luther Vandross to rocking it to Kings of Leon. So looking forward to seeing you again to dance the night away.

    Caroline, Private Party, Bradford, February 2014
  • I book bands every Friday night and had the privilege of booking this band for a gig at our local public house. The band exceeded all our expectations and in my opinion were one of the best bands we have had. They are talented musicians in their own right but together something very special happens. The night was a complete success and I had many people congratulating me on booking the band and how much they are looking forward to them returning. I booked the band again immediately the following morning, which is something I don't ordinarily do. The band did amazing covers of well loved songs and at one point it seemed like the whole pub was up singing and dancing! As well as the fabulous music the band bring such a great vibe with them. It is without hesitation that I would wholeheartedly recommend this band and if I were having a private party of any description it would be this band I would book.

    Nicola, Pub event, Bradford, January 2014
  • Just want to say a massive thank you for all you did to make our wedding day extra special. The professionalism of the band was amazing from start to finish. We had looked at a few wedding bands in the run up to the wedding and I can safely say you smashed them out of the park. People are still talking about “That band” so extra thanks there! Also a special thank you to you for taking on our request for our first dance song and executing it perfectly! I think the Script would have been proud! All the best for the future and again THANK YOU!

    Faye, Wedding, Yorkshire, May 2012
  • With vocals that manage to tingle the hairs on the back of your neck and excellent musicianship, Manhattan don't fail to impress. From the uplifting groovy tunes to the atmospheric ambient sounds at the other, Manhattan manage to leave a lasting impression. With their own unique takes on classics such as Oasis' 'Wonderwall' to James Brown's 'Get Up', it is clear to see the sheer talent this band possess. Manhattan is definitely a crowd pleaser and an excellently put together band. I highly recommend this band to anybody who enjoys real, pure talent as well as being able to dance the night away.

    Sarah, Wedding, Leeds, May 2012
  • The band excellently entertained and were highly professional and incredibly versatile. They played at our daughter's wedding: firstly a set of acoustic jazz (no vocals) during the reception drinks as a background, and in the evening they really got the party started. They played for the newly married couple's first dance and then went for it, starting with James Brown's 'I Feel Good', and later, their version of Daft Punk 'Get Lucky' was completely brilliant. They got everyone up dancing straight away (not that they needed much encouragement to be fair) and the floor was full right up to the end when we didn't want them to stop playing!
    The band members were lovely - they arrived punctually, were polite and attentive and willingly complied with the venue's requests in relation to decibel level and finishing time. We could not have wished for a better band to play on a very special day in all our lives. We would give them the highest recommendation and send them all our warmest thanks.

    Amanda, Wedding, Suffolk, July 2014
  • Just wanted to say now we're settling down after our honeymoon and the mayhem that we were delighted with you and the group at our wedding. All the guests thought you were all brilliant and the way you get the crowd motivated was fantastic. Keep up the energy and stay cool, unlike my dancing.....

    James, Wedding, Staffordshire, August 2014
  • Thanks again for performing at our wedding! I'm so happy we managed to get you guys-we really couldn't have asked for a better band and one more perfect for us!Please thank the rest of the band, you guys made our night. We had the most amazing wedding and couldn't have hoped for a better end to the day! Everyone was asking who you were and where we found you. One friend said that when you started singing our first dance, she had to do a double take as she thought we'd actually brought John Legend in! I hope you go from strength to strength and we won't hesitate to recommend you and if we have another celebration. You'll be the only band we call on!
    Thanks again and best wishes.

    Carol, Wedding, Cumbria, August 2014
