What people say Help

  • Marcel and Matt were absolutely amazing - from the minute they turned up they were a huge hit with every guest. They took requests and even went the extra mile to perform a song they’d never rehearsed before. Could not recommend more highly!

    Ryan, Wedding at Burhill Golf Club in Walton-on-Thames, September 2017
  • Hey Marcel & Matt, thanks so much for your awesome set during our wedding! You created a brilliant atmosphere and everyone loved hearing you play. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family in the future! All the best.

    Jan, Wedding at The Gardens in Kent, September 2017
  • Marcel and Matt were fantastic. We had a great chat with Marcel over the phone a couple of weeks before the wedding about the day and the music we liked and on the night they didn't disappoint. We had about 50 guests at the wedding and their acoustic set created a great atmosphere for those who got up and danced the night away and others who sat back and appreciated their funky repertoire. To top it off they played our requested first dance song which really made for a special moment. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a good selection of music performed by talented musicians.

    Frances, Wedding at Cadhay in Devon, July 2017
  • The act were great, they played more than the allocated time and were both just really nice people. We would book again in a heartbeat and we both wish we could go back and just re-watch the whole set!

    Andy, Wedding in Medstead, Alton, July 2017
  • Marcel and Matt were fantastic. Hugely talented and made the effort to learn a new song for our first dance. Everyone really enjoyed the music, we couldn't have wanted more!

    Charlotte, Wedding at Dewflock Farm, Dorchester, June 2017
  • Marcel & Matt were really great - a highlight of the day. We have had so many comments from friends saying how good they were!

    Alex, Wedding at Two Woods, West Sussex, June 2017
  • Marcel and Matt played at my 50th birthday party last weekend in Oxfordshire and they were absolutely brilliant! They were very easy-going and VERY talented! They went down well with the guests and got them all up dancing! My husband and I loved them and would highly recommend them for any event. I hope to book them for another event in the future.
    Thanks so much for making it such a memorable event!

    Clair & Ian, 50th Birthday Party, Oxfordshire, April 2017
  • Booking the act was really easy and simple. A small deposit allowed us to book the perfect act for us. We couldn't have been more impressed and happy with them both on the day. Very professional and easy to talk to. Played all the songs we requested plus learning an additional. All our guests have asked about them since.

    Thank you again!

    Natalie & Shane, Wedding, Frensham, April 2017
  • Marcel and Matt were absolutely brilliant!! They were very professional and completely made my 50th birthday party. I would highly recommend them for any function - they have an amazing ability to get the guests up dancing and singing along with them and they are both talented musicians. Right up our street! Ian and I were blown away and are already thinking we would love to book them for another future event!!!!!

    Clair, 50th Birthday Party, Oxfordshire, April 2017
  • Thank you so much for making our wedding such a special day, and especially for learning Nick's favourite song for the ceremony. Everyone's told us how much they enjoyed the music - it really made the day!

    Meghan & Nick, Wedding, London, April 2017
  • I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you guys for coming all the way up t'north and playing at our wedding! You were both amazing and we really enjoyed listening to you, i've heard nothing but great things from our guests too which is true reflection of your talent! Both really nice guys too! Your cover for our first dance was also great, very impressed!!

    Chris, Wedding, Doncaster, March 2017
  • Thank you to both for last night, Nathan's 50th, you went down a storm.

    Nicola, Birthday Party, Romsey, January 2017
  • Marcel & Matt were outstanding, we hired them for our office Christmas party and everyone had a blast. They really know how to work the crowd, building up the pace until everyone is up and dancing. Musically speaking they are excellent, I really liked their covers - they were so much better than the originals! People kept complimenting on the band, and they helped make our event memorable. Will definitely keep them in mind for future events, thank you guys!

    Azahara, Office Christmas Party, London, December 2016
  • They were Excellent...!! 5***** Acoustic Performers / Musicians. Marcel met with us at the venue prior to the function start time and discussed with us how we would like the event to run throughout the evening. Their choice of "play list" was a perfect eclectic mix for the wide span age range of our guests and they managed to give the whole evening a really great vibe, getting everyone up dancing. We would definitely recommend them and certainly would book them again in the future. Excellent value for money..!!!

    Sam, Engagement Party, London, October 2016
  • Marcel & Matt played at our wedding in September 2016. We knew we wanted live music and what they delivered was more than I could have hoped for. We were super pleased! I was amazed at the quality and range that these guys could generate from just two guitars, a cajon (small drum) and vocals. They brought so much atmosphere to the wedding. As the groom I was probably supposed to be talking with guests, but I simply couldn't stop dancing. We received loads of positive compliments on the band from our guests, and the dancefloor was busy all night. These guys put everything into their two sets. Marcel & Matt's music was one big ingredient of a very special day, and I recommend you add them to your celebration.

    Darren & Kathryn, Wedding, Bedford September 2016
  • The act were absolutely brilliant, they played great music and I can not recommend them enough. Spectacular!! The DJ service that they also provided was brilliant too - got the whole room dancing!

    Jodie, Birthday Party, Hythe, August 2016
  • Both myself and my husband were delighted with the band! They arrived early and set up and not only looked the part but played beautifully! All of our guests commented on how good they were. I only wish I got to hear more from them myself as we were so busy with the photographer! They made our ceremony so special learning and playing one of our favourite John Legend songs and can not thank them enough! We have already recommended to friends for future events.

    Gabrielle, Wedding, Mallorca, June 2016
  • We were hugely satisfied with Marcel and Matt. From a practical point of view they were well organised. Marcel contacted me in plenty of time to discuss the evening including checking the dress code and any special requests. They were on time, quick to set up, professional and kept to time. The show itself was super. Marcel quickly built up a great rapport with the audience for a thoroughly enjoyable evening of entertainment. Thank you to Marcel and Matt for making my daughter's birthday a huge success, including putting in the effort to practice the two special request songs that weren't on your play list!

    Julia, 18th Birthday Party, Surrey, May 2016
  • I'm writing to say a big thanks to you both for facilitating what truly was a last minute booking. All ended up running smoothly and we were delighted with Marcel and Matt. Many thanks!

    Sarah, Private Event, Bedford, May 2016
  • Thanks for making my daughter's 18th a huge success on the 30th April. I have had so many comments from family and friends since on how great you were. Thanks also for the Mumford and Sons and Ben Howard special requests... hugely appreciated!

    Anthony, Birthday Party, Surrey, April 2016
  • Marcel & Matt were quite simply brilliant. Extremely professional, relaxed and left us feeling at ease that they could do the job. Although they were really there for "background" music, they created an atmosphere that worked perfectly. As the event was a client networking event, all our guests' main priority was to talk to each other, but a large number of guests commented on how great they were.

    Rachael, Corporate Event, Birmingham, February 2016
  • They turned up early and set up with little fuss. They started at the agreed time and played a very enjoyable set which added to the ambiance of the evening.

    Emmanuel, Private party, London, November 2015
  • What a brilliant night - these guys were fantastic and so perfect for our party. Will defiantly book them again.

    Tony, Private Party, Kent, October 2015
  • Marcel & Matt were just fantastic and exceeded my expectations. They were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They discreetly set themselves up in the barn I had hired for my 40th Birthday party and played at a level that everyone appreciated i.e. not too loud/quiet. They perform to a very high standard and have a vast array of music spanning the decades. The majority of my guests commented on how good they were and where did I find them! I would, without hesitation, hire them again.

    Helen , 40th Birthday Party, Cotswolds, May 2015
  • My new wife and I would just like to pass on our thanks to Marcel & Matt. We both had a fantastic time on the day, in no small part to the quality and professionalism of the guys. They were everything we could have asked for on the night and truly made it a memorable occasion. We had nothing but positive comments from all the guests, they sounded amazing and perfectly complemented the day. We would have no hesitation to recommend them for further events, my only regret is now not having the 3 piece instead! Thank you again for making it a special day.

    Jamie & Caroline, Wedding, March 2015
  • Just wanted to drop a line to say how happy we were with Marcel & Matt on Saturday - they were amazing and very professional throughout. They played all the right tunes and sounded incredible! It definitely added something special to our day. Many thanks!

    Sarah, Wedding, Surrey, October 2014
  • We would just like to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding reception, you truly made our day all the more memorable. We were so sad when you finished your set at the end of the night, everyone just wanted to keep on dancing!! You're both amazing musicians and such nice guys, and we wish you every success for the future.
