What people say Help

  • Party Up exceeded our expectations by miles and we had very high expectations having seen there promo videos. All the band were professional and exceptional musicians. We added extra brass and asked for a female vocalist to accompany the band. Though not normally with the band Noreen was an excellent addition and we were so glad we added the extra members to give the extra depth to the band. The band kept the floor filled all night and the rave reviews from our guests keep on coming. Even several of our suppliers who do wedding week in week out commented that the band was the best they had ever heard at a wedding.
    5* does not do this band justice.
    My wife and I would recommend Rich and the Party Up band to anyone. We can't wait to host another event so we can book Party Up again!

    James , Wedding at Boxley House in Kent, September 2017
  • Function Centre were a pleasure to deal with and provided all the information we needed very promptly. Party Up are a fantastic and fun band and we would definitely recommend them to anyone who feels that music should be a big part of their celebration.

    Kristy, Wedding at The Granary in Fawsley, September 2017
  • We loved Party Up! They were an incredible band and really brought the house down during our wedding. Ashley and I looked for ages for a good band, and once we saw Party Up on Function Central's website we were sold - and they certainly did not disappoint during our event.

    On top of playing during our reception, we also had Max and Lifford play three songs during our ceremony - which was awesome. They agreed to do this within 3-weeks of the event and their flexibility was thoroughly appreciated.

    I'd strongly recommend Party Up to any of my friends organising a wedding or event - they rocked!

    Scott, Wedding at Bridwell Park in Devon, September 2017
  • Party Up performed at our wedding last Friday... and rocked the place! We were so looking forward to their performance from the moment we booked them, and they surpassed all expectations. The dance floor was full to the brim and the tunes were uplifting and banging! The band are so friendly and at the same time professional. Genuinely talented guys, thank you so much for adding to our awesome memories of the best day/night ever.

    Kristy & Kev, Wedding, Kent, September 2017
  • Incredible band!! Smashed their set and had everyone dancing from start to finish. Our first dance was brill. Guests are all asking who they were and commenting on how good they are. Would definitely recommend.

    Laura, Wedding, Kent, September 2017
  • If my couples want any wedding any wedding advice, my answer is always 'do it your way and get a band'. You fellas could sing & play the alphabet and the dance floor would be full.

    Derek, Wedding Photographer, September 2017
  • The act were amazing, tight musicians and great singers. Set list was on point and the management of the occasion/crowd was brilliant. All guests were loving it and compliments were aplenty. Definitely helped make the evening and the Bride/Groom focus was just right. The only reason I would get married again would be to see you guys play!

    Kyle, Wedding at Smeetham Hall in Sudbury, August 2017
  • Party Up frankly made our wedding! All our guests mentioned how good they were while they dealt with any requests we had, such as helping with playlists during their sets etc. They also contacted us directly a few weeks before the wedding and afterwards to check we were happy. They were lovely. They had everyone dancing and really brought the evening part of the wedding to life. We could not have asked for a better act for our wedding day and would highly recommend them to anyone else.

    Alex, Wedding, Manor Farm in Huntington, July 2017
  • My wife and I booked Party Up through Function Central after months of trawling the internet looking for a wedding band. We were looking for a soul/funk band who had a brilliant lead singer and when we found Party Up we knew this was our band! The band were absolutely incredible and were a real highlight of the evening with all our guests commenting on how amazing and professional they were. Liff (lead singer) has got an unbelievable voice! They also called us up a week prior to the wedding to go over everything and cater to what we liked musically which was very reassuring for us. I would highly recommend using Function Central (and Party Up!) who really helped in creating some wonderful memories for our wedding!

    Ben, Wedding at Axnoller House in Dorset, July 2017
  • Party Up were fantastic at getting the dance floor rammed and keeping people there with awesome tunes. Also an absolute professional pleasure, exceeded expectations and were super easy-going. Huge Thanks!

    Pete, Wedding in Tackley, Oxford, July 2017
  • Best band we have ever had the pleasure of seeing, truly talented and all our guests agreed!

    The Rooneys , Wedding in Horsley Tower, Leatherhead, July 2017
  • Function Central as an agency were extremely helpful- phone calls and emails assisted us in choosing the right musicians for us.
    Party Up were an extremely professional band, we were worried about them setting up whilst we were eating because we had the stage right in the middle of the marquee, but it was no problem at all barely noticeable with everyone chatting. They were amazing, exactly what we hoped for, blues vocals and amazing musicians playing old school tunes as well as current numbers. The atmosphere was amazing and the overwhelming comments we got from our guests about Party Up tells us how much they added to our special day. The variety of songs they had playing during their break still kept our guests dancing too! They even involved the crowd with sing along moments- it was just great!
    I didn't want to leave but the bride and groom had to make their exit at midnight!"

    Victoria & David , Wedding at Copinger Hall, Suffolk, June 2017
  • Party Up are truly fabulous! I did my research on this band well in advance of our wedding day, and they just blew us all away with their music! Function Central Agency were also very helpful in organising everything for the day. 5 stars all around!

    Abiy, Wedding at Eight Members Club, London, July 2017
  • Party Up were incredible. We could not have asked for a better performance. The whole band were incredibly talented and we have received so many compliments from our guests.

    Milly, Wedding in Salisbury, June 2017
  • Party Up were absolutely fantastic and everything that we hoped they would be. They brought so much energy to the evening and the dance floor was filled from start to finish. Rich the band member contacted me a couple of weeks before and helped sort out the admin and finer details so that we were all set for the big day. Also, the band were very accommodating and learned a song that we requested. Function Central were also great. Upfront and transparent with all the costs and T&Cs and were very responsive to any questions I had.

    Chris, Polhawn Fort, Cornwall, June 2017
  • Firstly, the booking experience was so easy and simple. The guys from the band and Function Central could not be nicer!! Although they're not cheap they're hugely worth the money!! I could not speak highly enough, as the groom I didn't even notice them come in and begin to process of setting up. They played our first dance and hit it perfectly. They were interactive and fun loving which just added to a fantastic experience. The atmosphere they managed to conjure was phenomenal and we would definitely recommend Party Up! Simply incredible. I've been in bands most of my life so I understand how difficult it is to set up and produce a crowd on the dance floor, however they did this with ease! Thank you so much for adding to such an unforgettable day!

    George, Wedding at Lillibrooke Manor, Maidenhead, May 2017
  • Quick to set up and the performances were excellent. They listened to our request for older songs and got everyone up dancing all night!

    Tom, Wedding at The Crown Inn, Henley-On-Thames, May 2017
  • Both the act and the agency were absolutely first class. Can't fault them!

    Lisa, Wedding at West Dean Gardens, Chichester, May 2017
  • The agency were really helpful and easily contactable. The band were great, understood what was needed and were happy to make changes on the night if this was required.

    Sarita, Railway Awards at The Brewery, London, May 2017
  • James and I loved the band from start to finish!! It was exactly what we wanted as for us getting the music right was so important as it makes the wedding and the party. The dance floor was full the whole night and one of our highlights is our first dance which the band performed so amazingly! They exceeded all our expectations, were very easy to discuss the plan for the day with and all our guests have commented to us how good they thought the band were. We had the best day of our lives and Party Up were a big part of making it so.

    Harriet, Wedding, East Sussex, December 2016
  • 11/10 they were amazing and to me they played better than the year before. The choice of music was on point and really suited our audience and the lead singer is outstanding. The whole band are world class and we will be booking again next year - everyone loved them!

    Val, Sky Christmas Party, London, December 2016
  • Guys, what can I say, from me and Eddie and all our wedding party, thanks a million, you were amazing (as I knew you would be from all the feedback I had read about you and listening to your demo playlist). So glad we booked you for our wedding, cheers.

    Stephanie, Wedding, Oxfordshire, December 2016
  • Party Up were absolutely brilliant. They got everyone up and dancing and played a variety of funky music. We also received lots of great feedback from our staff!

    Lesa, Christmas Party, Norfolk, December 2016
  • WOW what a night you guys never cease to amaze me, the band has got even better! You were absolutely outstanding and your lead singer has such a great voice, I don’t know how you’re not touring the world selling out stadiums :)

    Val, Sky TV Xmas Party, London, December 2016
  • I am writing to say a huge Thank You to the fantastic band Party Up who were involved in making Alice and Tom's wedding so perfect, the band were fantastic, the guests absolutley loved them, the dance floor never emptied, and the singer interacted with the guests, which was brilliant to see. Alice and Tom and all the guests had a fantastic day.

    In run up to the wedding, and on the day itself you went above and beyond, nothing was too much, anything I needed or asked you to do, you did without question, you all worked so hard to ensure everything was perfect, It was an absolute pleasure to work with such an exceptional band, they are so friendly, polite and and we look forward to working with you all again soon. So from the bottom of our hearts we would both like to thank you very much, the wedding went perfectly because of all you guys. We cannot thank you enough for everything.

    Amanda, Wedding, London, November 2016
  • Party Up band were amazing. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests. Everyone was up dancing throughout and didn't want their final set to end. They were professional, reliable and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to others - in fact I already have!

    Vikki, Wedding, London, October 2016
  • How on earth to thank you for such an epic performance at our wedding back in October?! Both the DJ and our caterer commented on what a pleasure it was to watch you: they will have seen so many 'function bands' so i feel that speaks volumes. Never mind the incredible guest feedback!. Thanks so much.

    Lottie, Wedding, London, October, 2016
  • We could not have been happier. They nailed 'Is This Love' by Bob Marley as our first dance and then carried it on all night. The garage medley and 'Treasure' were also highlights. Guests of all ages have specifically commented on the band and how they made our reception one of the best things they've been too!

    Mark, Wedding, London, September 2016
  • The band were excellent throughout. Both the acoustic set during the drinks reception and the full band sets later in the evening were superb, the dance floor was packed for the live sets and many guests commented on how good the music was. Even the owner of the venue made special reference to how great the music had been that night. The guys were also very flexible in allowing us to use their microphone for the wedding speeches, plug in our own equipment to record the audio from the speeches directly from the mic and allowed us to plug in an iPod to play background music early in the evening before they took over. All in all, a joy to have there and a real highlight for lots of the guests. Thank you!

    James, Wedding, Berkshire, September 2016
  • Ok, so this gleaming review has been a long time coming, running late like everything did on our wedding day! A month ago Party Up rocked the roof off our marquee in Thetford. We are so pleased that we booked this amazing band. The comments from guests are still flooding in about how brilliant they were! The guys went over and above, they were very accommodating with our requests, and are all incredible musicians. I'm so glad I changed into a shorter skirt for the reception so that I could dance properly!!! Their garage mix was OFF.THE.HOOK! You will not regret booking these guys. Thank you for making our special day even more special.

    Caribou, Wedding, Thetford, September 2016
  • The band were absolutely incredible! Some of the nicest most talented guys I have met. They had so much energy and had a fantastic repertoire. The lead vocalist was amazing! They were not your average wedding band they were gig level and that's what it felt like. They were all very accommodating and took time to mingle with the employees. They were very low maintenance and a pleasure to deal with. We would most certainly book them again and I will be recommending them to everyone I know! Function Central were a pleasure to work with and Party Up are one of the best bands I have heard! They are incredibly professional, friendly and accommodating, extremely talented and you would not be disappointed! The lead vocalist was faultless and could hit some real high notes. They had great energy and really knew how to get the crowd going!

    Emma, Corporate Summer Party, Hertforshire, August 2016
  • Extremely pleased with Party Up. So many of our guests commented how great the band was. I would highly recommend them. I would definitely use them again for another function. They were current, fun, enthusiastic, got everyone on their feet. You can't help but dance when they play.

    Charlotte, Wedding, Kent, August 2016
  • Just a quick email to thank you and the guys so much for their work on Saturday night. They were really professional and friendly, arriving on time and setting up quickly (despite being in conditions similar to Glastonbury!). They were fantastic, getting everyone up and dancing. We will be recommending you to everyone! Thanks again, I look forward to working with you all again soon.

    Ed, Private Event, London, July 2016
  • Party Up were absolutely amazing, they had our guest dancing all night. The variety of songs they played were perfect and all our guest made so many complements about how brilliant they were.

    Michelle, Wedding, Berkshire, June 2016
  • Party Up were sensational, the variety of songs they played was brilliant and kept our guests up dancing all night. Book Party Up Band if you want your night to run smoothly and for all your guests to have the best time ever.

    Michelle, Wedding, Reading, June 2016
  • Brilliant band! They were so professional - contacted us to run through what we wanted, turned up early, got all the timings of the night right, and were really nice guys. The music was great and the lead singer rocked. Couldn't have been happier with them!

    Susie, Wedding,London, May 2016
  • Party Up stood out immediately when looking for a band for our wedding - for your consistent positive reviews and your open, flexible style and approach too. Despite our complex brief, you adapted to meet our every expectation and more! As well as your amazing performances, leading on the Scottish dancing and a Danish waltz too brought our cultures together so well. Thank you too for the song dedication that we had requested before the evening and for working with our gospel choir to make sure all of our entertainment went to plan - you went above and beyond pre, post and during our wedding and the care factor of Party Up was so appreciated!
    Party Up brought exactly the atmosphere we had hoped for ... talented and professional and so energetic and upbeat in your every song. For most of the evening everyone was off their seat and on the dance floor - a huge success and we feel very lucky to have had Party Up as part of our day! Considering the budget for the whole day, Party Up were without a doubt where we spent our money most wisely.
    Our guests continue to rave about our band and, like any Bride and Groom, we couldn't be happier to know that our family and friends enjoyed our day as much as we did. Many of our friends who are planning their weddings have since tried to book Party Up without success ... do book as early as you can so you too can enjoy these most fabulous people!
    Thank you so much - keep doing what you are doing! I hope many more brides are lucky enough to experience the magic of Party Up!

    Katie, Wedding, London, May 2016
  • 100% satisfied. Party Up were EXACTLY what we hoped they would be (dare I say it, better than the demo tracks online). They played our first dance and Father/Daughter dance live which were brilliant and set the mood straight away. The dance floor was full from 8-12pm and we were so disappointed when they finished.
    We opted to have interval music chosen by Party Up in between their two one hour live sets as opposed to the full DJ option (where you could submit requests etc) and it worked brilliantly.
    Logistically, they were perfect. I spoke with the band a week before the wedding to run through details and had their contact number in case of any last minute queries. One thing I was slightly concerned about was that we would be eating in the marquee whilst the band set up - I talked this through with the band and we decided the best time to do this etc and it worked perfectly. Nobody noticed them setting up and they were quiet and efficient and did a quick sound check at the agreed time.
    Thoroughly lovely people who I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone who loves Motown/soul music - we will definitely book them again in the future.

    Sophie, Wedding, Oxfordshire, April 2016
  • Thank you Party Up for a fantastic night of music at my 40th birthday on Saturday! I had so many people comment on just how brilliant you were! You made my night!

    Hannah, Birthday Party, London, April 2016
  • Party Up are the best live band I've ever danced all night to! They perform with huge joy and really know how to keep the crowd moving. I'll never book anyone else!

    Emma Thompson, Actress, Private Event, London, April 2016
  • We wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you all for playing at our wedding, the music was exactly what we'd hoped it would be and everyone has absolutely raved about you guys. Thank you again and I can't wait for another excuse to book you!!!

    Sophie and Attilio, Wedding, London, April 2016
  • We were extremely happy with Party Up. They were completely worth it and kept the dance floor full all night!

    Annie, Wedding, Hampshire, March 2016
  • This was the second time we have booked Party Up and they were amazing! Our client also requested their details to send praise! We hope to have them back again in the future.

    Kailee, Private party, London, February 2016
  • Just wanted to say thank you to the whole band for the most amazing set you guys did at our wedding on 19th February. Everyone is still raving about you, the music was just brilliant, just what we wanted, upbeat and soulful. Thank you!

    Katie and Justin, Wedding, Surrey, February 2016
  • Party Up were incredible. They made our first dance very special with a beautiful rendition of You Got The Love and got everyone on the dance floor with their eclectic mix of soul, pop and even a surprise old school garage medley! They were extremely friendly, professional and helped our wedding run seamlessly.

    Nick and Marissa, Wedding, Worcestershire, November 2015
  • They contacted us a few weeks before to run through the final arrangements. He was very friendly and professional. On the date of the wedding Party Up arrived and set up well on time without any issues, and started with our first dance song before then going into their set. They were absolutely fantastic!! They kept people on the dance floor all night long. As a musician myself it was important to me that they not only had good energy but also a really good sound. They are talented musicians and work very well together. They have a large set list, a very professional sound, and their singer has a powerful soulful voice. They were very smart, friendly, and a few people commented that they were very good with the children who were dancing at the beginning of the evening. I am so pleased we decided to book Party Up, they were well worth every penny! We have had many people commenting on how good the bad were, the perfect end to our perfect day…
    Thank you!

    Keith, Wedding, Surrey, September 2015
  • Party Up were unbelievable, blew our minds. Cannot recommend highly enough. If you're looking for a funk/soul band you will not find better!
    Thanks guys for an amazing evening!

    Neil, Wedding, Suffolk, August 2015
  • Party UP were absolutely fantastic! They were everything we hoped for and more. The band were the most important part of the wedding to us and they smashed it. We went for the full works, trumpet, sax and an extra set. We especially loved the live garage sequence, the crowd went wild! Every band member was superb. The dance floor was packed solid the whole night. So many of our guests praised the band, one even grabbed the mic at the end of the evening to sing their praises. They also allowed my Dad to play the saxophone with them - a surprise for everyone, as he had learnt how to play one song in secret! I am so thankful to Party UP for making our wedding party dreams come true. BOOK THESE GUYS, they are unreal!

    Sophie & Jack, Wedding, West Sussex, June 2015
  • We hired Party Up for our wedding in January and truly believe it was the best decision we made with regard to our wedding! To this day people are still talking about how amazing they were! We really wanted a band that would get everyone on their feet for a real party and we certainly got that - the dance floor was full all night!! We couldn't recommend them highly enough! Thank you guys!!

    Grace, Wedding, Kent, January 2015
  • Thanks so much for a great night, you were a big hit with the Wallacespace gang ...look forward to seeing you all again for our event next year ...Brilliant band ...Lovely guys x

    Jenirose, Private party, Kent, January 2015
  • Party UP played at our wedding at South Farm last year and I can't believe it has taken us this long to post as people are still talking about how fantastic the band were We were blown away by how professional and 'tight' the band were, their excellent range of covers and their ability to read and work the crowd. Thank you so much for helping make our special day even more fab.

    Mark & Anita, Wedding, Surrey, December 2014
  • I booked Party Up for my wedding and wow! They were amazing! We Danced all night and all my guests said how fantastic they were. They were a really nice bunch too. We were a little concerned as we hadn't seen them perform prior but we had nothing to worry about.

    Georgie, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, November 2014
  • Party Up is an amazing band and they were the perfect choice for our wedding. They had everybody up dancing, regardless of age, from the start to the end of their set. They are all incredible musicians, fronted by a great singer.

    They were very also very helpful and friendly, beginning with the initial contact prior to the wedding and then on the night itself. They were more than happy to play some songs of our choice, including a stunning performance of our chosen first dance. Otherwise their set list was just right for the event with a mixture of soul, funk, pop and rock. We could not recommend this band highly enough.

    Catherine and James, Wedding, London, October 2014
  • I could not fault the band, They were fantastic!!! They were very professional, stress free and fantastic musicians. All of our guests couldn't believe how good they were and we all certainly had a fantastic evening. The band were also accommodating as we had limited space. Their play list was great, and provided a range of music that appealed to a number of different tastes.

    Greg & Amy , Wedding, Suffolk, August 2014
  • We had an absolutely great time on Saturday! We couldn't be more delighted than we are with how things went. We had the most perfect day and the band was fantastic. It was also lovely and special to us (and to Joshie) that they were able to play that little section of special songs for Josh, with the whole band joining in. We so enjoyed the music (and we know everyone else did too) and we just wish we had had three or four hours of them not just two. But we had a really great day and evening. Party Up were fantastic. Please pass on our sincere thanks to them and thanks also to you again for dealing with everything so promptly and efficiently.

    John & Sharon, Wedding, Kent, August 2014
  • Thank you so much for your amazing performance at our wedding on Friday at Blake Hall, amazing version of our first dance song, and playlist choices were absolutely perfect!

    Grace, Wedding, Blake Hall, July 2014
  • After our wonderful wedding on Wednesday, soundtrack supplied by Party Up, we could not have grooved any harder. Wonderful guys... Thank you for making it so amazing!

    Tim & Kat, Wedding, Chiddingstone, July 2014
  • Party up were brilliant, very professional and fun. They had every one of my guests on the dance floor at one point! Great set, we had an amazing time enjoying their music they really made my night! Thank you.

    Joanna, Private party, Sussex, November 2013
  • Kate and I wanted to send our thanks again for the great set you played at our wedding on Saturday night. You helped to put on a superb party for our guests and everyone passed on their compliments after the evening.

    We appreciated you accommodating our special requests, especially after the last minute hiccups, and for making sure that everything went as planned. Thank you again, we will certainly recommend you to any friends who are planning similar events!

    Kate & Richard, Wedding, London, October 2013
  • We've just got back from honeymoon in the outer hebrides and now that we are reunited with internet we wanted to say a huge thank you for your performance at our wedding. You guys were absolutely fantastic -we expected good things but you really surpassed all expectations. Everyone has been asking where we found you -they so enjoyed themselves (and as you know didn't want to leave at the end!!). A number of our family and friends are musicians and commented on how professional and skilled you all were -it was a hard crowd to please and you nailed it. Our guests of all ages loved it -from the kids to my 83 year old grandmother who stayed especially for your last song! I hope that you enjoyed the gig and were well looked after - we would definitely be happy to recommend you to anyone interested. Many thanks again

    Eleanor, Wedding, London, September 2013
  • Party Up were sensational and exceeded all our expectations. My daughter Alison and her husband Jack had wanted a band who could do Soul and a bit of R&B. We got all of that and more. During the two sets and regardless of age group and music, the dance floor was just packed from start to finish which says it all. Party Up were the icing on the cake, everyone commented to us how great they were. Outstanding job. A huge thank you, Stuart.

    Stuart, Wedding, Blyth, September 2013
  • Party Up were fantastic - they did a great job and we couldn't have been happier with their performance. Their version of Johnny B Goode for our first dance was excellent and really got the party started - they filled the dance floor for the entirety of both their sets, which says it all. So many people have said to us how good the band were - we're really pleased we chose them.

    Edmund, Wedding, Norfolk, August 2013
  • Party Up are a fantastic band. The music was excellent. On the night they played excellently and since then many guests have commented on how good they were! Especially the lead singer!!

    Sarah, Wedding, Richmond Park, August 2013
  • We were extremely satisfied, the band were absolutely amazing and so professional. We couldn't have asked for any more!

    Keely, Wedding, Kent, August 2013
  • Party Up were absolutely fantastic! I've lost count of the number of wedding guests who commented on how much they'd enjoyed them. These guys were consummate professionals; turned up on time, setup with minimum fuss then blasted out two sets of soul, funk and Motown. I know it can be tricky picking a band through an agency with only a few mp3s to go on but these guys are first class, especially with the brass section. Many thanks again for making our day special.

    David & Emma, Wedding, Newbury, August 2013
  • We couldn't have been more happy with Party Up! They played our first dance which was amazing and then had everybody dancing all night. So many of our guests commented on how good they were and I have already passed on their details as people want to book them for their wedding! They were all so professional and friendly and played all the songs we had requested. We had the most amazing day, and the band really added to making it perfect!

    Amanda, Wedding, Essex, July 2013
  • The band was absolutely fantastic, played all the right music, and had the dance floor filled the whole time they were on! Every comment I have had from my guests all the mentioned the band and how good they were, and what a great atmosphere there was at the party! It was a perfect night band, food and the weather! Thank you very much party up!

    Clare , Silver Wedding Anniversary, Portsmouth, June 2013
  • The band were amazing and we had lots of comments on the night from guests saying how great they were, when they tried to end their set everyone asked for more! They were on time and very professional and did 2 great sets that got everyone dancing followed by a great DJ playlist. We also had a acoustic sax and guitar duo for the drinks reception which set the scene perfectly and was a wonderful welcome for guests. Overall brilliant, having a band was really important for us and Party up were just want we were looking for. Would highly recommend them!

    Rebecca, Wedding, Boreham, May 2013
  • They were excellent. Professional, arrived in good time, were quiet setting up whilst the wedding and speeches were in full flow. The played a great set and had everyone dancing from start to finish. We loved them.

    Polly, Wedding, Lutterworth, March 2013

    Karen, Corporate Event, London, January 2013
  • Party Up were absolutely fantastic. We've had so many people asking for their details for future bookings. Everyone loved the music, the atmosphere was electric (so much so that the Father of the Groom attempted a stage dive) and we all danced the night away. The band were professional and courteous, but most of all the MUSIC! Great! Perfect set list, really made our day. Thank you!

    Jane, Wedding, Dorset, November 2012
  • We were a little worried at how the band would be as we booked it all online. However, we had nothing to worry about. The band arrived on time and were really professional. They got everyone up dancing and we all had a great time. The grooms dad commented that it was the only thing keeping him awake as he enjoyed it so much. I think that speaks for itself. Brilliant! Thank you so much.

    Louise, Wedding, Stow on the Wold, October 2012
  • They were brilliant. They turned up on time, got ready with minimum of fuss and were enormously accommodating of our time keeping or lack of it. The music itself was bang on. The songs chosen were perfect and the band did everything they could to ensure that everyone was on their feet dancing at some point. A massive thank you to the whole band, you rock and really contributed to a fantastic evening.

    Jonathan and Alison, Wedding, London, October 2012
  • We absolutely loved Party Up. They were fantastic! Both professional to deal with, and exceptional on the talent front. They were friendly, co-operative and fun.

    Dave, Private Event, Hilton, July 2012
  • Party Up! made the night at our black tie ball. From the first note to the last encore the dance floor was packed and they interacted with the audience. The other thing I would say about the band is that they were all very professional to deal with, turned up on time, set up on time and interacted with us organisers in a friendly, helpful manner. That makes so much difference - but if it's just the music you're interested in then I'd say ten out of ten.

    David, Summer Charity Ball, July 2012
  • Sorry this is a little belated but we are just beginning to return to normal! We wanted to thank you all SO much for your fantastic efforts at the wedding. We have had a veritable flood of thank you letters and calls and almost without exception they all rave about the band! You did us proud and if you don't pick up a good few more events to play at I'll be very surprised - lots of people have asked who you were so I'll make sure I pass on details. A HUGE thank you to you all - it was absolutely FANTASTIC!

    Richard, Wedding, Somerset, June 2012
  • I truly believe you are destined for greatness! So many guests, of all ages, commented on how great the band was. Of any aspect of the wedding, you were the most talked about. For me, you are the most perfect band - funky, upbeat, interactive, sociable and intuitive. I was a little nervous having never heard you play before, but you exceeded all my expectations and more. Thank you all so very much for creating so much energy and fun - you made our day very special.

    Sam, Wedding, London, May 2012
  • Party Up completely exceeded our expectations in every way. They set up on time, they played our first dance superbly, they interacted with the guests, they looked like they were really enjoying themselves and they got everyone dancing right from the start. The dance floor was full all night and everyone loved them to bits - I am still getting brilliant feedback about them 10 days later. The guys sounded amazing and they are clearly very talented musicians. I would love to hear them again and I can honestly say that they could not have been better for the occasion - stunning!

    Mike, Wedding, Worcestershire
  • We just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. I can't tell you how many compliments you have received from our guests since. You were the talk of the town. So many people have said that they haven't experienced such a fantastic atmosphere at a wedding before and so much of that was down to you guys. Sorry it's taken us so long to send this, we're just getting back to down to earth! We do have a photo that we must forward to you, and we will just as soon as its been forwarded onto us. Thank you again, we hope you all enjoyed yourselves as we certainly did. We couldn't have asked for a better night.
