What people say Help

  • The Bees played all songs requested and also put together a good set which everyone at the wedding enjoyed. They got everyone dancing and made the evening.

    Darren, Wedding at The Matara Centre, Tetbury, July 2017
  • Very impressed with the band. They were great at getting everyone going and they went above and beyond to make sure that we have a fantastic event!

    Julian, Wedding at Brinsop Court, Herefordshire, June 2017
  • We booked The Bees to play at our wedding as they had such a fantastic repertoire of songs which we thought would suit all of our guests. I am SO pleased we booked them as they did such a fantastic job! The band arrived on time and were very friendly, set up with no problems and started with a bang! They sounded amazing and all our guests were so impressed with them. The dance floor was always full with people dancing, I was just gutted it was over so quick!! I would most defiantly book The Bees again for any future event. Thank you for making our wedding day extra special!

    Abbie, Wedding, Sussex, February 2016
  • The Bees played at our party and they were great, just what we were looking for. They were very talented & even accommodated my request to play 500 Miles by The Proclaimers which was wasn't on their usual song list. One of my friends is now considering booking for a 40th birthday party next year. Thanks very much to The Bees for helping to make it a great night!

    Gemma, Private Party, Oxford, December 2014
  • After hearing many good things about these guys, I booked them for my friend's party. They undoubtedly made the evening with their great sound, as well as their explosive energy and personalities, and they had everyone dancing all night long. They were extremely friendly and professional, and it was lovely to meet such genuine guys. I would definitely recommend them for any future parties or events!

    Ryan , Wedding, Wiltshire
  • We took a bit of a gamble and booked these guys based on their playlist and samples. We were not disappointed. They were fantastic and really got everyone up on the dance floor. They were reliable, friendly and above all their music rocked. We couldn't recommend them enough.

    Lucie & Simon , Wedding, Isle of Wight
  • The Bees are a superb live band who were very helpful in arranging our 6th Form Prom. They helped sort the playlist and were even able to learn a song for us! All the band members were very friendly and they created a great atmosphere for our prom, getting everybody on the dance floor! And their skills didn't stop at live music; they also provided a full light show making the evening even more special and a DJ set at the end! I would definitely book the band again!
