What people say Help

  • The Chandeliers' acoustic set was so wonderfully placed. It suited the surroundings and was a wonderful background, not intrusive and we had time to listen when the guests sat down for food. The evening band were flawless. They got everyone up on the dance floor, vocally stunning. Instrumentally amazing. Fun. Interactive. They performed a beautiful vintage version of our first dance which was an incredibly important song to us.

    Katherine & James, Wedding, Kent, September 2014
  • Wonderful professional band. They filled the dance floor in seconds and had great crowd interaction! Would book them again in an instant.

    David, Wedding, Suffolk, September 2014
  • A massive thank you for the excellent music at our wedding! I didn't get a chance to talk to you on the day as I was running about so much (and dancing non-stop) but everything was fantastic and I've heard nothing but compliments about your music. Also a HUGE thank you for your rendition of Love Cats! I was so worried we'd lose our timing and mess up our dance on the day but it all worked out perfectly. Thank you so much!

    I've received an email from function central so I'll be writing a review on there for you too but I just wanted to say a big thank you directly.

    Emma, Wedding, London, September 2014
  • We had a wedding last week and The Chandeliers played. They were amazing! Everybody said they were fantastic and I would recommend them to everyone!!

    Joanna, Wedding, London, August 2014
  • The Chandeliers played a funky vibe with a great twist. So many of the songs were things that all ages could relate to and that really helped get everyone involved on the dance floor. From modern to rock to swing and jive it all worked fantastically well. The band were all a pleasure to deal with, very professional and ready to adapt to what their audience wanted. By the end we were all screaming for more. A special thanks to Ellla for being so charming!

    James, Wedding, Oxfordshire, August, 2014
  • The Chandeliers were excellent. Very professional, friendly and fun. Really top quality band who played a brilliant range of songs to suit young and old - and even made up a song on the spot for my nephew, Charley, who was entertaining everyone on the dancefloor! Would recommend to anyone.

    Will, Wedding, London December 2013
  • Fantastic Band!!! We had all of guests dancing non stop! More than expected, a great repertoire and really great guys. Thanks so much for what was indeed a perfect wedding!

    Ralf & Anna, Wedding, London, September 2013
  • The band were fantastic. Loads of people have fed-back how great they were since the wedding. The venue only had one room so we wanted everyone to be able to enjoy the music. The dance floor was packed from the first song, and at the same time the music wasn't too overpowering for those sitting and talking - it was the perfect balance. The band were really professional, friendly and accommodating in their communication before hand and on the day. Overall it made our reception fun and special.

    Luke, Wedding, Kent, July 2013
  • The band was absolutely fantastic! Super fun music, great tunes, lovely, friendly people. I would definitely recommend them to everyone. Many thanks.

    Laura, Wedding, Leicestershire, July 2013
  • My husband and I loved our band them!!!! Our guests danced all night!!
    They are all very talented!!!! It was honestly a fantastic evening that our guests have not stopped talking about!! We loved it when they handed out a box full of instruments and we all played along!!! They really are fantastic!!!

    Lisa, Wedding, Upminster, May, 2012
  • We were informed that they did a fast set up by our wedding organizer. All the band members were polite and professional but also had great interaction with guests and ourselves.
    The music was just as we had hoped, after being so genuinely excited for their performance. The acoustics in the room were far from ideal we found out that night but the band really got everyone moving and friends paying compliments to the band to this day. Our first dance song was beautiful!! Even though we had no plan in the end how we would dance to it, it provided the perfect tune for us to swirl around to and I will always remember it.

    Function Central - always a speedy and professional response to our emails.

    Mike and Caroline, Wedding, October 2011
  • Our aim was to have a nice evening where people could talk to one another and also have a dance and enjoy some nice music. From the very beginning, the contact was very good and we felt the company really wanted to work together with us to achieve our goal. The evening itself was a great success! The Chandeliers was everything we expected and more! What a show these people put on! Fantastic feeling for atmosphere and really "played" with the audience. Afterwards we had very positive feedback from a great number of our guests - everybody had a great time! Thank you for all your efforts and in case we will do another party in London we will definitely contact you.

    Vanessa, Coporate, London, September 2011
  • Just want to send a little thanks for a brilliant performance you guys gave at my sister's wedding - it was fantastic! Loved the ukulele touch and the flapping ties. Awesome singing and awesome band. Would def recommend you guys again.

    Steve, Wedding, August 2011
  • The Chandeliers were better than we could ever have hoped for! The music from first to last note was perfect, you had everyone on the dance floor and we had so many people said how much they loved you and how lucky we were to have found you - we agreed! You really were one of the very best parts of our wedding day and I personally nearly had a tear when you finished up.

    Natalie, Wedding, September 2010
  • Thanks so much to The Chandeliers for helping us celebrate moving office! You provided the perfect setting for the evening, and it was an enormous success. It’s rare to find a band with such originality and that extra something, and I look forward to my next excuse for a party for a repeat performance! Excellent sound, fantastic repertoire, and all delivered with a great sense of humour.

    Fiona, Party, London, July 2010
  • Thank you for making our conference a smooth one. Many people commented on how you fun you all were. You certainly made my job much easier.

    Ed, Sunlife Insurance, June 2008
  • I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to you and all the band, that Chandeliers' feeling certainly rubbed off on all the guests, We even found a tie on the dance floor.. I wish you all the very best for the future… regards Sarah.
