    Maxine, Summer Ball, Lancashire, May 2017
  • Fantastic performance, prompt arrival, friendly and very professional throughout the evening. Positive feedback from all my friends and guests - quite amazing!

    Tim, Birthday Party, Northumberland, October 2016
  • From set up right through to the last song The Different Lights were incredible. They knew exactly what to sing and the DJ sets were brilliant too. I have had so many people approach me expressing how good they were. They made a perfect day even better! I cannot thank them enough!

    Danny, Wedding, Liverpool, October 2016
  • The band were fantastic for the first moment they made contact with me to see what we wanted playing to the actual day where they just got on and did their thing - highly recommended!

    Paul, Wedding, Manchester, August 2016
  • The Different Lights were amazing! The band contacted me on the run up to the wedding to discuss timings, the set up and any particular songs we wanted. Damien was friendly, helpful and open to discussion. My husband and I LOVE music and we were blown away by this band! Three weeks on and we are still getting compliments on their behalf. Thank you so much for making our day even more perfect. We need another party so we can listen to them again!! Thank you!

    Leanne, Wedding, East Yorkshire, July 2016
  • The Different Lights were very friendly right from the first point of contact. We also had great feedback from our guests - an excellent band all round!

    Paul, Wedding, Manchester, August 2016
  • Our private party has grown over several years into a mini festival for friends, family and university friends of our three sons. This was without doubt the best band we have had, and I was especially impressed with the change in music to suit the majority on the dance floor as it changed from shall I say the more mature party goers to the mid twenties crowd and they danced and danced. They tried several times to end their performance but were called back with over a hundred chanting "one more song", we could not have chosen a better band. Great guys to have around.

    Paul & Jane, Private Party, Derbyshire, July 2016
  • We were so impressed with the demo tracks listed on the website that we knew The Different Lights were the right band to play at our wedding reception. On the day itself, the band arrived exactly on time and despite the fact that we were running late and they had to wait to set up, they remained happy and professional. Everyone is still talking about how good they were and what a great set list it was! They created exactly the right sort of atmosphere for our reception and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to our friends and family.

    Sara & Ben, Wedding, Manchester, April 2016
  • Thanks guys for being amazing entertainment at our wedding reception last night!!! You really made the night extra special and you were a big hit with everyone!

    Fallon, Wedding, Cheshire, April 2016
  • The Different lights were fantastic, they played a wide selection of songs for all tastes and had everyone up and dancing. The guys in the band were lovely, especially Damien who seemed very calm and professional about the set up and was on hand for lots of questions.

    Laura, Christmas party, Manchester, December 2015
  • Brilliant night on friday boys, Everyone had only good things to say about you and the music. You got everyone up and dancing. Thank you so much!

    Sam, Private Party, Cheshire, December 2015
  • Played at my wedding in October, absolutely incredible!

    Peter, Wedding, Manchester, October 2015
  • The band were very professional, Damien contacted us before the big day to go through last minute requests. When we arrived at the venue the band were already set up and ready. They played a variety of music to suit all tastes which kept the dance floor full all night. Every body said what a fab band they were. Even those who wouldn't normally dance were up dancing, which was really good to see. Can't speak highly enough of them, would highly recommend them. They were the icing on the cake. 2 weeks after the wedding people are still raving about the band.

    Lorna, Wedding, Chester, July 2015
  • Completely satisfied! The band made contact with me and took on board my comments with no problems in advance of our party. Set up and ready with plenty of time ready to start after the meal. Really really pleased, everyone loved them. Great mix of music and the feedback from the staff was all very positive. Would certainly recommend them to anyone! They already have another potential booking from a staff member for their wedding, with another one also possible. Great bunch of guys.

    Maxine, Corporate Party, June 2015
  • Absolutely 100% satisfied on the day. The band were incredible, we had the additional acoustic guitar option for during the service and during the drinks reception, at all points we had nothing but positive comments from guests and during the evening reception there wasn't a minute where the dance floor wasn't full. They sounded amazing and played music that the crowd wanted.

    Emily, Wedding, Liverpool, May 2015
  • Couldn't be happier with the band. Made our evening reception! Guests still commenting on how good they were. Really friendly and professional to work with. Many many thanks!

    Jessica, Wedding, North Yorkshire, September 2014
  • Thanks for helping to make our day perfect! Everyone has said how fantastic your band was and we absolutely loved our first dance being sang for us! Many thanks again Mr & Mrs White xxx

    Andrea , Wedding, Liverpool, July 2014
  • We booked the band for our wedding this May and quite frankly we were absolutely blown away by their professionalism and their quality. From the moment we got into contact with them to the wedding itself they were unbelievably helpful. Everybody at our wedding said how fantastic they were. I'm not sure we could have chosen a better group. Their varied yet amazing playlist ensured the dance floor was never empty and rather than the event feel like a wedding it actually felt like a GIG!!!! We can't thank the lads enough for making our special day even better. Thank you!

    Graeme, Wedding, Grasmere, May 2014
  • We were very satisfied with the band, and were so impressed at how professional they all were. They arrived on time to set up, and then changed into their outfits for the night, so they all looked very smart. The music was brilliant throughout the night, and the dance-floor was never empty! Everyone commented on how great the band were!

    Stephanie, Wedding, Liverpool, June, 2013
  • We could not have asked for a better band, playlist or service from the guys in The Different Lights. From making first contact to them leaving the venue after an AMAZING couple of sets, we were so pleased. Any recommendations we can give for them for the future will be whole hear-ted and genuine.

    Nicky, Wedding, Liverpool, June, 2013
  • The band were great - had everyone up dancing with some brilliant music. All the guests thought they were amazing & were asking how we heard of them. Basically, a great bunch of lads that were professional & couldn't have been more helpful in fitting in with our plans. Great band which made our night.

    Rob, Wedding, Southampton, June 2013
  • 100% satisfied. A absolutely great bunch of lads first class performance.

    Kingsley, Wedding, Liverpool, May, 2013
  • They were absolutely fantastic. The band performed 3 x 40 minute sets and every one of them was brilliant. We had guests dancing all night and the band helped create a fantastic atmosphere. There were calls for an Encore at the end of the last session and the band obliged with two extra songs. I would definitely recommend this band to friends and family.

    Spencer, Wedding, Burley-In-Wharfdale, March 2013
  • The band was excellent and were really appreciated by us and our guests. Both sets really suited our tastes and we were especially pleased when they played "The Only One I Know", by the Charlatans, which they learnt especially for the wedding - it was ace!

    Peter and Helen, Wedding, Cheshire, November 2012
  • A big thanks to the band for helping to make our wedding celebration a fantastic night. Before the wedding day they called twice to confirm details and assure me that everything was organised which really helped to put our minds at ease. The guys were extremely professional and nothing seemed too much trouble. I got numerous comments through the evening from guests saying how good the band was and asking where I booked them from. Once again thanks to the band and the professional service Function Central provided.

    Glenn, Wedding, Liverpool, September 2012
  • You guys are amazing! Thank you so much for doing such a great job – people kept coming up to us commenting on the band, and you kept our guests dancing all night. Thanks guys!

    Ady & Beth, Wedding, Cheshire, August 2012
  • Truly awesome guys, you rocked our wedding! Thank you!

    John & Vicky, Wedding, Lancashire, August 2012
  • Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday. We have had so many people commenting on how good the band were, it made the night! Would not hesitate recommending you.

    John-Paul & Kate, Wedding, Lancashire, July 2012
  • The band were very involved from the early stages and made a great effort to incorporate my requirements, even calling the night before his own wedding to finalise the details which was impressive. The sound quality and talent was fantastic and they were a really fun bunch of guys to work and party with. I would highly recommend them as talented professionals with a brilliant sound who will bend over backwards to make the party go with a swing.

    Polly, Wedding, Liverpool, June 2012
  • We had an amazing time – everyone had a ball, and said how fabulous you were. Thank you so much for helping make our wedding perfect!

    Martin & Sarah, Wedding, Liverpool, May 2012
  • We just wanted to say thank you so much for such an amazing performance at our wedding. We put our trust in you to choose the play list and we were not disappointed - every song had our guests on the dancefloor and we couldn't have wished for better entertainment. We couldn't believe the amount of guests who commented on the music, saying it was one of the best weddings they'd been to because the band was so great. Three friends have already been in touch asking for your number because they want you at their wedding, and we won't hesitate in recommending you to anyone looking for a first class band. Thank you for making our wedding reception the best party we have ever been to!

    Jen, Wedding, Ormskirk, Summer 2010
  • The Different Lights’s set at our wedding recently was a roaring success. We booked them after seeing them at another event and were thrilled with the approachability and communication we enjoyed throughout the planning stage. We had a special first dance and the band learnt the song to play for us, which gave us a much more personal experience. They were also good enough to allow a family member to join in with the performance! The song list was broad and fit our requirements and tastes perfectly and went down well with all of the guests. To this day we still get compliments on the band, and have recommended them to many of our friends. We made a great choice in The Different Lights and hope we can use them next time we have an excuse for a party!

    Robert , Wedding, Chester, Autumn 2010
  • We were extremely lucky to have this fabulous band at our wedding. They paid attention to detail so that the songs were perfect for the occasion and personal to us. Our guests strutted their stuff all night and we'll never forget the final song - a Beatles medley culminating in Hey Jude. All of our guests danced in a circle around us in what was a fabulous end to a perfect day. The Different Lights did us proud that night, a number of friends and family still say its the best wedding entertainment they have experienced.

    David, Wedding, Liverpool, Summer 2010
  • We'd really like to thank The Different Lights for making our big day so special. It wouldn't have been the same without them, and all of our guests commented on how great they were. The range of music was excellent, as was the level of energy they created, and we were really impressed that they were more than happy to learn new tracks in order to satisfy specific requests. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Richard, Wedding, Cardiff, Summer 2010
  • We just wanted to thank you for putting on such a wonderful show at our wedding. You kept the dance-floor full and bouncing and created great atmosphere for us! Learning and performing the song for the first dance for us was a brilliant touch and really made it all the more memorable. All of our guests were raving about you and we’re so pleased you could help make our day so perfect. Thank you!

    Dom, Wedding, Ormskirk, Summer 2011
  • Lads – what a performance! We knew you were good as you’d been so strongly recommended, but we didn’t realise how good! Every song you played was a stormer, and our guests loved it – as you could probably tell from all the dancing! You made ours the most enjoyable wedding we’ve ever been to, and we’re so grateful. We’ve already been asked for your contact details by some of our guests, so hopefully we’ll get to see you again soon. Thanks again, you were superb.

    Tom, Wedding, The Cotswolds, Summer 2011
