What people say Help

  • A lot of our wedding guests have commented on how good the band were, they got everyone up dancing and there was a nice mix of music to suit all the guests!

    Sophie, Wedding at The Bowdon Rooms, Cheshire, May 2017
  • Fantastic band, people were dancing all night! They even did a few songs ad hoc they didn't know when requested! True musicians!

    Caroline, Wedding at Meols Hall, Southport, April 2017
  • The Misfits were absolutely excellent, the dance floor was full ALL night and the singer had an extraordinarily versatile voice. Everyone commented on how brilliant they were and our first dance was absolutely perfect (well, the music was anyway!!) - it was just as we'd imagined it and so fun.

    Thank you too for your patience when the timings didn't go quite according to plan...We realise that the band must play at weddings all the time so thank you for making us feel special - particularly by arranging the first dance music just for us.

    Laura and Richard, Wedding, Cheshire, April 2017
  • The band were in touch in advance to go through everything to put my mind at rest and they arrived bang on time in the evening. At no point was I concerned, which is critical for a bride arranging a wedding! The range of songs were amazing and perfect for us, giving all of our guests songs they knew and wanted to dance to. They sung our first dance which was perfect and we had a lot of comments about how the band were amazing and made the day complete. The dance floor was packed from start to finish - thank you!

    Sarah & Lyndon , Wedding, Stoke-on-Trent, September 2016
  • We just want to say a huge thank you to the Misfits for playing at our wedding this weekend, October 1st. We were absolutely blown away by their performance and did not want it to end! They played two incredible sets which had everyone dancing from start to finish. They were incredibly professional, so much so that even the venue staff commented on how friendly and easy going they were. We paid extra for the brass section which was the icing on the cake - they were worth every penny and more. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and would absolutely hire them again.

    Jane, Wedding, Monmouthshire, October 2016
  • We would like to extend our deepest thanks to the Misfits who really brought our wedding reception to life. Their talent was brilliant, song choices so fresh and great to dance to (everyone was up on their feet), as well as them being so lovely and personable on the day - nothing was too much trouble for them! I would highly recommend them.

    Lucy, Wedding, Cumbria, August 2016
  • The Misfits played our wedding on the 9th July. You were awesome and had the wedding up dancing. Everyone commented about how amazing you were. Would definitely recommend The Misfits!

    Rebecca, Wedding, Cheshire, July 2016
  • Extremely satisfied. The band did a wonderful job and everyone really enjoyed the music. The entertainment quality made our day that much more special.

    Alice and Matthew, Wedding, Cumbria, April 2016
  • We were extremely satisfied with The Misfits from yourselves, they were flexible, so clear, and the singer has an amazing voice.

    Laura, Wedding, Staffordshire, December 2015
  • I was so very impressed. Really tight playing, excellent arrangements, spectacular singing, and a balanced, fun, but interesting set list. Made an excellent occasion even more excellent.

    Peter, Wedding, Derbyshire, December 2015
  • We booked The Misfits for our wedding in December this year and could not believe just how amazing they were! The entire band were really nice, very professional and extremely talented. Every song was played to perfection, very polished and the vocals were stunning. We had the additional brass section and they made it even more amazing, had all our guests up on the dance floor. We would highly recommend The Misfits to anyone.

    Alan, Wedding, Shropshire, December 2015
  • The Misfits were absolutely fantastic! Every single member was professional, polite and amazingly talented. The whole process was stress free and they were a pleasure to work with. All of our guests raved about them and we can't thank them enough for making our wedding even more special!

    Katie, Wedding, Merseyside, December 2015
  • The Misfits played as a 7 piece for our wedding in Derbyshire at the end of November. They were superb, had everyone up on the dance floor for their whole set, we can't recommend they highly enough. Perfect for all occasions that needs quality live music from quality musicians.

    Andrew, Wedding, Derbyshire, November 2015
  • I would like to say a huge thank you to every single one of you that played at our wedding yesterday. The dance floor remained full from the moment you began playing to the moment you stopped (following several encores!) You honestly made our night and the feedback from our guests has been outstanding ❤ we will all be highly recommending your very talented selves for future events!

    Sarah, Wedding, Cheshire, November 2015
  • Guys, thank you so much for playing at our wedding. WHAT A SOUND! We were absolutely bowled over. The lead vocals were mind-blowing, exquisite instrumentals (we were all gobsmacked with the bass and trumpet solos). You seriously helped to make our celebration very special indeed. Thanks!!

    Sue, Wedding, Cheshire, September 2015
  • If we could give more than 10 out of 10 we would! The vocals were incredible. Every single one of the instrumentalists were fabulous, but the trumpeter and the bass player were stand-out remarkable. They were so so tight and so so fun to watch. The sound engineer went out of his way to help us in the morning to run our wedding band (thank you) and also created a fantastic sound for the band. All the amps were first rate quality sounding. Overall the sound was up there with the best acts we have ever heard. As musicians we are quite picky and we were not in the least bit disappointed. We were blown away with the quality of the individuals in the band and as a whole it was a true pleasure to listen to you! We and our guests loved dancing to your tracks! Thank you!

    Paul, Wedding, Wales, August 2015
  • The Misfits were a fantastic band. They got set up with no fuss. Were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. But most importantly, insanely talented. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. They're brilliant!

    Tim, Wedding, Cumbria, May 2015
  • The Misfits were absolutely fantastic. Totally professional from the word go. Responded to emails and telephone calls quickly and efficiently, kept in contact to make sure we were happy, even after they had been paid in advance (!). We had a site visit and Chris made some recommendations and we discussed the type of music we wanted. They were flexible and recommended responding to the audience. How right they were! By a few tracks in, virtually everyone was dancing! Even people who I have never seen dance anywhere! We keep getting told how fantastic the band were. I can't recommend this band enough. You need a band? The Misfits are the way to go. No competition!

    Rosalind, Wedding, Cheshire, September 2014
  • The Misfits were excellent in every aspect of their work. Their pre-party communication was clear and always very helpful. We discussed the music choices and they responded fantastically well. They arrived on time and did their set-up efficiently and tidily. They seem to have very much enjoyed being in our garden and eating the food we gave them, being cheerful and friendly throughout the pre-party time. This fresh, open and friendly attitude continued throughout their performance and whilst they cleared up afterward. they are nice people. As for their act on the night, they proved our choice dead right. They are all very good performers, and the sound they made when they have the brass section and their excellent female vocalist was terrific. The dance floor was full throughout all their sessions. Everyone at the party told us how much they had enjoyed the music!

    Colin, Wedding Anniversary, Cheshire, June 2014
  • Thanks for coming to play at Mum's surprise 60th she absolutely loved it.. (and so did I!!)x

    Sarah, 60th Birthday Party, Lancashire, February 2014
  • The duet in the day was fab, just enough chilled background music without been over powering and the band in the evening were great, fab tunes to make a perfect end to an amazing day. It was one wild party. Thank you

    Tim, Wedding, Shropshire, September 2013
  • A MASSIVE thank you for playing at my 21st a few weeks back, you were absolutely amazing and definitely made my party! I can't thank you enough!!

    Verity, 21st Birthday Party, Yorkshire, September 2013
  • The Misfits were great at our wedding in June. Great music helped create a great atmosphere. Lovely guys too, highly recommend them.

    Charlie, Wedding, Shropshire, June 2012
  • We booked The Misfits for our wedding. They were really good and gave a bit of atmosphere to our afternoon when the guests were all chilling out.

    Sarah, Wedding, Shropshire
  • We hired The Misfits for our wedding reception on July 3rd 2010. We booked the 7 piece band and the reception was at Delbury Hall. The band arrived and set up with minimal fuss after our meal. Their music and singing is fantastic with a very professional approach. Everyone loved the band and we even had very positive comments from a number of professional musicians that were amongst our guests. We'd highly recommend The Misfits to anyone looking for a great mix of live music from a very professional group!

    Renee, Wedding, Shropshire
  • Thank you so much for a fantastic evening that The Misfits provided for my daughter's wedding on the 11th April at Madeley Court Mill. The music was brilliant and I had so many enquiries from guests as to who you were as they enjoyed your music so much. You are a very talented group of musicians and can play such a range of music. It was truly fantastic and we had such a great time. I will recommend you to all of my friends. Thank you so very much.

    Gill, Wedding, Shropshire
  • I have been to several weddings over the years and have seen many bands. Two months ago I was in the audience on Jools Hollands live music show and I can honestly say that the music I heard that night didn't come close to the sound of the 'The Misfits' playing at a good friend's wedding. Anyone looking for a fantastic live jazz/soul band then I would strongly recommend them.

    Susan, Wedding, Cheshire
  • The Misfits played at our wedding in September and they were BRILLIANT! Their music and extremely talented vocalist gave us a truly fantastic evening, with amazing and actually, quite brilliant music. They created exactly the atmosphere we wanted.

    Dave, Wedding, Cheshire
  • The Misfits played at our wedding and were fantastic! Not only did they have very little notice, they were helpful and went out of their way to accommodate our requirements. On the night, they were professional, arrived on time, set up without any fuss and started playing really great music! All my guests loved their style, some even made song requests. The guys were very friendly and enthusiastic, and VERY talented. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.

    Helen, Wedding, Cheshire
