What people say
They were fabulous, don't hesitate to book these guys!
We booked the Mod Cons for our wedding and they are absolutely awesome. Highly recommended.
We were both amazingly satisfied with the act, they were a lovely bunch of nice, friendly, helpful and easy going guys, who went out of their way with some demands of the groom! More importantly however their playing was fantastic, great sound, great repertoire, great energy and added the finishing touch to a great atmosphere and a great night!
I just want to thank you for such a great night, you were amazing and have had no end of compliments. Thank you so much again and everybody thought you guys were fantastic.
The guys were amazing - they were professional and efficient at setting up, ensuring the sound was spot on before starting to play. Once they started playing....WOW! Most bands have a few songs that they cant quite pull off... None of that with these guys, they nailed every song and had people on the dance floor all night long! Cant recommend them highly enough!
The band were absolutely superb. They were quick and professional in setting up, played excellent music all night and seemed like really nice people. I couldn't rate them highly enough!
We were both delighted with the quality of the band - they played all of the songs we wanted to hear and made our first dance really special. All of our guests enjoyed their energy and interaction with the 'audience' and we are really pleased that they kept everyone dancing throughout the night. Every member of the band spoke to me personally, they were really friendly guys who enjoyed their night too. I would definitely recommend this superb band to friends and anyone who wants an excellent wedding band.
Thank you so much for your absolutely fantastic performance at our wedding last week. The choice of songs and execution was exceptional and you had a full dance floor for both sets!! You had people dancing who we never expected to see grooving and engaged really well with the guests. Thank you for doing our first dance, we were so pleased with how well you performed this. Everyone kept telling us how amazing the band are and we kept proudly agreeing. Thank you. 5*
Big thank you to The Mod Cons! Great music all night, all our guests were so complimentary about how good you guys were. We absolutely loved our first dance song.
Just to say the band were absolutely superb at our wedding the other night! Everyone was up dancing, and they were lovely guys! All the best!
Fantastic band! Very professional - looked great, sounded great, thoroughly pleasant group of lads would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thanks for making our wedding party go off with a bang last night, your were fabulous, everyone was raving about you! Top band and top lads.
I was thrilled with these guys, they were fantastic and I cannot praise them enough! They made my night and were a superb and brilliant band with brilliant music. There was a great atmosphere and everyone was dancing until their last song which was great. I wouldn't hesitate to book them or recommend to anyone!
We booked The Mod Cons 18 months ago for our wedding day on 1st August 2015, having researched for hours for the perfect band with a varied repertoire and fantastic reviews. I was over the moon to learn that they were available and they were one of the things we were looking forward to the most out of the entire day. The lads were absolutely fantastic and had everybody up on the dance floor from the first until the very last song! We had so many comments about how fantastic they were. Having been brought up to 60's music it was great to hear some of the classics and they were even kind enough to allow my dad to sing a couple of songs which he really appreciated! I would thoroughly recommend this band to anybody. Really lovely guys...I am so glad we booked them. Thank you lads!
They were fabulous it felt like we were at a gig having a great time. Guests commented on how good they were and there whole attitude was fantastic. They really made our day!
Hi guys, just wanted to say how incredible you were at our wedding. Your kindness and professionalism really made our day. Thank you for everything, so many of our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed your performance.
A huge thank you to The Mod Cons for playing at our wedding reception on June 13th 2015. From start to finish you were absolutely amazing and made the night. Everyone who attended commented on how good you were and I have no hesitations in recommending you to anyone I know that needs a band! As well as performing our first dance 'Talk Tonight' acoustic, every song you played was brilliant. Top lads and a top band. Thanks again! Also a big thanks to Function Central. Professional throughout and always responded promptly to any questions we had. Would recommend to anyone in the future.
We were completely satisfied with the band in every respect! We booked them to play two 1 hour sets at our wedding reception, the first as the Day Trippers (Beatles tribute) and the second as the Mod Cons (Indie/Rock covers). The Beatles set was outstanding, a thouroughly convincing and musical performance with a varied song list exactly as requested. The Indie/Rock set was also excellent, again adhering to our requested set list, and really got the party rocking! The band were highly professional in both their performance and general conduct. They also ran an excellent disco for us, again closely meeting our specified requests. Overall, they were absolutely brilliant and made our day; we can't recommend them highly enough!
We booked The Mod Cons for our wedding at Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire. They were absolutely excellent and made our evening. They did a set as their Beatles tribute act 'Day Trippers', and a set of covers as Mod Cons. The guests thought they were fantastic. Function Central were also extremely professional and easy to deal with, keeping in conact wth us and answering any questions we had really quickly. Thoroughly recommend Function Central, and absolutely recommend Day Trippers/Mod Cons.
The band were amazing! They performed 2 sets for us and had everyone on the floor dancing. A real mixture of oldies and new, that fitted all our age groups at our wedding. I don't think there was one song I didn't dance to! The band were very professional and friendly, a really nice bunch of guys.
Almost everyone I have spoken to about the wedding has mentioned how much they loved the band and it was obvious anyway from the packed (and sweaty!!) dance-floor from start to end. I only made one song request and then left the rest for the band to decide on and they did a great job at matching the right songs to the atmosphere. They were happy to go along with any timing arrangements we requested and were pretty laid back about having to wait a little longer than expected for set-up on the day due to us running a little late. We certainly recommend.
Thank you for playing at our wedding on 27th December - you helped to make our day the amazing day that it was! You were friendly and easy going and not to mention super talented! Better than we could have imagined!! The dance floor was full from the sound check to the final song and the guests did not stop telling us how impressed they were.
The band was fantastic. They arrived an hour before the party to set up and the performance throughout the evening was first class. We had a large party of c150 people of mixed ages and we have had such great feedback about the party and just how good the band were. Guests were dancing to the end. We particularly wanted the sixties set and they exceeded our expectations. Steve, You were awesome!! We would highly recommend this band.
Put simply - exceptional! Many thanks for making the evening – Ian and I really appreciate your efforts. If anyone wants a reference just ask.
We honestly could not have asked for more from the band - they were even better than we hoped they would be! They were friendly and easy going and not to mention extremely talented. They definitely helped to create an amazing atmosphere and joined in with the fun of the night!

They were superb. We couldn't have been any happier with the band and their performance.
Hey guys, just wanted to say a big thanks for playing at our wedding. Everyone was really surprised by how good you all were and kept commenting over the next few days about how awesome the band were. It definitely wouldn't have been the same with just a DJ!! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone else. Thanks again!!
I just wanted to thank you again for being so good at the wedding, I'll be talking to the bosses to try and get you booked for a function and hopefully you'll stay over and have a few pints! Swear to god you guys were f***ing awesome!! Thanks again.
As a musician myself I was a little nervous booking a band over the net having only heard sound clips, even though those clips suggested a really good band, but I really needn't have worried at all. The musicianship was superb (every song was played with energy, soul and class) and everyone was up and dancing right from the first song (Town Called Malice by The Jam). The important thing was how much everyone enjoyed the Mod Cons, but I should also say that they were very accommodating in terms of late changes to timings, extremely personable and very much keen to add even more to our special day by making the music just as special.
I would recommend the Mod Cons to anybody who wants a fantastic live band at their wedding, with the kind of music that will get everybody dancing all night and the kind of attitude and professionalism that will take away any stresses and allow the bride and groom to relax fully just at the point when they are finally able to do so.
We found the Mod Cons very easy to work with - a great set of guys. We just let them choose their own music and what a success. The dance floor was full all night and they created a fantastic atmosphere for the whole night. Many people have asked about the band since the wedding.
Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for playing at our wedding at 24 May... everyone got on to the dancefloor straight away and danced all night! All of our guests commented how fantastic you were and what a great atmosphere it was. Thanks also for being so accommodating and letting my sister and my brother-in-law sing a song with you!! Our photographer took a couple of really good pics so I'll tag you in those or send them over to you. Thanks again guys!!
Last year we booked the Mod Cons for a 60th Birthday Bash. The party had a 60's theme and the music played was solely from that decade. Such is their repertoire that they had no difficulty doing three sets, and some as the last set was extended. We can fully recommend them for any kind of celebration. Fine musicians and perhaps even more important the nicest lads you could meet. The sort no parent would mind their daughter bringing home.
These guys are brilliant and everyone at our wedding thought they were great!!! Highly recommend them.
Just a quick message to say thank you so much for playing our wedding last night, you were amazing. I can't tell you the number of people who said to me how impressed they were and asked where the hell had I found such a great band from. Anyone who reads this and is thinking about booking you I would like to say it would be a decision you would not regret. On a personal level I'd also like to say what bloody nice blokes you are to. Many thanks lads.
WOW! Absolutely amazing band! We had The Mod Cons for our wedding in August 2013 and they were amazing musicians, professional, kind, and couldn't do enough for us. They played to the crowd and had everyone dancing from start to finish. Everyone commented on how good they were and it speaks volumes that everyone at the end was shouting for 'ONE MORE SONG!' I wouldn't hesitate to book them again for a party or event. Thank you lads!
Extremely happy with the band, they made the night! Everybody has been commenting on how good they were, we 3 or 4 people who would like to book them for their own functions in the future. The quality and choice of the music was perfect they had everyone from the kids too our grandparents dancing. Would definitely recommend the Mod Con's to everyone. Could you please pass on our apologies to the band, as it was such a busy night we did not have chance to thank to the band properly and we would have liked too!
We wanted to say a huge thanks to The Mod Cons. You guys were fantastic and helped ensure that our guests danced all night at our Wedding which is exactly what we wanted. From the vocals, music, choice of songs, equipment and style everything worked like a dream. One of the highlights was everyone singing along to your last track on the night. A huge thank you!
We were extremely happy with this act. They played a wide variety of songs, which appealed to all age groups. We had many comments from the guests to say how good they were as they were pitch perfect during every song and the harmonies were fantastic. The band were definitely money well spent and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
The Mon Cons were fabulous - they got everyone up dancing, of all age groups, which is exactly what we wanted. Please thank them also for having our first dance on their ipod as they promised they would. Sorry I didn't get to thank them in person on the day. Function Central was a very easy company to deal with and I would certainly recommend it to our friends.
The Mod Cons were so brilliant that every single one of my guests told me how amazing they were. They were one of the reasons my wedding day was so perfect, They were lovely friendly guys, they looked amazing and sounded even better.
The Mod Cons were amazing. Great look, great sound, great response. Our guests commented on how brilliant they were and they kept the dancefloor full.
Just a note to say how much everyone, of all ages, who attended my wife’s 60th birthday Party yesterday evening were knocked out by the quality of the performance. The party had a 60’s theme and we couldn’t have found a group of more talented musicians /singers to help create the atmosphere we were looking for. Not only are they so talented they are also four of the most charming and helpful lads you could ever wish to meet, they even gave a hand to the caterers in bringing the buffet food out.
Anyone reading this don’t hesitate just book them we can guarantee you will not regret it. They are so talented that if you want they also have a good repertoire of songs they perform from a more recent era, Oasis etc.. Wedding, birthday party or Corporate they are sure to fit your bill.
Just a note to say the band were absolutely brilliant on Saturday they were courteous, patient when we got a bit behind schedule and they sounded amazing they really made the night everyone I spoke to said how brilliant they were I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone I hope that they go onto bigger things because they absolutely deserve to I cannot thank them enough.
The Mod Cons are a fabulous, young, energetic band who made sure that our evening reception was brought alive. People constantly commented on how good the band was and the fact that everyone was dancing all night. Thanks!
We hired The Mod Cons for the night of the 18th December 2010 for our companies combined moving party and celebrating 20 years of trading. The country at the time, if you can recall, was experiencing some pretty bad snow conditions and we really didn’t think that a lot of people, who were travelling from all over the country, would be able to attend. Thankfully, we had a full house. The guys from the band were at the venue early on in the evening, getting ready to entertain us and they didn’t let us down. Everyone remarked at how good they were. Usually at parties, it takes a few pints of “dutch courage” for people to get up and dance, but this wasn’t the case with The Mod Cons, they certainly had everyone from all ages up on the dance floor.
We booked The Mod Cons for our wedding in August this year, the chaps not only looked the part of young sixties band, straight out of Liverpool, but with an authentic sound we had the dance floor fully all night. Our guest’s are still talking about the wedding three months on, the band deserves much of the credit for playing such a good set. Good luck to band, and please pass on our thanks again.
The Mod Cons were fantastic, they played a cracking set of tunes and everyone commented how great they were. They capped off our special day superbly. All the service received through Function Central was very good and the band were really patient and pleasant.
All praise to the Mod cons! Just to say the guys were amazing - they coped superbly with a tight playlist due to the late running of dinner and got everyone on their feet. Pacy, slick, charismatic - and lovely chaps to boot - quote me at will!
Yes, we did all enjoy the Mod Cons when they visited us recently, we were pleasantly surprised by the level of performance which was delivered with an enthusiasm that was infectious. The lads interacted well with the crowd & kept the dance floor buzzing. In addition they are a thoroughly nice bunch who were a pleasure to deal with. The best accolade I can give them is that we will be looking to book them again in the future! As for booking through Function Central, again no issues, a simple, straightforward exercise. An easy to understand contract & the promo bumph provided was of good quality & received in a timely manner. In a nutshell, the way all bookings should be!
We absolutely loved The Mod Cons and so did our guests. Everyone asked where we had found them and if we had seen them before - we hadn't, and even after we'd booked them we had our doubts as we hadn't actually seen them, we'd only heard the demos on the website. It was definately a risk worth taking and anyone reading this with any doubts, don't have, go ahead and book them! They were worth every penny. One of our guests commented that she had never been to a wedding where 5 middle aged guys were the only ones on the dancefloor!!! Yes, men and no women, they were that good the men who like their music were up dancing on thier own! Our wedding did have a bit of a "Mod" feel to it, which the band topped off superbly - they looked the part and sounded excellent!!! They were lovely friendly guys and can't wait until we have another big party as they will be top of the list to book. Mr & Mrs Waite, West Midlands.
The Mod Cons were absolutely brilliant! Everybody who was at our wedding has commented on how good they were. They really did all the classic songs that they covered the justice they deserved. A really nice bunch of lads who should go far in the music industry. They made our wedding even more perfect.
The Mod Cons, what can I say, apart from they were phenomenal, considering they are all young guys and born so far from the sixties era you would think they had been around in the sixties. They were note and word perfect. Suited and Booted, in fact when they first walked out on the stage and started singing you would think the Beetles had reformed. It was a fantastic gig and the guys were all very polite and professional and a joy to deal with. All of our guests at the wedding thought they were fantastic and constantly asked us where we had found these guys. We wish The Mod Cons all the very best for their future and thank them from the heart for making our special day perfect, they were the icing on the cake and a credit to their age group and we would strongly recommend The Mod Cons to anyone out there looking for a great band. Cheers to Function Central thanks for all of your help and hope to do business again in the future.
We used the Mod-Cons for a recent birthday celebration and they certainly lived up to their reputation! We wanted an authentic 60s sound and look and they provided exactly that and more. They looked and sounded great and were totally professional, punctual, polite, well organised and accommodated all our requests. The dance floor was packed all night as our guests relived their miss-spent youth! People are still talking about the band weeks later and several wanted to book them for their own parties – which I would definitely recommend!
The Mod Cons were fantastic, there really are not enough words to use (speechless).We booked the band for our wedding at Ruthin Castle on 26th July 2009. The staff at the castle told us afterwards that they were the best band they had heard in a long time, the band was well dressed and looked the part from the moment they arrived. All the guests at our wedding commented and were not off the dance floor. We requested Sweet Home Alabama for our first dace which is not something on their play list; however it was fantastic, we were so pleased! I did not have to worry about anything once we booked the band; the date was set and everything in place, very easy and a huge weight off my mind. All correspondence done by e-mail and phone.Thank you so much for making our day that little bit extra special.
The Peterhead public absolutely loved the guys. So much so we would like them to return next year. This is a band that should go places.
They are leaking energy out of their pores and into the stratosphere.This band are one of the most promising bands we have seen. Superb!
Absolutely brilliant, top performance and lovely lads. Thanks for making my wedding reception extra special.
You guys were absolutely fantastic! A wonderful night enjoyed by all, you really made our wedding night!! Thank you
