What people say Help

  • The Northern Rigs were absolutely brilliant - they sang a great mix of songs and later DJ'd a fab set. Everyone was on their feet all night and I am really pleased as they really helped make the event!

  • I hired them for our ceremony to play our favourite songs as we walked down the aisle and signed the register and they did a great job. Have recommended them to all my friends.

  • Would definitely recommend The Northern Rigs, they really made our day special and memorable. If you want the perfect accompaniment to your wedding celebrations, get these guys to do it! Excellent ceremony music and superb evening entertainment all in one package at a great price.
