    Mandy, Private Party, Nottingham, October 2016
  • Thank you all so much for a great evening on Saturday. You were faced with a real challenge when the marquee we were supplied with wasn't up to the job but you persevered and worked with us to find a solution so that the night could go ahead. I have received so many comments from friends about your brilliance performance, it really made the night. We chose you from your demo online without having seen you perform before and you did not disappoint. We would not hesitate to book you again, although we would make sure that the marquee was watertight!!! Well done all of you and thank you for providing us with a night to remember.

    Catherine, Private Party, Derbyshire, August 2016
  • What a band! We were lucky enough to have this 4 play at our wedding last weekend, and they were amazing. Brilliant vocals, great song choices and the dance floor was constantly full. The DJ set afterwards was similarly well thought out and flowed well. A good few remarks from guests about them being the best band they'd heard at a wedding. Can't recommend them highly enough!

    Joe & Keziah, Wedding, Shropshire, July 2016
  • Just wanted to say a very big thank you for entertaining us last night at Plimhill Barn. The music was fantastic. All the very best for the future.

    Dave, Wedding, Shrewsbury, July 2016
  • Just dropping in on behalf of YMCA Bedfordshire to say thanks for a great evening last Friday. You really helped our first ever Charity Masked Ball go with a real swing. Icing on the cake was you playing our Village People "theme tune". You guys were perfect, you won the room from the first chord and kept the night in full swing. Perfection thanks guys.

    Paul, Charity Ball, Bedford, July 2016
  • They were brilliant! Right from the start, lead singer got in touch about first dance and any requests. Gave me his number for peace of mind. Arrive on time set up on time, cracked on with everything smoothly. Really great songs and energy. Got the guests dancing and loved the surprise for me and my hubby!

I have already had people ask for your details so more bookings will be coming your way. Thanks again your brilliant.

    Rebecca & Greg, Wedding, Nottingham, May 2016
  • We were extremely satisfied with the band.
    It was great to find a band that were willing to play our first dance request which was a sequence of two songs from Back to the Future. They even did the dialogue between the two songs. It really did help make our day.
    The Shenanigans were professional and everyone commented on how good they were as a band.
    We would recommend them to anyone and would hire them again.

    Katrina, Wedding, Worcestershire, March 2016
  • Service from Function Central and The Shenanigans were perfect. Really talented, really good fun and they made my dad relive his youth - he felt like a rock star. Thanks so much! What a fantastic band that made my dad's night really special. They were really professional and courteous. Fabulous varied music to suit all. The family and guests were all really impressed. The female vocalist was out of this world. Loved the band's sense of humour and it was great to see them enjoying it too. Thank you so much, dad hasn't stopped talking about it. Wow.

    Theresa, Private party, Solihull, March 2016
  • We were delighted with The Shenanigans - we picked them as we liked their sound and they had a good selection of songs to suit all age groups. We were a little worried as you never know if the band will sound as good live as the sample you hear on the website but we had no need to worry as the band exceeded our expectations and so many people came up to us to tell us how good they were!!

    Andrew, 21st Party, Nottingham, January 2016
  • The Shenanigans made our evening reception great fun. They got the old and the young up dancing with great music choices for all to enjoy!

    James & Andrada, Wedding, Ware, October 2015
  • We were blown away at how well received the band were at our wedding. They showed up right on time and only took a short time to get ready. Now, three weeks after the event, friends and family are still thanking us for this amazing quartet. The have their own repertoire but will take requests if asked. We cannot recommend this band enough, they were incredible.

    Brendon, Wedding, Gloucestershire, September 2015
  • I just wanted to say that The Shenanigans were fantastic at my wedding, everyone commented on how good they were and that they loved them. Can you please forward on our thanks they made the evening and even managed to get the non-dancers up on the dance floor.

    Charlotte & Graham, Wedding. West Sussex, September 2015
  • We were so pleased with the band - their repertoire was huge and they had a packed dance floor from the moment they started up. There was terrific chemistry between the band members and everyone could tell that they love what they do. We got so many comments from out guests about what a good find they were and how much they enjoyed listening and watching The Shenanigans play. Thank you for adding something extra to our wedding day in such a fun and unique fashion.

They had learnt and played our first dance beautifully and the rest of their sets were top notch! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

    Amanda, Wedding, Worcestershire, May 2013
