What people say Help

  • Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to your band for an incredible job! Everyone has been saying that you were the best band they’ve ever heard at a wedding and they loved it! We certainly loved it – and it was great to see everyone dancing so much! Thanks again also for playing the first dance so well, I think people had no idea it was actually live! You made our day even more memorable so thank you so much for playing a part in it.

    Lauren and Dan, Wedding, Guildford, 2016
  • The Starlighters were great fun and got everyone on the dance floor so that we danced the night away. They played a good mixture of songs that the young and slightly older could all get into. Lots of guests asked how we had heard of them and we have all ready passed your details on to some. Thank you for a great evening and for making our wedding day unforgettable for the right reasons.

    Charlotte, Wedding, Worcestershire, May 2016
  • Can I just say the biggest thank you to you guys for playing. You were truly amazing, your demo CD does not do you justice. I pride myself in the fact that I have had the chance to work with some of the busiest working session musicians around, and with some of the best show bands in the country, and you guys were easily better and more professional than most of the guys I have ever worked with. Your band sound was stunning, the first dance was amazing. You guys were just incredible. God has gifted you all with some amazing talents, and I feel very lucky to have shared the happiest day of my Wife and I's life with you!!

    Groom, Wedding, September 2014
  • You guys were incredible and everybody commented on how great the band were. We would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone needing a band as you were absolutely fantastic! Thanks again!

    Tim, Wedding, Suffolk, June 2014
  • The Starlighters were professional, flexible, helpful but above all gave killer evening entertainment! They kept people on the dance floor the whole evening with a huge mix of tunes. We loved every minute and will especially remember the first dance, that they were able to mash up some Jennifer Hudson with Whitney Houston, so we could perform our first dance. Thanks to everyone who played!

    Phil and Sophie, Wedding, High Wycombe, 2012
