From The Rolling Stones to Calvin Harris via Oasis and The Foo Fighters, Captain Planet perform the best songs of the last sixty years, and can even replicate the odd classic dance track using samples (have a listen to Calvin Harris – Feel So Close in the Songs tab).

As one of our best-loved wedding bands, Captain Planet have been filling dancefloors at countless parties and weddings at established venues through the South of England, including The Jam Factory, Le Talbooth, Lower Damgate Farm, Ufton Court and Carlton Towers, Kilworth House and Bibury Court.

Captain Planet where fantastic! They sounded great and had a wonderful rapport with the crowd. We could not have asked for a better act! Simon, Wedding, Midlands

“We just wanted to let you know how fantastic Captain Planet were on Saturday night. We had comments all evening from guests of all generations and their ability to fill the dance floor was great! At one point ages ranged from 8 to 84, their song choice was so good. They also had outstanding audience interaction which went down a treat. Please do pass on our thanks to them for an incredibly fun evening.”

Tara, Wedding in Cirencester, June 2018

“Fantastic, so glad we booked Captain Planet. Everyone said how good the band was and I will definitely recommend them. Loved the fact they got everyone up dancing and performed our first dance song really well. Big thanks to them.”

Lisa, Wedding in Hertfordshire, May 2018

“The band were amazing, set up quickly without disturbing any of our guests and the performance was second to none. Our guests and my husband and I really enjoyed it and people commented on how amazing they were. Very professional and they ran on time with our schedule.”

Katie & Darren, Wedding at The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club, February 2018

“We were completely satisfied with Captain Planet - a job well done. The band included wedding guests in their performance which was really good to see. Will definitely recommend to friends in the future.”

Matthew, Wedding in Lancashire, November 2017

“Very professional, great range of songs. All the guests (of differing age ranges) commented on how good they were. Would definitely recommend!”

Maria, Wedding at Dumbleton Hall in Evesham, November 2017

“The band were out of this world, they totally made our wedding! They arrived on bang on time and set up very quietly while our guests were enjoying the reception. Everyone was up and dancing and they even got my mother-in-law and mother to have a dance off which was hilarious! I would recommend them whole heartedly to anyone looking to have a wedding reception full of fun and laughter!”

Ashley, Wedding in Derbyshire, October 2017

“We had such a wonderful evening! Please pass on my thanks to the band, they were fantastic and such good fun! They definitely lived up to our expectations and we will keep them in mind if we need a band again in the future!”

Helena, 18th Birthday Party in St Albans School Sports Pavilion, Sept 2017

“I have used Function Central on three occasions to book bands for family celebrations and they have always been very reliable and efficient. Captain Planet were great - very professional. We had a large range of ages at the party and the dance floor was always full. Guests remarked on how good the band were. A big 'thank you' to the boys.”

Lorna, Richard's 60th Birthday Party at Barnham Broom Hotel in Norfolk, July 2017

“Captain Planet were incredible. Nothing we asked was too much, they learnt our first dance song and played it perfectly, they got everyone dancing until the very end, and everyone has commented on how good they were. Absolutely fantastic band!”

Adam, Wedding in Swarkestone in Derby, July 2017

“Captain Planet did an amazing job at our wedding, everybody loved them and they had everyone dancing all night long. They were extremely friendly and polite too. I would highly recommend them.”

Rosie, Wedding, September 2016

“Please tell Captain Planet how grateful we are for the terrific atmosphere they created! They recognised what the audience wanted and played accordingly. It was a superb evening and we have received really good feedback.”

Jean, Wedding in Buckinghamshire, August 2016

“We were really pleased with the band. All of our guests loved them and they particularly impressed some of our guests who are professional musicians themselves. The band chose great songs to play which catered for a wide audience of varying ages. They got everyone up and dancing straight away and created a brilliant atmosphere. They were also very helpful and informative beforehand and very friendly on the day. We would definitely recommend them to others and in fact, have already passed on their details to one of our guests for his own function.”

Felicity, Wedding in Kettering, August 2016

“I would strongly recommend Captain Planet for their musical ability, being three nice friendly guys and who have a great selection of songs. They fitted in well with the guests chatting with family and friends. So many people commented on how much they enjoyed themselves and how good the band was (this included children right the way up to family members in their 80s). I think the secret was that the boys are excellent musicians and really enjoy what they do which translated to everyone present. To give you an idea, some people at the wedding said they would like to book the band for themselves in the future and some described them as one of the best wedding bands they'd seen. Looking back I don't think we could have achieved any more with any of the originally recommended bands, and now Captain Planet has become one of my 'recommended bands'.”

Dave, Wedding in Kent, July 2016

“That's one way to play a festival!”

Promoter, Parklife Festival, July 2016

“You were incredible. You arrived bang on time and fitted in at the venue without any fuss. Thank you for staying within the noise limits at the venue - the music choices were ideal and you really managed to get everyone up and dancing. We really enjoyed your performance and had so many people commenting on how good you were. A huge thank you to the band for a fantastic evening!”

Warwick, Wedding in Derbyshire, July 2016

“We were really impressed by the band, especially when we really didn't know what they were going to be like! They played excellently and really got us all involved and enjoying ourselves. They really made the evening!”

Kate and Paul, Wedding, Derbyshire, September 2015

“The band were amazing. They arrived in plenty of time. The music was great and they were very professional.”

Amy, Wedding in Nottinghamshire, July 2015

“We were hugely satisfied with our choice. Captain Planet were brilliant. They were very understanding regarding the venue's noise restrictions and with the fact that our speeches over ran and delayed their set. They helped the evening along by announcing the cutting of the cake and did a great job of encouraging guests onto the dance floor (although their tight, charismatic performance did that by itself). The impromptu dance off between the best men, brides/grooms family and groom and bride went down brilliantly and really got the party started. Their set list was great, a really good mix to cater for all guests and the dance floor was filled by the end of the night. On top of that the band were really nice and friendly. All of our guests commented on how good the band were and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone seeking an energetic and talented band for their wedding/event.”

Lewis, Wedding in Hertfordshire, October 2014

“Just sending you this email to say a massive THANK YOU for being so amazing on our wedding day. We cannot thank you enough for your perfect performance on our special day and our guests cannot stop complimenting at how fantastic you all were. You guy's definitely knew how to work the crowd which made for some very hilarious videos that we will always look back on with a smile (including my husband bribing the crowd for a louder cheer at his dodgy dance moves). We will be in touch with Function Central to pass on our gratitude for how special you made our big day!”

Victoria & Rob, Wedding in Northamptonshire, August 2014

“Captain Planet were totally brilliant. They arrived promptly and were just lovely guys to have around. They were fantastic with our guests who literally haven't stopped raving about them since. They were definitely one of the highlights of our day and made our evening memorable!! Johnny and I cannot thank them enough!!”

Jennifer, Wedding in Stroud, May 2014
