“Fantastic band and excellent communication. The music was a very important part of our wedding and we took a long time researching different acts. We chose Cerone because their lead singer had a fantastic voice and great energy. They were in touch with us throughout the lead up to the wedding and were extremely helpful. If you want a full dance floor with music for all ages then Cerone is the band for you!”

10

“The evening was a roaring success - a truly magical evening in a wonderful location. The dance floor was full and the atmosphere was fantastic!”

10

“We're very happy with the band Cerone. They turned up promptly with plenty of time to set up, soundcheck etc. All band members were very laid back, friendly and very professional. They delivered a great performance. Especially our first dance performed by the band was most definitely a highlight. The lead singer was immense! The agency we're pleasant to deal with always on hand to ask anything and always responded to emails promptly. Would highly recommend.”

“Band were fantastic!”

10

“A good night was had and Cerone are a good party band which everybody enjoyed.”

10

“Very satisfied. Before the event, they contacted us to confirm our preferences and to ask about how the day would be scheduled. They didn't leave any detail to chance, which was very reassuring. On the day, they were very prompt to arrive and didn't object when the timings overran and they had to wait around for the wedding breakfast to finish. The acoustic set they performed was exceptionally good, and it really showcased the singers voice. The sets proper went down really well with our guests and it was a shame they had to finish! All in all, we were extremely pleased with the band and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.”

10

“Booked Cerone for our wedding 23/09/2017 absolutely fantastic. Did songs that everyone knew, got them up dancing. They sang our first dance which was lovely, absolutely 5*”

10

“Really good singers and they got people up and dancing. Sang my first dance which was lovely and all the other songs were fantastic too!”

10

“We couldn't be happier with the performance from Cerone at our wedding. The band performed 3 40 minute sets as I had requested. We requested 'Your Song' as our first dance and it was performed excellently. They went on to play 3 x 40 minute sets. This was a mix of music but really kept the guests on their feet dancing. They sounded amazing and had a really good energy. Lots of the guests commented afterwards on how good they are. I would definitely recommend them.”

10

“Cerone were just fabulous. Paul was in touch beforehand to ask if we wanted any particular style/songs. He was lovely to work with and the performance on the night was outstanding. Very professional, really interactive and amazing musicians - we danced all night! The DJ service was excellent too - the perfect tone for the reception and canap. I would recommend you go for Cerone! X”

“I just want to pass on how thrilled we were with Cerone last night, they really made our reception ! Thanks so much.”

10

“Cerone were great, good communication with them prior to the event, and they included all my requests during the performance. They were very friendly but professional throughout listening to my concern over sound levels. They looked great and ensured that they delivered what I was expecting - nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend them as many of the party guests commented on their ability and the great voice of the lead singer (who happened to be standing in that night as the usual lead was ill). Wonderful performance by all and would certainly book them again.”

10

“From first communicating with the band through until their last song, they were brilliant and very professional. Everything was seamless and the band was lovely. All of our guests praised the band and me and my husband really couldn't have asked for anything better. They had an amazing singer, and everything sounded great. They created a great atmosphere and got everyone on the dance floor. Really, really happy.”

“Cerone were excellent. They were very professional from start to finish. They played a really good range of music that suited all of our guests and everybody was up dancing for the whole time. We would recommend them to anyone who asked!”

10

“We had Cerone come up and play our Wedding in the Lake District, we couldn't have had a better experience. The band contacted us a few weeks before the wedding and went through everything they needed and everything they could offer us, we discussed playlists, first dance, set times etc. The guys arrived during the speeches of the wedding and waited patiently for us to let them in and set up which they did quickly and quietly. The sound, musicianship and atmosphere was fantastic. The singer blew everyone away and the amount of comments we got on the band was unbelievable. I couldn't recommend them highly enough, thanks to all the guys!”

10

“Cerone were totally brilliant, from beginning to end! Each song was polished and they were happy to include some special requests in their set. Cerone sounded even better than the recordings we'd first heard on the website, and they looked amazing too! So refreshing to have a female lead singer. Our guests thought that they were superb and there was dancing all evening. We've had dozens of friends getting in touch since, asking about the band and saying that they were the best wedding band they'd heard. We agree! Thanks for making our special day even better.”

10

“They were fantastic! Very professional! They definitely got the dance floor pumping.”

10

“When planning for our big day, The evening entertainment was very important to us and Cerone definitely did not disappoint! They were professional, helpful and accommodating, making time to learn a completely new song (that happened to be the groom's favourite) to add especially to there playlist for the evening. We would highly recommend Cerone, who played a fantastic selection of songs brilliantly to keep all of our wedding guests not wanting to leave the dancefloor from start to finish!”

10

“I just wanted to give some feedback as so many people spoke to me on the evening of the wedding and afterwards, saying how brilliant they thought the band were! Every song sounded like the original and the dancefloor was full all night long. They were so professional and pleasant. I booked them after they were recommended to me and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any function in the North West of England/Wales. Thank you for making the wedding evening so special!”

10
