“Manhattan were absolutely fantastic - we’re so happy that we booked them for our wedding. They were a pleasure to deal with & everything ran smoothly. Our guests had a wonderful time & I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”

Hayley & Dan, Wedding, Northern Monk Brewery in Leeds, September 2019

“Really friendly band and all very talented. Sounded fantastic and played a whole range of songs that everyone of every age was enjoying. Ideal for a wedding crowd!”

Max & Amber, Wedding, Leeds, July 2017

“Manhattan were absolutely incredible. The perfect band for our wedding! You're always a bit nervous that, only having heard a few demo tracks online before you book an act, they might not be what you want, but Manhattan were everything we could have hoped for and more! Would totally recommend adding the extra vocals and jazz duo to the usual set up, as we did. Gave them even more depth and complexity of sound! So many of our guests came up to us during and after the wedding to say how great the music was. Function Central provided a great and easy service. Always quick to reply to emails and answer our (sometimes quite basic) questions!”

Adam & Amy, Wedding, Brinkburn Priory in Northumberland, August 2019

“Fabulous party band! We will definitely use them again in the future. Many thanks!”

Debs, Private Party, Cheshire, August 2019

“You were a massive hit! The band created anm amazing atmosphere and got everyone on the dancefloor! Highly recommended, whatever your event.”

Leanne, NHS Annual Party, Warrington, Lancashire, July 2019
