“The band were absolutely phenomenal. We knew they were going to be great from the videos and clips on the website, but they don’t even do them justice! Everyone we’ve spoken to since has commented on how great they were, with many of our guests saying they were the best wedding band they’ve ever seen! Communication with the band and function central was also excellent. Couldn’t fault any of it!”

“The act were brilliant, covering old and new for all ages. They interacted with the crowd well and knew their audience. Had everyone bouncing all night!”

10

“The agency were very helpful giving us useful information and guidance through the booking process and were easy to contact. The band contacted us a few weeks before the event to finalise details regarding wedding music such as first dance etc. They arrived in good time and set up without any fuss. The quality of the sound was excellent and everyone loved the music that they played. It was New Year's Eve and the band stayed on to enjoy themselves until after 2am on New Year's Day! A great time was had by all.”

10

“Masterblaster were amazing! The bass player/DJ called us a few weeks before the wedding to talk about our set list and gave us his email and contact number. They were so helpful and as a band they are incredible! The two lead singers were amazing and had everyone up on the dance floor. We even had an acoustic set during dinner and all of our guests loved this. I would totally recommend them. If you like a little bit of soul/funk mixed in with your favourite garage set then this is the band for you!”

“Masterblaster were absolutely fantastic. We were blown away with their sound. All our guests kept complimenting us on the band and a few people asked for their details that night!”

10

“Masterblaster were fantastic. The dance floor was packed all night, at one point all guests were on their feet dancing. They were friendly and easy to communicate with. The band was very easy to book via Function central. Would 100% recommend the band to anyone who wanted to have a fabulous party at their wedding.”

10

“We absolutely loved Masterblaster who played at our wedding on 12 August 2017. In the run up to the wedding we were in constant contact with the band who could not have been nicer. They gave us helpful suggestions and listened to exactly what it was we wanted. On the evening we could have not loved the band anymore. They were absolutely unreal and so professional. They made our wedding, I can 100% say it would not have been the same without them. Everyone was on the dance floor all night, including us! All of our friends and family have raved about the band and many people have said that they were the best live band they've ever seen and that's from some of our friends who regularly watch live music. Thank you again so much!”

“Thanks so much - you guys were amazing. So many of our guests have said how fantastic you all were and that you made the evening go from great to unforgettable!! We will most certainly be recommending you to everyone we know. Thanks again.”

10

“We were thrilled with the performance and the interaction before the event. The band were so helpful taking requests and were a pleasure to work with. Not to mention they sounded fantastic!”

10

“Thank you all so much for the fantastic performance at our wedding last week. You had a great mix of songs and really got the party going! Also really appreciate you learning our first song which wasn't on your play list. One of the best bits was when you invited our little flower girls up to the stage with you - they loved it! Lots of our guests have said you were excellent & one of the best wedding bands they had seen. Thanks again for a great night!”

10

“Masterblaster were truly friendly and professional throughout, from first contact to our special day itself. We were able to be selective in picking our favourite songs and even arranged with them to perform our first dance song a song not on their set list. Their version of the song was amazing and really started the evening off, especially when performed live by these truly talented artists. Their music appealed to all ages even our older guests were rocking the dancefloor! The night itself was magical and the dancefloor was full from start to finish exactly what we wanted at our wedding. Many of our guests told us how fantastic they thought the band were and what a great atmosphere they created. Masterblaster made our wedding reception a truly memorable evening, and we would whole heartedly recommend them.”

10

“Just to let you know that Masterblaster were 'OUT OF THIS WORLD!' They were great. There wasn't one person so far which, apart from commenting about Tom and I (the bride and groom), their comments were followed next by how great the band was! The dance floor was packed from the second they said their first word to the very end. They kept in contact about the venue, timings, songs etc and were great and so easy to speak to. I would recommend them any time! The service as a whole was excellent! You were so helpful and polite. I was so glad I found your company! Thanks again.”

10

“I think the whole organisation of the band was excellent. The band were top quality, the dance floor was full at all times when they played and I have only heard positive comments from people who attended. I would definitely consider booking them again for any future events we might hold. Thanks for all your help.”

10

“We would recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic band.”

10

“They were a delight to work with in the months building up to our wedding: super friendly, helpful and versatile - such great people. On the day they didn't put a foot wrong... turned up nice and early, got set up in stupidly quick time and had so much energy throughout the live band sets and DJ sets. They did a great job of our first dance and from minute one until even now, we have been getting raving remarks about them from all our guests - probably why the dance floor was packed all night.”
