The quality and depth of their sound, including the vocals, was stunning. Many of their covers sounded as good as the originals! Katie & Andrew, Wedding, Hertfordshire

Perry, HM Forces Event, September 2018

“I just wanted to say thank you so much to you & your band for performing at our wedding at the Blue Pigeons, Worth (Kent). We were really grateful that you were able to accommodate our song requests, especially our first dance - 'Everlong' by Foo Fighters. The slow start had everyone fooled - it was great to jump around with our mates! It was almost a shame the evening was so warm, otherwise I think there would have been more people inside, but it was great being able to hear you guys outside as well! Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks - you helped make our wedding truly memorable.”

Once the booking was confirmed we dealt directly with the band to discuss specific song requests; they were really easy to chat to about our requirements and very accommodating - especially as we wanted Everlong by Foo Fighters as our first dance. Millennium Bug were amazing and got our guests up dancing (well - jumping around!). I spent most of the evening on the dance floor - Millennium Bug made our wedding truly memorable.”

I can't recommend them highly enough.”
