“Function Central were really easy to work with, and Party Up were insane - so good. All our guests loved it - thanks so much!”

10

“After looking at A LOT of bands for our wedding, Party Up stood head and shoulders above the competition. We are performing musicians ourselves and around half of our wedding guests were musicians and music teachers too. We knew we needed an outstanding band to impress our guests and keep everyone on the dance floor. We were so excited in the build up to the wedding knowing that Party Up were booked, and on the night they blew us all away. The sheer talent, musicianship and professionalism of the band wowed everyone and we have had so many people asking where we found them because they were so impressed. We are grateful to Party Up for travelling so far to play for us and we did not stop dancing all night. They well and truly made our wedding an unforgettable day! We would also like to mention that our line-up had James on lead vocals rather than Liff, and what an incredible singer he is! His personality kept the room on their feet and him being on lead vocals was a fantastic surprise! We are hoping to catch you guys playing again at some point.”

“Party Up played at our wedding at the West Mill, Derby. They were first class, I'd describe them as fresh, funky and intuitive. We gave the band a list of our preferred music from their repertoire, not only did they do this with class but they threw in a few songs that they knew the crowd would love, they clearly noticed a few wedding party members in Kilts and banged out a classic by the Proclaimers! Just brilliant... I did not leave the dance floor apart from to get a drink or cool down, they were just amazing. If the pain in my feet was anything to go by the next day then I'd say the band nailed it.”

10

“Our experience definitely follows the other very good reviews of Party Up on the Function Central website. We were looking for a soul band that would play a broad, crowd pleasing set but with a soul feel and that's exactly what we got. Everything was incredibly professional from start to finish. The band were very easy to get hold of in the weeks running up to the event and they arrived and set-up with no problems at all. The performance itself blew everyone away and had everyone dancing for the duration of both 1 hour sets. The singer and horn section (we paid for an extra trumpet player) immediately stood out, but the other members of the band are also brilliant and every song packed the punch you want to get the crowd going. We can definitely confirm that they sound as good (if not better) in real life than the videos/recordings available on the website and facebook. The band also very kindly allowed the groom and best man to use one of the guitar amps and the mics to do a quick 15 minute set. This was no trouble to them at all - we even had a quick soundcheck.”

10

“We booked Party Up after reading their very good reviews online. I always wanted a live band with a brass section too. Their playlist and videos were our kind of music, old school soul/funk with classic wedding music that works for all generations! Rich was available to contact and speak through the day, timings, playlists, etc over the phone. He listened to our wants and advised well from their experience. We absolutely loved the band on the night and all of our guests were up dancing! I especially did not leave the floor. They even surprised us with additional songs we had requested in the off-chance they could play as we loved the songs and weren't even our first dance!!! Professional, entertaining, great music! They were very good value for what they offered too with a DJ in between their live sets!”

10

“Our guests really enjoyed the band and everything went well!”

10

“In one word OUTSTANDING, wow wow wow the band were amazing as always but for some reason sounded even better this year, just brilliant. The staff absolutely loved the set the singing and the sound coming out of those speakers were amazing, but for me the star of the night was John, oh my word never realised how fantastic he was on those drums, he killed it, what a talent. Thanks for always turning up for Sky, you really are a talented bunch of guys and never disappoint - we could of listened to you all night! Have a lovely Christmas with your family and see you next year but this time in a new venue.”

10

“The band were absolutely fantastic. I was really worried about finding the perfect act but Party Up surpassed all my expectations. My friends and family had the best time because of the band!”

10

“Party Up played at our wedding in Sept. They were incredible from start to finish. Rave reviews from all guests and even our suppliers commented that they were the best band they had seen on the wedding circuit, asking us for contact details for the band. We added extra brass an an extra female vocalist. We were not disappointed and she was an excellent addition to the band. Thank you for helping make our wedding so special. If you're looking for a band to play at your event look no further. Party Up are the best by miles.”

10

“Party Up were absolutely incredible. They judged exactly the right vibe for the wedding and had everybody up dancing. Our guests are still talking about them, even weeks later!”

10

“What a band! Party Up are undoubtedly the best function band I've ever seen perform. We searched long and hard for the right band and ended up going above budget to get them. Every penny was worth it. Dealing with Function Central was good and transparent and liaising with the band just before the wedding was easy and helpful. The band's set list was perfect - brilliant soulful music - and the band's performance was immaculate. Everyone at the wedding couldn't stop telling us how good the band were. The dance floor was full throughout. I honestly can't recommend them highly enough. Don't hesitate to book them if you have the chance!”

10

“We loved Party Up! They were an incredible band and really brought the house down during our wedding. Ashley and I looked for ages for a good band, and once we saw Party Up on Function Central's website we were sold - and they certainly did not disappoint during our event. On top of playing during our reception, we also had Max and Lifford play three songs during our ceremony - which was awesome. They agreed to do this within 3-weeks of the event and their flexibility was thoroughly appreciated. I'd strongly recommend Party Up to any of my friends organising a wedding or event - they rocked!”

10

“Party Up exceeded our expectations by miles and we had very high expectations having seen there promo videos. All the band were professional and exceptional musicians. We added extra brass and asked for a female vocalist to accompany the band. Though not normally with the band Noreen was an excellent addition and we were so glad we added the extra members to give the extra depth to the band. The band kept the floor filled all night and the rave reviews from our guests keep on coming. Even several of our suppliers who do wedding week in week out commented that the band was the best they had ever heard at a wedding. 5* does not do this band justice. My wife and I would recommend Rich and the Party Up band to anyone. We can't wait to host another event so we can book Party Up again!”

10

“If my couples want any wedding any wedding advice, my answer is always 'do it your way and get a band'. You fellas could sing & play the alphabet and the dance floor would be full.”

10

“Function Centre were a pleasure to deal with and provided all the information we needed very promptly. Party Up are a fantastic and fun band and we would definitely recommend them to anyone who feels that music should be a big part of their celebration.”

10

“Party Up arrived exactly when they said they would. They were polite and very likeable. They smashed their set and had everyone dancing from start to finish. Guests are all asking who they were and commenting on how good they are. Their music was second to none. Our first dance was incredible and the vocals spot on. My family (English) and my husband's (African) enjoyed every song!! Incredible band!!”

10

“Party Up performed at our wedding last Friday... and rocked the place! We were so looking forward to their performance from the moment we booked them, and they surpassed all expectations. The dance floor was full to the brim and the tunes were uplifting and banging! The band are so friendly and at the same time professional. Genuinely talented guys, thank you so much for adding to our awesome memories of the best day/night ever.”

10

“We booked Party Up because their demos sounded amazing both vocally & instrumentally. Prior to the wedding they contacted us when they said they would, we discussed the music they were going to play on the day including our 1st dance, and they were so accommodating. On the day, they arrived on time and they were very discrete setting up! The music they played was brilliant - you can tell they've been playing for a while as they gel so well on stage! They got all by guests up onto the dancefloor. They were truly a superb, excellent band! It was a night I will remember forever thanks to Party Up!!!!”

10

“The act were amazing, tight musicians and great singers. Set list was on point and the management of the occasion/crowd was brilliant. All guests were loving it and compliments were aplenty. Definitely helped make the evening and the Bride/Groom focus was just right. The only reason I would get married again would be to see you guys play!”

10

“The band were fabulous, so many people have said how great they were and we danced all night!”

10

“Party Up were fantastic at getting the dance floor rammed and keeping people there with awesome tunes. Also an absolute professional pleasure, exceeded expectations and were super easy-going. Huge Thanks!”

10

“My wife and I booked Party Up through Function Central after months of trawling the internet looking for a wedding band. We were looking for a soul/funk band who had a brilliant lead singer and when we found Party Up we knew this was our band! The band were absolutely incredible and were a real highlight of the evening with all our guests commenting on how amazing and professional they were. Liff (lead singer) has got an unbelievable voice! They also called us up a week prior to the wedding to go over everything and cater to what we liked musically which was very reassuring for us. I would highly recommend using Function Central (and Party Up!) who really helped in creating some wonderful memories for our wedding!”

10

“We booked them as they looked like an act that could bring vibe to a classy interracial wedding (Jamaicans on one side - highbrow English lords on the other) without compromising us and themselves and they delivered. Classy without the cheese. Perfect for a wedding which was a kaleidoscope of races and cultures. Quality band.”

10

“We just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. I can't tell you how many compliments you have received from our guests since. You were the talk of the town. So many people have said that they haven't experienced such a fantastic atmosphere at a wedding before and so much of that was down to you guys. Sorry it's taken us so long to send this, we're just getting back to down to earth! We do have a photo that we must forward to you, and we will just as soon as its been forwarded onto us. Thank you again, we hope you all enjoyed yourselves as we certainly did. We couldn't have asked for a better night.”

10

“Best band we have ever had the pleasure of seeing, truly talented and all our guests agreed!”

10

“Party Up are truly fabulous! I did my research on this band well in advance of our wedding day, and they just blew us all away with their music! Function Central Agency were also very helpful in organising everything for the day. 5 stars all around!”

10

“Party Up frankly made our wedding! All our guests mentioned how good they were while they dealt with any requests we had, such as helping with playlists during their sets etc. They also contacted us directly a few weeks before the wedding and afterwards to check we were happy. They were lovely. They had everyone dancing and really brought the evening part of the wedding to life. We could not have asked for a better act for our wedding day and would highly recommend them to anyone else.”

10

“Function Central as an agency were extremely helpful- phone calls and emails assisted us in choosing the right musicians for us. Party Up were an extremely professional band, we were worried about them setting up whilst we were eating because we had the stage right in the middle of the marquee, but it was no problem at all barely noticeable with everyone chatting. They were amazing, exactly what we hoped for, blues vocals and amazing musicians playing old school tunes as well as current numbers. The atmosphere was amazing and the overwhelming comments we got from our guests about Party Up tells us how much they added to our special day. The variety of songs they had playing during their break still kept our guests dancing too! They even involved the crowd with sing along moments- it was just great! I didn't want to leave but the bride and groom had to make their exit at midnight!"”

10

“Party Up were absolutely fantastic and everything that we hoped they would be. They brought so much energy to the evening and the dance floor was filled from start to finish. Rich the band member contacted me a couple of weeks before and helped sort out the admin and finer details so that we were all set for the big day. Also, the band were very accommodating and learned a song that we requested. Function Central were also great. Upfront and transparent with all the costs and T&Cs and were very responsive to any questions I had.”

10

“The band was superb - very easy to deal with and totally delivered on the night. We could not have asked for a better performance. The whole band were incredibly talented and we have received so many compliments from our guest They pitched the music just right for the audience and the sound itself was loud but not too much. We had so many comments about the band afterwards and in fact one of the guests has already booked them for their wedding next year. We would have no hesitation in recommending them or in using them again.”

10

“We did quite a meticulous search for wedding bands as music is so important to us and we wanted it to be a very musical day. My husband and I both wanted a Motown/soul band and Party Up were by far the best when we were watching demo clips online. As soon as we found them, we booked immediately! They were the most incredible band to have at our wedding, playing the perfect music to keep all the guests dancing all night long. They are great musicians, professional and really ended our wedding day in the most perfect way. We even had a group of people dancing who never usually dance at weddings!! My husband and I felt incredibly happy to have Party Up at our wedding and we also have some great video and photo memories! To top it off, they played our first dance song, which was amazing!”

10

“Both the act and the agency were absolutely first class. Can't fault them!”

10

“The agency were really helpful and easily contactable. The band were great, understood what was needed and were happy to make changes on the night if this was required.”

10

“Firstly, the booking experience was so easy and simple. The guys from the band and Function Central could not be nicer!! Although they're not cheap they're hugely worth the money!! I could not speak highly enough, as the groom I didn't even notice them come in and begin to process of setting up. They played our first dance and hit it perfectly. They were interactive and fun loving which just added to a fantastic experience. The atmosphere they managed to conjure was phenomenal and we would definitely recommend Party Up! Simply incredible. I've been in bands most of my life so I understand how difficult it is to set up and produce a crowd on the dance floor, however they did this with ease! Thank you so much for adding to such an unforgettable day!”

10

“Party Up completely exceeded our expectations in every way. They set up on time, they played our first dance superbly, they interacted with the guests, they looked like they were really enjoying themselves and they got everyone dancing right from the start. The dance floor was full all night and everyone loved them to bits - I am still getting brilliant feedback about them 10 days later. The guys sounded amazing and they are clearly very talented musicians. I would love to hear them again and I can honestly say that they could not have been better for the occasion - stunning!”

10

“WOW what a night you guys never cease to amaze me, the band has got even better! You were absolutely outstanding and your lead singer has such a great voice, I don't know how you're not touring the world selling out stadiums :)”

10

“James and I loved the band from start to finish!! It was exactly what we wanted as for us getting the music right was so important as it makes the wedding and the party. The dance floor was full the whole night and one of our highlights is our first dance which the band performed so amazingly! They exceeded all our expectations, were very easy to discuss the plan for the day with and all our guests have commented to us how good they thought the band were. We had the best day of our lives and Party Up were a big part of making it so.”

10

“11/10 they were amazing and to me they played better than the year before. The choice of music was on point and really suited our audience and the lead singer is outstanding. The whole band are world class and we will be booking again next year - everyone loved them!”

10

“Guys, what can I say, from me and Eddie and all our wedding party, thanks a million, you were amazing (as I knew you would be from all the feedback I had read about you and listening to your demo playlist). So glad we booked you for our wedding, cheers.”

10

“Party Up were absolutely brilliant. They got everyone up and dancing and played a variety of funky music. We also received lots of great feedback from our staff!”

10

“I am writing to say a huge Thank You to the fantastic band Party Up who were involved in making Alice and Tom's wedding so perfect, the band were fantastic, the guests absolutley loved them, the dance floor never emptied, and the singer interacted with the guests, which was brilliant to see. Alice and Tom and all the guests had a fantastic day. In run up to the wedding, and on the day itself you went above and beyond, nothing was too much, anything I needed or asked you to do, you did without question, you all worked so hard to ensure everything was perfect, It was an absolute pleasure to work with such an exceptional band, they are so friendly, polite and and we look forward to working with you all again soon. So from the bottom of our hearts we would both like to thank you very much, the wedding went perfectly because of all you guys. We cannot thank you enough for everything.”

10

“Party Up band were amazing. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests. Everyone was up dancing throughout and didn't want their final set to end. They were professional, reliable and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to others - in fact I already have!”

10

“How on earth to thank you for such an epic performance at our wedding back in October?! Both the DJ and our caterer commented on what a pleasure it was to watch you. They will have seen so many function bands so I feel that speaks volumes. Never mind the incredible guest feedback! Thanks so much.”

10

“Ok, so this gleaming review has been a long time coming, running late like everything did on our wedding day! A month ago Party Up rocked the roof off our marquee in Thetford. We are so pleased that we booked this amazing band. The comments from guests are still flooding in about how brilliant they were! The guys went over and above, they were very accommodating with our requests, and are all incredible musicians. I'm so glad I changed into a shorter skirt for the reception so that I could dance properly!!! Their garage mix was OFF.THE.HOOK! You will not regret booking these guys. Thank you for making our special day even more special.”

10

“The band were excellent throughout. Both the acoustic set during the drinks reception and the full band sets later in the evening were superb, the dance floor was packed for the live sets and many guests commented on how good the music was. Even the owner of the venue made special reference to how great the music had been that night. The guys were also very flexible in allowing us to use their microphone for the wedding speeches, plug in our own equipment to record the audio from the speeches directly from the mic and allowed us to plug in an iPod to play background music early in the evening before they took over. All in all, a joy to have there and a real highlight for lots of the guests. Thank you!”

10

“We could not have been happier. They nailed 'Is This Love' by Bob Marley as our first dance and then carried it on all night. The garage medley and 'Treasure' were also highlights. Guests of all ages have specifically commented on the band and how they made our reception one of the best things they've been too!”

10

“The band were absolutely incredible! Some of the nicest most talented guys I have met. They had so much energy and had a fantastic repertoire. The lead vocalist was amazing! They were not your average wedding band they were gig level and that's what it felt like. They were all very accommodating and took time to mingle with the employees. They were very low maintenance and a pleasure to deal with. We would most certainly book them again and I will be recommending them to everyone I know! Function Central were a pleasure to work with and Party Up are one of the best bands I have heard! They are incredibly professional, friendly and accommodating, extremely talented and you would not be disappointed! The lead vocalist was faultless and could hit some real high notes. They had great energy and really knew how to get the crowd going!”

10

“Extremely pleased with Party Up. So many of our guests commented how great the band was. I would highly recommend them. I would definitely use them again for another function. They were current, fun, enthusiastic, got everyone on their feet. You can't help but dance when they play.”

10

“From beginning to end, Party Up were a joy to deal with. Both before the wedding, when they introduced themselves and asked for any requests or queries, right through to the event itself when they were excellent and afterwards. We would highly recommend them. Quality musicianship!”

10

“Just a quick email to thank you and the guys so much for their work on Saturday night. They were really professional and friendly, arriving on time and setting up quickly (despite being in conditions similar to Glastonbury!). They were fantastic, getting everyone up and dancing. We will be recommending you to everyone! Thanks again, I look forward to working with you all again soon.”

10

“Party Up were sensational, the variety of songs they played was brilliant and kept our guests up dancing all night. Book Party Up Band if you want your night to run smoothly and for all your guests to have the best time ever.”

10

“Party Up were absolutely amazing, they had our guest dancing all night. The variety of songs they played were perfect and all our guest made so many complements about how brilliant they were.”

10

“Brilliant band! They were so professional - contacted us to run through what we wanted, turned up early, got all the timings of the night right, and were really nice guys. The music was great and the lead singer rocked. Couldn't have been happier with them!”

10

“Quick to set up and the performances were excellent. They listened to our request for older songs and got everyone up dancing all night!”

10

“Party Up stood out immediately when looking for a band for our wedding - for your consistent positive reviews and your open, flexible style and approach too. Despite our complex brief, you adapted to meet our every expectation and more! As well as your amazing performances, leading on the Scottish dancing and a Danish waltz too brought our cultures together so well. Thank you too for the song dedication that we had requested before the evening and for working with our gospel choir to make sure all of our entertainment went to plan - you went above and beyond pre, post and during our wedding and the care factor of Party Up was so appreciated! Party Up brought exactly the atmosphere we had hoped for ... talented and professional and so energetic and upbeat in your every song. For most of the evening everyone was off their seat and on the dance floor - a huge success and we feel very lucky to have had Party Up as part of our day! Considering the budget for the whole day, Party Up were without a doubt where we spent our money most wisely. Our guests continue to rave about our band and, like any Bride and Groom, we couldn't be happier to know that our family and friends enjoyed our day as much as we did. Many of our friends who are planning their weddings have since tried to book Party Up without success ... do book as early as you can so you too can enjoy these most fabulous people! Thank you so much - keep doing what you are doing! I hope many more brides are lucky enough to experience the magic of Party Up!”

10

“Party Up are the best live band I've ever danced all night to! They perform with huge joy and really know how to keep the crowd moving. I'll never book anyone else!”

10

“We wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you all for playing at our wedding, the music was exactly what we'd hoped it would be and everyone has absolutely raved about you guys. Thank you again and I can't wait for another excuse to book you!!!”

10

“Thank you Party Up for a fantastic night of music at my 40th birthday on Saturday! I had so many people comment on just how brilliant you were! You made my night!”

10

“100% satisfied. Party Up were EXACTLY what we hoped they would be (dare I say it, better than the demo tracks online). They played our first dance and Father/Daughter dance live which were brilliant and set the mood straight away. The dance floor was full from 8-12pm and we were so disappointed when they finished. We opted to have interval music chosen by Party Up in between their two one hour live sets as opposed to the full DJ option (where you could submit requests etc) and it worked brilliantly. Logistically, they were perfect. I spoke with the band a week before the wedding to run through details and had their contact number in case of any last minute queries. One thing I was slightly concerned about was that we would be eating in the marquee whilst the band set up - I talked this through with the band and we decided the best time to do this etc and it worked perfectly. Nobody noticed them setting up and they were quiet and efficient and did a quick sound check at the agreed time. Thoroughly lovely people who I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone who loves Motown/soul music - we will definitely book them again in the future.”

10

“We were extremely happy with Party Up. They were completely worth it and kept the dance floor full all night!”

10

“Just wanted to say thank you to the whole band for the most amazing set you guys did at our wedding on 19th February. Everyone is still raving about you, the music was just brilliant, just what we wanted, upbeat and soulful. Thank you!”

10

“This was the second time we have booked Party Up and they were amazing! Our client also requested their details to send praise! We hope to have them back again in the future.”

10

“Party Up were incredible. They made our first dance very special with a beautiful rendition of You Got The Love and got everyone on the dance floor with their eclectic mix of soul, pop and even a surprise old school garage medley! They were extremely friendly, professional and helped our wedding run seamlessly.”

10

“They contacted us a few weeks before to run through the final arrangements. He was very friendly and professional. On the date of the wedding Party Up arrived and set up well on time without any issues, and started with our first dance song before then going into their set. They were absolutely fantastic!! They kept people on the dance floor all night long. As a musician myself it was important to me that they not only had good energy but also a really good sound. They are talented musicians and work very well together. They have a large set list, a very professional sound, and their singer has a powerful soulful voice. They were very smart, friendly, and a few people commented that they were very good with the children who were dancing at the beginning of the evening. I am so pleased we decided to book Party Up, they were well worth every penny! We have had many people commenting on how good the band were, the perfect end to our perfect day. Thank you!”

“Party Up were unbelievable, blew our minds. Great band and singers. Really stood out from others we considered. Dance floor was packed all night with lots of compliments afterwards. Perfect playlist. Much more of a soulful, funk sound then other bands we considered. Cannot recommend highly enough. If you're looking for a funk/soul band you will not find better! Thanks guys for an amazing evening!!”

“Party Up was unbelievable and really made our wedding. They brought an incredible amount of energy to the night, and it was all capped off with allowing me to sing the last song with them! I was also able to communicate a lot with them beforehand, which was really help. Great guys and loads of fun!”

“Party UP were absolutely fantastic! They were everything we hoped for and more. The band were the most important part of the wedding to us and they smashed it. We went for the full works, trumpet, sax and an extra set. We especially loved the live garage sequence, the crowd went wild! Every band member was superb. The dance floor was packed solid the whole night. So many of our guests praised the band, one even grabbed the mic at the end of the evening to sing their praises. They also allowed my Dad to play the saxophone with them - a surprise for everyone, as he had learnt how to play one song in secret! I am so thankful to Party UP for making our wedding party dreams come true. BOOK THESE GUYS, they are unreal!”

“Super-talented, professional musicians and band that had all our wedding guests on their feet. All our guests commented on the amazing band. I did a lot of research on soul funk bands, liked their play list and demo list the best and with all the fantastic testimonials they had I felt safe booking them knowing that they were going to deliver what we wanted. The music was a really big thing for us throughout our whole wedding day and the band delivered.”

“Quite simply the best wedding band either myself, my wife, our guests and our suppliers have ever seen/heard. Some of our very experienced wedding suppliers commented that they were the best band they had seen on the wedding circuit. If you want the best wedding band book Party Up!”

We really wanted a band that would get everyone on their feet for a real party and we certainly got that - the dance floor was full all night!! We couldn't recommend them highly enough! Thank you guys!!”

“Party UP played at our wedding at South Farm last year and I can't believe it has taken us this long to post as people are still talking about how fantastic the band were We were blown away by how professional and 'tight' the band were, their excellent range of covers and their ability to read and work the crowd. Thank you so much for helping make our special day even more fab.”

“I booked Party Up for my wedding and wow! They were amazing! We Danced all night and all my guests said how fantastic they were. They were a really nice bunch too. We were a little concerned as we hadn't seen them perform prior but we had nothing to worry about.”

10

“Party Up is an amazing band and they were the perfect choice for our wedding. They had everybody up dancing, regardless of age, from the start to the end of their set. They are all incredible musicians, fronted by a great singer. They were very also very helpful and friendly, beginning with the initial contact prior to the wedding and then on the night itself. They were more than happy to play some songs of our choice, including a stunning performance of our chosen first dance. Otherwise their set list was just right for the event with a mixture of soul, funk, pop and rock. We could not recommend this band highly enough.”

10

“I could not fault the band, They were fantastic!!! They were very professional, stress free and fantastic musicians. All of our guests couldn't believe how good they were and we all certainly had a fantastic evening. The band were also accommodating as we had limited space. Their play list was great, and provided a range of music that appealed to a number of different tastes.”

10

“We had an absolutely great time on Saturday! We couldn't be more delighted than we are with how things went. We had the most perfect day and the band was fantastic. It was also lovely and special to us (and to Joshie) that they were able to play that little section of special songs for Josh, with the whole band joining in. We so enjoyed the music (and we know everyone else did too) and we just wish we had had three or four hours of them not just two. But we had a really great day and evening. Party Up were fantastic. Please pass on our sincere thanks to them and thanks also to you again for dealing with everything so promptly and efficiently.”

You helped to put on a superb party for our guests and everyone passed on their compliments after the evening. We appreciated you accommodating our special requests, especially after the last minute hiccups, and for making sure that everything went as planned. Thank you again, we will certainly recommend you to any friends who are planning similar events!”

“Party Up were sensational and exceeded all our expectations. My daughter Alison and her husband Jack had wanted a band who could do Soul and a bit of R&B. We got all of that and more. During the two sets and regardless of age group and music, the dance floor was just packed from start to finish which says it all. Party Up were the icing on the cake, everyone commented to us how great they were. Outstanding job. A huge thank you, Stuart.”

“We've just got back from honeymoon in the outer hebrides and now that we are reunited with internet we wanted to say a huge thank you for your performance at our wedding. You guys were absolutely fantastic -we expected good things but you really surpassed all expectations. Everyone has been asking where we found you -they so enjoyed themselves (and as you know didn't want to leave at the end!!). A number of our family and friends are musicians and commented on how professional and skilled you all were -it was a hard crowd to please and you nailed it. Our guests of all ages loved it -from the kids to my 83 year old grandmother who stayed especially for your last song! I hope that you enjoyed the gig and were well looked after - we would definitely be happy to recommend you to anyone interested. Many thanks again”

10

“Party Up were absolutely fantastic! I've lost count of the number of wedding guests who commented on how much they'd enjoyed them. These guys were consummate professionals; turned up on time, setup with minimum fuss then blasted out two sets of soul, funk and Motown. I know it can be tricky picking a band through an agency with only a few mp3s to go on but these guys are first class, especially with the brass section. Many thanks again for making our day special.”

“Party Up were fantastic - they did a great job and we couldn't have been happier with their performance. Their version of Johnny B Goode for our first dance was excellent and really got the party started - they filled the dance floor for the entirety of both their sets, which says it all. So many people have said to us how good the band were - we're really pleased we chose them.”

“We couldn't have been more happy with Party Up! They played our first dance which was amazing and then had everybody dancing all night. So many of our guests commented on how good they were and I have already passed on their details as people want to book them for their wedding! They were all so professional and friendly and played all the songs we had requested. We had the most amazing day, and the band really added to making it perfect!”

Every comment I have had from my guests all the mentioned the band and how good they were, and what a great atmosphere there was at the party! It was a perfect night band, food and the weather! Thank you very much party up!”

“The band were amazing and we had lots of comments on the night from guests saying how great they were, when they tried to end their set everyone asked for more! They were on time and very professional and did 2 great sets that got everyone dancing followed by a great DJ playlist. We also had a acoustic sax and guitar duo for the drinks reception which set the scene perfectly and was a wonderful welcome for guests. Overall brilliant, having a band was really important for us and Party up were just want we were looking for. Would highly recommend them!”

“Party Up were absolutely fantastic. We've had so many people asking for their details for future bookings. Everyone loved the music, the atmosphere was electric (so much so that the Father of the Groom attempted a stage dive) and we all danced the night away. The band were professional and courteous, but most of all the MUSIC! Great! Perfect set list, really made our day. Thank you!”

10

“We were a little worried at how the band would be as we booked it all online. However, we had nothing to worry about. The band arrived on time and were really professional. They got everyone up dancing and we all had a great time. The grooms dad commented that it was the only thing keeping him awake as he enjoyed it so much. I think that speaks for itself. Brilliant! Thank you so much.”

10

“They were brilliant. They turned up on time, got ready with minimum of fuss and were enormously accommodating of our time keeping or lack of it. The music itself was bang on. The songs chosen were perfect and the band did everything they could to ensure that everyone was on their feet dancing at some point. A massive thank you to the whole band, you rock and really contributed to a fantastic evening.”

10

“We absolutely loved Party Up. They were fantastic! Both professional to deal with, and exceptional on the talent front. They were friendly, co-operative and fun.”

10

“Party Up! made the night at our black tie ball. From the first note to the last encore the dance floor was packed and they interacted with the audience. The other thing I would say about the band is that they were all very professional to deal with, turned up on time, set up on time and interacted with us organisers in a friendly, helpful manner. That makes so much difference - but if it's just the music you're interested in then I'd say ten out of ten.”

10

“Sorry this is a little belated but we are just beginning to return to normal! We wanted to thank you all SO much for your fantastic efforts at the wedding. We have had a veritable flood of thank you letters and calls and almost without exception they all rave about the band! You did us proud and if you don't pick up a good few more events to play at I'll be very surprised - lots of people have asked who you were so I'll make sure I pass on details. A HUGE thank you to you all - it was absolutely FANTASTIC!”

10

“I truly believe you are destined for greatness! So many guests, of all ages, commented on how great the band was. Of any aspect of the wedding, you were the most talked about. For me, you are the most perfect band - funky, upbeat, interactive, sociable and intuitive. I was a little nervous having never heard you play before, but you exceeded all my expectations and more. Thank you all so very much for creating so much energy and fun - you made our day very special.”
