“What can I say? You were absolutely amazing and blew us away! Everyone hasn't stopped talking about how great the band was and that they couldn't get off the dance floor because the songs were too good. You made the night and we feel so lucky to have had you play at our wedding. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.”

Jodie & Gavin, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, May 2019

“Fantastic! We've had loads of people comment on how well you performed and are already looking for an excuse to book you again! Thanks again!”

Jeanette & Steve, Wedding, London, May 2019

Sarah & Ben, Wedding, July 2019

Steph, Corporate Party, November 2018

“They were everything we had hoped they would be! The band were outstanding on every song, they got everyone up and dancing, and even made a grown man of 45 do an epic knee slide across the dance floor well before one of the kids had a chance too! Even to this day we still have people complimenting us on the band and how immense they were. I'm trying to think of more reasons to hire you again!”

Kryssy & Richard, Wedding, Hampshire, April 2019

“Fabulous! Provided the perfect range and variety of songs for our mixed audience. They had everybody up dancing all night and I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting a live band for their wedding.”

Carol, Wedding, February 2019

Highly professional and extremely friendly and personable and above all very talented. They made the night and everbody throroughly enjoyed it, fantastic! Would highly recommend them.”

Dan, Wedding, Nottinghamshire, June 2019

“Really professional, arrived on time and set up discreetly. The music was just fantastic and everyone was dancing, we could not have found a more suitable band for the occasion and would highly recommend them, as we said at the end of the evening: You can't have a good bash without a good band.”

Joanna and Glyn, Wedding, Northallerton, March 2019

Rich & Lizzie, Wedding, Farnham Castle in Surrey, June 2019

“The agency were fab with their efficiency and sending through different options to chose from based on our specification. The act themselves were brilliant and our guests loved them too! They got everyone dancing and chose the best songs for our demographic. Thank you all for helping make our event a huge success :)”

Ovenu, 25th Anniversary Party, Hellidon Lakes Hotel in Northamptonshire, May 2019

“We were very impressed with the band. They arrived on time to set up and were very quiet and not distracting as we were still finishing off speeches etc. They interacted with our guests and got the crowd up dancing, especially in their second set. The singer had a brilliant voice and the music was great. Our guests really enjoyed the live music.”

Jenny, Wedding, Brighton, March 2019

“Shakedown were fantastic, sounded exactly as they did in their demo. They were professional, friendly and gave a great performance.”

Kirsten, Birthday Party at Bel & The Dragon in Hampshire, November 2018

“We were absolutely delighted with Shakedown! We had been lucky enough to see them perform a couple of years ago at a friends wedding and we realised then that we needed to book them for our wedding too. We are so glad that we booked them as they were just as fantastic as we had remembered. Their sound is very funky, with lots of cool bass and lively beats all overlaid by those incredible voices. All of our guests commented on the band and the dance floor was full all night, which is testament to how good these guys are. I'm sad I won't be having a party like this again as I would not hesitate to book Shakedown again and I can't recommend them highly enough.”

Will & Mel, Wedding, Hove, October 2018

“Shakedown were superb, we had a great night and they were the perfect wedding band - as lots of our guests have reminded us of since! They had people dancing during the sound check as it was sounding so good and they had a great repertoire of songs - which was much needed when a more creative plan for first dance went out the window and we could pick from their list a minute before starting!”

Edward, Wedding, Brighton, April 2018
