“The Alternatives were very professional as well as friendly, everyone commented how good they were and they really got the room up dancing!! Would definitely recommend to others!”

Emma, Wedding in Southampton, September 2019

“Just wanted to send you a note to say how amazing you were - you completed our night! We spent hours looking at different wedding bands on the internet and when we came across The Alternatives we knew we had to book you. We listened to your samples on the website and knew from your song repertoire that not only did you sound great but you would appeal to all ages. You were very accommodating throughout the whole process. You agreed to do an early set up and you even learnt our first dance song. Our wedding was housed in a tipi and I was a little concerned that a band would be overpowering but you sounded brilliant! We cannot thank you enough. We had so many good comments and feedback from friends and family who loved your set. Thank you so much, Sarah and Callum.”

Sarah & Callum, Wedding in Ashby de la Zouch, August 2019

“These guys totally made the day. They were happy to accommodate the ever changing locations we made them play in and they made a bunch of annoying musicians in the audience really welcome. Had nothing but good feedback from all the guests. Cheers for a great evening!!”

Ross & Bash, Wedding in London, July 2019

“FANTASTIC BAND!! The band were the perfect choice for our big day. They were really relaxed and professional, helping us to select our first dance and choosing the music for the evening. They had everyone on the dance floor all night and we have had so many comments from friends and family about how brilliant the band were! Thanks to the band for making our big day so perfect!!”

Sam, Wedding in the Cotswolds, June 2019

“FANTASTIC!! Created such an atmosphere knowing what songs to play to get people up and dancing.”

The Aether, Private Event, Liverpool, 2019
