“Terrific night driven by a fantastic band. Thank you The Bees!”

Terry, Wedding in Oxfordshire, September 2019

“Arrived on time, friendly and professional. I know that it is difficult to get people dancing at weddings but these guys did a great job. We really enjoyed them. I would book them again, no questions.”

Kirsty, Wedding at Rockbeare Manor, October 2018

“The band were very professional and sounded high quality, the songs they picked went down well, and they also played the ones we had requested. People danced until the end of the evening, they performed our first dance perfectly. Also spoke to the crowd sometimes which was nice to have the interaction.”

Henry, Wedding, The Roman Baths in Bath, November 2018

“The Bees had all our guest on the dance floor, which was impressive as we had a wide age range of guests! They played a wide variety of music so there was definitely something for everyone!”

Harriet & Jason, Wedding, April 2018

“We booked The Bees to play at our wedding as they had such a fantastic repertoire of songs which we thought would suit all of our guests. I am SO pleased we booked them as they did such a fantastic job! The band arrived on time and were very friendly, set up with no problems and started with a bang! They sounded amazing and all our guests were so impressed with them. The dance floor was always full with people dancing, I was just gutted it was over so quick!! I would most definitely book The Bees again for any future event. Thank you for making our wedding day extra special!”

Abbie, Wedding, in Sussex, February 2017
