“I thought the band were great, they really bounced of the people who were on the dancefloor.”

Charlotte & Curtis, Wedding, Lusty Glaze in Cornwall, September 2018

“Very good band. Great music, communication, and flexibility. Would recommend.”

Dominic & Georgina, Wedding at Polshawn Fort, July 2018

“The Breaks played at our wedding in June and they were brilliant. They had everyone up and dancing the night away, there was even a dance off at one point! We also booked an acoustic set in the afternoon at the last minute, and it was lovely. I'm so glad we booked them and if you are looking for a wedding band with a bit of an edge for your wedding, look no further. Thank you so much!”

Laura & Charles, Wedding, Tunnels Beaches in Ilfracombe, June 2018

“We loved having The Breaks play at our wedding. All the guests we had chance to speak to really enjoyed them. We especially loved that they were willing to learn and perform the song for our first dance.”

Adam & Steph, Wedding at Boringdon Park in Plymouth, May 2018

“The Breaks were a brilliant band. They had our whole wedding party up on their feet from song one until the end. It was a brilliant end to a truly memorable day. Thank you so much x”

Hetty, Wedding at Branscombe Village Hall in Seaton, August 2017

“The Breaks' repertoire is very diverse, there was something that we could both agree on and a lot that we thought our guests would enjoy. A week before our wedding we heard from the Band. Joe was brilliant, we gave them a list of repertoire that we liked and also a list of music we'd like them to play as part of the DJ sets. They also did requests on the night. The Breaks were absolutely superb. I can't thank them enough for how amazing they made our wedding reception. Everyone was up and dancing all night! Chatting with our guests the next morning, everyone thought they were perfect and would all highly recommend.”

James & Lauren, Wedding at The Orchid Hotel in Bournemouth, July 2017

“The Breaks were a brilliant act - they accommodated our first dance, got everybody up and dancing and most importantly played great music!”

Dave, Wedding at Ta Mill in Cornwall, July 2017

“Function Central were very approachable, with very good communication and the band were just awesome - we danced all night!”

Karen, Wedding at Teignmouth Rugby Club in Devon, July 2017

“Please pass on a big thank you from us to The Breaks. They were really good, our guests enjoyed the music and were flexible when we ran late. Thank you again, we are really glad we booked The Breaks and would recommend them.”

Carolyn, Wedding in Devon, April 2017

“The band were great and feedback from guests was amazing. They arrived on schedule, set up without fuss and played a good spread of music to suit all ages. The dance floor seemed to be full at all times which is always the key test!”

Helen, Wedding in Torquay, March 2017

“I can't actually praise these guys enough! They played great songs, and built up to the best songs towards the end. They got everyone dancing and a few people singing, and even when some guests tried to join in they just took it all in their stride and just seemed to be having a great laugh. Finally, I heard the next day that they even dropped some of my guests off at their accommodation in the village as they were struggling to get a cab - true heroes!”

Anna, Wedding in Devon, September 2016

“The Breaks hit the mark and were impressive throughout. An excellent choice of music from 3 charming and talented musicians. We would highly recommend to anyone wanting a quality band!”

Mark, 50th Birthday Party in Somerset, August 2016
