“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!”

“Great band and good service provided from the agency.”

“These guys were fantastic, friendly and helpful with the lead up and set up, then proceeded to play amazing music all night. They read the crowd perfectly and really went out their way to make our wedding perfect. Really professional, easy and fun to work with. Warmly recommend for any event. Plus their version of All Along the Watchtower by Hendrix was superb, good work guys.”

“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”

10

“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.”

10

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

10

“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!”

10

“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!”

10

“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!”

“The Breaks played at our wedding a couple of weeks ago and were awesome. Loads of our friends have raved to us about how good the band were since the wedding and they did not disappoint. The whole dancefloor was packed with all ages. Would highly recommend!”

10

“The Breaks played at our wedding 3 weeks ago and were absolutely brilliant! Thank you guys for a great night, we totally danced our socks off. We can highly recommend this band for a party or a wedding where you all want to really let your hair down.”

10

“They were fantastic, great voice, great song choices. The acoustic set was amazing and everyone said how good it was!”

10

“The band were excellent - they made the experience very enjoyable. They went above and beyond the call of duty on the evening playing an extensive list of songs. Whilst we had booked a DJ service through the band, he was only required for the last hour as the band in fact played on with their evening set for a number of additional hours, much to the satisfaction of everyone who attended the wedding. We did not receive one negative comment regarding the music from anyone who attended and the band made a real effort to accommodate our requests for particular song choices. The fact the band genuinely looked like they were happy to be there only added to success of the day and evening.”

10

“The Breaks were fantastic and helped to create a brilliant atmosphere for people to dance and socialise. They were friendly and helpful and we are so pleased that they helped to make our wedding day so special.”

10

“The band were brilliant. Very professional from start to finish. They gave us great advice regarding the timings of things we wanted to include like the first dance, fireworks etc. We decided to go for the acoustic session which was a fantastic way to fill the void between the day and the evening and many of our guests commented on how good this was. They fully engaged with our guests and most importantly the music was incredible. Would certainly recommend.”

10

“10 out of 10!! The Breaks were friendly, chilled out lads that played a wide range of music and I would definitely recommend them for any occasion!”

10

“Thank you to The Breaks for making our recent party at Oake Manor Golf Club near Taunton such a success. You were brilliant and all our guests mentioned how good you were. Memorable night!”

10

“They were great, guests were dancing all night. Encore! I was dancing on my crutches!”

10

“AMAZING!! The Band absolutely blew us away and helped made our day one we will never forget. They played a wide variety of music which got all guests of all ages on the dance floor and even ended the night with the whole wedding party shouting one more song! Every single one of our wedding guests complimented on how great the band were and I am sure they will be getting plenty more bookings. We cannot recommend The Breaks enough, they are highly professional and created the most amazing atmosphere for our big day - thanks guys (and girl).”

10

“We hired The Breaks for our wedding in May and they were amazing! They were brilliant prior to the wedding, giving us good advice about first dance songs etc. And on the night they absolutely smashed it! The dancefloor was rammed, everybody was up and dancing, even the oldies, prompting an encore. If it weren't for sound regulations we could have been there all night! Everybody commented on how brilliant they were and how they had such a great range of music, catering for everybody. Do not hesitate to book these guys! You won't regret it. Cheers again gents.”

10

“The Breaks were amazing! Our guests kept saying how much they were enjoying themselves and how good the guys sounded. People were up on the dancefloor all night. They all seemed like nice guys, and had a good mix of songs. I would definitely recommend them - especially for a function with younger age groups as most of our guests were between 20-35. That didn't stop all generations dancing away though! Thanks, we had a great time!”

10

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your brilliant performance on our wedding night, at Tregenna Castle, St Ives on Easter Sunday. You did a fantastic job and we loved the range of music that you played. Had an amazing night! Thank you!”

10

“The Breaks were great! They did their acoustic outside and it was brilliant, including sitting with the bridesmaids around the fire pit for the last few songs as requested. The live sets were energentic and awesome. There were not many people left in the Wedding party for the live sets but every body left was dancing. They snuck in and set up discretely so did not disturb the day. I would definitely recommend the Breaks.”

10

“The Breaks were fantastic! They were professional and energetic and played a great mix of music which meant everyone had a dance, and there were always people on the dance floor. Lots of people made comments about how good the music was.”

10

“We were incredibly satisfied with The Breaks. The band were hugely obliging and catered for our every requirement. They were able to maintain people dancing throughout their live sets and the DJ interludes, they had a very excitable crowd! Great music, great variety and nobody sat down!!”

10

“We and our guests were completely satisfied! The Breaks had our guests up dancing from the beginning of the evening to the end. The music they played suited all ages and their enthusiasm and great musical talent really added to the atmosphere of the day. All guests have said to us that "the band were amazing"!!”

10

“One of the best live bands I've heard in years!”

10

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you for a fantastic night on Saturday. The music was great and the range of songs you covered meant you managed to get everyone up and dancing - from Blur to Kings of Leon to the Kinks and a bit of Beatles and the Undertones thrown in, there was something everyone and even my mum who's nearly eighty! We also wanted to thank you for letting our young granddaughter and nephew sing their favourite songs - that made it so much more personal (as well as getting a female 'volunteer' up to add backing vocals!). Thanks also for the amount of encores you did, I think we blasted your personal best! Hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did.”

10

“Wow you guys put on an amazing set at our wedding last night!!! We had so many positive comments from our guests about how talented you are. Thank you so much!!x”

10

“The Breaks were unbelievable! A lot of our guests had never been to a wedding where everyone was dancing, even my 80 year old Great Auntie. The Breaks were extremely professional, they didn't bother myself or Sam they just rocked up and set up efficiently and waited patiently for their cue to start. We choose a favourite song of ours to be played by the band afterwards our first dance, 'Gold On The Ceiling' by The Black Keys. I could hardly tell the difference between The Breaks and The Black Keys, it was phenomenal. A few of our musician guests were very impressed by The Breaks; they couldn't believe such an amazing sound could be achieved with just the three and also how tightly they played together. They played to the crowd and started a singing competition between men and women, obliviously the women won after the bride's encouragement on stage. They even got everyone into a circle swaying to "Don't Look Back In Anger" by Oasis. One of the main highlights was when our best man got up on stage and spontaneously asked the band if he could sing "Take It Easy" by The Eagles, I believe only one band member was familiar with the tune, so they improvised and it sounded awesome. As our guests were having so much fun and not wanting to leave the dance floor. The choice of songs suited our guests down to the ground with a good mix of classic and recent hits. After the bands fifth encore they kept the dance floor full with their choice of songs played in the DJ set. I would highly recommend The Breaks. They made our day so enjoyable and it was brilliant to see both sets of family and friends mixing on the dance floor. We advise when booking The Breaks to make sure you have a big dance floor, as it will be full all night long.”

10

“Thank you so much for a brilliant evening at Rosie and Dan's Wedding in Tavistock last Saturday. Loved the music..”

10

“We were extremely satisfied with The Breaks. They got in touch quickly and we were in regular contact to make sure the day went as smoothly as possible. They arrived on time and set up as quickly as they could after we'd given the room later than planned. The music was great, a very tight set. I would highly recommend them to anyone and would not hesitate in booking them again myself. Thank you for helping make our day even better!”

10

“Thank you so much to The Breaks for an amazing night for our wedding at Lands End Hotel May 2013. We really wanted a live band for our wedding and so pleased we found and booked The Breaks you are a fantastic band! Joe was also great for getting in contact and organised the event perfectly. Absolutely amazing live performances and great songs we danced all night with DJ set after too! We would highly recommend for future events and wouldn't hesitate to book you again if we organise anything else in the future!”
