“They performed our first dance amazingly and the dance floor was busy all night! Thank you!”

Katie & Matt, Wedding, Dorset, July 2019

“Fantastic repertoire. Kit great - with 3 people produced a great sound. Everyone on the dance floor. Musicality, rhythm. Professional, on time, no fuss. Everything perfect.”

Melanie, Doctors re-union, Dartington Hall in Devon, October 2018

“The Crossfades were amazing at our wedding. They had everyone dancing from the first song and everyone raved about them afterwards. All 3 band members were excellent musicians. If you are looking for a fun, contemporary, rock/indie covers band I could not recommend them enough.”

Jemima & Justin, Wedding in Somerset, August 2018

“The agency were a good facilitator. The band were amazing and made a special day even more so. Everyone got up and danced. The atmosphere was electric and the band members were really friendly and accommodating. They played the crowd and got everyone involved in our special day. Couldn't of asked for anything better! They superseded our expectations and we are very great full to have had them play.”

Charlie & Lauren, Wedding at The Paintworks in Bristol, August 2018

“They exceeded my expectations. They did exactly what I asked re song choice and performed excellently.”

Richard, Wedding, Pier House in Devon, July 2018

“The band took time to talk to us about our requests prior to the event and were very accommodating of our ideas. They were able to clear up any confusions which led to them putting on the perfect event.”

Chris, Wedding, The Shrubbery Hotel in Ilminster, July 2018

“I can honestly say that The Crossfades were fantastic. They were young enthusiastic and the music rocked a very talented group of polite young men. We received so many compliments about the music, they created a real party atmosphere. I think people were delighted not to have the traditional cheese played by an overweight, annoying, intrusive DJ who thinks the party is more about him than the guests. I would certainly recommend The Crossfades to anyone who wants a great party with a bit of pop/rock and some killer riffs!”

David, Wedding in Bristol, June 2018

“Thanks guys for recommending The Crossfades to us - they absolutely rock! From start to finish they were complete gents, a delight to deal with and much better looking than their photo suggests! And as for the music; they were totally awesome. They had to please a range of ages from ultra-cool teenagers to doddery old farts and did so incredibly well. I had so many people asking me how I found the band and telling me they were amazing, I lost count. Their repertoire is really wide ranging and they sound so good that it didn't take long until there was no room on the dance floor, which I think says it all, as do my worn out feet! There's not many a night you will see people doing the twist one minute, rocking and rolling the next, followed by a good pogoing/headbanging session!! Thank you again heaps - we'd have them back every week!”

Katie, Wedding in Bristol, May 2018

“The Crossfades did my 40th birthday party for around 100 guests of all ages and backgrounds; the guys were absolutely brilliant at playing something for everyone, and it was all the highest quality in vocals, music, timing...honestly, every guest told me how impressed they were and even today I have been asked for their details for a friends wedding next summer! Many thanks to the whole band - the party was totally fantastic because of them.”

Deborah, Birthday Party in Gloucestershire, March 2018

“Thanks for the band guys. They were brilliant, big time. I love the Killers, and the lads renditions were ace. The camp were impressed and I got a pat on the back. Your details are up on our entertainment board, and a lot of people are asking who I went through. Hopefully we'll do business again. Really appreciate it.”

Mark, Mess Ball in Hampshire, January 2018

“We chose The Crossfades based on their great repertoire - and we weren't disappointed. They played all our favourites and had people dancing all night (even my friend with a broken ankle). They had great energy and stage presence and they instigated some very enthusiastic audience participation! We had surprised everyone with some (very classy) blow up guitars for some full on rock action and these were put to good use during their rendition of Livin' on a Prayer (amongst many other classics!). Many people commented on their performance, and my husband has even gone as far to say that 'Video Killed the Radio Star' should now be one of 'our songs'!! Massive thanks to all the band - I would be happy to recommend them to anyone.”

Rebecca, Wedding in Devon

“Just a quick email to say thanks for sorting out The Crossfades for our function on Saturday. Everyone had such a good time. I hope the band enjoyed themselves as well as the dance-floor was full all night long. I told the guys from the band that I would send a testimonial for your website so it would be glad if you could pass this onto the band as well. I would like to thank the band personally for making our reception so special. They are extremely talented musicians and kept the 150 guests fully entertained with their extensive repertoire of dancefloor and rock classics. I lost count of the number of people who came up to me during the party to ask how I found the band. Every inch of the dance-floor was full of admirers and there was audible disappointment when the band finished their set. A number of friends with weddings in the next few years have already asked me for the band's number as they were so impressed. Thanks so much and hopefully see you again soon at other functions in future.”

Matt, Wedding in Somerset

“The Crossfades were excellent and provided a good range of music that the whole group enjoyed. The process to find and book the band was so easy. Highly recommend and will most certainly use again.”

Sarah, Christmas Party at The Cardinals Hatt in Cornwall, December 2017

“Such excellent music and you guys were really passionate while playing - thanks so much!”

Andy, Wedding at St Audries Park in West Quantoxhead, October 2017

“Band were really great and managed to learn a request song for us and even play our first dance through their sound system. They got everyone dancing and were a great part of the day!”

Vicky, Wedding at The Glove Factory Studios in Trowbridge, October 2017

“The Crossfades were fantastic from the moment they were booked. They learnt to play a song for our first dance, made phone contact to clarify the timings and playlist we wanted for the evening and were brilliant on the day. Fantastic musicians, really nice people, kept the dance floor buzzing all night! Cannot recommend them highly enough!!”

Holly, Wedding at Rhinefield House in the New Forest, September 2017

“The band were fantastic, had everyone dancing and were generally brilliant! The agency were efficient, helpful with suggestions and a pleasure to deal with!”

Katie & Craig, Wedding at The Barn at Ashen Plains in Gloucestershire

“This band is awesome! The requests we asked for were performed perfectly and all of our guests commented on how amazing the band were. Truly talented and so friendly. We could not have been any happier! Thank you so much for making our evening brilliant!”

Kelly, Wedding at Days Cottage in Gloucester, July 2017

“Great band, great music and really nice people. Even the non-dancers were on the dance floor all evening. Did exactly what we asked for, were flexible with timings and not a cheesy song in sight! Would definitely book them again.”

Joanne, Wedding at Meudon Hotel in Cornwall, July 2017

“We were very pleased with the band, they sounded great and were clearly tuning their performance to the audience. They had even reluctant dancers onto the floor by the end of the night and managed last minute requests as well!”

Laura, Wedding at The Longhouse in Somerset, June 2017
