The Dip Dabs were absolutely superb. Our guests were really happy and certainly showed this by their feet on the dance floor! Grant, Wedding, Hertfordshire

Between them, the band have played at the most prestigious venues including the Birmingham NEC and Royal Albert Hall, as well as sought-after wedding venues, including Stubton Hall, Northcote House and Longstowe Hall, so you can be confident you’re not just getting a great band, but a professional service from the start.

The Dip Dabs bring all their own equipment and play pre-recorded music during the short breaks between sets, to keep your guests in the party spirit. They can also provide a DJ set after their performance if required. Highly recommended!
