“A huge thank you to The Mod Cons for playing at our wedding reception on June 13th 2015. From start to finish you were absolutely amazing and made the night. Everyone who attended commented on how good you were and I have no hesitations in recommending you to anyone I know that needs a band! As well as performing our first dance 'Talk Tonight' acoustic, every song you played was brilliant. Top lads and a top band. Thanks again! Also a big thanks to Function Central. Professional throughout and always responded promptly to any questions we had. Would recommend to anyone in the future.”

10

“We booked The Mod Cons for our wedding at Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire. They were absolutely excellent and made our evening. They did a set as their Beatles tribute act 'Day Trippers', and a set of covers as Mod Cons. The guests thought they were fantastic. Function Central were also extremely professional and easy to deal with, keeping in conact wth us and answering any questions we had really quickly. Thoroughly recommend Function Central, and absolutely recommend Day Trippers/Mod Cons.”

10

“The band were amazing! They performed 2 sets for us and had everyone on the floor dancing. A real mixture of oldies and new, that fitted all our age groups at our wedding. I don't think there was one song I didn't dance to! The band were very professional and friendly, a really nice bunch of guys.”

10

“Almost everyone I have spoken to about the wedding has mentioned how much they loved the band and it was obvious anyway from the packed (and sweaty!!) dance-floor from start to end. I only made one song request and then left the rest for the band to decide on and they did a great job at matching the right songs to the atmosphere. They were happy to go along with any timing arrangements we requested and were pretty laid back about having to wait a little longer than expected for set-up on the day due to us running a little late. We certainly recommend.”

10

“The band was fantastic. They arrived an hour before the party to set up and the performance throughout the evening was first class. We had a large party of 150 people of mixed ages and we have had such great feedback about the party and just how good the band were. Guests were dancing to the end. We particularly wanted the sixties set and they exceeded our expectations. You were awesome!! We would highly recommend this band.”

10

“Put simply - exceptional! Many thanks for making the evening, Ian and I really appreciate your efforts. If anyone wants a reference just ask.”

10

“We honestly could not have asked for more from the band - they were even better than we hoped they would be! They were friendly and easy going and not to mention extremely talented. They definitely helped to create an amazing atmosphere and joined in with the fun of the night!”

10

“Hey guys, just wanted to say a big thanks for playing at our wedding. Everyone was really surprised by how good you all were and kept commenting over the next few days about how awesome the band were. It definitely wouldn't have been the same with just a DJ!! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone else. Thanks again!!”

10

“I just wanted to thank you again for being so good at the wedding, I'll be talking to the bosses to try and get you booked for a function and hopefully you'll stay over and have a few pints! Swear to god you guys were f***ing awesome!! Thanks again.”

10

“As a musician myself I was a little nervous booking a band over the net having only heard sound clips, even though those clips suggested a really good band, but I really needn't have worried at all. The musicianship was superb (every song was played with energy, soul and class) and everyone was up and dancing right from the first song (Town Called Malice by The Jam). The important thing was how much everyone enjoyed the Mod Cons, but I should also say that they were very accommodating in terms of late changes to timings, extremely personable and very much keen to add even more to our special day by making the music just as special. I would recommend the Mod Cons to anybody who wants a fantastic live band at their wedding, with the kind of music that will get everybody dancing all night and the kind of attitude and professionalism that will take away any stresses and allow the bride and groom to relax fully just at the point when they are finally able to do so.”

10

“We found the Mod Cons very easy to work with - a great set of guys. We just let them choose their own music and what a success. The dance floor was full all night and they created a fantastic atmosphere for the whole night. Many people have asked about the band since the wedding.”

10

“Thank you so much for playing at our wedding - you guys were superb. I've literally lost count of the number of guests who said how impressed they were and asked where I'd found such an incredible band from. Anyone reading this, thinking about booking - it would be a decision you absolutely would not regret! Thank you for playing so well and for simply being such bloody nice blokes!”

10

“These guys are amazing and all our guests thought they were fantastic too!!! Highly recommend them to everyone we know.”

10

“The Mod Cons played for our wedding in August and they were such great lads and musicians - they were professional, calm, and simply couldn't do enough for any of us. They had everyone up and dancing from start to finish and all our guests commented on how amazing they were which I think speaks volumes in itself. At the end everyone was shouting for more which was great fun! I wouldn't hesitate to book them for an event in the future. Thank you guys!”

10

“We booked the Mod Cons for a 60s themed Birthday Party. The music played was all from the 60s - their repertoire is fantastic so they had no problem with doing three sets like this. We can't fault them and would fully recommend them to everyone. Fantastic musicians and even more importantly they were the nicest lads you could hope to meet. The sort no father would mind their little girl bringing home!”

10

“The Mon Cons were fabulous - they got everyone up and dancing, young and old, which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much our first dance and we're sorry we didn't get to thank them in person on the night. Function Central was a very easy company to deal with and I would certainly recommend it to our friends.”

10

“The Mod Cons were so amazing - all of my guests have told me how incredible they were and I can honestly say they were one of the main reasons my wedding was so perfect. They were really lovely, kind guys, they looked fabulous and sounded even better!!”

10

“The Mod Cons were amazing. Great style, amazing sound, incredible energy. All of our guests have commented on how fantastic they thought you were and you kept the dance floor full all night!”

10

“The Mod Cons are a wonderful, youthful, buzzing band who made our evening reception one of the best memories of our wedding day. Guests were constantly commenting on how great the band was and every single guest was dancing from start to finish!”

10

“All praise to the Mod cons! You guys were amazing! You coped so well with the late running of the meal and you got all our guests on their feet straight away. Slick, energetic and just lovely people - quote me any time!”

10

“We hired The Mod Cons to celebrate 20 years of trading. There were really bad snow conditions and we didn't think many people would make it. Thankfully, every single guest was there! The band arrived early on in the evening and started getting ready to entertain everyone - they absolutely nailed it. It usually takes a few pints of courage for people to start dancing but this just wasn't the case with The Mod Cons. They had everyone, young and old, and older(!) on the dance floor all night long!”
