“We would just like to say a massive thank you for performing on our big day at Hidden River Cabins, 16.6.18. It was a beautiful setting and you complimented the night brilliantly. I didn’t stop dancing all night, to the amazing tunes you played. I would highly recommend The Northern Rigs for a small or big event, as there are plenty of floor fillers and the DJ service was great. Thanks for helping make our day so special.”

Mel & Glenn, Wedding, Hidden River Cabins in Carlisle, June 2018

“The Northern Rigs were absolutely brilliant - they sang a great mix of songs and later DJ'd a fab set. Everyone was on their feet all night and I am really pleased as they really helped make the event!”

Katherine, 40th Birthday Party at Hampstead House in Northumberland, May 2017

“I hired them for our ceremony to play our favourite songs as we walked down the aisle and signed the register and they did a great job. Have recommended them to all my friends.”

Tracy, Wedding in Newcastle, June 2016

“Would definitely recommend The Northern Rigs, they really made our day special and memorable. If you want the perfect accompaniment to your wedding celebrations, get these guys to do it! Excellent ceremony music and superb evening entertainment all in one package at a great price.”
