Ben, Wedding, Liverpool, May 2019

“We were absolutely delighted with the band's professionalism in every aspect of the service. Everything was explained and discussed very clearly beforehand, so we knew we were getting exactly what we needed. The guys were very accommodating and the music was superb - a real touch of class at our event.”

Sofia, Corporate event, Leeds, June 2019

“The band were very good and we will definitely invite them again to a future event. Prompt arrival, positive and professional attitude.”

Rauf, Pendle Festival of Culture, Nelson in Lancashire, June 2019

“The Resets are an amazing band. Great songs, got everyone dancing and were also really professional. Even better than we had wished for!”

Matt & Vicki, Wedding, Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire, May 2019

“We are back from our little honeymoon in Cornwall and we just wanted to email to say a massive thanks to you and all the other band members! We had an absolutely amazing day, and you guys rounded it off brilliantly! I think at one point there wasn't even anybody by the bar as everybody was up dancing! It couldn't have been more perfect!”

Rob & Lainey, Wedding, Manchester, May 2019

“The band were absolutely brilliant and had the whole of the wedding party dancing at the end of the night. Lots of classic songs but with their own twist, incredible. Such a nice bunch of people too!”

Rob & Lainey, Wedding, Mansion House in Wales, May 2019

“The band were incredible, they made our night! Amazing musicians, sounded great, professional (bang on time), very cool and played great music. 10/10!”

Elisa, Corporate Event, Manchester, January 2019

“Fantastic!! When starting to plan our wedding my main priority was a good live band with a quirky vintage twist but which wouldn’t blast everyone’s ear drums. I was skeptical booking a band we had not heard. All I knew is I wanted a cover band so all our guests would be familiar with the songs. The Resets were a choice I do not regret!! Their demos on line sound good and when you get them in the room.. Spot on!! All our guests were up on the dance floor and they loved them. Thanks guys for making our reception better than we dreamed!”

Jess, Wedding, Lancashire, October 2018

“We chose The Resets because our venue was noise restricted and they weren’t has heavy as other bands we’d seen. We still wanted our guests to dance though and we liked their vintage vibe. In short, the band exceeded these expectations. They set up with minimal fuss, played a great selection of mainstream music in a gypsy style and were thoroughly enjoyed by all.”

Daniel, Wedding, Cheshire, September 2018

“The band were great, absolutely nailed our first dance and went on to play two great sets. Great musicians and thoroughly professional attitude. The whole wedding party were impressed.”

Steve, Wedding, Manchester, August 2018

“They made our wedding so special and memorable! Every single one of our guests came up to us at some point on the night or afterwards to say how amazing they were, and how much fun they had dancing! Each member of the band is an incredible musician too, they blew me away! Not to mention how lovely and friendly they are and how easy it was to arrange everything.”

Luck & Damien, Wedding in Manchester, December 2017

“Seriously, if you are looking for a band who tick all the boxes, look no further. It will be the best decision you will make. Hands down, it was ours. Energetic, fun, friendly and incredibly professional. We really wanted our wedding atmosphere to be more of a fun knees up and these guys made that. We wanted them to play all night!”

Nilly & Mark, Wedding in London, August 2017
