“The natural talent, professionalism and engaging stage presence, on display during The Runaway's set at the Albury Music Festival, made it hard to believe that these young musicians were still at school. Their very appealing cocktail of cleverly arranged classics, such as ‘Feeling Good’ and Staying Alive’, carefully blended with their own writing – a uniquely fresh and jazzy sound – was just perfect for such a balmy afternoon. There was no weak link in this line up, with each member contributing impressively to a tight and innovative sound - and as the sun shone directly over this gem of a festival, the path ahead for this musically intelligent four piece, seemed very bright indeed.”

Lesley, Festival booking, Surrey, November 2019

“Great band, bursting with talent! The gig was amazing. Loads of people - including our musician friends - commented on how good they were so we were very happy!”

Ethan & Sam, Wedding, Surrey, October 2019

“We wanted to send a short note to say how much we enjoyed The Runaways music at our wedding - they were a great recommendation! The dealt with the timing changes really well and had such an up-to-date song list that so many of the songs were such a pleasant surprise. Definitely recommend them to other couples planning a wedding!”

Tyler & Ava, Wedding, London, September 2019

“The Runaways were so good! We were on the dancefloor the whole night and people are still messaging us now about how much they enjoyed the party and how good the band were. The singer had a great voice and they all sounded brilliant playing together. I just hope we get to hear them play again!”

Nathan & Vicky, Wedding, Surrey, August 2019

“The Runaways were amazing. Great to deal with, we agreed a fantastic playlist in advance - every band member had great charisma and all so talented. They made the event super fun and I can’t wait to hire them again”

Lisa, EdFest, Edinburgh, August 2019
