“We booked The Sonics with the 3-piece brass section. Every member of the band was incredibly friendly, talented and great fun. They were easy to communicate with on the evening and were very accommodating. They did an amazing job with our first dance and every song they played afterwards. When they finished for the evening we were gutted as they really made the wedding - but they let us hold their instruments to get some great pictures with them! We would definitely recommend them for anyone planning an event. Thank you so much!”

James & Rachael, Wedding, Eaves Hall in Lancashire, July 2019

“The Band were Outstanding!!! It was like a live gig!!!!! The feedback we received about the lads was fantastic....we were privileged they were part of our special evening xxxxx THANK YOU!”

Wendy, wedding, Statham Lodge Hotel in Cheshire, June 2019

“Wow... Just wow! You only have to look at how packed our dance floor was to realise how good your band is! We were absolutely blown away by everything you did- from our exquisitely performed first dance song to the sing-a-long party anthems. You understood the mood of the room perfectly and a lot of our guests said it was the best part of the entire day! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for your outstanding contribution to our wonderful day!”

Natalie & Tom, Wedding, The Coniston Hotel in Skipton, July 2018

“The Sonics were fantastic. They were very professional, very friendly and very good! Our guests really enjoyed them. We would 100% recommend them.”

Katie & Pete, Wedding, Goosedale in Nottingham, July 2018

“We have received so so many compliments from our wedding guests for the band. They definitely kept or dance floor full all night and were so helpful in playing songs that we had asked for. We are so glad that we booked The Sonics and would definitely recommend them to everybody!”

Jenni & Mike, Wedding in Southport, March 2018

Wayne, 50th Birthday Party at Wiltshire Golf Club in Blackburn, January 2018

“Fantastic group, all of the guests have commented on how good they were. Highly recommended!”

Joanne, Dinner Dance at The Fir Grove Hotel in Warrington, January 2018

“The band were absolutely perfect! They travelled all the way up north from Liverpool to play for us and they arrived on time, were set up and ready to go by 7:30. They played a great selection of music and the dance floor was full from start to finish. The music was tight and well rehearsed. Very talented musicians and lovely lads. I loved the fact that they did music from lots of different influences and didn't just stick to the same old stuff. They seemed to get it just right, music people know but not the same old, same old. Wonderful, thank you to The Sonics for helping to make our Wedding a success. xxx”

Jen, Wedding, February 2018

“Just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for arranging the band The Sonics to play at our conference. Also a big THANK YOU to The Sonics for a fantastic performance. Everyone commented how good they all were and what a fantastic vocalist. I loved how they got the crowd going and watching everyone copy the dance routine the singer showed them when he got on the dancefloor was absolutely brilliant! After several chants of "one more song" from the crowd, The Sonics were more than happy to sing a few more songs despite going over the agreed finish time.”

Charlotte, Corporate Event in Leeds, January 2017

“We had The Sonics at our Wedding on Saturday 28th October and they were absolutely amazing! They were top class and really lovely guys, they even stepped in with an impromptu father/daughter dance when the CD we had it on wasn't working and we were all just blown away. Everyone was talking about how fantastic they were and the dancefloor was packed all night, we didn't want them to finish playing. They really were superb and won't hesitate to book them for any future events, our family have. Thank you so much to band for helping to make our special day so memorable.”

Nicola, Wedding in Liverpool, October 2017

“WOW! What a performance, Joe and the rest of the band could not have been more helpful before and during the wedding, everyone commented on how professional the performance was and the fantastic sound the guys produced. If you're nervous about booking a band you have never heard then don't be, we could not have wished for better!!”

Tim, Wedding at The Hollin Hall Country House Hotel in Macclesfield, September 2017

“Fantastic four-piece band, played a good selection of music and would definitely book them again. Everyone agreed that they were one of the best bands they had seen in ages!”

Peter, 30th Birthday Party at the Brooklands Club in Rotherham, July 2017

“The act were fantastic, the lead vocalist was great and the set list was brilliant! They were really flexible about adding songs in and doing our first dance and our dance floor was full the whole night long. They sounded just as good as the original records and the mix of music was brilliant. I would 100% recommend and use this band again!”

Amanda, Wedding at Albion House in Merseyside, December 2017

“Fantastic band and booking service. The band were brilliant, very talented and played some fantastic songs. Really got the crowd involved and everyone on the dance floor. Well enjoyed by all. The booking service was very smooth - any requested changes were very quickly processed and confirmed.”

Chris, Wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns in Coleshill, April 2017

“I'm so pleased that we hired The Sonics for my party. They were amazing!! Huge range of party music, covers with a twist & great vocals!! They kept us dancing all night and were a really professional, class act. Would thoroughly recommend!”

Jen, 40th Birthday Party at The Ley Inn in Chorley, June 2017

“I wanted to say a huge thank you for being such an amazing wedding band! With half the room a bunch of music snobs and the other half dreading the 'cheesy wedding band music', you managed to win the entire party over. Everyone I've spoken to commented on your performance and how fun and professional you all were. It was slick and sexy and cool. And your vocal range is INSANE! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone getting married or planning a special event.”

Anastasia, Wedding in Cheshire, October 2017

“Absolutely amazing band! Booked The Sonics for our wedding yesterday and they were fantastic! They kept everyone on the dance floor from start to finish and we had so many comments from guests on how good they were! Thank you so much The Sonics for giving us a perfect end to our perfect day!”

Wendy, Wedding in Cheshire, May 2017

“Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for playing at our wedding! You were absolutely fantastic and made our evening do an amazing night that we will never forget! The music was great and you were all so pleasant and professional. Would highly recommend. Thank you again.”

Sarah & Christopher, Wedding in Keswick, May 2016

“What an amazing band! We had done a lot of research leading up to our wedding in July 2016 and we were slightly nervous having not heard the band live first hand but we really shouldn't have been. They blew everybody away on the day, we left the music choice to their own expertise and so glad we did as there wasn't a free space on the dancefloor at one point. We even asked the band to play our first dance song, which was an acoustic cover of At Last by Chris Helme. The singer absolutely nailed it, his vocal range is superb it will be one of those special moments we will always treasure. Thanks again guys, you are amazing! Hope to see you at a gig in Liverpool soon!”

Rachel & Matt, Wedding in Wigan, July 2016

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for making my 40th a night to remember. Top class act and top class guys. Thoroughly professional from start to finish. Everyone commented on how good you were. You kept everyone on the dance floor all night. It made my night and I'll always remember it as being the best. Thanks again.”

Helen, 40th Birthday Party in Cheshire, December 2016
