“Booked The Sonics for my wedding and they was first class, excellent band really nice lads. Wow they can perform! They had everyone dancing away all night, just fantastic, couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you soooo much to The Sonics. The agency was easy to book the band.”

Kim, Wedding, Colshaw Hall Country Estate in Cheshire, October 2019

“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

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!”
