“Brilliant band and 100% recommend!!! We had them for our wedding in Somerset. Great communication, played all of the type of music we requested, they got everyone up dancing (and laughing with their sense of humour) and it was all done in a professional way. Hope one of our friends uses them in the future so we get to see them again. A big thanks guys! Love, the new Mr and Mrs Powell xxx”

Kay and Andrew, Coombe Lodge, Somerset, February 2020

“The band were a great group of guys who were really helpful and put on a great show. They were great with obliging with the few requests we had and really made the evening. Their DJ set at the end was great as well, they really tailored it for us and it just capped off the night! The function central booking service was really easy as well.”

Daniel, Wedding, Donnington Park Farmhouse in Derby, December 2019

“We booked The Spooks for our wedding at Elmore Court. From the beginning we had excellent communication from the band regarding timings, playlist etc. On the day everything was seamless and we had rave reviews from our guests! They really know how to read the room and kept the dance floor full. Thanks guys :)”

Jodie and Andy, Elmore Court, Gloucestershire, October 2019

“We had hard to handle at our wedding in August 2019. They were fantastic! They sang our chosen songs and then ensured that they had our wedding party up and dancing all night. They were so enthusiastic and attempted to fit in all requests. They were professional and their communication was second to none. We would definitely use them again at any parties or celebrations we have and would highly recommend anyone else to use them too!”

Sarah and James, Beedles Lake golf club, Leicester, August 2019

“The Spooks performed at our wedding on Friday and were absolutely brilliant. I didn’t stop dancing all night. The sound was fantastic and our guests loved it. Thank you so much to all of you for making our wedding reception the best!”

Hayley and Sam, Hadley Park House Hotel, Shropshire, August 2019
