Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“The Starlighters are without a doubt the best function band around. I have attended a few weddings where they’ve been booked and they never disappoint. Loads of energy to get the crowd going, super talented musicians, amazing set list, male & female vocalists, confetti cannons...what more could you want? A few of my friends have booked them and have said how extremely well organised they are. If you’re looking for a band, look no further!”

Joanna Holcombe, Wedding guest

“The party never stopped, some of the best musicians I’ve heard! Song choice was perfect and everybody loved it! Highly recommend.”

Lee, Private Event

“As a DJ I worked alongside this band at Rowhill Grange and they were amazing and really pleased the whole crowd! Highly recommended.”

Jamie, DJ, Rowhill Grange

“Booked for our wedding, absolutely smashed it out the park. Highly recommend if you're looking for quality, fun & flexibility. They have no problems getting a room dancing all night!”

Shaun, Wedding

“A very massive thank you to The Starlighters who played at our wedding reception in cold January. After being at weddings they have played at before (my brothers, sisters and family friends) we knew they were the band to play at ours too...although we live miles apart. The whole band where absolutely brilliant, from leading up the the big day and on, everyone was dancing and since have only praised and asked who the band where! We could not recommend them enough and want to say a massive thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special!”
