“Without a doubt, fantastic group, all my guests where impressed! Fantastic performance and sound, brilliant! Great lads and very down to earth!”

Neil & Heather, Wedding, July 2019

“The Straw Dogs arrived and set up on schedule, even though we weren't! Barely noticed them set up, they were very quiet and were careful not to interrupt speeches etc. Very professional and polite and great communication – we were so pleased. I would definitely book them again for future functions. Everyone really enjoyed them.”

Laura & Thomas, Wedding, July 2019

“The Straw Dogs were the ultimate professionals from initial contact about song choices right through to the end of their three sets. They arrived on time, set up quickly and looked and sounded the part! You can always judge how good a band is on how many people are dancing and the dance floor was full all night. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending The Straw Dogs to anyone. We were all really thrilled to have had you playing at the wedding and I hope we can work together in the future.”

Suzanne, Wedding, July 2019

“The Straw Dogs are absolutely brilliant, we had so much fantastic feedback from our guests, everyone was blown away by their performance. They were so easy to talk to and made sure that we were 100% happy with everything, could not recommend more highly!”

Helen, Private Party, July 2019

“First off you guys were amazing, we have had so many people say that you are by far the best wedding band they have scene and to be honest I have not seen/heard a band of your quality for a very long time. Secondly because of the wedding and me mooching around, drinking heavily and chatting to everyone in the evening me and Alison would like to come and see you guys perform live again. You are great people, great musicians and our guests thought you were terrific.”
