“I just wanted to write to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for helping to make our wedding such a great occasion. You gave us a great night's entertainment, the dancefloor was rocking all evening, and we've had so many people saying how great they thought you were - you may well be getting some interest from guests for future bookings! Thanks again for everything. All the best, Ed & Charlie”

Ed & Charlie, Wedding, March 2019

“Thanks for your excellent set on Saturday. Really great. We could not have asked for a better band. Everyone was dancing and really enjoying the music. The band were really great to deal with from initial contact to on the night. They were flexible in their timings as we ran a little late and always on the ball when it came to keeping the evening rocking! Thanks again, I thoroughly recommend this band!”

Freddie, Wedding, November 2018

“We booked The Summertime Blues to perform at our wedding on the 8th September in Bristol, and we had no regrets! Their manager and drummer, was extremely helpful and easy to work with. We discussed a set list that suited the type of wedding evening we wanted, and everything was planned to perfection. The band arrived on time and performed an incredible set list which had everybody dancing and singing all night!”

Joseph, Wedding, September 2018

“Amazing night Saturday! Everyone loved you. When we are back from Honeymoon we will write you a big testimonial and send you some of our professional pics.”

Abbie, Wedding, September 2018

“I just wanted to say thank you for the music at our wedding. The band were fab and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves dancing. I felt like I was dancing all night which is only a positive reflection on you guys!”

Emma, Wedding, September 2018

“I can only give 10/10 across the board. Dealing with Function Central has been so easy and the band were amazing. It was so nice to have so many guests come to me to tell me how brilliant they were. They really got our celebrations off with a bang. The music spanned so many generations, young and old alike were dancing together. I am sure I will be seeing them again in the future and I know several guests asked for their details. A huge thank you!”

Sarah, Wedding in Dorset, September 2018

“Thank you so much for Saturday night. Everyone had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the music. I thought you guys were fantastic. Thanks again, Titus”

Titus, Private Party, August 2018

“Oh my goodness, you guys were absolutely fantastic. Everybody loved you. I only regret that I feel like I didn't dance anywhere near as much but I suppose that was always going to be the way. We would book you again 1000 times. Thank you so much for creating such a fantastic atmosphere for us. Best wishes Emily and Dan”

Emily, Wedding, August 2018

“I never got a chance to thank all the guys in the band. You were fantastic!”

Bill, Wedding, August 2018

“Just wanted to thank you so much for Saturday night, you were brilliant! I have had lovely messages from friends who all seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves and all thought you guys in the band were fab! Thanks again Jackie x”

Jackie, Private Party, August 2018

“Just as a last note from us, we'd like to say thank you to you and the band. You made it a great night for us, people have been complimenting how good the band was and how much fun they had on the dance floor. We'll be spreading your guys names for people that ever require a band for a wedding event. Thank you Nick and Lara”

Nick, Wedding, August 2018

“Really good to meet you and thank you so much for everything. You guys were great!!!”

Dan, Private event, August 2019

“The Summer Time Blues were INCREDIBLE. They made our wedding so special and got everyone on their feet dancing. They are fantastic musicians and lovely guys. Thanks you so much for being so good - my friends and family can't stop talking about you!”

Anna, Wedding in Staffordshire, August 2018

“The Summertime Blues were an absolute pleasure to work with. As the bride, they were wonderful, polite, friendly and stopped to have a chat with me during their break and dinner. Their music was unbelievable, so much fun and energy was put into their performance and it reflected in the energy level of the party. They saved my evening reception from being a complete and utter disaster. The venue’s DJ was completely horrendous and I’ve never seen a dance floor empty so quickly, but as soon as TSTB'S came back, it was completely full and lively again. They were brilliant, I would have them again at any other event I was having, and I would highly recommend them to anyone!”

Kathryn, Wedding in North Yorkshire, July 2018

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for Saturday night. Naomi loved it... as did I and everyone else I’ve talked to. Great music!”

John, Private Party in Oxfordshire, July 2018

“Just wanted to say huge thank you for 23rd July - you were brilliant! I have honestly never had such sore feet the following day.”

Katherine, Private event on, July 2018

“I wanted to let you know how fantastic I thought The Summer Time Blues were when they played at our Wedding. We really enjoyed the sets as they had such fantastic energy and had the whole wedding up on their feet. Musically they were spot on and were everything we wanted out of a rock and roll band. Also considering how much there is to organise for a wedding we also appreciated their professionalism before and during the night. It gave us one less thing to worry about! All in all a massive success! We would highly recommend them.”

Matt, Wedding in Buckinghamshire, June 2018

“The Summertime Blues were fantastic! Everyone said so, both Matt and I were really impressed - my only regret is that at 6 months pregnant I couldn't dance for longer! Please pass on my thanks - Ive recommended them to all my budding friends : )”

Nicola, Private event, May 2018

“Just a short note to say thank you to the band for playing for our AGM dinner last week. I have to say that I had my doubts about having a band – we haven’t had a band for the evening before and I wasn’t convinced that people would get up and dance, but how wrong could I be! We had a fantastic evening, with everyone up on the dance floor till they turned the power off! I have had so many people telling me what a great night it was – and all thrilled by the music. So, a really fine evening, a room full of very happy people and a night to remember. Thanks – and hope we get to use you again.”

Craig, Private event, May 2018

“The Summertime Blues were INCREDIBLE. They made our wedding so special and got everyone on their feet dancing. They are fantastic musicians and lovely guys. Thanks you so much for being so good - my friends and family can't stop talking about you!”
