Special offer! Book within 7 days of your enquiry and get a FREE laptop DJ service provided by the band (worth £150)

The Vendettas can be booked with a saxophone player for something extra special, as well as an acoustic duo, trio or quartet for some lighter afternoon entertainment.

The band are self-contained with a 2.5kW EV PA system, and a lighting rig consisting of a laser, 2 x dual gem pulse lights, 2 x tri gem LED lights and 3 panel lights that are all sound-reactive and will cover the stage and dancefloor.

The band also offer their own in-house laptop DJ service, offering mixed songs and requests between, during and after their band sets, for a nominal fee. This saves on the additional space, hassle and cost of hiring in a separate DJ and PA system.

Highly recommended!

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.


“Fabulous entertainment. Dance floor was full all night. Catered for everyone. Very impressive.”


“For the party portion of the event we booked The Vendettas who were a great all round party band with a brilliant female singer, we didn’t want too many old/classic songs which seems to take up a lot of the playlists for wedding bands that we looked at, so when we found The Vendettas who did a whole range of music with lots of modern stuff to choose from we knew we’d found a winner. (featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings)”


“I just wanted to say how impressed we with the band. The lead singer was fantastic both vocally and in the way she motivated the guests to get up dancing and the band were great musicians. We are so glad we booked them instead of just having a disco. Please pass on my thanks for making the wedding so memorable!”


“The Vendettas were just brilliant. They were great before the event in planning the evening and the performance on the night was just outstanding.”


“Great service, everyone loved the band and the questionnaire they sent was really good.”


“The Vendettas were fabulous. They were professional, high energy and what an amazing voice the lead singer has! Everyone was dancing for the final set. Feedback since the event has been really good, one group had difficulty leaving on time because they had to stay for just one more dance. Would recommend them 100%.”


“WOW.... WOW... WOW. What an amazing night we had with these guys being our entertainment. All of our guests complimented them and one of my guest who is the biggest social butterfly you could come across said "I have been to some weddings in my life but never one like this and I have NEVER seen a dance floor always full". My husband and myself are so grateful to The Vendettas for providing the music they did to cover all ages and not once did they not go out of their way for the newly weds. XX”


“The Vendettas were absolutely incredible. The dancefloor was packed for their entire set and so many of our guests commented on how good they were. They were really accommodating with our song requests and the lead singer’s rapport with us and our guests was great. We’d certainly reccommend the band to any wedding party. Function Central were also impressive, very responsive and everything ran smoothly.”


“The Vendettas were fantastic, professional and sounded amazing!”


“The Vendettas were absolutely brilliant. From the first phone call a few weeks before, to speaking before the event, the band were very professional, friendly and helpful. They played 3 x 40 minute sets, although the last one was probably more like an hour as we kept asking for an encore as they were so good. Everybody absolutely loved them and loads of people came to me and Becky asking what they were called and where they can book them. The lead singer had the best voice ever. They sang a variety of songs from different time periods and genres but all of it was geared around getting up and dancing which is what we asked for. They sang our first dance song (Ed Sheeran - Perfect) which was amazing as well!! I really can't recommend them highly enough!”


“The Vendettas - amazing! Music was so important to us for our wedding and we certainly made the right choice. From our guests dancing to their soundcheck to everyone shouting for 'more' at the end of the 2nd set. They were versatile, had a wide repertoire and everyone commented on how fantastic they were. Thank you - if we ever need a band again we will be in touch!”


“We had The Vendettas play for our wedding and I can't tell you how fantastic they were. From start to end they were so friendly and helpful which made such a difference as there were a few delays during the day meaning that things were running a bit late but the bad were fantastic, they just took it in their stride and worked around us. The music itself was perfect and they even learnt our first dance! Everybody commented about how good they were. What a fantastic end to a fantastic day and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you!”


“The Vendettas were the perfect choice as our wedding band. They were thoroughly accommodating when it came to our rather pedantic requests and the level of their communication before the event was spot on. Their set was expertly paced and their natural exuberance and energy ensured the dancefloor was the most popular place to be throughout the evening. None of our guests wanted them to finish, demanded an encore, and have all since commented how much they enjoyed the band.”


“You were awesome. Everyone commented on how brilliant you were, which was reflected by the number of folks up on the dance floor from the first to last song. From initial communication to the end of the evening you were all so professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others!”


“They had virtually the entire group on their feet and dancing through each and every set, and where one of the fundamental reasons why the night was such a huge success with much positive and NO negative feedback. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any other function, and would say we WILL be using them again for future functions.”
