We were absolutely overjoyed with our choice. Everyone down to the youngest guests of age 2, right up the oldest (won't age shame!) were dancing! Megan, Wedding, London

The guys have in the past been resident musicians in both Regent Street’s uber-cool Cuckoo Club and South London’s entertainment mecca The Bedford. They're also available as a kicking rock covers band, The Wild Nights – our leading wedding band serving the Gloucestershire, Bristol Bath and Somerset area.

Both duo and band are an especially popular choice for boho- or vintage-themed weddings and regularly bring the house down at South West venues such as Pennard House, Tunnels Beaches, Priston Mill and The Kingscote Barn.

The Wild Nights Duo are perfect for weddings and can offer extra performances as well as providing their own laptop DJ service, before, between and after their sets. The DJ service features mixed tunes, a huge catalogue of songs and laser lighting, saving you on the cost and space of hiring a separate act.

“The 'Chill Out' area was where The Wild Nights performed post dinner. The client was very pleased with their performance. Many thanks again to all for their great efforts!”

Clare, Corporate Event in London, July 2019

“We'll never forget their beautiful rendition of 'stand by me' for our first dance, we were both nervous and they made it feel so natural, and when everyone began singing along with the band when the chorus came around... well, it was pure magic. So please pass on my thanks to them for making our evening so perfect.”

Hannah & Charles, Wedding in London, July 2018

“The act were absolutely outstanding, good range of music and very happy with the overall service, also a pleasure to meet them both would deffo recommend and would also book again in the future! Thanks.”

Kristian, HM Forces Christmas Party, Warminster, December 2018

“The act were fantastic. From creating the atmosphere to choosing the right songs. Everyone loved what they did and the manner in which they did it. Would recommend them for any wedding or party.”

Dan & Kerry, Wedding in Devon, August 2018

“The band were good and the girls enjoyed it!”

Sindy, Hen Party in Cheam, June 2018

“Fantastic act, great organisation from the agency, very good!”

Chris & Jamie, Wedding at St. Paul’s in Weston-super-Mare, April 2018

“The Wild Nights Duo fitted all of our criteria for the evening: type of music, range of music, price and availability. I couldn’t have asked for a better band. My favourite moment was when I was at the bar on their third or fourth song and one of my friends come running up to me saying “leave your drinks, these guys are f****** brilliant” before literally dragging me into the marquee!”

Stuart & Nicky, Wedding at The Old Passage in Arlingham, April 2018

“The band were amazing, they were fun and relaxed but very professional. Prior to the wedding they were finding out from us what music we would like in between sets and what type of music that we wanted them to play. Just by looking at their repertoire you can see they cover a wide range. They had people on the dance floor all night and lots of friends and family commented on how brilliant they were. Thank you for making our evening that little bit more special - pure class from start to finish!”

Stef & Nikki, Wedding at Crownhill Fort in Plymouth, June 2017

“The Wild Nights played at our wedding and were absolutely fantastic! Leading up to the event they were great at finding out what tunes I wanted added to the DJ playlist and helping me choose a first dance. On the night, their tunes kept the dance floor packed and I had tonnes of guests and venue staff asking me where I found them. They really nailed it! Thanks guys for the epic music.”

James, Wedding in Somerset, April 2017

“The band were excellent. Great communication before the event and very professional at the wedding. The music they played was great and was commented on by many guests. We would totally recommend them to anyone holding a function. Thank you!”

Katrina, Wedding in Somerset, July 2016

“The band were fantastic. Two played while guests arrived, then for the ceremony and while we had drinks etc. and then the band played again in the evening. Everybody wanted to dance to their great music and they were fun, and really laid back which meant no stress. This was all arranged in less than a week as they stepped in at the last minute when the original band could no longer play. They provided a microphone for the ceremony, organised the music my daughter wanted and were very accommodating as they had to share the evening with a group from Germany. I can recommend them to make your evening special.”

Carolyn, Wedding in Wiltshire, July 2016

“Given their excellent reviews we had high hopes and we were not disappointed, the pair could not have been a better choice. They were incredibly accommodating of our requests, down to earth, friendly, professional and picked up on the relaxed atmosphere of the wedding. I think they got everyone on the dance floor! Our expectations were blown out of the water, we were so so pleased with the band.”

Annie, Wedding in Bristol, July 2016

“We were absolutely overjoyed with our choice. Everyone down to the youngest guests of age 2, right up the oldest (won't age shame!) were dancing and the music they played really appealed to everyone!! I don't think the dance floor was empty at any point! They were both incredibly professional and very helpful in the process leading up to the big day!”

Megan, Wedding in London, July 2016

“Wild nights duo were the ideal way to get our guests dancing in the evening, playing a brilliant variety of music, both recent hits and classics. They were outstanding and we couldn't have asked for nicer people to be involved in our wedding.”

Sam & Jane, Wedding in Bristol, May 2016

“The Wild Nights Duo were fantastic! They were really polite, friendly, and helpful! They had everyone dancing all night, and lots of people commented on how brilliant they were!”

Rosie, Wedding in London, April 2016

“My husband and I were extremely satisfied with the duo, they were very punctual and very professional. We were a bit worried that a duo might not be enough to get people dancing, but everyone was on their feet from the very first song till the very last one. They also have a very good and large repertoire suitable for all tastes. Overall they were excellent, I would highly recommend them!”

Grecia, Wedding in Oxford, September 2015

“The Wild Nights Duo were fantastic. They got everyone dancing and were perfect for the theme of our wedding. They were very relaxed, arrived with plenty of time and set up with no problems. They were very professional and friendly. We asked them to learn our first dance and they did a great job, it was the perfect opening song. They also tailored the playlist to our preferences and were open to suggestions. Overall they were excellent! Would very much recommend them! Thank you guys!”

Leanna, Wedding in Somerset, August 2015

“The Wild Nights Duo were absolutely fantastic, catering for all our guests at our daughter's wedding, from ages 6 - 85! They were a joy to have, extremely polite and efficient and had everyone on the dance floor from the time of their first set until the end of the evening - every guest, bar none, commented on how fabulous they were. Couldn't recommend them more highly!”

Annie, Wedding in Gloucestershire, May 2015

“They were excellent and everyone commented on how good they were. By the end of the night our guests couldn't help but to get on their feet and start dancing. The first dance performance was also fantastic and something we will remember forever. They were friendly and really helpful throughout the planning process and delivered a better than expected set on he night.”

Meghan, Wedding in Gloucestershire, April 2015

“We booked the Wild Night Duo to perform at our wedding reception and cannot recommend them highly enough. The booking and preparation from Function Central and the band themselves was polite, well organised and easy. They arrived early to the reception and were really accommodating when our meal and speeches run over! They adapted their three sets into two longer sets to maximise their playing time. One of our reasons for choosing them was their vast array of songs. They picked a great set list which appealed to all generations of guest. They had the most unlikely guests up dancing and singing. Great memories! We lost count of the amount of compliments we heard about their fantastic vocals and guitar playing. I cannot compliment them enough. Top music, top gentlemen. Do not hesitate in booking the Wild Night Duo, they will not disappoint. Live music every time people!”

Stuart, Wedding in Gloucestershire, December 2014
