Abbey Phillips, Wedding Event, Hampshire
Best night of our life! One Eye On the Wedding Cake just made the night - everyone was dancing and had so many people still talk about it now. Would just like to say a massive thank you to all the band members, you were all amazing! Abbey & Tom x
Caroline Gill, Wedding Event, Warwickshire
The band were fantastic and really made our night! The music was fantastic quality and they performed brilliantly. They were very friendly in the pre-planning of the wedding and very nice on the day too! They played all the songs we asked for and really entertained our guests.
Brit & Ben Williams, Wedding Event, London
One Eye On The Wedding Cake made a fantastic addition to our wedding suppliers. From the great background music during the dinner, to a consistently lively evening party, the whole thing was perfect! We really appreciated the band learning our first dance according to the original track so we could perform our choreography, and they played a great mix of classics and modern songs with a personal twist too! Very professional group with a lot of talent. We would definitely recommend them! Thanks OEOTWC!
Peter Beavis, Wedding Event, Oxfordshire
We booked OEOTWC to play at our wedding. The Warble website provided enough information on a wide selection of potential artists from which to choose from, with many sample tracks. We decided on OEOTWC based on their superb tracks and supporting professionally-shot videos. The booking process via Warble was straightforward and easy. Prior to the event we discussed the playlist and working with OEOTWC we put together a set list of songs for the live acts and the DJ sections of our evening entertainment. OEOTWC have a huge repertoire that they updated to include current chart hits, and we particularly liked their modern renditions which gave our wedding music an up to date feel, with a few classics thrown in too! OEOTWC have been incredibly professional throughout and on the day they did everything to make the evening go so smoothly, from setting up the equipment through to the last dance. They played our first dance live and went on to keep the dance floor packed all night. Superb musicians and also very easy to work with - our guests have all remarked how good they were and we've been told that some couldn't tell when the DJ sets finished and the live music restarted! A fantastic band that finished off our wedding in real style. Pete and Lara (Wedding, August 2013)
Katie Ayano, Wedding Event, Oxfordshire
One Eye On The Wedding Cake played at our wedding, and they were amazing! The music was funky and fun, and the dance floor was packed from the start to the end. The band were also really easy to communicate with before the wedding with song requests and the first dance song. They helped to make our wedding day perfect, and I would recommend them to anyone who needs live music for a wedding or another event!
Ian Hopwood & Tania Zompi, Wedding Event, Staffordshire
Thank you for playing at our wedding on 28/06/13 at Heath House. We thought you were awesome and really got involved in the party! Many people commented on how good you guys were, I know I was dancing all night! Thanks again you made the evening reception what it was, with amazing voices and in particular the guitarists for coming out to the dance floor and rocking out.
Lorna Stevenson, Wedding Event, Oxfordshire
Thank you Warble for sorting out the band for our Wedding on May 1st this year. One Eye On The Wedding Cake were utterly brilliant and lived up to every expectation from their very friendly, approachable and professional presentation online. We can't recommend this band highly enough - bribe them with cake to do your event. Out of everything in our wedding preparation, our band was the easiest of things to organise because they were *so* brilliant at just getting on with what they do superbly (we don't just mean playing but all the other administrative matters and setting up). They and Warble were also very, very fast, prompt and organised at communications which when organising your wedding is absolutely vital. Paul, especially, was brilliant at working in to the recorded music areas pieces the bride kept asking for with utmost patience and execution on the day. Well done Warble - and brilliantly done One Eye On The Wedding Cake - worth every single penny! Thank you so much for such a splendid job for our special day! Lorna and Anthony Stevenson Walker
Alex Barrett, Wedding Event, Warwickshire
We just wanted to say how brilliant One Eye on The Wedding Cake were at our wedding this May. Paul responded really quickly to all our questions and queries and was really supportive in the build up to the big day, they even made a full band arrangement for our first dance. The band were fantastic on the night and lots of guests commented on how good they were. Many thanks to all, Alex and Vicki
Lee Colson, Birthday Party Event, Hertfordshire
The band were fabulous, they were friendly and chatty before the party while they were setting up, particulary Mellisa who had a long chat with my Mum. Then when they started to play they were wonderful, the sound quality of the music and their voices were excellent. We were so happy with their performance we will definitely recommend them to everyone. True professionals, they made my party special, thank you.
Matthew Conway, Wedding Event, Pembrokeshire
A big thanks, and heartfelt recommendations for One Eye on the Wedding Cake. The band were very helpful, professional, and most importantly tore up the dance floor! A fantastic group that had all the guests commenting on them the next day - all postive comments of course. The booking process with Warble was simple and efficient too, thanks to John Wilson for making it so easy.
Rita Fox, Charity Event, Nottinghamshire
Excellent band. Arrived on time. Professional in every way, and very polite to deal with. Would recommend One Eye On The Wedding Cake for your event, very satisfied. Did an excellent job at our Fun Day. Everybody was well pleased with their choice of music. Rita Fox, Organizer, Charity Fun Day
Andy and Nicola Turner. Wedding. Cannock
We booked One Eye On The Wedding Cake on Warble Entertainment, after looking around a few bands. We loved their repertoire and videos and Paul was immensely helpful and friendly in the process leading up to the wedding. We can't express how professional these guys are. From the way they conduct themselves to their equipment, self sufficient set-ups and constant awareness of our flexible schedule throughout the evening. But most importantly, One Eye On The Wedding Cake absolutely took our wedding to another level with their music. They are without a doubt the best wedding/function band around and such incredible musicians and entertainers. Their sets had the dance floor full from their first song to the last. Pleasing people of all ages. English and Scottish! We can't thank them enough for making our reception perfect.
Anita Wright, Regional Managerial Director, Heart FM
I wanted to thank you for helping in making the first Heart Wedding Show a huge success. One Eye On The Wedding Cake really does bring that extra WOW factor to any show and your performance was amazing. You and the rest of the band are a pleasure to work with and I hope Heart FM can work with you guys again.
Charles Godot, Manager. Crowne Plaza, Abu Dhabi.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your excelent performance and the level of professionalism you showed in the New Year's Eve Party that was held at the Stills European Bar and Brasserie at Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi Yas Island. Your excellent performance had given our guests such a wonderful time in celebrating their New Year's Eve Party.
Rachel and Nick Finnigan, Wedding, Sheffield
What a band and what a show! The band played a fantastic selection of songs to suit all our guests meaning the dance floor was full all night! It was especially lovely to have our first dance played live and having the full band including the brass section gave for an even fuller sound! The band were extremely professional and clearly highly skilled musicians, this was echoed by the comments my wife and I received from all out family and friends. We really cannot recommend these guys highly enough!
Kate and Dan Cashman, Wedding, Oxford
We just wanted to thank you absolutely incredible amounts for the fantastic music you guys provided. We thought you were going to be good - but WOW! Your duo just set the perfect scene as people entered the garden and your performance of 'Feels Like Home' was, no exageration, better than the original! The band really got the party going (you even had our old school teachers up and dancing!) and everybody we spoke to said how incredible you were (they were all trying to think of events they could throw so they had a reason to hire you!) We honestly cannot thank you enough for giving us and all our guests such a fantastic evening to remember. Many many thanks
Stacey Nicola, Wedding, West Midlands
I decided to be devious and give my sister the very important job of finding a band for my wedding day. As we'd not seen them, we did not know what to expect, but as soon as they began to play their first song we knew we had made a fantastic choice. They had our family and friends up on their feet all night. Their range of songs was fantastic and they are all very talented musicians. The challenge is now, finding a reason to hire them again. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a good time. They truly contributed to an amazing wedding day!
Mr and Mrs Evans, Wedding, West Midlands
The band were absolutely incredible, everyone was dancing from the first note, fantastic repertoire…they totally made our day!!
Mr and Mrs Lowe, Party, Sutton Coldfield
Stunning musicians, fantastic image, top performance. Couldn’t have asked for more!!!
J. Suttcliffe, 21st Party
I hired OEOTWK for my daughters 21st and her friends didn’t leave the dance floor all night. Incredible band and lovely people. I’ll be recommending them to all my friends.
One Eye On The Wedding Cake played at our charity ball and since everyone has been asking us for their details. I’ve booked a lot of bands but I’ve never worked with a band like One Eye On The Wedding Cake, top pro’s.
