A very clear and helpful booking service and fantastic music and entertainment on the night. A very friendly band who are keen to please and were hassle free.
Will Bowers, Wedding Event, Cornwall
We would highly recommend the Poptones, we had an amazing evening they played all of the great party hits that kept the dance floor full all night. With a special thanks for learning our first dance song at such short notice. Everyone commented on how great the Poptones were and how good it was to see people playing live music and having so much fun. Thank you for helping to make our wedding so memorable!! From the new Mr and Mrs Bowers
Ariadne Ashby, Wedding Event, Hampshire
Hello, thank you for your superb performance on Saturday at Beaulieu. You kept people on the dance floor all night long! Excellent choice of music played and great vocals. We couldn't have chosen a better band! We had a perfect wedding day. Thank you so much for your contribution. It was also very easy to communicate with Warble and with Nick. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to the band, although my daughter chatted with the singer. I hope that you were well looked after by the Beaulieu team. We would certainly recommend you! Many thanks, Ariadne & Brendan
Louisa Williams, Wedding Event, Cornwall
Brilliant in every respect! Utterly professional and really got the party started. Worked around the fact we were running late and were very flexible and friendly. Awesome singing, amazing set, learnt a new song for our first dance and there's been loads of feedback from our wedding guests about how fantastic you were. Thank you very much indeed for putting the cherry on the icing on the cake of our lovely wedding day. Couldn't recommend you highly enough!
Mario Nugara, Wedding Event, London
They were great and really contributed to the success of the day. Comments from family and friends were truly positive with a number of guests wondering how we had come about them. Really want to thank the Poptones for making our wedding truly memorable. Given that we also had two bands (the other italian), they were very accommodating and worked well with each other.
Richard Smallman, Wedding Event, Buckinghamshire
Hi Jennie, They were AWESOME!!!! Really really pleased, everyone raved about them, thank you so much for setting it up. Richard
Jessie & Chris Hayler, Wedding, West Sussex

Kathryn Tooley, Wedding, Hampshire
Hi Nick, Just wanted to say thank you to all members of the band for playing at Rosie and Ryan's wedding at New Place on Sunday. You were amazing - perfect choice of songs to get everyone up on the dance floor. Lots of the guests said how great you were and you made an enormous contribution to what what was a terrific occasion. Thanks again.
Katherine O'Brien, Wedding, Gloucestershire
Despite the two month delay I would like to say a massive thank you to you all for playing at our wedding. We had an absolutely amazing day and your live entertainment added that little something extra, which was commented on by so many guests. It was great that the dance floor was packed throughout the evening and I loved swirling around like a crazy bride! Thanks again and we'll certainly recommend you to others.
Cass House, Wedding, Bromley, Kent
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you. The Poptones really MADE the night. We were over the moon and lots of the guests had said what a fab choice you were. I had been so worried that people wouldn't dance but from the first song to the last the dance floor was packed. It was truly wonderful, thank you. I can't wait until the next party to invite you back!
Rich Stanley, Wedding, Poole, Dorset
If you could please pass on our thanks to the band for just doing a brilliant job of getting our wedding rocking! We loved them, our mates loved them, and our family loved them! They were definite crowd pleasers and we've had a few people ask for their contact details. Best covers band I've ever heard and the most fun I've ever had! Please pass on our thanks to the band and should we ever throw a big party again we will definitely book them again!
Abi and Georg Stuebner, Wedding, Rose & Crown, Salisbury, Wiltshire
Georg and I wanted to write to you and the other members of Poptones to thank you once more for playing for us on Saturday. In case it wasn't clear by the over loaded, sweat laiden dance floor, our guests adored you. 2 local friends planning their weddings for next year were disappointed they had already booked different bands as they would have booked you if they had had the chance. One friend who is a guitarist was very impressed how you managed to come into Mr Brightside from the unusual mix we had as our first dance. The party really got started when you guys started playing and the atmosphere was electric. Our fond memories of our perhaps quirky wedding will be of standing in the middle of a pulsating dance floor, surrounded by happy faces singing along. We shall continue spreading the word in Salisbury about the band. Thanks for playing for us. All the best.
Mark and Ella Brown, Wedding, Hampshire
Hi Nick, Just a quick note to say a big THANK YOU for the band on Saturday, they were fantastic and exceeded all expectations…. far better than clips on the website even!! Leanne's voice was phenominal and everyone commented on how amazing and tight the band were and made complete an amazing weekend for us. Hopefully you will get some work out of it as well as there were both people getting married in the future and people who have to organise gigs - wouldn't be surprised if you get a call from The Pyramids in Portsmouth!! If you ever gets public gigs please add to any mailing lists you may have… Thanks again.
Martyn & Lianna Leigh, Wedding, Hampshire
Can you pass on my thanks to the members of the band. They were fantastic at our wedding. I could not have been more pleased. It was a perfect day and they were brilliant entertainers, everyone had a wonderful time and we got allot of compliments from our guests. I would definitely recommend them.
Sara and Joey, Wedding, Hampshire
Just a little note to say a big thank you for such a great performance at our wedding reception! The band were fantastic and we were so pleased with how it all went. Several of our guests commented in how good the band were and I think a good indication is when the dance floor is always full. Thanks again for everything, it was perfect.
Tom Curling, Wedding, Dorset
Nick, just to say a massive thanks for putting on an outstanding show at our wedding, have never seen a dancefloor so packed and up for it! Absolutely brilliant. Cheers and let me know if ever you want me to give a recommendation, very happy to. Cheers.
Steve & Marcia Bartlett, Wedding, Dorset
Just a quick e-mail now we are back from honeymoon. Thank you, and please pass my thanks on to all you band members for the performance on Saturday. Everyone commented on how good the band were and obviously did not want them to stop! For myself and Marcia, the performance was an absolute blast and was the best we could have hoped for - the choice of vocals for the songs we had chosen, was brilliant and it was all over too quickly. It all went very smoothly for us and you were all a real pleasure to deal with. Thank you so much and I will be recommending you to anyone I know who wants a band. Best wishes for the future for you and all your musicians.
Tim Muncaster, Wedding, New Forest
Having played in bands myself at hundreds of Wedding Receptions, I wanted something a bit special for my daughter's big day. I found it in Poptones! These guys were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They set up discretely and, when the time came, launched into non-stop music that had the floor full all night. The sound and volume were perfect and the standard of musicianship excellent. What's more, they were great value for money! I would thoroughly recommend this band to anybody who wants a professional show for their special occasion.
Darren & Yanna Waters, Wedding, Hampshire
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping make our wedding day special. Everyone commented on how good you were. You played our first dance note perfect and from that moment everyone was up on the dance floor until you finished. The last 20 minutes of your set went down a storm as you built up to the finale. The day went so quick and there is a lot to take in but you guys stood out as an exceptional feature of an all round superb day. We hope to be able to use you again in the future and will certainly recommend you to anyone who did not go to the wedding.
Dr Stephanie Henson, Corporate Event, Southampton Guildhall, Hampshire
Thank you so much for providing fantastic music for our event last night at the Guildhall. Several people commented to me on how much they enjoyed the band and the music, and of course you got everyone dancing! Many thanks again.
Rich Burrough, Wedding, Hampshire
Poptones were brilliant at our wedding. They played an excellent show, are easy to work with, flexible and accommodating, and genuine people to deal with. I'd recommend them to anyone.
Philip Dennis, Wedding, Hampshire
Thanks to Liz and the guys in the band for their awesome performance last Saturday at the Royal Marines Museum. The dance floor was full throughout their three sets and they did not let up on the tempo for the entire evening. Please pass on my contact details to anyone who wants a reference. Many thanks again.
Aimee and Dave, Wedding, Hampshire
Thanks so much for making the night so fab. We had an awesome time! So many people commented on how brilliant you were and you really did make the night! So glad we booked the band, really worth the money.
Kate Silvers, Social Secretary, Netley Sailing Club, Hampshire
Poptones really made the evening come alive at the sailing club. They played during my 30th birthday and had a brilliant set that had everyone on their feet from word go with a range of music from classics to modern day. Would recommend them and will certainly be booking them for future functions again. A great night!
Alex and Kevin, Wedding, London
Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU! for providing us with great music. Everyone commented on how good you were!
Diane, Classic Sports Car Club, Annual Ball, Oxfordshire
I have never seen the dance floor so full from the first song until the very last. Fantastic performers and all the band was so helpful. Definately will be booking them again next year.
Dan and Helen, Wedding, Cardiff
Thanks for being so brilliant at our wedding! We loved every minute of it. You did a great job on the first dance! Everyone had such a good time, which I’m sure you could tell from the packed dance floor! The music you put on at the end was great...
