The Kickstarts made an amazing day even better and were more than we could have hoped for. Professional and polite from start to finish. They bring an amazing energy to the dance floor, which was full all night. All our guests commented how they were the best band they have seen at a wedding by far. Can't recommend these guys highly enough.

These guys played at our wedding on Saturday, they were awesome! They started with a brilliant version of "Let's Stay Together " by Al Green for our first dance and then had people dancing on the tables before they finished their first set. They arrived on time, played 3 sets & rocked the place! We had people asking us for their details during the night! Can't recommend them highly enough, we didn't want the night to end! Thanks lads for making our perfect day complete! All the best, the bride & groom, Dawn & Paul. Xx

The Kickstarts went down a treat at our wedding. Would highly recommend them. The dance floor was never empty.
, Wedding Event, Cumbria
5/5
The guys were totally professional but also really down to earth and friendly. They were flexible with their set list and learnt our first dance for us (a rather unknown song) rather than do the easy option and stick on a recording of it. Everybody commented on how great they were and the dance floor was packed. We would have no hesitation in recommending them, and to be honest are thinking of times that we could use them again! Thanks very much guys!
, Wedding Event, Cheshire

Cannot possibly speak highly enough of these guys - the dance floor was packed out all night and our guests have not stopped complimenting them!! They had everyone from my 2 year old niece to my 92 year old nanna dancing and are really nice, hard working guys to boot. Thanks for making our wedding amazing!

I hired the Kickstarts for a surprise party, they were brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble, they altered their set to incorporate songs I specifically wanted, adjusted the times of their set because people were still eating... they thought of everything! Very talented they made the whole night a success, I would definitely recommend them and the booking process through Warble was so simple! Many thanks to you all.
, Wedding Event, Cumbria
5/5
The Kickstarts, "these guys rock", "this is brilliant", "best band I've heard in ages" and "I'm booking these guys" were all quotes from the night. From the outset they made the night for us nothing was to much trouble from changes in timings to slight changes in the set list. Their performance was outstanding with a good mix of songs for all ages, with the DJ set in between it really made a seamless transition ensuring the dance floor was never empty. When I spoke to Seb on the run up he finished the conversation by saying "we're here to make sure you guys have a good time" and we certainly did. Dealing with Warble has been a pleasure and really taken the stress out of the process from allowing you to sample songs from the band to clear and concise contracts the whole process has been effortless.

The Kickstarts were brilliant at our wedding!! We've been to 4 weddings recently and 2 of them had bands and the others didn't. A band makes all the difference to the evening atmosphere and I can't recommend Kickstarts enough. They were by far the best wedding band I've ever heard! Really confident set and a great mix of old and new. Really made our day! Thanks guys.

Wanting to arrange a good night for family and friends, but not knowing which way to turn.... we did. We spoke to a lovely young lady from Warble, she gave us some options.... we chose The Kickstarts, and the rest is history. What a fantastic night...... great music, 3 great lads and everyone wanting more, couldn't have wished for a better night. If you are looking to be entertained, give these guys a call............ You Won't Be Disappointed!

Simply the best band us or any of our guests have seen at a party. They were unbelievable and had everyone on the dance floor from first dance to end of the night. One of them even came onto the dance floor to be in amongst it, was brilliant. So many people asked for their name. All I can say is you will not find a better band. We spent a while looking, and so pleased we did. Thank you so much to each one of you for making it the best day of our lives.

We arranged to have The Kickstarts play at our wedding last Saturday night and I can safely say Seb and the guys rocked our socks off!!! Professional, on time and totally amazing music. These guys are brilliant!!!!! Everyone who attended said the same. If the Kickstarts ever need a reference from any other brides or grooms just let me know. My husband and I loved every minute of each set they performed. The groom loved Johnny B Goode. Thank you for all your help in making our special day such a huge success. Regards Mr & Mrs Crabtree.

Quite simply, The Kickstarts were absolutely amazing at our wedding yesterday! Everyone commented on how much energy and talent the guys had. The band got everyone up and on the dance floor and really got the party going! The set list was spot on and included special requests such as our first dance which the band learnt and performed.. All our guests commented on how great they were and even after a 2 hour set, the guys managed to include a spontaneous sing-a-long that showed the band just wanted to make sure our guests had the best possible night! Would love to see The Kickstarts again!! Thanks so much, Andy & Frey

These guys are class! They were fantastic on Saturday night, thoroughly enjoyed by Susie and myself and all of our guests. Some of our guests have even requested us to find out where they can go and see them play again as they wanted more! Great array of tracks and even did a great job of our one special request ("Ho Hey" by the Lumineers). If you want a live act at your occasion then book the Kickstarts! Thanks again lads, Ant & Susie :-)

, Charity Event, Lancashire

Our event was a charity fundraiser with 260 guests which varied from employees, employees partners, suppliers, management and Managing Directors. To try and find entertainment to match this wide range of people was difficult but ‘The Kickstarts' certainly stepped up to the mark. Once they got started you could not keep anyone off the dance floor!! They were the perfect entertainment to a perfect evening and the feedback has been overwhelming for not just the evening but the band as well!! I would recommend to anyone to use Warble Entertainment, they are very accommodating to your requirements, have a very varied range of entertainment and will even make suggestions if you can’t decide. I wish ‘The Kickstarts' every success in the future.

We would just like to say a big thank you! The process was easy to book the band and Seb contacted us just over 3 weeks before our wedding and incorporated all of our requests into the music that was played during the evening. The music was brilliant! A lot of our guests said throughout the night and afterwards that they had really enjoyed the music. Songs for everyone and brilliant sing a-longs. The music in between the 2 sets was also great and requests were taken - even Busted tracks (oh dear!). Our guests danced throughout the night! It really made our day - fantastic! :) The mom's of children at the wedding loved that they took swear words out of one of the tracks! Thank you again - highly recommended!!

Hi Jennie, Sorry its taken me so long to get back to you with some feed back. As always running flat out my end. Firstly, I would like to thank you. I was so nervous using an entertainments company for the first time having had absolutely no previous experience of this kind of thing at all. I found you to be very knowledgeable about your artist and you really listened to my criteria, wants and needs and matched them brilliantly. You really did make the process feel personal and cared for. You absolutely understood the pressure I was under to 'get it right'. So again, a really big thank you. Now as for The Kickstarts, I will say to you the same as I have said to them. If one more person tells me (and please bear in mind we had 150 guests) how brilliant, amazing and absolutely awesome the band were I might just kill myself. They took all the limelight, rightly so, and they turned a good party into the party by which all others will be judged. They really did do a great job. Seb was great at helping to make sure we had the right mix of music and they happily added a couple of extra songs to their play list which my husband really likes, which was a really great touch. They were happy to turn the volume down a little when people still wanted to talk at the start of the night and were very accommodating when a family friend wanted to play and sing a song for my husband. They really could not have been more professional and I am so, so glad that we booked them. I really hope they pick up further gigs as a result as lots of our guests are in a position (through corporate events) to potentially book them. I really hope this helps with the guys and your profiles. Many, many thanks again and all the very best to all of you. Kind regards, Charlotte Carnaby

Can't rate these guys highly enough! They played at our wedding and had everyone up on the dance floor all night! They are lovely lads, very professional, have a fab mix of Songs in their sets and they sound amazing! They went above and beyond to mix our African music into their own music for the DJ slots and weren't fazed when our Afrcian music amounted to four full length CD's!! They were that good that after their last song finished they were assaulted by the sound of all our guests screaming we want more at them!

Even with a small turnout, the band didn't drop their guard, and still played fantastically, making the event worth turning out for! The next few days at work, those who did attend, made sure the guys who didn't, knew that they had missed a memorable evening!! The "Kickstarts" were awesome! If the occasion arose, I would definitely book them again!! If this was to happen, I believe the venue would be packed! Well done for a brilliant evening gents! :)))

The Kickstarts were a fantastic part of our day and helped to make our memories all the more special. All our guests commented on how great they were, they really got everyone dancing. We had problems with timings due to things over running on the day and our last minute confirmation of the live music license time, but they were so accommodating and made sure everything ran smoothly. Their set list has something for everyone, we and our guests would definitely recommend them to anybody that wanted live music at their event. Mr & Mrs London

Although it was quite a daunting task, as I have no experience of party organising at all, the whole system was very easy and all staff at Warble were very supportive. The Kickstarts were fantastic. It was an 18th birthday party, but we were accommodating lots of different age groups. Their music suited everyone and the dance floor was full all night! The guys were a pleasure to have - they worked hard, they were easy going and their music was fab. I would highly recommend them and if I ever need a band again, they will be the first people I call. Many thanks for giving the evening a great atmosphere.

Just returned from honeymoon and have to say that we are both absolutely over the moon with the Kickstarts. From start to finish they were helpful, very quick at responding to queries and questions. As for the performance they were impecable, full of energy and kept our wedding rocking until the small hours. Numerous people have said who were the band and where did you get them from and I am very pleased to say that they were The Kickstarts from Warble. Thank you Seb and band members without a doubt made our night unforgettable!!

The Kickstarts were absolutely brilliant!! Right from the start - booking was easy and requests were accommodated, even a last minute first dance song change. The dance floor was packed all night - even guests who wouldn't have normally danced, were up for a boogie! My bridesmaid said to me: "I want to take a break - but every song is SO good!" The Kickstarts gave us excatly what we wanted - a night to remember, for us and for all of our guests! I only wish we were planning another event, as we would book them again in a heartbeat! Thanks so much guys!! Fantastic!!

Kickstarts were absolutely amazing. Great acoustic first dance of our favourite artist Newton Faulkner. Their performance throughout the night was exceptional even with our delays. With many musicians attending as guests to the wedding their comments of how amazing the band were show the quality of the band. Thanks for making our day so extra special!

Hi, first of all, I just want to apologise for this late response. Me and my wife just had so much to do since we got married. We booked the Kickstarts for our evening wedding reception on the 26th May 2012 at the Reebok Stadium and they were absolutely fantastic!!! I must say a really big thankyou to Sam who recommended them!! I must admit I was a bit worried when I booked through the web site, as we did not know what to expect, having not listened to the band, would they be any good etc etc. All our fears were soon forgotten, from the moment I spoke to one of the band members Seb, who put me at ease, went through the songs and set lists to the band performing on the night!! They were brilliant and I can't praise them highly enough!! Not only are they great musicians, but they are really nice lads as well! Everybody was and still is commenting on how good they were!! They really helped to make our wedding special, and had some good banter with our dancing DJ!! I would definitely book the the Kickstarts again and would recommend them to anybody, who wants a live band that has 3 great musicians, with great songs and fantastic energy!! Thanks again, Sam, Seb and the lads!!!

We would like to say that the whole process from booking the band through to the band playing for us was effortless. Warble Entertainment were very easy to deal with and it all went very smoothly. The Kickstarts were excellent when they played for us at our wedding. They contacted us 3 weeks before the big day as arranged and were very keen to play the music we wanted. Everybody at the wedding told us how much they enjoyed the performance. Thanks guys!!

Wow Boys, what can I say??? You were fantastic! Geared the party totally to an 18th birthday and made the night rock. Fab artists, fab entertainment and you were so accommodating to a rowdy bunch of teenagers. I understand you do fantastic weddings venues, but to be able to turn it around and tune in to the more energetic style of entertaining drunken kids was truly awesome. They had a fantastic time and us older ones also totally enjoyed your music. Fantastic night made perfect by the KICKSTARTS. Totally recommend the lads. and a huge THANK YOU.

Hi Matt, Firstly I would like to apologies for my delay in getting back to you. We have just returned from our honeymoon and are entering our way back in to the real world!! The Kickstarts were fantastic at our wedding reception. They were in touch before hand to sort out any requests we had as well as things like timings for the day etc. They were more than happy to learn and perform our first dance. The whole booking process was very easy and we felt very reassured with the contracts you had sent over.

As standard The Kickstarts perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets.

Because The Kickstarts want you to have the whole night's entertainment sorted when you hire them, the band offers a FREE DJ option that runs when the band are not performing.

The DJ option is performed by a member of the group operating a laptop with the most current DJ mixing software and party classics on hand to keep the party jumping! The benefits of this service are that your guests are able to make requests for the DJ to play, and with the DJ being a member of the band and sharing their equipment, the space utilised at the venue is kept to a minimum... and so looks very tidy and leaves more room for DANCING!
