David Robinson, Wedding Event, Durham
AMAZING!!! These guys made our evening wedding reception. They arrived in good time, were set up in good time and played exactly what they said they would and more. Only 2 weeks ago we asked them if they could play our first dance song which had never played before or even heard of I think but come the night they did it perfect and better than our expectations. 3 really nice guys who talked to many of the guests. Have not spoken to a guest from our wedding yet that has not said the band were great, where were they from and where did we find them. Would recommend to anyone and would use again ourselves. Fantastic! Thank you very much for helping make our day the perfect day it was. Thanks David and Nina Robinson.
Shaun Lay, Wedding Event, North Yorkshire
Our wedding day in March was one of the snowiest days of the year and we had visions of all sorts of people cancelling due to icy roads getting to the venue. However, the Story were there early and performed 2 great sets that everyone seemed to enjoy. Since the wedding we have had loads of people telling us how great they thought the band was.
Janine Paterson, Wedding Event, Denbighshire
The Story were absolutely amazing! They made our wedding that extra bit special, and its all that our guests have been talking about since!
Ian Ledson, Wedding Event, Caernarvonshire
We booked the band for our wedding in Conwy on Easter Sunday 13, they were fantastic! Set lists worked and the dance floor was full all night. We asked for a particular song for our first dance, which they didn't usually perform but they put it together and it was fab. Friends talk about the band before the bloody wedding :) Great lads who really seemed to enjoy themselves. Recommend wholeheartedly.
Graeme Sullivan & Rebecca James, Wedding Event, Merseyside
Very friendly group. Great party starters. Had everyone dancing from start to finish. Would Recommend.
Pete O'Brien, Birthday Party Event, South Yorkshire
Had a great night on our 'Son in Laws' surprise birthday party with Story entertaining us through the evening. Likeable set of lads who are obviously very talented vocally and musically. The range of music on the live sets was superb and the choice on these sets was well varied. Would not hesitate in hiring them again in the future and recommending them to family and friends etc. A good night which was very memorable and enjoyed by all.
Daniel Clark, JMW Solicitors LLP, Corporate Event, Greater Manchester
The guys did a great job at our Christmas Party. Feedback was very positive from all that attended. Would have no hesitation is recommending them. Thank you.
Ben Redshaw, Private Party Event, North Yorkshire
Really good performance from the guys many thanks for all your help!!
Natalie Reed, Wedding Event, North Yorkshire
What can we say about The Story other than they were FANTASTIC! They listened to all of our requests prior to the wedding and the set list and DJ tracks they came up with were phenomenal. So much so that all of our guests commented on how brilliant they were and some have even talked of booking them for their own wedding! I can't say thank you enough to the guys - our guests literally did not want to go home. They created a brilliant atmosphere where everyone wanted to get up and dance, including our Dads! Matt and I want to say we could not have picked a more talented group of people to make our evening reception so special - THANK YOU!
Frances Robson, Wedding Event, West Yorkshire
They were absolutely incredible. The whole place rocked. The buzz phrase of the day after has been "Who were that band? They were amazing". They were so helpful, accommodated our requests to sing (and accompanied my husband), and altogether a lovely bunch of lads. Thanks very much.
Cheryl Douglas, Birthday Party Event, Lancashire
Thanks to 'The Story' for making our party special. We wanted a band that could rock out at a festival style 40th, they did not disappoint. They were high energy and got everyone dancing. I would certainly recommend them to play at any of our friends parties and it would be great to see them play again. Hope they enjoyed playing the pyramid stage!!
Helen Beaumont, Birthday Party Event, Cheshire
The Story were great! They are a great band & got my friends up and dancing all evening, Thanks Helen
Glen Binns, Wedding Event, Cumbria
We booked The Story for our Wedding Day after hearing a track on the agency's website. We thought the lads sounded pretty good. After a brief chat on the phone and exchanging a few emails with the bands drummer we knew we were in good hands as nothing was too much trouble for them, they were happy to assist us wherever they could and sounded genuinely pleased to do so. The lads landed, set up in a blink of an eye and rocked the place. The music was ace, they sounded great and everybody and I mean everybody loved them!!! I honestly could not sing the praises of these lads highly enough. Our day overran as I'm guessing most weddings do, the lads stayed and played on well over the agreed time with out even batting an eyelid. Their choice in music and tracks to play is exactly what was needed for our day, everything from The Killers to The Beatles, The Kaiser Cheifs to the Black Eyed Peas. The lads even played "Happy Birthday" at midnight for my wife's brother who's birthday it was. There are many band out there that will cost you double maybe even triple what The Story would cost you but I guarantee would not be half as good as these guys. I cannot thank the boys enough for such a huge contribution to making our special day so great. Thank you so much fella's. I hope to hear you play again at some of my friends weddings and I'm sure I will as I've given your details out to quite a few of them already. All the best, Glen & Katharine Binns
Sam Kielly, Wedding Event, Cumbria
The booking process was easy and the staff at Warble were friendly and professional. The lads turned up on time at the venue having travelled quite a way, and were absolutely brilliant, they made the night. We were a little apprehensive as we had never heard them play but we needn't have worried, they were great. We had so many comments on how good they were, we would recommend them to anyone. What a great bunch of lads, thank you so much and we wish you every success in the future, you deserve it!!!
Gareth Hall, Wedding Event, Cheshire
The Story played at our wedding and were great! Played lots of classics such as The Killers, Kings of Leon etc. and had everyone up dancing! I'd highly recommend them to others!
Sue Pickering, Wedding Event, Staffordshire
The guys arrived early and fitted in with the other entertainers who were helping us to celebrate my daughters wedding. Exceptionally professional and the two sets they did for us literally raised the roof - everyone was on the dance floor or bopping along. I cannot recommend them highly enough - if you are looking for a group to make the party 'bang along' - these are the guys. Also - highly professional and very friendly - Excellent.
Tim Hoadley, Wedding Event, Yorkshire
Great Band - dead easy-going and accomodating. Booking process was simple and both agency and act were really helpful. The band took on board the type of music we wanted and the choices on the night were spot on. They even halted their set because we forgot to cut our cake!! Cheers guys!!
Sarah Westcott, Wedding Event, Cheshire
Amazing. Booking was really easy and the band got in touch before hand to go over the details. On the night their choice in music was spot on and got everyone singing and dancing along. Loads of people commented on how fantastic they were so thanks lads! Would definately recommend!
Charis Holmes, Wedding Event, Pembrokeshire
Absolutely amazing band! Nothing negative to report at all, guests loved them, we loved them, one of the best parts of our wedding day. Very kind, accommodating, and they enjoyed themselves too, which made it even better! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
John Delaney , Wedding Event, Lincolnshire
Great show last night at Craig and Ada's wedding. Sound was spot on and you rocked Harlaxton Manor. Thanks for the chance to sing Dakota with you guys. Great fun!
Heather Knapp, Wedding Event, Derbyshire
Everybody commented on how good you all were and if anything we would have liked more. The dance floor was never empty, even when they were serving food, couldn't fault anything would recommend you again any time.
Ashley Travis, Wedding Event, Cheshire
Great band! Great bunch of lads! Would highly recommend. We had them for live entertainment at our wedding in between two DJ sets. The guests absolutely loved them. They played full sets of modern rock and classic pop hits meaning that all guests (young and old!) had something they enjoyed listening to and dancing to. Live music really made our evening extra special and helped to get everyone on the dance floor! They also stayed after their set to have fun and to enjoy the atmosphere and chat to the guests. Really glad we hired them.
Sam Humpston, Wedding Event, Greater Manchester
The band were amazing!! Really professional, turned up very early to set up and familiarise themselves with the venue, and when they did play were fantatsic. Played two sets and got everyone up and dancing and kept the dance floor packed throughout. Great voices, very accomodating, took some requests on the night and nothing was too much trouble. The icing on the cake for our wedding day, we would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone whatever the event / function! Thanks guys! Sam & Vicky Humpston
Mark and Lynn Slade, Wedding Event, Derbyshire
We had a brilliant Wedding and having 'The Story' perform at our Evening Reception made it just a perfect day. The band were superb - All 3 gents were well mannered, professional, sounded brilliant and performed a wide repetoire of songs to suit all tastes. All of our guests commented on how great they were. We were amazed. We would highly recommend 'The Story'. Thanks guys. You played a key role in making our wedding day the best day of our lives and we will be eternally grateful. Mark and Lynn Slade :-)
Steve Kirk, Private Party Event, Cheshire
The night was a perfect success, with "THE STORY" making it so. The only problem, the night it went so quick. The guys were really poilite and chatted with the guests during the interval. The songs played suited exactly our taste in music. Since the party we have received many texts, phone calls telling us how good they thought the band were. Would have no problem in recommending The Story for future events. A real big thank you guys from Ann-Marie and Steve.
Dave and Jane Frape, Wedding Event, Cheshire
The Story were brilliant at our wedding and all of our guests have been telling us so ever since. It was a great mix of music and really well performed. Not once was the dancefloor empty throughout the night and they were equally popular with the guests of all ages. We were a bit nervous about booking a band for our big day without having ever seen them but they exceeded what we hoped for with their performance and were very accommodating and professional when we were running late. We found dealing with The Story and Warble extremely easy and would recommend both to anybody.
Barry Hunt and Stacey, Wedding Event, Lancashire
Thank you so much to The Story for helping make our wedding day such a special one - they were fantastic! Playing acoustically prior to and after the ceremony added a special touch and we were so glad we asked them to do it, something which they were more than willing to do. The band also learnt about 10 songs we said we liked which included our first dance song which was absolutely word and note perfect. Feedback from all our guests was excellent. Thank you so much - we will highly recommend to everyone!!
Rachel Hamilton, Wedding Event, Cumbria
The Story were amazing and really made the wedding party come alive. There wasn't a second that passed when the dance floor wasn't bouncing! Everyone commented about how good they were. A fab group of lads - we'd recommend them to anyone and wish them all the best in their future careers. The new Mr & Mrs Cain x
Phil Reynolds, Wedding Event, Merseyside
Excellent band who kept the party going all night long. The Story had something for everyone, mixing it up from 60's Beatles / Kinks up to songs topping the charts more recently such as Lady Gaga / Black Eyed Peas and everything in between. They're very talented individuals who become even better together. They even took requests on the night - Dancing in the Dark being a highlight. Thanks for a great night, we all loved you.
Steve Thompson & Pamela Thompson, Birthday Party Event, Yorkshire
Wow! Wow! Wow! These lads were absolutely terrific. They had the unenviable task of entertaining at a joint 50th & 18th party. We picked them for their wide range of music. The dance floor was buzzing and everyone was commenting on how good they were - even the steward of the club ! The whole process from booking to the end of the night was simple. Adam was in touch about the music we liked and nothing was too much trouble. So to the lads - Many, many thanks.
Vicki Jagger, Birthday Party Event, Lancashire
Absolutely Fantastic! They were everything they advertised to be. They've gained loads of new fans, special thanks to Adam who gave one of the kids his broken drumstick, she was made up with it! Thanks again, I had a fab party and you definitely made it amazing!
Sharon Dawson, Corporate Event, Cheshire
'The Story' are fantastic - really nice lads, fantastic music and great rapport with their audience. Would definitely recommend them.
Jan Chilton, Birthday Party Event, Montgomeryshire
Booking with Warble Entertainment was very straightforward, The Story did all they promised and more, they happily adjusted their play list for us, got in touch when they said they would, arrived in plenty of time. This is what I emailed directly to them; 'We have had masses of feedback about the party and without exception everyone has raved about 'The Story', and the phrase that has been repeated over and over again is 'you were outstanding'. Thanks again for making our party so successful and getting everyone on the dance floor, young and old. What a night! Your are not only a talented band you are thoroughly professional team and we would recommend you to anyone.' If any potential customers wish to contact us about them, we would be more than happy to say lots positive things about them. Thanks again, Jan.
Nadia Boardman, Birthday Party Event, Cheshire
Hi Tracey, a big thank you to Warble for recommending The Story and promptly dealing with all my other requests. It's always a bit nerve wracking when you a book a band that you've never seen or heard before but the lads were just great. Great vocals and music, nothing too much bother, great attitude and extremely helpful. My guests have done nothing but sing their praises and I would have no hesitation in recommending them in the future. Here's wishing them every success as is justifiably deserved.
Kate Absolom & Kieran Chatterton, Private Party Event, Derbyshire
Thank you so much for making our party go with a bang. We've had so many comments from our guests on how great you were. We really appreciated your professional but relaxed manner and your flexibility with timings when things went a bit off course! Lots of luck to you, we'll certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a band in the future.
Jake and Sally Hardy, Wedding Event, Derbyshire
We were so impressed with the lads from the Story. They contacted us in advance to discuss our needs and even learnt our first dance especially, which they performed perfectly. They arrived on time and had a great set up. Played a wide range of songs, everyone danced all night. All our guests thought The Story were awesome! They are really nice guys who will make any event that extra bit special and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else. They made an amazing wedding day beven better!
Mark Vernon & Caroline Anderson, Wedding Event, Northumberland
Brilliant band, everyone up dancing and having a great time. A polished performance of great variety. Awesome if you are wanting to party these are the guys for the job. Brill!!
Majella Kennedy, Wedding Event, Greater Manchester
The band were totally amazing and far exceeded our expectations. They contacted us prior to our wedding to make the arrangements, play lists etc and were most helpful with their advice and completely listened to our wants and needs. On the day they were punctual and worked with ease around our timing issues. When they were on stage they got all the guests up and dancing during the first song (they were so great you couldn't stay in your seat!)! They started amazingly well and just got better (we didn't think this possible). All our guests were in awe of them and the songs they played- great music, lovely lads and so accommodating to our needs. We cannot praise them enough- great voices and music. We would book them anytime and many of our friends have asked for their details as all our guests were so impressed. They made our wedding celebration a night to remember! Thank you. x
Dianne OBrien, Private Party Event, North Yorkshire
Lived up to all expectations, still talking about them now! We wish them every sucess.
Kelly, Hotel Event, Cheshire
The Story are a great band and we really enjoyed having them at The Crown. We have received very positive feedback from all our customers and we will be in touch to book them again. Well done boys great night. Thanks
Sharon Dawson, Private Party Event, Cheshire
Hi Tracey, The Story were fantastic :-) They played great music, were lovely lads and even accommodated all the kids wanting to play the drums at the end! I think we will definitely be in touch with them again.
Liz Harris, Party, Cheshire
Could you pass on our deepest thanks to The Story for a fantastic night. As soon as they started I knew we were in a safe pair of hands and they went far above all expectations. Everybody loved the band and they even stuck around after to boogie! The bad news is that it's a week later and I still have a hangover!
Sara Jackson, Wedding, Camforth
I just wanted to say thanks so much for arranging for The Story to play at our wedding, they were superb! The band made the evening for us and our guests! The music from start to finish was brilliant and the band looked to be having as much fun as we were! I would recommend them in a heartbeat! Thanks again.

Hi Tracey, the guys were so great. It was quite scary booking a band we hadn’t seen before but we could not believe our luck when they started playing, they were so good!! If anyone is thinking about hiring a band, these guys will definitely get the party going. And thanks to you Tracey as well for recommending them and providing such a good service.
Because The Story realise that every Wedding and event is different they are happy to build a bespoke package just for you. This has proven extremely popular with many couples and could include:
* Earlier Set-Up - to avoid disturbing the ambience if everything is taking place in the same room.
* Late Finish - whilst most venues are licensed until midnight, The Story realise that some are fine to continue the celebrations until 1am or 2am.
* First Dance - wherever possible, The Story will learn your first dance song providing enough prior notice is given and the song is within the style of the band. If this is not possible The Story would be happy to play your first dance via their PA / DJ equipment.
* DJ service - to help minimise costs The Story are able to provide a free DJ option to ensure that when they aren't performing the party will carry on! This means that requests can be taken from the classic song choices that the guys will have available.
* Additional Sets - The Story are happy to perform for 2 x 60 minutes, 2 x 45 minutes or 3 x 40 minutes.
As standard The Story perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets.
Because The Story 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 DJ mixing software and plenty of 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 looks very tidy.
