Kellie Salmon, Wedding Event, Durham
They were fab! Everyone commented on how good they were.
Kirsty Price, Wedding Event, North Yorkshire
Excellent experience having The Story play at our wedding, and so glad we booked them. The band were very friendly, professional and had our little venue bouncing (literally) all night! Lots of our guests commented on how good they were, even those who weren't too familiar with some of the songs on the live setlist (mainly indie covers). They played a great acoustic version of 'Mr Brightside' for our first dance and also another live request ('Everlong') which we loved. The DJ sessions in between live sets were also great! I wouldn't hesitate recommending the Story or Warble to anyone.
Laura Betts, Wedding Event, Norfolk
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to The Story for the amazing job they did for our wedding. They really were fantastic. I have had great comments about them from a large number of the guests. I was slightly worried about booking a band without having heard them first but as soon as they started playing my worries disappeared completely. The band played a great range of music which had everyone on the dance floor. They really listened to our preferences and gave us the perfect mix of music. In addition, they went above and beyond by staying much longer than they were hired for, playing into the early hours of the morning. They were polite, laid back and had a great sense of humour. Thank you so much guys - we would recommend you to anyone! You deserve every success. Thank you also to Warble - the system is easy to use and we were kept fully informed as to what we needed to do when. We were particularly reassured by the prompt responses and the helpful information supplied when booking, which anticipated our questions before we had to ask them. Great service.
Andy & Ali Beale, Wedding Event, Cheshire
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. We had a fabulous day which was topped off by some great music. Many of our guests still talk about how good the band was!! Thanks again.
Emma Lee & James Wallen, Wedding Event, Lancashire
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to The Story! They MADE our reception and left us wanting MORE! Guests have commented repeatedly how much they enjoyed the band - they all loved the performance, as we did! The energy, the songs and the talent were all amazing! Well done boys! Love from Emma & James Wallen xx
Sophie Young, Wedding Event, Leicestershire
The Story did a great job on our special day - the dance floor was full from the first song. They played exactly the music we like and the older guests commented that they loved the twist the band did on some of the older songs. We were really happy with The Story and would recommend them and Warble in the future.
Jodie Saunders, Wedding Event, Northamptonshire
The Story - Fantastic! Efficient and very professional throughout. Loved the song choices and the dance floor was never empty. Even convinced some friends marrying next year that a band is needed at a wedding as they really set the atmosphere. They guys them selves were brilliant, friendly and really easy going. Thank you so much for making our evening wonderful!
Carley Fox, Wedding Event, Shropshire
Really good!
Nicola Sutcliffe, Wedding Event, Staffordshire
Really loved the music played by the band. All the songs had people dancing the whole night! Really talented band.
Tom Hudson, Wedding Event, Cumbria
The band performance was very good, very good musicians and easy to get on with. They did everything we requested and all our guests enjoyed themselves.
Elizabeth Preston, Wedding Event, Lancashire
The band were excellent! Very upbeat and great fun - well done guys!
Natalie Burch, Wedding Event, Cambridgeshire
The Story were perfect! Super relaxed and good fun, everyone had a great time. Thanks!
Stephen Green, Wedding Event, Cheshire
Yes the Story were fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate at booking them again!! Fab sound and they played all our favourite songs. Nice lads also. Thank you.
Adele and Conor Costello, Wedding Event, Manchester
The Story are a fantastic band who we would recommend to anyone. We were initially a little nervous having booked them through the website but our nerves were completely unfounded. They did an amazing cover of the song for our first dance and the dance floor was jam packed all night. Lots of our guests commented on how good they thought they were. They were totally professional and rounded off a perfect day.
Trevor Tunstall, Wedding Event, Merseyside
Fantastic. Great sound, good selection of tracks. We let them choose the material and it was spot on. They certainly did their bit towards what was a brilliant day.
Sophie Lord, Wedding Event, South Yorkshire
The Story were absolutely fantastic. Their set list was brilliant - they ran it by us first so that we could make a couple of tweaks. They were really accommodating when we asked to have our first dance outside at the last minute. The dancefloor was always full, and we have had so many comments since complimenting the band. They also DJ-ed for us, which made it so much easier, and they played brilliant songs. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as a wedding band... and have already passed their details on to people planning their weddings. Thank you so much! Sophie & Joe Lyon
Brian Swift, Wedding Event, North Yorkshire
Absolutely fantastic, band members were very accommodating and really made the effort! Would hire these guys again for other events. All guests were asking about them and saying how good they were!!!
Vicki Cosgrove, Wedding Event, Cumbria
Absolutely amazing band. Had all our guests up dancing all night, everyone raved about how good the band were & wanted more & more! Played a mix of songs which pleased our wide age ranging guests & nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much & would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fab band that will have all your guests dancing all night!
Emilie Janman, Wedding Event, Cheshire
The Story were absolutely brilliant! They had people up and dancing all evening and I had so many compliments from guests who thought they were great. The booking process was simple and the band got in touch a few weeks before to finalise details. I would thoroughly recommend The Story to anyone! Thank you so much!
Sherena Kaye, Wedding Event, West Yorkshire
The Story were absolutely FANTASTIC at our wedding!!!!! I was a bit nervous about booking a band at first with not seeing them perform before, I was worried because we had a big age range. After reading previous feedback I'm sooooo glad we did!!!! The Story were simply AMAZING and I'm so glad that we went ahead and booked them. Everyone was up all night dancing right up to the end, all our guests commented on how fantastic they were and wanted to know how they could book them for future events. Don't think twice about booking them. The band contacted us before the wedding and discussed everything we wanted, they turned up on time on the day and set up quickly and efficiently and got straight on with the entertainment. They were ever so professional!!!! Absolutely fantastic band!!!! If you want people up all night dancing then you MUST book them!! One of the best decisions we made! Thank you so much, Mr and Mrs Saparamadu
Gail Makinson, Wedding Event, Lancashire
What a fab band The Story are, absolutely brilliant. Everyone at the wedding said so. All lovely lads. Loved all the songs, they played everything off my playlist in between sets. Super impressed, will recommend them to everyone I know!
Debbie Lawrence, Wedding Event, Manchester
Awesome! The only word I can use to describe the band. A great group of lads who kept the dancefloor packed all night. All the guests raved about them and the boys took it in good humor when some of our more 'lively' guests harassed them and dressed them up in photobooth props (sorry about that lads!) towards the end of the evening. The booking process was slick and we were contacted the week before the wedding to confirm our requirements. They were really accommodating and welcoming towards our 8 year old son who wanted to play a Killers track with them. I can't recommend The Story highly enough.
Barbara Clancy, Wedding Event, Cheshire
The Story were excellent and did not disappoint. We had no problems whatsoever with the booking process or set up on the day. The band members were really friendly and accommodating as we changed our minds about the music and timing so many times. The music was fantastic and really got everyone going in the party spirit. Every one commented on how good the band were - we would definitely highly recommend to friends and family and anybody else for a fantastic wedding reception.
Lindsay Buckley, Wedding Event, North Yorkshire
The Story were an amazing band and all our guests complimented them throughout the wedding and for days afterwards. They had everyone up on the dance floor and we couldn't have asked for a better band for our reception. Thank you very much. Lindsay
Mike Bourke, Wedding Event, Lancashire
The Story were excellent they really made our wedding complete. A great range of songs and everybody commented on how good the guys were. I recommend them to anyone. Cheers guys.
Ali Crowe, University Event Event, Manchester
This band went down really well. They arrived in good time and kindly provided some background music for us prior to playing to compliment our dinner. A good mix of songs were played and the guys were very friendly and approachable. Would definitely recommend them.
Kathryn Lightwood, Wedding Event, Shropshire
There was no question as to the rating for The Story as they were incredible. They were everything we could have wanted and much much more. So many people have commented on how good the band was, and a number of people have asked for details to be able to book The Story for events that they have coming up in the new year. The band contacted us prior to our wedding and put us at ease, were friendly and professional. The band were great at getting everyone involved, played varied music, and we're very flexible with the number of requests made towards the end of the evening for certain songs. We so hope that we get the opportunity to be able to book them again in the future.
Steven Cockburn, Wedding Event, Cheshire
The Story were absolutely brilliant. They really made our wedding a special day and I cannot speak highly enough about the three of them. Would recommend the band to anyone!
Simon Ward, Wedding Event, Worcestershire
Brilliant band and brilliant group of lads! The guys helped make our wedding the special day we wanted! We have had so many comments about how good they were! Played all the types of songs our family and friends like and even let some have a sing and me pretend to be part of the band!
Angela Woods, Wedding Event, Cheshire
Wow wow wow. Thank you so much to The Story for making our special day go off with a bang, every single guest commented on how fantastic the band were. The guys had everyone up dancing to some brilliant music which sounded amazing and the three guys are so nice and polite, always checking with us if everything was OK. So thank you thank you thank you for making our day so memorable, we will defo keep you in mind for any future parties xx
Adam Garford, Wedding Event, Norfolk
We had The Story at our wedding reception and they were truly amazing. Their repertoire was superb. All of of our guests loved them and many asked us how we found them.The Story provided us with great entertainment and and our reception would not have been such a hit if they had not have been part of it. The guys were friendly and enthusiastic. We would highly recommend this act to any bride or groom. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank Warble Entertainments for having such a great act on their books but also for their help and efficiency in booking The Story. Kind Regards, Adam and Emma Garford
Katherine Selby, Wedding Event, Cheshire
The Story, we're great. A really good group of lads, they helped to make our wedding evening extra special. The song choice was great and the way they played some, it was as if the original band was playing them. The DJ set was good and they took care of all entertainment for the night, playing 3 sets of 40 mins which went down a treat with most of the guests but we knew they would do in advance! Would definitely recommend anyone to use The Story, they put on a fantastic show, I couldn't comment enough on how good they were.
Rob Dartnall, Wedding Event, Cumbria
The band were amazing! We only had a small wedding but they still managed to get everyone on the dance floor, having a good time. Everyone has commented on how good they were. I can't really big them up any more than that - a fantastic wedding band who done an amazing job for a group of people who love live music. Cheers!!
Rob Cheney, Wedding Event, Cheshire
The Story were absolutely first class. Reliable in communication beforehand, professional in their approach during the day and evening. Their music was fantastic, everyone loved it and they had people dancing until the very end. One of our bridesmaids is trying to convince them to go to Croatia for her own wedding as she thought they were so good! They even came back to our hotel afterwards for a drink and sing along with a load of our guests and seemed to be having a great time. Brilliant band.
Rupert Lowery, Wedding Event, Cheshire
First class act from 3 super polite and professional guys. The quality of music is first class. Some of the YouTube vids just don't do them justice. They played to a v small wedding of 30 guests and just kept us dancing. Would defo book The Story again - thanks guys!!
Karla Vermeer, Wedding Event, Staffordshire
The boys were truly incredible!! The dance floor was pumping all night, the band mingled with all the guests and were really good lads! Nathan from the band contacted us early and asked what songs we wanted and performed a Kooks song as requested as that was our first concert as a couple! We just want to say a massive thank you to the Lads and to Warble, it's nerve wracking booking a band you have never seen but they were magic and we need not have worried! Thanks again!!
Tony & Jill Browne, Private Party Event, Derbyshire
The Story were just great. The boys were good at getting in touch through Nathan and responding to our ancient play list. On the day they were here well in time to set up and were just lovely. Everyone enjoyed them and we would recommend them to anyone.
David Todd, Wedding Event, Cheshire
Very pleased, as was everybody at the wedding. Many comments saying how good they were. The dance floor was always full so no more comments required really! Music was first class, great voice, great musicians, the lads were so friendly and willing to do anything to help. Including letting two of my friends sing a song. Very pleased with them and would and have recommended them. First class.
Tracy and Ross Gibson, Wedding Event, South Yorkshire
Hi Tracey, we just wanted to say a massive thank you to you at Warble for providing us with The Story to perform at our wedding reception on Saturday 13th July. You guys were a pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much trouble. The boys were amazing! The dance floor was jumping all night into the early hours and we couldn't have asked for more. We have had so many comments from our guests (young and old) about how good they were and what a wide variety of songs they included in their sets. They were very professional and got in touch in advance of the big day to confirm everything with us, we are so happy we booked them. Thank you once again and we wouldn't hesitate to book The Story in the future. Tracy and Ross Gibson.
Victoria Barr, Private Party Event, Manchester
We were really pleased with the Story they were very professional and provided a really good performance - I would definitely recommend them and would also look to book again in the future.
Paula Dever, Wedding Event, Merseyside
The Story were an absolutely fantastic band, everyone enjoyed the evening. Lads arrived early and were really lovely. Will be using them again and I'm sure our our friends and family will. Thanks a lot.
Vicki Fry, Birthday Party Event, Lincolnshire
Amazing band everyone commented on how great they were. Very accommodating as our meal and speeches ran over by an hour. Would love to see them again to be able to enjoy them more and dance all night unfortunately we spent more of the night greeting our guests. Thank you so much guys you were fantastic.
Lorraine Sinclair-Lawrence, Charity Event, Cheshire
The Story were fantastic! Every age group catered for as well as every age group on the dance floor! Guests commented on how brilliant they were and that they were going to enquire about booking them for future events. Thanks, guys for making it such a special event!
Louise Wallace, Wedding Event, Cheshire
They were absolutely brilliant! Everyone loved them and I've never been to a wedding where the dance floor is bouncing all night!!! Thank you! Best band ever!
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. As far as the service received by yourselves then all we can say is thank you and you made booking a band very easy and advice given to us definitely came in useful. So thank you for your assistance. The band were amazing! 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, Denbigh
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, 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, Pembroke
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, 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, 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.

Thom Scott Erbes, Wedding, Kneresborough
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.
