So pleased we booked the band for our special party, they were excellent in every respect. A great bunch of guys (and gal) who looked and sounded fabulous. Hats off to the sound engineer who got a perfect balance for the small hall. EVERYONE at the party loved them. Can only recommend wholeheartedly. Many thanks for a memorable evening.

Our wedding was amazing and The Classics played a huge part in it. They were professional, accommodated all of our needs (no problems with timing, number of sets) and the most important thing - they are great musicians / singers. Everyone had a such a good time and the dance floor was full of people. The owner of the venue, told us that they thought we were playing Elvis tracks - not realising it was the band singing! We had such a great feedback from everyone. Last but not least - they also had a sound engineer who made sure that volume, bass, etc... was at the correct level - this is very important and often missed in the case of other bands. We cannot recommend the Classics highly enough. Great guys, great band, you don't need anything more!

This band really made the wedding reception. Fantastic and professional. Everyone was dancing from 4 to late-80s. Even accommodated a special request for our 4 year old niece to do an impromptu performance just after the first dance. A great bunch of guys and I would thoroughly recommend them.

Hi John, I would just like to say that the band that played at our wedding were excellent. Every one commented on how good they were and they finished off what had a great day in the best possible way. The first dance song was perfect.

We have told the act directly but I wanted to leave some feedback directly with Warble. We were so incredibly thrilled with The Classics. They were very prompt and organised in setting up, and incredibly accommodating the the requirements of our event. Everyone is still remarking on what high quality they were, fabulously talented musicians, great crowd pleasers and they looked amazing. Plus, they are really lovely people. They would be a great asset to any event, they totally made our party! Thank you so much.
