, Wedding, The Pattiswick Compasses, Essex
5/5

We booked the band for our wedding at The Pattiswick Compasses and we were not disappointed. Prior to the day the band contacted us to discuss first dance and some requests from their repertoire. The band were excellent on the day, great musicianship and energy. The venue had a piano in one of the rooms which we heard from some of the guests that the boys were playing during their break. The set list was spot on and dance floor was full as our guests danced and sang along.

5/5

Brightside were absolutely fantastic. They were professional yet very friendly and made all of our guests feel comfortable during the evening. It was such an incredible and special moment when they played an acoustic version of our first dance song, which they had learnt for the evening. They got so many people up on the dancefloor (even some who hardly ever dance!) and really helped make our evening do so memorable. We would highly recommend them to all.

We are so thrilled that we picked Brightside to be our wedding band. They were absolutely stunning; so incredibly professional yet fun. The music was superb and our guests were asking us all evening for their contact details! The atmosphere was epic and every song they performed was a work of art. A big thanks to them also for learning and performing our first dance song! It was amazing! Highly recommend!


, Wedding, Dorset
5/5

Brightside are a fantastic band! We loved all the music they played. Thought the lead singer had a great voice. They played a couple of requested songs for us which was great, including rage against the machine which they did perfectly! We've had so many of our guests compliment them since the wedding. They had loads of energy and were also really nice people. We wouldn't hesitate booking them again!!! A massive thank you to the band for making our evening reception super special.

Brightside were excellent. Our expectations were exceeded and the songs they learned for us were amazing. We had lots of good comments from wedding guests. Very professional and smart. Great sets that kept the dance floor full at all times. Would recommend these guys to anybody. Great work boys!

5/5

I could not recommend Brightside highly enough! The guys were patient and helpful before the big day, always available via phone or email if we had any questions, and most certainly did not disappoint during the evening of the wedding. They were absolutely fantastic live and we couldn't thank them enough on the night! They were also kind enough to play two particular song requests that were important to my family - We asked them to rock out and they did just that! A huge heart felt thank you to Brightside - You made our day.

What a fabulous band! They played an amazing variation and had everyone up dancing! I think the guests were still calling for more the next day! Thank you fellas - you did an awesome job. We received so many complimentary comments about you, good luck in the future and we wouldn't hesitate to have you guys back again for another celebration.

Brightside were a fantastic band. They turned up in plenty of time, were very polite and courteous. All of our guests commented on how good they were. Look out for this band! I would highly recommend them.


, Wedding, Berkshire
5/5

A well natured group of lads who played a balanced mix of music for all ages. We have been to several weddings recently with varying quality of bands. This affects the overall enjoyment of the evening, and they didn't disappoint. They managed to maintain our guests on the dance floor, rocking out to classic rock anthems, and memorable tunes from the 80s 90s & 00s. They also called us a few weeks before the wedding to construct the playlist, and offered to learn any songs we wanted to play. Overall we have seen poor quality wedding bands, but these guys are top draw... book them up!

Brightside were fantastic. They put on a great show and sounded awesome. All the pre-event communication and planning was excellent. The guys were professional, friendly and very flexible around our event needs. Thank you so much - you made our evening very special.


, Wedding, Nottinghamshire
5/5

In the run-up to the event, the band were friendly, responsive and helpful and on the day they were brilliant. Their versions of some of our favourite (and obscure) songs were superb. They kept the party going and were all thoroughly excellent. Highly recommended.


, Private Party, London
5/5

The band were well organised well rehearsed and thoroughly entertaining. Their show had a lot of energy and helped to create a great atmosphere mainly due to the choice of music they play, which covers a wide range of style and era entertaining all members of the audience. I have booked these guys three times now and they never fall short, I would highly recommend them.

Brightside were absolutely brilliant. All our guests loved the great set list and many asked for their details. Brightside had the guests literally jumping. Very professional.

Guys were fantastic - I had a party for my birthday and all the guests were super impressed with the music. Guys sounded brilliant. Leading up the day - Keir was brilliant finalising the arrangements and ensured all the way things would run smoothly. Guys turned up ahead of time to ensure that they were ready for the start. Really friendly guys and very professional. No regrets whatsoever booking this act and no reservations at all at recommending them. Very, very pleased and as said so was everyone who came. Brilliant day/evening - cheers Joanne

We are very pleased with their performance, they made our event very successful. They are talented, hard working and were very customer focused. We would hire them again, but feel that by the time we need them again they may have moved up into music industry and may therefore not be available for what is likely to be too small an event!


, Wedding, Oxfordshire
5/5

Brightside was the perfect band for our wedding!! Keir and the band were accommodating from the outset with songs we did and didn't want, especially when we said we wanted more of a gig feel to our wedding music than romantic ballads! On the day they arrived early and setup in good time, and when we heard them soundcheck we knew they were going to be great – we certainly weren't disappointed. These guys sound fantastic, they're friendly, polite and good fun too. They got in with the relaxed mood of our party and we've even got a great photo of the guys in our fancy dress props too! Everyone loved them and said what a fantastic band we'd found. We are so pleased we found them! Just waiting for an excuse to book them again. 10 out of 10 for us!

I hired Brightside to help celebrate my 60th Birthday with friends and requested they play a handful of songs by some of my favourite artists. I am pleased to say they went above and beyond my expectations learning covers and performing medleys of songs from bands such as The Rolling Stones, Queen and Big Country. The whole night went really well and I would happily book these boys again for future parties or events.

5/5

I booked these guys to play our New Years Eve event for our hotel guests and any general public and was more than happy with the quality they delivered. Not only did they play two great sets but also counted us into the new year with style and helped DJ into the early hours keeping our clients thoroughly entertained, couldn’t recommend them enough. We'll definitely have them back next year.
