Hi, I'm Olivia and I'm an Entertainment Coordinator here at Warble! I love helping people to plan their events and finding the right entertainment for them - we have so many great acts for a whole host of events and there's no greater sense of satisfaction than getting the right one found! Outside of work, I love going to concerts, fishing, meeting friends in the 'boozer, or relaxing with my pet giant snail, Michelle.

Many thanks, we had a brilliant time. What a lovely group of young men, very good musicians and singers. We would definitely book them again and would recommend to all our friends. We were particularly happy that they were local as we like to support our area.
Friends of the Bride were amazing. Not only were they all really nice and friendly, their music was brilliant. Our first dance song sounded amazing. Everyone commented on how great they were. The music got everyone dancing. I could have danced all night. I didn't want it to end. Thank you so much!
The band were out of this world! Even my husband's grandparents got up & danced. Everyone has commented on how great they were. :)
The band was brilliant - everyone said how good they were! Thanks guys, Amazing!!
Thank you so much for being our band. You were so professional, friendly and kept the dance floor alive right till the end! We had so many comments on how great the band were and the mixed repertoire of music was well received. We would recommend Friends Of The Bride to anyone looking for a wedding band as their music was buzzing throughout the evening. Thanks again, Alice and Chris.
Three really nice guys, very professional, great playlist and kept our dance floor full for hours. Could not have asked for a better band to round off our wedding.
Friends of the Bride were brilliant at our wedding, they arrived on time and dealt with all the set up so we didn’t have to worry about anything. They had learned our chosen first dance song and played it really well. Their two live sets were brilliant and got everybody dancing and they provided a great playlist between sets and after the last set. The venue commented on how full the dance floor was compared to other weddings and we and all our guests loved them. We would definitely recommend them!
Amazing Band! Booked for our wedding night and they did not disappoint. The booking process with their management company was spot on and ran smoothly. We had no issues and they were in touch keeping us updated or answering any questions we had. The band themselves were really polite, turned up and set up on time and without bothering us. They just got on with it. The music was excellent and their second set was very impressive getting the dance floor packed. So many of our guests commented on how good they were. From start to finish, we have nothing but good words to say about the company and the band. Very professional. Thanks very much! You added so much to our special day.
Arrived on time and played 2 sets. Got the guests going and really enjoyed the music. Would definitely recommend.
Great band with a fantastic playlist. 3 very nice and polite lads.
The band were brilliant, so friendly and accommodating to my requests. They even performed my favourite song, which wasn't on their set list, which really made the night special for me! Really loved them, would highly recommend.
The band were truly outstanding, everyone commented on just how good they were! They had everyone dancing, the dance floor was full from start to finish! Had a chance to grab a word with them between sets and they were thoroughly nice guys as well! Soooooo happy we booked them!

Amazing night. Second booking and have surpassed our expectations each time! Will definitely book again in the future! Thanks guys!
Great set of lads and their set kept the floor full all night with no cheese tracks (as requested). Thanks again for making the evening run so well.
Lovely lads and an excellent band!
The band were absolutely brilliant! I danced all night long and didn't want the music to end. They played a good mix of songs, including some trickier songs at my request prior to the evening. I would definitely recommend Friends of The Bride.
What an incredible band. Loved them. Loved all of their songs. They played such a great variety and had everyone dancing. They were lovely to work with too, so easy. Thank you so much guys, you were ace. Tess & Ash P.S. - The Guns and Roses track went down a treat! Thank you!

The band was great, got everyone up and dancing.
We could not have been happier with the band they were absolutely brilliant - everyone was very impressed with them. What a brilliant group of lads - cant praise them enough.
Friends of the Bride were very professional and talented musicians. Can't fault them - they turned up bang on time and set up without fuss. We received loads of comments from guests about how great the band were and enjoyed dancing the night away. The DJ service afterwards was also great. Only comment is I wish we'd booked them for extra time! Thanks for making our day special.
FOTB had everyone on the dance floor. It was the best night and the perfect band to get everyone celebrating with us. Everyone raved about them. The band were so lovely and easy going - the first dance they learned for us was magical. My only bit of advice for people considering booking FOTB is to pay for additional band time! I could have danced all night. Huge thank you. Steph and Steve.
The band were polite, professional and they set up with ease. They played our first dance request and followed with 2 great sets consisting of a good range of music to suit all tastes and from different eras. The guests were up dancing and many guests commented on how good the band were. Thank you!
The lead up to the Wedding was excellent, any issues or queries were handled immediately. Booking the act was very smooth, people got in touch as and when we expected and response times were excellent. The band themselves were lovely, genuine gentlemen. The act was amazing, every song they played hit the nail on the head and went down a storm. All guests had nothing but good things to say!
Brilliant set had people up on the dance floor all night with a variety of songs that everyone enjoyed.
Great band, the guys were very amenable, performed well and we had lots of positive comments on how great the music was, would definitely recommend.
The band were excellent, great song choices which got everyone on the dance floor. Many of our guests came up to us and said how fantastic the music was, thank you so much for making our day even more perfect! We would highly recommend Friends of the Bride for any wedding. Jordan and Thomas.
I just wanted to drop a quick message and say how much we enjoyed having the band play at our wedding. It was a lot of fun and the music went down a real treat. We really loved the way the band played our first dance and couldn't recommend them enough for anyone in the future. We've heard nothing but great things about the band from everyone we've spoken to who was there. Lots of people up dancing and singing along. Exactly what we wanted. Easy to deal with, prompt and above all else bloody good.
Absolutely fantastic band! Would recommend to anyone. Still getting friends and family saying how good the band was and how much they all had a good dance because of them. Brilliant! Thanks!
The band were simply amazing!! We have had so many comments from guests at our wedding to tell us just how great the band were! They quickly learnt the music people were into and continued with the genre, constantly keeping the dance floor busy! Could not recommend them enough - thank you so much for making our evening a great one!!
Everyone commented on how they loved the band. We had a great night. It was also really good that the band did our first dance song acoustic.
Top marks for Friends Of The Bride.
Friends of the bride were amazing. A perfect set list, a full dance floor all night and lovely lads! Would very highly recommend.
The band were fantastic and very easy to work with prior to the day and on the day itself! They are a very good band and know how to keep people dancing, and they were able to accommodate special requests for music. Would book them again!
Friends of the Bride were perfect! I knew I wanted a live band for my wedding and chose them based on really good feedback on their website. I was delighted to find they are in fact even better! All of our guests commented on how good they were and the kids loved pretending they were rock stars!
Friends of the Bride were fantastic - their music choices had the dance floor full the whole time! A great range of songs and they were kind, patient, professional and fun! We'd recommend them 100%!
FOTB were amazing!!! Everyone (all ages) enjoyed them. The dance floor was full all night. They are all lovely guys and communicated well with me before the wedding. Would highly recommend.
Awesome band for our wedding! The guys were just what we were looking for and lots of the guests commented how good they were. Highly recommended!
Absolutely amazing! Would highly recommend these guys they kept us on the dance floor all night, played a blinder! Totally professional but so talented, really read the room as well which is a true skill for a band, cannot thank you guys enough.
Friends of the Bride were amazing! A fantastic band who topped off a wonderful wedding. They were great to work with and did plenty of encores to keep the crowd happy!
Absolutely fantastic! We really enjoyed seeing this band perform again at our wedding after booking them because we had seen them at another wedding two years before. We have had so many great comments about the band from all friends and family at the wedding - everyone loved them! We would strongly recommend!
Band were fab, lovely lads and very talented!
The band really made the evening part of the wedding simply amazing! If you think they look good on their YouTube videos then believe me when I say that they are unbelievable live! The song choices were perfect and they ensured the dance floor was never empty! You will not be disappointed if you book these guys!!!! Thank you for making the evening absolutely perfect!
The guys were fantastic! From the first time we spoke to Owen a few weeks before, he was very friendly and professional, and the performance itself was fantastic. The majority of our guests asked us about them and said how good they were.
When planning our wedding one of the first things that went on the must have list was a live band, as lovers of live music and a good boogie it was one of the things we wanted to get right. We found Friends of the Bride after searching, listening and watching quite a number of live music acts and thought they fitted what we wanted. On the day Friends of the Bride did not disappoint, they were fantastic. Their skill level and energy really set the room up for a great evening. Their two hour long sets filled with upbeat sing-a-longs, guitar classics and feel good favourites went down a storm, multiple guest pulled me aside just to tell me how awesome and on point the band were. I would fully recommend these guys to anyone considering a fun, energetic party starting band. Totally worth the money!
What can I say... absolutely amazing! Friends of the Bride kept the dance floor busy all night long playing a great couple of sets for us and provided a DJ set in between. The lads were fabulous and I would certainly recommend booking them to anyone. They did a great live performance for our first dance and my new wife was blown away by them. Thanks guys, you were great.
Fantastic band, brilliant range of music that suited our guests which made for a wonderful evening. An approachable and amenable group of lads to top it all.
Friends of the Bride were absolutely great. We really wanted a party atmosphere at our wedding, and the guys ensured the dancefloor was packed from the beginning of the night until the very end. They played a great mix of tunes that suited all our guests. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
Great band – loads of energy on stage and sounded amazing. Lots of good feedback from guests of our staff Christmas party. Really professional and generally just did a great job! Would highly recommend.
Chris and the lads were brilliant. The quality, their attitude and how flexible they were was all first class. A top band in every way.
We cannot recommend Friends of the Bride highly enough! From the first enquiry, to booking, to the boys arriving on the night, everything was seamless. All of our wedding guest loved them and the dance floor was busy from start to finish. Thanks again guys, you made our special day even better.
The band were absolutely fantastic!! They kept our guests partying from start to finish and everyone commented on how great they were. They totally made our event! Thank you!
I wanted to send a quick email to say a huge thank you to Friends of the Bride for playing at our wedding. They were great to work with - learning our first dance in only a couple of weeks (which was incredible by the way!). They were professional, on time and were lovely to be with on the day - really getting involved with atmosphere. Their style was perfect for us and they kept the dancefloor full at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone - in-fact, I have already and I think they're booking them for their wedding next year! Thank you Friends of the Bride - you were amazing!
The band were absolutely amazing and we had a lovely night partying with them. They exceeded our expectations. They were so lovely and helpful and we would be more than happy to recommend them to other people.
Well what can I say about this band... words cannot describe how incredible they were! Lovely guys who kept the dance floor full ALL NIGHT! The quality of sound was amazing and as for their performances... they blew my mind! Our wedding would not have been the same without this brilliant band and I am so grateful to them for making our night do come ALIVE! A massive, huge, fantastic thank you to Friends of the Bride! You made our night!
Friends of the Bride were excellent, they arrived on time and were setup and ready to play as arranged. They played some amazing covers and got lots of guests up dancing. They were very professional and friendly and I would recommend them 100% - first class!
Friends of the Bride played at our wedding in June... they were fantastic and made our evening reception one to remember. They were relaxed, fun and professional. They played the song we had chosen for our first dance, which was amazing, two sets and then played a DJ set. They were definitely worth the money and would recommend them 100%. Every one of our guests had something positive to say about them. Me and Chris want to say a massive thank you to the guys and warble entertainment for putting us in touch with them!!! Kate and Chris xx
Brilliant, we would use the guys again.
Absolutely stunning band, they made our wedding! Great guys, professional and an amazing sound. Couldn't be happier!
We are so so happy we booked FOTB... they did a fab job with our first dance & a great setlist. Especially good was the DJ option when the band have a break and packing up. All our guests enjoyed the party too! Many thanks :)
The band were absolutely fantastic! Everyone loved them and we've had so many positive comments from our guests, they really blew us away. They were a lovely bunch of guys and good fun, they had us do a bride/groom dance-off, which we didn't expect but was a bit of crack! We would highly recommend them to anyone.
Warble (and especially Niki) were very easy to deal with and unlike some competitors of theirs it was very useful to have so many audio and video clips to browse through. All admin queries were dealt with very quickly. Chris from Friends of the Bride reassured me before the event and was very accommodating in helping choose the setlist. On the day, the band were very professional - arriving as expected and being set up in plenty of time. Chris was very helpful in delaying their start time as the evening was so lovely outside. Once the band started it was clear that everyone was in for a good time. We had a wide range of guest ages and the dance floor was always busy with people having a great time. Lots of people have said how great the band were and we would certainly agree and can offer our warm recommendation to you.
Friends of The Bride were absolutely brilliant! They got the party rocking and their choice of music was perfect for our special wedding celebration. They were three lovely lads! Everybody had a fantastic night and all the guests commented on how amazing the band were! I would definitely recommend them for any special occasion. Thanks lads!... You were the icing on the cake for our evening celebration!
Thank you so much for the easiest booking process; there was no hassle and you guys were super quick to reply to any of my questions. Thank you. The guys themselves: absolutely fantastic!!! They got everyone up dancing and having the best time and even sorted last minute an impromptu performance from me! Everyone had the best time and from first talking to them until after they were brill. Really suited the festival vibe we wanted. Couldn't recommend and thank them enough!!
Hi Lois, Just a quick thank you for recommending Friends of The Bride .Amazing band! Totally exceeded everybody's expectations at our wedding. The guests are still saying how great they were.They went above and beyond in accommodating our requests. We would highly recommend them and Warble Entertainment. Thanks for making the whole process easy!
Warble were great as a booking service and this band were something else! Great bunch of lads who kept the dancefloor full and the party feet moving! The way they played the crowd and kept the party going - we can't thank them enough for making it such a memorable night! I only hope that they enjoyed playing to us as much as we enjoyed them playing! Thanks Friends Of The Bride ;) A recommendation? - "looking for a night time band to fill the dancefloor!? ... Look no further!" Thanks, Mr & Mrs Naylor
Superb! Crowd pleasing from start to finish!
What an incredible band... I have had our guests mention them constantly since the big day, all saying how fab they were! They had everyone dancing from the moment they started to the moment they finished. They also learnt our first dance song which was so memorable and having it sung acoustic and live was everything we dreamed of and more!
Absolutely fantastic band! The music was absolutely first class and all of the guests commented on how good they were. If I ever get married again I would book them in a heartbeat!
Unbelievable! They made our evening reception perfect and everyone was dancing and have been raving about them ever since... really nice guys who know how to work the crowd and get people dancing... tunes for everyone and we would highly recommend them for any wedding or function. Please pass on our thanks to the boys for such an amazing night. Daf and Helen xx
FANTASTIC band - great music and genuine, nice guys. Would definitely book again.
Good song list and able to take on requests, which was brilliant!
We are so grateful Friends of the Bride were available for our wedding! Amazing, professional, punctual and great guys!! Thank you!
The band were professional and were so flexible and understanding when our wedding timings didn't go perfectly to plan. Everyone commented how great they sounded and we thoroughly enjoyed dancing the night away with friends and family. Thank you FOTB. Booking the band was one of the best decisions we made!
Absolutely superb. Guys were really friendly and helpful, didn't inconvenience anything whilst setting up, and hardly noticed them. Songs were fantastic, had everyone up dancing and put songs on between sets which kept the atmosphere going. Played a few extra songs at the end due to the number of people up dancing. Loved them!
Absolutely fantastic they made our night, will definitely recommend, well done guys xx
Fantastic! Friendly and Fun! Kept everybody rocking and dancing all night long, whether it was with live music or the DJ service they provided. Can't fault the guys at all. The perfect band for the perfect wedding. Highly Recommend!!!!!
Absolutely faultless! From the first time of speaking to them to the night, everything was fantastic. Professional, organised and everyone loved them. Friends of the Bride were amazing at our wedding, the dance floor was never empty and we hope they enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed having them there. Highly recommended and thank you so much for learning the first dance too! We would book them again in a heartbeat! Amazing. Thank you again xxx
A superb band - all our guests were asking 'where did you find the band?'. They were brilliant. The set-list was perfect for the mixture of people we had at the wedding and it got folks dancing. They were also really easy to work with - Chris spoke to me a couple of weeks before the wedding and delivered on everything we discussed. They were punctual (to the minute), professional - and altogether lovely. Highly recommended.
The band were great and the set list was fantastic. Thank you.
Absolutely fantastic wedding band! All guests have said how good they were. Thanks a million lads you were top notch. From booking FOTB and them playing it has been a simple and well communicated process and thank you to all at Warble and the lads. *****
Great band. Adjusted easily to late finishing of meal. Very keen to make the evening perfect, which it was. Would highly recommend the band. Music appealed to all and very professional. Thanks for making the evening so special.
The guys were absolutely fantastic from start to finish! Communication from the start with Warble and then the band directly was great, we felt very at ease with the band and they certainly delivered on the night. Every guest wanted them to play for longer as they were keeping the party alive so well! Dance floor was soon filled! Highly recommended - top tunes and very talented boys too. Couldn't have been happier with their performances on the night of our wedding!
The experience we had with both Warble and Friends of the Bride was fantastic. The booking process was quick and easy with clear communication from Samantha. The band were on-site at the wedding in plenty of time to set up and sound check. Chris was great in checking with me what time to start their sets as we were running slightly behind schedule. The music was brilliant and, as with other reviews for the guys, a lot of guests were saying how good the band were. We didn't make too many requests during the DJ sets but the guys were more than happy to play anything that we asked for. Thanks to both Friends of the Bride and Warble for all their efforts. We had an incredible wedding day and the music was a huge part of the success!
Fantastic, great, brilliant, awesome! Really nice lads, everyone danced all night, thanks.
Cheers guys. You helped our festival themed tipi wedding go off with a bang. Great mix of music - everyone that came commented how good you were. The dancefloor was full from the first chord to the last!
An excellent band that played a range of music that not only pleased the youngsters, older wedding guests, but also everyone in between. Everybody during and after the wedding have all commented on how good the band were and that they had everybody up on the dance floor. Friendly and eager to please, they asked us what type of music from there playlist we would like, we left it to them and they picked perfectly. Overall money well spent on an excellent band.
Would have actually scored 10 out of five if it was possible! Both Warble and the band were easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to messages. The event itself was outstanding. Loads of people up dancing and having a good time, great music and people asking where we found them. Would highly recommend! Good group of lads as well.
Friends of the Bride were excellent at our summer BBQ. They were really great guys to work with, and played a fantastic assortment of music - taking any requests we had throughout the night. They also happily stayed and DJ'd a bit longer than originally planned because our staff and clients were having such a good time dancing the night away! We would happily book them again if we ever needed a band, and would recommend them to anyone who asked.
Massive thank you to yourselves and Friends of the Bride for our wedding on12th June at Wentbridge House Hotel. The band were brilliant, everyone loved them, we didn't leave the dance floor most of the night! I would definitely highly recommend them and wouldn't hesitate to book them again. From Rach & Matt
Thanks for a great night of music at our wedding! The band were fab, played lots of songs we liked and got everyone up and dancing! Definitely highly recommend!
One word to describe this band... Epic!!!! Perfect end to a perfect day-thanks lads!
The band were brilliant on the night, our guests had a great time. The band were really friendly and polite and double checked all the arrangements when they arrived, I'd definitely recommend them.
Absolutely fantastic band. They sound brilliant, their enthusiasm rubs off, lifts the room and really made the night. Everyone commented on how good they were. I thoroughly recommend this band for any occasion, especially weddings. Thank you guys, really appreciated.
The band were amazing and a great bunch of guys. Great communication with Chris before our party. The night was tailored exactly how we wanted it. On the day FOTB turned up on time and set up was hassle free. They were flexible with the start time which was very handy. We had requested a first dance song which they played perfectly, will never forget it. After that, the music was awesome from start to finish. I think they played pretty much all of our requests - and there were a lot of them!! Would 100% hire FOTB again and will be recommending them to anyone looking for a band. Cheers guys for making our wedding party so memorable!
Warble were prompt and efficient in responding to all communications. It was a very easy booking process from originally checking availability and obtaining a quote to paying the deposit and final balance. The band were fantastic. I had amended the lyrics of our first dance song as a surprise for my husband. They were so accommodating and said it was no problem to sing the revised lyrics which I gave them a few weeks prior to the wedding. They got all our wedding guests up on the dance floor. We had so many great comments about the band and their performance from our guests. They played all the music we discussed before hand and took requests. They even let one of our guests do karaoke which was extremely good (and patient) of them.
Apologies for the delay in leaving feedback, life has been very busy post wedding. We just want to say how fantastic Friends Of The Bride were for our wedding band. Chris the lead singer was very helpful - Skyping from abroad so we could chat and talk about what we wanted for the evening. FOTB managed to do a special request for our first song - blending from one song into another. They played all the types of music we spoke about and played brilliantly. They also put up with some very drunken dancing antics and were very professional! I have some great pictures of air guitaring guests and guests in some very strange mid-dance actions. We highly recommend the band for anyone who wants a great night of music for their guests to party the night out to. We are really pleased we chose FOTB. Just a shame we can't have another wedding to book them again! Thank you.
The guys were awesome! They had everyone up on the dance floor all night and I've heard nothing but amazing feedback from all the guests. We were a bit nervous booking a band we'd not seen perform live so I'm writing this for anyone else in a similar position and can't recommend these guys enough.
The Friends of the Bride were brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to book them again for any future event. They would be suitable for any party, not just weddings. They got the guests going and kept them going all evening. Lovely lads too. Also they were very professional throughout. Prior to the wedding we skyped to confirm arrangements and our requirements, timings etc. Also on the day all went to plan - Brilliant all round.
Definitely picked the right band!!! Myself (the groom) and the bride ended our day dancing away all night with a full dance floor of guests. Since the wedding everyone has been full of compliments for the band and they are three genuinely nice lads to top off. Thank you very much!!...and if there are any public gigs in future please notify us as we would love to go and see them again!
Really good entertainment. Perfect for our son's wedding. Nothing was too much trouble even learning a song on the night so that the bride and her Dad could do their dance. Nice touch. All the best to you all.
We would not hesitate to recommend Friends of the Bride to anybody looking for a band for their event. We booked them for our wedding as we wanted to fill the dancefloor and we weren't disappointed. From the moment they arrived they were on hand to control the evening and nothing was too much trouble. The live performances linked seamlessly with the DJing that was provided and many guests thought they were listening to original tracks when the band was playing. It was amazing to see so many people dancing and I can say that Friends of the Bride made our evening a huge success. I wouldn't hesitate to book again and would suggest anybody does the same.
Sorry that its taken a little time to get in touch but we've been away this week. What can we say but Wow!? You guys were fantastic and made our evening reception. Our guests are still commenting on how great you were and some have said that they've never seen a dancefloor filled at a wedding like you managed. My new mother-in-law commented that you were so good that she didn't know when the recorded music finished and you began a lot of the time. Your song selection was great and I don't have enough words to say how highly we'd recommend you. Thanks again to you all. Kind Regards, Ian & Victoria
The Band were fantastic! They kept people on the dance floor all night and their DJ sets in between were great (we had Motown to cater for the older guests in the DJ sets and this went down well). They were so professional to deal with, very accommodating and went the extra mile. Communication on the lead up to and on the night was fantastic. Great guys who we would definitely recommend! Thanks so much.
We would like to say that they where absolutely brilliant from start to finish and we would highly recommend them to anyone else. Thanks guys it was a top night.
The boys were fantastic, they arrived, set up quickly and sounded fab. We had so many great comments about them and couldn't have wished for more. They kept guests dancing and enjoying themselves all night. I was worried our wedding size and in particular the venue was too small but they fitted in great. Highly recommended. Thanks a lot. Emma and Rob.
Would definitely recommend these guys for a wedding / party - absolutely fantastic! Really made our wedding so fun, I thought the dance floor would break at one point the dancing was so enthusiastic! Great range of songs and learn't our choice of song perfectly. Really accommodating nice guys and were very good natured when a couple of drunk guests commandeered the microphones!
Great band, great music, great service. Would highly recommend!
Absolutely brilliant - nearly all guests commented on how brill they were and very accommodating ðŸ˜„
Band were great, very professional, very helpful and accommodating and pleasant and best of all had the dance floor busy all night! Julia Richardson, Wedding 8th Nov 14
Brilliant band who played some amazing songs. Thanks very much guys.
The band made the night, everyone was talking about them the next day. They had everyone up dancing all night long. The whole thing from start to finish was seamless. Thank you for making our evening exceed all expectations.
The band were great and played a wide range of songs catering for guests, including learning our first dance song and another request. They were also really patient and relaxed about the inevitable wedding breakfast delays. A top band all round.
Hey Chris and the rest of the band! Wow, we just want to thank you for being awesome on our wedding night. We loved you guys so much, everyone was commenting on how good the band were, you guys got everyone up dancing all night so thank you. If you need is to do a review then we would be more than happy too. Thanks again, Paul and Laura
GUYS! I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding a great one! I have never seen the dance floor so full and everybody was commenting on how amazing you were! It was epic! Random villagers who must have overheard the wedding have even been commenting on 'how fab the band sounded'. All in all, I am SO glad I found you and will wholeheartedly recommend you to any future brides and grooms to be if they want a great party. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Anwen & Myrddin xx
The band were fabulous, played good mixture to appease all guests, dance floor full all night, lots of great feedback from guests, enjoyed every minute of evening. Guys really nice, on time, accommodating and fun. Lots of talent made our evening perfect. Huge thanks. Fab music and voices! Won't be disappointed if you book these guys! Made our party a blast. Thank you so much x
Just to say a big thank you, for such brilliant sets on Saturday at Myrddin and Anwen's wedding. Brilliant. Even made me want to get my wheels moving lol. Great musicians, brilliant song choice, fantastic voice (sure you have some Welsh blood in there lol!) Just the thing to finish off a brilliant day. Diolch
Brilliant band, great choice of songs, everyone commented on how good they were, the dance floor wasn't empty all night.
Amazing wedding band, really were chuffed we booked them. They played everything we asked and people were up dancing from song number 1! The guests at our reception all commented on how good they were. Deffo recommend them, thanks guys. Katy and Ian
Friends of the Bride were a great bunch of lads and really got our party going. All our guests, young and old loved them, and many commented on what a great evening they had. They were always polite and courteous and did a great job. They also looked like they were having a great time. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other people 100%. Thanks guys. Michaela & John Flynn
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding last night! You guys really did rock!
The Band were amazing - good variety of songs and really easy going genuine guys. The booking process was easy and if we had any questions we were contacted back straight away. The band arrived earlier than anticipated and set up quickly. Everyone at the wedding were up on their feet dancing. Made our party that even more special. Thanks Friends of the Bride xx
Just a quick note to thank Friends of the Bride for playing at our wedding, they not only got everyone on the dance floor but kept everyone up until the last song. Much to the delight of some of the guests, they even let them sing and play some of the instruments and have a go at being 'in the band'! They sang our first dance song 'Hey Ho by The Lumineers' and brought the song to life! I can't watch the video of it without crying! Would definitely recommend them for any event. True professionals but really fun at the same time!
The band were superb, phoned up 3 weeks before our wedding to find out what we wanted for our 1st dance, type of music we wanted, any special requests etc. Turned up bang on time, very approachable and then the main event - superb when they were playing. Lots of our friends and family commented on how good they were - contributed a big part to our perfect day. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting a great wedding band.
Had a great time at our wedding on Saturday night at Bolton. Many of our guests have commented on how awesome the band were - spot on. Hope we have the pleasure of seeing you guys again at another wedding in the future.
Just to say a BIG thank you for your contribution in making my daughters wedding perfect! (Kate & Matthew O'Loughlin) Your music was brilliant... evidenced by everyone dancing all night. Your patience in letting guests join you on stage was phenomenal... the photos are outstanding!! Can I wish you all good wishes in the future and thank you again.
Fabulous band the boys are amazing. They absolutely rocked the dance floor, my guests loved them everyone was shouting for more when they were done! Thank you so much for making our night perfect. Just what we were looking for... and boys, the first dance was the highlight of our day... thank you thank you thank you x
Couldn't have been happier with the band, really nice bunch of guys and a great set. Really loved the excellent rendition of 'True Blue' they performed for our first dance.
Absolutely amazing bunch of lads, really professional and sounded quality! Everyone at the wedding commented how great they were! Thanks again lads :-) Jason & Sue x
Absolutely amazing, very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommendable, fantastic night we had and excellent value for money. Made up :) Lee and Lucy
Thanks for everything on our wedding night everyone loved you and commented how fantastic you guys were. You even managed to keep it together while crazy Ian was dancing !!!! Xx
All the guests loved the band and their music!
Absolutely fantastic... Loved and enjoyed by all guests :)
Friends of the Bride - WOW! We can't thank you enough for making our evening reception go with a bang. We were over the moon with your version of our first dance song Last of the Ladies by the Courteeners, you absolutely did it justice. Each song was performed with such energy, I seriously cannot praise you enough. I have no idea how long the second set went on for but it was certainly longer than the hour we were expecting. I would recommend anyone to book Friends of the Bride, you most certainly will not be disappointed. Fantastic, awesome, brilliant, just some of the comments we had from our wedding guests. Thank you so much, Niki Armitt (Cooke)
The band were excellent, just what we wanted and more. Thanks
Great bunch of lads, professional, friendly and really good musicians. With basically no direction other than it's pretty relaxed and keep it upbeat they nailed the sort of music we were looking for and kept the dance floor filled during both the sets. Impromptu dance offs and requests finished off a brilliant day with a great party. We will be recommending you in the future, many thanks.
Just to say thanks from myself and the new wife Sarah. You guys were awesome on Saturday and we really enjoyed it! Never seen a dance floor so full at a wedding!
From the moment we booked it was so easy and straight forward sorting everything out. The band were great at being in contact with us and dealing with all the queries and requests so quickly. The band arrived and set up discreetly with no hassle at all. The first dance was awesome which they played and from then on all the songs were fantastic and the range of music had all our friends and family dancing. The wedding was 2 days ago and we have had so many guests commenting on how great the band was and that they stayed later than expected to hear more and dance more. A big thanks to Matt particularly for being in touch. Would highly recommend to anyone we were so happy we picked you to play as it made the night perfect. Thanks again Dom and Jess Flatley xx
Fantastic! Matt and the band were fantastic from start to finish. Played all requests and entertained all guests. They sounded great and everyone commented on how brilliant they were. Made our night!
They were amazing. Totally got the mood and every song was of the highest quality. As was the first song request. Everybody at the wedding loved them - and frequently let me know! I would recommend them to anybody getting married - or who just needs a band!
Many, many thanks to the band for a brilliant night. The lads were friendly, professional and so entertaining. The music was superb, playlist was perfect. I can highly recommend the band and would certainly book them for any future event. Wedding guests were talking about the band all evening, they made our daughter's day just perfect. Thanks again, Pippa Lewis.
The booking process was simple and straightforward and we couldn't have asked for a better band! Genuinely nice guys who play really good music. We had so many compliments on how good the band was and the dance floor was always packed - which speaks for itself really! Wouldn't hesitate in recommending these guys!
Amazing band, very professional and friendly! Went the extra mile to make our night special, cheers guys! I highly recommend the band at any event, thanks once again!
Massive Thanks to you all for making our wedding so special! Your were brilliant! So nice to see all our guests rocking out all night! Would highly recommend you! Just need to find an excuse to have another party now to get you back over the border! Love Bryn and Becca xx
Friends of the Bride were brilliant at our wedding. We had a really great day and it was made better by such a good band!
Friends of the Bride were a really fantastic choice for our wedding. They created such a good atmosphere, with a brilliant set list. They got all our guests dancing for the entire evening! Thanks so much for such a good show!
A huge thank you to you guys for an amazing set at our wedding last night at Thornton Manor. You were wonderful. You helped make our day even more amazing and my friends and family loved you too. Hopefully see you again soon at some of our other friends weddings! Love the Millingtons! ;) xx
Absolutely brilliant! Loved them, in fact one of my guests has already e-mailed for a quote for their wedding next year!!! Thank you.
A really nice bunch of lads who played two really great sets with music to suit everyone - would recommend 100%. Many many thanks :)
Fantastic band! Amazing energy and a great performance. Our guests didn't want them to leave!
Friends of the Bride were amazing! They helped to created a fantastic atmosphere at our wedding and we can't recommend them enough.
Thank you so much for performing at our wedding on Saturday 8th June, you were absolutely amazing and all of our guests have commented on how much they loved your performance & the atmosphere you provided. We cannot recommend you enough & look forward to booking you again in the future. Thanks again from Mr & Mrs Williams (Willington Hall)
The booking process was incredibly easy with plenty of information to help us chose the right act for the wedding. Communication, both initially with Warble, and then later with the band themselves was good with quick and courteous responses. The band arrived with plenty of time to set up and get ready. At all times they were friendly and courteous. The actual performance was fantastic and exactly what we wanted and though a lot of our guests were older they had the younger ones out on the floor. Thank you to all involved. We would have no hesitation in recommending Warble or Friends of the Bride.
Top quality! Thoroughly recommend. Thanks for ending the day off with some great music. Paul & Vic
Friends of the Bride played on our wedding day and were absolutely fantastic! The booking process was easy and Matt contacted us 2 weeks prior to the wedding to confirm details. It was extremely refreshing how relaxed he was with the plans including the first dance and any requests we made, it was such a nice change from the hectic wedding preparation. The reception itself couldn't have been better. Friends of the Bride set up and were extremely flexible (as the speeches overran), ensuring Chris and I didn't have to worry about timings at all. The band created the perfect atmosphere for the celebration, playing a great range of floor fillers, they were a hit with us and our guests. Thanks so much Friends of the Bride, it was the perfect celebration for the perfect day. Chris and Cat
The lads were brilliant. We had a fantastic evening with great music that got everyone dancing. Professional yet friendly and we loved the dressing up in the photo booth! Thanks for a superb night guys :-)
Warble Entertainment were very efficient and easy to deal with. The booking process was simple and John was very friendly, helpful and polite. The band contacted us prior to the day and went through the running order etc which was really helpful. On the day the band were absolutely fantastic performing 2 brilliant sets and it was one of the highlights of our day. Thanks for making our wedding a day to remember!
Guys, incredible last night - well done to you all, we loved it! When you burst into Whiskey in the Jar, pitch perfect, after umming and arring whether you could play... EPIC!
AMAZING!!!!!!! Is the first and only word that pops in to my mind when I think about FoTB playing at our wedding on Fri 8th Feb 2013. There is no doubt about it, they made the evening reception extra special and I have received nothing but praise from our guests about them. They managed to please all age groups even the mother of the bride who was slightly wary when I told her there would be no ABBA at our doo. She hardly left the dance floor along with the majority of our other 100 guests, our only problem was that the dance floor was simply not big enough. I would recommend these guys to anyone who is looking for an awesome night of entertainment with professional & friendly service! Many Many Thanks Matt, Chris & Adam we will be booking you again for any future parties (once I've recovered from this one) x x Just a quick note to Tracey at Warble, thank you for all your help with the booking. Friends of the Bride were absolutely awesome and neither I or any of our guests were disappointed they really were simply brilliant and have given me some great memories of the night which is pretty high praise.
Absolutely second to none and loved the dressing up! Brilliant music and lovely people. Thank you guys for a fantastic night - would totally recommend.
Thought you guys were brilliant at my sister's wedding last night. Just wanted to say thank you!
Well what can I say!! Friends of the bride where absolutely amazing!! I couldn't of asked for anything more! They made the night extra special and all my guests were very impressed! It was like having our own private gig! Professional and friendly I would definately book them again! Thanks to everyone at Warble and especially the band!
Hi Tracey, I wanted to leave some feedback for the guys. Myself and all of the guests thought FoTB were great. Booking a band for an event like a wedding, especially when you have no personal recommendations, made me a little nervous given the potential for things to go wrong. However, I thought: your website was excellent giving a selection of bands, with play lists and the video snippets really helped, the booking process and your response to queries was quick and easy, the guys were very professional, turned up on time, responded well to requests from the guests, even spending some time in their van rehearsing an Erasure track they were asked to perform (don't worry I'm not an Erasure fan, it was meant as a joke). Everyone enjoyed the music and playing the motown tracks during the DJ interlude gave the oldies something to get up and dance to. We had a great day and FoTB contributed massively to this! Thankyou
Just AMAZING!!! The 2 sets were brilliant and the dance floor was never empty. They even let my cousin hijack the stage! The great thing about this band, apart from their obvious talent, is the fact they DJ between sets too so you don't have to hire anyone else or have a weird lull between sets. The easiest part of our wedding to organise, with the best outcome. Thanks so much. I'd also really like to thank you and Warble. You made what, in theory should be quite a hard part of the wedding to organise, really easy. It's a great service and I will definitely recommended you to friends/family. Thanks again for all your help, Janine.
Thanks very much for playing at my 50th at the Irish Centre Leeds on Friday night. I've had loads of friends asking where I found you! Hope to see you again xx
Friends of the Bride were brilliant! A lovely bunch of guys that are very laid back and easy to deal with, but also professional and courteous. The booking process was easy & Warble were very responsive to my queries. The band were absolutely brilliant at our wedding, giving a really energetic and enthusiastic performance - loads of people commented on how good they were and we were delighted. The acoustic set during the drinks reception was lovely too. Thanks so much guys!!
What a great band!!! They really did make our night :-) thank you.
Friends of the Bride were fantastic! We had a fabulous time, the guys played everything from our playlist and more. We would defintely recommend them :-)
We just wanted to say thanks again to Friends of the Bride who played at our wedding in October. They were absolutely fantastic and all the guests had a great time; people didn't want the night to end. They're a really talented bunch and very friendly guys. We would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone else.
Thanks again guys for rocking our wedding reception... my feet have only just recovered from the dancing!!! You were Brill!
Thank you guys so much for rocking up my birthday party! You were super friendly and seemed to adapt the set list to get EVERYONE up dancing which was awesome! We will definitely be recommending you to our friends in the future!
The band were amazing, many of our friends and family also commented that they were great. The band definitely helped to make our evening very special. Thank you!
You played at our wedding at Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire on Saturday 22nd September and we just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU. We had such an amazing time and every one of our guests keeps telling us how fab the band were. We were so pleased to see the dance floor full for the whole evening, and the fact that most of our guests didn't want the music to stop and could happily have danced all night tells the whole story! We would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone else looking for a fantastic evening reception - we really had so much fun and if we could do it all again, we would. Please feel free to use any of our comments on your website or if you want to ask for any particular feedback, please let us know. Many thanks again.
Amazing band! Every single person I've spoken to has commented on these guys! The dance floor was rocking all night and I didn't stop dancing!Â I now want another party to invite them again!
We thought that Friends of the Bride were very attentive, professional and flexible to our requirements. All the guests enjoyed them and we felt that they were fantastic.
We had a great night, thanks in no small part to FOTB! Very professional, sorted themselves out with no problems, and put on a great show that had people dancing until the end and shouting for more! Took requests as well, and even played an encore! Really friendly bunch of guys, and couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks! Jen and Matt
Fabulous service! Fabulous band! Everyone loved them! They made our evening and kept people on the dance floor right until the end of the night! I would highly recommend this band!!
The band were fantastic!!! Matt in the lead up to the wedding was great! Always available to chat and run through everything!! Everyone one of our guests commented on how good these guys were!! They had everyone up and dancing the atmosphere was great all night! The only thing is I wish we'd finished our wedding earlier, so we could have had these guys playing longer!! I cannot recommend FOTB enough they were outstanding!!!
We hired Friends of the Bride for our wedding and they certainly lived up to our expectations. They had everyone on the dance floor all night long. In between gigs they provided a disco, there was a song my Father wanted but they didn't have it so they downloaded it straight away for him, which I thought was really good of them.
Friends of the Bride played at our wedding on Sunday 12th August 2012. We can’t praise them enough for their performance! They played mainly modern rock indie with songs from Nirvana to Lady Gaga, which had everyone on the dance floor from the first note to the last. All the guests have said how absolutely brilliant they were and how much fun they had. Huge thank you to Friends of the Bride for making our wedding a night to remember!!
Just wanted to say how great Friends of the Bride were at our wedding! The dance floor was full all night and we received so many great comments about the band. Matt and the guys got the party into full swing and even took requests from our friends - thanks for playing Metallica guys! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Friends of the Bride - I'm hoping some of our friends book you in the future so we can do it all again! :-) x
If you are sitting deliberating as to whether booking FOTB for your wedding/event is a good idea or not then let me tell you whole heartedly, 100% and without a shadow of a doubt it is! Just book now! FOTB are not only a brilliant live band, they are also a set of the nicest lads you're likely to meet. They played for us at our wedding on 20th July 2012 and I lost count of the number of friends, family and guests that commented on how good they were and asked me where I'd found them! Throughout our contact with them from setting up the song list, to introducing themselves on the day right up to packing up at the end they handled themselves professionally and so politely. The members of the band greeted both me and my wife, introduced us for our first dance and then took to their instruments and delivered a fantastic performance. They got the party going with song after song of well known tunes both new and old, even my Dad got up and then we couldn't get him to sit back down as he did his version of the Mick Jagger strut and his very own 'pizza dance' - don't ask... FOTB ended the night on a quieter song and even called out over the microphone to make sure it was ok to play it, making sure the audience wanted a quiet one as the final song. FOTB accommodated our every wish and exceeded our expectations by far. I'd certainly recommend them to anyone and wish them every success in the future :)
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! From our first e-mail with Matt discussing our preferences, to our first meeting the guys, they were friendly and polite. They took account of what we had asked for and catered for our needs. They came on with 'I Predict a Riot' straight after our first dance... took everyones breath away.... The dance floor was filled from beginning to end!! We have had such positive responses from our friends and family and all say the same thing, best wedding for years, and mainly thanks to the band entertaining everyone all night!! Thank you guys so much, we would recommend you to everyone!
You guys rock!!! Everyone said how fantastic you were!! Thanks so much for adding the icing to our cake... We just need to think of another celebration so we can book u all again!! Will recommend u to all! Xx
Just wanted to pop by to say thank you so much for blowing the roof off our wedding last night! You guys were awesome and if it wasn't for the venue turning the lights off on us, I'm sure the 3 encores would have continued! You really made our evening a night to remember and our friends definitely enjoyed it! Thanks again! xx
Hi guys! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You were awesome and had the dancefloor filled right up until the third encore! We've already had people saying how good you were and how much they enjoyed the night. Thanks again!
Thank you so much! The feedback we had from guests was great... the tracks sounded really fab and although it was only a tiny venue you adapted well and it was brilliant... especially the live performance at the end when everyone was shouting for just one more! Will recommend to many, thanks again, Ian & Emma
A massive thank you to Friends of the Bride. We had so many comments about how incredible the band were and the dance floor was packed all night. We just need an excuse for another party so we could have them play again!
Excellent performance by the Band. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their two sets. Good variety of songs in their repertoire. Would highly recommend this group for future wedding functions.
The band were brilliant. All the guests commented on how good they were and the dance floor was filled from start to finish. They did a fabulous job with their agreed song list.
Thanks for a fantastic performance at our wedding. The whole service from booking to actual night was efficient and straight forward. I would 100% book you again and recommend you. I was really impressed with the time you gave to perform our first dance and the choice of songs were brilliant and the whole performance as a band just smashed out passion. Awesome, made the night for me.
A huge thank you to Friends of the Bride! The music was a brilliant selection of songs along with our requests. The dance floor was full at 1:30 in the morning - brilliant! Would highly recommend - fantastic. Thanks guys!
Absolutely fantastic! I love them! Everybody has commented on how good they were. Definitely recommend them to anybody.
Hi Tracey, I was delighted with the bands professionalism and their excellent performance on the night. All my guests commented on how great the band was. I had quick feedback on any queries both for Dan from the band who was very pleasant and cooperative, and from Warble Entertainment. Thank you again for adding to making our day really special and memorable.
Hi Matt, My apologies for not replying sooner but we only got back from honeymoon early this morning. I'm over the moon to be able to give feedback about "Friends of the Bride" as they are a fabulous set of guys and really helped make our wedding reception! I'd be very grateful if you could pass my personal thanks onto them. I also promised I'd pass along any photos I come across of them and will do so as and when I get these back from photographer. Please feel free to use any of my comments for testimonials etc. I can't tell you what a fantastic evening we had! The band totally threw themselves into their set and seemed to enjoy themselves as much as we did. The dance floor was bouncing all evening and (although I'm probably biased!) it was without doubt the best wedding reception I've been to!! I honestly don't think there was a single moment when the dance floor wasn't full and the atmosphere was fantastic. We've had a deluge of comments from family and friends and they seemed to appeal right across the spectrum. They finished to huge cheers and chants of "we want more" to which they very kindly obliged. I'm not sure how long their second set was but I have a feeling it was quite a bit longer than 60 minutes!! I wish them all the best of luck for their future and will definitely be recommending them to anyone looking for a band.
Hi Matt, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Please see the comments below. If you can't tell, we were really happy with both the service and the band - both were great! Many thanks to you all. Warble were always very quick to respond to our queries and very helpful during the booking process, clearly answering all our questions. The band was brilliant at meeting all our difficult demands - keeping themselves a surprise, right till the last moment and doing the normal 10 min sound check in a 30 second grand entrance! The band was awesome! The dance floor was packed all night - youngens and oldies, all creating some seriously crazy shapes. So many people commented on how great the band was and what fantastic musicians they were (and they had a tough audience!). The band were also really friendly and so flexible on the night. Please thank them all so much for providing such a fun and perfect ending to a perfect day!
Hi, My wife and I attended a family wedding in Mellor on the 12th August 2011 where Friends of the Bride were playing at the Reception. The band were absolutely excellent, playing a wide range of songs which ensured that the dance floor was packed all evening long. The range of songs that were played included all of the songlist on your website and was a pleasant change from the usual party music. I would have no hesitation in recommending Friends of the Bride. Best of luck for the future.
Hi Matt, Sorry for the late response - first day back at work! We were seriously impressed with Friends of the Bride - they really spent time and effort learning songs for us and also mixing up their set list to suit our guests. Without question they got everyone up and dancing - old and young and we would like to thank them again for making the evening of our wedding so memorable. Warble were quick to respond to queries as was Dan from the band. I would have no hesitation in recommending Friends of the Bride in the future and if we ever have another event we'll seriously consider re-booking them. Many thanks and best wishes.
We had the best Wedding Reception we could have hoped for, in the main due to FOTB! Fantastic set, professionally played. They were exceptionally accommodating with our first dance and kids music initially and their sets were crowd pleasers! I found their experience reassured my nerves getting people up to dance and they were a joy to work with. We have already been asked for their details from other potential Bride and Grooms at our Wedding Reception and were more than happy to pass on their details. We will definitely be keeping them in mind for any future family events and the sound on the website didn't do them justice they sounded amazing.
Hiya Matt, We were very pleased with Friends of the Bride, they were just what we were looking for. I didn't stop dancing all night and we had excellent comments from our friends. Thank you for helping to make our wedding perfect. Would certainly recommend both the band and Warble Entertainment to friends and family in the future. Thanks again.
Dear Tracey, yes, I would like to give feedback on Friends of the Bride and must say how brilliant they were. The boys were great young men and everybody thoroughly enjoyed their music and they made the party a huge success. I have spoken to them directly to thank them and wish them great success in the future. I would certainly recommend them to others.
Amazing!! What else can we say!! From the moment we looked at the band online we were impressed! The end performance did not fail to deliver either. We couldnt get anyone off the dance floor at the end of the night, all our family and friends were shouting for more and the guys gladly obliged. Instead of the usual cheesy wedding band music this band made our wedding feel like a proper gig. We loved it!! Thank you for such a great night!!
Hi Matt, Sorry for the delay responding, we've only just found our feet after the wedding and honeymoon. Thanks very much for your email but most of all thanks for your top class service and top class band you supplied. The whole day couldn't have gone better and topped off perfectly with an exceptional performance by Friends of the Bride. Right from my first contact with yourself the response was immediate. Any further queries I had were answered and dealt with immediately putting my mind at rest before the big day. The booking process was totally hassle free and confirmed almost as quickly as it went through. Then for the band - what a great bunch of lads! They did everything I could have wished for and the standard of their performance was better than some proper concerts I've been to. Not only did they perform their agreed sets but they also stayed and performed a few extra tracks (to the delight of the wedding guests). Nearly everyone commented afterwards on how good they were so I would firmly recommend them and Warble Entertainment again. Thanks again Matt for all your help. If you could also pass on my thanks to the lads I'd really appreciate it.
Hi Marie, these guys really did the business, they made my party special they had to play on the lawn in damp conditions and boy did they rock they never missed a beat all night and just got on with making my party a night to remember, everyone thought you were great, well done and thanks again.
Hi Tracey, the band where friendly and fabulous. Would highly recommend them.
Friends of the Bride understand that every Wedding is different and they are happy to build a package just for you. Here’s some common questions when creating a bespoke package:
- Can we have the band setup earlier? - Yes! Great if you want to avoid disturbing the ambience if everything is taking place in the same room.
- Can we have a later finish? - Yes! whilst most venues are licensed until midnight, Friends of the Bride realise that many are fine to continue the celebrations until 1am or 2am.
- Will the band learn our first dance? - Yes, wherever possible! The band 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 band will be happy to play your first dance via their PA / DJ equipment
- Will a DJ Service be provided? - Yes! The band runs a FREE DJ SERVICE between sets using DJ software to keep the party atmosphere going!
Please Note: As standard, and at no extra fee, Friends of the Bride will provide party music before, in between and after their performances.
As standard Friends of the Bride perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets.
Because Friends Of The Bride want you to have the whole nights entertainment sorted when you hire them, the band offers a FREE DJ option that runs when the band are not performing.
The FREE DJ option is performed by a member of the band using DJ mixing software with party classics on hand to keep your wedding or event jumping! Where possible they will take any special requests on the evening and with the DJ option being provided via the band's equipment, the space utilised at the venue is kept to a minimum... And so looks very tidy.
Please Note: The fees indicated below are approximate and based on a central location for each county. They are intended to provide a rough guide only and exact quotes can only be given once the date and exact location of your event have been provided.
