George and the band helped make our day so special and got everyone dancing.

The Dandies are a lively acoustic band coming out of the West Midlands. Singing an eclectic mix of musical favourites, from Ed Sheeran to Sugarhill Gang, from The Beatles to Johnny Cash.

The Dandies have the versatility to play simple, chilled background music, a lively upbeat set for receptions, all the way up to a full 4-piece wedding band for hire to fill dance floors and get people moving. They also offer a very cost-effective DJ add-on option where required.

The Dandies bring their own high-quality PA system, which they set up quickly and neatly without hassle. They also have party lights to go along with the party band/DJ option upon request at no extra cost.

Although based in the Midlands they travel nationwide. You can't go wrong with The Dandies!

The boys were amazing! Despite the 34-degree heat, they played our reception brilliantly. They created the perfect atmosphere whilst our wedding guests chatted and enjoyed some bubbles. They looked the part and were absolutely lovely to chat to - I only wish we could have chatted longer. Their music selection was perfect - everything we were looking for!! Highly recommend!!

I can’t praise the Dandies highly enough; the guys were fantastic and really made our evening very special. Great choice and range of music. Everything was well organised and they were so friendly. I would definitely book them again. Thank you!

The Dandies were fantastic!! They played after the ceremony while we had the drinks reception before the wedding breakfast and they were amazing! They played outside on the terrace while everyone had a drink, the music was upbeat and was perfect for in-between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. All our guests commented on how brilliant they were. Thank you Dandies!

We absolutely loved having The Dandies play at our wedding. They really made our day even more special. I would highly recommend them for any special event.

We'd hired the Dandies recently for a large Henry Schein Sales Event. They were absolutely incredible! If I could rate them higher I would. The guys were excellent and were very clearly the highlight of the evening. They knew when to play for background vibes and when to steal the show - they had gone from being background music whilst dinner was being served to absolutely packing out the dance floor by the end of the night! On an organisational level, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. Completely stress free. I genuinely appreciated that - this meant the organisation team could take a step back and enjoy the evening. I'm certain we'll be in touch again soon - don't think the next event would be the same without them!

Utterly brilliant! They were up for a laugh and really made the evening what it was. I have never seen anyone sprint for the dance floor as quickly as everyone did for their second set, they were so amazing. Professional throughout, contacted us through the build up to answer any questions and work through music choices. Their playing was brilliant and so fun. Choose them and you will never ever regret it!

The band were absolutely brilliant! There was a nice mix of songs that had people up on the dance floor! When the guests were starting to sit down they had us all doing a conga to get everyone back on their feet. Our little boy was dancing all night and they personalised a song with his name in which was a great touch! All our guests commented on how good they were! It was really brilliant and would definitely recommend them!

What can i say about these guys... they are amazing. They arrived when they said they would, and they set up and performed amazingly well. When most of our guests were outside, they stopped playing and performed outside which was just amazing, it just felt amazing. They were both really friendly, and really approachable. All my guests complimented us on how good the music was. These guys where perfect for my event, and I will be highly recommending them to anyone. Thank you so much The Dandies!!! 100% perfect!!!! I cannot fault them whatsoever!

These guys were amazing. They blended in really well with the feel of the wedding and were so chilled and happy to take pictures with the guests that wanted to get involved. The music they sang was brilliant and everyone commented on how great they were. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so incredible.

My wife and I would like to thank The Dandies enormously for playing at our wedding in Kent. They were brilliant. They were amazing performers and their enthusiasm spread through the venue and had everyone dancing for their entire set. Prior to the wedding, they were more than accommodating in regards to their set list for the big day. I was in constant contact with them and they were always more than happy to help. My wife and I are now trying to come up with another doo just so we can have them play again. Many thanks to the Dandies. Nice one lads.

Fabulous band, so friendly, relaxed, talented and professional. They got everyone up and dancing, great set list. Loved every moment!

The Dandies were amazing at our wedding! We paid extra to include a drummer for the evening and they really blew everyone away. Both before and during the event George was really helpful and communicative so we knew we were in good hands! George and the band helped make our day so special and got everyone dancing all night, I wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Shauni Harrison

The Dandies were so flexible with what we wanted for our wedding day and stayed in constant communication for about 6 months leading up to it. They played for us for the full day, walking down the aisle, reception drinks, 2 sets in the evening and even a DJ set up to midnight. They were amazing! Everyone loved them, great range of songs and really good at what they do. Had everyone up on the dance floor. Our first dance pick was not their style but they learnt it and sent us clips of it to see if we liked it and it was perfect! We would highly recommend them!

Oliver Craddock

Event: Wedding

The Dandies were amazing! They got everyone up and dancing the moment they came on, and kept the energy high all night. They were super friendly and understanding when we were running late following our meal. They sounded great online when we booked them but it just does not do them justice - when playing live they absolutely nailed it. Thank you!!

We were so pleased to book The Dandies for our NYE event. The guys were extremely professional, very accommodating in last minute requests and most importantly great performers. Although we had a very diverse crowd they managed to entertain all our guests. The only difficult part would be to find someone better if I have to! Thank you guys for an amazing evening.
