The Flames were absolutely fantastic and we couldn’t have wished for a better band at our wedding. The website doesn’t do them enough justice, they were better than we could have imagined.

Fantastic live band that did not fail to deliver... Helpful and professional throughout, genuine down to earth bunch that made our New Year's Eve wedding perfect... I was even asked to do the countdown to the new year, by that time I was a tad merry and could have sang a number but that would have ruined the night... Book this band and you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Martyn and the flames, Jamie and Sarah Goslyn x

Thank you guys for great entertainment on our special night!! Martyn was very friendly and helpful in initial contact with the band. On the night they were quick and efficient to set up. Each and every band member was friendly and approachable which made for a very pleasant experience. Then of course to the music - they were great on the stage and had people dancing the majority of the night. All in all a great recipe for a fun, action packed night of dancing and busting moves.

The Flames were excellent. We had them at our wedding and have had some great feedback from our guests. Making arrangements for their arrival on the day was very easy as they were accommodating to our requests as access to our wedding was slightly awkward. They were very professional and were able to change the running order slightly for us last minute as our dinner ran over a bit. The music was great and if anything I would say the videos don't do them justice, even better in real life! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to a friend.

Fantastic Band. Engaged really well with the audience and kept everyone dancing. Love the different styles of music they play and the lead vocals from both are amazing. Beth sounds like a mix between Stevie Nicks and Debbie Harry..... Spot on vocals on every song. I would highly recommend this band to perform at any occasion. Thank You
