The Foundways were brilliant from the acoustic set during canapes right down to the final song, the members were so attentive and had everyone up on their feet dancing well into the night. Even after the wedding, guests are still mentioning how much fun they had on the dance floor and the quality of the music was excellent. Honestly, we couldn't have wished for a better band to make our day that extra bit special!

We hired The Foundways for our wedding and we're so happy with our choice! We had several phone calls in the lead up to help with planning and the manager was speedy with email responses. The band learnt our first dance song and were accommodating with their set list when I requested some songs not to be played. We had so many compliments on the day on both the band and their set list. Maeve has the most incredible voice! Would 100% recommend them, thank you so much guys for a fabulous time!

We booked The Foundways for our wedding night entertainment and we couldn't have been more thrilled with our experience. We paid to have a band as we wanted those spontaneous moments and interactivity with our guest, and we got all that and more. It made for such a fabulous and fun evening! I don't think we've ever seen so many people dance at a wedding! From groom and bride dance offs and getting people up singing too, it was wonderful! Great selection of songs too and a very cool version of the first dance choice.

5 Star Band!! The Foundways were absolutely fantastic!! They created the most beautiful soundtrack to make our wedding day totally perfect. They played the most gorgeous acoustic set in the sunshine upon our arrival back to the venue. Everyone commented at how beautiful it was being able to enjoy their drinks and listen to their set. As for the evening set, they were absolutely on fire! They learnt our first dance to the wedding and when I watch the dance back over it always brings me a little tear and such joy as they really made it flawless. The dance floor was never empty and they created the most electric atmosphere all night! We didn't want them to stop!! They even managed to get me (the bride) and another guest up with them singing!! Everyone after the wedding complimented on how amazing they were. I Would highly highly recommend them to anyone! Thank you so so much.

We booked The Foundways for our 40th birthday party. We were certainly not disappointed. They were really professional, arrived on time and are lovely friendly people! The music was great, and they got everyone up and dancing. They created a great atmosphere, and we even got to perform ourselves, which the crowd loved! Will definitely book them in future for another party.

I chose The Foundways for 3 sets at my Birthday Party, and they played just the style of laid-back acoustic music I had been hoping for, followed by a lively finish, and left us shouting for an encore! Just the right volume as well, so that my guests could still talk and listen. Would thoroughly recommend.

Thank you so much for providing live music sets, both acoustic duo in the day and band by night. The music was fantastic, and the band incredibly flexible and versatile, getting moved to a small corner of the outdoor bar to shelter from the rain! You provided great atmosphere and plenty of tunes to keep the party going all night! You even humoured my friends getting up and having a sing along with you!! Catering for all ages, everyone said how brilliant you were, keeping everyone on the dance floor the whole night!

We absolutely loved The Foundways!! All of our guests thought they were amazing and were enticed to the dance floor by their choice of covers. As the newly married couple, we were extremely pleased to find out that we could request covers of our favourite songs for the band to learn!! Would definitely recommend to anyone else looking to book the band for a special occasion and rate them 5/5!!
