We hired The Monitors for our wedding in East Sussex in August. They were absolutely great and made our wedding extra special. Their choice of songs was pitched perfectly to get everyone dancing regardless of age and the dance floor was packed all night. They were completely professional in all respects from handling drunken requests for songs from guests and even when we ended up running horrifically late the band were completely understanding and did everything they could to make things work out. I can recommend The Monitors without hesitation.

We are sooooooo sooooooooooo pleased we made the right choice to have the Monitors play at our wedding on the 25/08/12. So much so our guests cannot stop talking about them. They kept the venue rocking!! Thank you for all your hard work and for making our wedding day complete and special. Cheers Caroline & Michael x
