Absolutely fabulous band, they made our wedding celebrations complete.

We couldn't have asked for a better band, and could not recommend The Motions enough if you're looking for someone to play on your wedding day - or frankly, any day. An eclectic range of songs, amazing vocals and super-tight music, the guys added so much to our wedding, and we had, and continue to have, so many comments from people on how much they loved them. On top of that, they're just four really lovely guys. Many thanks again for everything!

Wow!! This band are amazing. Total professionals in every way and really entertaining with a fantastic repertoire of songs from all decades. They were excellent in playing our first dance song and really responsive to any questions by email. We had two guests at our wedding who also play in wedding bands and both made a point to say just how fantastic this band sounded. Well worth the booking!

The Motions were absolutely amazing. From the minute they sang their first note, right up until the last song, the dance floor was filled. The guests at the wedding couldn't get enough. We are still getting compliments the day after from our guests about how good the band were, and we can only take credit for booking. I can't recommend them enough. The energy they brought to the wedding was insanely good and I would book them in a heart beat again.

The Motions arrived on time and started setting up quietly during our speeches. They put their kit together smoothly and spent very little time sound checking - they know their stuff. Once the show started... WOW! Tight, perfect sound but also a lot of funk and spirit. The dance floor was full at every song and it was just a blast. We loved every second and everybody commented on how good the band was - even our photographer could not help himself from joining in. We've already passed on their details to several guests. Thank you so much for making our day exceptional. Book them without hesitation!

So glad we booked The Motions for our wedding. The whole process from booking to the performance was excellent and communication with Dan the singer was a pleasure. They really are talented musicians with a great selection of songs - they certainly filled the dance floor! We had lots of positive comments from guests. Huge thanks guys for adding a special touch to our wedding day.

Blown away! We’re well into our music and have been watching live bands for years. The Motions are a different class and play songs you just don’t expect to hear live (Whitney Houston, ABBA). I love all things 80’s so was hooked from the video but they really do have something for everyone. Get this band booked!

The Motions were simply fantastic! They had everyone up and dancing from the start and I lost count of the amount of comments we had from guests. They played a perfect mix of current and past hits and the DJ set was a perfect addition. A joy to work with, can’t recommend them enough. Thanks lads!

    Can you 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

    Can you provide a Free DJ Service?
    Yes! The band runs this between sets using DJ software to keep the party atmosphere going!
