The Picassos were simply great. Great choice of songs ranging across the decades which meant there was something for everyone to sing along and dance to. Really professional group and kept the flow going at all times. Hannah was really vibrant and her singing was 1st class, a really seamless performance from the group! I would have no hesitation in booking these guys again, thank you so much for contributing and playing a big part in a great night!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to The Picassos for the music and entertainment you provided for us and our guests last night. It was a fantastic evening and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves - it really finished off so perfectly what had already been such a wonderful day, and we couldn't have asked for more. We really cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding day so special! With love and best wishes, Laura and Benjamin xx

The Picassos played this weekend for our daughters 21st. What a fantastic band - great sound and 2 very lively sessions that had everyone on the dance floor and buzzing for more. Hannah's vocals were strong and she even outsang the choral attack from the dancefloor! We couldn't have hoped for a better party band - Encore!!!!

Hi Hannah, I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday - you were absolutely brilliant and so many of our guests came up to us throughout the evening to ask us where we found you, and to say how amazing you were. Your selection of songs was spot on, and it was good to see so many people up on the dance floor, which was all down to you! I'm hoping there will be some photos with you playing in the background, and if there are I will email them over to you :) Thanks again for being so great, and we will happily recommend you to any of our friends and family who require a band for any future events (we know lots of people getting married in the next couple of years!!) Take care, and keep up the good work :) Love Adella & Dan

Hi Tracey, here is my feedback about The Picassos. I don't usually write testimonials but I was so impressed by The Picassos, who played at our wedding last month, I felt that I should share our wonderful experience. We were a bit nervous about booking a band for our wedding that we'd never seen live before, but I can assure you that The Picassos are amazing and the booking process via Warble was very straightforward! Despite all the great reviews, The Picassos completely exceeded our expectations and we were blown away on the night. Not only do they sound incredible (Hannah has the most amazing, adaptable voice), look fantastic, have a brilliant repertoire covering everything from the Rolling Stones to Lady Gaga, they also have an indescribable energy about them which is totally infectious. Hannah was so helpful on the phone beforehand which completely filled us with confidence as she was extremely professional yet very friendly and flexible too. We danced all night long as the great tunes just kept coming and coming and I can't believe the floor was filled all night. All our guests have said how amazing they were and people are still talking about them 6 weeks later. They absolutely made our night and it was a pleasure to have them be part of our wedding!! I would have no hesitation in recommending The Picassos. Thank you so much Hannah and the band!

Hi Hannah, Just a quick note to say thank you so much to you and the band for such an amazing performance at our wedding (3rd Sep). Everyone thought you were absolutely fantastic and we danced all night long. We're on our honeymoon at the moment but I promise to write you a full testimonial as soon as we're back so everyone knows how brilliant and talented you guys are. I wondered if it would be possible to send me your band's set list for the night? Also, thanks so much for the CD's. We're looking forward to listening to them when we get back. Take care and I'll email you again soon.
