David Perrett, Monmouth

So professional and great to deal with. Made our day complete.

Jaime Harper, Cornwall


Starting as a 5-piece but available as a 6-piece, The Runaway Babies are a bunch of fresh, polished musicians that will have you on your feet all night - keeping you up to date with the charts whilst taking you back to a time when dancing was what it's all about.

The band is made unique by not just the music they play, but the members that build up this team. All members are hot out of university after studying Popular Music, giving them the best musical advantage to offer top quality performances and superb sound. Between the band there are members that have been hired as 'Professional Cast' for the 2012 London Olympic closing ceremonies to perform alongside artists such as Rihanna, Coldplay, Jay-Z and many more. Members of the band have also toured Europe and America with the likes of Bastille and Rag'n'Bone Man, appearing on shows such as Jools Holland and The Late Late Show in New York.

Other members have also been on tour around Malaysia and France to showcase their talents, and the band perform with their vocalist who also doubles up as a well respected presenter on the Official Disney Channel.

What an amazing band! They made our wedding absolutely incredible. Really professional, good communication and lovely guys. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Sophy Dransfield & Andy Wilkinson

Event: Wedding
Location: Wrexham

The band arrived in plenty of time to set up, they sound checked. Then they waited, they waited as weddings don’t always run to plan. And people waste time, get caught up with the other parts of the day... so how did the band deal with this?? They were great, they were polite, friendly... nothing was too much trouble at all for them. They were so patient and friendly. Then we got it started with the first dance, and from that moment they just went from strength to strength. They played so many good songs that get people up and dancing. They sounded amazing. We couldn’t have chosen a better band for our big day and would highly recommend them to everyone! We’ve had so many comments from all the guests saying how amazing they were! Thanks guys.

Thank you to Andy and the band for a fantastic performance on our wedding day. They really got the guests up on their feet from the first song and they had the dance floor full through to the end of the night. The band and vocals were on point and we had so many lovely compliments from our guests on what a fabulous time they had in the evening of our wedding, and that was very much down to the Runaway Babies. Thank you so much! Alison & Chris x

This band is amazing! All of our guests have said that they are the best band they have heard at a wedding. So professional and great to deal with. Made our day complete. Worth every penny.

Absolutely amazing! The dance floor was full from start to finish, all the guests loved them, would highly recommend!

Lisa Coleman

Location: Suffolk

Fantastic band! Really good fun. They kept the dancefloor full and played a really good mix of songs. At one point all the men were dancing to 'I feel like a woman', which was silly fun. Would use them again and recommend them highly.

The band were incredible. I'm so pleased I booked them, they really made our night that extra bit special! They were excellent to deal with in the lead up, they played our first dance and then joined us on the dance floor at the end. Great work from them all, from a business point of view they were spot on. They sounded great and we've had a large amount of positive feedback for them. Thanks again to the Runaway Babies for a top night. I wouldn't hesitate in booking them again for another event.

The Runaway Babies were fantastic! Aidan, a member of the band, contacted me 3 weeks before the wedding to make the final arrangements for the day, which was really reassuring. On the day itself, they were very flexible with regard to timing, and when the time came for them to play, they were fantastic! The dance floor was packed from beginning to end. It was such good fun; I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for anyone's special event. Thank you all.

I don't know where to start..... The Runaway Babies were superb! From the moment Aidan contacted me I knew I could trust them 100%! Upon arrival at our event they were respectful of the fact it was a wedding, they set up without a fuss as were the politest group of people I think I have ever met! That coupled with the fact that they played some awesome music rounded off the perfect day for us! I would more than highly recommended them and reassure anyone who is unsure whether to book them that they should do it, it'll be the best decision they ever make!

Louise Elliott

I couldn't recommend this band more highly. We booked them through Warble Ents after listening to their demo videos and recordings online. They contacted us 3 weeks prior to the event as agreed and sent us their suggested set list which was exactly what we wanted, they also agreed to set up before we were seated in the marquee so as not to disturb us. They let us use their mic for the speeches and were on hand to help with the sound, they also played sets on time as agreed and worked seamlessly with our DJ. From our first dance (which they learnt) though to the end of the night, all our guests were up and dancing. Our reception was in a marquee on our farm and the band were so accommodating of the facilities we had, super polite and professional throughout. We couldn't have been happier or recommend the more highly. Also fantastic value for such a great sounding 7 piece band. We wish them lots of luck in the future. Louise & Tom. 12/9/15

The Runaway Babies were excellent, we wouldn't hesitate to book them again or recommend them to others. They were all friendly and entered into the celebrations with us. Their music was great and lots of people commented on how good they were.

Oli Owen

Location: Shropshire

We weren't sure what the band would be like as we hadn't seen them perform before, however they were absolutely amazing and ensured all our guests were on the dance floor - even the ones that hate dancing! We will be booking them again next year for our charity event, and would highly recommend them to anyone that's looking for a fun and energetic band.

What a great group of performers, energetic and interacted so well with all our guests. Very professional and easy to work with at all times. They were the perfect band for my daughter's 21st party. I would definitely book them again.
