I always knew that I wanted The Ska Kings to play at our wedding (embarrassingly, even before the engagement)! I have always thought that they are one of the very few ska/reggae bands in the country who feel truly authentic. Even from the videos I saw online, I could tell that their energy is infectious - a great sign of real passion. Even with such high expectations, they did not disappoint! From the very first contact, they were friendly, professional and accommodating. On the day of the wedding, we were unsurprisingly running behind schedule, and it really comforted us with how they were super laid back, helpful and flexible. The icing on the cake is that they were all such lovely people. In fact, I think my partner and I even spent a considerable portion of our evening chatting and laughing with them! With everything going on, our only regret is that we couldn't give our full attention to all their performances. Hopefully we will have another special occasion on which we can book them again! Thank you, we couldn't be happier :-)

The Ska Kings were absolutely spectacular. They really brought the party and we felt as though they were genuinely enthusiastic. What's more, they were super flexible and accommodating with the usual delay in schedule that comes with weddings. Wish I could do it all over again!
