The Skies were a really great band. They communicated well on the run up to the event and arrived and set up on time. Their performance was fantastic and they really helped make a wonderful party. I would recommend them wholeheartedly if you are looking for an energetic, talented band with a great sound.

The Skies were amazing for our wedding! The acoustic set was a really nice addition to the afternoon. Then in the evening the dance floor was packed from start to finish. Amazing, thank you!

, Wedding, Heathy Lea, Derbyshire

The Skies were absolutely brilliant - they made our day even better than we imagined. Scott was fantastic in the build up, and even linked our playlist into their sets seamlessly. No issues with any requests and they were so accommodating on the day itself, they were all so friendly and easy to get on with. The dance floor was packed for both sets. Even my 88 year old Granny and Grandad were having a boogie! The set list was awesome - all belters which everyone knew. EVERYONE has said how great the band were. Do not hesitate for a second to book these guys - you won’t regret it.

The Skies were very professional and punctual. They learned our wedding dance song and it was fantastic. We had many compliments following the day about how good they were and how their song list was great. Myself and Adam loved them! They made the evening everything we had hoped for.

, Wedding, Owen House Wedding Barn, Cheshire, Cheshire

The Skies were fantastic everyone commented on how good they were even now a few weeks after the wedding. Played a really good mix of music to ensure that everyone was up and dancing and they went above and beyond letting my cousin with Down's syndrome play maracas with them during the set and even have a go at playing drums - you made his night. You won't regret booking these guys. Thanks for a fab night. Mr and Mrs Martin. x

, Wedding, Merseyside

The Skies were an absolute delight at our wedding! Sang a range of different songs and kept everyone on the dance floor. They even learnt our wedding song especially for our first dance. Thank you! We would highly recommend them for any wedding! Xxx

, Wedding, Derbyshire

Amazing band from the first point of contact to the last (extra) song they played. We can't rate them highly enough. They were polite, professional, helpful and they certainly knew how to fill a dance floor. Nothing was too much for them and they really made our day. Thanks again boys you were fab!

We are so happy that we picked The Skies to play at our wedding. The members were all super friendly and professional and all our guests said how great they were. The dance floor was full all evening and all loved the selection of songs played. We would definitely recommend them :) Thank you so much.

, Wedding, Cumbria

The Skies played at our wedding and were incredible. Prior to the wedding they were prompt at answering our questions and more then happy to learn our 1st dance song. They arrived on time, set up quickly and quietly at the end of the meal. The 1st dance song was amazing!! The band played a mixture of songs that kept the dance floor packed all night from young to old. We have had so many compliments and enquiries about The Skies from guests. We cant thank you all enough. We would 100% recommend The Skies and if anyone is undecided on which band to choose - this is the one for you! Thank you again, Charlotte and Tom

, Wedding, Lancashire

The Skies were fantastic - they arrived in good time to set up and were really accommodating in helping us use their kit for both the speeches and for an Uncle to play the first dance. Their set went down a storm with all the guests - people are still asking where we found them and they kept the dance floor full all night. I will be recommending them to anyone who asks.

, Wedding, Cumbria

The Skies were absolutely amazing! We booked them for our wedding and wanted them to do an acoustic set whilst guests arrived at the venue and then two evening sets. We have to say how delighted we were when we went to see our guests after photos and saw them really enjoying the band! They are so talented, slick and cool. They look the part but most importantly rocked our day! We can not tell you how many guests have commented on just how fab the guys were, both during the day, the evening and two weeks on we are still hearing fab comments! The Skies are so professional and had even gone to the effort to learn songs that we had suggested for the acoustic set. Our first dance was magical as they played 'Ho Hey' acoustically. Please look no further than these guys. We are now looking for a reason to hold another party just so we can have them back! Thanks so much gents! Tasha & Adam

, Wedding, Cumbria

What we wanted more than anything was for the dance floor to be full at our wedding. We chatted to the guys prior to the day and discussed that we wanted it to be 'lively'...... We had nothing to worry about because this band have so much energy, a great take on some classic songs and an ability to engage with the crowd. The quality of the music and the singing was really high and needless to say everyone was on their feet for the whole of the night! The band had to endure a chanting demand for '5 more songs' upon the completion of their set, to which they obliged. Our friends all raved about the quality of the band and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to have a really energetic band who will fill the dance floor. Cheers guys!

, Private Party, Lancashire

What a fantastic group. Absolutely brilliant! They were punctual, had a great range of songs but most importantly they got everyone up on the dance floor. All our guests are still talking about them and we wouldn't hesitate to book them again. For any party book them and you will definitely NOT be disappointed.

, Birthday Party, Lancashire

, Wedding, Merseyside

, Wedding, Yorkshire

I booked The Skies for my client's wedding in July and they went down an absolute storm. Not only were the band accommodating of some unusual requests, they were on time, they were professional and they played fantastic music! The dance floor was filled all evening and they were certainly crowd pleasers even letting a young guest play with them for a song! I wouldn't hesitate to book them for any of my other events and look forward to working with them again in the future!
