Just wanted to say a massive thanks to The Poets as they were absolutely brilliant at our wedding in September. The booking process with both The Poets and Christian was very easy, which gave us confidence after our previous band let us down. They arrived early on the day (after a 200+ mile journey) and were very patient to wait around for the relevant area to be cleared after we overran on the food service. They set up in good time to start straight after our first dance and had the dancefloor packed for the whole duration of both of their sets. I remember looking around near the end of the final set and was so pleased to see everyone having such a fantastic time. We decided to let the band choose the setlist on the night and they played an absolute blinder keeping everyone happy with a good mixture of songs as well as some great interaction with the guests (Although giving the mic to my best man for the verse of ‘You really got me’ was possibly a bad move)! 🙂 Finally, as well as being great musicians, they were very professional and also a really friendly bunch of lads who took the time to chat to quite a few of the guests between and after their set. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a brilliant wedding/party band. I’ve had so many people comment on how good they were and know at least 2 of the guests are enquiring about booking them for a future event. As you can tell – we were all pretty impressed! 🙂 Thanks again for topping off a great day and hopefully see you all again in the future. Vern & Philippa Peacock, Wedding, Cornwall
The band were absolutely brilliant and really got into the spirit of the day. Their set, particularly the second half was spot on and they dealt with issues with the venue (noise levels) well and remained professional. So many positive comments from our guests! Kevin Penter, Private Party Event, Gloucestershire
The band were fantastic, very relaxed and happy to accommodate time changes. Performance wise they were amazing, really made the evening. Lots of great comments from our guests. I just wish they performed for longer! Chris Landen, Wedding Event, Somerset
Band were great. Came and set up nice and early with no fuss, were friendly and flexible with timings etc. The two 45min sets were both very good, great sound and good mix of music. Many guests commented on how good and how much fun the band were. Overall very professional. Throughout the process the correspondence and response times from the band themselves were first class. Thanks to everyone involved. Jon & Debbie Greenhill, Private Party Event, Surrey
