I can’t even remember how many times people came up and said – this band are amazing – where did you get them from!! I’ve had many texts since that have all been exceptionally positive about both the band and DJ sets, including ‘best night out I’ve had in years, feel like a teenager’, ‘never danced so much in my life’ and ‘hope my dad dancing wasn’t too embarrassing’.
Tom and I had a brilliant time and we feel we made the right decision on ‘over-spending’ to have a band there, it made the evening do a real hit.
Thanks again, Vikki and Tom
So, so sorry that this is ridiculously late! I had planned to send emails when we were on holiday but I lost my phone and Ian jumped in the pool with his… so we had no phones! (oopsy…what a pair!)
We just wanted to say the BIGGEST THANK YOU to you and the band! WOW what a band you are! We really could not have wished for anything better, you guys were everything we wanted in a band… the songs were all great, the musicians were all so very talented and you created the BEST party ever – which is exactly what we hoped for. I don’t think we ever would have stopped dancing if that was an option – all I wanted to do was be on the dance floor all night, which I think was pretty much achieved!
On the night and still now we have had SO many comments about how FAB you guys were… I can’t tell you how happy we are that Jonny posted your link on Facebook! woo!
Thank you for making our wedding extra fabulous, we had such a fun day and FALLEN EMPIRE had a HUGE part to play in that!
Hope to see you at a wedding/venue some time soon!! I’m sure you will see photos on Facey once we get them, and I’m positive there will be some fab ones of you and the band!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Nat and Ian xxx
I wanted to thank you for your performance at our wedding and felt compelled to write a review for you. Thanks again!
I booked the band for my wedding in August. They played three sets, each one better than the last, kept the dance floor full and I have had numerous comments on how good they were.
We provided them with a list of songs that we wanted to hear, and left it up to them which songs to perform via the band or played via the DJ, but they also read the dance floor really well and played songs they knew would go down well at the right times.
From a service point of view they were fantastic, always contactable and able to answer any questions I had (or allay my fears of them not showing up!). As they were travelling from Dublin and the wedding was in the Midlands, I had nightmares that there would be a traffic jam. I didn’t need to worry though as they were up early to set up. We booked them after seeing at another wedding and didn’t disappoint – you should book them for your wedding!
I cannot recommend this band enough! Thanks again, Dan and Kitty
Just want to say a massive thank you for being so amazingly brilliant on Friday! We loved how relaxed everything was in setting up etc and pretty much every guest has said how you were the best band they’ve ever seen. Feel bad that I didn’t speak to many of my guests as I was too busy dancing-haha!
Anyway, Chris and I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate it and really hope you’ll be at a wedding we go too so we can get to watch the full set!
Take care, Leanne and Chris
Just wanted to drop a line and say thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You really set the mood for us, albeit one that did turn in to quite a wild night!
All of our guests have commented on how fantastic you were and that they’ve never spent so much time solidly on the dance floor. You even managed to keep my husband’s 98 year old grandmother at the evening party for longer than planned as she wanted to “just hear one more song”, I think she finally left for bed after the 4th!
I’ve never seen a band that got so involved with the audience before, which just added to the cosy, fun feel we were hoping to create for the day. When we get the photos/video back I will forward on any that you are in.
Many thanks again, Laura Martindale
Thank you so much for making our wedding a truly spectacular party! The dance floor was full all night long, which is just what we had wanted! We have you and your talented band to thank! We’ve also had loads of positive comments on your performance and we would certainly recommend you to any of our friends.
The evening party was really the icing on the cake and the fact that you kept everyone entertained and dancing all night is testament to how good a job you guys did. We were all really impressed also with your professionalism. The quality of the music and the show was excellent.
Overall, you did an absolutely fantastic job and we are very grateful for everything.
Hope all is well with you and hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Navin and Nina
Wow where do we start! From our first dance at 8:30pm through to 1am you guys were absolutely awesome. The atmosphere was non-stop during the sets and in between while you were DJing. The dance floor was full all night and people didn’t want to stop. Absolutely loads of people have asked me who you were and have commented that you are the best band they have heard at a wedding! You made the party for us and didn’t disappoint in any way.
Your voice is incredible Lee and you playing and singing our first dance made it all the more special. Honestly it couldn’t have been better!
Thank you for everything and we won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting a band at their wedding. The fact you offer a fabulous DJ service as well made it very easy for us sorting the music for the day!!! Many thanks. Lorna
