What event planners say about our suppliers


If ever there was a band who deserve the title "Incredible" then it's Backbeat. Person after person came up to me and said how much fun they were having and how much the band made them want to dance. We thought we got brilliant value for money, considering the size of the band. They were willing to go out of their way to give us what we wanted - and always with a smile. They even found the ideal song to fit with a request for a dance between a daughter and her father - that was so cute!


What a fantastic band. You really made our wedding reception with great songs, incredible vocals, amazing musical talent and pure class. We had so much praise for the band on the night and would like to thank you for making our night even more special and performing a fantastic version of our first dance. Would highly recommend you. Jo & Andy.


• Just a note to say thanks for all your hard work and support on our Christmas Party. Everyone has provided incredibly positive feedback and I know we won’t be looking far for next year’s entertainment! Jordan,
