What event planners say about our suppliers


The first big ask was ‘please play this song that no one has ever heard of as our first dance’. And they played it perfectly. The second thing was our style of music in between live sets, we didn’t want cheese, YMCA or Dancing Queen. We wanted our favourites and current chart music and that’s what we got. The dance floor was packed all night long, the band got one of our guests to sing on stage. It was awesome having One Band there.


First of all I would like to thank you for coming to Kelly's 21st. I have had very good feedback from the guests and everyone I spoke to said they thoroughly enjoyed the steel pan music and for some it actually made their night. I would certainly recommend you should anyone ask me about steel bands. Once again thank you for entertaining us, we all had a marvellous time and enjoyed your music very much.


Thank you, guys, for finding time beforehand to rehearse with Amy, the bridegroom’s sister, who sang Elton John’s “Your Song” for the bride and groom’s 1st dance. It was beautiful and very special to have her sing their first song with accompaniment from the band. I think everyone was very moved by it (we are hoping someone filmed it but are not sure!). The dance floor was packed all evening for the ceilidh and we all had great fun – which was the intention. It was an amazing day, evening and whole weekend – we carried on the celebrations on Sunday! Thank you to Black Velvet Band for helping to make the wedding so memorable.
