Halos came to play at our wedding and they were absolutely INCREDIBLE! We really just can't recommend them enough - they totally brought the party for the evening. Both myself and my husband as well as all of our guests had an absolutely incredible time - our guests have talked about it as one of their favourite parts of the day. They were so flexible with their set list and the DJ was just perfect on the evening, playing lots of requests to keep our guests happy. The lead vocalist has to have a shout out - what a voice!! Thanks so much to the Halos for being part of our day and being utterly, utterly brilliant - everyone should book this band!

Halos were everything that we hoped they'd be and more. When we set out in search of our wedding band, we quickly discovered that there are hundreds generic wedding bands that all play the same thing (a lot of chart pop music). We wanted a band with an edge who could play soul, rnb, garage, and motown as well as some pop, and they definitely delivered. Julie, the female lead, is sensational!! One of the most important things for us was to find a band who looked like they were enjoying themselves. We wanted a band who would dance, interact with the crowd and look like they were enjoying their music as much as us... Halos are exactly the band for this. All of our guests commented on how fantastic Halos were, and where did we find them. I can't recommend them enough!! Thank you guys, we'll see you again for sure.

We had a party at our house in Kent for my wife's 40th this weekend and booked Halos to play (Jim and Julie as a duo). The music selection was superb as was Julie's voice and Jim's guitar playing. It was a pleasure to meet them both too - they are very friendly and highly professional. We, as well as all our guests, would recommend these guys so once again a big thank you for being an important part of a fantastic day. All the best!

Halos helped make my husbands 40th an afternoon and night to remember.
Arrived with loads of time to set up, and 2 hour sets, great vibe and a lovely voice for a long summer afternoon. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

"Tier 1 performers, the Halo's played a sensational couple of sets at our wedding.
Week's later everyone still mentions how great they were, and a few are planning on booking them for their events too.
Their overall sound and style is fantastic, and Julie's vocals are absolutely mega. They delivered exactly what they promised, and smashed out refreshing versions of well known classics without ever hitting any cliche tunes.
Jim was outstanding to deal with and made the whole coordination a breeze. He checked in a couple of times over the evening to make sure things were on point too.
I don't think you'll find a more talented and professional group on the event circuit. Can not recommend these guys highly enough. Absolutely stellar outfit! Book them. You will not be disappointed."

Halos were great band, they really listened to what I wanted to have played and changed the set when requested. They were really friendly on the night; the music was really good and nearly everyone wanted to know where I had found them. They helped make my birthday party a very special event and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a live, friendly energetic band for that special occasion.
