The Talking Bird Collective were quite frankly outstanding in both planning and performance on my special day. What really stood out for me was how clear it was they were truly concerned with getting everything just right and in doing this they displayed a lot of empathy for the customer and pride in their work.

The Talking Bird Collective performed at my Wedding in the summer and were absolutely phenomenal. Their professionalism and presentation were fantastic which really made us feel at ease as the customer. The bands repertoire was everything we could have dreamed of and more, it catered to all guests and made everyone want to have a boogie. The Talking Bird Collective’s energy brought our Wedding well and truly alive, with a full dance floor all night long and a non-stop singing crowd. I cannot recommend them enough, they were amazing!!!!

Excellent band, varied repertoire, particularly liked the fact there were no backing tracks - horn parts all played live.

Contacted these guys for my cousins wedding and they could not have been more suited to the occasion! Excellent range of styles of music, we even got to request songs in advance to be played especially for the wedding party. Some of the musicians showed off their versatility by playing more than one instrument whilst also being top class singers. Great entertainment!

Had a party for my (big) Birthday. Talking Bird.. what can be said? A group of highly talented musicians with a great range of tunes. Arrived, set up, played, absolutely no problems at all. Totally professional, I'd book them again. (10 / 10)

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you all. The boys were fantastic, a great repertoire with something for everyone. So helpful making announcements, stepping in when the venue had trouble with their playlist, and set up and packed away so smoothly. Fantastic vocals and top quality musicians! Everyone really enjoyed :)
