The Blackmarcs were absolutely brilliant, arrived and set up with no fuss. Performed a selection of music that was 'just right' for my guests both young and old - everyone was dancing! They were polite and very professional and lots of guests said how good they were and took away their business cards. Would definitely book them again - real good singers.

Fantastic guys, both their own music and covers were brilliant. Very professional but also very friendly. Everyone at my party was super impressed.

Theblackmarcs were absolutely fantastic at our wedding (16.03.2019). They were in touch with us at all the key points in the run up to the big day to find out our timings, requests and first dance song. On the night we couldn't have asked for a better band. The music was brilliant. Our guests loved them and they kept the party going til well past midnight. They had people who we never thought we'd see on a dancefloor up dancing the night away! Thanks so much

"Booked the Black Marcs for my wedding on Friday 2nd, and they were fantastic. They included a DJ set and played two 45 minute sets. They had everyone on the dance floor from the beginning and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music they sang, and they sounded absolutely amazing.
Following their live sets they DJ'd for the last hour and took every request they could.
Cannot highly recommend another live band for an event, and following this any functions that we may have in the future would ...
