The Cyclones is highly recommended

"This was one part of the wedding that we knew would make or break the evening. We wildly underestimated how good The Cyclones would be and several times during the evening I stood back just to watch them perform and see our guests going crazy for them!

They were a pleasure to deal with on the day, and great guys. The selection of music they played was great and we highly recommend getting the fiddler as part of the package, as he was superb.

Thank you to you all for contributing to a great day for us."

About The Cyclones
The Cyclone's set is geared very much towards keeping people on the dance floor and generating a party atmosphere, with strong harmonies, quality vocals, and energetic performances. The Cyclones are perfect for weddings and special events with the ability to throw in the relevant genres to suit all ages. And if you'd like that Irish or Jewish twist, they can add in their top fiddle player to suit the occasion!

Alistair the bass player also sings and fronts the band. Having been the singer/song writer of Redwood, signed to Almo Sounds, who toured with Feeder and released two albums, he now pursues a solo career of writing and producing, when he is not out rocking with The Cyclones (Radio 2 airplay, Guildford Festival etc).

Chris Hughes plays drums and sings. Previously in Redwood with Alistair, before joining Mindwire, he completes the three part vocal harmonies that you will hear throughout the live set. He also DJs between, before and after the live band sets, playing disco tracks or any other recorded music that might be required.

On guitar and vocals is Rob, who was also in Redwood. His experience with function and original bands is vast, with soundtrack and advertising writing credits, tours in the Middle East, session work in all genres of music. He is also a founder member of Goldrush, the foremost Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young tribute act in the UK!

The Irish fiddle adds a whole new dimension to any rock set, and also gives us the jigs and reels that energise the night in a whole different way. Our fiddle players are all from the top of their professions and are of world class standard, with backgrounds in feature film soundtrack recording and classical recitals as well as being steeped in the traditions of Celtic fiddle – credits include Morcheeba, All About Eve, Alison Moyet, David Soul, James Galway.... with performances in front of such people as Prince Charles, Jefferey Archer, Tony Blair, Princess Diana, Tom Hanks, Sting, Elton John, Naomi Campbell, Michael Caine, Kylie Minogue etc.

Testimonials
"A big thank you to you and the band for playing at our Christmas Party last week. The atmosphere was great and everyone loved the music! Literally everyone (Directors and Presidents included!) were up on the dance floor so thanks for helping make it such a good night!"
The Social Committee of the Rugby Football Union, December 2010

"The Cyclones were awesome and turned a fantastic celebration into a full on party. You read the crowd perfectly and the dance floor was full all night and we had loads of comments about how brilliant you were. You are all great musicians and the fiddler brought something really different to it- Sex on Fire was a definite favourite. You exceeded all our expectations- thank you!"
Gavin and Vanessa, Wedding Reception, Woburn Abbey, October 2010

"Thank you so much for arranging the music for our wedding on 11th September 2010, you were amazing. We had the most fantastic wedding and the live band was the icing on the cake. We loved the variation of music and we were so pleased with the length of time you played. All the guests loved the sets, as I am sure you noticed by the packed dance floor all night! We have received a number of thank you letters and cards from guests and many of them have mentioned how great the band was. Having a great live band definitely makes a wedding and we would recommend you to anyone looking to finish their wedding off in style! Thanks again."
Sarah & James Dixon, Wedding Reception, Marquee, September 2010

"I wanted to thank you and the band for providing such fantastic music for our wedding on 25th Sep in Ingatestone. You guys were absolutely brilliant and we have had so many rave reviews about you from all our friend and family. The dance floor was full the entire evening and that was down to you. You provided a perfect mix of music for everyone there and the Irish tunes went down so well with everyone. Thank you for contributing to making our wedding such as success."
Anna and Paddy, Wedding Reception, Marquee, September 2010

"Both Jo and myself were extremely happy with the music played at our wedding, everyone has mentioned how good the band was! We had such a great evening, it flew past to be honest, but you guys made the evening very special. Thank you!"
Ian & Jo Woodcock, Wedding Reception, Sharnbrook Hotel, September 2010

"Alive Network were extremely helpful whilst we were booking, Clare was only a quick email away and always replied quickly and efficiently. The paperwork we were provided with once we had booked was easy to follow and complete with anything we may of needed.

The Cyclones were a superb choice, anyone wanting irish/english new and older music will not be disappointed. They were prompt when emailed and had an array of different music choices and although they had set lists, they were happy for us to remove or add anything to the list.

The option to learn our first dance was an added extra that not everyone offers, to have our first dance sung by the band was amazing and something we will remember from our day.

Everyone that was at our wedding commented at some point about the band, everyone enjoyed the music and there was never an empty dance floor.

Many thanks once again to all the band. The wedding would not have been the same without you.

Many thanks,

the new mr and Mrs Parke

""Having now had a few weeks to calm down after our wedding and honeymoon, I really wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding on the 10th September.

So many of our guests from all age groups have commented on how fab you guys were and definitely got everyone up and dancing, which really made the night.

I also wanted to apologise for my rather drunken neighbour, who I think gave your drummer a bit a scare having nearly toppled into him twice....definitely entertained our guests - a bit of an added bonus for us!....

I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends for future engagements."
