The Footlights

"This was the first time I'd ever tried to book a band, let alone a band for my wedding day. I found Alive Network very professional and helpful throughout the process. I would recommend Alive Network to others.

The Footlights exceeded all expectations, from their choice of set and knowing what music to play and when, to the interaction with the wedding guests, to the energy that they put into their performances.

Everybody loved the band, with the only negative comment being that some guests found them a little loud - but you can not please everyone! Many guests expressed to us that the band were fantastic and that they didn't want the band to stop at any point during the night!

The wedding guests feedback from the night and afterwards were really very positive, with people still talking about them for weeks afterwards.

Altogether a great experience for all, and it definitely gave our wedding day the send off/ signature that we were looking for. I would whole heartedly recommend The Footlights to others.

Many thanks Gemma!
