The Modern Way are a brilliant band. They incorporated our song choices in their set list, were a really high quality and got everyone up on the dance floor. They read the audience really well and added elements in if they thought we'd like it (dance offs etc.). Lots of our friends commented on how good they were and I'd definitely recommend them for any party.

The Modern Way were a fantastic band. They had everyone dancing all night and played a brilliant selection of songs. They even played our first dance which was an accoustic version of Rihanna - We Found Love, which wasn't part of their repertoire. We sent them a copy of the kind of thing we wanted and they rehearsed and played it exactly how we wanted it on the night. They were absolutely amazing all night, a particular highlight was the dance off to Blurred Lines between all the guys and girls. They were entertaining, professional and we couldm't have asked for anything more from them. They made the evening reception a memorable occasion for everyone there! I would 100% recommend them to anyone who wants a fun filled PARTY and a talented band to play at their wedding! Thank you The Modern Way!!!!! Charl and Dave x

The Modern Way played at our wedding in Nottingham on 6th September. They were absolutely brilliant. From my 6 year old niece to my 91 year old granny - all were up and dancing. They were friendly and professional and we would not hesitate to recommend them. They tweaked their set ahead of the day to include some of our requests but as soon as they got in touch it was immediately obvious they knew their stuff and we were more than happy with their brilliant set list (and dj-ing). I looked at lots of bands online before booking The Modern Way - we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Fantastic. Look no further. Book them!

I booked The Modern Way through Alive Network as I felt it was the best way to secure a band for our wedding. The whole process was incredibly easy and the service they provided was great. When the band started playing, they absolutely blew us away. There is nothing you could fault about them - so friendly, smiley and in general just lovely people. But most importantly, our guests absolutely loved them and had everyone of all ages were dancing all night. Since then, we've had so many people ask where we found them. I would so highly recommend this band for your wedding - they aren't just a band, they're proper entertainers!

Booking through Alive Network was easy and hassle free, their website really gives you a feel for each band and their staff are helpful and attentive with any questions you may have both prior to and during the booking process. The Modern Way were absolutely amazing and really made our wedding day. They had everyone up on the dance floor from start to finish, capturing the mood of the audience perfectly with their varied set list and song choices. They were fun, enthusiastic and entertaining, interacting with our guests and professional throughout. There were so many highlights during their sets but the Proclaimers and Sweet Child Of Mine will live long in the memory. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
