Great band, great night

5 stars - Academy are Highly Recommended
booked Academy for their Wedding in Leicestershire July 2023

“Academy played our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The guys got everyone dancing from our youngest to our oldest guests, and did a great job with the first dance song. Would highly recommend!”

Great Band - Dancefloor Full All Night!

5 stars - Academy are Highly Recommended
booked Academy for their Wedding in Oxfordshire May 2023

“We were very happy with the bands performance at our wedding. They arrived on time and set up very quietly. They performed our first dance song choice fantastically and kept the dancefloor full for both of their 1 hour sets. They worked with the music equipment provided by our venue and checked in with myself and the groom during the night to see if we were happy with everything. We provided some input for the set list but left the band to make the final choices based on their experience. We thought the music was great.”

A fantastic band that got everyone dancing!
