Incredible from Start to Finish

5 stars - Academy are Highly Recommended booked Academy for their Wedding in London September 2019

“We booked Academy for our wedding and right from the start I knew we were onto a good thing with excellent communication straight away. They were able to accommodate all our requests with no problems and it was easy to pick a great list of songs from their large repertoire. They also added in a couple of heavier tunes for me personally. On the night they turned up on time, looking sharp and were setup quickly. Everyone loved them and had a great time dancing away all night. A special mention to their lead man Adam who is not only a great singer but a super skillful guitarist. I couldn't recommend these guys highly enough and we are so thankful to them for making our wedding day so special and turning it into an amazing party which is what we wanted!!!”

Great energy- the guests loved them

5 stars - Academy are Highly Recommended booked Academy for their Wedding in Surrey September 2018

“These guys were amazing! We went for a chilled out festival/marquee wedding and the band were able to enhance this theme. Great song choices to get the crowd on the dance floor- happy to offer advice on music choices but took into account our preferences. The acoustic set whilst we were eating hit the spot and gave an otherwise quieter time a bit more of an atmosphere. The performance was lively and had great energy. All of our guests asked where we found them, we would most definitely book them again and recommend them to friends and family.”

Brilliant band and couldn't recommend more!

5 stars - Academy are Highly Recommended booked Academy for their Wedding in Devon September 2018

5 stars - Academy are Highly Recommended booked Academy for their Wedding

“We booked the band Academy for my daughters wedding at the Underscar Manor in Saturday 14th July through your company and just wanted to thank you and let you know how amazing they were. Their repertoire of songs was huge with a song for all genres and age groups and they took requests. All the guests loved them and the dance floor was full all night. The acoustic section during the reception was also really good and they went out of their way to accommodate us. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
