Cannot recommend Beat Collective enough

5 stars - Beat Collective are Highly Recommended
booked Beat Collective for their Wedding in Bristol

“An ENORMOUS thank you - the band absolutely smashed it on at our wedding. They brought such an incredible energy all through the evening and kept the dancefloor absolutely packed until the end of the second set, and left us wanting so much more. The DJ kept everyone bouncing as well and my (now!) mother-in-law had to drag about 50 people off the dancefloor at half one so she could go home. We’ve been busy recommending the band to all and sundry who are doing any sort of event in the West Country at all! We had such an incredible time all through the day but you guys absolutely capped it. We seriously cannot thank you enough.”

booked Beat Collective for their event in Devon

“What made the night incredibly special was not only the brilliant musicians and choice of party songs, but the fact they all enjoyed performing as much as we all enjoyed dancing and singing along with the hits. Each member did a fantastic and professional job but the two girl singers were a special highlight with their great vocals and infectious humour. Thanks Beat Collective from one very happy fifty year old.”

Quite simply – outstanding

5 stars - Beat Collective are Highly Recommended
booked Beat Collective for their event

“The description ‘function band’ really should be banned from use on acts’ publicity. It certainly does groups like Beat Collective no favours, conjuring up images of staid, elderly musicians wearing bow ties and drab formal attire. But, this band’s six-strong line-up here performed as good a showcase set I’ve seen for a long time from a so-called function outfit. The two lead female vocalists are top drawer, the musicians edgy and the spin they manage to put on really old numbers, like Proud Mary, is a lesson for other bands on the circuit.”

5 stars - Beat Collective are Highly Recommended
booked Beat Collective for their event in Northamptonshire

“May I first thank you very much for what you and your band colleagues professionalism, flexibility and team spirit in making what has been deemed the most successful Sales Meeting and Gala Awards Night to date! I have had today the opportunity of speaking with my client Lisa Adams, and she is completely “blown-away” on what we all produced for her training weekend and Awards Night. Lisa has had “none-stop praise” from her Vendors, her fellow Directors and her Sales Teams North and South since going into her office today!! She said that this is; “in no small part” in what we all provided and thanked me for making her “look great” on the night. This is as a direct result of your bands collective professionalism, attention, energy and detail to the Awards running order and your part in that. Your “Party Set” kept the dance floor buzzing all night which made this such a successful event to the end! I have had the pleasure of producing the Micro-P conference and awards ni...”
