“The most incredible performance from Dexter on our wedding day ! We could not be happier. On top of this they were all absolutely lovely lovely people and bent over backwards to accommodate everything we wanted from our evening music entertainment. We can’t thank you all enough xx”

5 stars - Dexter are Highly Recommended
booked Dexter for their Wedding in Herefordshire October 2020

“Cat and Steve were simply amazing. They were great communicators in the run up to the event, and remained so flexible in the face of great change (aka Covid!). Cat’s voice was knockout, as was Steve’s guitar talent. Despite only being allowed 2 of the 5 piece band, the dance floor was full and the tunes were very well chosen. Would highly recommend this band.”

Amazing band and so wonderful to work with!
