10/10 Musical Performance

5 stars - Dexter are Highly Recommended
booked Dexter for their Wedding in All foreign locations September 2022

“Dexter are the best band around. Tim, Cat & Martin are firstly great people & are very passionate. It's clearly shown in their performance & their music. They play a total range from Jazz to Pop when on the main stage. Tim & Cat's acoustic set was something else & I hope they enjoyed playing at Villa Ulignano :-)”

“Everyone really loved the band at our wedding , whilst it had been a long day and people a bit dispersed , they still got persons on the floor and gave a really passionate and professional performance … everyone loved them , bride and groom included … I’m the latter and they certainly had me dancing a lot ( even though I am rubbish) .. so well done to them all”


Amazing from start to finish!

5 stars - Dexter are Highly Recommended
booked Dexter for their event in Berkshire July 2022

“The band sounded fantastic, nothing but compliments from all the guests. I couldn't have asked for me. Got everyone up on their feet. They were also just a pleasure and a breeze to deal with which is so important when planning an event. Professional and helpful from start to finish. Would use them again and again, couldn't speak highly enough of them. Both acoustic and full band session was great.”
