The icing on our wedding cake...

5 stars - Informer are Highly Recommended booked Informer for their Wedding in Warwickshire

“These guys are absolutely top drawer. For those who just want to hit the dance floor, they know how to please a crowd with endless banging tunes from all eras. For the more discernible music lovers, the talent is evident throughout the band, perfectly tight and clearly very accomplished musicians. They took our wedding day to the next level and the feedback from our guests was consistently excellent. In particular, they had to be flexible given a significant delay to our schedule, and they got on with the job without a fuss. In a word, awesome!”

5 stars - Informer are Highly Recommended booked Informer for their Wedding in West Sussex

“Informer were excellent and we could not have hoped for a better band to play at our wedding. We had previously seen them perform at a wedding fair and a gig but on the night they were even better than we remembered them. We had guests coming up to us all evening saying how good they were and that they were amazing. Since the wedding when talking with family and friends, we still get frequent references to how impressive they were and how much people enjoyed the music. It was great that they did a range of music from 60s to modern day as it appealed to everyone and having them play our first dance was brilliant.”

From the moment Informer started their first set they had the dance floor going

5 stars - Informer are Highly Recommended booked Informer for their Wedding in Leicestershire

“We booked Informer for our wedding last August and my father-in-law, very kindly upgraded the band to their 6-piece set up - it was well worth it! From the moment Informer started their first set they had the dance floor going and over the course of two sets it looked like every wedding guest was up, dancing and having a great time. What more can you ask for. A number of guests have subsequently commented on how good our wedding band was and we are very pleased we booked Informer. Lovely people to boot. Thank you ”

I'll be recommending you to anyone that wants a professional, talented band!!

Although many people were outside enjoying the warm evening, those of us on the dance floor enjoyed it immensely as I hope you saw.  Thanks again, I'll be recommending you to anyone that wants a professional, talented band!! ”

‘Informer - what can I say? They made the evening, not only for my clients who danced and danced and danced until we practically had to cut the power to get them off the dance floor and into bed, but also for me as I've never worked with such a great group of fabulous, easy-going musicians! Their playlist is superb, the sound they produce is huge, and I can thoroughly recommend them for your next party.’
-Emma Chesters, Director, EC Events Ltd

‘Informer recently played at an event that we arranged for 1,400 guests and they went down a storm! They really helped to enhance the perfect party atmosphere and were a wonderfully professional band to work with, both in the run up to the event and on the night. We will definitely be booking them again for future events.’
-Nicky Allison, Progressive Events

-Mark Sampson, Channel 4

‘To anyone thinking of booking Informer: Don’t hesitate. The band is great. I have booked them for two parties and on both occasions they were intrinsic in making the events highly enjoyable occasions. They were efficient and professional when dealing with the booking, and exuberant and fun in the performance. Their choice of repertoire was great and they very quickly had everyone dancing. I very much hope to use them again in the future but am aware I will have to book them very far in advance.’
