booked Riff Kings for their Wedding in Nottinghamshire August 2021

“The Riff Kings were truly fantastic at out wedding. With the difficulties of the pandemic, they were very accommodating with being able to move dates, which added a lot of peace of mind to us. We were able to see the bands setlist to see what songs they will play, and allowed us to see if we wanted any not played. The band were excellent on the day and the feedback from our guests was excellent. Would recommend them 100%!”

Epic!! Couldn’t of wished for a better band

booked Riff Kings for their Wedding in Berkshire August 2021

“The Riff Kings played at my wedding and we couldn’t of asked for a better band. Firstly you can judge how good a band is by how full the dance floor and the dance floor was chocked full. They were able to do a live version of our first dance song which was so good - an awesome way to kick off the evening party. Outside of each band member being super friendly their a highly skilled musicians, each having a little riff at the end of the session. 2 weeks since our big day, family and friends are still talking about how good they were. All I can do is thank them for their time - they helped make are day epic Thank you, thank you, thank you”
