booked Rude Boy Mitch and The Two Tones for their Wedding in Cumbria

“The performance was great, beyond our expectations. Dave is a charismatic front man and got the guests dancing, they learnt and played some specially requested songs and did really well with them, everyone had a great time and even quoted “ they were the best wedding band we’ve ever seen” and that was from the photographer, who’s literally seen hundreds over the years in her work! Would highly recommend.”

Thanks for being so brilliant.

booked Rude Boy Mitch and The Two Tones for their Wedding in West Yorkshire

“Rude Boy Mitch and the Two Tones were magnificent; we couldn’t have been happier with their performance at our wedding. They were punctual, great at communication before the big day, and even played a cheeky jazz set before their main after dinner set. They got everyone stomping on the dance-floor and my dad – who is a musician – developed a deep music crush on them. He talked about them endlessly afterwards, which is just testament to how much they rocked the joint. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone and everyone. Thanks for being so brilliant.”

They sang and played so well. 10/10

“Booked Tow Tone for my wedding day, and I could not be happier! Good communication before the event. Willing to learn and perform special requested songs. Arrived on time for equipment setup and sound check. Well-presented and friendly! Most importantly they sang and played so well that if you think the videos are good, the live performance was even better! 10/10”

We would highly recommend Rude Boy Mitch and The Two Tones.

booked Rude Boy Mitch and The Two Tones for their event

“We would like to thank Mitch and the band for an amazing day. The band started with a jazz set during our drinks reception this was just a taster for an amazing night ahead. The band played two sets and were also very good to allow a member of the family who flew over from America to play a song with them which really made their trip and evening a very special one. The music had a great range from early sixties up to the present day and the dance floor was always buzzing with people dancing. We would highly recommend the band to anyone wishing to have a good party or to make their wedding a very special event.”

Thank you all for making our wedding day more special than we ever could have dr...

“Thank you all for making our wedding day more special than we ever could have dreamt. We are both so grateful for your time and effort you put in to all the different musical arrangements. The whole wedding party were so impressed with your piano, jazz and evening sets. Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without it. Thank you so much!”
