Thank you and your band for your brilliant contribution to my party on Saturday

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their event in Essex

“Nigel and I just wanted to thank you and your band for your brilliant contribution to my party on Saturday evening and for persevering even though you were obviously feeling unwell. You’ve had so many compliments from our guests I can’t begin to tell you. My 89 year old mum said yesterday she could have listened to you all night. We all had a fabulous time. Thank you once again and hope to see you in action again one day soon. Carol Franklin ”

If you're looking for an amazing band, look no further. You've found them.

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their event in Essex

“I would just like to say that Sophie and the Exciters are the best band ever for a wedding or a party. You couldn't ask for a better band. Sophie's voice is amazing. Our first dance was At Last by Etta James and it was simply beautiful. She has a very powerful and emotive voice and is such an amazing performer. She came onto the dance floor a lot and sang to people including my 6 year old godson who was so excited. The other musicians were quite frankly the best I and my guests (as many came to tell me) had ever seen at a wedding. The guitarist in particular was outstanding. All the band really know how to get a party going as the energy they poured out into us got everyone, and I do mean everyone including my 94 year-old grandmother who was doing the jive, on the dance floor. We had been worried as half of the guests were French and that they would stay on the sidelines and watch instead of dance. However, I have never seen them go for it on the dancing front and it's all thanks to S...”

Sophie and the Exciters were absolutely brilliant.

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their Wedding in West Midlands

“Sophie and the Exciters were absolutely brilliant. The music was spot on, just what we were looking for, and everyone had a great time. Loads of people were telling us how good you were, and I know one or two even asked for your details so we will be sure to pass those on to them! We and everyone there also loved the first dance, so thank you for learning that for us too! I spent a lot of time (and stress!) looking for a band because I was so concerned that everyone should have a good night, but I didn't need to worry. The band were awesome, played exactly the right music throughout the night, and everyone was dancing right until the end of the evening. They even learnt our first dance when we requested it, and we loved it. Everyone commented after on how good they were, and some people even asked for their details. Sophie was an excellent front-woman, full of energy when she was performing, and very lovely and polite when not on stage. I'd definitely book them again, and recomme...”

We would recommend to anyone.

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their Wedding at The Reid Rooms in Essex

“Sophie and the Exciters were a great hit with our guests and we received a lot of positive feedback on their performance. We selected a playlist for the band and the choices we made were just right for our audience, encouraging people to get up and dance. It is a little daunting booking a band you have never heard play live as you are never quite sure what you are going to get; I can honestly say that Sophie and the band met our expectations (and they are quite high) and delivered a good evening’s entertainment. Not only did they sound excellent but Sophie also brought personality to her performance. We would recommend to anyone.”

True professionals!

“I truly loved Sophie and the Exciters. Great song choices, fabulous performances from all band members and Sophie has a stunning voice! Furthermore, her gregarious nature made her a great addition to our guests during the set breaks. True professionals! I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. In fact, I will make sure I do! Should I have any occasion to, I would definitely hire them again. Much love to Sophie and the Exciters, I'm your biggest fan!!!!”
