Great band! Would recommend for any event

5 stars - The Blakes are Highly Recommended booked The Blakes for their event in Greater Manchester January 2020

“The Blakes were great - they did a real mix of songs which got people up and dancing. They had a difficult crowd as it was a corporate dinner but they had a good group up and dancing and even had requests for another song (twice!) at the end of the night.”

From start to finish, The Blake’s were excellent

5 stars - The Blakes are Highly Recommended booked The Blakes for their Wedding at Manchester Great & New Synagogue in Lancashire

“From start to finish, The Blake’s were excellent.  We originally had asked them to arrive at our venue for 5pm, but about a week before our wedding we realized that we needed to make that 4pm and although there was a small extra charge for the earlier arrival, the band were able to accommodate us without any hesitation.  The lead singer, Maria also contacted the company that were providing us with the stage, dance floor and lighting to liaise regarding what lighting each were bringing.  I contacted Maria prior to the wedding to discuss our requirements regarding first dance song and music for the toasts.  Maria provided me with links to a website where I could locate the correct music for the toasts. Her attention to detail was perfect – she was even able to tell me how many seconds the intro was on our first dance song!! I also discussed with her the possibility of the groom singing on the night and Maria and her team even accommodated this, again with...”
