5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended booked The Colts for their Wedding in Bedfordshire December 2019

“Where to start, well, The Beach Boys - God only knows. This was the song for our first dance as Husband and Wife, and it was played superbly. From this point on, the tempo raised, the noise increased and the party got into full swing. The Colts are a well organised, engaging, experienced and bloody good fun band. Our guests the following morning, many with a thick head, asked where we tracked down The Colts as by far they were one of the best bands they had experienced. Alive Network do have a fantastic selection of bands but for us The Colts have the range and style that we enjoy. Hoping our marriage stays the course, we won't need to book them for another of our weddings though we will certainly be keeping them in sight for other events as well. Our advise - watch their videos to get a flavour and then book them and enjoy. Best Wishes Rachel and Christian Cole”


Brilliant band had everyone dancing

5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended booked The Colts for their Wedding in Devon October 2019

“We booked The Colts via a recommendation of a friend and could not have been happier! They were really easy to deal with – we had a chat before the wedding day to make sure we were on the same page then I could just leave them to it on the day. The music selection was perfect - exactly what we wanted – and we loved our first dance song which they learned especially. They had everyone dancing and having a lot of fun.”


Absolutely amazing wedding band!

Perfect performance, nothing was too much trouble

5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended booked The Colts for their Wedding in West Sussex September 2019

“10/10 for the Colts, they were superb. We asked if they could do "Slide-Away" as our first dance and they nailed it! A good mix of old and new songs across the evening. A very good performance, would recommend them to anyone!”
