So glad we chose them for our wedding day!

5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended
booked The Colts for their Wedding in East Sussex April 2022

“The Colts played at our wedding and were fantastic. Easy communication before the event, we chose them for their extensive set list and they were happy to tailor this to what we wanted and not play anything we didn’t want. They arrived and were happy to wait for us to move out of the main room so they weren’t setting up around us. The music was brilliant, we loved our first dance song they played and all the music was amazing. We were so happy with our choice and would recommend them to anyone!”


The Colts are brilliant and get everyone up dancing.

5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended
booked The Colts for their Wedding in Gloucestershire January 2022

“The Colts were amazing. They were friendly and organised, did an amazing job with the version of our first dance and played a great selection of songs which were appropriate for the variety of age ranges. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”


Barn busting performance that wowed our guests!

5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended
booked The Colts for their Wedding in Buckinghamshire January 2022

“The Colts exceeded all our expectations at our winter wedding. So many of our guests commented on how fantastic they were and where did we find them! Our venue had a sound limiter at 95dB but that was more than adequate, after finding the limit just once and making minor tweaks the rest of the set was uninterrupted and full of bangers! Communication was easy and we were able to ensure that Sheeran and Beiber were banished from the running order. Highly recommended, you can trust these great guys to deliver an amazing time. The format of the website and published repertoire of bands make it very easy to compare different acts and reviews make it feel like an informed decision. Being able to see optional extras and prices make it easy to find the right act at the right budget.”


They read the audience perfectly

5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended
booked The Colts for their event in London November 2021

“The Colts played at our Awards Ceremony at The May Fair Hotel in London and very much got the crowd up and dancing. They read the audience perfectly and were really flexible around timings and adjusting their sets to fit the event timings which really helped us. They had a hugely eclectic range of songs to play, starting the evening with a selection of Rat Pack style songs and then into full-on dancing later on. Lovely guys and super easy to work with. Would highly recommend for any kind of event where your audience wants to have a good time.”


Super friendly, great music and professional.

5 stars - The Colts are Highly Recommended
booked The Colts for their Wedding in Norfolk October 2021

“Really good band, had compliments and multiple people ask who they were so they could recommend them in the future. They were also great with the kids, letting some of the younger ones see how they setup as we had a very interested toddler. Felt the music was well tailored for the audience, a bit of something for everyone. Couldn’t be more happier with everything.”
