Brilliant band - so lively, easy to communicate with and made the day so easy!

5 stars - The Connection are Highly Recommended
booked The Connection for their Wedding in Bristol September 2022

“The band were brilliant - very lively with a strong lead singer, good repertoire and brilliant, lively manner. They got everyone dancing almost immediately and several people got up to sing with them - which was great fun. The band were also very professional and accommodating. They were able to deal with some of the quirks of our venue and communicated regularly and effectively with us to choose songs and confirm the plan for the day. The band adjusted their schedule on the day to avoid interrupting our speeches and everything required so little effort from us that the day was very simple.”

Amazing Energy, Absolutely Fantastic

5 stars - The Connection are Highly Recommended
booked The Connection for their Wedding August 2022

“Just wanted to say Thank You! You guys brought an amazing energy to the evening and so many people have commented to us since how much they enjoyed the music. The conga line and dance off were fantastic, and I certainly didn't expect to be rapping American Boy when I started my day. You were all so professional, and it look like you had as much fun as we all did! Thank you! We will definitely be recommending you to all our friends!”
