They brought so much energy to our night!

5 stars - The Critical Hits are Highly Recommended booked The Critical Hits for their Wedding

“I booked the Critical Hits for my wedding. They performed two sets; the first was light and jazzy (on our request), and the second really got the crowd going! Their renditions of classic and modern pop tunes were fabulous, and they brought so much energy to our night. Very easy to work with, punctual, and professional. Definitely would recommend!”


Extremely professional!

“We have used the Critical Hits for two university events and they did a fantastic job each time! Our guests loved their performance and got out of their seats to dance. We would highly recommend using this band and we will certainly be asking them to perform again. They are also really easy to work with and very reliable. They turn up on time and just get on with it and deliver great music!”
