We couldn't recommend enough...

5 stars - The Dons are Highly Recommended
booked The Dons for their Wedding November 2023

“From arranging the date to the first communication with leo the organisation couldn't be smoother. All small requests were carried out and leo was a pleasure to speak too The band members arrived within plenty of time and setup without us even realising, even in the small venue we had. The whole band were great and accommodating even on the day. There variation was superb and they played such an amazing range of music that suited all the guests and us. If your after party songs or something a little heavier(like us) they are the perfect wedding band and wouldn't think twice in booking the guys again.”

Absolutely awesome! Could not recommend highly enough

booked The Dons for their Wedding in London September 2023

“Every step of booking The Dons was clear and easy. We really appreciated Marc from Alive Network checking in with us regularly and Leo from the band could not have been more helpful in finalising the details or handling our requests for how we wanted things to go on our wedding day. On the day the band were absolutely awesome, they got everybody up and dancing, they are so talented and I can’t thank them enough for helping to make our day so special. Live music is really important to me and my husband so we booked a band to ensure that our wedding day reflected such a big passion of ours, but The Dons massively surpassed our expectations and truly added to our wedding day being the best day of our lives. Thank you! Would strongly recommend.”

Simply Superb!

booked The Dons for their Wedding in Bedfordshire July 2023

“Thank you so much to The Dons for their performance! They absolutely made the evening and we had more people than we could count complimenting you without prompting from us. They were fantastic and so accomodating with requests to embarrass my sister (she smashed it unfortunately!) and unexpected Judas Priest requests!”
