Excellent music

5 stars - The Dukes are Highly Recommended
booked The Dukes for their Wedding in Buckinghamshire April 2024

“I can honestly say the band was the highlight of our wedding day. We had several professional musicians amongst our guests, and all of them commented on how excellent the band was. They engaged the audience through the evening, getting the party started and energy levels high until the end of the night. I really can’t praise them enough and would happily recommend them to anyone looking to book.”

The Dukes rocked

5 stars - The Dukes are Highly Recommended
booked The Dukes for their Wedding in Gloucestershire April 2024

“The Dukes were phenomenal at our wedding, their performance was spot on and were a great hit with our guests. The band kept the guests on the dancefloor all night with hit after hit. I don't think there was a single song that had people wandering off for a rest. When you are looking through these websites and listening to the pre-recorded songs you wonder whether the band will sound as good live, the Dukes were even better. We spent a lot of time umming and ahing trying to choose a band that ticked all the boxes, save yourself the time and go with the Dukes as they will not disappoint. Communication was with Leo from the band and he was responsive and patient with our requests. The set-up and show went flawlessly. The chaps on the day were very pleasant to talk to and were flexible when we started running over. We chose the Dukes as they had an amazing sound and an extensive playlist. They played all the classics but had more than a few secret bangers then went down a charm....”

They rock and rolled us over

5 stars - The Dukes are Highly Recommended
booked The Dukes for their event in Surrey February 2024

“From start to finish The Dukes were awesome. They were very professional in their approach which initially involved discreetly setting up their equipment while the rest of us ate our dinner. They then read the room as they said they would and created a set which helped many of us party attendees get a groove on. I recommend The Dukes without hesitation.”


5 stars - The Dukes are Highly Recommended
booked The Dukes for their event in Hampshire December 2023

“Absolutely brilliant- people were saying on the night and after how good the Dukes were. We can be a bit raucous when all together being a big forestry company and the lads were great they fitted in a treat and made the evening so much fun. Thank you very much”
