booked The Family for their Wedding

““I’d just like to say thanks so much to Pete and all of The Family for helping to make mine and Emma’s wedding so special. When I was was trying to find a band that would help me with my very specific requirements I never expected to get such a enthusiastic and passionate response. It was plain to see The Family are a band that love what they do and couldn’t have been more helpful. As a result the vision I had for a long time came together perfectly!””

booked The Family for their Wedding

““Well what can we say apart from thank you, thank you, thank you! Reece and I stumbled across The Family at a wedding fayre, which was a bit dull to say the least, we were just about to leave feeling disappointed when The Family began! After that we were dancing along in our seats and it was the best wedding fayre we went to! I knew then they were the band for us! Pete who helped us find the best package to suit our needs and those of our venue was very helpful and professional throughout. Any questions would be answered via email promptly and in detail, playlists were discussed and adapted, the band were so amenable to our tastes as well as in keeping with the venues atmosphere, and we had no doubt that what they would do on our wedding day would be perfect. On the day however wow did they beat our expectations!! They had learnt and played our first dance song which was amazing, then they had our guests (and us) up dancing all night long- what could be better. Everyone commente...”

booked The Family for their Wedding

““The Family really added an extra sparkle to an already brilliant day – we’re so pleased we found them. We knew how important music would be for creating the atmosphere we wanted and making it a memorable day for our guests, so we picked every element really carefully – from the church arrival to the pre-dinner drinks, through to the evening do. My biggest fear for the night was an empty dance floor, but that just wasn’t going to be a problem with Pete and the band in charge. We danced all night and the guests loved the funky tunes and threw themselves into the crowd participation. So many people congratulated us afterwards on what a cool and talented band we had. The stand out highlight for us, though, was Tolu playing All of Me by John Legend live for our first dance and singing it so soulfully. It made it such a special moment for us. Aside from the excellent entertainment they provided, they were a fantastic support in the run up to the day. Pete was ...”
