Stephen Dagnall, Gladstone Village Hall, Neston, 2nd July 2016
Just wanted to say thanks for last night - We have had nothing but positive comments from our guests about yourselves - including the photographer who said that you were probably the best wedding band he had seen! Everyone seemed to have a really good dance too, so thank you!
Huw Friar, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, 17th June 2016
We booked The Firebirds for our wedding. They looked and sounded amazing, and were accommodating to all our requirements on the day. Everyone loved them, and kept people on the dance floor all night long. Have already recommended to some friends.
Graham Oldham Campbell. The Belle Epoque, Knutsford, 11th June 2016
These guys were recommended for our wedding, and now I know why. Contact and booking was easy and slick, set up was discreet. The performance was lovely, engaging and had everybody up and on their feet. Real good selection of music. Totally recommended to make your night. We and our guests loved em.
Dan McGlynn, Styal Lodge, Cheshire, 3rd June 2016
Paul - thank you so much for such an incredible performance last night. I honestly cannot tell you how perfect every single tune was. I can think of no better band for our wedding. So many compliments for you guys. Heartfelt thanks to you all from both of us.
James Armstrong, Eaves Hall, Clitheroe, 29th May 2016
Don't think I grabbed you before you left, just thought I'd drop a text to say thanks for last night, you went down an absolute storm, was quality! Would highly recommend the band!
Lucy Caffreym, East Lodge Hotel, Matlock, 19th May 2016
The booking system was both easy and efficient. Helen was a little slow in responding to our queries but apologised as she had been out of the country. The music produced by Helen and her partner was wonderful. We really enjoyed it, her voice is lovely one of guest compared her to carol carpenter!! They were very flexible and even learned a requested song during their break - how accommodating was that? The music was varied and so good we would like to say thank you to them. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Helen Roscoe, Private grounds wedding in Widnes, 14th May 2016
The Firebirds are a wonderfully talented, quirky, unique group of musicians, offering old and new classics and making them their own. They kept people on the dance floor and suited the vibe of our wedding perfectly. We didn't need to choose a set list because we trusted their ability to work with the feel of the party. Great communicators and a really friendly group, we highly recommend them for any event, gig, wedding or festival!
Becky Titley and Chris Malbon, Yeldersley Hall, Derbyshire, 30th April 2016
The Firebirds were fantastic at our wedding, they tailored & performed our first dance better than we could have dreamed of! Their music got everyone on the dance floor, even my Nan had a dance! Paul was easy to communicate with prior to the wedding and the band were professional throughout.
Richard and Rudi Lewis, Ox Pasture Country House Hotel, Scarborough, 9th April 2016
The band were fantastic, really friendly guys, great music, great style, really made the evening. Highly recommended!
Alison Whalley, WMBRC, Bowness on Windermere, 2nd April 2016
I booked The Firebirds for my birthday party having seen their website and loved their sound. They were amazing - so much better than I'd hoped! The sets were varied enough to keep all guests happy and Helen sang a brilliant version of Moon River for me. I can't recommend them highly enough - book them!!! Thank you to the whole band - you made my evening even more special!
Will Dashwood, The Crook Barn, Barnsley, 13th Feb 2016
Wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday night. We had a fantastic evening and everyone commented on how good you guys were. It was all we hoped for and more.
Angela Thompson, Titanic Hotel, Liverpool, 30th January 2016
We booked The Firebirds for our wedding in Liverpool. They were amazing and very professional. The guests loved them and so did we. Would highly recommend.
Catherine Knockles, The Hall at Marhall, Knutsford, 12th September 2015
5/5 Fabulous band and really professional to deal with. Would highly recommend.
Ian Morrison, The Priory Home Farm, Wetherby, 22nd August 2015
Just an email to say a MASSIVE thank you to the Band, for playing at our Wedding Reception at The Priory on Saturday. You guys were exactly as we had hoped and, on behalf of Emma and I, thank you for helping to give us such a special day. The musical style, along with the attention to detail, was brilliant and we received many positive comments about your performance on the evening. When we spoke on the night I recall you referring to yourself as an “anti-Wedding band” – safe to say I think you’ve cornered this market and everyone was impressed by the uniqueness of what they saw and heard. Also thanks you for providing the other music during the evening – again, think it’s safe to say it went down a storm! The communication, and ease of arrangements from yourself, made it all very stress free – which was very much appreciated.
Corporate Golf Day Event, Mere Golf Resort, Cheshire, 2nd July 2015
Please say a big thanks to The Firebirds, they were fab! Yes unfortunately the poor weather late pm meant that play was held up so their outside set got mostly overlooked, but they were absolutely spot on during dinner, had lots of good comments about them & they gave the evening a nice buzz.
Phillip Grundy, Blood Bikes Cumbria Charity Performance, Keswick Theatre By The Lake, 20th March 2015
Blood Bikes Cumbria hired The Firebirds for a charity concert at the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick. Heard them on an agents website and had a gut feeling about them. Superb gig, great bunch of lads and a brilliant night had by all. Highly recommended them.
Marion Ward, Keswick Theatre By The Lake, Charity performance, 20th March 2015
We had a fabulous time jigging along to all those favourite songs performed brilliantly in an exciting way by fabulous musicians. Thanks all for a great night.
Jade Étienne Coulthard, Keswick Theatre By The Lake, Charity performance, 20th March 2015
Hey guys, Just thought I'd let you know I came to see your set in Keswick at Theatre by the Lake last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You have a really unique sound and are all very talented! I live in Huddersfield so I will be looking out for any time you are playing in Manchester. Have you ever thought of doing your own version of Pink Floyd- Money or Louis Armstrong- St James Infirmary?
Jenny and Jenny Robley, Keswick Theatre By The Lake, Charity performance, 20th March 2015
Saw you tonight at Keswick. We thought you were amazing. We'd love to be able to buy a CD of your music. I've looked at your website and can't see anything on there.... Do you have any for sale? Thank you for a great evening
Phil and Catherine Williams, Quarry Bank Mill, Styal, 14th March 2015
The Firebirds arrive with the minimum of fuss and set up whilst you're doing your thing. You don't even notice them. Then when the set starts, they light up the dancefloor for people of all ages and fill the room with musical excellence. Even the most stubborn of guests can't fail to find their dancing shoes and get right amongst it with them. You made our wedding extra special and I would not hesitate to urge you to book this band. They are phenomenal and allow you to dictate their setlist. Just perfect.
Jessica Hookway, Linthwait House Hotel, Windermere, 8th March 2015
5/5: We booked The Firebirds after hours of research for the perfect band for our wedding and if we were to do it over again would not hesitate to make that same decision. We had a small wedding of just under 60 guests of all different ages and were after something that everybody would enjoy so it would be a night to remember. That was exactly what we got. One of my fondest memories will be dancing with my dad until the early hours, and he never dances! The kids were also pirouetting around the guests until it was way past bedtime! The band knew exactly what to play and everybody said how great the band was. Organised, on time, great set up, great feel and just really nice relaxed guys. Thank you so much for being such a big part of making our day even more memorable!
