Great fun and a lovely experience

5 stars - The Footstomping Trads are Highly Recommended booked The Footstomping Trads for their Wedding in London

“We booked the band for our wedding reception. They did exactly what we'd hoped for, they created a great atmosphere and fitted in perfectly with the theme of the day. We didn't really have to brief them much, they found the area and just got on with it- which was perfect as we were busy celebrating! The guests commented that they really enjoyed how responsive the band were to the people that eventually started dancing, they felt that the band were really paying attention to what people enjoyed most. They were also lovely, friendly people! So, highly recommended.”

“Can I just say the whole experience from choosing, booking and enjoying the band was an extremely positive experience. The band were brilliant, polite, punctual and great music.  They communicated well beforehand so I felt entirely confident in them understanding what we wanted. They were great musicians and we would definitely like to book them again one day.  I would absolutely recommend them to friends with no hesitation. So I would give ten out of ten for both Alive Network and for The Footstomping Trads.”
