Amazing! Hands down made our wedding the best night ever!

5 stars - The Kicks are Highly Recommended
booked The Kicks for their Wedding in Hertfordshire October 2021

“The Kicks were excellent! They had everyone on the dance floor and they played all of the songs we wanted to hear. Our guests were all commenting on how great they were. They also learnt our first dance song and played it perfectly.”

The band gave our wedding a vibrant atmosphere, and every single person thought ...

5 stars - The Kicks are Highly Recommended
booked The Kicks for their Wedding in Cornwall September 2021

“...And we did too. The band as a group were just a lovely bunch of lads and they were very easy to speak to before and after the event. Their communication was first class and because of that there was no stress on the day as everything had been organised beforehand. They learned a new song for our first dance and we thoroughly enjoyed their rendition of our song. Their performance got so many people up on the dance floor and not only that, they STAYED on the dance floor, and that speaks volumes. For their Teenage Dirtbag song they added a little flair of comedy and it brought laughter to the people close enough to see it. My husband and I could not have been happier. People were constantly saying how good they were and we agree completely. Well worth the booking fee.”

Awesome live music and great group of guys

5 stars - The Kicks are Highly Recommended
booked The Kicks for their Wedding in Norfolk September 2021

“The Kicks far exceeded our expectations! The video examples on the website don’t do them justice. They learnt our first dance song, which they nailed. They created a great atmosphere, which meant non-stop dancing from start to finish. They are also really lovely, friendly guys, who chatted with our guests and even got involved in the face glitter. Would most definitely book them again!”

Absolutely Brilliant! Great wedding band!

" The Kicks rocked our Wedding! – We were chuffed to bit at how great they sounded looked and performed on the night. The feedback from our guests was incredible and it felt that the band enjoyed being there and it wasn’t ‘just another wedding gig’. If you’re looking for a wedding band that will give you that cheese free credible feel without isolating any of your guests these are the boys for you!” - Paul, Wedding Client

“A lively and enthusiastic group who have immense talent for entertaining a crowd true performers!" - Tracie Belcher Manager Hall & Woodhouse.

“Alive Network's service was impeccable. As for the Kicks awesome. I am getting bored with the number of people who ask me for their details. To quote one of my wife's friends... "when they played "sex on fire" (twice) they were better than Kings of Leon". A brilliant band who made the wedding a serious cut above the usual 4 blokes a drumset and a couple of guitars. To top it all they were also extremely friendly helpful professional and committed to ensuring that every guest had a great night.” -Andrew and Lucy Wedding Client
