Incredible band that created a great atmosphere

5 stars - The King Bees are Highly Recommended booked The King Bees for their Wedding in Derbyshire

“The King Bees we're perfect for our wedding and helped make the evening really fun. All our guests told us how great they were and the dance floor was full from start to finish. The band were friendly, flexible and helpful (and even found my wedding ring which got lost during our first dance!) We couldn't have asked for any more from them and would definitely book them again for any sort of event.”


A fantastic addition to our wedding celebrations

5 stars - The King Bees are Highly Recommended booked The King Bees for their Wedding in North Yorkshire

“We booked The King Bees as our wedding entertainment between the food and before our evening guests arrived to get the party started. And they definitely did that! Everyone was up and dancing and many of our guests commented on what a great band they were. We couldn’t agree more! They managed to set up before we arrived at the reception venue and packed up afterwards quickly and efficiently. Many thanks to The King Bees!”

5 stars - The King Bees are Highly Recommended booked The King Bees for their Wedding at Northorpe Hall in West Yorkshire

“The King Bees were absolutely superb! All our guests told us so. Their appeal is universal and had folk on the dance floor from 4yrs to 84yrs. The set list was a great mix from early rock n roll through punk/new wave to Taylor Swift all delivered in sublime skiffle/rockabilly style (perfect match for the bride's 50's inspired dress). We could not have made a better choice.”
