Incredible band - incredible music - incredible experience!

5 stars - The Long Straws are Highly Recommended booked The Long Straws for their Wedding in West Sussex

“The Long Straws were absolutely incredible! They had such fun and positive attitudes and nothing was too much to ask. They even learnt our first dance song for us making it even more special than we could have ever imagined! Thank you so much guys!! Absolutely amazing music and everyone was raving about how good you guys were. 110% awesome!”


The perfect wedding band! What a night.

5 stars - The Long Straws are Highly Recommended booked The Long Straws for their Wedding in West Sussex

“Can’t recommend these guys enough. With a heavily musical crowd (including professional musicians) we knew we had to get this part of our wedding right, and thanks to the Long Straws everyone walked away happy. We took the risk to go in blind with the band’s own version of a classic for our first dance, and we are so glad we did! It was perfect. The band were incredible. Very professional, full of personality and totally lovable! Everyone at the wedding raved about them. We didn’t have that many evening guests, but they still managed to fill the dance floor. We were dubious about getting a band at first, due to the cost and having to book without seeing them play live. However, booking the Long Straws was one of the best decisions we made. We hope to see them play again.”


Such an amazing band! Great music and lovely guys.

“The Long Straws made the evening so special. They got everyone dancing, from all ages. It was great to see my grandparents swing dancing! Mike from the band was also extremely helpful and easy to contact leading up to the event. I’d highly recommend this band!”


Words don’t do this band justice.

5 stars - The Long Straws are Highly Recommended booked The Long Straws for their Wedding in Essex

“Couldn't recommend this band more for a wedding! Music to appeal to all ages, and with a fun lively twist that had everyone dancing. The three sets were all slightly different. By the final set, they had everyone jumping in the air! Good communication from beginning to end, couldnt ask for more. So many people commented how good they were... Just amazing!!”
