booked The MBB Band for their Wedding in Nottinghamshire December 2023

“MBB were absolute stars at our wedding reception. They were courteous when we were a few minutes late arriving, played a personalised intro, and 2 sets of amazing music that got the guests dancing and mingling. It was worth every penny, and beats a DJ any day of the week! As professional musicians ourselves it was important to us to fill our day with high-quality music: MBB did not disappoint!”

Absolutely brilliant and better than we could have imagined!

booked The MBB Band for their Wedding September 2023

“John and I just wanted to thank the band for playing for our wedding on 30/9/23 at Combermere Abbey. You were absolutely brilliant and better than we could have imagined! So many people commented about how great it was, inparticular how good "Creep" was! I know you won't believe but John and I have been together for 11 years and I have never seen him on a dancefloor- hence the hesitancy about the first dance. However, with you playing- I couldn't get him off it!!!! Please pass my thanks on to all the band. Hannah x”

Literally cannot recommend this band enough!

booked The MBB Band for their Wedding September 2023

“Literally cannot recommend this band enough! They were absolutely brilliant at our wedding (the videos don't do them justice!) and the range of songs was fab! So many guests at our wedding commented about how good they were and everyone was on the dancefloor, irrespective of how much they thought they liked Big Band music. From an admin point of view, Chris was really helpful and responsive and it was a really easy process. I would 100% recommend anyone else to book them for any event you are planning”

everything landed perfectly.

“Hi Chris, Thank you for getting in touch, we are so glad you all enjoyed the gig, as we mentioned on the day we are both musicians so it was important to us that you were able to enjoy yourselves as that always leads to better performances. We can say with absolute certainty that everyone enjoyed your performance in the evening, from set list to musical execution to crowd work, everything landed perfectly. I’ll be in touch hopefully in the next week with photos for you. Kind regards, Rhys”

Thanks again for being amazing

“Hey Chris, So nice to hear from you! We had a delicious month recovering in Italy and we really do have just the best memories of our wedding day and especially the evening with your incredible music. We are really excited as I think we are getting our wedding video in the next couple of weeks, so that will be amazing to bring it all back and hopefully it will include some of your music! Thanks again for being amazing, and I will send you our wedding video when that comes through in the next couple of weeks! Best wishes, Josie & Josh”
