booked The Marlins for their Wedding in Lincolnshire August 2022

“We couldn’t have asked for a better band, they literally made our night from start to finish!! They did the best cover of our first dance song, they absolutely smashed it! Olly in particular was so lovely and a real pleasure to deal with. They really were outstanding, we absolutely loved them and so did our guests. Thank you so much Olly, Isaac & Tom you really made our evening a night to remember!! :)”


5 stars - The Marlins are Highly Recommended
booked The Marlins for their Wedding in North Yorkshire August 2022

“Great band. Everyone commented on how friendly and helpful they were, we really appreciated their cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit as well as the Game of Thrones theme tune on acoustic earlier in the day. Oliver was friendly and great in all comms before the day. If you’re considering The Marlins don’t hesitate and just book them! Their videos and audio clips don’t do them justice.”
