The Princes’ were superb

5 stars - The Princes are Highly Recommended booked for their event in Cambridgeshire

“The Princes’ were superb. They were very polite and friendly on site, got set up and sound tested with no fuss and then proceeded to play three sets. Guests were really getting into it on the last one and the band kept playing through for another 30 minutes after they were contracted to finish, because the guests were enjoying it so much. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you for all your help with the booking; it was very last minute but you got it all sorted with no issues.”


It's a 10 all round from us

5 stars - The Princes are Highly Recommended booked for their event in Staffordshire

“The guys were brilliant in every way and my niece wants them for her 10th birthday party as long as she can play the drum with them again! ”


The Princes absolutely nailed it

5 stars - The Princes are Highly Recommended booked for their Wedding at Taitlands in North Yorkshire

“We booked the Princes for our Wedding. Both of us are professional musicians, and many of the people attending make a living out of music, so the band choice was tough for us! However, the Princes absolutely nailed it - really fun and different, well performed and a great compliment to the more ‘standard' wedding music that we put on between their sets. They did an acoustic set in a tipi surrounded by dancing toddlers, then later 2 sets mic’ed up for the tipsy adults. They ended up playing longer than we agreed because everyone was enjoying it, them included.”


I highly recommend them if you want something different, yet very easy to enjoy.

5 stars - The Princes are Highly Recommended booked for their event at Libidex Ltd in London

“We really enjoyed having the Princes at our event . They were prompt and professional whilst also being relaxed and flexible! I highly recommend them if you want something different, yet very easy to enjoy. The variety of music was surprising and they even did medieval versions of David Bowie which was fantastic.”
