“From start to finish these guys were professional, patient and most importantly bloody good! I have had nothing but compliments on the choice of band and their performance on the night. They are super accommodating, and nothing is too much trouble. The kit is state of the art and what you would expect from a band of this calibre. Cheers lads. ”

Cornwall Foundation Trust Staff CARE Awards 2019

5 stars - The Sparks are Highly Recommended
booked The Sparks for their event in Cornwall

“This was the third awards show that we have booked The Sparks for and as usual they did no disappoint. We have a diverse staff age range and The Sparks are able to energise them all including our Board of Directors. They gt everyone up on the dance floor and I receive nothing but rave reviews of them. In addition they are charming and accommodating young men who sit and talk with our guests prior to the performance.”

Great wedding evening from The Sparks!

5 stars - The Sparks are Highly Recommended
booked The Sparks for their Wedding in Dorset

“They arrived nice and early and set up in the background without any issues. They even played some music for the children before they were due to play. They were ready to play our first dance song followed by playing their first live set (unfortunately they didn't play the first live song that we requested, but nobody else knew about it so was not a problem). The atmosphere was great and the dance floor was always busy. Guests have commented that they were really good and was nice to have a band rather than just a DJ.”
