Could not have asked for a better band!

5 stars - The Standbys are Highly Recommended
booked The Standbys for their Wedding in Hampshire March 2022

“The Standbys performed at our wedding on 5th March 2022. They were amazing from start to end! Really judged the crowd well to pick the best songs. We had a stage for them to perform on which worked great and the lead singer kept coming into the crowd to sing and dance with us which everyone loved! The best man's girlfriend got to jump up on stage to sing which was a highlight of the day. They not only played our first dance but even did another song we asked for just in the DJ set but they sang it live for free! Incredible! So glad we went for them!”

Totally amazing band! Loved them!

booked The Standbys for their event in Surrey August 2021

“We booked 'The Standbys' to perform at a 50th birthday party in a pub garden last weekend. We were so glad that we’d booked them. The guests loved them and were up and dancing and singing by the end (even though it was an afternoon party!) Their playlist was great, and they were so easy to deal with both ahead of the booking on the day. A really lovely and talent band who I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending and rebooking again.”

40th Birthday Garden Festival

booked The Standbys for their event in East Sussex August 2021

“The boys came to do my sisters garden festival party and they were brilliant. Would highly recommend them for a function. Played oldies and current tunes. Who doesn’t love a live band. They were so nice and kept the tunes going.”

Bloody amazing- book them for your wedding!

booked The Standbys for their Wedding in Hertfordshire July 2021

“We booked these guys for our wedding on 24th July. Communication from Ed in the build up was great- they took on board our requests for certain songs in their set to be played earlier and were welcome to specific songs to be included in the DJ set. When they arrived on the day they were really friendly, polite guys. The music was AWESOME. They created a great atmosphere, brilliant repertoire of songs and sounded even better than on their videos. The dance floor was packed from start to finish, and they even did an encore (even though people still wanted more). They also learnt and played our first dance song. The biggest compliment I can give is that after the wedding we had 3 different people ask us about booking them for their own weddings. Long story short these guys will make your wedding day bloody amazing so book them!”

Had the Dance floor full from start to finish!

booked The Standbys for their Wedding in Berkshire

“The Standbys performaed at our wedding on Saturday 7th September at Stanlake Park and were superb. They were flexible with their timings to work around other things, and responsive and accommodating of our requests. They had the dance floor full from start to finish, judged the crowd perfectly and had everyone left wanting more. They ensured we had the party atmosphere we really wanted to celebrate the end of our wedding day with a bang. We have had loads of comments from guests about how good the band were and we'd thoroughly recommend these guys.”
