Had the Dance floor full from start to finish!

5 stars - The Standbys are Highly Recommended
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.”

Fantastic band! Brought our reception alive

5 stars - The Standbys are Highly Recommended
booked The Standbys for their Wedding in East Sussex

“The Standbys played our wedding a few weeks ago and were brilliant! The dancefloor was full for both their sets and our guests loved them! Communication was great in the build up and the guys were able to incorporate some of our guests’ requests into their set and playlists. On the day, they were friendly and helpful, arrived and set up as agreed, and packed down quickly after the final set. Thank you all for entertaining our guests so well and giving us the fun, and relaxed, evening we had hoped for!”
