We loved The Child! What a performance

5 stars - The Child are Highly Recommended
booked The Child for their Wedding in Cambridgeshire September 2021

“Can highly recommend The Child. On the night of our wedding they were absolutely fantastic and we had so many compliments on how amazing they were. Unfortunately Nick could not sing for us but after sending a few replacements we chose Jake - and what a performance from him and the rest of the band. We danced all night and could have partied for hours more! So nice to be able to select our own set list too. Amazing band- thank you”

Fantastic band that made our Big day

5 stars - The Child are Highly Recommended
booked The Child for their Wedding in Leicestershire August 2021

“'The Child' were a fantastic wedding band. They played an amazing set and their rendition of our first dance song moved me to tears. Communication with Nick was great throughout, and the band were flexible and supportive when we had to move our wedding due to Covid. Fantastic!!!”

Amazing band! What a show! Highly recommend.

5 stars - The Child are Highly Recommended
booked The Child for their Wedding in Surrey July 2021

“The Child were very easy to work with with great communication and took a lot of weight of our shoulders with their extras (like the first dance song and dj set). Their performance and delivery was incredible. All of our guests keep saying how great they were. What a party!!”

Absolutely Brilliant - they played for our wedding.

5 stars - The Child are Highly Recommended
booked The Child for their Wedding in Surrey July 2021

“The band were amazing. The main singer Nick was not available for our date and Magdy there back up stepped in. Initially I was a little apprehensive about this. I have no need to be though. The band were amazing and were flexible with when to play the second set. The DJ mix was also great. I only wish the evening hadn't gone so fast!!”

'The Child' are a truly fantastic and very talented band

5 stars - The Child are Highly Recommended
booked The Child for their Wedding in Oxfordshire

“Booked this Band for our wedding in Oxfordshire and I can't praise them enough for their musical contribution to the day. They were totally professional, extremely talented and were, without doubt, the 'icing on the cake' for our celebrations. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending The Child wedding band if you have such an occasion coming up. Thank you Nick (from The Child) for making our day so special.”

"Just a quick note to let you know quite how good this band are! They made the evening. Seriously!! Every cover that they did sounded EXACTLY like the real version; the Killers the Strokes etc and they turned our dancefloor into a scene from a festival. Everyone who was there commented that they were extra special and can't believe that they are a wedding band available to hire. Thanks to Alive Network & The Child for making this possible."
- Charlie and Vicky Mansour
