booked The Dukes for their event in Hampshire December 2023

“Absolutely brilliant- people were saying on the night and after how good the Dukes were. We can be a bit raucous when all together being a big forestry company and the lads were great they fitted in a treat and made the evening so much fun. Thank you very much”

5 stars - The Dukes are Highly Recommended
booked The Dukes for their event in London November 2023

“Pre-party comms with Sam were excellent and he was very accommodating of our requests. The main brief was to get everyone dancing all night for our joint 50th party, and they most certainly achieved that! Everyone in the band was fantastic and all our guests commented on how good the band was. It really made the night one to remember for us and I could not recommend them highly enough... AWESOME!”

Absolutely awesome! Could not recommend highly enough

5 stars - The Dukes are Highly Recommended
booked The Dukes for their Wedding in London September 2023

“Every step of booking The Dukes was clear and easy. We really appreciated Marc from Alive Network checking in with us regularly and Leo from the band could not have been more helpful in finalising the details or handling our requests for how we wanted things to go on our wedding day. On the day the band were absolutely awesome, they got everybody up and dancing, they are so talented and I can’t thank them enough for helping to make our day so special. Live music is really important to me and my husband so we booked a band to ensure that our wedding day reflected such a big passion of ours, but The Dukes massively surpassed our expectations and truly added to our wedding day being the best day of our lives. Thank you! Would strongly recommend.”
