“Thank you and your band for your brilliant contribution to my party on Saturday”

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their Private Party in Essex on 22nd September 2018

Nigel and I just wanted to thank you and your band for your brilliant contribution to my party on Saturday evening and for persevering even though you were obviously feeling unwell. You’ve had so many compliments from our guests I can’t begin to tell you. My 89 year old mum said yesterday she could have listened to you all night. We all had a fabulous time. Thank you once again and hope to see you in action again one day soon. Carol Franklin

“If you're looking for an amazing band, look no further. You've found them.”

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their event in Essex on 27th May 2016

I would just like to say that Sophie and the Exciters are the best band ever for a wedding or a party. You couldn't ask for a better band. Sophie's voice is amazing. Our first dance was At Last by Etta James and it was simply beautiful. She has a very powerful and emotive voice and is such an amazing performer. She came onto the dance floor a lot and sang to people including my 6 year old godson who was so excited. The other musicians were quite frankly the best I and my guests (as many came to tell me) had ever seen at a wedding. The guitarist in particular was outstanding. All the band really know how to get a party going as the energy they poured out into us got everyone, and I do mean everyone including my 94 year-old grandmother who was doing the jive, on the dance floor. We had been worried as half of the guests were French and that they would stay on the sidelines and watch instead of dance. However, I have never seen them go for it on the dancing front and it's all thanks to Sophie and the band for giving such a great vibe. So many guests came to tell me that they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen (and some of these people have been to quite a few weddings almost 5 a year in recent years) and said how much they loved the band. They put in the extra mile and for that we are truly grateful. If you're looking for an amazing band, look no further. You've found them.

“Sophie and the Exciters were absolutely brilliant.”

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their Wedding in West Midlands on 12th May 2015

Sophie and the Exciters were absolutely brilliant. The music was spot on, just what we were looking for, and everyone had a great time. Loads of people were telling us how good you were, and I know one or two even asked for your details so we will be sure to pass those on to them! We and everyone there also loved the first dance, so thank you for learning that for us too! I spent a lot of time (and stress!) looking for a band because I was so concerned that everyone should have a good night, but I didn't need to worry. The band were awesome, played exactly the right music throughout the night, and everyone was dancing right until the end of the evening. They even learnt our first dance when we requested it, and we loved it. Everyone commented after on how good they were, and some people even asked for their details. Sophie was an excellent front-woman, full of energy when she was performing, and very lovely and polite when not on stage. I'd definitely book them again, and recommend them to everyone.

“We would recommend to anyone.”

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their Wedding at The Reid Rooms in Essex on 22nd August 2014

Sophie and the Exciters were a great hit with our guests and we received a lot of positive feedback on their performance. We selected a playlist for the band and the choices we made were just right for our audience, encouraging people to get up and dance. It is a little daunting booking a band you have never heard play live as you are never quite sure what you are going to get; I can honestly say that Sophie and the band met our expectations (and they are quite high) and delivered a good evening’s entertainment. Not only did they sound excellent but Sophie also brought personality to her performance. We would recommend to anyone.

“True professionals!”

booked Sophie and the Exciters for their Wedding in Gloucestershire on 25th July 2014

I truly loved Sophie and the Exciters. Great song choices, fabulous performances from all band members and Sophie has a stunning voice! Furthermore, her gregarious nature made her a great addition to our guests during the set breaks. True professionals! I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. In fact, I will make sure I do! Should I have any occasion to, I would definitely hire them again. Much love to Sophie and the Exciters, I'm your biggest fan!!!!

booked Sophie and the Exciters  for their event on 23rd April 2012

Great gig, thank you so much. I chose well! Your energy was soaked up by us all at my 50th party and culminated in a fantastic feel good finale on the dance floor. ‘One more song’ was the call from my nephew and all of us would have savoured more time, but we ended on a high and that’s all I could ask for. I’ve had great feedback on you, and obviously will see if you are available for any future family events! Paul

booked Sophie and the Exciters  for their event on 10th July 2011

We would like to say a big THANK YOU for the excellent music and service provided by Sophie and the Exciters. Especially thank you for letting us customise your set. The booking was easy, the music was exceptional and the band were professional and easy to work with. We had an overall brilliant day, and I think having the music all night from 6pm until the end was a key part of that. Thanks for doing such a long set for us.

booked Sophie and the Exciters  for their event on 7th July 2010

After not having much luck finding the perfect band for our wedding, we came across Alive Network. They were so incredibly helpful in suggesting some bands and one fit the bill perfectly (Sophie and the Exciters). Despite initial doubts about using an agency, their recommendations and the comments about the band convinced us it was worth the money. Alive Network's communication and help prior to the wedding was absolutely fautless and soon put our mind to rest about the booking. Chatting to Sophie (Sophie and the Exciters lead singer) in the run up to the big day, made me so excited to hear them play, she knew exactly what we were after. Hearing them on the night was better than anything we could have imagined, it was like a very intimate concert and by the end of the night, every person was on the dance floor; we did not leave it all night!

Both Alive Network and Sophie and the Exciters are true professionals. They were all helpful and friendly at every step of the way. When organising a wedding, you don't want anything to go wrong and you don't want to have to worry about anything on the day. Everyone involved made this possible. The band were amazing, knew exactly how to pitch the mood to the crowd and are just thoroughly nice people, which is incredibly important. I cannot effuse enough. Thank you so much.

Sophie and the Exciters - NOT YOUR AVERAGE WEDDING BAND! They were terrific! My husband and I were blown away - along with friends and family we danced like lunatics all night. They are SO better live than on the audio snippets from the website - Sophie breathes new life into old classics and makes them her own. She was so warm and friendly and still professional. After a bad experience with another booking service, Alive Network were really great to deal with. 10 out of 10!
