Last minute saviours! What a band!

5 stars - The Long Straws are Highly Recommended
booked The Long Straws for their Wedding in East Sussex August 2021

“What a cracker of a find! After having to change dates and bands 3 times, we were worried we wouldn't be able to find a band that would suit us so close to the wedding. We were so wrong, 'The long Straws' absolutely smashed it out the park! The communication before the day was fantastic and made me feel at ease straight away. They arrived with plenty of time to set up and had time for a lovely chat to go through everything for the evening. Then they got on stage and filled the dance floor. Absolutely amazing vocals and a very talented band indeed. They'd even learnt a song for my dad to sing to me, a very very special moment. Thank you so much to 'The Long Straws' for making our long awaited wedding a day to remember! x”

“Can’t recommend these guys enough. With a heavily musical crowd (including professional musicians) we knew we had to get this part of our wedding right, and thanks to the Long Straws everyone walked away happy. We took the risk to go in blind with the band’s own version of a classic for our first dance, and we are so glad we did! It was perfect. The band were incredible. Very professional, full of personality and totally lovable! Everyone at the wedding raved about them. We didn’t have that many evening guests, but they still managed to fill the dance floor. We were dubious about getting a band at first, due to the cost and having to book without seeing them play live. However, booking the Long Straws was one of the best decisions we made. We hope to see them play again.”


Such an amazing band! Great music and lovely guys.

booked The Long Straws for their Wedding in Essex

“Couldn't recommend this band more for a wedding! Music to appeal to all ages, and with a fun lively twist that had everyone dancing. The three sets were all slightly different. By the final set, they had everyone jumping in the air! Good communication from beginning to end, couldnt ask for more. So many people commented how good they were... Just amazing!!”

“The band were brilliant. Professional, polite and highly talented, they definitely helped make our wedding at the Party Field in Lewes an incredible event. They had a stand in front man as the lead singer was unwell, but you wouldn’t have noticed. They got everyone up and jumping, great selection of songs and their own spin on some classics makes them really stand out. I can’t recommend highly enough”


Brilliant! We had a great time!

booked The Long Straws for their Wedding in Suffolk

“The Band were so friendly and professional. The whole wedding party spent all evening on the dance floor as soon as they started playing - the atmosphere was genuinely more than we could have ever hoped for! We had so many compliments about the music throughout the evening and into the next day - and so many guests asked if we knew them or how we had found them! They made our day even more special and we cannot thank them enough! We hope they enjoyed our wedding crowd!!”

booked The Long Straws for their Wedding in Devon

“Whatever I write in the review simply won't do The Long Straws justice. Mike and the boys are a hugely talented bunch of musicians with an amazing set list, something for every generation. Their funky take on old classics breathed life into everything they played. Their energy and passion for music was clearly evident as the dance floor was never empty. Our guests demanded an encore and would have held them hostage if they could. We simply can't recommend The Long Straws highly enough. Thank you for helping to make our wedding such a truly memorable experience.”
