Our wedding took place in Faversham, Kent. The band came very highly recommended to us as a great venue band and at no point did they disappoint. The band played all music to a very high standard and catered to everyone’s taste with a wide variety of songs spanning many decades. They were very professional in everything they did from start to finish this added to how smooth our special day went. I would 100% book this band again for any occasion not just a wedding. Thanks to you all for finishing a special day on a high.

The Five Dollar Shakes were the perfect addition to our party. They were professional, polite and most importantly a great live band - we had countless positive comments from guests saying how much they had enjoyed the music. I would definitely recommend them very highly.

I've performed more times with Ben than any other musician, so believe me when I say he's a highly skilled bass player, singer, guitarist and all round musician (if he wasn't I wouldn't keep coming back!). More importantly he can engage an audience, and has a great professional attitude to go along with it. What more could you want!?
