Can I give more than five stars?? Wow Rob and the guys were amazing! They were seamless and really played a fantastic set. I love how their first set got one part of my wedding guests rocking and the second set got the whole world rocking...well it felt like that anyway. They did an amazing Purple Rain for me, now being a big Prince fan I know it is not easy to take on one of his songs but, wow!!! I got a tear or two. Totally smashed it after that and the lights and smoke machine were outstanding. I didn't want them to stop. Please, if you are going to book these guys, can I get an invite?

Capital Party were incredible! They really did make our night. They interacted with our guests and got everyone up dancing. We have had such great feedback from all of our guests to say how good they were. We’re now hoping to go to one of their public shows so we can see them again!
