We booked late last night for our wedding in November of this year. And all I can say is wow! They were absolutely brilliant. A lot of our guests after the wedding commented how good they were. Nothing was too much trouble and they quickly got the rowdy crowd going to great effect. They have a great song list to choose from across multiple genres and will tweak their set list to accompany your needs. We saw them live at the peaky blinders bar in Manchester and wine bar in disley beforehand and decided they were the band for us after viewing and listening to a number of others. Picking LLN was certainly the best decision we made for our wedding and I would recommend them to anyone considering them not just for a wedding but for any similar social event. Hope to catch the guys again in the future. Thanks again for your input into making our wedding day a great one. Lucy and Luke.

Late Last Night performed at our wedding in July and they were fantastic. Prior to our wedding they dealt professionally and quickly with rapidly changing rules and delays due to covid restrictions. They provided lists of songs for us to choose from but were also happy to learn any alternatives. From our selections they put together two awesome sets. Everyone loved them and so many of our guests commented on how good they were during the night and after. They are a great band and a lovely bunch of people, we highly recommend them!
