Nick was excellent at communicating from the very start. He was great at honing in on the tracks we would like and even learnt a new song at our request, doing an excellent rendition! The party crowd of mixed ages were happy and had lots of great compliments about his performance! Would highly recommend Nick.

Nick was excellent from start to finish. Meticulous preparation, communication beforehand and very accommodating on the day. Great performer for any age group and would highly recommend. Thankyou

We recently hired "the word" for our wedding in Twickenham. Many of the people we contacted were slow to get back to us and some did not bother at all. I'm glad to say that the communication from Nick was excellent from the very first point of contact, and he never failed to keep me up to date with any ideas or new developments. On the big day "the word" were punctual, professional and well organised. That just leaves the music, it was brilliant! The band also performed a number for our first dance that was outside their usual repotoire which really added to the occasion. I would highly recommend the word for any gig or function, they are a class act! Steve & Katy Whalley

I just want to thank you and all the band for making our joint 18th and 50th birthday party such a brilliant success. We had 17 to 86 year olds and I can honestly say you had them all up dancing. The Word's performance brought them all together - it was quite incredible. The playlist you put together was perfect for the night. And the kids really appreciated mixing with the band in between sets. In my son's words - "it was the best night I've ever had" and, as for me, I can't wait to have the next party and book you again. Thanks again for your professionalism and such an electric performance.
