The Up and Up Band were fantastic at our event. We didn't have as many people there as we hoped but we still had a packed dance floor which speaks for itself. All lovely people in the band who I was in contact with about the event many times beforehand. Really recommend.

I was at the function you performed at on Saturday night and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about how good the band is. I looked into live music for a function a couple of years ago and didn’t see anything to come close to your band.It was a pleasure watching you, my wife and I agree it’s one of the best functions we`ve been to and we definitely haven’t seen a better more contemporary band in our lives.

Andy, 2017 years ago

Hi Jon, Just wanted to say a massive thanks to you guys for the music at the party. It was amazing! I had sooo many positve comments about you guys! You sounded awesome. Its always a bit of a worry when you book someone without seeing them but I couldn't be happier. So glad we went for the acoustic set outside as well. I think it made the day. Thanks again
