Can't recommend these guys enough! In the run up to the wedding communication was fab and we were really impressed with their set list. Due to covid we couldn't go and see the band live, so we were going off their videos which, as good as they are, still don't do them justice! They had everyone dancing throughout the night, their energy and song choices were spot on! We have had so many people message us to say how good they were and how much they enjoyed them. Thanks guys, you really made our wedding party!! Xx

The Beat Pilots played at our wedding on Saturday and we were so glad to have them as part of our day. From start to finish Nic was really good at communicating not just with us but with our venue (who had quite specific noise regulations etc.). Their set was brilliant and they worked around us being dozy (taking ages with speeches and food as always happens at weddings ) and changing the timings of their sets on the day. Would highly recommend if you want a wedding band who are a little bit different, play cracking tunes that get the dance floor going and are a really sound bunch of dudes
