I hired The Cheers for my wedding and they were absolutely fantastic. Not only were they incredible on the day, with so much energy, exceptional performances, and friendly vibes, but they were so flexible and practical leading up to the wedding. I really appreciated how approachable and communicative Ben, the Band Manager, was and how he made me feel that we could figure out some of the practicalities as the wedding plans chopped and changed. A superb band, well organised, professional and got everyone on the dance floor every minute they performed. I would recommend to everyone and will be using The Cheers again, no doubt.

Excellent communication throughout, arrived on time and set up quietly during dinner in a not particularly large marquee, in the middle of nowhere. Friendly and of course an excellent band, playing upbeat songs and a varied set. We have heard a lot from our guests that they thought they were great. The dancefloor was never empty!
