Amazing. We were given Daves number to discuss our requirements. He was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. As the date approached he contacted me to confirm things. I gave him a play list. I didn’t expect that everything on the list would be possible. But he assured me it was all fine. With only a few days to go I asked about a very obscure song that meant a lot to our family. Again I didn’t think it was possible. On the day they performed all our songs. Some of which they hadn’t done before. They learned the last minute song. The performance was fantastic. I would recommend you say we play to everyone. I will definitely book them again. They made the day perfect and memorable. Thank you. Xxx

Hilton Hotel (St Helens) - May 2017 We wanted a band for our wedding back in May and was highly recommended You Say We Play. From the beginning Dave was the complete professional. he talked us through what he could offer, 2 piece, 3 piece, 4 piece band, what ever we wanted. We decided to go with a three piece band. We were not disappointed the sound from only a three piece band was amazing. I gave dave complete control of the songs he would sing which complemented the range of age of people at the wedding.  I lost count of the people who were blown away with the  band. I would whole heartedly recommend Dave and his band and promise, you won't be dissappointed with your special occasion. ​
