I loved everything about You Say We Play. They helped us celebrate our wedding, with good cheer and great music. I loved that they managed to cover some of my favourite tracks, learning them especially, and their interaction with our guests was second to none. After a few drinks our guests were keen to grab the mic and sing. You Say We Play accommodated this, really well. Thanks to you both for a night we'll remember! David & Rebecca

Dear Dave, Craig and friends, Thank you so much for playing at my party last night - you were all so amazing, and it really made my evening special. You also had many compliments from my party guests, including “ now that’s a proper band”- high praise indeed from a Yorkshire man! Wishing you all the very best, Love, Amanda xx Sent from my iPhone

I cannot recommend these guys enough! We had asked them to do a Bandeoke style set and get our attendees up on stage to sing with them and they brought the whole set up; large screen to read lyrics off of, request forms, took requests and encouraged attendees all night to sign up to sing. Above all the music was perfect and a great way to end our event. You won't regret booking these guys!!!

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. ​
