Wedding, birthday & corporate functions:
"The tightest act I have ever seen. I would recommend them with out a shadow of a doubt. It took about twenty seconds of their first song 'I feel good – James Brown' before the entire party was up and dancing."
Dan Willis Clarkson

"I want to say a really big and sincere thanks for helping to make our day the most memorable and perfect day we could have ever dreamed of.
The whole arrangement with you was superb, I know it was a little unique with you playing for the whole day and evening but everyone commented about how good the whole thing was. It really worked out better than we would have thought and we just wanted to say a big thank you to you all. Rich, Luke and Nick were all real top drawer, a real class act, we just hope all their voices have recovered!!!!
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else, and if you want to use me as a reference, please do not hesitate,
Thanks lads, take care and have a good christmas and successful career.
With warmest thanks and best regards,
Paul and Lisa Collings

"I couldn't believe it when they all swapped instruments and carried on playing through the night! It was amazing! I was also stunned to hear they've been on tour with Zero 7, Echo and the Bunnymen and The Wombats!"
Harry Jackson

"The music sent everyone into dancing frenzy before the guys were heckled for more. Best night of the year by far. I looked very pretty in my dress and think I may fancy the drummer"
Lindsay Gill

"Phenomenal voice! I couldn't get my head around how the singer could imitate every band they covered perfectly. They were so much fun and really made everyone laugh between songs. Not only that, but the bass player went round the party afterwards showing us the most incredible magic tricks!"
Helen Wilsen

"We just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping to make our day so perfect. you were absolutely brilliant and everyone commented on how incredible you were. From the acoustic set, to the first dance, to the sing-alongs at the end, it was spot on and we wouldn't have had it any different. In fact we both agreed that you were the best money we spent on the whole wedding!!!!
We mentioned it on the day, but we'd love to come and watch you guys again some time when you're playing in the bristol Sommerset area.
I don't know if there's some sort of mailing list you can put us on, or a place where we can check for gig dates? If you could let us know we'd really appreciate it. Also, do you have any CDs we could buy?"
Tony and Michelle Marshall

"We searched for a long while to find a band that would be suitable for
the event and we were not disappointed - they were perfect! They are
a great bunch of guys with a relaxed but professional attitude. Their
set list was everything you want from a wedding band - a solid
performance of a wide range of covers - but with their own fresh twist
on the sound of a few of the songs; for instance, adding a different
dimension to tracks like 'Sweet Dreams' with that thumping bass. The
lead singer's voice was phenomenal - people were really impressed with
his ability to sound like the original artists and the fact that he
did this for 3 hours!
Everyone there really enjoyed themselves, and we certainly would not
hesitate to recommend the band to others. Please thank them for
providing some fantastic entertainment for us and wish them well in
their future endeavours.
Neal & Anna Lyon

"We would just like to say what a great choice I made by selecting these lads!!!
There performance for our wedding was both breathtaking and spectacular. It really was everything we ever hoped it would be and much much more.
All of the lads were brilliant through out our day and made it a truly memorable day.
Do not hesitate to book the band, it was the only concern that I had for the day and I was wrong to be concerned. Absolute quality.
Thanks Nick, Rich and Luke, you made our day."
Patrick & Sarah

"Black Tye were absolutely incredible, all our wedding guests loved them and the span of music meant that young and old were on the dance floor all night. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys again. We searched high and low for a great band and these guys were it.
