Testimonials

Everything went to plan, Karen and her team did a fantastic job! The dance floor was packed all evening and the delegates loved them. A great band, thank you.

-Martyn Bye, Conference Director


Thank you so much, you ladies put on just the show I was after. When you sang Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves, I thought yes girls we can do it! What brilliant musicians, I loved it. Thank you.

-Dr Cheryle Berry MBE, District Governor


Dame Beat played at our wedding and absolutely made our night! Everyone was up and dancing and we had so many comments from people on the night and after the wedding about how much they loved the band. They have amazing energy and are incredibly fun, as well as all being brilliant musicians. They learned a song for us and their version is right up there with the original for us! Karen was really easy to deal with in the run up to the wedding - so lovely to chat to and we really appreciated how much effort she put into researching the venue/liasing with them so that everything went smoothly. Absolutely perfect from start to finish, I cannot recommend them highly enough!

-Wedding, London


Hi Karen, just to say thank you so much for last night, you guys were amazing! We had a great time and so many people told us how great they thought you were, how fun they found your sets and how much energy you all had (everyone is particularly in awe of how amazing you were, especially in those heels!) You totally made our night! Michelle & Matthew

-Wedding - Hawksmoor, London


made the best day of our lives even better!

Since our wedding a month ago we have continued to receive comments from guests about how brilliant the band were. Everyone was dancing for the whole night!

Karen was great at communicating before the event, taking onboard all our suggestions and including them in either the band's set or DJ sets in-between. She offered to perform our first dance song and the band learnt and played it brilliantly.

We were an hour late getting to the dancing from some overrunning speeches but the band were not only remarkably good natured about this they were also really accommodating, fitting the full sets in a shorter time so we still got the full amount, even though we expected to be cut short as it was us running late. We cannot thank you enough!

The music was so well arranged and performed with brilliant back-to-back medleys and something for everyone; we didn't leave the dance floor while they were on! So glad we had the full 8-piece lineup too because it was so good.

I can't gush enough about how brilliant they were and the wedding card we found when we got back from honeymoon was also such a sweet touch.

Book them! You won't regret it. We are already trying to work out whether we can afford an anniversary party as an excuse to have them back...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

-Abbie and James March 2018


Everyone had a wonderful time thanks to Dame Beat being so great! Thanks for another wonderful night!

Lakeside booked Dame Beat on the recommendation of friends who had seen them perform locally. The recommendation was more than justified... these girls are dynamite! They supported our comedy act in style and the audience were up on their feet immediately. Good looks, great musicianship and highly entertaining... ROCK ON GIRLS!

-Lakeside Country Club, Surrey
