Testimonials

Just a quick note to thank Ste and his band for making our glitterball such a great night. We have had so many comments on how people loved the band,but actually with a full dance floor the whole way through you could tell everyone was loving it!
As we over ran with the meal, as often is the case with these things I really appreciate the fact that Duke played through to the end without a break
Thank you so much ... I'm sure you guys are in for a very busy Christmas time and will be making lots of other parties a great success too

-Jane Regnier December 2017


Duke recently played at our wedding. They were amazing from start to finish, had everyone up dancing and singing. They are all incredibly talented singing a huge range of brilliant songs. We have had loads of fantastic comments about them from our guests and many of them are hoping to book them for events in the future. We couldn't recommend them highly enough.

-Rosie and Andrew


Duke were great thanks - many complementary comments from guests and the Cricket Club said they were a
pleasure to deal with - very professional.

Thank you all for making it a successful and fun party night!

-Cricket Club Xmas 2015


Our guests really loved Duke's performance at my recent 40th Birthday Party. They held everyone on the dance floor and we rocked the night! A great act and I'd definitely recommend them - thank you!

-Julie Sturzy


Duke were fantastic on Friday, we loved them! We're really glad we've booked them!

-Rachael Dec 2014


What an amazing band! You certainly made our wedding evening absolutely fantastic and got everyone dancing. Despite our fears of no one dancing due to it being a small wedding (50 guests) you met our song requests and had everyone shouting for more at the end. We are extremely pleased we chose Duke to perform at our wedding and would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting a fabulous band, with a great sound and great repertoire. Thanks again - Natalie and Matt

Just wanted to say thank you for providing us with great entertainment on Saturday night. Everyone had a great time and it was just what we wanted.

Thank you again!

Unfortunatley couldnt get the full extent of your talents as you only managed to do half a set, due to our Awards overrun. BUT everybody truley enjoyed a great perfomance and act. Great night will definatley keep you in mind for our next event.

Used for a corporate Xmas party. Found them excellent - really tight, well rehearsed, great covers. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Hi, we saw Duke play at our friend's wedding near Derby in May of this year and they were awesome

-Peter Thomas


We booked Duke to play at our wedding and they were absolutely fantastic in every respect - their music, energy and professionalism. All of our guests (of every age and musical taste) commented at the time and since on what a great band they are. They rocked it from start to finish...We felt they made every effort to help us celebrate, thanks chaps!

-Kate & John


Duke had all our wedding guests screaming for more by the end of the night...I just wished we had a later bar as the party ended too soon. It was a great night and Duke helped to make it so special.Pass on my thanks to the band and to your team (expecially Gary) for making it happen.

-Phil Staniland
