Testimonials

Floodgate played at our wedding on 21st September and were completely brilliant. Everyone has said so. The dance floor was full all night and the band involved people, which kept the crowd amused. We could not have been happier with Floodgate and recommend them wholeheartedly - our guests were around the 28-year-old mark mainly, but the oldies also enjoyed them as they play such a range of classics. Thank you Floodgate for making our wedding night so much fun!

-Leonora Philipps


We loved your music. The dance floor was crowded throughout thanks to your verve and style.

Rick,

Could not have been better. Great.
Thank you for providing a quality service.

-Sarah (Wedding Sept 2012)


Floodgate were simply excellent. Their performances during my daughters wedding really made the day a memorable one. Highly recommended, we'll definitely use them again.

�Many, many thanks for a fantastic gig on Saturday night. You were fabulous! I am still receiving emails, texts and calls two days on telling me what a wonderful party it was and how much they enjoyed FTF.

If you ever need a reference/recommendation get in touch - I would be more than happy to tell anyone what a great time we had with you on Saturday.�

Ruth Sullivan � Birthday Party


�I was at the party on Saturday at Fawley Court and just wanted to say that I thought you were great� you really worked it and the standard of musicianship was outstanding��


�Thank you and the band for the most amazing performance, everyone has said what a wonderful time they had with the band getting everyone moving and really creating a wonderful atmosphere, thanks for staying and keeping the party going!

I have been asked who you are by many of the guests who loved your music and sound, I hope you get lots of booking you all deserve to.�

Sue Shirley � Wedding Party


�Thank you all for stunning music � we had huge compliments including from most neighbours who came outside to hear you better!�

Maggie Parker � Wedding Party


�We just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you. The band really were incredible, we lost count of the number of people that complimented us on them, often multiple times! In many ways they really made the night for us, getting everyone on the dance floor (both young and old) and making sure everyone had a good time.

We would really appreciate it if you could pass on our thanks to the musicians, as they all did a fantastic job. We would also really like you to pass on our thanks to Harlan, he was absolutely outstanding, a great voice and a real showman - getting everyone involved and lightening the mood without ever becoming cheesy.

We will be sure to recommend you guys to anyone who needs a band for any event at all!�

Ben & Sarah � Wedding Party


�We just wanted to say thank you to you all for playing at our Wedding. You were fantastic and you really helped make the evening such a fun night. We have had loads of friends and family tell us that they really enjoyed all the music and dancing.

We thought that it was great how you managed to get everybody dancing by getting a crowd on the dancefloor to watch a bestman versus groom dance off or a bit of beatboxing from my 12 year old brother - then launching into a song whilst everybody was all up!

From listening to your website and looking at YouTube we thought that you would be good, but you were absolutely amazing - we loved it!�

Emily & James � Wedding Party


�Just wanted to thank you and the rest of the Floodgate for the great entertainment you provided at the wedding. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your sets. The songs and energy were fab, and we particularly enjoyed the dance off.

Yasmin & Jason � Wedding Party


�Alice and I recently returned from our honeymoon and we both wanted to say thank you so much for your performance at our wedding 3 weeks ago.
We�ve had rave reviews from all our guests and everyone had a lot fun dancing the night away!�

Mark & Alice � Wedding Party


�I just want to say a big thank you to all of Floodgate for your part in making my 50th birthday party such a great & enjoyable success.

You will be remembered & remarked upon for a long time�

Neil Gubbins � Birthday Party


"Thank you so much for all your efforts; the energy you put into your performance was phenomenal - you're great performers and an absolute pleasure to work with"

Katherine Simpson - Events Manager, PruHealth


�I just wanted to thank you again for such an amazing time last Saturday at Stoke Newington Town Hall. Ben and I (and our guests) had a fabulous time and a lot of that was down to you and the rest of the band.

I don't intend to get married again (good job!) but I will spend the whole of my married life looking for an excuse to have you play again at a party that we host!�

Jenny & Ben � Wedding Party


�I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making the evening such a success. I�ve had nothing but compliments about the music and several guests have asked for your details for future events. I found you to be reliable & professional and would not hesitate in recommending you�
