I would just like to say you were right about the band. Excellent set of lads and musicians.
It was a great night and I hope the lads enjoyed it as well as the food.
Arrived on time and played just the kind of music we like.
Would have no hesitation in recommending them and your company to my friends and colleagues.

-Howard Firth Nov 2015


Back from honeymoon and just wanted to thank Freak Out for being absolutely brilliant at our wedding in York on 5 September 2015! You guys were amazing and we couldn't have been happier with the set list and your general energy and enthusiasm. We had so many guests commenting on how good you were and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Thanks again!

-Katie and Alex Watson


We booked Freak Out! to play at our wedding and couldn't be happier with the choice. Great bunch of guys who were very friendly and easy going.

-Corporate Awards June 2015


We heard Freak Out at a friends wedding and knew that we had to have them at our wedding too. Once again they we're absolutely fantastic! They play a great range of songs suiting all guests and had everyone on the dance floor from the beginning to the end of the night. We had such great comments from our guests most of which were Freak Out being the best band they had heard. We would highly recommend Freak Out and hope to hear them again in the near future.

-Mr and Mrs Jones June 2015

Just wanted to say – what a LOVELY bunch of boys Freak Out are! So much fun and they were just brilliant to work with. The crowd absolutely loved them, I’ve been receiving emails ever since saying they were the best thing about the party. So thank you very much for a top band, we’ll definitely be in touch when we have another event on where we can use them!!

Freak Out played at my clients Christmas party on Sunday night and they were very well received, loved the mix of music and certainly got everyone up on the dance floor – which is just what we wanted

-Emma PR China Rose


I just wanted to say the guys were amazing on Saturday they literally went above and beyond and helped save my event. Please pass on my gratitude, I’ve also asked them to get a better video which I can have to sell into my clients.

Thanks to you for sorting at such short notice.

-Event Planner Manchester Nov 2014


We booked the band for our Wedding for the end of August 2014. They were absolutely incredible and had all my guests dancing. They were able to tailor their set to just how we wanted and did not disappoint. All our friends since the wedding have not stopped talking about how good they were, and I think at least 3 couples have booked them for their own upcoming weddings. Thanks guys!

-Daniel Lee


Hi,Having Heard FREAK OUT at a friends wedding last year I HAVE to have them for mine on the 31st of August next year.Please can you let me know if they are available for this date and also, if they are, the quickest way to get them booked in.

-Jaime Sept 2014


The band played at our wedding on Saturday and were amazing! They are supercool and I love their mash ups which always bring a smile to my face. Thanks guys! X x

-Nicola and Tony


You were absolutely amazing and certainly had us dancing all night. Everyone commented on how good you were and got the party atmosphere going. Thank you so much.

It was lovely to finally meet you at Ents Forum yesterday! Freak Out were absolutely brilliant and it was great to have them kick off the after-party.

-Coalition Talent July 2014


Absolutely awesome! I have never danced as much as I did at my own wedding as the music was so good. My feet have only just recovered! Everyone said they thought you were brilliant! What a fantastic end to a brilliant day. Thanks so much guys, Kate (and Rory) Neary

-Kate and Rory Neary


Hi Freak Out,
Just returned from honeymoon and have finally returned back down to earth after an amazing wedding day at Arley Hall on 19th October. The band made a significant contribution to that wonderful day and we wanted to say a big thank you for a great live playlist and performance (and yes, you were definitely right about Blurred Lines :) )!!! Really positive feedback from our guests too All the best!

-Helen & Mark. Wedding, Arley Hall & Gardens, Cheshire. October 2013.


Thanks James,
And I am so sorry that I havent replied sooner to your email. You were amazing on our wedding day, all the guests have commented on how awesome you all were, perfect mix of music and mash ups to get everyone on the dance floor. You guys absolutely made the evening special for us. Sorry again that this is so late. All the best.

-Claire & Chris. Wedding, Oulton Hall, Leeds. October 2013.


Hi James & Freak Out!
Just got back from honeymoon and wanted to reply to you on this as we both loved the band! Exactly what we wanted, you kept everyone on the dance floor and created a really great party atmosphere loads of our guests commented on the band after the wedding, everyone loved it!! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding a day/night to remember.

-Cath & Chris. Wedding, Rudding Park, Harrogate. October 2013.


We were blown away by Freak Out.
The band played at our wedding at West Tower in Aughton in November 2013, after we booked them based on a recommendation from a friend. Although the venue had quite strict rules on equipment, certification etc, James was extremely flexible and accommodating in ensuring that all requirements were met. He was very friendly and laid back in his correspondence and answered all of our questions straight away. On the night, the band showed up on time and set up their equipment in a fairly short space of time when the room was being turned around for the evening. James even took on the role of Master Of Ceremonies for the evening, announcing the cutting of the cake and our first dance. As for the music, what can I say - other than "wow". From the moment the band started playing the dance floor was packed - and my side of the family normally take some convincing to start dancing. Their sound was amazing, they are fantastic performers, and James is a real showman with a great voice. The band has a really good range within their repertoire, and seemed to have their finger right on the audience's pulse throughout and knew exactly what songs to play. A personal favourite memory was when they played a small section of "Oops Upside Your Head" and all the scouse relatives got straight down on the floor and started doing the dance moves - so the band obliged and played the whole song. I cannot recommend Freak Out highly enough. All night people kept say

-Will Walton. Wedding, West Tower, Aughton. November 2013.


I cannot recommend Freak Out enough!!
From the start of our enquiry until after the wedding reception they have been helpful, friendly, professional and amazing! Nothing was too much trouble and the actual performance blew us away! All our guests said how good they were and they got everyone on the dance floor. A lot of my female guests commented that they were easy on the eye too ;) xx

-Sarah & Brian. Wedding Hampton Manor, Hampton-in-Arden, Solihull. January 2014.



Hi James,
On behalf of Bowdon Church School thank you so much for a fabulous night at our annual ball at Bowdon Rugby Club. Freak Out were the best band we have ever had and you had the dance floor full all night! You had loads of compliments in the playground on Monday morning and we are already sorting dates for next years ball so hope to see you there! Thanks again Helen and the team. x

-Helen Buckley. Bowdon Church School Ball, Cheshire. February 2014.


We had this band at our wedding and they were amazing! A lively, funky band that kept everyone on the dance floor - we loved them :)

We hired the band for our wedding and as we don't live in the area we had to rely on the demo tracks on the website to choose the band.
The band were really great to get in touch with and made organising the evening very easy with good advice re set timing etc.
On the big day they were awesome and got everyone on the dance floor. I have never even seen my mum and dad even hold holds and somehow they got them on the dance floor! Some of our guests got their contact details for their weddings. Highly recommended.

-Patrick and Chrissy


Freak Out are a brilliant band- they had all my wedding guests dancing all night and worked their way through our playlist. The lead singer Baggy is fantastic-he puts his own style into all the tracks. I would definitely recommend this band.

-Ellen Tatterton


really terrific band with a great lead singer who oozes charisma. I booked this band for my birthday party and couldn't be happier that I did.They made the night.

-Peter Middleton


James the band were absolutely amazing and guests are still texting me to say how good the band were and how much fun everyone had.
We only decided our first dance 2 weeks before the wedding day and they nailed it on the night. Excellent guys well done.
If you have a crowd that like to party then this is the band for you! HIRE THIS BAND

-Joshua & Claire - Midalnds wedding


The live music was great - particularly the duo on Friday - lovely harmonies and a great sound - very good...Freak Out acoustic duo.

-Birmingham Walkabout Jan 2013


What a great night! We asked you to fill the dance floor, and boy, did you succeed! Everyone up on their feet for all 3 sets - brilliant! - and all of the feedback has been "best Christmas party ever". We will book Freak Out again!

-the Leeds mob


We had this band for our Christmas party 2012. They were brilliant from start to finish, and very flexible with what we wanted. Would definetly recommend to anyone wanting some quality live entertainment. Well done guys:-))

Hi Freak Out!!

Hannah and I are back from honeymoon and would like to say a huge thank you, to you and all the other band members for making our wedding reception such a great night. Everybody had a fantastic night and we have absolutely no doubt it wouldnt have been half the party without you guys playing. Everybody commented on how much they enjoyed your performances.

Both Hannah and I are now looking for another excuse to through a big party and soon as we find one, youll be the first person we call!! Seriously though, we do hope to book you again in the future sometime but until then, we will keep an eye on your next performances at Hogans or the Knutsford wine bar and be sure to catch up with you and say a personal thank you.

Many thanks.

Phil & Hannah (AKA Mr & Mrs Hatton!)

Freakout played at our wedding at Castle Combe and were fantastic! The guys had great enthusiasm creating a real party atmosphere. So many of our friends and family have commented how great they were. Highly recommended!
Thanks again guys,

-Lisa & Martin Holmes


Hi Rick and Alex,

I have reviewed the band on your website. A definite 5 out of 5. Everyone loved them. They were as good as I remembered from my Walkabout days. They got everybody dancing and there was something for everyone, which is what we were looking for as there is a wide age range of staff at the University.

Thanks for your help with booking Freak Out, Alex.

Kind regards

-Natalie Lincoln University Xmas Ball Dec 2011



I just wanted to say a HUGE thank to Freak Out for making our Wedding a great success, everyone raved about how fantastic you were and what a great selection of music you played!

Even my Dad was forced to join the throng on the dance floor and this is unheard of!

Thanks again, we had a perfect day and wouldnt change a thing!

-Melanie (nows Mrs Barrand)


Use to see Freak Out at my University Balls....those were the days!!!! Nottingham Unis best ever live band.

-Martin


I have seen Freak Out play at Sheffield Walkabout on five different occasions.Everytime I had a great time and the band played something I didnt expect to hear.

-Stevie B


Hi Rick,
Thanks ever so much for your lovely voicemail. Sorry to have missed you but I was in a meeting so had to switch my phone off. We are actually booking the band because we have seen them perform live twice ourselves and loved them! I'm so so pleased we can have them at our wedding - everybody will love them.
That is absolutely fantastic!

-Amy Parkes


Had Freak Out for my birthday party last year and still go and see them from time to time at the walkabout...nice guys with a great show

-Pete Walker


Very good band saw them in sheffield walkabout

Hi James,
Hey what a fantastic night mate everyone really enjoyed themselves. I have come into work this morning and I can tell you the place and the boss is still buzzing, still talking about how good you were. Freak Out! were absolutely amazing I have never seen the dance floor so full, the music selection was brilliant really good and something for everyone, Thank you for the special track you rehearsed for us at short notice it was much appreciated. I just dont understand why youre not in the charts.
This is the first time that we have used a live band for our Christmas party and I assure you it wont be the last and I would have no hesitation in asking Freak Out! to be part of our future party plans. Once again can I congratulate and thank you for such a wonderful event.
- Stephen Jones, Siemens Christmas Party, Cheshire. December 2012

"What can I say guys?!
What a night. Just brilliant and buzzing didnt want it to end. Millions of thanks for all the effort you put into your performance. The new Mr & Mrs Welfare."
- Christian & Louise Welfare. Stanley House, Lancashire. December 2012

Hi James,
Sorry not been in touch sooner we went away for a few days after the wedding.
A huge thanks for last Saturday, everybody I've spoken to has said how great you guys were. There were even some people on the dancefloor I would have never expected to see up and dancing but you even managed to get them up so well done. I never even noticed the power tripping out I was having such a good time so you disguised that well. Thanks again James, I hope to see you all again soon.
- Ben Palmer. Mosborough Hall, Sheffield. December 2012

Thank you so much for joining our party!
It was the second time you have entertained for our family and you were just as amazing as the first. What a party! I need to blame you guys for my extremely sore feet the next day!!x A few of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and asked for your details which we duly passed on. Lots of comments about how nice you guys were also - just perfect. Hope to see you again soon! - Lisa & Fraser xxx (Newly formed Mr & Mrs Cullen :))
- Lisa & Fraser Cullen. Norwood Park, Southwell, Nottinghamshire. August 2012

We wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for your brilliant work!!
For a start your patience at the beginning was great and we thoroughly thank you for that. You guys then worked brilliantly hard at getting the party going at the beginning despite the general post-cake lull and the fact that the power tripped (although I didn't even notice that!). It wouldn't have been such a fantastic night without you guys, so thank you very much. Kind regards, Mr & Mrs S.
- Harry Sharmen. Middleton Lodge, Richmond, North Yorkshire. August 2012

Amazing, amazing, amazing!
This word was all I heard from our guests on the night of our wedding. We had such a brilliant time with you guys, I did not move from that dance floor all night! You played to every age group, your mixes were so cool, please keep up the fantastic music. Just got your email on honeymoon in Hawaii but we want to thank you and the guys for a fantastic night, we're still talking about how brilliant you are! We had two people on the night wanting your details so I will pass them on, keep up the great nights you funky lot!�
