Testimonials

I booked Plush for my birthday party as I previously heard them perform for a friend's birthday and yet again they were excellent. Their songs got everyone up and dancing and they made the event rock. Definitely recommend to anyone else who wants a full dance floor. They played at Enfield Town FC. Highly recommended

-Ian Biggs


'I wanted to say thank you for being such an amazing band. Everybody LOVED you. Our one and only regret is that we didn't organise for you to play all night. We absolutely wouldn't hesitate to recommend you t o thers and next time we have a big party, we'll be straight on the phone. Again, thanks so much ... you were brill' Liz and Mark, Wedding Celebration in Richmond

-Liz and Mark


Hush played at our wedding party and put on a fantastic show, ensuring everyone had a wonderful time. They were great!'

-D Nicholls


Truly stunning band. Saw them at a wedding in Surrey. What a show.

-Jemma


Awesome band that played at a venue in Fulham at the weekend before and after the rugby. The whole pub was singing. People were stanidng on chairs and table holding their lighters in the air at one point. Ab fab!

-James P


Great act. One of the best bands Ive seen. Real Pros.

-Andrew M


Hush played at the Queen Adelaide pub on Uxbridge Road in Shepherds Bush and had encore after encore as people kept on dancing and singing along. It was a magnificent night.They are highly recommended.

-Pub Manager


The singer is astounding. He really shone when I saw him at a West London wedding recently. For me it was a bit humiliating as I had always told my girlfriend that I could hold a tune. Sometimes you need to see someone really good to get how its done properly. I had to track them down to hear but am going to book them when I pluck up the nerve to pop the question.

-Joe


I saw them at a London pub and they were great. Everyone in the pub was dancing. I've not seen a live band in a pub environment get that kind of reaction for years.

-Benedict


We were nervous about booking a band for our wedding. We’re music lovers and wanted a top notch band. After all, the band is the finale to the party. From the moment Plush started playing we realised we needn’t have worried about a thing. These guys had been incredibly professional right from the get-go. They played two stunning sets that had everyone dancing throughout. There was pop, rock, soul and funk. Their final set was non-stop high energy dance songs. But, the guests wouldn’t let them go and they played a rousing encore of sing-a-long tunes. It was the perfect ending to a great day. Plush is one of the most versatile bands I’ve seen. We couldn’t believe we got this kind of talent for the price. I can’t recommend them enough.’

-Guy and Pandora Frost, Wedding in July 2014,


Excellent singer, great arrangements and real stage presence. They played the officers mess in Oxford and were a real pleasure to watch. Everyone was dancing and singing a long. Rousing stuff indeed.

-James


Great band. I saw them at the Officers Mess party in Oxford. Stunning performance and amazing tunes. Their songs kept everyone dancing all night. Thanks Hush for ending the night with a bang.

"I'd heard they were good, but the sound, performance and energy was something else. The singer's a dynamo! I'm going to book them for my fiancé's thirtieth" Aaron , Hammersmith.
'We couldn't have booked a better band for our wedding. They worked with us on the material we wanted them to play and were quiet as mice as they set up on the day. Forgive the pun, but they were the icing on our wedding cake. They brought our fabulous wedding day to a wonderful end. Many of our guests couldn't believe that we had booked such a fantastic band. We couldn't believe that they were so reasonably priced. Now we can't wait to see them live again. It will bring back great memories.' (Justin and Katie Edgar, Richmond)

'Hush put on a fantastic show at our street Party. They really entertained the crowds at the street party in front of thousands of people. It was a great day and the guys really lifted everyone's spirits with some cracking music.' (Tom, landlord of the Andover Arms and organiser of the Summer Street Party in Hammersmith)

'I booked Hush for my birthday party, and they put on a stunning gig. It was a night to remember. My guests and I were astonished just how many songs we got for the money. I can't recommend them highly enough.' (Arthur Martin, Wimbledon)

'Hush put on a great gig that had everyone in the pub dancing throughout the night. They were very professional and gave an exceptionally entertaining show. The band is a real crowd pleaser.' Alon, manager, The Landor ( pub ) - Clapham

'This band is pure entertainment. Their sheer musicianship is matched by their ability to entertain. Rarely do you get a band this good with such imagination. I booked them for my birthday party and they were far better than any DJ.' (Richard Alleyne, Notting Hill)
