The band were absolutely sensational. Our event was for 650 teachers and absolutely each and every one of them has commented on what a wonderful time they had. The dance floor was packed and the band really knew how to work an audience. The age range at the event was 30-60 and the band played something for all tastes. Briliant

Manchester United, Corporate-

Henshaws Charity “You guys were awesome. You absolutely made our party!”

Carly & Chris- Wedding Client, Yorkshire- “you guys absolutely rocked”

Will Kay-Shuttleworth- 30th Birthday Party, Leeds- “Thank you so much Maria and Beggar's Banquet for playing at my wife Beth's 30th birthday in Leeds on Friday. Many of the guests have been asking after you since then and many were much later home on the night than they planned as they were too busy dancing! The choice of songs, the quality of the playing and vocal - it was all excellent, perfect for the party and made the night that much more special. You were also very friendly and helpful before and after the party and great to have around on the night. Thank you!”

Alison Wright, Wedding Client, York-" THE BEGGARS BANQUET were fabulous. Everyone enjoyed their set. They got everyone onto the dance floor. We are so glad we booked them. Definitely worth the money. We’ve never booked a band before or been to a wedding with a band so didnt know whether to do so or not. We would certainly re-book or recommend THE BEGGARS BANQUET. We had a fabulous day and the band certainly helped to make our evening very memorable. They were excellent. Thank you!!"

Alaina, Wedding
 THE BEGGARS BANQUET made our wedding evening even more special, which was hard to do. They topped off an amazing day! They have it all, a great song mix, incredible sound, Maria has an incredible voice and the guys playing drums and guitar were fabulous. You can tell they all love what they do. Thank you for being part of our special day.

Joanne, Wedding
 THE BEGGARS BANQUET were absolutely fabulous - incredibly friendly and easy-going, they mixed with the guests during the event and their performances were amazing - Maria has an incredible voice and from the moment they started their sets to when they finished the dance floor was packed. The band were a key part of the evening and I have received so many compliments from guests that thought they were amazing!

St Catherine's Hospice-You were superb and doubtless have a sparkling future. Many thanks for making the night go so very well. You and your group made all the difference.

Key 103- The feedback from all guests was excellent. The selection of songs was spot on and the dance floor was packed, I wish I'd have asked for an extra 1/2 hour.

Kenny & Jess Owen- At our wedding last week in Hathersage, Derbyshire, we hired you to play Jazz/Blues in the afternoon followed by a Party set in the evening, accompanied by the DJ service as well. They were both absolutely fantastic and made our day so special. All of our guests have said how brilliant you were on the day, setting just the right mood for the pre dinner drinks and canap�s and then later after the meal for the Disco. The music / entertainment makes or breaks the wedding for sure and I cannot thank you enough for the thoroughly professional, yet friendly and accommodating service that you provided. We cant wait to book you again in the future and would encourage anybody reading this to look no further in your search for the perfect entertainment for your event. All the best, Kenny and Jess Owen xxx
