-Tom

Can you thank the band on our behalf as we and everyone thought they were totally excellent! The venue night manager also said to me that she had never seen so many people on the dance floor for so long, so full credit to Sugar shack, shows how good they were!

When the venue inform you that they have never seen so many on the dance floor for so long, you know just how bloody brilliant Sugar Shack were.

Thank you!

-Lisa


What an amazing night!!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to Sugar Shack. They completely made out event!

They were friendly, punctual, professional and a total pleasure to work with!

The dance floor was packed out from the very first track! They made the decision to run with one long set (instead of 2) which was just perfect for us. Not only did it ensure that the atmosphere was not deflated it also put our running order back on track as we were running late!

The performance was fantastic and the feedback I had from guests was even better!

I would happily recommend you and them for any future events.

-School Fundraising Event July 2013


What an amazing night!!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to Sugar Shack. Running with one long set worked brilliantly - the atmosphere was fabulous and you had the whole room on the dance floor from start to finish! The performance was fantastic and the feedback I had from guests was even better!

I would happily recommend you for any future events.

On a more somber note can you please forward me our invoice for the amount we paid you?

I hope you had a trouble free journey hime and many thanks once again for a great evening.

-Lisa July 2013


Sugar Shack played at my daughters wedding and were excellent, great music, good beat and everyone was impressed. We have had lots of good feedback and hopefully a few more booking for the band !

-Tim


Harriet and Tom and all the guests were absolutely delighted with the band, your music. Both the sessions were superb and you are all to be congratulated on your sounds, skill and energy !!! Well done.

-Wedding Planner June 2013


My (now) wife and I booked Sugar Shack for our wedding reception in January 2013. Despite the slightly awkward venue (small and oddly shaped) and the late running of the meal beforehand, the band were absolutely professional, very friendly and accommodating and - most importantly - sounded utterly brilliant. Those who wanted to dance were treated to a great selection of tunes to strut their stuff to and those who have two left feet (like myself) could just admire the tremendous musicianship and energy. Highly recommended!

-David and Ginny


thay are fabulas singers and even dance and get in to the music all the wat through watch the vidio and you will see what i mean

-penny


Just watched the vids on this page and loved them.would you be able to tel me if they are free on April 8 for my wedding

-Pete white


I spent ages researching to get a good band as this was one of the main things that mattered to me at our wedding. We chose Sugar Shack and these guys rocked. They played a great mix of tunes and the party went off. The dance floor was packed for the whole night and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

-Ed T

We recently got married and hired Sugar Shack to perform at our reception. They were great! Very proffessional, i didnt have to worry about them on the day, they set up quietly in the room ajoining the main pavillion. They had people on the dance floor and people commented to us about how great it was having a live band. Thankyou so much to all of you for helping to make our day very special. Also a great agencie to deal with before getting in contact with the band.

Just wanted to say a huge Thank you to Sugar Shack for playing at our Wedding Party at the weekend. You were awsome and all guests loved the band.

I have to say also that as you were there in plenty of time and setup before our guests arrived, it made Dawn and I very relaxed about the whole event.

A huge thank you once more, we will not hesitate to use you again if we hold any more parties over the coming months / years.

we have already booked next years band but i am pretty confident we will be in touch autumn of 2012 to book you for 2013

thanks again it was a perfect evening, sorry i didnt see you before you left, with a few drinks inside me i tend to lose track of the evening once the dancing has started

fond regards

lesley" June 2011

ps could listen to your voice for hours, only wish i had known about it as i would have called rather than emailed!!!


"Hi Paul

Just wanted to email to thank every member of Sugar Shack that played at our wedding on Saturday
The band were amazing, from the moment they started the dance floor was full with every guest dancing my only concern was that my dance floor was not big enough for all my guests to bust their moves on!

Both singers were brilliant and the female singers version of lady ga-ga's poker face was amazing!

Most of the guests commented on how great the band was and they certainly completed what was the best day ever for me and my husband. Being a big music fan myself I spent a long time choosing my wedding band but I have to say I made the best choice I could not recommend Sugar Shack enough!

Thanks again
