Testimonials

Testimonials:
"What an amazing band! Can't recommend them enough! They got in touch a few weeks before our wedding to discuss song choices and recommendations. They listened to these choices which was reflected in their playlist on the night. Amazing party atmosphere! "
-Jim Landers August 2016

"If you are looking for a live band , stop your search now The Business were fantastic and I wouldn't waste your time looking for anything else!"
-Eric Mahmood August 2016

"I just wanted to take the time to say a massive thank you to the band, you are so talented. The amount of people who were talking to me following our wedding and commenting how good you were was truly great! We definitely made the right choice. "You Got The Love" was an excellent choice to finish with and in the end you had a full dance floor! Seriously, I can’t thank you enough, you more than exceeded what Julie and I expected. Its safe to say you guys were a huge hit and ended our day perfectly!”
-Karen Donelly July 2016

"The Business were exactly what we wanted for our reception. They performed songs that we requested and also created a playlist that had a great balance of old and new songs which people knew. People stayed on the dance floor for every set! Thanks guys- it was the highlight of our big day!"
-Peter Barry July 2016

"Amazing. They were the talk of the night. Amazing, outstanding, fabulous” -Elise Potts
“We decided to book a band for this year’s Christmas Party and The Business exceeded all our expectations. Very talented and utterly professional group of people. The energy they provided MADE the party. They were a pleasure to deal with and we can’t recommend them enough!”
-John Carey December 2015

"The Business provided a night of brilliant music for our wedding reception! They are a group of very talented musicians and kept our guests dancing all evening. They sounded amazing and performed with so much energy and enthusiasm, we could not fault them. They were really professional and friendly guys, they topped off a fantastic day for us and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a modern and exceptional band for any event!”
-Susan Craig June 2016

"We have had a lot of great feedback from people since saying how good the band were. They were very friendly, well turned out and certainly projected a professional attitude. We would definitely re-book The Business for a future event – they were extremely professional and entertaining, and created a great talking point after the wedding. Thanks to the band for helping make our wedding such a special day!"
-Daryl Hale

"Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. We loved having The Business at our wedding party, they made the night feel epic! All of our comments were taken into consideration before the event so the whole set felt very personal on the night. The only bad part was when they had to finish! No one had a bad word to say. Thank you for everything, keep doing what your doing!"
-Terry Briggs May 2016

"If you need a band to make your party really go with a swing and get everybody up and dancing then The Business are the one. They judged they crowd perfectly and kept the music upbeat and fun. Everybody was so impressed that we had booked them without seeing them first and had trusted the demos that we had seen online. We were slightly nervous about this ourselves but had no reason to be. Book them while you can!"
-Ashley Reeves April 2016

"Performance was outstanding loved every minute of it and the guest were all very complimentary of the group. We would definitely use The Business again if we have the need for a live band. Thank you so much for everything. You made our day even more special than we ever thought it would be."
-Brent Fuller November 2015

"The Business were excellent. Can't say a bad word... They had the whole wedding party on their feet for two hours. Would definitely recommend to friends. Every song was bang on. Cheers guys!!!"
David Erickson August 2015

"Simply put, they were awesome. Everyone was dancing - and many people commented they had to double-check they were actually a wedding band rather than the original artists!!! They were great, very prompt to respond to all our questions, they were punctual and organised and nothing was a problem at all! It's a special day - and the band can make such a different to the success of an event so I felt it was worth paying a bit more money and I'd pay it again without question!"
-Mark Gant July 2015
