Testimonials

We had a wonderful day - thank you very much! The Kids were excellent - we were very impressed. They arrived punctually, set up without hassle or fuss (we hardly noticed them) and then waited until we were ready for the first dance. Their set was fantastic - they judged the dance floor well and played songs that people wanted to dance to. They also coped very well with the change of timings. The meal had taken an awful lot longer than the timings we had agreed with Hawksmoor, so The Kids didn't come on until about an hour after we had originally anticipated. They managed to squeeze the two 45 minute sets effectively into one long set, which worked very well and which we appreciated. We would definitely recommend them to others!

-Sarah Batley May 2015


The Kids were the absolute icing on the cake they played a awesome set our guests are all raving about the quality of the child we had an absolute blast !!!! Thank you so much.

-Adrian Silman April 30 2016


The Kids absolutely made our evening, there was no stress with them setting up - they arrived on time and just got on quietly on their own getting themselves sorted. They played a wide range of different types of music but all to a very high standard and really got everyone involved on the dance floor. The dance floor was filled from start to finish. Also, it was great that they handled all the music seamlessly so that between their sets there was still music playing via mp3 for everyone to dance to - the music didn't stop once from start to finish and the acoustic set during desert was also a lovely touch. Many thanks to the child! Would and will highly reccomend!!

-Tim Bolter June 2016


Mind blowing band, it took me and my wife 5 minutes to realise it was not a cd playing. They also blew the whole venue away with their energy. No doubts, the best band I've ever seen at a private party!

-Tim Hawk


"Just a quick note to say thank you for making our Wedding day truly wonderful. It was the best day of our lives. Everyone was asking where we found The Kids or how did we know about them, they are outstanding. I just cannot tell you how amazing they are. Thank you once again. Hazel Hardy (06.05.12)"

"Just a quick note to let you know quite how good this band are! They made the evening. Seriously!! Every cover that they did sounded EXACTLY like the real version; the Killers the Strokes etc and they turned our dancefloor into a scene from a festival. Everyone who was there commented that they were extra special and can't believe that they are a wedding band available to hire. Thanks to The Kids for making this possible."(Charlie and Vicky Mansour)

"The Kids performed at our Wedding 2nd July 11 and delivered the performance of the millennium. The moment they started playing we had every guest come up to us to ask where we found them. I had given Nick a list of carefully picked songs for the band to play, however, as he noticed what the crowd liked he changed a few of them for better suiting songs, which was great as the main thing was to keep the party going.
Everybody was up on their feet for the entire second set in particular, and it was like being at a mini festival! The guys were very professional and Nick has a fantastic voice. The wedding was amazing in itself, and The Kids topped all expectations!� ( Monika Kahiluoto)

"Hi Nick.Where do I begin to tell you how fantastic you guys were at my Party?! EVERYONE thought you were amazing! Thank you so so much for a truly unbelievable night!
Its my 50th in 3 years so will be in touch myself then. My legs are still sore. I'm sure 47 year olds are not meant to pogo for 2 hours! Many thanks again.(Jenny Nelson)"

"The Kids really made our wedding evening. Our 130 guests ranging from 2 months to 90 years old had all travelled from London to Cornwall for it and so we wanted to make sure they had an evening to remember (including us and so we were anxious not to play cheese). We succeeded as The Kids had everyone up dancing until the end.
It was amazing and everyone has commented how great they were, and how they are the best band they have ever enjoyed at a wedding. Our only regret is that the hotel wouldn't let the music play past midnight as everyone was still on their feet at the end of the night. Thank you so much. (Liz and Tom)
