Absolutely brilliant band - seem them a few times at Walkabout. They really got the place going. Lead singer has an amazing, versatile voice and is kinda cute after you've had a few beers!

-Claire


Amazing band - their U2 tribute was like listening to the real thing, plus the lead singer (Paul) is really cute! Five stars!

I saw this superb band at a private garden party, playing a good mix of soft rock, indie and even some funk.
I asked them about their next gig and took lots of friends to see them at O'Neills in Bromley.

-Steve


I've seen these guys twice now at the Roadhouse in Covent Garden, London. They rocked! Really got the crowd going. Loved 'em!

-Tammy


Seen this band twice now, once at Temple Walkabout pub and an acoustic set at the O'neils pub in blackheath. Great sounding vocals with a good mix of contemporary and classic indie/rock tracks that get punters singing.

Jolie (50th birthday party Jan 2017) 10/10

We hired The Locals for my wife's 30th birthday and can't recommend them highly enough. A fantastic group that play a great variety of songs, they really made the whole evening, one not to be forgotten. Also an extremely pleasant bunch of guys and we have had a couple of people ask us for their details off the back of them playing for us. Many thanks again to you all, you were Brilliant.
Paul Russell (30th birthday party- March 2017 ) 10/10

We thought the band were fantastic, and we have received numerous compliments from our guests all saying what great night.

A few people have asked me to forward your details.

Thank you very much for making my wives 50th party such a great success, and the diversity you provided with the playlist to accommodate all age groups and tastes.
Daren Vaughan - July 2017

' I have to say these guys were highly professional to the 'core' from start to finish on and off the the stage, not the easiest gig for them - location difficult to find , power issues (not their fault) and a few over excited guests who fancied their chances on stage - all 'water off a ducks back for these chaps' - It is always good to see a band that can improvise , change things around a bit - they really got things going and would highly recommend them'

Thanks again

Mark & Elaine Tebbutt- July 2017

'The guys came to play at our wedding and they knocked it out of the park. Every song was a floor filler getting everyone moving on the dance floor. There was even some crowd surfing. Cheers guys!'

Thanks again
Aaron Fitz-Hugh- August 2017

Thank you for playing at our 'non wedding' on Saturday 2nd September.

All my guests really enjoyed the evening and thought the band was great. Many of my guests asked were I got you from and I would 100%, without doubt or hesitation recommend you to them. Communication and advice from you was excellent. I couldn't have asked for a better band or evening.
