Testimonials

"Hello Rick,

We certainly did book The Offenders and they were absolutely fantastic - they are a great act and we could not have been happier. Dealing with LMM was very easy and straightforward, as it should be. What made the whole process so much more easy was that Mike got in touch a few days before the wedding and he is a great communicator. We would highly recommend both LMM and The Offenders. We have sent an e-mail to Mike and please feel free to quote from it for promoting the band:

"Hi Mike,
We just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding. The band truly has a great sound and your repertoire really got people dancing. Everyone we have spoken to has said just how wonderful you were and how much they enjoyed the evening. Thanks for helping that happen.

Cheers,

Graham and Helen" June 2011

"It�s always a pleasure to have The Offenders playing for us. They must be one of the best bands on LMM�s books!"

"A very good show again from the boys. The Offenders always seem to deliver the goods."

"The Offenders were fantastic!! They played an excellent mix of music for all age groups. Everyone was up dancing all night. They really made the evening section of our wedding. We would thoroughly recommend them - 10/10."

"The band were fantastic, they had our guests up on the dance floor from the moment they started playing. Everyone commented (and still are) on how fantastic and great sounding they were. I would recommend them time and time again. Thank you for helping us make our day a success."

"Thank you to The Offenders for making our wedding day so special. I was so proud to see literally all our guests on the dance floor right up until the moment they stopped playing at the end of the night. Everyone commented on how fabulous they were. They amused everyone, young and old."

"The Offenders simply played the best floor fillers I have heard. Everyone danced and loved it - thank you."

"The Offenders were amazing, very professional and ensured our wedding went with a swing. I would highly recommend them to others."

"The Offenders were fantastic and we received many comments from guests relating to the quality of the band's performance. They turned a fantastic day into a fantastic evening and we are very grateful!"

"We had praise for choosing such a great band and favourable comments from our guests about The Offenders. They made our evening fun and enjoyable (for all ages!) and our first dance and an unexpected (but great!) last dance and exit the most special it could ever have been. Thank you all so much."
