Testimonials

Couldn't have asked for more this weekend when you played for our wedding! Despite some last minute changes to the timings you guys were happy to adapt and keep the dance floor going all night. The acoustic duo was the perfect way to get our guest in the mood for the evening to come and the full live band were absolutley brilliant! Our guests have been so vocal about how great they thought you were so thank you for making our day so special!

The Rule were amazing we could not be happier! We booked the acoustic duo for our drinks reception which set the scene perfectly for our chilled atmosphere and we have the 5 piece band for the evening to get the party started! Everyone was on the dance floor - I just wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much guys!

Fantastic band and photo booth!! Absolutely made the evening of our wedding, the 4 piece band created a fantastic atmosphere with a variety of music that everyone could enjoy and the photo booth was just the touch of fun we wanted for our guests. Couldn’t have wished for a better evening reception and would 100% recommend.

"I have booked Chris and the guys this Festive period for two large corporate events I have been organising. I cant speak more highly of the guys, professional and helpful throughout the whole process and were beyond amazing when it came to the playing the actual events. I also hired the silent disco & bandeoke for one of them which went down an absolute storm! The feedback from the client has been exception and they will most certainly be my go to band going forward! Thank you again for everything!"

"Our wedding was perfect and my wife and I owe a huge thank you to The Rule for playing a big part in this. The rendition of the first dance was excellent, as was the whole set. Kept people dancing while not being overpowering and adjusted to late timing changes without difficulty.
True pros and superstars.Thank you,"

Mr & Mrs Jones, Old Down Estate, November 2017

-Mr & Mrs Jones


I can highly recommend the Rule Band. I am a wedding photographer (Sand in my Pockets) and I have seen a lot of wedding bands and these guys are great. I saw them at a recent wedding in Devon and they definitely got the crowd up dancing straight away and kept them there.

Cara Griffiths, July 2017, Devon

Booking a band can be daunting but we were recommended The Rule Band after they played at our friend's wedding last year. They were very responsive to all our communication and we liked their website and song choice. We booked The Band and the Silent Disco and they were both a big hit! Due to restrictions our chosen venue had to stop the live music by 23:30. We did not want to stop partying so Chris suggested that we try the Silent Disco. We kept it as a surprised and everyone loved it. I figured that we had paid for the venue so we might as well use it for the maximum amount of time (so glad we did). The Band were brilliant and played all our favourites. The Silent Disco was hilarious, guests are still talking about it now! We can't thank you enough! All the best for the future. Simon & Alice

Thanks so much Chris and the rest of the band - always very quick to respond and alleviate my bridezilla concerns!! The duo, full band and silent disco were fabulous, The dance floor was never empty and I think that's the highest compliment you can give! You also have encouraged our 7 year old nephew even more into becoming a musician!!!! We have had so many comments on how great the band was, so thank you so much! Just need an excuse for another party so we can get you to play for us again!!!! Xx

-M Bryan, Cricklade Rugby Club, June 2017


We had the confidential band play at our wedding on 3rd June. They were absolutely amazing, we've had so many comments on what a fab band they were and the dance floor was constantly full which says it all! Thank you the confidential band!

-Jemma & Wayne, The Manor Barn, June 2017


Huge thanks to Chris and the amazing Rule Band who played at our summer Ball on July 1st 2017 at Colston's school. 
It was a great night and the dance floor was packed all night so a clear indication that the band rocks!
We also had the photo booth from them which was a great hit!
Thanks again and we would book you again in the future!

"A high thankyou to the band who played at our wedding at the weekend, you guys are amazing!!! Thankyou so much, The Morses xxx"

Amy & Rich Morse, Bristol, June 2017 

"A huge thank you to Chris and The Band for playing at our wedding at Priston Mill on 13th May. 
We had seen the band a few times at gigs so we knew they were excellent,but they absolutely rocked our wedding, the dance floor was full from start to finish, young and old! It was just what we had dreamed of.
Not only were the band great, but Chris gave us some great advice beforehand about timings etc based on his experience- which was spot on and really helped. They set up and packed away quickly and dealt directly with the venue so didn't disturb our day at all. 
Really professional and most importantly played great floor filling classics, and the vocals worked perfectly with every song. 
Finally, the band also managed our playlist for before their set and during the interval too which was fab. If you are thinking of booking this band- do it!"
 
Laura & Will Caudwell, Bath, May 2017 

"The Band played at my Daughters wedding and being a Musician myself I did spend hours looking at the internet trying to find the right band.
I can now save you that Time. Book the Band you cannot go wrong. A great bunch of people to deal with and highly talented Musicians with a very professional presentation of all the songs that will get your party dancing until the end of the evening. The Shuffles Band are the Real Deal."

Julian Scott, Wiltshire, April 2017 

"The Band were amazing! This is the second time we have booked the band and they have been worth every penny, totally made the evening special very professional and talented. Just need another occasion so I can book them again!!!"

Bex Walsh, Heywood, 50th Bday Party, March 2017

We booked The Rule for our wedding last month along with their Photo Booth and Silent Disco. The band were amazing! The dance floor was full all night. The Photo Booth was a big hit and the Silent Disco allowed us to party until 01:00!! The Rule, thank you so much. To everyone else, book this band they are brilliant!

-Alice & Simon


We had the band play at our Xmas party and they were amazing! Everyone was up dancing all night! :D

-Jodi May


This band played for our Summer Ball and put on a fantastic show. Amazing lead vocalist backed by a very slick band. We were so impressed that we want them back again for our 2017 Ball. Great show.

-Dan Wheeler


"The Rule were superb, top class professional musicians providing great entertainment appealing to all. They got everyone up and dancing.

The Rule provided everything to make our new year eve party a roaring success."


Morgan Gray, Thatched Cottage Inn, Shepton Mallet, Dec 2016 NYE private party

"Hi Chris, just wanted to thank you and the band for helping to make our company’s 40th Anniversary celebration a resounding success. We had over 140 guests and have had so many comments on how fantastic the band were.
Sincere thanks again and we hope to book you again in the very near future."

Karen Mercer, County Contractors, Weston Pier Dec 2016

“We booked The Rule Band for our corporate event following a recommendation and they were amazing – not only the music, which got the party started, but also a couple of sessions of Bandeoke, which was great fun. The addition of a Photo Booth just ticked all of the boxes and our evening was complete – a huge success. A huge thank you to The Rule Band!”

Anita Gent, Welcombe Hotel, Stratford-Upon-Avon Nov 2016


"The Rule Band were fantastic at our wedding. We requested a first dance that wasn't on their play list, and they were more than happy to accommodate. Their version of 'you are the sunshine of my life' was brilliant. The sets they played were relevant to the people on the dance floor, and they kept everyone moving. They were happy to be flexible on the night when we had to make some last minute changes to when food was available, and when the cake was cut, and they liaised directly with the venue where necessary. I couldn't recommend them more highly."

James & Anna, Bickley Mill, Devon Oct 2016

"We booked The Rule Band for our wedding celebrations after watching their promo video & we are so pleased we did, they exceeded all expectations. They really started the party, getting young and old up dancing within minutes of playing. They performed our first dance song wonderfully. Many guests have passed comment on how great the band were throughout the evening & the dance floor was never empty.
The band were discreet in setting up/down & were really responsive to all communication beforehand.
We all had a fantastic time and can’t thank The Rule enough! Now looking for an excuse to have you play again!!

Thanks again, and we’ll be sure to follow you and come and see you play in the future"

Hollie & Ashley Halls, St Audries Park, Sept 2016

"The Rule Band made our day and night! The duo came and set up without a fuss and the band were very professional and interacted with the crowd, they were great fun. I organised our wedding from Australia and it was clear to see on their website that the band would be great. We didn't want an average wedding band and The Rule Band exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend booking this band!"

Lauren & Andy Hardiman, The Haymeadow, Somerset Sept 2016

"The Rule Band were recommended to us for our wedding and we will be doing the same! We opted for the Jazz duo followed by the four piece band and DJ and couldn't be happier with how the whole night went! The band were discreet to set up/shut down and the transition between band and DJ was so smooth. The band had everyone up on the dancefloor within minutes of playing and we remained there all night! It was a brilliant atmosphere and we can't thank them enough."

Bethany & Chris Wivell, Backwell, Sept 2016

“Booking a band for the most important day of your life is nerve racking, to say the least. We really liked your website and the clips, but it still wasn't an easy choice. After much deliberating we decided to take the plunge.

In the build up you were really responsive to all of our questions & on the day you turned up & set up discretely and when we were ready to go, you put on a great show. Not only did you sound amazing, you looked the part as well. With a professional setup, great set list and enough energy to keep everyone going all night. It was absolutely fantastic & we couldn't have asked for anything more.

We couldn't recommend you highly enough it capped off an amazing day and the fact that you setup outside under the fairy lights so we could dance away the night with friends & family was magical. My only regret was that you had to stop.

Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. I don't know what I had to worry about!

Best of luck with the rest of the year, I hope it's a busy one.”

All the best. Josie and Tom Mardle August 2016


“Dealing with The Band was an absolute pleasure – at every stage.  They responded to any query quickly and efficiently (which certainly set them apart from other bands we investigated).  They kept in contact all the way through from booking to the event.  Their website demonstrates how seriously Chris and t
