Testimonials

Your band was incredible! Your huge selection of iconic James Bond theme songs made our 007-themed gala come alive, and added a new level of energy to the night. The variety of vocal and instrument talent and the perfect choice of dance songs at the end, set The Ultimate Showband apart from any others Ive heard. Thanks for taking our event to a new level!

LPL Financial Monte Carlo 2014

I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism in both the time leading up to the event as well as everything that took place on the day of the performance. I still cannot believe you were able to get so many people up dancing. Your performance was outstanding from start to finish and is the main reason this event will be talked about for years to come. You set the bar so high, I have no idea how were going to top this next year.

Maritz Travel Company Monte Carlo 2014

I wanted to say thank you on behalf of Laurie and myself for providing us with such superb entertainment when your band played for us at our recent party. The feedback from our guests has been tremendous. We loved the band and when you started to play as the casino was revealed, the effect was amazing. The second set provided us with a great selection of very varied music which was well received.

Your diverse abilities to play and sing such great songs was just brilliant.

We regularly hold functions at our home so I very much look forward to a return visit by yourself and fellow band members.

Kind regards,

Sheila Hatcher Birthday Party August 2013

I just wanted to say once again 'wow!' We had the most amazing day/night ever and true to your word you kept the dance floor packed! I can't describe how much you guys made the night, thank you so much for playing at our wedding, it was magical and we just had the time of our lives. All anyone keeps talking about is how amazing you guys were and how you might be getting a few bookings from the wedding guests. You even made my nana get up and dance! Very impressive. Words just can't describe how much you helped make this the best wedding ever (many people have said it - not just me and frank!) Thanks again and I'll send through some pics - if you want any testimonials please let me know and I'll send through 10000000000000000000s


Mrs Grainger, wedding in London - August 24th 2012



Dear Ultimate Showband, what can I say? Your band made the whole day so special, and you now have many more fans! In fact everyone I've spoken to has said that they'd want to book you for any event they or their company are holding. You could be too busy in the future! Thank you so much for giving us the best evening ever,


Andrea, corporate event in Lincoln - 21st June 2012



We would like to thank the Ultimate Showband for having made our wedding so special. Absolutely everybody commented on how great the bands were and that you were the best bands they had ever heard. Alex and I could not stop smiling from the moment you started to play and I had goose-bumps all over my body. It was just such a great night and thank you again. Alex is waiting to hear about a possible date for his company dinner dance. Rest assured when this date is known we will contact you.

In the mean time we hope to see you in the Jazz Cafe which is our local venue and we believe you already played there in the past. Thank you so much!!!
