We took a leap of faith in booking a band for our wedding without hearing them! Family members said we were mad, but based on reviews like these we trusted that the guys would bring the party to our evening reception, and we weren’t disappointed! Communication with Stuart was excellent throughout the booking process and the band were really chilled about timings of our day, completely understanding that things don’t always go to plan! The band performed our first dance song for us and a wide range of music to entertain all the members of the wedding party. The lead singer was amazing and we all had a fab time! Would I book this band again? Absolutely! And if you are thinking about taking that leap of faith too, I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed either.

Thank you for your help and support in creating a great night. My guests were very impressed with your fantastic band. From a personal prospective, I enjoyed every minute of it. Your recommendation for me to sing Suspicious Minds with you was a master stroke. I can’t remember when I last had a buzz like that. I’ve never sung backed by a band before.... it was fantastic. Thank you so much.... that’s a bucket list item well and truly. Thanks again! Regards Dave

I booked Better than blue for my wedding in Richmond. What can I say? Better than blue are quite simply one of the best bands I've EVER seen! As a musician myself I am always critical of bands I see, but not so with Better than blue. Their musicianship is truly awesome and their performance was so stylish. They're also naturally very entertaining guys! Everyone loved them and they did a perfect job on the night. Very very ver highly recommended!
Better than blue were super-professional leading up to our wedding. They arrived in good time on the day and set up very quickly. Their standard of musicianship was fabulous and they judged the guests perfectly. Everyone danced their socks off!
Many of our guests commented about the band following our wedding. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone!
We had Better than blue perform for us at our wedding, following a recommendation from a friend, and we weren’t disappointed! The band were really amazing! They playing a great mix of music including our first dance - which they did beautifully. The dance floor really was packed all night long. Everyone loved them!
Would we recommend them to anyone considering having a live band at their wedding? Do it! You won’t regret it :-)
Thank you guys for making our very special day even more special.
