The Standing Waves played at our wedding recently in Suffolk, April 2013. The band were AMAZING and everyone commented how great they sounded. Nicky has a beautiful voice and the whole band together sound great. They played a great range of songs and played our first dance, which was lovely to have played live.
HIGHLY recommend this band for any event. Definitely will add the extra touch for your night tio be one to remember - I would hire them again in a second. I just need another event now! Thanks Nicky and the guys for making our wedding super special xx
