The band had such great energy and every song made you want to get up and dance - the dance floor was always full and so many people told us what a great time they had.

The balance between old and new songs was also perfect and got everyone up on their feet.

The communication during the night was excellent with the band happy to make announcements for us. The back and forth with the crowd was also brilliant! We would definitely book them again no questions asked! And even had guests asking where they could book them as they were so good! Once again, thanks guys! I'm sure we will see each other again!

Ben & Sarah Wedding Reception, Southampton, July 2015

Just a quick line to say what an amazing job Hard to Handle did at our wedding. The music selection was absolutely epic, and the quality of the musicians was first class. The dance floor was full all night, even when my new wife and I sang terribly. We didn't know many of the words to the song we "sang" as the band practically pulled us onto the stage; but it still sounded fantastic with just the band playing an "instrumental"!!! Thanks again, we would love to hire you again.

Carol & Chris Wedding Reception, Cambridge, June 2015

Thanks so much to the band for Saturday night. They were awesomely good!!! Loved the delivery, song selection and their humour. We had high hopes having listened online and expectation was way exceeded! Please pass on our thanks.

Sarah & Joel Wedding Reception, Southampton, Jul 2014

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding last Friday!

We had a truly fabulous time and many guests have commented on how great the evening atmosphere was.

Nikki & Claudio Wedding Reception, Milton Keynes, Jun 2014

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding, the whole booking process was so easy from the moment we first contacted you. The band learned our first dance song brilliantly and throughout the whole set they made it really personal and lovely. All the guests commented on how great the guys were, it really made the evening a night to remember. Thank you so much!

Audi - Leicester Corporate Event, Leicester Audi, Jun 2014

A huge thank you from all the team at Leicester Audi for providing us with an amazing 2 hours of live music for our Summer Ball. From the swift set up to the multiple encores at the end of the night, it was a truly great experience. You got everyone on dance floor and even got some playing in the band too!

You were fantastic to work with in the planning stages and on the night, we felt like we were going to be very well looked after. Great musicians, great music, great band. We won't hesitate to recommend you to everyone and anyone!!!!

Rachel & David Wedding Reception, Mar 2014

I just wanted to send a message of enormous thanks to you and all of the Hard to Handle band for making our wedding evening so wonderful. So many people commented on how great the band were - it was exactly what we wanted.

The band were very prompt and efficient (despite us running a little behind schedule on the day) and covered a range of music that got everyone up and dancing. We could not be more pleased with how it went. The whole process, from booking the band to the wedding evening, was completely stress and hassle free so thank you.

Trish Deeney Wedding Reception, Feb 2014

Thank you for making my daughters wedding the best ever. You made the day. You were amazing, the music you played got everyone dancing, guests age ranged 5 - 85 years and the dance floor was never empty. I would recommend you for sure. Thank you for giving us an amazing night to remember!!!!

Neil & Emma Wedding Reception, Jan 2014

We just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding! Everyone thought you were amazing and kept asking where we found you. It was brilliant to have so many people up on the dance floor for the whole time and your professional service meant we didn't have to worry about a thing and could just enjoy the celebrations! We will certainly recommend you to others.

Amy & Andrew Wedding Reception, Nov 2013

Thank you so much for making our wedding day at Stubton Hall unforgettable! We both had an amazing time and all of our guests commented on how brilliant the entertainment was. Thanks again!

Darren & Sharon Wedding Reception, Oct 2013

We just wanted to say a big big thank you to you guys. You were awesome! Not only did you sing a brilliant version of Adele's "Love Song" but also were amazing with my other request of Green Day's "Good Riddance"!!!!

We haven't stopped hearing people say how good you guys were! We loved how the music you play just got everyone dancing and how varied it was. Will be recommending you for sure! Thank you for helping to give us an amazing night to remember!!!!

Michael & Emily Wedding Reception, May 2013

We just wanted to write to say how fantastic you guys were playing our wedding reception. Having not heard you play before we did not know what to expect but you blew us and our guests away with the fantastic music!

We had loads of positive comments from our guests about the band. Thank you also for putting in so much work and tailoring the music to what we requested. We had a fantastic time and loved how everyone was on the dance floor. THANK YOU!!

Stefan & Tara Wedding Reception, Jul 2013

We would like to say thank you so much for your performance at our wedding. You guys were truly brilliant! Your rendition of our first dance was fantastic (although it wasn't enough to save our terrible dancing) and your set lists for the whole evening were great!

Everybody at the wedding thought you were amazing and the way you interacted with the guests, going around the room with your wireless guitars to get them dancing was inspiring.

We had so many comments about just how good the entertainment was and I think the fact you made everyone cheer so loud that it shut the power off is a testament to that. It makes us sad to say that we're not planning on getting married again, but if we ever have another large event, you will most certainly be the first people we will be booking!

Chris & Hannah Wedding Reception, Aug 2013

A big big thank you for playing at our wedding in Cheltenham at Ellenborough Park. You were fantastic from start to finish and everyone loved you!! We would not hesitate to book you again in the future for parties etc! Thank you so much!!

Jaz & Ben Wedding Reception, Apr 2013

Please thank the band for me for the excellent performance they put on at my wedding. The first dance that I had been dreading was fab - the band kept it a sensible length as promised and played and sang it so beautifully. I will always remember it, and didn't actually want the ground to swallow me up after all!

The music throughout the night was a big hit with the guests. Everyone enjoyed it and said how good the band were - really professional, not some half-arsed local band like they were probably expecting!! I personally didn't know what to expect - I'd heard the stuff on the website and thought it sounded great but you never really know what you are getting until you hear a band live. Though I was optimistic given my professional dealings with you. Anyway, I was so relieved because as it turned out they were fantastic!!! There were people dancing throughout the night, led on by the bridesmaids, and the band did several encores at the end which was a real crowd pleaser.

I was also a little taken aback when I paid their tab the following morning - it was about 6 pounds. How did the three of them get through the evening without drinking more than that??? Anyway, it was appreciated that they didn't fleece the tab, but I think they may have gone a little too far the other way! Still my wallet appreciated it...

Thank you, thank you thank you - your band made it the most wonderful evening. We were so glad we chose you and cannot recommend you highly enough.

Jenna & Ben Wedding Reception, Dec 2012

From the first time I spoke to you, you did everything to demonstrate your experience of playing at weddings, your professionalism and value for money. You certainly didn't disappoint! Your rendition of our first dance was fantastic! The modern twist was exactly what we were looking for!

I cannot believe how many guests have been in contact already to tell us how great you were - we only got married 4 days ago! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and certainly will do in the future. Thanks again and all the best for the future.

Tracey & Pete Wedding Reception, Oct 2012

We just wanted to drop you a quick message to thank the band for doing such a great job at our wedding reception (October 2012).

The guys were friendly, fun and professional. The version of "Nothing Else Matters" that they played for our first dance was perfect and the rest of the evenings song choices were spot on...everybody had a brilliant time.

We had so many compliments on the band and everybody was commenting how good they were. We have a relative getting married next year and she was particularly interested so obviously we will pass on your contact details to her. We had a great night and so did our guests and we hope that the guys in the band did too.

Tim & Victoria Wedding Reception

Thankyou so much for your excellent performance during our wedding. You were complete professionals and everybody there thought you were brilliant. You made the first dance for us by playing it live. Thankyou so much for making our evening.

Michelle & John Wedding Reception

We just want to say a big thank you to the guys you were amazing. Everyone was up dancing from the moment they got there right through until the end of the reception. Loads of people complimenting the band and a few asking for details so hopefully get a few more bookings for you!

Once again we can't thank you enough for a great atmosphere and great music.

Tim & Rachael Wedding Reception

Rachael and I wanted to say thank you for an amazing performance on the night of our wedding and the thorough professionalism and flexibility you showed from the time we booked the band.

Our day didn't go to plan, as you probably remember (I didn't expect to be doing my speech to anyone but day guests, let alone the evening guests and the band) but the fact you were so flexible and played for the best part of 2 hours solid, helped make it the fantastic day that it was.

Greg & Liz Cronshaw Wedding Reception

Both myself and Liz just wanted to send you a quick email before we jet off on our honeymoon. I have to say I can't stress how brilliant the guys were at our wedding....the dance floor was busy all night, and everyone who attended the wedding was very complimentary...in fact at the end of the night there was a queue for business cards by our guests. They made it very personal and very special and they were a perfect part of a day we will never forget. The acoustics and vocals during the actual ceremony and the wedding breakfast was second to none, everything they did was exactly how we imagined, the hotel duty manager was also impressed and said they were a fabulous band. So let me thank you once again for your absolute professionalism and a very accomplished band. I will certainly be recommending you in the future.

Nick & Layla Wedding Reception

We had a cracking day... thanks to you guys, everyone was up and dancing.

Alex StoppardCorporate Event

When we decided on Hard to Handle for our shareholder function we couldn't have picked a better band. Compared to previous years, the band was simply in another class. Very entertaining, superb music, couldn't have been better. I would recommend you to anyone.

Lisa & MartinWedding Reception

We booked you on recommendation from friends, and I'm glad to say you didn't disappoint. Up until I spoke to you, I was having a nightmare booking a band for my wedding. But you were brilliant! Very professional and courteous. The band were great and everyone was talking about how much they enjoyed the songs you played. Thanks a lot guys.

Alex SylvesterCorporate Event, Orange

Thank you so much for an amazing night, the band was fantastic and got everyone up Dancing and singing!! Thanks so much!

Sharon AnsonManchester Rugby Sevens

Thank you to you and the guys for a fantastic performance on Saturday evening of the event. We received a great deal of positive comments and feedback from people. You went down really well with the crowd and everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves. All of us at Manchester Rugby Sevens thought you were the perfect choice. On a personal note, I found you really easy to deal with and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to book a band. I think it goes without saying that we will always consider you for other events we are organising.

James & Charlotte BainbridgeWedding Reception

Hard To Handle were absolutely fantastic and were exactly what we wanted. They were really nice guys who were extremely accommodating. We had a brilliant day and thanks for helping to make it so fantastic.

Andrea & StuartWedding Reception

Our friends recommended you for our wedding. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Hard to Handle. I was worried that with so many guests we wouldn't be able to please everyone with the choice of music, but you just got up there and everyone danced from start to finish. I hope you didn't mind my mom and dad getting up on stage and singing with you - they just enjoyed it so much.

Catherine AndersonCorporate Event

After a few problems with last years' entertainment, we needed to find a band that would compliment the atmosphere we wanted to create for our awards ceremony for this year. Hard to Handle were recommended to us and I can honestly say that they were perfect. They were very aware of the need to work within the framework of the awards and were onstage on time and provided a superb nights' entertainment for all. Thank you very much.

Peter Knust

The band were phenomenal - everyone enjoyed them and mentioned again and again how good they were - they were also very professional. We will of course recommend you to everyone.

Abigail & Phil McKennellWedding Reception

To say that we were impressed by the band was an understatement. They were professional from beginning to end. From the first contact to meeting them on the night. We had already agreed their playlist with them, which suited us down to the ground - we had quite a range of ages from 18 - 75! Everybody loved them. People were dancing from beginning to end of the night. They even learnt a song for us and performed it fantastically - even if it did make me cry!! We just wanted to thank you and pass this on to the band to say they really made our night very special indeed. Either of us would not hesitate to recommend the band to anybody as indeed we already have done. Thanks a million!

Maria & TomWedding Reception

Tom and I just wanted to say how much we and our guests enjoyed Hard to Handle. I can't imagine what our wedding day would have been like without your Wonderful Music, I loved the way you encouraged everyone to get up onto the dance floor. The best thing was that both my granddad and my little niece were dancing - he's 70 and she's 14, so you must be doing something right. Thanks!

Graham StokesCorporate Event

Many thanks to Hard to Handle for performing at our event. I'd heard lots of good things from our previous events organiser about yourselves and I'm pleased to say, they're all true. I found you very professional and accommodating to deal with and the entertainment the band provided was second to none.

Jamie & Paul HawkinsWedding Reception

Thank you so much for an amazing night, the band was fantastic and got everyone up Dancing and singing!! Thanks so much!
