They had the audience entertained from start to finish with a good mix of old and new songs as well as the traditional wedding classics.

“I have to say that 8 Ball were amazing. They really got the crowd going and the dance floor was constantly full of people dancing and having fun. The 2 1 hour sets absolutely flew by. We couldn't be more happier with them. I hope they enjoyed themselves as well. We were also very impressed with how the boys conducted themselves, very personable and professional. We're aware that one of our guests have already recommended them on to a friend, who has since made a booking; and we ourselves wouldn't hesitate in booking them again should a future occasion arise. Thanks again to all of you.”Carl - Wedding - Sopley Mill, Dorset

"5/5 - The band were fantastic - extremely friendly and helpful. Music was brilliant. Would highly recommend!"Kat Jones - Wedding, Sopley Mill, Hampshire

We came across 8 ball randomly whilst trying to find a wedding band online. We listened to a couple of their tracks and it seemed to be the type of thing we wanted for our wedding. We cannot believe how lucky we got with choosing this band! They began the evening by playing a brilliant version of semi sonic, secret smile that they had prepared for our first dance. They then proceeded to play fantastic tune after fantastic tune and had a packed dance floor all night long. All my wedding guests have been raving about the band and I cannot remember a wedding reception where people were enjoying themselves quite as much as they were on this night! Thank you so much for your amazing music and charisma, I am so glad we chose you as our wedding band.Lucy Derham - Wedding, East Horton Golf Club, Eastleigh

Awesome, professional band! Our wedding guests are still talking about them now xxDebbie Pettie – Wedding, Ageas Bowl Stadium, Southampton

Thanks again for recommending 8-Ball for my NYE party last night… I was nothing but impressed! The lads were punctual, polite & professional & they had the mess members on the dancefloor all evening. I have received lots of positive feedback from people who attended last night & they were all complimentary about the band. Thank you for your communication & assistance with this booking, I have a busy social calendar in my mess so hopefully we can do business again in the future. I spoke to the band members before they left last night & I hold regular band nights/balls etc…and 8-Ball were amongst the best I’ve seen!Stephen Micallef - Army event, Gosport

Everything was great!! From the beginning everything was so easy to organise with great communication and feedback from the agency which really took the stress out of it all. On the day the band were absolutely perfect! The music was fantastic, exactly what we wanted and the performance of our first dance song in particular was great!!!! The dancefloor was full for the entire night and all of our guests had a great time, so many of them have told us it was the best wedding band that they had heard! The band themselves were also very friendly and helpful, really working with the other suppliers to help make things go smoothly. We had so much fun throughout the night and really could not have asked for anything else from the band and cannot compliment them enough!Ross and Elena - Wedding, Taylors Farm

We both would like to say we and all our guests loved 8-Ball, the dance floor was always filled and everyone said how amazing they were!! They truly made our evening even more perfect thank you soo soo much.Erika - Wedding. Vetnor Botanic Gardens

Thank you to the band for a wonderful show. They were absolutely amazing. The feedback we got from our guests was amazing regarding them and I think there will be more business coming there way.

I would highly recommend the band to anyone.Mr & Mrs Harvey - Wedding, The Kings Arms, Dorset

5/5/ - 8 Ball were absolutely fantastic on Saturday night! They made the party go with a swing and everybody had a great time on the dance floor. The boys were super polite and professional and really knew how to play a good tune. They responded brilliantly to the guests and atmosphere, and chose a great playlist for both sets. Lots of friends have said that they thought the band were brilliant and where did I find them! So thank you very much 8 Ball and Tailored Entertainment - you made my party one to remember!!Philly and Blair - 50th Birthday Party, The Courtyard, Winchester

5/5 Unbelievably amazing band - so friendly, reliable and made the evening a fantastic party. Everyone thought the music was brilliant. We can't thank them enough and highly recommend to anyone.Gemma Athey - Wedding, Rectory Farm, Chichester

The band were absolutely fantastic. All our guests loved them. They were great fun and full of energy. Our first dance (James Arther- Say You Won’t let go) and the father and daughter dance (The Kooks- Junk of the Heart) were perfect. They really made the evening reception. The atmosphere they helped create was incredible. We really could not recommend them enough. They even happily took a few Polaroid snaps with us!Kayleigh - Wedding, Southdowns Manor, Petersfield

5/5 8-Ball Band were absolutely fantastic on our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a better band. They were excellent, vibrant, energetic, polite and very friendly.
