The band were just perfect, I knew as soon as I saw them that we had to have them and they were even better than I expected them to be! Both me and my husband are musicians, so the quality of the music on our day was really important to us, and Bootleg Boogie Band certainly delivered!Jessica Broderick - Wedding, Bradford-On-Avon

5/5 - Great band! Thanks once again for a fantastic day.Anna & James - Wedding, Wotton House, Surrey

Hi, You played at our wedding on May 26th and I wanted to say a huge thank you for such an excellent job! We and all our guests absolutely loved the sets that you played and we had many many compliments of what you did. Thank you very much. I would highly recommend you. Many thanks once again and kind regards. All the best,Richard & Lisa Puddifoot - Wedding, St Lukes, London

Just to add that we thought the band were superb. It was a Sunday wedding and people collected in a number of different rooms so the dancefloor wasn't packed, but that was the vibe we were looking for and the band played with really good intensity throughout. We had lots of positive comments about how good they were.Pay & Helen - Wedding, Fredericks, London

Hello Sam, Thank you for your email. I wanted to get back in touch to say how wonderful the bootleg boogie band were on Saturday. They sounded completely amazing and a huge number of our guests came to tell us how brilliant they thought they were. We were also incredibly glad we went with the full 5 piece band in the end, as the sound was incredible. The band kindly did a cover of a bill withers song for my first dance with my dad, despite me only thinking of it a week before the wedding. It was such a great cover in the end and made for a very special moment. To top this off the band were all genuinely lovely guys. So friendly and chatty. They were also so flexible and accommodating on the night when things hadn't gone slightly to plan with things like cutting the cake and first dance timings, they switched around the set and felt great. I will certainly be reccomending the band to anyone who will listen! I will also reccomened the tailored entertainment site to any friends getting married, as even if the bootleg boogie band isn't their style of music (although I'm not sure who couldn't like them), I think the whole experience from first enquiring to the actual day has be great.Beth and Mike - Wedding, De Vere Theobalds Estate
