5/5. They were four very charming and personable young men, who we had some dealings with before the event, in terms of set up and tech stuff. On the day they arrived and quietly set up, with no demands and were very grateful to us for all the support they needed. They played really well and everyone on the night had a great time! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. They were a pleasure to have at what was a very special evening for us, celebrating the Haslemere Thespians 80th year.Jenny Manville - Private Party, The Haslemere Hall, Haslemere

They kept a mixed age, international audience thoroughly entertained during both one-hour setsMichael Brooks - International Corprate Event, Tanners London

They were fantastic !!! We loved the band they were so good . Everyone commented that they were such brilliant entertainment . I didn't have time to thank them personally so can you say thank you for us please .Tracie Evans - Wedding, Birtsmorton Court, Malvern

Laura and I would like to thank the band so much for Thursday's entertainment. Neither of us feel we made the most of them, what with all the mingling and the night-time photographs being taken, but everyone had a great time and said how good they were! We were impressed by the videos on the website and they were great on the night. Please pass on our messages, I didn't get a chance to say this to them face-to-face and I wouldn't want them to go without knowing how pleased we were with their work and how much people enjoyed their music.Shaun and Laura - Wedding, Birtsmorton Court, Malvern

The Thamesmen were absolutely fantastic and truly captured the crowd as the dance floor was constantly full at our wedding reception. We had picked the band as we had listened to their music and loved the variety of songs they played, and especially loved their Beatles covers. The band very kindly accepted our request to play a special version of In My Life for our first dance song which has left us and our family and friends with some very special memories. I have received so many compliments from our guests about how great the band were, the music, their talented instrument and singing skills, the song choices, the interaction with the crowd. It all made for a perfect evening of entertainment and I would certainly recommend them to others as we were thoroughly impressed with the bands services.Brooke Daniels - Wedding, Bruisyard Hall

Please pass our thanks on to The Thamesmen - we thought they were brilliant. They were punctual and set up without any fuss. The acoustic set was a brilliant background for the drinks reception after the ceremony. The evening set was awesome - they really read the crowd and their selection was perfect. The DJ service was well worth it too - just wish we could have gone on later into the evening!! We've had loads of comments from our guests about how great they were!Sarah - Wedding,Court Garden Vineyard, Ditchling

The Thamesmen were absolutely brilliant at our wedding, their songs were great, they kept everyone on their feet, kept everyone entertained and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The guys were soo friendly and everyone had an amazing time. We would definitely recommend them to all our freinds and family for any function, as the were first class. Thank you very much to the Thamesmen, you made our wedding evening a perfect success.Mark and Victoria - Wedding, Leeds Castle
