City Lights were outstanding. They have a good repertoire, great music, extremely flexible. We will definitely book them for our next event.Cathy Thorne - 30th Birthday Party, Private Address
We thought the band were incredibly talented and sounded amazing at Gate Street Barn. Their version of our first dance was amazing!Ben and Rosie Howard - Wedding, Gate Street Barn, Guildford
I was so nervous about the band and worried people wouldn't like them but they were absolutely fantastic - everyone commented on how amazing they were and I cannot thank them enough Hannah Hurry - Wedding, Larmer Tree Gardens
They are a top band, great sound and very professional. The Youtube video is an authentic sample of their act, a big positive when booking a band without seeing them perform live. They set up during the party (later than anticipated) and did it without fuss, which was much appreciated. They came across as very nice people and are excellent musicians/singers. Feedback from everyone at the party was positive about them – we just wished they could have played longer!Peter Shorthouse - Private Party, Somerset House
We wanted a band at the wedding that would be a talking point, get people dancing and were flexible. They were all of these things and more. Several guests have commented on the great choice we made and how much they enjoyed their sets. Worth every penny.Paul & Daran - Wedding, Ufton Court
Hi Tom can I just thank you and you band for a fantastic night on Saturday. Everyone thought you were amazing - you really did a great job and contributed so much to making the day perfect! Well done guys - really appreciated.Rob - Wedding, Newhouse Estate, Wiltshire
5/5 The band were absolutely excellent. The quality of the sound was amazing and our guests absolutely loved them. I would highly recommend this band for any function - fantastic!Holly Thomas & Thomas Britten - Wedding, New House, Wiltshire
We thanked them on the night but Liz and I just wanted to pass on our thanks again to the band for doing such an amazing job. They went down really well and made our day extra special, particularly learning our special request and getting every one up on the dance floor. We had loads of really great comments from guests on just how good they were. We are really happy we booked them and more than happy to recommend them.Rob and Liz - Wedding, Zebon Copse Centre, Hampshire
We absolutely loved City Lights - the music was great and the band were really friendly and easy going :) They were really accommodating and just went with the flow.

5/5 we had an absolute blast on our wedding day. the band were all plus more of what we expected, very professional and sounded great. thanks very much for being part of our very special day.Vicki & Simone - Wedding, Sandbanks Hotel, Dorset
They are a thoroughly charming group of musicians, whose talents are very apparent, as they have a cracking repertoire of songs, which are performed to the highest standard. We chose 3 x 40 mins of music and in between they co-ordinated my daughters playlist and also queued the first dance song. In short, I would highly recommend City Lights for any occasion, they are superb.Nigel Yates - Wedding, Orchardleigh Estate
5/5 - The guys were outstanding, not just their music but also they were so helpful. We had a young group of students performing musical theatre as our cabaret. City lights did so much to help them, without question., including helping with the balance of lights, mics , and performance etc. We were very impressed they were flexible and mixed in with our very special celebrations. We would recommend them highly.Lesley - Corporate, Yatton Rugby Club, Bristol
A great band, perfect for my 50th party and really lovely people too.Gary - 50th, Halstead House
5/5 - Nothing short of AWESOME! Iain (from the sound team) was absolutely fantastic! Tailored Entertainment, you are lucky to have him on your books as is one of the best I have worked with (and I have been in events for the last 15 years). Such a lovely individual who was not only great at making sure the audio was perfect for us (there were quite a few moving parts), he also assisted us with some of the set up given the amount of rain that day! So a BIG THANKS from us to Iain. Please pass it on. Re the band, they were first class. We spent a decent amount of time looking at options but it's always a pleasure to receive such great feedback from guests on the choice of band (and we had A LOT of them) Good modern mixes with old classics that had the dance floor pumping all evening. Special thanks to them all. It definitely made a difference having a supporting vocal. We had a great day and they made it all the more special. Phoebe was great in the run up, making sure all the technical elements were on point. Thanks again. We'll be coming to you for the next event :-)Matthew - Wedding, St George's Hill Golf Club, Weybridge

The band were absolutely fantastic! They learnt and played our first dance song, and did a brilliant job! The dance floor always had someone on it, which is all you can ask for! In any event, we would have no hesitation in recommending the band to anyone we know - they were great!Sophie - Wedding, Gate Street Barn, Surrey
We both just wanted to say that the band was excellent - they were very professional, they helped with getting our friends set up to play our first song; their general performance and the way they got the dance floor going was fantastic. It helped make the evening great for all our guests and we will happily recommend the group to friends and family. I hope they enjoyed playing, thanks again!Anthony & Lauren - Wedding, The Elvetham Hotel, Hook

The band were great and we really enjoyed their performances of all of the songs that we chose. They arrived at the planned time and set up quickly and inconspicuously which was great and were ready to play at the agreed start time.

The band was great! All my guests sang their praises. There was a small glitch with the sound but they were able to fix that really quickly and they played really well. There wasn't a moment when there was no one on the dance floor. I appreciated them allowing some DJing of the playlist as well as we went along the day! Thanks so much!Charlotte - Wedding, Davenport House, Shropshire
