Festival Folk were just awesome! They played at our wedding a few weeks ago and I really cannot thank you all enough for making the evening so memorable, personal and perfect. The band and the team were very professional & personable, they arrived with plenty of time for set up and once they started playing - WOW! All the guests are still talking about how great you were and what a fantastic evening they had, I don't think I left the dance floor all evening and you truly added to making our day so perfect. As having experience planning a wedding, I felt a little nervous not knowing exactly how the band would be as I hadn't seen them in person, however hands down Festival Folk really are fantastic and I would recommend to anyone booking them for an event or very special day. A big thank you to you all we hope to see you again soon at another wedding, or maybe we will plan another party :-)Serena & Tom - Wedding, Wiltshire

THANK YOU, for making our day so perfect and special. We could not have asked for a better day! We are still on cloud nine and we can’t stop looking at all the photos from the day. Everything went so smoothly and all our guests were so impressed by the evenings entertainment. You really know how to get the party started. Our guests could not tear themselves away from the dance floor. It was just a perfect fit for us, the music, your personalities, your professionalism. The service you provided is a credit to the hard work and dedication you put into your job. I know you must have hundreds of weddings but you made us feel like we were the only ones! We honestly cannot thank you enough for all your hard work. I hope our guests weren’t too crazy, many have said that it’s the best wedding they have ever been to! Please do pass my message onto all the team so they are aware of what an asset you are to all the couples you entertain for. Mr & Mrs Barnbrooke - Wedding, Southend Barns, Chichester

We just wanted to pass on a quick message to the band because they were AMAZING!! Festival Folk absolutely made our wedding, every single song was brilliant and the dance floor was full from start to finish. Cannot recommend these guys enough, we have had so many comments from our guests saying they are the best wedding band they have ever heard. We just wish we could do it all again, thank you!!!Charlotte & James - Wedding, Hidden Valley, Godalming, Surrey

Tailored Entertainment: Responsive to emails - very clear about what you needed from us and the band info sheet for song selections etc. was very intuitive. Had a few email conversations about set structure and learning a first dance which we sent well in advance and had prompt and sensible responses to - no concerns! Festival Folk: Excellent fun. Clearly understood the feel we were going for and created a fantastic set based around that. Although our first dance song choice needed a bit of interpretation to fit with their arrangement they managed it perfectly and honestly I'd say it should be included in their repertoire! Arrived on time, set up quietly, did one full song (not from set) as sound check with no additional noise made. Great crowd interaction, slick set with zero gaps between songs, played 2 full sets of great choices. Loved it!Oliver Barker - Wedding, Elmore Court, Elmore

The band were incredible, so friendly and professional. We are thinking of throwing a party just so we can hire them again! Thank you to all involved, such an easy arrangement from beginning to end.Charlotte Reeves - Wedding, Millbridge Court, Surrey

Please pass on the most massive thank you to Festival Folk ever! They did the most amazing job entertaining our guests, the roaming set in the sunshine was beautiful and they got every one up dancing in the evening!! It's always a little worrying when you've never seen a band before, and doing your first dance to a version you've never heard but we were so so happy we did as it was amazing!\ Everyone keeps asking us where we found our band as they were amazing. They really really made our wedding! Dominic Upton - Wedding, Millbridge Court, Surrey

They were absolutely incredible, everybody absolutely loved them and people are still asking about them now!Jade & James - Wedding, The Kingscote Barn, Tetbury

5/5 - The band were absolutely fantastic, and the guests had nothing but positive words to say about them, they really made our evening what it was and it wouldn't have been the same without them. Erin and Rya at Tailored Entertainment have been a great help too during all the planning, and helping adapt our plans in the forever changing restrictions. Thank you so much for everything!!Adam - Wedding, Upwaltham Barns, West Sussex

Wow, what can I say, you nailed it. It was the perfect band for the perfect venue. They got the guests up and dancing, and kept them up! A great variety of music. We have had nothing but praise for the band from our guests, and I think everyone enjoyed letting their hair down!Matthew & Emily - The Oak Grove, Upchurch

Everything has been so smooth throughout the whole process of booking the band for our wedding. I was extremely impressed with Festival Folk, they went above & beyond to make our day special. There were incidents with power cuts at the venue but the band were amazing and carried on with an acoustic set while we were trying to get the power back on. All the guys were lovely, so I can honestly say I had the best experience and would definitely recommend Festival Folk to everyone. Thank you again for helping make our day amazing!Lauren - Wedding, Lynsted Park, Sittingbourne

The band were just amazing - we couldn’t have hoped for better. So lovely, kind, considerate and talented. They set up and left without any fuss and put on a spectacular show that Josie would have loved. I had at least 4 people asking who they were so they could book them for other events. Can you thank them all again so much, from the bottom of my heart.Laura - Celebration of Life, Kent

Festival Folk were sensational on our wedding day - amazing musicians, professional and patient (with children, timing delays and inebriated wedding guests!). We received many compliments about the band - their playlist was fantastic and got everybody dancing. They really helped to make our big day incredibly special. I have also been very impressed with Tailored Entertainment - from our initial enquiries right up to our wedding day they communicated clearly, were very helpful and always responded to emails promptly. I will definitely be recommending them and Festival Folk to friends getting married in the future. Thank you!Clare - Wedding, The Night Yard, Canterbury

Festival Folk surpassed all expectations, and what a lovely group of lads! Their performance on the day was fantastic, the effort they made for our first dance was spectacular and they have received nothing but the highest praise from all of our guests. We will gladly book them again for any future events and will be recommending them, as will all of our guests! Tailored Entertainment were equally professional and diligent with their communication in the lead-up to the wedding, and in general we couldn't be happier. Thank you everyone for making the process both easy and pleasant in what can otherwise be a stressful time, and thanks again to the band for helping take the day from a good one to a great one.James & Katie - Wedding, Beccles

Festival Folk were excellent on the night and kept the dance floor busy for the whole evening, even during the power cut. We have received many comments about how impressive they were to keep playing without any power or lights! We were a little bit behind our timings but the band were very accommodating and allowed us to edit the set list on the go to make sure all of our favourites were included.Elizabeth & Jack - Wedding, Nettlestead Place, Kent

The band were honestly incredible, everyone was commenting on how good they were. The whole process from booking to the wedding was seamless, so thank you.Jemma & Tom - Wedding, Winters Barn, Kent

Festival Folk are amazing. The guys were genuinely lovely and so professional. Everybody commented how awesome the band were! Family and friends who don't normally dance were up having a great time all thanks to the band. The set list was perfect and fit our vibe. We can't thank you enough, it really made our wedding.Gemma - Wedding, Barn Drift, Norfolk

Sam and I just wanted to say how AMAZING the bad were yesterday! Their acoustic set at the drinks reception was great and set such a lovely mood to the day. The two sets they played in the evening was absolutely fantastic! We had some many friends and family complementing how brilliant they were and they had the dance floor full the whole time. Thank you so much for being a part of making our wedding the best day we’ve ever had.Becca & Sam - Wedding, Elmley National Nature Reserve, Kent

If you’re looking for a band to play at your wedding or any other function, I strongly recommend Festival Folk. They kept people on the dance floor with their high energy, skilled musicianship and fantastic repertoire of songs. We couldn’t be more happy with booking them for our special day. Tailored Entertainment were highly professional and made arranging and coordinating music for our wedding day so easy. They offered great communication with their swift responses to any questions we has. I would encourage you to book through them where you can.Dan & Megan - Wedding, Odo's Barn, Kent

What can we say about the band, they were amazing! From the roaming set to the main event we were blown away! We had so many compliments about them and all the guys were so nice and friendly - they 100% made our day and the first dance song they did for us was perfect! Even the venue wanted to ask for their details to add to their recommended band list. We wouldn't hesitate to book them for future parties!Beth & Thomas - Wedding, The Old Cow Shed, Leceistershire
