"You guys are just FAB! Jamie and the Band learnt our First song wonderfully! Their timings we're perfect which helped put me at ease as I am such a 'Bridezilla' - although on our part there was a slight delay, they had no problem adapting to the situation! I highly recommend these guys for any wedding or event. Good luck and lovely to meet you all"Mr and Mrs D York

"Ok so we've never done this before, getting married that is. But what can we SAY! Jamie and the band really let our mind be at rest with how they dealt with our Wedding from start to finish! Sorry again for my crazy friends and family literally jumping on you guys! they loved you and we did too. I would say we would have you back but we aren't planning on another wedding just yet haha great to meet you all, K & J x" Mr and Mrs J Albright

"Lads, what a night that was! Thank you ALL for making our evening a smash. And thank you for learning our First Dance with such short notice, that song really meant a lot to us. These guys are really worth your money, sure to rock any event you have"Mr and Mrs J Butterfield

"Hi Cartel, thank you for entertaining my clients, I know it wasn't the wildest party you've been to but we honestly, thoroughly enjoyed your show. Also this was my first ever time hosting the event so you did me proud and I think my job is safe :) Good luck for the future! Beth"Beth of Mayer Brown

"Jamie, I'm not sure who my husband loves more, me or YOU!!! anybody reading this we booked Jamie and Joe for the extra acoustic set and it was absolutely beautiful and made our whole day that extra special, they even learnt a special song for my Mum which brought a tear to her eye. can't thank you enough xX"Katie

"A very professional party band, just what we needed for our end of year party. Such a pleasure to work with and you really showed the proof in the pudding. All the best from the Ricoh Group"Ricoh

"We booked you last minute which was crazy, I can't believe how much there is to plan a wedding. BUT you guys really made the evening events so stress free! I would have never thought about a first dance song either let alone how to get guests to the dance floor. Honestly John and I are ever grateful for what you've done. Love to you all X" Susan and John

"We booked The Cartel for our annual event. We recognised Jamie from when he was on The X Factor and had to have him and the band. We we're a little apprehensive as we had never hired a band before but the band exceeded our expectations. A great booking, thank you. And Jamie, you are so much better than Olly Murs so keep on going" Corporate Company Event

"I found the band very friendly and helpful through booking them. They were flexible and worked around the madness of the day events. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend" Dom

"We hired The Cartel for our Daughters Wedding last week and we we're very pleased with our choice. Our Daughter recognised Jamie from The X Factor, however we admit we aren't followers of the show (Sorry Jamie haha) But the whole band we're such professionals and entertained all of our friends and family right until the venue curfew!"Terry and Linda

"If you want a fun, energetic band, here they are!! Lads thank you again for last night, seriously cool dudes. Reminded me of when I used to play with the lads but I'll admit you guys rock with style. Sorry about the delayed communications up to booking, but I can't fault your service and quick responses to me. Take care and rock on"Nigel Marchant

"We booked The Cartel for our weekend Wedding festival, we had 5 other bands playing over the weekend however the band that stood out had to be these chaps. Such great song choices and always smiling and polite to our guests. Thank you again"Mr and Mrs Hope

The Cartel performance at our wedding on September 1, 2018 was absolutely wonderful. Most of our guests have never seen a live band in performance before and they we blown away at how much of a different atmosphere this group brought to our wedding reception. Jamie knows his stuff and was very good at keeping our guests going. It was a Caribbean & Irish wedding and the Caribbean side can sometimes be hard to please especially with music, but The Cartel broke that ice. Thank you guys again for a wonderful performance.James & Odette - Wedding, West Essex Golf Club, London
