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

5/5 - We cannot recommend the Thamesmen more highly, we have had non-stop compliments and praise about them ever since they played our wedding, and they gave us an incredible night of dance-floor packed entertainment. The band members were all really good guys, efficient, reliable and accommodating, and made our first dance a very special one. We couldn't have asked for better, every song got the crowd going and the singing and playing was top notch, and Tailored Entertainment were unstinting in helping us where we needed it and in keeping in touch with any last minute requests and planning. Class act all round.Tim - Wedding, Castle House, Orford

The Thamesmen absolutely smashed it and read the crowd perfectly. The afternoon "acoustic" set was classy and great drinks accompaniment, while the two evening sets were amazing fun. The chaps were chilled out but professional. So many people commented on how good they were and the dance floor was full from start to finish.Daniel & Jenna - Wedding, Kingston Country Courtyard (Dorset)

The Thamesmen were a fantastic addition to our wedding day. They learned a song which kicked in half way through our first dance and resulted in all our guests joining us on the dance floor. It set a fantastic tone for the evening and we have received so much positive feedback about the band. Thanks for a great evening.Ben & Gemma - Wedding, Pennyhill Park Hotel

Absolutely fantastic band - I’ll be recommending to all our friends!Lucy & Aaron - Wedding, Lains Barn, Oxfordshire

Fantastic experience with a band that really knows how to work the audience! Great vocals friendly team behind them too. Thanks so much.Zi Wei Liu - Wedding, The Hurlingham Club London

Band were absolutely amazing thank you. The band performance was incredible and I’m so glad we had them, so thank you because everyone had a brilliant time.Hannah Linnard - Wedding, Field House, Kent

The band were FANTASTIC! They exceeded all expectations, they kept everyone on the dance floor all night and even the venue staff were telling us how impressed they were by them as usually people start to disappear throughout the night but the floor never emptied! All our guests kept telling us how good they were and personally we were really impressed with their sound quality, and how tight and professional they were as musicians, the songs they played were so well done and some I enjoyed better than the original with some cheeky half-time sections. They even had the father of the groom dancing and we were reliably informed he hasn't danced in the 49 years he and his wife have been married! We can't thank them enough, lots of people were asking who they were and we won't hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs a band. Rachel Nicholson & Tom Burden - Wedding, Crown & Cushion, Camberley

The Thamesmen band were fantastic, we had a huge amount of guests and the room we was in was extremely warm, it couldn't have been the easiest gig to play. But, we all loved the band, the music and the amazing atmosphere they created Thank you for helping to make our day the BEST EVER.Victoria Morris - Wedding, Bedford Corn Exchange, Bedford

The band was awesome, they rocked our wedding!! The first dance was amazing with our special request song that they performed impeccable :) Only goods words to say about their wonderful performance.Alexandra and Andrei - Wedding, Romania, Ghermanesti

Brilliant evening was had by all, and the guys played a really big part in that. Thank you.Philip & Annette - Birthday Party, Reigate Manor Hotel, Surrey

We wanted to say thank-you very much indeed to The Thamesmen and Tailored Entertainment. A brilliant set, awesome playing and we had the best time so thank-you so much. The guys were lovely and very accommodating.Karen & Alex - Wedding, Bingham Riverhouse

5/5 - Fantastic band and a great bunch of guys. Fully recommend them.Sam & Katie - Wedding, Wasing Park, Reading

Tailored Entertainment, and The Thamesmen, are responsible for me having the absolute best retirement night ever! I danced and sang to every song - right from the first one, and everyone commented on how wonderful the band was! Their playlist appealed to people of all ages, and the banter with the audience was perfectly pitched. This is the PERFECT party band - if you are lucky enough to get these guys you will have a full dance floor all night, and an unbelievable amount of fun. Tailored Entertainment supported me SO professionally and kindly over the repeated Covid cancellations, and found me The Thamesmen when my new date didn't work for my original choice! Thank you, and if I ever hear of anyone needing a band - I will be immediately insisting they get in contact. Thank you, an outstanding service from all of you!Sue - John Stainer School, Brockley

The band were absolutely fantastic. We quite cheekily asked if they could perform a song not on their repertoire for our first dance, and they did! It was so very special, and the guests loved every minute of their sets. Thanks so much guys, we’ll be recommending you to all of our friends who are due to get married in the next few years!Alex & Jess - Wedding, The Granary Estates, Suffolk

The Thamesmen were fantastic at our wedding last week. We couldn't have picked a better band, they managed to get everyone up on the dance floor and the playlist was brilliant. They played our first dance song beautifully (Elton John, Tiny Dancer), we would definitely recommend the guys add this to their set list! Really nice guys and would definitely recommend - a few guests have already asked who the band were for their weddings! Thanks for making our wedding reception so much fun!Lauren & Alex - Wedding, The Pembroke Arms

The Thamesmen were incredible! Such a great bunch of talented musicians and they really got everyone up and dancing. I cannot say how great they were and we really really appreciate what an amazing job they did.Robert & Anna - Wedding, Notley Tythe Barn, Aylesbury

The band were absolutely fantastic on the day and there were some great comments from the guests. Very good experience from start to finish with Tailored Entertainment.Rob - Wedding, Farbridge Barn, West Sussex

The Thamesmen performed at our wedding at Hedsor House and they were absolutely amazing. All of our guests were saying how fabulous they were! The dance floor was packed, and there was never a dull moment. All of the musicians are super talented, the sound was superb. They read the room well and their set list was excellent. We all had an awesome time all night, so we just wanted to say a huge thank you. Beth & Paul xBeth & Paul - Wedding, Hedsor House, Buckinghamshire

Wow! The Thamesmen were amazing! They had everyone up dancing their entire set! No one sat down. Loved them! My only regret is we didn’t have them on for longer! Please thank the guys for making our day rock.Helen - Wedding, The East Quay, Kent

The Thamesmen were amazing especially given we had to have date changes. Got everyone on their feet and just the best time was had.Laura - Wedding, Morden Hall, London

Would highly recommend The Thamesman. They created a great atmosphere, very talented at what they do. Very accommodating . Everyone loved the entertainment and only had good comments to make. Overall couldn’t fault them, I’m very happy with their service. 10/10. Thank you for making the night so special.Kate - Birthday Party, King's Oak Hotel, Essex

We cannot thank The Thamesmen enough for an incredible time at our wedding. They set up discreetly during dinner, provided us with microphones for speeches and performed our first dance song perfectly. They were the ultimate professionals performing in a sloped marquee. Following that, they provided us with 2 amazing sets which our guests loved, everyone said how great they were and how much they enjoyed the music. Our dance floor was popping!! So many guests commented that they had never seen a dance floor like it at a wedding. We are so so thrilled that we decided to go with The Thamesmen, they gave us memories we will never ever forget. Can't say thank you enough!Rachel & Sebastian - Wedding, Private Residence, Devon

The Thamesmen were the best band we could have wished for! Brilliant people and wonderful musicians that had the party going all night! Thank you very much The Thamesmen!Lizzie & Aidan - Wedding, Brympton House, Somerset

We thought The Thamesmen were absolutely excellent! They sounded fantastic and their repertoire was perfect for us as it catered for all age groups. They were flexible with timings on the day, were professional and promote, and we had a great time. We would definitely recommend them for any wedding.Katie & Johnny - Wedding, Rivervale Barn, Hampshire

The Thamesmen were great; we loved having them perform at our wedding. They sounded great and worked so hard to keep the energy high and everyone on their feet. They were also so polite to us and worked so hard to help us get a live version of our first dance - which was no small feat. I would book them for another event in a heart beat - I hope they can play our wedding anniversary next year!Phoebe & Robert - Wedding, Pynes House, Exeter

The band were phenomenal. They got everyone up and dancing, especially on the second set. The first dance was perfect live. They really couldn't have done better. Please pass my thanks on to them, they really were brilliant. Someone described the dance floor as a 'moshpit' when the first dance was done.Ollie & Francesca - Wedding, Southdowns Manor, Hampshire

Thank you so much for your support and help arranging this great band! EVERYONE has been raving about their excellent song choices, performance and outstanding talent; we had the most fun dancing the night away.Clare & Glenn - Wedding, Wickham Estate, Hampshire

The band were fantastic, we had a 2 piece acoustic duo during our dinner which was lovely and then in the evening they were joined by more band members for the main event. They were brilliant, and had a full dance floor from beginning to end, we had the best wedding party and they were a big part of this. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.Michelle & Conor - Wedding, Lympe Castle, Kent

Tailored Entertainment are an incredible service, they are super attentive, keep in touch regularly and throughout the booking process. If I ever want to book a band again, I will be going straight to Chloe who assisted us through most of the booking process. I was really impressed how much they followed up and how kind everyone I spoke with was. For example, when we were trying to find a first dance choice, they were so supportive and helpful despite us making extra work as we were so particular about what we wanted. The Thamesmen performed at our wedding and were simply delightful. They made sure to call me a few days before and make introductions and, on the day again. They were amazing musicians but also made a huge effort to keep an electric feeling in the room and get everyone bouncing off the walls. All my guests have raved about their incredible sound and how cool our band was. We really appreciated how hard they worked to get our first dance perfect for live performance - which was sung divinely. We would love to book them again for a future event, hopefully for our first-year anniversary!Phoebe & Rob - Wedding, Slindon House, Arundel, West Sussex

The band were excellent and extremely professional. Their performances were both excellent! I would recommend The Thamesmen and Tailored Entertainment.Leana & Edward - Wedding, Botleys Mansion, Chertsey, Surrey

Firstly thank you so much for all the hard work you did and the band did on our wedding day. We had such a great day and honeymoon. It was lovely to have the band be part of our special day. They did a fantastic job, all our guests loved it. It all sounded amazing.Judy & Louis - Wedding, Froyle Park, Alton

Thank you for helping arrange everything this weekend, the band were amazing. Please pass on the thank you to The Thamesmen from Emmy and myself as everyone who attended has mentioned how great they were.Emmy & Charles - Wedding, Rhinefield House Hotel, Hampshire

I had already heard & experienced The Thamesmen when they played at my sisters wedding so I knew they were outstanding. They did not disappoint this time, absolutely flawless performance. Incredibly talented musicians and vocalists. Loved the songs, the chat in between and they just made my wedding incredible. Thank you so much! All the guests absolutely loved them too & I will always recommend them. Lorna & Eddie xxxLorna & Eddie - Wedding, Fabridge, Chichester, West Sussex
