Chris Charlton, Wedding.

We had great service from Alive Network and a suberb performance from the MBB Band they were praised by all our guests and made a perfect wedding day for our daughter and son-in-law complete. We would highly recommend the band.

Richards Wedding, Kettering.

As function musicians ourselves, we knew what we wanted from a band for our wedding – a high quality, entertaining and no hassle band who could play as a trio in the afternoon and a big band in the evening. What The MBB Band offered was all that and more.

Firstly, they’re a great bunch of people, a pleasure to deal with. They’ve got a big repertoire and took on our suggestions with ease. In addition, these guys can play. Seriously. Tight horn section, great back line and an amazing front man – he really puts in a shift vocally at the same time as mastering the crowd.

Our wedding was 700+ and they easily held the attention of the masses. The dance floor was packed and for weeks afterwards we had friends asking where we found such a great band. We’d recommend them as a 10/10 to anybody who’s looking for a wedding band!

Kate Hugh’s wedding feedback, June 2013, York

The music choices available out there for weddings, parties and everything in between are vast and it feels like a real leap of faith. Which is why the Mini Big Band were a complete godsend for our wedding. From the minute we got in touch until the morning after the night before, they couldn’t do enough to help us including gently reminding us of all the things we’d forgotten about. (First dance music?!?!) But all that pales into insignificance compared with the performance itself. They were just brilliant. The effort they put in was fantastic, the response from the crowd was immense and musicians and guests just seemed to feed of each other’s energy! They must have been even more exhausted than us the following day! Everyone, and I mean everyone was up and dancing all night, there wasn’t a chink of light on the dancefloor. There’s no doubt they made the evening a great success. We’ve had endless positive feedback from our guests and can’t thank the boys enough for helping make it more than we’d even dared to hope for. Don’t hesitate, book ‘em!”
