Literally cannot recommend this band enough! They were absolutely brilliant at our wedding (the videos don’t do them justice!) and the range of songs was fab! So many guests at our wedding commented about how good they were and everyone was on the dancefloor, irrespective of how much they thought they liked Big Band music. From an admin point of view, Chris was really helpful and responsive and it was a really easy process. I would 100% recommend anyone else to book them for any event you are planning
I just wanted to send a quick message to say a huge thank you to you and the guys. We got a huge amount of compliments about how good the band were! I was probably more of a appreciative listener than dancer most of the evening but it sounded huge!
Thank you so much,
As you can imagine, today has been a day of rest😂 but I wanted to email you before the day was out.
We just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday. As you know, we booked you before we even knew the date or the venue. I wasn’t even sure we’d be able to find anything like a big band for the wedding and it was actually Rhiannon that managed to find you on a Google search. I’m so very glad she did.
Whilst the videos you post are incredible, they still don’t do you all enough justice for how fantastic it is to be able to hear you in person. The sound of just 10 musicians is immense! It was great to be able to have our first dance played you guys, even if we ourselves wobbled through it a little bit!
You were all the highlight of our day (apart from the ceremony of course 😉) and I’m sure you were for many of our other guests. I can’t think of any better way of rounding off an already perfect day. Please pass on our thanks to all of your team.
I think we might have to keep an eye on when you’re playing in the Italian in Leeds to be able to see you at a more public function.
Thank you so much again,
Chris (and Rhiannon)
Well, what an experience having the Mini Big Band play at our wedding in the Cotswolds! Each and every one of our guests agreed that they were the highlight of the night, and that certainly rings true for us as well!
In addition to the brilliant sets they played, they were so easy to work with on the night, and their flexibility and guidance as to when we should start up for the second set in particular made our lives as easy as possible.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a special live music experience for an event, and I truly hope that I’m lucky enough to see them play again in the near future!
Wow! Its genuinely difficult to describe how good the Mini Big Band are until you see them live.
We were looking for a Frank Sinatra / Michael Bublé style band to play at our wedding and stumbled across the Mini Big Band’s videos on YouTube, when watching the videos we thought they sounded brilliant but to actually have them perform live at your wedding is something else.
When I first reached out to Chris and the team, the communication couldn’t have been any better, we had a big Indian wedding with quite a lot of different things going on throughout the day and Chris helped us out so much with recommendations of timings and where they would play etc. I always had it on my Bucket List to sing live with a a full brass band so I thought I’d reach out to Chris and ask him the cheeky question ‘could I steal the mic for a song’, Chris was completely supportive and asked me what song I wanted to sing, when I told him it was one that wasn’t in their repertoire, they actually went out of their way to learn the song! I was then able to sing the song to my wife live on our wedding day which went down so well and will stay a memory forever. We got the impression they had a great time at the wedding too and it felt like they where our guests rather than our band, Chris, I have some brilliant photo’s of you guys on the 360 camera to send to you guys haha!
UPDATE: Its been a few months since our wedding now and still every time we speak to any of our guests about our big day they still say the same thing ‘who were the band!?’, to say you were one of the highlights of our big day is an understatement.
I genuinely couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough, if you are even considering hiring them for your event, don’t even think about it, just book.
Thank you all again for such and amazing experience, I hope we get to see you at an event soon and I can sit back and enjoy your performance without the stress of the wedding!
Let me know if you need a stand in singer any time.. I will always be on call!
This band is beyond fantastic. They performed incredibly and are so in sync. They kept my wedding swinging all night and were so flexible when working with us at our DIY wedding I knew we’d made the right choice. Thank you again Mini Big Band, you were incredible.
We booked The Mini Big Band for our wedding in May this year. It was one of the highlights of our day and the entertainment was exceptional. It was a hit with our guests and the dance floor was never empty. Having originally set a date for June 2020, our day was delayed twice over and Chris and the band remained understanding and flexible. I would highly recommend these guys for any event, for their fun, talent and professionalism.
If you’re looking for an awesome five star band, look no further! Top lads who played our wedding with the lounge trio followed by the full band and it was a fantastic day from start to finish. Brilliant musicians, up for a good time, professional and communication was top notch including help with timings etc.
I want to create an event just to book these guys again. 10/10!
Thank you SO MUCH to the whole band for their incredible performance last night – everyone hasn’t stopped raving about how amazing you guys were and you totally made our wedding day.
April and Andrew (Luke!)
Thank you so much for an incredible day/night at our wedding on Saturday. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did (and everyone else). We have had so so many wonderful comments about you guys including people that could hear from down the village! Sorry we were so rowdy and your dressing room was a tent which turns out not everybody can stand up in (sorry Steve!) but we really had the most amazing time and it made our day! We hope you haven’t been put off returning to Ashover in the future by all the naked men.
Many thanks,Mr and Mrs Hayes!
