Testimonials

"Good morning! I am the wedding coordinator referred to in Gavin's testimonial following his brilliant 40th birthday celebration at Reid's in Billericay on 24th September 2016. It's true, I've seen many, many bands as I've been a wedding and event co-ordinator for 17 years and you are by far the best I've ever seen. "

Tracy Hall, Event co-ordinator, Billericay, Essex

"We had an absolute ball on our wedding night and that was definitely due to you guys. The music was brilliant and the flexibility when I requested a song and when you allowed one of our guests to serenade us was most appreciated.
The variety of music we could choose from was great and allowed us to pick something for everyone - although I don’t think I managed to leave the dance floor all night!
We thought you did a fantastic job and really looked the part and it felt like you were playing for most of the evening apart from a short break."

Lauren & Nick, Wedding

"Hi John,

I've been meaning to email since the wedding just to say thank you! You were all great. So many of our guests complimented you all on your performance and how you got everyone up dancing. The song choices were great. We will also write a review as you were great

We were also really pleased with your timekeeping and setting up. We didn't even realise you'd arrived so that was really good. I know that a friend of mine took some pictures of you playing and a video I think, would you like me to send them on?

Thanks again"

Emma, Brockenhurst, Wedding, 13th April 2017

"These guys are absolutely, hands down, fantastic! I really couldn't recommend them enough. They knew exactly how to get the crowd up and dancing and made our NYE a great success - it wouldn't have been half as good without them! Plus everyone loved the way they took requests and played songs that people actually wanted to hear! They are so professional and flexible with what you need/want.

Thank you so much to John and all the band - you really are amazing!"

Alicia, Jacksons Restaurant, Wokingham, New Year's Eve Party

"Many thanks to John and the band, fantastic evening!!! All the guests thought you were great and even said your instrument playing skills covered my bad singing attempt at Dakota!!!! We're thinking of doing a regular 'theme' every other month and I hope you'll be up for it again?
Once again many many thanks. You made Chris's 30th very special!"

David, Father of Birthday Boy, Reading, 30th Birthday, 7th January 2017

"Wanted to say thank you so much for being so amazing. You made our wedding so much fun and I'm so glad you all enjoyed yourselves too. Thank you for being so brilliant, we've had so many comments about what a great band you were. My sister's boyfriend said it was so amazing how much you sounded like the different bands/artists and how fab Lisa's voice is and my boss has said he is going to recommend you to his daughter who is getting married in Oxford next year. You were all so lovely and fun and relaxed yet completely professional. We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone. Also, Tom never dances (that's why we didn't have a first dance) so his mum is still in shock about how much of the night he spent on the dance floor!"

Rowena and Tom, Wedding, The Vintry, London, 16th July 2016

"Thank you so much for your performance at our wedding. You guys were far better than we hoped for and performed with great energy and talent. Many of guests said how impressed they were with you and how much better the live music was than the standard DJs they had seen at other weddings. You helped make our day the success it was so thank you from the bottom of our hearts and if we have any big parties in the UK again I will be sure to give you a call."

Thomas and Samantha Gee, Wedding, Salisbury, 27th June 2015

"Fantastic Band at our Summer Bash party in Wootton Rivers last Saturday. Great music to suit all tastes and some of our special requests too that really got the party-goers revelling! Highly recommended.

Linda Hopkins, Summer Party, Wiltshire, 7th June 2015

"We were absolutely thrilled with your music for our wedding. It was really important for me to get a great band particularly as I have a lot of musician friends!!

Everything was perfect! What more can I say. The fact that my husband was dancing most of the night (and he says he doesn't like dancing or 'can't dance') is testament to the fact that it was a fab night. We had loads of comments from our guests about how great you all were.

We enjoyed the whole day and you guys were really important in setting the great atmosphere so thank you again for being so professional and FABOULOUS!!!!"

Claire and Roland Klepzig, Wedding, Fulham, 21st December

"The ball was a great success again, and definitely an improvement on last year with you guys back on the stage. Everyone I have spoken to after the event commented on how good you are and how you sense the mood and keep everyone dancing, so thanks again for a top night.

I'm not sure I'll be involved with organising next year's ball, but whoever does will want to book you again so pencil in Saturday 12th December!!

Cheers"

Tim
All Hallows Church, Twickenham, Christmas Ball

"Just to say a big thanks to Discovered for help making our wedding day so memorable. You guys are so professional and helpful right from the booking process, to learning our first dance song, the breadth of songs performed and the performance itself. So many of our guests commented on how incredible you were and think that was demonstrated by the fact you struggled to finish as the guests demanded more and more songs!

If you are thinking about booking Discovered stop thinking and do it! You will not be disappointed!"

Mark Smith

"Re last year' s ball it was another cracking night, another delay due to late food (blown fuse box this time) but you guys gave another brilliant performance and the punters went home extremely happy. We are planning on doing the ball again, provisionally Saturday 7th December, so yes if you guys are available please pencil it in."

Tim Chadwick

"Hi John, just wanted to say in a sober state how happy we were with your lot Saturday. Everybody said you were amazing and better than some "professional" gigs they had been to. Hope you get more business from it as I know a few took your cards."
