Band were incredible, brilliant vibes and all the guests commented how great they were. So many people on the dance floor!
“We had Buskers & sons for our wedding this year in November, after seeing them a few times we knew they were the band for us!
From initial enquiry’s stage to right up to them playing the communication was quick and efficient. They absolutely made our wedding, our guests loved them and they had everyone one and dancing.
Their set list catered for everyone’s taste and we loved that they learned so many of our requested songs. The band are all so friendly and came well dressed for the wedding.
I would recommend this band to anyone and just waiting for another event to book them again!! Thank you so much! “
“We had heard Buskers & Sons play at a friends wedding a few years ago and we loved their music and style then, so it was a no brainer that we asked if they could play at our wedding. From that very first conversation Buskers & Sons were amazing in getting back to our queries quickly and professionally. Their cover of Imagine Dragons, I’m on top of the world, was amazing and learnt specially so we cannot thank them enough. Would highly recommend these guys to anyone and if you are considering booking them for a wedding or event, do it!”
“What can we say? We always loved Buskers & Sons but when you get one of your favourite bands to play on your special day and it all comes together perfectly then you know you’re on to a new level. Luke, Andy, Olly and Matt switch fluidly between their instruments, blend their voices perfectly and put new a new spin on current songs as well as those from way back. All of our guests, young and old, found something to love about these guys and the dance floor was never empty. On a practical level, Buskers & Sons were reliable, easy to deal with and flexible which makes them the obvious choice. Oh, and the set ending seven-song mash up is the perfect way to segue in to your disco. If you need a wedding band that will really get the party started then you can stop looking now, you’ve found them.”
“Buskers & Sons are the most brilliant band!! They are organised, easy to deal with, lovely people and they know how to rock a party. There was a fantastic mix of tunes on the evening, some great classics, soulful stuff and music that made everybody want to dance. Their music is thoughtful and uplifting and they are all really talented musicians. They all changed instruments and the music never got boring. Lots of our wedding guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music, at the end of the evening the dance floor was full. Choosing the band for a wedding is a big decision and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Buskers & Sons!”
“A huge thank you to Buskers & Sons! We chose them as our wedding band on a recommendation and we are so glad we did! The communication was excellent from the start and they learnt 2 of the songs we requested, putting their own spin on them. They are so much more than your standard wedding band - they have a wide range of songs on their set list and the fact that they swap instruments makes them stand out. They were highly professional throughout and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or book them again.”
"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding and being part of our special day. Your cover for our first dance was perfect and we are so grateful for you all for learning it for us. We were blown away by how professional and friendly you all were. You put on a great performance and had all our guests dancing all night. Every song was brilliant and we have had so many people comment on how fantastic your music was. Thanks again!"
"Firstly everyone at the wedding thought Buskers & Sons were great. Their sound was perfect for our special day, with two, 1 hour slots and an encore to finish. The lads were friendly and happy, which creates a positive mood. They were happy to accommodate with timings and were punctual which is important when fitting everything in. They were value for money and we would highly recommend them. Great band, lovely lads.
"Buskers & Sons were fantastic, very professional, really chilled out and came with a great set list! They even helped set up the stage lighting at our wedding venue. Everyone got up for a dance and thoroughly enjoyed their music. They came highly recommended by a close friend and we weren’t disappointed, they made the evening of our wedding extra special. It was also nice to have a local band for what was very much a lovely coastal Devon wedding. We would highly recommend them to anyone having an event, but mainly we can’t wait to go and see them live again!"
Buskers & Sons were absolutely perfect for our wedding - I can't image a wedding where they wouldn't be.
Prior to the wedding Matt was great; quick to respond; very professional; accommodating and just easy to deal with. Planning weddings are stressful enough, so it was a pleasure to work with him.
On the day, I barely noticed them arrived - they just got on with their business. When they started, I have to say I was really pleasantly surprised. The lads are genuine musicians, interchanging instruments with ease, playing a real variety of music, including a track they learned especially for us. They also play with a smile on their faces - they are clearly enjoying what they are doing as much as we were listening to them . Their set-list is full of variety, old and new stuff - but they aren't just a cover band - they are a real band in their own right. I'd
"We booked Buskers & Sons for our wedding and we were blown away by how incredible they were. We have had many guests get in touch providing their compliments and one of the first things people have mentioned is how brilliant the band were and how they created such an incredible atmosphere.
All the band members were really friendly and easy going. The bands performance itself was inevitably going to be one of the most important parts for us and they most certainly provided a performance to get everyone up on their feet dancing. It was so clear how much all the band enjoyed performing, and that enjoyment was infectious and was clearly passed on to the wedding guests, so thank you. We got to witness for the first time my Mother, Aunty, and Uncle all dancing together and even Ruths elderly Grandma got up and danced.
Thanks again guys, we could not have asked for more from you and we look forward to seeing you perform again soon, we will definitely be recommending your band to friends and family!"
"It took us a long time to find the right band for our wedding, we wanted someone who could hold an audience for an entire night, get everyone on he dance floor, had a great sound and were an all round dope set of people. Then we found Buskers & Sons and we knew they were the one for us.
Buskers & Sons blew us away. They were sensational. Our friends and family danced the night away for 2 hours and had only the highest of compliments for the guys.
Honestly, from the bottom of mine and my Wife’s heart, thank you SO much for absolutely killing it. You were sensational and everything we wished for."
"Thank you so much for providing such good music at our wedding reception. Everyone was full of compliments about our band choice and you managed to get everyone up and dancing; the young and slightly less young! They were particularly impressed with your multitalented switch-ups, some even mid-medley, and left us all buzzing with the Thunderstruck Mash Up! The variety of songs that you played kept everyone happy even had the grandparents tapping their toes at the bar! We really appreciate you learning our first dance song and a couple of other favourites of ours. Thank you for being easy to correspond with and our guests mentioned how friendly and open you were on the night! We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we enjoyed your music, we are sure to pop along to your future gigs!"
"We cannot praise you three enough... you are AWESOME and we absolutely loved having you at our wedding!!! You had everyone dancing within minutes and everyone was loving the music. Your 'Bitter Sweet Symphony' mash up was insane... I could listen to that all day long. Thank you so, so much for travelling all that way, entertaining everyone and for joining in after your set. SO MUCH FUN! Cannot wait to see you guys play again!"
"Buskers & Sons were truly amazing when they played the day time of our wedding. Due to good weather they were able to play outside and it was just perfect. They had everyone up dancing and enjoying themselves with their excellent set list of songs old and new. We even had our impromptu first dance to them. All of our guests have expressed how much they loved Buskers & Sons, and they just made the day even more perfect. They are very lovely and talented young men and it was a pleasure to have them play at our wedding"
"Buskers & Sons played at our wedding and the put on a fantastic show! They were fun with a creative flair for making songs their own including some great mixes/mash ups. Very professional but also just really nice guys who kept in contact ahead of the wedding, chilled out with us in the evening and even kindly learnt the song I requested for our first dance. The music was brilliant and our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed listening to them, as did we. I can't recommend them highly enough...what a great trio of talented young guys!"
"Thank you to Buskers & Sons for making our wedding so very special. You guys were amazing. Great communication, great music. Can't wait to see/hear you again."
