Best Wedding Band!

Cut The Mustard were our wedding band and we could not recommend them enough. We had two pre-wedding calls with Ed to make sure that he knew the target audience and type of music we wanted, and we were also given a questionnaire for vetos which put us at ease that no bad surprises would come up!
On the day they were absolutely fantastic - their live acoustic set was the perfect backdrop to our canapé reception and their evening music was electric (we had people constantly on the dance floor, including those who said they usually hate dancing!). The band were totally flexible and were kind enough to play one of my favourite bands (MCR) which was unforgettable! We also loved how they were there the whole time and didn’t just leave a playlist running - it meant we had a totally personalised experience depending on what the “vibe” was and our guests were able to make requests too.
TL/DR: Cut The Mustard made our wedding the incredibly magical day that it was and we would hire them again in a heartbeat - I know that I’ll be coming back to them for my 30th in a few years!

Awesome band created a great atmosphere

A huge thank you to Cut The Mustard for providing the most incredible entertainment for our celebration!! Ed was brilliant to deal with and professional throughout the process, from the booking, to discussing the music we wanted and putting together playlists, planning his route and the party itself was so sleek. The music on the night was phenomenal, and started with a special acoustic guitar hour with Ed on vocals and later we had the five-piece band. All of the musicians were hugely talented and performed a great range of music that had guests of all ages up on the dance floor all night. During the evening and after, people have been talking about Cut The Mustard and were seriously impressed and want them at their party too! Darren and I cannot thank you all enough and we both want to do it all over again, so we look forward to having another opportunity to invite you back to party again! Very best wishes, Jess

Personal, friendly and fun

We LOVED having Cut The Mustard play our wedding! All the band members were so friendly and approachable. Everything was set up on time and we didn't have to worry about a thing - communication before and during the event was excellentf. They even did a personalised cover of a song for our first dance and remixed some awesome wedding classics, too! Their set list is an eclectic mix and wqas just so much fun. If you're looking for a party atmosphere with the most professional, fun and talented musicians, look no further.
