Fantastic band and great entertainment
Great experience and everyone loved them!
What a great band !
Excellent live band
They played both both an acoustic set in the afternoon and as a group in the evening. The live music made a great day even more special. They had everyone on the dance floor and the guests were raving about them at breakfast the day after.
We couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Beyond amazing 🤩
Amazing band from start to finish, everybody loved them
Simply the best! :)
Over the Threshold played our wedding last weekend
They also played great DJ sets in between playing songs the guests had requested on the RSVP's, and one of the band did an acoustic selection as my new wife walked down the aisle. They could not have been better, and all the guests commented how will it went. Thank you guys
Incredible band !!
From start to finish it has been so easy to book, sort everything and then on the day they were amazing. All my guests have commented how brilliant they were and they made our wedding evening just brilliant!!!! Thank you guys. Highly recommend to anybody
During the months prior, James was always prompt in responding to any questions or queries we had. He and was polite, inforative and knowledgable - the band's FAQs also answered a lot of questions we had ahead of time.
James and the band had no troubles accommodating our song choices which were well-rehearsed, slick and clearly had time and effort put in to them for us - this really did make us feel like the songs that were so special to us were equally valued by the band.
The guys turned up and made themselves known, they ran a really slick get-in and setup which was not intrusive or disturbing to anything else happening around. We had a slight power issue ourselves but the guys made it their business to lend a hand and help out in any way they could (Safely and legally within their means, I should add - taking into account electrical safety / H&S etc.)
Simply brilliant. We chose the guys off of the back of their well-produced and slick website and marketing videos and boy did they deliver! There was no deviation in the quality between the marketing videos and the live performance which is always a huge plus.
We continue to receive comments on the quality, care and attention the band put into their performances (Both the acoustic set and full band sets) - it may have just been another gig for the guys, but you wouldn't have known it. They were on point, on the ball and sounded bloody brilliant all day and all night.
They were brilliant. We had a few scheduling issues that we had to adapt to on the night, but the guys were always friendly, smiling and accommodating. They could've easily turned round and stuck to the pre-agreed schedule but they wanted to make the evening the best they could and put their heart into what they were doing.
Their professinalism and experience really shined through - working with us, making suggestions and rejigging their set lists on the fly to fit the time we had remaining, compress three sets to two, drop the 'DJ' set at the end (We had an 11pm curfew) and chose to play right up until the last song.
I stress, they really didn't have to do this, but they really wanted to deliver the best show they could - their personal touch was really appreciated and truly took the band from being more than just brilliant as performers. They demonstrated themselves to be exceptional experienced professionals who really put their heart into every single event.
I would gladly recommend them and you will not be disappointed.
Would highly recommend
