Steve - Madness Saxophonist AMAZING

We had the pleasure of having Steve perform at our wedding at Thorpe Garden, Tamworth.
On the lead up to the wedding, our communications with Steve were seamless, friendly and professional. We had a zoom meeting beforehand to touch base and decide on a plan of action for the day. It was really nice to meet Steve beforehand.
On the wedding day, we booked Steve for two one hour slots. The first was a chilled, jazz music vibe and the second set was an Ibiza sax set and the dance floor was packed! Our guests loved listening to Steve play and said he was one of the highlights of the day.
I highly recommend Steve for any event - he made our wedding that extra bit more special! I hope we have the joy of seeing him perform again in the future.

Great Experience

Entertainment Nation really simplified the process of finding the perfect wedding band! With so much to chose from, finding who was available, what musical style we wanted, and boiling it down was extremely straight forward. Arranging the booking and managing the logistics was also easy, with clear guidance and timelines to follow. Huge thanks for taking the headache out of one of the most important parts of our big day.

Brilliant live music

We received an excellent service from Entertainment Nation, from our initial enquiry, right through to booking - and then in relation to a couple of post-booking queries.

The band we booked - Talladega Lights - were absolutely fantastic and kept the dance floor alight all night. Everyone loved them and we received so many lovely comments on their performance.

I would not hesitate to use Entertainment Nation again if I needed to organise another event!

Great service & awesome entertainment

Entertainment Nation make the process of sourcing and booking entertainment for your event extremely easy. We booked an amazing band (called California Waiting) through their site for our wedding just gone, and all our guests were highly complimentary about the band and how good the evening had been. If I hadn鈥檛 seen Entertainment Nation advertised through social media, I wouldn鈥檛 have been able to find this band and throw such a great party. Thanks guys for delivering such an awesome service.

Fantastic service and amazing band

We had a great experience of working with Entertainment Nation on our wedding last month! They were responsive, communicative and helpful throughout. It was all incredibly stressfree throughout the process.

And The Shifters were the absolute perfect band for the occasion. We could not have imagined an evening just as entertaining, it was brilliant. We had so many compliments on the band, their performance and the atmosphere they created.

The Mamma Mias - 5 Star

The Mamma Mias were absolutely fantastic, better than I expected. I had regular contact with them before the big day, and even on the big day they fit in some of my weird last minute requests with no questions.
Their performance was incredible, everyone loved them and had the best time ever. I am so so impressed and so pleased I booked them because they were truly brilliant. I would not hesistate in recommending anyone to book them, I would have them at every event if I could.
I wish I could give more than 5 stars.
Thnak you so much again

Great value for money and amazing band!

5/5 stars

Honestly, the band were just incredible! We still have guests asking for their details now and it鈥檚 been nearly 3 months after the big day! They just brought the most amazing vibe and played songs perfect for our guests! They adapted well and got everyone on the dance floor and our first dance was just the best! The band were kind enough to do a special request for our first dance and I鈥檝e never seen so many people on a dance floor!!! It was the best moment of my life and it was all down to the band! They adapted well to the day (as the timings were delayed) and just went with it and I felt I didn鈥檛 even have to worry about them on the day! They were such lovely guys as well which made the experience so much better! The vocals and saxophonist were amazing and got everyone in the mood to dance which is exactly what we wanted! Couldn鈥檛 recommended them enough and really feel like they鈥檙e great value for money when comparing them with other bands! Thank you so so much for making our day so perfect!

Entertainment nation were also great! Their communication was great and responded really quick to any questions or queries I had! I dealt with Rosie and Jonny and they were so lovely and very professional. I was quite worried at first that I wouldn鈥檛 be dealing directly with the band and that they wouldn鈥檛 understand what vibe we were looking for, but it was honestly perfect! Jonny phoned me up and clarified everything a few days before and this helped to settle my nerves. Again, would highly recommend to anyone booking a wedding or an event! Thank you again!

Fantastic!

Start to finish, the supplier was responsive and supportive during a previous band disbanding in the run up to the wedding. I chose another band and they were fantastic. I danced all
Night and the atmosphere was great.

The FootmN

We used The Footman for our wedding and wow, we couldn't have been happier with them! From the sings they sang, to their voices, to the way they interacted with our guests to the dj set they played in between, it was all perfect!! Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, loved then which I think as a band is a hard thing to achieve!

100% be using them again if we ever have a party!

An amazing experience

Entertainment nation were a breeze to work with. Contact was very easy and any queries we had were answered very quickly and everyone we spoke to came across very friendly but professional!

We found strawberry champagne on Entertainment Nation鈥檚 website and I instantly knew I loved them. They had the exact vibe I wanted for my wedding. We wanted a daytime act that could also perform during the ceremony and strawberry champagne were perfect.
I actually was so disappointed once the ceremony was over as I realised the song I was so excited to hear I completely blacked out while walking down the aisle! Luckily I had the ceremony filmed and it captured Gemma鈥檚 absolutely stunning voice with the beautiful guitar accompaniment.
It was such a busy day and my one wish is that I could go back and listen to more of their set!!
The perfect duo, thank you so much for making our day extra special.

Worth the money

We've booked a band for our corporate Christmas party and it turned out to be amazing. Everything from the booking, setting and packing down went incredibly smooth. The band Candy Jam were fabulous and got the whole company on their feet dancing all night.

The Cosmic Balloons

Thanks to their professionalism and can-do attitude, the Balloons saved our wedding day. Due to the absolute incompetence of our marquee provider (All About ME based in Chester), we were informed just 2 days before reception that we are not allowed to use speakers. Pem, our contact person for the band, had been extremely responsive and accommodating since we had booked them via Entertainment Nation. So when I reached out to him, I was sure that he would do his best to help us out - and he did. He informed me that they could do pretty much all the songs acoustically. He offered to arrive earlier to sort out any potential issues with the setup. He also offered to talk directly with the sound engineer at the venue to see if there's any alternative solutions. When the wedding day arrived, the Balloons not only gave a fantastic performance, but they saved the day - again. My husband and I had decided not to do a first dance so we had not chosen a song. (Un)fortunately, the crowd insisted. We slowly and begrudgingly got up to the dance floor, not sure what we were going to do. Then Pem and the guys started playing Fell in Love with A Girl by the White Stripes. We had not spoken about this, so I'm not sure if this is their standard for the first dance. But it was the perfect choice for the moment. What could have been an embarrassing moment became a very memorable one. Both during and after the reception, several of our friends came up to tell us how much they enjoyed the music. One person asked if they are famous, to which I replied "No, but they should be." Hopefully they'll be famous one day and I'll be able to smugly tell people that they came all the way from London to play at our wedding in the Lake District :) Guys - if you are reading this, thank you very much again!
