    The time of my life!

    The Emma Skipp band completely made our wedding day. They light up the entire room and their energy spreads like wildfire. Noone got off the dancefloor for the entire evening. Emma, the lead singer, involved people in her songs and even let a family member sing along with her and the band. Honestly, I have never seen a band get people dancing, encouraging dance moves, singing and 'managing' the crowd as well as they did!

    Made our wedding day very special

    We had Emma and her band playing an acoustic set at our wedding reception, and later on in the evening full band and DJ. Very professional, flexible including making space for my husband’s drag act. We can’t thank Emma and her band enough for making our day very special. All our guest have mentioned how they really enjoyed the band. Just pure perfection.
