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!

Wow wow wow

Emma and the band are amazing. For a little extra they personally learnt a new song for our first dance and nailed it! Emma is so energetic and captivates you entirely. The whole family have non stopped talking about Emma and the band since the wedding. Definitely keeping hold of all contact details for any future parties!

Most amazing, energetic, talented wedding band

We booked Emma Skipp band for our wedding ceremony and evening entertainment. The acoustic trio in the ceremony was absolutely beautiful, a dream walking down the aisle to. In the evening we had the full 8 person band and DJ. The band was so much fun and the dance floor was full all night. The DJ in between and after the band sets was really great too. So many fantastic comments from our wedding guests who thoroughly enjoyed the Emma Skipp band. Extremely talented band! A no brainer to book this band and we look forward to going to watch Emma Skipp live lounges around the local area

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.
