    This band was amazing

    This band was amazing. They played at our wedding and played our first dance song live which was beautiful. All the guests commented on how great the band was. They played a fantastic range of songs and the communication from booking them to after the event is fantastic. I would recommend them to anybody. 5 stars from Mr and Mrs Crockett.

    Such a dream to work with

    From first contacting The Players, to them leaving the event they have been an absolute dream to work with and here are some examples why. They are one of our only wedding suppliers who were genuinely keen we were put first and it wasn’t just another wedding to turn up to, they invited us to see them before us paying deposits, they remembered on the day to contact us to see if we were still coming and asked us to introduce ourselves, they sent over a set list and replaced songs we didn’t like, proactively contacted the venue with PAT certificates vs coming through us as the go between and talked to us about the venue so we could prepare for what to expect with sound limitations etc. They arrived, were ready and learnt our first song. Everyone raved about how amazing the band were. We are not a group of big dancers but even the most unlikely were up on their feet. I could not recommend this group enough and will be taking trips down memory lane to see them in York. Seriously seriously amazing!
