The Perfect Band to Create the Best Atmosphere!

Kyle and the rest of the Snap Chaps crew are awesome! We saw them at a wedding fair and knew straight away that we wanted to have them be a part of our wedding. Their energy as a strolling band is infectious and they single handedly got the party going for everyone. While they weren’t pushy, they did suggest how they could best be utilised and this worked a treat; immediately after the final word of the final speech, they burst into the room and people were up out of their chairs and dancing within 30 seconds! They then proceeded to perform two fantastic sets, whilst interacting with all of our guests (and took a special request not to play a particular song!). They were a pleasure to deal with throughout, and provided amazing entertainment on the day. We would recommend them without hesitation.

Fantastic - the band really made our welcome and drinks reception perfect.

We just wanted to say thank you again for playing and being a part of our wedding day. We had SO many compliments on how great and interactive you were as a band during the arrivals and drinks reception, and for you Kyle singing during the ceremony as an add on really made it perfect. The moment we heard you all play at an open day immediately made us smile and we knew we needed to book you for our special day!

We feel like we missed a lot of enjoying your music as we were whisked away for photos, or people coming up to us, so we’re very much looking forward to seeing our videographer footage to capture you playing for our guests!

Thank you again,
Emma and Dan

Highlight of our BIG Day!!

The Snap Chaps are seriously BRILLIANT!! From the moment we enquired with Kyle for our wedding we were blown away by the fantastic and friendly service and support. On the day itself we and our guests absolutely loved the energy, performance and entertainment that the guys provided. They looked amazing and sounded even better!! They are so different to your usual bands and that's why they stood out! Their professionalism and talent shone throughout the day and put a huge smile on everyone's faces! We couldn't recommend The Snap Chaps highly enough so if you are thinking of booking a band - BOOK THEM!

The Snapchaps made our wedding complete! From the reception to sparklers, they had everyone up on their feet enjoying themselves. Look no further if you are looking for a wedding band! We wish we could do it all over again. Thanks so much.

Great band!

We did a big brunch the next day and The Snap Chaps were excellent! Everyone raved about them and it was the perfect amount of background music but also engaging entertainment! A hard combo to get right. The communication was also excellent throughout the process.

A fantastic addition to any event!

The Snap Chaps are great. They were very easy to communicate with and accommodating of our requests - even learning a new song for our first dance. All the guests raved about them and they injected fun and entertainment throughout their 2 hour set (which they split into 3 for us). Would highly recommend.
