Don't take our word for it!
Billy & Georgia - Wedding
Absolutely brilliant, can't speak highly enough of this band. From performing our first dance which was special to getting everyone up and dancing. I've never been to a function or party where the dance floor was full from the first song but these guys did it.
We still have people a week and a half after our wedding eulogising about how good the band were.
Would recommend them to anyone for anything.
Richard & Claire - Wedding
Matt & the rest of the AKA band were everything we wanted and more for our wedding day - we could not fault them! They played throughout our ceremony, drinks reception and evening reception, they were amazing. Got our party going and played the perfect mixture of music for the variety of ages we had.

Panny & Rosey - Wedding
Brilliant sets from these guys at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. Our guests are still talking about it! Set up well before they needed to, great musicianship, extensive repertoire and were thoroughly professional throughout. Communication from Matt in the lead up to the day was very welcome, and put our minds at ease. Kept our guests dancing all night, both during the live sets and the DJ sets in between. Would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. Really made our evening! Thanks again guys. You really rocked!

Holly and Tom - Wedding
We got married 4 weeks ago and had these guys as our band and they were AMAZING! The dance floor was never empty and they even humoured one of our guests who wanted to join in the singing.
Would definitely recommend!!
Abby & Andy - Wedding
Absolutely brilliant! Booked on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. Great communication throughout and really lovely friendly guys! Very talented and got everyone dancing all night! Thank you so much!
Abi & Rory - Wedding
Absolutely BRILLIANT!!! Lovely people and very talented musicians :) gutted they couldn't play for longer! Thanks guys, you completed our perfect day!
Couldn't agree more with my wife. These guys were brilliant, and in terms of the "boring stuff" they were very easy to book and liaise with throughout. Fantastic!
Holly & Glenn - Wedding
From the moment we saw you play at the wedding fair to going to see you at a gig and then on our big day itself, we knew that you were something special and we couldn’t have been more lucky with our choice – even with booking you two years in advance without considering another band. You captured not only us, but our family right from the start to the very end.
You were INCREDIBLE in your organisation, professionalism and speed of response which really helped to make us feel we were your priority and helped to calm any nerves – you guys totally knew what you were doing. Not only that but each of you were such lovely people! Though of course, your real strength is your music and because of you and your song choices, we all had the best night dancing away.
All of our family and friends were amazed at the quality of AKA, with many asking how we managed to find you and commenting on how brilliant you were. I could not recommend you highly enough – if anyone is searching for a lively, fun, genuine, professional and dedicated band, then you are the ones! Good luck!
Jo & Ciaran - Wedding
…It takes a strong band to keep an Anglo-Irish wedding bouncing from the first minute till the last; AKA did just that, and then some! Many thanks to Matt & the Gang for contributing to a day that will live long in memories from Donegal to Melbourne! You guys were phenomenal…
Mark & Zara - Wedding
Thank you for everything. Everyone we’ve spoken to thought the music in church was spot on, it was just a shame we didn’t get a chance to see it! You guys were awesome in the evening, we’ve had nothing but praise for the band from all of the wedding guests we’ve spoken to. It was the only wedding I can remember where the band kept the dance floor full all night!
Rebecca and Allen - Wedding
AKA played for our wedding’s evening reception on 30th May 2015 and were amazing! The whole set up with fairy lights created a great atmosphere from the very start and every song was brilliant – you got (and kept!) people on the dance floor all night, which is exactly what we wanted. We had so much fun dancing to the songs we, and our friends and family, love, played by you all so brilliantly. An extra thank you also for playing our first dance, not in your usual repertoire, which made it so much more special than just having a recording. We can’t say thank you enough – we had so much fun!
Dawn & Lee - Wedding
We can't thank you enough for helping to make our day so special. From the planning stages through to the day itself, you were fab.
I'm working on my next party idea so I can have you again!
With love and thanks, Mr and Mrs Barnes xx
Dawn & Lee
Georgia & Billy - Wedding
We had AKA play at our wedding a couple of weeks ago and our guests are still talking about how brilliant they were! They were by far the icing on the cake on our big day!
We booked an acoustic duo to play during our drinks reception and it really did set the perfect mood for our day.
They performed our first dance song which was so special and as soon as the guests could get on the dance floor, they did and stayed there all night. There was not one moment the dance floor wasn't packed.
We couldn't recommend these guys enough! True professionals from start to finish and so organised and helpful. We will defiantly be booking them again soon for the next big family event!
Nick & Fiona - Wedding
We had AKA play at our wedding in August and they were absolutely brilliant. Matt was great in helping us plan the music for our big day. We chose the four piece electric band and they were really good, including doing our first dance song, and they really got the crowd going. We had a lot of compliments from our guests, and the manned DJ option was really great in helping the evening flow and allowing guests to contribute as well. Cannot fault them and would highly recommend them to anyone, and they were reasonably priced to boot.

Helen & Paul - Wedding
We are still absolutely buzzing and adrenaline is now running low but this is one email I knew I just had to write today.
Words really can't describe just how utterly grateful we are to you and the other members of AKA band and Grace too! You went above and beyond to help make our Wedding Day so extremely special and so much fun. Everyone has commented to us just how fabulous you were. You gave our day that extra special touch and we will be eternally grateful for all your help and kindness and fun shown to us. We are now desperately trying to think of another occasion so we can have you back!
Please, pass on our thanks to everyone involved. You sure made it " Our Day" . Your amazing! See you very soon!
Much love and Thanks
The new Helen and Paul Norris x
Sophie & Kevin - Wedding
These guys were absolutely amazing! I can't thank them enough for helping make our day so special. Our guests absolutely loved them and were dancing from the very first song. Well done guys XX
"AKA came highly recommended to us and they didn't disappoint. The band were incredibly easy and accommodating to work with, both on the day and before. Our guests absolutely loved them and they read the room amazingly. The band had everyone up dancing from the very first to the very last song. I would definitely recommend AKA to anyone and just wish we could party with them all over again."
Daisy - Charity Event
Wow, what can I say?! In short Matt and the rest of the AKA band are truly amazing. They provided the live entertainment at our charity Summer ball and it was the best decision I made.
The fantastic communication, top organisation and speedy setup took away the stress pre event. On the night the band were fantastic, helped me with using the microphones for speeches etc and then set the dance floor alight with the non stop tunes. We were begging them not to stop even when the venue was closing!
Top choice, top music, top people!
Huge thank you again – you really were amazing!
Jess & David - Wedding
…Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! We had the most amazing day and seeing everyone having fun on the dance floor was a really important part of that!
We were really impressed by your band – how you played our first dance song and how you seduced people to dance from the get go – from older family members to friends and toddlers!
We’d definitely recommend aka to prospective wedding organisers!…
Sarah - 60th B'day Party
From the moment they got in touch to discuss playlists and requirements to the clearing away at the end of the night!! They really played to the crowd and we’re happy to gauge the mood on the night and equally happy to play requested songs and playlists. They were very reassuring in the lead up to the party and the birthday girl loved dancing away to some classics through the decades! I would definitely recommend and use for future events.
Harry and Kate - Wedding
Matt Saunders was very helpful and accommodating while we were planning our wedding. Meaning we knew that the evening entertainment would be great and that we didn’t need to worry about it.
On the night they were fantastic, Matt arrived in plenty of time (as he said he would) and the band got everything set up ready. The music was brilliant and they got everyone up and dancing. They had a variety of songs and genres, and reacted to the crowd excellently. Countless people asked us about the band and where we found them, as they loved the music so much.
Thank you so much to AKA Function Band for making our wedding reception so enjoyable. We cannot recommend you highly enough.
