Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!
Bride - Northamptonshire 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!
Bride - Surrey 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". You're amazing! See you very soon!
Much love and Thanks
Bride - Surrey Wedding
We couldn't recommend these guys enough! True professionals from start to finish.
Georgia Threadwell
Bride - Essex Wedding
We can't thank you enough for helping to make our day so special.
Bride - Buckinghamshire Wedding
AKA absolutely MADE our wedding day. They had such good energy, a great vibe and the talent is out of this world. Not to mention they are just a lovely group of people. We had so many compliments as to the music selection and delivery, everyone just had the BEST time. We could not be more grateful to the band for the detail, execution and organisation. They made the day a dream. We highly recommend them and would certainly be inviting them to another event should we have one (I guess the aim is to only have one wedding though, right? So we might have to find a birthday or anniversary party as an excuse to have them play for us once again). Simply fantastic
