AKA played at our wedding and we couldn't have asked for better. They were absolutely amazing and totally made the party. I would book them again and again and again! Big shout out to Matt for answering all my questions, putting my nerves at ease and being brilliant. Thank you

We booked these guys for our wedding and they did not disappoint - we have had so many compliments about how good they were from our guests and our dancefloor was packed all evening. We had a mix of ages at our wedding and they managed to please everyone. Matt was great at liaising with us prior to the wedding and went through the set list with us allowing us to make changes to get the best music for us. Thank you again so much to the AKA Wedding & Party band - you really did make our evening party fantastic!

We didn't get a chance to say thank you properly at the end of the night on Saturday, so I just wanted to express our gratitude. The set you guys played at Wakehurst was incredible.
It really made our night. The energy the band brought was INSANE and all of our guests have been messaging us to say how much fun they had getting their dance on.

Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band. They all did a super job, and it meant the world to us.

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.

Absolutely fantastic evening with AKA for my wedding - Matt was extremely helpful and responsive in the lead up to the day and removed any stress by answering all questions and responding to various requests.

The dance floor was packed all night, as the tunes just kept coming! Fantastic energy, great fun and incredible vocals and we have had lots of really positive feedback from our guests. Thanks for making it an unforgettable evening!
Sam
Bride - Oxfordshire Wedding
Matt & the band played at our wedding celebration and were AMAZING. They brought so much energy to the set. All of our guests went absolutely nuts dancing. They constructed the setlist around our tastes, and played some more alternative numbers from our list that we really appreciated. It really made the night for us.

They were also super flexible, happy to adapt to our schedule at the last minute as timings changed. Matt was attentive and responsive in the run-up to the big day, which really put our minds at ease.

Would highly recommend these guys, and hope to see them again for the anniversary! ❤️

AKA were not our first choice, but due to COVID-19 causing date changes Matt suggested his band AKA, and oh wow weren’t they fantastic, we would recommend anyone looking for a band to make AKA your first choice!

AKA played at our wedding on the 27th August 2021 at New Place Hotel and our guests are still commenting on how amazing they were, not just the music but the energy they performed with; including seeing Seonaid joining us on the dancefloor! AKA sang our first dance beautifully and continued to keep our guests of all ages on the dancefloor for the entire evening with their variety of songs constructed from our music tastes.

Matt and the band were highly professional, attentive, and responsive in the lead up to the wedding and arrived with plenty of time on the wedding day to set up, preventing any unnecessary stress. We thoroughly enjoyed AKA, and highly recommend them to anyone searching for a band for any event, especially your big day! Thank you again from Mr and Mrs Souter

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!

Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!
Abi
Bride - Northamptonshire 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 the 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!
Jess
Bride - Sussex 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

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.

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.

Groom - Surrey Wedding
Matt 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 Party Band for making our wedding reception so enjoyable. We cannot recommend you highly enough.
Harry
Groom - Sussex Wedding
AKA played for our wedding’s evening reception 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!

Allen
Groom - Surrey Wedding
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.
Sarah

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!

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

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!

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!

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."

Bride - Sussex 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!

I booked AKA to be the live band at our Work Christmas party. The setlist they chose was perfect for the evening - it’s clear they know how to keep a dance floor busy. Will definitely be hiring them again next year.

We saw AKA play live at our friend’s wedding, and we’re so impressed we immediately booked them for our own day. It’s clear from the start that not only do they have a lot of experience in the wedding industry, but that they are also passionate about being part of a couples day. We would highly recommend AKA for any wedding or event.

We’re so glad we chose AKA to be our wedding band. They were polite, professional, and energetic all day! Each song played at our wedding reception was a crowd-pleaser, and the fact the band learned our first dance song to play it live was a nice (and special) touch.

‘My new husband and I recently had AKA as our live wedding band - they were perfect from start to finish. We chose to have both an acoustic set during our drinks reception, and the 4-piece live band during the evening. Both we and our guests were so impressed by each performance! Even going back to the planning stages, booking the band was so simple. I couldn’t recommend them enough!’
