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.
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
Bride - Berkshire Wedding
‘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!’
Bride - Bath Wedding
We couldn't recommend these guys enough! True professionals from start to finish.

Bride - Essex 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
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.
