We couldn't recommend these guys enough! True professionals from start to finish.

Bride - Essex 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
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!

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.
