I can't even remember how many times people came up and said - this band are amazing - where did you get them from!! I've had many texts since that have all been exceptionally positive about both the band and DJ sets, including 'best night out I've had in years, feel like a teenager', 'never danced so much in my life' and 'hope my dad dancing wasn't too embarrassing'.

Tom and I had a brilliant time and we feel we made the right decision on 'over-spending' to have a band there, it made the evening do a real hit. - Vikki and Tom - Knutsford

We just wanted to say the BIGGEST THANK YOU to you and the band! WOW what a band you are! We really could not have wished for anything better, you guys were everything we wanted in a band... the songs were all great, the musicians were all so very talented and you created the BEST party ever - which is exactly what we hoped for. I don't think we ever would have stopped dancing if that was an option - all I wanted to do was be on the dance floor all night, which I think was pretty much achieved! - Nat and Ian, Manchester

Just to say a big thank you for everything yesterday. You were brilliant. We had the best wedding! Thank you again and we will send you some pictures when we get back from our honeymoon. See you soon, Caroline and Tom (aka Mr and Mrs Markowicz) xxx - March 2014

Just wanted to say a big and belated thanks to The R-Band, you did at our wedding at Peckforton back in January. We had the best time, and you went above and beyond all our expectations to help make it an amazing evening. Thanks so much for arranging the first dance song. And the Power of Love worked brillianly. We were so impressed, and had loads of great comments from our guests. We'll definately be recommending you to anyone who's looking for some live entertainment in the future. Thanks again, you were awesome. Steph and Graeme - Wedding - Jan 2014
