The band were absolutely brilliant. The dance floor was packed all evening and I thought there was going to be a riot when they said it was the last song – everyone was enjoying themselves so much. The day wouldn’t have been the same without them

Apologies for taking so long to write and thank you providing really brilliant music for our party on Saturday the 17th. We thoroughly enjoyed everything you played and from the number of people bopping away, it was clear that everyone thought the same. We have had many thank you notes since the event and just about all mention “the brilliant band”, “the band were very good, playing great dancing music, we loved it.”, the dancing..and the band second to none”, “as for the band they were fantastic” etc etc. Appleton loved you! Thankyou
— Mary
Myself and Lucy have now returned from our honeymoon after a fantastic wedding day. The Masqueraders were AMAZING - they were perfect for the day and everyone commented how good and professional they were and I think the band enjoyed themselves as well. Please pass on my sincere thanks for their performance and making it down to Southampton for the night. We and all our guests had a great time and have had a number of letters commenting on what a good day and night it was, with many mentioning how much they enjoyed the band. I’d definitely recommend them and yourself to anyone seeking to hire a band for their wedding. Many thanks
— Nigel
Hi Toby, Happy New Year!
John and I had the best day – the band was absolutely fantastic (everyone mentioned them the next day). I’m so glad that they enjoyed themselves too – they looked as though they were having fun. Please thank them for a job well done – I’ll be sure to recommend them to anyone who asks.
Best wishes,
— Lisa and John
Everybody thought that you were brilliant (especially us!!); people kept saying “Best band that I have ever heard/seen at a wedding” etc
Best wishes,
— Dominic Cole - IBM UK Ltd.
I can’t go on honeymoon without sending a HUGE thank you to.
The band were just fantastic. We had a few problems with that darn sound limiter which I am sure made it very difficult for them but they were professional throughout!Will be in touch properly when we get back but Mr and Mrs Roffey are very very happy!!
Kind regards,
— Rhia
Just to say ‘thank you’ once again for playing so magnificently at Bizza and Sam’s wedding reception last Saturday. You really were amazing, not just incredibly talented, but friendly, fun and full of energy (even at midnight). Everybody loved it, and loads of people now want to book you for their parties. Anthony at the White Horse, who is notoriously difficult to impress, said that you were the best band he has ever heard - praise indeed!
For us the whole day was magnificent. From the moment the car took us to the church to the moment we arrived home at 1.30 a.m. it was perfect. If we had spent a million pounds it couldn’t have been better, and you all played a very big part in making the day so memorable.
Thank you again and good luck with all your future gigs.
— Marilyn and David Faithfull
Now that we’re back from our honeymoon and life has started to calm down a bit, both Jo and I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your band. We were both extremely impressed with your set and we’ve had loads of comments from guests who also thought you were excellent. I can’t imagine you’ve played Nirvana (Smells like teen spirit) too many times at the end of a wedding, but it is one of Jo’s all time favourites so thanks for doing a great rendition of it. Please pass our thanks onto the other band members, and if the opportunity arises for me to recommend you, I certainly will.
— Noel & Jo.
Thankyou for a brilliant performance by you and your fellow band mates. You helped to make it a special evening. We are looking to hold a similar event next year and as soon as a date is sorted we will be in touch to book you.
If you ever need a reference do not hesitate in contacting me.

I didn’t get much of a chance to speak to the band on Friday apart from right at the beginning but please pass on our thanks for an amazing evening. They were totally fantastic and every single guest commented on how much they just made the night!
Thanks again, we will certainly be recommending them to any friends planning weddings in the future!
— Jude
Our wedding was amazing the band made our night, everyone LOVED them
including us it was a wonderful night and we danced the whole night away. Thank you so much
— Hollie
I just wanted to say a massive thank-you for everyone’s effort for our wedding. We had such an awesome time and it was really helped by the band being so fabulous & very upbeat - we needed a bigger dancefloor! Stuart joined in on his harmonica at one point (not sure if the band approved of that!). I will definitely recommend you to anyone & everyone!
Thanks again, and kind regards
— Jenni
I know the wedding is a few weeks ago, but it’s taken me a while to catch up. The Masqueraders were just wonderful, an excellent band. The singer was always smiling and they all looked as though they were enjoying themselves, it all makes such a difference. Thank you for recommending them, and hope your business continues to go well, best wishes,
— Celia Quarrington
I’ve just got back from honeymoon and just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you so much for organising the Masquerades to play at our wedding - they were absolutely brilliant and the dance floor was heaving all evening - everybody just loved it. I can’t tell you how many of the thank you letters gave them a special mention and nobody wanted them to stop playing. I loved our first dance and the special playing of Queen’s “Don’t Stop me now” quite literally sent everyone crazy! It really was just the most magical day and evening and thank you and the band so much for being a part of that. I’m only sorry that i didn’t get to thank the band more on the night.
Many thanks again
— Melissa
Dear Toby: It was good to meet you at our event and I happily lost the best
that people wouldn’t dance. You said at the time that. in that case, we had
booked the wrong band and you were right. The Masqueraders were simply
terrific. I was amazed at how many people crowded on to the dance floor - and
on a Thursday night. But of course the music was completely right for the
audience - and they encompassed a diverse range of ages - and the band’s
enthusiasm transmitted itself to everyone.
I can’t tell you how pleased we were that the original band dropped out
because we can’t imagine they would have been as good. So thank you very much
to them and you for making our event a success, enjoyed by all.

And we’d like to book you for next year!
— Val, Associate Director, Training For Life
Our daughter’s wedding in Albourne on 8th December was absolutely wonderful despite the appalling weather. Thank you very much for organising the entertainment and finding the perfect mix. The Masqueraders were a great band and kept everyone dancing. I am sure they did more than their allotted sets. They also seemed to enjoy themselves which added so much to the atmosphere.
with best wishes
— Meg Price
Just to let you know that the Band were absolutely superb at my Party last night. Playing some great songs and really giving their all, as they say!! The dance floor was full all through their 3 sets that they played, finishing at 12.30 p.m.!! Please thank the band members,yet again, and especially for going on till after 12.
Needless to say ALL my guests said how brilliant the Masqueraders were, and what a brilliant evening it was!! Best wishes for a happy and successful New Year,
— Nigel
The band were fabulous, everyone was saying how great they were and I suspect you may get some more bookings for them from it. The dance floor was full the whole evening and the band even said how much they had enjoyed it - it was brilliant.

What a lovely message. Thank you so much. I’m so please you had such a good time. I wanted to email you to say thank you but you beat me to it! I don’t need to tell you what an amazing day we had- it was dreamy. It made our day having you guys there. You were all absolutely fantastic, as always!! One of the main worries most people have when thinking about the wedding day is will people dance - we didn’t even need to give that a thought. Sure enough the dance floor was heaving all night! It’s only such a shame it couldn’t go on till the early hours. I think the girl on the trumpet pulled a few of our friend’s heartstrings- they were smitten when she was playing and dancing!! We’ve had so many thank you letters singling you all out as one of the best parts of the day so thank you so, so much.
