Testimonials

Please could you pass on my thanks to the band for being so TOTALLY AMAZING on our wedding day... The atmosphere they created was brilliant and the music was just awesome. All our guests commented on how fantastic the band was and we all danced the night away :-) Thanks again, Izzy and Harry x

Harry Judd (McFly)

Everything's going great, thanks - I put it a lot down to the lead vocalist at the wedding. Let me assure you, there was an extensive honeymoon period off the back of that set.

Dermot O'Leary

Absolutely fantastic, such a terrific show. I've had people raving about the performance ever since.

Piers Morgan

Wow what can I say, you guys were incredible, you certainly know how to get a party started! Our wedding guests were blown away and are still talking about the night. It was the best night of our lives.

Declan Donnelly

Absolute world class. It's the fifth time I've booked them and will be doing again for next year's event. I cannot recommend them highly enough as everyone I spoke to after the event said without any prompt that they were exceptional.

Ian Bishop - CEO, NISA

All the guests were raving about the band.

Martina Berlin, Pandora

In my opinion it’s a no brainer!! It has to be the Kitts.

Simon Clark, Lillingston Associates

Everyone commented on how excellent the band was, from the guests, to the clients and even the suppliers. One of our sound guys said that he could clearly see why The Kitts were the number one party band in the UK. The band really put on a wonderful show! We very much look forward to working with you again!
