  • Reviews / Testimonials

    "A huge Thank you for making our Christmas Party a great success. The feedback from those that attended has been amazing, singing the praises of The Gifted.

    Thank you once again for making the party a very memorable event. I hope to have the pleasure of being able to book The Gifted again in the future."

    "I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to The Gifted on what I can only say was the best day of our lives, you made our wedding so very special, you were total professionals & made sure that everything was just perfect!

    You are truly amazing at what you do, Thank you again. I would most certainly recommend you to everyone, I now need to find another excuse to have The Gifted perform again!

    Thank you once again, we had the time of our lives!"

    Can I thank the whole Gifted Team on behalf of Craig and I for performing at his 50th birthday party.

    "From beginning to end you were all totally professional. It was such a relief when you took the worry of the evenings schedule of my hands, and applied your experience to make the evening run so smoothly. From the moment you guys sang in the empty marquee as a sound check, I knew that if the caterers failed to turn up and the marquee was to fall around our ears your performance would still make it a fantastic night."

    "Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much! The Gifted were absolutely fantastic at our wedding! Everyone commented on how good they were and how much they enjoyed the evening do - there were people up on the dancefloor all night! They were very professional and it was noted by everyone. Wish we could have another party then we can get you guys up here again!!"

    "Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help. The gifted were amazing, a huge thank you to them. They made the evening."

    "Hiya, sorry for the slight delay, but got back from the honeymoon and work has gone nuts dont know which way to turn!!!

    But I just wanted to take 5 mins and say thank you so much, you were all amazing. We have had so many people commenting on how amazing the whole wedding was especially the band, still annoyed you lot took the limelight away from my dress lol!!! But honestly you all were fantastic, even the venue said that they knew when the band
    was playing as the bar was empty!!!!

    We had the best day ever. We were both on such a downer the next day, even my bridesmaids were miserable!! I Told jay we are going to get divorced next month so i can plan it all over again!!!! His reply was "there is an easier way - we can just have a party next summer!!!" Wahoo!!! So i will be in contact again soon to book you guys up.

    Anyway thank you all so much and apologies cos i think me and jay were a little bit drunk by the end of the night,actually prob if i was realistic more like 5.30pm!!!!"

    "What can I say… The Gifted ROCKED our wedding on Sat! they were absolutely brilliant and made the party so much fun. I hope they enjoyed it too.

    We had a magical day and it was such a fun wedding. So a huge thank you to you and the guys for everything.

    Two great friends of mine, Catherine and Dom, get married in April next year and are desperate to have the same
    band as they thought they were so fab."

    "WoW!! what a band. Absolutely perfect singing throughout the evening.

    Our guests were mesmerised by the quality and diversity of their repetoire. We are sooooooo sooooooooooo pleased we made the right choice to have the Gifted play at our wedding on the 25/08/12.

    So much so our guests cannot stop talking about them. They kept the venue rocking!!

    Thank you for all your hard work and for making our wedding day complete and special."
