Reviews for Island Discs

"Thank you and the band for such a great end to our evening, many people said it was the best wedding they had been to, a major reason for that is the great music, people were up dancing from the moment you started playing. Thank you once again for making our wedding special!"

Robin. Oct, 2013.

"We booked Island Discs for our 10 year anniversary celebrations and they were absolutely fantastic. They transformed the room and lit the place up for party time. We were holding a graduation event so the transition was really important to us and they exceeded our expectations. A very professional outfit with a great sound and loads of energy. Highly recommended!!"

Jing Institute of Massage. Feb, 2014.

"I booked Island Discs for my wife's 50s themed birthday party. We had a great time, the entertainment was amazing, Anna and the guys did two great sets, and were great fun and enormously helpful from the planning phase all the way through to the end of the event. Lovely people, great talent and loads of fun, what more could you possibly want?"

Phil. April, 2014.

"Island Discs set the whole venue alive with their skiffle set, which we presented alongside a 1950's stylist giving customers victory rolls and quiffs. The band looked the part and sounded it too - they are all fantastically accomplished musicians and great fun to work with. I only wish I'd given them a longer set!"

Abby. May, 2014.

What a band! We've never seen such a full dance floor at a wedding. Every guest we spoke to told me how much the band made the night and how they want them at their wedding! Such a unique style and what a voice Anna. 5 stars all the way.

Jenny and Nail, August 2015.

The Island Discs were fantastic. They arrived on time, were friendly and professional, and accommodated our requests wherever possible. Most of all they played great music! The venue were so impressed they are adding the band to their list of recommended artists!"

Ben and Jo, July, 2015.

"Just a quick note to thank the whole band for such a wonderful performance. You were all fantastic musicians and to have you soundtrack our evening was fun and fabulous! You were very easy to work with in the build up and on the day you were all courteous and professional. The proof of a good wedding band is in the size of the crowd dancing and the chitter chatter the day after. I have received many compliments already about how wonderful the music was and it was great to see all our friends up and boogying on the night."

Tim and Katie, July 2015.

"Thank you so so much for last Saturday YOU were FABULOUS! We all absolutely loved the Island Discs and the party crowd feedback was all the same that they loved your sound, look and performance. So a big thankyou to you and the guys. I wish you every success in the future you deserve it."

Lambrook School, June, 2015.
