“Party Up are the best live band I've ever danced all night to! They perform with huge joy and really know how to keep the crowd moving. I'll never book anyone else!”

Emma Thompson, Actress, Private Event, London

“Party Up performed at our wedding last Friday... and rocked the place! We were so looking forward to their performance from the moment we booked them, and they surpassed all expectations. The dance floor was full to the brim and the tunes were uplifting and banging! The band are so friendly and at the same time professional. Genuinely talented guys, thank you so much for adding to our awesome memories of the best day/night ever.”

Kristy & Kev, Wedding, Kent

“Incredible band!! Smashed their set and had everyone dancing from start to finish. Our first dance was brill. Guests are all asking who they were and commenting on how good they are. Would definitely recommend.”

Laura, Wedding, Kent

“If my couples want any wedding any wedding advice, my answer is always 'do it your way and get a band'. You fellas could sing & play the alphabet and the dance floor would be full.”

Derek, Wedding Photographer

“The act were amazing, tight musicians and great singers. Set list was on point and the management of the occasion/crowd was brilliant. All guests were loving it and compliments were aplenty. Definitely helped make the evening and the Bride/Groom focus was just right. The only reason I would get married again would be to see you guys play!”

Kyle, Wedding, Sudbury

“Party Up frankly made our wedding! All our guests mentioned how good they were while they dealt with any requests we had, such as helping with playlists during their sets etc. They also contacted us directly a few weeks before the wedding and afterwards to check we were happy. They were lovely. They had everyone dancing and really brought the evening part of the wedding to life. We could not have asked for a better act for our wedding day and would highly recommend them to anyone else.”

Alex, Wedding, Huntington

“My wife and I booked Party Up through Function Central after months of trawling the internet looking for a wedding band. We were looking for a soul/funk band who had a brilliant lead singer and when we found Party Up we knew this was our band! The band were absolutely incredible and were a real highlight of the evening with all our guests commenting on how amazing and professional they were. Liff (lead singer) has got an unbelievable voice! They also called us up a week prior to the wedding to go over everything and cater to what we liked musically which was very reassuring for us. I would highly recommend using Function Central (and Party Up!) who really helped in creating some wonderful memories for our wedding!”

Ben, Wedding, Dorset

“Party Up were fantastic at getting the dance floor rammed and keeping people there with awesome tunes. Also an absolute professional pleasure, exceeded expectations and were super easy-going. Huge Thanks! ”

Pete, Wedding, Oxford

“Best band we have ever had the pleasure of seeing, truly talented and all our guests agreed! ”

The Rooneys , Wedding, Leatherhead

“Party Up were an extremely professional band, we were worried about them setting up whilst we were eating because we had the stage right in the middle of the marquee, but it was no problem at all barely noticeable with everyone chatting. They were amazing, exactly what we hoped for, blues vocals and amazing musicians playing old school tunes as well as current numbers. The atmosphere was amazing and the overwhelming comments we got from our guests about Party Up tells us how much they added to our special day. The variety of songs they had playing during their break still kept our guests dancing too! They even involved the crowd with sing along moments- it was just great!
I didn't want to leave but the bride and groom had to make their exit at midnight!"”

Victoria & David , Wedding, Suffolk

“Party Up are truly fabulous! I did my research on this band well in advance of our wedding day, and they just blew us all away with their music! Function Central Agency were also very helpful in organising everything for the day. 5 stars all around!”

Abiy, Wedding, London

“Party Up were incredible. We could not have asked for a better performance. The whole band were incredibly talented and we have received so many compliments from our guests. ”

Milly, Wedding, Salisbury

“Party Up were absolutely fantastic and everything that we hoped they would be. They brought so much energy to the evening and the dance floor was filled from start to finish. Rich the band member contacted me a couple of weeks before and helped sort out the admin and finer details so that we were all set for the big day. Also, the band were very accommodating and learned a song that we requested. Function Central were also great. Upfront and transparent with all the costs and T&Cs and were very responsive to any questions I had.”

Chris, Polhawn Fort, Cornwall

“Firstly, the booking experience was so easy and simple. The guys from the band and Function Central could not be nicer!! Although they're not cheap they're hugely worth the money!! I could not speak highly enough, as the groom I didn't even notice them come in and begin to process of setting up. They played our first dance and hit it perfectly. They were interactive and fun loving which just added to a fantastic experience. The atmosphere they managed to conjure was phenomenal and we would definitely recommend Party Up! Simply incredible. I've been in bands most of my life so I understand how difficult it is to set up and produce a crowd on the dance floor, however they did this with ease! Thank you so much for adding to such an unforgettable day!”

George, Wedding, Maidenhead

“Quick to set up and the performances were excellent. They listened to our request for older songs and got everyone up dancing all night!”

Tom, Wedding, Henley-On-Thames

“Both the act and the agency were absolutely first class. Can't fault them!”

Lisa, Wedding, Chichester

“The agency were really helpful and easily contactable. The band were great, understood what was needed and were happy to make changes on the night if this was required. ”

Sarita, Railway Awards, London

“James and I loved the band from start to finish!! It was exactly what we wanted as for us getting the music right was so important as it makes the wedding and the party. The dance floor was full the whole night and one of our highlights is our first dance which the band performed so amazingly! They exceeded all our expectations, were very easy to discuss the plan for the day with and all our guests have commented to us how good they thought the band were. We had the best day of our lives and Party Up were a big part of making it so.”

Harriet, Wedding, East Sussex

“Guys, what can I say, from me and Eddie and all our wedding party, thanks a million, you were amazing (as I knew you would be from all the feedback I had read about you and listening to your demo playlist). So glad we booked you for our wedding, cheers.”

Stephanie, Wedding, Oxfordshire

“Party Up were absolutely brilliant. They got everyone up and dancing and played a variety of funky music. We also received lots of great feedback from our staff!”

Lesa, Christmas Party, Norfolk

“WOW what a night you guys never cease to amaze me, the band has got even better! You were absolutely outstanding and your lead singer has such a great voice, I don’t know how you’re not touring the world selling out stadiums :)”

Val, Sky TV Xmas Party, London

“I am writing to say a huge Thank You to the fantastic band Party Up who were involved in making Alice and Tom's wedding so perfect, the band were fantastic, the guests absolutley loved them, the dance floor never emptied, and the singer interacted with the guests, which was brilliant to see. Alice and Tom and all the guests had a fantastic day.
In run up to the wedding, and on the day itself you went above and beyond, nothing was too much, anything I needed or asked you to do, you did without question, you all worked so hard to ensure everything was perfect, It was an absolute pleasure to work with such an exceptional band, they are so friendly, polite and and we look forward to working with you all again soon. So from the bottom of our hearts we would both like to thank you very much, the wedding went perfectly because of all you guys. We cannot thank you enough for everything.”

Amanda, Wedding, London

“Party Up band were amazing. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests. Everyone was up dancing throughout and didn't want their final set to end. They were professional, reliable and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to others - in fact I already have!”

Vikki, Wedding, London

“How on earth to thank you for such an epic performance at our wedding back in October?! Both the DJ and our caterer commented on what a pleasure it was to watch you: they will have seen so many 'function bands' so i feel that speaks volumes. Never mind the incredible guest feedback!. Thanks so much.”

Lottie, Wedding, London

“We could not have been happier. They nailed 'Is This Love' by Bob Marley as our first dance and then carried it on all night. The garage medley and 'Treasure' were also highlights. Guests of all ages have specifically commented on the band and how they made our reception one of the best things they've been too!”

Mark, Wedding, London

“The band were excellent throughout. Both the acoustic set during the drinks reception and the full band sets later in the evening were superb, the dance floor was packed for the live sets and many guests commented on how good the music was. Even the owner of the venue made special reference to how great the music had been that night. The guys were also very flexible in allowing us to use their microphone for the wedding speeches, plug in our own equipment to record the audio from the speeches directly from the mic and allowed us to plug in an iPod to play background music early in the evening before they took over. All in all, a joy to have there and a real highlight for lots of the guests. Thank you!”

James, Wedding, Berkshire

“Ok, so this gleaming review has been a long time coming, running late like everything did on our wedding day! A month ago Party Up rocked the roof off our marquee in Thetford. We are so pleased that we booked this amazing band. The comments from guests are still flooding in about how brilliant they were! The guys went over and above, they were very accommodating with our requests, and are all incredible musicians. I'm so glad I changed into a shorter skirt for the reception so that I could dance properly!!! Their garage mix was OFF.THE.HOOK! You will not regret booking these guys. Thank you for making our special day even more special.”

Caribou, Wedding, Thetford

“The band were absolutely incredible! Some of the nicest most talented guys I have met. They had so much energy and had a fantastic repertoire. The lead vocalist was amazing! They were not your average wedding band they were gig level and that's what it felt like. They were all very accommodating and took time to mingle with the employees. They were very low maintenance and a pleasure to deal with. We would most certainly book them again and I will be recommending them to everyone I know! Function Central were a pleasure to work with and Party Up are one of the best bands I have heard! They are incredibly professional, friendly and accommodating, extremely talented and you would not be disappointed! The lead vocalist was faultless and could hit some real high notes. They had great energy and really knew how to get the crowd going!”

Emma, Corporate Summer Party, Hertforshire

“Extremely pleased with Party Up. So many of our guests commented how great the band was. I would highly recommend them. I would definitely use them again for another function. They were current, fun, enthusiastic, got everyone on their feet. You can't help but dance when they play.”

Charlotte, Wedding, Kent

“Just a quick email to thank you and the guys so much for their work on Saturday night. They were really professional and friendly, arriving on time and setting up quickly (despite being in conditions similar to Glastonbury!). They were fantastic, getting everyone up and dancing. We will be recommending you to everyone! Thanks again, I look forward to working with you all again soon.”

Ed, Private Event, London

“Party Up were absolutely amazing, they had our guest dancing all night. The variety of songs they played were perfect and all our guest made so many complements about how brilliant they were.”

Michelle, Wedding, Berkshire

“Brilliant band! They were so professional - contacted us to run through what we wanted, turned up early, got all the timings of the night right, and were really nice guys. The music was great and the lead singer rocked. Couldn't have been happier with them!”

Susie, Wedding, London

“Party Up stood out immediately when looking for a band for our wedding - for your consistent positive reviews and your open, flexible style and approach too. Despite our complex brief, you adapted to meet our every expectation and more! As well as your amazing performances, leading on the Scottish dancing and a Danish waltz too brought our cultures together so well. Thank you too for the song dedication that we had requested before the evening and for working with our gospel choir to make sure all of our entertainment went to plan - you went above and beyond pre, post and during our wedding and the care factor of Party Up was so appreciated!
Party Up brought exactly the atmosphere we had hoped for ... talented and professional and so energetic and upbeat in your every song. For most of the evening everyone was off their seat and on the dance floor - a huge success and we feel very lucky to have had Party Up as part of our day! Considering the budget for the whole day, Party Up were without a doubt where we spent our money most wisely.
Our guests continue to rave about our band and, like any Bride and Groom, we couldn't be happier to know that our family and friends enjoyed our day as much as we did. Many of our friends who are planning their weddings have since tried to book Party Up without success ... do book as early as you can so you too can enjoy these most fabulous people!
Thank you so much - keep doing what you are doing! I hope many more brides are lucky enough to experience the magic of Party Up!”

Katie, Wedding, London

“100% satisfied. Party Up were EXACTLY what we hoped they would be (dare I say it, better than the demo tracks online). They played our first dance and Father/Daughter dance live which were brilliant and set the mood straight away. The dance floor was full from 8-12pm and we were so disappointed when they finished.
We opted to have interval music chosen by Party Up in between their two one hour live sets as opposed to the full DJ option (where you could submit requests etc) and it worked brilliantly.
Logistically, they were perfect. I spoke with the band a week before the wedding to run through details and had their contact number in case of any last minute queries. One thing I was slightly concerned about was that we would be eating in the marquee whilst the band set up - I talked this through with the band and we decided the best time to do this etc and it worked perfectly. Nobody noticed them setting up and they were quiet and efficient and did a quick sound check at the agreed time.
Thoroughly lovely people who I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone who loves Motown/soul music - we will definitely book them again in the future.”

Sophie, Wedding, Oxfordshire
