Just wanted to say thank you again for playing at our wedding. Everyone said the band were brilliant. You managed to get everyone up dancing the whole night. We really appreciated you staying later for us as well, at such short notice.
We hope to see you again in the future!

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding you were fab xx

Rick Lawton - Groom
The Dave Speakman Band were friendly, organised, independent and created a great atmosphere for our special day. They used their initiative and got on with their business without any need to interrupt us. Great lads and service. They were excellent.

Kevin Jenkins – Restaurant Manager Cottons Hotel, Knutsford
We have a lot of bands playing here at various functions throughout the year. I have to say that Dave’s band is the best one, I always look forward to any event where I know these guys are playing...

Michelle Fever
We had such a wonderful evening. The Dave Speakman Band were absolutely fantastic, we’ll definitely book them again…

John Abbott
We hired The Dave Speakman Band to play at our wedding. Dave and the band we’re really professional all night, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. They set up quickly and quietly, liaising with the venue for all their power requirements etc. Dave played our first dance from my iPod and then the band kicked off straight into their first set. It was a great mixture of tunes and the dance floor was packed out! The band put recorded music on between sets, which meant we didn’t have to pay out for a DJ. The second set rounded up the evening with the band getting all our guests singing along. I wouldn’t hesitate to book The Dave Speakman Band again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a great band.

Jannet Brown (guest)
You guys were great, plus you played my favourite tune - ‘Two Princes’. Thanks, we all had such a great time.

Joseph Stevens
The band really tired me out, every time I tried to sit down – they played an even better song!!

Dawn Smith
Thanks again Dave! Your band were an amazing conclusion to our perfect day. You really got the party going and it was lovely to see our two families enjoying themselves, dancing to all the great music you played.

Andy Box
It was great to see everyone up out of their seats all night. The music you played was perfect for our friends and family, I really enjoyed it all. The play lists you put on between the band playing were great too! All in all, we were amazed with the level of service you provided and have been overwhelmed with praise for you guys from all our family and guests.

Bride’s father
That was really great, we’ve had a smashing day and you rounded it up brilliantly. Cheers for everything.

Cate Coates (Bride)
I knew you were the band for us as soon as I heard you. Looking through your lists of tunes, it was clear that you played the songs we wanted to hear. Everyone had such a lovely time. I would recommend you every time.

Frank Goode - Hilton Hotels
Great to see a covers band that plays up to date stuff! You made a real impact on tonight’s party.

Bill Hillyard
Good work tonight. Tough for a band to play for such a young crowd, but you guys won them over! You’re a really professional outfit, it was clear to me that you knew what you were doing.

Angela McClarty
Thanks for everything tonight!! Great set, I loved it all. It’s hard to know what to expect after listening to many many bands at friends party’s and weddings and the quality varying so greatly. Your band surpassed my expectations and made our party one to be remembered.

Mark Mapp
A big thank you to you all. It’s not often that I dance, but with your band – I felt I had no choice!

Duncan Winfield (Head of Performance – Salford University)
Great playing from you all, we’ll definitely have you back for the graduations next year…

Simon Reynolds
What a band! I’ve never enjoyed a party as much as tonight. The blend of new and old songs was just what the doctor ordered!

Marie Lewis
I love the mix of tunes that your band play and the funky twist you bring to them.

Mrs Patterson
We were expecting the band to be good and they surpassed our expectations. Harry (our son) hasn't put his guitar down since - the band have been a real inspiration to him...

Chris & Gemma Knight
We were so impressed with your band. It was really great to see how much you all enjoyed playing together and we loved it too.
The music you played was a really good mix for everyone at the party - I especially enjoyed the funky jazz! Thanks again.

Mike Watson guys were great. Nice touch throwing in some Irish tunes for St Patrick's day too!

Emma Grainger
The Dave Speakman Band are the best covers band I've ever seen!

Andrew Bailey
Initially I was unsure about spending so much on entertainment. I'm so glad I did - the Dave Speakman Band were such a great band, everyone I've spoken to since the wedding has mentioned how great they were.

Jane Reed
Great sound and a great set of lads. We simply couldn't have hoped for better. Many thanks! Xx

Chris Stevenson
This band we're exactly what I was looking for. They played a balanced mix of music and really impressed everyone.

Joe Franco
This band is a really great unit. Tight and sharp! As a professional drummer, my favourite bit was the drum solo - although it made me realise I should practise a lot more!!!

Tom & Ali Hutchinson
The Dave Speakman Band were just what we wanted for our wedding and they made our special day all the more enjoyable. They were able to perform the specific tracks that we asked for and got everyone up on the dance floor for both of their sets.

The band set up their gear quickly and without fuss and were ready to go when we needed them. They also liaised with our DJ and sorted everything they need.

Their performance was superb and their repertoire catered for a very wide and mixed age and appreciation range.

We couldn’t have asked for anymore from the band. They made our evening reception rock!

Dave Wright
Thanks for kickstarting the party last weekend Dave, great couple of sets. Let me know when you're next playing around here. I'll come down. Quality night mate, thank you.

Amanda Richards
What a talented bunch of young men. We had such a great evening.

Mike Dalton
These guys are great, try to see them if you can!

Martin, Manager of The George & Dragon, Holmes Chapel
Another great New Year's gig guys! I've had so much great feedback and four tables are already booked in for next year!!

Thanks again,

Martin (G&D)

Steve Doherty, Head of Fundraising, St David’s Hospice, North Wales
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Dave Speakman Band for your party or event. They’re a friendly, experienced, well-rehearsed band, who know how to fill a dance floor. They were on time, too!

Charlotte Jordan, 18th Birthday Party
The Dave Speakman Band are simply the best live band I've seen around here. I'm gonna have a 19th party now just to book these peeps again!! xx

Michael Peel - British Army
The Dave Speakman Band arrived on time and were professional. Reviews from my guests were all positive.

Robert Sproston
I found every aspect of dealing with Dave and his band simple and straightforward. They provided us with just the entertainment we we're looking for and I would happily recommend them to anyone who is planning their own event

Susan Sherridan
Dear Dave,

Thank you for providing us with great entertainment last Saturday. With such a wide age range we weren’t sure what kind of music to book, but your band played something for everyone.

Thanks for all your advice before the event, and for making the arrangements flow on the evening. Thanks to your organisation and skill we could just sit back and enjoy ourselves – though I haven’t dances that much for ages!

Best wishes, Susan

Liz Watson
I booked The Dave Speakman Band for my niece's wedding reception last saturday. The band set up their equipment quickly and quietly, we hardly noticed they had arrived.

When they started playing - I realised that we'd really got our money's worth. Everyone was up dancing and we had such a wonderful evening...

Victoria Smith
...we were so impressed by the variety of music you played - there really was something for everyone. Thanks again!

03/09/2011 Sarah Kirk - Events co-ordinator
Thanks again Dave for the excellent music last Saturday. Everyone has been raving about how great you were!
I've passed your contact details on to number of friends - no doubt we'll see you at one of their parties soon!

Chris Place
Well you never really know what to expect when you book a band for your wedding reception, I've been to far too many weddings where the music has been below par and has acted more as an annoyance than an addition of spectacle to your special day... This is where The Dave Speakman Band stand out from the crowd, they where excellent in their professionalism as well as being able to play their instruments! When organising the wedding I only had one duty in organising the ceremony and that was to get some decent music sorted out. I went through the usual Google rigmarole but I didn't want a cheesy covers band, but then I found these guys. The Dave Speakman Band played a great selection of music for all tastes - Job Done!

Frank & Nicky Swan
Nicky and I can't thank you guys enough for adding to our amazing day, the whole dancefloor was packed and people were loving it. It really added to our wedding memories and everyone remarked at my spectacular organisation of getting a decent band

Tim Whitely
Just a quick note to say how pleased everyone was with the gig yesterday - it made a special day for my Mum, just that bit more special. Thanks again for such a super performance. All the best to you and the band!

Martin - Manager of the George & Dragon Holmes Chapel
Thanks again for the excellent work put in by you and your band on new years' eve. I definitely want to book you again for next year...

Brian Davies
I’ve never known any band play something for every demographic and I never thought I’d see my 17 year old nephew dancing along side my 80 year old mother!
We will definitely be inviting you back

Charlotte Attack (mother of the bride)
My feet have never been so sore! The best bit was seeing my usually shy husband moon walking to his favourite Michael Jackson songs. Many happy memories and even more fantastic photos for the wedding album! A BIG Thank you!

Tom Tubbs
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you very much for the gig you did at Stapeley Water Gardens last week for the Feaver wedding reception. I enjoyed the music a lot, and wanted to say cheers!
