Unforgettable!
"You guys made our wedding in to the most awesome party we have ever been to, and our guests haven't stopped talking about how much fun they had. An amazing, note-perfect group of musicians who completely exceeded our expectations of a wedding band!! Plus Baz was an absolute star throughout the booking process; nothing was ever to much trouble. Thank you so much to all four of you for making our wedding such an amazing and unforgettable night!!!"

Simply Superb!
"What can we say other than absolutely brilliant!!! They rocked it and every single one of our guests danced like crazy all night long! We've lost count of how many people commented that The Benedicts were one of the best wedding bands they've ever heard. So thank you Baz & The Benedicts - Simply superb! Punctual, easy-going, organised, professional and super talented... and so accommodating, especially for our slightly different choice of first dance!"

Would Recommend Them In A Heartbeat!
"Working with Baz and The Benedicts was honestly an absolute pleasure from beginning to end. It was really important for Simon & I to find a band that would sound AMAZING and get our guests flocking to the dancefloor. Well..... mission accomplished! If you are reading this then you will know how stressful it can be planning a wedding. I just wish ALL the suppliers who we dealt with throughout the process had been as professional, communicative, reassuring and genuinely nice as The Benedicts were! On to the night itself - The Benedicts played a fantastic repertoire of covers impeccably, yet also managed to make each tune their own. This is a seriously talented and fun group of guys who are truly great at what they do, and they are still one of the main talking points from our wedding; we had so much fun and would recommend them in a heartbeat!"

Can't go wrong with a classic cheesy love song!

Yikes! There are just soooo many to choose from! Put it this way - it doesn't go in our repertoire unless we know that it's going to fill a dance-floor!

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

A little band called The Beatles were kind of a big deal...
