"Thanks to their professionalism and can-do attitude, Cosmic Balloon saved our wedding day. Both during and after the reception, several of our friends came up to tell us how much they enjoyed the music. One person asked if they are famous, to which I replied "No, but they should be." Hopefully they'll be famous one day and I'll be able to smugly tell people that they came all the way from London to play at our wedding in the Lake District :) Guys - if you are reading this, thank you very much again!"

"Just wanted to send a massive thank you to your band for playing at our wedding. You truly made the day so much better, we knew you'd be fab but you surpassed all expectations! All our guests keep commenting on how good you were. David and I could barely do our first dance because we were crying from how beautiful your version of 'It Must Be Love' was. One of the highlights for me was when Joss got on the drums, thank you for including her! I've never seen her play like that before!!"

Karen & Simon - Wedding
"Entertainment Nation were crucial in finding our perfect wedding band. We had a very specific idea of what we wanted, then we found a band EN and they were already booked. Magically, we were recommended an even better band to meet our desires. From there, all the correspondence was super easy and professional. They helped to make wedding planning painless and very successful."
Nicole - Wedding - London
"Booked Cosmic Ballon for our wedding. And another band. Cosmic Balloon had never played with a another band at a wedding before, but you'd never know. They were truly incredible! And just took it in their stride, our guests were blown away. I was just in awe. Can't even put into words how talented they are. I looked for months, took longer to find this band, than I did my dress! To find a band that actually plays an sings better than the original songs!!! Its madness they are not famous. Thank you for staying for a dance too. You were all such lovely gentleman, I really hope to see you all again one day. Can't thank you enough for the best day of my life that you guys was the main part of it. Apart from marrying my beloved of course! Cheers Entertainment Nation too, for being quick to answer emails an phone calls! And so accommodating."

"It was such a pleasure to have you at our wedding. Without you it wouldn't have been near as special and we are so happy you enjoyed it as well. There is already talk of having a reunion at the chateau and bringing you back if you'll have us!!"
Mae - Wedding
"Absolutely fantastic band - I would 100% recommend and would definitely book them again. They sounded great and were all really nice guys too! Lots of people at our wedding commented on how good the band were, they definitely made the night what it was."
SJ - Wedding
"We were looking for something a bit different and they are fantastic choice for anyone who loves rock and indie music. The band were friendly and everything ran smoothly. The dance floor was busy all night and so many friends have talked about how much they enjoyed the music and what a great choice of band they were. Was able to join them on stage for a song at the end of the night which will be a great memory for us and our guests."
Rachel - Wedding
"I just wanted to say that your guys were outstanding, professional, humble, and great at dealing with the pesky noise limiter. The events managers at the venue thought you were one of the best bands they have ever had. So I have passed on your information. (If you don't mind). I wish you and the band all the best. Cheers again!"
Rob & Sophia - Wedding
"We booked Cosmic Balloon to play our reception as well as the evening and we're so glad we did. Their lush semi-acoustic set provided the perfect backdrop to reception drinks. The mic for speeches broke halfway through my dad's but the lads rushed to the rescue with some of their kit so my dad could continue. My mum also gave them a secret mission to learn a traditional Polish celebratory song and they accompanied our guests in singing it. It was so special and funny. The band learned Tender by Blur for our first dance in a v short space of time and performed it beautifully. The set steadily built up steam so by the end of the night everyone was sweaty and flailing about the dancefloor with wild abandon. Who knew Hey Jude could be cranked up to be such a banger! Enormous thanks to all of the band- what absolute legends. They were so easy to deal with, turned up on time, were lovely to all our guests, had a great aesthetic, played with energy for hours and hours - a stellar troupe of musicians!"

Sian - Wedding
"Cosmic Balloon were the highlight of our party. They communicated well, arrived promptly and were charming. Their playing, singing, ability to gauge an audience and get them dancing is second to none. They wowed us and all our guests. Seeing them play was like stumbling on a secret gig from the sixties or seventies and feeling like you had discovered something truly unique, exciting and unforgettable. I'd hire them again in a shot!"
Rebecca - Party
"Thank you so, so, so much for the awesome day of music you gave us. You were just phenomenal from start to finish - we've had so many comments from friends and family about what an incredible atmosphere you created. We're so glad we booked you for the day set as well as the evening set - it really added a special edge to the day and you're all such lovely fellas. Thanks also for coming to the rescue with the mic during the speeches, you absolutely saved my dad's bacon! I cannot stress how much we enjoyed your sets - you had people on the dancefloor who are dyed in the wool stand-at-the-edge-head-bobbers. Incredible scenes!"
Joanna - Wedding
"This band is awesome. From start to finish they smashed it. A busy wedding day was made much easier as they arrived on time and set up ready to start playing at the appropriate time. We were lucky with our weather, and the band took the initiative and set up for the afternoon set outside, which really worked well with how our day panned out. We also had the band play in the evening, where the tempo was increased and the volume too, much to the enjoyment of our guests, filling the dance floor all evening. If you are reading this review and looking for a great band with a solid playlist, you can't go wrong with Cosmic Balloon! An excellent group setting the vibe we wanted with seemingly effortless musical talent. Thank you!"
Chris & Ros - Wedding
"We booked Cosmic Balloon for our wedding and were absolutely blown away by how amazing they were! They went above and beyond our expectations, such a talented group of musicians who really kept the party going. So many of our guests have said how great the band were - nobody wanted to leave the dance floor and it was still crowded for the last song! The fact that all four of them can sing means they've got a great repertoire and happily learnt a new song for our first dance, which sounded like something they'd played together for years. We chatted through what songs we do and don't like before the event and they were very accommodating. We sang with them for a few songs, too, and it was so much fun! Highly recommended for any event."
Emily - Wedding - Kent
"We just wanted to say a huge thanks to all of you for making our wedding an amazing day. Every single one of our guests have not stopped talking about the fantastic band, and I guess it was proof as the dancefloor was busy all night. I honestly could not stop dancing, I had such a fabulous time. But we also wanted to thank you for allowing our daughter Gracie to play on the drums, it was a magical moment for us, we felt so proud. THANK YOU. We and many of my family would love to come and see you play again and we'll definitely be recommending you. Thank you all once again."
Sue, Neal & Gracie - Wedding
"We booked Cosmic Balloon as our wedding band and couldn't recommend them enough! Communication was great, we had a full telephone consultation to talk us through the night. They went above and beyond to learn our own choice of first dance, and the setlist felt totally customised to us and our tastes. The energy they brought to the set was amazing and people were dancing all night! Thank you so much for making the evening so special."
Robynne - Wedding
"We wanted to say a huge thanks to the whole band for an amazing evening on Saturday. We had so many people say how great you were and how much fun the party was. Your playing was so tight, the set list was perfect and people were dancing the entire night. All the best and thanks again for everything!"
Rob and Poppy - Wedding
"Just wanted to touch base again and say a massive thanks to you guys from me and Zena. You nailed it, everyone was saying at the afterparty that the band were amazing, so thanks for adding the icing on top of a special day."
Wedding Entertainment Client
"What can I say you were absolutely outstanding, people are still talking about our band and it felt like we were at your gig which is exactly what we wanted. You're all such lovely people and so very talented and just blew everyone away. The first song was epic and stopped our crowd in their tracks mostly raging that they hadn't thought of that for their first dances! The last song was poignant as a big Libertines fan, The Fleetwood Mac and Stones songs (and all the songs) were unreal. Gimme Shelter is my most favourite ever song but I never saw that on your repertoire and was in heaven when I heard it. Best band that played at a wedding ever, thank you for being amazing."
Mairi - Wedding
"Just a note to say thanks for such a fantastic Saturday evening. You were absolutely superb and by far the highlight of the weekend. We were talking about the evening song by song for the whole of Sunday. I can't thank you all enough for your efforts and for being so accommodating of us all. I hope to see you all again soon."
Michael - Party
"We cannot thank you enough for putting on such an incredible performance for our wedding. It genuinely made our night and I couldn't stop dancing! We had so many people say how amazing you were. A night to remember! Hope your travel home wasn't too bad! I will definitely recommend you to other friends!"
Tiffany & Stephen - Wedding
"The band were absolutely phenomenal, they totally made our wedding! It was so easy to book through Entertainment Nation and settle any early queries and the band were so responsive and accommodating as we got closer to the date. The balloons are so talented - real musicians - and they helped us have the best party on the night. No request was too much, they were friendly, approachable and the venue were delighted with just how professional they all were. Not to mention that they played an absolute stormer of a set list and are just so versatile with their skills.If anyone was considering booking them I would 100% recommend them - 5/5 for sure!Thanks for everything entertainment nation did to help us have the wedding of our dreams."
Vicky - Wedding - Herefordshire
"Cosmic Balloon were fantastic. They have an excellent repertoire from loads of different genres so there's something for everyone. Lots of our guests commented on how good they were and how much they enjoyed it. Would highly recommend them."
Louise - Wedding - Kent
"Cosmic Balloon is INCREDIBLE. We are a wedding venue and have seen hundreds of bands and DJ's perform. Cosmic Balloon are among one of the best bands we have had the pleasure of hosting."
Richard - Wedding
"Cosmic Balloon were perfection. We really didn't want another 'wedding band' but equally we wanted a band that would be fun and cool and get everyone on the dance floor. The set list meant we had big expectations and they surpassed them. So, so many of our guests have told us how much they enjoyed the band and we could not have been happier. We did not leave the dance floor the entire evening, which was precisely the plan :) Dancing our first dance to a live track was really special and as predicted the band smashed it. In the lead up to the wedding the band were really flexible and responsive. Booking on Entertainment Nation was straightforward and any question was answered immediately. Thank you, Laura & Matt"
Laura and Matt - Wedding - Winchester
"Pure 5 star. These guys are ridiculous musicians! The four of them put their heart and slow into the whole show. We were a little nervous about booking a band through the internet that we hadn't seen before. We are so glad we did. We will never forget cosmic balloon. Especially belting out wake up by arcade fire! If you are in any doubt, don't be - just book them. "
Phillip P - Party
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Cosmic Balloon. Before the wedding they were very easy to communicate and very accommodating with any song requests and equipment and noise level requests. They played an acoustic set for the meal which everyone absolutely loved. And then evening sets which really got the party going. A great band and lovely people."
Avjeet G - Wedding
"Just a quick note to say thank you so much to you and the guys for the music throughout our wedding day. From your instrumentals in the ceremony, to the chilled stripped back 3 piece during the ceremony, to rocking the place all night, you were superb! In terms of a review, in addition to the above, I could not recommend Cosmic Balloon enough, you are all such talented musicians and really know how to not only get the crown going, but keep them going!..... I lost count of the amount of people asking where I found the band, I heard nothing but positive superlatives to describe you. The range of music, quality of singing and playing..... just phenomenal! Thanks again, and hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did! Will definitely be recommending you and using you for any future events!"
Adam H - Wedding
"Cosmic Balloon were amazing, they made our wedding party and we couldn't have asked for a more talented band. Everyone at the party commented on how good the band were, with lots saying they were the best live band they'd seen. These guys are really talented and the range of music that they can play is astounding. We would recommend booking this band, they are friendly and will bring the party to any event! Thanks again, Abi & Rob!"
Wedding Band Review
"Cosmic Balloon made the reception! They were outstanding, My Wife and I barely left the dance floor all night. Everyone I've spoken to pointed out the band as a highlight of the day, they were cool and so much fun. Thank you so much for everything it wouldn't have been the same without you, I could not recommend you enough a mark out of 5 would be 1000! The booking process was easy and very accommodating, I spoke to Mike who was very friendly and did everything possible to make the performance fit the night. Worth every penny thanks again, a truly spectacular performance."
Live Wedding Band
"Cosmic Balloon is a band of another level! It began the day BEFORE our destination wedding in Italy (when the band arrived) they played beautiful, acoustic songs until late evening hours getting everyone excited and ready for the next (BIG) day. It was so special. On our wedding day, Stephen Wigmore learned an acoustic, instrumental song for me to walk down the aisle to - it put all those wedding nerves to rest. During the cocktail hour they played spanish guitar (they are literally so talented!), and for the evening they learned the extremely difficult Kate Bush "Running Up That Hill" stripped down for our first dance... Needless to say, they had people dancing until the next morning. They were so personable and we not only had an unforgettable wedding, but made some great friends with the band! Thank you so much Cosmic Ballon & Entertainment Nation for making our wedding day so special!"
Live Band Review
"Over the two nights we worked with Cosmic Balloon they became part of the Tullamore D.E.W. family. I was incredibly impressed by their professionalism, flexibility, musicianship and their passion for what they do. They delivered two barn storming performances, stayed on longer than they should and even learned a new tune for us, which was outstanding. I would work with them again tomorrow and recommend them to anyone looking for an accomplished band who will rock the house."
