We have been overwhelmed with positive feedback about the night and how good you guys were. If anyone is looking for a Top Band that will get people up and dancing all night, The Rhythm Detectives are who you show be booking. Thanks again to you all!!!"

    "We were extremely happy with the service we received from Entertainment Nation. We found a wide range of bands to choose from on Entertainment Nation website and information about the bands was spot on. The staff at EN were very friendly and professional, they were quickly able to confirm that the Rhythm Detectives were available. Information provided about how to book, costs and contracts was clear and concise and any queries we had the staff were very happy to help. The Rhythm Detectives were an amazing band. The band contacted me before the wedding to confirm all the arrangements and to discuss song choices. I really appreciated this. The band were so friendly and arrived at the venue early .Their style of music was right up our street and they had everyone up and dancing for their entire sets. Many of our guests have commented how much they enjoyed the band. We would definitely recommend them to other bride and grooms and for parties. They made our wedding reception a night we'll never forget!"
    Emma - Wedding - West Midlands
    "The Rhythm Detectives played at our wedding in Warwickshire a couple of weeks ago and honestly, they made the entire day/night. They were incredible! Totally professional and lovely, as well as being top notch musicians and performers. We love live music so we spent ages looking through clips to find the perfect band for the night, and these guys delivered, couldn't recommend them more. Thanks all for the amazing memories we will cherish forever!"
    Mark - Wedding - Warwickshire
    "Just to say thanks so much for all the effort you put in for our wedding yesterday. Every single person we've spoken to has said how incredible you were. It was exactly what we wanted!"
    Dan & Ruth - Wedding
    "How lucky were we to manage to land such a great band for our marquee wedding! Everything from the lead up, the planning and the actual day was great. Dan was so helpful going through logistics, timings and the set list (we had a right mix of requests from our guests which the band all accommodated brilliantly either in their sets or in the DJ section). The set up on the day was so subtle we hardly noticed them during the wedding breakfast. They were great having our first dance played then seamlessly started their first set and man did it just get better! The dance floor was packed for the whole night with everyone having a great time. I think every single guest we had commented on how great the band were. I can't recommend this band more highly, if you get the opportunity to have them play at your event just book them! Thank you so much for making our day so much fun."
    Susie - Wedding
    "We booked The Rhythm Detectives for our wedding. WOW - from the moment they started their set the dancefloor was full and they judged the crowd just right. Their communication was fab and they took time to undertsand us as a couple. We had lots of compliments from guests about the music. Thank you for adding so much to our special day"
    Zoe - Wedding
    "We had the Rhythm Detectives perform at our wedding and they were AMAZING! Dan was in contact before the wedding to make sure we had the playlists we wanted, the set lists were exactly what we were after and made sure the dance floor was bouncing the whole night! They made our night and I know we'll be seeing you all at friends events in the future! Thanks again for a brilliant evening!"
    Emily & Rob - Wedding
    "We used the band for our mess summer ball. From the outset the communication was great. The performance was amazing they got the whole crowd dancing. One word review = Quality"
    Ash - RAF Summer Ball
    "If you're thinking about booking this band .. DO IT! We booked The Rhythm Detectives for our wedding and they are incredible singers, performers and all round nice guys. The weather was amazing and that stopped people going inside and dancing at the beginning but that didn't stop them and in their second set the dance floor was full! Lots of our guests commented on how amazing they were after the event too! Very easy to communicate with on the lead up, listened to my song requests and made sure everyone was having a great time! Thanks so much for making our wedding reception as amazing as it was!!"
    Nicole - Wedding
    "We loved it. The whole thing, from the acoustic set to the evening, was great. Your choice of songs was perfect, and I think you guys really suited our vibe. We got so many compliments on how good you guys were musically as well as entertaining. We really hope you enjoyed it too. Good luck with everything, and thanks again!"
    Sam and Luke - Wedding - Surrey

Many guests were complimentary and one has even enquired as to their availability for her wedding next year! Liaising with Dan in advance of the wedding was so easy and I really felt he wanted to make the day special for us. I could not recommend them more highly! Any band performance that results in such a photo must be good! Thanks again"

We booked The Rhythm Detectives for our wedding and we were so happy with them, people were on the dance floor and singing their hearts out all night long. So many of our guests were coming up to us and raving about how good the band was. The sound and quality of the music and voices were exceptional. 10/10 from all of us! Thank you for making our day even more special, Mr and Mrs Stokes x"
    Victoria and Thomas - Wedding - Coleshill
    "From the day we started planning our wedding, music was always going to be a huge thing and we were totally set on having a band. We looked on Entertainment Nation and saw The Rhythm Detectives. The type of music they played was right up our street so we booked them straight away. Everyone at Entertainment Nation was so helpful, providing us with everything I needed and consistently replying to me in really quick time no matter what time I emailed. It was great to speak to a member of the band before the big day so that we could make specific requests for certain songs. They created a perfect set list based on our requests and it was perfect. So many people came up to us after the gig on the day and said how great they were. They really made the night and their performance was perfect. The fact they were a great bunch of lads who were a pleasure to have at our wedding was the added bonus. Would recommend to anyone!"
    Joe and Imogen - Wedding - Northamptonshire
    "What a band! They did a fantastic job of keeping our dance floor filled. Both sets comprised of a range of songs that all of our guests really enjoyed. They also performed our first dance, Paul Weller - You do something to me, which kicked the first set off in style. They kept us entertained all night! We had many remarks from our guests about how great the band were and they are still talking about them now.. There communication was spot on and they kept us informed about everything we needed to know. They were all really friendly guys and we would highly recommend this band. Thank you again for all your support!"
    Katie and Seb - Wedding - Warwickshire
    "Thank you again for being a great band! Everyone on the night commented about how great you were and people are still talking about it now. Thanks also with being patient with us on the night as we were running a bit late!! "
    Katie - Wedding
    "Awesome band! We booked these guys for our wedding reception on the 20th July and they did a fantastic job, including our first dance. Everyone was up dancing and remarked on how good they were. Highly recommend and really nice guys, thanks for a brilliant night of music!"

    Georgia and Henry - Wedding
    "We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding on July 27th. Everything was perfect and you really made the night! So many people came up to us afterwards and said how great you are. From speaking to me and Joe beforehand about our ideal set list and answering any queries we may have had, to playing like you did and making our night as special and memorable as it was, we can't thank you enough. We can't recommend you strongly enough, you were better than we could ever have hoped for."
    Joe and Imogen - Wedding - Northamptonshire
    "We booked the band for our wedding 8th June and they were great. Rather than the standard wedding playlists it was more along the lines of classic indie/rock throughout, without alienating the oldies who were loving it. Dance floor was packed from the first song. Probably best said from one of our guests: "Awesome night mate. Best wedding music I've ever experienced. And I'm really old and have experienced loads""
    Richard and Marisa - Wedding - Dorset
    "They played for my wedding at the end of may in Pembrokeshire in Wales! They were fantastic - I couldn't have asked for more! Great songs had everyone dancing! The band were far better live than on the video I saw before hand excellent guest reviews back to me about them! Spot on!!"
    Live Wedding Review
    "We booked the band to play our wedding on 12th May. They were superb from the word go. Worked with us on requests for the playlist and put together a set which had the dance floor packed. Had so many people approach me to ask about the guys and pay compliments. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day and making it a night to remember. Can't recommend you enough, and will be doing so for years to come."
