    "We hired The Collective for our daughter's wedding last weekend and I wanted to say how much everyone at the function enjoyed the band. The dance floor was packed from the first note to the last and we all thoroughly enjoyed the mix of music. The band were ultra professional, well organised and extremely friendly. If anyone out there is looking for the perfect band for a wedding then this is the band. Thanks for making a special day even better and thanks to Tom for his help in setting up the day"
    Wedding Band Review
    "Booking The Collective for our annual dinner was made extremely easy and hassle free by Rachel and the team at Entertainment Nation, so a huge thank you to them. The band themselves were fantastic. From the quality of the vocals, to the guys playing the instruments, to the song choices, everything was superb and there was definitely a little something in there for everyone. Our crowd usually proves a hard one to get moving and up on the dance floor but the guys were not deterred and ended up with one of the best turn outs of people showing off their dance moves. The guys were great and very helpful, especially when our timings ran over and into their scheduled start time. They adjusted easily for us, which was great. Definitely five stars all day long. Thank you guys, you were utterly fantastic!!"

    Wedding Band Review
    "I must say the band were absolutely fantastic! Totally delivered on all fronts. The extra horn instruments I asked them to add were no problem for them, and really made the amazing setlist they produced sound amazing. The guys has huge pizaz and really filled the room, the dance floor was quite literally full all night! I would totally recommend them to add some spunk to any wedding day! They also were very professional in getting in, setting up, jamming, tearing down and leaving the venue in good time. Can't glow about them enough - they really made our day!"
    Wedding Band Review
    "We had a weekend wedding festival, and in total booked 5 x bands to play over two days, although all the bands were excellent, the one that stood out from the crowd was The Collective. They instantly got the whole marquee rocking with a very clever diverse play list, I do not believe Jamie will be on this circle of venues this time next year, and we feel that we have been privileged to have been able to book him. Entertainment-nation were a fantastic to deal with and made the whole process enjoyable."
    Wedding Band Review
    "Entertainment nation were very helpful and super responsive, even replying on weekends. The band were easy to deal with via email as we live overseas. Their track list was extensive and they were able to accommodate our song requests. On the day they put on a great show and had the dance floor filled all night. Everyone from our youngest guests to our oldest were up on their feet. Thanks for making it a great day."

    "Jamie was recommended to me via a friend for our wedding. All of the boys were extremely welcoming and polite and far exceeded our expectations. We decided to go with the extra DJ set in the middle of their 2 x 1 hour sets. They kept perfectly to schedule and had all of my family and friends up dancing all night! They even stuck around afterwards for a drink and are all so lovely to speak to. Thank you so much Jamie and all of the other guys for making this a night to remember."

    "You guys are just FAB! Jamie and the band learnt our first song wonderfully! Their timings were perfect which put me at ease as I'm such a 'bridezilla' - although on our part there was a slight delay, they had no problem adapting to the situation. I highly recommend these guys for any wedding or event. Good luck and great to meet you all"

    Wedding Band Hire Review
    "We booked The Collective for our corporate annual event. We recognised Jamie from The X Factor and were apprehensive at first as we'd never hired a band before. Thankfully the boys exceeded our expectations and even learnt some request's especially for the evening. We will be having them back next year and our clients are aiming to book them for forthcoming corporate events too. Highly recommended, thank you"

    Party Band Review
    "We were so impressed with The Collective and are so pleased we chose them to perform at our wedding. They learnt the song for our first dance in a matter of weeks and played it perfectly - making the first dance less daunting! The dance floor was always full and they even got a conga and limbo going! As a group they were very friendly and made the effort to talk to us and our guests before, between and after their sets. Thank you for making our wedding day so special - without doubt would highly recommend them for any event."
    Wedding Band Review
    "We booked The Collective band for our corporate staff summer party. Rachel made booking the band very easy and straight forward and was there to answer any additional questions. The band I had worked with before and they are a fantastic band, play a great selection of music to get everyone dancing and also have DJ facilities to play music between sets. They contacted us ahead of the day and were flexible with our timings, especially on the day when we need to alter timings. They are a great band and really easy to work with, professional but down to earth. Our staff all loved them and it was great to have live music for this party. We work definitely work with them and Entertainment Nation again"

    "Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thankyou for hooking me up with The Collective for my wedding day. So many people commented on how good they were! They were all so friendly and played on despite the fact that it was the hottest day of the year and there was no air con in the hall! Please pass on my thanks to them for finishing the day off in style."
