"My wife and I were delighted with The Crooks performance, and we heard nothing but positive things from our guests. We were so pleased that they played our request Earth Angel for our first dance. But that they completely unbidden followed it with Johnny B. Goode was simply perfect! Great musicianship and vocals, prompt and friendly, sharply dressed. We would gladly book The Crooks again for any event. 5/5."
Wedding Band Review
"The band were really excellent, they had people dancing from the first song right through to the end and I saw people running onto the dance floor for certain songs. At least two dozen people told me how great they were and how they were the best band they have seen at a wedding and I must say I agree."
Live Band Review
"The band went down a storm. I wanted to do it all again the following weekend. They were fantastic!"
Birthday Party Band
"Paul and I would just like to thank you for performing at our wedding on Saturday. We had a great time, and you really made our night. Many of our guests have commented on how great you guys were, you really got people moving with your varied song selection. We would not hesitate to book you again in the future should we require a band for any occasion, and we will definitely be recommending you to friends/family. Many Thanks!"
