"We were so happy we chose The Lightmen for our wedding. They absolutely made the evening party by planning an excellent set which had all of our guests, from 5 year olds to 75 year olds, dancing all night. The energy and enthusiasm The Lightmen put into their performance was incredible - we don't think their promo video does them justice! Many of our guests commented on how much they loved the band. Communication before the wedding was clear and easy and the guys were able to work to our venue's requirements. We highly recommend them!"
Tara & David - Wedding - Cumbria
"Choosing The Lightmen for our wedding was the easiest wedding decision we made. Right from when first we saw them on the Entertainment Nation website, we knew they were who we wanted. We both used to love going out and seeing bands (back when we used to go 'out out'), and The Lightmen reminded us of that, and had a repertoire of songs that we loved. We also loved that they would learn a wedding song, man the DJ, and were able to play an acoustic set earlier in the evening. Everybody who came to our wedding loved the band. We've had so many comments about how much fun they were - and how talented they were - we would've hated it if people hadn't have danced or thought our bad was cheesy. We've already talked so many times about what parties in the future we can book Lightmen for. Thanks for making our wedding absolutely amazing!"
Wedding Band Review
"From the off The Lightmen were absolutely perfect. The band contacted us well in advance of the wedding and were extremely friendly, helpful and open. All communication was hassle-free and they were always willing to offer their professional advice on any queries we had. We hired them for an acoustic set, which was amazing, followed by a full 2 hour set from the 3 piece band. All the guests commented on just how talented they were and I can honestly say I've never seen a dance floor so full for so long - they kept it packed and booming well into the early hours! As well as taking extra care with our own personal requests the band also used their artistic licence and payed some fabulous mash-ups which were a definitely a crowd pleaser. Overall they are a fantastically talented and extremely professional band who were fully flexible to the timings of the day (and we all know how weddings can overrun!). I'd have absolutely no reservations about recommending them or booking them again for a future function."
Dale L - Wedding - North Yorkshire
"We booked the Lightmen to perform at our wedding. It was one of the best choices we made, their music was so good! We had good communication with them leading up to the wedding and they were very professional on the day. Thanks for everything!"
Wedding Band Review
"The Lightmen lit up our wedding! My new husband is a musician himself so it took us ages to find the right band. Even then he was still dubious about how good The Lightmen would be. All I can say is they delivered and he doesn't have doubts about them anymore! All three are excellent musicians who got everyone dancing, plus they're friendly guys too! We wouldn't hesitate to book them again. 5/5"
Live Wedding Music
"The Lightmen made my day! I couldn't have wished for a better band to play at our reception. All of our guests loved them and I don't remember leaving the dance floor all night. I'm still getting messages from friends saying how awesome they were. Thank you so much, we'd recommend them to anyone!"
Band For Weddings
"Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. The Lightmen were exactly what I wanted and more for my party. They were so professional and really friendly guys. Contacting them before the event was really easy and they were happy change up their DJ set to include the songs I wanted. It was such an easy process and I'll definitely be recommending them to anyone I know who's throwing a party or getting married! Thanks again :)"
Party Band Review

Weeting Rally Review
"The Lightmen were absolutely amazing - had people dancing all night and played great music all night to ensure everyone was having fun. The Lightmen were the first band we looked at on Entertainment Nation and we booked the straight away! We kept playing their preview video between booking them and the wedding and they went above and beyond how good we'd imagined they were. Guys, thank you so much you really did make it truly special."
Wedding Band Review
"Thank you very much we had an amazing day! The Lightmen were fantastic! Everyone loved the music, they got everyone on the dance floor for the whole night and played great songs! We had 3 sets with a DJ in between which worked very well for our guests. We loved how they were able to play a first dance which made that very special. They were very contactable and answered all our questions prior to the day. Their performance was amazing, we enjoyed all the songs and they took lots of requests during the DJ sets. We would highly recommend the Lightmen! Thanks Toby & Meghan Vickery "
Live Wedding Band
"The Lightmen were an absolutely brilliant addition to our wedding and made sure the mood was just right throughout the day. We had a solo lounge set during the drinks reception and the full band for the evening - our guests haven't stopped commenting on how great they were. Thanks so much, we would definitely book again! 5/5"
Wedding Band Review
"We are beyond happy with the service we received from Entertainment Nation and with The Lightmen's performance. From our first enquiry to Entertainment Nation, we knew we would be well looked after. Any query I had was answered by Joe at Entertainment Nation quickly and in a friendly manner. I am so grateful for that because it took a lot of stress out of wedding planning and made the process of booking a band an absolute pleasure. The Lightmen themselves were phenomenal - easily a 5/5! Communication was excellent - they were responsive to all our enquiries in a timely and friendly manner. Payment was smooth and hassle-free."
Live Wedding Band Review
"The Lightmen performed at our Christmas wedding on 22nd December 2018. They were fantastic, kept everyone on the dance floor and we didn't want them to finish! Many of our guests also commented on how good they were. They were in contact about a month before the wedding which was reassuring and also learnt our first dance for us which was very special. They are professional and are a lovely bunch of guys we definitely recommend them to anyone."
Christmas Wedding Review

Live Band Review
"We booked The Lightmen for our wedding and we were so excited to hear them on the night. They were so amazing and all of our guests loved them too. The dance floor was full all night during their sets and the DJ service in between was brilliant too. Thank you for making our day even more special! Oh and their rendition of our first dance was exactly what I had dreamed of so THANKYOU! I'd recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat!"
Wedding Band Review
"We booked the Lightmen for our wedding and it was the best decision we made! We wanted something a bit different and the band were exactly what we were looking for. The Lightmen were so good live. I can't count how many times people came up to me and commented on how good they were. My feet were sore from all the dancing! They were really nice guys too. They did everything they could to make sure we weren't stressing out about the entertainment and went about their work in a professional manner. I'd give The Lightmen 5 stars plus!"
Live Wedding Band

Function Band Review
"Thank you to both Entertainment nation and The Lightmen for your services at our wedding last week. The booking process was easy, the bands contact and liaising with us was perfect and the performance was awesome. Every one of our guests loved their music and out everyone in a great mood for the rest of the night! 5 out of 5! Thank you very much :)"
Mike and Chloe - Wedding - Gloucestershire
"We would give both Entertainment Nation and The Lightmen 5 stars. Entertainment Nation were very easy to use, we feel the process of searching, contacting and booking the band we wanted was very easy indeed. The forms made complete sense and the build up contact worked smoothly for us. On the Lightmen they were tremendous from start to finish. Really got the crowd going and everyone up dancing. Amazing vocals and we cannot count how many of our guests complimented us on our choice of band. So pleased we booked them as they topped off our wedding day perfectly!"
Carl and Charlotte - Wedding - Nottinghamshire
"From start to finish the communication with Entertainment Nation and the Lightmen was amazing. Booking the band was really easy, they communicated with us at every step and asked any questions or queries we had. On the night of the wedding the band were fantastic, all are guests commented on how great they were- they had all ages from 2 to 70 up dancing with such a great choice of songs- my husband and I really loved the way they played our first dance song!! We couldn't have asked for a better service and band :)"
Michelle and John - Wedding - Norfolk
"The Lightmen delivered exactly what we were looking for and loads more. Their communication pre event was faultless, their flexibility around our choice of first dance was excellent and they kept people excited and on the dance floor all night. The only down side was that they had to stop...our guests would have been happy if they had carried on until the early hours. We could not recommend them highly enough! Chris & Kellie"
Chris and Kellie - Wedding - Essex
"The Lightmen were the perfect band for our Wedding Day. We knew from watching a few of their videos that they were the band that we wanted but in person they were even better. They were such party starters and made our night. 5 out of 5, 10/10, amazing!"
Alex - Wedding - Tamworth
"The Lightmen were absolutely incredible on our wedding day! The acoustic set in the day created the perfect chilled atmosphere and the evening sets kept the dance floor full! The band were a main topic of conversation the next morning, with so many of our guests commenting on how amazing they were. Our contact with you at Entertainment Nation was so quick and efficient. You and the band were flexible with our timings. We'd thoroughly recommend The Lightmen to anyone who wants their guests up dancing all night long! Thanks again for making our day amazing and so much fun!"
Hannah and Rohan - Wedding - Berkshire
"I give both yourself and the band a 5 star rating. You made the booking easy and seamless. The band were fantastic. Communication was excellent and I could not have had a better band they were amazing. I would recommend both the band and yourself in a heartbeat."
Lisa - Wedding - Northamptonshire
"The Lightmen were amazing! 5 Stars from me, they brought the noise & we danced away! We had an epic party & they headlined it! All the guests we spoke to commented on how brilliant the bad were! The rest of us were on the dance floor giving it the big one cause of the music to dance to!! The contact from the Lightmen was great & the information I provided them meant they arrived & set up without myself & the guests even knowing. They sorted themselves & looked the part from the start. They were incredibly professional. Booking through yourself was effortless. The whole process was easy & the outcome was brilliant!"
Tom and Laura - Wedding - Devon
"5 out of 5 We were both so pleased we chose The Lightmen for our band at our wedding. They were so friendly, accommodating and talented. All contact on the build up to the wedding was via Charles, he was very good at answering any questions I had and getting back to me promptly. The lead singer was very friendly when I went to say hi on our wedding day, he reconfirmed our wishes for the evening and said they were super flexible to our needs. It goes without saying how talented the trio are, they learnt 2 songs specially for us which was so kind. One of which is our 2 year old Nephew's favourite, it made his day. They really knew how to work the crowd and knew when was the right time to play different types of songs. The DJ set at the end of the evening was also everything we asked for in the way of cheese! We would definitely recommend The Lightmen. Everyone from all ages loved them."
Charlie and Kevin - Wedding - Hertfordshire
"The Lightmen were absolutely fantastic and we couldn't have asked for better. We were both blown away. They were so helpful with our surprise first dance and song requests. They performed tribute as our requested song and it was the highlight of our night, it was so good. My dad is now trying to find another event to plan so he can book them again! I've had so many people ask who they were and say how good they were. They really made our evening celebrations everything we hoped for. We do have a few pictures but we are waiting on them to be sent from the Photographer so once i have them i'll get them sent over. Out of five we would give a 6. The whole band were so lovely, not only when they were playing but when the fish and chips were served chatting with guest's and us, having a go in the photo booth! Really cannot say enough good things about them,they were everything we could have hoped for and more!"
Candy and Jordan - Wedding - Norfolk
"They were excellent! Our speeches and food ran over a little bit so they were late in setting up but endeavoured to do it super quick. The music was amazing, everything we'd hoped for and we have them quite a technical first dance song which they played perfectly. All of our guests really enjoyed them and the music, and the band even entertained some requests.'
Duncan and Annabell - Wedding - Leicestershire
"The Lightmen are absolutely incredible! All of our guests have said how amazing they are. They were so accommodating of our requests in the build up to the day, and their performance of our first dance was unbelievable. We are so glad we found them and wish we could watch the performance again and again. We would recommend The Lightmen to anyone who is looking for a band, they will not disappoint. We would rate them 5/5 (higher if we could!) Thanks so much!"
Kayleigh & Richard - Wedding - Gloucestershire
"The Lightmen band was one the highlights of our day! They sang our first dance song and it could have not been more perfect, it really made the moment so special for us. The Lightmen got all of our guests dancing, every guest told us how amazing they were! Thank you so much guys, it was a great night!"
Wedding Entertainment Client
"The Lightmen were everything we expected and more. Our guests loved them and haven't stopped talking about them since the wedding. They accommodated all of our requests amazingly, the variety of music they played was absolutely perfect and had us and the guests dancing non stop - I don't think I left the dance floor for the entire duration of their sets. The easiest 5 out of 5 stars I've ever given!"
Emma - Wedding
"We're so pleased we picked The Lightmen to perform at our wedding. From day one of seeing their promo on Entertainment Nations website we knew they were the band for us! They were so professional and just great guys, we couldn't recommend them enough. Booking the band through Entertainment Nation couldn't have been any simpler, any queries we had were always answered promptly. The Lightmen really made our day that extra bit special right down from their performance to learning our chosen song 'Tenerife Sea'. It's been a month since our wedding and we still have guests telling us what an amazing band they were!"
