    "We booked The Shortwaves for our wedding and we're so glad that we did! They were absolutely amazing and we got so many compliments from our guests on how good and how much fun they were. We had guests on the dance floor all night! The process of booking them and liaising with the band in the run up was really seamless as well. The guys were absolutely lovely and super professional on the day. If you're a fan of pop/indie/rock and you're looking for a band to keep the party going, definitely book these guys!"
    Rosie - Wedding - Hertfordshire
    "We booked The Shortwaves for our joint 25th Wedding Anniversary and daughter's 21st birthday - they were absolutely fantastic. Lovely guys who went out of their way to make it a perfect night. The range of music genres they played was brilliant and all our guests were blown away by how good they were - so much so they have secured another booking out of it. Entertainment Nation are a great company to go through - the booking process was easy and communication with Elliott was fantastic."
    Laura - Party - Greater Manchester
    "We recently hired The Shortwaves to play at our wedding evening reception. The booking process through Entertainment Nation was super smooth and easy. The band were absolutely incredible and had most people up on the dance floor all night long and wanting more when it came to an end! A superb set list which contained a great mix of the old and new, and very professional service overall. The band and their admin were also great at communicating with us beforehand and making sure everything was planned and sorted in good time. We would highly recommend hiring The Shortwaves for your event!"
    Edward - Wedding - Staffordshire
    "We got married end of September and this band was awesome. We had them during the day and evening and would highly recommend them to anyone."
    Andy - Wedding - Hertfordshire
    "We recently had The Shortwaves for our wedding and they were amazing!! Had everyone on the dance floor all night and we were all begging for more when it had ended. They sang our first dance song for us and it was just perfect. I highly recommend these guys, they are lovely and just added that extra something to our big day. Thank you so much!!"
    Laura - Wedding - Leicestershire
    "We absolutely loved having The Shortwaves play at our wedding. They were absolutely fantastic and it was a perfect end to our day. To start with, we are so grateful that the band could accommodate us delaying the wedding 3 times due to Covid - the correspondence through Entertainment Nation was quick and professional. The band turned up in good time and were very self sufficient in setting up with no issues. The performances and set list were amazing - tunes to suit the crowd and some indie belters we loved. Every guest was on their feet, dancing long into the night and didn't want them to end - I think they persuaded two encores! 5/5 would recommend to everyone. Thanks to the band again and good luck in the future!"
    Josh - Wedding
