Just a quick note to say thank you SO much for the amazing performances from the band on our wedding day. They were everything we thought they would be and also really kind and lovely. I really appreciate it and it made the day even more perfect. I felt that everything was in safe hands and didnt worry about anything for a minute!

Thanks so much again and all the very best to all of you for the future.

Dimple & Matthew, Wedding at Allerton Castle



Thank you so much for providing us with such perfect wedding music at our wedding reception. The dancefloor was never empty and we loved seeing our guests boogie the night away! Thank you for helping to make our day so perfect.

Love Alice and Tim Stevenson x, Wedding at Nostell Priory.



I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for entertaining our guests and getting them to dance the night away at 'Perfect 10' Masquerade Ball on Saturday.

The event was a huge success, we have had nothing but praise from our guests, who thoroughly enjoyed the evening within the magnificent grounds of the Harewood Estate.

The evening was the perfect way to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We successfully raised well over 30,000 for The Prince Of Wales Hospice in Pontefract, which we are enormously proud of. We are now on target to hit our rather ambitious goal of raising over 100,000 for the charity over the next 18 months.

Once again a huge thank you for all your efforts.

Yours sincerely,

Charles Tweed, Business Development Director, Strategic Team Group

Charity Fundraiser at Harewood House.




We booked a band from G-Sounds to play at our wedding. We can honestly say that they were absolutely amazing and made our evening reception. Everyone commented on how excellent they were and just last week a friend contacted us to ask for your details which we had no hesitation in passing on. Many thanks to G-Sounds and the band for making our evening fantastic.

Sharon and Paul Eccleston, Wedding at The Craiglands Hotel.



Dear Sam

The band you provided put on an amazing performance for our wedding at Hollins Hall. We had numerous people ask how we managed to find such a great band. The memory of all our friends and family dancing to GnR Sweet Child O Mine will live long in the memory! We would recomend you to anyone wanting live music and a good dance.

A big thank you

Michael & Emma, Wedding at Hollins Hall.



We booked one of your acts to play at our wedding reception after seeing them play at a friends' wedding. They were absolutely brilliant on both occasions and we now have friends asking us where we found them. Loads of people commented how good it was to have a live band of this quality playing at a wedding and it made the day even more memorable for us seeing everyone dancing the night away. The selection of songs they played made sure to please everyone and it was great to see so many people enjoying themselves, the band included.

Would definitely recommend you to anyone. The best value for money I've ever seen.

Peter & Katie Smith

Wedding reception at Mount Pleasant Hotel, Doncaster.



Please can you pass on Steve and my thanks to the band for playing at our wedding at Ripley Castle on 5th June. Both we and all our guests thought they were fantastic! A few of our guests have already asked us where they can find the band, and I'm pretty sure one of my friends (Jenny Peckitt) has already booked the band for her wedding in September. I will certainly recommend your services to any of my friends who are getting married in future and to anyone getting married at Ripley Castle who is reading this, as they were both professional and helped to keep the party atmosphere going and most of our guests on the dancefloor, despite the heat inside the venue on the hot summer's day....! Thanks again! We can't wait to see the band again!

Hi Sam,

Just thought I would drop you a quick note to thank you very much for the performance at our wedding at Bolton Abbey.

We had a fantastic day from start to finish and they played a massive role in this - we had many good comments about them throughout the evening.

Thanks again for them learning our first dance - they did a great job (although I did find it hard dancing with Becks given the size of her dress!!).

Should the band ever need a reference (sure they won't), please do not hesitate to get in touch as I would be more than happy to provide one for the professional and hassle-free way you have conducted yourself from the booking process right through to the final performance from the band.

Thanks again and all the very best for the future.

Best regards,

Chris and Rebecca Reeves

Wedding at Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire



To everyone involved with G-Sounds and the band,

Helen (my now wife) and I wanted to write and say a big , big thank you to you all for performing at our wedding in Sandon Hall, Staffordshire.

You did such a great job we were over the moon. All our guests commented what a fab band were and it really made our night.

Thanks to the singer for getting me up to sing with her too and for the band to rehearse a little bit of 'Elvis' !!!! We realise it was a fair drive for you guys to come down to Staffordshire and we really appreciate it. Hopefully you enjoyed the party too.

We'll definitely be recommending you as a band to our friends.

All the very best to you all for the future and lots of success.

kind regards,

Andrew and Helen Peach

Wedding at Sandon Hall, Staffordshire



Sam

On behalf of all our guests at our wedding Cherry and I would like to thank you and the band for the amazing sets played at our reception. The number of people that came up to me on the night asking where did I find the band and how amazing they all thought they were, was a testament to their talent as a band. We can't recommend the band enough, and would like to thank you and the rest of the band as you made the night.

Kind Regards

Leigh and Cheryl Edmondson

Wedding at Marriott Hollins Hall Hotel, Baildon



Hi Sam,

Just got back from our extended honeymoon due to the ash cloud :)

We could not have wished for a better wedding, the band were amazing at the after party. The atmosphere was electric and the evening flowed smoothly from start to finish thanks to your professionalism. All our friends commented how the band were different class to anything they had seen at previous weddings. We would highly recommend and definitely book with you again.

Please pass our thanks to the band! We look forward to seeing them play again very soon.

Kind Regards, Phil & Gem

Wedding at Park Plaza, Chino Latino, Leeds.



Hi Sam,

Just want to say a huge thank you for the lovely singing during the afternoon and fantastic band at night. It was truly everything I wanted and more. It really made the day very special and can't thank you all enough. All my guests said the band were superb and wished they had found them for their weddings!

Also we have a big party once a year for family and friends and would love the band to perform.

Thanks again for making our day the best day ever

Janine and Matt Dale

Wedding at Allerton Castle



We booked a band from G-Sounds to perform as evening entertainment at our wedding and they were fantastic! So much more than just a function band or party music, they are real musicians. The singer has a stunning voice and her whole manner and the way she was engaged in the evening (as were the rest of the band) added something very special to the evening. It sounds a cliche, but its true that countless people asked "Where did you get this band from???"

John Ward

Wedding at The Mansion, Roundhay Park, Leeds



Sam

Having returned from honeymoon we just wanted to write to say thanks to you and the band for the fantastic evening of entertainment at our wedding. The band really did live up to our expectations and beyond and created a wonderful atmosphere. Our guests were equally impressed and the band certainly ensured everyone had a great evening and one that will be remembered for a long time to come. We would not hesitate in recommending the band to anyone!

Kind regards

Mike & Claire Beckett

Wedding at Oulton Hall




Hi,

Sorry it has taken sometime to get back to you. We have now returned from honeymoon and now back to work.

We had a great time and enjoyed the band very much. Everyone had a very good time. The band were fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone.

Joel even made changes to some key words (Blond hair to brown hair) it was very much appreciated, everyone said the band was great.

Thanks

Ian and Caroline.

Wedding at Best Western Mount Pleasant Hotel, Doncaster



Dear Sam,

We wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the band, they were superb at our wedding! Not only were they all amazing on the night, but you were an absolute pleasure to deal with from the moment we first contacted you through to the big-day itself and the band did an incredible job of performing our requested 1st dance song. When we were looking for a band they were the perfect choice, we loved the music they played and their professionalism. We have had so many of our guests also agree that they were spectacular and we hope they receive many more bookings as a result of this, they definitely deserve it.

We look forward to seeing you all again in Leeds soon!

Thanks again!

Hi Sam

Sorry but we're only just getting round to thanking people from the Wedding!

We'd just like to say we thoroughly enjoyed the band and EVERYBODY commented on the quality and professionalism of the band. We really appreciated you learning our choice of first dance even though you didn't have that much time to do it. You really helped to make the Wedding reception very memorable. We would have no problems recommending you to anyone else in the future.

Best Regards

Ben and Liz Ryland

'Dear Sam,

I just wanted to thank you and let you know what a fantastic night we had on the 9th. All the staff and students were raving about your band and thoroughly enjoyed every second that you were on. It really did bring the whole event to life. Thank you so much once again! You guys are fantastic!!!'

Ms Priya Kapade, Leeds University Business School Annual Ball 2009 at The Marriot Hotel, Leeds.



With G-Sounds I have absolutely no complaints. We've been here, there and everywhere, around the world to some particularly exotic locations and without doubt you provide the best bands we have ever had involved in the Corporate Games network.

Ben Sedgemore, Games Director, The World Corporate Games 2009.



Before we head off on honeymoon we just wanted to send you a quick e mail to say a huge thanks for the performance you gave at our wedding on Saturday. You guys were absolutely fantastic and really helped to make the final part of our day as perfect as what had gone before it.

The number of comments that we have had from other guests about the performance that you guys gave has been unbelievable. One of our friends who gets married next year has already texted to ask if we would mind if they tried to book you for their wedding so you will probably be getting a call from them soon.

An extra special thanks also for our first dance song. Part of the reason for choosing it was that we thought it would fit in quite well with your style of play but you more than matched our hopes on that front.

We were both saying last night that we cannot recall ever being at another wedding where the dancefloor has been so full for so much of the night and that has to be a testament you guys.

We'll definitely be seeing you again and will check out your gig dates on myspace once we are back from honeymoon.

Thanks again

Ryan and Ceri Virtue, Ripley Castle May 2009



I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the trio as they were absolutely fantastic. The music just made the event feel absolutely amazing and when they left the ambience was just not the same. I really appreciate the lengths you went to be there at our event. The band will be absolutely first choice if I do another charity event this year. Thank you once again.

Ros Raine, Radio Aire




Thanks so much to all of the band for playing at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. We had a brilliant day and your music really made the evening. Loads of our friends and family were asking about you and really loved the music that you played.

Thanks so much for helping to make it such a special day. We would highly recommend you to any of our friends.

Best wishes

Caroline and Neill Wood

Holdsworth House, Holdsworth, Halifax




We just wanted to let you all know how much we both appreciated everything you did for us on Saturday 23rd. We had the best day ever, and we are sure that it was only made possible by the efforts and professionalism of your good selves.

Everyone keeps telling us what a fantastic time they had and that it was the best wedding they had been to....ever!

So, once again, thank you all for your input in making Saturday 23rd the best day of our lives!!!!

With Kindest Regards

Thankyou once again for providing the entertainment for Jasmine's christening. I had comment after comment about the duet. The singer should go on X Factor, she were fabulous! When we have a gathering again ill be sure to contact you again.

Laura Jafari




" We had searched the internet for ages looking for the right music for our wedding when we came across G-Sounds. I dropped them an email with some vague requirements and received a response straight away with excellent suggestions of what we could do to make the day really special.

We decided to book a full package - a duet for the drinks receptions, a jazz trio for the meal and a great party band for the evening including a good DJ. The whole booking process was simple, smooth and stress free - just what every bride requires! We had absolute faith in Sam!! The band turned up and set up with no fuss - I didn't even know they had arrived until I heard the most amazing voice singing on the terrace. The band were with us the whole day - they looked great, sounded great, were very professional and whats more they were really nice people! Cherie sang our first dance song - which made it so much more personal and special.

All our guests commented on how fantastic the band were and were amazed they hadn't all been snapped up for a record deal! I would definitely recommend hiring the band through G-Sounds to anyone who is after some quality, classy and truly unique live music for an event. We will certainly keep them in mind for parties in the future. Thanks to you all - good luck and please remember us when you're a famous band making your millions!!!

Leon & Emma - Ringwood Hall



Hello Sam,

We didn't get a chance to thank the band last night, I was a little bit tipsy!! They were all amazing, all the guests commented on how amazing they were and seemed to have a fantastic time, the dance floor was never empty!!! We would be happy to recommend you to anybody, the guests from the hotel bar even asked if they could come and watch!! All the cards you gave us were taken!!

Thank you again for a wonderful show!!!

Kerry



If you are looking for a band who will make your special day complete, then I cannot recommend G-Sounds highly enough. Firstly, booking the band was very easy, the agency staff were friendly and efficient and answered all of our queries immediately. On the day itself, the band were also very friendly and flexible to our needs, willing to adjust the timing of their sets to suit our evening's requirements. They were also able to set-up and soundcheck quickly with absolutely no fuss. This was great, as there were hundreds of other things to think about, whereas this required no thought at all!

Musically, as a fussy back-seat musician, it was really important for me to find a high-quality band whom our guests would enjoy. And the were not just a brilliant wedding band, but are an excellent band in their own right that I would unhesitatingly go to watch in concert. I have seen many professional and famous bands live and, in my mind, your band stand up alongside the best of them. Every member of the band is an accomplished musician, and together they provide an incredibly tight, funky and mouth-watering backing for the high-class voice of singer. Her voice is incredible - she has remarkable control and range, and a rich sounding tone that lies somewhere between Corrine Bailey Rae and Gabrielle Climi.

Paul March, York



WOW! What a night!

My husband and I celebrated our Pearl wedding anniversary (30 years) in late March and were determined to make sure that it was an occasion to remember

Having booked the venue, a rather exclusive hotel in Derbyshire, the search began for the band. After some considerable research we made contact with G-Sounds. It was evident from our first conversation that they understood our desire to engage a band with exceptional musical talent and to put together a combination of music fitting such an occasion. The music was fantastic and the band performed each number with such enthusiasm and professionalism that all the guests were dancing 'til the point of exhaustion! All in all the night was marvellous and made so by the splendid performance of the band on this very special occasion. Shall I wait for my 40th anniversary before engaging them again? I doubt it! My heartfelt thanks to Sam at G-Sounds and of course to the amazing band.

Mrs Elizabeth Cutts (Essex) Ringwood Hall Hotel, Chesterfield.




Not really knowing how to go about booking a live act for our wedding day, we sent an e-mail with vague details of what we were after and ten minutes later got a call from Sam saying it was all do-able, checking what our budget was and promising to get back to us as soon as possible with suggestions and a quote. This information was received the next day. Sam recommended a band and suggested we had a listen to them via the website. To put it bluntly, we were gobsmacked by the quality of the band and couldn't believe our luck that they were available. We booked there and then. Sam never left us in doubt that G-Sounds could offer what we were looking for and compared to the other entertainment agencies we contacted G-Sounds were head and shoulders above them in terms of quality - quality in customer service and quality of their acts.

The Yorkshire Strings: The Yorkshire Strings complemented our wedding day by playing a beautiful selection of classical music and helping to create a wonderful atmosphere.

The G-Sounds Jazz Quintet: The Cherie Gears Jazz Quintet played all the songs we requested to a fantastically high standard. We were married at our home and it was wonderful to have our first dance to one of our favourite songs live in our living room!

The Cherie Gears Band: A top quality band. They even learnt a couple of new songs for our wedding celebration. Everyone was full of praise for them and it had crossed our minds to kidnap them so they would have to play through until the morning!

Bespoke DJ set: The DJ was thoroughly briefed on the sort of music we wanted and played all the songs we listed and other songs which fitted the mood at the time. Very flexible and just what we wanted for filling the gaps between the live music.

Vicky and Graham Oxby, Word for Word Secretarial Services Ltd, Huddersfield



"Your jazz duo performed at Gourmet Spot Restaurant in Durham for our first of many Jazz Night Events. They were superb and the event was a massive success. They really are true professionals and amazing artists. We'll certainly be booking them again and again. I can't recommend them highly enough."

Raj Naik, Owner, The Gourmet Spot Restaurant, Durham



"The band were excellent and definitely made our wedding day. Everyone commented on how great they were. It was a pleasure to have them at our wedding and they can consider my wife and I fans now!!! We look forward to when we can see them perform next."

Anthony and Nichol McDonough, The Old Deanery, Ripon



"We have used G-Sounds for a number of years to book live music and everytime they have delivered the music and performance to exceptional standards."

Napoleons Casino, Bradford.



"Booking through G-Sounds was a hassle free way of securing what I can only describe as an awesome wedding and function band. From the first contact, Sam, the founder of the company, provided a professional and friendly service accommodating my partner and I every step of the way, from the 'first song' request to the final set list. On the night the musicians and singer showed their presence and charisma by gently coaxing the guests onto the dance floor and providing a night to remember for all. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending these guys to anyone wishing to hire a quality band at superb value."
