" Darren and I recently got married and whilst looking for a band we came across Gigz Management and discovered the band Get Down. We knew then that they were the type of band we were looking for, young, fresh, upbeat and most of all entertaining. Throughout the process, I found the agency always willling to help with any queries, which put me at ease, as I live abroad. On the day the band didn't disappoint, they were enthusiatic and full of energy and created a true party atmosphere. Their soul funk music choices appealed to all age groups and got everyone involved in the party spirit. They were truly amazing live and I would have no hesitation in recommending them as they are professional, lively and talented. Thanks for an amazing evening! "

" just to let you know that Get Down were extremely professional and popular on Saturday. I thought all five of them were great and please forward on my thanks. They were practically mobbed for an encore and it was rare to see so many people on the dance floor. Would love to re-hire in future. On the night we raised over £15,000 which is amazing given what a small charity we are.Thanks also to you personally for such a stress-free and well organised booking. "

" The support we received from Gigz in the run up to our Wedding and post event was second to none. The online information form was simple to complete and any queries were answered quickly and efficiently. Our Band for the night 'Get Down' were fab! They had everyone on the dancefloor from their first song and interacted well with the crowd. We had lots of complements in the weeks after the Wedding on our choice of band. Thank you Gigz for making it such a memorable evening! "

They were great to work with as well – please pass on my thanks for really contributing to a great evening and to Yiannis for staying around until the end with the PA.

" I hired the Get Down after going to see them in a pub just outside of London. Only needed to listen to one song and knew that they would be perfect. Within minutes of being on stage they had everyone up dancing. Cannot speak highly enough of them. Will use them again in the future for sure and people from the event were raving about them. Very cool and highly talented band "

" I just wanted to send you a message to thank you and the rest of the band on an absolutely amazing performance at our wedding. Every person we have spoken to has commented on how brilliant you all were. You really did make our wedding complete and me and Sarah would like to thank you. The first dance rendition of Rule The World was absolutely first class. Thanks for the amazing memories you have given us. If you ever need someone to use as a reference then feel free to give my details out and if we ever need any music again, you will be the only band we think of. I would also expect to see a group as good as you at the top one day! Then I can say "they played at my wedding

" Just to say thanks so much for playing at our wedding you were totally fantastic! All of our guests thought you were great - every person at the wedding from 19 - 90 years old was up and dancing, you really catered for everyone! Thanks for being so flexible with the set/song lists and also for staying and playing late on the night - the guest could not get enough of you and lots of people have phoned us since to say how excellent the band was. If we ever have another big event you will definitely be our first choice! Thanks, you really made our wedding a day to remember and we would recommend you to anyone!
