" Just wanted to ask you to pass on a massive thank you to Joe and the rest of the band for doing our wedding on Friday. The live lounge set at the start really created a lovely atmosphere when we arrived at the venue and throughout the reception drinks and the evening, well, what can we say, it was an absolutely brilliant night. Having the band play our first dance made it feel extra special and everyone commented what a great band they were for the whole evening. The fact that I was dancing (admittedly probably quite badly) proves how good they were as I never dance anywhere, ever! I hope the band enjoyed playing for us nearly as much as we enjoyed having them there. "

" Gigz Management is an amazing service that allowed us to have complete piece of mind when hiring a band we knew nothing about. The site allowed us to to listen to the band before we make a decision about who we asked to play at our wedding, which also helped us pick the genre for the evening. The Gigz Management website made it really easy to make requests and update details about the wedding, and the staff really bent over backwards to answer any questions we had. Shine really were incredible, and our guests are still raving about them and how much they enjoyed their music. They really got the party going, the dance floor wasn't empty from when they started until closing time. The band were very professional, and their music selection was spot on. Thank you so much to the band, and Gigz Management for helping make our wedding night so memorable, I'll continue to pass both names on to anyone who might need a band! "

" All through the day people kept coming up to me and telling me how good the band were.You were immense and made our day go off with a bang. We both absolutely loved the set and were overwhelmed with just how good you played/ sung. It takes some skill to get people dancing at 2 in the afternoon on the hottest day of the year! Thanks again and consider the recommendation a 10 out of 10 score! "
