" We wanted to write and say a huge thank you to The Maybugs who were absolutely brilliant at our wedding. They were a huge hit and it has been mentioned by all how much they added to the day, we couldn’t have hoped for a better live band, they got the whole crowd dancing. They realised that the timings of the day were a bit behind, so they offered (without even having to be asked) to wait before beginning their second set, which helped make our day run so easily….would recommend them to anyone looking for a live band. The Gigz Management were very easy to deal with, immediately available and responsive with all of our queries. "

" The MayBugs were incredible at our wedding. We wanted a proper session band - not a 'covers' act and we knew from the start that we could trust them to choose a playlist and rock it. Dave was brilliant at keeping us in the loop with everything in the run up to the wedding. On the day, the guys were on time, really relaxed and lots of fun. The dance floor was full from start to finish, and I am pretty sure I am the only bride to have rocked out to Rage Against the Machine in a gorilla mask with her dress tucked into a pair of gold sparkly knickers.

" The Maybugs went down a storm at our wedding! They were really helpful in the lead up to the wedding and we felt happy to trust them to choose a suitable playlist. They filled the dance floor and got everyone really involved. "

" Just wanted to pass on our thanks to The Maybugs for a brilliant night, and for the seamless planning. We had a lot to organise in advance, so we really appreciated getting really quick email replies from Gigz Management whenever we had a question or a request. You guys usually replied within an hour, which kept us reassured that you were on top of things. Greg from the band gave me a call in the week before the event. He gave us all of the information we needed and already knew the exact plans that we had discussed with Gigz. The night itself was pretty much perfect. Greg and the guys were on top form and really approachable. The dancefloor was packed whenever they were on stage, and their set list was exactly what we wanted - no cheesy 'wedding disco' songs, but still covering all bases from The Beatles to Daft Punk. They even saved us from a potential nightmare when they blew the venue's power in the first 30 seconds of their first set, but then fixed it in about a minute before anyone noticed. Couldn't recommend you guys more. "

" Never before have we seen a band as good as these guys!!! The quality of the music was second to none with audience participation topping off the night. We booked a band for our wedding expecting music and they provided so much more. If we ever have another party they are going to be my first port of call. Even our guests wanted their contact details on the night. "

" We were extremely impressed with The Maybugs� as were all our guests. They pitched the set just right for the crowd and the dancefloor was always packed. They had such a vibrancy and energy that you couldn�t help but have a good time. The wedding ran over a little (as they often do) but there was a not a word of complaint from the band � they just got on with it. Fantastic. Hope this helps. "

" I just wanted to say that the booking process was very straightforward and all your responses were very quick & everyone was very helpful. We booked the band on a recommendation and we have to say they exceeded our expectations! All our guests got on the dance floor when the band came on to play & so many of them commented on what a great band they were. Thank you so much for helping to create our perfect day! We would definitely recommend The Maybugs! "

" We just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our evening celebration a success. You absolutely made the evening! We just need to come up with some more excuses to book you for future events! You were brilliant! Thank you for learning our first dance, it made it all the more special. We really can't put into words how grateful we are. You were worth every penny! PS. I danced so much that I couldn't feel my feet for about four days! My dress only had one tear in it which I think was quite impressive considering how much time I spent on the dance floor! "

" We hired the boys for a corporate event in September 2011 and couldn't have been more happy with the band. Not only did they get everyone up dancing, they were incredibly helpful and a joy to work with. I would definitely use them again and fully recommend the guys to anyone! Great band, thanks! "

" The Maybugs were great!! The dance floor was full throughout all their sets and the feedback we had from the party guests was fantastic. From Stevie Wonder to The Strokes, there was something for everyone. Good musicians, great singing voices and bags of energy! The band were really nice guys as well, from the calls beforehand to check what we wanted to the efficient way they set up and packed away. We are looking for an excuse to book them again. Thanks for helping to make my husband's 40th a party to remember! "

" The Maybugs were amazing and topped off what was already an amazing day. The whole room was dancing and the songs were fantastic! We would recommend these guys to anyone who wants a band that will play great songs and are definitely not your typical wedding singers, there was nothing cheesy about them! Thank you so much, we couldn't have asked for a better day and all the lads in the band were so nice and easy to chat to. Hope you guys enjoyed the evening and the bacon butties and fish and chips!!
