What our clients say about us...
"Start The Party are fantastic. They had everyone dancing throughout the night. Charlotte and the team were absolutely fabulous playing all the songs we wanted and the vocals and music was so professional and note perfect. We will definitely be booking them again. I thought I would be dragging people on the dance floor. Oh no, Start The Party did that themselves with their brilliant singing and music. If you are looking for a band to get everyone dancing, to keep your party alive and to have all ages satisfied - look no further, book Start The Party, you will not be disappointed."
Terry Pegg , Masonic Ball, The Dorchester Suite, Marriott Bournemouth Highcliff, Dorset 25th March 2023
“Really lovely band - these guys played at my wedding which although was a long time coming, this band made every minute of it sensational! They learnt our first dance and it was such a lovely version of it! I’d love to hear them perform it again. Every one of our guests loved them and even the venue staff mentioned how great they were. The DJ set which came with the band ensured that everyone at the venue was dancing all night. I have since recommended the band to fellow friends and family planning a wedding. We loved every minute of our day and thank Start The Party for making it such a fantastic occasion!!”

"Hi all - Just to say a big thank you for playing at Jess and Tom’s wedding. You really got everyone up and dancing. After the last 16 months I think everyone was ready for a party!
Thank you for accommodating the first dance request allowing us to play Jess’s cousin’s cover version of their chosen song. It made it very special for them. It finished of a very memorable day for us all. Thanks again"

Start The Party bringing the new year in. Their set list was
perfect for getting everyone up on the dance floor, and
keeping them there. I have had countless comments

they want to book them for their own private events.
Once again many thanks for a really top performance."

Natalie Warburton, Wedding Party, Private Marquee, Sheldon, Derbyshire, 18th August 2018
"I hired Start the Party for my son’s 21st and husband’s surprise 50th, I have been to lots of events over the years weddings, birthdays, Christmas parties and have seen all types of bands but these guys are one of the best bands I have ever seen! I was a bit worried about the fact that there was a wide range of ages there from small children to great grandmas and wondered if they could realistically keep everyone entertained but I needn’t have worried - they performed some fantastic songs and covered all tastes and age ranges! The DJ set that they played in between sets was brilliant, they kept everyone on the dance floor all night! They did exactly what they say on the tin “START THE PARTY!!” Hire them now for your next event you won’t regret it!!"

We had a great night, every song they played kept the dance floor full and rocking right to the very end of the night."

The range of songs you played was great - a real mix of old and new songs so there was something for everyone to enjoy and hit the dance floor to! The fact that I didn't leave the dance floor all night (literally!) was a testament to you guys. Charlotte's voice is incredible which was partly why we chose the band.
