SouthWest - The Super Hot Wedding Band Everybody Is Raving About

Meet the super-hot wedding band that have previous clients raving about them! The North of England's very own SouthWest are the name on everyone's lips and booking like crazy right now. For very good reason too, read on to find out why...

SouthWest wedding band with Hireaband

SouthWest are four incredibly talented young musicians who have found their calling and no mistake. Despite their relative youth, they have years of experience gained from performing at countless highly successful weddings, private functions and corporate events. They've built an enviable reputation for themselves and, as their exclusive booking agents and management team, here at Hireaband we are receiving new booking enquiries for them on a daily basis.

Why? I hear you ask. Well, it's quite simple really. There are quite literally thousands of function bands in the UK who will all claim to be the best there is and, don't get me wrong, there are some superb ones out there. We should know. However, few can offer the kind of interactive and crowd-pleasing experience that comes from booking SouthWest. Expect tight musicianship and expert knowledge of what people want to hear and when, there is an art to having dancefloors bouncing all night and SouthWest have mastered it. There's more too, this band have three genuine lead singers who combine tremendously well to offer one of the most varied setlists we've seen, something which is crucial to the success of wedding entertainment. Indeed all four members of the band sing and they've arranged their song covers to bring out their unique strengths. The vocal harmonies are awe-inspiring and truly something to behold. The meticulously arranged mash-ups have become legendary!

So, here we have no ordinary wedding band. Aside from their performance strengths SouthWest are a dream to work, their attention to detail and drive to ensure every booking is a huge success is highly admirable indeed. But don't just take our word for it, check out some examples of the amazing feedback we've received from some very happy recent clients:

 

The band were fantastic and made the evening so fun!! Thank you to them and to Lee at Hireaband who made the booking experience so easy!
Danielle & David Bates, Hazlewood Castle, Wedding

 

We booked SouthWest via Hireaband or our works summer party, which we do every year. This year was the most important one as it was our 10th birthday too, so the pressure was on to find a band who played their own instruments and had a set list that spanned our whole company taste. SouthWest arrived promptly, set up quickly and were ready to play when needed. They are amazing singers and musicians, verified by the fact that the dance floor was full for every song! They kept the vibe/party feel going throughout the whole night, even when they weren't on stage they were outside chatting with us. What a bunch of lovely guys. I had so many compliments for them throughout the night, everyone loved their songs, the mix ups and the medleys. Not your average run of the mill band, but a totally dedicated, professional and perfect performance. I would recommend them to anyone for any occasion. We will definitely be repeat customers!' 

'The band were very good, and I say this being stone cold sober' 

'I thought they were excellent Kel, great musicians, very tight playing together, and fun to watch – didn’t take themselves too seriously!' 

'Bloody brilliant! Great song choices and getting Kate Bowyer on stage at the end was epic!' 

'LOVED their remixes of lines from several different songs to one beat! Was very good :)' 

'They were amazing!' 

We had a great day and everyone loved the evening, topping off a good party with a class act. Henry was lovely, as were the other guys. 100% recommendations from me!

We would like to thank Hireaband for their excellent service from start to finish. You made the process of selecting the band and organising everything incredibly simple, which was great. The band, Southwest, were incredible! Our first dance was brilliant and the rest of the performance was top quality. The dance floor was never empty and everyone commented on how awesome they were. I would 100% recommend both Southwest and Hireaband to anyone planning their wedding. Thanks for everything. 
Luke & Vaithehy, Wedding, Sefton Park Palm Hose - Liverpool

 

I thought the band were excellent. The three guys who sang - could all sing! Fabulous. There was a great range of songs which served the audience well. And all four guys were really personable. Feedback the next day from people was that they had really enjoyed it - absolutely no complaints whatsoever. I would definitely recommend them.

An excellent experience, both with the Hireaband service and the Southwest performance.  Southwest were exactly as described, with music genre and attitude.  Very professional.  For our wedding it was important to create a real party atmosphere for the evening as we had gone for no children and a marquee at the brides family home.  If we could have afforded Mumford and Sons then we would have gone for that but it is no joke that Southwest were every bit as good.  In fact, the personalised slowed down rendition of 'I will wait' that they learnt for the first dance we thought was better than the original! The advice of an early setup was just what we needed and work perfect on the day and it was a great idea of Lee to go for an afternoon session to make the most of the increased early setup, for what we thought was a fair additional cost, discounted slightly for going with an all-day option. Overall a great service.
Peter & Philippa, Wedding, Selby

 

This is clearly a band you can book for your wedding or other special event with 100% confidence. But please take our advice and do it quickly to avoid disappointment, as I mentioned at the outset SouthWest are in extremely high demand right now! Trust me, you'll be glad you did.

And some other people here had some input too! I sent an email round the office this morning asking what people thought and I got these responses :-)
