The Salutations

We spent ages looking for a band versatile enough to play our favourite soul and Motown tunes on our big day. From Al Green to Luther Vandross to the Jackson 5, these guys absolutely nailed it!

We couldn't have been more thrilled with the Salutations. Everyone kept coming up to us saying it was the best wedding band they'd ever heard. We couldn't agree more!

Thank you to the band - our guests never left the dance floor and my new wife couldn't have been more thrilled!

My feet are killing me today from all the dancing!"Christine Stilgoe - Principle at Healing Hands therapy"They need to get the *u*k off this Island, waaay too good for this place!"Mark King - Level 42 at Brading haven Yacht club"I have never seen anyone sing Sting better than the man himself!"John Giddings - Solo, Isle of Wight festival"Great stuff."Rob Da Bank - Radio 1 Bestival - Barnjam event
