?Thanks for making our evening reception a truly memorable occasion. You were all fantastic and created a truly celebratory atmosphere. There were even members of the family dancing that I had never seen dance before! A great repertoire, professional, flexible, and fantastic musicians, we couldn?t have asked for any more.??

?We hired The Standards for our wedding and could not have been happier. Both the music and the vocals were perfect and appealed to all generations. Their repertoire is extremely varied and can be tailored to suit all needs. They kindly agreed to learn a new song for our first dance and performed it with the same class and professionalism as the rest of their sets.?NICHOLAS & SARAH

The Standards

?We would like to sincerely thank you for your outstanding performances on the evening of our wedding day. The band went down a storm! We were particularly impressed with your choices of music, which appealed to all our guests and encouraged many of them to hit the dance floor. We?ll certainly recommend you to our friends.?MR & MRS AYRES

?The Standards performed at our wedding. Unfortunately due to the liquid consuming festivities, we didn?t get a chance to say a very big thank you for their efforts on the night. Everyone commented on how great it was to have such a good live group perform. One of the people at the wedding singing their praises was my grandad. He has sadly passed away since, but he was full of praise for The Standards. Could you please pass on my sincere thanks to the whole group. We had a great day and they were an integral part of it. We will have no hesitation in recommending them to our friends in the future. Thanks again for making one of the most important days of our lives, that little bit more special.?BARNEY & EMMA

The Standards

The Standards

?The Standards played at Earls Court 2 to over 1000 shareholders as they arrived for the M&S Annual General Meeting. They were highly professional both before the event and on the day ? we got a large number of great comments from shareholders, who enjoyed being greeted with such great music and listening to it as they enjoyed their lunch ahead of the meeting. They were a perfect addition to a very important day for us. This is the second time The Standards

The Standards

?I wanted to say to you all, on behalf of Anna and I, a MASSIVE thank you for doing such an amazing job of playing at our wedding. Honestly, we were blown away by how well you guys did. I mean we knew you?d be good, but just the way you seemed to read the occasion and play the right stuff all night was great. The vibe was perfect and you could just tell everyone was loving it (which many people have confirmed since the event).?OWEN & ANNA

The Standards

?We would like to thank you very much for the music which you provided us for our family birthday party. Many of our friends commented especially about the music and how much they enjoyed it. We felt that the background playing during the meal was just right ? adding to the party atmosphere but at the same time allowing conversation to continue normally. We also enjoyed the group in the second part of the evening, when you played a great selection of pieces for dancing. We are very grateful for the wonderful contribution which you made to our birthday celebrations.?SUE, DAVID, HANNAH & NAOMI
