James & Madeline
Wedding, Trent Memorial Hall, Dorset
Such a fantastic band! All our guests would not stop asking where we found them! The sets were brilliant and really embodied the Indie spirit we were hoping for. We hardly even noticed them arrive and set up, they were so professional! Thank you so so much for making our evening even more original!
Henry & Sophie
Wedding, The Lordship Pub, London
Please pass on a massive thank you to 8-Ball. When we arrived at the pub the band were set up and ready to play. The acoustic set they played sounded so tight, that many of our guests didn't actually clock that it was being played live. They sounded excellent. After the acoustic set I got a chance to say 'hello' and 'thank you' to Sam – who is a lovely chap. In fact, the whole band are lovely. The evening music got everyone on the dance floor from the first note they played. It was an incredible evening of dancing and live music. My wife and I could not have been happier with the atmosphere they helped create as well as the set-list they played. I particularly loved our special request. It sounded fantastic! One of our guests commented that they wanted to 're-do their wedding again but with 8-Ball'. They were a hit with everyone! The band stayed and supervised a DJ set late into the night, ensuring the dance-floor was always full. A huge, huge, huge thank you again.
George Clothing (ASDA)
So many colleagues commented on how good they were and how professional they sounded. They got everyone up on their feet and having dance, I even caught those you wouldn’t expect bobbing along to the music. They brought a great vibe to the event and it was great to see everyone smiling and having a good time.
Sarah & Thomas
Wedding, Itchenor Sailing Club, Chichester
8 Ball were fantastic - really great mix of songs and they sounded amazing, just like the promo videos (had great comments from our guests too). Please can you pass on our thanks and comments to the band - we were having so much fun in the evening that we didn't really thank them properly.
Chris & Paula
Wedding, Lanwades Hall, Suffolk
Given how many changes we had to go through due to the impact of the pandemic on our original (and two other) dates, the team at Tailored Entertainment were absolutely great. Clear and timely communication throughout really helped take the stress out of organising everything. 8-Ball were fantastic on the day and we were so pleased with their version of our first dance. Having spoken to the band in one of the breaks, I know they were nervous about it but we loved it, and the rest of the night was a total blast! The guests all loved the music throughout the night, and the dance floor was filled pretty much the whole night. Thanks to each of the guys, and to everyone at Tailored Entertainment for helping us.
