" I just wanted to thank you and your amazing band for such a fantastic performance on Saturday. People were absolutely blown away by you and I have to admit I'm a bit annoyed I couldn't just relax and enjoy all the songs we'd chosen - I kept hearing them and thinking 'I love that one!' then someone would interrupt me! But our guests had a fantastic time dancing away to your music and people have said to me that they'll never have a party without a band again. 

I was particularly struck by how perfect the jazz was when I walked in, it really was exactly what I wanted and set the tone so beautifully.

If we ever need a band again I will definitely be in touch! "

" Vivid added a great deal to our wedding. They were easy to deal with, taking away any hassle or stress we felt in the lead up to the big day, they had a good variety of songs from which we were able to choose exactly what we wanted. They did not need any hand holding at all on the day which allowed us to enjoy our reception without having to worry about them. They are highly professional. Their performance was excellent, as mentioned by a number of the guests. They brought energy and a sense of fun to the whole thing. The highest praise I can give them is that the dance floor was packed throughout, which is exactly what we had wanted. I would highly recommend them."

"Vivid were a fantastic choice. From the first contact they were professional and keen to understand what I wanted. They have a great playlist to choose from to make sure all tastes are catered for. Feedback from those at the party has been unanimous... what a fantastic band! from the first to the last song we are all dancing. Would definitely use them again!"

Just a quick note to say thank you to you and your wonderful band.
We had the most amazing day and you guys absolutely made it for us.
The whole process was smooth and hassle free from start to finish.  Nothing was too much trouble.
You knocked our socks off at the wedding with the acoustic set during the reception drinks and then the 5-piece band in the evening.
EVERYONE has commented on how awesome you guys were … and some thought we had 2 different bands for the day and night!
I need to apologise for all the kisses as well!  I think I scared your poor drummer! Haha
We have recommended you to all our friends and we hope you get some decent bookings from it.
We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Vivid were brilliant - we received so many complimentary comments about your performance, all the guests thoroughly enjoyed your music, such a talented group of people.  Thank your singer again (sorry, age makes me forget names) who made my granddaughter's day/evening by coming on to the dance floor and dancing with her.  She might not have looked impressed but she was!  Everything was just perfect and thank you for playing 'Sunshine of my Life' when you did, just the right time during the party. My mum died the Monday before the 12th so you all strongly contributed towards me being in blissful bubble for the evening.  So, thank you again, you were all superb.

Paul and band Just a quick email to say a massive thanks to you and the band for an outstanding performance at our wedding.  You really did a fantastic job, not only with the afternoon acoustic set but the set up in the evening was perfect. A lot of our guests stated that they had never seen as many people dancing or such a great wedding band. At one point in the final hour, you had every single person at the venue dancing, something that we never thought would happen. You’re planning and response to emails before the wedding was top notch. You made planning the wedding as stress free as possible.  Please feel free to use this email on your website (edit as you wish) if you have anyone who is planning on booking you, please don’t hesitate to give them my email address and I will give them my top review. Any videos or photos I have, can be sent on as they come through should you wish. Thanks again

"I am well overdue thanking you and the rest of the band for the amazing performance you gave at our wedding (8th August). Having watched clips on YouTube, we knew you'd be great, but you exceeded all our expectations and we were absolutely thrilled! Thank you so much - the evening entertainment was an important part of the day for us, and you were so professional and helpful in the run up, then fantastic on the night itself. We have had lots of comments from guests about how good you were, and you made sure we had a brilliant time. I know there were some tracks you didn't get to play due to the groundsman's strict 11pm curfew and I'm sure that was frustrating for you, but we were delighted with how everything went. I have already recommended you to another friend who is getting married next year."

"Absolutely amazing band - they made the night! Fantastic communication before the event and were flexible with our requests. All guest commented on how amazing they were from the singer to the live Sax who came onto the dance floor! I would 100% recommend them and have them back to do any future events 10/10!! Thank you so much cannot let you know how you help achieve a perfect wedding!"

"They were there early, worked furiously for 1.5 hours solid and were set up on time. Their organisation from start to finish was amazing, really easy to speak to, and completely professional. So friendly. Paul, made me confident that everything would be as I hoped it would. So professional. On the night the guys looked the part - everyone commented on that.

 Paul was always available by phone and email. I never had to wait more than a day or two for a reply to an email (and we sent quite a few!). We got quite involved in song selection, and had some precise requirements for timing and even they type of music we wanted between sets, and in the DJ set at the end. Paul just catered to everything we asked for, and just helped us understand how the night would go. Paul, is definitely someone I could work with again. Open to any suggestion, but used his vast experience to ensure Jane & I didn't make unrealistic requests.

 Everyone came up to me asking how we managed to get such an amazing band. Amazing doesn't even come close to describing how good they were. Way beyond my expectations.

Jane and I were so proud of the entertainment we put on for our guests. Amy's vocals were absolutely out of this world. The rest of the guys are so talented, I can't believe now that we could afford them! They were so amazing and made the night for everyone there.

They performed (at our request) "Love is an open door" from Frozen. They performed it with so much enthusiasm, it was a really special moment for us. We really want to thank them for that.

Throughout the whole night, they all really looked like they were enjoying themselves. This was one of the reasons we wanted to book VIVID, as we didn't want a band who looked like they took things too seriously. They were having fun, and that meant a lot to us.

In the run up to the night, Paul always referred to the night as a "show". I thought it an odd term to use, but I get it now. They really did put on a show, a world class show. This wasn't just a few guys singing a few songs. This was rehearsed, organised, and superbly planned out showmanship

 The 7 piece band just sounded incredible. Not too loud, not too quiet. Just right for people on the dance floor, but also great for those at the back of the room just chatting.

I'd love to re-book, and I would recommend them to anyone. I wouldn't be at all surprised if VIVID had enquiries on the back of that event, our guests had an amazing night, Jane & I had the night of our lives. I'd be happy to speak to anyone considering this band"

Duncan & Jane Hamilton 20/06/15

"They were absolutely fantastic.  The guests really loved the music and the dance floor was always full to capacity.
I was especially impressed that they specifically practised a song that is my disabled daughter’s favourite and not normally in their repertoire and it made her so happy. They were worth every penny – they really made the party go with a swing."

"Britain's got talent! That was one of many positive comments we received about VIVID after our wedding on 6 June 2015. It was one hell of a party with this band. They brought an unexpected level of professionalism and quality. Paul the band manager was incredibly accomodating to all of our needs. The band was fantastic! We created a festival and they came to perform as our headliner. Beautifull lead singer Amy stole the show with her looks and amazing voice. Many guests stayed and watched as she helped her collegues disconnect cables after their performance. I have to thank the whole band for allowing us (bride and groom) and guests (one of which grabbed the mic at one stage) go completely crazy during the party. Their performance of 'waiting all night' by Rudimental is fast becomming the theme song of our wedding! I could keep going on for a while, but I think you got the gist: 5 out of 5 for sure."

"Brilliant performance and lots of great comments made by guests. Very polite and looked the part! Would definitely use them again, and we have been asked by many guests to use them again next year at the next conference. They had people on their feet within less than a minute of playing! Fantastic and what a voice!!!!"

"The band on Saturday were excellent. They were polite and well mannered when they arrived. Their set up was seamless and their custom made 70's dj set was great. The music itself was exactly what we wanted, lively expertly executed and fun. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."

"An excellent performance with a good mix of music appropriate to a varied age group at the event. All positive feedback from visitors... who would be vocal if they didn't like it!
Their price including the disco was competitive, especially when we heard the quality of the music. I was kept up to date prior to the event and they were very friendly. I would definitely recommend them to a friend."

"I have put on quite a few events of this kind with different acts and may I say that you demonstrated exemplary standards of management and performance when working together on this occasion.
This consistency and reliability has made my job of putting on the show a whole lot easier. As well as the fantastic show , you were all highly presentable and courteous and you were able to accommodate my requests efficiently.
We shall keep in touch.
