Brando

Brando were unbelievable. Everyone at the wedding was bowled over by how good they were. At one point I think we had all 100 guests on the dance floor (even 93 year old grannie) the boogying night away! We gave everyone song request sheets and the band were able to play all of them. Most of them sounding better/ cooler than the original! Would highly recommend them as they really made our wedding so special.

Brando

Another amazing gig from the epic Brando, this time for our wedding. Thank you so much, Alex, Phil, Irving and all the band. Family and friends LOVED partying the night away to your brilliant sets. Looking forward to seeing you live in 2022!

Brando

The dance floor was never empty which says it all. Their repertoire seems to be limitless, and the performance was fantastic.

Brando

Pre party we may have built the band up and set the bar pretty high based on many Cowes Week performances. Even then Brando exceeded expectations. Definitely the best Party Band on the planet!

The bands repertoire, energy and ability to drive a party is incredible. Every guest was dancing and thought Brando were completely awesome.

We cannot thank you enough.
Paul and Olly

Brando

What a fabulous band and a great group of guys! Can't rate Brando highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble and they were instrumental (sorry for the pun!) in getting the whole occasion going with a swing!

Brando

Toby and I just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for such a brilliant night on September 11th. The band were amazing. My father-in-law had seen you at Cowes week and recommended you.

We were blown away with how good the band were. Everyone has commented on how brilliant you were and how much fun it was to dance all night on the dance floor.
You even managed to get my Dad dancing up the marquee pole. Many of our favourite memories from the evening are on the dance floor and we have you to thank for that.

It was so much fun.

Brando

What a night.
The band were the most important part of our wedding day celebrations and Brando were BRILLIANT!

The dance floor was full all night! My dad was literally swinging from the central pole of the marquee in the middle of the dance floor. People had the best time and we have had so many comment about how great the band were.

Taking peoples requests in a fun and casual format and then running songs back to back, one brilliant song to the next.

We want to do it all again - Thank you so much
Katie and Toby Wood

Brando

We booked Brando for our wedding and they were fantastic! Everyone had a brilliant evening and all our guests commented on how great they were. Irving was a pleasure to deal with and very flexible during various dates changes due to Covid. If you are looking for a band for a wedding or party then these are the guys to book!

Brando

Hi Irving & the rest of the band (!),

I hope you are well. It was so lovely to work with you over the weekend for Olivia & Henry's wedding.

Their day was wonderful and everyone seemed to be having the best time.

You guys were just unbelievable and I rarely see so many people on the dancefloor for so much of a wedding!

I will definitely be in touch for my couples' weddings and hope to work with you soon.

Have a lovely week and speak soon,

Brando

This is the second time that Brando have performed for us at a private party. They exceeded expectations. Brando provided an outstanding evening of music with lots of friendly banter and chat along the way. We are already trying to work out a reason to have another party with Brando providing the tunes!

Brando

Brando were amazing, I’ve had so many compliments about them at our wedding. We couldn’t have asked for more, from the communication before the event, to the performance itself they were truly incredible.
I’m already trying to work out the next event we can get them to play at!

Brando

Thanks, Hireaband and Brando for the most awesome night! Your sets were fantastic and you had everyone on the dance floor before too long. We especially loved the requests - if you have an event with Brando definitely get some post-its so your guests can write requests. These guys know basically every song ever written! We can confirm, Brando are *definitely* the best party band ever! :-)

Brando

Brando really made our wedding, they were flexible with the timings which changed on the day, were very professional, and set up in a very unobtrusive way.

The music itself was spectacular, the dance floor was packed throughout the whole night, they read the crowd perfectly and kept the party going. Couldn’t have asked for a better band, amazing that they can take requests beforehand and on the night and play them.

Three of the band also arrived early to provide acoustic music for the drinks reception and were playing when we arrived, which set the tone nicely for this part of the day.

They also provided an excellent microphone PA system with technical support for the speeches, and even put on a bit of background music for us while we were eating our meal.

Hire a band and Irving were a pleasure to correspond with beforehand, and we managed to organise everything despite date changes and forever changing covid restrictions

Brando

Brando we’re supposed to play as a full band but we had to reduce numbers. We had Phil and Wayne play and they were awesome. They read the crowd perfectly and everyone was dancing from start to finish. Thank you so much!

Brando

We have often hired this band in London and the Isle of Wight and Zermatt, even flying them out to Barbados for a wedding, because they are so talented and so good. They know how to adapt to a crowd and play what works and how to keep the party going without stopping!

Brando

We love you guys!
Came across you in Cowes and been seeking you out at sailing events ever since as we know you always deliver a great atmosphere.
What more do you need for a wedding band? It was a no-brainer!
We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests. Once the dancing started it never stopped..... They all want to re-do the night. The venue staff said you were the best band they’d seen.
Thank you so much for helping make our day so special.
See you soon in Cowes!!
Sarah & Neil

Brando

The band were absolutely brilliant. They very kindly learned a new song for us to play at our wedding, and were amazing at being able to play song requests that people called out to them. Everyone had the best time dancing the night away!

Brando

Everybody who attended the wedding thought the band was fantastic. We thought the choice of music played was ideal for everybody. We will definitely recommend Brando to others and hope to book you again in the future. Thankyou.

Brando

The BRANDO boys are a huge favourite here at Cowdray. Talented, energetic and amazing fun! We LOVE BRANDO!

Brando

Superb band!!! They really know how to keep the crowd going and give an amazing, enthusiastic performance. Our only regret of our whole day is that we didn't start earlier so we could enjoy their performance for longer

Brando

Hi guys,

Just a quick email to say thank you for Saturday night,

It was exactly what we wanted and was great to get everyone dancing all night,

Worryingly people are talking more about the band than the vows!

Cheers and see you in the Duke!

Olly and Sam

Brando

Just to say we had a massive night on Saturday, the party was a great success and the Brando boys were fantastic, they truly made the night. We have been receiving lots of amazing messages from all our friends and the overriding theme of all of them was; how good was the band!!!

Brando

You guys MADE our wedding. Seriously amazing and people are still talking about how fabulous you were now!! Thank you so much to Irving and the gang for being so wonderful, prefessional and damn-right SUCH FUN thank you thank you thank you xxx

Brando

Brando were absolutely incredible at our wedding. They’re really fun (and definitely don’t take themselves too seriously) and they’re beyond talented! They managed to play a request that they’d never played before, which says it all.
We and our guests were on the dance floor the whole time and I think they could’ve kept us there for hours longer if we had the time!
Everyone’s been talking about them since the wedding and they truly took our amazing day to another level. We’re so glad we chose them! Thank you Brando.

Brando

Brando were absolutely brilliant at our wedding, keeping everyone on the dance floor by taking requests. They were very easy going and friendly and it was very easy to make the booking. All our guests commented on how good Brando were as a band and that they played a good range of songs. Thank you to you all for making our Wedding amazing!

Brando

Brando were absolutely fantastic - everyone was blown away by them and we wish them all the best for the future - Belinda and Martin

Brando

thank you so much for a such an wonderful evening. every single guest messaged me the next day saying you are the best band they have ever seen. we are so pleased that everyone enjoyed the brando experience that we know and love.

we will definitely be booking you again....3 years to save up for my 40th!!! although as my birthday is january and we all found it chilly at the weekend i may have to push it into the summer and do a 40.5 birthday.

thanks so much again and hope to see you all again soon.

Brando

Just unbelievably excellent!
We have seen Brando a number of times at the Duke of York during Cowes Week, and we always have a brilliant time when they’re on. It was an easy choice to book them for our wedding this September, and they did not disappoint!
From the first dance to the final number, the dancefloor was full, and the requests kept coming! They were the perfect way to finish off an amazing day, and we could not recommend them highly enough! All the way through to the specifically requested zombie/love the way you lie/lose yourself mashup at the end, everyone had the best time.
Book this band if you want a party.

Brando

Great band and very accommodating with our stage invaders!
Music in between the band playing could have been better. Music tempo started a bit slow but when the requests starting coming everyone was on the dance floor.

Brando

Brando are the best party band there is - they are 100% guaranteed to interact with guests and ensure that the dance floor stays full all evening. There is no set play list - just endless and seamless transitions across many genres to keep the party rocking. Their version of tracks sounds better than the original thanks to a funky brass section, brilliant bass and great vocal range. We have lost count of the number of events we have been to with Brando and each has been unique and fun filled. We can't recommend them enough.

Brando

Everyone loved Brando, so many happy guests and people asking me where I had found them. We had the best night and the band were superb. Would highly recommend for any age group, they were brilliant at anticipating what was going to work and interacting with the guests on the dance floor. Cannot recommend highly enough. We are going to a party they are playing at next weekend and we cant wait to hear them. Thank you so much we will definitely ask you to play for us again. Roll on the next party!!

Brando

The band were fantastic. The feedback from guests has been amazing. They played non-stop from 7.15pm - 10pm. Incredible energy and especially loved by Binky from Made in Chelsea! ;)

Brando

We rate this band very highly and have heard them serveral times at Cowes week. Talented and really great at playing to the mood of the crowd. Excellent at our recent private event with loads of compliments from our guests.

Couldn’t have been better

Brando

We have been fans of the band for many years and we sooooooooooo excited when we booked them for our wedding.
As ever they did not disappoint, on point from the pre wedding planning to the last song.
We had several performers at the wedding and they all complemented on how amazing the band were, as did the rest of the guests and venue staff.
The band even accommodated our friends performing our first dance and having to plug into their equipment with was fantastic of them.
I have been recommending your guys for years and will continue to do so. Just need to find my next excuse to book them.

Thank you again for making our night so epic.

Brando

Brando were absolutely fantastic. We saw them at IOW fest before we were even engaged and knew we had to have them at our wedding when the time came! All our guests were on the dance floor and everyone said how great they were. Thank you for doing our first dance request and playing so many great hits for both the youngens and the oldies!! Would highly recommend, thanks so much!!!!

Brando

Communication and support from our assigned Hireband staff member (Irving) was superb.
Brando were fantastic, everyone thought they were a hit. I had countless people ask who they were and where I found them. Truthfully I did a lot of research and considered 30-40 options before making my decision but Brando's example performances stood out. We were both truly overjoyed with how their performance went. Great guys!

Brando

The process of booking the band was a joy from start to finish. Irving dealt with all the administration efficiently and made everything easy for us. The band (Brando) were absolutely outstanding. Their performance was superb and they engaged the audience too. Everybody at the party commented that they were the best band they had seen and the dance floor was packed from start to finish of their set. Brando are genuinely amazing!

Brando

Hi Irving, just wanted to thank you very much indeed for your help in arranging the band for the weekend. They were incredible as always and absolutely stole the show. Everyone loved them!

Please pass on my thanks again to the boys, and thank you again for making the process so easy.

Hope you have a great summer and look forward to seeing the band again soon!

Brando

Guys,

What can I say!?! You and the rest of the guys were absolutely sensational last night! Wowzers!! All our guests were absolutely raving about you all - you really got the party going and I am so happy that you were part of our day.

Thank you so, so much for a truly memorable evening.

Sincerely hope to see you in Verbier

Brando

The band was absolutely phenomenal and definitely the highlight of the whole day. All the guests said how great you were. You totally filled the room and everyone was up dancing until the end, which was exactly what we wanted. Even my brother was on the dance floor, which I think was the first time he has ever danced in his life. You totally delivered above and beyond what was expected and we can't wait to see you play again soon.

Brando

Hi Irving,

Peter and Alice here!

The dust has finally settled from our wedding at Elmore Court on Saturday.

We just wanted to extend our heart-felt thanks to you and the band; you were incredible! Everyone was so impressed with you and absolutely loved the music and banter. We just didn't want you to stop!

We couldn't have wished for better entertainment; you without doubt, were one of the highlights of the day.

Please pass on our thanks to the other band members! Oh and apologies for the drunk lady who kept getting on stage with you all! You guys dealt with her extremely well!

Hope to see you again sometime! It would be our pleasure!

Brando

Anyway the band were really great and the making of the evening. They were efficient, punctual, courteous and helpful. They played through and all there were greatly impressed, so I hope they will get some more bookings in Yorkshire. Great music and very responsive to what the dancers wanted.

Brando

We was recommended this band by a friend who had seen them perform.
Blown away, they are an amazing band and so glad we chose them. All of our guests have commented on how brilliant they were.
Professional, fun and simply great.
Thank you so much.

Brando

Hi Irving

Hope you are good. I just wanted to thank you and your amazing band.
Having been to a few weddings with a live band i have never experienced one as good as Brando. They were all amazing and all of our guests have commented on how brilliant they were.

Please thank them all for me and apologise for us trying to play their instruments!!!
Thank you to for all of your help, not living on the island it has been hard trying to organize everything but you made hiring a band a lot easier than i thought.

Many thanks again and i wish you and your band an amazing future.

Kind Regards

Emma

Brando

Brando we're absolutely PHENOMENAL! From the first dance until the last they were fun, engaging, and they read the crowd perfectly. The music was incredible and the vibe was just brilliant. We had so many amazing comments about the band, and we are so glad that we chose to have Brando at our wedding - they were a real highlight of the day. We recommend them really highly.

Brando

Brando are the ultimate wedding band - so much fun and really get the party started. Totally read the mood of the room and play exactly what your guests want to hear. Can't recommend them highly enough!

Brando

We just wanted to send a somewhat belated but massive THANK YOU for playing at our wedding on the 22nd of October. We could not have asked for a better band and everyone has commented on how much time they spent on the dancefloor! 'Let Me Entertain You' was one of our personal highlights of the day, everyone was absolutely loving it!

We hope you'll remember us in the future because we will be those awkward people on the side of the stage waving 'you played at our wedding'!!!

I've attached a copy of our 'survivors photo' that we took at the end of night - thanks for joining in!

Brando

We hired Brando to perform at a gala dinner to celebrate our business' 10th anniversary and I can thoroughly recommend them as a band.

Without exception the feedback from our 400+ guests was what a fantastic band they were. From the first song to the last the dance floor was packed and they left the stage with our guests wanting more!

A genuine pleasure not only to watch them perform but also to deal with them, nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for a fun night with a versatile band look no further!

Brando

Thank you so so much for such an amazing evening and please thank Alex & Phil and the rest of the band. You guys were absolutely incredible! Everyone had the best evening!

Thank you for everything

Brando

I would like to say a huge thank you to Irving and Brando for a truly amazing evening. Everything went absolutely perfectly and the selection and range of music played was great. All our wedding guests hit the dance floor straight away and had the best evening! Thank you so so much.
Kind regards
Lottie

Brando

Brando were truly brilliant! They really really made our night. I mentioned about 30 minutes before they started their first set that my husband was Australian, named 3 songs he and his friends would love to hear and they delivered on all of them! It made it so personal to us and the Aussies loved it, even prompting a cameo from one of our guests!

All the tracks they played were great and our guests loved them too, I can not recommend them enough.

Thank you for making our wedding even better, we need to do it all over again so we can have the boys back.

Brando

Hi Irving, I just wanted say thanks for sending the boys around last week. Although they had a hard act to follow, they were fantastic, excellent, superb and not only that they all were very nice chaps. Please pass on our thanks and we look forward to hearing them again soon.

Brando

The band played amazingly, at our wedding. Me and my wife we're over the moon. Are guest we're loving it and up dancing all night. I would definitely recommend Brando to anyone who is looking for a band for a wedding, party or any occasion. Thank you again Brando, you made our wedding, are guest haven't stopped talking about it!!!!

Brando

Awesome. Totally flexible with our last minute weather effected changes on the day and made the ceremony brilliant then an awesome gig after the food. Thank you

Brando

I had Brando as my wedding band and they were sensational. Very professional from the moment I booked. So friendly and easy to work with and most importantly the best sound ever! Great interaction with the crowd. Every guest has mentioned how great they were. The band was always going to be very important to me. The bar was high. Brando totally exceeded it. Thank you for making our day perfect.

Brando

Happy guests means a happy host. Thank you so much and please come back another time. We love you.

Brando

The setting was perfect and we danced so much we hurt on Sunday morning.....Brando are such a great band - they just “get it “ don’t they?

Brando

What a brilliant party! We had so much fun and the band were great!

Brando

Everything was so lovely, amazing band!

Brando

The band was terrific and lots of people on the dance floor demonstrated that.

Brando

I loved being there, dancing like a wild thing to the brilliant band.

Brando

We loved dancing the night away to that absolutely fab band.

Brando

A delicious supper and what a great band!

Brando

We loved the Janefest theme and of course THE BAND!! Sara couldn’t decide which band member she fancied the most!

Brando

Delicious food and amazing band.

Brando

We had a fab time and thought the band was brilliant.

Brando

What fantastic guys to work with, definitely hope to see them again! They definitely made the night.

Brando

Brando were absolutely brilliant and we had such a fun evening. So many of our guests have said to us that they were the best wedding band they have ever seen. We couldn't have been happier with the service from Hireaband and also the performance from Brando.

Brando

You simply couldn't ask for a better band! These guys are s serious cut above the average wedding band. Genuinely, they should be famous! They literally made our day....the crowd practically tore the venue down they were having such a good time. Can play anything and make even the golden oldies sound modern enough for the young ones too.
Absolutely amazing, I will definitely be using them again!

Brando

The band were amazing, our dinner and speeches ran very late , but the band were relaxed and set up when we were ready. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks guys xx

Brando

This band was professional but also so much fun!
It was heart-breaking for some of our guests not to have an encore as they enjoyed the evening so much.
The first dance was just unforgettable because you guys played Paolo Nutini to perfection! We also thought you didn't do the Dire Straits badly either. ;) All in all we'd have you playing again tomorrow- great entertainers and a definite highlight of the wedding. Thank you!

Brando

Just a quick note to thank you and the band for making Chris and my birthday celebrations so much fun. We had a great night and loved every minute. Without exception, all our guests have commented how good the band were.

Thank you again and look forward to coming and hearing the band play soon.

Brando

I booked Brando for my husbands 50th after seeing them at the mulberry end of summer party.They never fail to get the whole crowd on the dance floor,and seem to know every song in the universe!!! They are very professional and enthusiastic,and very keen to please which is very refreshing for such an amazing band.

Everyone at our party wanted to know who they were, and many said it was the best band they had ever heard!I would agree with this....Just Awesome!!!

Book them to guarantee the best night of your life!

Brando

Everything was absolutely brilliant we couldn't have been happier. Brando played non stop with great style and really connected with our guests who loved, loved them. The dance floor was full to bursting point for well over 3 hours Non stop and the feedback from our guests both on the night and since has been mega positive. What an amazing band - they took our wedding celebrations from great to exceptional.

Brando

Wow, what a band!!! We hired Brando to play at our intimate wedding venue and they were truly amazing! A lovely group of guys and very professional yet they kept their laid back style. The sound man was great at ensuring that the music level was at the correct level for all of our guests and the venue. They set up without any fuss and even cornered themselves into the fireplace area in order to give our guests as much dancing space as possible- and didn't we need it! With an already fantastic set list, they were so talented that they were able to play any song requested too. Bando were recommended to us by friends and family and my husband and I would certainly recommend Brando to anyone looking for a fantastic band for any event. Thanks so much guys, you took our wedding from wonderful to spectacular!!

Brando

'Brando rocked our wedding. Fact. Besides their now legendary status among our friends, they were fabulous to work with in the lead up and on the day.

Brando

It's really simple - book Brando and all of your friends will tell you they're the best band they have ever seen. We have booked them half a dozen times for private parties and they get better each party - something you wouldn't believe possible if you've seen them. The secret is their enthusiasm - they party as hard as you do, and don't believe in curfews....you'll never regret booking them.

Brando

Guaranteed great entertainment for clients whether its a party for 100 or 1,000 , a museum event or a party in a tent!

Brando

Highly reliable , highly recommendable . They always get the mood of the party just right.

Brando

'Brando are a brilliant band who I have now seen a couple of times. Not only are they massively talented musicians but it's so apparent that they love what they do and really put a lot of effort into their performances. It seems really important to them that everyone had a good time and they're brilliant at interacting with the audience, witty, funny and very approachable. They performed at a close friends wedding and were just fabulous, they really played an important part on a very special day. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a band for any event.'

Brando

'As my wife and I are from musical backgrounds we were always going to recruit a live band to play at our wedding.Having been independently recommended Brando by separate people, we were very keen watch this band in action. From the first time we saw them perform we knew that we had to get this energetic and exciting band play at our wedding.

Brando

They played at our wedding and their vast catalogue of songs were performed with energy, enthusiasm and excellence. The dance floor was swiftly packed with guests of all ages. We have lost count of the huge number of them who commented on how amazing the band was.

Brando

It was also a very touching moment when they played our first dance "God Only Knows" beautifully. We will never forget as the song and arrangements were simply stunning and captivated our guests.

Brando

This band is technically gifted, fun energetic, and have amazing knack of getting people on the dance floor as soon as they start playing. We would highly recommend this band for any wedding or event. Brando enhanced what was already a special day. We will also continue to watch and support this fantastic live act perform whenever possible.'
