Tribute Act and Function Band for Weddings, Parties and Events
We recently danced the night away to this fabulous 50s band at a family party and would LOVE to see them at your wedding! They are a 13-member Blues Brothers tribute band but with loads of other floor-fillers thrown in - absolutely brilliant. http://www.thebluesothers.com/aboutus/

Amy and Hefin at Ffynone Mansion - Whole Picture Weddings
Fiddlebox - Welsh folkdance duo who are completely fab, so lively and vibrant. fiddlebox.net/ They can be your background music while you mingle; then can call Ceilidh dances (which always make for hilarious photos!) or just play extremely danceable "bluesy folk with a large dollop of pop-rock" that will get all ages up on the floor. First ever wedding held at Ffynone Mansion, photographed by Whole Picture Weddings.

Wedding Band Wales - soundAWAKE Party Band
Fabulous lively band who play a huge variety of covers, old and new, and are great at keeping your dance floor filled! In spite of their very impressive client list, the lead singer Nicki is a lovely down-to-earth lady who'll make it totally easy for you to get organised with them. You'll have made a new friend long before the wedding rolls around. Click to go to their web site.

Llinos and Dylan’s coastal wedding
This is our very favourite magician Luke. He will not disappoint!! Great for either the hour of mingling before dinner, or the gap that always happens between dinner and dancing. http://lukecloseupmagician.com/ Coastal marquee wedding by Whole Picture Weddings

Tori and Rich at Manorbier Castle
Young pianist Cai Maxwell can be found here http://caimaxwellmusic.com/ Get him if you can! Absolutely amazing music from someone who feels like another guest.

Wedding with Jess and Mark at Newcastle Emlyn RC Church and Rhosygilwen Mansion
These guys absolutely take the biscuit. The most amazing band we've ever seen - they play huge gigs for celebrities and we still can't believe they came all the way out to West Wales for a wedding! But they did it once so presumably they'd do it again. They're called Fake Tan!! If you’re looking for a cover band who cannot fail to get everyone dancing and do it hilariously, with loads of energy, and great crowd interaction this is it. www.faketanband.com #faketanband #weddingentertainment

Book Tenors / Divas Incognito - Contact performer agent
Tenors / Divas Incognito http://www.jla.co.uk/cabaret-and-dance-bands/tenors--divas-incognito They pretended to be catering staff for the whole night (they genuinely waitered) and then turned out to be the most incredible performers ever! The show came right after the speeches, just as that lull begins. They sang for best part of an hour, getting people up on stage, and the whole audience on their feet waving napkins! Would LOVE to see them again!!
