Amanda – Private Party – Adderley Edge Golf Club
What a FANTASTIC band! Slinky played at my 40th birthday party. My friends still haven’t stopped raving about what a great band they were and what a fantastic night they made it into 6 weeks on! Slinky definitely turned the party into a real event, everyone danced and really really enjoyed the music they played and had to be kicked off the dance floor at 1 as the venue was closing up. Thoroughly recommend and would not hesitate to book them again!
Simon Hulme – Birthday Party
Slinky were absolutely fantastic…great guys also. Happy to work with me on info and music in between would definitely use them again, and recommend them …vast array of music!

Paul Cullen – Wedding – Thornton Manor
Hi Slinky, Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thanks for a great job on our wedding night. Thanks also for spotting the first dance track was not right and changing it. We got a lot of compliments about you on the night and will be recommending you in the future.

Kate Hooton – Wedding – Farington Loodge
We would like to thank Slinky for a brilliant set at our recent wedding. The band was amazing and all of our guests commented on how good they were. A great choice made and got everyone in the party spirit!

John Simpson – Private Party –The Eden Armoury
Hi, Just a quick Email to let you know that everyone commented on “Slinky”, saying that they were awesome. We’ve had a lot of excellent feedback from all of the mess members, saying that you all made their night with all the songs you played, so thanks for making our night easier, hopefully you all enjoyed playing as much as we did listening. Thanks again

Mark Roberts – NHS Party – Crown Plaza
Slinky performed at the Trust’s Focusing on Excellence Awards in 2013, to a crowd of over 300 people, and played a huge part in making it the best one we’ve ever held. We booked the band at extremely short notice (only 2 weeks before the event) but they were a joy to work with, keeping in touch with us during the run up to the event and arriving in plenty of time on the night to be set up and ready to go well in advance of the start of the event. Their performance was exceptional; packing the dance floor from the off and keeping it full until they’d finished their set (full value at circa 90 minutes). Their set included hit after hit from throughout the last 50 years, covering all of the main genres and catering for all tastes (they even slotted in a few of my own personal requests). All of the feedback we’ve had from our staff who attended the event has been positive, with the boys from Slinky stealing the show. I’d recommend them to anyone; we’ve already made enquiries about whether they’re available for us again next year!

Kim Davies – Wedding – Chester
“Hi, just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding, you were brilliant!! Everybody we’ve spoken to has said how great you were and how you really made the evening. Thank you thank you thank you! And if anyone is reading this and wondering whether they should book Slinky, just do it!! ”

Kathryn Law – Wedding – Royal Clifton Hotel
We were very impressed with the band. The performance was outstanding and the dance floor kept busy, even though a lot of our friends don’t dance! They were very accommodating with our song requests and played a great mix of music for guests of all ages. Everyone had a great time and when we speak to people who were at our wedding everyone comments on how good the band was. We had an iPad playlist service between sets and all of our requests were included, even though we changed our 1st dance song at 24 hours’ notice! The band was very professional, friendly and easy to deal with which is very important on a day that we had a lot going on. We would definitely recommend Slinky for any events you are planning. Thanks a lot for doing such a great job!

Pete and Michelle – Wedding – Thornton Hall
Thanks for a great night’s entertainment on Saturday. Several people on the night commented on how good the band were and several since have said the same. Excellent choice of songs and a pleasure to deal with. Could you pass my thanks on to George as well, he must have fitted in nearly every request, if not all of them, again very professional job. Would recommend you all anytime.
Thanks again, Pete and Michelle.

Dominic Eaves – Wedding – Belle Epoque
Slinky played at our wedding and I cannot recommend them highly enough. From making the booking through to performing on the night I found them very professional, helpful and extremely accommodating. A thorough questionnaire with our preferences meant nothing was missed and they even learnt a new song to play for our first dance. And WOW what can say about the performance. It was fantastic. They are great musicians and entertainers, who are very tight and know the songs well. The dance floor was packed all night and we received loads of compliments on their performance. Thanks guys you really added to our big day.

Becky Sprowell – Wedding – Cheshire
We had Slinky play for our wedding evening do – they were absolutely fantastic. They got everybody up dancing and we had a great party! Brilliant song choices sung so very well. Band members were lovely. All of our guests have commented on how good Slinky was – we are very very happy, so thank you.

Felicity Munro, Wedding Event, Derbyshire
Slinky were lively and energetic from the word go; they had everyone dancing and read their audience brilliantly. They were smart and professional and were also a really lovely and relaxed bunch of guys. I honestly can’t praise them enough. They made the evening for us and we’re still getting comments about how good they were now!!

Wilmslow Town Council – Party – Warrington
Thanks for yesterday. I’m pleased that that Slinky enjoyed headlining the stage. I received many positive comments. Please pass on my thanks again to the other band members. Regards Matthew

Mrs J Dawson – Wedding – The Grosvenor Chester
Slinky just made our wedding evening – I can’t thank you all enough. Our friends and family were so impressed with them that everyone commented on the performance they had given. Huge thanks for making it an amazing wedding party. I need to find a reason to book them again sometime soon!

Chris McCarthy – 18th Birthday – Manchester
I would just like to say how good Slinky were last night. We hired them last night for my sisters 18th and they blew us away, absolutely amazing. They got everyone up, and they were so professional. I would, and have, highly recommend them to everyone I know. Thank you so much.

Charlie M – Wedding – Llandudno
Slinky were absolutely brilliant, we had lots of great comments about them and they kept the dance floor busy all night. In fact thanks to them lending us the sound system we kept everyone dancing until after 2am!! They were a good bunch of lads and receptive to my drunken father’s requests. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks for your help Tracey, I know it took a while but we definitely made the right decision.

Holly Griffiths – Corporate Party – Shrewsbury
Hi Stuart Just wanted to send you and the guys a note to thank you very much for making our night on Friday. We all had a fantastic time and everyone has been commenting on how great Slinky were, you really got the party going and played the perfect mix of music for us. I just hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Anyway, thank you once again and I will definitely be recommending you and hope to book you again!

Stephen Williams – Wedding – Greater Manchester
The band have nothing short of fantastic. They were easily obtainable with my (tons) of questions and requests. Once at the wedding the set they played was the exact mix bag of genres we asked for and they played them all superbly. I kept being told all night by our wedding guests how good they sounded. They are a very chilled easy going bunch of guys which, believe me on an already stressful wedding day is certainly what’s needed!

Kelly and Mark – Wedding Event – Cumbria
We hired Slinky for our wedding in the Lake District and where delighted we did. They were extremely professional, set up and ready to go as soon as we arrived to the evening venue without us even knowing they had arrived. They played a great selection of songs that kept everyone happy and dancing all night, also the DJ that came with them was great too. Our guests are still talking about the ‘gig’ 6 months later. Very approachable bunch of lads and we would definitely recommend them to everyone and we will be using them again in future as soon as we think of an excuse for another party!

Michelle and Gerrod – Wedding Event – Mottram Hall
Slinky played at my wedding at Mottram Hall. They were the best! I would recommend the guys to anybody! I’m 30 next year and hopefully will have the guys again as they were very professional and I want to say huge thank you to you all for ending our wedding with the best variety of music from the 60s up till now. Along with the DJ that came with them they kept everyone dancing all night, just fantastic!

Jessica – Wedding – Shrewsbury
The band was brilliant. They knew exactly how to get the crowd dancing and enjoying themselves. They were professional and sounded and looked great. As we had not heard the band prior to booking we were a little apprehensive as to the standard but we need not have worried at all. Prior to the wedding they contacted us with details of how we would like them to dress, song requests etc. This put us at ease, particularly given their speed of response. Everything was as requested. Overall we were very impressed and would highly recommend them.

A Hulbert – Private Party – Darcy’s
I really enjoyed my 21st at Darcy’s and Slinky were brilliant. Everyone commented on how good they were and how they got the party going. I was impressed at their professionalism and how they gauged the mood of the event and responded accordingly. Thanks Again!

Dave Scott – The Hilton – Manchester

Steven and Johanna Hulme – Wedding – Shrigley
Slinky performed at our recent wedding in the Tilden Suite at Shrigley Hall, the venue was ideal for a band and we could not fault Slinky. They played 2 great sets and definitely got the party started. The band was polite and courteous, and fitted right in with the guests at the wedding. We want to thank them so much for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the future …………. just be warned if you don’t usually dance………….you will when they play! Slinky Rock!!!

Jane Hart – Wedding – Wirral
We booked Slinky for our wedding evening reception and they absolutely made the night. Within a day of our booking Damien from the band contacted us with a questionnaire to complete to ensure that everything on the night was perfect – like what songs from their repertoire we wanted and how we wanted the band to be dressed. I was really worried that the venue had a sound limiter and Slinky worked with us to ensure everything would be ok and even offered an electronic drum kit to limit the noise.

Slinky turned up in black suits just as I had requested and they looked great. The band did 2 x one hour sets as we requested and they were brilliant. Prior to the first set I felt that the night was a bit flat, and nobody was dancing, but as soon as the band started to play the dance floor was packed! It was the same for their second set too. The sets were great, the songs were all well-known and flowed from one to the next perfectly and absolutely everyone commented how brilliant Slinky was. You could also rate their set by the number of people dancing! I cannot thank the band members enough for everything they did or recommend them highly enough!

Joe Goatley – Charity – Gloucestershire
Just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for Saturday night!
Everyone had a great time and all the feedback regarding all you guys has been great! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your performance and I’m certain that the success of the night was largely down to the way you kept everyone so well entertained and got them all up dancing! Thanks once again.

Mike Thwaites DJ – Wedding – Cheshire
Worked alongside these guys for a wedding tonight, excellent sums them up nicely, very professional, great sound with a varied set list. Very energetic performance, nice one!

John Shelton – Wedding – Wilmslow
Slinky played at our Wedding and were fantastic. Lots our guests commented on how great it was to have live music opposed to a DJ and really made the evening stand out. What impressed me most was the fact that the lead singer of the Band was unfortunately taken ill just before our Wedding (these things can’t be helped), but to the bands credit they were able to find a replacement on extremely short notice who not only filled in, but was fantastic and you wouldn’t have known otherwise had they not informed us. Professional outfit throughout and we would certainly recommend them to anyone having an event with entertainment.

Mark and Liz – Wedding – Middleton Lodge
“Hi, we are just back from honeymoon and wanted to say a huuuge thank you to you guys for playing at our wedding at Middleton Lodge a few weeks ago. You were absolutely fantastic and everyone was raving about what a great band you are and how much they all enjoyed it. A huge group hug, all singing along to all these things that I’ve done has to be one of our highlights of the day. We cannot recommend you highly enough – thank you so so much. Mark and Liz. xx”

Rhiannon and Richard – Wedding – Leeds
Richard and I had an absolutely fantastic time on Saturday. You guys were absolutely brilliant, so many of our guests have commented on how great you were and have asked us to forward on your details. You played such a fantastic variety of music, which appealed to everyone from the youngest guests to the oldest! I don’t think I have ever been to a party where people were up dancing on the very first song, so this is testament to you guys. It was brilliant have the option for a DJ in-between and after you had finished Thank you so much, you really made the party. .

Lee and Steph – Wedding – Chorley
The first thing to say is a big thanks to the whole band. You definitely made our evening reception go with a bang and kept the dance floor full all night. All the guests I’ve spoken to really enjoyed the music and many of them also said that you’re the best band they’d seen at any function – and I completely agree! Thanks for making it a great night to remember – and just like I’ve read in some of your other testimonials: I can’t wait to find another excuse to book you guys again! Thanks again from both of us.

Eleanor and Robert – Wedding – Northallerton
We have just returned from honeymoon and we would like to say a massive thank you to Slinky for really nailing it at our wedding reception. The music was fantastic, the band play to a really high standard and a number of our friends and family commented on how impressed they were. The band paid real attention to what we’d asked for (including our less conventional choices!) and gave us exactly what we wanted rather than what they thought we should get. Our guests were dancing throughout the entire set and probably could have carried on for hours! Slinky were also extremely professional in setting up and packing up quickly and efficiently, without any issues or complaint. You guys made our night and were worth every penny.

Lindsey – Wedding – Newcastle upon Tyne
Thanks again for such a great evening!! Our friends and family were raving about you guys and asking for your details. A huge thanks to the band Slinky who played at our wedding. There repertoire was perfect for the occasion and from the moment they started playing the dance floor was filled until the end of the night. We even had an encore! Slinky were really professional and communication was excellent. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks again

Natalie and Nick – Wedding – Dunham Massey
Nick and I absolutely loved Slinky and would recommend to anybody – which we have as a few guests asked for contact details after the big day and hopefully they will keep you in mind.

The live sets performed were incredible and you really got us as a couple playing the music we love, every guest was so impressed with the quality of the music and how professional you all were. By far the easiest part of the day, you turned up on time, set up without the disturbing anybody (I didn’t even realize you were there) and then you started playing and the atmosphere went through the roof. The last dance, I predict a riot was the absolute highlight and we have the best photos of the night!! I hope that you all had enough to eat and drink on the night and honestly we really can’t thank you enough, Slinky absolutely made our wedding day, Thank you, Natalie and Nick.

Jarrod Cairns – Wedding – Eaves Hall
From the moment we chose Slinky and booked them the service was first class. In our initial discussions on which music to have for our Wedding the band were open and flexible, nothing seemed to be off limits. This was evident in our first dance choice which wasn’t a “usual” first dance song choice. The band took it and made it their own without fuss or question and delivered a fantastic version of the song we picked. On the day they were punctual and very professional, setting up efficiently and with no disturbance to the rest of the proceedings. Right form the very first song the band were lively, fun and encouraged the guests to get involved. Clearly being accomplished musicians, the songs were delivered expertly and the whole band looked like they enjoy their work and enjoy entertaining.
The dance floor was full all night and the DJ set in between live sets and at the end of the night was exactly what we wanted. So many of our guests have commented on how good Slinky were. They helped make the night so much fun, got the guests dancing and we felt like they were part of the day, not just a band that turned up and played.
A great night and a great, friendly and professional band. Will recommend all day long!!

James and Lauren – Wedding – Leyland
You and your band we’re awesome mate, you honestly were! Everyone has mentioned it this morning saying how good the band was, you really made the night. Me and Lauren we’re over the moon and will certainly highly recommend you to anyone who asks; without a doubt. Thanks again for making our wedding night, cheers mate!!

Claire and Danny Hughes – Cock O Barton – Malpas
Slinky band were completely professional and helpful throughout booking and at all stages. We think you are a very talented band and everyone had a great time. Our aim was to get people up, dancing and enjoying themselves and I feel Slinky without doubt nailed it. You played two great sets with a range of music to suit everyone’s tastes. I would without hesitation book Slinky again and highly recommend to others. A massive thank you from myself and new husband. We wish Slinky all the best for a successful future.

Andy and Laura – Wedding – Shireoaks
Having booked Slinky for a party to celebrate our wedding in Italy, We had never booked a band prior to this event and really did not know what to expect. Their music sounded great on the demos on their website and when we met the guys on the night of the party, they were great – really friendly, cheerful and great at organizing our night with announcements, etc. The range of music performed by The Slinky was so varied, which suited us and our guests perfectly. We requested a general mixture of genres and from the moment the band commenced their first set, the dance floor was full and it stayed that way all night! They also ensured they had two particular songs we requested on their ipad playlist, without hesitation. We were thrilled with Slinky and the service they provided. They really made our special night a success. We cannot thank them enough and would not hesitate to recommend them (and of course book them again) in the future. Thanks guys!!”
We really mean it – I don’t think the night would have been half as enjoyable without you guys – you were great and we really will be recommending you to all friends and family! Thank you!

Heather – Private Party – Stockport
The Slinky Band performed for my husband’s 60th birthday party and they were brilliant. They played just the music we wanted (from many decades to cover everyone’s tastes) and provided a playlist for between their sessions, which was also excellent. All our friends loved them. They set everything up on time, were well prepared, and looked good and really nice guys! Thank you.”

P.s I got an extra bit of feedback for you this morning. The club manager (whom I rang to thank) told me that his staff who were working that evening said they’d have paid good money to see the band!! And they got them free of course!

Tammy Orrill – Private Party – Nottinghamshire
Amazing band! Made my birthday party extra special! 🙂

Helen and I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you and your band for the performance you all put on Friday. You were all absolutely fantastic, everyone commented on how good you were and we have already passed on your details to someone else, with a strong recommendation. You really made our night! Good to meet you all and thanks once again, Graham & Helen

Scott and Sally – Wedding – Milton
“Slinky have been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We booked them having seen them at our friend’s wedding in 2011, we thought they were amazing then but they’ve got even better. A great variety of songs, played brilliantly, meant that the dance floor was packed all night. Many of our guests commented that you are the best band they’d seen at any event. A word to the DJ too who was also great, I would recommend adding this service. We can’t thank you all enough and we’ll definitely book you again for our next big event!”

Debra and Craig Massey – Wedding – Preston

Gregg and Sheena – Wedding – New Brighton
Hi Guys, Words are not enough to say how pleased we were with your performance at our wedding. I have to say that on the night you got the place rocking and since then so many of our guests have commented on how good you were. We would both like to pass on a massive thank you to all the band…. you are true performers of the highest standard and I would not have a moment’s hesitation to recommend you guys to anyone looking for a band for a future function. The set list you chose was perfect… it is always a shame to go to a wedding and see the guests sitting down but i have to say apart from the really old duffers! You had everyone up dancing all night. Seeing my mum dancing to ‘I want be just like you’ from the jungle book was absolutely hilarious! Some of our guests thought Sheena and I were leaving at that point as we danced out of the door! It was brilliant 😉

Perfect 10 all-round chaps… we can’t say more than that…If you ever need a reference or anyone wants a verbal reference please ask. We would both be more than happy to help… You made the wedding night perfect! Look forward to seeing you gig again someday…Our very best wishes, Greg & Sheena Morgan

Nicola Harman – Wedding – Liverpool University
“We can’t praise Slinky enough for the fantastic set they played at our wedding in July. The band were professional and were able to accommodate our tight schedule. Slinky played a brilliant selection of songs that filled the dance floor all evening. Everyone commented on how good they were and what a great time they had dancing the night away. The only negative was our sore feet the following day from dancing so much! We would definitely recommend Slinky to anyone looking for a band to play their wedding or party”

Amanda – Birthday Party – Stockport
What a FANTASTIC band! Slinky played at my 40th birthday party and friends still haven’t stopped raving about what a great band they were and what a fantastic night they made it into 6 weeks on! Slinky definitely turned the party into a real event, everyone danced and really really enjoyed the music they played and had to be kicked off the dance floor at 1 as the venue was closing up. Thoroughly recommend and would not hesitate to book them again!

Lindsay & John McKimmie – Wedding – Thornton Hough
