My husband & I booked The Cheers Function Band for our wedding on the 05/10/2023. After searching for hours and hours for a band they stood out the most as they had so many 5* reviews! And now we know why! We spoke to Ben throughout the whole process and his communication was excellent.

We booked an acoustic duo set for our welcome drinks and the quartet band + saxophone for the evening! We were super keen to have a saxophone finish after seeing this at our friend’s wedding. It was a great addition and a fantastic way to end the night.

The band was absolutely fantastic on the night. We would like to say a special thank you to our lead singer Seonaid - she was brilliant & really engaged with the guests. We had so much complaints about how amazing she was!

We would highly recommend The Cheers Function Band for your Wedding / Event! Thank you so for being part of our special day!

Charlotte & Bradley (Wedding)05.10.2023

Just wanted to say thank you for Saturday. It was really awesome and everyone loved the band so much. The first dance song was incredible and it was just a really fun and awesome night! You kept us dancing all night and that was what we wanted so we are so grateful for that! And all the song choices were great!

Rhiannon & Alex (Wedding)13.05.2023

The Cheers sang for us at a recent party, on a very cold night in a field! They were in fabulous voice and had everyone up and dancing to great songs. The vocalists have fantastic voices, the music is note perfect and many guests commented how great the band were! Thanks guys – it was a fabulous night!

Elle (50th Birthday Party)07.09.2019

The band were great and our guests really didn’t want to leave the dance floor at the end of the evening! What bigger praise can anyone give? Many thanks and we will be sure to book you again.

Squires (Corporate Event)04.09.2019, Squires

Very professional band from booking through to performance. Great variety in their repertoire too. Sound absolutely brilliant!! Would highly recommend this fabulous band.

Rob (Fundraising Event)31.08.2019

The Cheers performed at our Wedding in September 2022. They were so fantastic. We had a full dance floor all night. They learnt our first song perfectly and the whole evening was amazing! The organisation from the manager, Ben, was great. Our wedding had been postponed twice due to Covid and despite that Ben was so approachable and easy to deal with. I’d thoroughly recommend them.

Grace & Bou (Wedding)03.09.2022

We booked The Cheers for our wedding and they were awesome!! So many guests commented on how good the band was and we had a full dance floor throughout both sets. The lead singer was fabulous! Ben, the manager, was a delight to work with. Absolutely professional and very organised which meant they could set up easily and we could get on with everything else whilst they did so. They allowed us to generate a bespoke playlist from their repertoire and even learned a new song for our first dance. Couldn’t recommend The Cheers enough and would definitely use them again.

Carol & Jerry (Wedding)03.08.2019

The Cheers were absolutely fantastic at our wedding this summer and I can highly recommend them! They were exceptional on the day, the dance floor was always full and they knew how to work the crowd perfectly. In the months leading up to the event, all communication was professional, and nothing was too much trouble. We particularly loved that they learned our first dance song, and even customised it to a different tempo for us! Thank you so much to the whole band, we had many compliments from our guests and you really made our wedding reception the success it was!

James & Laura (Wedding)20.07.2019

A huge thank you to The Cheers for playing at our summer party – they made sure the dancefloor was full all night long! Such a pleasure to work with, they made everything easy and stress-free and were happy to adapt to different timings on the night. They also had a great repertoire and had people from 5 to 85 dancing. We would highly recommend!

Harken UK (Corporate Event)22.06.2018, Harken UK

Absolutely professional Band great singers and musicians very friendly and willing to plan music choices /requirements beforehand. All the guests, young and older ones praised this band and they made everything perfect. I highly recommend the cheers many thanks.

Marguerite (70th Birthday Party)13.07.2019

Fabulous band. Amazing selection of music and got everyone up on dancefloor. Great musicians and singers. And accommodating – we didn’t start until much later than predicted but they were able to flex the timings. Great organisation by Ben in advance meant that all the logistics went very smoothly. I would highly recommend and use again!

Sarah (50th Birthday Party)08.06.2019

We hired The Cheers for a 50th birthday party, they were professional, talented and so much fun! The dance floor was full all evening and everyone had a fantastic time. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Michelle Savage (50th Birthday Party)09.11.2019

The Cheers were absolutely incredible. We had them at our wedding at Old Greens Barn in Newdigate and they just sounded amazing. They got everyone of all ages up on their feet and i think some of our guests didn’t stop the whole time. The vocalist were brilliant and we were really amazed at how many comments we had from our guests about how superb the band was. I highly recommend going for the quintet set up so you get a mix of male and female vocals. The band has a great repertoire to choose from that appeals to all ages and they put together the most perfect set list of all our favourite songs and some other greats too. Ben the band manager was faultless, from start to finish he was just amazing. So easy to speak to and communicate with, he really was a dream. It is so nice to have a supplier that knows what they are doing, can be trusted and is just so effortless. We cannot rate him enough. Thank you to all of the Cheers for really making our day so so special. We can’t recommend them more highly.

Fleur & Matt (Wedding)04.05.2019

We hired the two-piece set for our University Ball and they were absolutely exquisite. Everybody loved the energy, vibe and song selection, and they were also a dream logistically- Ben replied quickly and with a really friendly manner. Would definitely recommend this band to anyone that want’s to have a good time at their function!

Joshua Harrison (Dinner/Dance)26.01.2019

We saw The Cheers perform at our friend’s wedding and noticed how they had everyone on the dance floor having a good time, they had an excellent repertoire and stood out among all the weddings we attended that year (6 in total).
Getting in contact, a quote and the contracts all sorted was a breeze, with no hidden fees. They were honest and upfront about what the costs would be, and in the end, they were extremely good.

Ben was incredible in the run up, super organised and responsive. He really went out of his way to be accommodating and gave us such peace of mind knowing it was all in safe hands.

On the day they were fantastic. Many of our friends and family told us how much they loved the evening. The Cheers had everyone up on their feet and made the it a real party we wouldn’t forget!


If you’re looking for the perfect wedding band, look no further!

Peter & Alice (Wedding)22.09.2018

Cheers Band were absolutely incredible. They offer different numbers of band members to cater to different styles (trio, quintet etc...) and the whole booking process was quick and simplistic. They also provide a clear list of songs that they have in their repertoire, with the option to specifically include/exclude favourites on the night. Their performance on the day itself was fantastic. They have great energy that encouraged many people to be on the dancefloor to enjoy the evening right until the end. They also handled our father/daughter and first dances very well, introducing each one respectively. My wife and I would totally recommend. Cheers Band are great value for money as well as being excellent performers required for an excellent party. Thankyou for an awesome evening!! Dom & Mere

Dom & Mere (Wedding)22.07.2022

We booked The Cheers to play at our wedding and were absolutely delighted with the performance, from playing our first dance song to the crowd interaction. Great repertoire of songs as well, and fantastic communication and service throughout the whole process. Very polished, and would highly recommend!

David & Laura (Wedding)13.08.2021

We organised The Cheers to play at our wedding in September 2018, and it was one of the best decisions of the day. I think there are three reasons why I would recommend them:
1. The music is great – The Cheers played a selection of oldies and new music to cater to the tastes of all our guests. We had a lot of kids and they even played some things purposefully to get them on the dance floor with their parents – a lovely touch. They are very talented musicians (with credentials!) and made everything sound great in our venue, even though they only had a short time to sound-check. We received numerous compliments that the band were excellent. They learnt our first dance perfectly and performed it exactly how we wanted. Just fantastic.

2. They are very professional – Our speeches and breakfast overran by about 45 minutes, but the band were extremely accommodating and calm about the delay. They setup extremely quickly to get us back on track and they were thoroughly proficient in breaking down at the end. They brought all their own equipment and everything looked and sounded great.

3. They were very easy to work with – Even though we didn’t meet the band until the day of the wedding, they were extremely easy and pleasant to deal with. Our main point of contact was Ben (the band manager) who was charming, quick to respond to calls and messages and very helpful. Formal arrangements were quick and professional and the entire interaction went very smoothly.

Overall, the experience of hiring and hearing The Cheers was faultless. Thank you so much for rounding off our special day with fantastic entertainment.

Jez & Jo (Wedding)01.09.2018

My wife and I recently had The Cheers perform at our wedding where they smashed out banger after banger to ensure all the guests had sore feet and smiles on their faces at the end of the night. Ben’s communication from the very beginning was excellent ensuring our set list was personalised, they even learned our first dance which we greatly appreciated. Between sets they played our created playlist on Spotify which was super helpful. Their set up was swift and the brass accompaniment really took it to the next level. If you are looking a function band for a wedding or party look no further, The Cheers are the one for you! Thanks Conor & Rebecca

Conor & Rebecca (Wedding)30.07.2022

The band were absolutely excellent and really brought a great vibe to the Hewlett-Packard office! I can tell you for certain that the band did indeed exceed our expectations, and we will keep you in mind for next year. A massive thank you from myself and the HPE team!

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (Corporate Event)03.07.2018, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

We held a garden party July 2021 and The Cheers performed. Rhys and Ben were a fantastic duo, who rolled with the flow of the party, adapted to the vibe and were flexible with our timings. They were friendly and kind people and were happy to chat to the guests and ourselves. The communication before the event was fantastic, giving us a chance to give details on the event and guests and even choose songs from their extensive repertoire list. Professional in the organisation and booking of the band. Excellent quality band, great musicians. I highly recommend the band. Thanks guys!

Caroline (Garden Party)24.07.2021

It’s fair to say The Cheers were fantastic at our wedding party. From learning our first dance song to calls for an encore from a packed dance floor at the end of the night, my wife and I couldn’t have asked for a better band. Ben and Faye.

Ben & Faye (Wedding)26.10.2019

The Cheers performed at our wedding in August 2021. They were absolutely fantastic and everyone had a brilliant time dancing. The acoustic duo were brilliant too. We couldn’t have wished for a better evening. Ben was great over the last 18 months especially as we had to delay twice but he was very reassuring and we managed to get the day we always wanted in the end. I would highly recommend The Cheers

Ed & Emma (Wedding)21.08.2021

Excellent communication throughout, arrived on time and set up quietly during dinner in a not particularly large marquee, in the middle of nowhere. Friendly and of course an excellent band, playing upbeat songs and a varied set. We have heard a lot from our guests that they thought they were great. The dancefloor was never empty!

Emma & Matt (Wedding)06.08.2022

We booked The Cheers band for our wedding reception after hearing them at a friends wedding a few years back. The atmosphere the band provides is electric and keeps your guests on the dance floor the entire night, which was exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Ben Thornton, the band manager, is approachable and super helpful in accommodating all your requests no matter how difficult they may be. We asked to swap one of the Dj sets for some Greek music which was no trouble for them to do. On the night the band were happy even though our food had been delayed which sadly ate into their first set of playing time. The band took this in their stride and played so amazingly to get our guests up on the dance floor for all the remaining time we had left! Absolutely incredible and I would 100% recommend them and book them again

Nina & Matthew (Wedding)04.06.2022

Just wanted to drop you a quick message this morning to say how great you were last night. The set list was perfect, the level was spot on, and you created a really great atmosphere for our drinks reception. More than a few people made an effort to tell me how good they thought you were. So thanks again to you and to the guys 🙂 really appreciate it!

ForgeRock (Corporate Event)08.10.2019

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding at New Place. We had the four piece band, and their performance was faultless. Everyone was up and dancing to all the songs and it certainly was one of the highlights of the day. Ben was easy to communicate with and always responded quickly. I’d very much highly recommend. Thank you again!

Sophie & Jon (Wedding)26.09.2019

The Cheers played at our wedding in August this year and were absolutely phenomenal from the first set to the last. They were new to the venue but you wouldn't have known. Fuss free, fantastic attitude and with the perfect amount of stage presence for a wedding. Furthermore, Ben, the band manager, was easy to contact, always engaging and friendly, and on-hand for anything we needed. I can't recommend these guys enough. Book them and you won't regret it!

Will & Aimee (Wedding)12.08.2023

The Cheers played for our wedding and were absolutely fantastic. The dancefloor was packed for the whole night and we had so many compliments from our guests about the quality of the music. Ben, their manager, is excellent at communication in the lead up to the day and so I didn't have any worries at all. Once again, the music was amazing, the band were so professional and we had the BEST evening. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Liv & Will (Wedding)02.09.2023

Thank you so much, you guys are amazing! Everyone said how much they enjoyed the band, and I couldn't recommend you all enough. Thanks again for an amazing night, my feet are still recovering from dancing all night!

Anna & James (Wedding Celebration)09.09.2023

Thank you! The Cheers band were fantastic and haven’t got a single negative to say. They were all highly professional and so approachable from start to finish if anything needed to be adapted it wasn’t a problem. The quality of the live music was faultless and we all really enjoyed it. Highly recommend.
