What our couples say...

"The Sidekicks were amazing at our wedding. They performed a great acoustic set during the drinks reception which really set the tone for the rest of the day. They were able to adapt to a last second change of mind for our first dance. They then rocked the rest of the night. The DJ set also meant that the evening was completely smooth and my wife and I didn’t have to do anything. All our guest had an amazing time and the sidekicks were one of the reasons for this."

What our couples say...

"You won't regret booking these guys for your wedding, or any other event! I had a fairly small wedding (around 40 people) recently at Lapstone Barn and one of my worries was that the evening might be a bit 'dead' with a lot of the guests being a bit older, and the younger ones not really into 'dancing' and I love dancing! So it was a priority that the evening entertainment was going to be good and keep the atmosphere going - and that they did!! My guests absolutely loved this band, their sound was excellent and the songs were great. They were such a lovely bunch of guys and it was a real pleasure having them play at my wedding! I actually danced until the very end of the night, and it was still buzzing right before the venue was closing for the night! Thanks so much guys. You made the process so easy and smooth and was a stress off my shoulders! Booking a band is a big cost to the wedding, but god it was worth it!"
— Natasha Stubbs, wedding at Lapstone Barn, Chipping Campden, UK
