"The Mad Socks played at our wedding and were absolutely amazing!! We booked them on a bit of a whim as our friends had seen them and recommended them and it totally paid off! So many people have commented to us how great they were. They really had a great sound and a constant smile on their face. Would recommend them to anyone having a private event!"

"WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW! Guaranteed the first thing that anyone says to us when chatting about our wedding day is… “how good were your band?” We booked The Mad Socks for our wedding and they were unbelievable, the dance floor was full the entire night and the music was perfect for what the guests wanted. They arrived well in time, had everything set up without anyone noticing and took our evening party to the next level! They even learnt a new song for us that we love, thank you! We also had the DJ set with saxophone which went down an absolute treat!! We would say, if you’re undecided whether to book, definitely do it, it’s the one decision we are so glad we made. Thank you, Gemma and Hayley xx"
