A solid service well done
We're currently in the process of organising our wedding in the South of France. We really wanted a band, but looking for one had been a bit of a nightmare. Then I came across FixTheMusic. Within hours of making a listing for our event we had bands getting in touch with us. A solid service well done.

I've been really impressed with FixTheMusic. I sent an enquiry and had a response within just hours. I was then put into contact with the band and booked them that night. It was so easy. It's nice to know you have the security of them holding the payment until the band have performed.
Very efficient network and also user friendly! Just booked a professional harpist through FixTheMusic for my charity fundraising event. Thank you so much for all your help and assistance.
Exactly what we were looking for
Found us a great acoustic duo to play at our wedding in France, which is exactly what we were looking for. I would definitely recommend using the service!!
Extremely helpful in assisting me find our musicians. Can't wait to hear them on the day!
I cannot recommend FixTheMusic highly enough. I organised a Ball in London and was struggling to find musicians. We managed to source a high class harpist for our champagne reception as well as a string ensemble to perform over dinner who were excellent. If you are organising an event and want high quality musicians then FixTheMusic are a must use.
Great service from FixTheMusic!! They were super quick in finding us a fabulous band within our budget and available for our date. They made me feel reassured and confident in the band I was booking. Will definitely recommend!

I can't recommend FixTheMusic enough. The whole process was easy and that's what you want when organizing an event. Will definitely use them again, so much easier than sourcing yourself or on other sites. Excellent result, excellent service.
