"Sam!

We cannot thank you and the rest of the band enough for everything last weekend! The music in the ceremony exceeded all of our expectations - Todd, our registrar, said it all: it really was a very special cover of Love Like a Sunset, and both emphasised Millie’s entrance whilst putting us both at ease. And rocking out the room to The Libertines brought a smile to everyone’s faces!

At the Troubadour, you guys brought the party! The set list was immaculate from start to finish - I recall mentioning it a couple of times during the night, but you guys really were stars! Everyone we spoke to on Sunday was saying that the music was a genuine highlight, with “banger after banger after banger”. It was amazing to see the majority of people still dancing away until the last song - which, for Millie, had to be something from Mamma Mia!

We also just wanted to say that your professionalism in the lead up to the wedding also took all of the stress out of organising things for us, between your truly rapid response times, your flexibility in our song choices and managing logistics with the Troubadour. Please do let us know if there is any process for us writing a review for you guys - we would absolutely love to sing your praises!

We’re expecting pictures from our photographer during the course of next week, and our friends are drip-feeding us with pictures and videos from their phones. We’ll send over a couple of good ones when we get them through!

All the best

Millie and Chris"

"Thank you so much to Sam and the band for being absolutely incredible on our wedding day in June 2024. We had the acoustic duo (guitar and saxophonist) at our reception drinks after the ceremony and they were perfect. They set the relaxed atmosphere that we really wanted to help our guests get in the celebration mood. The volume and choice of music was exactly right and we were so happy we decided to add them to our package. We then had a 5-piece band for the evening which included the sax. They were also exceptional and we have had many compliments on our band choice. The band have an extensive set list and were super flexible to accommodate what we wanted for our first dance to blend two songs together seamlessly. The dance floor was absolutely packed from start to finish and the band’s energy was a huge factor. Sam went above and beyond from our first enquiry through to the day happily taking calls, answering questions and emails really quickly and making us feel that everything was under control. We couldn’t recommend Sam and the band enough. It was a pleasure to have them at our wedding and we wish we had another event to see them again!"

So many of our guests commented on how great the music was. Really professional, responded super quickly. They sorted all the set up on the day no fuss at all and rolled with the delays!

"We were lucky enough to have a recommendation for The Manhattans but for anyone who feels they just don't know where to start with seeking their perfect band we have absolutely no hesitation in telling you to book these guys. Communication along the way was very straightforward, Sam was very happy to answer any questions and accommodate any special requests. They really know their audience, fantastic energy yet calm and well organised plus not forgetting fabulous musicians. Sam plus one other musician played during the ceremony and drinks reception, moving on to a four piece band for the evening. So many positive comments from our guests....just wish we could do it all over again!! Thank you so much, Wendy."

"The Manhattans made our special day even more special. They couldn't have made it any easier for us (leading up to and through the evening) and all our guests were absolutely blown away by the music. Sam covered the time from 18:30 through to 01:00 with a mixture of full band, sax and guitar only and DJ seamlessly. Honestly I can't say enough about them and would highly highly recommend them as the band to cover your wedding and/or any other special occasion. Thanks again guys, Cheers, John Harrison."

"5 Stars - JUST BOOK THEM! The band were great, very flexible even though we were running late. The music was for everyone and had all generations on the dance floor. Biggest downside was that we couldn’t keep them for longer! We had two zooms in the run up to talk through logistics and musical preferences and were then sent the band's playlist from which we could choose our favourites. All in all they made the evening."

"The Manhattans were an absolute sensation at our wedding! They effortlessly had everything under control, from ensuring the dance floor was packed, to coordinating the perfect lighting colours for the cake cutting and first dance. Through the run up and on the day the band made us feel at ease with their clear plan and professionalism, plus they injected humour and fun into the mix, making every moment enjoyable. They trusted we knew our guests and combined that with their experience, even learning new songs to add some Disney Moana magic and ensuring our first dance was perfectly personal. Most importantly they are excellent musicians who delivered exceptional performances. There is nothing they could’ve done to make our experience better. What's the lesson? What is the takeaway? Book The Manhattans for your wedding day!"

"We booked The Manhattans for our wedding celebration at Holkham Hall in Norfolk in July 2022. We had looked at various bands via video clips and repertoire lists, and what we saw from The Manhattans made us feel that we would be in good hands. As it turned out, we were in brilliant hands! These guys are sophisticated musicians with tremendous, international experience. From the moment that Sam replied to us, it was obvious that we were able to rely on him and his colleagues to take over. Sam was very efficient about connecting with us and making suggestions, clearly aware that the couple has plenty to juggle ahead of the day and, once we had chatted through a few ideas, he was away and on it. The way that the team arrived and set up was super professional, and the two sets that they played, with DJ interlude, were just fantastic! If you want a great sound, designed to get all on their feet, played by very cool musicians who are super people, look no further! Sam and The Manhattans made sure that we all had a superb evening and we have heard and read nothing but glowing compliments about them from all our guests since that evening! The Manhattans are a top class band and wonderful people, and the joy and quality with which they play is super contagious! Thank you so much, The Manhattans, for the very happy time that you gave us all! David and Sheryl."

From our initial phone call and throughout the entire process leading up to the big day, they were super responsive, professional and helpful (and fun!). Sam’s voice is unparalleled and all the band members are very talented musicians and performers. We used them for an acoustic set during our ceremony, DJ services during cocktail hour, as MC throughout the evening, and then the 6-piece band for dancing. At our request, they learned several new songs ahead of time for our ceremony and first dances. Each part was executed perfectly and exactly as we imagined. They were incredible in terms of set lists and interacting with our friends and family. All our guests were up on their feet dancing the entire night! We had so many guests come up to us afterwards and ask how we were able to find such an incredible band.

"The band were great and really professional throughout the booking process and on the day. They arrived 2 hours before the set up time and were able to rehearse and get set up with time to spare. Sam and the band were also accommodating by allowing us to use the mic to make some announcements during their break and took some requests for songs during that intermission from some of the guests. During the end of the second set with 15 minutes remaining, the hotel security informed us that there had been some complaints over noise so Sam was able to adjust his set and play quieter to ensure there was no further disturbance. Both sets were made up of great songs that were loved by the guests and many were dancing and singing along. The great reception to some of the tracks prompted the band to then play more from that artist and they tailored the set to what people were enjoying and what was getting a great response. From both a booking and arranging, and performance point of view, The Manhattans were fantastic and I would happily recommend them in the future."
