"We want to extend a huge thank you to all the guys in the band, we really mean it when we say that they made our night! They were absolutely fantastic!!! A month later and all our guests are still raving about how brilliant the band were. We’ve never been to a wedding where the band displayed such enthusiasm throughout the whole night. There was an unwavering display of energy, excitement and fun from the band the whole night through and it made for one hell of a party! And on top of it all, they are super talented and made it look so effortless. Thank you once again for everything!"

"We booked The Throwbacks for our wedding, at Casa do Lago, on recommendation, and we are so pleased we did. The duo that played through the ceremony was excellent, but once the full band started up after dinner nobody was sitting down for long. Even my 80-year-old mother was up dancing all night and said she hadn't enjoyed herself so much in years. They were extremely helpful when we tried to decide on music for the ceremony. Their wide and varied playlist has something for everyone's tastes. If you are looking for the perfect live band for any occasion, look no further than these guys, but you'd better give plenty of notice because they are so popular. Thank you thank you!!"

"I just wanted to say how incredibly impressed we were with The Throwbacks – far beyond anything we have ever experienced or even imagined in terms of sheer entertainment for our daughter’s wedding at Penha Longa. We cannot thank you enough! You quickly got a feel for the mood of the wedding guests and played the perfect mix of music to the extent that all ages were dancing together and having a real party! The way you interacted with the guests, joining them on the dance floor with your instruments and even inviting those who could play to contribute to the music, was an absolute pleasure. Your enthusiasm, energy and passion for what you do, as well as your virtuosity and sheer talent left us spellbound. If ever we have an event in the UK we will certainly be inviting you to come over and play here as so many of our guests, young and old, commented that they have never seen anything as good as your performance. So thank you!"

"We knew we wanted to book The Throwbacks from the very beginning and we are so pleased we found them. Lovely people, talented musicians and a great day filled with so much music. Our guests commented on how wonderful the band were and many of our friends are musicians themselves, so a tough crowd! The band allowed my husband to play drums with them for a few songs as well as some of the wedding guests, which really made our night Thanks for being a big part of our day"
