Wedding Band

Simon and all the band,


We just wanted say a huge thank you to you and all the band for the wedding on Saturday. Between you all - afternoon and of course the evening - you created just the atmosphere we were hoping for. There were so many compliments about you guys and the blend of styles pulled off so effortlessly. I know as seasoned pros this probably comes as second nature to you but it really showed how well and tightly you all worked together and the real enjoyment you put into the music. You really helped to create a very special day for everyone and of course Nats and Ross. Thanks so much.

Andy and Jenny Scott ( Bride's parents )

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the band and you for making our wedding day so wonderful. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone has nothing but praise for you, we have already had a few people ask for your details to recommend you on to friends. The guys were so friendly on the night and Danica really got everyone going on the dance floor.


We were also really impressed with the help we had from you leading up to the wedding. E-mails were always responded to promptly and you were really accommodating in our requests, including agreeing to play All I Want for Christmas after Christmas day! We have a few photos of the band from our photographer and will send them though if you are interested.


So thanks again for helping make our day so special and so much fun. You were absolutely fabulous and I would have no issues recommending you to anyone.

Nicola & George.

Wow! What a wedding - we could not have wished for a better day. Really magical. Everyone so enjoyed the band and the fact that the dance floor was full all night was a testament to your playing. Many thanks to you all. From 'Rainy Night in Soho' to Jumping Jack Flash you all excelled!


No more daughters I'm afraid but I will recommend you to those that have!


With best wishes and thanks to you all.


We would like to say a huge thank you to Pastiche Band for an utterly fantastic performance at our wedding... the dance floor was full all night... one encore clearly wasn’t enough for our guests... quite a few people said you are the best band ever.

Conor and Becky. London

Thank you to you and your band for playing brilliantly at our wedding.


All our guests commented positively on your performance, indeed your approach ensured almost every one got up to dance. The highlights for me were ‘Here come the girls’ (Sugarbabes) for the throwing of my flowers, our first dance, ‘Have I told you how much I lovely lately’( Rod Stewart), and the song which tore down the house was ‘Living on a Prayer’ Bon Jovi, awesome! The band instruments were fantastic, and we will definitely use Pastiche again in the future.


Simon - thank you for your professionalism throughout and for ensuring our guests, Andrew and I had a truly memorable experience.


Thank you!!! Everyone has said how amazing you all were and I couldn't agree more! Perfect!!

Camilla - August 2014

I wanted to write to say a huge thank you for your wonderful band, we all enjoyed your music so much. Andrew was thrilled he got to sing with you, I think it made his night. Your band were so friendly and hospitable and you seemed to judge the mood of our guests so perfectly, that everyone had a really good dance.


Thank you once again,


Charlotte. London

I have to say the band were superb and everyone was very impressed with them. We had an amazing night so thanks very much... only wish you could have played to the early hours!


I will highly recommend you to our friends.

We just wanted to write to say a huge thanks for being part of our wedding reception on Friday. The music was absolutely fantastic and it was amazing to see the dance floor so full throughout the night, all the way to the end! We both really enjoyed our first dance and thought it was such a lovely touch to be able to dance to it at the end with all of our friends and family.


Thank you again and best wishes,

A huge thank you for to you and the rest of Pastiche for letting me sing with you on the weekend! (Pastiche were brilliant... so I was honored to be able to join you for a song).


Despite the nerves I did enjoy it once I was up there - the look on Sam and Chris' face (and everyone else for that matter!) was worth the stress on the day.


Thanks again,


Not long got back from honeymoon and been meaning to drop you a line. Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you and your wonderful band, you guys were brilliant and the lady that did the calling was wonderful, really made our night. We have had lots of compliments on our band choice so it's been great. And a couple of people have asked for your details, one person said they couldn't get over how much variety you guys can play which is partly the reason I picked your band.


All of the time I spent trawling the internet looking for a band to play at a wedding now feels very worth it.

Nicola Stanley.

We wanted to let you know how impressed we were with the band on Saturday night. Everything was perfect and we are getting lots of questions and compliments about Pastiche. Everyone really enjoyed the music.


Thanks again!

Amelia & Joe.

We just wanted to say thank you so very much for the fantastic entertainment you provided for us, and our guests at our Wedding. We couldn’t fault the music, and neither could our guests who all had a great time. Both our parents in particular loved the band.


Thank you for all your time and effort in the lead up to the day, and for your constant professionalism throughout the process. You were a constant source of reassurance. Please extend our thanks and gratitude to the band members, and in particular to Danica who was fabulous. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves too.


sincerest regards,

Zac & Jodie.

Pastiche Ceilidh Band

Adam and I wanted to thank you for such a stunning performance at our wedding at the Corinthia Hotel back in September. Your energy, skill and enthusiasm was absolutely perfect and really got the party going straight from the off. It was great to have the combination of ceilidh and covers and we had so many compliments from our guests.


Everyone could tell that you were all really enjoying it and that just seemed to transfer to all of our guests. Thank you again.

Justin and Adam – September 2014

Many thanks for your wonderful performance at our wedding yesterday. Everyone loved your music, the excellent singing and the ceilidh dancing (even though our guests' dancing leaves much room for improvement!) Thanks,

Rowan and Phil – September 2014.

I just wanted to write and say such a big thank you from us all for providing us with such fantastic entertainment and music on Saturday night! You were fantastic.

Mike and Rebecca.

Hi Simon, Just a follow up to say how much we enjoyed having you and the rest of Pastiche at the party on Saturday. I have heard from many people how much they enjoyed the band.


Hope we can have you back again for future events. Many thanks again, and please pass on our appreciation to the others.

Andy, Adventure Impact Coordinator.

We would just like to say a HUGE 'Thank You' to each one of you for the brilliant music on Saturday night - Danica, you have an amazing voice. So many people have been saying how wonderful it was to have a live band and how much fun you made it. It was amazing that you were so flexible to be able to play Scottish dancing music.


So many of the young are saying that they were thrilled to learn how to do the reeling and definitely want to repeat the experience.

Love Susie xxx

The band were a great success and deserved the round of applause they were given at the end of the evening.


Many thanks,

John and Elizabeth.

Just wanted to send a MASSIVE Thank You! The band were BRILL last night and I was bopping away behind the bar. Please, please send my love and thanks to the gang – Really, Really pleased.


Hope we can work together again soon and mega thanks again!


Dear Simon, I have to say that you were totally brilliant. It was such a shame we had to stop at 11 as I think you would have had my guests dancing all night long!


The music you played during drinks and dinner was absolutely spot on too Please could you pass on my heartfelt thanks to each member of the band – I can’t wait to have another party and get you back!


Thanks again, Best wishes,


Dear Pastiche, Thank you for such a great evening of music. You were all totally brilliant and there were so many comments about how amazingly versatile you are. The music and evening was enjoyed by all and it was so great to get everyone on the dance floor.


It was such a great addition to the evening to have such a fantastic band and it wouldn't have been the same without you. Thank you for making it a party to remember!


Best wishes,


Hi, it was amazing. The band were fabulous, everyone was asking about them, so you could get future bookings!


A great recommendation, the night flew by and we were tempted to ask them to play on as we were all having such a great time.


Thanks again - you guys were great as always and everyone had a brilliant night - me particularly! Sunday was a little jaded, but it was all worth it.

Guy. February 2015.
