Our original band cancelled on us and I was heart broken but those annoying words ‘it will all be okay’ were beyond true in this instance. Furious Styles came to our rescue just four months before the wedding and I don’t know how we managed to get them, they are incredible. My biggest fear of the wedding was that nobody would dance and this is not a fear you need to have if Furious Styles are in charge of your entertainment.
Jonny and I struggled to decide our first dance song and the band took it all in their stride when we only confirmed it with them the day before the wedding. Just to show how good they are, about 10 mins before our first dance they asked if we wanted them to cover the song or have the original track played. We were so surprised they could do it live as everything was so last minute and our first dance wasn’t particularly well known (Arctic Monkeys, Baby I’m yours) but they absolutely smashed it.
I was really impressed at how they handled other things too, they had been in secret talks with my Mum about arranging sets around our surprise fireworks and they gave nothing away. They also had to manage setting up and doing a soundcheck behind a reveal without any guests noticing.
The key thing though was that the dance floor was packed all night and they even let me get on the mic (sorry guests!). Whilst the band let you choose the songs they play including some top notch medleys, they add their own twist and they make your wedding feel like a gig (or a festival in their words) rather than an evening do with a band.
I know it’s really hard to pick a band when you rarely get to see them live but these guys really are amazing and our guests still talk to us about them now! We had the 6 piece band but they can do anything from duos to a 10 piece. Here’s there trailer so you can see for yourself…
