The Matchsticks Reviews
    We would just like to say a huge thank you to The Matchsticks for making our wedding entertainment everything we had hoped for. The three members of the band were absolutely incredible and nothing was too much trouble. They worked with us to organise the playlist and the quality on the night was just amazing with all our friends and family commented on how amazing they were. They kept the atmosphere going all night, provided a range of songs to suit everyone and were highly professional from start to finish. Three genuinely lovely guys that completely smashed it.

    Absolutely loved this band! We had an amazing day overall and this was in no small part due to The Matchsticks blowing the crowd away! For me personally the set was great, full of anthems from my youth, classics and catchy modern pop songs with a rock twist. Everyone was complimenting them, not only as a band but as individual performers as well. Also a lovely bunch of blokes even in the face of my drunken hero worship! I would recommend this band to anyone.

    The Matchsticks were fantastic performing at our evening reception, we had the best time, dancing all night and so did our guests. The matchsticks got everybody up to dance and truly made the party one to remember! The Matchsticks burst of energy and fun, rocking vibe was perfect for our wedding and all of the band members are a true talent. Learning our first dance was no issue and the playlist was absolutely perfect. We hope to go to another wedding where they will be play, we will be sure to recommend The Matchsticks to anyone.

    We were all very impressed by The Matchsticks. Their set list was excellent, they tailored their performance based on our space availability, were good to communicate with in advance and were great guys to chat to before and during the interval too. Would highly recommend.

    Anthony Llewllyn - Wedding
    The Matchsticks exceeded all expectations. Everyone loved their sound and the energy they brought to our wedding reception. Our guests were blown away by the quality of the music and the songs they covered. I would pay good money to listen to the Matchsticks again and that sentiment was echoed by our guests. The guys were extremely friendly and professional and it was a pleasure to meet them. We will be using the Matchsticks again for future events. We can't praise them enough.

    The matchsticks were absolutely brilliant, honestly better than I had imagined- my only complaint is that the whole day was over too quick and I want to party to them all over again, as did all of our guests. No complaints at all. Lovely group of people, 100/10!!

    Thank you so so much again for your brilliant performance at our wedding on Saturday. You guys were amazing and so many people said you were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding! We absolutely loved it! If there is anywhere we can leave you a review then please let us know.

    Grace Bamford - Wedding
    3 super nice guys that showed up and absolutely made the wedding! Every song went down a storm and they completely nailed each one. The 2 sets they played went from strength to strength and had us all up dancing and singing our hearts out. The band were super accommodating – not only did they learn and play the song for the first dance, but they also agreed to learn an original song and allowed me to join them on stage to play with them! They actually played the song better than I’ve ever heard it too… The bride and groom were so happy with them and so was I. A top quality band that made the whole process so easy!

    Rick - Wedding
    We cannot recommend The Matchsticks highly enough! The communication, the set up and the performance were all amazing! The quality of the band was incredible and a number of guests commented on they thought songs were being streamed they were that good! The sounds of vocals and instruments were very professional and would've happily had them play for a lot longer! Thanks so much!

    Ben and Lucy - Wedding
    The Matchsticks were brilliant! We got so many comments from people on how much they enjoyed their music (from those dancing and from those not dancing), it hit all demographics! Everyone was very impressed with the guys and it really made the night. They were also very friendly and accommodating to our last-minute changes that we made on the wedding day. I would recommend them to anyone and hope hear them again at another wedding!
