The Get Down Reviews
    From start to finish The Get Down were amazing! The dance floor was filled all night and were begging for more at the end of the evening! Many people took the Bands details from me and asked where we found them! Truly professional throughout and definitely added to the Happy couples special day! Thank you so much!!

    The Get Down were absolutely fantastic! They were exactly what we wanted - good quality performance that was fun and kept the party going. They sounded great and joined in/ were a part of the fun we were having. So many of our guests told us they were amazing and were asking us where we found them. Would highly recommend them to anyone!! Thank you!

    Emma Gliddon - Wedding
    The Get Down really brought our evening wedding reception to life! They blended the usual crowd pleaser's with our long list of indie requests across their 3 sets. We loved them and so did our guests, as the band could hopefully tell from all the crazy dancing! Thank you!

    Catherine Sandwell - Wedding
    We thought The Get Down were fantastic. They had a great repertoire, and played brilliantly on the evening, with great energy. The dance floor at our wedding was never empty whilst these guys were playing, and our guests commented on how good they were. They were extremely professional, both in communicating beforehand, and on the day, and the transition from them to our iPod disco was seamless as well - they were so efficient and aware of timings that they also queued up the song we wanted to play last before being asked.

    Happy to say that we really liked The Get Down, they were great. The singer and band sounded great, they arrived on time, set up in a prompt manner and were ready to go. The whole process was very easy and I'd happily recommend both the band and the website to others should anyone be after your services.

    Lisa Dalton - CJAM Limited Corporate Event
    Thanks very much to contributing to our special day, The Get Down proved to be an excellent choice. From the first to last song the dance floor was crowded. I received very favourable responses, the band's musicianship and performance was brilliant, a great delivery from the band especially the female singer who engaged and interacted with everyone - especially good with the enthusiastic children.

    Katie Thorpe - Annual Company Conference
    We were nervous about booking band without seeing them perform live, but they surpassed our expectations. They really got the party going, played interesting covers of the songs they chose, and were very professional and polite.

    Jade Tidy - Wedding
    The Get Down weren't the first band we tried to hire for our wedding, but we are really glad that the others weren't available because The Get Down really played a huge part in making our wedding one of the best days ever! They were absolutely awesome, got everyone on the dancefloor straight away, and played a great set at high quality to keep everyone there for the rest of the night. Everyone loved it, and we had many, many people comment specifically on the quality of the band to us afterwards. Thank you so much, we had such a good time! Would recommend without a doubt.

    Jonathan Absolon - Wedding
    Thank you so so much for making our wedding day even more special. Friends and family all really enjoyed the music and everyone said what a good vibe it was in the room. This experience was only made better by the get down, who were professional, seamless and clearly very talented. A great band and I would use again. Keep on playing guys and thanks again.

    Jonny Day - Wedding
    The Get Down were absolutely brilliant. They joined in with an impromptu rendition of With or Without You during the best man's speech, played our first dance song from our playlist then kicked off the live music with perfect timing, and with a great setlist the dancefloor was packed right till the bitter end! They were also lovely and easy to deal with before and during the day, and we couldn't recommend them more.

    Emily Elphinstone - Wedding
    The Get Down were fantastic. Fun, lively, great repertoire, had their own excellent take on well known songs. From the acoustic set early afternoon to the late night up beat dance numbers, they were faultless throughout. One of the best wedding bands I have heard/seen and made a wonderful day that bit more special.
