The Tricks Reviews
    The Tricks were absolutely incredible. They nailed our first dance and performed it was even better than we could have hoped! The band were able to create an incredible atmosphere that really got the party going and they were able to read the crowd and amend the playlist accordingly. They also integrated some personal touches into the songs which we had requested but were not expecting them to be able to do! Everyone who attended the wedding commented on how amazing the band were! Thank you for making our special day even more special!!!

    Can’t thank Bands for Hire enough for organising The Tricks to play at our wedding. The band were fantastic and had everyone on the dance floor, all night! They were complete professionals and great fun at the same time. All of our guests, friends and family were hugely impressed by the band and are one of the biggest talking points since the day! Huge, huge thanks to Yiannis and the rest of the Band for the day and playing our first dance!

    Rachel & Chris - Wedding
    Brilliant! The Tricks are every bit as good as their promotional videos. They had our party for 300 people rocking with a full dance floor. The guys are very friendly and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend The Tricks to anyone. Thanks guys, superb.

    Richard Hill - Private Party
    The Tricks were BIBLICAL and really made mine and my wife’s day. All we have heard from guests since is how amazing they were and for contact details. They were unique and kept the dance floor full all evening. The afternoon set was just brilliant and guests have said how enjoyable it was to have some live music whilst mingling with other guests. We honestly couldn’t have wished for a better band to have at our wedding. Thank you to the Tricks, special thanks for letting me up and singing with them at the end (Even if I did sound terrible!) ha! We will never forget the night we had the time of our lives! Thanks also to Bands for Hire. The whole experience has been so brilliant. If ever I need a band, I know where to come.

    Martin - Wedding
    The Tricks were superb, everything we hoped for and more. They not only played the songs we'd requested from their repertoire flawlessly, they learnt a new song for our first dance and provided great energy to get everyone up and dancing. We were asked if we'd recommend them to our friends and family but that won't be necessary because they saw their performance and commented to us that they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen. We can't thank them enough and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

    James Budnik - Wedding
    The Tricks performed at our wedding on the 27th April and we were very happy with the service provided. They played 2 acoustic sets outdoors in the afternoon and then 3 40 minute sets in the evening. We hired them based on a recommendation and on the example set lists on their website. The communication beforehand was straightforward and included musical 'likes and dislikes' so they could plan their set to match our musical taste. The performance was energetic, sounded great and was enjoyed by all our guests. We would have no hesitation recommending them to friends and family in the future.
    ★★★★★
    Neil Botting - Wedding
    We were really pleased with the band and their performance! They were really good at getting the crowd going and keeping people from leaving the dance floor! Lots of positive comments from lots of our guests. A quote from the fathers bride who is 69- ‘the best wedding band he has ever seen!’
    ★★★★★
    Graham Evans - Wedding
    The Tricks were brilliant from start to finish - friendly and quick to respond over email, accommodating to all our requests including learning a new and somewhat challenging song for our first dance. And on the day, they set the dance floor alight and really got the party started! We loved every minute and look forward to seeing them at another gig soon!

    Barry Andrews - Christmas Party
    The Tricks played at my wedding and we had so many positive comments from guests about how enjoyable the music was that the band played. We also heard that some of our guests were dancing to the acoustic set played throughout our drinks reception! Great band, would definitely recommend them.
