Myself and Lizzie would like to say a huge thank you for your excellent  work on Saturday evening! All of our guests said that you made the night extra special.

Your professionalism was second to none and your energy and enthusiasm was brilliant! We loved the interactive element you had with us and the guests and we were delighted that you filled the dancefloor for the duration of your sets! 

We couldn't have asked for anything different and will definitely be recommending you to everyone we speak to! It was perfect.

We will definitely be sharing your social pages and will also leave a positive review on each and every page we can find for you! 

We wish you every success for the future!

After recommendation we decided to book The contraband for our wedding evening reception and what can I say! They were truly amazing from start to finish. We have had so many compliments about them. The audience participation was brilliant. You really did make our evening something to remember. I can’t recommend enough. Thank you once again.

Just want to say a massive thank you to you all for making our wedding evening celebrations the best night ever. From starting the set singing our first dance song to ending it with James on stage with you ‘rocking’ - it truly was an amazing evening and the dancefloor was never empty. We loved all of the songs you played and the limbo was great fun. Would recommend you to anyone Thank you for making our night and we can’t wait to see you play again soon.

We actually wanted The Contraband for our initial wedding date but they were unavailable. However, we found out the lads were available for our new date in 2021 and we booked them up straight away.
We heard good stuff about them, however, after having them at our wedding for our live band, the ‘good stuff’ we heard didn’t justify the live performance for the evening.
They got everyone up and dancing, made me look like a professional guitar player and made the Bride and Bridesmaids bring out their inner Amy Winehouse.
The Contraband are not just a band, they are entertainers and bring laughs and giggles to the Evening Do of a wedding (seeing and hearing two groups ‘shouting’ Hey Jude at each other is a LOL in itself).
If you want a great night of entertainment and a band who genuinely care about putting on a show - get The Contraband booked today!

We hired The Contraband for a combined birthday/anniversary party at the Beverley Barn. I always think the band can make or break a good party and these guys certainly MADE ours!! Absolutely fantastic - so much energy, so much fun, and so much dancing. They really got everyone young, old and all in between up and involved - utterly brilliant. I would definitely recommend them and will definitely be booking them again. 5 stars and a massive thank you from me

Wow, what an amazing band!
The front man Nick is fantastic and nothing is too much trouble.
We recently hired the Contraband to play at a Birthday party at the Double Tree Hilton in Hull and they were just brilliant. All of our guests have commented on just how good they are. I would have another party just to be able to hire them again and dance the night away!
Thank you so much to the Contraband for rocking our party!

We had the absolute delight of having The Contraband at our wedding in September at Rise Hall. They were absolutely everything and more that we could have hoped for. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Our guests loved it and we were so proud to have them. Thankyou for a wonderful time. Allie & Rich xx
