Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Hard to Handle wedding band
Hi, thank you so much for taking a look at HARD TO HANDLE BAND. We'd like you to know that you don't have to hire a large events band featuring multiple wedding musicians to get your guests on the dance floor and keep them there all night. Our compact three piece line up features male vocals (we all sing lead), guitar, bass, drums and occassional keyboards, creating a surprsingly full live band sound without the need for cheesy backing tracks or additional musicians!

100% recommend!!!
Brilliant band and 100% recommend!!! We had them for our wedding in Somerset. Great communication, played all of the type of music we requested, they got everyone up dancing (and laughing with their sense of humour) and it was all done in a professional way. Hope one of our friends uses them in the future so we get to see them again. A big thanks guys! Love, the new Mr and Mrs Powell xxx Kay and Andrew – wedding reception, Coombe Lodge, Somerset, February 2020

Perfect for our party.
We hired Hard To Handle for our wedding after seeing them play at a friend's wedding about 5 years ago. Needless to say, we were not disappointed as these guys have really kept their edge, and from start to finish these guys were incredibly professional, really making our reception rock! The music was perfect for our party (including the impromptu instrumental played whilst the bride and bridesmaids did their thing!), and had everyone up and dancing the night away. The guys kept going right up till the end, and were just excellent throughout. Real quality musicians! Would highly recommend, and hope to see you no doubt at other friends weddings in the future :-) Ian and Laura – wedding reception, Prescott Hill, Gloucestershire, October, 2019

Rave reviews from our guests.
We booked Hard to Hard for our wedding at Elmore Court. From the beginning we had excellent communication from the band regarding timings, playlist etc. On the day everything was seamless and we had rave reviews from our guests! They really know how to read the room and kept the dance floor full. Thanks guys :) Jodie and Andy – wedding reception, Elmore Court, Gloucestershire, October 2019

Communication was second to none
We had hard to handle at our wedding in August 2019. They were fantastic! They sang our chosen songs and then ensured that they had our wedding party up and dancing all night. They were so enthusiastic and attempted to fit in all requests. They were professional and their communication was second to none. We would definitely use them again at any parties or celebrations we have and would highly recommend anyone else to use them too!
