Mike Paul-Smith Music Full Description
Mike Paul-Smith Music are an award-winning collective of professional musicians - available to hire in a range of line-ups for memorable weddings throughout the UK and abroad. Our main band line-up is THE GET DOWNS - and with this band, it's all about versatility. We have a huge repertoire, designed to appeal to audiences of all ages. Typically we start the night with swing and jive music, before moving on to soul, Motown and pop to keep everyone on the dancefloor. Or for a showstopping experience, check out the CAPITAL SOUNDS SHOWBAND - our premium party band which puts on a sensational show for your guests. You can then book a smaller group of musicians from the party band to provide entertainment for the rest of your day. Our WEDDING PIANIST can create more special memories by performing your favourite song whilst you walk up the aisle, and for the drinks reception our energetic wandering band THE VINTAGE STROLLERS put your guests in great spirits. Or for a more glamorous, sophisticated feel, our jazz band THE JAZZ HOURS creates a beautiful ambience with stunning renditions of jazz favourites. Here are four reasons to book Mike Paul-Smith Music for your wedding reception: (1) we formed in 2005 and over the past 18 years have performed at hundreds of weddings up and down the country and internationally; (2) We use top-of-the-range PA and lighting equipment to make sure each performance looks and sounds slick and professional; (3) We never use click tracks or backing tracks, giving our performance unrivalled energy and spontaneity you don't see with other wedding bands; (4) We pride ourselves on our personal service.

We had the absolute best time
I wanted to let you know how utterly fabulous the band was at our wedding on 20th May. We (and all of our guests - I truly have lost count of the number of compliments and excitement for the band!) were blown away and the whole evening was even better than we had imagined it would be. More than 75% of our guests are musicians and so the music was always going to be pretty much the most important part of our wedding day. Each musician in the band was faultless and we had the absolute best time.

A super classy addition to our day.
We hired the a duo for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception at the West Mill, Derby and couldn’t have been happier with our choice! A super classy addition to our day and created the perfect atmosphere for our guests. Mike was easy to communicate with and I would highly recommend Mike Paul-Smith Music in any combination for their talent and professionalism.

The band was absolutely stupendous.
I wanted to send you a note - also on behalf of Jamie and our families - to say thank you for such a wonderful evening on Saturday. The band was absolutely stupendous. They really made the party. And I am delighted we were able to squeeze the ten-piece into the room - worth it in every way! Please also extend my and Jamie's thanks to all ten members, and to our sound engineer for ensuring everything ran smoothly

They made our wedding for us!
Just wanted to write to express our gratitude for the amazing performance that you put on at our wedding reception. In the lead up to the day Mike was always on hand to answer any questions and was really helpful in the planning stages, supporting us to choose a first dance song and giving us total confidence in the band. They made our wedding for us! Thank you to Mike and all of the band.

We simply couldn't have been happier!
Dear Mike and Simon, I am mortified by how late this email is reaching you. Please forgive me. I cannot thank you and the band enough. We simply couldn't have been happier with everything you did for us and the feedback has been extraordinary. YOU NAILED IT! You looked great, you sounded great, you handled all our technical difficulties with aplomb...you helped us MAKE it. Thank you thank you thank you. We wish you all the success for the future. Emma

We haven’t hesitated to recommend you
Hi Mike, We just wanted to thank you so much for such a brilliant job last Sunday. We loved every second of the music, beginning with the ceremony and then for dancing in the Porter Tun. Our friends and family also had lots of fun on the dance floor and we have lost track of the amount of praise we have heard for Down for the Count. Everything was spot on. The brilliant rendition of I’m A Believer prompted some of our friends to start dancing and to get us dancing and that set the tone for the whole evening. The Jewish stuff was all great. I loved the clarinet. Hannah and Callum aced every song. You all really helped to make the party atmosphere we had been after. So thank you a lot for the combination of brilliant music and energy that you all brought to the evening. We haven’t hesitated to recommend you to anyone who has asked - not least because you were also a pleasure to deal with to the run-up to the wedding. We hope you get further business from guests at our wedding. Thanks again, and all best wishes.
